Unless Brad Bell can come up with some compelling story lines and stop playing the overused triangle of Liam/Steffy/Wyatt and Brooke/Ridge/Caroline or Brooke/Katie/Bill or Brooke/Eric/whomever, you get the drift, it doesn’t matter who directs the show…..come on, be real, no one watches the show to see how it’s directed….it’s watched to see characters we love/hate in stories that keep us coming back day after day…why this even made news is baffling to me….

I HATE THIS CURRENT STORY LINE! I turned off my TV recorder the day Liam was kidnapped by Quinn! Are you serious? Why would B & B allow a story line that take a brain injury patient to a crazy persons apartment and receive no medical treatment!!!???

I looked at it Friday and today only to hear that crazy Quinn now plotting to kill poor Liam who is clearly a TBI victim with possible PERMANENT cognitive deficits–memory, insight, problem solving!

I’m turning off the recorder again! This is awful! and Lying no good Ridge is still mistreating his son Thomas too!! I can’t wait for Rick to expose the secret. I hope Thomas files a lawsuit and fights for joint custody of his son! Come on Steffy isn’t that naive and easily manipulated! I hate jello belly Wyatt! Oh I’m so disgusted!!!! I hope the new director can save this show before if becomes like the other RIP!

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
