Special effects on soaps never look realistic. I can't remember the last time I felt something was done very well with special effects on soaps.
I don't know if you would call this a "special effect," but I was watching a little bit of GH earlier this week and had to laugh at some of their fire scenes. They showed Patrick and some other guy (Jason?) with hoses or fire extinguishers or something, trying to battle a fire. The problem? There wasn't any fire to battle! LoL

It wasn't until the end of the scene that the fire machines actually started working and shooting flames up, but that was after several seconds of the actors looking ridiculously stupid as they tried to battle a blaze that wasn't even there.

It's a sad day when even stunt-soap GH has gone this far downhill. Their big events are usually worth at least a little something -- not this time.
I saw that. As I said, GH is very hit or miss with special effects. They've done good and bad IMO.

See, for me, I could care less. I don't watch soaps for that. It's about the story for me. What happens to people as a result of the event, accident, etc is more important. I don't expect soaps to be on par with blockbuster films with special effects. It's about the stories and characters, hence why I could care less that an explosion looks like shit or that there is no fire to battle. It's annoying but my mind usually is elsewhere anyway since it's focused on the story and characters.
