Mike said on FB that YouTube shut down his channel because he posted the same thing multiple times (apparently not noticing the difference between the various GL episodes). Apparently it's part of a grand scheme on YT's side to get rid of non-creators and non-copyrighted material.

 

That makes zero sense. So I guess we will just see more and more channels that post content from old shows disappear. 

 

I never really watched a ton of his stuff - I wish I had now. 

 

What would be the point of even going to Youtube without old shows? Listening to music...at best. Youtube is really doing its best to chase people away. I have little interest in most of the creator content on Youtube. That wasn't even what made them big in the first place - it was people putting up an SNL film (Lazy Sunday). 

 

I guess I should prepare myself for most channels that post any old TV content disappearing.

I was just thinking that I wonder if they were confused because the videos were often labeled the same over and over except for one or two elements (many December of (1991, 1992, etc.). Not that that warrants them taking down the channel. It makes me hope some of the other channels might survive but I'm not holding my breath. 

 

I hope maybe someday we can have these on some kind of private website, as some soap fans have done over the years.

YouTube has been gradually taken apart since Google bought it.

 

I was not surprised. Any sense of feeling momentarily surprised was with not anticipating that it would happen on this date.

Just heard about Bandstandmike.....WTF?!?!🤬 I'm not really a GL fan but I did appreciate all that he uploaded, and I liked hearing the Y&R previews during the credits...

YT is going down fast....

With the success of the Marah reunion...I'm hoping the Mindy reunion will happen with the 4 Mindy's...or even a Michelle Bauer reunion would be nice as well.

Sometimes I forget that most of this set went on to primetime/film success. It's nice that most didn't forget "where the came from."

That is terrible news, re: YouTube!  I had discovered those early '90s episodes way late and was still a year behind the uploads—actually more, because I had hit a brick wall in June 1993.

 

I wasn't enjoying Buzz or Nick this time around, and Barbara Crampton's Mindy never worked for me.  Whereas in previous 1993 episodes there were other stories hitting their stride that held my interest, the focus on Hart and the lead-up to Billy/Vanessa's wedding all seemed so anticlimactic knowing as I did that Leonard Stabb and Jordan Clarke would both be abruptly gone in a matter of months for such unfortunate reasons.

 

I got distracted with the Zoom reunions and, so help me, the Loving murders (if you had told me circa 1999 that I would pass up the opportunity to watch full episodes of GL written by Curlee/Demorest for something written by Esensten and Brown...).  And I even skipped ahead a few weeks ago around the 4th to watch episodes from a year later with the return of the Bauer BBQ, and went down a bit of a rabbithole watching some surrounding scenes of Roger/Holly, Vanessa/Jenna, etc.

 

The 1993 dialogue and acting (for the most part) were still topnotch, though, and I knew full well there was so much exciting story I actually care about coming up in a matter of weeks: David/Kat, Roger/Holly, Holly/Blake...  I should have just skipped ahead.

 

A year or so ago, I recall BandstandMike announcing in the description videos that he was making decades' worth of episodes available on a flash drive, but there was a hard stop by a certain date–which, of course, had long passed by the time I got up to whatever episode that was.  Does anyone know if he ever revisited that offer?

Regarding the flash drive...I’m trying to find that out, too. I’m willing to pay. Please let me kow if you find anything out.
