12 Soap Opera Storylines Fans Are Totally Sick Of
With some of the soap opera shows currently on the air for over five decades, daytime dramas have two major challenges, one being to create compelling content that will bring in new and younger viewers and another is to develop storylines that older fans haven’t seen before. This can be a struggle as long-time soap fans have seen it all before. Therefore, below are 12 soap opera storylines fans are totally sick of.
12. GH’s Cassadine Curse
When General Hospital’s (GH) Luke and Laura got married in 1981, Helena Cassadine cursed the couple, launching a feud that lasted decades. A slew of Cassadines have died over the years only to return to Port Charles to continue the curse and rivalry with the Spencers, including Helena herself, her son Stavros, and now Valentin. With the entire Jason/Drew storyline moving forward, and Helena’s name mentioned on the show multiple times, fans can’t help but speculate if she’ll return from the dead? Many fans hope not simply because they are tired of the curse and rivalry and just want it to go away.
11. Y&R’s Annoying Couples
There are some Young and the Restless (Y&R) fans who love seeing Billy and Phyllis, Devon and Hilary, and Cane and Lily together; however, there are those who find these duos utterly annoying. While Cane and Lily’s reunion makes sense, some find it unrealistic how sappy these parents of teenagers have become. Others feel that Philly lack substance. When it comes to Hevon, many Y&R fans wish these two would go their separate ways and take a chance on love somewhere else cause Hilary is too unstable for Devon!
