TV Shows - Soap

Soap is an American sitcom that originally ran on ABC from 1977 to 1981. The show was created as a parody of daytime soap operas, presented as a weekly half-hour long primetime comedy. Like a soap opera, the show's story was presented in a serial format and included melodramatic plot elements such as amnesia, alien abduction, demonic possession, murder, and kidnapping.

1 Boned day one! I purchased the Mill Creek DVD release of the lot of it, and when I saw one or two episodes, I instantly regretted it. -- Submitted By: (bmasters1981) on November 24, 2016, 3:30 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 One of the most innovative, provocative and entertaining sitcoms ever created. The show was way ahead of its time with utilizing satire and pushing the envelope of censorship with certain characters and story lines. The show was ground breaking in many ways. The quality slowly eroded when characters left and the writers wrote some bizarre story lines, but even today, it stands as one of the most unique sitcoms in history. It's really too bad ABC went from greatness like this to the sitcom cheese it created in the 80s-90s. At least they found their creativity again with Modern Family. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 24, 2013, 10:33 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The funniest scripted show I have ever seen. Think about Richard Mulligan's actions when he thought he was becoming invisible. Just an example of a show so funny that a single memory is funnier than half the existing shows out there. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:08 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

6 I don't think it ever really jumped, but it did come darned close that last year. I didn't care for the El Puerco storyline and if it had been renewed for another season they would have definitely had to wrap that one up quickly. -- Submitted By: (BaronCathode) on December 26, 2009, 4:29 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I was too young to watch Soap in first run when it originally appeared (although I had certainly heard of it), and the closest that I got was watching the opening titles, which were pretty funny all by themselves. I got into this series years later, when purely by chance, I tuned into the first episode as it started a syndication run. (At the time, I didn't know it was the first episode). I wasn't used to television with continuing story lines, and by the end of that first half hour (and the shows amazing range of loopy, yet sympathetic characters), I was hooked. Personally, I think the first season and the beginning of the second of Soap is a great piece of television. In watching it, there's no doubt whatsoever that you're watching something from the seventies, and the way that Billy Crystal's character was handled is a bit hard to watch today. Despite this, it's still vastly entertaining, and always leaves you wanting more. The series gradually eroded as members of the original cast left: the most notable departures being Diane Canova (Corinne: I had the hots for her in a big way) and Robert Guillaume (Benson). The new characters brought in to replace them just weren't the same. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 7:38 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
