The Best of Soaps 2014

The Bold and the Beautiful's Don Diamont and Katherine Kelly Lang

Death! Deceit! Dopplegangers! It's the year's best in daytime drama.

Best Soap: (tie) The Bold and the Beautiful and General Hospital
Why choose between them when both shows left us in such a sudsational state of bliss? B&B, daytime's most sumptuous serial, took us on location to Abu Dhabi, Paris, Monte Carlo, and Amsterdam for lots of awesome — and watery — action: Hope and Wyatt got hitched at sea, Quinn bitch-shoved Ivy into the river Seine, and Ridge plunged from a helicopter into the Persian Gulf. But the home front was no less riveting, with family warfare and corporate chaos. This is classic soap, done exquisitely.

Now for the bad news: Geary, who recently underwent major surgery, will be off the show until the fall for an extended recovery and vacation, so it will be quite a while before Fluke's true identity is revealed.

Premise: The classic Gloria Monty soap charting the trials of Port Charles' medical center. Even daytime naysayers tuned in to see the celebrated nuptials of supercouple Luke and Laura, who scored covers of both Time and Newsweek during the same month. Over time, the series flirted with sci-fi, sexy aliens, adventurous location shoots and a late '90s mafia madness. It debuted on April Fools' Day 1963 and spun off the gothic guilty pleasure that was `Port Charles' (which was canceled in 2003).
