My sons don't really "get" my appreciation for Soap Operas.
I still refer to them as "My Stories".
I watched All My Children, One Life To Live, Loving, General Hospital, Port Charles and Dynasty.
So when ABC decided to cancel my beloved AMC & OLTL I WAS LIVID!
I sulked for days. I petitioned with the masses and boycotted ABC Daytime.
Major brands and networks really need to consider their audiences before making such major decisions ESPECIALLY since we are the saps watching their commercials.
So when all else fails, turn to the internet! I really prefer how blogs run ads quite personally. It is a more personal and decisive action. Yet, major brands have now hijacked the shows we watch online!
If I am online and I see something I like, I stop and give it the attention it deserves. I detest being held hostage by brands and networks while I am watching a show, especially one I PURPOSELY did not watch on television - it is annoying.
ANY WAY! My stories are back! They are on the internet!
Yes the once free app is now charging up the gazoo. My son has agreed to live without NETFLIX so that we can order HULU so I can watch my stories at my convenience.
I can watch them free on my laptop but for any mobile device it is $7.99 a month.
I can't help but feel slightly molested by the mobile device-world but they know they have us by the "cojones".
The sad thing is that I am from the era who remembers how few ads there used to be. I recall when most of my favorite shows were in black & white! Twighlightzone, Eddie's Father, Bewitched, The Adams Family and more were ALL in black & white!
Okay! It is dreary and cold enough here in Chicago, where I do not feel bad for staying in and catching up on Pine Valley!
