Passion,glamour,killings and tornadoes: let's go to the green pine valley

One day,in the afternoon,I saw a pretty blond guy who was delivering a Christmas present to a middle-class family. Shortly after, the old lady started moving towards the basement, with the parcel in her hands and while she was going down the stairs I could hear the sound of a ticket bomb cluttering between the other gifts, ready to explode. It was 1989 and since then I couldn't stop watching AMC a.k.a. " LA VALLE DEI PINI ", here in Italy. The blond guy was Gregory Nelson and the family with the bomb in the basement were the Martins. At once, I was captivated by Agnes Nixon's little P.V. and I found some similarities between Erica Kane (working for SENSUELLE) and Lorna Forbes (working for AMOURELLE in the other Nixon's TV show LOVING). I started recording episodes from Greg's fall down from a catwalk and hospitalization 'till his wedding with sweet sweet Jenny (one of the most intense and deep love story I've never seen). Glamorous Erica was living with her phony half-sister Silver,who was trying hard to set up a trap in order to steal Erica's man and modeling job. She did it so cunningly that the beauty - queen was forced to go to the psychiatrist for suffering nervous breakdown and amnesia. I loved the storyline concerning Nina and Steve: I remember the tail of a cyclone battering their helicopter and killing Steve. And I remember Nina's sister-in-law , auburn Linda Warner , burgling safes in P.V. And the Cortlands and the Chandlers' twins saga... Still now, when I enter this little lively place , I can breathe the spirit of American province ( and get short trips in NYC ) and I love staying with all these past and present characters, making myself at home. I'd like Susan Lucci to keep on surprising us and eventually to win another deserved Emmy Award!
