  1. OLTL Tribute Thread

    Found this on youtube, some OLTL episode – albeit dubbed in German. The show ran in Germany for a brief time in the late 80s/90s. This episode probably is from 1980 or 1981.

    Some different versions of the German opening and closing credits for GL ("Springfield Story"): As the World Turns ("Jung und leidenschaftlich"): Days of our Lives ("Zeit der Sehnsucht"): And Santa Barbara ("California Clan"):

    I don't know the reasons for the change, but Italy's not the only country to do so. In France, they've always used this theme song for the show: In the early years, they used a completely different opening: In Germany, they only changed the "The Bold / And / The Beautiful" title cards – and in some instances, the order of the pictures was different. When the show was first shown here, it was known as "Fashion Affairs". Later it was re-named to "Reich und Schön".
  4. German soaps: GZSZ, UU & AWZ

    After five years, Linda Marlen Runge is leaving GZSZ later this summer. The actress joined the cast in August 2013 as Anni Brehme, a tough and sharp-tongued woman who quickly turned out to be a lesbian. After a one-night-stand with her new roommate Pia, Anni set her sights on Jasmin Flemming. The very popular couple broke up in 2015, but got together in 2017 until Jasmin left Berlin to focus on her career as a fashion designer. In 2016, Anni was jealous when Jasmin started Frederic Riefflin – who later turned out to be Jasmin's biological father. When Frederic was accidentially murdered by Maren, Anni was also involved in the case as she helped Katrin and Maren to get rid of the corpse. Earlier this year, Anni became Katrin's new personal assistant. It wasn't long before both women realized their attraction for one another. The big problem: Katrin is Jasmin's mother. Anni's exit will definitely leave a huge void. She's really been a great character, maybe even one of the best GZSZ ever had. French promo for GZSZ:

    I always loved the music that Italy used for their version of the B&B opening. I think they eventually began using the original music in 2011.

  7. German soaps: GZSZ, UU & AWZ

    AWZ is quite boring right now (especially the endless Marian / Ingo beer brewing saga), but apparently they're bringing in a few new characters this summer. And Jenny and Deniz are finally getting married. UU is the same as always – capable, yet a bit predictable I think the most promising storyline is "Larissa has a hit and run accident". A bit late, but better than never: Episode Counts May 2018 Actor names in italics denote recurring roles or guest appearances.

  8. German soaps: GZSZ, UU & AWZ

    GZSZ will debut on French and (French-speaking) Belgian tv in July 2018 as "Au Rythme de la Vie", dubbed with a French language track. This is the first time that the series has been sold to a foreign market. In France, the soap will air on France 2 at 9.50 am. In Belgium, La Deux has bought the rights. Apparently the first package consists of 80 episodes, starting with #6063 from August 2016.
  9. German soaps: GZSZ, UU & AWZ

    Yes, the episode that is labeled as "6515" consists of episodes 6515, 6516 and 6517. The primetime special was quite successful: 3,35 million people tuned in (total households: 12.6%, demos 18-49: 24.2%). The following two episodes received even higher ratings and were GZSZ's most-watched episodes since May 2017. AWZ's ratings also went up at the end of May (total viewers: 2.12 million, demos 18-49: 16%). Btw, did you know about this website? https://www.soapchannel.tv/start It's basically like TV now, but for people who don't live in Germany. The website is managed by UFA Serial Drama, the production company behind GZSZ & Co. All the episodes are geoblocked in German-speaking countries (so that should be Germany, Austria and Switzerland), but should be available anywhere else abroad. The archives go back to February 2017. Right now they have episodes of GZSZ, AWZ and UU but apparently they're trying to upload other (cancelled) soaps as well.
  10. German soaps: GZSZ, UU & AWZ

    Some more promotional photos for tonight's primetime special: The main stars: Maren (Eva Mona Rodekirchen), Sophie (Lea Marlen Woitack), Paul (Niklas Osterloh), Emily (Anne Menden), Philip (Jörn Schlönvoigt), Shirin (Gamze Senol), and John (Felix von Jascheroff). In addition, Erik (recurring star Patrick Heinrich) is also involved. Sursprisingly, all of these characters – except Emily – are usually rated as "2nd class characters" because they have never been used as the show's figureheads before. And clearly the most controversial story right now: Anni falling in love with Katrin, her ex-girlfriend's mother.

    Judging from last night's performances, I think we'll be heading to Cyprus next year. Estonia, Ireland, Austria, Finland and Lithuania were also flawless but none of them will win on Saturday. Israel was the biggest disappointment of the night. Official Recap:
