Thread: Poll: Why are soaps dying?

    Re: Poll: Why are soaps dying?

    I was watching an episode of Another World from 1980 on AOL and realized at the end of it that no one had shouted at anyone else. People had normal conversations with one another, even their enemies. Not every scene had to be an over-the-top over-acted confrontation.

    I stop watching all soaps when Another World went off the air, I have started back watching Days a few months ago...
    But I still miss AW and all the characters....
