Quote On a Clear Day: I liked the tone and feeling of both memorial episodes and enjoyed seeing a few old faces from long ago. I just wish there had been more old cast members there. There were too few guests there to be believable, and when some spoke they went on too much about themselves or all the negative things about Katherine, or traded inappropriate jabs at each other. It seemed like the writers were using the service to fill in history for newer viewers. A memorial service usually honors a person and their good deeds more.
I liked the song Michael Damien (Danny) sang in the beginning of the 1st episode. I thought it was great playing in the background. It was good to see his sister, Gina, there also. They are a blast from the past.
I know most complain about the Y&R ghosts but I didn't mind seeing John and Kay pop in. Cassie may as well have dropped in too!
Corbin Bersen did a great job as Father Todd, Paul's brother. Knowing he is Jeanne Cooper's real life son, it was neat to watch him do the service and relate to the cast. You could tell some of it was genuine like when he and Paul hugged in Paul's office. It seemed like they knew it was the end of an era.
Quote Homesick Cajun:Quote taramartin: Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the last time we saw Danny when he came to town and slept with Cricket as though they were star crossed lovers? No wonder he looked sick at the Memorial /wedding. We've barely seen Paul with Cricket lately so I wasn't feeling the love. Paul is a good actor so he seemed to show happiness but it otherwise seemed like a misplaced farce. People in GC get married and divorced faster than any soap I've ever watched. I know they can't live happily ever after but they barely develop the relationships.
I don't think these writers are capable of writing a good love story. They are excellent at ripping couples apart for no reason. But a love story, nope, not in them.
Quote uncgrad80: Kelby, I am so sorry you and your father were so disappointed with the memorial(not funeral). I had stopped watching years ago but came back when Maura West joined the cast(let down from the writers). I had stopped again. I tuned in for the memorial. I thought it was one of the best tributes to a character and an actress. Katherine and Jeanne would have been pleased. The character was always honest about who she was. The actress did some of her best work as a drunk. I wish we could have heard more from Brock and I wish Phillip and Chance had come back. Otherwise, I thought it was wonderful. As for the wedding--from what I have read of this show lately, it was nice to have a non-violent service where no one was maimed, hurt or killed. Out of sorrow came joy. I told my husband that is the kind of memorial I would want.
