His secret better be that he is in love with Liam if he wants to be on the show every day. Otherwise he is destined for virtual invisibility and ultimate abandonment (just ask Avant secret sister Sasha and the rest of the Avant clan). Why not just make him a recast Zende and juice up the family’s story line again? Bold and Beautiful – the 30 minute show that features 10 minutes of flashbacks and 10 minutes of commercials every day, leaving 8 minutes of rehashed dialogue to fast forward through and 2 minutes of actual new story. How do… Read more »

That was a funny comment! You are so correct in everything you said!

LMAO. He and Liam will be trapped in an abandon building thinking it’s curtains for the two of them, and kiss. Then be rescued. LOL.

Completely totally agree with you…This show is such a joke to me. I knew as soon as Hope came back into the picture, it was going to be nothing but the triangle of Steffy/ Liam/ & Hope….Everyone will be on the back burner for God knows how long because they are going to re-hash this story that they have beaten into the ground yet again! Tell me, why did I see today that Liam has already proposed to Hope?? I swear these two women have no standards at all when it comes to men. They act as if Liam is… Read more »

You make me laugh, friend. You not only make your point in an entertaining way… you make a very valid point! B&B needs a blast of something. I sometimes feel the show is sort of a daytime walking dead. I get no foundation for these relationships — such deep emotions are forgotten as soon as a brief story arc is finished — and no one ever does anything of import. Even fashion seems to take a backseat.

It’s odd that they’re introducing a new member of the Avant family when we barely see Maya and Nicole anymore, let alone Julius or Vivienne. It seems like B&B has too large of a cast to handle right now, considering the bulk of story is around Steffy, Liam, Hope and Bill.

Well he’s dark and after a month he AND his British accent will be in the shadows. .of the storylines. So you’re right.

Ohhhh, Dark Shadows and Barnabas Collins!! How I loved that show as a kid. Miss it still. Even with all it’s klinks, cameras showing, actors stumbling on lines, it was still so entertaining, sometimes better then the stories lately on the current soaps.

WHY???
The Avant’s are rarely on the show, so why do we need ANOTHER one?
If they’re adding to the Avant family, bring beck Sasha! That would be a much better addition!

Surprised at this. Why not make story for those already on the show? Where is Thorne? Has he gone back to the Forrester basement?

And who is there for this cat to hook up with?

Maybe Thorne is busy learning how to maintain a convincing American accent? 😉

I forgot about Emma. I guess they’ll pair these two up. Yawn.

You know what would be nice? If they used the Avants already in town instead of adding more. Write a big story for Julius, Viv, Rick and Maya and let’s have a much-needed break from Steam, Still and Lope. They brought Sasha on and did absolutely nothing with her once everyone found out she is Julius’ daughter. Now, this kid is in town with a secret, so will he be gone too once it is revealed? I cannot believe they put one of the best actors in soaps (Jacob Young) on reoccurring status when he should be in a huge… Read more »

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.

Meanwhile, Newman took to his Facebook page and made this statement: “Thanks to everyone for the sweet posts and messages about my joining the cast of Y&R. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve had great respect for the show and its wonderful cast for many, many years. I’m happy to be a part of it. I had a lovely zoom meeting with Josh Griffith and Anthony Morina last night. We talked quite a bit about the character, and I’m very excited by the scripts I’m getting so far. I’m scared to death, of course, but I think that’s healthy.  It’ll be a new adventure and I’m feeling pretty blessed to have the opportunity. Cheers”

Look for Robert to make his Y&R debut in February.
