    I enjoyed the episode, especially the scene where Victor Jr slams Todd against the wall and they start brawling. The only thing I didn’t like was the reaction from Vicki, Blair, Clint, and everyone else present. I was expecting more emotion, but glad he’s back on the show. This will be very interesting to see these two go at each other. Prospect Park did a good job keeping his return a secret, and I know that there will be more great episodes to come. We have to give it time, but so far, I do like what I see.

    The reason why there was no reaction is because everyone wishes he was dead, except my sweet Tea.

    Today’s episode was fantastic. It was amazing to watch all the emotions that played out with all the reveals today . The show is hitting all the right beats, and it’s great to see the fallout that’s just starting. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s show .

    I watched half at work, I’m going to watch the rest at home.. that way it’ll count as 2 unique hits, more ratings for the show!

    It was nice seeing Tea back w/ Victor, she seemed so lost and lonely without him. I think it’s going to be revealed that Victor was brainwashed by Allison Perkins for the year, so while he’s back, he’s gonna be up to some stuff.

    Can’t stand Jack! I’ve gotten over the kid who plays him acting.. I just can’t stand Jack in general. We are two shows in, still great.. can’t wait to watch the rest at home.. can’t wait to see how Victor v. Todd plays out.

    Question: Now that Victor is essentially broke, what is he going to do for a living? All the money was left to Todd, so Victor isn’t entitlted to any.. unless Irene had some money that goes to him.

    LOVE IT.. LOVE IT!!!!

    LOVED IT! What a surprise to see Trevor St John! I am thrilled he has returned and hope it’s long term. Can’t wait to see the battle between Todd & Victor. Victor and Tea were my favorite couple on the show!

    I am delighted that One Life to Live is back. Great seeing my faves: Viki & Clint, Dorian & David, and, of course Blair & Todd!!! I thought seeing that Victor was indeed alive would be more of a shock to everyone. They seemed nonchalant about it, though. All in all, a good episode. Also, during the first two minutes of OLTL, the episode “pixilated” for a few moments, froze, and then my computer crashed. It managed to recover itself, but I wonder did anyone else experience this? Thanks.

    Yeah, that’s the only thing that kinda through me off….no one seemed to have a reaction, with the exception of Tea, about Victor’s return. I know that the 30 minute format means that things have to move along at a faster pace, but I wouldn’t mind if they slowed it down a bit and focused on the impact of his return…..it affects so many people, so they really could have spent most of the episode at the hospital and dealt with that story. I know they will get in the groove of things and I will never stop watching…but I just want them to slow down a bit and let us enjoy some of the moments. Granted this comment comes on day two, so there’s still so much ground for them to cover. I just don’t want them to feel like they have to cover it all in the first week. We die hard fans aren’t going anywhere….LOL

    My thoughts are the same. This scene seemed unreal to me. More reaction to a person standing there alive, who was thought dead was needed.

    And turn down the music during the Shelter scenes… we can hardly hear the dialogue !!!!

    Agree.. was not too impressed by finding out that he is still alive. . i may watch it again and see if i missed something .. but disappointed and thet ultimately come from poor directing… I would have thought they would have had their A game on .. esp during the first week of shows.

    Glad to see theres alot of Vicki, Dorian and Clint.

    Somewhat surprised that the reveal of Victor came so fast… and that there wasn’t much reaction to it…

    (Technical Note – Hulu Plus did not load the program immediately. had to wait five minutes. This happened on Roku box, Ipad and Iphone)

    Jamie replied

    I totally agree..like why weren’t more people shocked at his return. Or asking where the hell he’s been. That was odd. I did think though…if it was still airing on network TV Victor would have lurked around corners for a good month before his reveal so that was nice. I’lI watch to see what happens, but I have to say that I think the acting is bordering on cheesey. They actors just seem to be acting different. Is it just me?? Also I hate the opening sequence. It’s REAL cheese.

    All kinds of awesome – I really didn’t think everybody was going to see Victor so soon! Todd&Victor fight, Tea&Victor reunion, I cannot wait until little Sam sees his daddy! Tomorrow, I hope! David Vickers is always hilarious, and I always love seeing Vicki&Dorian go toe-to-toe. I like the new Destiny, she’s got sass. I like Jeffrey, too (“she likes me” LOL) Tune in tomorrow!

    I’ve watched both shows on the free Hulu. Just go to hulu.com. Both shows are listed on the first page. Click on what you want to see and just watch. It didn’t cost me a cent. The commercials are short and I did not find them distracting. I think you don’t get commercials on the paid Hulu but I could be wrong about that. My understanding is episodes will remain available for viewing on free Hulu for 10 days. They will be available indefinitely on Hulu Plus and iTunes. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    There’s regular Hulu and there’s Hulu Plus.. regular Hulu is FREE, Hulu Plus is $7.99/month. The difference is regular Hulu has commericials, Hulu Plus doesn’t.

    it works from Safari browser too. http://www.Hulu.com and sometimes it just shows up as a One Life to Live image and title, otherwise just type in the name in the search box. You do not need to sign in to watch it or any other show.

    it’s also for sale (download) at iTunes, TV Shows tab. 99cents if you want single episodes, or buy a multi pass and get 20 shows for $9.99… if you download it to your itunes, each episode takes up about 300 mbs of space! You can also have it saved to a cloud and share it on all your computer devices.

    Sadie, I had issues with Hulu.com this morning also. Froze up,then told me I was using a pop up blocker…which I’m not! I am enjoying having OLTL back but will reserve judgment on the story lines for now! :)

    sadie soaper replied

    Thanks for the response. Yesterday, Hulu would not let me continue until I removed a pop up blocker (which I thought was already disabled). Maybe they’re working out a few system “bugs”. I watched All My Children with no incidents, though. Strange!

    Lainee replied

    Yeah, I thought it strange also since I do not have a popup blocker other than my browser and it did not respond with it’s usual “Would you like to allow popups for this site?” I waited a bit and tried again with no problems. Will see what tomorrow holds! :)

    I loved it. I was shocked that Victor showed himself so soon. I expected him to remain in the shadows longer and reveal himself on Thursday’s episode. Maybe this means things will move a little faster on this version. Either way, I’m thrilled that Victor is back. Poor Tea looked so broken and lost yesterday while she was in the nursery. I am surprised no one fainted in the waiting room when they saw Victor. The embrace between Victor and Jack was wonderful. “Take that Scarface.”

    I loved it when Blair told Todd she is sick of him taking out his frustrations on her. The Viki and Dorian scenes were wonderful as usual. I like the interaction between Matthew and Destiny and Matthew and Clint. I’m just so happy. We’ve got our people back!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait until tomorrow.

    Today’s episode was even better than yesterday’s. Loved it!

    During today’s episode, several things occurred to me:

    1. I can see OLTL inspiring a drinking game every time the “s” word is uttered, seems to be employed pretty often so far.
    2. With the appearance of Victor, I am hopeful the OLTL opening used thus far is a temporary one so as not to spoil Victor being alive. Here’s hoping we get a new one that includes Victor and matches the production value of the rest of the show.

    I was sort of expecting Victor to hide out from everyone for a bit so I was surprised when he went at Todd in front of everyone. I am also surprised that only Tea and Jack had any sort of reaction to Victor being back from the dead. Hoping he gets more reactions tomorrow.

    The writing and production values are on par with Cartini! Marin Gazzaniga’s script was great; sign her up for more. The Destiny recast is a bit too much to swallow, given the prior actress was short, tubby and mousy. OLTL reboot has a superior cast to AMC. Have to say I’m hooked already. I hope they keep it edgy and sophisticated. Dorian has been amazing. I love how everyone drinks alot just like the headwriters!

    Reply

    Scott replied

    You’ve got to be kidding about the writing. Have you ever watched a soap before? It’s obvious this Gazzaniga person hasn’t. No idea where she came from — probably one of Kwatinetz’s “brilliant discoveries” — but she needs to go back there and turn her typewriter over to someone who knows how to write. Llanview and Port Charles aren’t “thousands of miles apart” as she had Todd say, and Victors response when asked how he’s alive? “just let it be enough that I am”, or whatever. WTF?! Overall awful dialogue, and her episode today wasn’t any better. When in doubt, just have someone say “shit”, preferably right to Viki’s face, whenever possible. If this is going to be representative of the “quality” of writing on the show, count me out.

  24. heidi says:

    The second episode of OLTL surprised me that we did not learn more about what happened with Victor. Todd is being shot a lot with no dialogue as is Victor… while I understnd everyone’s confusion… I share it… we spent way to much time looking at each other and not saying anything. Hope tomorrow’s episode has people speaking about where he came from. I realize and appreciate that everyone was and should be concerned about Dani… but share with us what has happened to have him there. Happy there was less Shelter on… but did not like any of the time spent there and would have appreciated more dialogue from Victor, Todd and Tea. Hopefully we will get some tomorrow or Thursday. Love having TSJ on!!!

    I loved Victor slamming Todd (who has appeared nothing but bored, annoyed, or superior. Why is he he there if he doesn’t want to be there? They can’t be paying him -that- much) into the wall, Téa and Victor’s reunion, Victor interacting with Jack (AJT is adorable, but he still needs major coaching), and Florencia Lozano being amazing, as she always is.
    The lack of reaction at Victor’s return from everyone but Téa and Jack was very disappointing, and I hope that the power games and bullshit of the “queen” will not be present in the PP version (although my hopes are dwindling with today’s episode).
    The new Destiny is pretty, but that’s all that I can say that is both true and flattering. I don’t buy that a young man who wants to impress Dame Viki and get a job would say “no shit” to her; that was just unrealistic.
    Overall, I’m going to need more story, and I hope we’ll be seeing that.

    I have to admit that I am afraid to say one critical thing about the show because I am just so damn happy they’re back! I have some minor criticisms that I hope they work out over the next few episodes; like the audio at Shelter (don’t want to hear everyone’s high heels when there’s music playing), uneven acting, the seemingly lack of response when people saw Victor for the first time (the silence was deafening and didn’t sell any kind of shock).

    I believe that these little things are going to work themselves out in time and I will be glued to my computer monitor every day watching.

    Via la ONE LIFE TO LIVE!

    you’re not alone with those feelings… we’re glad they’re back, but….

    those Shelter scenes and the lack of reactions when Victor showed up… well, hate to say it but it just put me off. I didn’t bother watching yesterday’s show and will probably just wait intil the weekend to catch up. Certainly not clamoring to get to my computer to watch the next episode.

    I thought for sure they’d bring it on for the first week or two, more like GH did for their 50th Anniversary. For GH, I was like more, more, more. OLTL, I’m like. Ok, they’re back. I’ll catch ‘em later.

    but I’ve got iTunes saving the episodes just the same… I’ll save them at least until Roger Howarth is gone.

    Loved it. Was looking forward to two things. Victor and Tea’s reunion and next Victor and Dani. Both needed to see him about evenly. I too am surprised that it didn’t drag out. If this were on a network, there would be about 3 or 4 close calls and after a few weeks a Friday cliffhanger of Victor finally being seen by someone.

    Christy replied

    I see several fans referring to Trevor as “the real Todd Mannaing”. Is that because he’s the only Todd you’ve known, or because you prefer him over Roger Howarth, or because you’ve heard some scoop?

    I remember when Todd first showed up on OLTL and it was Roger. He came and went a couple times, but Todd was portrayed for year and years by Roger, Then when he left and they recast and got Trevor who was Walker Laurence and then Todd. And then when Trevor announced he was leaving and then they got Roger to come back, they made up that whole thing about what Irene did to them and one was the real Todd (Roger Howarth) and the other was Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John).

    Ep. 2 was terrific. Loved Blair calling Todd an asshole! So true to life. Network TV better look out, after only two episodes, OLTL and AMC are better than anything on network daytime. I hope PP is looking to bring back more of actors from the network versions. My 2 cents.

    Loved the second episode more than the first one! I loved the Victor and Tea scenes. Though Vicki would have had more of reaction to see Victor. I thought the Matthew and Destiny scenes were genuine and very needed. I think the s word is used way to often. And i really hope TSJ sticks around for a long time to come! Great job Prospect Park keep it up!!!

    B.J. replied

    Same here, Connie. Loved Victor with Tea and especially his tenderness with Jack. However, I was dumbfounded that there wasn’t a big reaction/reunion with Viki. They were so close… I hope this is remedied soon!

    Biggest wish though is that TSJ is under contract and will stay. :)

    Great day today!

    How I wish Van Hansis, Eric Sheffer Stevens, and Jake Silbermann would be in this soap. It doesn’t matter what character they play or whether they are paired off together or with some other character. It also doesn’t matter what the sexual orientation of their character is. I just miss them on my TV screen. I also miss Austin, Terri, Trent, Ewa and Colleen. Oh! I miss so many of the ATWT characters including Jack, Carly, Dr. Bob Hughes, Holden, Lily, Lucinda, Casey, Maddie, Ali, officer Margo, Nathalie and Ethan. Will I ever get to see these awesome actors and characters on TV again or will it remain just a dream. Sigh! And, how I wish they would bring back the characters of Kyle Lewis and Oliver Fish; they could be shown raising their daughter, Sierra Rose, who must be entering pre-school.

    well, I was glad to see more of the Lord/Manning brothers, but I’d say epic fail on the lack of reactions to Victor being alive! what is up with that? Tea had good reaction, but I have seen the ladies of Llanview have much more serious reactions and shock to other things… and 2 newspaper people in the room and neither of them, especially Viki, were asking the questions you would have: who, what, where, when, why, or how?

    Who is that?
    oh, that’s my brother Victor that we all that my brother Todd shot dead about 2 years ago.
    What? So everyone knew he was alive?
    no. he just showed up here.
    Well, why are all of you acting like it’s no big deal!!?
    What happened to him? Where has he been all this time?
    i dunno.

    just plain ‘out of character’ for all those characters. no reaction, except some from Tea.

    I’m a long time watcher of OLTL, and was excited to see it come back. I’ll give it more time, but it feels like they are trying to hard to be ‘edgy’. Multiple shots of Natalie in her bra, then she strips and lays down on the couch (shoes still on though). I also think that they put too much cussing in the show.

    I’ll give it time, but I’m just a bit disappointed in those things so far. Love having it back though.

    apparently they haven’t heard what happened to JCPenney when they tried to be edgy….. they lost a LOT of customers and now have fired that “edgy” CEO and are going back to the old ways of advertising and they former logo and asking customers to come back.
