Classic Soap Fan
For the second year in a row, we've voted SANTA BARBARA as funniest daytime soap. The reason is simple: the writers pack a wallop of humor in their scripts. The other shows emphasize serious drama and action/adventure but offer few laughs. SB puts the accent on fun and the result is an outrageously delicious soap. Characters have a wit and sparkle that make them appealing (just listen to characters like Mason, for example, and you'll see what we mean). While the show has had its share of pointless plots and uncharismatic couplings, a lack of humor has never been one of its problems. SB has some of the funniest moments on daytime -- which is important. All too often, soaps come off as extremely melodramatic. SB has learned that a little humor goes a long way.
