That's a good sign that they are picking bigger, better episodes. I want some old school Duke and Anna too. I'm sure they will try to use more of the current cast. Luckily there's some many classic characters back so the episode selection should have a pretty wide variety. I'm just excited the first episode we hear about is in the 80s. Choosing 50 episodes I'm sure we are going to get some gems. I just hope they don't go 2000s heavy like all of the soapnet countdowns usually do. I guess its a money thing, but time to get real for this occasion.

IA hope theres not lots of 2000-and after eps i also think there should be eps that were life changing or some of the most popular like BJ's death I'd like some from 1970 also

I really hope that the first 24 hours are 1963-1988, although I'm guessing most of the 1960's shows are unavailable as is the case with One Life to Live. Would also be a treat if they showed everything in chronological order.

It would be a little jarring (and cruel) to watch an episode where Natalia Livingston's Emily is murdered (2007) and then the show plays a 1995 episode where Amber Tamblyn's Emily is adopted by Alan and Monica after her mother succumbs to cancer.

Hopefully, SOAPNet will do their homework and turn this one out!

I would be SHOCKED if they played the shows in chronological order. Yes, that would be the smart and seemingly only way to do it, but SoapNet doesn't really get anything right. Yeah I would say the 60s tapes are probably destroyed, at least most of them. I just hope we don't get like 30 episodes in a row from 2004.

I really hope they show Sean and Tiffany's wedding. It was hilarious. So was Lucy and Alan's.

I have no doubt they will show BJ's death and Maxie's heart transplant, another favorite story of mine.

I can't wait!! I can think of so many I want to see!!

I wonder how much pre-80s material is available? GH was one of the first soaps I remember watching in the late 60s and early 70s. It was the only non-NBC soap my mother ever watched. I remember the days when Jessie Brewer was the heroine who was put through the wringer by her husband (sometimes ex), Phil. I also remember Peggy McCay playing alcoholic Iris Fairchild, Lee Baldwin's secretary, with whom he was having an affair.

I've seen some people state that all of GH is available, in a vault somewhere.

I would be surprised & impressed if all of GH before 1978 was available since it was the standard practice at the time to wipe & record over all of the episodes. That's why so little pre-78/79 P&G soaps are available. Ditto OLTL. I think I heard once that Agnes Nixon actually SAVED all of AMC, but all of the master tapes were lost in a warehouse fire in the late 1970s. Part of her agreement to expand AMC to an hour was that ABC started keeping all the episodes (at least I *think* that's how the story goes). I've only seen VERY little pre-78 GH. I've got the 1st episode and a small handful of 60s episodes in my collection (Phil was SUCH a douche) and there are only a couple of earlier episodes on youtube. I think the only soaps that exist (pre-80) that actually have all their episodes are Ryan's Hope, Days, Y&R, and Dark Shadows.

I've gotten a hold of the full schedule from SoapNet's press department. Putting it in spoiler tags so that it doesn't take up so much room, and so if anybody wants to be surprised they still can.
