Soap Storylines: There's always an upside and a downside!
Daytime's storylines can be riveting, grabbing us, forcing us to come back daily for our next dose. They can also just plain tic us off, leaving us with a bad taste in our mouth. We can all identify with one another at some point! I've shared some of the comments from our overflowing 'online mailbag' on the storylines that are either irritating to some folk, or are of interest, to others!
Simon, Katie and Carly Storyline As the World Turns
From: Barbara P.: Please reunite Katie and Simon. Let Katie fall and Simon find each other one more time. And hopefully Katie has Simon baby. They are so good for each other. Simon and Carly don't mesh will together. It is so clear that Katie still loves Simon. Yours Truly A Big Fan!
Hooked on GH General Hospital
From: Debbie F.: I started watching General Hospital when I was 19 years old and because of family responsibilities stopped watching and two years ago my married daughter got me hooked on General Hospital. I love the show, my favorite character is Sonny and I also love Alexis. I would love to see them get hooked up together. I also like Luke & Laura which have always been my favorite. Keep up the good work on the show and Rick is just pure evil. I do think Alexis needs to find a new love.
Language offensive in Pine Valley All My Children
From: Evelyn H.: I have watched ALL MY CHILDREN since the day it aired! I have always used it for my unwind time after work everyday. It was a great stress reliever. Now that I am retired and keep our 5 year old granddaughter a few days a week, I find I can no longer watch, except when alone, because the language is so offensive, and certainly not what any of us would want our grandchildren to hear as acceptable! Why do you not go back 20-10 or even 5 years ago and listen to how well they spoke? Do you have to have 'gutter talk' just because the morals of unloved people are talking like that in everyday life? Children today are thrown away, parents are 1/2 timers, no one willing to sacrifice anything for family time or togetherness. Why? Please, clean up the filth talk on soaps. Why call anyone a "b****"? We don't in everyday life why on soaps, or sob or use any of the bad language. The part of Kendall Hart on All My Children is just cursing more, though her part is sweeter. Love the story - a lifetime watcher!.
Brooke, Ridge and Nick Storyline Bold and the Beautiful
From: Lynn G.: I think this situation between Brook, Ridge and Nick is ridiculous, how many times a month are you going to make her choose? It's making me think twice about whether I should continue watching the show.
Too many flashbacks within the storylines? Desire
From: Beverly B.: Too many repeats and flashbacks. I would not want to see the next series because of this.
Bo and Hope Storyline Days of Our Lives
From: Phyllis S.: You take too long to finish a storyline!! This Bo and Hope thing has gone on forever. They need to be together.
Inside the Light a waste of time? Guiding Light
