Y&R: Old Articles


Recommended Posts

Yes it seemed like Greg/Linda was in the offing but Bill lost interest.

I recall Linda was on repeat about how unfullfilled she was as just a wife and mother and Larry wasn't very supportive. I guess Bill was trying to reflect what was happening in the country at that time as young women became aware of what they may have been missing by devoting themselves to a domestic role.

 

Perhaps there was feedback that women at home watching didn't want to see someone onscreen

a) venting frustrations they may have been facing, which would increase their negative feelings

b) presenting an alternative point of view that threatened their status as wife and mother

 

Maybe the feeling was that the soaps should either feed fantasies eg women as glamorous novelists and concert pianists jetting off around the globe or reinforce status as happy homemakers .

On TVGuide.com, it says that for Friday November 27, 2020

(day after Thanksgiving in USA),

there is a episode *NOT* marked "new". Original airdate not listed.

It's called "Be Our Guest". (I had no idea what that meant.)

 

Then I checked the Canadian guide here:

https://www.ontvtonight.com/ca/guide/listings/tvshow?cid=892144823&pid=9251218863&tm=2020-11-27+19%3A00%3A00&provider=T3153330286
This says that on Friday Nov 27, 2020,

CBS will air Y&R "Be Our Guest", original airdate "1991".

 

After googling, I discovered that "Be Our Guest" is how CBS promoted the 1991 Masquerade Ball episode when it aired April 17, 2020.

 

That makes sense, because on Monday November 30th, Y&R kicks off a week of a big party centered around the 12,000th episode which airs Dec. 1st.

And Lauralee Bell posted last week an instagram of herself with Tricia Cast and Patty Weaver -- all of whom attended the 1991 ball.

 

It's too bad that the April 2020 airing of the ball edited out Patty Weaver singing George Benson's "Masquerade".

 

 

It said only "1991" so we wondered if it was definitely the Oct 2, 1991 episode, or if it could be something else.


The update:
Confirmation from zap2it.com: the Nov. 27, 2020 repeat is from Oct 2, 1991.
"David wears the same disguise as Danny to the Masquerade Ball; Paul and Lauren run into Scott and Sheila".

Presumably they'll just use the edited version that aired April 17, 2020.

I mean I like that they are showing the ball because it’s a true classic but they really could have showed the 10/3/91 episode since we got 10/2/91 in April.

 

hopefully they pull out something good for Christmas repeats, if they have them this year.

Agree, that's weak.

Even if there are Christmas classics this year, watch them be repeats of some of the 2010s episodes from the spring/summer classics.

Snapper and Casey always had such good chemistry, despite having to deliver absurd lines to each about "picking up vibes", having something "heavy going down", and wondering where someone's "head is at"  lol.

Still no answers what Larry & Linda’s story was though lol? Only mention I can find in my notes was “she had feelings for perpetual loser in love Greg Foster”. 🙈
 

Edit: Nevermind just saw @FrenchFan’s post, thanks!

 

I suppose the Larkins faced the same fate the Laurence family did just a few years later.

It sounds like 1978 was another transition year of sorts for the show. 

The big arrivals that year were the Reed sisters, Paul, and Lucas. In that 1978 episode, was Nikki's boyfriend that Casey was talking about Paul? I don't believe Casey and Nikki's mother was ever shown, but their father arrived the following year.


Lucas was the younger of Vanessa's sons, but IRL Tom Ligon is four years older than John McCook. Crazy to think in that 1978 episode JM was younger than his current B&B co-stars Darin Brooks and Scott Clifton.

I think Lucas came on Summer 1977.

Most Y&R fansites have Lucas arriving in 1978, that's what I was going by.

From what I can find in the recaps: Lucas joined in Oct 77, Casey in March 78, Nikki in May 78 and Paul in June-July 78

Paul’s first episode was May 23, 1978 as DD posted the script page once.
