It’s that time again! The soaps are back and ready to infiltrate your home by any means necessary! Why am I weirdly excited for soaps? I'm a closet soap addict from WAY back. I started watching soaps in the womb (it's totally possible, ask anyone).
I remember always watching the soaps with my Grandmother especially. She had a real thing for her “stories”. Even still today, when I watch the episodes it’s a comfort seeing some of the same people that were on there when her and I used to watch them together. Even though she passed 9 years ago in January, I feel like she’s still watching these soaps with me. It’s so great knowing that with Hulu I can watch the shows and remember my Grandma as I sat on her lap and watched drama unfold and immerse my mind into the lives of these insanely beautiful and sometimes sinister people.
Beginning April 29, 2013 two of the most beloved Soap Operas of all time, One Life to Live and All My Children, are coming back to Hulu with all new episodes! The shows will be welcoming back original cast members are back as well as a hot new group of actors and I'm geared up to see what type of spicy new story lines will be added into the mix.
Because I have my own kids now who are active in school and sports and I also work during the day on bloggie things, I don't get a whole lot of time to sit in front of the TV. This means DVR does me no good, plus it fills up fast. Hulu will let me sit at my computer and watch my favorite soaps from my iPad while I work on my little corner of the internet. It's a multi-taskers DREAM.
One Life to Live: Follows the complicated lives of three main families: the wealthy Lords, the powerful Buchanans and the strong-willed Cramers. The quiet simplicity of small town living is often interrupted by the drama between them yet despite the struggles, strong family bonds keep them united.
All My Children: Revolves around the lives of the residents of fictional Pine Valley. For nearly forty years, this town has seen the trials and tribulations of its dynamic families. Now your favorite stories are back, and more dramatic than ever!
Each episode is only a half hour long and there are two options to catch the latest episodes on Hulu: Hulu.com and Hulu Plus.
Hulu.com is absolutely free and allows you to watch the latest episodes on your computer.
The other option is through the Hulu Plus subscription service. With Hulu Plus, for a monthly fee of $7.99 you will be able to watch all episodes through select internet connected devices such as an iPad, iPhone, gaming consoles and set top boxes.
