    The More Drama There Is The Better The Soap

    I was brought up on the soaps so it was inevitable that I'd still be watching them once I'd left home and had a family of my own. What I enjoy most with the soaps is when they create a really gripping storyline that you don't know the outcome to. A classic example for me is when...

    Absolutely Not

    Some of the worst shows on TV. The worst acting. The worst plotlines. It's no wonder so many people end up on chat shows like Springer with their own personal melodramas. They've got their ideas off these!

    My Story

    I am addicted to soap operas purely because they are a fun, mindless escape.  Currently, I only watch one soap: One Life to Live.  I do have to watch it everyday or I get antsy.

    I Love As the World Turns :)

    I always swore I'd never get addicted to a soap opera but I seemed to have become a major fan of As The World Turns. I can't help it. It's not as far fetched as the rest of them out there I have seen. I used to watch Guiding Light some too but the writing has gotten a little bad...

    On Young and Restless,

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who is hoping and praying that Billy Boy Abbott dies! The man is a complete and total loser and a miserable failure. He hates everybody in the Newman family, so how can he love Victoria? And what does she see in his sorry butt? That incompetent...

    Starting To Join The Club Now

    I used to make fun of my mother and aunts for always watching the soaps. Left the TV on one day while doing housework and found myself settling into the sofa and just watching DAYS & Y&R. I never realized how...captivating...womens programming was? Seems like the more you watch...

    I still love soap operas.

    One Life to Live was my absolute favourite and I miss it dearly. I also liked All My Children but not nearly as much. I was heartbroken when they were cancelled and now I'm just as invested in General Hospital as I was OLTL. I only ever watched it a few times before but now I...
