wow, its so strange how Roman and Marlena are way ahead of everyone else (I mean I did expect them to be the top two but didn't expect them to be about 40 episodes ahead of number 3) and that most characters seem to have been on only 2 - 3 times a week.

Was there a big turnover in cast this year or something?

Wasn't 1982 another year where lots of people were being written out, both veterans and new characters who had not been popular with fans? Or was that only 1981?

Was 1982 the year of the serial killer story?

*. UNKNOWN (Jonah Carver) 1

Interesting... was Jonah Carver a baby then? A kid brother of Abe? I would've figured Jonah was brought on in 1993 as some never-before-mentioned younger brother of Abe. Any knowledge as to the backstory of this?

Yes, I was shocked to see Jonah's name in the script. He is listed as a principal, not a U/5, so it would seem he was a young child. I never knew he appeared before Bumper Robinson played him from 1987-1988 (he was a friend of Carrie's back then). And then Thyme Lewis played him in the mid-90s. I just looked up the weekly summaries I have, and he is listed there, I had never noticed before. The one sentence says: "Abe improved after a visit from his little brother, Jonah." (Abe had been shot multiple times the previous week while saving David from Stuart's hitmen).

I'd love to know what that SL was about :P Anyone know?

Was a full decade before JER joined.

The robot was invented by Chris Kositchek to help with learning disabled children at University Hospital. Eugene then got involved in the storyline and did some comedic stuff with the robot. They had a "name the robot" contest that Trista Evans won. She named it Awesome. Alex Marshall also used the robot to try and kill Alice, but it accidentally killed Neil's secretary, Gretchen.

From a newspaper article I found, it stated that the robot was even a member of SAG, the acting union. So that's the first, and only, non-human I've heard of as being in SAG! SICO's picture is available here: http://www.jason47.com/days/1982episodes.html

Thanks, SouthofSoap, it's fun chronicling the history and learning new things about my favorite show in the process. I'll be wrapping up the 1980's over the next few months, so by the end of this year, we'll have a full 30 years of info available on "Days", all the contract changes, cast biographies, birthdays, episode rankings, etc... from 1980-2009! And for December, the full 30-year cumulative episode rankings from January 1, 1980-December 31, 2009.

Gray Bunny: I just looked through the early 1982 Soap Digests and found this passage about Jonah's appearance, so the mystery has been solved!

Abe regains consciousness and finds Valerie and his six-year-old brother, Jonah, by his bedside. Jonah explains that their sister, Karen, is doing all the cooking because Mrs. Carver is ill. When Abe remarks that Karen isn’t a very good chef, Valerie offers to cook for the Carver family.

    • Oh, how I laughed at that.   You're not. Some people have been saying the same. And Twitter definitely has been arguing that very point along with the potential return of Mary to SLC given she skipped the second season reunion. It sets a standard and people are going to wonder...especially the housewives themselves.   Perhaps he will ask on that one on one. Please register in order to view this content
    • We can also add Amelia Heinle (Victoria, Y&R; Steffi, Loving/The City), who acted with Debbi and Darnell on both soaps. Billy Miller/Jeff Branson/Elizabeth Hendrickson/Eden Riegel (Richie/Jonathan/Maggie/Bianca, AMC; Billy/Ronan/Chloe/Heather, Y&R) You can swap out Eden for Melissa Claire Egan (Annie, AMC; Chelsea, Y&R). They almost overlapped as well.
    • A couple of thoughts on today's episode: 1. The whole BLQ scene seemed like a rerun of Friday's episode.  I know soaps like to repeat scenes so that viewers can keep up with the story, but I actually had to check the date to see if I wasn't watching the prior show. 2.  Liz exiting the scene with Finn to go to the wedding rehearsal was amusing.  First because it was like she was saying 'I am going to turn myself into the police, but first I must go to this rehearsal for a wedding that I'm not going to be able to attend if I'm arrested.'  And second, why are they still having the rehearsal an hour after Britt's memorial service?  Talk about day-to-night, how does one figure out what to wear for a day when they're going from work to a funeral to a wedding rehearsal? 3.  Laura still blames herself for not being around to raise to Nikolas?   He's been in Port Charles since 1996, 27 years, more than half his life.  She's had plenty of time to be a good influence since then...

    • I cannot remember who began to HW when Pete left. Have to look it up. Maybe Tom King. But, I just figure that with Pete leaving the first sign of slippage in the ratings they would have predictably panicked. And, panic tends to bring CHANGE! Let me go look that up.  AW Mon., Mar. 5, 1979 2:30-4 1 hr to 90 min. When Lemay could not stand writing the 90 min. show is when he quit AW. It was Fred Silverman's idea & Paul Rauch jumped on it agreeing with Silverman. He & Pete fought, bitterly. AT first Pete stayed even though he was against it, but then he became exhausted & quit & wrote his scathing book.  AW Mon., Aug. 4, 1980 2-3 bk to 1 hr. Yes, Tom King & then Soderburg joined him as co-HW.
