  1. This is so cool!! Can you buy this anywhere??
  2. It was a nice chat and my God, all of them look amazing! Ladies are so gorgeous and men are such hunks. They shared some nice stories. Good seeing them all.
  3. I really miss my writing. I just never have the time anymore even though I constantly think of new ideas and new stories and characters.. but just no time
  4. I always hated that they dropped Stefano's will & mysterious gifts in 2002 on DAYS.
  5. GL, ATWT and EON aired in Croatia, but I believe all aired only for one year in early to mid 90's with episodes from late 80s.
  6. Cool! You are welcome. Btw, I saw now that in July 1987, you should double check Andy's numbers.
  7. Glad to help Whatever is best for you. I personally do it per actor all of my stats, but one day I may switch per character as well. But for now, for me it is okay the way you did it 1987.
  8. @will81 Thank you so much for providing us the 1987 statistics!! Love them! If I may, I noticed just some possibly incorrect totals.. maybe just have a look, as I am not sure if the total/sum is off or the total is fine, but then the there is an extra appearance for the following in March 1987: - David Kimble - you have total 3, but it appears he was on 4 different episodes - Esther - same as above - Jack Abbott (Terry Lester) - you have total 7, but it appears he was on 8 different episodes Thanks once again!!
  9. Well UK has this model for their soaps. I believe Eastenders airs 4 days a week, Corrie 3 days a week (although with 5 episodes) and Emmerdale 5 days a week (with 6 episodes). So possibilities are endless Also I always thought that networks should have cut down the soaps in US (GL, AMC, OLTL etc) to half an hour before completely cancelling them. That might have worked.
  10. Oh yes! That too! I actually enjoyed that whole storyline quite a lot because I adored the performances of Sabyn Genet and Rick Hearst as Tricia and Matt.
  11. Matt Clark did it to frame Nick on Y&R by unplugging his breathing cord and putting it in Nick's hand to make it seem that Nick did it. I loved that scene. I was spoilerfree and it was so shocking to me back then.
  12. Oh wow, amazing! Thank you so much!! Fyi, do you know the US date for the first episode available from 1982?
  13. OMG, thank you so much @will81!!
  14. Oh awesome! Thanks @will81 I love collecting soap aircounts, so this is fun! Thanks!!
  15. Ok, thank you both! I know AW has been there since the beginning, that is why I was surprised to hear he might be killed off.
  16. Interesting. I am surprised that YR never grabbed Germany attention while BB did. I understand why 2005/2006 episodes didnt catch anyone, but the 80/90s stuff was good. I guess since BB aired from the 1st episode, people got into it more easily..
  17. Oh cool! Thanks @will81 ! I had no idea it aired in Germany.
  18. Oh there is a German Y&R site? I never knew YR was in Germany. I know B&B (Reich und Schon) was huge in Germany and that GL (Springfield Story) at one point was popular..
  19. Chicago Fire (season 4), Chicago PD (season 3), Superstore (season 3), Black-ish (season 2), Umbrella Academy (season 2), The Boys (season 2). Just finished season 1 of Greenleaf and season 1 of Ozark. I just dropped Big Brother All Stars from my list. Could not anymore....
  20. Yeah, she was Dorothy and Ben was S.B. Initially she thought it was Casey, before realizing it was Ben.
  21. Oh I loved Max, Tanya, Lauren and Abi.. this whole family was one of my favorites! I am glad they will not kill him off.
  22. Well in the beginning of the show, I think they tried to intermingle the cast more. Vanessa, Gabi and Meg were shown as friends. I remember them even singing "Stop in the name of love" together at the bar, like karaoke fun night together. And yes, I believe there was a cyber cafe.. Java cafe?
  23. I always thought that Sunset Beach took those big storylines from the movies... Terror Island was like Scream and Shockwave was like Poseidon Adventure.
  24. So I was wondering what does everyone watch today (not a lot of choices left) or what have you watched through the years? Me personally, I do not watch any soaps anymore. I broke the habit once and even though I returned for some special events (like DAYS' 50th anniversary) I never really stuck around. But here is what I used to watch: Santa Barbara - was the first soap I watched, I have seen it almost in its entirety. I missed the first year, but other than that I watched pretty much everything else, even though the last 1-2 years was hard to watch. Loving - watched only 1 year that aired here. It appears it was the 1987/1988/1989 (during the year when Steve got killed, in a bank robbery, Ned discovered that his girlfriend April was a prostitute and "Clay" came back from the dead) Guiding Light - I only watched 1 year that it aired here (it was the late 80s, I only remember Johnny Bauer having cancer). With the development of the internet, I started to follow GL through the reading of the recaps and watching video clips online from around 2005 until the end The City - I watched in full. Since at that time I knew nothing of how Loving ended, I had no idea who many of the characters were, but I got into it Sunset Beach - I watched in full. And loved almost all of it. Was very sad when they cancelled it. Passions - I watched first two years. I stopped watching during the Hell in the Closet storyline, just could not handle it anymore. It was ridiculous, it looked really bad and it dragged on forever. Never went back to Passions after that. All My Children - I watched 1994-1996 episodes when they aired here. I LOOOOVED it. Finally with the internet, I was able to read recaps and watch videos online, but I never really enjoyed the show as much as I did in those mid-90s. I loved Janet, Tad, Liza, Adam/Stuart, Maria/Edmund, Kendall (Sarah Michelle Gellar !!), the tornado storyline... The Young and the Restless - I started watching in 1999 and got really into it. Became my favorite show. Watched until LML years (so I believe 2006) and then I left. I came back with Maria Bell early time with Katherine's "death" and her meeting Murphy and watched a bit during that time, but then the whole Kevin the Chipmunk happened and so I quit again and never came back again. I still read news of what is happening, just a bit, although it sounds horrible for the most part. The downfall of Y&R hurts me the most, I think. Days of Our Lives - I started reading the recaps in March 2000. I was translating all the recaps into my language and sharing it with some friends. Got to watch DAYS later on when it also aired here. Finally I stopped watching it during Sheffer years. I came back to the show for the 50th anniversary (watched before Ben turned psycho and then the serial killer storyline and Bo's return). For whatever reason, I stopped watching again and never came back. I read the news and I am disgusted by the fact that serial killer Ben is now basically the protagonist. Ew! Home and Away - Australian soap, I only watched for a short time in the early 2000s, and while I liked I did not stick around General Hospital - I started watching just before the Metro Court Hostage Crisis, as it was heavily advertised back then as something unique. I really got into it, I loved all the young characters that they had back then (Maxie, Georgie, Cooper, Logan, Lulu) as well as Lucky/Liz, Nikolas, Tracy, Alexis. I never got into Sonny/Carly/Jason/Sam. Never understood the appeal. And eventually, destroying Liz/Lucky for Jason, killing off Georgie, and turning Cooper and Logan into serial killers really put me off and I stopped watching. Emmerdale - I started watching in 2009, around the same time as EastEnders and was really enjoying it. I remember Shadrach drowning in the lake, the Wylde family, Viv dying in the fire. I had a break then came back for Aaron/Robert storyline, Katie dying in 2015. I watched for a bit, but then quit. EastEnders - I loooved it. Watched during the Syed/Christian gay affair, I looved the Masoods (Zainab! :D), during the Janine/Ryan/Stacey storyline etc. I also loooved the Brannings (Max, Tanya, Lauren and Abby), I loved Roxy/Ronnie. I stopped watching around 2012/2013.. Then came back for EastEnders live show where they revealed who killed Lucy and that was fun! But I did not come back full time. I have never really watched ATWT, OLTL, B&B or AW.. I know that Edge of Night aired here as well, but I never watched it. ATWT also briefly aired here, but I don't remember ever watching it. I also never watched any of the German soaps, as I was never to find it with any English subtitles and my German was never that good to follow a show properly.
