All My Children was HUGE success after yesterday’s premiere!

The soap opera who had its return since its  final ABC episode aired in September of 2011, landed in the number one slot on Hulu and on iTunes with its first all-new episode, illustrating the popularity of this iconic soap brand, and that there is no audience more loyal than the soap fans!

Today, AMC posted its second new episode which picks right up where the story left off!  And on AMC today, there is plenty of danger, sadness, romance in bloom, and the return of Eden Riegel as Bianca Montgomery, Thorsten Kaye as Zach Slater, and Ray MacDonnell as Joe Martin!

We had our favorites in the episode which included Eden Riegel, and Cady McClain, who once again showed us what a dynamite actress she is.   As the story plays: Jesse is scared out of his mind with an MIA Cassandra, newbies Pete and Celia are major in story, as are Miranda and AJ, and more!

If you haven’t watched the latest episode on Hulu or iTunes today, you can check it out here after the jump! Let us know how you are catching the all-new episodes? Then, tell us what you thought of today’s episode, and if you are enjoying the new AMC!

I am watching HULU. I liked today better than the 1st one. I think the 1st was to introduce us to the new cast members. I have to learn them there are so many. Today was easier. Got to figure out if Tad or JR is in the hospital bed & if JR then where is Tad? I love the way ads are run. Just enough time for a snack break or other things HA!HA! . I have to say on a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 9.

Superfantabulous! Cool beans! I am loving it! I agree with a comment I read earlier…only way it could be better is to bring back Erika (I grew up watching her…), Kendall, Tad (but I think Tad is the one in the hospital bed…or maybe Jamie)…but all in all I am enjoying it tremendously. Thanks Propect Park and Hulu!

I am going to enjoy the soaps on-line more than I did on network tv simply because they are modern, and so real the life; not campy soapy …

(and I get both soaps on my TV, so no problem ..

Very strange–watching on Hulu Plus and the sound is off by one second from the movement of their mouths. Same thing yesterday.

of the two nu shows…. it’s definately OLTL that has me 100% intrigued…

AMC with the soras’ simply needs to get us caught up in the story…

and they-re off to the races.

OLTL returned virtually their entire cast, w/ the exception of Starr and John.

Most of the cornerstones of AMC are gone: Eric, Kendall, Greenlee, Ryan, Tad. Most of the stories rotated around those characters, everyone that returned are secondary characters.. with the exception of Adam.

During the ABC run, AMC was shifting to make Kendall, Ryan and Greenlee the headliners.. and PP got none of them. That’s what the show is missing, their leads.

Thught day two was great! Good balance of everything. Getting to know these characters again and the newbies. Happy to see that both AMC and OLTL are doing so well in terms of Hulu popularity! I have been using Hulu for years and love the anytime convenience.

Michael… do you know if they are making the necessary number of views?

AMC gets kudos for coming out swinging but they are battling several ABC lackluster years and bad casting. It feels like they are going to be more 21st century As the World Turns and I hope so. We need a modern day, familial drama with soapy overbearing mothers like Opal and lots of characters staring at framed photos of deceased family members. Good Luck. I’ll try to watch. I think McPherson could be a good fit for this reboot. My only quibble is that the opening song sounds too much like Wheeler’s Guiding Light reboot opening.

Honestly, I am having to get used to having the show back and available on demand! I almost forgot to watch it today, lol. But I am loving it. It was just as good today as yesterday, and I expect it will continue to get better as we find out what has happened over the past five years in soap time. I need to sign up for Hulu Plus, so I can watch via my Roku on the TV, but just seeing all my old friends from AMC is wonderful.

Enjoyed the show. A bit too much story is given to AJ and Miranda . Teenage stories are just not interesting to me. I hope younger people are watching and liking the young story lines so I am not enduring these stories for nothing. My husband is watching AMC now and actually told me to be quiet because David is talking. This is the man that thought I had lost my mind when I cried because ABC canceled the show. We watched AMC using the iPad, huluplus and a HDMI cable to view on our television. I sure hope AMC… Read more »

i think we can expect that AJ and Miranda will be featured quite a bit…

yeah, it’s trying and a chore at times for the younger stories..

doesn’t Miranda, remind you of Erica at that age? LOL… pouty… tigress… hot about town… sooner than you know…. Bianca has a handful.

ditto on Dr. David Hayward… if in fact it’s Marissa…. his hardened evenmoreso “soul” is fodder for his epic talent.

To me there are more young actors than the regulars that have been on for years.. I like the story with Jessie trying to surprise Angie with a surprise visit from her daughter Cassandra. Who is missing now! I like seeing Joe Martin,Dixie,Brook,Opal,adam. And who was Dixie visting in the hospital? I have an idea but I don’t want to give it away. This
is what I am enjoying about AMC. I am just getting back to watching AMC. Haven’t watched it in quite a while.

LOVED IT 🙂 i only watched AMC after Lindsay Hartley started, but quickly grew to love it (i’m an NBC soap fan). Really loving the new format. And the show production value is awesome! I admit, i also love that the eppis are only 30mins. Really hope they get a good following 🙂

My thoughts: Tad is dead. JR is in the coma. And can we have some more screen time with Pete! =) Wow that guy is ripped!

Lainee
Guest
Lainee

I am hoping that it is Tad in the coma because it needs more life than it has right now…Tad and/or Erika right now would be superfantabulous but for now I am just enjoying Angie and Jessie, Brooke and Adam, Bianca…taking it one day at a time…

B.J.

Was that Adam and Brooke’s home that A.J. entered the living room removing his clothes? Is some young cast member going to have to remove their clothes at least once an episode… no matter where they are? That was the most ridiculous scene I’ve seen in a long time, on any soap.

I freely admit I don’t like A.J., so that may add to my reaction to this, but I really can’t imagine who or why they came up with that scene. 🙁

Still hoping it will improve each day and I’m glad it’s back.

I agree…I wish AJ would keep his clothes on! The clothes coming off in the living room was nothing compared to the nudity in the bedroom! I have two sons and they would have taken there shirt off coming through the front door and dropped it somewhere on the way to the kitchen. However, I would have never allowed a girl to just go up to their bedroom. That whole nude AJ playing a guitar was just way too much.

I am kind of worried that since it is now online and not on TV that it will be “anything goes.” I enjoyed it as daytime TV where it was “clean.” Taking it one day at a time until I decide I cannot take the language or the lack of clothing.

I have to put it out their…. right quick…. AMC was so much better.

when the whole show… as it were.. is ALL soras’ed… 5 years…

you have to get the stories going….

it wasn’t even so much about expectation. it was melding newbies with original and move forward….

whew! it’s all good….

HECK! for this new Venture… and supporting nuAMC – Prospect Park –

I am watching the commerials….. thank you hulu.com

I am glad AMC is back and OLTL. Oltl has an unfair advantage of really getting its main chnaracters/actors back and their big ones. AMC really had to go down the list and the top regular characgters/acgtors are not back and the two biggest probably Tad and Erica are no where to be seen. Well at least there are some allusions to Tad but not to Erica that is sad = surely AMC could have done a photo or something maybe done something to at least hint in the grave is Erica and not Marissa or even have Bianca on… Read more »

I apologize for saying Erica Kane was in a coma. I wasn’t paying attention at the moment eating my hamburger while watching online. Must be someone else in the hospital bed.
I don’t believe they have said anything about Erica Kane yet.

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.
