Could be good, but I won’t be watching as I’m not paying for a subscription.

The filming looked like something I could have done. The finished product didn’t look professional, like you see on TV.


They won’t even let you see plan pricing without creating an account. How “fairh” based is that? Lol. SMH.


Faith not fair based. Well I could say fair too in this instance. Lol.


It’s all about the money.


This is a great soap! Looking forward to many more episodes! Thumbs up button here!!!


Im all for family oriented shows…this one has some good actors…but it seems like they are reading their lines as they go…and from the brief clip the acting is a little under preforming-maybe it improves but i will pass on this one…i seen a faith produced family friendly soap years ago called Another Life-it was an ok soap-that one i gave a B for a review!!!


Jimh I loved Another Life. Especially Terri’s sister Nancy. And Susan Scanlon made her debut on that soap. And Ione I think her name was. The black matriarch. That was back in the days when you still had characters like One Life’s Sadie Gray. That woman made a soap funeral and event to be watched for her singing lol.


I loved Lillian Heyman as Sadie on OLTL. What a treasure she was on that show. Such a real and honest character and portayal. She sure could sing, love hearing her voice on the Broadway cast album of “70 Girls 70”


What family? The Mansons?

Scott (ATWT Fan)

This is definitely not for me. Sorry, but it looks poorly produced and does not look even remotely interesting at all.



Television’s cup runneth over as far as good quality entertainment is concerned so I don’t think there is much of a market for this drivel.
And Antonio Sabato Junior is a terrible actor.


They cant make nothing for us as classy as Downtown Abby…The Brits are the best when it comes to good quality drama!!!


Harry…oh, I agree. To me, that Antonio Sabato, Jr. dude has always been a terrible actor…PERIOD!!!!!

Have a good one, Harry.


OMG. that looks so bad. I feel so sorry for Donna Mills. She is so much better than this!


Not a fan of Sabatto, Jr. Poor actor. Donna Mill’s deserves better than this.


Dear God In Heaven… someone….ANYONE…. reboot Knots Landing and save Donna from this dreck.


Oh no


Wow that looks HORRIBLE. I have friends who can produce a better quality product! Poor Donna Mills…


Is this supposed to be a sly comedy? I’d watch it if it was on regular tv/cable.


Being the Devil, I’m sure any comments I make about this soap would be considered “biased”…. but I fully expect it to be every bit as awful as the soap “Another Life” which aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network back in the 80s.

Possibly worse, if Sabato is allowed to bring his depraved political agenda into it…..


00ooh geez lol not for me ”’Christian entertainment company,” nope..
Antonio Sabato Jr. lost me when he spoke out during the election/what a radical nut job.
I would never pay to watch, especially not that one..

((( I, a Trekie, wouldn’t pay CBS to watch the new Star Trek Discovery, but!! I found it online for Free .. So, I’m good LOL ..


First time ever, I agree with you


hi Boes ..
wow! then we’re bonding and soon to be besties 🙂 LOL
I even agreed with me on that post lol ..


I wouldn’t have thought that Donna Mills would need the dough to star in this crap. Green screen background for the skies and even looks like green screen for that bedroom scene.

It’s sad too because I’m not sure how a soap opera will work in a Christian based production.


woah – I was so surprised to see MIchael Swan ! As the World Turns

Duncan and Shannon
Duncan and Jessica



Hey, a soap is a soap is a soap. More power to them. We need more traditional soaps of all kinds.


Agreed! Amen!


Not this kind


Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Michael Swan deserve on another for their extreme right-wing theories. I would never watch this because I know what these two guys stand for. Poor Donna. Who blackmailed her into doing this?


A “faith-based” soap? Sex, betrayal, crime, divorce, scandal, blackmail…errrr…can they include ANY of these in a “faith-based” show? Like, the stuff soaps are made of?


Rumor has it that Pat Robertson does a nude scene, full frontal, in the second episode, all for the eternal glory.

Lew S



I see this as a Big. Epic. Fail.



Donna Mills was better on GH. Can CBS bring back Knots Landing?


Great to c Antonio back saw u on home and family I’d watch u read the phone book miss seeing u glad u r back in the public eye

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.
