Just Because… Guiding Light

Watching the clips below, it’s hard to imagine that former GL writers didn’t know what they had, and didn’t build on the history of one of the show’s longest running supercouples.  I don’t mind when new writers want to come in and put their own stamp on a show.   It often creates a ‘freshness’ that long running shows need.  I just hate when they do it at the expense of the audience and when “their own stamp” means ripping soul mate couples apart, reconstituting them as part of new ‘pseudo soul mate’ pairs and trashing the history of the show in the process.   Even still, while  I never thought I’d say this after Wheeler took over GL, but I miss the show.  Daytime still isn’t the same without The Guiding Light.
