Guys, are they airing 2 episodes on rtl, which the angels are uploading in the vault. So that means in 1 year we will have full 1992,1993... The Sheila and Belief era... oh my.....

Do we know how far they are planning to go? Just through 1993 or will they catch up to current episodes?

I don’t think there is an official announcement. We should count our blessings: originally it was supposed to be the very first 50 (?) episodes, then season. And they just haven’t stopped due to popular demand. rTL/Videoland is still Licensing B&B, so

maybe they will show the reruns indefinitely.

I hope they keep going. I only started watching B&B in 2011 when Bill was ending his first affair with Steffy, so I missed out on a lot. I’m loving the classic episodes so far. I thought the show was fun today, but I really had no idea what I was missing.

Nice, I’m always thrilled when someone new starts enjoying the show. Think this has gotten rare and the key issue for US soaps in recent years. They lack the prominence to find a broader „new“ audience (needless to say some might argue this is rightfully so because the writing often fails to deliver these days). I’d still say that B&B is somewhat true to its core (the show started to blossom and come into its own IMO from 1990-1992) and therefore enjoyable although I cannot deny my issues with today’s wiring and production values to make me prefer previous periods. But hey, Kimberli  Brown was brought. So: Sheila forever - and I’m done for the ride!

OMG how awesome was it seeing her comes out of the shadows today!? Incredible. I clapped so hard. I knew it was coming but I cheered and clapped!

I think part of the problem is that people just aren’t interested in scrambling to catch up on a show with 30+ years of history, especially not now when today’s tech has left everyone with such short attention spans. I knew about B&B and had even seen an episode or two but didn’t commit to watching full time for years for that very reason. It wasn’t that the stories weren’t interesting, it was just so much easier to find something else to watch on Netflix I could easily enjoy from the first season without all the hassle of trying to figure out who was who and who had already done what.

Making the classic reruns available on YouTube is a smart move I think. New viewers will probably be a lot more willing to give the show a chance now - if they’re smart about advertising it. I really don’t know why it wasn’t done sooner.

I hope it goes on until (at least) late 1995! Then we still have almost (99%) everything in German for 1996-1999 (still 7 missing episodes in 1999) in case they stop it. 2005-2020 are now complete and 2000-2004 are already well filled in English or German, despite a few gaps and not so good quality (but I can live with that ) So, 1992-1995 in English would be awesome, but yeah I count my blessings. I'd have been happy with 10% of what we have in the vault.

I could never thank you guys enough for everything you're doing. Special thanks to @rsclassicfanforever for the 1990s episodes and @BoldRestless and [email protected] for the German missing episodes from 2005-2009.

I'm also very pleased to see SHEILA is back. I just hope they don't humiliate her character like they did in 2017. They need to pick a side with her. Either they redeem her, make her a nice, transformed person who learnt from her mistakes, she surprises everyone and comes on top. Or they make her the full-blown supervillain she used to be.... She wreacks havoc and terrorizes everyone like she did during her run in 2002-2003. If she can make Steffy's life a nightmare and snatch Eric away from Quinn in the process, I won't complain, LOL. Just don't make her a cartoonish, brainless character who pretends "she has changed" like they did 4 years ago. There are already enough hypocrites on this show. Besides I find the Dr. Finnegan dull as hell until now, Sheila will definitely make him and the story more interesting. Also they'll have to respect Sheila's history and not rewrite everything. Explain the circumstances/timing of his birth, and more flashbacks and hints of her reigns of terror and her times with Eric. They can do better than 2017. Anyway I'm happy they brought her back but I'll restrain my expectations for now. I'm happy to see so many Sheila fans in this discussion. We should all like Sheila OR love to hate her. People who don't care (or are totally opposed to her comeback), aren't true B&B fans, IMO.
