I'm so disappointed that I can't get it in any format on my phone. Ill have to use my laptop at a Wifi spot to even be able to pay to watch. I'm not getting 60 dollar a month internet service for one or even two soaps. In the meantime I'm drooling over I after seeing the promos and reading everyone's feedback.

Oh and I still hate Destiny. However, this version of Destiny is lower on my hate list. The first Destiny was damn obnoxious and robotic. Hopefully, they don't bring back her even dudder brother or father or whoever that horrendous actor played.

Hooked already.

Melissa Archer was SMOKING HOT!
I thought maybe, for a second there, she might take it all off when she got back to her apartment. It's the internet now, and all bets are off. That's what makes it so much fun!

OLTL is free to watch. Internet service is pretty much $20 a month, just for access, everywhere. Not sure where the $60 came in..

Um the 60 dollars comes from what I was paying my cable provider for internet access and the amount I save each month on my cable bill since I cancelled the internet service.Every provider I spoke to in this area charges at least 50 dollars a month and not 20 or Id still have home internet instead of only 4G phone internet access. And OLTL is only free for the first ten episodes on hulu. After that it will be shown for a monthly fee on hulu plus or you pay ITunes whatever they charge per episode. Someone put it up on Youtube Monday morning and they were immediately shut down.

^Can you only watch 10 episodes for free or can you watch an episode for free within a 10 day time span?

Each episode has a 10 day span where it's free then it's replaced by the next episode and so forth.

I'm sorry, didn't know. Here in the south (Florida), it's just $20. In New Orleans, there are numerous residential hotspots for free internet. And other areas around here generally keep it at $20. That's assuming there's no cable service (which I do think is an unnecessary drain. It's why more people are switching to Hulu Plus or Netflix or more affordable services.)

Never watched OLTL before, but I decided to watch this premiere episode...

Dorian and David were extremely campy!! God awful. And this CIA story? Seems like something far-fetched like from Passions.

Other than the core cast members, everyone's acting was atrocious! Felt like I was watching a softcore porn without the porn.

Also wasn't a big fan of the constant camera zooming and that weird wide angle lens following people around... A little bit of movement is okay, but good grief!

Agreed with everyone that said the TSJ reveal was a letdown. Maybe because they did it in slow-mo? I don't know.

Liked the message to the fans at the end. That was nice.

Also forgot to add David's mention of Roxy. I'd love to see Ilene pop up sometime

I thought it look very modern--not like what you see on TV soaps. I think that they've chosen well in terms of characters too. When I was watching the show, I kept thinking, why can't Days look like that? Some of the camera angles, however, was kind of harsh but overall it looked good.

What a terrific ending of the first episode--giving credit to the fans. Once again, something that soaps should really remember...if it wasn't for US as fans, there would be no soaps!

Good start-- looking forward to seeing where this goes.....

The Victor reveal on episode 2 was pretty terrible. I guess there have been so many resurrections that even the characters aren't fazed anymore. Other terrible things included Jack and nuDestiny. And the people playing Dorian and David are hamming it up so much when they're together that their scenes feel more like a parody than a real story.

On a positive note, I did enjoy Viki/Dorian, Cutter/Rama and am looking forward to seeing more of Todd/Victor/their wives and kids (well Dani. Jack can go immediately).

I gotta say that am in love with TSJ. I haven't watch since it was still believed that he was Todd, so how did we find out he was actually Victor? I only really remember him as Todd because the one that is really Todd I only saw when he raped Marty (sorry if I got her name wrong. I think Victor or Vic whichever you want to call him will be one of my favorite characters, TSJ is really awesome and sexy as hell to me. And I love David I think those two where my favorites for today. I felt bad for Victor when he heard that door, it really seemed to freak him out. Also how did he supposedly get killed by Todd? Also I think the one that plays Todd is awesome too and him and Blair really have some chemistry between them.

if you've never watched OLTL, you probably wont ever understand the awesomeness that is David Vickers Buchannan. Its ok lol

So todays episode, imo, was even better! Victor just jumping out of nowhere and no one other than Tea having any real reaction was kinda lack luster tho. But i dont care, because i love those two together

NuMatthew grew on me a TINY bit. NuDestiny suuuuucks! omg. i cant with her at all lol

I hate the new foyer at La Boulaie. Actually, i hate the whole damn set lol I miss that grand staircase

They say "shit" a lot! lol

Im starting to love the 30 minute format. I mean why not? B&B has been doing it forever and their ratings are better than they should be

One thing i DONT like is that there are no next episode previews lol

This is all from memory, so it might not be 100% correct, but Irene had identical twins. She kept Victor, who was developmentally disabled. Fast forward 30 something years and Irene was working with an organization that wanted Todd to participate in espionage (or something). When Todd refused, Irene had him kidnapped. Todd kept repeating every detail of his life story like a mantra, while he was being held captive, and Victor was easily lead, so Irene was able to use that info to brainwash him into thinking he was Todd. She got him plastic surgery so he could fly under the radar in Llanview long enough to get acclimated. Then eventually he revealed himself as Todd. Irene's organization convinced Victor that he could help the government and so he did whatever it was that Todd had refused to do. Everything was fine for eight years, until the real Todd escaped and went back to Llanview to reclaim his life. Once the truth came out, Victor refused to just walk away from the life he'd been living, which angered Todd and he shot him to death. On the last episode the show revealed that Victor hadn't really died. Todd never served time for killing Victor, because he had PTSD after being tortured for eight years.

I was pretty disappointed in the premiere, but I'll keep going. I feel like it could have been so much better.

For some reason, AMC looks so much more enticing and better to me, even though I never was an AMC fan - and WAS an OLTL fan.

I will give it more time, but...not impressed! :(

I really liked new Matthew. Of course, I miss Alderson. I didn't like old Destiny, I don't like new Destiny either.

I love Dorian and Viki, but don't really understand this storyline.

I always thought David was embarrassing. Haha.

I LOVE Trevor St. John!

What is with Robin Strasser's wig? I am guessing it's a wig?
