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!!!

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?

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

To the great team Harper Collins for believing in me and working incredibly hard. There still working incredibly hard during these times. What a ride!!!”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?

So, will there be a spot for some seat-jumping, horror-filled, adventure type of series when the nominations are revealed for the 47th annual Daytime Emmys?  (As fans know, the Daytime Emmys originally scheduled for June have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  NATAS has said that is currently exploring options for this year as how to and when they might present the awards.  As for when the nominations will be announced, we will bring you the updated information once it has become available as judging is currently underway.)

Now below, check out episode 3 of Evil Touch and Death Squad and then let us know via the comment section below what you thought of them.
