I am so happy. I miss looking forward to a new episode but now I can’t wait for Monday to begin. And I am glad they are not waiting for sweeps week to pull out some good old fashion drama. As for the ranch all I can say is ” burn baby burn” Josh has done us a favour by having Sharon get rid of that eye sore that was decorated back in the 80’s. The reason Victor is so rich is because he never spend a dime on new furniture for his home or office in twenty years. But… Read more »

Sharon just did not like the curtains! They are not rebuilding it seems they are moving to a penthouse years ago Victor had one! I think old Adam protects Sharon and I do not think anyone is going to know for a while if ever about her redecorateing skills.

The Penthouse– they still have that thing in moth balls somewhere–wow. Well lets hope JFP found some money in petty cash to at least spring for a new paint job. I shouldn’t complain, over on Days, they use parts of other sets to make new ones and don’t even attempt to disguise it. There is one wall with cupboards on it that has been a lawyer’s office, the police conference room, the detective’s office and I think someone’s apartment. On Y&R the sets may be old but they are trying to pass off one set for another by changing the… Read more »

No I think it is a new set they are building and that picture that Sharon is standing in front of has been crooked for years. Lol!

I LOVE Sharon she is my favorite. I love her with Nick or even Adam she has so much chemistry with who ever she is with. Well except Victor. Poor girl looked like she hated being with him. It was not right what the guy who plays Victor did and said. Sharon has been through so much 🙂

This is starting out with a bang. But my Verdict is still out. I am a phick/phyl/nick fan. Past epis by JG show a bias against them. Phyl and Phick already setup and disliked by haters. The angst and disappointments of this year very difficult to bear. But It’s a soap I know. Both JG & JF are great professionals. I hope they will be open to fans opinions. i wish everyone great success.

Phyllis and Nick have no chemistry either does Chelsea and Adam. We never believed for a second Adam would stop loving Sharon. She is the love of HIS life and Nick is the LOVE of HER life! 🙂

Hopefully now if they re-make the Newman Ranch, it’ll be updated unlike the Carlton Home, which was restored as it previously was, aha.

AND I have Maura West to thank for this; she broke that horrific blue plate, which started it all, aha.

Poor Maura West Diane I loved on ATWT and liked her on Y&R but Eric B insisted his character sleep with Diane and the poor girl was killed. If we didn’t get rid of MAB Abby or Avery would be next Victor would sleep with. Isn’t it time for him to stop and settle down like Mrs. C and act his age. Nikki too. She is so stuck up

Looking forward to JFP and JG. I just recently began to watch again looking forwared to the new regime. I hope now that Sharon had come completely unhinged she will get the help she needs and we can see the “old Sharon” back and a reunion with Nick. I liked the ranch – is like going back home to your parent’s house – comfy! Of course, Victor will recover and there will be a wedding at the newly decorated ranch.

Michael

I hate to be the bearer of bad news MemphisBelle, but the Newman Ranch (at least the main house) will NOT be rebuilt at all. Victor and Nikki will end up moving into a new penthouse to live in.

But as we all know by now, Victor will go completely broke, Jack will have complete control at Newman Enterprises. So, Victor finally loses everything, his home, his company and the money he loves so much!

Well I have watched it several times and if you Phick fans think Sharon is going to interfere with them you are wrong I think it is going to be Adam who comes thru with support just my opinion the way Nick talks to Sharon no one tells somebody they deserve to lose everything who died and made him King. Everbody thinks Adam is like his dad sorry Nick is the chip off the nasty old block. I just want to get my sweet girl Sharon back.

I am not here to trash MAB. During her 5 year tenure, there was a lot of her work that I liked. However, the last six months or so have been mostly terrible. The show had no focus, no storylines, no couples to root for…it has been a meandering mess. Coming in, JFP and JG have much to clean up before their vision can take hold. With all that said, I could tell the difference from their very first air show. The stakes were higher. The drama was bigger. The pacing was exciting and moved with purpose. It is once… Read more »

“I also hope it will come out that Summer is actually Jack’s, and that Nick changed the tests during his own nervous breakdown after Cassie’s death. That is a dangling point that needs to be rectified”

I agree and I have been waiting for that for years myself. Nick was the only one to see the test results and he just claimed her as his. They could have some fun and give Summer to Jack and give Summer some really good story as a result.

Rae
Guest

I personally think the writers were right about making Nick Summer’s father because that whole storyline with Nick & Phyllis was classic hints the reason they were dubbed a “SUPERCOUPLE”

Mary SF

Personally I always thought Phyllis was too old for Nick. I know with all the SORASing over the years it is hard to tell who is supposed to be what age, but if Phyllis was with Christine, Danny and Paul’s generation, and Nicky was once the same age as Paul wouldn’t that make Phyllis old enough to be Nick’s mother?

kay/kay
Guest
kay/kay

I agree Mary the actress just turned 47 and Nick is 38 in real life not that Michele Stafford does not look good I never understood the character being all wobbly at the knees over a wet behind the ears school boy. Let’s face it for everybody saying Sharon & Phyllis sleep around a lot they do but I have never seen a male think more below the waist in everything he does then the character of Nick Newman so I would not be excited with another go around with Sharon & Nick. Phyllis the school boy is all yours.

No not really because if u read the back story it would tell u that phyllis was younger than Danny just like shes younger than jack

I hope that Adam will be accepted by the Newmans eventually. And despite what a lot of people think, I really like Adam and Chelsea together. I’m not impressed that they let Abby go and I don’t get why they keep writing April in and out of the show. Just make up your mind already!!! I really like the new April and hope they bring them both her and Abby back. I`m not a big fan of Sharon/Nick, but at the same time, I don’t think Phyllis is great with Nick either. Neither of them scream “super couple”. I agree… Read more »

Lol. Her name is Heather. April was her mother. With regards to Phyllis’ age…no, she is nowhere near old enough to be nick’s mother. Cricket was considerably younger than Paul…they were not from the same “generation.”. Paul was already an adult and sleeping with Nikki in 1978, whereas Cricket was still a teenybopper up until about 1989 when she was raped. The ages of people on this show are very skewed and screwed.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I agree the ages of characters are skewed it is hard to know who is supposed to be what age. But say if Phyllis was in her early 20’s when she hit Christine and Paul which was in the early 90’s and the character Nicholas was born in the late 80’s, Phyllis the character, technically would be old enough to his mother, not MS and JM. Also I think Paul and Nikki were teenagers when they hooked up in 78, not adults. But I’m postive Paul and April had Heather when they were teenagers, so Heather should be a lot… Read more »

I really really really hope that the new writing team can FIX freakin’ Sharon because this is the last straw for me. This is such a disgusting thing for her to do. I like Sharon Case, but I absolutely cannot stand what has happened to the character of Sharon. Every time she is on the screen and being snarky, I just want to punch that look off her face. I have not been this riled up over a character in a long time – usually it is some villain in a cable series. It’s just sickening to me that she… Read more »

I will admit the new regime has their work cut out for them having to undo a LOT of the damage Maria Arena Bell has done over the past close-to-5 years: lame one-note characters that nobody liked; un-necessary SORAS’ing of offspring to the point that it has become silly; plodding and muddled stories with no payoff; bad re-casts (Diane, Malcolm, the SORAS’ed Kyle). IMO, it can only go up from here!! However, knowing what happens today on “Y & R” re the court case against Phyllis makes me know that JG has done his homework! At least he is familiar… Read more »

I agree the SORASing of Summer has the silliest thing MAB did. During Phyllis’s trail Heather in her opening remarks said Phyllis hit Paul and Christine 17 years ago. If Summer is supposed to be 16 that would mean Phyllis was happily in love with Nick at the time, so why on earth would she go off the deep end and hit Christine because she saw her kissed Danny? Silly right? Do they think the viewers would fail to notice the two timelines don’t jive. It is so frustrating when they use history and changed history in the same storyline.… Read more »

MAB was probably the best executive producer at casting awesome talent in badly written or miscast roles. The list is long…Paul Leyden, Maura West, Eden Riegel, Debbi Morgan, Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, etc. But the one character I just can’t see any point to is Avery. I mean no disrespect to Jessica Collins, as she is a luminous and capable actress. But to be in a room where that chqrqcter was pitched or conceived would be just mind boggling…picture it…”Hey gang. We need a gorgeous blonde who has an antagonistic history with Phyllis and would be a great leading lady… Read more »

I totally agree Jessica Collins character should have been cut because she has no relevance what so ever everybody knows the supercouple always prevails#phick

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Photo: ABC Archives

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Photo: ABC

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.
