So this week on One Life to Live as the story unfolded, we got to see a little more revealed about the newest arrivals in Llanview, and the new characters who will be instrumental in the lives of some of the core characters!  You can catch this week’s episodes on Hulu and iTunes!

As the World Turns favorite, Paolo Seganti is  now playing Arturo Bandini on One Life with a connection and a past to the dead, Brianna Marland.   And this week, he seems to be taking an interest to Dani (Kelley Missal), or is he?  Who do you think Arturo really is, or what he is really wants in Llanview?

Amber Skye Noyes also debuted over the last few episodes of One Life as Michelle. The girl who gave Matthew (Robert Gorrie) a runaround, who he met on the Internet.  Jeffrey (Corbin Bleu) doesn’t trust her, but Matthew seems to be open to giving Michelle a second chance at proving herself. But what is her agenda and motive? True desire for Matthew? Or, something else?

Alice Callahan’s first appearances as Kate were about hitting the sheets with young Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta). After their romp, we learn Kate is Jack’s summer school teacher.  Then the duo’s heat for each other seems to continue even after we learn he is her student  … in the classroom!  She doesn’t seem to care and either does Jack! 

Som we ask you One Life fans and viewers, what are your impressions of Seganti, Noyes and Callahan? Thumbs up in their role? Or, not digging it?  Do you think these characters can provide and generate story for your favorites as well, and shake up the canvas? Let us know!

I like the summer school teacher storyline with Jack, don’t care about Michelle/Matthew storyline and Don’t want to see Dani getting involved with an older man. Would like Dani/Matthew back together tho’. Want more Natalie/Liam/John McBain story. Watched Classic OLTL this morning and it reminded me once again how much a creep Cutter is and how much John McBain & Natalie Buchanan go together!! JOLIE lives!

Not digging any of them just yet. Would rather see some former cast members brought back (those who are available/willing to come back). There are enough newbies for now. Still can’t get used to the new Matthew.

Love that the show is back regardless.

SPOILER ALERT! Arturo is really Walker Lawrence and he is going after Dani as revenge against Victor for taking over his identity years ago…Michelle will use Mathew: she’s involved in Llanviews drug ring! Also, Kate is more than a substitute teacher…she is involved heavily in porn, and is secretly taping her ‘moments’ with an unsuspecting Jack and selling it on the internet under the title ‘Dirty Lessons’. Im just kidding…lol! Im guessing but probably wrong…lol

Wasn’t Walker Lawrence a.k.a. Walker Flynn killed in the penthouse elevator crash by then Todd/Victor? Isn’t it soon time for Mitch Lawrence to show up? 😉

I like your other ideas. I’d like to see more blasts form the past. The writers need to crank things up a few notches. Lyndsay should call Nora’s radio talk show.

You should write for the show….what you just came up with is more interesting that what they’ve been depicting – submit your ideas, write them a script….these writers need help.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Thanks…current shows arent written by the new writers yet…hopefully when their episodes finally air we’ll see some improvement…i want to see Blair on the phone with Starr(even if Starr isnt shown) and i want Viki to sometimes mention her other children, especially Jessica…and i want Bo and co. learn more about Victors kidnapping, how is death was faked, and that Allison Perkins was involved. The storys are somewhat interesting and i loved that Tea/Dani scenes where they were in Tea’s kitchen but the show feels like the actors are working with half a script…a puzzle with missing pieces, imo.

Is hulu still showing new episodes of OLTL & AMC? I saw new episode of OLTL it was Chapter 9 Part 1&2 (that was last week).. Couldn’t see any this week for Chapter 10 part (1&2) , that would be next on OLTL…I phoned hulu yesterday and they said they didn’t have anymore new episodes right now.. Maybe when they get back from hitaus in Aug. they will resume with new episodes. Hulu said probably will in Aug. But right now all they have is the episodes we have already seen. What is your imput on this??????????????? Please reply!

I havent watched since last week myself…im going to tune in tonight after a family party and see if its new or not. i missed a few episodes be4.

I shouldve added to this: David would buy the porn tape but Dorian finds it, learns David is addicted to internet porn, plays the tape and gets an eyeful. Disgusted that it involves her nephew, she shows Blair who is shocked, beats Kates ass, and goes to jail but her lawyer Tea gets her out. Kate the porn star is exposed(pun intended) lol

@Keith – Mitch Lawrence is dead, shot by Natalie and for our sakes “DO NOT BRING HIM BACK!” I’ve watched OLTL episodes at the first of the week and they are right on schedule. This coming Monday will be the next installment for the week. I don’t believe that because they are on hiatus there won’t be any new shows until they get back-PLEASE keep tuned in!! I did read the new writers won’t have scenes until August when they come back from hiatus. I will keep watching, hope they bring John McBain back, even if they have to recast!!

I cut myself off too soon…i thought maybe even Walker had an unknown twin who sold Walkers identity against his knowledge, and its the twin Cane who was shot and allegedly killed by R.H. (Todd). Walker altered his own appearance and killed Cane(posing as Victor) framing Todd for it. At this time Victor was already kidnapped by this tatoo organization that Cane was a part of. Cane wanted more money but took over Victors life instead. Walker, looking for Victor, confronted him then realizing it was Cane, decided to have him murdered by framingTodd for it because he found out… Read more »

Good additions to the show. The writing seems to be getting better, but still would like some explantions to Starr and Jessica absence.

I love the s/l with Jack and his teacher Kate. She is hot and so far I am digging her and the acting is good. Even Andrew T’s acting is better with her IMO.
I don’t mind the new girl Michelle either but we will see where that goes. Paolo Seganti is just OK so far. I never watched him on ATWT but I always thought he was very handsome from photos but I don’t care for the greasy hair look.

I am sorry to say Michael, but as happy as I am that OLTL is breathing another life online, I couldn’t be more disappointed with the writing and the direction of the storylines. I am still commited to watching the show, but I feel there needs to be some constructive criticism to improve the show. Many people are talking about how the stories on both AMC and OLTL are faster paced. While I agree somewhat on AMC, which I think it doing a much better job at balancing the characters and stories, the same cannot be said at all about… Read more »

In other words the writing stinks.
Thank you moosebird for phrasing it so kindly.
Close-ups of an eloborate Drink being mixed at the bar do not a
storyline make.
I think the actors are all doing their best but they most certainly
deserve better working scripts than what’s been aired thus far.

Moosebird, I agree with you 100%. I love oLTL and will not give up on it. But the only stories I like are Bo/Nora and Vicki/Clint , Dorian/David (but not keen on the possiblilty of Rama and David. I like David being funny. The story about Victor is too dark, not enjoying it but Roger is doing a great job. The Michele story line has improved and I do really like Jeffrey. But the young generation takes up 90% of airtime. Hate Shelter- I read my email while the shelter scenes are on, and “Facebook.” I hope the new writers… Read more »

The younger gen and older gen are very well balanced..
The heavy good stories are revolve around the older vets..
Most the stories are great stories for the older and the vets..

the younger stories are with their children which also include the older.
The balance is good and more so with the older because they are also included in with younger stories besides their (the older) stories ….

Robert
Guest

Yes I kind of agree too. There is too much Shelter story line and it is not working. The citizens of Llanview and their actors deserve better. Please clean it up before it is too late.

So happy both shows are back. To all the negative nelly’s please keep it to yourselves. No one is forcing you to watch the shows if you are not happy with them.

I agree moosebird….su0000??????? Since the show’s EP JPepperman listened about the cusing sure wish she’d pay attention to the fans when we say SHELTER SUCKS!!!! I’ve not enjoyed one of those scenes.

Plus there are like NO SETS! Why in the world would Vicki and Nora be having dinner at that stupid SHELTER? Think about it — everyone is either at the apartment of Mathew and Dani or at SHELTER – it’s so absurd! Isn’t there any restaurant in town? A park nearby? A gas station? Even Mayberry had more interesting sights. On ALL MY CHILDREN, everyone is at Jane’s Coffee shop having coffee, or meeting for dinner at Jane’s Coffee Shop, or going for a jog and ending up at Jane’s Coffee Shop, or stopping for breakfast at Jane’s Coffee Shop,… Read more »

Arturo: I think he brings a needed energy and age to Llanview, but the hair–disgusting. I wouldn’t touch it, much less go near him sexually, and I am older and wiser than a twenty-something girl who doesn’t mind being kept. There is no way any law student would let a guy with that much vile pomade or dippity-doo near her. Gross. Michelle–boring as a box of hair. She seems insipid and dull and I can’t imagine there is anything else to her except a possible trip to psychotown, which is pretty boring in and of itself. The world’s best young… Read more »

You seem to have an obsession with hair…Aruro’s is disgusting and Michelle is as “boring as a box of hair.” What exactly is a box of hair??? LOL.

Honestly, I have to agree with Jessica. Sleeze ball equates greasy hair. Dry bread new girl = possible psycho. I won’t even touch the teacher – we know where that will go. But how can Jack just be prey when he was a bully before? Something feels off and the connection to OLTL feels broken. How many soap devices do I need to see that I’ve seen before? Do these writers have no imagination? Why take us down the disturbing roads, instead of focus on Jeffrey and Vicki uncovering corruption, or Destiny and Nat truly being torn between being moms… Read more »

I think “Michelle” has a lot of potential. The actress is a talented singer/songwriter. I hope she gets to sing on the show. I think her sound would fit in a lot better than the singer that has been at Shelter. “Michelle” could perform at the coffee shop. Found her own site: http://www.amberskyemusic.com

I like Arturo and Kate, but Michelle is sort of boring to me. I just don’t see the chemistry between her and Matthew. Kate’s whack, but Andrew, as Jack, seems to light up playing opposite her. I agree with the comments about the greasy hair on Paolo and hope it isn’t an indication of his character. He’s a great actor, so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.

Chaz

Giving it time. But, I as a first impression I am not bowled over by the Michelle character. Kate resembles Blair in a way which makes her involvement with Jack a little creepy (well, more so than just a student/teacher affair). Arturo, again…giving it time to see where they go with the character.

Marcia
Guest

Arturo just has that creep factor for me. I just think he’s a “dirty old man,” going after young girls. Michelle and Matthew, I really dislike this pairing . No chemistry. She is boring. Jack and Kate, the storyline is interesting. Teacher attracted to student, forbidden, yet it happens in real life and that’s a good storyline. I like Jeffrey with Destiny, really happy with them as a couple.

rebecca

I doubt moving forward Michelle is going to be boring; there’s probably a lot more to her and the storyline…

Since she’s pointed Matthew towards a mansion and doesn’t have much nice clothes to wear. I can bet she’s poor Cinderella wanting a rich prince. 🙂

I dont get it. The ONE thing viewers clamor for…and want…is vets. Established characters that viewers love and have a connection to. And they go ahead and hire actors from other shows in pointless, throwaway roles. WHY does no one involved in soap production get it??????

Wait, we have vets. I don’t mind new characters being brought on to give the people on the canvas story.

a lot of the vets have moved on…and/or away. IF the new shows are successful and they can afford to expand the cast perhaps more will join or be available. vets come and go even on ABC.

I think the new cast members are good enough actors. Not crazy about this story line with Jack and his teacher, but when Blair finds out……. Then it will get good. Speaking of Blair, since Roger is leaving the show, and the whole Tomas thing ended, Why not bring max back to Llanview? They have a lot of chemistry and history, besides Blair could use a good story line, that doesn’t include Todd. I like RH. & his character, but since He’s not staying, and they’ve been doing Todd and Blair for years it’s time for a return. And while… Read more »

I really, really don’t know why Ilene Kristen isn’t back as Roxie. I LOVED her character. She and Natalie are still tied together and had a good relationship. Roxie and Viki even formed a friendship. I think my only concern would be if the new writers could capture Roxie as well as RC did…but, I am pretty sure Ilene could bring her game to the table.

Even if she popped up once in a while it would make my day.

I watch the old episodes in the morning and I miss the old OLTL.. Vicki , Clint, Todd Blair Dorian and David, love them. But I the new Matt and Destiny don’t fly. There acting is fine, but I’m not convinced. Destiny was is high school having a baby, and now she’s drinking with Natalie? The ages don’t work and neither do the babies age. Why is Natale living alone, when they all lived in Llandfair happily raising their children? The loss of Mcbain is hugh. As is Starr.

The cancellations continue and now comes word via CBS they have chosen not to renew the legal courtroom drama, All Rise.

The final episode will air on Monday, May 24th.

 

All Rise has also seen plenty of drama behind the scenes this year when the All Rise creator and showrunner, Greg Spottiswood was ousted amid allegations of unprofessional conduct in the series’ writers room where he offered up offensive and racially insensitive language.

Since his departure, Dee Harris-Lawrence had served as the one and only showrunner for the series.

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
