Thanks. I must have just missed him.

I liked Hilary so much in this too - her last few years on the show where she didn't have to be so dewy-eyed brought out some backbone in Carmen Thomas' work. It's a shame they never had her return for the Damon story.

Tad and Dixie would always be the end game. Even if Tad and Gloria had worked as a couple, she would've been nothing more than a plot device/stumbling block to an inevitable Tad/Dixie reunion. Before his pairing with Dixie, I thought they were going to head in the Tad/Barbara direction. Knight and Susan Pratt had terrific chemistry and all that great banter. It was all very adult and more sophisticated than the Tad/Dixie pairing would ever be.

I also thought they were going with Tad & Barbara until he got involved with Dixie. It could've been interesting if Barbara had been involved with both men during the Tad/Dixie/Brooke/Adam storyline.

I watched the first Dec 1986 episode posted and I was surprised at how much of it I enjoyed - pretty much all of it, other than Tad, who seemed incredibly sanctimonious and hypocritical even at that time. At least there was a good scene with Tad and Marian. It's great to see that she did last as long as she did after Liza was written out.

The production values look so lush compared to what we have now, and I loved the background music in the scenes with Natalie at the stranger's apartment. (I will say I don't think she would have fallen for that ruse, or drank the champagne).

Was that Christian Slater in the mountain lodge scenes?

I really like Taylor Miller's work as Nina in this period - it is so sharp and so fresh, a mix of modern and old soap melodrama, and it holds up very well.

Why did Donna have a huge tear up the back of her blouse? Was that fashion?

On the other hand, I kind of liked Natalie's silk pants suit.

I guess I can see why AMC recast Skye (they did fire Byron, didn't they?), but she's very entertaining. I love that plucky Australian accent, bopping around in that huge blue beret that is nearly bigger than her head. I can't imagine how fans reacted at the time when the very subdued Robin Christopher took her place.

This Josh character that Stuart and Adam said left - was he ever onscreen?

Yes, that was Christian Slater. IIRC, Cliff eventually saved his life.

ITA that Natalie was too quick to believe the job offer over the phone and drink the champagne, but I also can see why she'd want to think there was some way out of the Adam/Palmer situation.

Donna's dress was the fashion once upon a time. I've never been a fashionista so I can't explain what women or men thought was attractive about a fully covered chest and hole in the back.

As much as I grew to like Robin Christopher, I really liked the original Skye and I never knew why they recast the part.

Thanks. I must have just missed him.

It truly was a shame that Hillary never came back!

Thanks for posting this and the other articles!
