Thanks as always @YRfan23!!! 

I had watched the 2/14/94 episode first up and to my delight it’s the episode where Ashley received the painting from Mari Jo. 
 

I also recall that Colleen birthday party clear as day 27 years later; I always felt the show did criminally underuse Greg Wrangler as Steve at the time. I was eventually disappointed by Brad & Lauren’s breakup but here I still see them as a very viable couple, powerful interlopers if you will. And it reminds me of what a waste B&B  in time eventually did to Lauren, we still see Scotty here yet never did on B&B.


Still utilizing Douglas was a fun and good thing, but who was Marvin Oakley? I thought Cole’s father was eventually proven to be the notorious Rick Daros.

Your welcome my friend!  

I don't know if you got to watch 2/9/94 yet, but I think that's the first time we hear Mari Jo's voice when she calls Blade. It's clearly Diana Barton, but she's credited as "Woman on Phone" in the contract list, so that was pretty funny!

  I thought there was another actress by the name of Pamela Bach,  that played Mari Jo before Diana B. though unless the other lady was a temp?

I'm not the biggest Brad fan during this time, but it's definitely sad how Colleen rejects him. I feel like Bill Bell just used this story as filler, and the most we got out of it was a long awaited catfight between Lauren and Traci. Lauren was heavenly backburned for the remainder of 1994 all the way into 1995 before she left for B&B where like you said she was wasted over there. I think Brad suffered a bit too with not having much to do until the following summer when he started seeing Nikki until their aborted wedding before he suddenly left town after Victor was shot. 

Rick Darros being Cole's father would have made more sense too. Honestly it still baffles me that they sort of retconned the Eve stuff between what we saw onscreen between 1980-1984, till her 1993 return. One thing being that they ignored how Cole/Charles met Victor years ago when he was a boy, because Victor begrudlingly looked after him when Eve needed him too. Then of course I don't think Nikki ever put two and two together that Cole's mom was the same nutcase who she fought with when Victor faked his death, and who tried to murder her at her wedding.

I don't think Rick Daros and Eve met until 1984 though, when Cole was already a child? 

 

Anyway, here's another batch of videos from the Y&R Anonymous Angel to kick off the week!

YRFan23 and I contend that 1991 might be the best year of YR ever!

 

Do you agree? If not, what is your "best year of YR"?

Damn! 91 was strong but Im gonna have to say 1998! Sandra Nelson as Phyliss, Cassie's custody battle, Crazy Sarah/Veronica, plus Victor and Diane's divorce.

Yep, that's the big Jump The Shark moment for me as well. Nothing that happens after that is canon in my eyes.

They just kept making it worse with the added complication of Cane, and making Jill Lauren's sister, then saying Tucker McCall was Kay's son and making Devon his son. One big cannon mess!!

 

Speaking of all that I recently got into 2009 (a year no one cares about) on the YR channel. There was a lot  going on between Nick/Sharon/Phyliss/Jack, Nikki and Paul almost getting married, Phillip's return Adam gas lighting Ashley, and the build up to Colleen's death. There was alot of crap, and it wasn't prime quality y&r but it was waaay easier to sit through than today show.

I think until 2011 the Maria Arena Bell years were VERY watchable (especially compared to everything that followed...). I could not sit through the last year of her tenure, though. 

 

and +1 to 1998 as THE must-see-year for Y&R.

@ironlion @sheilaforever 1998 was the last excellent year on the whole

To me, 1998 was the last gold standard year for the show, but as I've said before I'd  go with 2001 as the last solid quality year.

To briefly rehash the verdict on MAB, that was the era of Y&R I grew up on. She wasn't great, neither was Lynn Marie Latham, but they were better than what followed post 2013. what killed her tenure were endless canonical rewrites, and too many doppelganger and surgically altered faced story lines!

 

At the very least things happened on a daily basis, plus sets and classic musical cues were retained. However, I don't know how Y&R remained number one at the time. I found GH and OLTL (both on the quality sliding scale as well) to have a lot more action happening at the time.

It's a sad day when GH nowadays inspires me more than Y&R does. Anywhoo, I haven't done one of these in a while so enjoy!

 

 

 

Fantastic!   I had watched this scene earlier and had hope you would make one of your Y&R edits!

  The music is so fitting, yet if this was 1990-1993 era music I can easily figure out what they would use! 

Man that William Lipton is a talented kid! I understand he's been dropped to recurring...damn shame. I'd consider him for a Teen Johnny Abbott, if the writing was better.
