    I just want to say that PP is going to ROCK. I have no doubt.
    To take a chance like they are, and introducing the viewers a new way to watch television is
    going to bring them nothing but success.
    I can’t wait to watch my soaps, with good storylines, operated by people who are living in this century.
    YES I believe Robin S will be back. They need her. And she WANTS back!!
    KUDOS to ES (Vicki) (Clint) for following this new venture in this day in age…….
