: Soaps are good because there is a balance between good and evil.
It's not one sided otherwise a lot of people would not be watching.
That's my view on this as well.
While we all know it's a fictional story dealing with fictional characters, I just hate the fact that, of late, all the "criminals" seem to be running amok in GC. I'm not talking about doing "bad" because, yes, every character has done "bad" things on the show - makes for interesting story telling. But what I despise even more than the criminals continually getting away with their crimes
(too much of that in real life,IMO, hence the appeal in reel life to me is seeing justice done because it CAN be
with the strokes of a keyboard), is the trend to have previously "decent" (relatively speaking, of course) characters like Lauren now becoming complicit with the criminals.
We have enough lying, scheming, criminal-minded characters on the show already who, yes, spice up the show! But why can't we maintain some semblence of balance between decent characters and "bad" ones? Lauren is/was
one of the few remaining decent characters over the years...and I just hope they don't play this "Lauren gonna bring Jack down too" s/l for long!
