  1. I'd love to know the answer to that one. The scrapbook is super detailed about the late 80s, but gets very sparse in the early 90s. I am still continuously surprised to learn about storylines that I didn't even know about. I keep wishing the person who ran that tumblr would suddenly pop back up and resume it...
  2. I'm so confused by this non-issue being discussed that I actually went back to check the video. There was a momentary confusion over different Scotts, while at least four people were mentioning at least four different Scotts. That has absolutely nothing to do with memory from my perspective. At a later point he wasn't able to reproduce the name of Steve Bassett, who was the co-star that was with him, Kathy and Julianne in during the Sabrina storyline in Europe. Can we please remember that he was on the show for 50 years? He was asked about a co-star that he has exactly one storyline with, 34 years ago. If that's a memory issue than I think we all have memory issues. As others have said, the actresses had trouble remembering which of their own children was born during the Spa storyline. I'm sorry, people are entitled to their own opinion, but I think these comments are highly disrespectful to a wonderful man who has given his entire life for this show. If we want to get more vets to appear in these chats, this is not the way to go about it. I, for one, remain absolutely shocked over how young Don Hastings came across, both inside and out. He was the absolute highlight. I'd love to see which other vets are game to do one of these.
  3. Agreed. When it was announced I was a bit "meh" on it, but I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Just as a quick aside. I don't think I have ever seen the cast photo that is used as the thumbnail for this video. Must have been '99, from the looks of it. The only person I can't immediately place is the guy behind Hal (although when you tell me who it is, I'm sure I'll feel stupid for not thinking of it). I'm not sure if people have like photo collections or something... would anyone happen to have this photo? I'd love to take a better look at it.
  4. Holy sh*t. Don Hastings was the absolute highlight! He hasn't aged a day since 2010.
  5. I have that episode jotted down in a list of undated episodes. Oakdalian's channel only places it in June 1991 I think, without an exact date. But from what you're saying, it sounds like the wedding had already happened in the Death Of David Stewart episode? Then it would have to be June 3 or June 4 (or May 31, if Oakdalian is wrong about June). Since the June 3 episode is in the archives, it seems like a good educated guess. I'll see if I can dig up something. Thanks for your continued alertness while you're watching these episodes!
  6. What's interesting about all of this is that SoapClassics was actuallty working on an online platform to release episodes. In The Netherlands (and I believe South-Africa?) it had set out a site which contained the first five months of 2005 (The Netherlands) and two weeks in August/September 2007 (South-Africa). Quite a bit of music had been digitally removed, which was a bit odd, especially when characters were dancing to nothing, but the episodes were very watchable and of high quality (visually, that is. Early 2005 wasn't my favorite era of the show, and I say that as someone who only watched the 00s originally. The show ticked back up in the summer of '05 in my opinion). Unfortunately, soon after this project was set up, SoapClassics went out of business. I'm glad I saved the episodes immediately.
  7. Our next checkpoint is November 13, 1984, which is in the P&G Archives as #7377. This means 2 episodes were pre-empted in between, which is problematic, because we have already confirmed 3 pre-emptions. Therefore, one of the "confirmed" episode numbers must, actually, be wrong. However, if we take this period and the next three periods (both of which remain open) together, it still works out. These are the three episodes we have confirmed as pre-empted: November 22, 1984: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] November 23, 1984: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] December 25, 1984: Christmas [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] To make matters worse, we have a strong candidate for yet a fourth pre-emption in this period: January 1, 1985: New Year's Day [January 1 episodes were pre-empted in every other year since 1974, with the exception of 2004] November 13, 1984 - March 19, 1985: 2 pre-emptions, yet 3 pre-emptions confirmed; 1 more strong candidate. Status: open/error -- August 2, 1984 is also in the P&G Archives as #7307. Based on the episode numbers, 3 episodes were pre-empted. We know about 2 of them for sure: September 3, 1984: US Open September 7, 1984: US Open We don't have any further evidence of possible pre-emptions, but I'm assuming the remaining pre-emption belongs in the period above instead. August 2, 1984 - November 13, 1984: 3 pre-emptions, 2 confirmed, 0 candidates. Status: open -- The 7,000th episode is widely reported to have aired on May 20, 1983. This would mean 7 episodes were pre-empted in between. We know about 6: September 5, 1983: US Open September 9, 1983: US Open November 24, 1983: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] November 25, 1983: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] December 26, 1983: Extended Christmas holiday [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] January 2, 1984: Extended New Year's holiday [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] For the remaining pre-emption, we have no contenders. However, I'm assuming this pre-emption belongs in one of the above periods instead. May 20, 1983 - August 2, 1984: 7 pre-emptions, 6 confirmed, 0 candidates. Status: open -- If we take all three of the above periods together, the numbers actually work out (although that's a big if, obviously): Between May 20, 1983 and March 19, 1985, 12 episodes were pre-empted. We know about 11 for sure: September 5, 1983: US Open September 9, 1983: US Open November 24, 1983: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] November 25, 1983: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] December 26, 1983: Extended Christmas holiday [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] January 2, 1984: Extended New Year's holiday [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] September 3, 1984: US Open September 7, 1984: US Open November 22, 1984: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] November 23, 1984: Thanksgiving [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] December 25, 1984: Christmas [pre-emption confirmed in The Journal listing] For the remaining pre-emption, we have 1 strong contender: January 1, 1985: New Year's Day [January 1 episodes were pre-empted in every other year since 1974, with the exception of 2004] May 20, 1983 - March 19, 1985: 12 pre-emptions, 11 confirmed, 1 contender. Status: open
  8. Also, at the time of his first appearance, Luke was still being played by Christopher Tavani, and, therefore, much younger than Karl's character. This was when Will had just been released from prison. Will saved Luke from his bullies at a time when Lily was trying hard to get Will locked up again (as she couldn't forgive him for murdering her sister). About a year later, Luke has been SORAS-ed (with Jake Weary, then Van Hansis) and started hanging out with Kevin.
  9. In case anyone's interested, I've turned the list into an excel file with filters, which makes it easy to search by last name, first name, title, actor, time period, or even info, when you are looking for a specific someone. I'd be more than happy to share that with anyone who's interested. Just send me a PM.
  10. Outstanding! I love finding channels I didn't know about. I see the episode also ends in a "join us tomorrow". There is an 1998 episode, including a "join us again Monday", that I did not yet find elsewhere on the channel as well. Thanks for the heads-up, I made sure to subscribe! I'll add in the info once I get to the complete overhaul! Sorry it's been a while, these are crazy times we live in. We'll pick things up at November 3, 1987, which is where we got last time. The next confirmed episode number is #7904 on December 9, 1986, which comes from a script. This means there were 19 pre-emptions (which means it's Iran-Contra time!). We know about these 5 pre-emptions: December 25, 1986: Christmas January 1, 1987: New Year's Day July 23, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? [pre-emption confirmed by Dan Region in the credits] September 7, 1987: US Open September 11, 1987: US Open For the 14 remaining pre-emptions, I have 17 potential candidates: July 7, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 8, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 9, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 10, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 13, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 14, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 15, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 16, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 17, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 20, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 27, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 28, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 29, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 30, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? July 31, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? August 3, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? August 4, 1987: Iran-Contra hearings? December 9, 1986 - November 3, 1987: 19 pre-emptions, 5 confirmed, 17 candidates. Status: open -- The November 7, 1986 episode (Hello, Barbara) is in the P&G Archives as #7884, which means that 2 episodes were pre-empted. We know about both of them: November 27, 1986: Thanksgiving November 28, 1986: Thanksgiving November 7, 1986 - December 9, 1986: 2 pre-emptions, both confirmed. Status: closed -- The April 2, 1986 episode (30th anniversary) is in the P&G Corporate Archives and in the ATAS-UCLA archives as #7729, which means 2 episodes were pre-empted. We know about both of them: September 1, 1986: US Open September 5, 1986: US Open April 2, 1986 - November 7, 1986: 2 pre-emptions, both confirmed. Status: closed -- The March 19, 1985 episode was #7465 according to a script, which means 7 episodes were pre-empted. We know about all 7: September 2, 1985: US Open September 6, 1985: US Open November 28, 1985: Thanksgiving November 29, 1985: Thanksgiving December 25, 1985: Christmas January 1, 1986: New Year's Day January 28, 1986: Challenger disaster coverage March 19, 1985 - April 2, 1986: 7 pre-emptions, all confirmed. Status: closed
  11. Thanks for sharing! I've always wondered just when exactly Wagner & MacLaughlin were written out. It's so interesting to see the article singling out Helen Wagner, instead of going for "Wagner and MacLaughlin out of a job". I'm used to Helen being mentioned on her her own from the many years she was (thankfully) on the show after Don's death, but I always assumed before that it was always Don & Helen.
  12. 3 new episode numbers? Nice work @Paul Raven. I'll try to process these ASAP. I will also continue working my way back, connecting episode numbers, as I was doing, I've just been a bit busy lately.
  13. That's the "was cast on a third show" I was referring to above, indeed. Thanks slick!
  14. Perhaps I can be of some assistance... Here's a screencap of Sgt. Doyle from 1980. Can anyone confirm that this is Guardino?
  15. I just realized, to my shock, that one of the most celebrated and longest-running actors from As The World Turns is still missing from the list. I can't believe I hadn't noticed that before, I guess I'd always thought he'd been done somewhere in the first 20 pages. In addition to his 35 years on ATWT, I know he had at least one other daytime role, and he was cast on a third show. He was also nominated for 8 Daytime Emmy's, taking home 2 of them. Slick, would you be so kind as to do a hopper profile for the legendary... Larry Bryggman
