Might Hallmark be a home for classic soap reruns or a revival of one of the classic titles?

Good idea! Would be great to watch the reruns since Hallmark runs other reruns. If they could revive the classic titles would be good, but if not, if they could do periodic movies of AMC, OLTL (and other soaps), with the cast and related storylines of these shows. I know so much depends on rights of the shows, money, pulling the casts together (as many as they could get), etc., but Hallmark may want to think about it since there is such a loyal fan base.

I have just set my DVR to record these shows. It will be so great to see some of the old AMC gang. Just wish Michael Knight was going to be part of the program.

I love Susan Lucci, she is a wonderful actress. I want to see Erica Kane on GH, that would be terrific. Too late to revive AMC and OLTL, ABC will not bring back AMC and OLTL, they will never admit there mistake.

I kicked the soap habit a long time ago, but became addicted again when Michael Knight
came to Y & R. I’m addicted again. I wish he would come back.
I hope I’m able to see the gang next week.

My mother wishes that Dimitri Merick -who ever that was – would be on the guest list. She used to record All My Children just for him. Then when he left the show my mother stopped watching on a daily basis.

Wonderful! It’s a start. I would love to see All My Children have an ending (after 40+ years) of faithful viewing. ABC/Disney owes us this, but I would be happy with anyone providing an end to our wonderful soap. Still waiting!

Had my interest until the mention of Rebecca Budig-no thanks. I wish her annoying, obnoxious character (Hayden) would disappear from Port Charles.

I can’t wait to to watch Susan Lucci and, the rest of the All My Children cast I have missed watching All My children so much!!! 🙂

I can’t wait to see Susan host the show and I can’t wait to see some of the All My Children cast, wish they would all be there. I am still missing and mourning for the show. I watch Devious Maids just so I can see her, hoping that will be back on too.

It will be wonderful to see Susan and the AMC team but we need the real AMC back in our homes or at least Susan Lucci back on the screen. It is a tough world out there in respect to work but Susan deserves after her years of dedication and loyalty to ABC and the daytime genre – unlike others she always kept AMC first, she didn’t leave AMC even though she did other projects (she was the first to do tv movie of the week as a daytime star and actually score huge ratings even against her more famous night time stars). If anyone saw Devious Maids while she was not Erica Kane she was hillarious. Really good.

Please air the Feb. 2, 2017 All My Children renunion again! I did not even know that this would be on the Hallmark Channel, or I would have recorded it on my DVR!

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
