For those of you who don't know, "Passions" is a daytime drama here in the U.S. that is horribly written, horribly acted, and just plain DUMB! (IMHO)

Hon, the standard for daytime TV is pretty low. Why don't we develop a gay soap opera. We'll call it "The Dykes." It will be the saga of one woman, helplessly in love with her husband's mistress.

Why??? I watch Passions. This is great news. It's different and I like that. I watched from the first day because I wanted to watch a soap opera but I wanted to know everything about it. I didn't want to watch one where thirty years of stuff happened and I would always be left out in something. Tabitha is my favorite character. I love Beth Wallace as well. Teresa Lopez Fitzgerald Crane is annoying though. Someone needs to slap her skinny ass. I was kinda mad at the writers though. That was fucked up. Why did all the black people in the soap have to be related? Whitney and Chad? Chad has a nice ass though...

Didn't Tabitha put a spell on her to leave because of the demons or something, so Kay could have Miguel, but Miguel ran after Charity, and Miguel returned (as someone new) I love Beth. Nothing can top when Beth and Charly (Allistair) had her in the pit and tortured her by shooting her and puttin clown mask on. That was awesome. I hate Gwen and Ethan just needs to get back with Theresa because he knows that he still loves her. Allistair has an impersonator at the hospital and everybody thinks he's in a coma.

OMG. They're going to cut Adrian and Beth. They're the hottest actor on the show. How the hell do you cut former Miss America? Cut Simone or Miguel. Don't cut my girl Beth.

I remember Beth!

She was the crazy bitch with the old mother and the monkey and she tried to steal that one guy (Louise I think, not sure) and she kidnapped his kid and tried to Sharon or whatever her name was and eventually she just got annoying!

Here come the haters. Passions is an interesting soap and the other soaps just imitate Passions but better. Passions was one of the first soap with supernatural stuff and then Port Charles was doing it, then Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live, etc. Passions might not ever win a Soap award or an Emmy or win anything in fact but people dp enjoy watching it if not for it's plots then for it's hot men.

NBC was at it heights when it showed The Days of Our Lives, Doctors and Another World. Santa Barbara wasn't so bad, but there's just so much they could do with the blonde and hispanic guy love story. They've since cancelled the two latter and haven't been able to recover since.

It'll take more than a Marlena exorcism and killing the cast off of The Days of Our Lives to save NBC's daytime dramas.

NBC daytime hasn't been the same since they killed off Another World.

I'm not talking a reality show! No, if we're going to "sell" lesbians to the public, these are going to be the best dressed, hottest, most "femme" lipstick lesbians imaginable. Then, after we capture an audience, we toss in a couple of homely ones and a couple of butches (all with hearts of gold, after all).

They should have a soap with me, Joan Rivers, Neely, and Sally Struthers. Instead of "The Young and the Restless" it could be "The Old and the Weary."

They should develop Devon's charater a little more. I think he is a decent actor for daytime standards.

I caught the miniseries they did about Dynasty. Did they have a reunion after? Linda Evans always looked a little fucked up to me so who could tell the difference? :lol:

I always admire Joan's new look, if she ever loses her comedy talent, she can always get a job in a bad--as a drum--her face is pulled tighter than a drum! Joan, of course, you know I'm just kidding. I'd KILL to look that good!

Yeah, Linda's lips look swollen. It was hilarious because they showed the old scenes from the show as they were reminiscing, and they'd come back to the current actors, and none of them looked the same.

Joan looks great for her age, I must say. Hell, I'd rather see her all remodeled and maintained than the normal, unadulterated octagenarian you see all over the place. Melissa better be careful before she finds herself looking more like Joan's sister than daughter.

I just got that on the new "9 to 5" DVD with interviews with the cast. They're showing like a scene from the movie with the three of them from 1980 and then they cut to the broads as they are today, and you really want to shriek! Dolly looks like an alien today compared to before, Jane looks about 100 years old. Lily Tomlin, actually, it's not jaw-dropping like the other two, she's aged the best of the three--which isn't saying much! :o

Sal, she does look more like my sister. My older sister! The bags under Melissa's eyes could carry Diana Ross's tour wardrobe.

Hel, there's talk of a 9 to 5 sequel, continuing the story 25 years on. What's the plot going to be? Dolly, Lily and Jane trying to escape from their nursing home?!

Okay, so I'm sure most soap operas are guilty of the same thing, but:

No joke, three years ago my sister watched Passions religiously, so I caught a few episodes from time to time. It's so poorly written/plotted that it was actually mildly entertaining. But yeah, the other day my sister was trying to start watching Passions again... I asked, "But how will you know what the heck's going on?" And we proceeded to watch an episode where Teresa for the millionth time agonized over how to split up Ethan and Gwen. It was hilarious. I understand drawing a plot element out to create suspense, but daaaaaamn!

Soap operas... :lol:
