Y&R: Old Articles


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

So I have started putting up the Jon-Michael Reed synopsis from Mar 21 1983 onwards. Just to make it easier I have tagged them as jmrrecaps1983. This tag will show only Jon-Michael Reed's recaps starting Mar 21, 1983. For those that only want to see them. Then if you want, just go to the URL and type   /chrono   and you can have them in order

I am soooo loving these recaps! Thank you so much for all your hard work finding and posting them! It’s so very appreciated! I have my notifications set on there so every time there’s new stuff, it lets me know when it’s posted! It’s very nice to wake up to! Can’t wait for the rest!

From Nikki:

 

I have had some people ask about YR 2004 episodes to see Joan Van Ark so I am adding what I have to the vault and I actually know the dates of a lot of them.

I have uploaded the 2000-2004 Playlists from the Y R YouTube Channel to the Vault!

 

Some of the 2003 episodes are missing as there were corruption issues while I downloaded it, and have since been blocked on YouTube. I'm putting my focus on those playlists as they get updated. Hopefully we will get more of 2001 and 2002. 2003 looks very promising so far.

Omg @will81 I am LIVING for your blog and eating it up! Thank you so much! I’ve read through 1982 so far…

 

Seems like a rough transition year for the soap opera world… Texas and the Doctors cancelled… Search for Tomorrow on life support (surprised it lasted til ’86)… Guiding Light firing Doug Marland (why…?) and then firing replacement Pat Falken Smith two months later!!

 

The columnists were not too pleased with YR, said it was in an “awkward phase” due to storytelling shifts. They were displeased with the firing of the Lawrence family - said that as soon as the viewer starts to have affection for a character, they might disappear. They felt that Robert and Leslie were a “magic couple”.  

They also felt that the Stevens family was written off before they’d had a proper chance, and they lament the lack of a blue-collar working-class family in Genoa City.

 

Other YR items of note:

  • They described Mamie/Marguerite Johnson as “recently hired” so that’s another fact confirming she did indeed debut in ’82, not ’80 as some sources say
  • Brian Kerwin (Greg #2) was interviewed. It was said he was on the show for only “40 days”. He mostly worked with Juliana McCarthy and loved her. He kept in touch after with David Hasselfhoff. He started to be friendly with Beau K but then Beau ghosted him.
  • Deborah Adair volunteered at the rape crisis center at Cedars Sinai hospital in LA… love that…
  • Beth Maitland was a casting director before being cast as Traci. Upon her debut, she wore padding to appear heavier as Traci

Does anyone know if there's a source that picks up the Soap Opera Digest recaps where the classicsodyr tumblr leaves off? (May 28, 1991) I know there's some on a blog called Soap Opera Saga but they don't have all of them consecutively like the tumblr did.

I was doing it here, as I have most of the 90's SOD's (many got ruined by rats) I started uploading the entire magazine from 1991, but life has gotten in the way. It takes a lot to scan those magazines. I will be getting back to it though eventually. Not sure there is anywhere else that has them

That's great that you have them. I'm not even up to 1991 yet in my watching, so waiting is not a problem for me, I just thought it might be up somewhere already that I'd missed.

Thanks for that. Very interesting to see the top 10 are mostly Abbott's. I would even include Brad as an Abbott sort of. Also I notice in the monthly charts the top 13 were always appearing the most and it seems to show here too, since they are the ones with 100 plus appearances. I guess Jeanne would have been in that 100+ section too if not for her absences. 

 

Also from what we know of the first few episodes from Jan 86 that are missing. It seems to have been Lauren, Paul, Andy, Faren, Kay, Jack, Jill, Michael, Lindsey, Esther, John, Grant, Shawn, Traci, Brad and Danny for most of that week. I think Ash, Victor, Nikki only appeared once or twice during that time.

Hey all

 

Updated the blog with July soap news and synopsis. Some interesting talk about ratings from both JMR and Lynda Hirsch. ABC faultering and CBS gaining. JMR talks about the debut of Loving. An interview with Beth Maitland, and he (JMR) can't understand why residents of Genoa City take a full week to make a Trans-Atlantic flight.

From Nikki:

 

I added the following Y&R episodes to the vault. Hopefully they aren't duplicates of what's already in there but it's hard to tell because I'm an idiot and didn't label anything.

 

Here is what was added:

1984 episode (in folder labeled "unsure of dates")

1988 episode (in folder labeled "unsure of dates")

4 1994 episodes (in folder labeled "unsure of dates")

2 1992 episodes (in folder labeled "unsure of dates")
