Trivia

I usually hate daytime soap operas
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find them too slow with lousy acting and silly story lines. I only started watching this cause my roommate does and he told me the guys are VERY attractive. He's right. Some of the men here (especially Billy and Cane) are drop dead gorgeous but also it isn't bad for a soap. Sure, some of the story lines drag but, for the most part, this moves fairly quickly. Yes, some of the actors are bad but no one is terrible and some of them are actually VERY good. It's also easy to pick up--it took me about a week or so to (somewhat) figure out the story lines. That's another thing--this has multiple story lines going on at once and you're never really bored. Also the production values here are excellent. There are beautiful, impressive sets in virtually every episode. I started watching about a month ago and I have to admit I'm hooked! A very good, well-done soap.
