Who Killed My Supercouple?

Ahh, the soap opera supercouple – beautiful girl meets dashing boy in the strangest of circumstances. Perhaps she’s a stripper in a bar, or maybe he’s a mob boss. Or possibly, he’s a criminal and she’s his assault victim. However it starts, the formula is always the same: girl and boy fall in love, girl and boy are wrenched apart, girl and boy fight to reunite.

MY. GOD! Mind = blown!

There are a number of problems with this plot and as far as I can see, only one fix.

We’re having a gay old time in soap world

Luke and Noah kiss, As The World Turns, 2007Days Of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful are both adding the first gay and lesbian storylines in their shows’ long history. It’s been five years since that heart-stopping kiss between Luke and Noah on As The World Turns, when soap opera fans were treated to daytime television’s first gay kiss. While ratings rose steadily for ATWT, controversy also followed, with dramatic fan reactions and grass-roots compaigns – both on the pro and anti side of the ledger. Five years on, is the genre – and its audience – ready to welcome some lesbian lip-locking and boy smooching, or will we once again tiptoe through the two lips and pretend the characters are just good friends?
