LIVEBLOGGING: Guiding Light's Four Musketeers Reunion!




Almost time for the show!

Damn the Y&R previews for next week look hot! Greg Rikaart is so gonna win another Emmy!

The B&B previews look like more of the same. Hot-Meet-Mess.

Doh! Show's on! You gotta be ready with this liveblogging business!

Oh great, Grady.

Thank God for Lizzie!

Grant Aleksander hasn't freaking aged at all. He's like a gigantic Ken Doll!

I have always loved Phillip and Lizzie's connection. Love him looking at pics in the attic!

Mindy Sue!

  She's looking at pics with Beth!

I would have liked a big intro scene, but oh well.

Keep smiling, keep shining, knowing you can always count on me!

One more hug like that and Beth and Mindy are gonna give Otalia a run for their After Ellen feature!

Justin Deas is the God-o-Acting!

I miss Coop, but damn was his death needed!

Buzz and Alan are daytime's answer to Jock Ewing and Digger Barnes!

Ron Raines is keeping it subtle. Good, very good. No mustache-twirling.

Ugh, the greasy grifter!

Just shoot him Lizzie!

Or let your dog bite him in the nads!

Hey Lizzie, I doubt the guy who ran Tammy over like she was a toddler on Days of Our Lives will sympathize with your living in fear!

Oh yippee skippy it's my favorite soap theme song EVER! :O

I read somewhere that pets are the first thing to go during a recession. Maybe IAMS isn't the best advertiser. Try soap, people have to wash their behinds!

Queen Latifah just did a voiceover for some product. It wasn't herpes cream though.

Dear God in heaven, colored balloons for bladder pill advertisements?

I'd hate to see this ad agency's spot for condoms!

One bladder commercial, now some Vagisil.

Criminal Minds spot. Or was it Numb3rs. CSI: Peapack?

Billy and Melinda Sue!

Krista Tesreau is like a jolt of fun!

Loving Beth's purple, silk blouse.

Mindy's met a LOT of right guys Billy!

Beth too!

Oh no, Daisy AND Cyrus!

That little girl was forgetting her lines AGAIN! Grr!

I want Ellen Wheeler to take a switch to Bonnie Dennison's legs!

More crazy Lizzie, but at least she's opposite the Foley I actually like.

Cyrus could be this show's biggest stud if written right.

Cyrus is an idiot. She was gonna give his brother $50 million!

The Spauldings got it like that?

They are SLUMMING in that house then!

God that snow is pretty!

Peapack is much prettier in the winter.

Anybody wanna move to Jersey?

Grady, sigh. Nice looking actor. He could eat a sandwich or three, but his story has always sucked.

YEAH Phillip, thank the Soap Gods. Irna, Bill, Doug and James are smiling down!

I have a confession. I've never liked Alan. I started watching in the early 90's when Roger Thorpe was the town villain. Subtle, psychological. Oh well, keep it toned down Ron and I might try to view you with new eyes. No more "I'll get you my pretty!"

I hate the Manwich commercial with that child with food all over its face.

So, if I am to believe advertising really matches the viewers' demos. The people who watch soaps are asthmatics who clean a lot and have bladder problems. Oh, and they eat Manwiches.

A nasty Aussie tells her he wants to screw her all night and Daisy says, "Ummm." Help me out here Bonnie! "Umm" is not acting!

Billy, you shot Roger Thorpe for banging your daughter, don't preach at Buzz about not stooping to levels!

Beth Chamberlin is gorgeous!

Michael O'Leary is blowing out his curls?

Haaaa, Rick's an a-hole talking about the pizza face girl! I love it!

Oh, could they just not have had Daisy on for this?!

I want Cyrus to FUDGE Blake! :p

Do they have canons in Peapack? If so can they shoot Bonnie Dennison out of one?

Sigh. She's pretty. Get her an ACTING COACH!

Crazy-yet-fashionably-chic Lizzie is on.

She just saw Grady's bird chest and realizes he's the socialite-napper!

Odor Eater commercial. So the people who watch soaps are asthmatic's with bladder problems who eat Manwiches and have stinky feet.

A Dulcolax commerical followed by a soup commercial...type amongst yourselves!

I need to go into media buying!

Local commercials blow.

I'm craving El Pollo Loco.

I am tempted to buy Joan Rivers' novel.

Show's back!

Lizzie is dressed like a Bratz ice skating doll.

Buzz is da shit.

Wishful Casting: Robin Mattson returns as Hope Bauer, Alan's ex-wife and falls for Buzz! Santa Barbara bitches!

Glad to see the old gang could put bygones behind them. So what if Phillip went ape shit, let's make fun of pizza face!

Super Phillip to the rescue! Save Lizzie, daddy!

Cyrus is thisclose to being irredeemable because of his sucky brother. The accent and the swagger can't keep saving him.

Awww, Cyrus loves grease head!

THANK YOU JILL LORIE HURST FOR GETTING GRANT BACK!!!!!!!!!!

This show SO needed a good, old-fashioned hero after years of sleazeballs on the front burner!

Let's hope GL's fascination with dark-haired dirty boys is OVER! Pelphrey was special. The clones, not-so-much.

Wow, there are a LOT more local, crappy commercials as the hour goes on! Why is that? I know some of y'all know and are just itching to tell me. Why are there more national ads near the top of the hour?

Liveblogging is hard!

Whatever happened to that couple who fell in love while drinking Taster's Choice? I loved them. Now that was a commercial!

Show's back! Marcy Rylan is a revolution.

2010's Outstanding Supporting Actress is on GL right now!

RIVETED BY RYLAN!

Krista Tesreau is such a doll!

Okay, Buzz is getting on my nerves.

Okay...are Buzz and Alan comic rivals who give each other heart attacks or bitter vicious rivals? Decide please.

Sigh, Daisy.

Okay, I get it. Cyrus leaving Dimbulb Daisy is the crux of his dilemma. It would be better if they had an ounce of chemistry or romance. Or if she could act. The snow is pretty though.

Such a pretty girl. ACTING COACH PEOPLE!

YEAH! Marcy and Grant!!!!

Lizzie is breaking me DOWN!

Marcy is going there! This girl is  IT! I She is the next Reese Witherspoon!

Go 'head Grant! See, pretty people CAN act!

Phillip and Lizzie are amazing.

Maybe love can save the world?

Oh wow, this is absolutely amazing! Phillip and Lizzie are making up for Daisy!

Anyone with Daddy Issues is in tears right now.

Mindy: "Who Said We Liked Phillip More?" SNORT, everyone!

Daisy has too been to Towers!

Whatever happened to Uncle Stavros?

Bonnie Dennison is better opposite Justin Deas.

Why can't she relax in scenes with the dude who plays Grady like that? Okay so he's pretty, calm down and be natural!

Lizzie just had a melt down. Now she's totally rational.

Kill him Phillip!

Kill that scum sucking son of a gun!

This was fun! I think I'll do it again Monday!

Wait...did I just hear Rapist Jeffrey was SUING REVA next week? Where is BUD????

Well, great minds think alike...!

that was about the funniest thing I have ever read. Jamey do it again!

I still have an hour before I can watch the show.

Am I the only one who don't find Grady,
aka Kane Manera, attractive?

Phillip is THE quientessential hero of daytime!

BTW Jamey please remind Jillian of how great Marcy Rylan is the next time she gives her an dishonorable mention on the performer of the week podcast.

What happened was he dumped her once he got a librarian position in Sunnydale, California. He briefly took up with a computer science teacher but unfortunately she got her neck snapped.

I wish I could have been at home watching this live with you while you were posting but I'm reading it at work, will have to watch the show later.
It's fun to read this though. What you wrote about Marcy's acting and her scenes with Phillip REALLY makes me want to watch it, even though I was going to just because of the Four Muskateers.
And I agree with you asking why Daisy and Grady have to ruin such a great show that many of us have been looking foward to.
And love the line about Uncle Stavros. They never said what happened to him, I think they always pretended like he was around somewhere.

No,you are not the only one.

I wanted to poke my eyes out when they kept going for the close up of Grady's bones.

The Four Muskateers and Lizzie/Phillip stuff is so good but they're ruining it with all this Grady stuff. Getting rid of Grady is taking way too damn long. I know they're trying to set-up a who-dunnit but the problem with that is that NOBODY CARES!!! We don't care who kills him because we just want him dead so badly. It could be over and done with in 30 seconds flat. Them wasting all this time on his exit is just alienating people who came back for Phillip, the 4Ms, and Otalia but still can't stomach all this horrid crap that made them tune out in the first place. And having McRapist sue Reva next week because he wants "that child" ripped prematurely out of "my woman", against her will if necessary, ain't gonna help either.

The vast majority of people I've read on the boards find Grady absolutely repulsive to look at, so do I. Those who find him attractive are in the distinct minority.

ITA with whoever said that Cyrus could be the show's biggest stud and he was once before they dragged him into the pits of storyline hell by tying him to Harley and then Grady. Ugh.

He was doing just fine before that. He was smart, sexy, charming, and a little bit dirty but he wasn't a sleazy wimp until Harley put him on her leash nor was he a kidnapper/murderer apologist like he is with Grady.

He got some of his mojo back when Harley FINALLY left, the departure of Grady should signal the return of Cyrus as he should be. It better anyway, MB is too valuable a commodity to keep wasting on such tripe as they have over the last fifteen months or so.

Oh jamey, please post the preview for next week on the DC! It is on Youtube.

It should be good, Phillip yelling "no one messes with my little girl!" Oh swoon

Maybe if they gave Kane a looooooong bath and cast him as Anton on AMC he could be very attractive and tolerable?

That was hysterical! I agree with everything you said-except the Cyrus thing. After watching for 30+ years, I think I actually gave up when Phillip left, and Cyrus first appeared. I just NEVER got that character. And, don't even get me started on Grady! I don't think I've ever not FF'D through one of his scenes. Can't wait till he's gone! Love Mindy being back! Beth Chamberlain is beautiful! And Thank goodness for Phillip!! Oh- and Buzz is fantastic, but he is starting to get on my nerves too. Now, if they can just move into a studio again.......

That was the funniest liveblog I have read! Please, you have to do it again Monday.

To paraphrase an old cooking saying, Marcy Rylan and Grant Aleksander, 'put their foot in it!' Their scenes were AMAZING!

I will help you start the campaign for Outstanding Supporting Actress, now! "Girl, Interrupted" Peapack style is in effect!

I loved Phillip towards the end, made me think of the Rick James sketch, "I'm Phillip Spaulding, b***h!"

Great blogging Jamey! Marcy Rylan was brilliant (again)today, especially the part where she brokedown with Phillip. I did feel bad for her though when she had to lay on that dirty garage floor and in that pretty white outfit. Coop's death, Grant returning and Justin Deas acting has completely rejuvinated this show!

Loved today, Grant and Marcy were amazing, and Mike O'Leary was cracking me up.

Is Philip going to toss Grady off the cliff? Not that I dont want him to, but can he really kill a guy and then hop back to the reunion?

Regarding the preview, yes, it looks like Jeffery is suing Reva for custody of the baby to FORCE her to deliver early. But then, we all know that Jeffrey likes to control womens bodies. Josh needs to administer a beat down of epic preportions.

It's been so great to get online and read good things about GL for a change. I haven't watched yet, but I know that I will enjoy Mindy. From the sounds of it, her return should have been handled a tad bit better, but beggars can't be choosers.

Sounds like it was a great show today. I can't wait to see the Grant and Marcy scenes.

"Oh, could they just not have had Daisy on for this?!"

**********

At least Ashlee isn't with her... the two of them together is like nails on a chalkboard.

I don't understand this blogging... who is talking?

Is it a chat or just a blog with someone talking the whole time? Dana

It was a live blog, I wrote it during the air show on Friday, with my reactions to everything as it happened.

Yay to Jay's live bloggin!
The episode was good and I am sorry this production model can stay as long as these stories keep me paying attention instead of me switching it to NBC to see Max and Chelsea in bed together.

Bringing back Robin Mattson would be a wise decision. She could easily hold her own opposite Ron Raines and an eventual love triangle between Lillian, Buzz, and Hope could be lots of fun!

The production model has come leaps and bounds from when it first started. I remember checking it out when they first started it and was horrified by the bleached out color and jerky camera shots. It didn't keep me watching GL.

I think now it doesn't detract from the storylines, which is important. I miss the more opulent sets, and I get a chuckle out of some of the more obvious gaffes (the weater at times doesn't match up, a character will walk up to someone's house and knock, and the person who lives there will walk around from the back instead of opening the door), but if it keeps the show on the air and allows them to bring back people like Grant, I'm in favor of it.

Bringing back the old production model would get this show back to a 2.0 and stay there...

I agree that they should go back to the old production model but seems this new format is what kept them on the air by saving budget money.
