I have a question for all of you—What is the appeal of Soap Operas?
I get the drama, the sex, the gorgeous men, and the maids, but the plot takes so long to unfold. I’m a fan of building tension. But I’m also exceptionally impatient, so the slow build has its limits.
I haven’t watched a Soap in years. My sister convinced me to watch Passions with her (horrible show). We got SO into it, but not in the normal way. We watched to see how drawn out they could make it. If I remember right it took over a week to get through one day on the show (we judged time by the clothing).
So tell me do you love or hate Soaps? Which ones do you watch? Do they move to slow for you?
After thought—I’m a fan of teen versions of the Soap, like Vampire Diaries and Smallville. They seem to move fasters, but maybe I’m wrong.
