EXCLUSIVE: SoapClassics Releases Carly & Jack "CarJack" AS THE WORLD TURNS DVD!

It's been the conventional wisdom for decades: daytime soap fans are intensely loyal. When We Love Soaps first began working with SoapClassics as they started re-releasing episodes of canceled daytime TV favorites, we were definitely counting on that loyalty--but so far, the enthusiasm of the soap fan community has exceeded even our expectations.

You'll remember that last fall, the SoapClassics partnership let us make a promise that helped us usher in 2012 as The Year of The Soap: as long as the fans keep up their amazing support, we'll keep the classic episodes coming.

So, after "AS THE WORLD TURNS Classics" received fantastic reception, we got "GUIDING LIGHT Classics" ready to release ahead of schedule--and even snuck in "Christmas in Oakdale" as a bonus for fans.

We got "The Reva Shayne Collection" ready for release even faster than we had planned, and now, another SoapClassics DVD collection, curated once again by We Love Soaps' Roger Newcomb, is ready to be shared and enjoyed: a 10-episode "CarJack Collection" of AS THE TURNS episodes, featuring the love story of Carly Tenney and Jack Snyder.

You know the drill!  Visit SoapClassics.com to order--you can catch the first glimpse of the episode list below.  Most of all, be sure to keep on giving us your feedback and support!  What do you think of the choices for this collection?  And what would you like see next?  Please tell us in the Comments section, below.

  1. Just got it in my email and on website to order it! I loving this and signed up for the NL episodes...I'm in heaven...ATWT was pretty strong...2005 Hogan was on top of his game...another story now. Hogan likes "crazy" women...most female characters are board-line Babara, Emily, Will, Julia etc. but they were nothing like Y&R. I been watching those episodes more then the current ones on today! Roger a big thank you! At least I have one soap back now Guiding Light I'm waiting patiently.

  2. I'm noticing a trend..January, they released Classic GL, FEB..classic Reva, March...the new ATWT...I think they are doing monthly specials...Just waiting for Tony and Annabelle on GL...:) Thanks so much to soap classics!

  3. Next up should be a Manny set or a Bauer BBQ set. Although I would love Tony and Annabelle too. Actually I'm so grateful that we have any. I never thought we'd get this much too soon.

  4. I am so excited about this! Yep I ordered mine. CarJackers are in heaven today with some so important moments in CarJack history now on DVD! Thanks to all who made this happen.

    Plus all the great CarJack scenes there is so much included in the episodes that is really, really good! I can't wait to see the whole episodes!

  5. I been thinking on couples...ATWT there should be a James\Barbara from the start in 1980, Tom\Margo, Lily\Holden, Will\Gwen, John\Lucinda as for GL...Tony & Annabelle, David\Kat, Gilly\Hamp, Maureen\Ed, Tammy\Jonathan. Do a dvd of wicked triangle or quads. Both soaps had some outstanding twisted triangles...YUM...

  6. I'm not a fan of a lot of those couples. I would want Quint/Nola, Phillip/Beth, Alan/Hope from GL. On ATWT the original Tom/Margo, Lisa/Grant, Lily/Holden, Barbara/Gunnar.

  7. I'm totally loving these terrific ATWT & GL DVD videos--Yay!

    Brian :-)

  8. Hoping for an Otalia dvd next. Loving these dvds. Thanks for all of the hard work! :)

  9. I love, love, LOVE this CARJACK release!!! But still...more than anything I want to see episodes from as far back as they have online to stream. I'll pay for it - I swear!!! I want to see ATWT from as far back as I can one episode at a time. I started watching in Feb of 2000 so I would love to see continuing storylines with these characters that I love. That having been said....I'm thankful for anything they put out!

  10. I'd love a Will and Gwen DVD. Or one with Dusty and Paul fighting over Rose, ending with her wedding day. But I would buy any ATWT DVDs! I still miss this show, especially around the holidays. I still think about the Hubbard squash every Thanksgiving!

  11. I've got a lot of affection for a number of ATWT characters, especially Barbara, Lily/Holden, Tom/Margo, Lucinda, Lisa, Bob/Kim, Luke/Noah/Reid, Katie. Would love collections for these characters, especially Barbara. Love from the UK!!
