The 80s episodes are the ones to watch if you're seeing the show for the first time on YouTube. There's so much to enjoy. For me the Barbara and James Stenbeck storyline is the continuing thread that's worth watching all the way until the end of the series. As for Luke and Noah though, I wanted to like their story but it's terribly dull ( like much of ATWT circa 2004-2010), and the actor playing Noah... can't act.

Lisa Brown was so glum and depressing as Iva. Viewers literally wanted to take a bath with a plugged-in iron after watching her try to act. Am I the only one who would love to have seen what the luminous and vivacious Kathy Glass could've done with the role? Because Miss Glass was (and is!) so youthful looking, Marland would've had to rewrite the Iva/Lily story as Iva being Lily's DAUGHTER, but it could've worked. Miss Glass, with her superior Q score and history of record-setting teen fan mail, would've drawn in viewers under 85 to this show for a change.

What a wonderful Thanksgiving it was at Emma's! Delicious food and delectable gossip! Emma is a divine cook, but her eavesdropping porch is heaven! It was just a fantastic day for me.

I was not at all surprised to learn that Cecile De Poulignac has moved on to The Sultan of Brunei. But I was startled to learn that India von Halkein was the reason behind that break up and is now ensconced in the palace in Tanquir!

That Donna Love! Always the cougar! As if Matthew Cory weren't enough for her. She's now blissfully happy with Parker Munson Snyder. Or are they so happy? I noticed Donna chatting up Zach Spaulding at the dessert table. Hummmm.

Oh my, the feathers were flying when Carly Tenney and Felicia Gallant got into a cat fight. Seems that Felicia has been trying her hand at dress designing and Carly "borrowed" a few of those designs. But the real news came that Carly "borrowed" those designs after a night of scissoring with Felicia. Ssshhhh! Don't tell anyone. Felicia thinks it would ruin her man-hungry image if people knew she had taken that walk on the wild side after she fell off the wagon.

Quite interesting to learn Alexandra Spaulding and Carl Hutchins have a past together! Seems she and Carl were at item about nine months before the birth of Lujack and Nick. Hummm. I wonder if a paternity test is coming in the future?

We all knew that Andy Dixon and Mike Kasnoff would eventually become a couple, but my jaw dropped to learn that Jack Snyder and Mike are having an affair on the side. But Ssshhhh! Don't tell anyone. It's a secret!
