Opinion By Anna

Guiding Light Opinion for Week of June 16

This week of GL was ho-hum to okay at best. The GL writers need to do something to spice up Springfield, because right now the town is becoming incredibly boring.

The scene where Gus proposed to Harley almost made me cry. It was a long time coming. I couldnít believe it when Gus pulled out the ring. Gus and Harley are the best couple on Guiding Light right now and to see them finally get engaged is wonderful. I almost cried right along with Harley, and it was heartwarming to see the tears in Gusís eyes. I canít wait for the wedding.

The one storyline that has intrigue and potential is the triangle of Jeffrey/Cassie/Edmund. I have to say that I donít like Edmund and Cassie being together. I donít understand how Cassie can just forget the horrible things the man has done to her. The two of them being together makes me shudder. I do, however, like the sparks between Cassie and Jeffrey. Laura Wright and Bradley Cole have amazing chemistry, whether Bradley Cole is Richard or Jeffrey. I like the prospects of the triangle because Iíd love to see how Edmund reacts to the new man in Cassieís life. The scene between Jeffrey and Cassie where the towel brings them together was electric.

I couldnít help but feel sorry for Olivia every time she had a scene with Philip. She is so determined for him to still love her and want to care for the baby that the Olivia character is just a shell of her former self. Olivia used to be self-assured and independent. Now she is depending on Philip for everything. I wasnít convinced when Philip told Olivia that he didnít care who the father of the baby was. Was it just me, or did Philip sound less than confidant in convincing Olivia? The relationship between the two of them has taken a dive since the new headwriter came on, and I think itís a shame. Olivia and Philip used to have so much chemistry. However, I hope they stay together and the chemistry is revived. Olivia and Philip have great potential.

The whole storyline with Josh and Reva and Shayne is ridiculous. I donít think anyone cares what Shayneís choice is about baseball, and to make this storyline into a frontburner is wrong. The GL writers are destroying Joshís character by turning him into a callous, conniving father. I couldnít believe that he was taking Shayneís life into his own hands. No one cares where Shayne goes to play baseball, and to make Josh into some kind of evil father isnít right. This storyline shouldnít have been there in the first place. Every time a scene comes on about baseball, the show takes a major dip into Boring.

Hopefully GL will spice up the storylines, because right now even the Garden of Eden murders are uninteresting. One would think that a murder mystery could spice up the show, but after the climax of the murder of Alanís escort, the plot has gone into a tailspin. GL is just having trouble right now making a fascinating show.

Best scene of the week: Gus proposing to Harley.

Honorable mention: Cassie being pulled to Jeffreyís body because of the towel.

Thatís all for this week.
