From my mailbox:

Hope you can help on this one.

I’ve been re-watching Kolchak: The Night Stalker and every time a comely guest star is on the show, I take time to look them up to see if they’ve done anything in their careers.

Well, I ran across Lara Parker of Dark Shadows fame, who apparently starred in a Showtime late night soap opera called A New Day in Eden (1982-83) for one season of 66 episodes. It was billed as “TV’s first “nude” serial” along with other shows during that time like Romance and Loving Friends and Perfect Couples (1983).

The main reason I bring this up, is apparently this is a ‘lost show’ (along with Loving Friends, which only has one episode on YouTube, and that one edited). Also, I mention it because every episode apparently had one of the main cast or guest star showing some skin. Lara Parker apparently has a few episodes where she’s topless as well. There were other known soap actresses in this show as well who showed a little something as well. This show has very little information on it in IMDB and I had to go to secondary sources to find out anything about it. The forum I found apparently has the most detailed information on it online (as well as brief clips from promos for the show), as well as some other mentions of Lara’s nudity and some bits about the show.

I know you’ve managed to unearth some lost movies and scenes, hopefully you might be able to do so again, apparently there are a bunch of 80’s and 90’s cable shows lost to time that were never released on home media and if someone didn’t record it when it was broadcast, they’ll never be seen again.

I’m still looking for another late-night cable program about a office worker who sneaks into his office on the off hours and gets it on with a robot secretary which is against company policy, all I remember about it, it played before Kiss of the Spider Woman (if memory serves) other than that I don’t know anything else about it. But I digress.

I’m sure if it still does survive someone has it on a rotting VHS in their basement that has never been digitized, but who knows maybe some intrepid fan took the time to cap something / anything from the show so it’s not ‘lost to time’.

Thought I’d put it out there to you and see if you’d have better luck that I’d have had.


Unfortunately, my answer to this interesting query was “I got nothin’.” I don’t even remember this show at all, which is odd because I was a Lara Parker fan. Anybody else have something to offer?

(Mr. Skin also came up empty-handed.)

This Italian site says it is available on Canale 5, for what that’s worth.

Trump’s personal vendetta against Brian Kemp will have to wait for another day. Kemp tripled Perdue’s vote count – and then some – despite Trump’s whole-hearted opposition! Kemp won every county in the state.

The Georgia gubernatorial election will pit two of Trump’s mortal enemies in opposition. (Kemp vs Stacy Abrams) I have to think he will abstain from that choice. That’d be like Superman making a choice between Luthor and Brainiac.

Here is a .gif version of the scene in I Smile Back

Here is Sarah’s full-frontal nudity in Take This Waltz (2011)

Sarah Silverman in Masters of Sex, s2e6 (2014)

Here is a topless pic she posted to IG in 2019. (It was soon deleted.)

Here is a bare butt shot she posted on IG in 2021. (IG left that one up. They are generally OK with bare booties.)

There were some purported Sarah nudes leaked in 2021. I don’t know whether they are genuine, but if that full frontal is real and recent, she looks spectacular for a 50-year-old person of our species.
