From multiple articles, blogs, and books I have read, authors generally agree that the soap opera genre was all but dead by the early 1990s. However, at the same time, they all agree that Fox's teen-aged/young adult-aimed night time dramas revived the "soap" genre. I've heard it explained like this... Comparing each 1990s soap to their 1980s counterpart. Beverly Hills, 90210 --- Dallas Melrose Place --- Dynasty Party of Five --- Knots Landing Models, Inc. --- The Colbys I couldn't exactly say if these comparisons are accurate, but it's simply what I've read. Could someone perhaps elaborate on this... Agree or disagree?
