Log in to Reply cord2012 March 11, 2013 Yeah, OLTL’s cast looks a little sparse even though they only have four fewer contract players than AMC. It’ll be interesting to see where the writers take both shows. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott March 11, 2013 So excited! There’s my baby Josh Kelly! Love him! :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: Log in to Reply gslam March 11, 2013 Let’s not be reading into things regarding the photos, now. Whether you like one or the other is purely personal opinion. Both shows got the ROYAL treatment when it came to lighting, wardrobe, and styling. There was no favoritism regarding these shoots. OLTL was always the darker, grittier show of the two, so it makes sense that their cast photo is darker. I can’t wait! Log in to Reply MsAgentProvocateur1 March 11, 2013 [quote=alstonboy4315]Why do they have that chile who plays NuDestiny dressed like a fairground stripper? [/quote] LOL. Yeah, I’m ambivalent to the way she’s outfitted. I think I understand what they’re going for (provocative pose) but I think it’s a bit over the top. It’s just a shame that Robin Strasser and Hilary Bailey Smith are missing. Perhaps it was a scheduling conflict that caused their absence but it’s a shame as it is truly noticeable. I don’t know whether PP thinks about this or not but if a picture speaks a thousand words, they should have added Shenaz Treasury and the actor who plays Vimal. If this picture were to go up on Hulu, first time viewers might have seen a diverse cast in the photo and perhaps been intrigued enough to give it a try. I know when I peruse Netflix for a movie/TV show, my interest in piqued whenever I see a truly diverse cast. On the other hand, AMC’s photo looks GREAT! It looks like one of those Editorial photo shoots– the kind featured in Vanity Fair and Vogue! Log in to Reply appleridge March 11, 2013 Robin Strasser was Ill Hillary B Smith was shooting Venice ST (Rama) may have signed a contract after the cast pic was taken Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon March 11, 2013 I’m very excited about both shows coming back. Re the pics: That slit on Ms. Slezak’s dress is maybe a bit too high. She does have very good legs. I wonder if the shows will keep the daytime soap opera look or whether they’ll look more glossy, like the primetime shows. Log in to Reply GatesBear March 11, 2013 I wonder if they’ll go with completely different theme songs, or if they’ll remain the same, this is very exciting!!! can’t wait. Log in to Reply stefanstavros March 11, 2013 The theme song (intros) is something I thought about, too. Are they allowed to use the same openings? Anybody know? Log in to Reply Ferrari517 March 11, 2013 That OLTL picture looks like a porn ad. That woman on the right has her legs spread so far apart I can see her unborn children. Log in to Reply MsAgentProvocateur1 March 11, 2013 [quote=appleridge]Robin Strasser was Ill Hillary B Smith was shooting Venice ST (Rama) may have signed a contract after the cast pic was taken[/quote] I understand. This doesn’t have to be the definitive picture for the revamped OLTL anyway. They reserve the right to update as they like. I made the statement based on what I’ve read about PP wanting to build on the shows already loyal following. Just my opinion that if the cast photo goes up on Hulu or iTunes, a diverse cast photo might capture the attention of groups of viewers who might not have thought of giving the show a try when it was on broadcast TV. People are very visual. Log in to Reply tmac March 11, 2013 I notice that Roger Howarth is listed as a cast member, but not Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson. Does that mean Todd will be staying in Llanview but John and Starr are free to go back to Port Charles? Log in to Reply soapbaby March 11, 2013 OLTL photo = YIKES. AMC photo = SPLENDID. Log in to Reply appleridge March 11, 2013 OLTL teen scene photo with Matt Jack Dani & Destiny but cant find a way to post it Log in to Reply fmat55 March 11, 2013 I read somewhere that OLTL is going to be edgier than it was on TV. Rumors say Destiny will be hooking to support her child and Matthew has been a deadbeat dad. Wonder if we’ll get to hear Vicki “cuss” now that they aren’t on network TV. Log in to Reply bishbay March 11, 2013 I am fond of Kassie de Paiva, the way people are fond of their kooky but well-meaning cousins. But dear God, Kassie–couldn’t you see what they were going for in this photo? Couldn’t you turn off the Big Smile and give us a little smolder? Predictably, La Slezak nails it. Log in to Reply t dog March 11, 2013 How exciting! Roughly two years and two weeks after ABC gave the iconic shows, stars, staff, Agnes Nixon, and us, the fans, a giant middle finger and the shaft, they will be returning. Even though I’ve known it was real for a while now, having a premiere date that is 50 days away just makes me smile. These shows, or as my grandmother would say stories, need our support now more than ever. So much is hinging on their success. I was a casual watcher of OLTL prior to its cancelation where I would generally watch the first little bit if it was interesting after AMC, I will now be watching both fervently. I suggest that everyone else does too. These sister soaps have so much potential. It reminds me of AMC’s final episode where Angie, Jesse, David and Cara discuss second chances and how they should be taken advantage of. Angie says that “One day our family and friends will die and they won’t be back. One day they’ll be gone for good.” Let’s make sure that day never comes for our soap families.

Other than that, Miss Erika is GIVING IT! WERK!!! Log in to Reply brettyboy March 11, 2013 VERY excited, a little dissapointed that Bobbie Eakes won’t be returning to AMC though. Log in to Reply bobbyew March 11, 2013 So excited! Can’t wait till this comes to fruition. So proud of Prospet Park for giving us a new series of on line television. As fans we can’t complain. Hopefully if it works they can find a network to put it on. Log in to Reply acespencer March 11, 2013 I am intrigued and hope that they go for a more edgy and Dallas or Revenge type feel. Branch out from the same old crap and we can see the shows back on cable shortly. I see them getting picked up by Lifetime, Bravo, WE, Style, or maybe even TNT! Imagine TNT getting bold and jumping into the soap world! Lord knows it would be better to see USA or TNT offering an hour per day four days a week or heck even rotate the shows and do three shows of each per week with Friday’s as a double up! Then they could run a marathon on Friday mornings before the Friday afternoon shows air! It would perfect!

Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 March 11, 2013 Anyone else notice in the OLTL picture that Clint and Blair are holding hands and standing extremely close…will this mean they are now together??? It just would make sense to put Viki and Clint together (if they were together) When the show ended, they were the heart of the show… Log in to Reply david46208 March 11, 2013 Back in the saddle! Log in to Reply Llanview76 March 11, 2013 What is this novelty with hearing Victoria Lord or Dorian Cramer swear? I mean, it’s not in character for either one of Llanviews ladies. Erik Log in to Reply kmayne March 11, 2013 Does anyone know if the soaps will be available in Canada for free? I watched AMC for years and would watch it if I can. But at present I could not afford another expense. Best of luck to AMC and OLTL Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 March 11, 2013 I will also agree with the majority…AMC’s cast photo is Vogue or Vanity Fair and works while OLTL is trying to be Maxim, but it doesn’t quite work and I’m more of a OLTL fan. I do like that they put the cast in a bar setting…would have been more interesting to have them in action poses like one cast photo did with The Sopranos during one season when they were all positioned around a poker table. Dannii looks like she don’t know where she is in that hoochie mamma outfit and Destiny kind of looks like a hooker, which makes sense if she is going to be one on the show. Oh well, I am still excited nonetheless! I am still the biggest fan! Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 March 11, 2013 Does anyone remember Erica’s twin Jane’s last name? It wasn’t McIntyre was it? I see a Jane McIntyre listed in the cast and don’t remember Jane’s last name. Wouldn’t want that character back. Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 March 11, 2013 Erica’s doppelganger was Jane Campbell…Jane McIntyre seems like a new character Log in to Reply Daniel St. John March 11, 2013 I like the OLTL picture…it is going for an edgier look which is fine with me especially with La Slezak giving us some serious diva of a certain age sexy realness. It’s like Viki has revealed a new alter…Rikki, a femme fatale who marries for money and power who likes to steal other women’s men.

Best of luck to AMC and OLTL[/quote] All we know so far is that Hulu is not available in Canada (which is the only free option), and iTunes is charging, so it seems Canadian fans will have to pay to see it. (Me? I’ll read the recaps. I have no faith in the longevity of this Propect Park venture.) Log in to Reply gslam March 11, 2013 [quote=Ferrari517]That OLTL picture looks like a porn ad.

Log in to Reply curacaoman March 12, 2013 How will people who live outside the US be able to watch the shows? Log in to Reply dellygrim March 12, 2013 curacaoman, from what i’ve read there is currently nothing in place for canadian, or an non-us fans to watch the episodes legally.wi i haven’t seen anything official but i’ve scoured for details, all of which indicated that the episodes for now will only be available on hulu/plus and itunes-us. hopefully this is misinformation or at least sometthing being worked on. Log in to Reply DanielAvery March 12, 2013 The background of the OLTL picture is green-screened/CGI’d, so obviously they chose that look (dark wood, etc.) on purpose to coordinate with the darker wardrobe of the actors. Still, I agree with the majority saying the AMC photo is a better “look” because it’s a “real” setting. Maybe the lighter clothing and backdrop on the AMC photo just gives it a “larger” look in general. On OLTL: Clever of Kassie to be the only woman wearing red in a sea of blacks and grays. Could this be a signal that she will finally get her due as one of the leading ladies of the show? I can’t imagine smother-mother Tea allowing her ‘Daniella’ to be seen in that outfit, much less go out of the house in it. I guess times have changed. Destiny…I can’t even.

Log in to Reply angrierblackerman March 12, 2013 Love All My Children’s “Vanity Fair” pics, everyone looks so sexy and slick! OLTL’s cast looks a bit threadbare, and the colors make it look like some basement…all that’s missing is the pic of dogs playing poker, lol. I Already can’t stand Destiny…calling it now, she will be a hated character. The actress reminds me of Lisa Bonet, who I couldn’t stand, lol! Still excited about the shows, and can’t wait to see the first eppys! Log in to Reply pjc722 March 12, 2013 To me, AMC, always seemed like the story of NEW MONEY … I know, AUnt Phoebe had old money, but Palmer, Erica, Adam and most of the rest was new dough! And OLTL, seemed to be centered around old money from the LORDS and the Buchannans… even though some of you would make the comment that the latter were new found wealth in oil… but their last name added to the OLD MONEY. So the opulence of one photo… AMC… talks to that new money ideal and OLTL’s talks to old money. But I am surprised that after all this chatter about bringing the shows back… AND I WAS never really a fan of either… that so many negative comments are being made already and pointed some at specific actors just on their looks from a cast photo. Give it a chance, we all screamed for their return. At least wait until Day 2 before we rip into it. I plan to and if anyone has read my posts, they know I love to attack and praise a little. Log in to Reply pumpkin March 12, 2013 I can’t wait. I get Hulu Plus and netflex thru my blue ray player and internet. I switched to basic cable. This is the cheapest way for me to get all my shows when I want to watch. So with all, including the internet charge, it is still cheaper. I still like watching on my large tv screen. So I am good to go. Can’t wait. Log in to Reply Llanview76 March 12, 2013 I find it so interesting, the people who speculate the ad emulates porn…and here I was hoping for a Downton Abbey crowd. By the way, anyone notice where ALL MY CHILDREN’s Francessca James is putting her hand? Looks like Dr. Joe is finally going to have some sexual tension since Leora Sanders! Log in to Reply LisaM March 12, 2013 Is Gammie is still dressing the OLTL cast? She sucks OLTL always had the worst wardrobe of all ABC soaps. Gammie cant pick out nice outfits to save her life. She spends more time looking for costumes for her best friend Strasser. I could walk into an H&M or Dillards and pick out more sexy and edgier outfits for Destiny, Danielle, Matthew and Tea for this shoot for less than $200. PP needs to get a stylist to help her. Log in to Reply Yoryla March 12, 2013 The AMC cast photo looks AMAZING! It looks better than any of the network show’s cast photos have looked like in eons! I especially love Debbi Morgan – wow what a gorgeous woman. The OLTL cast photo looks good as a production-value standpoint, but why is it so small? Where is Dorian and Nora? And I have to say, that slit on Miss Viki’s dress goes a bit too up…starting to not look approriate for a woman her age and stature. Log in to Reply Fashionista March 12, 2013 after all the fuss only Todd is listed and not Starr or John?????? and where’s Bianca’s daughter Gabby with bio dad Zach? I assume Kendall who is not there has her boyz? Log in to Reply pjc722 March 12, 2013 Funny, LLANVIEW76, but that is Joe’s hand you are referencing. Leora’s is on his knee.
