Erica Kane was right. Everything she does is breaking news! The Associated Press has a new feature article about Erica's upcoming cougarific love match with none other than Ryan Lavery. Get this, according to the article, it's AMC viewers who the show attributes with wanting this storyline. How about that, they do listen to the fans occasionally! I know I will no doubt be in the minority here at DC, but I can't wait to see Susan Lucci purring all over Cameron Mathison. Both stars have international appeal, and can get this storyline talked up in the pages of Us Weekly and People. This could be a really good thing for the show in terms of buzz factor. Hopefully the storyline will also lead to some good, old-fashioned mother/daughter bitch slappin' between Kendall and Erica. Bring on the cougar scratch fever I say!
Hot on the heels of my admittedly scathing review of Friday's ultra-campy, Scooby Doo meets The Munsters inspired episode of All My Children which culminated in the murder of Stuart (Not Adam) Chandler, I finally had the opportunity to catch up with Guiding Light, which had its own less heralded "Who Killed Edmund Winslow?" whodunit kick off.

Regular Daytime Confidential readers and aficionados may have noticed that this lovely website has added daily recaps of most of the soaps on the air, in addition to Perkie's longtime (and often hilarious) observations about General Hospital. Conspicuously absent from the recaps — at least as of this writing — has been what might be considered the quintessential forerunner of the modern soap opera, All My Children.
Not too long ago, our fearless leader, Luke, asked if I would be able to write a daily recap of the show since I've been watching it; I regrettably informed him that because of a currently unpredictable schedule (hence, why there are long lags between my posts these days) I would be unable to do so. Instead, I suggested that I would divert my recent attentions from Guiding Light to AMC a bit more closely and blog about life in Pine Valley more regularly. Since then I've mightily tried to get a grip on the show, but unfortunately watching All My Children is not unlike walking on pine cones barefoot: it's not the worst feeling in the world, but it is still pretty painful.
