Geez seeing that opening again gets me emotional - it's just perfect, the shots they used, the balance in tone, how they show all aspects of soap, the ending shot...

 

It really is perfect and I love that shot of Harley groovin'. Tangie sipping her champers is lovely enough, Reva, meh... no one shone in that final spot like Harley.

 

An article written about this opening makes mention of the fact that the original intent was to focus on the main players with many more generic shots (pearls, flowers, et cetera). I remember when it became so bloated with cast members that there was a. day and b. day, the cast split 50/50. Like with every other soap opening, with the new additions came dips in quality. There were clips that were too short and were awkwardly paused and rewound (like Rock Hudson in Dynasty's opening titles).

 

Another article mentioned that if you look closely you'll see that the opening mimics how a real lighthouse works. I didn't understand what they were getting at until I recently watched a documentary on Maryland lighthouses and saw the Fresnel lenses:

Timothy Waldrip, who played Dr. Danny Woleck on the show on two different occasions, lost his wife a few days ago.  He issued this statement:

 

"My wife Gerri Sutyak passed away this morning of natural causes, so it’s said. Please remember her fondly. She has been the largest part of my heart for decades."

 

Please keep this family in your prayers.

 

Mr. Waldrip also appeared on Loving.

I think Jessica Morris is underrated. I think she should have been Emmy nominated when she found out about her father's death. Wasn't there all kinds of gossip about Browne during his OLTL tenure? I always wondered why he was let go.
