This Week in Daytime,
I teared up at As the World Turns’ tribute to Nancy Hughes (Helen Wagner). The episode contained so many wonderful flashbacks. I was in the midst of patting myself on the back for not letting it get to me when they began Nancy’s Thanksgiving prayer and I knew I was a goner. Of course, that touching scene was immediately followed by Katie’s (Terri Colombino) flashbacks of Nancy. I know each ATWT fan has their own fond memories, but there are three reasons I fell in love with ATWT and Oakdale. 1) I discovered ATWT because it was where my beloved Another World characters ended up. 2) I couldn’t get enough of Jack (Michael Park) and Carly’s (Maura West) on again/off again relationship 3). Katie and Simon’s (Paul Leyden) romance–nurtured by Nancy–hooked me. Share your favorite Nancy Hughes moments in the comments. We miss you Helen Wagner.
Next week, Noah (Jake Silbermann) sees Reid (Eric Sheffer Stevens) with another man (Chris, Daniel Cosgrove) and tells Luke (Van Hansis). Blackthorn (Billy Warlock) discovers a microphone bug on Carly (Maura West) and Dusty (Grayson McCouch) is pushed into a van. Watch the As the World Turns promo after the jump.
I dare to be different, march to the beat of the music I hear inside my head, and root for the underdog. Of course, even the soaps are not safe from my eccentric thinking. I have been thoroughly enjoying As the World Turns for the past few weeks and have some very strong, albeit potentially unpopular thoughts about what I would like to see before my "World" stops turning in September. Please be gentle with me and hurl only fresh tomatoes in my general direction. READ MORE
