Soap storylines everyone hated - except you (or stories everyone loved and you hated)

I'll start. Everyone derides the Natalie/Jessica baby switch on OLTL but I loved it {but only as it was originally presented - that Nat was Viki's daughter and Jessica wasn't). I thought it was a great way to use history without retconning and also gave Viki a great story.

I loved Marge the impostor on Y&R. Bill Bell could drag out ordering dinner at The Allegro for three years, but he ended that one in about three days.

"MAH BAYBEEZ!!!" - Val on Knots Landing, after her twins were kidnapped. It was good at first but went on way too long.

I still hate Sam as Alexis’s daughter on GH. It was really contrived and clearly just a means for Brian Frons to keep Kelly Monaco on the show after flopping. IIRC, they never even did a DNA test. It was proven by a yearbook photo? Alexis as a teen mom — and especially pregnant by Julian Jerome! — never made sense.

by Anonymousreply 3August 6, 2021 10:32 PM

Daytime: GH - Katherine Bell and Damian (hot piece of ass Leigh McCloskey) conning Scotty. I remember the soap rags printed some vitriolic letters regarding that storyline.

Primetime: Dynasty - Alexis and Blake battling over his South China Sea oil leases. In Dynasty threads on DL, people have complained this storyline was deathly boring and dragged, but I thought it was hilarious how Alexis would one-up Blake at every single turn.

Y&R: Everyone seems to universally hate the Clear Springs storyline, but LML's tenure was the last era of the show I can remember that I couldn't miss a day.

The Leviathan storyline on Dark Shadows. It is very weird even by Dark Shadows standards, but I like it.

I agree that Val's stolen babies storyline on Knots was too drawn out. Half of it was filler and keeping Val off in Shula. The Gary/Val/Abby triangle, the way that it played out over almost five years and100 episodes, was one of the best soap storylines, for my money.

On Days, I liked the Hattie storyline with another Marlena look-similar, a frumpy oddball waitress played by Dee Dee Halls' twin sister. Stefano was giving her plastic surgery to look more and more like Marlena, Rolf was teaching Hattie how to pass, and Hattie was hot for Josh Taylor Roman. I enjoyed it but it didn't seem very popular and I believe was dropped when Joe Mascolo left in 2001. They went there later, but I'd quit watching.

And I love the dream season of Dallas. I loved that the women were front and center.

It was amusing to see a woman (Angelica Nero) get the upper hand with J.R.

OP - I agree with you. But I think they made a mistake giving Jessica DID, (split personality). With all the childhood trauma Natalie went through, it would have made a lot more sense for her to have had it. It could also have explained why she was so nasty and evil when first coming to Llanview, and would have bonded her to Viki. They could have done so much more with that storyline, but took the coward's way out.

On "One Life To Live" Karen Wolek's sister Jenny gives birth to a baby that dies. The former hooker Katrina is also having a baby, which it seems she'll give up for adoption. Her baby survives. Karen and Marco (who is pretending to be his identical brother Mario, a doctor) switch babies, making it seem like Katrina's had died and Jenny's had lived. It was Karen's idea. I thought it was a truly repugnant storyline. Karen and Marco behaved like sociopaths. As I recall that storyline (will the truth about the Jenny/Katrina baby ever come out?) went on FOREVER. I never did find out how it was resolved, if it ever was resolved.

by Anonymousreply 43September 28, 2021 5:20 AM

Yeah, r42, the Mamie and John story being dropped was another head-scratcher. They really just dropped that story quickly. Jill offering Mamie money and then she took off? I didn't buy that.

I guess they got more racist mail for that, but I can't see why viewers would hate John with Mamie? It made sense. The Abbott kids loved her.

I really liked Karen Witter's recast as Tina. No, she wasn't Andrea Evans, but she had a real warmth to her that they kind of steered into for a while. And at least she wasn't goddamn Krista Tesreau.

And while I eventually loved Kassie DePaiva before all others, I remember not being crazy about her at first. And let's face it, if they tried to recast an Asian character with a white actress in 2022, they'd get the network burned down, and probably rightfully so.

I think part of the problem with John and Mamie (outside of race) was it didn't develop. It was just whomp - John and Mamie were in love. Yeah, they'd been in the same house for the last forty years but there'd been no real depth or nuance to the relationship. I just don't think the storyline between the boss and the housekeeper rang true. Plus, focus group of one, but I found the actress playing Mamie at the time so seldom played any warmth in her. Original Mamie was kindly and very sweet. It was hard to root for Mamie2.0. Finally, it was hard to take John Abbott's relationships seriously. He got married every other week. Mamie would have been his fourteenth wife and definitely not the last.

Craig and Nancy‘a original pairing as schemers , get that Chief of Staff Job from Mike Horton, on Days of Our Lives

They always had stupid lines, obviously aimed at the fat fraus in the audience, from Craig about how sexy and beautiful his overweight wife Nancy was, it was excruciating

The fall 1995 batch of teens on AMC, they didn’t last long, Laura Kirk was the most annoying and badly acted of them all, stomping around Pine Valley with her Joan Osborne hair, and lecturing everyone, she was a pre SJW character, especially when it came to the gay teacher storyline, Laura was hip and down with gay people and was against bigotry and homophobia! And yet it became all about her! I usually avoid drama fueled SJW type straight women like that like the plague in real life

The shrink, whom played Karen’s brother on Knots Landing, who brainwashed Viki to kill Kevin on OLTL, horrible, even Erika Slezak hated it

Valerie being revealed to be a murderer on BH 90210, she had killed her molesting rapist father in self defense years prior, was also dumb and a retcon of history, it was clearly stated that he died from suicide for years with Valerie flashing back to him shooting himself, so she had flashbacks to something that never happened?

Lit-ra-ly am the only living person who wanted a Ben Mitchell/Johnny Carter endgame on EASTENDERS.

The couple was on the cards and seeded and kept humming in the background for years (2014-17), and in the end nothing much substantial came of it beyond one drunk FWB birthday hookup and a sad platonic cuddle in an alleyway. They ended up parting as friends, and not even tearfully as besties either. For a landmark Millennial gay couple, they really fizzled out and sadly ended up a pointless footnote.

Also wanted Ben’s proper boyfriend/fiancée Paul to stay alive and thrive on the show (instead of getting brutally killed offscreen in a homophobic way😞), but that’s a popular opinion.

Few remember this old storyline on AMC. Sage advice giver Myrtle (the Boutique owner who was in her 70's at the time), started dating an elderly gentleman who had lost the Christmas Spirt. He moved into her boarding house for a few weeks and she cheered him up and made him happy again. Turns out he was SANTA CLAUS and Myrtle saved Christmas. I hate most Christmas movies, but she was a great actress, so it was fun.

Wait? Did he cheat on Mrs. Claus? I never thought about that before.

by Anonymousreply 95March 13, 2022 8:37 PM

I actually did not mind the Mrytle dating Santa story either. It gave Mrytle something to do besides being a talk-to to Erica or whoever was staying at the boarding house. and was clearly just meant to be a fun holiday story line. The actress was pretty frail at the end (years after this story) but she never lost her ability to act. Sometimes the older actors lost something and ended up just flatly delivering lines once a certain age, but she was good until the end. Speaking of twins and dopplegangers, I believe the actress had a quick scene as Mrs. Claus coming to chew her out for flirting with her husband.

It was a nice change after the overuse of the Dillon Christmas angel that was trotted out about ten years in a row, although I always like a Kate Collins return. Certainly a lot better when a few years later when they had a creepy Santa show up in random places implying there would be a Christmas miracle and it ended up being something like Tad and Dixie's child's adoptive parents being killed in an accident to clear an obstacle from Tad getting his daughter back.

I fucking hated AMC and its UGLY look (something from 1994 came to my "check out list" on Youtube- and my god that show was cheap and ugly. I don't know how people loved it so much as it looked so utterly ugly. Especially in the early to mid 90's.

HOWEVER- it was my grandparents show, as well as my mom's.

Myrtle and Phoebe RULE. That show had some kind of human comfort level attached to it- It felt like a warm blanket- and a big part of that was Myrtle, Phoebe, and Mona. As a little boy I loved those old ladies! Bad lighting and cheap sets and all. They were awesome.

And I agree with poster above about Tina's return to OLTL in 1985. OLTL from 85-87 under Rauch and Peggy O'Shea was probably the most underrated awesome soap opera of all time.

I would spend a month every summer at my grandparents and would suffer through AMC (other than those old ladies above) and just count the seconds until OLTL and its cool background music and Mitch's cult and Tina and Maria and Viki... Great memories.

Pretty much any Reva story after her first stint on the show.

Aside from the triangle with Josh/Annie, some of the scenes with Jonathan, and her yanking the plug on Richard, the stories were a mess.

Cloning, time travel through a painting, Reva forgets she was the queen of another country, Amish Reva....the list is long.
