By now, devoted "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" fans and major Angel aficianados alike have suffered the most brutal act that could ever occur concerning the broadcasts of the show. Disney Channel now has pop-ups announcing what series is next and what series follows after that during the final main segments of episodes of "Lilo & Stitch: The Series"- and the rest of Disney Channel's overnight animation lineup to boot! Which unfortunately ceases all recording of all programming during the overnight block, which was the last remaining pure recordable block for fans to have. But now, promo pollution has claimed the overnight schedule as well.
For those who are wondering, Friday morning's broadcast of Episode #23 "627" was not only the last recordable episode of "Lilo & Stitch: The Series", but also the last recordable episode of any TV series with widespread availability. As of Saturday morning, "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" was no longer recordable for the fans. And Angel devotees wanting to record the legendary ep on Saturday were perturbed when the promo pollution showed up around 5:52 AM, ruining the recordings for everyone!
When promo pollution claimed Angel's ep Saturday morning, VCRs, VCR/DVD combos, DVD recorders, and DVRs became useless. And fans surrendered, because their most prized episode was no longer recordable, wiping out their libraries in one fell swoop!
"Lilo & Stitch" fans, Angel devotees, and overnight viewers alike mourn the loss of the last remaining pure recordable block that succumbed to promo pollution as of 6:17 AM Friday morning, when the early morning episode of 'Phineas and Ferb" became the first casualty of the pop-ups in the overnight block, ending pure home video recording of fave TV series for good.
Disney Channel struck with the pop-ups where it would hurt fans the most: during the final act of Angel's legendary ep. And did they strike a blow big time! They really hurt the fans deeply in the most brutal way- ruining the recordings of the most valued episode ever!
