Emily Knocks Barbara Out on ATWT!



On Monday's thoroughly entertaining and frequently hilarious episode of As the World Turns, nothing was funnier than the sniping between Emily (Kelly Menighan Hensley, having palpable fun) and Barbara (the absolutely divine Colleen Zenk Pinter) as the latter tried to get Paul (an actually enjoyable Roger Howarth) locked up in what would turn out to be a deserted insane asylum.

That strange and illogical plot point aside, Emily finally got her revenge on Babs by knocking her out with a wine bottle! As viewers with memories sharper than mine will recall, Barbara knocked out Emily with a rolling pin several years ago! It looks like Emily finally gave Barbara that boom boom pow!

OMG.....I'd hoped that someone would post about today's HILARIOUS episode of ATWT....When Emily got out of the car with the wine bottle I thought "That crazy bitch is NOT going to knock her out"....then BAM....I can't remember the last time ATWT made me laugh so hard...especially more than once....When Emily screamed "Bring it on Babs"...I just about died.....The Lily/Damien stuff was steamy hot as well...... I really hope ATWT can keep this up......

Somehow, some way, ATWT's execs seem to have gotten the message that the show was a mess and are turning things around fast and furiously. I hope the show is able to build on this early promise and grow back to its former glories (and ratings!!!).

Losing GL was painful enough. Losing ATWT would be devastating to many.

Emily:You know, I'm afraid of mental hospitals.
Barbara: What, because you're afraid they won't let you out?
Emily: My family only does rehab, we leave the crazy to you.

J. Bernard/Jamey,

Have you heard if any GL people will move to ATWT?

Joss,

I learn the news like any other fan and have heard nothing concrete yet other than what's been reported here.

Has anyone thought about this......now that Henry is James' son, that makes Henry and Paul.....DRUMROLL PLEASE....Brothers!!!! How awesome is that going to be?!? I'm already looking forward to seeing them in scenes together. And though I don't think it will happen, here's hoping that Paul doesn't get his memory back. Or if he does, at least let him ditch the doom-and-gloom attitude. Amnesiac/sane/drunk Paul is a freakin' hoot! I'd tune in to watch him. He'll be the anti-Jason Morgan on GH.

What the heck has happened to suddenly energize the writing? Fear of unemployment? Witty lines. Cool Paul.

I have to say I rolled my eyes BIG TIME when Paul woke up with amnesia, but RH has been hilarious as nuPaul. Throwing Em back into his orbit -- brilliant. KMH and RH are smokin. Throw in CPZ and it's almost too good to be true. I also spit out my drink when Emily said the "rehab" line. Awesome. It's time to "Save the WORLD".

Did ATWT have some good writers locked away in the Snyder barn or something? Why are they just letting them out now that the show is hanging on by a thread? Imagine if there had been decent writing for the last couple of years--maybe the ratings would be in the 2's.

I have watched this show since right before Doug Marland took over (and even some as a child). In the last couple years I have quit watching for a couple months at a time for various reasons:

The royal screw up of the returns of Scott Bryce and Cady MacClain--vortex of suck. I couldn't believe that SB only had about 2 scenes with Liz Hubbard--and the rest were with Meg. What a fiasco! And the wimpy Rosanns--nuff said

When Lucinda had to ask Paul for permission to buy the Snyder farm. That really ticked me off. Why should the great Lucinda have to ask that moron Paul for permission to do anything. Fans love Lucinda as the kick-ass business woman.

That they didn't sign Eric William Morris. He had great chemistry with Allison and was a good actor--but they sent him on his way. I know they brought him back later--but for what? Allison/Casey just don't work romantically.

A few months ago--I just couldn't take Meg anymore. Worst character ever on this show. It sounds harsh--but Marie Wilson is not a good actress. She sucks the energy out of every scene. Why TPTB are so enamored of her is beyond me. So many really good actors on this show--I don't get it. I know the writing for Meg pretty lousy--but a good actor could be doing something with it. She doesn't. (Roger H and KMH always have had great chemistry)

J Bernard--I took your advice on your last post and started to catch up with the show on the computer. It is a lot better. I am glad you are writing about it. I have been very frustated--but don't want to see the show go off the air. I am more attached to this soap than any other.

PS I love your insightful thoughts on the podcasts!!
