Whenever I watch this past little series of shows, I also wonder why they decided NOT to cast Ned Calder.  Despite that dreadful lawyer's huffing and puffing, I think having Ned on the scene would have added an interesting element to the mix--particularly if he pursued his old flame with Liz, *and* we were allowed to see she was tempted.

I guess the Frank Garner character took on at least some of the stuff the Ned character would have done.

I think these two episodes may have been among the best in the series, just in terms of pacing, acting, etc.  Was either written by Francis Swann?

Excellent work, my dear, as always.

Your Fan,

Steve

That scene between Stokes and Julia, late in the Adam storyline, where they're in the drawing room at Collinwood with a chessboard between them, really sums up well the ambiguities of what the writers reveal regarding what Stokes does and does not know.

It's a really well written scene, played with deft finesse by a pair of true masters of their craft--Grayson Hall and Thayer David.

Given what I had heard, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed James Hall's performance in his 4 or 5 episodes when I screened them last year.  Despite his difficulties with the line readings, I thought he had an interesting take on Willie.  Very creepy--just watching him in his scenes with Vicki practically had me biting my nails (not something one is wont to do under ordinary circumstances).

I dont't think there's any question as to who is the more skilled thespian of the two.  Karlen obviously stands head and shoulders above his predecessor. But I also don't think it diminishes Karlen's achievement in the slightest to note that Hall did a better job with the role than common fan wisdom would state.

Someone asked one of the surviving cast members in NYC last year while Hall was replaced, and she answered that he had a drinking problem and was told he would have to go "but in a nice way."  (laughter from both the stage and the audience)

Patti, that all sounds delicious!

even if I still had cable, it's not available with the Neanderthals who run the cable around here.  but at least I can dream...

Anybody got captures from this???

Heather, each one of these is just perfect!

If you ever decide to set up a cafepresse shop, do give us a ring!

Of course I love the last one, with the hint that CJ is actually in the altogether... the one of Barnabas rings so true, and the one of Jules brings a lump to the old throat.

I managed to just ignore V Day this year.  I think I like that.

Barnabas:  My dear, it's no use resisting.  You WILL go on stage tonight as one of the Shangri-las, and you WILL make sure Mary performs "Remember (Walkin' in the Sand)."  And you'll get those seagull effects RIGHT this time!"

Hey, Jean-Claude, you just quoted a line from a big song in that hit of stage and screen...

FUNNY MATRIARCH!

Yes, the inspiring story of an aging recluse who turns her life around with the aid of a young governess' love, a renewed zest for living, and some really spectacular gowns and hairpieces.

One thing I actually *liked* in the 1990 remake was that they showed Barnabas pulling out this concealed drawer from the bottom of his coffin.  It was loaded with coins and jewels.

I think the closest they ever got to this in the original show was the occasions, one each I think, when Barn appealed to the greed of both Willie and Magda by handing them a single jewel and telling them "there's more where that came from."

and then there was the panel inside the cell in the basement of the Old House...

Roger: Jeff, please leave the room NOW.  Vicki's already made it perfectly clear she DOES not want to see you in your boxers!

Jason: Miss Carrrrolyn, your boyfriend said he needs a change of pace, so I'm taking him up to my room to show him my ... etchings.  Yeah.  Etchings.  That's the ticket.

Ooh, it's that hot road stallion, Buzzzz!  (sound of engines revving)  Jean-Claude, you really know the ART of pleasing a man!  (I'm referring to your skill with the capture button, sweetheart).

And Michael, it's great to see someone who really KNOWS the Sixties!  The ultimate laugh trio would be Paul Lynde, von Zipper and Buzz! Oh boy.

This is just my opinion, but I think one reason for the lag time is because the mods have to read EVERY POST.  If there weren't a lag time, there might wind up being a lot more posts for them to have to go through.

I personally like the mods, and I cherish the notion that they might, occasionally, enjoy "a life" beyond the glittering fields of these boards. (!)
