||I don't know much about 1994 soaps, but I did watch 1994 episodes of AMC... and Tornado was AMAZING! Alongside Sunset Beach's Shockwacke/Earthquake, it's my favorite Soaps Disaster Storyline, when it comes to special effects. But AMC's was even better in regards to storyline, since the tornado had affected lives of people, i.e. Julia being scared, running away and meeting Noah, who was named best new character which is awesome, since I LOVED Julia and Noah :D|

I haven't seen any of the tornado episodes, aside from Tad's reunion with his dead loved ones. From what I've heard it was fantastic. It seems like 1994 and parts of 1995 were the last time AMC fired on all cylinders.
I wasn't a big fan of Julia and Noah in their later stuff but I did hear their early scenes were great.

Oh, yeah. Tornado was AWESOME! I remember everything... Tad went to open the door, but the tornado burst the door open and the hit Tad; Janet and Kendall (played by an awesome Sarah Michelle Gellar) were in stables when it hit; a bunch of others were at Adam and Gloria's party and when it hit, the chandalier fell near Julia and the glass from it cut her face.
And early Noah/Julia was awesome. I gotta admit, they canceled AMC after one year here, so I didn't get to see really much after 1995...
Here is the clip of the tornado

That was great, especially everything at the wedding. Thank you! Who was the woman in the black dress being carried in?
I love how the extras run the hell out of there. I guess they knew they were expendable...
|Manny||Dec 8 2010, 08:38 AM Post #6|
The woman being carried in is Laurel Banning. She was married to Trevor and Jackson at one point, if I remember correctly. She and Janet were rivals.

||Thanks. I remember Laurel (hated her), but didn't recognize her there.|

||BJ's death was one of the most memorable and heartbreaking moments in my soap viewing experience. I was felt like I was feeling the same things the characters were. Some of GH's best scenes ever.|

What?! No Kristian Alfonso for best female comeback?? ~ That was amazing imo.
I first started watching DAYS with episodes fom 1993, so I never knew Bo & Hope as a couple- or that KA was on DAYS before. I had only seen her on Melrose Place & Baywatch, then we saw the mystery woman's face and it was KA's. I was thrilled because I loved her on the shows mentioned.. Then as time would go on, and Peter Reckell came back as Bo, REAL flashbacks could be used and I saw snippets of them from the 80's- and LOVED it. Then came YT with MANY Bope clips/ SLs- I was in heaven discovering it all :wub:
I can only imagine what Hope/Bope fans fom the 80's must've felt like that day back in 1994...
