Storyline

In the world of power and money, the wealthy and powerful Crane family rule the town of Harmony from their mansion on Raven Hill. But behind the money are many lies and secrets. Most of what the Cranes do affects the other core families: the working class Bennets, the Russells and the Lopez-Fitzgeralds. The wealthy Hotchkiss family cause's a lot of problems in Harmony. They are heavily involved with the much wealthier Crane family. And everyone must watch out for Tabitha Lenox, who is thought to be the crazy neighbor of the Bennets, but is actually a 300 year old with who plays god with everyones life. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Lindsay Hartley and Justin Hartley (Theresa and Fox) had a daughter in real life, they went on maternity leave from the show and were both temporarily replaced by Priscilla Garita and Nick Stabile as Theresa and Fox respectively. Both Priscilla Garita and Nick Stabile played opposite each other in the NBC soap Sunset Beach (1997). McKenzie Westmore also temporarily stepped out of her role as Sheridan Crane three times during the show's tenure, and was replaced twice by 'Sunset Beach''s actress Kam Heskin (who was a recast on that show as well). 'Passions' was notorious for recasting actors, and both Kay and Jessica were played by four different actresses each during the show's nine years. See more »

Silly enough to be fun(ny)
8 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show IS lame and addictive. And I can't believe so many people feel the same way...it makes me feel sane!

I suppose a majority of people started out watching this with enormous criticism. At first, one would think that: 1. The acting is rather over-done, 2. The dialogue is pretty pathetic, and 3. The storylines perhaps a little predictable and extremely slow (so slow in fact, that you could NOT watch Passions for about a month and still know what's going on).

Personally, I have never been into soaps before, but somehow Passions intrigued me the most. My initial reaction was one of confusion as the show is not your average soap opera. Oh no. Not only does it contain the ordinary conflicts, scheming, scandal and obsessions of certain characters, but it also includes elements of comedy and the supernatural.

Admittedly, Timmy was the main reason why I got interested, as I couldn't figure out whether he was a dwarf/midget or a little boy. As it turned out he was actually a doll, but either way, there was more to Passions than this strange aspect of fascination. Of course you could never leave out the Charity-Miguel-Kay or the Gwen-Ethan-Theresa love triangles. Here, we can witness the stupidity and naivety of Miguel and Ethan as they live their lives totally oblivious to the fact that they are being chased by crazed and obsessed girls who would do anything to win their loves.

Whatever the reason, it is understandable why Passions is not accepted by everyone, but if you give it a chance, at least enjoy it for the laugh factor. It might even keep you begging for more.
