Members NorrthCafe Posted April 23, 2011 Members Share Posted April 23, 2011 I think there are a number of plots soap fans are nearly universally tired of seeing: Sleeping around within families (male and female characters) Whose your daddy? Given up for dead - only to have the character come back to life multiple times. Trick pregnancy used to hold on to a man who isn't the child's father. What are the storylines you actually MISS!?!?!? I miss the socially relevant storylines soaps use to do that soap writers THINK they're doing now (Ha! Ha! Bold and Beautiful, the joke is on the audience). When ATWT revealed that Angel Lange's resulting inability to have a child after an abortion was because she aborted her father's child and not Caleb Snyder's child, I could have fallen over! Caleb couldn't forgive himself for what he thought he'd taken from Angel. Angel appeared to be a bit of a sociopath (forcing Holden to stay with her, stealing from her father)and in the end, she was a desperate young woman fighting to free herself from her abuser. I'm not advocating an abuse storyline per year per soap, but I do miss storylines that had grit and shined a bright light on serious issues.
