Random Thoughts, Questions, & Ideas
By Patti G


Just finished watching SOAPnet’s La Lucci Marathon: 

  • Episode – Tom Discovers Erica is taking birth control pills:

    I found it interesting seeing Susan so young, and very pregnant. I am sure at the time I originally watched this episode I was not paying attention to how full her face was, how big her clothing was, or how they were shooting her from the stomach up. I was also amazed on her hair and makeup. Not at all very glamorous back then. 

    I was never a fan of Tom Cudahy, I did not find him very attractive or such a great “catch” for women to be fighting over. However, while I can understand him being a strict Catholic, and that what Erica did was very serious, I had forgotten how big of a temper he had. If I did not know better, I swear I thought he was going to physically hurt Erica. I also found it interesting that back then even if the house was his, how a husband could just throw his legally wedded wife out, and that Erica would have just accepted this. Times have sure changed. 

  • Episode – Erica’s Meltdown:

    Well, first off, how great did Susan look in that hot red dress? I loved her hair dark as well. Watching her go off the rails at the award benefit was very interesting. I always thought that her drug addiction storyline was her best and should have got her the Emmy.

    I also looked fondly at that episode to see how big the cast was back then. Also how many fine actors are now gone (Palmer, Myrtle, Phoebe) and the actors that were “killed” off, Edmund and Trevor. I miss having those rare occasions on AMC when the whole cast would be together. 

    I also thought about many years later, how Maria would have a similar breakdown at a gathering. 

  • Episode – Return of Miranda:

    The whole Miranda storyline from Babe and Bianca giving birth together alone through the final discovery of both Miranda and AJ being alive and back with their parents was an amazing story. It involved so many characters and subplots, and it cast the dye for future stories. 

    Seeing Kendall with Ethan, and knowing later she would marry his father, Zach. Seeing again so many characters gathered together for a single episode. It brought back so many wonderful memories. 

    Erica basically willing Bianca back to life with just her maternal strength. 

  • Episode – Erica and Jack’s Wedding:

    I know this may shock some, but I really do not get excited watching weddings on soaps. I always find them too sappy. However, in this instance, I loved this wedding. First it was nice that it was just family. I love how Jack’s “kids” walked him in and Erica’s “kids” walked her in. The Banyon Tree analogy was a favorite of mine. I did always like their blended family. I enjoyed each of the kids speaking their peace at the ceremony, I thought that was very touching. This was a mature wedding between two people who have been through so much and finally got it together. It was not some starry-eyed over-the-top fantasy wedding like we are usually accustomed to. 

Well, that is all. I know I left out an episode, but for the life of me right now, I cannot remember what it was. I look forward tonight for the Last Chance Romance Marathon. I am going to watch it starting a 5 pm (ET) and at 8 pm I will record it and watch the Emmy’s. After watching the shows I missed, I will catch up with all of you. 

I realize this week is going to be hard for me and for many of you out there. I know we all thought that AMC ending would never happen. So let us all be there for one another this week. 

             Well, that’s about all for now. Have a great week.

                    I would love to hear from any of my readers.
