TOLN Releases One Life to Live Video Story Recap Featuring Epic Feud Of Viki & Dorian!

Courtesy/TOLN

One Life to Live fans are in for a real treat because The Online Network (TOLN) has just released this juicy video clip package to get you up to date at where we are in the story since the 43-year-old soap was cancelled by ABC, and it aired it’s final episode and sensational cliffhanger back in January of 2012.

Now, fast forward to April of 2013 and Llanview is back, featuring so many of your beloved favorites when it’s first new episode is revealed on April 29th on Hulu.com, HuluPlus and iTunes!

To get you caught up and ready, six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) provides the narration and re-introduces us to the people in Viki’s life and her family   It starts with classic clips of the best supercouple on daytime, Viki Banks and her nemeisis, Dorian Cramer Lord (Robin Strasser).  From there, we see Viki’s on- again off -again relationship over the years with Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), whom when OLTL went off the air, Clint had proposed to Viki!

Then, the excitement picks up from there with the “Tale of the Two Todds”, and how the Todd (Roger Howarth) and Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) story played out right till the end of the ABC version of the series, where we saw that Victor Jr. was very much alive!  Plus, we learn of Nora (Hillary B. Smith) and Bo’s (Robert S. Woods) relationship, their son Matthew (Then Eddie Alderson, now Robert Gorrie) and Bo’s son, David Vickers (Tuc Watkins)!  In addition, brand new footage from the new One Life is part of the clips!  And oh yes, Viki also tells the story of Natalie (Melissa Archer) and John (Michael Easton) and says they were “star-crossed” lovers!

Watch “The Best of One Life to Live” video story recap below, and let us know if you were as excited to see all these amazing clips?  And, how do you think the story will begin to unfold when One Life resumes in just a few weeks?

Oh my goodness I am so excited I was excited before but now it’s to the tenth power!!! I am very excited to see my show again. I hope this means Victor is back I want to see him reunite wih Dani and Tea and knock Todd the heck out with a right hook! He has so much potential in stories from his crazy love with Tea and his feuding with his beautiful daughter Dani to his great scenes with Roger Howarth to when they explore the history of him/ Victor. I also want to see where Danis story goes… Read more »

I am kind of surprised that Prospect Park was allowed to use clips from ABC.
Michael, Do you know if Soapnet will be able to continue to show OLTL & AMC repeats once the new episodes start?

AJ
Guest

internet only. Besides, we need to make sure that people can only watch the shows online.. the more hits/downloads.. the better! I encourage everyone to watch each episode a couple of times on different services for more ‘unique’ hits, the fans will decide if this is a success or not, don’t think we’ll get a 3rd life to live.

The repeats I am talking about are the ones that Soapnet still shows early in the morning. 6AM here on the east coast for OLTL. It appears the episodes are 2 to 3 years old. I fully understand that all of the new episodes will be internet only.

I wouldve loved a feud between brothers Todd(RH) and Victor(TSJ) similar to Viki and Dorian! If only everything couldve worked out btween abc and pp…and if TSJ had returned full time…both OLTL and GH i feel couldve benfit greatly ratingwise with a crossover storyline…but thats old news now and the both shows must go one!

Love, love, love the recap. I can’t wait till the 29th. Fitting that ES narrated it, she did a wonderful job. Enjoyed watching the last scenes of when OLTL was first cancelled, a colossal mistake it was. Still get choked up when Bob Woods he said I love you to his red…could barely get the words out.

Yay… 🙂

Can’t wait for the 29th. Will be watching. So thankful we our soap got another chance, should have never been cancelled. Just hope they re-cast John McBain as he is such an important character in the show. Although we will miss Michael Easton, I am sure in time we can adjust to a new actor.

Really good trailer/recap got me even more hyped then I was for April 29th but it would had been 10 times better had they shown the scene of Victor alive right after they showed John arresting Todd.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Kelly Ripa Launches Podcast on SiriusXM

Former All My Children stars Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) can add launching a podcast to their extensive resume through their production company, Milojo Productions, and Sirius XM.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.

So, will you check out Kelly’s new podcast? Hope she has some All My Children alum on as guests? Comment below.
