Characters we love, amidst average quality fare, on a popular street, bigger than Ramsay

Yes it was the very different array of characters, we got to know and love in E Street, but it just didn't stand up to the other mainstream soapies. May'be we had seen two many like this before, but really the story lines weren't up with the others, or weren't anything special. It was more the characters that moved us, some of the young cast, disappearing and becoming shadows. Most memorable was Alyssa Jane Cook, Marcus Graham, and hot Toni Pearen. I remember the character, C.J, her love interest, was or went blind, and hot guest star hottie Caz Lederman went nuts with a knife once, in one of the earlier shows, where our Father (Tony Martin) tried to talk her down. Look, I really did like the show, and it did make 89' a memorable year, but as in quality, it was just of average stature, but this and almost every other soapie, is better than The Bold And The Beautiful. Incidentally, B and B, first came out this same year too, on in the mornings at 11. But on an enjoyable scale, E Street was quite the tasty entertainer with a great soundtrack. Penny Cook's little girl played by Brooke Mikey Anderson, was cute too. Cook's performance was very good in this, too. Yeah, where did she go, besides that movie, Coda. Check out Vince Martin's entry into the show.
