I got to see a few early episodes from the 60s and the show still holds up today…they were more down to earth and charater driven than the remaining four soaps except for TDs remaing few years on the air…i wish other soaps like AW and Edge Of Night still had all there episodes…the 60s and 70s…imo…was when most soaps were at their best…wish a cable channel like POP carried the show so the current soap viewers who werent around back then could see how great soaps used to be…jmho!!!

It is well known anyone who was back then will say, quite often–

Ohh the good old days everything was so much better than now..
Ohhh the good the days, that was when TV was worth watching .. lol

Thanks for the info! I saw your post on another site as well and have been watching episodes from Dec 4th since then. 🙂 Unfortunately, we don’t get RetroTV on DirecTV – it looks as if NYC has it now though so, perhaps, when we change carriers, I’ll be lucky enough to see it. I’d love to see classic Doctor Who on there as well!

I have been watching sporadically. Acting is good by most, with the exception of the person playing Karen Werner. Wow, shes bad. But I hope it succeeds, as it would be nice to see other soaps rerun on this network. Looking forward to the 70s episodes.

I was in high school when The Doctors premiered and it was (and still is) my favorite soap! It was on when I got home from school. General Hospital debuted about the same time, I think. I got hooked on that too (remember Jessie and Phil?) but The Doctors was simply more sophisticated in its story lines and character development. I happened to find a few clips on YouTube last night and was pleased to see it is being broadcast on RETRO TV. I live in Cincinnati and am a Time Warner subscriber, but they don’t have it. What can I do? Is there access online to any episodes?

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Glad to hear there is more Arturo in Genoa City and Jason is on contract at the top-rated daytime drama series? Comment below.
