Great Soap
6 July 2004 | by notstorebought23See all my reviews

Even though this show is not as wonderful and perfect as it use to be it is still a great show. The actors and actresses have great talent and show it really well. I'd refer this show to anyone who wants to watch some good drama. It has the forever famous Erica Kane and her countless marriages which are sure to entertain. The ups and downs of the relationships of the citizens of Pine Valley. The Characters draw you in and the situations keep your eyes on that screen. This show has won many emmys and there are reasons for it. I really enjoy this soap and I hope that others viewers can learn to enjoy it as well. Like I said before if you want to see some great stories and great talents you should definitely tune into this soap!
