Free episode available to view too:http://www.soapclassics.com/index.php/free-online-episode.html

August 26, 1983 I wanted this one on the DVD but it had music issues and no time to fix so you can watch it for free, and the next episode (the aftermath) is on the DVD. Both amazing episodes.

Very excited about this release. Strangely enough, I was just wondering earlier today when we'd learn more about the GL DVDs.

I was just about to post that Soap Classics updated their website with the new section. LOL. Will we be able to purchase on Amazon again?

Just watched the free episode. Thanks Roger! I never paid attention to GL until about 2004, so it was weird seeing Billy, Josh, Phillip, etc. looking so young. It was also weird to see someone other than Ron Raines playing Alan.

Chris Bernau was a really special actor. Ron Raines did a great job, but there was "something" that Bernau had that made him so unique as Alan. He died way too young.

Damn... I haven't posted on here in awhile.

The set looks pretty good, in terms of episode selection. It must have been ridiculously hard to pick 20 episodes, keeping in mind music rights and other logistical issues. I would have LOVED to have seen one of the Cliff House episodes, but even that one, I believe, has music issues depending on which episode picked. I'm not going to lie... Not *too* thrilled there's a 2009 episode mixed in. I'd rather leave Peapack as a rather shitty forgotten dream.

Hopefully we can get a Volume 2 for more episodes.


By the way... Really small typo correction: The Maureen episode from Disc 2 is from 1993.

I've noticed a few typos on the website (shouldn't be on the actual DVD). I'm waiting till the dust clear to tell them in case they are still updating.

There definitely will be more as long as these sets keep selling.

Great news! I hope they can also somehow acquire the rights to the NBC/ABC/CBS soaps (Not sure how that would work... I think the Networks would have to give permission). It would be a great treat for fans of the recently cancelled shows to see some old episodes.

There's enough work for years here just encoding these episodes. Would be nice though. Hopefully ABC or Sony or any other production companies will release more shows on DVD.

My DVDs arrived yesterday. Been mostly skipping around, but there is one scene that I keep rewinding. I love the 1988 episode. It must have been Maureen Garrett's second or third day back and she has a great scene with Elizabeth Dennehey's Blake, talking about not liking being back because of the "ghosts." Sigh... If they only knew what was about to happen...

I'm a little concerned with the covering up of the music on this episode, mostly, that you can still mostly hear it if you listen closely enough. I really hope it's enough to avoid copyright infringment suits because I want more of these collections.

I'm watching the Nola reveal episode from 1981(?) and it's just fantastic. God, Nola was a magnificent character, probably my favorite on GL. The scene in the boarding house kitchen!

(Tony Reardon, on the other hand, is annoying as hell.)

Nola was my favorite GL character and one of my all-time favorite soap characters. I was totally sympathetic to Nola in those scenes (when I first watched and now) even though she was the wrongdoer. Lisa was able to make you understand Nola's motivations and root for her. It's a shame what was done to the character in the 90s, with her ridiculous obsession with Buzz Cooper, who would never have been the type of man she would be attracted to.

Yes, Nola is quickly becoming one of my favorite soap characters in general as well as GL characters.

OT but I love your avi! Joel was always one of my favorites, I followed him from Dark Shadows to all of his other soaps.

Thanks! I loved him on Dark Shadows and what I saw of him on the AOL episodes of The Edge of Night. Plus, he was gorgeous. Such a shame he died at a relatively early age.

And you've got a great avatar, yourself -- that's a fabulous picture of Susan!

The last ten episodes of both "As the World Turns" and "Guiding Light" have been released on DVD (Farewell to Oakdale and Farewell to Springfield). Roger, you guys have been doing a phenomenal job on getting these sets out there. I feel like a new one has just been released every time I check my email. Lol. http://www.soapclassics.com/
