In the recap, you will see Bianca Montgomery’s rape played by Eden Riegel,  Angie reuniting with Jesse (Darnell Williams) decades after she believed he was dead, Brooke (Julia Barr) and Adam (David Canary) coming together, J.R’s . gunshot in the finale, Dixie  (Cady McClain) holding a picture of Tad, and if you watch carefully you may learn who was shot, plus some new footage!  Watch it after the jump and then let us know, what you thought of the video recap that catches you up on life in Pine Valley?

Wow! WOW…. Woah….

Stunning…. Tears of incredulousness… “Welcome to Pine Valley”.

My first real soap… 25-30 years ago. is back.

if in fact… it’s Tad that may have perished… ala’ that gun shot… ? hearing his voice-over Loving AMC… was fantastic. it’s relevant that it’s his voice doing the nuAMC opening… and/or publicity for.

Brooke… Dixie… Angie… Bianca….

these women leading nuAMC…. plus, Opal…. how grand is that.

it’s going to be fantastic… going from the reel above.

you know… the ramifications… when and if Dixie’s son…. JR…. is “revealed”…

talk about STORY,, for the chandler empire… haunted portrayal…. Tad was a resounding grounding…. for JR. with Dixie gone… a humane balance… if you will…. this would be a coupe… story…to… resonate throughout Pine Valley.

This is beautiful. I wasn’t a regular AMC viewer and I’m in tears after watching this. I will be a regular viewing starting April 29th.

Thank you to everyone who is making this happen.

I’m in tears over the loss of David and Cara’s baby, UNLESS (I’m hoping!) it’s just David’s paranoid nightmare just before being released from prison! 🙁 🙂

Patrick

NO! ? No….

say it isn’t true….

Dr. David Hayward… deserves “LOVE”….

if that’s what makes him so enigmatic…. “flawed”… cared about….

i hope his relationship with Angie is further explored in the nuAMC…

i just wish… Kyrstal was back…. to further develop… and intrigue us along… with Dr. David…. w/ Cara…. WHO IS MARVELOUS.

It seems Tad was the one most likely shot…interesting to see how this all plays out. Hope the new writers pull it off!

Beautifully done! So looking forward to watching AMC when it returns and becoming a new fan of the show.

I don’t think its Tad. He has not said he would not return to AMC. So he may still come back. He might be in a coma in some hospital, if he was shot.

I hope it’s not Tad, but then again I can’t think of any character that I WOULD want it to be. I love them all. Bring it on!

This video is amazingly beautiful. Loved seeing some of the beloved performers from the past. I just knew they would do location shots in the Stamford area. So much more authentic for Pine Valley than the ones ABC did in L.A.

Looking forward to seeing Ms Morgan & Mr Williams back together, they truly are special on screen.

SUPER! Thank you Michael Fairman. You really bind everything together; I love your site and read it all the time. However I may feel from time to time about the success/lack of success about this endeavor, I know the viewers can count on you for the complete story! But must say that I was deeply touched by this video and was sitting at my computer crying. I do hope this is a success but as always, hope if it is, it will inspire the networks to return it to TV.

The video was great (but I liked OLTL video better). I really wish Tad was going to be part of this. There are really 4 people that should be part of it that are not. Tad, Erica, Kendall, and Jack. I know some are doing other projects but I think they should try to make it work for the fans.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”
