Sounds great, but I’ll be on vacation. 🙁 So I may miss it. I’ll have to try to catch it on cbs.com when I return, but now they’re charging for videos after a few days.

I just wish DOOL realized to do something like this for their big celebration, too..

I was about to say the same thing when I saw your post. As much as I love event episodes during milestones on soaps, a simple doc with clips and interviews can be as entertaining and often a better treat for fans– I hope NBC is watching and considers it for Days.

Me too. I love DOOL and would be so happy to take a trip down memory lane in celebration of the big 5-0! Hopefully they have some special things planned.

Seems a lot to pack into a half hour. Should do an expanded version for the cabler POP where B&B rebroadcasts.

I used to love B&B. Cannot say the recycled stories, endless triangles/quadrangles, and near-incestuous connections so prevalent now are as exciting. Seems characters never grow or change, only repeat the same behaviors.

I like the show, but don’t like how they devote the whole show to one storyline. And same storyline day after day. And all the shots of L.A. are too much. I want to see the actors and story. I like a couple sightsee shots, but they have put way too many in lately. It’s not a travel program!

Congratulations to The Bold and The Beautiful on reaching this milestone! The documentary sounds nice, especially for persons like me who have never watched the show. It is an opportunity to learn what this show is all about. I do know that Joe Mascolo and Lauren Koslow have both been a part of this show. It would be interesting to see them in clips or to learn what their characters were all about. Both actors are now main characters on Days – which is what I watch. They may not have time in the documentary for what I want to… Read more »

By the way, I am very familiar with Susan Flannery because she once played Laura Horton on Days. I also know she was a big part of B&B for years, but is no longer there. Happy for Susan’s success on the show. Didn’t she win an Emmy while there? Anyway I wonder if working with the late Francis Reed had any impact on her work at B&B. I am sure Susan will be in the documentary – front and center.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
