alexandra ewing is on the internet.

twenty-something philadelphia-area online diarist comes home in the midst of a total breakdown and eventually makes good, to an electrifying soundtrack of '60s power pop.

it's the feel-good movie of the summer.

Some really cool news about a couple of American institutions: “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” are coming back from the dead to love you once again. But that’s not the big deal. Presumed-dead-love-of-your-life always finds a way to make it back and sweep you away. This is how soaps work.
Here’s the big deal: They’ll be exclusively on Hulu every day starting this year. Fans of watching people get left at the altar and faking comas—unite!
Seriously, people. This is a good time to call your mom. She’ll remember down the line. Then watch some, too, by mistake, and get addicted.

"Call your mom"—or ME. God, Hulu, it’s like you don’t know me at all.
But in all seriousness, I hope this makes the show more palatable to younger viewers because:
1) Soap operas are an American institution that should be treasured.
2) When OLTL went off the air it was easily the best one and had been the best one for many years, and it is the one younger viewers would be able to get behind most easily because it is basically the Community of soap operas.
3) I don’t want to have to go through this canceled-revived-canceled again-revived again drama EVER AGAIN.
