I’m sorry to say I’m going to have to take a break from this blog. I’ve been posting weekly since 2006, and recently it’s gotten harder to find the time to give it the focused attention it deserves.
I will however, continue to watch my DVDs. I will likely be unable to resist posting my thoughts on the Cruise of Deception, Steve’s death, Jack and Jennifer’s wedding, and Shayla. So feel free to check back in occasionally. But, for now, I won’t be posting weekly anymore.
But here’s something fun to close things out. I just got a couple of new DVDs that have the Daytime Emmys from 1986 through 1989. I haven’t watched them all yet, but I got a big kick out of this clip from 1986:
(Check out Jane Krakowski on Search for Tomorrow—I had no idea. And with such hair!)
I had heard that TPTB were toying with a Hope/Steve pairing back in the day, and I think this clip, with its little teaser kiss, reinforces that idea. It’s funny to think what is considered, and discarded, in the writing rooms. But, though there’s no doubt these two have chemistry, I’m so glad they didn’t go that direction. I always treasured Hope and Steve’s friendship. Chemistry doesn’t always have to be romantic.
EDIT: Oh, my, check out Matt Ashford from his Search for Tomorrow days!
