  1. I literally just found out that Bissett and Estes were married for quite some time and have kids together. Apologies to the both of them. I'm sure they had chemistry, it just didn't translate well onto the screen in my humble opinion.
  2. Finally caught up fully on this thread. I agree with a lot of what's been said, and disagree with a few other things as well. I feel like I've been watching 3 or 4 separate shows, all of which were pretty great. S1 feels like the 90210-like, learning a moral lesson each week type of show. I know some people didn't really like it, but I did. S2-S4 was obviously peak MP, with the bombing of the place right in its center. The huge cast turnovers - not once, but twice - are a bit jarring, and the later seasons certainly suffered for it, although they still had their moments that made them watchabl
  3. I have an episode synopsis for that day by CBS itself (was on their website, retrieved through the internet archive), so that pre-emption did not apply to ATWT. Still, thanks for letting me know!
  4. Well, it's finally here. Last night, I finished the series finale. I started watching Melrose Place somewhere around 2012, and have watched on a weekly basis, with a few breaks between seasons. What I love about this (and HATE about binge-watching), is that a show really becomes a big part of your life as you grow with the show. It also makes me feel a bit melancholy that's it's finally over now. The show has definitely had a lot of ups and downs, but I really did love it. For the past 8 years, I've been avoiding this thread (with one minor exception) out of fear of being spoiled, but I d
  5. While I was digging into some historial newspapers for the Full Episode List, I found this fun excerpt in the March 11, 1984 edition of a paper called "The Journal" Although it's only a regional pre-emption, that doesn't help my episodes project, I can't help but wonder about the "something big" that was happening on the show in the week of March 5-9, 1984, involving Craig Montgomery being forced to confront his evil ways. Is this around the time he bombed Steve's truck?
  6. Ok, so I've recently been digging into some historial newspapers to find listings, and I have reason to believe that in 1981 Thanksgiving Friday was NOT pre-empted. I realize that although I've assumed both Thanksgiving days to have been pre-empted from the early 80s onwards, I have no actual Thanksgiving Friday pre-emptions confirmed before 1986, forcing me to re-think a lot of the info I have on the early 80s. I'll need to do some double checking on the years between 1979 and 1986, which will take some time. I only wish I had found this before real life started to kick back in a
  7. Another thing I've just noticed is that the episode numbers between the confirmed April 27, 1979 and June 17, 1980 episodes line up perfectly. If it is true that all of these episodes aired, it means that 1979 had no pre-emptions for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Eve, nor did 1980 have a pre-emption for New Year's Day. Another thing, though, is that UCLA has episode #6055 in their collection, which according to their info was taped on (Wednesday) August 29, 1979. Following the above logic, that episode would have aired on (Tuesday) September 4, 1979, less than a week after
  8. Funny enough, I already had that episode number linked to the episode in my file on my computer, but I see I forgot to update the 1982 section in this thread. I was able to figure out the episode numbers to a lot of 1982 episodes based off of the few episodes Patricia Bruder Debrovner uploaded a few months back. But it's always good when any of the episode numbers I've figured out are actually confirmed, so thanks as always! Bumping up 1982: We have almost connected 1982 to 1981, but what's odd is that there need to have been 6 pre-emptions between November 2,
  9. Me again! Would someone be able to confirm that the guy with Barbara / Eduardo at around 16.32 is Mark Kevin Lewis as Gregory Varner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W2sFg4o0Z8
  10. 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)?
  11. 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
  12. 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 h
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. Updated: ^ Note: this episode was, by my count, not previously on YouTube!
  20. 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 S
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Nice! More screenshots will follow when I have a bit more time. I'm so happy we can actually solve some of these mysteries!
