I wish I could watch RetroTV on my cable system. I could get into following The Doctors. Didn’t really watch it during the original run. Looks like there are many familiar faces.

Thing is; The network will air two episodes Monday through Friday at 12 p.m. ET/PT in the old old days women were home during those hours, but they no longer are.. I would guess– seniors/retired and disabled are the ones home during the day.. that is a the big problem with the soaps is the hours/daytime they are shown.. If they were shown during the evening they would really pick up viewers.. G’ma said, there once was a time when a man was ashamed/embarrassed if his wife had to work LOL .. so yah, they were home during the day… Read more »

Yes and in those days women had their makeup and hair done for breakfast, all dressed up and ready to wait on their husbands hand and foot with martini in hand when they got home. My grandmother used to tell me that a wife had to always “please her husband” whenever he wanted and always had to look good doing it…LOL…

For those pioneers in their 90’s now, they really do not understand the world today… Leave it to beaver was reality back then.

I dont get this channel like i originally thought…wouldve love to seen it again…rare for a soap to have all its episodes…ive watched Dark Shadows and Strange Paradise who have all there episodes but they were supernatural soaps where The Doctors isnt…and its rare for a normal soap that began in the 60s to have all their episodes…Days might be the only other one…GH i heard has a lot from the 60s but some from the early 70s are missing…wish AW and Edge had all of theirs but most are gone forever!!!

Man I wish I had Retro TV, I wish I some of the retro channels in my area would start rebroadcasting some of these old soaps. I would love to see soap episodes from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. That was the great thing about SoapNet back in the day before they went reality on us and eventually died.

Hopefully more classic soap episodes are shown in the future.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
