Y&R's Justin Hartley and Eric Braeden Named Power Performances Of The Week!

Courtesy/CBS

We have already extolled upon The Young and the Restless how riveting the Adam reveal and fallout was during this past week of episodes.  Everyone in the cast stepped up to the plate, hit home runs, and brought their A-game.  But when we broke it down, it was the work of two men, who each delivered in pivotal moments in the story that were so highly-anticipated that anyhing less then spot-on performances could have been a let down to the audience.

First, major kudos goes to Justin Hartley (Adam) who carried the week as the epicenter of this firestorm.  As Adam dodged and faced-off with his foes, families, and the love of his life, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), after he has been outed for runnnig around Genoa City as Gabriel Bingham for a year,  Hartley played every beat in every scene just right.  The actor showed the complexities of the black sheep of the Newman clan through Adam’s inner turmoil, hurt, anger, guilt, revenge, and even love.  And, in the middle of the entire town coming down upon him for his heinous deception, and attempt to destroy his father’s business empire, still Adam did one right thing  … delivered Sage’s (Kelly Sullivan) baby!  Hartley’s performances are made so real, that in even in the most unrealistic of circumstances, you can simply just watch what is going on in his eyes, and believe it all.  Adam was confronted by so many people: an irate Billy (Burgess Jenkins), Victor (Eric Braedem), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Sage, Chelsea, and the list goes on.  In every turn and confrontation, Hartley did not disappoint.

Next, we come to the titan of Y&R, Eric Braeden.  If there was any week to check out what Victor Newman is up to these days it was during the Adam reveal.  This powerful man learns that his son, Adam is alive and has been parading around town with a new face for a year!  Victor also learns Adam was behind the Paragon Project to take him down along Ian Ward (Ray Wise).  He also learns Jack (Peter Bergman) knew about Adam being alive all along.  Braeden’s delivery in all of the scenes was masterful: when he we sees Adam for the first time while Billy is beating him up, or confronting him at the GCAC bar, or going to the Underground in despair and meeting up with Nick, or going toe-to-toe with Adam after he is arrested.  These scenes were Braeden at his best.

However, nothing topped the scene on Friday’s episode where Victor meets his new little grandson, “Christian”, who was born premature and is struggling for his life in the NICU.   Alone, Victor goes to visit the littlest Newman and implores him to fight.  With tears welling up in his eyes, viewers see the caring and gentle side of Victor Newman – the man who loves his family and its legacy.   And of course, how apropos to name Victor’s grandson “Christian”.  After all, it was Victor’s real first name!  Can you imagine what will happen down the line if it’s revealed that Christian’s father is really Adam, not Nick?

So with all that said, On-Air On-Soaps names this week’s Power Performances of the Week to Y&R’s Justin Hartley and Eric Braeden.  Watch  Hartley and Braeden in two clips from the week below.  Then let us know, what did you think of Justin and Eric’s work?  Do you agree with our picks?  Let us know in the comment section below.

Watching Justin go through every emotion possible was mesmerizing. I know we have had some terrific actors over the years but he stands in front of them all imo. You mentioned his eyes Michael and those are what I was drawn to. I could not take my eyes off him. It was a week of Emmy performances for him. He has become THE Adam Newman in my books.

Patrick
Patrick

what a terrific testament to Justin Hartley… and … YES… without doubt… the actor.. who is frontburner for a reason….

he is the quintissential… NEWMAN

the only Newman… with fire… with blood flow… pulsating… power… intrigue… and an energy unlike all the rest of the characters who portray Newman…. (OK… I love Amelia Heinle… and she’s relegated to just that… the daughter)… I’ve always said… show a bond with these two ACTORS…. as brother and sister…. and power these two… POWER, THIS FAMILIAL two some.. and takeover !

backburner Victor, Nikki, and Nick… dullard

i’d cheer this brother and sister team onward and upwards

seriously? Y&R has to feature Newman…. with whats left of the Abbott… and.. whats left of Chancellor

capitalize on Justin Hartly and Amelia Heinle

Cheers to Adam !

soapbox… both actors…. Michael Muhney – AND – Justin Hartley

command performance(s)

I couldn’t agree with you more. Justin Hartley is just amazing to watch. When he is on screen you can hardly take your eyes off him.

I am mesmerized by Justin Hartley. I never know what Adam is going to do next. Great performance last week. Victor and yo had m believing you were father/son!!!

Nikki
Nikki

My gosh Shelia I agree with you. I was glued to the T.V. set. Justin wears his emotions in his eyes while acting. Each week with him I feel like it was better than last week. My gosh he can’t be any better than perfect and that’s what he is.I liked Victor’s acting when he met his grandson but I wish he would soften-up a bit with Adam as well as Jack. This tough exterior to say is because he grew up in an orphanage is sheer nonsense. A lot of kids grow up worse than that and are kinder than him. He actually only stayed their awhile when he ran away so that said Victor lighten up.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree from here to forever. Eric and Justin outdid themselves; that has already been said. I make one BIG adjustment; that is, Justin left Eric in the dust, in my opinion. Perhaps, it’s because Victor performed as expected….been there done that. But, Adam? WOW!!!! His emotionless face alone needed not express one word. His fixed stare was enough to decimate every other character’s execution. His stony countenance is just a hint of what truly inhabits within Victor Newman II…..Victor I, reincarnate.

Timmm
Timmm

Well, Eric has been there and done that for years BUT my Cee squared, you have to tip your hat to “The Mustache” for drawling a tear as he encouraged Christian Andrew to fight like a Newman, while fighting for his life in Neonatal.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, Timmm. Indubitably. I was restricting my comment to the Victor-Adam face-off, when Victor paid his son a visit at the GCPD.
NICU visits, in general, are very disturbing to me. For an entire year, it seemed that my husband and I “lived” in NICU (among many other members of our family). But, yes. Eric’s performance was stellar. Very credible…kudos.

LARRY RANSBOTTOM

BOTH WERE GREAT, VICTOR WAS AT HIS BEST IN SCENE WITH BABY. LOVE THIS SHOW.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Speaking of neonates, Timmm. It seems that Chloe has had a child. We just found out from Billy ( speaking to Victoria) that Chloe had propositioned her. Did he sleep with her to to give her another baby? Interesting. Did she also come back for more?

Patrick
Patrick

“… Adam? WOW!!!! His emotionless face alone needed not express one word. His fixed stare was enough to decimate every other character’s execution ”

WOW

LOL

just WOW….

YES! YES! YES!

well said… and “yes”… this is coming from so much want for a character to elevate from the lowly deliverance and staid writing/acting of the grandstanding forever and a day… Newman (s) Victor, Nikki, Nick… and with a lesser degree… my beloved Victoria

“Adam” carries… for a reason (s)

the best acting happening , now… in Genoa City

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, Patrick. Coming from you, means a lot.

Patrick
Patrick

I don’t know who it was… a post-er; stated

that Adam is truly the Victor incarnate… hence all the love/hate animosity and … will ultimately… one fine day… be revealed.. that Victor’ true love child…

is Adam

CeeCee
CeeCee

That would be I, also, Patrick. I believe that. But, is Adam Victor’s love child? I thought Victor and Hope were married? I must not remember it. I guess I was too young at that time.
But, yes. Adam will carry on and be the IT guy once Victor is gone. If the soap lasts, that is.

Patrick
Patrick

Hi Ceec’

yeah, I know… that Hope and Victor were married

I loved your post… that Hope’ blindness.. was not lessening her … geez! power as a woman…. and love for her child

when stuff finally surfaces… on our love for this genre

and emoting over ALL the REEL is excitable

I tear up

Timmm
Timmm

She stole Billy’s sperm from the sperm bank when she was leaving GC! BUT, and you know this is soap opera 101, she also slept with Kevin! Whose the daddy?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Sounds to be getting pretty delicious, Timmm. I hope there is a devious and compelling storyline to be had with this one. Just have the baby be healthy and born in due time. I don’t mind the “Who’s the Daddy” so much, as long as there is no stolen baby, no sick baby, no dead baby, and no miscarriage.

Timmm
Timmm

Delicious indeed! Chloe is a welcomed back character! She can stir up trouble with Billy, Victoria, Kevin and Mariah. I wish the actress would have been a Robin recast over at GH but thats for another conversation!

CeeCee

What you said, Timmm….to the letter.

Months ago, mentioned on Twitter to Justin how he is so clever and adept at subtle facial changes, even small twitches of his eyes and mouth. to create these deep emotions which surface not in words or body posture but in just the ‘look’ of the character he has so cleverly developed these months. This past week, with even tearful glances of not only dislike, anger for his dad, but hidden deep down a sad lost love emotion too, so very clever and multi-layered approach to dramatic verbal exchanges.

Do think he may well win the Daytime Emmy this next year for either Lead or Supporting Actor.

He should be very delighted as the character grows and grows with his skillful interpretations.

Eric Braeden as always was his truly brilliant characterization of Victor who has depths of both hostility, misplaced as it may seem, but also genuine love for his family, even though his actions are so often questionable.

One of the best weeks of YR in years due to the teamwork of all the cast and not forgetting the crew too.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Perfect descriptive synopsis of Justin’s acting, seemingly effortless, but verbalizing so much. My hats off to you, Wendy, for writing such a fitting approbation, singing Justin’s praises.
I agree, Justin does deserve the Emmy ….his counterpart? Kassie D.

CeeCee
CeeCee

The mystery woman in the platinum-blond wig must be Chloe? Right?

Patrick

OK… you just made me tear up; on your first paragraph alone

“…He should be very delighted as the character grows and grows with his skillful interpretations ”

yeah, tearful journey ahead

for both this manchild… this exiled Newman… someone’s son… his walk … and path

Justin Hartly is firing

Wendy - Vancouver

Did you actually finish your last sentence? Seems there may have been more to the thought? Just wondering.

Justin Hartly is slaying me… with his sex appeal

imagine if: Billy Miller was given that opportunity…

firing on all cylinder

Timmm

This is why sometimes there is a tie when handing out Emmy’s. Eric and Justin knocked it out of the park! I loved Michael Muhney and always saw him as the future Victor of the show and still do BUT Justin walked in to a firestorm taking on this role and has done magnificent! Unfortunately for Y&R viewers, Justin’s talents will take him away from daytime and into primetime soon. Thats good for him because he is so talented. Eric is Eric, a legend. He still has it when he wants it! He came to life this past week and I bet he enjoyed every bit of the challenge of acting and reacting to his son being alive and his grandson fighting to stay alive. Cannot wait for whats next!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Wasn’t he in Primetime, already? I think you are right, Timmm. His acting is just too delicious, too valuable for Daytime. Someone will come along and swoop him up once more.

Rose

Cee Cee…liked Justin okay in Revenge, but if you will forgive me as a more well travelled girl, I really, really liked him as Oliver Queen, Green Arrow in Smallville.

Timmm
Timmm

Yes CeeCee, he has primetime experience and it is rumored that he is in the running to play the lead in CBS’s reboot of the 80’s hit “MacGyver.” He would be great in it!

CeeCee

@Rose.
Hi, Rose.
I loved him in SMALLVILLE, as well. Other than PASSIONS, I only know him from SMALLVILLE; but, that was enough for me to fall for him.

Timmm

“Dont bring me Down” is my second favorite from ELO! Okay, you know I like you a lot so I hope I get this right. If Victor and Sonny were trick or treating at my house I would put a bottle of scotch in Victor’s bag and a rat in Sonny’s! Hows that? No, I think Eric will die on the set of Y&R. He is very happy there, runs the place and he is one of these people who just doesnt have many hobbies so I think working keeps him sharp AND fulfilled. Whenever he is carted away, I always thought Michael Muhney had the “Victor” effect on the towns people. I dont know if Justin is cruel enough! Could they recast Victor if he died? I would say yes! It would be next to impossible but look at the hole Jeanne Cooper’s death left on the show. TCB CeeCee!

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Timmm.
Hey, Timmm. I would think a good actor could assume any role…..cruel or otherwise. Eric can assume any facade….the cruelest of the cruel. But, from what I understand, in real life, he’s a teddy bear, especially with his grand children.
Justin, I feel, has the same talent, only a little more raw. His acting skills are untouchable….so lofty. He can portray anyone or anything to which he sets his mind.
I do agree with you, though. Eric will never leave. He is a healthy, energetic guy and as you so well describe his personality…….Y&R is his life ( outside of family) he probably would die if he ever stopped being a part of it.

davlestev1
davlestev1

You are so right tim3m see what I did there based on your above response. .JH is already a part of the prime time landscape and will get that call. .let’s just hope Y&R and JH are prepared to SHARE the wealth and not abandon this character once again

davlestev1
davlestev1

Heck they let KOOKOO ROO do Diagnosis Murder. .lol

Timmm
Timmm

Love the tim3! I thought it was impossible to replace Michael Muhney. They did it! To do it again would be really tough and its asking a lot from the fans to accept yet ANOTHER recast! However, since it is a CBS show, maybe Justin could do both? [MacGyver and Y&R]

CeeCee
CeeCee

And, she was great in DIAGNOSIS MURDER……watched every episode.

Eric and Justin deserve an award. They were so good this week. I actually felt some compassion for Adam. Victor and the scene with the new grandchild tugged at my heartstrings. It was moving. I wish the writers would soften up the Adam and Victor characters for a little while. Let love back in YR. I really miss it.

Sanfra Jones
Sanfra Jones

Eric Braeden completely knocked it out of the park with his scene talking to new grandson, Christian. His face looked so realistically pained and when his tears dropped, my heart stopped and my own tears flowed. Had to remind myself, “it’s only a soap, it’s only a soap”! Eric Braeden stands head and shoulders over Justin Hartleys recent performances. Justin was great, but, EB is the superior master of the art of acting. I may be a little biased because I love Michael Mulhey as Adam and want to see his return to Y&R.

Patrick
Patrick

“great” post… now… I simply have to watch this on youtube…

this is just another example of great writing… and a burgeoning craft of writing to showcase this estranged father/son… with grandchild

tears… why do they not capitalize on this… because it’s hook line and fraught with all the elements … essential

draw this out!

it was all their with Michael Muhney… and Now… my hats off to Justin Hartley!

anyway… back to…. ( this is just another example) ie: Sonny… on GH with Avery
stunning to watch the chemistry and bonding happening… LOL…. the one let I give the character of Sonny…. he’s magical with Avery…

and now… I’m certain Victor is; with his “Nufound grandson”

multi-layering and molding this estranged father/son… plus … carrying on the NEWMAN… will he or won’t he accept his grandson

BIG stuff

argh! writers ! give me Justin and Amelia “together”

and familial together… and let the end justify the means

Adam ! cajones! there is so much more going on than waiting for the love and acceptance of your sons’ mother… Chelsea

Justin did a brilliant job this week, he hit the nail on the head with his acting skills especially with his eyes, I just love every thing he does and what he propels to do in the future.

All this praise heaped on both JH and EB by Mr. Fairman and the commenters here is so very well deserved. Bravo to both actors and to JFP, Chuck Pratt, and his writing crew for giving us a fantastic payoff to a long story with episodes of fallout to come.

Judy Powers

I agree with all the above comments about the superb acting this past week by Eric Braeden and Justin Hartley. However I feel that, while Justin’s acting was excellent and demonstrated a lot of emotion it was STILL Eric that gave the best Emmy-worthy performance. I hope he stays as Victor Newman forever!

su0000

Michael Muhney is still #1 and the true Adam..
and- once again there are rumors of Michael Muhney coming to GH..
I really hope it is not a rumor!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I respectfully disagree. Considering the fact that Eric has been doing this for decades; posturing comes much easier for him. He is well versed with the Y&R stage and its cast. Justin, on the other hand, is earning every applause directed his way from an absolute innate talent. If he is able to act so flawlessly when his characterization of Adam is still in its infancy….imagine what he will do in just a couple of years.

su0000

I do not see Justin being with Y&R for years..
He will get a great primetime offer and then bye bye ..

@su.
Lol, susu….maybe, maybe not. I hope Justin stays…but you are probably right. The good ones always leave.

Bessie Calhoun

I agree with much of what has been said about Adam And Victor.Now….. let’s stop hating Adam for everything that goes wrong in town, like Delia’s death. What about Billy’s part? He is just as guilty as Adam. None of this would have happened if Billy did not leave a child alone in a car with a dog. Come on writers put the blame were it belong. On Billy!!! Sure Adam should have come forward when realized he hit the child, but enough is enough. Let Adam and Chelsea have some happiness., and please whatever you do don’t let Sage’s baby be Adams

Rose
Rose

There have been many comments about Adam not falling too far from the Victor tree. I am a relative newbi to Y&R ever since ABC handed me over to them and their ratings after they ended OLTL and AMC. But what has really touched me is that throughout all Justin/Adam’s acting out, and maybe sub-consciously trying to emulate Victor in the only way he has seen growing up, is that you see his little boy eyes wanting love, acceptance and approval from his dad. Justin has done a great job.

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

Rose, I am in the same boat as you. I started watching Y&R the Monday after One Life to Live’s finally TV broadcast. Justin Hartley is doing an amazing job. His scenes with Chelsea and Victor were heartbreaking.

I also really enjoyed the very powerful confrontation between Jack, Phyllis and Chelsea when they were alone in Victor’s office after Adam’s identity was revealed. Peter Bergman and Melissa Claire Egan (AMC alumni) did great work with Gina Tognoni (OLTL alumna).

Ruby

Justin Hartley has done a superb job on the Y&R. This week he has shown so much emotion in his character and he had so much emotion in his eyes and face. When i was watching him this week i really felt the sorrow he had for all the lies he had told. (especially to Chelsea and knowing he may lose his son Conner) Justin is an amazing and talanted actor. Justin Hartley deserves an award for his Brilliant acting on the Y&R. Adam and Chelsea are my favorites.

mary

I TOTALY AGREE WITH YOU , JUSTIN HARTLY IS AMAZING. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED HIM, GREAT ACTOR SO REAL ,HIS EYES CAN BREAK YOUR HEART, WHEN HE’S HURTING. I HOPE THEY HAVE SOMEONE ELSE BE FOUND AS THE ONE THAT RAN DELIA DOWN, WE ALL KNOW ADAM DID NOT DO IT ANYWAY.VICTOR WAS GOOD LAST WEEK ALSO, BUT I LOVE ADAM, I WANTED HIM AND CHELSIE TO BE HAPPY. I HOPE JUSTIN WINS AN AWARD, HE SO DESERVES IT.

The look on his face ,eyes this past week I sat here and cried for him.I always loved Justin even when he was on Passions,I hope he sticks around for a long time,Great job Justin I will be watching you for a long time.You certainly deserve some kind of award.You are the best..

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Carol.
I do like them both, but I have a weakness for Justin. The main difference between the two, I think, is subtle, yet not so subtle. I am at a loss for words…..to me, Justin’s/Adam’s face is an open book. I can read it, albeit he does hide his feelings well from those who are not attuned to his facial expressions. And, his EYES. Oh, man, his eyes tell the story. They are seductive; reeling in and captivating the audience. I was just blown away when he and Victor had their not-so-little ‘chat’. Adam’s stony countenance, yet, so expressive (in which I failed to see in Muhney), was incredibly and authentically Victor’s. I could almost touch the intangible…..so much emotion crossing that chiseled face.
And, of course, he is hot. Yes, there are much better looking men, such as Joshua and Scott, but Justin is simply sexy. He exudes that manliness which eludes even Adonis-like men…….oh, those biceps!!!!!!…..that back with the tight-fitting top!!!!! Swoon!!!!
However, although good looks may help propel an actor’s career in the right direction, his acting must supersede his looks. Well, Justin is doing just that. His skill knocks me over with a feather. He’s young, but if he stays with the Y&R cast, Victor may have just met his match. Ay Caramba!!

carol
carol

All I have to say is Justin is yummy lol,no it is so true,but him being a great actor also helps,I didn’t start watching the Young and the Restless until I saw him on it so I dont know much about the old Adam or who that woman was he was suppose to have killed, However one look at him and i just melt. I maybe old but I love what i see..

CeeCee
CeeCee

@carol.
We are never too old to appreciate beauty. I liken it to admiring a work of art. …..Michelangelo’s David? LOL
The person he supposedly ran over, was Billy’s and Chloe’s little six-year old daughter. But, the crux of the matter is, carol….none of us believes he did it; that someone else was on the scene. I think all this will come out during the trial…..can’t wait.
Keep watching, ….you won’t regret it…lol…later.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, Carol. By the way….I just had a feeling since yesterday that the mystery woman was Chloe, and that she was going to pull a gun on Adam. It’s okay, no need to applaud. Kidding. But, Carol, I can’t be the only one who thought the same thing. Later.

carol

Okay thanks,I am glad she was stopped from shooting Adam, if I do miss any of it I can always watch it here at 7 on pop.I cannot stand Billy he makes me want to barf lol Have a good night,

@carol.
Hi, carol.
I know what you mean about Burgess/Billy. And, it isn’t because of Billy Miller, as some fans seem to think. I don’t have a problem with recasts. I get used to him/her after a while. Gina is not Michelle, but I have accepted her, I have accepted NuAdam. I was even happy when David Tom came back as the original Billy. But I just cannot get used to Burgess. There is something very detached about him….he just does not touch me, stir me, moves me. He is not convincing either as an Abbot or as Delia!’s Daddy. ‘Nite., my friend.

Deborah

I was like everyone else couldn’t imagine another adam..definately justin surpasses the roll…victor…alwas loved him…both gave a stellar performance this week and always

boes

Power performance?? Seriously? Braeden can barely remember his lines and mumbles them no matter the scene. Not only can he do this in his sleep, he apparently does.
And the other guy, the one playing Adam, repeats every line twice as if he’s possessed by the bad talent of La Stafford.

Power performance? Oh please.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Lol, boes. You’re such a party pooper. Seriously

CeeCee
CeeCee

Sorry…hit submit accidentally…well, the baby did.
As I was saying…seriously speaking, I agree about victor’s mumbling. But, it is that frigid look of his which can freeze the Atlantic, that gets me each time. I don’t even pay attention to much of what he says. I do not like Victor….but, his presence is impressive especially when he looks down on people as he would a bug just before stomping on it.
I do appreciate the fact that Victor is showing just a hint of tenderness toward Adam….long time coming.
However, I disagree about Adam. In my opinion, his performance could not have been better. When my entire being is enraptured by a scene; when my attention is captured, listening, watching with bated breath….well, the actor achieved what he intended.
We are all entitled to read a performance in our own way.

I also love Justin Hartley as Adam which surprises me since I loved MM as Adam. I still think I prefer MM for his intensity but JH is a credible recast.
I can’t stand Victor or his self righteous hyprocrisy. I was touched for a millisecond during his scene with Christian but then realized he will just ruin this boy’s life like he does everyone he comes in contact with. I absolutely hate that he never has to pay for any of his heinous actions.
I am also hating how everyone comes down so cruelly on Adam for Delia’s death. It was an accident and I am surprised that Adam rarely ever mentions that it was an accident. I guess his guilt prevents him from defending himself.
It was also NOT a hit and run since he did not realize he hit anything. Of course he pleaded Not Guilty. What court in the world would throw him in jail for years for an accident?! He was not under the influence, nor driving recklessly or speeding, nor did he hit-and-run so what could he be convicted of?
I can imagine him going to jail for a few months for not coming forward when he realized he hit something a couple of days later. Obstruction of justice maybe? But not vehicular homicide when it was an accident.

carol

oh my goodness that scene when Justin was in bed with that woman I was thinking some woman have all the luck,I would love to have taken her place,he gave such a powerful performance again today,Justin deserves the best actor award in my book,No how about some scenes without his pants LOl well,

Rose Finney

Love Justin Hartley as Adam. Best recast Y&R has ever done . Hartley is the best actor and best looking guy on the show.You had better hang on to himand keep Adam and Chelsea together .

Another outstanding performance today by Justin.As I watched him on the witness stand I could feel Adams pain ,I was moved by Justin again.I guess I started watching this show Justin time ,,,

carol
carol

Justin does it again another outstanding job of acting today When Adam said he couldn’t feelihis legs well the first thing that came to my mind was I will help you feel one of them,,I know but put it pays to have a sense of humor,I wish I was the actress who was doing those scenes with him,My goodness is he ever gorgeous,

carol

When I saw Justin wearing that fire mans outfit what a sexy man he is.I only wish they would sets there sites lower if you know what I mean,I certainly wouldn’t mind being rescued by Justin- Adam He certainly can not only act but he made this lady fo 62 hot.Hey I aint dead He could probably wear a trash bag and look good,I am hoping because of his help with rescuing his son that the cops have a chance of heart and don’t put him away,I don’t believe for one second he killed that little girl .and I have been watching the show just a little over a year now.So I don’t know really much about Adam and the rest of the characters.but from what i hav e seen and read he has changed. Great work Justin,

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
