That slap is the sound of me hitting the person who came up with them.

Being serious for a moment, the thing about all good stories is that they have an ending. Soap operas don't have an ending, and from that major weakness springs the vast majority of their failings. You know how to do them in America, treat them as exercises in glossy absurdity. Here there's still the pretence of social realism, but the most preposterous things occur in them - not a good combination.

they can be fun when you watch them and try to guess the scenario of what will happen later
99/100 you guess it right

I admit they can be tedious and downright hilariously bad but in the summer, they can be addicting.

Today's show
Father Lonigan: You have to tell Ethan the truth, Theresa
Theresa: No I can't he won't forgive me
FL: Ethan has to know he's the father of your child
Theresa: Please don't make me. He won't forgive me if he knew I lied.
FL: Tell him the truth. It's the right thing
Theresa: I can't he will hate me forever

My life is like a soap opera so why following the drama of other people on the telly when I am busy enough with handling my own? :spit:

To be honest, I used to watch several soap operas but my schedule doesn't allow me to do so anymore and after missing a few episodes you usually lose track of what is going on which makes the soap opera totally uninteresting for me.

She's in America ;)

I used to love Passions... as diabolically bad as it was. It used to screen in Australia at 3pm and I'd tape it every day while I was at work (my EMBARRASSING confession of the day :o :o :o ).

About 2 years ago they stopped airing it here :( I never even found out if Sheridan and Luis got back together :sad: and did Whitney and Chad ever find out the truth about who Chad's real parents are? :speakles:

I forget who Chad's parents are but he decided he was gay for a little while and cheated on Whitney with this freak Vincent who is actually Eve and Julian's son and Vicent went around terrorizing people and ****** and mudering and blackmailing. Luis and Sheridan are not together, Sheridan is a little bit crazy now, but Luis is on death row and he and Fancy Crane (Sheridan's niece) are together and about to get married minutes before he goes in the death chamber :rolls: What else, what else... Fox pretended he was dying so that Kay would marry him instead of Miguel. In my opinion this sucks for Kay because the new Miguel is hotter than the new Fox. The old Fox was SO much hotter than this new one. Although old Fox vs. Jesse Metcalf would have been quite the hotness battle.

:eek: (Should I be suprised that so much of that was completely bizarre? :rolls: )

Firstly, the idea I got before they rudely took it off air was that Chad was Eve and Julian's son... so apparantly he wasn't after all? and that is obviously this nasty Vincent!

Sheridan is crazy? Wow, she was one of the only sane ones on the show. How did Luis and Sheridan not end up back together? Isn't that always meant to happen in these shows? When I stopped watching she was still with Luis's hot brother (the one they thought was dead... was it Brian?).

So much has changed! I think Theresa was seeing Fox and Miguel was still with Charity... whatever happened to Charity??

Fox and Kay sound like they are as bad as each other!!!

I want Passions back here :(

Even weirder is that Vincent has been running around doing all his dirty business dressed as a half man half woman... like split vertically :rolls: He killed Simone's girlfriend. Oh yeah, Simone is a lesbian all of a sudden. Paloma Lopez-Fitzgerald and Noah Bennett are a thing now.. they're engaged apparently. Charity ran away.. I forget why. Tabitha has a daughter now.. Andorra. She is like 4 years old and only speaks via speech bubble. :lol: Sheridan is just weird because I guess she's jealous of Fancy. Fancy used to be with Noah... but I forget what exactly happened with them. I think they broke up some time around the tsunami.

Yes what I type just gets more insane with every sentence. :lol:

Not really. A year and it's still the same storyline. ;)

Ahhh Passions. Never a dull moment. I miss it :awww:

:tape: We used to get Eastenders here in California on our local public station, and although I watched some of it to see if it was any worse better than US soaps, watching it was an exercise in extreme masochism. :scared:
EastEnders is one of my favourite programs. We get it on cable here and I'm actually watching it as I type this :p

I watch our Australian soaps Neighbours and Home and Away as well, but EastEnders is my favourite soap on TV.

Currently Luis is about to be executed and Sheridan is off trying to kill Theresa because Vincent told Sheridan that if she killed Theresa Luis wouldn't die :scratch:

That's what I don't get. Couldn't Sheridan turn Vincent in so she does't have to kill Theresa. And since Pretty is already back, Fancy won't marry Luis. So everything's solved. :scratch:
