  1. Sorry to re-open this thread, but does anyone know what happened to these tumblr pages? I have been enjoying reading old ATWT recaps for the last few months, but I notice they stop in the early 90s. The SOD covers page is updated through 2014, so I'm wondering if more will be posted, but since the pages seem to have been inactive for a while now, I have to assume the worst... Is there any other place where I can find early to mid-90's recaps (pre-soapcentral)?
  2. Great catch @adrnyc ! Sorry for not responding to this earlier. Since the February 16 episode ends with Dan Region inviting us to join again on Monday, I had marked the February 19 episode as having aired, but obviously, an unplanned pre-emption could have taken place. Since the 21 episode picks up directly after the 20 episode, and I assume ATWST hasn't mis-labeled an entire week, I am going to assume February 19 may have indeed been pre-empted. Please share if you find more during your watching. The only way we are ever going to find the real pre-emptions is by actually comparing the ends of episodes to the beginnings of subsequent episodes. This also means that between December 8, 1989 and May 11, 1990, in addition to the January 1 and February 19 episodes, only 1 more episode was pre-empted.
  3. OK, let's see if we can figure this thing out. Two questions (which you may not have an answer to, but I'll ask them anyway): 1.) When you say "rotated in this manner" do you mean they kept going in that specific order (NBC-CBS-ABC-NBC-CBS-ABC etc.), or just that they rotated in whatever order? 2.) When you say "CBS covered 19 days", do you mean CBS took on 19 days of the rotation cycle, or CBS aired Watergate 19 times in general (including the hearings that were covered by all networks)? I copied the Watergate-section of 1973 below to have some workspace. If I have interpreted your info correctly, we get this: 1973 5 17 Thursday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 18 Friday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 21 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 5 22 Tuesday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 23 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 24 Thursday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 25 Friday ??? no hearings 1973 5 28 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 5 29 Tuesday ??? no hearings 1973 5 30 Wednesday ??? no hearings 1973 5 31 Thursday ??? no hearings 1973 6 1 Friday ??? no hearings 1973 6 4 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 6 5 Tuesday ??? Watergate? NBC 1973 6 6 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS 1973 6 7 Thursday ??? Watergate? ABC 1973 6 8 Friday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 11 Monday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 12 Tuesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 13 Wednesday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 14 Thursday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 15 Friday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 18 Monday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 19 Tuesday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 20 Wednesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 21 Thursday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 22 Friday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 25 Monday ??? Watergate! ABC? 1973 6 26 Tuesday ??? Watergate! NBC? 1973 6 27 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS? 1973 6 28 Thursday ??? Watergate! ABC? 1973 6 29 Friday ??? Watergate! NBC? 1973 7 2 Monday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 7 3 Tuesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 7 4 Wednesday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 7 5 Thursday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 7 6 Friday ??? Watergate? ABC? The exclamation marks indicate that we know CBS aired Watergate. The question marks indicate that CBS might have aired Watergate. The left column is based on a rotation cycle that goes NBC-CBS-ABC. IF all of that is correct, we may have just uncovered 17 out of 19 Watergate pre-emptions. Obviously, that's still a big IF. ANY info, from ANYONE, would be very much appreciated!
  4. Updated: Long overdue... Courtesy of Paul Raven's info! @Paul Raven March 25 was a Sunday... so that must have been a misprint, possibly the date was March 23 or 26?
  5. 1996 this time... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHaOhkgMkOo Around 4 minutes in, a scene starts involving three men, none of whom I recognize in the slightest. I think they have something to do with this Bill Mason figure that kept being mentioned in the episode, although I'm not sure any one of them is him. Other names that I think are related to Mason are Clegg, Switzer and Quinlan. I must admit I'm not very well-versed in 1996, and I'm quite hazy on the Bill Mason plot in general, so if anyone could shed some light on it, that would be great.
  6. Wait... you're saying AFTER KL's Nella left with Beau, she returned with VR in the role? I don't think that's right, is it? I have been trying to find out where KL's stint ends and VR's stint begins, but the character is on so little that it's kind of hard to figure out.
  7. I'm going to keep doing this, as long as you all don't mind... June 28, 1988: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUoBZGf5FLw At 23:27, the first prize winner is drawn at the AIDS ball. Am I correct in saying that it is Nella Franklin? If so, does anyone know if it is Kasi Lemmons or Victoria Rowell in the role? Thanks in advance!
  8. Could someone help me identify a few characters in the December 30, 1993 episode? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiGTddxH-K8 I am trying to find out who the couple is that Duncan and Jessica run into at around 2:44. Could it possibly be Dick Latessa and Ann Mitchell as Ambrose and Jane? I am also wondering if I'm correct in assuming the man they run into at around 25:53 is Jessica's brother Lamar? Is it Michael Genet in the role? Was Lamar involved with security at the Falcon Club? Thanks in advance! I think I may have found it: Neal Jones as Randy Selkirk. The character is mentioned at the start of the episode.
  9. It's not an uncovered 70s or 80s episode, but munecojim recently uploaded (among others) the February 16, 1999 episode, which to my knowledge was not previously on YouTube. I have updated the full episode list accordingly.
  10. Updated: ^ Note: this episode was, by my count, not previously on YouTube!
  11. Bailey Chase (ex-Chris, ATWT) is joining S.W.A.T. https://tvline.com/2019/12/19/bailey-chase-swat-season-3-cast/ Jennifer Ferrin (ex-Jennifer, ATWT) was in a list of most prolific television actors of 2019. Apparently, she was on The Blacklist, Instinct, God Friended Me, Evil and The Passage. I had no idea she had appeared in all of these shows. Good for her, I always really loved her as Jennifer. https://tvline.com/2019/12/19/2019-busiest-tv-actors-katherine-mcnamara-aaron-paul-darcy-carden/ I also saw a post on facebook indicating that Marnie Schulenburg (ex-Alison, ATWT) just gave birth to a healthy baby
  12. I've been wondering when the show started incorporating Thanksgiving as well. From my experience, those 1979 episodes on Youtube are definitely missing bits and pieces, so there may have been a Thanksgiving celebration that was not uploaded. Interestingly enough, though, if the dates on those '79 episodes are correct, the Friday episode actually aired in that year. Although the 1980 episodes aren't up there, in order to make sense of the episode numbers that ARE out there, both Thanksgiving dates must have actually had episodes that aired (the Thursday one in '79 could have aired as well, but that one is not on YT). By 1982, in order to make sense of the episode numbers, both Thanksgiving dated must have been pre-empted, and for every year since I have the pre-emptions either confirmed or strongly suspected. So either a shift took place around '81, or some of the episode numbers/dates out there are not correct. In answer to your original question, @DramatistDreamer, you can find all episodes that are available on YT (to my knowledge) in the ATWT Full Episode List thread. I'd venture to say that Thanksgiving was celebrated on the show on the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving usually, so all of those episodes that are marked as being on YT may feature some of that holiday sentiment you're looking for
  13. These dates have been taken from Abigail's profile on Soapcentral, which is known to contain many mistakes in its profiles. Since the episodes are sadly not online, I have not been able to verify this personally. There's one more appearance on October 7 (as DRW50 pointed out), but that episode is unfortunately also still missing. I know this won't satisfy the desire to see ER as Abigail, but Soapcentral does have recaps online for all of those episodes, which would at least give you an idea of the context in which the character appeared. This is the funniest thing I've read all week. 😂
  14. Nice! More screenshots will follow when I have a bit more time. I'm so happy we can actually solve some of these mysteries!
  15. William Fichtner (Josh/Rod, ATWT) will make his directorial debut with a film called Cold Brook, which was written by Fichtner and Cain DeVore (Lance Whittaker, ATWT). https://trailers.apple.com/trailers/independent/cold-brook/
  16. Another question: I've been transcribing some of the end credit sequences, in an attempt to learn more about the cast changes and the minor characters. I came upon the 1993-12-30 episode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiGTddxH-K8), which has quite a list of characters/actors. Unfortunately, someone decided it would be a good idea to use a red font (presumably because of the holidays), rendering the list nearly unreadable. I think I've been able to figure out most of the names though. Would someone be able to help me read the two missing characters/actors?

  17. That's Burke? I've never seen him, but I had him pictured quite differently. Burke wasn't Gunnar's brother, though. Gunnar slept with Burke's wife, resulting in Dusty. Judging from this photo, it does look like it's him. Was he involved with Kim at all?
  18. I'm wondering if someone can help me out. I recently rewatched the Tom & Margo wedding episode (1983-06-01), and there are a few characters that I have trouble identifying. I've managed to capture some screenshots, which I will attach. The first one I think is Cricket, whom I have seen in only one or two other episodes and am therefore not sure of. Is it indeed her? The second was seen with Kim at the wedding, but since the whole event is such an impromptu gathering, he might not be related to Kim story-wise (he came from a tennis match, apparently). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a good close-up, but you can make him out next to Kim in the shot. Side note: I love Kathryn Hays and Kim, but the carrying-around-a-dog-look seems like a rather extreme departure of the character's essence, no? The third one appeared from a limo with Barbara. During the close-up shot the music was rather ominous. I got the impression he's some sort of bodyguard, but I also got the impression he's not who he's pretending to be. I believe Barbara is married to Gunnar at this time, right? Any idea who this man is? Thanks in advance!
  19. Great finds, especially regarding Watergate. I'll update over the weekend or next week. Keep it coming!
  20. Not to take anything away from what you've said, because you make a number of good points, but the hook-up between Craig and Jennifer happened years after Bryant's death, during the time when JP was headwriter (although it was, indeed, utterly ridiculous). But Craig/Jennifer/Bryant were never written in a triangle sort of way.
  21. RIP Hogan. It's so hard for me to comment on his ATWT tenure objectively, but here it goes: First of all, I get why people may have disliked Hogan's writing. Since the show's end, I've been watching more and more classic clips and I agree that Sheffer's ATWT is nothing like Marland's ATWT. That Hunt Block is not the same Craig Montgomery that Scott Bryce was. That the show's identity was not what it used to be. However... I started watching ATWT in 2000, just a few months before Hogan came in. His version of the show is essentially the version of the show that drew me in. I loved the Holden/Lily/Simon/Rose storyline. True, the reveal that Iva had given birth to another child is a bit of a retcon, but as someone else said, one that worked for me. I loved that the show brought back Iva, and later Caleb, Julie and Cal for short stints. Something that wouldn't really happen much beyond that point. I loved Scott Holroyd as Paul and Paul and Rose were my favorite couple at the time. I loved Mitzi too. I loved the boathouse explosion and Barbara spiralling into darkness. I thought the spa storyline was a fantastic way to handle three pregnant lead actresses at the same time, but I also loved the friendship between Carly, Emily and Rose that followed from it (although that was mostly undone after Rose's death). I loved Jake and Molly. I loved Simon and Katie, and then I loved Mike and Katie. I loved Bryant, Abigail and Adam (although not KO's Jennifer). I loved Hal and Emily. And most unpopularly of all... I loved Hunt Block as Craig (Again, in hindsight, I realize that he was NOT the same Craig that Bryce had always portrayed in such a nuanced way... but at the time I didn't know any better). That's not to say his writing wasn't without flaws. In addition to the writing of Craig, I think the vets were given much too little airtime (although more than they would have under JP). I remember seeing Susan in a late 2001 episode and having no idea who she was. I think an attempt was made to feature the vets a bit more with the Rick Decker storyline in 2003, but that was only temporary. And 2004 was one of the worst years for the show IMO (I actually liked 2005 and 2006 better than 2004). But overall, and I could imagine that not everyone (especially those who grew up with Marland's ATWT) would feel this way, Oakdale still felt like a community for much of Hogan's stint, whereas under JP it never felt like that at all. Obviously, we are not all going to agree on these things. And that's good, we shouldn't. We are passionate about our shows. But having come in to the show post-Marland, I think Sheffer's version of the show was one of the better alternatives. Compared to some of the mid-90s episodes I've seen online, Hogan's ATWT really wasn't all that bad.
