I think Reid & Luke are the real thing. Noah still acts like a best friend. He can be the loving friend, who lives in LA.

While LuRe is exciting, deep down, I’m a Nuke fan.

Nuke/Schmuke. There’s more fire between Luke and Reid than any other couple on the show, and more than there ever was during the ackward puppy-love scenes between Luke and Noah. Hats off to Eric Sheffer Stevens for his fearless portrayal of Reid Oliver and to Van Hansis for stepping up his game.

I like Luke and Reid together, eventhough Noah is Luke first love, but he always made Luke sad, and everytime when something is wrong, Noah will always need a break or space. It time he don’t take Luke for granted

Luke and Reid – no question! They are hot, hot, hot! Luke and Noah were juvenile and boring…LuRe is spicy and mature! I hope the writers are listening….

I love Nuke but I cannot deny how much intensity and attraction exists between Luke and Reid. I’m hoping they at least explore whatever is between them before and if Luke returns to Noah.

I started out as a NUKE fan fair enough, but towards where Noah got hurt the relationship sorta died. When Dr. O turned up, skeptical at first but. I honestly think and hope that Luke will go with the good Doc, cos Noah. First love, first time, but in all honesty Luke needs a grown up adult relationship and Dr. O is willing to give that to him. I’m loving the story line! For once, I can hardly wait for it to come on, I’ve never been so over excited about a soap in my entire life!!

I just hope the writers don’t do something which could potential upset a fanbase, because I’ve noticed. Because both NUKE and RUKE have large fanbases but right now it’s a more ‘wait and see’ process! *crosses fingers that the writers make both Luke, Noah and Reid happy*

I never watched Luke and Noah, they bored me and I ff most of their scenes but Luke and Reid have such good chemistry that I cant wait for them to come on

Luke and Reid are made for each other. Noah was the first love, but also the only one Luke has ever been with and their differences as they get older show. They just are not compatible and Noah is a complete bore and treats Luke like crap. Reid Oliver is a breath of fresh air and he and Luke could be very good for each other. They are both alike and not alike but their differences complement each other.

Luke needs to be with Reid! The chemistry between them is amazing! Noah was a great young love/first boyfriend, but lately with his pushing Luke away and blaming him for his blindness, there’s no question in my mind that Luke needs to get out of that toxic relationship. He needs someone who will treat him right even when things are difficult. Pick Reid, Luke!

Your first love isn’t necessarily your last, or your greatest for that matter.

Luke and Noah was a wonderful late teen/early adult love story, and that should never be forgotten. But the characters have moved beyond each other, and to continue to hold Luke to Noah and a relationship that he’s obviously outgrown would be a mistake, in my opinion.

Luke is fostering something amazing, refreshing and *mature* with Reid, and as a result, we’re starting to see the Luke we used to know and love – funny, sexy, hot-headed, snarky and always full of heart – instead of the simpering, suffering lovesick pup that the relationship with Noah had reduced him to, always contenting himself with whatever scraps of conditional affection Noah chose to give.

Luke and Reid have a phenomenal chemistry — they play off of each other so well, and Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens are doing an excellent job playing these characters.

Viewers can’t help but take notice when they’re on screen together, and when they kiss? :fans self: Oh my. If I had pearls, I would clutch them.

They’re sizzling together, and I hope the writers are listening to the fans’ outpouring of support for this pairing.

I hope that As The World Turns goes out with a bang and pairs Luke with Reid in the end.

Definitely Luke & Reid should be together. The last couple of years of the relationship between Noah & Luke they seemed like best friends, not lovers. They were cute together, but cuteness only goes so far. Luke became clingy & needy & had no life if Noah didn’t pay him any attention. With Reid he’s becoming his own person & growing up. I think the main reason he was with Noah was because Noah depended on him for a place to live & money & he had no family.

Luke needs someone who is his equal so he can be whole & truly happy in life. I’ve seen more passion & caring about what Luke wants from Reid so far than the whole time Luke & Noah were together. Noah only thought about himself & what he was feeling, not what Luke was needing.

I feel that Luke does love Noah, but he is not in love with him. He is in love with Reid. Luke and Reid have True Love, and True Love is REAL LOVE. I wish they would go ahead and say it to each other. Reid is trying so hard not to get hurt. When he and Luke converse, I feel that he is trying to get Luke to tell him how he really feels, but they keep beating around the bush, instead of saying how they really feel. They both are difinitely in love.

Luke and Reid are amazing together and I never thought I would say that. I love the looks, the not so subtle tension, and the heat they have. Reid is tough and yet so vulnerable when it comes to Luke. Luke just needs to make a choice and stick to it. Reid doesn’t want Luke hurt and doesn’t want to pressure him in any way. It’s all so bittersweet to think it’s coming to an end. All of ATWT turns will be sadly missed. Thanks to all the actors and especially to Van, Eric and Jake. Excellent actors all three!

I think Luke and Reid are good for each other in every way. When Luke was with Noah Luke was always crying about something Noah said or did whereas with Reid, Luke was more like himself talking back and not crying about it. So what if Noah was Luke’s first love. Who says people always end up with their first love. Look at Katie, Lisa, Allison they all had first love but there is always something or someone better out there. I want Noah to be happy too, he had told Luke that he wanted to be more independent now would be a good time and focus on working on his videos. Hopefully later on he could find someone like Richard.

It has to end out with Luke and Ried, as most has comment above, they just fit together in all ways and if Noah has to live his dream out and make movies, he has to leave to California or maybe New York. Luke has his company/trustfond to take care of in Oakdale I can’t se how they will manage to stay together.
Ried has also commited him self to stay in Oakdale forever if he want to stay number one in his field and that’s perfect for Luke.

Luke is hopelessly loyal and of course he loves Noah, but no longer the way you would a lover. I think Luke is at a point of no return with Reid. He just has to see where this can go and they should have that chance. Noah has had his run of it and everything he’ll do now is a little too late. Luke and Reid endgame!

i just love reid!
he’s so perfect and so cute when he talks to luke.. (well.. a bit.. behind the “i’m the best, you’re nothing”-talk :p)
i want luke and reid to be together…

i know luke did the same thing but.. i don’t like noah anymore..

This week Reid managed a coup. Bob played into his hands giving Luke the news about an ultamatum he issued Reid. Now Luke storms off feeling he is second best in Reid’s life–much like the case when Luke chose Noah over Reid only mere weeks ago. Finally they can face each other on a more even level. Don’t expect Reid to stay away from Luke two months though, he can barely stand to be away from him for two days having developed a dull ache with Luke’s name on it. Great writing, terrific acting!

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
