AMC: Thursday, September 1, 2011

Totally agreed. And that's really what AMC desperately needs right now--an older character who fits that role. Running a boarding house--which also is a terrific way to introduce new (younger) characters, seems like such a no brainer. As these great character actresses (and actors) have passed away, AMC was never filling the void with new characters like that, or moving up older characters to that role (and let's face it, even if she stayed, Susan lucci could never really play that)--Opal's the only one on the canvas who really could, and it's just one of those things that seems so obvious you wonder why it hasn't been done (well aside from ABC and their demo obsession).

(While n hindsight it's criminal that AMC never really seemed to realize they were losing actors who could serve that purpose, it's been a problem with all soaps. I can't think of anyone at OLTL right now really who could play a similar role--maybe Roxie if she was toned down ever so slightly, but RC seems to have no interest in that).

The thing I loved about the boarding house concept is the way it made it easy for completely unrelated characters to interact organically. Two characters who really weren't a part of each other's stories would bump into each other in the living room because one was looking for Myrtle and the other was there visiting another resident. Now they run into each other in the hospital hallway (as Frankie strolls by in the background.)

I'm just watching yesterday's ep and I have to laugh at Erica telling Agnes "The next time you talk to my mother, tell her not to worry."

I wanted Agnes to say, "Damn girl, you realize I nearly had to die to talk to her this time right? I didn't just Skype her!"

Oh Angie girl. Please just pack your [[email protected]#$%^&*] and start over somewhere with Maya and Lucy. Maya needs a mother figure. You can be Lucy's Big Mama and PV has too many bad memories.

      I just hate this storyline so much. And I really, really hate when awful people keep getting rewarded for their awful behavior. Both in real life and in fiction. It’s not right. Say what you will about Sonny and Carly, but they’ve at least somewhat paid for their awful behavior. Not as much as they should but it was still more than this. How can anyone treat someone that they claim to care about so terribly? And then just not care at all about that person or what they did to them? Over at Days, I hated it when Ciara did it to Theo and I hated it when Craig did it to Nancy. But Joss is worse than the two of them put together. It’s like she not even human. I find her to be even worse than Carly. I know Carly has problems being a decent person too, but she would never treat the people that she says she cares about the way that Joss treated Cam and now to a lesser extent, Spencer and Michael. And honestly, I want Joss to suffer worse than any person on GH ever has.  I have absolutely no idea what the writers, or Frank are thinking with the way this storyline is being written. And do they seriously think that this consolation prize crap of Cam going to play soccer for Stanford (and Trina constantly reminding us of it) makes everything better? It doesn’t. 
    • I hesitate to post Thompson, who is just a gleeful gossip hound. But this thread is instructive, even if much of it is stuff we all could've told the GOP and the NY Times six months ago.  
    • Sure. They've been sent to live on a farm with other not gone actors where they can run and play.
    • From what I can find, Tim was datie Evie but got a job offer out of town that was too good to pass up and left in Nov 76. No mention of Pam and no reason I could see that a marriage would be mentioned later. I just checked Soap Central and there is an entry stating Evie left town and Pam and Tim were married. Not so.This is not the first false entry I have come across at that site. Someone takes delight at posting false info.
    • She's under Ryan (I added this).  Pam married Tim at some point-- from what I read. If not, let me know.
