What was the reaction from members of the soap  press on One Life to Live’s sex scene between same-sex partners, Kyle and Fish?  Nelson Branco in his latest Suds Report for TV Guide Canada sang the deserved praises of Daytime Emmy winner, Ron Carlivati ‘s beautifully written show, and moment! Here are a few excerpt from Branco’s round-up.

Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey simply offers, “I like that One Life didn’t make a big deal of Fish and Kyle’s love scene. It was almost identical to Gigi and Schuyler’s, right down to the candles and the post-romp gushiness. Kish are just another couple on the show, as they should be. I also liked that the episode had lots of Stacy in it, which meant I could fast-forward and watch the whole thing in about 25 minutes.”

On Air On Soaps, Michael Fairman reminds us how important this soap moment was. “In my 20 years covering daytime, I felt Kish’s love scene was a huge step forward for the soaps, and for the representation of the LGBT community. And the Pièce de résistance? We got to see two men in bed … together and they even snuggled! Hankies!”

Let us know what you felt about Kish’s breakthrough sex scene!

I felt the “Kish” scene could not have been handled any better. Kudos to ABC for having the guts to allow this on OLTL. I have always been a CBS fan and now am a loyal follower of OLTL. It’s just two people making love, nothing more. Great Job!!!!!!!!


it was totally repulsive. i am so glad I can fast forward through anything to do with them. i didn’t mind it until they got to the bed scene. It was so unnatural, so gross. I am convinced that is why my favorite soaps ratings have dropped. most of America does not want to see this.


Gross…? A man making out with other man is a gross thing? How & why?


I have been trying to find out who sang the song in that clip. “I need to feel you breathing” Not sure if that is the name of the song but is part of the lyrics. Does anyone know so I can buy it?


I thought the scene was really great. ABC has been handling this storyline very well, and the pairing of Kyle and Fish (Kish) has been mostly accepted well by fans. The song played during Kyle and Fish love scene was My Confession by Rie Sinclair, it’s available to download on iTunes. I congratulate Brett and Scott for everything they have put into the relationship of Kish so far and look forward to their relationship in the future!


I agree with you. They were the reason that I watched OLTL, but since they are gone,,,


I just heard about this storyline….I haven’t watched soaps since I was a preschool kid with my stay at home mom. Years later, OLTL has a new fan in me. How refreshing…a storyline that shows a gay relationship on the same level as a straight relationship. I wish there had been something like this when I was growing up a lonely gay kid in straight middle America thinking that I was the only one like me. Kudos to Ron Carlivati for letting their relationship develop and be the wonderful thing that it can be! ( Scott Evans is a great… Read more »

I’ll keep you posted on any details. “Jackson” in Port Charles…who would have thought it? Let me, and ABC, know what you think about it!”

DAYS Alum Jensen Ackles on ‘The Winchesters’ Inability to Find New Home is a Case of ‘Unfortunate Timing’

Former Supernatural, Big Sky, and Days of our Lives star, Jensen Ackles (ex-Dean, ex-Beau, ex-Eric) took to social media on Saturday when the news broke that his series, The Winchesters, in which he executive produced, has run out of options to find a new home.

The show which aired for one season on the CW was a prequel to Supernatural.   In an update, The Winchesters producing studio, Warner Bros, attempted to find another network or streaming partner to move forward with the series after its cancellation.

Now comes word that all avenues have been exhausted.  All this, even though a #SavetheWinchesters campaign led by Ackles, himself, was attempted to bring some attention and heat on the show.

Jensen expressed his ‘thanks’ to the viewers and cited the current WGA writer’s strike as one of the main contributing factors to making the search for a new home for the series extremely daunting.

Ackles shared: “To all of you who watched, followed, and supported this story, THANK YOU. And to all those who brought this show to life…I couldn’t be more proud of what we all did together. But as they say…timing is everything. With a massive Network shift coupled with an industry strike…welp…that’s some unfortunate timing. Sleep well dear  @WinchestersOnCW…until we meet again. Somewhere down the road.”


So, did you watch The Winchesters? Do you hope it can someday return? What did you think about the sentiments shared by Jensen Ackles? Comment below.
