Wikipedia describes it as;
The show was created as a parody of daytime soap operas, presented as a weekly half-hour long primetime comedy. Like a soap opera, the show's story was presented in a serial format and included melodramatic plot elements such as amnesia, alien abduction, demonic possession, murder, and kidnapping. In 2007 it was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME."
The show is truly one of the best comedies of all time! Great actors showing great comedic timing, and it had some great plot twists that kept us coming back to watch.
