I miss Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

I wonder if the fans can order the photo?

I miss GL. What they did to that show in the final years was criminal.

Remember Stenbeck’s final funeral on ATWT? His ex wife stabs the corpse in the chest just to make sure he’s really dead this time? Sooooooo good.

So agree Tomas about what they did to GL…I loved GL when Douglas Marland was the head writer…

Yeah Guiding Light is definitely missed. Too bad their previous exec producer Paul Raunch passed away because according to Grant Aleksander (Phillip) PR was working with P&G/CBS about bringing back GL on the internet. It was a done deal and then he passed away.

How do I love Peter Bergman? Let me count the ways. I also love Melody Thomas Scott, the one and only Eric Braeden and Eileen Davidson. How interesting was it to hear MTS talk about having her picture taken with the late and great Mary Tyler Moore back in 78. (by the way, what has MST done to herself? She looks amazing!).

I would love to get a print of this BUT Cheryl Underwood HAD to be front and center and ruin it! She is loud AND obnoxious! No thank you.

Agreed. The Talk cast period is annoying, and they showed way too much of them in this video. Same with actors from Y&R and B&B, I was hoping to see more of the Guiding Light actors.

Why do they keep on bringing newbies on Bold & Beautiful when we haven’t seen Caroline in ages. She went to New York with the baby, came back and left again. I want to know how she takes Ridge & Brook’s engagement. I don’t think she left because they still show her picture in the credits at the beginning.

The photo is too small to identify who all is in it, but it’s a lovely idea. I wish they would offer it to the fans as a keepsake. Does anyone know if it’s for sale anywhere?

Rodd, did you push the play icon? You’re right–you cannot see much from the small photo but if you play the video it makes a lot more sense.

I did, but it was so quick, I could identify most.
