10 Worst Soap Opera Storylines of 2013

No. 10: Room 8, The Bold and the Beautiful

We applaud CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful for venturing into the world of web serials, but next time can it be an afterhours peek into Brooke's (Katherine Kelly Lang) Bedroom? Room 8 was a lame, dated, vanilla dud — both on TV and on the net.

Guiding Light alums Karla Mosley (Maya) and Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) were both welcome additions to B&B in 2013, but we'd like to see them in one of the scandalous, raunchy tales B&B is known for, not used as "C" story fluff. Though we did get a hoot out of Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) popping that waterbed! READ MORE

10 Best Soap Opera Storylines of 2013

No. 10: Phyllis Helps Jack Detox, The Young and the Restless

We criticized a lot (okay, most) of the stories The Young and the Restless told in 2013, but you can never go wrong by pairing "The Berg" (Peter Bergman) and "The Staff" (Michelle Stafford) in a meaty storyline. Phyllis helping Jack detox from his addictions to booze and pills was the best of Y&R in 2013. The soap smartly played on the complicated histories of the two iconiccharacters, not to mention their powerhouse portrayers.


10 Best Soap Opera Newbies of 2013

No. 10: Robert Scott Wilson, All My Children

All My Children's casting department won the showcase showdown when they found The Price is Right model Robert Scott Wilson for the role of Petey, err, Pete Cortlandt. Wilson brought charisma, charm, maturity and one killer bod to the part of Palmer (the late James Mitchell) and Opal's (Jill Larson) son.

Not even Wilson could save Pete's insipid relationship with virginal Celia (Jordan Lane Price) on the internet soap. However, the digital sparks Wilson and fellow outstanding newbie Brooke Newton created when Pete and Colby were sexing up our second screens, had us needing to download an app for cooling down our laptops, tablets and smartphones.  READ MORE
