    "All My Children" was the first soap I ever saw.
    The story I remember was a blonde lady being trapped in a well and her crazy sister pretending to be her. I think the crazy woman was named Janet. She married her sister's fiancé and got pregnant by him. She was a real nutjob -- like talking to her reflection in the mirror.

    My first Soap was All My Children and my mom was the one who got me hooked on it. She used to watch it all of the time and even bring a portable tv with her on my school trips.She stopped watching it and her other soaps around 10 years ago. I on the other hand try never to miss an episode.

    Oh you are talking about Natalie and Janet. The time when Janet came out of the hospital and tried to become her sister in order to get her sister's husband Trevor.

    I started out with AMC and GH. GH was when Robin & Scorpio were together and I think Sonny had a strip club!?
    AMC was when Ryan Lavery & Gillian were just getting together.. I still watch them both!

    In order for you to start watching GH at that time, you would know it was Robin & Stone not Robin & Scorpio. Robert Scorpio was her father. That would mean an incest storyline and GH has never done one of those.

    My first soap was One Life To Live in the late 70s, when Marco Dane was forcing Karen Wolek back into being a hooker. Man was that show good back then. Or at least I remember it as being great at the time. I wish SoapNet or some similar channel would show old soaps like that. I'd also love to see some other halcyon periods in other soaps, like the early 80s for General Hospital. I loved Luke & Laura as much as anybody, but my favorite was Rose and Joe Kelly. Anybody remember from back then, when Rose fell in love with Patch and was hiding him from mobsters in the pantry at Kelly's?

    My first soap was "Days of our Lives" back in 1998. I started watching it when they were dealing with the whole plot of Kristen/John/Marlena/Susan and the marriage of Susan and John, with Kristen and Marlena were locked in the secret room.

    After that, I was hooked until about 2001, then I got tired of recording it and just stopped watching altogether.

    After Christie Clark (Carrie Brady) and Austin Peck (Austin Reed) returned, I got back into watching it. Just not as religiously as I did before.

    My first soap i watched was Neighbours, my mum watches it, and i grew up on it, and still watch it today. Is my favourite soap and the only one i tape if im not in to watch it. Home and away was a second, but that was taken of air in England for about a year, so im so much into that now, but i keep up to date with the storyline.
