    Dark Shadows. Started watching during the Quentin Collins storyline.


    Amen!! Same here!! I loved David Selby as Quentin the vampire!! That was an awesome show!! Then I really really got into Port Charles with similar format in early 2000's then they cancelled the show in 2003!!! Major mistake! Major bummer!!! I loved Michael Easton as Caleb Morley the vampire and his love interest Olivia Locke (played by Kelly Monaco).....awesome pairing!!!

    I started out Days of Our Lives when Bo & Hope gogt married. This was the mid 80's then. I got hooked on it becuz of my late bf wanted me to watch it when I was in the hospital with a pnumonia. I still love the show.

    I got hooked with "Passions" about 4 or 5 years ago but then I stopped watching it because it just kept going on with the same old story of who was in love with who and you probably could miss a week of it and not miss much.

    My first soap was All My Children. It was when I about four I started the show with my grandma and her friends. I really did not know what was going on but I watched anyway.  After my Grandma died I stopped but came back my freshman year of high school.

    General Hospital-

    I got hooked in late 2002 by the Dillion/Georgie/Sage love triangle storyline. I happened to tune in during one of their rare special episodes: the entire episode Dillion dreamed he and everyone were in a 1920s black-and-white silent movie about his love for Georgie and the lust from Sage.

    I later saw all the storylines with Sam, and after all that I was immediatly hooked.

    When I was 5 years old, my Mom watched "Guiding Light" religiously. So I watched it with her. I got hooked. I'm now 21 years old, and I still watch Guiding Light every day, and DVR it if I think I'm going to miss it. I love the show, even if it's last in the ratings, I still love it. 100% dedicated fan. I remember Lucy Cooper getting held captive in the Light House... I remember Reva's many deaths, and when she came back to town on Alan Spaulding's arm. It's just funny to see how all the characters have changed through the years.

    First soap for me was Knots Landing. It already ended when I started watching it. I just wish they'd bring it to SoapNet or to dvd.
