  1. I cant wait to watch but they really should have done more classic and fewer contemporary episodes. Nothing with Mitch Laurance? Maria Roberts? Brad Vernon?

  2. I'm really looking forward to these episodes--yessss!

    Brian :-)

  3. THE golden era was from 79 to 89. Where is 1985-Niki, heaven, eterna?

  4. Having watched the marathon, I agree with all the comments. I was surprised that they didn't include the episode where Tina first tells Viki she was a Lord. Or Erika Slezak's first episodes as Viki not to mention the whole Ellen Holly storyline or Cathy Wolek's drug storyline. Eterna, Fraternity Row, Viki goes to heaven or any of the musical episodes. What are the chances of ABC or Prospect Park putting out a DVD collection?

  5. I agree this marathon missed the 80's gold. Also would have liked 90-91 Jake and Megan Era stuff as well.
