*dusts off cobwebs* Hello there! I thought I'd start using this journal more again.
To start off, I felt like making an entry regarding a few of the shows I've most recently gotten into or plan on sampling in the last several months. I'm watching more shows than this, but I'll make other posts soon regarding those shows. My big problem is that I fall in love with a lot of shows and want to watch them all, but don't always have the time to do that. Eh. I was never into the binge watching thing at first, but it's something I'm finding myself doing practically every weekend now. Also hiatuses/rerun breaks like right now are a good time to squeeze in another show.( Read more...Collapse )
As told here
Really excited about this. It'll be so nice to see classic episodes in good quality! It's been really hard seeing older eras of these shows. Lord knows SOAPnet has shown little interest in airing vintage years of anything in the past several years. They don't even show Ryan's Hope anymore; that was dropped and the schedule changed with "classic" All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital from 2006 or so. AOL was doing good with the P&G classics page they had with the Search for Tomorrow, Edge of Night, and Another World episodes that were being posted, but it didn't last. Basically at this point, if it wasn't for YouTube, we wouldn't have much of anything if we had a vintage soap fix to fulfill.
Some really good and memorable episodes are a part of this. Steve and Betsy's wedding (oh hai there, Meg Ryan)! Bob & Kim's wedding! Luke coming out to Holden and Lily! For the longest time I've been wishing I kept the recording of that one. Also, I'm guessing the "The Explosive Truth" listing is the date when Barbara had an unfortunate run in with fire.
I never thought this day was going to come. Even if it's post-cancellation, I'm glad that Procter & Gamble/Telenext finally starts to see some value with what they possess. Because it's not going to benefit anyone if all this classic material is just locked away in a vault. Hopefully this set does well, and we'll see more of this show, and the other shows they own.
For me, this has easily turned into the most anticipated TV on DVD of the year.
