Speaking of Dina, in the 1984 episode on Tuesday she was serving up some Alexis Carrington Colby fierceness. Bill Bell used elements of Alexis for Dina: mother abandons her family, lives a jet set life, remarries a wealthy businessman, becomes widowed, inherits late husband's business that rivals the ex-husband's business.  Bill Bell couldn't make Dina British or even French and have her live in a luxury penthouse as that would be too obvious LOL.

 

Although he hasn't appeared in any of the classic episodes, I think Marc Mergeron was Y&R's most Dynasty character haha.

 

 

For a woman who abandoned her family and children, we've certainly seen a lot of Dina Mergeron throughout a lot of these classic episodes

Yeah, we totally have. Episodes from Dina's original run 1983-1986, then her returns in 1991 and 1996, and her most recent run.

They should have shown her first episodes from 1983 when she crashed the Abbott party with her black veil ALA Alexis Carrington.

A clip of Dina's 1983 arrival was on YT years ago. Maybe an upcoming theme week for long lost relatives returning might have that episode.

For you longtime Y&R fans, was there always continuous contempt towards Dina as there was when she returned again a couple years back? In soapland, I would think a 3-year run (1983-86) would equal a lot of mending of fences and forgiveness. 

When she returned in Nov '91 (ostensibly for Traci's wedding but really since she was broke) it was said that she had cut off contact with the family during the prior few years, so that created new family tension even if she had previously mended fences in the 80s.

Friday, July 31:
"Victor reunites with his estranged father, Albert Miller"
(I assume that's from a press release).


Those CBS press releases are sometimes written by people who don't understand what's going on.

He is not an "estranged father". 

The word "estranged" means "having lost former closeness and affection".

 

It should say Victor confronts his cruel biological father who was never a father to him.

[KC]Dear God in Heaven [/KC]...what in the world is Katherine wearing?

 

Brad is Neil's best man here but when I started watching his best friend was Ryan, when did they become friends?

Honestly they couldn't have picked Victor's debut episode from February 8, 1980 for Monday's episode?? He's the whole reason there IS a pack of Newman's! Ugh

 

And I agree with you all about them starting some kind of service where they upload all the classic episodes to a site, such as All Access or something like that. B&B's been doing it in the Netherlands! There's no reason why Y&R can't follow suit.
