I watch a few shows and I feel it isn’t done as well as the soaps are done for TV. Lighting & Coloring, etc. are off. Bad acting from a few too.

I agree with your assessment but I also see the potential it has because of all the experience of the people behind it, so to me it is a about the budgets because there are web series with less money and star power then they have and yet they look like high end tv productions.

Have you watched the recent episodes, or did you only watch the first episodes. For me the production (i.e. lighting, coloring) started out odd. You could tell they were working on tight budget. However, the production has gotten so much better in the later seasons. I honestly think it’s worth sticking with.

I been fascinated by the character Sarah’s past on this show because there is so much we have yet to understand and see, so I would love to see that played out on air. I hope they give us more info Sarah’srelationship with her mother and her mother’s family, since you can say all of this begin with her mother’s choices. I would love to see Mary Beth play her own character’s mother in the flashbacks, with the style and look of that era.

I have been a fan since before the series first aired. Gregory, cast and crew you have come a long way baby. I am so proud of all of you. Great cast and now with the new actors on board it will be even better. Each chapter we see is better than the last. For the nay sayers, I would like to see you do what Gregori has done on his limited budget!!
Onward and Upward The Bay, The Series.

I’ve been a big fan of The Bay since the first episode and feel like it just keeps getting better and better all the way around. Really looking forward to the next episodes and am excited to hear that Sara and Lee’s story is in the works. Eric Martsolf will be the perfect fit.

Nice! Really excited about these new additions. I love The Bay — it’s gotten steadily better in production values and when you couple that with the outstanding cast, it’s better than anything daytime has going. Now, if only we could get more and get it more often.

Looking forward to learning more Sara and what is up wth her past, as well as her current marriage to Steve. Definitely want more of her with Lex!

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
