All about the Phillips....

Have just finished watching Monday's ep of Guiding Light - aka The One Where Bill and Lizzie Finally Tied The Knot!!

It was truly lovely - the vows were just gorgeous, and everyone looked like they were having the time of their lives filming it!! Even though it's got to be so hard at the moment as the end of filming date approaches (middle of August, I believe).

And the Phillip and Beth scene at the end just KILLED me dead!! I swear to God, I never liked Beth before this year. Now since she's lost Coop and found a backbone, I'm loving her! And it helps that Beth Chamberlain and Grant Aleksander have mad chemistry! I just hope that Philip manages to survive the last episode, because watching him die for real would just be too hard.

The other soap I'm loving at the moment is Y&R. Philip Chancellor III is back in town, Cane has been exposed as a con-man and this is just great soap!! (Well, it would be if Thom Bierdz could actually act.... I'd even settle for just emoting at the moment!) Admittedly, the storyline is full of plot holes so wide you could fit a HGV through them, but I'm just totally suspending my disbelief and going along for the ride! The best thing about the storyline, by far, is Tricia Cast kicking ass and taking names as P3's widow Nina.  Nina's gone from shocked to angry to confused and back to angry and all the while TC has been AWESOME -  the scene in the hospital room where she lashed out at Phillip was just brilliant - here's the YouTube clip where Phillip is explaining his accident wasnt an accident: - Nina's smackdown starts at about 7.25, and here's what she had to say:

You grew up without a father because he died in a horrible car crash. How could you turn around and-- and do that to your own child? You know, when Phillip was growing up, I told him again and again the story about how his father-- the last day that he spent on this earth-- the last thing he did was reach out to his son and take his hand because that's how much he loved his little boy. I told him that you were in heaven with the angels watching over him. You've made a liar out of me because you wanted to be dead rather than be a part of your son's life. How could you do that? How could you do that to your son?!

I'm really hoping she submits some of this stuff for next years Emmy Awards, because it's just that good!
