I have always been a big fan of crazy people and I firmly believe that Soaps do the best job at creating Crazy people. This is probably why I love Crazy's.

Anyway, my favorites will be:

Janet (AMC)

Billy Clyde (AMC)

Allison (OLTL)

Mitch (OLTL)

Speaking as a Southerner with crazy on both sides, bless your heart for posting Julia Sugarbaker! And yes, I agree, Billy Clyde and Kate Collins' Janet from Another Planet were two of my favorite crazies!

I know Carl will agree with me on OLTL's Maria!

Capitol's Paula Denning (she kept her clueless ex-husband hostage in her basement which she had tricked out like a fake hospital complete with elevator door bings and nurses calling for doctors over the P.A.).

I will, too. ;)

Poor Maria Roberts. There really had been love between her and Clint "once upon a time." Unfortunately, time and distance were their enemies; and Maria just could not accept that.

DC's death still hurts my heart. I never caught GCB but I saw Annie Potts on The View one morning and she said she took sort of a "What Would Dixie Do?" approach to her character. Let's not get started on Bernice and her Christmas tree skirt! :lol:

Julia's comments on the South are one of the few things from Designing Women which hasn't horribly dated, and which always seems true, especially in a media culture which always struggles to break away from the idea of the South being nothing but drunken inbred gun-toting mouthbreathers. The DW moments which were so obviously written from the heart are one of the few reasons I can really sit through the show.

    • I was never a big Brenda or Sonny/Brenda fan in her heyday, but I liked her with Jax near the end of the '90s and then came to appreciate her in hindsight much later. Caroline and I have had a lot of discussions centering around the S/B pairing in latter years and their doomed marriage in the early 2010s, and how their final (very good, brutally honest) scenes in 2011 indicated why it is futile to pair Sonny with anyone else - because if the character cannot change for her, he won't for anyone. I'm assuming Khan hasn't seen them so it's time to post them again! It was the first time in years Maurice had impressed me, and the last. Also some of the last, best work of the very longtime writing team, most of which went out with Guza and JFP. And I do agree - they could bring her back tomorrow and it would still work with them, and would be necessary to evolve the character and move him into an elder statesman role (with VM taking the share of story) and transition more and more away from the mob. We've discussed that one around here before too, though. It's also why Frank doesn't bring her back; he knows she is too big for the show he chooses to make and what he chooses to focus on.
    • Yeah, I mean, at least Promised Land makes Queens look good, but the producers should start talks about moving this to Hulu asap because it's not going to survive on ABC.

    • Khan, you speak the truth. He's only stuck with Nikki now because he finally realized that any women under 50 (his preferred age range) wouldn't touch him with a bargepole.
