Oh, how we love this clip from Retro TV’s upcoming relaunch of NBC’s classic soap opera The Doctors! 

Last week, Retro TV posted on their facebook page this teaser from the soap that featured James Pritchett (Dr. Matt Powers) and Elizabeth Hubbard (Althea Davis)  at the epicenter of it, but also featured the hot tempered and sexy Dr. Nick Bellini played by the late Gerald Gordon.  Gordon would later appear on General Hospital as Dr. Mark Dante!

In this classic clip from The Doctors, watch as the “Brotherhood of Healing” takes a drastic turn when Dr. Bellini has at it out with another doc in a hospital clinic office!  So much for the brotherhood!  It’s campy, cheesy, and just what the doctor ordered!

Watch it after the jump! Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing The Doctors again, and if you remember Gerald Gordon as Nick Bellini who fell in love with Althea Davis played by Elizabeth Hubbard!

Someone in the comments said the other Doctor he is fighting with is actor Terry Kiser who played Dr John Rice 1967-69. The video looks good like it was remastered

I thought i had retro but its retroplex…so i wont get to watch…dang…from the late 60s to late 70s this was one great hospital drama…the way a soap about a hosptial should be: great characters like Liz who took an experimental drug and nearly died when she almost fell off a hospital ledge…playboy Steve in his early years and married the neurotic Dr. Karen Werner, little Greta who became a bad seed child after being bitten by an infected rabbit, singer Lauri James who became a nurse because of fear of performing in public, the villians Dr. John Morrison and Dr. Ann Larimer…and Steves mother Mona, couples Matt and Maggie, Althea and Nick, Steve and Carolee, Toni and Mike, the often troubled son of Matt, and in the late 70s the Dancy family whose matriach Virgina died tragically along with Tom Carrol at a club fire during Sara and Mikes wedding reception at club forgot the name!!! Unfortunately this shows time slot changed, cast changes, production changes behind the scenes and not very interesting storylines cost the show viewers and it was cancelled…i came back to see it during its final year and wrote the show a story idea involving many cast members that they liked and told me so but added it was too late, informing me the show had been cancelled!!!

Wow..Maybe you should write a letter to GH, because they really need new and fresh ideas for decent and entertaining story lines..and Y&R which I finally stop watching. I will look for The Doctors on Retro’s.

Jimh(leave it to beaver) if you have retro tv as an OTA station as most markets do then just get a converter box and use another tv to watch. That’s what i’m going to do because TimeWarner dropped the station.

I love a staged fight, especially the kind that doesn’t require furniture to be knocked over. lol

Wish they would create an app so everyone could watch. They really need to put it online. I would pay to watch it!

I don’t think retrotv are allowed to put The Doctors online. Online media is not in their contract .

My only regret is my dear Mother and Aunt Annie are not here to watch this. It was the background of their lives as they raised my siblings and me! How they loved the show.

They don’t make ’em like that anymore!

Good Luck !!!!

When I was in 7th grade we took a tour of the NBC studio in in NYC. I saw Gerald Gordon in the lab. He waved to me and looked as if I recognized him. Will never forget that day.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
