So Todd's joined the Tea cheer squad. No big surprise with this writer.

He called her a pain in the ass

I like Molly and TJ. That's about all I have to say.

I do not like him at all. He is smarmy as hell, say whatever you want to about Ford but he was good looking enough to tolerate his douche like behavior. This guy has no charisma what so ever and is so repelling that I find all of his scenes annoying especially with that new brat calling herself Kristina. If anything he is making me like Starr and Micheal and making me root for their romance just because I can't stand him. I guess Cartini succeeded he found a way to make Micheal and Starr likable by putting forth two of the most repulsing characters on every day in the forms of NuBrat!Kristina and Rapebaby!Trey rolleyes.gif

For what it's worth I've been liking the show more and more. It's interesting again and for the most part I like Kate, Micheal/Starr, Heather, Maxie/Patrick, Johnny, Sam/Todd and the like. The only parts I hate about the show are the things related to the mob stuff. It's as clear as day that Sonny and Jason are bringing down this show every single time they appear on screen.

It's been more watchable for me the past few weeks, except as R Sinclair said, I seem to completely forget it an hour later. But the actual episodes don't seem to drag as much as they were a few weeks back--that said R/C's OLTL would have brief spurts of not only being watchable but actually pretty good and then it would go back to completely coasting, so...

I guess it's all relative. I hated Ford oh so much, and frankly didn't find his face (or his waxed body really) attractive at ALL--he was kinda rodent-like or something--but I know that's just my personal take. If we're just being superficial, I find Trey far more good looking--but as others, like Carl, have said it's that uninteresting generic department store catalog look. He's fine, but there's nothing that appealing about him to make the character more interesting than the uninteresting way he's written.

I think you mean February.

Ha! It's too bad because, while nothing groundbreaking, the story is far more interesting than much on screen and I'd rather see Alexis deal with it all than most of what she's been doing. But R/C seem especially poor at focusing on more interesting stories. Even the "we're obsessed over a man" Tracy/Anna stuff would be more watchable IMHO if they teamed up.

    • John Conboy interview Four-time Emmy winner John Conboy was named Executive Producer of Guiding Light in December of 2002. Previously, he produced Love is a Many Splendored Thing, The Young and the Restless and Santa Barbara, as well as created the Washington D.C.-based Capitol. Six months into his latest stint, Mr. Conboy sat down with SoapCity for his first ever exclusive chat outlining this award-winning visionary's plans for daytime's longest running drama. SoapCityAlina: After all that you've achieved in your career -- you are widely credited with changing the entire look of daytime drama -- the logical, first question is: Why GL? Why now? John Conboy: I watched the show for about five months, and the cast blew me away. (New head writer) Ellen Weston and I talked back and forth for a long time before I made the decision (to take the job). It was a fairly large decision for me to make because I live in California now. But when I got here, I was so astonished by the welcome that I got that I know I made the right choice. I love it. This was a lovely chance for me to, one, get back to New York, two, get back to CBS and three, work with Procter & Gamble for the first time. SCA: Fans seem to know what a writer does, what a director does, what a set designer does. But I think a lot of them wonder: what exactly does a producer do? What does it mean, your title, Executive Producer? JC: It means very little, as long as everybody else is doing what he or she needs to be doing. I'm their tour guide. I'm their leader. One of my jobs is to keep people working with me five days a week, 52 weeks a year and to keep them wanting to do it. SCA: I mentioned your changing the look of daytime. Y&R was the first show to feature a more youthful cast, not to mention brighter lighting, hipper clothes, flashier sets. Everything that we take for granted on daytime now, you pioneered. Do you have a vision for GL as well? JC: I don't think that my vision has changed. I do think that my taste has changed over the years, as far as coming into the 21st century and by my exposure to other things. But, at the end of the day, no matter how sharp you get the show to look, you're still talking about a love story. If you watch it carefully, most of what our people do on my shows, they do because they love someone. I'm not doing anything different on Guiding Light than I've done before. This is the style that I choose to do, and so I did come in and say (technically), "Let's do this." I have a lighting designer who is a genius. I have directors who were just waiting to get some stuff to do. And I have a brilliant cast. I said to all of them, "I am only as good as you are, so don't screw it up." I would love to do a movie a day on this show. I would love to have enough money to do the kind of production that I want on the show. Actually, because of the skill of the people we have on the show now, I'm very happy with the look of the show. I would love to go out to Niagara Falls, or sail to Europe, but if you tell a really good story, you could do it in my office. SCA: You said that you watched GL for five months before deciding to take the job. What did you see on-screen that you knew you needed to change as soon as you got here? JC: I think a lot of people who were on the scene needed stories, which they didn't have. That was my major concern. Now they've got them; they've got wonderful stories. The direction we are going in, everybody is going to be involved in one of the big stories coming up. Hopefully, we are going to involve all the adults and all of the younger people in the same story. I think it is important that you put your core characters with the younger people, so that they intermingle and work together. The baseball story that I'm doing with Shayne, for instance, is a story that so many mothers and fathers go through. I think it is going well. We're really going to play baseball and have some fun with it. And I think the Reva story is going to be huge. We have a big surprise on that story coming up. I'm also introducing another young character, a Latino boy. I'm looking forward to that introduction. And we are very excited about Bradley Cole being back. I think he's a terrific actor. He was enormously popular, we did a lot of research on him, and so we created another character that's working wonderfully on the show. SCA: How important is fan input to you? JC: Thank God we've got fans that have watched the show for a long time. There is an enormous history here, and the fans are the first ones who will tell us if we've got it right. Lots of fans write two or four times a week. One particular person will write several times, and they are very articulate. They know the show. They tell me what they like and they tell me what they don't like. Of course, I try not to give them what they like! SCA: That's certainly a very provocative statement! What does it mean? JC: It means that if you want it, and if I give it to you, then that story is over. When I was doing Y&R, we could keep stories going for years. Of course, the audience now is a different audience. We used to say it was the MTV audience. Now, God knows what kind of audience it is! But whatever it is, we need to keep them alive, bright and entertained. I want our audience to watch us five days a week. I want them to enjoy watching our stories as much we enjoy telling them!
