I always tear up when the music starts...but then that chord hits at 3:47-3:48, and I'm done.

I have tried to keep cast lists updated, if you can take a look at: https://spreadsheets...ExcllncUE&hl=en and let me know if I missed anyone or having any mistakes of any major characters. AMC is updated through the second week in February. If you notice a mistake please PM me.

I am always jealous of people here & other places who havewatched AMC (& other soaps) since 'the good ol' days'! I've watched since I was 10 & that means 2003....LOL. ugh. I got attached to AMC for some reason right away, there was something about it...and though it's not as great now, that something is *still* there, but as faint as can be. I'll truly miss it..

In the early 80s AMC was magic.

That thread's gonna make me so sad now :(

I started watching in June 2011 when I was eleven years old, and even though that was the heart of Passanante's reign, and even though the vast majority of my AMC viewing experience has been of episodes from the last ten years, I take pride in the fact that this show, written by Passanante and Culliton and Rayfield and Cascio and McTavish, was a special, special thing for a kid who, at the time, needed another world to escape to for an hour every day. Perhaps that's why I'm never as hard on some writers as they probably deserve, because no matter how nonsensical one could say their stories were or how horrible one could say their writing was, there was always something, especially in that little 2002-2005 time span, that kept me entertained, kept me watching, and kept me sane. And then as I got more acquainted with the first 30 years, learning those characters and those storylines and as much as I possibly could about what AMC really is, at its core, the attachment I have for this show was born and will never, ever go away. AMC will always have a special place in my heart because of that, and yes, it sounds strange because it's "just a TV show," but I think we soap fans know something and have experienced something that people who haven't committed to watching a soap nearly every day for years upon years can never really understand.

Be glad we live in the time of the internet. In the 80s and 90s, after a long-running soap was canceled, that was it. Maybe you had video tapes, or magazine cut-outs. Maybe you were lucky and your soap got picked up for reruns. But in most cases? The show aired its last episode and that was it. I'm eternally grateful that Pine Valley will never more than a few keystrokes away.

Sniffle. As a child, my household wasn't a fun place to grow up due to issues of domestic violence (my dad). When I was home sick (or, to be honest, pretending to be sick), the soaps would be that something I'd watch with my mom after a morning of PBS and some game shows. Our thing. An escape.

Adam & Palmer used to scare the heck out of me when I was too young to understand they weren't real people. Then around 1988-1989, when I was almost 10, I started watching more for me rather than because my mother did. Erica and Travis, Erica and Jack, Adam and Brooke, Natalie and Trevor, Skye and Adam, Tad and Dixie (the soap couple that prompted me to buy my first VCR before I hit my teens in the early 90s), Erica and Kendall, Erica and Dimitri, Edmund and Brooke, Natalie in the well, who killed Will?, Hayley and Brian, etc. Some of my favorite stories, relationships and romances. I watched until the fall of 1995. I came back in the fall of 2002. McTavish got me locked in with the rape story turned into family/town love story. That got me back and I'll stick with AMC to the very end.

In my watching, the only writers that really offended my senses to an intense degree were Pratt and B & E. So while I may not have great words for the other writers, I also don't have all that disgust for them either - just for the good times.

ABC Nightly News just did a nice short piece on the cancellations. They read a tweet that summed it up - what soaps mean to fans.

I'm so sad to see AMC go.

I started watching with my mom in 1990 when I was 7 years old, and haven't stopped since.

Started watching in September of 2007. ABC Daytime was discovered when I was up all night crying after I was dumped by my fiance. I flipped to Soapnet and I was glued to AMC for Tad. And, MEK's acting. He made me laugh. I needed a laugh. OLTL drew me in because of the Paris Texas story with Viki, and GH because of Lulu/Johnny.

It got me through a rough period in my life. Kind of an escape.
