Calling Closet Soap Fans!


Just when you thought trashy reality TV was the only thing left to watch anymore (wait? Is that just me?)

[crickets]

Anyways...what I'm trying to say here is move over Teen Mom, Kardashians and The Real Housewives of Whatever City...the soaps are BACK!

Oh yes-it's true!

The highly-anticipated return of the two long-running ABC daytime dramas, and your guilty pleasure, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” will take place April 29 (ahem...TODAY!) when new episodes of the shows debut online, courtesy of The Online Network. Closet soap fans (AKA: YOU!) will be able to view the latest episodes via the free service Hulu.com and Hulu Plus! In addition, the iTunes store will offer both series via iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac and PC.
Not only are ALL the original cast members back, but there are quite a few new cast members, too!
Starting TODAY, like I said, you will be able to view the latest episodes of both dramas via Hulu.com ...wait for it...FOR FREE! If you have a Hulu Plus subscription, or would like to get one for less than $8/month, you can view the episodes there, too! (For a FREE trial week of Hulu Plus, go here.) But just wait! In addition to All My Children and One Life to Live, you will have access to ANY tv series included in the Hulu library! Ahem...Glee, Parks & Rec, Nashville...you get mah point!

I know. I know. It feels like Christmas, doesn't it?! Soaps are back, yes, but the main thing I'm most excited about is being able to watch them on Hulu. For free. On your computer. Anywhere in the world! (AKA: while you're "working"). (Kidding about that last part...maybe...)  ;) No but really...I'm NOT a movie person and as many road trips as we take, it will be nice to watch something I actually like and be able to watch it on my own time from the convenience of my laptop.

As if I didn't just totally rock your world...I have but ONE more thing for ya...

...a GIVEAWAY party people!!

  40. Back in the day I loved GL and ATWT. Had to give them up when I got a "real" job and couldn't watch when they were on. Hulu would allow me to watch on my terms at a time that would work for me.

  41. It would bring me some nostalgic memories from watching soaps with my mom.
