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.

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.

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.

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!)

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.

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 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.

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!

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
