It applies to all soaps, even ones not on the air anymore.

Steve and Kayla's wedding should of definitely been on the list. Also, maybe Antonio Sabato Jr or something Sonny, Brenda, Jax related on GH.

Vivian burying Carly alive seems the most glaring omission for Days but it's a fairly good list overall.

Didnt like the list...There was no Sonny and Brenda, who for me were an iconic supercouple in the 90's.

Loved the list. I was surprised "Marlena being killed by the Salem Stalker" didn't rate the top 10 given the public outrage before it was revealed the Stalker killed Samantha, not Marlena.

Of course this is my personal bias showing through.

All I know is that #2 BJ's heart story line was one of the best I have ever seen on daytime. The Scene where Felicia figures out it's BJ's heart that Maxie is getting and the scene were Tony is listening to Bj's heart beating inside of Maxie were two of the most powerful scenes I have ever seen on daytime. I still get chills when I watch them.

I'll always love you. Always

Glad to see Marlena's SL being so heavily featured. Kristen/Susan, Bo & Hope- and Doug eloping with Addie were there too.

I knew what #1 would be- even before looking at the list, and probably also #2, but I really thought that Stone's AIDS SL from GH would be high on the list... but it wasn't even on the list..

:lol: I love that Vincent getting pregnant by his father made the cut. That's just hilarious.

also sad Zack's death wasn't on there. A top 3 storyline since I've watched Days for sure. Although i realize they have many soaps to look at.

I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but I honestly don't think the LnL was the best moment in daytime history. Don't get me wrong, it was amazing, but there were a lot more powerful emotional scenes. Just my opinion.

I see what you're saying. I'm not GH watcher, but i'm gonna have to give them their props here. The Luke/Laura wedding was watched by 30 MILLION people. That alone makes that the no.1 moment on every list.

Luke and Laura were the ONLY choice for #1. The rest of the list just fell into place after that. It just has to be. And it really ended and began one of the better storylines ever anyway. Not like it was a standalone wedding. Some things may have been more emotional (See : BJ's heart, Stone's AIDS, etc) but this was the total package.

I can think of a lot of things I would take off this list and some I would put on there, but if we made 5000 of these lists they would all be different. Its just interesting to see someone else's take. I totally respect Michael Logan, probably more than anyone else in the industry, but it kinda looks like he threw this together fairly quickly and wanted to include more soaps instead of actually ranking the moments. I can deal with that.

Too bad Michael Logan doesn't actually devote his daytime page in each week's TV Guide to soaps anymore.

Not sure if anybody else has noticed but the past couple of issues have been praising the glory of Live With Kelly and Michael, The Talk or some other talk show. He needs to re-name it Daytime Talk Show Page.

His twitter and his page on TVGuide.com are just about exclusively soaps and soap stars other projects. I haven't actually seen a TV Guide in about a decade so I don't know anything about that.

I know! Why wasn't Sheila on the list? She was the greatestest soap villain.

Or Brooke sleeping with Deacon? Who cares that Ridge isn't a Forrestor?

I'm sorry, but as far as soap villians go,
NO ONE tops Stefano DiMera.

Stefano is ok but I think Helena Cassidine,(GH) Ceaser Faison(Gh) Carlo Hesser (OLTL) could give him a run for his money in regards to being more "evil"
