I'm way behind on the Locher Room episodes, but I just managed to watch the Snyder kids episode. I know most people around here aren't very fond of that era and may not have watched it, but I just wanted to share a few thoughts:

Mick seems like a really nice, down to earth guy. I guess that doesn't really come as a surprise, as he always seemed that way, but it's nice to see it affirmed. I'm pretty sure he's been on the show longer than any of the other people in that episode (well, I guess Allie was there for the same length of time), yet he never once tried to draw attention to himself. I wish we could have heard more from him. I love that he's still in touch with Michael Park and they play golf regularly. 

I was struck by how much Christopher Tavani reminded me of his on-screen brother Agim Kaba. I know they were on around the same time, though I don't remember seeing them together much, but they seem really well-cast as family members.

I wish Ashley Marie Greiner would have been a part of the episode. No offense to Valentina, but she'd been Faith for much longer. Plus, with the hints that were dropped by Elizabeth Hubbard, I would have been interested to hear her take on what happened (though I guess it may be the reason why she wouldn't want to be on).

Regarding the Frannie/Sabrina casting: I remember Don Hastings discussing how time consuming it was to halt taping in order to re-dress/hairstyle Julianne Moore as the other character.  That was probably a major factor in the decision to cast two separate actresses in 1991.

I think there was an article here which suggested Marland created a dual role for Julianne Moore because P&G wasn't sure about her and he wanted to prove her talent. If that is the case, it would further explain why they didn't bother afterward. It's just a shame Sabrina lost most of her inner life after the recast.

Hi all

I found an article on Rosemary Prinz from 1968 that mentions her final airdate will be June 14, 1968 before she was to start a new play. For anyone who keeps track of cast airdates

From her previous interviews, I got the distinct impression that she didn't want to be tied to a soap, she wanted the freedom to do theater, where and whenever she wanted.

From her Locher Room interview, she also gave the impression that her interactions with Irna Phillips left a really bad taste for a really long time.

    • Don't do it. They take your money, keep you hanging for weeks and then block you.  I learnt the hard way when I had to try and reclaim a lot of money back.  I reported them over and over but FB won't take the page down. 
    • I really like that cast photo: Kay holding tight onto Brock like he is her lover whereas Jill and Phillip Sr oose so much swinging seventies...
    • These assessments heavily rely on when you STARTED watching (or stopped LOL) because of the sheer length of B&B's timeline by now: Due to Caroline's death, the whole relationship has the perfect romance status - forever. Even though the last time we have seen Caroline was her ghostly visit in January 2021. Ridge had to FIGHT for Caroline and he had the chance to GRIEVE for Caroline. (Something that has rarely happened since because pacing nowadays is soooo different!). For me Taylor was always Ridge's second perfect love. Now that I've seen 1990-1992 it is a little harder to fall this assumption because I had no idea hoq quick the shift  of commitment happened in 1992. However, from 1993-2002 there was zero possibility for that Ridge actually loved Brooke. She was a caniving h* who always used her children for her own benefit and desperate need to cling onto Ridge.  Ever since the show shifted to Nick/Brooke/Ridge and Bill/Brooke/Ridge we have entered a whole new aera in the traingel business which made Brooke much more liekable for me, but the perfect romance never involved Ridge.  
    • I am watching early 1991 right now and to me it is obvious that Ridge is attracted to Taylor but more emotionally involved with Brooke, although he has given up on her because she's marrying his dad (kind of like he tried to give up Caroline after she married Thorne and dated Brooke instead). Another thing that is obvious is how Brooke is clearly more in love with Ridge than with Eric, and that that marriage was doomed before it began (Brooke dreaming about marrying Ridge on her wedding day to Eric).  I agree that after Thorne, Grant was Macy's best pairing. He was very good with her and cared very deeply about her happiness. I think Macy as a character was very sensitive to OOC writing and it showed in the storylines the months before both her deaths. Because she was usually so decent and sweet, she didn't have a lot of leeway, so anytime she broke that pattern it made you go "whoa..." and it didn't always ring true. Usually it was her interactions with Brooke that pulled her out of character because Macy was shown to truly hate Brooke and it wasn't really in her nature to be hateful, bitter or vindictive (she usually ended up on friendly or at least civil terms with all her rivals - even becoming best friends with Karen). Also, she was more aggressive with Brooke than I'd say was believable for Macy (it was more in character for Macy to turn that destructiveness inward). But it went both ways - Brooke also showed her absolute worst side in her interactions with Macy to the point where it was almost OOC (I never really knew Brooke to be quite as gleefully sadistic with anyone else as she was with Macy - like when she sent her a drink, or when she casually suggested that Macy's mother was dead just to see Macy's reaction). 
    • That has definitely been around for a while. Don't think it is photoshopped. I have seen it in 70's mags, just much smaller and B&W  Also there is a different shot of Jeanne, Brenda and Donnelly from this same shoot. All in same clothes but just the three of them and grouped differently. Here it is from a 70's mag but can't remember which one.      Please register in order to view this content Now I look, the B&W one is slightly different. Bill Espy has crossed arms and Brenda is looking more straight on to the camera.  Oh the one with Brenda, Jeanne and Donnelly is definitely a composite from the above cast shot. Just realised that, haha
