After last night's post, I've been on YouTube this evening looking at old clips of GL - this post has two purposes; for me to actually have these links somewhere I can find them again, and in case anyone else is remotely curious and wants to watch them!!

The first ep I ever saw of Guiding Light was Bridget standing up and playing "Miss Just Cause and Impediment" at Dylan's wedding to Julie - she's about to leave, but when she hears Julie's vows, when she tells Dylan she'll always be honest with him, Bridget can't stay silent any more and tells Dylan - and the entire congregation thta the night before her wedding, Julie slept with Hart  WildHorsesp9

For those of you who watch Matt Bomer on White Collar or Chuck, you may not know that he got his start on Guidiing Light playing Ben Reade, son of Fletcher. (TIIC made him a serial killer, but we don't mention that.....) Here's a playlist featuring many of his scenes from GL (lots of Danny Cosgrave and NSA as Michelle - oddly enough, she doesn't annoy me as much once she's away from Danny!)

Sep 15 09 Philip proposes to Beth - again. There were a lot of scenes that made me cry during that last week on air. This is one of them.(And on a purely shallow note, Beth Chamberlin looks amazing!)

Goodbye My Friend :This was before my time, but so many people agree that the death of Maureen Bauer changed the fabric of Springfield irrevocably, and I've no reason to douubt that. But it was exceptionally well-executed. There are about 30 clips from the storyline on YouTube, I'm linking directly to the "You have broken my heart" scene:

Henry's letter to Vanessa:`After the death of Henry Chamberlain, a devastated Vanessa returns home and reads the letter he left for her. Another clip that makes me bawl.

Otalia: before the cancellation announcement and the utter travesty that their storyline eventually degenerated into, Otalia were nothing short of amazing. Here's Olivia-GraveyardConfession and  Natalia-GazeboConfession

Michael Fairman's four minute tribute clip, which was not aired at the Daytime Emmys:

I do have other favourite clips bookmarked; think I'll be doing a second post on this one!!

Today is (or would have been) the 45th anniversary of Another World first airing on US television. It's also 10 years since it was cancelled, and last Friday May 1st was the 20th anniversary of the death of Douglass Watson (Mac Cory).

AW was the first of the US daytime soaps that I really got into, and I still miss it to this day. (I'm still incredibly bitter that Sky One took it off the air just as Ryan's ghost was about to show up, but that's a rant for another time!!) So in honour of the day that's in it, here are some of the favourite AW scenes that I've found on YouTube. (WARNING - there's a lot!!)
