Quoting limited to 4 levels deepEVER. Luke and Laura dancing in the department store sealed the deal for me with them.
I loved so many of stories back then -- Alan/Monica/Rick/Lesley/Susan, Luke and Laura on the run from Frank Smith. I hope there are repeats this weekend.
Man, darn work! HAHA My hubby and I watching this and is just amazed how well the story holds up-- even after all these years! (The fashions--different story! LOL ) . We are just laughing at the thought the we watched this in 1980! I was a 14 years old! I can remember watching this back then and going to school the next day discussing what happened the day before on GH! What memories!
You and I are in the same age group -- I was 13 years old and soap opera crazy (I guess I still am to a lesser extent LOL). My older brothers even watched! They both were Luke fans and thought Laura and Bobbie were hot. And they loved the Frank Smith mob stuff.
My friends and I watched the ABC block at the time and GH was at the top of the list. Like you, we talked about GH. I used to run home to watch -- it came on right after I got out from school.
The storytelling -- there's no comparison between then and now. And the location shots. There's no way a Wyndhams type shoot could happen even if a show wanted to shoot one.
ITA - really great memories. I'm glad that I grew up during that era soap opera wise (I sound so old!).
I can remember when all of this was on and I was in Marching Band--the entire band watched it. We were learning a new routine and the director wanted us to stay after school for two weeks to learn this routine--the tuba and drum players (all guys) told the director they couldn't because GH was on and Luke and Laura was getting really good! LOL
Amazing that one show can bring back such crazy memories! :)
I plead guilty to staying home sick from school on the day of Luke and Laura's wedding.
Yep, it is amazing. Soap operas meant a lot back then.
