It’s been awhile since we have all seen our beloved Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad, All My Children) on our daytime television screens.  That drought ends next week on The Young and the Restless! 

That’s when Knight makes his return to the soap world in his new role as Dr. Simon Neville, a highly-intelligent and forward-thinking doctor, who is brought in to the canvas by Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John), who is looking for a solution to wake up the unconscious Hilary (Mishael Morgan).  For Neil, his plans have gone so far off the deep, that he now has his accomplice Gwen (Nadine Nicole) to deal with too! She claims says she is doing all of this, because of her love for Neil!

In the latest CBS Daytime promo, the action next week spotlights:  Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Adam (Justin Hartley) trying to figure out their relationship, after everyone knows that Adam has been walking among them as Gabriel Bingham for almost a year.  And, then it turns to the network announcing: “Michael E. Knight joins the cast.”  Michael’s first airdate is Thursday October 15th.

Watch the latest promo after the jump welcoming Michael E. Knight to the CBS fold!  Then let us know if you are excited to see him back on daytime, and what you think Dr. Neville will do …  or is capable of?  Will Neil’s plans ultimately backfire on him … yet again?  Comment below!

Suoo, this is frightening to me. I agree with you on this.
Michael E Knight is going to be a sight for sore eyes for sure. In fact, I was looking for him today! I have really missed MEK. I so hope he can find a way to interject humor into his role.
I also agree with you about Chelsea. I cannot stand her and think she is so unworthy of his love.
Now here is affirmation that is all right with the world and that you and I continue to be polarized opposites–I think the only woman for Adam is Sharon.

hey Harry..
I wish Adam would get a dog LOL
I can see Pratt writing Adam and Sage as next couple of interest.
It would put brother against brother and Adams son (baby is his) out of the hands of Victor who will go into kill mode over his grandson being Adams boy that would be big drama..good soap drama ..
((If the baby lives it surely will be Adams..

yup! Adam and Sage= endgame ..

Harry

Why would you want to inflict that simpering, mousy, whiny little fool on Adam.?
Hasn’t he suffered enough for his sins?

I know. I never even think of Chelsea as a beauty. She’s passable. She is adorned to create an okay look. However, a great personality tends to make one overlook average or lack of gorgeous looks, or any physical flaw. Looks aren’t everything. As you say, Harry….Chelsea is whiny….wanting what does not exist….a perfect husband ( well, except for mine. Lol.) She is not what I would call an ideal wife, mother or person, in general.

Timmm

I NEVER liked Chelsea but if Michael Muhney’s Adam wasnt going to be with Sharon, Chelsea and he had some chem. Justin’s version doesnt click at all with Chelsea AND where is the ruthless Adam who always had an angle. This version of Adam walks around like a female cat! Move on already!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Perfect word, Harry. Wholesome….that’s it. Chelsea is wholesome.

CeeCee

Ah, Su…ummm. You need a cold shower. I think you have a case of the fever. I sometimes sing Robert Palmer’s , DOCTOR, DOCTOR. My husband comes running. LOL. But, a fan will work, if Dr. Neville isn’t available.

Timmm

I agree su0000, Michael Muhney must have taken Adam’s testosterone when he cleaned out his dressing room!

Chelsea has great skin and is very wholesome looking.

Chelsea ruined your life Adam, take Connor and leave the country! I look forward to Dr. Simon Neville

Harry
Harry

WHY is she so mad at him?

Timmm
Timmm

I guess she was tired of being lied too and his Paragon Project mislead her to believe Chelsea 2.0 was a huge hit! I dont know, she should have taken a minute or two to think this through because she still loves Adam and she believes Adam should help her raise Connor.

If you have never seen this dynamic actor before, you are in for quite a treat. I have literally watched every soap over the past 40 years (sans “Passions” — I do have my standards) and have to say that this man is one of the ten best actors I have ever seen.

FINALLY, wonderful news for soap fans.

Harry
Harry

Thank you, Carolina. I do so agree with you.

This is my first with Michael and it seems like everyone on this site is excited about MEK and it makes me anxious! I’m happy for the AMC fans!

Timmm, Tad Martin (Michael) was a very naughty, naughty boy. But his blasé personality….the furor in which he pursued girls, women, ladies, in general, did not turn the audience off. He was a womanizer with a bag of tricks in his repertoire. He used these tricks to the best of his ability….thus, the moniker, Tad the Cad. Something about Michael’s personality, which obviously transmitted into Tad, endeared him to his fans and consequently, was forgiven his antics. He did leave his roguish ways behind, as he grew older….but that mischievousness was ever-present. I hope we will see some of that risqué behavior in Dr. Neville.

Thrilled for MEK to be back on my screen. I’m all for a chem test between MEK and Eileen Davidson. Ashley needs a man and a story.

BINGO!

CeeCee

I can’t wait to see ‘Tad’. Yeah, he will always be Tad to me. He still looks so good; so handsome.
TPTB should not have killed Cady off. Imagine if she were still part of the cast? She and Michael could have reunited. If only!!

Timmm

We never saw Kelly’s body! However, it seems she burned all bridges leading back to Y&R.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, Timmm. I can’ blame Cady. I thought her talent was wasted on Y&R. She was treated shabbily. However, as an actress for countless years, she ought to have developed a modicum of thick-skin…..she should be more than prepared to receive negative comments/retorts.
None of us should ever burn any bridges. That is the best advice my Dad ever gave me. ” Speak your mind with courtesy and respect; defend your ground with wisdom; and, be compassionate” .
Later.

Timmm
Timmm

Yes, she was crapped on! I liked her alot better than the first Kelly. She should have had thicker skin but who knows unless you are in her skin. I give her the benefit of the doubt. Your dad was/is a very wise man dear Cee!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, Timmm. I shall tell him. Luv-ya
PS. You’re right. No one knows another’s heart, unless one walks in her/his shoes.

I’m so glad to see Michael E. Knight that I don’t care if he’s just there to read the phone book. He’s my second favorite daytime actor ever (after Van Hansis). I hope t’s not hard to get with the program Y&R. I never did learn all the storylines to GH and had to give up. It’s too busy! But I got into Days easily and I’m leaving since Sonny and now Will are gone. I have that hour free and I’m pleased to put it toward My Michael E. knight!

Gwen is so stupid. He’s using you girl!!!!!!

condittybaby
condittybaby

I think it is safe to say that A LOT of us have tended, or STILL DO tend to do some “stupid things” in the name of love. Whether Gwen’s very own version of her very own love for Neil could be painted as “WRONG”, or not… That’s not the point, like I have read and heard about many others talking about on even other websites with any shenanigans about soap opera’s, just as well. In my opinion at the very least, Gwen isn’t “stupid”. What she is doing — the actions that she are taking, are all in the name of love — as crazy of actions that they may appear to be to the viewing and or to the involved “eyes” and “ears”. To call even a character “stupid” for generally doing roundabout things that sometimes us in “real-lif” do, I don’t think that that is a fair judgement. Yes, I get that doing things like helping someone keep this deep and dark secret from others around them… Or helping someone hide information from the rest of the town… Or withholding actual people from other people (just like what is being done with Hillary, right now) for such of really any amount of time… It can all be looked at as “stupid” and or “dumb” and or “asinine”… And pretty much that would usually all be because what people do, it hurts others. And it actually hurts and affects the masterminds of any “devious plans”, as well. Because at least through what I know and have been through throughout my entire life so far, I know all too well that *KHARMA* usually DOES come back to bite you in the buttocks. At the very least, to me, also known as… “You GET, what you GIVE…” That’s the whole moral story of life anyways, at least in my eyes… If you GIVE your heart out to somebody, you will RECEIVE their heart right back. If you give people good-intended smiles, eventually people will give you good-intended smiles back. If you GIVE the love of your life a lot of pain through infidelity and cheating on them, then you may and or will essentially deal with your very own situation where YOU were the one that will have been cheated on. If you GIVE sadness, sadness will creep back up on you in return sometime and or some day through some futuristic life situation. In this case with what Gwen and Neil are doing, holding Hillary hostage and whatnot. Of course we already know even as viewers what THEY have already done and what THEY are doing right now. There is nothing even we as viewers can change the way any what situation has already taken place amongst all of the camaraderie that IS of Genoa City. And I guess what we have to do, is learn how to ACCEPT that these characters have been and ARE still trapped right in the middle of partaking and or doing all of… Read more »

WOW!!

AHHH!!! This post could have been written by Gwen herself.
What Neal is doing is beyond creepy! It’s something only a very very disturbed person would do. He has also committed at least three felonies and needs to be put in a criminally insane institution.
That Gwen is acting like what Neil is doing is completely understandable and forgivable is CRAZY!!!!! I shudder to think that any woman could possibly relate to Gwen.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Harry.
Harry, that’s what I mentioned too, a few posts ago. Covering up one crime by committing so many more doing it, is worse than the original crime, such a no-side-up-travesty. The travesty is a travesty unto itself.

I hope Michael E Knights character gets together with Jill!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Why? Jill is a virago. MEK is a god. She deserves to be with Colin. I can’t stand Jill. She slept with Jack while married to his father, John. Plus, she’s not sophisticated enough for Neville/Michael.
I do see the newest doctor with Ashley.

Timmm

I think the character of Jill died when Katherine died! Jill couldnt even connect with Tristan Rogers and he is magical! No, keep MEK away from Jill.

Harry
Harry

I agree with Sonja and Timm.

I am glad MEK allowed his hair to go silver. I hate it when these over forty year old men dye their hair monochromatic black or dark brown. (Yes, I am looking at you, Maurice Benard).
I think MEK looks more handsome with the salt and pepper hair and it brings out his beautiful eyes.

Harry
Harry

Opps, meant to write that I agree with Cee Cee and Timm.
Not that it matters, but Jill is in her late sixties and Michael E Knight is in his mid fifties.
I don’t mind an age disparity, however, I do mind it when we’re supposed to pretend that that age disparity does not exist. For instance, Nancy Lee Grahn (GH’s Alexis) is a decade older than her on screen lover played by William deVry (Julian) and it shows. However, we are supposed to believe Alexis is a few years younger than Julian.
I cannot wait until Thursday! MEK—it has been wayyyyyy too long!

I also, am very excited that MEK is back on a soap!! Early Xmas present .. Michael made a personal appearance at a home show in my home town in ’92. He was very nice and funny when he spoke to the crowd. Afterwards, he signed autographs for everyone that wanted one. He was very nice to everyone I saw him interact with and talked with each person a bit. He is as good looking in person. I hope Y & R keeps him on and offers him a contract. I have read rumors Sean Carrigan may be leaving , so they may need a Doc.. One can only hope. Can’t wait till Thursday!

CeeCee

I am such a fan, as well, Leslye. Michael has a few movies floating out there, but, my favorite is DATE WITH AN ANGEL. I was much younger when I watched it, but I fell instantly in love. Such a beautiful guy….funny, too.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV! Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Photo: ATI

 

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

Photo: ATI

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Photo: ATI

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
