As a kid, I didn’t much like soap operas, or daytime dramas, as they are officially called. In fact, they ruined the word drama for me, as it ways synonymous with soap opera in my mind.
Thank goodness my Mom didn’t watch soap operas, but I was rather unhappy that during the summer when I was home, this was the only thing on TV. Of course, this was in the days before cable. I wondered how anybody could watch such stuff.
It turns out that women can watch it rather easily. It provides them with people, and their interactions and relationships. For the ladies, what is not to like? They must keep track of who is doing what to who and how it all affects their relative standing in the village. I suppose that this is just what they do. Perhaps I should just embrace it all.
Modern women, those following the feminist script of careers, maybe kids, pushing for more, more, more, have enough drama in their lives I do think. Do they need more? Do they need soap operas?
What is your answer?
