The strange case of ONE LIFE TO LIVE

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Yesterday I was watching and comparing the same episode of ONE LIFE TO LIVE from 1979, the one with Karen Wolek at the Court...and I found strange differences....

The episode from "A daytime to remember" has scenes that you can't see in the episode of "SoapNet" and the episode from "SoapNet" has scenes that you can't see in the episode of "A daytime to remember"...

And the strangest thing is at the end of the episode, when Karen says "Now, now are you satisfied?"...in the episode from " A Daytime to remember" we can see Karen, then Viki's face....and then Tina and Greg Huddleston....and in the episode of "SoapNet" we can see Karen, Viki's face....and Tina and Greg in a different angle of the camera!!!!!

So....are there two versions of the same episode????? And Why didn't SoapNet and ABC (A Daytime to remember) broadcast the complete episode????

And as I Know, in 1979, ABC broadcast the same final scenes that we can see in the SoapNet episode ( I mean the same shot of Tina and Greg)

Everything is really strange....does anyone know why??????

DTR was only 30 mins so I think ABC redited episodes and put pivital scenes together for impact

Since the episode ended with the confession, is it possible the opening tag in the following episode redid parts of the confession and featured additional reaction shots? Maybe when reediting the episodes they combined shots from both episodes?

But in the case of this episode, DTR broadcast this episode in two days!

And in fact the only different shot is the one with Tina and Greg...I think both episodes (DTR and Soapnet) are in youtube

SoapNet episode minute 35.39
