I truly hated that Francesca James was brought back as a new character and not as Kelly (or even Kitty).

100% and that No one was like , you look like Kelly Tyler

You didn't have to watch to know 1) Francesca James was back and 2) she wasn't back as Kelly or Kitty.

Just saw Lonnie Quinn, a.k.a. the first nicer Will Cooney/Cortlandt on the CBS Evening News, doing the weather. So weird. I know he switched careers ages ago, but it's still kind of a trip. Still very recognizable, albeit older. Naturally.

Currently making my way through fall 1987, and I am just about sick of The Julie Show. Is Lauren Holly typically considered good as Julie? Because I think she’s awful, and every single episode revolves around everyone protecting the delicate flower that is Julie. She’s sickening.

 

The only good coming out of it is the Palmer/Natalie/Ross/Ellen/Mark drama, which has been messy as hell! Kathleen Noone was running AMC at this time.

Lauren Holly & Robert Duncan McNeil looked like twin brother and sister. They had no chemistry. Cecily was the only thing that made the triangle interesting. Natalie's rape by Ross was well done.

David Canary's daughter wrote this. Sheds some new light on his illness and passing.

How heartbreaking. I had not read into any details surrounding DC's illness at the time of his death, so all of this is new to me. As a high school teacher, I witness the types of injuries she mentions with my students every year, and of course, we think nothing of it. They'll recover, and life will go on, but that's not how it works.

Once upon a time, a good well-written soap could have excelled at telling this story with a long-running character who'd been an athlete in his teen years and now is suffering with brain difficulties in middle age.

Seven years! It is amazing he was able to work on AMC for as long as he was, up to and including 2011 and the reboot. We all knew something was wrong in his very final appearance in 2013 - I still remember the posts about it - but as far as I can recall, that's literally the only time any of us knew or suspected.

 

Tragic, but what a man.

Here is a collection of the black/yellow bumpers from the early 2000s. The Erica bumpers with the big grandiose music is included three times, and I live. Also loving Eileen Herlie's yelling at 40 seconds.

Someone at the Washington Post is trying to get Susan Lucci a guesting gig on SNL as Marianne Williamson.

I don't see that happening (although her episode of SNL is absolutely fantastic), but it's nice her name is still out there.
