In our interview with Soap Classics President Mark Yates back in October, he revealed that a GUIDING LIGHT DVD would be release in the first quarter of 2012. We can now confirm that release is happening, and in mid-January!
The "Classics" DVD will follow a similar format as the AS THE WORLD TURNS Classics DVD (on sale now) with four discs with five episodes each.
We can't spoil all the episodes on the disc just yet but fans of Santo Domingo, the Bauer family, personality disorders, fire trucks, the magic of Nick, ex-husbands, singing med students, drunken stepfathers and Irna Phillips will be happy. Seriously, we tried to include as many different characters as possible on the set which covers almost a 30 year span.
We reveal a couple of our favorite episodes on the DVD below:
* Quint and Nola's wedding. How could Nola's entire family leave her at home with no ride to the church on her wedding day? Never fear, the ingenious Nola found a ride thanks to the Springfield Fire Department. And the Four Musketeers had just finished their prom and were gearing up for a hot summer.
* Roger Thorpe's "death" in Santo Domingo. As Bert Bauer prays to God to keep her sons, Ed and Mike, safe from harm, Roger is facing his last hours on earth. Or so we would think at the time. Alan and Hope were a month from their wedding day. Any episode with Charita Bauer, Barbara Berjer, Maureen Garrett, Christopher Bernau, Michael Zaslow, Don Stewart and Mart Hulswit is heaven to me.
And remember, 2012 will be "The Year of the Soap."
