All My Children and the 3 soap operas we'd love to bring back (plus the 2 we never want to see again)

While daytime was once filled with soap operas, only a few remain today. If we had the power, we'd love to see these four particular soaps... and we also wouldn't be sad to never see two particulars soaps ever again.

Guiding Light - Bring Back

It's hard to believe that it's been 15 years since Guiding Light signed off the airwaves following a 72-year run on radio and TV, but not a day has gone by that we haven't missed our favorite residents of Springfield, Illinois. While the show was full of amazing characters, none could hold a candle to Reva Shayne who was the heart of the show. Reva is one of daytime's most iconic characters and we'd love to see what she's been up to in the last 15 years as well as the rest of Springfield's top residents.

Passions - Wouldn't Bring Back

Look, we appreciate the desire to bring something new to the world of daytime, but Passions was a little bit too out there for our liking which is likely why the show didn't last nearly as long as daytime's other top dramas. While I know the show has a cult following, this is one daytime drama that I would be happy to leave behind in the dust as it was just a bit too much.

The show was full of crazy moments, but they took it a bit too far when they had one character get into a car crash in the same tunnel where Princess Diana died right after buying a book and then heard Diana's voice guiding her away from the light. It was tasteless and we're not surprised the show didn't make it long.
