Cousin Barnabas, I would tend to agree.  But this Vicki is very different from any other version of the character we've ever seen.  She's expensively and carefully coiffed and groomed, reads Forbes mag, and seems to have had some medical/psychiatric training--the snippet you just quoted is supposedly typical of how social works specializing in disturbed children talk, amongst themselves, about their cases (and having been privy on occasion to such conversations, it's not really that wide off the mark).

This Vicki seems so far almost more like an update of Julia than Vicki as portrayed in either the OS or the 1991 series.  There's no innocence and certainly no sense of a personal quest bringing her to Collinsport.

I don't remember enough of Vicki's further scenes to say more, but I'll be interested to see how this Vicki plays out as we continue our collective viewing of her journey...

Fascinating. Was Greystone ever used as a set for a movie set in Imperial Rome?  The mural looks like something that might have been seen in a Roman country villa.

I saw Addison Powell a couple of years ago in an episode of the series CORONET BLUE filmed in NYC around 1965.

Didn't Roger once mention giving Mrs. J a recipe (or as older family members used to say, a receipt) for Indian pudding?

LOL, Cousin Barnabas!

Can I say again just how much I am LOVING this thread!

Can I also say even though it probably belongs under the "Testing" board that I ADORE the new Original Series montage which features a gorgeous shot of Hoffman sneering royally, front and center, probably uttering a line such as "HE had EVERYTHING" or "There can BE only ONE Mrs. Collins" .... LOVE IT!!!

Excellent.  I'm sure Joan was Hollywood glamour incarnate in VOGUES OF 1938.  And it was just her birthday, too...

I'm not sure if the quote is still there at the beginning of this thread, but doesn't one of the first moments in the pilot involve Vicki trying and failing to get a signal on her cell phone once she gets off the train?

Very cool. Powell is mentioned several times in Stuart Little's OFF BROADWAY (a work that also features a fab photo of Grayson in THE BALCONY), and Little is quite complimentary about Powell's abilities, so I presumed it was just the crazy production schedule on DS that resulted in his difficulties.  Somebody must have liked him since they brought him back for 1840.

Again, MB, this is all fascinating.  I don't remember Carolyn at all from my one viewing of this, and I certainly don't recall her scene with Vicki at this point. 

The chart is pretty cool but I actually find your discursive notes the most helpful, since I do not have a copy of the screenplay, or a tape of the film (obviously). 

I would, of course, completely understand if you're unable to keep up with writing the notes.  Life happens while we are making other plans (jejune comment, but true).

Best, G.

The idea of a Witch being behind a Witch trial is certainly reminiscent of where DS went with the original 1795 storyline and the respective roles of Trask and Angelique in it...

I'm laughing, though, at the idea of Cotton Mather as this bearded hunk.  lol.  And what the hell is that person acting like a human dog wearing some kind of archaic muzzle supposed to be about??  Reminds me of the antics at Vincent Price (Prince Prospero)'s court in the 1963 Roger Corman film, MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH.

An interesting note about the Burke plane crash incident is that so far as I remember, this was the last time the writers played with the idea that David was actively clairvoyant.  If I'm remembering correctly, that notion began with Burke himself present David with a gift of a crystal ball, so it's in some ways fitting that after Burke left, the subplot failed to be an active part of the proceedings.  Of course, it could be argued that the "haunting of Collinwood" plot and subsequent developments still showed that David had a very special affinity for the spirit world, but that's a little different from having the gift of prophecy.

Wonderful.  So, none of this was in the completed pilot?  The scene with Willie and Sophia in the kitchen? Because I don't remember it at all.  But then, it seems as if there was quite a bit from my one viewing that I just don't recall... you and Midnite must have made awesome notes from your respective viewings!!

Admiringly,

Well, the way I see it is [spoiler]the way the original narrative played out in 1968-69, it was indeed Quentin's skeleton that was found in his old room.  I think that when Beth's ghost tells Julia the events of the night when Quentin died, he did wind up making his way back into his bedroom.  Presumably Judith ordered it bricked up and closed the West Wing permanently to avoid any whisper of scandal, leaving word that Quentin had left town again for another of his "sojourns."  The idea of a skeleton in a forgotten room might have been a steal from the William Faulkner story, "A Rose for Emily"--an amazingly creepy tale.  Anyhow, the idea of Judith's revenge on Trask ending the way it did seems to have emerged from the question, "Then just whose skeleton did the kids find in the West Wing?"  Had Count Petofi's plan succeeded, it's conceivable that at one point, the "evil ghost" might have had the appearance of Quentin but actually been the spirit of Petofi.  What really doesn't make sense is that after Barnabas and Julia return, everyone in the family still retains the memory of Quentin's haunting, which technically never happened in the revised timeline.  I think Warren Oddson tried to come up with some bizarre theory to "explain" this--I've just come to accept that it's "more DS weirdness at work.[/spoiler]

But then,the fascination of this show is that each fan can have her or his own interpretation of what happens onscreen and it's open ended enough that any way you have of looking at certain things can be deemed valid.

Fans, I kept thinking that something looked familiar about Actor Murray Bartlett.  I was reading this interview and then it suddenly hit me... he looks a lot like the older Joel Crothers was Joel was sporting a moustache.  WARNING, interview has sexually explicit language and some profanity.  The host site includes some male nudity as well though there is none on this particular page:

http://www.buttmagazine.com/magazine/interviews/murray-bartlett/

Anyone who checks Murray out--do you see a resemblance to Joel?

I'm not watching Looking but maybe I should... I think I could get it via iTunes.

FreshMayo, absolutely love your handle and avatar!

It's nice to see someone else keeping alive the sacred flame at the Clarice Blackburn altar.

I'm personally not a fan of Murphy's work.  It seems from what I can determine that AHS is his own way of riffing on DS...
