This Week’s BEACON HILL: Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew Deliver Bravura Performances!

This past Wednesday, Beacon Hill released their 8th installment in an episode entitled, “Regret” which featured a knockout script which resonates to anyone who has ever been in a relationship only to have someone walk out on the other and have their heart and their trust broken.  And then, how do you deal with that when you see them again after many years?  Old feelings are dredged up: the hurt, anger, the regret, the love, it’s all there and underneath the surface.

With a fantastic script from Beacon Hill creators Linda and Jessica Hill along with Skip Shea, the latest episode finally brought Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew together in a room as Katherine and Sara to have that long awaited conversation that was six years in the making in the back-story of Beacon Hill.

Sarah Brown is one of the finest actresses, period. When she is on screen she commands your attention and her choices are interesting and raw, and she captivates you.   And in “Regret” she truly delivered … the pain, the anger, the trying to make sense of it all at how this woman she loved walked out on her …. and now questioning …. what does she want?  Brown was phenomenal with playing all the complex emotions that were so relatable to anyone who has been in a similar situation or has even gone through a tad of the heartbreak of someone walking out on your relationship without saying even goodbye!

Alicia Minshew showed strength, vulnerability, and depth as well.  It was so nice to see her get a chance to show her chops in major scenes of substance once again, something she did time after time as Kendall Hart Slater on All My Children.  But Katherine is no Kendall.  And while Sara was the one who walked out on Katherine all those years ago, Minshew showed her hurt and regret for the pain she caused her former lady love, but still has that major issue with the thought of her grandfather (Ron Raines) manipulating Katherine for political gain and more!

The question becomes, how will these two former women-in-love, who clearly still have feelings for each other make it back to one another?  Or, will they?  If you have not got tuned into Beacon Hill yet, get on board now as there are only four episodes left of season one by subscribing via logging on to their website here!

If you saw this week’s Beacon Hill, what did you think of Sarah and Alicia’s performances and the script?  Let us know!

Thanks for the recognition for this episode Michael. Sarah was amazing the last episode. I felt every emotion she conveyed. And Alicia was fantastic as well, I felt sympathy for her even though she was the one who left. Their chemistry is fanastic. Really, really enjoying this series.

I liked the episode and like the show in general. I have to say that I found it a little disingenuous for a grown women to keep whining about her grandfathers control over her ex. Once-believable, Twice – if you have to. But over and over again?

I love it. The script is great, the acting superb, and the production is slick and professional. Each new project Crystal Chappell takes on (with the team she assembles) just keeps getting better. Keep up the great work, everyone!

Well said. Crystal is extraordinary. I’m so glad I started watching her Otalia storyline on GL, which led to Venice, then The Grove, and now Beacon Hill. Way to go, Crystal. Much gratitude from this fan!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
