Last weekend 7de Laan was voted the best soapie in the land by viewers. It shows 7de laan fans are the most loyal as they actually voted.
I can totally relate…
This last week was extremely busy and stressful for me. I had to come home from work and immediately had to start on UNISA assignments for my Diploma in Information Technology as I have to hand in by Friday 5 March and I still had a few things to do.
I had about a total of 1 hour of tvtime for the week (not good for an admitted tv addict!) – until Thursday, when I reached breaking point.
Then I did what any sane person could do. I turned on my favourite soapie, chilled on the couch for half an hour and got lost in 7de laan’s stories. Friday I did the same thing.
Fortunately there was Paula action and very little storyline involving Gita and San-Mari to spoil the fun, though I could have done with less Vanessa!
None of the other soapies have that effect – I sometimes watch Isidingo and Generations – and they’re just a lot darker than 7de Laan.
The US soapies like Young and the Restless and Bold and the Beautiful don’t even come close – they’re just repetitive and boring most of the time.
