15 Dysfunctional Soap Opera Families We'd Go Home With For The Holidays
No. 14: The Greeleys, Pasadena
Fox's 2001 primetime drama Pasadena only lasted one 13-episode season. In that short amount of time, the soap gave us a family we'd kill to chill with over the holidays — the darkly-comic and woefully-dysfunctional Greeleys. While visiting the Greeleys for the holidays, one or more of the mega wealthy publishing dynasty's most shameful secrets would be unveiled by granddaughter Lily McAllister (Alison Lohman) before you could say, "Pass the cranberries." If you're really lucky, you might even walk in on Lily's high strung mother, Catherine Greeley McAllister (Dana Delaney), doing the family priest (Nathan Fillion) on the floor under the Christmas tree.
