I'd love to see Tamara Tunie on a reunion livestream but I seriously doubt Alan is up for that level of truth telling or that tea. Don't confuse character with actress, Tamara is not Jessica!

Soap fans sometimes like to put words in people's mouths. I'd actually like to hear from Meg Ryan. She might actually have valid reasons for keeping a distance. Not everyone had the same experience. 

Alan would be out if his depth with most of the people mentioned. Why can't these guys produce the show and get a knowledgeable host like Roger Newcomb?

Alan has had 0 Black actors from ATWT on his live streams and I have questions.

 

Also, Meg Ryan directs and produces a fair amount of television these days so her perspective on the medium may have changed.

I got questions too about him not having any of the black actors/actresses doing his live-streams. Tamara Tunie? Peter Parros? Napiera Groves? The actor who played Isaac? Lauren B Martin? and others who've worked over the years for P&G and other soaps too.

He had 1 actress on one of the GL reunions, I think that was it though, over how many months?  That is why I say that he is simply out of his depth with some actors. It's his show and he's free to do as he chooses but I don't expect much from him and kind of side-eye him at the same time.

I think it was during one of the charity reunions and Amelia Marshall popped up on it. 

 

Edit : Oh that's right he had Yvonna Kopacz Wright, Lawrence Saint Victor, and the others who played the Boudreaux family.

Yeah, I wasn't sure, that's why I specifically said ATWT, not P&G in that initial post because I haven't seen many of the GL ones.

Sorry if this one was already posted. I can't remember if this is the one that popped up earlier this year or not.

And P&G is way too stupid and thoughtless to capitalize on mentions like those.

 

All these series like Punky Brewster and Saved By The Bell, Karate Kid/Cobra Kai, The Doctors and Dark Shadows managing to have some presence on television and film, while P&G is still out there devaluing their own titles.

Just. stupid.

It's been a full decade since the two of the longest-running television series in the history of the medium have ever seen been officially screened, broadcast, streamed, etc. It's shameful.

The SoapClassics company was a brief respite, having put out collections of ATWT and GL and streaming on their online platform. The SoaopClassics company wanted to continue to do so but, as I understand it, couldn't secure permission from P&G to extend the agreement.

 

The folks who wanted to make excuses for P&G (the same people who always make excuses for these mediocre soap production companies) at the time, claimed that it would take years for P&G to digitize a great deal of their episodes. Well, it's been years now, hasn't it? Imagine if P&G had actually allowed Soap classics to continue what they were doing, digitize episodes and stream them? Wouldn't there have been a significant amount of episodes in digital format?
