4 stars out of 5 -- "The real accomplishment of the programme was its gleeful bending, breaking and/or cavalier disregarding of the parameters in which situation comedy could operate."
Airing on ABC-TV from 1977 to 1981, SOAP parodies the conventions of the soap opera in its story of two families, the Tates and the Campbells, and all their adventures and disagreements--which include everything from infidelity to insanity to alien abduction. The series is also notable for having one of the first openly gay characters in prime time television--Jodie Dallas (Billy Crystal). The first season is included in these three volumes.
