Zimmer was dressed much better as Echo on OLTL...in blazers and clothes that fit properly.

 

AMC had a deep with New York and Co...so I'm not not sure why P & G couldn't have done something similar 

 

A guess on my part but perhaps the production companies behind AMC and OLTL cared more than P&G did at that point. By the early aughts P&G seemed past the point of caring.

 

The sad thing about filming every other interior as if it were happening at the Lakeview is that you know it could have still been worse-- it could've been shot at The Stratford Arms. Remember that place? Lucinda owned it and it was rumored to be a real dump!

Wow! How did Alan get her? 

 

He probably just asked, tbh.

Others could've been doing what he's doing but over the years, especially since the end of ATWT and GL, I have gotten the sense that the soap blogs out there weren't interested in most of the actors from these shows unless they were on one of the remaining soaps or considered "hot" and "current".

 

Prinz has relevance and fans of the show need to show up and give these icons their "flowers" while they're still around to receive them (regardless of how we may feel about the host).

 

All those so-called fans better show up.

 

 

In the back of my mind, the thought also surfaces that maybe someone from P&G could look at the views and gauge if there is any interest in doing another collection of these shows (a la SoapClassics). Judging from the views of classic episodes, there would be no reason to do any further box sets in the future.

I agree.  I have seen several veteran soap actors, such as Nicolas Coster and Marilyn Chris, indicating on FB that they would be interested in doing something like this when they see posts about one of these shows.

That scene where Lucinda informs her new butler that she calls all her butlers "Matthew", despite the fact that his name is Steven.

 

Such a good era..the best of Marland before we got mired in Synderville and depression.  I love the dialogue of little things that make it seem real..Annie and Dee coming in for Easter and staying for the party, etc. Poor McClaughlin was really frail and I love how Hays is so gentle with him as she takes him off stage...P & G actaully cared then as opposed to what they would do later with Zaz, etc.  I love the Lisa/Babs issues and how the hell could Marland think that Holmes would make a good Tom after seeing Marx play him?
