The Heritage of Hope Returns to SON


Recommended Posts

  • Members

On January 7, 2008 the Heritage of Hope premiered on mySON TV and subsequently ended its run a few months after. The fan fiction was based off of the now defunct NBC soap opera "THE DOCTORS" and centered around the lives of its leading characters, Matt, Maggie, Steve, Carolee, and Althea. Now after a two year absence from SON, the fan fiction returns to the board just in time to coincide with the posting of its 100th episode. Leading up to the relaunch this fall, monthly summaries covering January to April 1983 will be posted here in the SON blog section, as a way to catch up many of those who missed out on all the action of the series.

So be sure to catch the re-launch of the series, and for those who aren't familiar with the fan fiction, be sure to catch the posting of the monthly series leading up to the 100th episode!

    • Yes, unfortunately, along with the neurofibromatosis storyline (which I liked), Pam became increasingly shrill and so did Victoria Principal. The writing was not stellar for the character of Pam and the acting followed suit, especially in Seasons 4 and early 5. Miraculously, halfway through Season 5, with that great twist of Pam assuming Christopher was for her, something just fell into place. Principal 'woke up', so to speak, and started to become better and better. With the significant improvement of writing for Pam in Season 6 came a calmer but stronger Pam. By Season 7, Principal was a solid draw, turning in consistently stellar, intriguing performances. She had relaxed. She was magnetic. Season 8 was a highlight. She carried Season 9. It's only when she was thrown back into the Ewing household that it somehow diminished but then she left. I haven't seen anything quite like it before. In my mind, it was a reaction to her material - either she didn't like it or did, and it showed.
    • While I agree the writing for Craig was atrocious, I think the bigger problem was casting Hunt Block in the role. Block was a one-trick pony, really incapable of conveying anything other than an all-consuming self-interest. Block was given plenty of material to use as emmy bait, and only netted one nomination at a period in time when ATWT was awash in them. He was good at portraying a smug belief in his innate superiority, but not the ability to care about anyone else. And it's not like Craig wasn't given those moments, Block either couldn't, or didn't chose to play them.  Meanwhile, Scott Bryce was able to give Craig a conscience in spite of even more atrocious writing.
