Way back in the stone age (1976), this show had the "haves" (Brooks, Chancellors) and the "have nots" (Fosters, Beckers). The cast was real and so was the show. We didn't have doubles, children found to be others' children years later, and people returning from the dead ending up declaring they were gay!
Liz, Snapper, Jill and Greg were real people with real problems. I thank the show for bringing them back, even if temporary.
