Welcome to the One Life to Live Discussion Thread for the week of October 8th, 2007. It looks to be a great week on OLTL, as the judge decides custody of Tommy and Langston's secret is uncovered. Hope you enjoy your visit and are prepared to discuss the interworkings of Llanview, PA and OLTL. If so, then you're in the right place.



So let the discussion of the good, bad, and ugly that is Llanview, Pennsylvania & One Life to Live begin...

I don't think there's much to say, lol, other than the fact that OLTL has been so very consistently good lately! I love it almost as much as I love B&B at the moment! :D (but the old Y&R still wins over all of that :D)

I've enjoyed Marcie and Michael fighting -- I find Marcie more interesting. This is reminding me of what soap stories used to be about -- heartache, family torn apart and no stupid BS from someone the audience doesn't know or care for. I'm loving it!

Loved the show today!

OneRepublic rocked today. Love their new song. The little montage at the end worked well.

Kathy Brier. Deserves. A. EMMY!!!!! She was excellent today. The Tommy story continues to draw me in.

Langston coming to terms about her parents today had me on the verge of tears today. RS and the actress that plays Langston really played off well.

My heart broke for Marcie and Langston today. Marcie loves Tommy with all her heart and he's being taken away from her. She has every right to be pissed at Michael and her reaction was dead on. I know this Marcie and Tommy on the run s/l should be good. Kathy deserves an Emmy for this s/l.

Langston and Dorian had me in tears today. I mean her parents died a year and a half ago and that poor girl is just now coming to terms with it. I don't see how she was able to raise herself for so long.

Great show today!

I love this song! One Republic rocks!

I was watching on Soapnet..and loved the song too. It is on Timbaland's CD. The version on the show was without Timbaland. I kind of liked that version better than the one with Timbaland on it.

    • I haven't watched yet, but that sounds promising. Perhaps not having a personal history with her as he does with the P&G soaps actually helped in that he prepared better.
    • I was just listening to Marquee Moon randomly the other day. What an incredible song and artist. R.I.P.    
    • I was probably the only one in the target age range at the time who was impressed by that lol.  ATWT seemed to me like GL's older (I know, I know, GL was first by a long shot, but you wouldn't have known it going by the cast members who were on the show by then), stable, more popular sibling, even if that popularity was waning.  As other soaps disappointed me, that sense of consistency started to appeal to me.  Even though I never found ATWT compelling long-term whenever I tuned in in those years, and of course it had as much turmoil behind the scenes as the other network/sponsor-owned shows by then.
    • Lol didn’t they kinda do that when GT’s Phyllis dyed her hair blonde?
    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
