What is with that? I was reading that P&G teamed with AOL's video service and put vintage soap episodes online.

What soaps were uploaded? and did anybody save or rip these vids?

It's been a few years ago now and at least a couple of years since they stopped and took the videos down, but the series involved were ANOTHER WORLD (episodes beginning in August 1980); TEXAS (from the beginning); THE EDGE OF NIGHT (starting in 1980, I believe); and SEARCH FOR TOMORROW (starting in 1984/85). They typically posted 3 episodes a week. I really got hooked on EDGE for a time because the AOL run started right about the time of the train accident where Draper was presumed killed, but actually had amnesia and ended up thinking he was married to Emily Gault.

Me To! It really is a shame they ended it when they did cause there were some great stories coming up. The resolution to the clown puppet murders, Nancy's imprisonment at the Rexford Clinic and the Jeffery/Sky story on Edge. The resolution to the women to watch murders (which was kind of a bust, but still) and the flood on Search. Texas' last 6 months, which thanks to Pam Long were simply amazing. And the Alma Rudder story, followed by the introductions of Cass, Felicia and Donna on Another World.

All great stuff but sadly we will probably never see it again.

I managed to save most everything (except for very early on and right at the end) from those P&G/AOL eps on my computer and burned the flash files onto DVDs :rockon:

Oh wow! The Alma Rudder story, with Blaine and Cecile was great. It was one of the first storylines that I followed on AW. Cecile is one of my all time favorite soap characters. I was so disappointed when AOL stopped airing those classic episodes--as you said there was a lot of really good stuff coming up.

I loved Alma and "CeeeSUL"! Even her murder was well written!
