    No, its an escape from reality, they'd be really boring if they just followed peoples lives, you'd probably get a good scandel once every few years and the rest of the time it would be about the characters going to work and doing their shopping.

    I think as most soaps have been running for a while now it becomes more and more difficult not to repeat the same story, and the competition between soaps for the best storylines keeps making the writers come up with more and more radical ideas to keep the viewers interested.

    Oh, and a lot of the far-fetched storylines are just comedy anyway! And we all need a bit of comedy after a long day!

    I agree! The only reason i watch them is because they are so unrealistic, they'd just be dull otherwise.

    there aren't really. somethings that were in some episodes, dissappear in others. e.g the swimming pool and the tennis court.

    No, I don't think it is. The Simpsons doesn't evolve, and that in my opinion is the main ingrediant for a soap.

    I think so, because they are supposed to be like real life!
