I am now up to the episodes with Garison Originals and FC fashion shows. Oh i so miss the old times with good fashion shows, the music, the models, the behind the scene preparation....

WIth today's budget, fashion shows at such scale seem totally impossible... unfortunately!

Another question. It isn't that important, but does anyone know the episode that starts Season 5? I heard it was 940, but not sure if that's accurate. I used to be able to access the videoland episode list without an account, but I can't anymore for some reason.

I think 940 = 1990-12-19

1991-03-25 is 999 or 1000

1991-03-24 was a sunday

1991-03-23 was a saturday

It's contentious isn't it? When does a season start for a show that plays all year long? It's anniversary? If so, then I figure 1000 ends season 4 on 22/3/1991, and 1001 starts season 5 on 25/3/1991. Sorry for the way we Aussies write dates but you know what I mean LOL.

We Germans write it the same way!

I know that at some point, they started the season every year in September like all other CBS shows. In the early years, they seem to have done it around the anniversary (250 episodes) but there were a lot of preemptions in 1987 that may have messed that up?

 

Someone told me videoland starts Season 5 at episode 940 in December... but there seems to be no reason behind that at all... it's neither an anniversary, nor a milestone episode... ?

Many differences between Aussie (yes Australian!)/British and US including dates. We put u's in words like colour, odour, flavour, saviour...  General day to day slang in American can mean a naughty one in Australian (the theme song to The Nanny can bring a laughing tear to the eye).

I suspect these days it has to do with renewals, so when they announce 2 season renewals for example it's probably from a specific date which won't be the B&B anniversary date but more than likely September-ish as you say to tie in with prime time seasons etc. Strange the VL splitting on seasons. I tend to ignore it because it would do my head in.

Interesting, I thought that Americans put the u's in words.

Different dialects are spoken in Germany. 

We Swabians have a way of saying primeval times that nobody else understands.

 

I like Bavarian and Viennese very much.

 

But Swabian is also spoken differently depending on the area and when a North German speaks in full dialect, I understand almost nothing.

 

I would also be interested in how Australians say body weight and temperature. We Germans give our weight in kg and our height in meters. The temperature in degrees Celsius.

 

Oh, and on the road we're going right.

I have the same dates. Early 1991 is a black box due to Dessert Storm pre-emptions on CBS. 

 

Videoland has been incorrect with its defintion fo season ever sinc eseason 2 or 3... The official numbering was indeed the show's anniversary. Same with Y&R. Then in about 2011 CBS switched the renewals for its soaps to Fall in-line with primetime shows.

I can't say how grateful I am to all the uploaders! THANK YOU ALL 

 

Marquise, I was looking for that map! It's so funny. The Logan house is much to close to the Forresters, and Forrester Creations shouldn't be anywhere near Spectra!

    • By Jackie Zeman's Insta I think they filmed the episode today
    • I was reading the weekly synopses of the introduction to the character of Stuart Chandler and it got me thinking.  I don't want to use the term "offensive" because I did not feel that way.  However, in retrospect, it was not just politically incorrect, but also poorly written and acted.    First, it seems like a choice that Stuart's "mental problems" were always obtuse.  Was he psychotic?  Well, there were no hallucinations or delusions.  Did he have Autism?  Well, he maintained romantic relationships with two women, which would suggest that he did not have delays in socialization, and he did not display any restrictive interests or repetitive movements.  Was he intellectually deficient?  Well he seemed capable of taking care of his adaptive skills such as cooking and cleaning himself.  The lack of diagnosis seemed to be in the service of not having to advocate for any specific disease, but it left many open questions.   Second, his portrayal as being cute and immature was disrespectful of people with brain injuries.  Most men with brain injuries do not indicate their level of impairment by wearing crewneck sweaters.  And men with structural damage to their cortex don't speak like little boys or want to play with toys.  Writing and acting the character of Stuart as lovable because he seemed younger than his age was problematic.  Could he consent to a sexual relationship with Marion given his level of functioning?  Who knew, because it was so ill defined.   As I recall AMC got accolades for the portrayal of Stuart and fans enjoyed his romances with Cindy and Marion.  But, given my own experiences knowing people with head injuries, Autism, and chronic mental illness, it was just grossly out of touch.  AMC tried again with the characters of Lily Montgomery and Jonathan Lavery but the acting in both cases was atrocious.  Jonathan's miraculous recovery from a brain injury was worse than when soaps have people spontaneously walk after paralysis, or see after temporary blindness, because Jonathan inexplicably had to act as if he was still delayed in order to maintain his relationship, and then was found out when Jackson heard him speak "normally."  On what planet would that be considered sensitive or tasteful story telling?   I guess we should applaud the efforts to show intellectual diversity.  However, when the only stories for people with disabilities are either about being abused or trying to find love, writers have missed the opportunity to mine the real dramas in the lives of people with neurological differences and their families.
