WHAT DO WE WANT FROM OUR SOAPS?

Posted by on Tuesday, October 26, 2010,
As written by GHH member, Rooanne

I'm wondering what it is most people want to see on a soap.   From reading just some recent comments [in our forum], for instance, there seem to be more or less two "camps";  those who want their soap to be an escape, such as out-there capers with the mob and the cops, and those who want to see more 'real life' type stories, such as illness in the hospital and couples who are not always in angst.

I like the idea of meta-awareness -- I guess you could say it wou...

Overall, I do not enjoy Epiphany.  It bugs me to no end how she orders doctors around.  Just ONCE, please, I want someone to put her in her place.  I thought she was terrible how she greeted Elizabeth.  That was completely unnecessary.

OLD HABITS DIE HARD--A STUDY OF GH'S SINGLETONS

I'm bothered...a lot...by the corresponding Lisa and Claire story lines.  These are semiotic stories, not based on character but on symbol, and they therefore scream some messages that I think we, as a community of women living in a post-feminist world, should be philosophically concerned with.  They are as follows:

  • Women who put all their attention on their career have made...
