Your Soap Plots – Love Em Or Hate Em?
With every passing week comes more drama in soapland. Some like it, some love it but others totally detest it! Before we get started sharing the thoughts of our readers, let’s begin with what some had to say about their experience visiting our website!
Frances L.: I love to read the daily recaps and comments!
Cindy S.: I love your soap opera page!
Tracy D.: I want to say this is the best site! The recaps are great and always on time!!!
Jessica C.: I just wanted to say how much I love this site! I started working full time about seven months ago and so I couldn’t watch GH anymore. And sometimes things drag on for so long I don’t want to watch. Now I just come on this site daily and can know everything that is going on! Keep up the good work!
L.B.: I like Soaps.com because if I miss a thing I get catch up on it here!
Andrea C.: Thanks so much for the update concerning Bryton on Y&R and his status. I asked you all to find out for me and you came through. Thanks… SOAPS.COM IS THE BEST!
John F.: I enjoy your soaps here. I think you all do a Great Job with the Cast Lists!
Editor’s note: Much appreciated and this feedback will only make us work that much harder for you!
Sabine Singh’s Greenlee vs Rebecca Buddig’s Greenlee
Love it: Susan D.: I would have preferred if your soap fans could choose whether we want the former Greenlee back or not. Personally I prefer the present Greenlee. I think you should keep her on. She is doing an incredible job.
Bru C.: Sabine is such a wonderful asset to AMC. I can’t believe that TPTB have let her go.
Veronica C.: I’ve been watching All My Children since Babe and Bianca had their children and I still haven’t got use to this new Babe. I always looked forward to watching the whole Babe and JR story. It’s what’s kept me being a fan all these years.
Fred J.: After reading all the comments about this show, I have decided that the problems are that the writers who spoiled DOOL are now on the way to spoiling AMC. I changed soaps several years ago because DOOL had begun to drag on and on and now that has happened to AMC. And to rudely handle the Greenlee thing has really put a bad taste in my mouth.
Mixed views on Jesse’s return… from the dead!
Lola J.: Congrats AMC for bringing back Jesse and Angie. We need more African Americans on the ABC shows.
Deborah G.: I am 52 years old and I have been watching AMC since I was 17 years old and what I want to know is… How on earth can you bring back Jesse Hubbard when he was killed in the line of police duty many years ago? I could have sworn he was killed off years ago. Please check your facts.
Answer: Deborah, this has been done on many of the soaps for years. Where there is a will, there is a way! This is where your suspension of disbelief will be needed!
Tara B.: A lot of us that watch the soaps are disabled and single. Would you please let things go smooth for a change and let the couples be happy and show some happiness, people going on family trips… Our lives are sad enough without having to watch it on TV also.
Juanita L.: I have watched “As the World Turns” since I was 14 years old and it’s still my all time favorite.
Denise D.: I love the chemistry between Brad & Katie. I hope you don’t drag this thing out and let them get together. There was no chemistry between Jack & Katie but with Brad….WOW.
Fans upset over Dusty’s on screen murder!
Lucille T.: For the first time in all the years Dusty has been on the show, I really hate to see him leave. I never enjoyed watching him until this last time he returned to Oakdale and he has added so much that I just hate for him to depart. It’s time Kim, Tom and Emily find out just how right Dusty is about Chris. Also, when actors leave who played so long and great roles, I would like to hear them mentioned in the shows every now and then – such as John, Penny, Andy and Frannie.
Sandy G.: Why would ATWT let Grayson McCouch go? He is an incredible actor, so believable, so flexible. I have been watching this show for over 40 years. I am so disappointed. I hope Scott Bryce is not leaving because he too is such a great actor. If the rumors are true I wish them the very best and hope I will be seeing them on the big screen.
Gloria C.: Why in the world would you kill off Dusty? He was one of the best men actors there and how come you didn’t let him live to show everyone that he was right about Chris trying to kill his dad? Bad move taking Dusty off…
Answer: Though we at Soaps.com are deeply saddened that the actor is leaving, it is of his own accord that he goes.
Verena O.: When I heard Kyle Lowder as Rick Forrester singing on “The Bold and the Beautiful” I became a fan of him (Kyle as a singer). He has a great voice!
All about Stephanie!
Carol A.: I think that Brooke should blackmail Stephanie with the rape. It was because of her Brooke was raped.
Alicia C.: You have to keep Eric and Donna together. Somebody has to stop Stephanie. This is getting ridiculous. Please don’t break up Eric and Donna. Let the cat out of the bag about the black mail!
Peggy H.: The public has had enough of Stephanie for a while. Can the writers not find anything or anybody else to write about? Her storyline is always the same, mean and wicked and getting boring. Please focus on someone else and something else for the New Year.
Josephine C.: Stephanie has had her time with Eric. It’s time Eric gets a better life. She had Brooke rapped. It’s time she pays. We beg you… don’t let Donna break it off for Stephanie. I believe Stephanie had her sister shoot her anyway, or she did it on her own.
Dale C.: Does Steph always get her way? It is never ending for her. You would think that someone would out smart her.
Zombie John's return
Tammy F.: Thank you for bringing back John Black (Drake Hogestyn). Days would not be the same without him. I'm so excited that he is back...
Evelyn T.: I want John back with Marlena!
Kookie L.: Please let's have John and Marlena have a happy reunion, proving love can overcome evil at all cost. Bo and Hope have got to stay in love. Please show more on Julie and Doug.
Deb W.: Don't you think on Days of Our Lives people die and come back to life way too often? Seems every few months someone dies only to come back to the land of the living. I myself have watched Days from back in the 60's. But I am so tired of the long drawn out deaths brought back to life that I will soon stop watching. The only good this show has to offer anymore is Bo and Hope along with Steve and Kayla. It's a good thing real doctors don't have problems as Marlena has (none could keep a lick to practice). Shawn needs to move forward. Bell is a big cry baby who wants everything her way. She makes me sick to watch and Sami… please take her off the show or give her a more normal life, one at least we can believe. As for John… who needs him around? How many times has he died?
Chris C.: I am glad to see John back. Gee a guy back from the dead, tortured and brainwashed by Stefano, can’t remember Marlena the love of his life. That sounds so familiar. Oh yeah! That same thing happened to Steve and Kayla last summer. Only in Salem. I guess the storyline worked once, why not again? I think the writers need to get an imagination or look up past episodes. Hey, maybe Ford Decker can come back from the dead too.
Sam, Sam, Sam!
Darlene G.: Sam is my favorite character on GH. She has talent, charisma and beauty. She is able to ignite the scene and the scripts she is handed. It's time now for Sam to be able to get a life away from her heartache. She and Lucky are great together. I'll always favor "Jasam", but the writers seem to have another idea. At least give Sam the ability to hold her head high, admit her mistakes, pay for them and start to live a healthy life. I'd love to see Sam and Lucky develop into something more meaningful. Sam has brought Lucky into a whole new light. I never paid much attention to Lucky before his relationship with Sam. He is a good actor, not to mention handsome as can be.
Charlene M.: I don't want Sam to be a bad person. If she’s going to stay with Lucky, don't let her betray him. I want Jason to regret he left her!
Isabel G.: I am so happy that Sarah is coming back. But I wish as Carly not as another character. I have been watching GH for 15 years!!!
Bored and sad
Becky G.: Why did you kill off two people who make the show worth watching? You guys kept Emily around as a figment of Nick's memory but what’s going to happen after he has his operation and finds out she’s not real? You guys didn't even give Georgie a chance to find love with Spinelli at all. That was real sad for them not even know how each other felt. That is a shame.
Guedaige G.: G.H is getting boring. I use to watch it every day and when I couldn't watch it I would record it. Now I don't even want to watch or read about it. I want Jason and Sam to get back together, as well as Lucky and Liz. Sam and Jason are the perfect match because they understand each other and plus Sam knows how to deal with Jason’s business. Liz and Lucky also are a perfect couple when they are together. I'm so tired of the director making Sam look like a bad person. Yes, she did cheat on Jason, but he lied to her too. Liz is not innocent as well. Please come up with a better storyline for Sam. If she is not with Jason then stop making her look like a terrible nasty person. I liked watching G.H BUT NOT ANYMORE!
Nina G.: Please give Doris a rest. Give her compassion. Let Ashlee and Coop be together. Ava needs to get over coop instead of blackmailing people.
Desiree M.: I am happy to see storylines involving people of larger sizes in major storylines. I feel as a larger person myself there needs to be more of these issues of large people having roles on shows especially younger role models. Not since Traci on the show Y&R has there been a character I’ve been able to identify with. So thank you. I would like to see more characters in this kind of everyday world and realize we are people too. Not everyone is model perfect.
Anita M.: I would love to see Lizzie have a baby by Bill Lewis. They make a good couple. Please let them be together.
Marion R.: I am tired of Reva getting the wrong deal. Josh needs to put Cassie and Will in their respective places. He needs to be a man instead of a wimp. Also, Reva needs to dump Jeffrey. His character is all wrong for Reva. She is a strong person and Jeffrey tries to pull power over her. Get real. Reva would never put up with that. Also, please get rid of Harley. Her character has run its course, especially portraying her as a "need a man, steal nieces boyfriend" because she was dumped out of her own stupidity. Remember she practically threw Natalia and Gus together.
Lesley M.: I have been an avid viewer since the late 70's courtesy of my mom. I truly believe the writers need better storylines. I say bring the Reardons back! Shake it up with Nola, Quint, Tony, etc. They had fantastic plots back then but Cassie and the like are so boring. Someone needs to shake it up!
Carmen C.: My sister Carolyn and I have at least twice weekly conversations via phone about our disdain for Cassie. I hope Will does her in. That would be a great way to get her out of the show for good. If I were Reva, I wouldn't have Josh back. I mean not only sleeping with but marrying your sister's ex borders on incest. I keep hoping the writers are going to take GL in a new and more believable storyline. I've been watching many years and I'm not ready to give up on the good citizens of Springfield. I don't think Josh presents himself as a believable minister. I haven't forgotten that Reva was married to not only Josh's brother but his father as well - So I'm not cutting her any slack.
Elaine A.: I would love to hear from Trevor St. John! He is my favorite actor. He is so cute!
Kay A.: Please find some way to keep Moe and Noelle! We love them. You need some funny stuff in the show and they are great. Please bring them back. Let Moe open a cafe where Vicki lives. I know you are keeping Gigi and her son, love them, too.
Marcie & Tommy
Kim M.: When are we going to see Marcie give up Tommy to Todd? This little thing with Marcie running away with Tommy is getting out of hand. I would like to see someone go in after her and arrest her.
Daniele F.: Why have you not yet commented on the abuse of the child, Tommy, when he is subjected to Marcie’s screaming and crying, as well as the gun swinging?
Marie B.: I know the writers are on strike but when they come back enough already with Marcie getting off scot-free for kidnapping across state lines. Even though Viki doesn’t want to press charges she was still held hostage at gunpoint. John has had enough free range as a former agent and cop. Please let’s stay within the rules of law. Everyone get off scot-free except Todd. He needs a break. He was almost killed in a death chamber. Please let’s clear up some of the nonsense storylines. I have watched this show for many years but some of these storylines keep good actors from receiving awards. This show has not received awards for a while that should tell the writers something.
Love it: Michael S.: I hope Ethan goes through with his divorce to Gwen. After all, she's been keeping a secret from him for so long now, and it’s time it came out. To this day he still doesn’t know that she revealed his true paternity to the tabloids.
Loving the show, hate that it is canceled - again!
Love it: Anitra W.: I miss you (the show) a whole lot!
Love it: Catrice L.: I would like to say that I LOVE THE SHOW! It always keeps me guessing!
Hate it: Lisa W.: I was very upset when NBC cancelled Passions. DirecTV picking up the show was only good to people who have it, which I am not one of those people. I understand that they’re thinking of canceling the show now. I like the thought of Oxygen picking up the show, because then I could watch it again. So even though I am sad that the show might not make it, I will be so happy if another network picks it up.
Hate it: Lisa M.: I really hate that Passions went to DirecTV. I think it was a good combination with Days. They get good soap operas on and then take them off. Example: Another World and Passions - to put another hour on the Today Show, like the first few hour isn’t enough! We miss you... please come back!
Hate it: Jessette W.: I am not only heartbroken but also incensed! First you take Passions off the air on network television and now you are only airing three times a week? Chasing the almighty dollar has left you with WHAT exactly? I really want to know. Please explain to me, the faithful viewer why it is now so difficult to catch my favorite program.
Answer: It's all very sad but the show's last episodes on DirecTV will be viewed in August 2008. Soaps.com will let all fans know if the show is moved to another network. Hang in there!
Rosann G.: Sharon and Jack need to have a baby this year.
Rayetta F.: Why can't Y&R write a script where everybody is not sleeping with everyone that they know? Why can't Jack be happy for a change? Why can't Amber be happy with Cane, and why break up Lily and Daniel? I get sick and tired of looking at a soap where everyone is sleeping with the next person. Bring some new people for them to be with.
Marilyn S.: Please, please, give Brad Carlton a life. Sharon has chosen Jack and they are great together. He needs to get off her and find someone for himself. I am tired of the storyline of Brad chasing Sharon. If she goes with him you have lost me, I won't watch.
Donna E.: Lily is too young for Cane! Who writes this stuff anyway? I have been watching for years and really look forward to my hour of Y&R.
Remembering past cast members!
Anita S.: I loved seeing Cassie. I miss her. Glad to see how good she looked and I hope she [the actress] is doing fine.
Renee S.: The best episodes were when Jill was having fun with Larry. She is ready for a love interest and their chemistry is priceless.
Till next time, keep your thoughts coming!
