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?

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

IT looks DREADFUL!

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, PureFlix.com.” nope..
and-
Antonio Sabato Jr. lost me when he spoke out during the election/what a radical nut job.
and-
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

Yowsah

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.

HA!!!!!!!!!!!

I see this as a Big. Epic. Fail.

Y-i-k-e-s.

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

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

As to the future, Jon and Cady explained, “We remain friends and wish each other every happiness. As people who work in the public eye, it can be difficult to have a private life. Regardless, we ask for your kind consideration in this matter.”

Jon and Cady met when they both appeared on As the World Turns, he as Craig Montgomery, and she as Rosanna Cabot. After four years together, the couple decided to get married in 2014.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
