Knowing that the live interview was in progress, I briefly clicked on it just to see if the video and audio were okay.

What did I hear in the very first second? Alan chirping, "That's craaaaaaaaaazy."

JFC.

No jury would convict me, LOL.

I don't even know how much  Eileen is interested in more detailed interviews - this feels more like her just wanting to relive some fun old times, which is alright with me. There had been years of fan worry about her - a decade. I hope this might lead to more for Eileen and if it takes a place she felt comfortable with I can go along with it.

 

Yea...I think Eileen can just have a camera pointed at her and she is off to the races with her stories.  Nice to see her again and of course Don too...I just wish they could bring LB in for a quick guest appearance as they were bickering away for 30 years.

Before Don left, he asked for Eileen's number, so I guess she really has been out of the loop. I do hope this can lead to more.

And yeah I'd be thrilled to see Larry. 

I do agree with the  criticisms of Alan,  and I don't think we need to pretend  he is better than he is - it's just I always end up having mixed feelings because he is pretty much the  only reason we're even seeing these people.

When I watched the interview, Eileen reminded me in certain moments of some of my aunts and my grandmother (some of whom watched ATWT) who have been gone a long time. It makes me feel emotional.

I'm glad she seemed to be enjoying the moments and while the interviewing style was very clunky, it didn't feel hurried or forced. 

Most of all I'm just glad that we got to have the goodbye with Lisa that Chris Goutman was too spiteful to let us have.

Same here.

Same with me.  I'm glad Alan can arrange the interviews, but I'm sorry he's not a better conversationalist.  None of us is expecting an Oprah Winfrey or a Barbara Walters, but if he could just carry on a normal conversation, pick-up a lead and go with it, instead of bouncing back to his prepared remarks or going on some irrelevant tangent, it'd be nice.

Hey, just eliminating "wow" and "that's crazy" would be an improvement.

It's the strangest thing.  When someone tells you, "That was a really difficult period for me", 99.9% of the world's population would respond, "What made it so difficult?" or "How did you overcome the difficulties?" or something along those lines.  But instead Alan just sits there, smiles like a simpleton, mumbles, "Ok, wow, that's crazy; let me tell you about my nephew!"  It's like he's a space alien who's never heard two human beings have a conversation before.

    • Well, it was Paul Michael Valley's choice but he made it because he was furious with JFP for firing Chris Tucci on JFP's first day at AW. Tucci & PMV were an item then. I wholeheartedly agree about Paulina. Jake all the way! I'd go over that cliff with them again tomorrow! Vicky & Shane, okay. Vicky & Grant very okay. And, I've mentioned him but what about Evan? I still think Vicky & Amanda could have squared off over Evan. And, Jamie is never a bad idea. The thing about Tommy is that he was a good friend, a good scene partner & full of chemistry with all those dames! But, Tommy was more successful with the ladies than Jake was!

    • I really enjoyed Ms. Wu on today's show. She was fabulous with the way that she handled Morgan's Fairchild's character when she was threatening to sue Deception. Ms. Wu is such a strong no-nonsense lady who will handle things quickly before they get out of control. And I like that lol. Sasha's meltdown was definitely a very rough moment for her, but I liked the way Ms. Wu came in to clean things up once Lucy/Morgan's child started arguing with each other. I also liked Lucy/Morgan's character Haven squaring off with each other too. The scenes with those ladies were the best scenes of today for me.  I also liked the scenes where Nina got emotional about seeing Sasha's meltdown on live tv. (And Sonny comforting her afterwards). 
    • I completely agree that it made no sense for Vicky to get back together with Jake after he raped Marley. I try to justify it by telling myself neither Jake nor Vicky were saints by any means when they came to Bay City. They moved past their misdeeds and accepted each other for who they were. I did like Tom and Jensen together.  I never thought Paulina should have been paired with Joe. I hated that pairing. Paulina was so much more fun when she was with Jake.  Ryan should never have left (but it was PMV's choice). That said, Vicky could have been paired with someone new (Shane?), gone back to Grant against everyone's wishes as Vicky never concerned herself with the opinion of others, or even recast Jamie specifically for a pairing with Jensen. Jamie was a character that should have been around during the end of the show's run. 
    • Have a number of people played gay Sonny? I see him with Will & think he has looked different ways at different times.
    • KKL was better at emotion always... and crying a LOT. But she lacked the intelligence and class that Hunter gave Taylor.. She on the other hand... lacked emotion at some points.. and for the first couple of months she couldnt cry like she started later... I will say they are equally good, but no GREAT GREAT like Susan... But in the end I will kinda prefer KKL... because she made me feel more emotion. Taylor a lot of the times is just beautiful.
