On Friday, I got my copy of the 20 episode set of As the World Turns. Has anyone else ordered it? I'm blogging about it just cause I find it to be fun. :)

Haven't ordered yet, but I probably will at some point...

Right now the only places you can buy it are soapclassics.com or amazon.com (originally it was only available at Soap Classics).

Here is my summary of the second disk...third disk write up should be available later this week.

I just finished the 4 disk series. I loved every minute of every episode. It was like watching old home movies, seeing family members, and reliving happier times.

I've never known exactly what was airing when I started watching. I know that I never saw Peter Simon as Ian, and obviously never saw the heart attack story, etc. I have a vague recollection of Dan/Ellen's re-marriage, although it seemed vaguely familiar. It was interesting to see actors playing roles later recast by people I recall.

I've always had a minority opinion with regards to Meg Ryan. While she was adorable, there was something quirky and messy about her. It's interesting how those qualities were apparent in her early portrayal of Betsy. I liked Lindsay Frost in the role - she had a different take on the character, seemed more poised and less silly. Loved seeing Marisa Tomei again - I recall her role.

I loved seeing the evolution of wardrobe (those shoulder pads!), hairstyles, sets, props, etc. It was easy to see where money was spent when available, and what was cut when not.

I hope there is a thirst for seeing DVDs and that SoapClassics continues to package them. I can't wait for GL's to come out.

Grr. This is upsetting news.

An Urgent Message from SoapClassics

Because our distribution license for As the World Turns and Guiding Light expires soon, these DVDs will no longer be available once our current stock runs out.

If you were planning to fill out your collection, or to give some of our DVDs for Christmas, please act quickly. Some of our collection is already gone, but many of our best titles are still available.

We are also offering, as a Christmas special, a beautiful boxed set of our best ATWT titles. This is the perfect Christmas gift for any ATWT fan (including yourself!), and will certainly become a rare collector's item. We have only a limited number of these.

Sincerely,
Soap Classics
