      Only watched three of the BIG 4: Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest.

      The only one on the list I watched was Soap. Not familiar with the others listed.

        Falcon Crest was definitely my favorite. That's when we first met Mariska Hargitay.

      I don't recall my parents watching many of those shows listed. Maybe Falcons Crest. But we did watch Moonlighting.

        There were lots of other prime time soaps that were on between 1976-1986, such as For Love and Honor, From Here to Eternity, and Call to Glory, all three military soaps; Paper Dolls about the modeling industry; A Year in the Life, based on a popular miniseries; The Hamptons, a short run soap; Executive Suite, a business world soap that was a precursor to Dallas; Beacon Hill, an American remake of the very popular PBS series Upstairs, Downstairs (think Downton Abbey); Behind the Screen, a soap that aired on CBS against Saturday Night Live; and the Family Tree, a soap about a newly blended family.

        I don’t know about other people, but I consider shows like Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, Bay City Blues, and LA Law to be prime time soaps as well.

          I was obsessed with the prime time soaps of the 1970's and 1980's. Still am. Currently binge-watching them all on DVD's and/or flashdrives. These were my favorites along with the grades I give them today.

          01 DALLAS A+
          02 DYNASTY A
          03 FALCON CREST A-
          04 KNOTS LANDING B+

          I also LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Twin Peaks from 1990 to 1991. Just could not get into Beverly Hills 90210, Picket Fences or Melrose Place tho. I sort of wish I had given Titans a try in 2000 tho since I love Victoria Principal. Then again, I am a little glad I didn't since it got cancelled shortly after premiering.
