    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    At first it was Abby. But when he got a little older and wasn't a child anymore, it was Michael. I adored this yummy guy soooo much and was hoping for a shirtless scene every new week. And sometimes i even got rewarded. :D

    My favorite Character is KAREN. Although, she was nosy at times and got involved in others problems. She always stayed true to herself through out the entire seasons. She was honest and extremely loyal. She could at times be opinionated and Judgmental. However, she was a listening ear and was not afraid to give constructive criticism when it was needed. She was not the YES person. Which we all know that everyone in that CUL-DE SAC needed. Karen was the Rock that held everything together. She displayed watch true friendship is about. Even through her moments she still took accountability for her faults and all of her mishaps and worked on making it better. The most impressive season that displayed Karen's loyalty was when know one would believe Val about her Babies. Although, at first Karen was a little skeptical she eventually stepped in and through it all helped Val through a very difficult time. She was persistent and would not stop. I love that about her. She reminds me of myself in a lot ways. She gives of herself without asking anything in return. She loves unconditionally. Karen was that friend that everyone needs in there life.

    My second favorite character was Valene. She was so sweet and innocent. Sometimes she wore rose colored glasses and couldn't not see the predators. I love how she loved Gary. She was loyal, and committed. Although, at times she was a little emotional and uncontrollable. She always found her way to do the right thing. She was a good friend to talk to and lean a shoulder. She adored Olivia right from the start. This was probably because she missed her time with Lucy. She wasn't afraid to express her feelings right or wrong. She stuck by Gary after all of the cheating and the betrayal. She had a beautiful spirit. I am glad that she finally got an opportunity to be a mother.

    Gary Ewing. I love his complexity, and how he got stronger and stronger in adversity.

    I totally agree. He did get stronger through out. I loved the way that he loved VAL not matter what. He had an undying love for her. She was the only one that could really affect HIM regardless of the circumstance. He was very sexy and extremely passionate. I guess that is why most of the Women on the show had a crush on him including good ole PAT!! even Anne was trying to get her claws in him posing as a Sunday School Teacher of all things.:p

    She was so fascinating, she made me cry and she made me laugh, I love those moments where she's holding her stomach when she's anxious over what was happening to her at that point in the story.

    I couldn't possibly pick just one character, so I guess my top choices would be the cul-de-sac's Earth, Wind, and Fire: Karen, Valene, and Abby.

    Of these three, my top favorite would most definitely by Abby. She is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen on TV, and she is one of my all time favorite soap opera villains. What I like about Abby is she isn't all mean. Sure, she was ruthless, but she had a soft spot for her children, and for those she loved. She could battle Karen and Valene, or the other ladies with no problem, but at the same time she had a sense of realness to her. She wasn't just mean to be mean.

    Second, I would pick Valene. Of all the people on the show, I think Valene has developed the best of all the characters. In the earliest seasons (including her time in Dallas), she was a fragile and insecure woman. After Gary ditched her for Abby, Valene grew up, married Ben, got pregnant by her ex-husband, dealt with a mentally deranged half-brother, the kidnapping of her twins, multi-personality disorder, the double life of Ben, his disappearance, Lilimae leaving, et cetera. She is the bomb. I love Valene.

    Third, would be Karen. Now, I do like Karen, but at times, she can be a bit pushy and get a tad on my nerves. I really enjoy her friendship with Valene and her relationship with Mack and her kids, although most of her storylines haven't been some of my favorites. However, I did like what she did with Sid's death and aftermath, and her drug addiction problem. Great!

    I can't choose a favourite lead character (Gary, Valene, Karen, Abby, Paige) but from the supporting cast I'd choose Joshua Rush, Patricia Williams and Danny Waleska. Oh wait, that's 3 instead of 1.

    A distant second would be Patricia Williams.

    I meant the main cast...I never considered Kate as part of that cast. I can't even remember did she get added to the credits in the latter seasons?

    There were plenty of extra's I could do without like Fish lips :lmao:
