I have a feeling that I’m not the only one when I say I use to watch a soap opera. Am I right?
I can remember it being the summer before my sophomore year in high school. I would make sure that I wasn’t doing chores or anything that would take my attention away from Days of our Lives at 12pm. Then, when that was over, I would go on about my way. Until, Passions started. Then, I got hooked on Passions. That didn’t last long because come one 1pm and I was ready to lay in the sun or play online, you know, anything I wanted. I decided it wasn’t for me and I would just stick to good ole “Days” Then, school started and not long after I began to drive. Then, I got a job. Of course I was never at home at noon to catch my soap. I know, what 15/16 year old should be watching a soap? Eh, it was harmless.
I think this was way before the days of DVR, or I guess I should say Tivo since it came out first, so there was no recording and catching up. Occasionally, I would catch one if I was home from school or it seemed like it did repeat really late at night, when I should be sleeping. Thankfully, I felt like no matter how long I went, it was always pretty easy to start back in or figure out what was going on.
I remember when Knox and Sloane were much younger and taking two naps. I would sometimes turn the TV on, but there was never anything on that I wanted to watch at those times. Since I knew what time that was, I could have scheduled to watch something daily had I found something I liked to watch.
Thank goodness for the internet, right? I remembered, with the help of my Twitter friends, that I could stream series of shows online. I could watch shows back-to-back. Shows I had seen before and even those I hadn’t.
Have you all tried Hulu? You can stream shoes! It’s awesome! And Free! Also, Hulu Plus? It let’s you watch shows on your iPad, iPhone, gaming consoles and set top boxes. There is only a $7.99 per month fee and you can pretty much watch it anywhere. Both of these have a great library of shows to select from. Now, even our Apple TV set top box has an option for Hulu on it. So that makes it super easy!
Did any of you watch One Life to Live or All My Children? Well, they are coming back! New episodes will be on Hulu and Hulu Plus! I had actually always heard great things about both of them, but they were never on at a time when I could watch them. It will be original cast members, with some new ones, too! I’m excited to see what they are like as far as making a “big return.”
Each weekday there will be a new episode and it’s a half- hour long. I figure since I can watch them on my actually TV now, I can turn them on during nap time. That’s something else I love, it can be playing and I can be doing other stuff. Also, by getting Hulu, you can pick other shows you want to watch at your convenience! You can get a week FREE TRIAL – HERE. I think I’ll give both shows a try and see if they seem like I would enjoy watching!
Anyone want to win a YEAR LONG subscription to Hulu Plus?? Also, one grand prize winner will win a Roku! Then, you can stream Hulu right from it!
