Soap Operas: Best & Worst of 2014

Recommended Posts

This is a joke, right?

I need a B&B viewer to explain "Ridge can't draw" to me. That was an actual storyline?

yes and it was actually quite good. B&B had a location shoot in Dubai for Bill and Brooke's wedding. Ridge crashed it and flew off with her in a helicopter, but unbeknowist to him, Justin, Bill's right hand man was flying and dropped Ridge in the middle of the ocean under Bill's orders. Ridge went missing for a few days but when he was found, he was "different". The fall caused some trauma which resulted in him being unable to draw again. His hands would shake and he couldnt translate the creative vision he had in his mind on paper. He kept this a secret bc of his pride and bc he didnt want to jeopardize his position at Forrester

Around the same time, Caroline, Rick's wife, who was the head designer for the Hope for the Future line, was dabbling in couture. Ridge found that he could work through her by guiding her hands convincing her that he was mentoring and helping her improve her skills.. Caroline eventually found out the extent of his injuries but didnt care and decided to keep it a secret as they mutually helped each other. She developed a crush on him and led her on a bit. Thirsty Thot Myrna, learned of a kiss between them and spilled it at a corporate meeting, which led to Rick dumping Caroline and having an affair with her. Ridge eventually regained his ability to draw but the effects of this are still playing out and its really the best storyline on soaps right now. Here are promos from it

Logan is an ass-kisser and very much about pushing some of the "legends," as it reminds him of when he was relevant. It's one of the reasons why he was always ride or die Guza. He's a great example of how out of touch much of this genre is.

I can imagine what the failed writer and failed actress Hinsey would have for a best list. I guess whoever comes to her bar.

Michael Logan has always made Tony Geary a cottage industry. He's just sucking up to his exclusive.

A classic soap romance that included an evil interloper, interrupted wedding, explosion and the type of cute romance that Kirsten Storms excels at playing. Why isn't she a big rom-com movie star? Nathan & Maxie have only had one date but they already feel like an epic love affair.

I sometimes feel like people are either desperate for anything to praise on GH, or they get a memo from the PR department. This is barely even a storyline. Storms has only had one popular "cute" romance in her entire 15-year soap career - Shawn/Belle on DAYS. All of her popular stories on GH were when Maxie was a neurotic bitch. "Spixie" became a nonstarter with fans in record time, and then died a slow, painful death (complete with any gimmick possible to drag out the story and hide the fact that the show did not want to put them together and fans did not want to see them together) until Bradford Anderson finally went back to the pond.

Storms playing "cute" comes across as a middle-aged woman trying to be a high schooler. It's more sad than anything else.

I thought she had a cute romance with Coop and Jesse. Both were just cut short because Guza hates cop characters [minus Dominic] and they became expendable. And Spixie was gross from start to finish. Spinelli was only endearing to me when my precious Georgie was sadly pining for this loser.

It was tough for me to see the stuff with Coop as cute romcom because Maxie was so screwed up. That worked for her (as soon as Spinelli came around Maxie was ruined as a character because the show only wrote her through his glazed-over eyes), whereas the stuff with Cue Card Ken is so boring even the show barely cares.

Me too. I feel like they really missed it with not connecting him to Brenda and Julia. It pisses me off too that they killed Logan too. Now we are stuck with the likes of Franco as Scott's sire. :rolleyes:

At least Logan was interesting and resembled his father.

I forgot to say that I did appreciate Newcomb mentioning The Doctors. As I said in the other thread, The Doctors and the return of beautiful bisexual bastard Robert Sugden were my one and only highlights this year.
