Here is description of 1984-1985 :

Created by Bridget and Jerome Dobson, the couple of writers at the origin of the program, the show gets noticed at once by its innovative aspect: a steady rhythm, a light tone, permanent humor… The writing of the scenarios as the dialogues reach a level of requirement still never seen in the soap-operas. The storylines are linked and are ceaselessly renewed, the outdoor shootings are legion, and numerous comedy scenes clash for this type of program.
From 1984, some main characters immediately mark the televiewers: Mason Capwell, the black sheep of the family, seems as he just came from a Shakespeare’s play; Augusta Lockridge frightens as much as she fascinates; Santana Andrade overwhelms by her fragility and her will to find her son… And especially, a first emblematic couple immediately meets its target: Kelly Capwell and Joe Perkins, the young heiress and the worker’s son unjustly accused of murder.

At the beginning of 1985, the storyline of the carnation killer leads to the disappearance of two very important characters: Peter Flint and especially Joe Perkins, who had already had to suffer from a change of interpreter in autumn 1984. Some new “bad guys” make their entrance (Marcello Armonti, Jack Lee / Jerry Cooper, Kirk Cranston), whereas others reveal themselves: Gina DeMott takes off, becoming the queen of machinations and blackmail. 1985 is also the year when the thread-driver storyline from the first year: Channing Capwell Junior’s murder is finally solved.
In parallel, a new couple takes over from Kelly and Joe, and this is for the remainder of the show: Eden Capwell and Cruz Castillo from then on become the iconic figures of the program, between passionate love, separations and repeated reunions. Especially, it is the new difference of social status between these two heroes which creates the attraction of the public: she is a rich fair Californian girl, he is a modest policeman, son of Mexican immigrants.
The year ends in a blaze of glory, with the patriarch C.C. Capwell in a coma, and Gina’s memorable strategy to accuse Eden of having tried to kill him by pulling the plug of his life support system.

Here is description of 1986 :

1986 is maybe the year when Santa Barbara reaches its peak. Many of the best storylines of the show are gathered this year and delight the fans: the discovery of the real identity of Brick Wallace, the killing frenzy of Kirk Cranston, the affair of the videotape acquitting Kelly of Dylan Hartley’s death… And especially, two characters diametrically opposed are going to mark the televiewers forever: the sweet Mary DuVall, whose unexpected death leaves the fans as orphans, and Keith Timmons, the shady and eccentric district attorney.
Only Santa Barbara can take pride of such a cast, capable of giving life to characters unthinkable until then in a soap-opera: besides Keith Timmons, Pearl Bradford, original and slovenly, clashes but immediately takes the sympathy.
Sophia and C.C. finally form as a real couple, even if Gina watches to make them separate. The character of Gina continues its ascent, whereas Eden and Cruz, who have just overcome the last obstacles to their reunion (Kirk and Santana), see the arrival of a new schemer named Victoria Lane. On the other side, the show suffers from the departure of Louise Sorel, which sees the Lockridge family reduced to its chieftain, Lionel.

 Here is description of 1987 :
1987 marks the beginning of a new couple which, in spite of ups and downs, is going to pursue its development till the end of the show: Julia Wainwright and Mason Capwell. But the big storyline which is going to stand out this year is the one surrounding Elena Nikolas, who alternately kidnaps Eden and Mason and makes them pass as dead, tries to seduce Cruz and commits suicide by accusing him of her death. Another couple is born, for a more limited duration this time: Kelly and Jeffrey Conrad. In spite of the importance given to their relationship, it will never succeed in equaling the couple Kelly and Joe, even after a luxurious wedding at the end of November.
If love triangles are legion in the show, one clashes by the links which unite the characters. Within the triangle Julia, Mason and Victoria, a real relationship of friendship unites both women and it is together that they suffer from Mason’s absence. 1987 is also the year when the Capwell family takes control of the storylines. If the Lockridges resist a little, it is only by opposition to their forever rivals. The departure of the character of Santana Andrade for a while closes the presence of the other big families in the storylines.

Here is description of 1988:

The first big storyline of the 1988 year is an affair of espionage leading Eden and Cruz in Mexico seems too ambitious for a soap-opera. But then the writers put things right when, on April 1st, they offer to the televiewers the scene they were waiting for three years: the wedding of Eden and Cruz. Around them, new characters get in presence on screen: in particular Dr. Scott Clark and Pamela Conrad, Mason and Jeffrey’s presumed dead mother, who unfortunately disappears after a few months while she was promised a more long-lasting fate. And in 1988 some new faces arrive (Andrea, the Donnelly family, Celeste).
1988 is also the year when Marcy Walker announces her pregnancy, which makes Eden a future mom for baby girl Adriana. The show waits for the fall in September to launch its shocking storyline: the rape of its heroine, Eden Capwell Castillo. The direction is so realistic and the act is shown in such raw violence that the fans share their emotion to the direction of NBC. Furthermore, the discovery that the rapist turns out to be Eden’s gynecologist, Zack Kelton, is only increasing the malaise among the televiewers! Other themes with rich emotional potential (sometimes particular to the United States) are tackled, in particular the memory of the Vietnam War and its traumas, like the discovery of children coming from both cultures for the former G.I.s.

Here is description of 1989:

After Robin Wright, 1989 sees the departure of two other symbolic actors: Lane Davies (Mason) and Todd McKee (Ted). One is replaced in his role, the other is not. To boost the always sluggish ratings, numerous new characters make their entrance within a few weeks: the DiNapoli sisters, the couple Laura and Ethan Asher, Megan Richardson and her son Greg… But little are going to survive beyond the year. Around Cruz gets established a family, with his brother Ric and his father Rafael. It is especially the arrival in June of the character of Robert Barr which boosts the interest, by creating a new love triangle with Eden and Cruz. Concerning the eccentricities, if the public lost Keith, it catches with Bunny Tagliatti, the big-hearted transvestite mafia – a character as only Santa Barbara can invent.
A part of the team also goes to Paris for the shooting of the episodes of the kidnapping of Adriana by Cruz
s sister-in-law. These episodes had to be of use as thanking to the French audience for its loyalty in the show,. In any case, they allow the acquaintance with the new Kelly, Carrington Garland, who immediately enters the heart of the televiewers with storylines finally worthy of the character for one year.
Santa Barbara pursues its metamorphosis: if the secondary characters change, they darken not at all the fundamental characters of the show who remain faithful to their original lines. Only Mason, from now on played by Terry Lester, loses in gravity to form with Julia a lighter couple, more capable of comedy. The bend concerning Mason had been in any case widely started with Lane Davies, during the story of his double personality, Sonny Sprocket, especially treated on a comedy tone.
At the ceremony of the Daytime Emmy awards, Marcy Walker (Eden), Nancy Grahn (Julia), Justin Gocke (Brandon) and again Justin Deas set off with a trophy. And Santa Barbara is again named drama of the year!

Here is description of 1990:

In 1990, because of decreasing ratings, Jill Farren Phelps is dismissed and replaced by John Conboy, who worked among others on the soaps The Young and the Restless and Capitol. His first decision is to re-form the Lockridge clan which had completely disappeared years after years since 1985. Here are thus again Augusta, Lionel and new Laken and Minx. Other founding acts to leave his print: he rebuilds the set of the imposing and emblematic Capwell villa, and gradually replaces the accompanying music which played as landmarks for the televiewers since the creation of the show. New characters are integrated (Stephen Slade, Derek Griffin, Amado Gonzalez, the Richards family), but none succeed in really making an impact. Without doubt the fault is small personalities and the time is not given to make an impact. Some storylines drag on (the four avenger orphans) and others are little credible (the kidnapping of Cruz in a Middle East harem). Two characters are however going to stand out this year: Cassandra Benedict and Flame Beaufort. Beyond the attraction for their characters, their respective interpreters have undoubtedly a lot to do with that. The storyline around Quinn Armitage, who takes the place of his twin brother Robert Barr, boosts the interest by putting several characters in danger.
One year after his arrival, Terry Lester leaves the show and is replaced by Gordon Thomson, more adapted to the role. The comedy scenes also flow with whimsical characters very well written as Phyllis Blake, Gina
s mother, or Annie DeGeralamo.
The same year, A Martinez and Henry Darrow (Rafael Castillo) win a Daytime Emmy award for best actors, respectively for a lead and a supporting role, and Santa Barbara goes out still victorious of the ceremony as the best show.
