I figured we needed a thread to discuss the daytime soap operas more freely. My first experience with daytime soaps was The Young and the Restless, which I use to watch with my mother everyday. My memory is a little hazy, but I recall the story primarily revolving around Lily and this guy spending a lot of time on the beach. Maybe it had something to do with Lily disappearing, and didn't she suddenly reappear being played by a different actress? No shock there. That's typical of these daytime dramas. Now that I'm working at the bank during the day, I don't ever get to watch those few soaps still airing every weekday. Back when my maternal grandmother was still living, I briefly got back into The Bold and the Beautiful, and I even recorded it for a couple of weeks. It starting cluttering the DVR and I deleted the timer. I bought this Soap Opera History book like four years ago, and I really l like it. I've been looking at it a lot here lately. I wish there was a updated edition of this book, and it could include newer soaps in it.
