As the World Turns: The Death of Dr. Reid Oliver and Endgames

Before I get to today’s stunning episode of As the World Turns, in which Dr. Reid Oliver dies and donates his heart to his professional nemesis/colleague Dr. Chris Hughes, I have a few thoughts about not only the serial's final days on the air, but also —in a broader sense—fan perceptions about what a soap's last days should be like, themes that will be carried forward as we look toward ATWT's final hours.

First, with less than two weeks to go before its final fade to black, ATWT is ending its 54 year history in perhaps better dramatic shape than almost any serial since the cancellation of NBC's Texas in 1982, a specific observation I will expand upon in a few days. Of course, there is lots to gripe and nitpick about the woulda-coulda-shoulda’s of how the show might have wrapped things up. Many of those ideas are quite good and some are downright ludicrous, but in the final turn of events, all of that stuff is moot. The last scenes were shot, the sets have been struck, and the actors all went along different paths weeks ago. READ MORE

Grins and Gripes For The End of The World

It is with heavy heart that I pen this review for my beloved As the World Turns. I still remember that autumn day nearly six years ago, when my college roommate regaled me with tales of CarJack’s (Maura West and Michael Park) magnetic pull despite Jack’s amnesia, and Jennifer and Gwen’s (Jennifer Ferrin and Jennifer Landon) heart-wrenching saga over baby Johnny, and I’ve been hopelessly hooked ever since. As time winds downs, the loose ends of Oakdale’s patchwork are being sutured together, some to my delight and others to my annoyed chagrin. Just like your favorite drunken cousin at Uncle Pookie’s home going, I’m going to tell it like it is, grief and tender feelings be damned! READ MORE
