You bitches are gonna sit and listen about why Passions is one of the most underrated soaps of all time! 

But, the soaps I’ve watched are Hollyoaks, All My Children, Neighbours, Models Inc, Passions, Melrose Place, BH90210 (I feel this is a lite soap opera and it didn’t get sudsy until its later years), Dynasty and General Hospital.

Daytime:

  • All My Children
  • As the World Turns
  • Days of Our Lives
  • General Hospital
  • The Bold and the Beautiful
  • The Young and the Restless

I've also caught Santa Barbara and Sunset Beach when they were on YouTube, and both were incredible underrated, esp. the latter, which was Aaron Spelling's entrance in the daytime soap world, and yet, it felt like a primetime soap!

I've also begun watching Hollyoaks on Hulu in the last month, and fuck me, it's incredible!

I’ve wanted to watch both, but I never got around to it. I’ve heard crazy things about Sunset Beach.

Sunset Beach was from Aaron Spelling and co., so it had that primetime feeling in a daytime format, esp. in its earliest episodes. By the middle of its first year on-air, they made it a bit more of a daytime feeling, but I really liked it. It was outside with limited studio sets, which was nice, especially for a daytime soap. Ultimately, I do feel like it was on the wrong network for its platform.

Kendall Hart

Only watched it with the last one and she was all over the place especially towards the end and didn't she have like a heart defect? I loved the best friend Greenlee

This has Eddie Cibrian in it, right? Anyway, thanks for the link! :) 

For the three of us in here thus far, have you hunties ever heard of Passions? This show was FUCKING NUTS. It started off very slow (something it was guilty of at times) but went balls to the walls. They had demons, witches, hell in closets/characters going to hell, zombies, curses, a talking doll, and that was just the tip of the ice berg. It was a very supernatural soap, but it was SO GOOD. They ripped off a few movies too (like Carrie).

Greenlee was a fave because of her feud with Bianca. I HATED Bianca. God, she was easily one of the worst characters ever.

YAS! YOU BETTER STAN MS. LAURA WRIGHT!!! She's a fantastic actress. I grew up with her as Cassie on Guiding Light. Now, both Laura and Tamara Braun (ex-Carly) on are GH!

Yes. Eddie Cibrian got his start on Sunset Beach when he was cast as Cole 2.0!

As for Passions, I never did watch.

I only liked Bianca once they recast the role from Eden Riegel to Christina Bennett Lind; by that point, the character became likable!

Ugh, you should watch it! The entire series is on YouTube. It’s SO trashy. One of the characters is written as a friend of Princess Diana who gets a vision from her. It’s so fucking batshit. I re-watched an episode recently where a portal to hell is opened in a closet and one of the central families on the show has their house being sucked into hell. UGH SO GOOD.

I never liked ha! She was SO SO SO whiny. I’m glad OG Kendall terrorised her to hell and back.

I hated the character until they recast her. Her pairing with Marissa? With pitted her against JR? Fantastic!

:laughcry: I loved Eden she was so sweet (sometimes) and I loved her wedding!

Fun Fact: My momma named me after that character so that may be why I like her.

What about Bold & Beautiful?!

What about Y&R? Any Cane & Lily lovers? Do we wish that they would let Drucilla come back from the grave? Do we like the (not so) new Billy?
