Kay Bennett, worst teen? Hardly... Especially with a brilliant Taylor Anne Mountz in a role.

I quit watching DOOL because of that storyline. Complete and utter crap. Not even the actress knew who the heck she was supposed to be (according to an interview she did) how the hell were the viewers supposed to know? And since the rest of the show wasn't all that great...I just gave up.

:lol: That's what got me watching DOOL on my own was the Princess Gina storyline. I totally loved it. Before that I only watched during the summer when my babysitter put it on.


And I agree, Kay could hardly have been the worst teen. Taylor Anne Mountz was great. The rest of the Kay's were questionable, but she was awesome.

Anyone who paid attention to the story knew who she was supposed to be.

That whole Princess DI SL really turned me off, especially with the accident still fresh in our minds.

But I loved TAM in the role of Kay.

I remember my mom and grandma hating those whole Sheridan/Di promos and thinking Passions was a joke. My grandma ended up watching the show which I found funny since she hated the whole supernatural stuff on DAYS in the 90's.

WOW. This list brings back alot of memories. I think I was watching all of the soaps at that time.

The Princess Gina s/l didn't bother me maybe it had to do with the fact that I was in elementary school and didn't care. Though I hated it lasted so long.

The Princess Diana s/l was very strange to me but I loved Passions right away. :lol: I liked the fact that the soap had so many on location scenes in the early days.

Kay was definitely not the worst teenager. Charity was by far the most annoying and worst. I always loved and rooted for Kay. Billy Abbott was definitely the best teenager. Actually Dawson Leery might have been the worst teenager. Pacey and Joey were so much love.

That Felicity cliffhanger was great. Sonny/Carly sleeping together did shock me.

Agreed on everything! :D

Kay was so awesome and Charity was SO LAME! I never like Molly Stanton as the goody Charity. She was much more fun when she played Zombie Charity. Billy Abbott as played by David Tom as AMAZING! Loved him! And Dawson Leary was horribly boring and annoying. Pacey and Joey were so much love! :D

I only liked Charity when she was evil. Miguel/Charity were painful. Dawson Leary was boring and whiny. Those Dawson tears always crack me up.

David Tom was amazing!

1999 brings back a lot of memories for me.

The Princess Gina storyline was definitely confusing then in 1999 and 13 years later it still is confusing. I'm not sure why they brought the character back. Glad it's over...hopefully we won't see a return of PG and The Pawn. Hopefully they'll bring back Greta and solve the mystery of her paternity.

Agree with SOD on best quadrangle. To date, Sami/Austin/Carrie/Mike storyline is still my favourite soap quadrangle. I miss the Days was Sami was scheming to get Austin and Carrie was torn between Austin and Mike. Today, I find Sami really boring and Carrie seems to made her mind up about Rafe. I miss the old Days...

I'd have to disagree with SOD on the Worst Quadrangle. I thought the Ned/Alexis/Jax/Chloe storyline was hilarious and brought out the comedic side in Wally Kurth, Nancy Lee Grahn, Ingo Rademacher and Tava Smiley - but that's just me.

I remember hating Kay on Passions but I wouldn't say she was the worst teen in 1999. Wonder what they said about her? I loved Miguel and Charity - they were so cute together! I

The Princess Gina SL~ (DAYS)
It was amazing and I'll never forget it. I spanned from november 1998-early 2000. I loved seeing KA being front & center in a SL with Peter Reckell. Her transformation was also amazing going back & forth with Hope flashbacks & newly created Gina flashbacks. The editing was flawless when you saw it!

Dumbest axing ~ Louise Sorel (DAYS)
Absolutely true! I despised it so much. Ivan winning the lottery and whisking his Madame away around the world. I did love that they left together, but I missed them SO much aftewards!

Best Guest Appearances ~ Doug & Julie (DAYS)
They're amazing! They bring so much rich history with them when they're visiting Salem. Their scenes with Hope are always a pleasure to watch!
