    WORST soap EVER. Its (international) success still is a mystery to me.

    I like the Bold and the Beautiful it is telenovela style but Port Charles was the first American telenovela, B/B is a glamorous old school soap opera true to the genre that features its vets in top tier story.

    Yes it has its flaws but no show is 100% (maybe except The Good Wife) overall I find it quite entertaining. I must not be alone they are huge in Italy (and other foreign countries) e.g. South Africa went crazy at the airport an unbelievable crowd when Brandon and Jacque, and Jack visited..
