Not sure if Taylor's Arabian Night hold up in 2021 but I was sooooooo hoooked back then. 

Could you guys please recap what that story was about? And why would it be problematic today? I've never really delved into it. I just know Kabir Bedi was involved lol.

Thanks, since you two both agree on that I'll just rename them and move them into the 1995 folder.

Taylor was presumed dead in a plane crash and discovered by Prince Omar. Meanwhile Ridge married Brooke in that sandcastle ceremony. Omar eventually discovered who she was, but she had amnesia and was known as Princess Layla. Somehow Brooke and Ridge ended up on their honeymoon at Prince Omar's castle, by now Taylor remembered who she was, but was devastated seeing Ridge with Brooke. Omar would make her watch them in the bedroom via closed circuit video. Taylor was also wearing a burqa when she interacted with them, so they didn't recognize her. Taylor decided to just stay in Morocco and marry the Prince. It wouldn't work today because it had a lot of Middle Eastern stereotypes and Taylor was locked away a la Princess Jasmine in Aladdin. Eventually Taylor goes back to LA and reveals her identity (the CALA Classics episodes that were just uploaded).

 

What was more interesting was probably the backstage part. Hunter Tylo was co-starring in a miniseries called The Maharaja's daughter with Kabir Bedi, which is why she was temporarily written out, and why he guested on the show. I remember reading some gossip about it back then in the soap press. I didn't have the internet back in 1994 so I'm surprised it even made it into the magazines and I'm sure what made it in was the tip of the iceberg. Allegedly Hunter had an affair with Kabir, and almost got divorced. I also recall her saying something about being bitten by a snake and possessed (???) and then she became a born-again Christian after that.  She also apparently was super close with Kimberlin Brown (I think they both lived in Vegas and commuted together by plane?), but they had a falling out and it was really nasty and I vaguely remember one of them was accused of keying the other's car??? And then they stopped speaking. Kimberlin and her husband also testified on Michael Tylo's behalf during a custody dispute. Some people online later speculated it was a lesbian relationship gone bad, lol.  I hope I'm not the only one who remembers this stuff, haha.

 

And after all that, Hunter went on Melrose Place and the whole Aaron Spelling lawsuit happened... she certainly has been involved in her share of drama.

i remember that snake thing and stuff. Even my mother who ain't into soaps anymore remembered that. lmao That was wild stuff.

1994 is the year i really want to see again and especially coz of Taylor. That was when my mother got me hooked on that show when i was a little boy. I felt so sorry for Taylor and can't wait to see them episodes again

I also read this about an affair between Hunter and Kadir. I even think he admitted it in an interview. I know that Kimberlin and Hunter were very close but i have no idea why they stopped communicating.

What did you all think about the bold years 1994 and 1995? Do you think they were strong periods

At the time, and the way I remember them, they were my favorite years of the show! I loved Taylor's Morocco storyline, Thorne and Macy's singing career and Ivana's murder, and Sheila's increasingly desperate actions. I really hope to be able to watch these years again and see if they are as good as I remember. They were "high stakes" years with an unusual concentration of serious "life and death" situations. The earthquake (or was that late 1993?), Taylor "dying", Jack having a heart attack, the explosion in the lab, Sheila killing Jay Garvin, Sheila keeping James in a dungen and then trying to kill everyone including herself, Macy having cancer and covering it up to go on a concert tour, Anthony murdering Ivana and almost killing Sally and Macy while Thorne was wrongfully arrested and facing a potential death penalty, Jasmine falling down the elevator shaft at Spectra, and so on.

So unfortunately I am not home to currently check on it, but the omnibus (marathon) of this weeks B&B on Cala Classics is airing right now and it’s recording so fingers crossed I’ll have 10 episodes to post (8 given the two episodes I posted already) from ‘95 later tonight . If not I’ll be up and running for tomorrow and this weeks and we should have ‘95-on here soon. 
 

if this works than hopefully we will have ‘92-94 from Videoland next year and then 95-97 from Cala by the time the two intersect haha

I always thought it was short sighted to kill Ivana even though it was a good story with Macy fighting Anthony for the gun..and Sally being shot.  

Mid 90s is the last time the show had multiple stories going on.

@soapwikijohnthat is simply amazing! Fingers crossed it all goes well.

 

Anyway, remember a few days ago we were talking about how some of the official YouTube B&B videos are actually partial? By some lucky coincidence, YouTube user MocksFan actually just uploaded #5592 and 5593 (Nick and Bridget's third wedding). (or if it's not coincidence and MocksFan is reading here, thank you!). @BoldKara had found the missing parts in French but now we have them in English.

I went through my 2004-2009 folders and sorted all the "official" vids by length. These are the ones that are under 19 minutes. 
(note: Most full episodes are 21-22 minutes, but some are 30 minutes because they contain blank space for commercials. I'm assuming everything 20 minutes and up is full but doesn't have spaces, but it's possible those episodes are partial and contain space for commercials, if that makes sense - I don't have the time nor desire to open each file individually to check). Another strange thing is some episodes are longer than 30 minutes but have a lot of extra space at the end: episode 5560 is 54 minutes!

 

Partial episodes - if any of you have them in full please upload

5042 (this is actually some weird collection of clips and not really an episode?) 4/19/2007
5071 5/31/2007

5391 9/04/2008 (I uploaded)
5579 6/05/2009
5580 6/08/2009
5581 6/09/2009
5585 6/15/2009
5590 6/22/2009
5591 6/23/2009 (have second half in French)
5592  (will upload Mocksfan version)
5593 (will upload Mocksfan version)
5594 6/26/2009
5595 6/29/2009 (I uploaded

5042 has been put in the Vault.   Strange the official B&B YouTube channel put the edited one there which is a combination of 5041 and 5042...possibly due to the Virginia Tech shooting that happened at the time of airing?

I actually agree 1999-2002 was a good era but there was a lower attention span.
