:) AMC's Bobby Martin (Michael Bersell) has been a symbol of soap opera silliness ever since the twelve-year-old son of Dr. Joe Martin went upstairs in 1970 and never came back down. It may be the single most gratuitous and ridiculous write-out in all of soap opera history.
n the eve of AMC's last network airdate, the Orlando Sentinal has located Michael, and he's all grown up, of course. He's not acting anymore He changed careers and now works, like Mario Batali, as a professional chef. For Disney.
Allegedly Bobby Martin went upstairs to get his ski's to take to summer camp. So they were most likely Water Skis. Why the moronic writers thought no one would notice is beyond me. Same with the people at 'Happy Days' with Chuck And the worst offender are the idiots at 'Family Matters' where they suddenly dumped the Character Judy after 3 SEASONS ON THE SHOW! What kind of idiots do that?
I guess they just figured no one pays any attention to details like that. they guessed wrong. lol
