Trying To Remember, 22 March 2007
Author: dapala-1 from United States

I have read a lot about this particular serial, but I don't recall ever actually seeing it. James Mitchell has always been an interesting actor & Gregory Abels & Diana Walker seemed to compliment him well. I understand from what I read that it was very controversial for its time. Four years isn't a long time for a serial, but if it is memorable, then it lives. I wonder if this one could ever been repeated on SoapNet? I know that Joe Mascolo was also a part of the cast as Ed Lucas, crazy Vicky's father. Diana Van Der Vlis was also in the cast as Kate Hathaway. Again, I don't recall this on real well, other than what I have read, but is sounds well written & fascinating!
