Agree! Accents sound phony and are just annoying. Rama needs to go! I have watched OLTL for years but can see why they are struggling! They better get a better story line or they are history. Sad!!

I agree with Steve about Vimal’s wife. I don’t even know her name and i’ve been watching daily for months now. But she is a bad actress and her accent gets on my nerves as well. Let’s hope this new girl is not as bad!

Having an accent does not make someone’s voice “silly” or “annoying”. It is called being different. Rama is an interesting character, she has just been written terribly. It is not Shenaz’s fault. She is an accomplished actress in her own right. Vimal is also an interesting character. Either way, neither get much story. I am sure that Vimal’s sister will get about 5 minutes a week of airtime. That is why these characters can never be developed. There is a strong possibility that OLTL needs to boost it’s cast up so thtat there are enough players for the switch to… Read more »

Hey Todd, I agree with you. OLTL does try to provide diversity, more than B&B, GH and DAYS. B&B takes place in Los Angeles, where there are many Latinos, African Americans and homosexuals, but you wouldn’t know it watching the show. Salem, where DOOL takes place only has one two hispanics and two african americans and the same goes for GH (Epiphany & Shawn). The world is made of many colors and we all want to see ourselves represented on screen. Maybe that is why cable and internet programs are succeeding, while the networks are failing. I hope when OLTL… Read more »

Shenaz Treasurywala’s accent is REAL and I personally find it very very sexy. She’s also the only reason I even bothered to watch this soap opera nonsense.

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.

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”
