  1. On April 30th, 2019, GZSZ is going to have another 90-minutes primetime episode. This year, the special will focus on the Gerner clan (Katrin & Jo vs. Laura) and Emily's stalker Karla. The primetime episode is followed by the premiere of the new primetime soap "Nachtschwestern" (Night Nurses) and a "GZSZ – Behind the Scenes" special. "Nachtschwestern" stars former soap actors Ines Quermann (née Kurenbach, ex-UU), Mimi Fiedler (ex-UU), Sila Sahin (ex-GZSZ), Oliver Franck (ex-GZSZ) and Nassim Avat (ex-AWZ).

Eric Stehfest (Chris Lehmann), Lea Marlen Woitack (Sophie Lindh), Luise von Finckh (Jule Vogt) and Linda Marlen Runge (Anni Brehme) were removed. Valentina Pahde (Sunny Richter), Daniel Fehlow (Leon Moreno), Iris Mareike Steen (Lilly Seefeld) and Chryssanthi Kavazi (Laura Weber) reveived new footage. Thomas Drechsel's (Max "Tuner" Krüger) scene is a recycled shot from 2017. The previous opening showed him together with Linda Marlen Runge (Anni Brehme). This is the first opening to feature Olivia Marei (Toni Ahrens), Maximilian Braun (Luis Ahrens), Gamze Senol (Shirin Akinci) and Timur Ülker (Nihat Güney). Contract stars Gisa Zach (Yvonne Bode), who debuted in January, and Nils Schulz (Robert Klee), who debuts this week, were not added.

  6. Unfortunately, they shut down that website when TVnow was relaunched. 😶 TVnow is still uploading classic episodes of GZSZ and UU. Currently, GZSZ is up until episode #290 (July 1993), and UU is up until episode #220 (October 1995). In addition, premium users have access to every episode since May 2007. For AWZ, the whole series is available for streaming. Cancelled soaps that are available for streaming: Verbotene Liebe (1995-2015): https://www.youtube.com/user/verboteneliebe1994/playlists has uploaded most episodes Alles oder Nichts (2018-2019): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8l-jbLsudDXOC6kkBxm0gw/videos has the whole series Marienhof (1992-2011): https://www.youtube.com/user/masterof1990/videos has some full episodes, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEg8dmaYzd0X7hu4KNHcuNA/videos has a lot of episodes Mallorca – Suche nach dem Paradies (1999-2000): https://www.youtube.com/user/suchenachdemparadies/videos has the whole series Alle zusammen – jeder für sich (1996-1997): https://www.youtube.com/user/allezusammen1996/videos has the whole series Ahornallee (2007): The whole series is available on TVnow Some Comings and Goings: In an unexpected turns of events, Daniel Fehlow (Leon Moreno) has been written out of GZSZ. The actor first joined in April 1996, departed in May 1999, and then returned in April 2001. Thus, he's the show's second longest-running cast member. Episodes had to be edited to conceal Fehlow's sudden exit. At the same time, Fehlow's wife Jessica Ginkel, who starred as Caroline Neustädter on GZSZ from 2006 to 2009, also announced her exit from the successful primetime series "Der Lehrer" (The Teacher). Reasons are unknown, and it's unclear whether Fehlow returns to GZSZ in the near future. Also on GZSZ, Nils Schulz has been cast in the new contract role Robert Klee. Robert is a successful architect and is probably becoming Nina's (Maria Wedig) new love interest. Apparently, he's also the father of Brenda, a character that recurred on the show last summer. Brenda was a classmate of Nina's son Luis (Maximilian Braun). She blackmailed Luis with a video showing him masturbating. Her heavy bullying almost pushed Luis into suicide. Maike Johanna Reuter (Pauline Reusch) is departing AWZ in April 2019. The actress joined the contract cast in October 2017. Pauline is the latest member of AWZ's "Failed Leading Lady" club. In turn, Ron Holzschuh has joined AWZ in the role of Nicolas Nadolny, a new enemy of the Steinkamp family. Holzschuh previously played the devilish Bernd von Beyenbach for several years on "Verbotene Liebe", and he also had a recurring role on UU in 2014. AWZ has a cross-over with the show "Vermisst" (Missing). In AWZ's storyline, Moritz (Tijan Njie) is searching for his long-lost father. Sandra Eckhardt, host of "Vermisst", will appear on AWZ as herself and reunites Moritz and his father.

  8. Apparently, Maruv won the Ukrainian National Final last night, but she won't be allowed to represent the country because she has given concerts in Russia 😡 I don't get why the EBU doesn't ban Ukraine and Russia from the contest... every year there's some new drama involving these two countries. Denmark 2019: Leonora / "Love Is Forever" Language: English, French, Danish & German Germany 2019: S!sters / "Sister" Language: English Hungary 2019: Joci Papai / "Az ém apám" Language: Hungarian Joci Papai previously represented Hungary in 2017 with the song "Origo" which finished in 8th place.

  12. In honor of TVnow uploading GZSZ and UU from the very beginning – the whole first year of GZSZ is up already, and the first 70 episodes of UU as well – I've deviced to translate a summary of the first 100 episodes of GZSZ, covering May to October 1992. I will do the same for the first 100 episodes of UU as well. As GZSZ was adapted from the Australian soap "The Restless Years", the first year of the soap (and its Dutch adaption "Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden") had the same storylines and characters as the original, with only minor tweaks. Both GZSZ and GTST went their own ways after episode 230. Only a few months before graduation, a group of friends drops out of high school because they are curious about the "real life" and want to be independent. Peter Becker (1st actor: Matthias Hinze, 2nd actor: Sali Landricina) is regularly beaten up by his father Erwin (Werner Kanitz) and thus wants to move out from home. His mother Gerda (Christiane Reiff) is not a big help because she's too afraid to stand up to Erwin. When a fight escalates, Peter hits his father back for the very first time. A short time later, Peter learns that Erwin and Gerda only adopted him. He doesn't want to return home and finds shelter at his best friend Heiko Richter's (Andreas Elsholz) home. Peter wants to find a job, but that's easier said than done. A while later, he gets the chance to become the manager of the "Parkcafé". Heiko's parents Clemens (Frank-Thomas Mende) and Vera Richter (Angela Neumann) own a spacious home in the suburbs, where Heiko grows up in a well-protected environment. While Clemens works as an art director at Oswald Löpelmann's (Bernhard Heinrich Herzog) advertising agency, Vera takes care of the house and the garden. The domestic idyll breaks to bits when Clemens and Vera tell Heiko that they're getting divorced because Clemens has started an affair with his secretary Claudia Wedemaier (1st actress: Andrea Höhne). Vera consoles herself with Clemens's choleric colleague A.R. Daniel (Hans Christiani). Together, they drown their sorrows in alcohol. Only when Claudia becomes involved with Oswald and wants to marry him does Clemens realize that he's made a big mistake. While Oswald soon sends Claudia to Paris, Clemens returns to Vera. A while later, they're excpecting a second child. Also, they're heading to Wilkenstein where they are supposed to manage a new subsidiary of Oswald's agency. Patrick Graf (Alexander Kiersch), son of business mogul Richard Graf (1st actor: Lutz Moik), also drops out of school. None of the friends particularly like him because he's obnoxious and bigheaded. Patrick believes that having a rich dad will open up any door for him, but then he learns that Richard doesn't want to support him at all. Patrick starts working as an intern at Oswald's agency where he has to work under Clemens and Daniel. Both men can't stand him while Oswald takes a liking to him. Before Oswald follows Claudia to Paris, he hands over all duties to Clemens and appoints Patrick as his right-hand man. Daniel feels overlooked and resigns from the agency. Heiko's girlfriend Tina Ullrich (1st acress: Sandra Keller) wants to become a successful singer or model. Her parents died when she was a little girl, and she lives with her much older brother, the doctor Frank Ullrich (Johannes Baasner), who has his own doctor's office. Frank is against Tina's future plan, but she has a mind of her own and soon meets the wrong people. Patrick promises her to make her famous. After breaking up with Heiko, Tina becomes engaged to Patrick, but then she learns that she's pregnant with Heiko's child. She wants to have an abortion but Heiko wants to fight for the child's life and even turns to the media to bring the story into the news. Tina is involved in a car accident and loses the child. When Heiko receives the news, he is heartbroken and leaves to town. He strands at the farm of the Hahnich family and lives there for a while. Heiko almost dies when he is eletrocuted. At the hospital, he is reunited with his parents Clemens and Vera and returns home soon after. Elisabeth Meinhart (Lisa Riecken), who was the teacher of Heiko and the others, is terminally ill and has to quit her job. When she tries to kill herself in the 1st episode, she is rescued by Peter. That they are mother and son is a secret that only comes to light years later! After a very complicated surgery, Elisabeth's condition improves significantly. In the meantime, Daniel establishes the "Domi-Ziel", a shelter for homeless and troubled youths. Both Elisabeth and Peter become staff members. Tina's best friend Elke Opitz (Claudia Weiske) has different problems: She drops out of school because she's having an affair with her teacher Michael Döring (Michael Spitzl). Elke and Michael soon become engaged. Elke has to say goodbye to her parents because they are moving to Rostock. She moves in with her neighbor Elisabeth. While looking for a job, Elke meets Julia Backhoff (Marie-Christine Herriger), a former friend who has left school some time earlier. Julia has supposedly found a good job and is making a lot of money. But it's fool's gold: Julia's working as an escort for the shady Lilo Gottschick (Suzanne Ziellenbach). Lilo was once also one of Elisabeth's students and still hates her. Lilo also wants to hire Elke and Elke agrees. However, she is shocked when she learns that Julia sleeps with her clients. Thus, she quits the job at Lilo's agency. Elke doesn't suspect that Lilo has an affair with Michael. One day, Michael rapes Elke who is still a virgin. A few days later, Michael is murdered and Elke is the main suspect. It takes a while until the true culprit is found: It is Michael's ex-wife Annette Döring (Claudia Arnold-Brauner). Shortly after, Elke learns that her mother was killed in a car accident. Her father wants her to move away with him, but Elke decides to stay in town. She moves in with her friends Marina Geppert (Natascha Pfeiffer) and Martin Sommer (Oliver Polster) and starts working as a receptionist at Frank's doctor's office. Frank falls in love with Elke but she is still traumatized and rejects him. In the meantime, Julia falls in love with Peter whom she doesn't tell about her job as a prostitute. When he learns the truth, he wants to leave town with her to forget the past, but misunderstandings between the couple lead to a sudden break-up. Julia leaves for Cyprus, but returns a while later and starts working at the "Classic Hotel". She soon gets Heiko a job as a night porter. Julia and Heiko start spending time together which angers Peter. Tina and Frank are visited by a woman who introduces herself as their presumed dead aunt Helga (1st actress: Nora Bendig). She soon becomes an essential part of the Ullrich household and embarks on a relationship with Daniel, but then she is haunted by her past: Her dangerous ex-husband Erik West (Michael Griem) has fled from an asylum and is somewhere out there to get her. Marina, who at first works as a waitress at the "Parkcafé", hopes to meet the man of her dreams. She is, however, ill-fated. Because of her naivety, Marina is caught in the clutches of the fortuneteller Frau Simone (Brigitte Mira). Soon she spends her whole money for sessions with Frau Simone and only trusts the words of the old woman. Frau Simone tells Marina that Elisabeth is a bad influence and that she will die on the next 13th. Furthermore, there's the young married couple Bertram (Dirk Borchardt) and Denise Köhler (Viktoria Voigt), who are friends with Peter and Tina. They don't have enough money for them and their little son to survive. When Denise tells her husband that's pregnant again, Bertram asks her to get an abortion. As she doesn't have the money for a legit doctor, Denise goes to a quack doctor. Afterwards, she has medical problems. However, all ends well for the Köhlers: Bertram finds a well-paid job and he and Denise are last seen moving to a new and spacious apartment.

Harzig lasted in the role until 2002. Tina Ullrich-Zimmermann was recast briefly in 2000 with Ulrike Frank when the character was brought back to launch GZSZ's primetime spin-off "Großstadtträume". The show failed big time and was canceled after 7 episodes. All the others were recurring characters and none of them lasted beyond the first year. Two characters were recast when they were re-introduced as recurring characters in later years: Richard Graf (briefly in 1996) and Claudia Wedemaier-Löpelmann (for several months in 1993-1994).
