Lord, I can’t wait for spring and to start streaming these shows from my HuluPLUS. Will be nice to have more to chose from than what we have now. Showkiller Jill Farren Phelps has turned “Young and the Restless” into a 5-day-a-week joke.

LOL c’mon Y&R ,no matter how boring it is and it’s use of recycled couples it is the #1 soap..
Heck, no reporter or blogger can write Y&R as just the Y&R they have to add; the #1 soap.. which it truly is not..
GH beats Y&R hands down any day of the week ..

Very good, simple, & to the point 🙂

Do we know if these versions will allow coarse language like the F word or will it be more family orientated?

jim
Guest

I dont know which version you prefer but its been hinted that coarse language will be used and possibly fleeting nudity. Thats unfortunately the only way they know how to update these shows today. I dont think itll be too much, and will give it chance b4 i judge it. I know some people wont tune in even if a little coarse language is used and fleeting nudity. Hopefully ill be okay with it because i miss these shows. But if it does go beyond my taste i wont support it, and it doesnt bother me if others do.We all… Read more »

Personally, I don’t care either way if there’s language or not. It won’t make or break it for me as a fan. All that matters is that if the writing is good & it engages me, i’ll definitely tune in.

uh, how am I bitching?! I asked a simple question with a straightforward “yes or no” answer.

I wasnt complaing about anything. I was answering a question plus adding how id like to see groundbreaking stories done the way Coranation Street does them with more ethnic characters and lower to middle class families. I feel todays soaps are too upper middle class. It takes more to be groundbreaking than adding a cuss word or a little t&a. These shows need good stories to bring us in. I SAID I WAS GIVING THE SHOW A CHANCE B4 A JUDGE THE DANG THING! Iv watched shows with some adult content and it doesnt bother me. I was only saying… Read more »

I hope my response to you wasnt misunderstood like this other reader thinks. It does take good writing to engage us as you said. I wasnt bitching or complaining and i know you werent too like this other person thinks we were. All i was trying to say is that it takes more than coarse language and t&a to be groundbreaking and its good stories to hold our interest that i agree with you on.Some cussing isnt going to tune me out as well. I was saying that if i dont like what i see when i see it i… Read more »

I don’t love how the l in live is under the n, but I do respect and appreciate that oltl is all lower case. One Life to Live traditionally had all upper case or lower case letters as the logo (with the exception of that awful mid 90s logo where the word Life was a mix. All My Children logo looks great to me.

I’m not loving the logos. They are too 70s and OLTL is not capitalized as a proper name should be. Not sure I like having new titles either, but the old ones weren’t great. The older blue scenes were the best. Also I’m concerned about the photos I’ve seen. Are they building all new sets? I believe you ran an interview with Jerry van Dorn where he said PP bought all the old sets. If Llanview doesn’t look like the Llanview we all know and love, the show won’t feel right and might be difficult for fans to accept. I… Read more »

What difference do the sets make? We are getting our shows back! My favorite will always be OLTL, we have the most important cast members so I’m just hoping for some really good stories.

I like both logos but much like the cast photos I find myself gravitating towards the All My Children the logo seems more “classic” but updated just a tad. Which is strange because my soap is OLTL nothing against there pictures and logo I just enjoy AMC’s more.

The logos look good, prefer the one for AMC. What I am really excited about is the new show openings…I would love to see OLTL use the music (although updated) from one of their old openings….”here’s where you go when it looks like the rain won’t end”….the one that Jeffrey Osborn I believe sung on.

Cannot wait for OLTL to return!

I’d love for them to use that theme song too. Peabo Bryson did the original. I’d love have Kassie DePaiva record a new version.

The One Life to Live logo is very digital modern ..

The AMClogo is in old time script ..

I do like OLTL logo best ..

These look really old and retro. Nothing new looking and progressive abt them at all. That must be appropriate though considering the lack of Asian american representation on amc. There are no Asian american chars on amc while there are only 2 recurring Indian american chars on oltl who were not even styled by george kotsiopolus for the cast photo. The Asian americans don’t get the same priority as the other chars. How is any of this new? It’s the same thing these old soaps have done before.

Loving the new logos for both series. It’s quite interesting takes on both of them. Now let’s see how the opening sequences go.

Wow, a graphic designer with a basic font library spent all of five minutes creating these logos. They look like watered down versions of the most recent logos, so what was the point?

Nice. The ‘l’ under the ‘n’ is a bit unnerving, but okay.

I like the OLTL logo! I just cant wait to hear the new themes. I hope that this time around they have closing credits. I believe that the theme music of the soaps is what makes the show! I mean any show that you love, even if your not watching it, as soon as you hear the theme you automatically know…thats my show!!!!

I hope they don’t change the OLTL ” s theme song too much! That you can’t recognize it

I have a question for everyone – Isn’t the important thing our shows are back? Isn’t this what we fought for? Why don’t we wait until the first episodes air and take it from there. I can’t wait until April to see my faves!

New? These logos are similar to the old ones. A sophomore in high school could have desinged better logos. Safe soap writers, same soap crew behind the scenes…I’m concerned how different these reboots will be and if they can attract a new audience. That is what they need to do to survive. Sadly, I don’t feel confident that there are enough changes behind the scenes to take the soaps into the future.

What are Safe Writers? Same soap Crew? Oh you mean Camera men and what not? The Soap crew had nothing to do with what happened to OLTL…..

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
