The WB is Back — Online

Back in the day, it was the one network that spoke to my generation, with shows like Dawson's Creek, Felicity, and Gilmore Girls all reaching the ranks of must-see TV. But ratings dropped over the years, and in 2006, The WB and and UPN merged into the new CW; The WB was no more.

Until today, that is. As of now, the network is back as The, with full episodes and full seasons of favorite WB shows (and Warner Bros.-produced shows that aired on other networks). At its launch, the lineup includes the whole first season of Veronica Mars, 10 episodes of The OC, and a sampling of episodes from Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Gilmore Girls, among others.

The site's also loaded with special features for folks who like to make their own videos, including a clip maker called the "Wblender," and a bunch of quizzes and games (I'm a little embarrassed to admit I just killed some time playing The OC Memory Match, which is just an online version of the childhood game Memory but with pictures of those pretty, pretty Orange County kids).

  • Untitled Josh Schwartz Project — Schwartz and music supervisor extraordinaire Alexandra Patsavas are teaming up for a show set in the LA music world.

Here's a video taste of what it's all about. Do you think you'll check out the The

Sounds cool, but the main form of interactivity many people really want is the ability to chat online while watching videos. Lycos Cinema has become especially popular with teens who watch ABC Family shows such as ‘Greek’ and ‘Secret Life of the American Teenager’ on Lycos Cinema because they can chat live with friends and fellow fans while watching the show online together.

i'm actually interested in checking the site out again. i grew up on the WB And i miss a lot of the shows that were on it. the CW just isn't quite it ya know? i think that it says something when you see that they are building out new online shows on the site - to show that even though the network merged, it's not gone forever - and that there's still demmand and the higher ups see that and will give us what we want.
