This is so exciting! I hope it sells well enough that we can get more of these out. I would die to see episodes of Harding Lemay's AW and the Dobsons' and Pam Long's GL. And, like Matt, I'd also love to see Somerset.

This is awesome! If I ever have an extra $20, I would definitely consider buying the DVD set. I hope it does do well, so others can be produced, particularly AW.

I hope we get to see DAYS do this one day.

I know nothing about ATWT, but I'm really excited about this. I hope this opens the door for more soaps to do the same.

I'm waiting for the website to launch before I get too excited about this, these sorts of online sales direct from the manufacturer are typically unfriendly for non-US buyers. Either ridiculous shipping charges, or crazy exchange rates. Hopefully it works out, I'm definitely interested.

Drew, I'll get you that answer tomorrow. They are working late to get the website up.

awesome :) I never watched ATWT, but it is a nice step towards others on DVD, hopefully! Maybe they'll even do "Ryan's Hope" and then my mother will watch soaps for the first time since it ended :)

& of course for me, I'd like DOOL & Passions. Then again, most of Passions is on youtube/other websites right now...

What wonderful news. While I can only recall watching ATWT on occasion with my grandmother when I was very young, I know the show has a large following who will be beating the doors down for this.

Personally, of the shows mentioned, I'm looking forward to AW

I really wanted to work that in but wasn't able to for this set. There is a brief flashback of it during one of the episodes, I think the 30th anniversary one.

Clips are up on the website now. I tried to choose a variety of 2-3 minute clips. For Tom and Margo's wedding, I chose a funny bit when everyone arrived versus the actual ceremony. Hope everyone enjoys. You can order by phone or online as of now.

Okay, I'm definitely buying this set now after seeing the episode listings! I'll seriously be in heaven if they release some really old DAYS or AMC episodes in a beautiful collection like this. If DAYS does indeed have their entire broadcast history saved, they should definitely do it. I would love to see storyline's such as Marlena's introduction, the Bill/Mickey/Laura triangle, the love story between Doug and Julie, and everything else from that time frame that seems to be absent from the online DVD sellers.

This is great. I hope the DVD sells really well so other soaps will be inclined to do this as well.

"I don't know why I don't have a story, either!"

I saw "BREAKING NEWS" and my heart skipped a beat -- when was the last time that breaking news was good in the soap world? This is fantastic.
