I don't know if this link has already been posted here:

If that's really the logic behind the trailer being taken down--for paid subscribers only--wow.

It may have gotten beyond the level of scraping the bottom of the DS franchise barrel, at this point. I haven't heard of anyone who actually subscribes to that service. I own all the DVDs so there is no point in it for me.

I've always been curious about the infamous DS documentary that was shown or produced for the Sci Fi network. From what I vaguely recall about it, that was in epically bad taste but it did make people stay awake...

A well-known fan from the original broadcast era posted (on social media) a link for a trailer for the new documentary, which had been posted to youtube. Within a very short time, the youtube video had been pulled. It was gone by the time I saw the post so I have not seen this trailer.

I'm trying to wrap my mind around the mindset that would not want A TRAILER out there to promote a product. Presumably it is because an actual launch date has yet to be finalized.

The fan joked, after the link had been disabled, that perhaps the 50th anniversary video would be released in time for the actual SIXTIETH anniversary of the show. That seems increasingly likely.

This is actually a positive review of a screening of some footage from the remake.

I have no interest, but I know there are some of you who are fascinated. I guess Tilda is in the role originally played by Joan Bennett.

Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't this supposed to be the 1980-whenever Laura suddenly being replaced by portraits of Angelique?

It seems from what you have written about the plans for the series arc that when "Laura" returned in season 2, she was really going to be Angelique (once the spirit of the latter was cast out from Julia, or was it Maggie--I can't recall).

This is a well done interview with Parker Posey. Her role in the remake is discussed in the broader context of her career. I was amused that she asked another actress if she thought they were doing an episode of Columbo.

This was one I missed back then--it echoes some of the same themes as CROWHAVEN FARM. THE LAST BRIDE OF SALEM (1974).

I first heard about it maybe 8 or 9 years ago.

Yay! Happy Birthday! Wishing you many delightful treats today!

That's an interesting rumor. It seems as if Jonathan spent quite a bit of time in Mexico at some point in the Seventies, though I have no idea of the chronology. I think he was in NYC in '73, though. People who have copies of the Malia Howard biography (which was reprinted a couple of years ago) might know. Her focus was his career, not anything in his life that didn't involve the career, so I have no idea.

Now, wait a minute! In the 1991 DS, Julia was writing a history of her own family IN COLLINSPORT, but for some reason, Woodward got Elizabeth to accept that the good Doctor needed to be at Collinwood to work on this task?

I really think I would have remembered that if only because of its innate absurdity, had that been thus stated in one of the original shows.

Is this another instance of the comic book writer making yet another major gaffe??

The letters pages are amusing. I have only had time to glance, but have seen a couple of familiar names.

Yes, he was the boom microphone operator. I'd never heard that "Mr Juggins" was in reference to one of the tech guys. What a riot! Thanks, Midnite, for sharing that. Frid tells the audience that he wished Max would write a book about his time working on DS. Max unfortunately did not get to tell very many stories at this event.

One thing that came through several times is that they all remembered DS as a very special experience. Even when it was "pure bedlam," it was like no other work experience anyone had ever had. That was why the technicians were interested in coming back to talk about it.

In his panel, Addison Powell did express bewilderment as to why anyone remembered the show and was still interested in it. They tried to explain it to him. I don't think he was convinced.

Joel mentions spending time chatting with Robert Gerringer in the Manhattan Shadows tape posted on Archive by the Doctor and K9.  I think he said Mr. Gerringer had no memory of their having worked together before.

According to the blurb, Michael Stroka plays a character named Quentin in this one. Director John Sedwick from DS was on board, too.
