Good-bye Llanview

The Citizens of Llanview, PA

I’ve been watching, taping and recording One Life to Live for more than 41 years…since Heather was born. I’ve been through all of Viki Lord’s alters, marriages and almost-deaths. Tomorrow January 13, 2012 is the last episode for this “soap opera”. I’m sad to see it pass. Most of the stories have been great, with the exception of the underground city. The acting has been superb…Trevor St. John as Todd Manning waiting for his lethal injection at his execution was Emmy-worthy. The plots have been unusual and the characters memorable. I would have loved to have been a writer for the show – many times I pretended I was and tried to imagine how I would finish or twist a storyline.

I will miss everyone. I know several of the characters (some of my favorites, too) are moving to General Hospital but it won’t be the same. I’ll miss Viki and Clint and Bo and Nora. But I am glad I was there, in Llanview, for more than 41 years. It was fun and I was never ashamed to say I was a fan.
