I was surprised - almost shocked - to realize how easy it was to accept this recast. He's not better than the original but he's terrific as the alternative Martin Peyton.
Probably the best recast in the history of prime time soap.

It was jarring at first, but yeah, he's getting more comfortable after a few episodes.

Ooopsie. Adrienne had a little accident as Eddie Jacks is planning to kill old man Peyton.

Ooh, mysterious girl drops off a baby in Peyton Place - have I reached the point of Allison replacement #2?

I was SO disappointed that the Rodney / Steven fight didn't end up with one of them pushing the others face into the fireplace - nuDynasty might've ruined me forever!

A fabulous staircase drama with a twist. Poor Eddie.

That whole thing was so twisty - Adrienne falling down the staircase! Eddie being arrested! It looking like Martin was plotting to kill Leslie (since Leslie was plotting to kill him), only for it to turn out that he was really plotting for Webber to get killed by Leslie as revenge for what happened to Ann! And then he leaves. Permanently? :omg:

I'll admit I'm not into a lot of the storylines going on right now (the Kelly baby drama / Rita seeing Joe Rossi as Joe Chernak), but thankfully they've introduced Susan Winter aka the dysfunctional lush of a wife of Reverend Winter (no s!), who has apparently been hanging around Peyton Place for a year off screen.
