A classic soap opera!
16 July 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Ah, yes. I can remember when I was in high school. The first thing I would do my junior and senior year when I was home from school was watch this classic soap opera. From that moment on, I was hooked on it. In addition, I also enjoyed the days when Victoria (Heather Tom) was on the show. Ever since Malcolm (Shemar Moore) left the show in 2001, I haven't been watching it as much. If you ask me, she was absolutely diabolical. You'd have to have seen the show between 1994 and 2001 if you want to know why. However, this is still a good soap opera. In conclusion, I highly recommend this classic soap opera to all you die-hard CBS fans.
