i'm so addicted to this show, i keep expecting the police to bust me in a sting.
i don't see the show as a soap opera but a lot of you reading do.
that's fine. i love soap operas, daytime and night time. i loved 'dynasty' and have written about that. i loved, loved, loved! 'knot's landing.' i honestly think that was my favorite soap opera. i really stopped watching 'dynasty' after pamela sue martin left. actually, i stayed a bit thinking she would come back and also because they'd just added ali macgraw as lady ashley; however, when fallon was recast - with emma samms - i was out the door.
i loved fallon and felt she was the heart of that show. she lies for her father to save him from prison (where blake belonged for killing ted denard). and she learns to actually love krystal. but you really can tell the season by pamela sue martin's fallon.
that show had a great cast. 'dynasty' had the women and that was it - but they were great actresses.
'knot's landing' had kevin dobson as mac and that alone was worth it. but ted shakleford was also good as gary.
i love julie harris as lilliemae. but my favorites were karen (michelle lee), abby (donna mills) and val (joan van ark).
i could've just watched them for hours and hours.
and then michelle phillips joined the cast as anne (paige's mom). I just loved anne.
i loved how she was always scrambling.
abby was devious and usually came out on top. anne mathews was forever losing.
and michelle played her perfectly. sweet and nice with mac and tough as nails with karen.
anyway, i don't see 'revenge' as a soap opera because, to me, it's more serial and episodic than soap opera-ish.
i really think it's the most addictive show on tv.
and i don't know how i will handle a summer with no new episodes. :(
if you wrote about 'revenge' and i saw the e-mail, i tried to work it in to this entry.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
