Sharongate, bitches!

Thanks for posting this, GL is actually the ONLY show Marland ever received Emmy's for as head writer. He also has an Emmy as apart of Another World's 1975 writing team, headed by his mentor Harding Lemay. The man's a genius and did so much for GL during his three years there. I greatly miss the Reardon's (a Marland created signature family).

He left GL over creative different with EP Allen Porter and suggested Pat Falken Smith to replace him there, but that was a huge mistake. I often wonder what he thought of GL after he left, I'm sure he wasn't too happy with the show, though GL did surge in popularity during Pam Long's first run as head writer. I think the closest GL ever came to recapturing some sense of Marland's golden era was during Nancy Curlee's head writing run in the early 90's. It's quite ironic, as it was Curlee's writing team who in 1993 beat Marland's writing team at sister-soap ATWT for the 1993 Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team.
