Carrie smothers a piece of cake in Michelle's face as frosting flies everywhere. Just another night at the Spot, one of the best of a growing genre, the online soap opera. The Spot follows five roommates in an L.A. beach house through journal entries and photographs posted daily. The writing is hilariously campy: "I believe in the adage 'fight frosting with frosting,' " Michelle muses. You'll never fall behind because all back episodes are available online. Written by employees of an advertising firm that sponsors the site, the Spot is Melrose Place in cyberspace. URL: http://www.thespot.com
