It’s amazing how popular soaps were in the early to mid ‘80s. I remember Days of Our Lives used to do elaborate summer storylines involving travel to exotic locations and good TV special effects for the time. I never thought about how much they must’ve been raking in to justify the expense of all that. That stopped 30 years ago and now it’s a genre that’s almost completely dead. They’ve all been canceled except maybe 2 of them and I can’t imagine those will survive much longer. Weird to see an entire genre of TV disappear.
