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!!!

I have seen some of the old days soaps, they are/were not good ..
It is well known anyone who was back then will say, quite often–
Ahhh the good old days.. that is when everything was the best..
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

I hope you enjoy the older soap- The Doctors, if it makes you smile and happy, that is all that matters !

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?

OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Says: “I Just Think The Best Actors In The World Are On Daytime Television”

As everyone knows by now, we have always been a huge fan of the work of Renée Elise Goldsberry starting back to 2003 and her beginnings on One Life to Live in her twice Daytime Emmy-nominated performances as Evangeline Williamson.

Deadline has recently released their New Hollywood Podcast and Goldsberry was a guest on the most recent episode.  While she fielded questions from the hosts about her life pre and post-Hamilton, the topic of her time on the soaps was bantered about,  Renée stood proud with the daytime community and their talent and unbelievable work ethic and how they are not given the credit they deserve.

When talking about One Life to Live, Goldsberry stated: “I learned my acting chops on that show, because we have so much work. I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television ”

In explaining to the hosts how soaps are shot and the pace in which the actor’s are asked to perform, she related: “We take three months to film an hour and a half movie, but soap actors. shoot six hours of television a week. They’re just really talented. The stories are so broad, and they always have to continue to defend their character and some kind of really crazy situations.”
