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

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.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
