Random Thoughts, Questions, & Ideas
By Patti G
4/17/11

While we all knew that the day was possible, I could hardly believe it when I turned on the news and heard the official notice about OLTL and AMC. Yes, I emailed ABC, Face Booked my comments, posted on the Boards and even boycotted watching my favorite station ABC. The hard fact is come September AMC will be gone. It doesn’t even seem sporting to make comments about the show this week; it would be like kicking a person when they are down.

One thing that I heard on the news which especially ticked me off was a “media expert” blaming the cancellation of the show on the viewers. That we stopped watching the show letting the ratings fall, and that we failed to pass the tradition of watching the show onto the next generation. AMC still has many loyal viewers, and those that stopped watching did so because TPTB and the writers failed to give us what we wanted to see. We told them. We were very clear what we liked and what we did not. Is it that hard to take what your viewers are telling you and do it? All the those Producers, Head Writers and Writing Staff, shame on you for letting your own personal agenda’s and lack of respect to the history of AMC you are the reason it is ending. 

You destroyed the many of the character’s (Tad, Jesse, etc), you let personal adoration for certain actors (i.e. Rebecca Budig) drive storylines, you let talented actors sit on the sidelines for way too long with nothing to do. 

I do not know how they plan on wrapping the show up. I hope that they will slowly conclude individual storylines and taper the show off until the final episode. AMC has been part of my life for almost its entire run and after September there will be a hole in my heart as 1pm comes around. 

             Well, that’s about all for now. Have a great week.

                    I would love to hear from any of my readers.
