Gosh, this is a fun and addictive show. It reminds me of a daytime soap, back when the daytime soaps were good. The writers had to have been consciously channelling Another World's early Rachel Davis and All My Children's early Erica Kane when creating the character of Candace, played with gleeful venom by Tika Sumpter. She's a fabulous character, as is her rival, Catherine. Candace happens to be sleeping with Catherine's husband. She's also pals with Catherine's boring, simpleton daughter and unbeknownst to Catherine--she's the daughter of Catherine's maid (and new best friend), Hana. The class warfare stuff is great and is how I imagine early One Life to Live might have been.
