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.

A shell of its former self
22 December 2003 | by Ocean_BreezeSee all my reviews

I first discovered this show back in the winter of 1999, and with the first storyline I watched being with the whole Morgan DeWitt thing, I was immediately pulled in. I, of course, watched it whenever I could (I didn't get out of school until 2:30 back then) and viewed many interesting storylines (Amber taking Becky's baby, Becky's terminal illness, Macy's "death", Bridget marrying Deacon, he getting Brooke pregnant, the aforementioned Taylor/Ridge/Morgan storyline, and so on.) But when Brooke started to pursue Ridge on a regular basis, Taylor's death and the untimely return(s) of Sheila (as well as other unneeded plots) just annoys and sickens me to the point where I can't watch this like I did in high school. The writers have certainly lost something in the magic of their writing, at least with me, and I'm truly sorry to hear that, not even the great talent of Jack Wagner on board, who shook things up on my beloved Melrose Place, can save this soon to be train wreck of a soap opera. *Sighs* And it had all the potential, too...
