When i was growing up in the 1960s there were over a dozen soaps to choose from plus a nice There was a great variety in daytime…and none of the soaps felt the same. General Hospital and The Doctors were medical dramas…some of it was so real people wrote in for medical advice! Edge Of Night was daytimes answer to Perry Mason…courtroom drama with lots of crimes and mysteries! Dark Shadows was the late afternoon gothic horror soap about vampires, witches and werewolves! Strange Paradise was about a wealthy man who used black magic to bring his wife back from… Read more »

plus a nice selection of game shows and there was only three networks and a few other stations, and it was all free! Primetime had comedy, variety shows, science fiction westerns, Peyton Place and so much more! Far less news and talk shows and i not much in the reality department except for documentaries but even those were entertaining!(some how this part of my comments ended up missing when i posted! Dang it!)

Plus we needed all this overuse of cussing, sex and nudity, or any gory violence to be entertained! It was all fun and entertaining that the whole family could sit together and watch, and for many hours a day we were able to escape the problems of the real world! TV,cable and online shows have some really good entertaining offerings but none are as great as the good old days of television…the 1960s!

With these shows no longer bound by FCC/network content restrictions,they’re becoming more realistic. And that includes stronger language than we usually hear on daytime tv,without the bleeps.

It’s because it’s coming from mouths of people we’ve all grown up with on tv that’s shocking to long time viewers. The characters are finally getting the chance to say and do things they never got to on ABC.

I,for one,welcome these changes and will keep watching until it’s,god forbid,cancelled again.

Rich…i wasnt judging the new reboots…i was in the hospital and havent seen them yet…my comments was just mainly about 1960s tv including daytime! Daytime was so much better back then because we were lucky to have more choices on way fewer stations compared to whats offered today and it was free!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
