Trivia

Harding Lemay was rehired to be the show's head writer in 1988, but a long-standing writers' strike kept him from participating. Donna Swajeski wrote the show during the strike, and was kept on to co-write the show with Lemay after the strike was over. The two clashed on the show's direction, and Lemay left. His return lasted only two months. In that time, he set up the stories that many claim Swajeski took much of the credit for: the return of Iris and the Frame family with never before seen members, including Janice Frame's long-lost son Evan Bates, and the romance of Felicia and Mitch.

I recently found soap-net on my TV and was so excited to see that they are airing old episodes of Another World. I tape each show and watch them over and over, especially the "Snow Flake Ball" episodes. What beauty and glamor they showed! I've been watching Another World since the very beginning as a small girl because it was on when i got home from school and the maid was watching as she ironed shirts. I also learned how to iron as well! I always loved the show because it had an element of mystery about it. Now that I'm older, it's so refreshing to see a show that stays with the real problems and emotions of it's characters rather than the silly, off the wall, fantasy driven plots of the shows now. The shows today seem to be competing to see which is the most surreal, racy, and ridiculous. Take me away to Another World anytime.
