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.   

I tried to get past it and focus solely on Eileen but man, it's a challenge when the host is so inept at maintaining conversation threads. He would just stop the conversation cold, he's so stilted. I was grateful that Don could come on, that helped give the conversation more texture, it felt natural.

What a dork I am that seeing Bob and Lisa again makes me feel like I am three years old having to "take my nap" so my Mom could see what "That damn Lisa is up to today."  Eileen looks and sounds great as of course Don does too (plus I love that study or office he is always in..) Don always just seems like somebodies Dad and Eileen a crazy and beloved Aunt...(of which I was luck enough to have a Lisa like aunt.)  I loved Eileen's simple ideal for Lisa's last scene...a guy handing her a glass of champagne and they look at each other...I would have added her saying..."Wait until they find out about us!"  A real shame that Lisa was not kept in the mix until the very end..they could have used her in a million ways.

Why TPTB sidelined Fulton/Lisa, and kept her in the degrading position of a glorified day-player for so many years is a mystery none of us will ever have the answer to, alas.

I've always been perplexed why they didn't just fire her completely, instead of just giving her a scrap or two here and there.

Was anything interesting actually said? 

Not much. Locher just retreaded the same old tired stories about her almost pulling out the pregnancy pillow on live TV, getting hit by the irate fan, having her recite her married names, etc. It honestly was just like all the other interviews you've seen with her in the past. Just with an older Eileen and a befuddled interviewer. Not much tea was spilled.

The interview was disappointing and expected but it's worth watching just to see Lisa and Bob together on screen again.

I posted it during the livestream that there definitely was nothing that hadn't already been covered in previous interviews being explored.  I was just so glad to see Eileen. Given, a few posters who popped up in this thread last year trying to spread the notion that Eileen was cognitively unable to do one of these livestreams (persons who don't seem to be around anymore, thankfully), I was just glad to see her. I was also tickled to hear her respond "Of course, I remember!" to a number of Locher's questions. It speaks of a lady who has been asked this question more than once and is perhaps weary of being asked whether she remembers something.

Obsolete Video plans to post an ATWT episode from 1980 tomorrow.

 

I just checked this out. First 15min is from Jul 30, 1980. There is also a minute or two from Guiding Light and the second ep which is in full (I think) is from the next day Jul 31, 1980
