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 to watch soaps..
that is no longer our world 🙁
thany for the internet and other ways to watch!!

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.

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.
