Soap Opera Addict Speaks Up!

Yesterday, I watched my first daytime soap opera since college. Catch what I said? Daytime. I've always been a sucker for nighttime soaps like Dark Shadows (remember that one?), Peyton Place, Dallas (loved JR), Falcon Crest, Dynasty, and the humorous Soap, to name just a few. And the new ones - Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives (don't even try to fool yourself. Those two are soaps!).

But what really tickled me is that so many of the oldie goldies are still out there - As the World Turns, General Hospital, One Life to Live, All My Children, Days of Our Live...... and the one I watched, The Young and the Restless.

What drama! All the family issues, dysfunctional relationships, sexual tension, beautiful actors, murder and mayhem, conniving and plotting. I loved it! I'm calling it research for my next murder mystery, if anyone asks.

Am I hooked after only one episode? Probably. But I'll record the shows so I can watch them when I can. And I have to try The Bold and the Beautiful. Can't wait.

How about you? Are you a soap opera addict?
