Did you hear that? That was my scream cry heard 'round the world the day I found out that my beloved soap operas One Life to Live and All My Children were coming back to life. Everything I have ever learned about life was acquired by my soap opera pathos.
We fans know soap operas are cheesy. It's not some big secret. I spend half my time laughing at the show and the other half crying with the storylines. We love it because of the drama, the absurdity, and the tacky nuance that are tropes of this genre.
