A wise post

I apologize for my lack of posts recently – I just finished moving (the second time in six months).

Lynn Liccardo has a great post here about Grant Aleksander’s return to Guiding Light. Personally, I’m cautiously optimistic, but in the last few years, we’ve seen lots of returns and lots of great ideas start well and end up completely off the rails.

I completely understand why many fans are cynical or have a complete lack of trust in the outcome. We’ve been denied payoff on so many stories on EVERY show that the fans feel very much like Charlie Brown trying to kick that damn football.

Having Phillip back on GL is a great move, but only if the show draws on its history and reconnects all the dots as well as implements forward movement for the story and for the character.

The question is, with all of the changes GL has made, will Aleksander’s return make an impact?

  1. patrick, thanks for the shout-out. it seems there’s never a dull moment in soapsville. can’t wait for the fallout from the firing of drake and deidre on DOOL, since both their firing and GA hiring represent parts of the larger problems facing serial storytelling, both daytime and primetime.
