I think two older people in here, Infiniti and Rocketta, are being a bit selfish.
The younger generation needed, my generation needed our own soap.
We wanted to start off knowing everything that soap had to offer.
We know there's always going to be secrets but we needed that.
The night soaps were starting to go down the drain in the late 90s, 90210 and Melrose Place.
We absolutely had nothing.
And I'm sorry that you lost Another World for us but GET THE FUCK OVER IT.
It's been almost a decade now.
No matter how much you diss Passions, it will always have a special place in my heart.
I watched the first episode. I watched the last.
I watched how Teresa Lopez Fitzgerald could never let go of Ethan for 9 years and her persistence paid off.
I watched Tabitha Lennox turn from a bad evil witch to a good witch.
I watched every black person have sex with their relative. Ok I might have had a problem with that.
I watched Charles Divins (Chad) become a good actor, from Kimberley Locke's music video 8th world wonder to Passions to Half & Half.
And it didn't help that he was fine as all hell.
They were the ones who made supernatural things on soaps cool.
They were the ones who actually approached looking at the Black DL lifestyle.
I love Passions so much I even considered switching to DirectTV.
So yes this summer it got to a point where even I couldn't defend it but there were some things that will continue to go on other soaps out there that remind me of Passions.
Maybe that's why Another World fans are so bitter, nothing with Amother World actually lived on.
Not my fault, that's why it probably got cancelled in the first place.
