Dear Julie Hanan Carruthers Part 2*Likes ,Dislikes AMC

What did I like about todays show February 18,2010
I liked the family moments with the Chandlers
Adam spending the night on the sofa to be near JR and make sure he's allright and find him donors
I liked Krystal reaching out to Marissa because JR is sick and possibly dying
I liked Adam hiring Tad but I felt that Tad should have guessed who this person could be but maybe you're keeping that for another day so I'll let that go!
Annie's mental illness is understandable given her prior behavour with Greenlee but I hope tha Annie doesn't lose under your plan but has secret funds Adam doesn't know about given how she got nothing from her marriage to Ryan except a divorce and a trip to the looney bin!
What I didn't like about todays show February 18,2010
I didn't like Nu-Colby ( she just doesn't seem to have the acting chops to be Colby the product of Liza and Adam!I've tried to like this actress but she doesn't seem to be able to walk and Act at the same time

Ryan and Greenlee:
The Ryan and Greenlee reunion scences should have been magically and compelling!Unfortunately scenes are very bad.Ryan is coming off as a creepy kidnapping stalker and the voice Cameron is using is part of the problem as well ! He must think it's gentle and sexy but really the voice is coming off as extremely creeping and demanding! Ryan kidnaps Greenlee locks her in a room with him and when she complains she is hurt he still manhandles her? Then Greenlee says she still loves him? Do the writers stop to think before they write any of this !Everyone wants to be kidnapped manhandled and prevented from doing what they want don't they!And if you didn't recognize that was sarcasm!Learn how to write love scenes and realize the limitations of your actors!It isn't romantic to have a character who is known for violence to act this way!If they need acting help get it for them and don't write them as stalkers and manhandlers and then call them heroes!

Part 18- The Disappearance of Emily-Ann

“Mother I’ve ben called into the hospital could you watch the girls and keep the alarm on while
I’m gone?’asks David
“No worries David if Billy Clyde came here I’d take him out!’says Vanessa
“Oh I’m not worried mother I know the children will be safe with you!’says David slyly
“ Go dear !But I don’t think it would hurt if Rose started some self defence lessons next week!You know she is getting older and I like her to be able to defend herself especially from boys!says Vanessa
“Boys she’s too young for boys she’s got med school ahead of her a whole life before boys!’says David
“David she’s teen and teen girls like boys!’says Vanessa
“Over my dead body!’ says David
“David dear that isn’t he attitude to take you better get the right attitude now before it happens!’
“What happens?’asks David
“The guy her Dad hates comes into her life!’says Vanessa knowingly
Flashback to Jesse and Tad in the car
“There he is there’s the nasty perp!”says Jesse excited

“Don’t tell me how to do my job Tad I know what to do!’says Jesse
“Natalia ,Brot,Bob Fred are you in position on my count we box him in are the spikes in place?”asks Jesse over the radio
“Yes the spikes are in place sir !’says Brot
“Oh no he’s spotted them he ‘s going over the sidewalk”says Natalia
Billy Clyde fires out the window at Natalia and Brot
“Thank goodness Dad made us wear our flack jackets!’says Natalia and then she says “what as she sees Brot’s face
“there’s blood !’says Brot still driving
“where ?'says Natalia as she looks under her arm and just under the flack jacket she’s been shot .
“I don’t feel so good!’ she says fainting
“Don’t you dare die on me Natalia !I love you don’t you dare leave me we’ve got a future together pleads Brot then Brot pulls over laying Natalia down taking off his shirt and pressing it to the wound as he calls in at the same time saying “Officer down at Main and burbank Officer down!Send immediate assistance!”
“Oh my god that’s Brot Natalia’s with him!Please God don’t let it be Natalia that’s shot “says Jesse”I got to know Tad if that’s my baby girl!’ turning around and sending more cars after Billy Clyde
“I understand Jesse just please let them find my baby girl and my wife!’ says Tad
Jesse gets out of the car and runs to the open door of Brot and Natalia’s squad car
“You were suppose to keep her safe Jesse!’ admonishes Brot
“I know sir I know I love her sir I’d give my life for her!admits Brot”I wish it had been me!’
“But it wasn’t was it ?"says Jesse unfairly”It went riht through her flack jacket?how?
“It went under her jacket near her arm.I’m stopping the flow of bleeding !'Brot says as Jesse finally notices that Brot has his shirt off and is pressing on the wound.The amblance arrives taking Natlalia away as Jesse says grabbing Brot's arm
“I’m sorry Brot that was unfair let’s get to the hospital!’

Dear Julie Hanan Carruthers and writers

First of all let me tell you that we can see some improvements in our beloved show All My Children! Thank-you for that!

That said one of the biggest problems with the show now and in the past has been the constant touting of Ryan as a hero!The writers are responsible for our dislike of the character ! At one time Ryan was a sweet interesting character, a character we even liked to root for but that all changed when he began his manhandling of every woman who cared for him and his mental and physical abusive of them with no punishment! If you want him to be a leading man you need to :

1.Show us Ryan truly sorry for his past actions and getting therapy .Make him realize he's not perfect!

2.Don't let him win every woman he crooks his finger at turning them into mindless bimbos; have him have to really work at a relationship.

3.Get Cameron some refresher acting lessons.I like the man but the actor only has three faces mad smug and arrogant ;and it doesn't make me like his character!Is it you or Cameron responsible for this?If it's Cameron No offence I like you I really do but even the best actors need sometimes to step back and see when they are in a rut and fix it by going to acting classes!Talk to MEK he did this and he's better for it!

4..Make him spend more time with his daughter show us five seconds at the park or coloring with her and less overnights with strangers

5.And don't make all the other characters keep telling us how wonderful Ryan is .It doesn't work we're not that brainwashable!

Moving on you were quoted Ms.Carruthers as saying in SOD as saying "that the office started buzzing _you know "oh my God did you see that scene? and Oh my God I was crying in my office "And they've read it 15 times !"talking about the reunion of Greenlee and Ryan at the wedding!Personally I didn't see that and I usually cry at this kind of scenes at the drop of a hat!you also said "It's the connections that you have with the show that's so special ,when you hit it ,it reaches a place in people that not very many entertainment outlets can say they acomplish.That is true unfortunately for me and I believe a number of people who watch here on this board we didn't see this with the Greenlee and Ryan scenes!What we did see was an interesting coupling David and Greenlee which could have set up a future triangle being ruined at the altar of the past Grenlee and Ryan are the b and the end all of couples.Give us something to root for give us something exciting to watch we really have been loyal to All My Children but were tiring of seeing the same old recycled stories and the Scooby gang Gang up against David! That's just lazy writing! Think up some new things!Please and keep your job going and our show rolling!

Thanks a devoted viewer!

Flashback to the wedding as we hear the wedding march and Dottie comes down the aisle to stand by Tad!
Thaddeus and Dorothea., have you come here freely and without reservation to give yourselves to each other in marriage?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer
Will you love and honor each other as man and wife for the rest of your lives?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer
Will you accept children lovingly from God, and bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church?
“We do!"Dottie and Tad answer giggling a little
Since it is your intention to enter into marriage, join your right hands, and declare your consent before God and his Church.
“Do you Dorothea take Thaddeus James Martin to be your lawfullly wedded husband to have and to hold until death due you part?’asks the priest

I Dottie take you , take you Tad to be my husband, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live.says Dottie"
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, take and wear this ring as sign of my love and faithfulness. This ring I give to you as a token of my love and devotion to you. I pledge to you all that I am and all that I will ever be as your wife. With this ring, I gladly marry you and join my life to yours.”says Dottie

Do you take Dorothea to be your lawfullly wedded wife to have and to hold until death due you part?’asks the priestof Tad

I, Tad , take you, Dottie, to be my lawfully wedded wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.says Tad

And now the giving and taking of rings says the priest

“In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, take and wear this ring as sign of my love and faithfulness. “I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness. As I place it on your finger, I commit my heart and soul to you. I ask you to wear this ring as a reminder of the vows we have spoken today, our wedding day.”says Tad putting on Dottie’s ring on her finger
“Lord, bless these rings which we bless in your name! Grant that those who wear them may always have a deep faith in each other.May they do your will and always live together in peace, good will, and love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.”says the priest
All respond “Amen”

And then in unison Tad and Dottie say to each other ”Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you, For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried.Dottie laughs here nervously and adds “Beside Dixe as well!’ as they continue May the Lord bless us and keep our union strong and fruitful!Amen

“”Does anyone have just case to prohibt this union ?asks the priest
No one says anything
“You have declared your consent before the Church. May the Lord in his goodness strengthen your consent and fill you both with his blessings.
What God has joined, men must not divide.
Everyone says” Amen!’ as Tad and Dottie smile
“I now give you Mr.and Mrs.Thaddeus Martin you may now kiss the bride says the priest as Tad kisses Dottie.
