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 the dead with disasterous results…she had to kill to stay alive! And then there were the family oriented soaps of Days Of Our Lives with the Hortons, Another World with the Mathews, As The World Turns with the Hughes, Guilding Light with the Bauers and One Life To Live with different families of ethnic backgrounds! So many great writers and wonderful actors and storylines! This was the best decade for soaps ever and im glad i was part of it! Todays daytime is all talk, and not enough action!

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!

The FaceBook is very inserting..
I wish that someday Dark Shadows, will be reanimated!!

With shows busting the chart with stories of ”
”Walking Dad” and ”Vampires”, I think Dark shadows would do well..

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
