Thank you for posting this wonderful classic episode of One Life to Live. What a magnificent cast. What magnificent story telling. I cried all over again.

A mediator? That’s the best they could do. Spice it up B&B. He’s comes in as a mediator then gets involved in a classic ‘Bell I love triangles’ twist. Eric/the mediator/Charlie. Now THAT’S a triangle. And he’s a gold digger LOL.

Yes,please give him more of a permanent role. Please bring a new guy or two into Los Angeles and shake things up! I had the biggest crush on him back in the day. I had to do a double take, I would not have recognized him without the prompting. Still handsome.

Thanks for including the OLTL episode in this article. I only got thru the first segment and I am starting to tear up. What a treat to see “Dr Larry” and “Rev Carpenter”. You reminded me of how wonderful that series was. Michael, thanks again. Sincerely, Mark (who started watching OLTL around 1970)

Loved Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, including his role as “Sully.”

Very excited to see Joe back on daytime television and I do hope he’ll get to stay for a while. This is going to be great!

There was no way I could get through that episode; just the opening scene had me emotionally wrecked. That was THE most heartbreaking episode, well, along with Stone’s death on GH…can’t watch those scenes without losing it.

What a nostalgic look. Michael Storm, aka Larry Wolek was so good in the role. Dr. Wolek was SUCH a great character; just the essence of goodness. Michael Storm is going on 80! Wow!

Looking forward to Joe Lando. Wonder if they’ll expand his role; he’s leading man material. Maybe for Taylor??? Unless he winds up sentencing her down the road for shooting Bill.

I love Joe Lando, nice choice! Please give him a permanent role and you would gain lots of viewers!

I am thrilled to have Joe Lando join B&B! Loved him as Jake years ago and even followed him to Dr Quinn and The Secret Circle. It would be great to have him longer than recurring. He’s been gone way too long!

Love Joe Lando and remember his stint on GL but liked him best as Sully on Dr. Quinn. He won’t look the same without his big knife and pony tail. Can just see him slamming his knife down, instead of the gavel.

I didn’t watch Dr. Quinn… but I LOVED his long hair on OLTL. But, ya know, time marches on… Sigh.

Hi, Violet! 😉

If you never watched Dr Quinn, you really missed out on an epic series! All episodes are on YouTube, start from the beginning, ‘The Pilot’, you’ll be hooked instantly. There is an entire DQ universe waiting for you!! LOL!!

Hahah; thanks fandq. I’ll try and check the show out one day but I’m binge-ing too many shows to keep up with now! Have to pace myself and squeeze them in between “life.” 😉 (But I’ll keep it in mind.)

Fantastic to see Joe back. Good thinking B&B couldn’t have picked anyone better.

B&B is indeed lucky to have signed Joe Lando on! I would love see his role develop into something more permanent,!

I think it is the other way around: Joe is lucky to have gotten some work… In some article he recently said he had auditioned a lot, never getting any role. He prayed to god and B&B offered him the role of the judge Craig M in that soap. I think it will greatly depend on Joe’s acting qualities how long they are going to keep him…

Is this one of those castings that get us excited but then let down as it is but a glorified cameo? I mean, there really is no more room if we genuinely want to continue the endless (!!!) and now derivative wedding carousel ride of Liam, Steffy and Hope.

Not to mention the uselessness of the scenes where all Zoe and Emma o is smirk at each other and instigate useless fights with each other. And Thorne needs to keep his big mouth shut and mind his own business. Granted, Bill will never win a father of the year award, but Thorne has no right to talk to a lawyer or anyone for that matter about any of this. And on a side note, I say bring on more of Sally and Wyatt. I know he is a bit of a goof, but I think him and Sally are a good fit

Justin and Chrishell were last seen together in public last week on November 14th at a Hollywood Reporter-sponsored pre-Golden Globes party.  Reps for both actors have you to share statements or make a comment.

Hartley and Stause tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch back in October 28th, 201, which was four years to the day after they met.

As daytime fans know, Justin and Chrishell met when they were both part of the soap opera community.  Justin was last on daytime as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.  Hartley has one child, Isabella, from a previous marriage to another soap actress, Lindsay Korman, who he met when they both were on the defunct NBC soap Passions. Justin and Lindsay were married for 8 years.
