Going to Rant
By Sonia


I've been watching the show lately, and I'm getting a little confused. Jack is supposed to be human, right? I mean has anyone actually seen this man be human? What I mean by 'be human' is have you seen him make mistakes? Because lately I only see him being the victim of something Carly has done or hang out with his "new wife." (The reason I have put that in quotes is because I don't see Janet sticking around. I mean she may be fun, but I don't see her lasting....she's Carly, just with tons more make-up and weird clothing.) I mean Jack never does anything wrong. He sits up on his high horse and looks down on everyone. I bet you if Jack saw litter in Oakdale, he would think Carly did it. I mean everything bad that happens has to be linked to Carly. So right now Carly is under tons of stress, her business seems to be failing (one tip: try having the place open more often), she doesn’t seem to have any friends, and has started a business with....CRAIG. I know, I know, what are you thinking? How could she even think about working with him? Well the answer is simple; she needs to get out of the debt she is in and he seems to be the only option that she has available.  Right away, I thought it was a great idea. I mean, I love seeing Carly and Craig together, they just work. Craig understands Carly better than anyone else. He knows she lies (who doesn’t), he knows that she’s not perfect. I love it, no strings attached and she has no one to disappoint (with Jack she disappoints him when she breathes.)

So then all of the sudden Carly gets drunk, once I thought all right, but then she did it a second and third time. So basically our show is making her an alcoholic, like honestly this is stupid. I love that Carly is a main character but why couldn’t Jack be the one to start drinking, he needs to have something wrong happen. Any time something bad happens to him, it’s always someone else’s fault. I mean I WANT, I mean WANT him to do something wrong, maybe he could lie or steal...I would love that.  Of course, Carly is going to do something dumb when she is drunk, and Jack is going to get on her case. I just hate that they're making her an alcoholic. I know that Carly will never been a straight arrow, but this is just getting out of hand.

Let’s discuss the things Carly has done wrong (lately):

      • Carly’s drinking (a lot)
      • Carly going into business with Craig
      • Carly missing Sage’s performance
      • Carly’s involvement with Simon
      • Etc., etc., etc.

Let’s discuss the things Jack has done wrong:

      • Nothing
      • Nothing
      • Nothing

Wow, that was interesting, What do you think the writers could do to make Jack human?

Well this is all just my opinion
