Trivia

In 1983, Veleka Gray portrayed two different characters simultaneously: Patti's psychiatrist Dr. Sharon Reaves, and hotel manicurist Ruby. Unusually, the characters were neither look-a-likes nor related, they were involved in different storylines, and shared no scenes together. See more »

very good
22 January 2002 | by mattkratzSee all my reviews

This is one of those soaps that keeps you hooked. (It's the only one I watch, though.) The writing, performances, and storylines are all crisp and first rate. Eric Braeden is perfect as Victor Newman, and the rest of the cast does well too. It keeps you hooked by developing new ones just as others are beginning to wind down, and most of them are intertwined, as the new ones are frequently related to the old ones.

My favorite couples in the show are Nick/Sharon and Billy/Mac. I think they are great together. Other characters such as Michael Baldwin, Christine Blair, and Paul Williams make for a good mix.

All in all, a good soap whose writers know how to keep you hooked.
