Today is a fantastic day for soap fans around the world, who have fought valiantly to resurrect All My Children and One Life to Live.  And early this morning, Hulu.com posted the first new episodes of the online versions of the iconic series from The Online Network and Prospect Park.

We are not going to this early in the day, give a blow-by-blow or shall we say, play-by-play description of the events that unfolded in the premiere episode, as many of our beloved soapers may have not had the opportunity to watch it yet.  But, we will be bringing you continuing coverage throughout the day and this evening.

So All My Children fans, if you have watched the first episode of the return of Pine Valley, share your reactions, first impressions, and what you loved, or didn’t love from the episode.

The following actors were seen in the premiere episode: Julia Barr as Brooke English, David Canary as Adam Chandler, Lindsay Hartley as Cara Martin, Vincent Irizarry as Dr. David Hayward,  Francesca James as Evelyn Johnson, Jordan Lane Price as Celia Fitzgerald, Jill Larson as Opal Cortlandt, Cady McClain as Dixie Cooney, Debbi Morgan as Dr. Angela Hubbard, Eric Nelsen as AJ Chandler, Denyse Tontz as Miranda Montgomery, Jordi Vilasuso as Griffin Castillo, Darnell Williams as Jesse Hubbard, and Rob Scott Wilson as Pete “Petey” Cortlandt.

I loved it! I thought the newbies mixed in well with the vets and have a lot of potential.

Very beautifully done – A really nice blend of the characters who have been the foundation of the show – Adam, Brooke, David, Angie, Jesse, newer characters before ABC made the decision to pull the plug, along with new ones introduced by Prospect Park.

I think the show will have a very broad appeal. The fresh start it’s getting off to couldn’t be better. This will be a great success!

I would give OLTL a “B” and AMC “B+” We all know that we do not love every storyline..as it is a soap. I would say that AMC was done with a bit more class, more of a reminder why we love certain characters. The new characters could be intriguing Evelyn and Celia, but seeing Jessie, Angie, Zach, Brooke, Adam and Dixie made it for me. OLTL, was too young for me. I did not care for the nightclub scenes, and seeing Destiny with a midriff, Dani stoned out. But seeing Vicky, Dorian, and David, Nigel, and the surprise at… Read more »

It was good. I hope the writers are going to get better at developing the stories. To be honest, the first episode seemed forced, disconnected and didn’t really leave you begging for more. Glad AMC is back, writers please do a better job!

Got up and watched both shows on my internet Tv this morning before work. Soooo good, especially OLTL. Very first episode ended with an awesome cliff hanger. Love it!!!

Amc felt like the amc that got me hooked in the first place. Back in the 80s with Jenny and Greg,but with an updated vibe…the kids did an awesome job! Here’s to another 40+

Frankly, my only complaint so far is that it was too short. The episode just flew by! I’m liking the newbies so far, Miranda is a real stand-out for sure. Denyse Tontz is just adorable! Loved seeing all the vets, especially Adam and David.

I liked it!!! I haven’t watched AMC for many years… but I thought even with the years apart it was a very good premier episode. It was like an introduction to all of those characters and I didn’t feel like I missed out on what had happened before because they made it feel like they were starting from that point and would tell me what I needed to know about what happened in the past. I liked the sense of more to come and yet at that moment in time things were familar and hopefull of fun stories coming. I… Read more »

I liked the AMC premiere much more than the OLTL in part because it captured the soul of the original show. I don’t think it was shocking per se because you got a good idea of what went down 5 years ago. Safe to say Marissa was killed by JR and David took revenge upon JR. My guess is that he ended up killing Tad. It will be interesting to see it play out.

clh
Guest

I agree with you about Marissa, but since we know JR is in a coma I would say that David put him there and that’s why he was in jail.

It was great! High class production and lots of intrigue to watch to find out what happened 5 years ago. Good mix of known vs. unknown stars and characters. When I tried to watch via this link, it got stuck, with only the audio playing. So I went to Hulu and it started part way in. There may be some glitches that way, but I sure hope they do well so they’re able to keep going. Now to go check out One Life to Live.

AMC did the cover up thing not really telling what happened 5 yrs ago, may throw some off. The younger ones did great. I see their potential. As for OLTL seeing Danni doing the drug thing really shook me up, but it does make sense why being Tea is off thinking about the baby she lost, and the supposed loss of her husband Victor Lord. Regardless to say we need some info on what happened not just its past lets move on.

I think everyone is just so happy to see these shows/characters back that they are willing to forgive a lot. I’m going to reserve my opinion for a couple of weeks to give it time to gel. Will be curious to see if people stay tuned in. I heard that they have to have at least 500,000 views per day to break even. Let’s hope they can get those #s.

I have not been a regular AMC viewer in over 20 years but I loved what I saw. All the regulars looked terrific. It was so great to see Angie and Jesse, Adam and Brooke and of course Opal. And all the young people look great too. I am very anxious to see where everything we were introduced to goes in the future.

I’ve been watching since the beginning but can’t now! No internet at home like many other viewers. Canadians get it on T.V. & we can’t ? Where’s the fairness there?

I read that in September Prospect Park will be able to shop AMC and OLTL to broadcast tv. The episodes would air on a one week delay from their Hulu premiere. I would still watch online to see the shows uncut but this will be great for those who can’t currently watch online.

Bill

Both were well done. The writing and direction (such as one character having problems keeping his towel on; another conversation about the daughter of a lesbian being a “vagitarean” or does she “like meat”; the online format allowed these writers to let their creative juices explode – a less than subtle middle finger to network censors!) The pace and story lines were great (AMC may have been a little too cheesey in the dialogue, but they have to explain the last 5 years in that dialogue). The end of the first OLTL was BRILLIANT! If this continues to develop; it… Read more »

Just watched the first episode of AMC on my cell phone via Hulu Plus. The people who didn’t think Prospect Park could pull this off couldn’t have been more wrong. The show looks great and more importantly it feels great. Can’t wait for the next episode. ANC is backk in a big way!!

I haven’t watched the show in many years, but did watched the finale. I can say that I was impressed and loved both shows. I am very impressed at the high quality HD and the appearance of the sets. So far, both AMC & OLTL are in the Top 5 on Hulu and I-Tunes. I know this will be a success and very confident both shows will be on TV in no time. I thought it was going to be a little over 20 mintues of content, when in fact, both shows had close to 30 minutes of content, with… Read more »

#AMC will take me more time to get used too. New characters, new town. It looks like they will be doing lots of location shots..always a plus. I think they held some main characters for future episodes. I’m just so happy to see my long lost friends!

So far, I like it. I wish it was longer . It would really be great if Erika, Tad, JR, Jack, and Annie would come back.. It was so wonderful seeing so many familiar faces. The only scene that I did not like was AJ and Miranda. That scene was just weird. Unfortunately, there is no fast forward on Hulu. That said, can’t wait to see what David is going to do! I think Prospect Park and Agnes Nixon did an excellent job on the revival of AMC!

So far, this is a great opening. It will take getting used to, as with all the new faces-I am thrilled our soap families are home. I hope that as time goes on, we welcome many more faces back. (Amc-Erica, Annie, Jake, Jamie, Jackson, ect and oltl-john, starr, christian, oliver, fish, ect). One life to life had the mystery, which it has always had more of-and amc has that homey feeling.

Watched them both. Liked AMC not so much OL.AMC was very recognizable. All the faces we knew and Mirander actually looks like her mother.. So far so good. I did recognize the fire escape on both shows. TPTB are doing a very good job and I just may watch AMC .OL to many new youngsters and to many stupid women. Dani on drugs That was awful.

I enjoyed AMC so much. It was so great to finally have my soap back but wish it was an hour but that’s okay. It’s back! It was so wonderful seeing as many great actors from previous and meeting the new actors. They blend well together. Can’t wait till tomorrow!

I enjoyed both shows, and believe they were well written. I just hope Tad is not dead on amc. And Victor raises hell on OLTL. I also notice joe is in the credits, but no Ruth. Perhaps Ruth was the one killed. And as for people saying the shows were not short, did any of you watch the shows on the ABC website without commercials? Each episode was about 35-38 minutes in length. In reality, you only lost about 5-8 minutes. If you don’t believe me, watch an episode of GH on the ABC website, and see exactly how long… Read more »

Thanks for mentioning this. So many fans don’t realize this, and when I saw both episodes this morning, I realized not too much is lost. Very glad both shows are back and off to a great start.

I watch GH daily on Youtube with NO commercials. With the opening and the end “On the next GH…” the running time is always about 36 minutes. In reality, we are losing NO time from an hour long show. Don’t tell the actors that though, or they’ll demand more money and the shows will go out of business. LOL.

So i should have never emailed my friend Jane Elliott, and let her know this fact?

Jovin

Why would that matter? LOL…She’d be happy if you told her. The actors on AMC and OLTL are the ones I was referring to. They are the ones who could say “Hey, we’re being paid as if we are a half hour show, when in reality, we are only a few minutes behind the supposed hour long shows.” Your friend Jane hardly has anything to worry about…she has 35 years of history with GH and it is an hour long show.

LOVED the first episode! Watched AMC first, then OLTL. Gotta say OLTL had a better cliff hanger ending (!!!!) and a faster paced episode, but AMC is doing what it has always done best… pulled at the heartstrings. Family storylines were front and center and that’s what I’ve always loved about AMC. Can’t wait to see more. Couldn’t be happier to have my soaps back. I’ve been smiling about it all day! Thank you, Prospect Park.

OMG…what are you people drinking? This is so bad that I am actually at a loss for words. And to think that Hulu Plus wants what? $7.95/mo for this. Ha, my toilet is a better investment for that money. Where did they get Miranda and AJ. AJ is a farkel and a bad actor and Miranda, well, whoever told this rather homely girl she could act. I still love David Canary, Darnell Williams, Debbie Morgan, Vincent Inizarry and, of course, Jill Larson. The rest need to find new careers. This totally stinks!!! And I am being kind in saying that.… Read more »

Thoroughly enjoyed AMC’s return! Liked the younger cast, for sure. Pete, Celia, Miranda, AJ all held their own so far. GREAT seeing Opal and that she has a home! The sets look fantastic! Loved Jesse and Angie’s apt with the patio. The Chandler mansion looked familiar. Cortlandt Manor also looked familiar, considering we hadn’t seen it in YEARS. Glad with their choice to do location work and it fits with what I’d expect Pine Valley to look like. Happy that they are letting the details of the finale slowly unfold, effects on Brooke, Adam, AJ, Miranda, Bianca, David, Cara, etc.… Read more »

First of all…let’s all give a hearty shout out that our shows are back! We have to watch them differently, some favourites are no longer here, and characters are able to curse liberally now, but our shows back, so let’s focus on what is actually happening! The opening sequence was good to feature Brooke and Adam, two of the show’s most iconic and recognizable characters after Erica. We got most of our favourites first, like Opal, and Jesse and Angie as well. It was a fairly lackluster opening, but one that felt like just another day in Pine Valley, which… Read more »

I was disappointed in this. It wasn’t so horrible I hated it but was missing so many things. All My Children without Susan Lucci was already a big minus I didn’t dislike the new characters and like that they tied them to core families. However maybe with time I will feel more invested in them. Out of the 2 I’d say I enjoyed One Life To Live more because I felt it had more happening and went faster. This seemed a bit slow. However it is only day 1 so still time to decide on liking or disliking the online… Read more »

I watched ALL MY CHILDREN episode one and all I can say right now is—have to give it a chance to really gain momentum. The first new episode seemed a little uneven and disjointed. I love Angie and Jesse Hubbard, but how many obligatory references do we need to the word “Big”? “I’ve got a big surprise for you, something big is coming your way, I’ll be in the shower waiting for something big” , etc. Okay, Okay we get it, they are allowed to do more on the Internet but c’mon write something more substantial than this. Don’t get… Read more »

I LOVED the first episode of AMC. It feels like the AMC that I once knew and loved. Yes, this episode did have a lot of newbies, but they’re tied to characters I care about so it works perfectly. The teen characters act and talk like real teens and I like how social media was brought into the mix. It felt very realistic. I loved that the show opened with Brooke and Adam and I’m very intrigued by the shocking events that took place five years ago. I wanna know who David shot! Is it tied to the incident Brooke… Read more »

Susan Lucci was missed. I guess she is the one in the coma. They have left a door open to her for her to return when she is through with Devious Maids. Glad to see Lindsay Hartley back on the show. Would be nice if Carol Burnett made an appearance someday.

I was disappointed that they didn’t really answer the question that everyone has been waiting to get answered for nearly two years. I had more questions after watching it. That was disappointing. I thought they could have done better for the first episode.

I had not watched AMC regularly in many years, but I was curious to see the online version of the show. Although didn’t know some of the characters, it was nice to see veterans that I did know in the forefront of the action. I think I’ll watch again when Susan Lucci returns…AMC is not AMC without Erica Kane! And for those who say the episode was too short, I think the broadcast episodes were only 35 min. minus commercials, so the 28 min. online is not much of a difference.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
