  1. It was a busy week for everyone it will bounce back !! GREAT show and Cast!!

  2. I LOVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE, PLEASE KEEP IT ON.

  3. OLTL is my favorite, but it is getting weird lately. Still watch though.

  4. I used to like watching One life To Live but not lately. I am not impressed with the story lines. One Life To Live was at it’s best when they had my favorite soap couple Tina and Cord, and the Max and Gabrielle story lines. I will still watch and hope one Life will stay on the air, but they better get some new writers and better story lines.

  5. I love One Life to Live!!!!! Please don’t take it off the air, it is one of my favorite shows of all time. I am a dedicated viewer!!!

  7. I think diversity and acceptance for all is what Christ really teaches. So many people live out of fear and or quick to judged based on old doctrines and old ways of the bible. Times have changes and we are called to love all gay , straight , black , white , etc. Compassion, and nonjudgement is the key. I say keep OLTL.

  8. OLTL is one of the best soaps on today. As far as the story line goes, it has been more bizarre and much worse (Eterna? what was that?) Even though some of the core charachters are sadly no longer with us, those that remain are still capable of pulling off an interesting and exciting story line. Rather than pull the show, pull the writers and bring in some new talent.

  9. i have been watching one life to live for many years. please dont take it off. but this stuff thats going on now has got to go. make better choiceshire someone new to do the story lines.things has gone to far that my daughter dont even want to watch it cause of whats going on cause of stoy lines.

  10. I too love OLTL and would like to see my favorites together. Thank you for getting Bo and Nora back together. I wish Todd and Blair could finally get it right.

  11. i agree it just a show

  12. I enjoy seeing Bo and Nora and a few of the other characters. They add “class” to daytime television. Please keep the show on!

  13. My mom bought a new one for my home. But I am having some problems and I need a little help.

  14. Guter Beitrag, danke.

  15. I been watching OLTL for more years than I care to count.I think whats killing the ratings is the Gay storylines. Way to many for me! I don’t need to see men kissing all over each other.If ratings are dropping so bad, don’t you think the writers would realize people really don’t wanta see all that. OLTL has gone way to far. I watch very little anymore. when I do it’s to see what Todd is up too. I turn the channel when the guys start kissing! I quit watching AMC for the same reason. Also, fake Erica Cane she has been on there way to long!I find her rather sickening….I miss Asa,the original Clint, BEST thing ever on OLTL was Judith Light as Karen…Best I’ve ever seen. No other compare to her and her story line…Losing a Dedicated fan for good!

  16. HI FIVE TO T4LAVERDES! back then they did have some whacky story lines but they also had some really good ones. I hope they bring in some good writers so that the show isnt cancelled. I still enjoy OLTL minus the OVERBOARD same sex arks.

  18. Looks like OLTL and not ATWT should have gotten the BOOT!

  19. What I can’t understand is, why when people do not agree with the Gay thing, why are they called a raciest. I am an African American Woman and I was born this way. There were no way for me to put it in the closet. I am also a Christian woman and just like there are people that believe in what they believe in, why can’t we believe in God the way that God wants us to believe in him? I am not offened not one bit. Where are the moral values in this country? And Fay I agree with you 100% They have lost my daughter and myself as well. I feel that if though that life style is being forced on to people and I am tired of it. If that is their choice then keep it in their homes and stop trying to bring it into the fans. Thay have lost me. Bye OLTL

  20. OLTL is a fantastic soap, I’ve been watching for years. It has drama action suspense and all around head spinner. I do see that they have made some poor choices in Killing off some key players, interesting players. But they can bounce back. Big story line and FINALLY kill off Mitch. (he’s played to death) Put the strong power couple’s back together and or CREATE NEW ONES!!!!! Clint and Kim. Natalie and John, Vicki and Charlie they were great together, Dorian and David. Let Jessica remember her life and make things happen with her and Brodi. That girl has been through enough, She’s not the only character on the show. You have written yourselves in a box, Now it’s time to think outside the box. Keep OLTL on the air.

  21. I have been watching OLTL since its inception in 1967. Please bring back more Dorion/Vicki feuds!

  22. OLTL use to be a great Soap, but now I guess the writer is out to lunch. I will be glad when he return as this use to be a great Soap. Bring back Viki and Clint. Develope family relationships as we have today and stop the fairy tales. This is the mosyt confused soap opera. Much to do about nothing.

  23. I don’t watch OLTL regularly, but do enjoy.it. Hope this works.
    By the way, whatever happened to Paul Kramer and Kelly?

  24. I have a question, on a show in late april or may there was a show with a baby in a stroller at the park. and on the stroller ther was a hanging angel.
    i woul like to purchase one like that can you tell me where it came from?

  25. I stumbled on this article on Yahoo although I was searching for something similar, but I just wanted to say fine stuff and I utterly agree. Is there any way to subscribe to fresh content?
