My Favorite Soap Opera Story Line
I was only 17 when I started watching All My Children. It had only been on for about a month at that time. I quickly became addicted to this show because most of the characters were pretty close to my age.
When friends and family would ask me why I watch, I would tell them that its comforting to watch a show that makes my world seem normal in comparison.
My favorite story line was Tara and Phil and the love they had for each other. Erica was always trying to tear them apart of course.
When Phil was presumed dead and the day came when Tara was going to find out he was actually alive, I was working that day. I went in to work early so I could sign up for E-Time (excused time off without pay) just so I could watch the show in the break room. Funny thing was, I wasn't the only one who did that. The break room was full of my co-workers. It was the most emotional episode yet. Everyone was crying tears of joy. But, Phil ended up dying in a plane crash later.
I met Phil, (Richard Hatch) while I was walking around the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach where I worked at the time. He was staying there for the summer. You can see a picture of him with me on tab two.
I miss AMC so much.
