I'm a Y&R; boy, but I really want to urge everyone to watch OLTL...and to
tell their friends and family to do so. There needs to be a viral
explosion of viewership.
The Tuesday 6/3 episode was mind blowing.
I won't recap the plot, but there were all the veterans the show had to
muster pretty much front and center (Bo, Nora, Viki, Clint). I would
say 100%% of the cast was on. There was a huge umbrella event that made
the cast mostly be in the same room. There were huge stakes, but based
in human emotion and relationships (someone tempted to fall off the
wagon, a young expectant father plunging off a parapet, revealed stolen
identities, humor and inuendo, and mostly an "Alexis Carrington" moment
as Dorian Lord revealed that she had acquired control of Buchanan
Enterprises...mostly for revenge). There was even a moment STRAIGHT out
of Dynasty (when Blake Carrington strangled Alexis for taking his
company) as Clint Buchanan strangled Dorian (also in a big hat) for
My tastes for soaps are more realistic and earth-bound, mostly, but I
did love Dynasty/Dallas/KL in their heydays. I also liked soaps when
they were more energetic and passionate (glory days of AMC, GH).
