I searched the board to see if this topic had been done and didn't see anything, so I decided to start it. Soap operas have been parodied a lot in the past in sitcoms and movies, some parodies being better than others. These are ones that I like.
The Jeffersons: As Florence Turns was a Dallas parody episode and it was hilarious.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: As Will Turns was an episode where Will worked on a soap opera. LeAnn Hunley played a soap actress.
Mr. Mom: Michael Keaton's character has a soap opera dream. If I'm not mistaken, there is a brief glimpse of Victor and Nikki from the Young and the Restless on the television screen at one point.
