We have all discussed Debbie Morgan's bad role as Yoharmony and Genie Francis's lip biting Genevieve on Y&R. But Robin Strasser took the cake when she was reduced to playing Hecuba on Passions. Just take a look (lol) at what one will do for a paycheck! I ain't judging! lol! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dB_T0YWT0g0

Wow, David, ultra-too much. I had heard that 'Passions' was over the top, but it must have been over the top every day.

Never quite understood the appeal of Reilly anyway.

@everyone: Yes it was

@everyone: Yes it was over-the-top everyday. And I never got his appeal either. He was not a award winning writer and his fans seem to accept the fact that if his shock value stories got the ratings up that it did not matter about any integrity of the writing.

You know as bad as Passions

You know as bad as Passions was back then I think everybody would take the crud that was put on Passions vs the crap that one the air today. There days Y&R can be a miss another week it could be a hit, and B&B one note...I'm just saying

Well, no one EVER accused

Well, no one EVER accused Robin Strasser of being subtle. Wow, I had forgotten how insane PASSIONS actually was. Don't know how most of those actors--hilarious, Jesse Metcalfe sitting on the couch in the middle of a convo with his shirt completely open--got those lines out with a straight face.

I only ever watched ONE

I only ever watched ONE episode of Passions. As I recall, the episode featured an ORANGUTAN NURSE FANTASIZING ABOUT MAKING LOVE TO A COP. Stare

After saying "WTF" at least 20 times, I decided there and then that it was not the show for me.

I saw an episode with someone

I saw an episode with someone named Tabitha, and her being a witch. Even that was too much.

God that was a long minute

God that was a long minute and thirty six seconds! lol One thing Reilly never did was inspire great acting. But then again, the subject matter was so dumb that it was impossible to act well. I have seen better plot material from a third grade play. I am glad that Jessie got better material on Dallas!

@marknsprmo: LoL! You hit the nail right on the head! I felt sorry for Robin Strasser. But I know sometimes you gotta pay the bills.

The only storyline I liked on

The only storyline I liked on Passions was the down-low storyline, where super-fine Chad Harris (played by Charles Divins) was screwing that nasty freak Vincent Crane (played by Phillip Jeanmarie). Because Divins was so damn hot, the fantasies were great...and I might add, the big on-screen reveal to Chad's wife after months and months was great. Music set to Beyonce and Shakira's 'Beautiful Liar' as the two men were rolling around in the bed and she walked in. I LOVED That! Only storyline that was decent on Passions in my opinion
