Yendi and I have been wading through the first series (we’re at #12). When I say wading, it is more like zipping, downing two at a time every time. It’s desperately addictive. Over the weekend in New York I was chatting with my friend Bob and we debated whether or not this series is a Soap Opera. At first, I was claiming that the “sophisticated script” and the “superior acting” were enough to give it another status. But Bob put things into perspective: “No, it’s a soap opera. Pure and simple.” Somehow I can’t accept that I am addicted to a soap opera (when I think of all those silly shows that THOSE people watch…). But it does speak to me in many ways and the plot drives you to want to keep watching. So what do you think?
