I don't watch soapies anymore, I might catch a few minutes of "Days of our Lives" when seeing what else is on though - just to see if the whole Bo, Hope, Billie love triangle is still happening. More than a decade ago, I was completely hooked on "Santa Barbara" and "Loving".
Coronation Street, it's older than me and is filmed and about characters from my hometown.
I used to watch Days of Our Lives. I remember back in the day when the Hope, Billie, Bo love triangle was going on. I didn't know they brought that back up. I stopped watching it after the Princess Gina, Father John thing about 10 or so years ago. Last couple of times I checked it seemed really different. I saw Will grown up and last I remember he was a baby.
That's about the time I was really into Days as well. I think I actually stopped watching because of all the drama with Sami....it got very old. I happened to catch a few minutes the other day and noticed that Hope apparently has a 4-5 year old daughter. I've missed a lot, lol. It was good fun back in the day though.
No time to watch soaps. Obviously some enjoy them but I cannot understand why. Rather spend time on the hub pages!
I grew up in the 1950s with my grandmother watching As the World Turns every afternoon. Her housework and shopping were always done before it started at 1:30 pm.
I watch Korean "telenovelas" made into movies at Netflix
Nothing like General Hospital and Dark Shadows. They were back to back when I was in junior high. Watched General Hospital in College. The last time I watched a soap, I thought I had tuned onto a porno sight then got out fast. Looked at the listing and it was indeed a soap opera.
I have watched most of my life. Watching them with my Mom as a child and then continued. I used to watch almost all of them and then just watched The Young and Restless for over 30 years. I started to watch Coronation Street about 5 years ago and haven't looked back. I finally had the nerve to stop watching the Y & R. The writing is horrible, or they think we are just idiots to accept the storylines that they repeat year after year. I think Victor has been married 12 times, almost every wedding someone gets shot and don't forget the miracle plastic surgery makeovers which allows evil women to come back as as a well liked character and destroy lives. Ridiculous. Coronation Street is superior to any American soap. It is realistic, dramatic and funny at the same time. The characters are not perfectly made up, or wearing the most expensive clothes. 98% of them are working class citizens and when they are outside, they are really outside. No fake sets there.
I've never watched the Y & R but it sounds a lot like Days of our Lives! You're the second person who has mentioned Coronation Street - I will definitely keep a look out for it. I used to be very much into The Bold and the Beautiful and watched this with my Mom, but eventually it became a bit tiresome watching Ridge try and choose yet again between Taylor and Brooke.
Looks like an awesome soap to start watching - I think I'll see if we can get some more of the episodes, thanks!
Young and the Restless. Because it was my mom's favorite soap opera. So, we always had it on during the day time when I was growing up. Then my mom stated watching the Bold and the Beautiful. So, we started watching the Bold and the Beautiful. I do love the story lines and I always wanted to se what happens next. I do have to admit that it has been over 20 years since I have seen a soap opera.
