Loving Moments

Morgan Fairchild in The City

First of all, thanks for all the comments about Loving and The City!! Loving was a soap that Agnes Nixon created and it had a LOT of ABC Crossovers. It became "The City" after it ended when Gwyn killed half the town.  (people actually "all moved" to Soho in NYC! LOL)

David's suggest of "Fake Q's" is a great one. Tracy hired actors to play her family.  Here's the clip:

There are a lot more, if you search "Fake Quartermaines on the City" you'll get them. This is the best, and it has Lisa LoCicero (as Jocelyn)  on it as well.  Tracy was involved with the Soletto crime family in that soap.
Jeremy Hunter, from AMC also made a crossover to "Loving" to help solve the murders... "Angie" was also on it for awhile.  Skye Chandler also crossed over (she was ALWAYS crossing over somewhere lol). Tess from OLTL was on The City played by Catherine Hickland.

Just know that the references tie into the Jerome family, Faison (who was on for a brief stint) and the fact that Gwyn poisoned people because of the pain she is feeling. It's a nod to Agnes Nixon and the glory days of soaps, even though Loving and The City weren't rating bonanzas. I don't think it will interfere with your understanding if you don't know the history, it's just a little gift to us ABC soap-obsessed.

I LOVED the promos for this time period:

There is an excellent Blog called "The Television Crossover Universe" that chronicles some of ABCs character crossovers. It's worth a read if you are into that.

The site Soaps.Come  "She Knows" also has a nice summary of "The City" up .

HOUSEKEEPING NOTES: As you can see,   I'm playing around with the blog format a bit. Time for a little change. I'm taking a break soon as I need a little holiday. Will let you know when that happens. I will also be returning to work Sept 4th--so the blogs may be a bit late due to the fact I'll be DVRing them.  Things are heating up so I'm sure I'll keep watching!!

Spoilers will be up soon, I have a lot to get to-- so check back after 1pm today to find out what's happening on GH in the coming weeks. I promise I won't give TOO MUCH info (partly because they keep such a tight wrap on stuff and partly because being some-surprised is great!!) and you'll always see something to make you laugh. Thanks for all the support: visiting the sponsor links and ordering from Amazon. Hope you are enjoying the show!
