9 November 22nd, 2012 Thanksgiving Holiday Soap Opera Viewing Guide! Classic Episodes, John Ingle’s Last Performance & Pre-Emptions!


Here is your handy soap opera viewing schedule over the holiday! On Thanksgiving Day, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless are all pre-empted.

However, General Hospital will be airing on encore episode from September 11, 2012 when at the hospital Monica, Patrick and Steve work hard to help patients all over Port Charles who are affected by Jerry’s deadly virus.  Edward Quartermaine arrives and we see him bestow life and gratitude upon Emma.  Meanwhile McBain, Dante and Lulu work together to defuse the bomb rigged to the anti-serum.   Sonny and Shawn help Alexis escape as Jax tries to take down his brother Jerry.  At the end of the episode, as a shoot-out occurs near the boat dock, Dante and Lulu’s kiss is interrupted by an explosion.   GH chose to re-air this episode in honor of John Ingle’s passing as this was the final heart-tugging performance of Ingle as Edward Q.   Then on Thanksgiving night make sure to head on over to SOAPnet, (if you get it in your cable outlet and area) and watch five classic episodes of GH’s Quartermaine Thanksgivings called “Quartermania”!

Next on Friday, November 23rd get ready for a blast from the past! A classic Days of Our Lives episode will be airing and it features Eileen Davidson (as Kristen and Susan), Drake Hogestyn (John), Deidre Hall (Marlena) and others.  The episode, originally aired on June 24, 1997, centered around John and Kristen’s wedding day; only Susan has taken the bride’s place. Meanwhile, Marlena and Kristen are unconscious in a secret room at the DiMera mansion, succumbing to fumes from a gas leak.  Meanwhile, The Young and the Restless will air an encore classic episode that features Victor and Nikki’s wedding from September5, 2002.  Both General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful will be pre-empted that day.

So soapers, as you prepare your Turkey with all the stuffings, then if you feel too stuffed to move the next day, which classic episodes are you most interest in watching? Let us know!

    I have already set my DVR for “Quartermania” on Soapnet! These episodes were the highlites of the year on GH and I miss the Quartermaine’s house filled with fighting family. Yesterday’s episode was amazing having AJ, Ned and Skye back. I was like old times!

    GH farewell episode for John ingle was beautifull, the last scene with Edward and Lila had me in tears.

    Just want to say I am very thankful for this wonderful website, I love it so much, thanks Michael. I am also very thankful for the shows we still have-I watch every single one every day. I will record the Quartermaines tonight to save forever.


    Jeffrey Anderson replied

    Same here,too.

    The episodes they chose were so-so; loved the one with Lucy Coe and Sigmund! One of those must have been a JFP show where she hired Jensen Buchanan, A Martinez and Linda Dano. Kinda strange!!! I must have stopped watching that year because I don’t remember any of them being on there. Loved seeing Stuart Damon and the classy Anna Lee though in those! Could have done without the more current stuff with Carly/Jax though …

    Am right now enjoying Y&R’s classic from 2002. WOW! You can see from this perspective how MAB ruined the show in the successive years. SORAS and other silly plot devices destroyed so many rich and wonderful characters. Thank goodness for the opportunity to look back.


    Bart replied

    What a difference ten years makes!! MAB really destroyed “Y & R” when you look back like this!! I have seen much improvement since her departure especially in terms of character-driven story, something the show has been lacking for many years!

    Enjoyed watching the episode on CBS-HD as well for once I/O on SoapNet and in standard def.
