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

Trivia

Art imitating life: The Forrester Mansion as seen on TV was modeled after the real life mansion of series creators William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell (once owned by Howard Hughes) whereas the estate of their son Bradley Bell served as the model for the house of Brooke Logan. The backdrop shots of two other sets belong to houses owned by the Bell dynasty, though the belonging sets used on the show share no similarities with reality: The house of William J. Bell Jr. and his wife 'Maria Arena Bell' serves as the Bel Air Mansion of Ridge and Taylor Forrester, actress Lauralee Bell calls the Marone Mansion home in real life. See more »

Quotes

Bill Spencer: I am not unaware of your charm and your reputation.
Ridge: Oh, reputation?
Bill Spencer: How you use women. How you love them, and leave them.
Ridge: Now where did you hear that?
Bill Spencer: I know that my daughter can quite easily become infatuated with you, and just as easily end up as one of your discarded conquests. But Caroline is my only daughter, my only child and I desperatley want for her happiness. And I would do everything in power to see to it that she does not get hurt.

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...
