Defying All Logic: Hollywood Heights

After watching what has unfolded on Hollywood Heights the past few weeks I decided I had to say something about the latest plot twist. If you have been watching the show lately I'm sure you already know that I am referring to the storyline that has everyone believing Eddie is dead. When this storyline first began it had the potential of being a compelling mystery, which, in all honesty should have been resolved by now, especially since the show is nearing the end of its run. (So far it hasn't been picked up for a second season and likely won't be.)

The plot twist that started out so promising quickly turned into something laughable. First of all Eddie said that after he stopped at this gas station in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night, he needed to use the restroom. Apparently he couldn't hold it until he reached a safer location, so he left his car, wallet, and I'm assuming keys with creepy gas station guy. I know Eddie isn't exactly known for tr…

Touchback Will Touch Your Heart

Last night I watched the film Touchback starring "Port Charles" alum Brian Presley (Jack), who also co-produced the film. I really wasn't sure what to expect from this movie. I knew very little about Presley's production company Freedom Films or about Touchback since it wasn't heavily promoted. In addition I had never seen Presley in anything other than "Port Charles," but I knew the film was supposed to be inspirational and a project that Presley was passionate about so I added it to my watch list, and I am so glad I did. Touchback is both inspirational and entertaining and serves as an outstanding showcase for Brian Presley's talent and range as an actor. 

Everyone has had those "what if" moments, where they imagine how different their lives would be if they had chosen another path or if various unforeseen incidents had not intervened to change the course of their life forever. Touchback explores this aspect of humanity in a way that is m…
