What can I say? Prospect Park's reboot of All My Children today has been a long time coming.
For me watching the show started many years ago. My mother and grandmother both watched the show and it was my first experience to the world of daytime soaps. When ABC announced that it was canceling the show I remember distinctively feeling as if I had lost my grandmother - who had died years prior - all over again. It was the one last thing that I had that to remind me of the times I had spent with her making cookies over the stove as she babysat me. Cookies mind you that we would then eat while we watched, as she called them "her stories..."
After some set backs, today Prospect Park has given soap fans back a daily staple that ABC failed to see for the crown jewels that they were. The new 30-minute episodes launched this morning on Hulu and will post new episodes every weekday starting at 5 AM ET/2AM PT. Just in time for yours truly to watch them on the train ride to work. Another juicy gem is that should ABC cancel General Hospital, Prospect Park already has the rights to that soap as well.
