These are the Tates and these are the Campbells
The third season of "Soap" is another whirlwind of comic activity chronicling the highs and lows of the Tate-Campbell families. Significantly, after two seasons of background performances consisting of being asked to leave the room while the adults talk, Jimmy Baio finally gets his own front-and-center storylines: a rousing farce in which he is held hostage by the Sunnies cult, and later a story arc that has him dating his high school teacher on the sly until his 18th birthday arrives. Richard Mulligan is also given more to do than usual this season, as his Burt Campbell is held hostage on an alien spaceship while his "double" takes his place on Earth (the little green fellow is especially excited by this prospect because he hasn't had sex in over 2000 years!); later, Burt attempts to leave his mark on the world with endless attempts to break a Guinness record, then runs for Sheriff of Dunns River. Meanwhile, further marital problems plague Chester (Robert Manden) and Jessica Tate (Katherine Helmond), Jodie Dallas (Billy Crystal) fights for custody of his baby, Danny Dallas (Ted Wass) begins an interracial love affair, and Benson (Robert Guillaime)is spun-off into his own series. Confused? You won't be after watching Season 3 of "Soap".
