Introduction:Daytime television wouldn't be the same without the soaps. "My shows," as they are sometimes called, has given television viewers some of the best characters ever seen.
This Aussie hunk turned daytime television on it's ear. Gloria Monty hit a home run when she added Robert Scorpio to the mix. This spy turned police commissioner was the reason to watch "General Hospital" for years.
Who hasn't heard the name Erica Kane? Good girl? Bad girl? Does it really matter? We either love her or love to hate her. "All My Children" would not be the same without this petite bundle of dynamite.
Big brown eyes and a sweet face, this con artist turned wife enthralled "General Hospital" viewers from the start. Love interest of Luke Spencer and, later, the wife of his best friend Robert, Holly charmed everyone she came in contact with in Port Charles.
This simple country girl was almost too good to be true. "All My Children" didn't have a good girl that wasn't too sickening sweet until Dixie showed up at her Uncle Palmer's door. Through the years, she has proven she deserves the honor of being Pine Valley's resident angel.
Get in the way back machine and remember "One Life To Live" in the seventies. Karen was the former hooker turned doctor's wife that could hob knob with the Lord and the Buchanan families. What made Karen such a great character? No one ever cried as well as she did, then or now.
We invite these characters into our homes. We listen to their problems. We share in their joys. We grow attached to them as time goes by. Our lives wouldn't be the same without them.
Robert and Holly Scorpio were the best! They were perfect for each other.
Robert and Holly Scorpio were favorites on mine!
Haven't watched soaps in many years but I remember Erica from when both she and I were young! Good list!
Used to be a major AMC fan -- gotta love to hate La Kane! Congrats on the front page feature!
I stopped watching them 30 years ago, but I believe you. :)
