Mad Men or Passions plot twist?

This quiz

brings to light the few narrative differences between high budget quality drama and the soap opera serialization that it so strongly draws from. I even got two questions wrong, as a Mad Men super fan!

  1. I recently went home and tried to talk to relatives about all my favorite dramas. "I tried to watch that," my sister-in-law said, "but it was too soap opera-y for me." I replied, "Well, you have to watch it from the beginning!" Then I wondered, why? Isn't that what people say about their favorite soap operas? Maybe the only difference between great dramas and soap operas is the lighting.
