ATWT Opinion Article

The End of an Era.....
by Sonia

Ever since I got the news of the cancellation of "As The World Turns," I have been in total shock. Why in the world would the execs at CBS cancel our beloved show? Now, I guess I canít blame them, I mean if the audience for this show is no longer there, then maybe they're doing the right thing....BUT honestly Iím pissed off. I canít help it, I have been watching this show since I was seven years old, barely missing two shows a year. If by some chance my VCR or now PVR did not record my show, my sister and I would have a fit....haha you would think something explosive had occurred. Personally, the show provides an hour a day, five hours a week for me to completely relax and de-stress from everything that surrounds me. Itís great to be able to invest yourself into the drama that is Oakdale and the lives of its residents. I also love being able to bond with the many fans that have loved this show for generations.

The thing I think Iím going to miss the most is Jack and Carly. They have been my couple since day one. I fought for them to be together every step of the way. While I didnít agree with every single storyline, I admit that I was also interested in what would go down. I have to say recently itís been nice seeing Jack chase Carly down, and for her to say no. In the end I would love to see the two of them together, until then it would be nice to see the old Carly come back swinging. I donít want to see her lay down and take crap from anyone (including Jack). Letís see her stir up trouble and use some of the men in Oakdale.

I have to say Iím loving whatís going on with Emily right now. Itís great to see all of the drama that is surrounding her and Paul. By the end of the show it would be nice to see her finally get the second chance at being a mother, BUT I would also love to see Daniel come back to Oakdale. Like honestly, where has the kid been for the past three years or so. Iím getting tired of the show sending all of the kids away, and then forgetting that they even existed in the first place. Iím ok with them sending the youngsters away for a couple of months or so but age them up so they can be involved in some interesting storylines.

I have to say the characters that I disliked the most had to be ĎGwen and Will.í Will alone I can handle, but when they started to pair him with Gwen I slowly began to lose interest in him. I hated how they made Gwen Carlyís sister, and even more how everything was her fault. Iím not sure if it was just the character or it was the actress herself, but something just didnít jive. I happily say that I have not missed her on the show one single bit! Iíll admit it that I miss Will just a little bit. The craziness that is Oakdale is going to be missed by fans all over the world. I am deeply saddened by the fact that time is ticking away and soon "As The World Turns" will no longer be on the air waves. 

Good Bye Citizens of Oakdale...Itís been an AMAZING Run!!!

P.S.  I will follow Maura West to whatever daytime show she joins next!!

Well this is all just my opinion.
