Unpopular Opinions

Recommended Posts

What are some of your unpopular soap opinions?

 

Some of mine (I’ll start with the soaps currently on air):

 

B&B:

I was never a huge fan of the Ridge/Taylor pairing.

 

I prefer Liam to Wyatt.

 

DAYS:

EJ was only viable and likable with Nicole.

 

Victor and Maggie haven’t been relevant or needed in decades.

 

Mike and Carrie were so much better than Austin and Carrie.

 

GH:

Elizabeth hasn’t been a likable character since Lucky died in the fire.

 

I never liked the Dante/Lulu pairing and thought he would have been so much better with Sam.

 

Sarah Brown is still the best Carly and her version was the only time I liked the character.

 

Y&R:

Lily and Cane need to break up, she would be better paired with Nick or Billy.

 

Phyllis was only ever somewhat likable during the first round of Jack/Phyllis.

 

Those are some of mine, let me know if you don’t think any of them are all that unpopular. These are what I think seem to be unpopular. What are some of yours?

@vetsoapfan, I don't think that's such an unpopular opinion. I feel the same way.

 

I's like to see CBS rebroadcast two vintage eps of Y&R every day, starting from its debut in 1973, in the current show's timeslot. Ditto NBC and Days and ABC with GH (or AMC or OLTL).

Agreed! I also preferred her with Lucky and Patrick over Nikolas.

 

I thought Jennifer Bransford was actually pretty good as Carly, she unfortunately never stood a chance.

Same here. I liked her disposition, a smile that lit up a room. It makes me miss the Qs a lot!

I always loved and adored Loving. (Yes, I know, the cheese stands alone.)

 

I loathed Alicia Minshew as Kendall on All My Children

 

Elaine Princi was my favorite "Dorian Lord" on One Life to Live. (Enters Witness Protection Program...)

 

I think the dialogue on all of the soaps (especially the Bell soaps) is the worst on television. Shondaland shows (especially Scandal) come in a close second.

While she was not favorite Dorian, I thought Princi was very good in the role. In fact, I thought ALL the actresses chosen for the part were quite good in their own way, including Dixie Carter when she subbed for Nancy Pinkerton in 1974.

I don't think that was an unpopular opinion. Back in the day, Mike and Carrie had a huge following. I know I certainly liked them a lot as a couple, but then I couldn't stand that dim bulb Austin.

GH
I hated that the Cassadines were revived and wished they had been left in the 80s.

OLTL
I liked Nicholas Walker's Max better than James DePaiva.

RH/OLTL
I hated Roscoe Born as Joe....and his reappearances as Mitch caused me to "go on hiatus."

I considered Thorsten Kaye the guy who ate every soap he was on at ABC.

While I did prefer AT’s version I enjoyed NL’s version and do not understand the hate she gets.

AMC:

Babe Carey was one of the worst characters in soap history.

 

OLTL:

I hated John and Natalie, he was more enjoyable with Evangeline and even Blair.

 

GL/GH:

Carrie Marler was Jane Elliot’s best soap character ever and she gave her best performances as Carrie, not Tracy Quartermaine.

I’ve heard many people say that.  Wish I could see more than a clip here or there.  

 

 I think Tracy was her most popular role, and certainly most iconic.  But I’ve hear other people say that Carrie was her best performance.  I think she says it herself too.
