Erica's doppelganger was Jane Campbell...Jane McIntyre seems like a new character

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.

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

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.)

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.

You've never seen a porn ad before, have you? LOL

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.

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. Sad

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.

Her last name was Campbell.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Funny, LLANVIEW76, but that is Joe's hand you are referencing. Leora's is on his knee.

LOL

Nikki Smith could certainly cuss up a storm if allowed to. You know good and well she's not gone forever.
