Soap Operas

When I was a little kid I'd watch the occasional episode of As the World Turns with my mom. The show made absolutely no sense, and when I saw a bit of it the other day I find that it's still over my head. The thing that shocked me most about it then (besides that people had exotic, foreign accents) still baffles me today. They'll have one actor playing a certain character for a long time, then one day BOOM -- they're gone. The character's still there, but played by some vaguely similar looking actor. Everyone seemed to accept this completely different person playing 'Jessica' or whoever, but it shook my 6-year-old world. Now I see them and I'm also shocked that everyone seems to accept the terrible acting, stories, music and production quality.
