YMMV / Soap

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Chuck and Bob. Originally, the writers intended for Chuck to be Peter's murderer. But as season one progressed, Chuck and Bob became so popular the producers realized they couldn't write them off the show, so they changed the identity of the murderer to Chester.
  • Informed Attractiveness: While Jessica Tate was by no means difficult on the eyes (and her personality and red hair certainly didn't hurt), the way the show set her up as being simply irresistible to virtually any man who crossed her path was a little over the top.
  • The Scrappy: It's pretty easy to see why Carol is so hated by the fandom. It's made even worse by the fact that women like her are, obviously, Truth in Television.
    • El Puerco doesn't have a lot of fans, either, given his unpopular storyline and how many feel he made the show Jump the Shark.
  • The Woobie: Jodie, oh so much.
    • Jessica many times, but especially after she was convicted of Peter's murder and when she thought Chester was dead.
    • Mary.
