      My View of Llanivew: May 30 Edition

      My View of Llanivew: May 30 Edition

      ( — Hate Nate? Welcome to the club.

      My hate of Nate didn’t start on any particular date, but instead I feel it was simply an act of fate. At any rate, whenever I see him on TV, my feelings of ill will toward him cannot be contained by a flood gate. But wait, even though it’s late, there’s more. Much like a smelly fish who was caught with some stinky bait, this is one character who has overstayed his welcome and needs to reeled in and relocated to another town because he’s starting to smell. By the way, did I have a cousin named Kate? That’s right mate, I can rhyme too, just like Ron Carlivati and the other writers on “One Life to Live” when they are choosing names for all of Jessica’s alters.

      Humor aside, however, I really do detest the character of Nate. His actions this past week where he, in a fit of rage, violently punched Matthew in the head (a wound that has proven quiet serious), only served to validate my opinion of him. No offense to the actor (Lenny Platt), but Nate looks like he is at least twice as old as his girlfriend Dani (who has also run of her course on the show), and it is more than just a little creepy. I’m talking about Christina Chambers and Brandon Buddy (ex-Marty and Cole) kind of creepy. Remember when Chambers played Marty how the relationship between mother and son seemed just a bit too chummy — almost like they were flirting with one another, instead of having a proper family relationship?

      I hate nearly everything about Nate, by the way. He really serves no purpose (I mean, we already have two other Ford brothers), and surely wouldn’t even be missed if he were to suddenly disappear. Seriously…name one thing you would miss about the character if he were gone? Thought so. I’m sure very few would even miss his parading around town without a shirt on 90% of the time. I mean, it’s not like there’s a shortage of other guys in Llanview who would be more than willing to do that at a moment’s notice and for even the flimsiest of reasons.

      Speaking of which, how contrived and idiotic can this show get? The entire sequence revolving around Nate and Deanna’s water gun fight was not only a complete waste of airtime, but an insult to even the most casual of “One Life to Live” viewers. Watching the two of them running around the apartment half-naked with dialogue like Nate telling Deanna that he was “going to get her wet” (or something to that extent), is not exactly Emmy material.  I knew viewers were going to be in for a big letdown when Nate came home in his full Llanview Lions baseball uniform (cap, knee socks, stirrups, and all), saying that he was hot, and that he needed to take a shower. And, of course, the air conditioner had to be out as well…sounds like the beginning of a really bad porn movie doesn’t it? Oh wait, “OLTL” already has that covered, with slut peddler Rick Powers and his latest masterpiece “Hold the Pepperoni.” Throw in the strippers that were on the show a couple of years ago, and we’ve got a Cinemax Friday night softcore porn flick in the making, minus the nudity of course. They could call it “Llanview After Dark” or something like that. I should probably stop at this point, before I give them anymore ideas.

      Nate just really needs to go away though. I don’t care if they kill him off, have him go missing, or simply move away, but he just needs to go. It’s bad enough that we still have his brothers Robert and James running amuck. James is annoying, what with spending his every waking moment thinking and dreaming of Starr so that he can inch closer to getting into her pants, and Robert with his hotdog costume and reading to sick kids at the hospital (let the redemption begin). And don’t even get me started about his hamburger costume-claded friend named Patty (talk about clever — if only) trying to “get cooking” with him. Although, if they were to start having sex, I would hope that Ford remembers to wear condiments…..sorry, couldn’t resist.

      Anyway, my point is that, with “One Life” only having about seven months left on the air (barring some last minute reprieve) you would think that the show would find a more productive use of their dwindling airtime by returning the show to its core values and characters, and giving the majority of fans something they actually want to watch, and not be embarrassed about. And yes, I realize it is a soap opera, but still, it should be (and has been) more dignified than this crap.

      I think Robin Strasser (Dorian) sums up the frustration shared by many “OLTL” fans regarding Llanview’s teen overload perfectly when she tweeted this weekend that “How BIG an ALLOWANCE do pre-teen+teens In a Frons-ian household get? They not buying big tkts.-yet. ‘Get ‘em young and grow them.’ Nonsense!”

      And yes, although Nate looks like he is old enough to be eligible for AARP in scenes with other teens who are actually teens, he is a prime example of what is wrong with the show at the moment. Don’t confuse my Nate bashing with an assault on his portrayer, Lenny Platt, however. I’m not blaming him for his horrible character — after all, it’s not his fault. He just has to work with the material he is given (much like the rest of the cast these days). Hopefully, with any luck however, things will get better soon so that “One Life to Live” can have a proper sendoff, fitting of its long history and rich legacy. Fingers crossed.

      Moving on, congratulations to “Michael Tunstall” and “Shariten,” both of whom correctly identified last time’s mystery “OLTL” celebrity guest star, which was former CNBC analyst and reporter Ted David.

      In case you missed the clues, here they are:

      In 2009, this former TV newsman moderated a debate between Llanview’s mayoral candidates.

      Now it’s time to play another round of “Llanview, Who Am I?,” a new feature where you have to use the clues to figure out the identity of some mystery celebrity from “OLTL’s” past. See if you can figure it out. Good luck!!!

      Here’s your clue….this aspiring actor found a more mature audience when he appeared in Llanview in 2009 as a thug.

      So who is this mystery group from the past? I’ll have the answers in the June 15th edition of My View of Llanview. Bonus points if you can tell me the name of the show which first made him a star, and what storyline his “One Life” character was involved in. And don’t forget to check out my Twitter page for all the latest “OLTL” news and information at SON.

      Now, before I wrap up this column, I’m going to look into my crystal ball and give you a quick sneak peek at a few things coming up a few weeks down the road. These are for the week of June 20th. Someone has a surprise visitor. A father demands answers. One person is seriously injured. And a patient at Llanview Hospital gets some potentially good news.

      Well that’s concludes yet another column. Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day holiday. Remember to buckle up! Take care and stay safe. And until next time remember, we only have “One Life to Live”…

        The Inside Story: The Newman Brothers Work Together While Diane Works on Nick
        Nick and Adam head to New Mexico to investigate Sharon's car accident. The two men meet with a forensics expert and they head to the scene of the accident. As the two brothers work on finding out some truth regarding Sharon, Diane, not wanting to be out of the loop, and in hopes of trying to get back with Nick, arrives in New Mexico. When she finally finds him, she only gets her feelings hurt when Nick blows her off. Nick decides to head back while Adam decides to stay put. Trying to find another opportunity to get close to Nick, Diane quickly joins him on the flight back. During the flight, she lets Nick know that Adam and she aren't having sex with one another, but merely friends. Meanwhile, Adam runs into the carjacker who encountered Sharon. While Adam is at the fair, he is unaware that Sharon is also there. He doesn't see her, but she sees him. She soon wonders if she should go to Adam and tell him the truth but decides not to. With no more information about Sharon, Adam decides to go back home. Back in Genoa City, Nick gives in to Diane and the two of them have sex; but unaware that Adam is heading back home.

        A Closer Look: The Truth of Cane and Caleb Comes Out
        The truth comes to light about Cane when his mother Genevieve comes to Genoa City. After discovering that Colin and Caleb had set their sights on taking the twins from Cane and Lily, Caleb headed to Genoa City to set the plot in motion. Unaware that his evil son was in town, Colin didn't realize it was Caleb, not Cane, that was shot down by Blake when he arrived at the church. Cane, upon seeing what had happened, decided to end his father's reign of terror for good, even going as far as to take on the role of his brother Caleb to get close to Colin to learn of his plan. With Genevieve in Genoa City, she tells her son that they will do whatever they have to in order to stop Colin. Unfortunately, Cane wants to change things when he learns that Lily has been placed into a mental hospital. When he tries to explain to his mother, she bluntly tells her son that they aren't changing anything: their plans will stay as they are. Meanwhile, Jill and Colin learn about Lily's fate and both head to the hospital to see her. When Lily gives Colin an affectionate hug, Colin becomes uncomfortable. Although he is touched by her kind gesture, Colin doesn't change his mind in stealing the twins from her.

          Lily pleaded with Neil to take the twins to stay with him; admitting that she thinks she's losing her mind regarding always seeing Cane. When Neil offered to stay with Lily at her house, she told him that she just wanted him to take the twins. Neil said that he had some business to attend to with Katherine, offering for her to join him. Up to being around other people, Lily stated that she would follow him in her own car. A worried Neil headed out with the twins in tow.

          Caleb continued his conversation with the woman that emerged from the shadows. He minced no words when he told her that he hated having to work with the likes of Colin. As he talked, Colin showed up at the park out of nowhere, which caused the woman to quickly hide. Colin complained how Neil was messing up their plans and ordered him to head back over to Lily's to continue working on her. Without much of a choice, Caleb headed over to Lily's. When he arrived, a frazzled Lily, who was on her way to meet Neil, ordered him to stay away from her, convinced that he was her imagination. She told Cane that she had to focus on what was real. Cane pulled her into an embrace but it only frustrated Lily more, as she ran out of the house ordering him to stay away from her.

          Nikki arrived at an AA meeting and as it started, Abby, who wasn't aware of Nikki being there, opened up about her problems, yet admitted she didn't know for sure if she had a drinking problem. As Nikki listened, Abby told those in attendance of trashing her mother's wedding site and how she succeeded in ruining her relationship with her boyfriend and drank to the point where she can't remember what she has done. She continued to share how she was scared that she might have done something terrible while drunk. As all of the members stood to recite the Serenity prayer, Abby looked up to see Nikki looking back at her. Once the meeting had ended, Nikki and Abby approached one another. Nikki asked her if her blackout happened during the time that Tucker was hit, to which Abby admitted to. When Nikki questioned her further about the events that happened, a jumpy Abby hurried off.

          Victor and Katherine met up with one another at his home, where she said she was seeing to it that she derailed Tucker's plans of buying up Newman's stock. A thankful Victor questioned if she thought on considering Victoria to run Jabot. Katherine told him she had too much on her mind regarding Tucker to give it any thought. In a kind question, however, Victor offered her a spot on the Newman board; to which she accepted. As the two friends talked, the topic of Nikki came up.

          With Katherine still away, Neil showed up at the Chancellor mansion. When Colin saw Neil there with the twins, he eagerly wanted to help him. Neil took him up on his offer and explained that he would be taking care of the twins until Lily got better. Colin agreed that he was doing the right thing, while Neil had offered up a thank you for making him aware of what was going on with Lily. As for Lily, rather than head to Katherine's, she decided to get herself checked into a mental facility. Back at the mansion, Colin, out of earshot of Neil, called Caleb to report that Lily's father was messing things up by keeping Lily and the twins with him. After his conversation ended, Caleb met up with the woman, who was revealed to be Genevieve, his and Cane's mother. She promised him that she was going to take care of everything.

          Nikki showed up at the ranch and told Victor that she saw Abby there at the AA meeting. When she shared that she believed that Abby could have been the one that was driving the night Tucker got hit, he accuses her of coming up with wild accusations. He warned Nikki to keep her notions to herself and told her to get out.

          Nick met with Doris at Gloworm but was displeased when Adam arrived. She told him she wanted the two of them to work on proving that Sharon's death was an accident, not suicide. She stated that the insurance company had refused to pay the policy due to the belief that she committed suicide. Adam agreed to work with Nick in getting the truth out there. Nick said he would call the coroner in New Mexico and Adam would call the insurance company. While they continued to work on doing what needed to be done, Adam and Nick agreed upon doing a video for everyone to see that they were out to prove Sharon's true nature of death. Meanwhile, Victor, who had left the ranch, arrived at Gloworm and got into it with Adam over the house. When Nick showed up again with a map for New Mexico, Victor asked what was going on. Nick explained what he and Adam were doing. When Victor offered to assist, Adam told him no, while Nick admitted that Adam and he needed to work together to prove the truth. Nick said that they would be headed for San Pueblo.

          At the farm, Sam asked Sharon if she wanted to go to the Memorial Day festival. Sharon told him that she didn't care to go. When Piper arrived, asking for help on her 4H sash, Sam started to help her with it. Sharon soon showed up and offered help as well. The young girl also attempted to get Sharon to say yes to going to the festival. Pipe became disappointed when Sharon said she didn't have time to go to the festival. Piper asked Sharon if she could see her laptop. Once the girl was gone, Sam questioned why Sharon didn't want to go to the festival with them. She admitted that she felt awful for telling Piper no. She then agrees to go to the fair, thanks to Sam's insistent charm.
