Happy 12th Anniversary Passions!
Twelve years ago today, my life was changed when James E. Reilly's soap opera masterpiece Passions debuted at 2 PM on NBC. Never had I seen a soap this fun or wild or out there...it was everything I loved about JER's Days stint times one hundred! The characters were well-rounded, dynamic and diverse. Multi-generational and multi-racial, Passions could appeal to African-Americans, whites, Wiccans, and even dolls! I joined the fan club, I watched religiously, I ferociously defended my beloved Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald on message boards across the internet. Passions produced over 2000 hours of television, surpassing newer soaps like Sunset Beach, Port Charles, Generations, and even Santa Barbara.
I do hope one day all episodes of Passions will be available for purchase via download or DVD. I spent a wonderful 9 years with Passions and would gladly invite it into my home again.
P.S. This is a celebratory thread, so haters be gone!
