    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.

    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:
    Babes Behind Bars
    Trading Places

    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!)

    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!

    this is good ,I hope abc doesnt put that chew crap on and tell all the oltl fans that the revolution is taking over come january 16 .abc loves rubbing it in.that their format has changed and all the devoted fans of abc ,can jump off a bridge.

    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.

    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!

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

B&B’s Denise Richards Reveals Her Husband Aaron Phypers Will Be Stand-In During Ridge Forrester Intimate Scenes

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Then let us know what you think of B&B’s love scene or intimate moment protocol in order to get new episodes in the can safely for everyone involved via the comment section.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
