A stick with a wig would be a better Jack Manning, IMO.

Oh and that opening is weird as shit. Is that some interpretative dance or something?

I keep expecting Bill Cosby to pop up during the dance routine.

Holy moly! Todays episode was even better! Im not just saying that cuz im biased either lol :P

Little Miss Dani had a reaction to Victor that made up for the lack of one from everyone else! And i knew she would. Her scenes when Victor "died" last year had be bawling :'(

I know Todd is her father, but DNA or not, Dani will always be Victor's daughter, imo. I think Jack will warm to Todd before Dani does

And of course there was another "shit" bomb, but only one. trust me, i was counting. im thinking about starting a drinking game to it actually if anyone wants to join :drunk:

I just have to say again how much am in love with TSJ as Victor, I still want to call him Todd. Even though I do love RH but TSJ I remember him more as Todd. Yea at least Dani had a great reaction, poor girl was going crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

I am so glad the story is back!!! I like it too that the same characters have made it to the online version. I like the online version, less commercials and I have an old laptop that I watch it on and it's great, no buffering or stopping with that little wheely thing. Long live One Life To Live!!!

I think several of the returning cast members' acting has been 'off' so far, but the one bothering me the most is TSJ. A lot of it is because of the writing, but he's still playing Victor so lifelessly like he did toward the end of his original run and it's driving me crazy. Given how physically aggressive his "Todd" tended to be, it's hard for me to believe that he wouldn't have taken Todd's head off by now both for the shooting and especially for the dead baby switch.

Meanwhile, I liked the little scene between Nora and Matthew. It was the first time that I believed the new guy as Matthew Buchanan, so maybe he won't be as bad as I thought he would be after the first episode.

He can't act??
I feel like I can count on one hand the actors on this incarnation of OLTL who CAN act. He's young and I feel like he's going to get better in time. For the part he has, I think he does just fine.

I don't think he knows about the dead baby switch yet. But I get what you are talking about.

It's hard for me to judge a lot right now. Nothing story-wise has struck me as amazingly spectacular but I'm just so happy that these characters are back in my life, I don't even care!!

TSJ's character whether its Todd or Victor has kinda always been 0-60 to me tho. Like he's eerily calm for a long time letting everything build up, they he manic explodes. he just hasnt been able to explode yet lol but i agree that the writing seems to be off so far. if i had never seen this show prior, i wouldn't have a clue what was going on right now. i dont know if they got any writers back from the old show or not, but they need to.

I think a lot of the dialog gaps have to do with the new 24 minute format (half hour my ass lol) having to cram a lot of stuff into that time seems difficult.

Oh and about Jack, i hated him before the cancellation. manly because he was a tool. maybe i'll like him now, we'll see

That reminds me, have they all been aged to 21 now?

But with all the conversations that seem to have taken place off-screen already (particularly with this group of characters), for all we know, he might. Because so many beats are being underplayed or just skipped altogether with Victor's return, it's coming off very disjointed.

I'm willing to give them time to find their stride, I'm still in that phase of just being in awe of watching Viki and Dorian again.

I agree completely about TSJ, the return is really falling flat. No big reveal, no setup, no intrigue. They should have taken their time. If he could show up and hang around the hospital like he's been doing why didn't he just walk in the door a year ago? Where's the danger?

And why are the big details like Alison Perkins involvement being revealed off screen?!

I'm looking forward to when we're out of this transitional phase and getting on with new stories. Hopefully it's only a matter of a week or two. Atleast it's not as annoying as All My Children.
