Cheesy but great
14 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was really bad, but I totally love it none the less. It is an awesome 70's guilty pleasure show. The acting is nonexistent and the writing is horrible, but the episode with Rex Smith is classic and Jimmy McNichol's car is killer.

It is a fun watch if you can find it but it for most people it is not worth tracking down.

The other reviewer on this show was mistaken as Jimmy McNichol was not in Soap. That was Jimmy Baio. Lorenzo Lamas was in this but his horrific acting makes you wonder how he ever found work later on Falcon Crest. Morgan Brittany who was in two episodes later went on to have a great role in Dallas and was one of the few people in the show who seemed at all believable in her character and even that was a stretch.

Still, this show is priceless.
