80s ATWT had so many instances of double entendre and innuendo, it's incredible how, as an adult watching episodes, I now see these subtle references sprinkled throughout. Like the episodes surrounding the opening of the Mona Lisa when Sierra and her husband Tonio are sort of on the outs because Sierra called out Craig's name during lovemaking (Sierra had been fantasizing about Craig, in order to ahem, "be" with Tonio. Well, at the Mona Lisa opening, Craig looks at Sierra and says "Thanks for coming", the way Sierra looks back at him, left me thinking that she should have said "Thanks for helping me".

I'd  certainly watch him over Roger Howarth.

I remember people saying he was too pretty to be Paul and that it made no sense that Paul would've gotten into the fashion world.

Considering what we got afterwards... A guy who didn't look like his parents and looked older than CZP. Awful loud mouth over the top over rated Roger Howarth.

 

And Sarah.. My god was she boring!

Pretty brilliant. It's akin to peeling back the layers of an onion, when you find something new with each viewing.

It's no different than seeing episodes of The Golden Girls as an adult, and picking up references that you didn't "get" when you watched as a child. It's how shows remain relevant, tbh. You can't have every piece of dialogue mothballed in time.

Judge Lowell never made it to the 80s. The last year the character was on the cast list is 1978 or maybe 1979. I don't think he was seen much in the few years prior to that. He was most definitely not on the show in the 80s. 

You are correct. Judge Lowell's last appearance was, I believe, in 1978.

Granpa Hughes was married to Mrs Kopechne in July 75 and didn't that all happen offscreen?

We never saw Irma. Her entire relationship with Grandpa Hughes took place off-screen. It was cute, to a degree, but after a while, I think most viewers wanted to "meet" the woman who had captured Grandpa's heart.

I imagine the funeral was offscreen also

No, the funeral was televised. Dr. Bob gave a moving eulogy, explaining that Irma was too grief-stricken to be present that day, and was with her family. I would have been REALLY VEXED if the show had skipped right over the service (the way TPTB did with Mary Matthews on AW, Bert Bauer on TGL, Mattie Lane Grimsley on TEON, etc.) I remember Chris Hughes thanking Nancy for being so kind and loving to his father for so many years, and Nancy replied, "Of course, dear. You see, he was MY FATHER TOO." I lost it and sobbed for several minutes.

Rosemary Prinz did NOT appear on the show in 1979. IMDB is often wrong and poorly maintained. Bob gets a phone call from Penny, whom we do not see. He then leaves for a while. I imagine this may have been a story the interim writers set up that the Dobsons dropped, as it was more interesting to have a pornstache weirdo dominate the canvas. 

There is some talk about the recast  Penny earlier in the thread. Most of us never saw her.

The endless mistakes on imdb, soapcentral, and many other places around the internet is frustrating. It's like fangurls and fanboyz just make stuff up in their heads and post it as "fact."

Your best bet would be if anyone who watched then would know. @vetsoapfan may be able to help.

Phoebe Dorin appeared to be a decent actress, and she did resemble Rosemary Prinz a lot, but as @Paul Raven remarked, she was not the REAL Penny. Personally, I rejected her instantly, and as I recall, the majority of the audience was said to have condemned the replacement.

Thanks for clearing that up. Do you recall any explanation or reference to Penny,Edith and John not being present?

Obviously Ruth Warrick was contracted to AMC but I wonder if Rosemary might have returned in respect of Santos and an age appropriate actor could play John.

I wonder if she was asked?

Not to mention that the only romantic interest I could find this Paul having was if Hank Elliot came back.  He and that Sarah look like they should have been on Days...vapid, young pretty things talking about their "corporations" ! But yea, I would take him over dog face any day.

Barbara would've loved this Paul with Hank. Anything to keep him away from Emily.

Originally, I think that vault contained links to GL and ATWT but the last time I looked, the links to ATWT and possibly GL were gone. It may have been a lack of space issue.

This is my opinion but the only persons who have a genuine claim on these videos are the production company itself, the writers, the actors and some members of the production crew. They, I would think have more right to the content of these episodes than people who recorded episodes and had no hand in creating the content, as enjoyable as it is to see them upload episodes.

Okay, it's one thing to try to profit from your personal edits of episodes, (which I will never understand and seems sketchy at best) but selling intellectual property that you had no hand in creating for personal profit seems illegal, in my opinion. They're lucky that P&G simply hasn't cared enough to go after them.

 

Very true.

My pleasure. As you know, I can babble on ENDLESSLY about my beloved soaps of yore, LOL!

I don't think Edith or John were even referenced. Like when Papa Bauer passed away on TGL, no one mentioned Trudy. It would have made sense for the show to mention Penny, considering how hugely popular she had been, and how much the audience remembered her and wanted to see her again, but if Penny did get a mention, I did not hear it.

Thanks for the info I guess that's why some referred to Rosemary Prinz as The Susan Lucci of her Fay she was pretty irreplaceable
