The Brooks house and Forrester mansion are two completely different sets.

I'm not saying it is for sure. I was just told that several years ago on another message board. It does have the same kind of layout. The Brooks house was one of the first sets I remember as a small child. The double doors that came into the foyer always stuck in my mind. There was a porthole window near the piano and a stained glass window at the top of staircase.

I have a fondness for more traditional style homes and decor. The Williams home is another set I miss seeing. Nikki and Victor's new house is crappy. Someone said the front door reminds them of an 80's dressing room in a department store......LOL

Next he praises Rachel Kimsey as Mac, saying how she had become the character and worked really well with J.T.

I agree, except she was much more suited to Kevin than J.T.

Until it burned, the window behind Leslie's piano was to the left of the front door at the Ranch. With the rebuilding, most likely, the last piece of set from episode 1 is now gone forever.

Man... looking at Beth and Eileen in the scene at 5:45, along with the perfect background music. Just a perfect emotional ballet. You can really FEEL what the characters are feeling. I don't think there is a single younger actor on the show today that can hold a candle to Beth when she was young.

Eileen's mannerisms and body language in that scene is so spot on.

So do I. It's always weird seeing Julianna McCarthy with her.

I don't know if you saw it but I put a clip reel of some big 85-86 (or 85-87, I'm not sure) moments in the videobash section.

Nice, I haven't seen it, I will check it out.

It was Tom's decision to leave because the show was offering her bad terms during contract negotiations so she jumped ship.

One more thing I should mention is I did always like was Nick and Sharon. My biggest problem is Nick and Sharon were married for ten years (1996-2006, they celebrated their tenth I recall) but spent at least eight of them engaged in some sort infidelity story of sorts. Nick and Sharon were at their best during the Cassie story and later on in 2003 when it was Nick&Sharon vs. Victor&Nikki.

Yup. Heather Tom walked on her own. Based on quasi- interviews with Tom and David Shaughnessy back then it was pretty clear that they wanted to backburn Victoria in favor of Nick Newman. If you go back and read her storylines in her final year, it was clear she was in as sinking ship. TPTB wanted to make Nick and Sharon the new Nikki and Victor. Victoria went from being groomed as Victor 2.0 into being pushed aside for her brother who all of a sudden was corporate hungry (which he never was).

Shaughnessy also made it no secret that he wanted Victoria to be "softer" and closer to Nikki which changed the entire dynamic of the Newman clan. They were making drastic changing to the character of Victoria Nicole Newman and Heather Tom disagreed with majority of them. So in the end she walking. I know when it was announced they were recasting that they only planned on the character to be gone for a few months. It turned into almost 2 years. And I know during that time Tom expressed interest in returning, but I think bad blood at the time prevented it. It ended up being the best for Tom in the long run. I can't even picture her in this version of Victoria anymore to be honest.

I know some don't care for Amelia Heinle in the role, but whether she was hired or not -- Victoria was still going to be written the same way. Her title of Victor's heir was stripped years ago. First to Nick and now to Adam. When was the last time we actually saw Victoria in a true business storyline? This for a character they still constantly refer to as being cutthroat, yet they refuse to write it. Instead we get silly baby storylines because women in power still scares these writers -- eventhough the EP are women. Imagine that. Maybe JFP & JG will turn it around. I just doubt it.
