    Yippee! I can't wait! I barely remember watching this soap with my aunt when I was a child. Hopefully they will make this a trend with Another World, and possibly, Dark Shadows.

    I can honestly say I never heard of that soap, but I"ll tune in anyway. I wish they would show more soaps, Ryan's Hope, As The World Turns and so many other.

    I watched "The Doctors" years ago. It was an excellent soap. I'll be watching it again. I hope RETRO adds "As The World Turns", "Another World", "The Edge of Night", "Love of Life" and "Capitol" to the lineup. Since SoapNet went off the air, fans lack an outlet for cancelled soaps. RETRO TV could fill that void.
