Who’s surprised to see Rebecca and Cameron not I but I am excited to watch the show.


I am more... nonplussed by the people they are "reuniting". I mean JR on one hand, Maria on the other and Greenlee/Ryan on the third never had much to do with each other on the show. How much of a "reunion" is it if it is people who rarely had airtime together? If you want to use  Greenlee/Ryan bring me Alicia Minshew for instance. Heck, bring at least Melissa Claire Egan to be the two-degree of separation between Greenlee/Ryan and JR.

@FrenchBug82 I definitely feel you on that. Maybe they’re reuniting anyone who was on the show. All of the characters have been on the show at the same time and cross paths before but it would make more sense to reunite people who shared storylines. 
 

I’m not mad at “All my children”getting this prime time level press. I did think Who did Jr shoot? Was a clever ending and probably helps keeps the show fresh in our minds. Just not sure why they keep acting like the reboot didn’t happen. 
 

if I’m doing a reunion I’m reuniting fake silver Kane and Erica Kane, the entire 80s teen set including Alfred and Amanda, etc.

I don't think it's a reunion for them to sit and talk about their specific storylines as much as it's all of these people with a shared experience (all of whom were on the show with at least half of the others) coming together to discuss the legacy of a show that made them all famous and that they all remain very connected to.

Yeah that's definitely what it is but it is going to lack the emotional resonance of the other reunions where it is people who are not just there to talk about a show but have actually worked closely, loved, bonded with each other for many years.

Not criticizing the fact it exists; I'll eat up any soap content. But it feels like a mish-mash random list rather than one that makes sense if you watched the show.

Started digging into the 1990 episodes posted recently. WEHT Eric Kane? It's odd seeing him as a talk-to in his daughter's life.

 

That story was, I believe, a huge flop with fans. The character was sent packing. I can't remember if he was later killed off.

I think the E! reunion came together like this:

"Who from the All My Children cast lives in LA?" and "Jacob is in town? Ok, let's book him too."

 

Yes, I agree it's a random group of people, but I'm sure they made it work.

Thinking about it I suspect this also might have to do with the Kelly Ripa "reboot" and who signed on to that project. Just a hunch.

I don’t remember seeing his exit, but I believe he betrayed Erica (yet again) by doing some business dealing with Natalie and he slinked out of town.

 

Albert Stratton was charming and handsome and bore some resemblance to Mark LaMura, but even as a child I didn’t feel that he was right for the role. Maybe someone more like James Farentino. Robin Strasser has talked about how when they finally introduced Gerald Davis on AW, the visual of Walther Matthews in the role struck a chord as we finally saw where Rachel got her dark coloring and features. I think I expected something similar for Erica and Mark’s dad.

 

I wonder if Eric and Erica ever had scenes where they mentioned Goldie and Silver.

And yes, they killed Eric off off-screen. I believe he died in Vegas and that was somehow related to Erica relapsing and masquerading as a showgirl. It was revealed that Erica was not merely raped by Richard Fields, but Eric had a hand in it, he “sold” his daughter to Richard to get Richard to appear in one of Eric’s movies. This stuff is getting foggy in my brain, someone feel free to correct me.
