  1. The confrontations between Brooke and the Forresters during the BeLief story (still the best B&B story ever) are some of my favorites. The fact that Brooke came out on top is just icing on the cake....
  2. B&B: Brooke's affair with Deacon. Love her or hate her, Brooke has been an integral part of B&B since the start, and her sordid affair with Deacon was out of character for her and damaged her character in a way that she's never really recovered from. And as if he realized the damage he had done to the character of Brooke, Brad Bell then proceeded to do the same to other characters, Taylor and Stephanie for example. (I'm probably giving him too much credit here, and most likely he just sucks as a writer, but you never know.... ) Now all the characters are ruined beyond repair and B&B is nothing more than an empty shell. And when you consider that the Brooke/Deacon affair also produced Hope it's even more obvious how damaging that story was......
  3. With Y&R sinking like a stone and B&B finally reaching a climax to the Beth/Phoebe-story could B&B possibly dethrone Y&R from the top spot, albeit briefly?
  4. Good: Brooke/Ridge/Taylor (I was tempted to write Brooke/Ridge/Stephanie instead ) At least it was good during its first 5-6 years.
  5. I agree about Sheila. Kimberlin Brown played her, both on Y&R and on B&B, with such menace barely hidden beneath the surface. And in her scenes with Susan Flannery/Stephanie you could feel the rage threatening to break through her facade. It was mesmerizing.
  6. Taylor Forrester. That's all I have to say. Exactly. They still haven't found an explanation too ridiculous to use.
  7. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but if you're going to be that sensitive then you will probably find yourself having to block quite a few posters.
  8. How very mature of you. It's called a different opinion. People do have those on discussion boards.
  9. I don't care about Jack anymore. All his deaths and resurrections has turned the character into a joke. In fact all the deaths and resurrections, not just Jack's, has turned the whole show into a joke. Why should I bother watching DAYS, or any of them, when they treat their audience with such lack of respect?
  10. No thank you. I can think of many things I'd rather do with my time.
  11. A beautiful tribute to my favorite character, Sansa Stark
  12. I've been thinking about that too. It's not surprising though. It feels like B&B has always been looked down upon and been underrated. Of course it doesn't help that it is so dreadful at the moment. But back during the first decade or so it was actually a great soap. Back when Bill Bell was still involved.... It's easy to see that Brad Bell has not inherited his father's talent, and what little talent he had is evaporating rapidly in front of our eyes. It is a show which has had some incredible highs, but also some awful lows.
  13. I haven't seen enough to make a list of all-time best soaps, but if I were to pick the soaps that, in my mind, were the most important to the soap genre it would be (in alphabetical order): All My Children: Susan Lucci/Erica Kane! Enough said! She gave this show, and the soap genre, mainstream attention, and is probably the single most famous soap star. As the World Turns: The first half-hour show, #1 for 20 years, introduced the first super-couple (Penny & Jeff) and the original soap vixen (Lisa), the quintessential soap Days of Our Lives: Famous for its many super-couples, bucked the trend in the 90s when most shows lost viewers and soared in the ratings through its outlandish storylines, setting a new trend for soaps General Hospital: Luke & Laura, the most famous daytime couple ever! Changed daytime in the 80s with action-adventure and then reinvented itself again in the 90s to critical acclaim. Guiding Light: Started on radio in the 1930s and survived the transition to television to become the longest-running soap in history. Honorable mention: The Young and the Restless: The #1 daytime soap for over 30 years, longer than any other soap, but the competition is less fierce than it was during earlier decades.
  14. That's absolutely true. But then they should have called this list "Top 10 greatest soaps of the last 20/25 years" or something. Bingo!
