I think that soap operas do go too far, because, a lot of storylines are not "the norm" which is what soap operas is (supposed) to be based on, real life.
I think it shows kids the wrong things, and gives them a false image of real life.

Soap operas are ruining the lives of children in America. People are being corrupted by the content.

Don't think con understood the debate.

I agree that soap operas are extreme versions of life; somebody dies every month, but nobody seems to notice. I'd argue that they do not go too far, though -- it is entertainment. If you want to watch a completely realistic view of the world, you'd watch 'reality TV' (which is actually dramatised as well).

A realistic soap opera would be boring. The biggest drama would be burning your morning toast.
