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.

At the center of many of these storms is the Logan family. Beth Logan, the matriarch, has always carried a torch for Eric.

Best soap on TV
15 May 2004 | by mgl_3See all my reviews

I love "Bold and the Beautiful" !! I have been watching the show every day and I tape it when I am not home. It is part of my life. I have watched soaps for years and this one is the best. There isn't a character I don't like. I love Brooke and Deacon (We have 2 Beagles named after them) Samantha,Hector,and Caitlin are my newest favorites.I must say that I liked Amber better as a blonde. I really enjoy the show and hope it is on the air forever. Stephanie and Eric are 2 wonderful people. I just can't say enough about this soap. Jackie (who played Madeline on North and South with Patrick Swayze) is a very talented woman. Glad Masamo (who played Stephano on Days of our Lives) came to B&B. I love Pricilla (Sue Ellen on "DALLAS") She is talented and as beautiful as ever !!!
