 Q:   Ask a Question about Soap Operas : Advantages and Disadvantages of Watching Them       
Soap Operas : Advantages and Disadvantages of Watching Them by Herminne Tonita -

For the last 15 years soap operas have been the most popular serials all over the world, whether they are American, British or Sud American ones. They deal with daily emotional problems of the same group of people. They first appeared in the USA and were called "soap operas" because they were financed by soap-making companies.

The American productions (like: "The Days of our Life, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful" ) are very glamorous, as the characters are very rich and powerful millionaires. In contrast with these soaps, the British ones, like "Coronation Street, East Enders, Brookside" are about ordinary people. But, critics have claimed that they do not present a real picture of life as almost every character has a serious emotional prob lem or is guilty of a crime.

The Sud American soap operas appeared 10 years ago and they all deal with the same subject: a poor person finds out the she comes from a very rich family and her life changes completely overnight.

If we think at the advantages of watching soap operas, first of all we should mention that they are very relaxing as they change the state of mind of the person who watches them, making you forget about the daily routine. Secondly, they may be educating as they last for a long period of time and they give you the opportunity to learn the spoken language,especially in the Latino ones. As well as this, some soaps deal with problems like drugs, alchool, drinking and they are trying to teach the teenagers how deadly these may bee to our health. Last but not least, soaps make the actors famous all over the world but they also raise considerably their bank accounts.

On the contrary, the majority of film critics consider soap operas to be nothing more than a waste of time, as they last very long and they become boring. Furthermore they are thought not to be real films, as the subject is lacking interest, being at the same time very superficial.

Another disadvantage is the fact they make people stay indoors when they should spend much more time in the open air.They create a sort of addiction as each episode ends when something interesting is about to happen and thus, you are tempted to watch the next one and so on until to you don't do anything else but stay in front of the TV.

All in all, my opinion is that soap operas are a waste of time and I advise anyone who wants to watch a good film to go the the cinema where you have more fun and you also get the chance to meet other persons and socialize
