I will so be there enjoying these episodes from the best show ever!

Wish they had picked the one where Nora was being held by Troy, and then Lindsay gets involved…. Why is it that OLTL downplays Nora & Lindsay? To me, they are on the same level as Viki and Dorian……just classic rivals.

Gloria

I’ve always thought that too.

Can’t wait to watch JL in action again as Karen Wolek. Still, IMHO, the best and most powerful performance in daytime TV. Period.

The ones with Nathan Fillion as Joey in them! Love him! Will be a treat to see him on OLTL again. And I agree with Torrey, NOra/Lindsey was classic!!!! Loved their rivalry!

That’a great but I wish they would put more episodes from the 1970s. I know the episodes prior to 1975 were, for the most part, discarded. But ABC has all the episodes from 1975 to 1980. They could certainly put more than just one episode from 1979 IMO.

There are too many incredible episodes of OLTL. A couple of silly ones were July 4th specials:

I’d kill for ONE Eterna episode too. Not so much recent stuff, but glad to see everything they are putting on as well. I’d swap the Bo and Nora marriage episode for Slezak’s 40th anniversary episode from this year if they’re showing such new stuff.

Lets hope that we get some DVDs of episodes like this like they did for ATWT.

Ever single one is a classic! i have seen and loved all the one listed. I have never been so sad about the ending of a TV show in my life.

They all look good, and I will watch all of them. Why did the studio discard episodes? I’ll bet now they wish they hadn’t.

I’ll be watching through the live show – the last three interest me not in the least.

One of the live shows is on there? Woo hoo! That was a great week, and very cool of them to do that. I remember Kassie as Blair being on fire at that time (and loved her looks then!)

Gloria

I’d love to see some when the Buchanans first came to town. And some of Starr when she was little. She had some great scenes with Asa. I loved Clint Richie & remember Mimi, Delilah & Chuck? And when Samantha Vernon married Asa? Great shows. And it is STILL a great show. Better every day, cannot imagine my day without it.

Karen Wolek on the witness stand admiting her life as a prostitute. One of the best episodes I can remember/fell it love with the show when she was on it

What would have been a great episode was to pick the one where the actress Ellen Holly who played Carla Benari a black actress who on the show pretended to be white that was One Life to Lives probably most powerful storyline. Google the actress and find out what all happened during that time. Thanks.

Alley

Can’t wait! These are going on my DVR and I’ll be keeping them for a long time. How sweet would it be if Soap Net started rerunning OLTL starting as far back as they have saved episodes? That would be must see TV for me!

I’d like to see a DVD Package on this. Other wise ABC’s dead to me.

I hope some OLTL fans watching this all-day special will record these episodes and post them on YouTube. Some cable subscriber packages do NOT include SOAPnet so not everyone will be able to watch, unless they are available on the internet.

Will ypu be airing the past episode marathon again. I hope so. Let me know! I missed the ones I wanted to see.

This was awesome. Tuning in to these OLTL classics was like paging through a family album. And to see that Karen Wolek on the stand epiosde again (1979) was so revelatory in how good soaps are and how well OLTL told a story.

I spent the whole day watching these classic episodes. From Judith Light’s mezmorizing performance on the stand, to a trip back to the old west when Vicki walks in on Clints marriage to Ginny, to Argentina watching Tina go over the falls, to Megan’s death, to classic showdowns between Vicki and Dorian, and so on showed me once again why OLTL is such an exceptional one of a kind soap. OLTL stands apart from the rest.

Torrey
Torrey

Thought it was hilarious when at Asa’s funeral, they were going the montage’s of his wives, and when they got to Blair they showed the woman who originated the role then cut back to Kassie….she showed a brief moment of confusion then pulled out her compact and checked out her reflection….LOL Loved that!

that was funny, thats one life to live ,there is alot of drama ,but they always make us laugh.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
