TV Trash: Passions

Can’t really think of anything for a proper Throwback Thursday this week. So here’s Rowdy C celebrating his 200th TV Trash episode with a review of the supernatural soap opera Passions:

I never watched soap operas, though my mom and sister were both watched theirs religiously. Say what you want about how melodramatic these series are, but you have to admire how the writers for them are able to produce episode after episode on a daily basis all the while juggling a dozen or so plots through a somewhat coherent storyline.

Of course, if you’re the type to scoff and roll your eyes at a medium that relies heavily on multiple complex storylines and the development of individual characters within a vast and diverse cast, then I suspect that you’re also not a fan of anime or comic books, since they follow a similar premise minus all the cool action.
