Why you don't kill off Myrtle


This, as Daytime Confidential reader Season1217 so aptly put it, is why you don't kill offEileen Herlie's Myrtle Fargate.

What is so amazing to watch, in this scene, is how much depth and history Julia Barr, Susan Lucci, Eva La Rue, Eileen Herlie, Jill Larson, Alicia Minshew and Eden Riegel bring to their characters. When you compare this clip (which can't be more than 2-3 years old) to today's All My Children, the disrepair of today's All My Children is so glaring you also have to wear sunglasses to shield your eyes. Ironically, back then we thought All My Children had problems. What is it they say about hindsight?
