Storyline

The saga of the rich Forresters and the poor Logans is told against the backdrop of the fashion world in Los Angeles. Forrester Creations is the premiere fashion house in the city, thanks to the designing brilliance of Eric Forrester and the money and social grace of his wife, Stephanie Forrester. The ups and downs of their on-again, off-again marriage parallel the stormy lives of all their children, who have shared lovers and spouses with one another and even with their own father. Ridge Forrester is the arrogant oldest son (whose paternity will eventually be called into question); Thorne, the oft-neglected younger son; Kristen, the sweet but sexually-frigid older daughter; Felicia, the wild child. At the center of many of these storms is the Logan family. Beth Logan, the matriarch, has always carried a torch for Eric. Her three daughters include Brooke, the willful and sexually promiscuous oldest; Donna, the ditsy model; and Katie, who has always felt overshadowed by her more ... Written by J. Spurlin

The glitz is gone
3 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Boring, worn-out story lines of ultimately unlikeable characters have become the trademark of this once glitzy and entertaining soap opera.

Essentially it's an endlessly repeated love triangle now 15 years running with Brooke, Ridge, Taylor - recycled story lines and people coming back from the dead.

The current crop of writers has also found a way of making every good character go bad to the point where there's no one to cheer for - no one to admire - no one to even like.

Most despicable character is Brooke Logan - the nympho-manical social climber who sleeps with her daughter's husbands and goes through men like so much Kleenex. 4 children by 3 men. This stuff is really depraved.

This half hour mess is distributed throughout the world and what a distorted and horrible picture it paints of American families.

Save your time and avoid this addictive tripe.
