Recommended Posts

So I finally watched, wasn't sure I was going to, so glad I did, OMG the real Todd is here!!

I know! Not even a Todd fan. Ever. But today just highlighted what an empty promise Todd is anywhere away from Llanview.

That opening is pretty crappy though, LOL! They could have just went Degrassi and featured the younger characters dancing at Shelter while the older characters were in their respective environments.

Maybe something like this, one of my fave telenovela theme songs/openings, from Pecados Ajenos? (come to think of it, Tuc Watkins would be a natural for the uber-dramatic Ariel Lopez Padilla spin move, and Robin Strasser the Lupita Ferrer crazy diva eyes):

Thought these were good

Someone just posted on DC about the lack of "full frontal male nudity" on One Life to Live. How did a "little more risque" get to that? LOL

The shows were licensed by Prospect Park, not Vivid. LMAO

If @MrRobertScott and/or @Rob_Gorrie did full frontal, it would crash Al Gore's interwebs permanently. @AllMyChildren @OneLifeToLive

Who else thinks @EricNelsen will cause a spike in guitar sales? @allmychildren

Brian Frons is sitting in his bathrobe going, "But my research said people wanted to be informed...."

I thought it was great. Finally soap operas enter the 21st Century. Having the young characters talk like actual young people (where's my [[email protected]#$%^&*]/that's my baby momma/I'm not into cougars) and behave like young people (Dani getting trashed/Matthew not raising his kid/the implied BJ in the back room) makes all the difference. And having it actually seem like the real world and not soap world (the current events headlines in the newspaper/mentioning the story getting picked up by the AP) really makes it stand out.

I thought it was superb. Not what I would've written personally (I would have essentially made it porn with a plot TBH) but far above my expectations. I just hope that when the fraus complain that it's too raunchy and it's not the same that they don't listen, and if anything make it even raunchier.

dragonflies your link goes nowhere.

I liked the first episode, as it felt like little or no time passed. It was a bit raunchier, but nothing too bad then again I watch shows on Fx.

I wonder why Todd went to The Shelter (hate that new name) looking for Dani. Why'd he just assume she'd be there? Him going to Tea's house first would seem like the most sense

And the winner for worst OLTL opening ever is....this one! Satin Sheets opening is even wonderful compared to this. And, most of you know I hate the Satin Sheets opening.

No....I like the new one. And the Satin Sheets opening was not that bad...the music saved it. The visuals....eh that is a different story. LOL

I am still in disbelief that these shows are BACK!

I prefer OLTL's premiere over AMC. I just felt that there was more going on with OneLife tbh... and honestly, TSJ returning really did surprise me. I guess because he wasn't in any of the previews or in the cast photos, I didn't think there was any chance they could get him back. Can't wait to see him reunite with Tea and mourn the loss of their son.

I love the fresh dynamics- Dani spinning out of control, Matthew in a rebellious stage, newly-single Natty, etc.

The David Vickers "Boogeyman" scene was fantastic. LMAO. I ended up re-watching that scene 3 or 4 times. Nice to see Robin Strasser back on screen- still such ashame she wasn't a part of the final OLTL (ABC) episodes- Let the Viki vs. Dorian feud begin once again!
