  • I can’t wait to see these epsiodes.

  • I would have included kristina and her getting beaten by keiffer and when sonny told her about his mom but I cant wait to watch this marathon

  • Atropos22

    These sound great! and aww, Jason and Elizabeth. I loved them. I’m still hoping Jason will return (somehow) and he and Elizabeth will end up together.

    • Emma

      Lucky and Liz belong together.They are soulmates and it’s great they have no much in the marathon.

  • Pattyan

    FABULOUS line-up!! Can’t they make a DVD??? I’m going to be glued to the TV all weekend!!!

  • Lisa

    Happy to see some Jason and Sam stuff. But I’m really excited about the 80s stuff. Too much Luke and Laura? I wish they selected a broader variety.

  • Apuufs

    SOO SOOO SOO SOOO excited about the best triangle ever told in soap history…Sonny/Brenda/Jax

  • BornSoapStar

    Love the photo of Jason and Elizabeth in the elevator…one of my favorite episodes of all time was when Jason found out the baby Elizabeth was carrying was his! Love the episode when Elizabeth discovers Carly being held hostage in the panic room too!

  • I’m really excited about the older (re anything older than 2000) episodes. I can’t wait to see the first episode of Friday night!

    It is good to know that while I’m at my cousin’s house for Easter I don’t have to worry about missing anything good on the GH marathon–living through the Guza years was bad enough once; I’m not about to do it again.

  • I wish ABC would release first 50 episode on DVD format with background scenery. It would be interested to learn how GH changed over 50 year.

  • jonboy

    Would rather see more 60s & 70s stuff. 2000+, who cares?

  • I’ll admit that my favorites are from the last 3 years. My first memory is that of Sonny insulting Claudia Zacchara at the Metro Court party in ’09. My mind kindof sticks to atleast 10 special scenes or storylines. But I am equally pleased with being able to see the foundation for one of the 3 soap operas that I’ve come to know and respect. And, General Hospital, here’s to the next 50 years!

  • Memorable; definatly

  • If u r a true die heart G H fan from the beginning; u wont miss an episode; sit back; relax and let the memories take u back to the good ol days of soaps the way they used to be it wil be bittersweet for us all

  • Wow Soapnet is still on the air as it was removed from Comcast Cable almost a year ago now I am getting upset at Comcast Cable.I hope all of you people will enjoy Soapnet while it last,

  • I am so happy that I still have SoapNet on Dishwork. They rock.

  • I love the Marathon I watched the wedding last night. I watched all the episodes last night. I had to go to work today. I miss all of today’s shows which had a lot of Luke and Laura. I really enjoyed watching them they have and always will be my favorites.
