I have been a GL fan since probably 1968, watching it at my grandmother's house after school. I used to tape the episodes so I wouldn't miss an episode if I was at work, and I had all of the books, and bought every magazine if the characters were featured on the cover. After Tom and Stephanie left I didn't stop taping, but found I wasn't as interested in watching every episode...then when they went to the new format, I just couldn't make myself watch it... it was too painful and I knew it was well on it's way out. I did tape the final week, and after 2 months sat down one night and watched all 5 episodes in one sitting. It was like visiting old friends--- I was so happy to see Jonathan with Sarah, and Bill and Lizzie, and Reva, and Lillian and Buzz, and Billy and Vanessa, not to mention Dylan, Bridget, Nola, and many of my favorites from my high school days, like Mindy. I am going to take those 5 episodes and put them on either a DVD or VHS tape to keep. I have many VHS tapes of older episodes, as well. I hope that the soap opera boards will keep the GL boards open so we can get together and remember fondly our time with GL, and not let it fade away like Another World, and the like.
