I've been wondering, do people even watch soap operas anymore?

  • Good question. I tried to watch my old favorite, "General Hospital", the other day. It was good to see a lot of the same faces but the dialogue goes so dang slow to me now. IDK why. And the commercials! You barely make it through one scene and the scene takes forever and boom, another commercial. Its weird when you havent watched a soap in awhile to go back and try to view it again. I suppose if I used some patience I could get back into it, but there is so much else on tv to watch now with cable and all...

  • I used to be so into Days of our Lives, but then I moved overseas for three years and was completely lost when I came back.

  • I do out of loyalty! lol I grew up watching Days of Our Lives. My mother was a single mom working and going to school full time. She would record (on VHS) all the episodes for the week and on the weekend we would sit down and watch was our thing. Now I DVR them and skim through them just to keep in the loop. It is like getting rid of your comfy pillow or blanket, I just can't do it! lol

  • NO...............ok so MAYBE I MIGHT record All My Children and watch the scenes I can stand. Then get sick of it for months at a time then go back and catch up (yeah it takes like a week to completely catch up since they all move so slow). I mean if I did really watch it, its not like I would ever admit to it or anything.

  • I know a few who do. Im not hooked on them like I used to be. I was once a serious Y&R fan

  • I use to be a huge Days fan but the storyline's were always the same or someone would die only to come back to life blah...
