The barmy Beach.

A series called Soap was one of the all-time great sitcoms, which took the mickey out of every American soap opera.

It was a memorable madness of mirth until the Politically Correct brigade forced it off the air.

Now, years later, we have Sunset Beach, a serious (I think) soap whose plots are so bizarre, they could be reject scripts from that late comedy masterpiece.

Starring Susan Ward and Sarah Buxton, pictured right, the show is so awful it's almost unmissable.

And it has a legion of addicted fans, most of them housewives enjoying an escapist break from their daily chores.

The current storyline apparently goes something like this...

Meg's boyfriend Ben was attacked by his evil twin, Derek. Ben was pronounced dead, but came to life in his coffin.

Then the freaky female mortuary attendant tried to kill him.

Now Ben has escaped and has to stop demented Derek (who is pretending he's Ben) from killing Meg - who doesn't know WHICH twin she's dealing with.

Confused? You will be... even if you DO catch today's omnibus!
