Today’s a big day for the online soap, The Bay.   Starting Tuesday September 6th on Amazon Prime, you can catch-up on past episodes when it re-releases 28 of them by way of two 14-episode seasons with remastered versions added with never before seen footage.

The first 14 episodes are available for streaming now, followed by 14 additional episodes slated to be released later this fall.  In addition, look for a new beginning to The Bay’s story on Amazon Prime.

Former General Hospital EP Wendy Riche, who has joined The Bay team as Executive Consultant and is now an executive producer, told On-Air On-Soaps about the series streaming on Amazon Prime: “It’s a great way for people who have seen The Bay for people to see it again and refresh their memories, and it’s a wonderful way to introduce it to new people. ”

While you can binge The Bay and see all the action and the characters again, a new season will be coming viewers way soon.  EP and creator, Gregori Martin related, “We have a new writing team (Ex-GH’s Karen Harris, EX-DAYS. Anne Schoettle, EX-ATWT Julie Poll) which I am really excited about, and a new acting coach, and this all came from Wendy Riche.  We have a new music score, too.  Wendy is bringing the magic of GH to The Bay.”  Riche added, “There is a lot of magic at The Bay that people will want to be involved in.  I am glad to be there. I love Gregori, and the cast.”

Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge B&B, and John, The Bay) was enthusiastic about The Bay’s future and the addition of Riche to the team and upcoming season: “Wendy is bringing such a different dimension to the stuff we have been doing and we are changing that.  You are going to find out all the different layers of my character, and it gives me the opportunity to do something I have never done before.   You know my history, and you know Wendy’s history.  We have a lot more freedom, and expression and ability to build these shows.   When you see us after the next season has aired, you will go, ‘Whoa!'”

The series is also available to non-Amazon Prime members  for purchase for $9.99 per season or $1.99 per episode on Amazon Instant Video. The Bay will be free to Amazon Prime members in the following territories; USA, UK-Ireland, Germany, Austria, and Japan.

I just started watching “The Bay” on Amazon and I like what I’ve seen so far.

It was very difficult to find, though, as it did not show up when I did a search for “The Bay”. I had to do several different searches including “The Bay The Series” and “The Bay The Soap Opera” before it showed up on the Amazon Prime search screen results on my TV.

I tried searching for it on Amazon Prime with no luck at all. I checked each and every result that had The Bay in it . Can you tell me how you found it? Thanks!

Go to search specifically on Amazon Video. Type in “the Bay” then on the drop down bar select Prime and there it is.

What a shame that ALL MY CHILDREN couldn’t make it as an on-line series thanks to the incredible mishandling of both ABC and Prospect Park – before anyone yells at me and says “get over it” I AM now over it but I still wish things could have worked out
differently.

It’s such a fabulous show. Every soap fan needs to be watching and supporting it.

Not bad. I’ll keep watching to see if it holds my interest. But OMG since Ronn Moss left B&B I had forgotten how bad his one note acting was.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
