Added DiffLines:

** Julian and Ivy get this. After a decades-long loveless marriage that they were forced into by their parents, they actually reconcile for a while when they get fed up with Sam and Eve, realizing that they accept each other despite, or perhaps ''because'' of their numerous faults.


Added DiffLines:

* BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama: Why Julian and Eve couldn't be together in their younger days.

The show opened as a fairly innocuous daytime soap, albeit with elements of [[LovecraftCountry witchcraft and the paranormal]]. What drove the show completely off the rails wasn't that it was cheesy, but that it became a self-parody almost within a month of its premiere. An episode of ''Passions'' makes the cheapest telanovela look like ''Series/TheWire''. The "villains" belonged in a Silver Age comic book. The town's ruling dynasty was comprised of [[UpperClassTwit inbred idiots]]. A transgender [[TwoFaced Two-Face]] stalked Harmony for victims to rape/blackmail (since he/she couldn't decide on which stock daytime villain to be and decided to try both). Zombies, the Devil, and dwarves ran amok. Characters popped over to [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Magical Land of Oz]] for an afternoon... And, in one seriously memorable arc, a faked death involving [[ComplexityAddiction some serious stealth work]]. The shift in tone can be narrowed down to the witch Tabitha and her ambulatory doll Timmy [[EnsembleDarkhorse stealing the show away]] from the 'main' cast. Not that anyone complained.

The show follows the lives of several families in the town of Harmony: The rich Crane family, headed by the eeeeevil Alistair Crane (literally just [[DiabolicalMastermind a hand holding a cigar]] in the early episodes; later evolved into Robert Vaughn from ''Film/SupermanIII''); the Lopez-Fitzgeralds, many of whom fell in love with Crane family members; the Bennetts, who were connected to the Cranes through Alistair's grandson Ethan; the Russells, who have got to be one of the oddest BrotherSisterIncest stories on record; the Winthrops, who get involved in an impressive romantic three-way plot; the Hotchkiss family (involved with the Winthrops); and at least one member of the Standish family (related to the Bennetts).

* ActingForTwo: Dana Sparks portrays both Grace and Faith Standish. They are identical twins.



* ChannelHop: Given its' already strange status, it's no surprise that it also had a very weird network switch; specifically, the show moved from Creator/{{NBC}} to [=DirecTV=] and it's exclusive channel, The 101 (currently known as Audience Network). However, NBC continued to make the show, and [=DirecTV=] declined to renew the show after one season.



* PortmanteauCoupleName: ET or Therethan (Ethan/Theresa), Shuis (Sheridan/Luis), Charguel (Charity/Miguel), Chadney (Chad/Whitney), Gram (Grace/Sam), Savy (Sam/Ivy), Juvy (Julian/Ivy), Evian (Eve/Julian), Therox (Theresa/Fox), Gwank (Gwen/Hank, but although they were never a couple, [[FanPreferredCouple fans liked the idea of the two together]]).
