    I know there has been a thread or two about some of the changes being made at American Movie Classics. This story from the Kansas City Star moved on the Knight Ridder wire today, and I though people here would find some interesting information:

    IMHO, the only unique things AMC had going for it were it's introductions to the films, OAR, and no commercial interruptions. Sounds like DVD, doesn't it? If AMC is going down the commercial and P&S road, they will be just like everyone else, and I'll have no reason at all to watch it.

    There is still Turner Classic Movies. They are still showing movies without commercials, and for the most part, in OAR. Let's hope they continue and not go the route of AMC.

    AMC is but a distant memory for me now.

    I don't watch movies on AMC anymore. Once in a while I will watch one of their "Backstory" shows, but they have destroyed just about everything I used to like aout the way they showed movies. Viva-TCM!

    A gave up on AMC a long time ago, and haven't given them a second thought. TCM is about the only reason I'm still paying my satellite bill.
