I thought the idea had potential but the moment we had Billy & Phyllis on as “investigative journalists” and Amber doing a gossip column it was DOA. Didn’t they even try to launch a TV channel for Restless Style? Somewhere I saved all the Restless Style covers from 2008-2010 before they stopped doing them, haha I think I might have to dig them up now.

 

That set was pretty awful with the really bizarre elevator/lift thing. I think it was a repurposed JT’s loft if I recall right. After Billy let  Restless Style fold in early 2013 it became Chelsea & Chloe’s fashion house for about a year until Chloe went berserk and their company went kaput that the show finally retired the set. 

I liked that set and all it’s incarnations. Originally, it was Victors penthouse set, I think.

Did that set also serve as Devon’s recording studio?

Can some kind soul please DM me the link to the first two episodes from 1973?

 

This is the first time in a decade that I am kicking myself for not having cable TV!

 

I posted it in the Vault, look under Full Episodes 1973 https://bit.ly/2A3Bnhv I've yet to watch it myself!

 

Edit: I'm watching and the audio is buffering a lot. Hopefully I can get a better version Monday.

I have a very teeny tiny but strange observation - they couldn't clear that short piece of background music that opens the very first shot of the truck!? They replaced it with a sound-alike version.

 

I noticed that.  Thought I was hearing things, or that they may have found a better version of the original piece of music.  It's very similar, yet seems a bit different, with more of a beat.  I don't know...

 

There were also a couple of modern cues added that I know were not there there originally, maybe to fill some quiet scenes.  The rest of the music seems to be original.

Yes i noticed even in the ending scene when the Brooks family was cleaning up the dinner table, that music cue came more in the 80's i think so i know that wasn't original.

Did the 1973 opening ever get an update? And did Jeanne Cooper or Jaime Lyn Bauer ever appear in it?  I know it was altered around 1975, but Y&R was always slow to update their opening credits until the JFP era. Like the show would go 2+ years without adding prominent cast members. And up to 6 years for the opening at the end of MAB’s run. The red opening never added any new cast members in the early 2000s. And the 1990s opening was only updated every 2 or 3 years.

haha It's amazing they kept that music all the way into 1993!

 maybe beyond on those rare occasions? 

I'm surprised they cut Hall's scenes at the end of the first episode...I'd figure they'd love to give her that royalty check. 

That is one of my favorite music cues on Y&R. Does anyone know the name of it?

So glad to finally see the second episode!

Please register in order to view this content
 The first and second shows edited together actually worked really well and though some things were cut it was still easy to follow along with the sequence of the scenes. 

Seeing the entire Brooks family together (minus Lorie) was great, It's interesting how Bill Bell definitely explained the class difference between the upper working class Brooks and the Poorer Fosters just by the dinner scenes, and we see the Foster household where an exhausted Liz has to basically act as both father and mother. It's definitely easy to tell where Snapper and then later Jill would get the desperation to make sure their family wouldn't stay poor for the rest of their lives. I guess Greg was the only Foster Sibling to not really try to appear as a social climber.

@YRfan23 That episode might have Sharon #2 and Amy #1. Going by memory here, Julianne Morris came on in early September 1994 (either during the US Open short week or the week after) and Sharon Case came on mid-September.

Yes, Cause Sharon Case debuted 9/6/94 so it would be the second one...

Nick/Sharon week? (Lord please stick with 94-96 episodes, and stay far away from 2005 and beyond)
