What's this world coming to?

Fri Dec 23, 2005 9:20 pm

Just watching my favorite soap opera (on a major network) with my wife before I go to work, lo and behold, it's interrupted, not for the President, not for a major catastrophe, but for the latest New York Yankee signing, Johnny Damon, that's right, a baseball player switching teams. Unfrickinbelievable! What the phuck is going on? Has the media gone mad?

you have a favorite soap opera, huh?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

should i recommend the infamously bad mexican telenovelas to you? you might like them. the acting is so bad and hilarious. they give me a headache though.

btw, i hate those bad daytime soaps (like young & the restless/bold & the beautiful--my mom's favorites) with a fiery passion.

"com'on, it's telly time! passions is on! timmy fell down the bloody well and if you make me miss it, i'll..."
"you'll what? lick me to death?"

i had to say it.

Ok I can come out of the closet now...back in the 80's I used to watch Young and The Restless when they had the mafia on:

From Wikipedia-

"The Young and the Restless is also one of the few soaps to have successfully integrated a number of African American actors into its cast. In the mid-80's Y&R created a storyline which revolved around a young black man being made up in whiteface to bring down a mafia kingpin, but the characters were written out within a few years. "

I got intrigued when a friend was watching. I would tell her to let me know when the Mafia played their part. She taped it daily cause she was at work.

I believe one of the characters names was "Jazz". It may have been cheese, but I was into Revenge of the Ninja at the time and the hole Mob thing was something I was into at the time. I loved the guys hand being put into a pirranha tank.

I also admit to following the "Victor" character who ended up in Titanic. He was a mean SOB. His story with his wife would come off mildly entertaining. I actually watched when he met Nikki at a strip club. lol I remember distinctly the buildup. She was a hotty back then. lol

The problem is that after a few turns I get bored out of my skull. Soap operas are like alot of reality shows to me now. A waste of life!!!
