Y&R: Old Articles


Recommended Posts

I had a look at the wonderful 1987 episodes we got in the vault. 

 

For the 1st four months, 4 actors were taken off contrat: William Wintersole (Feb/March 1987), Colby Chester (May 1987), Beth Maitland (June 4th 1987), Brenda Dickson (June 24th 1987). @will81 have you listed last airdates for Wintersole and Chester ?

3 actors were added in the contract cast: Rod Arrants (Jan 1987), Todd Curtis (he was not listed with contract at first, was he recurring ? April 1987 I think) and Jess Walton (June 25th 1987).

Seems like the show got rid of Colby Chester because they were gearing up for a big summer "quad" with Tim, Traci, Brad and Jill.  Tim kisses Traci in April and Jill kisses Brad on June 16, in one of Brenda D's last eps.

 

But by the end of June, Beth M has quit (leading the show, I assume, to let Scott Palmer go) and Brenda Dickson is fired. I'm guessing the writers then had to kill that whole story. I don't remember a romantic story with Jill and Brad once Jess W took over.

The German uploader is Bundy1965 from YouTube (they had once posted a lot of B&B German eps that were deleted). She reads this thread and is seeing all your comments. :) She's so fast, up to July now! I intend to add more on YouTube but can't keep up haha. She said she's using the list of preemptions from @YRfan23for the dates, so that should make them pretty accurate! Also she said do not go by the German credits, they just re-use the same credits in many episodes, for both Y&R and B&B.  Thanks again Bundy. :D

The best way is to right click the link and open in "incognito" or private mode. If it turns out your videos are not the same as the 70s videos in the vault, I hope you will upload them there, that would be so great! The link is bit.ly/3kMIjRN 

 

I have now checked the episodes I have, and although the dates do not correspond on all the files, my 1970s' eps of Y&R are the exact same ones as in the vault.

 

Thanks again for giving me the link, however.

No words can describe how grateful we are to Bundy1965! 😁😁

 

so it looks like we got a partial English episode of July 2, 1987 instead of the German one. I think that should have been Quinn Redekers/ Rex’s first episode but he’s not in the partial clip. He does appear on 7/6/87 so 7/2/87 sounds correct.

I do have an article stating his first airdate was to be July 6 and it is mentioned in Nancy Reichardt's synopsis for week of July 6. So I think July 6 was his first airdate. Wait okay I also have one stating July 2, lol so confusing

Not yet, but will, I am polishing up summer 86 and currently working on April 87. William Wintersole was still in the cast credits for Mar but his last appearance was Feb 5, 1987 (on contract) I think Colby's last airdate is when he and Jill are arguing about the previous night at Gina's when Jill is hung over. That was May 5, 1987

Thankyou Bundy1965. It is so great to have these episodes. Very much appreciated. Thanks for the tip about the credits. I guess the only thing that affects is the writer/director credits as I look through the episodes to make sure for accuracy. Some non-contract players only get listed once and not always in the episode they are in, so I usually still need to go through the ep to make sure.

It feels like that is why they moved Brad to Lauren. I think they knew Beth was leaving and maybe it was to be Jill/Brad/Lauren, but Brenda's departure squashed that. You can see Jill giving Lauren the side eye at the men's line launch, haha. Yeah Jess and Don had no real romantic story as far as I remember and the chemistry wasn't quite there. I think also Jess doesn't play Jill's sexual side as much, except where needed. Brenda was always slinking around like a Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Jess has a bit more of a harder energy or more masculine at times. 

 

Beth's last airdate was June 4, so she left late May and I assume she gave the show decent notice. (the show taped 2 weeks ahead when it went to an hour, except toward the end of the year when they would work an extra day each week to build up 2 extra weeks for the holidays as per Jess Walton who responded to a fan question in 1993. Though I guess with all the pre-emptions in 87 they didn't need to bother) Also Bell stated he wrote anywhere from 5 - 7 weeks ahead per an interview in 1985.

Also so far the credits have been accurate, though will still keep in mind they might repeat credits sometimes. Brenda has been removed by the Jun 30 episode cast list and Jess added on contract. Beth is also gone but Scott Palmer is still there. He did air for a few episodes after Beth left and I think his last appearance was when Lauren goes to see him as he is packing to move to California, that was June 15

Michael Crawford is another character difficult to keep track of his stories, timeline, and appearances. Of course he was Jill’s lawyer & lover there 1985-87 but he also had that elusive Mandy Kemper on the side. Then by ‘88-‘89 he was back again in Jill’s life to the point that Jill was hoping to get married to him and of course was involved in the Skip & Carol adoption story and then fades out for good sometime in early 1990. I wonder if Bell ever had long term big plans for the character.

I guess John Silva ended up replacing Michael Crawford as the town's "sole Lawyer" that bounced from story to story. It's funny they even had him date Jill for a bit in 95-96ish.

Wasn't Mandy Kemper Tonja Walker's character? (and an old YouTube channel)
Were there bigger plans for her? 

What was the point of her scenes?

May 17, 1989 was posted to archive when I was just looking for it! Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that the universe answered my request, haha. Don't know if it's a coincidence or if the uploader lurks here, but thanks! That poster has been adding lots of 1998 as well.
