I miss that for a lot of characters - not just Marlena, but Marlena particularly.

As much grief as people want to give Josh Taylor these days, I don't think a lot of people realize exactly HOW popular he was back then as Chris Kositchek. He was constantly ranking high on various lists of daytime's hottest hunks. He even won the 1978 Soapy Award (later renamed Soap Opera Digest Award) for Favorite Male Newcomer.
I remember crushing on him when I was little when he was on the Hogan family! :embarrassed:
JT as Chris K was fun and kinda awesome. Just like how Marlena used to be allowed to wear jeans, crack jokes, etc. Maggie used to be allowed to have affairs.
Apparently only Julie is allowed to age with her full personality intact.
Remember when Marlena wore sweats, at home, and sat around reading books, at home? Her kids coming over for advice, at her home? John and Marlena fooling around before or after bickering, at home? Marlena making snide, sassy remarks at whatever was going on? Because she had a home, and a personality, and was allowed to be the smartest person in the room?
That's what I miss most of all.
