Quote tinasfatheronlostin: At this point all we can really do is take a wait-and-see approach, right?
I've heard all the pros(Pollyanna-ish at best) and cons( naysayers from day one) about the reductions and the poorly done public relations spin that PP gave for the two day a week schedule.
I heard the news on Thursday and like most I too was upset, confused and surprised.
Now on Saturday, two days later, and being more open-minded and having some time to reflect......I don't see viewers getting invested in a half hour soap that airs twice a week.
I probably sound like a naysayer, but I loved OLTL. I consider myself more a realist. With the news this weekend that OlTL and AMC have been removed from FX Canada, I just think the writing is on wall.
For me, and only me, OLTL has felt forced, and I've had trouble getting into it. I find myself surfing the web, and only listening. I don't love the cursing and sexier sex scenes. I also think the characters are being played differently. I used to love Dani, I can't stand her now. Matthew too. The story lines, again, to me, are too rushed and underdeveloped. I just haven't loved it.
I haven't watched Thursdays show yet. I may not. I'm not sure if this is going to last much longer, and I'm not sure I want to get more invested.
I don't want OLTL to go anywhere, I really don't. But I haven't had the same experience y'all have. I don't love the show. I'm sorry for the naysaying.
