I watched "All My Children" for many years when my kids were little - then took a ten-year break and then started back up a few years ago. I have no interest whatsoever in watching "The Chew" - and feel rather insulted that ABC is replacing a long-running soap opera with yet another cooking/food/lifestyle show. With both the Food Network and the Cooking Channel, there are plenty of those shows elsewhere. So I'm sitting here - 30 minutes until the time "All My Children" usually comes on, and I'm feeling sad. Guess I'll do laundry or dishes instead. I'm realizing what a habit it was, though, to turn on the TV at noon to see AMC. I thought the ending on Friday was immensely unsatisfying. Why end a show with so many unfinished stories? Although I have to say that Jackson's "Gone With The Wind"-ish closing line was really good. I wonder if ABC will release past episodes. I'd really like to watch the shows from the years I missed. This is the "Random Ramblings" forum - and I'm certainly rambling!
