    • Bold and Beautiful

      I'm tired of the writer putting Liam with Hope and then Steffy. Steffy is more for Liam then Hope. I dont want Hope and Liam back together after she lost their baby, they need to stay together. Without Hope entering back into a relationship Make it happen that way and move on. Brook preg. with her sister husband child, how can she be a role model to her own daughter Hope. She giving her the wrong ideal ,don't let it happen. Steffy needs to be happy with Liam and Liam need to make it work with Steffy and forget about Hope.moreless

      I've already watched the very last episode on 9/18/2010,Tonite the very last episode is being aired in the Netherlands. I still love it to pieces, and it definitely helped me to get through some of the toughest times i've had in my life and trust they were tough.. Not only on 9/18/2010 i've cried, i also cried when it was official that the show would in US and everytime i think about losing the best drama-series there was that i actually watched... I'm even crying now. Anyway i'm also gonna cry tonite.

      I'm happy to call myself a true loyal happy emotional fan of As The World Turns... I never wanted to miss a single episode, and if i did i watched it back without subtitles of course.. (that's what annoys me while living in the Netherlands.. THE FREAKY SUBTITLES)moreless
