  1. 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/
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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). Unfortuna
  5. Great finds, especially regarding Watergate. I'll update over the weekend or next week. Keep it coming!
  6. 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.
  7. 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 dr
  8. Thank you both! This makes it much easier to piece everything together!
  9. I have recently finally gotten around to reading classic SOD recaps and articles, which are so generously posted on tumblr (https://classicsodcovers.tumblr.com/post/156216270838/a-complete-list-of-my-soap-opera-related-tumblrs). However, since I'm not from the US and am therefore not very familiar with the SOD magazine, I am struggling a bit with the dates. I'm wondering if someone could fill me in on these things: How often did the magazine come out? Do the recaps cover a week or a month or even longer? I'm trying to use the recaps to complement my own timeline (for
  10. This whole twitter account is very interesting to follow! I feel like it was longer than that. I can't be sure though. He was one of those characters that was just always around in the background. I'd say he was on as early as 2000, when I started watching (could have been earlier), and I'd say he lasted into 2003 at least.
  11. Sorry for getting back to you late, I've had a few busy days. First off: every piece of info, however big or small, helps. Thanks for letting me know! I checked and #4072 doesn't make sense since we've previously established the 1971-09-23 episode to be #4007. Even if every episode in between aired, the December 20 episode could only be #4069 at most. However, if I'm interpreting those youtube comments correctly, I think they're saying that the December 20 episode was #4068 (which means 1 episode would have been pre-empted in between September 23 and December 20).
  12. Would someone be able to verify the relationship between Jef Hamlin and Rick Hamlin for me? Since Jef was a love interest for Emily and I think Rick was paired with Susan for a second at some point, I've always assumed that Rick is Jef's father. But as it turns out, I can't seem to find this anywhere. Another question: The character profiles on Soapcentral (which, I am aware, contain a lot of errors) state that Jessica Griffin and Tucker Foster used to date. However, as far as I'm aware, Tucker left the canvas in 1985, while Jessica didn't come in until 1986/1987 (I've
  13. That's actually interesting, because they way I've always understood it, Molly is Carly's cousin through Ray, not through Sheila. So she isn't Rosanna's cousin at all. Must have been a mix-up on the part of the writers.
  14. OK, so I needed to find 10 more pre-emptions. Based on btm0815's comments, that included the January 17, 1994 and February 21, 1994 episodes. I had 8 more candidates listed, but I have since found out that the O.J. Simpson pre-emptions likely lasted a day longer, including July 8, 1994. Since it is widely known that soaps were pre-empted a lot for O.J. and since my source for the Oslo Accords was very unsure about whether or not that led to any pre-emptions, I'm going to place an estimated guess that the show was pre-empted on July 8, 1994 and that the show aired on September 13, 1993, which
  15. Actually, scratch that. I think I may have just connected episode numbers all the way back to episode #9,102 on October 2, 1991. It went a little fast for my taste though, and my head is spinning a bit, so I would like to doublecheck some things tomorrow before I post.
  16. OK, I'm really excited, because I have just had a major breakthrough in my research. If you'll remember from when I first posted the above, I've been trying to figure out ATWT's episode history (something which I have since moved to the separate As The World Turns Full Episode List thread). In doing so, I have divided the entire history of the show into 13 "eras" which are really bridges between confirmed episode numbers. The 13th and final "era" stretched from episode #10,000 in 1995 to the end of the show (or, really, 1998, from which point on every episode number is known). In a
