TOLN Releases a Pretty Effin’ Amazing Trailer For The New All My Children (VIDEO)


 




Okay, okay, I will be the first to admit it. I was more than a little cynical when I first learned Prospect Park was making a second stab at bringing back All My Children and One Life to Live. There, are you happy? 
 
With only a matter of days left before the soaps return on April 29, I  have to say, I am hella impressed with what I'm seeing so far! Today, TOLN revealed a trailer video for the new season of All My Children. Although I will argue anyone down that it was only my pollen allergies, a couple of tears were a' shed.

My DARLING, BIANCA (Eden Riegel)!!!!! ANGIE (Debbi Morgan)!!! DIXIE (Cady McClain)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! PETEY (Rob Wilson)!!! Did I mention, PETEY (Rob Wilson)??? Watch the video after the jump.

    He’s a hottie. Didn’t know he acted too.

    I didn’t watch AMC, but it looks good. Very soapy! I hope it works out, because it could be the start of a good trend.

    Maybe we’d even get ATWT back.

    OH my God, this looks awesome! I have to say people use to rip into GL & ATWT about the “new” camera shooting…well it’s the same technology here with AMC & OLTL. Maybe better perfected now but hey P&G led the way with handheld cameras giving us more real outdoor shooting which by the end of ATWT they were doing a very good job. I actually learned to like it because it did give you a sense of the community. All My Children is going to be the sh&t! :bigsmile: :beer:

    That was pretty good.

    The casting of Rob Wilson might just be brilliant. My mom, who hasn’t been interested in soaps since OLTL pulled that Eterna crap, is interested in AMC because she likes Rob on The Price is Right.

    Everything looks fantastic, and with those location shoots, it looks on par with those well produced, foreign sudsers! Even the new characters look pretty intriguing! The town actually looks like a real living town! So Jr. popped Marissa?! How will he ever come back from murdering someone?

    Counting down until 4/29!

    For ATWT and GL vs AMC/OLTL, I think it’s a question of know-how and budget. Neither ATWT nor GL had much of a budget toward the end and it showed!

    It looks as if AMC and OLTL are managing a decent budget wisely because the production values look Fab from everything I’ve seen so far.

    Handheld cameras are nothing new although HD cameras may be more accessible now because the price of certain technology has definitely dropped in cost but I’m not sure that these new shows are even using handheld. HD digital cameras definitely but handheld? I’m not so sure about that.

    Also GL in particular over utilized that shaky camera style that that Blair Witch movie made all the rage but ER (the TV show) did it long before BW did and ER did it effectively to show the chaos of the Emergency Room. GL did it in a gratuitous fashion that was an utter distraction to storytelling…at least to me.

    I think AMC and OLTL, whatever style of shooting they’re using, it looks Terrific!

    I agree with angrierblackerman.

    I get the feeling from David and Bianca’s snippets that Marissa has died, and they’re both still dealing with her loss. Just a guess, though.

    And the new filming style also reminds me a bit of some British/German soaps. It looks pretty good.

    That wasn’t a “style choice”. That was just terrible camera operators and bad execution.

    This looks so good and the cancellation is probably what AMC needed to brush all the years of awfulness away.

    I usually hate time jumps (Desperate Housewives, Alias) because within a few episodes the status quo is back to normal, but this looks like they’ve set people up with conflicts that will drive the show forward.

    The whole Jesse/Zack thing seems very Taken (Liam Neeson)to me. Go on, Jesse, go kick some ass.

    Now I see why they need Doc Joe back. Everyone in town is getting punched.

    Looks like Marissa dies that could be why both Bianca and David are standing near a tombstone but for the life of me I can’t see why they would kill another one of David’s children (this makes 3 dead daughters) and how they would be able to ever really untaint JR in AJ’s eyes.

    I was trying to be generous (LOL). I still think budget had a role in how those shows were shot. And yes, the technology makes HD digital cameras much more accessible (and cheaper) than they were years ago. When budgets are constructed this makes a difference, even in having the money left in the budget to hire the talented camera operators vs. DIY (*coughs Wheeler*)

    [quote=ghalltheway]It is just not the same. I don’t know who half of the young people are. It looks like either Kendall died or Erica died.[/quote]

    Nope, not Erica or Kendall…Marissa died.

That’s beyond harsh, even for some like evil Dr. Dave. I will say though, this looks like good story for him & Bianca, whether I like him loosing another child or not.

    I’m really curious to why Zach would be in PV w/o Kendall & the boys. It jus doesn’t make sense for the type of relationship was created. It better be good.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with Cara & David.

    The trailer overall looks so good :).

    My guess though in regards to Marissa dying is that she died in an accident or got sick and died because I can’t find a good enough reason why JR would be out of jail already. You don’t do only 5 years (probably less after catching him and a trial) for killing someone in cold blood.

    From your keyboard to the Soap God’s ears let this be the case! I hated Marissa from day one and it didn’t matter who was playing her. And don’t feel too bad for David…I am guessing Cara’s big secret is that she had his baby and is hiding it away from David.

    Given where they’re probably going with Marissa, I would have loved to see Bianca/ ER stick around a bit longer and have a story with VI/David. Their friendship/pseudo father-daughter relationship after her rape was the saving grace of that story. I hated when they destroyed that relationship for the sake of making Babe his daughter.

    I agree. I think that perhaps what JR did and all the other stuff overwhelmed Marissa sending her into depression. She may have taken her own life. Bianca and David probably blame JR for everything.

    We won’t know until 4/29…I don’t think I can wait that long!

    Marissa is dead. Zach & Kendall are divorced, hence Kendall not being with him. Tad is in a coma and that is who Dixie is sobbing over by the bedside.

    I thought JR was supposed to be in a coma. If it’s Tad instead that’s fine by me. The character should’ve been put in a coma ten years ago. Love MEk but the character of Tad needs a rest and a reboot. As for Marissa being dead… She was pointless from day one. One Babe was enough. Good riddance.

    The show looks fantastic. We’ve come a long way from shaky cams of Peapack.

    I’m loving me some David and Cara pent-up PASSION, as well as his dysfunctional family angst that never seems to end! What has me excited most though is Griffin apoplectic about David’s hold on Cara “after all these years.” That’s something they can build on despite the angst! :)
