 Whatever anyone can offer is always appreciated even if it's only one episode. It helps us get that little bit closer to the complete set.

Welcome to all the new members here! @boldbeautifulau , @Sasha66 , @Finrod , @Videnbas , @paradisin and others.

I also had A LOT of issues to register here, I'm glad to see I'm not alone lol. I tried multiple times with at least 3 different emails but nothing worked.  I wanted to participate in this thread and contribue to the vault for so long... I emailed Errol and Toups and they approved me immediately.

So, I completed the few episodes I couldn't add on August 20-25 (#1451, #1451, October 2002... all episodes added in late August)... the vault was full so I couldn't finish (thank you chickenugets for clearing this). I also added #4075-4124 in German (from @rsclassicfanforever Youtube private playlist... THANK YOU)... I think most between #4075 and #4113 weren't in the vault English.  Last time I checked, there were still a lot of holes between #4132 and #4203 but I'm sure we'll have them some day.

I also added 4 new episodes in Italian from April 1993. Some interesting Sheila/Lauren drama and a special ep with Karen and Brooke. Feel free to delete once/if we have the English version.

Yeah, I was also the one who added #5455 in French at the time..... Thanks@BoldRestless  for the english version... and Christmas 2004 and the other episodes you added.). And 2 episodes around #5590 in Spanish. I just noticed #5593-95 and #5597-5598 are incomplete, by the way. Not sure why. I think I have nothing left now, ... uploaded everything I had on my old computer.

 

10000 thanks to the Angel with this new playlist and the people who added these new episodes from this playlist.

 

OT: Sheila's return is a bit disappoiting so far. Falling flat. I had higher expectations... hopefully it'll improve.

You're welcome and thanks for the Italian episodes! Love them.

 

This is good that you bring this up, I never realized those episodes from the official YT were incomplete. That's so weird. Some of those videos might be on that big playlist. Here it is again: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBf2sqMgWduMSUUEhqZtzK4kCEOXZNAP5 

 

 

I see #5592 is also incomplete... ugh. But that one doesn't seem to be on the playlist.

I found #5593 (June 25, 2009) #5595 (June 29) #5597 (July 1) #5598 (July 2) on there and will download them. 
 

The quality is not nearly as good but at least they are complete). I might have missed some others. I encourage others to take a better look. If someone could check to see what videos are not complete that would be a huge job but worthwhile. I'm not optimistic this channel will remain online forever so it would be good to get anything we need now.  It would be helpful if anyone could either upload them to the vault or at least cross-reference the episode numbers/dates and post the direct link to the YT videos here, since the playlist is so hard to search.

Episodes 5127 and 5128 are also missing from the official YouTube channel. These being the episodes where Andy assaults Brooke. I often wonder does the official YT channel deliberately skip episodes because of sensitive content? If that is indeed the case, the entire scene is replayed during a flashback in episode 5174. Makes no sense really.

Good find! And I noticed that French page has 5591 so I checked the English version and that is also partial. WTF! Why would the B&B channel name them "Official Full Episodes" if they are clips ranging from 6-10 minutes? I knew there were episodes missing but I thought at least what was there was complete... but at least we have the missing pieces in French (didn't see 5591 on the English playlist either).

Curious on you all’s Thoughts on the Brooke and Deacon story? Do you feel it did more harm than good or Vice versa?

It was great. Brooke's character was already too fargone after she slept with Thorne. It made sense to go to the next level by having her screw Deacon. There were was no dignity to lose. Classic B&B soapy stuff.

I agree. Brooke's character crossed a line when she went for Thorne. Until that point, you could (possibly) justify her actions by her being in love with Ridge (and temporarily rebounding to Eric and other men). Her consistency in her romantic love for Ridge over the years was the thing that kept the character together and made her human. It was possible (at least for me) to view her in a positive light.

But when she went after Thorne - the third Forrester man - so aggressively, and pretty much out of the blue, that really signaled a shift in her character (or maybe exposed certain traits of her character that had been less obvious, and possible to overlook, until that point). During that storyline, it became clear that her idea of "love" was really an obsession, and that it was completely selfish in nature. Brooke had held grudges and had many confrontations with her rivals in the past, but she was usually the underdog and I never before saw the kind of intentional and unwarranted cruelty she showed with Macy. In every other rivalry up until that point, it was at least a possible interpretation to see Brooke as the injured party (depending on your perspective). But with Macy (and in subsequent rivalries with Bridget and Katie), that interpretation was no longer possible - Brooke had clearly become the aggressor, hurting other women without provocation and without remorse.

Found two episodes on YouTube from a 1995 Network TEN Australia broadcast. 

Episode 1995 - Lauren tells Eric about Sheila’s past. 

Episode 1997 - Sheila & Lauren’s infamous Jacuzzi fight.
This is the best quality I have seen of this fight anywhere.

To piggy back off this, there was an another clip of this scene uploaded years ago on YouTube that I can't seem to find anymore - but during the jacuzzi fight, there was an alternate cut that showed Lauren underwater going directly to breathe air from the jets while Sheila was trying to drown her. Would that cut have been shown on Episode 1998 or was it only available in select countries?
