This sounds wonderful, but I’d like to say honestly I am sure confused, you get this kind of news and it gives one hope that this whole concept is going to work and it’s exciting. Then you get news that the network is shutting down for hiatus even earlier than originally announced, right on the heels of the shows now only two a week instead of four. What are the ratings looking like? I am feeling frustrated as a long time fan who really looked forward to this then went through the let down then miracles of miracles, the shows… Read more »

The shows have stopped filming just one week earlier than the scheduled hiatus. The ‘ratings’ on Hulu are fantastic. Both shows are consistently in the top 5 from everything I have read. You will not miss any shows…they have enough shows ‘in the can’ to air through September. Writers are continuing to write – so when they come back from the hiatus in August (hopeful the union disagreement can be worked out by then) they will not miss a beat. We won’t notice anything as viewers. I hope you keep watching…

1st question. Why does OLTL get treated like a unwanted step child. I keep seeing all these posts about AMC but not OLTL.

Gee…when you post this question on this post – yes, most people would assume you are talking about this post. And when you ask a question – yes, most people would assume you are asking for an opinion. If you weren’t talking about this post and weren’t actually wanting a response to your question – WHY are you here and WHY did you post it?

Sounds good. Get Carolyn Hennesy back if you can, but doing it solo is okay. As much as I loved the old podcast, new episodes went from once a month to once a year.

Jeff Kwatinetz sure has brass ones to subject himself to the wrath of the fans. I hope everyone is polite. Good for him! Taking the bull by the horns and talking to us directly. IMO, it shows just how much he is invested in making this thing work. I am very much looking forward to tuning in. I will try to call in as well. Mr. Kwatinetz, you truly are my hero. You have done what most of us thought was impossible. You have brought back Agnes Nixon’s shows and are a guardian of her legacy. I know with all… Read more »

YES! I can hardly wait for this to air. People, keep watching both shows. It would be great if we could watch enough to suggest that maybe hour-length shows are warranted to make up for the 2-days of each show instead of 5 days each show. I think 2-days each show 1-hour shows would work. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

CTwildheart

Your suggestion unfortunately, would put them right back where they were originally. I believe (and maybe someone can ask Jeff) that if we keep watching both shows (which I do!) eventually they will be increased either in length or episodes shown each week.

Yes remember to spread the word that we need our views back all of them & new ones too. Numbers need to continuously stay up in the 500,000’s. This is the number that shows the advertiser’s we are serious about our shows & if you can start purchasing products from these sponsors & let them know why you are taking the time to purchase their product. They are paying for our shows to be on. If everyone can get 1 person back or a new one to watch we will be in a position to ask for things. We as… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
