I was ten or eleven around the time it was on SciFi.
I remembered being like, "Woah, it's like that crap my family watches BUT we have vampires and werewolves!"
I thought it got kind of stupid towards the end because they were just basically doing the same things in a 'parallel universe'.
Dark Shadows did well to end its run after that since as far as I am concerned, other soaps do the same thing to an even worse degree- w/o the parallel universe.
My mom, sister, and grandma all love "All My Children". The thing that annoys me is that people will be holding the same conversation for three or four weeks! It's so slow... blah! It's kind of humorous to watch them make the absolute opposite decisions of what I would make- must be a group of ESFJ's- jk..
If I want to watch a bunch of skanks fight for men- I watch VH1. It's more entertaining and the skanks don't let the bullshit get to them- they fight it out.
TV Soaps gives you a point for F, I believe, since it means you're empathic towards others.
