It's so dang simple people!! I'm only writing this because I'm enjoying my "online" experience with these soaps more than I can say.
Hulu.com is EASY..you don't even need an account..or log in. Just search the soap and start watching. If you choose the first commercial (which is longer) you won't have many to watch during the shows.
HULU IS FREE...HULU IS FREE you can WATCH FREE. FREE FREE!! ***
Once you log on and start watching (they are set up in order) you can go back at any point and resume where you left off. I went somewhere yesterday and had 3 minutes left--came back this morning and my spot was right there. Nice. I did create an account so my "channel" is ready. It's a lot like YouTube in that way. I just hooked it to my Facebook account. Now that I see all the shows available, WHY DO I HAVE CABLE!!? Between this and Netflix, hell-- it's great!
The next eppy will load if it's ready to roll, right after you finish the last one you saw. The new episodes are ready at 5am.
You can watch them daily, or binge on the weekends. They are short, 25 min or so and move fast. The audio is good (so many webseries are crap in that area). You may seen new actors (especially in the 'young adult' roles) but the way they are weaving the stories, you'll catch it quick.
If you have a Wii or a Playstation 3, load it up--hook it in and watch through there on your TV. We have an HDML cable we can use from my laptop to the screen. I have a bigger laptop so I don't mind watching on it. Hey, my kid doesn't even WATCH TV anymore--just uses his laptop and Netflix, Hulu and You Tube.
All My Children actually went ahead 5 years, ala Desperate Housewives.
The humor and the "feel" of both shows are intact. Yes, some faves are missing but it may be that once these get rolling and start taking hold, others will come back.
REMEMBER: WE THE FANS are the ones that made this happen. Seriously--never before has the voice of the fan been more important. The other thing I love? The actors are just so HAPPY to be back to their shows. If you read their tweets or see Instagram, they are just giddy. It's awesome.
** as it was so KINDLY POINTED OUT in comments, you can't watch Hulu Free if you only have a gaming system or iPad..Sorry. Me, being the dinosaur I am still have a Dell laptop, Toshiba notebook and Dell Desktop so I'm golden.
