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.

How To Get Away With Murder

Rome Flynn Joins Netflix Series ‘Dear White People’ for its Fourth and Final Season

Daytime Emmy-winner and former How to Get Away with Murder star, Rome Flynn, will be part of the fourth and final season of Netflix’s Dear White People.

Flynn who played Zende on The Bold and the Beautiful and Gabriel Maddox on HTGWM will now recur in the role of David, opposite Antoinette Robertson.

Dear White People is set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface. The satirical series — which picks up where the 2014 Sundance hit left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age.

Rome joins a cast that includes: Marques Richardson, Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori and Ashley Blaine Featherson.

Deadline broke the casting news.   No word yet on a season premiere date.

Following the reveal of his new gig, Flynn tweeted: “Being apart of this final season of @DearWhitePeople is crazy. This is one of my favorite shows. again. I’m honored. @netflix #DWP”

So, will you be checking out Rome on Dear White People? Comment below.

OLTL & DAYS Alum Melissa Archer Mourns the Loss of Her Father to COVID-19

Covid-19 has now taken over 500,000 lives in the United States, and it’s heartbreaking to hear the stories of loved ones being separated by this virus in their time of need.

Now comes word from former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives actress, Melissa Archer (Ex-Natalie, Ex-Serena), that she lost her beloved father to Covid-19.

Melissa shared her thoughts in a beautifully written post which we have posted here.

In her Instagram post, Archer shared: I never wanted to imagine what losing a parent would feel like. I knew it would happen one day, but it always seemed so far in the future. My dad was so young. Covid is so evil. He fought hard – 51 days away from his family – even made it to his birthday. But the Lord decided to relieve him of his suffering and bring him home to Him. I know my dad will live on in so many people. He touched the lives of many and wanted so much for all to know and see the good in the Lord. I’m grateful for the memories. I’m grateful we got to do some amazing things together over the years. While there were times I didn’t appreciate him, he patiently waited for me to come back around. Sounds like another Father I know. I’m sad that I can’t call him right now to tell him how sad I am about not having him here to call. That I won’t ever hear the words missy poo pot pie again, that I won’t hear him look at a sign and say the words in a silly voice and think it’s funny (I now do this), that I won’t hear him sing with his band again, or have him say how much he loves his girls. But I know he’s in heaven, doing all those things, and I know he’s watching out for us. I hope he’s enjoying the beauty of heaven and all the promises we’ve been given. I hope he sees the rest of the fam that’s in heaven and rejoicing in their freedom.”

Please send your condolences and thoughts and prayers to Melissa and her family via the comment section below.
