Shirley's Opinion #70
6/28 - 7/2/04
This week was better than some, not as good as others.
I guess it was so-so. I know it was only on three days this week,
but you would think they would have tried, anyway. Does anyone else
get the feeling the speed wagon we were on for a while has slowed down and
is threatening to stall out again?
We still have Martin and Katherine alternately whining
about how horrible they are for walking away from their families and
telling each other they really aren't horrible, they had to do it.
Now, as you know, I agree with the first part. No parent I know
would take off and leave their kids behind so they can be with their
adulterous lover. Well, ok, I have heard stories, but none that I
could say absolutely happened. And while I know this isn't a real
couple, still it bugs me that they are still carrying on the same
conversation after all this time. I was talking to our hosts about
this very subject last week, and they came up with something I hadn't
thought of, but that makes really good sense. They wondered if all their
conversations have gone this way throughout however many years they have
been gone, and if they were, why are they still together? Can you
imagine how boring that would have to be? Ten or 20 years of
"I'm horrible for leaving them!" "No, you had to
leave them so Alistair wouldn't kill us both." Now, these two
sentences are completely interchangeable between the two of them, and
either one may start the conversation, leaving the other to follow up with
the second sentence and any other words of "We had to do it"
they might think up. Still, they have to be the most boring couple
ever on daytime, don't you think? Heck, I've only been listening to
this for a month or so and I'm already bored to tears by it, so how on
earth did they manage to stick it out through 20 years of it? UGH!!
I have to say at this point that I don't even care, really. They
deserve each other and that whiny, repetitive conversation, but we don't.
They're the ones that left their families high and dry. I don't know
about you, but I have come to the realization that there is nothing in the
world these writers can dream up that will ever make me feel sorry for
these two. They deserve whatever they get, and for the first time on
this show, I am on Alistair's side in this. Go get 'em, Al.
Then we have Antonio's explosive departure from the show.
I guess if you've got to go, that's a great way to do it. Leave them
wanting more, as they say. Sheridan and Luis got through the shock
of losing him pretty easily, so far, but Pilar....now that's a different
story. Poor Luis was left alone with her, and anybody with a brain
could tell he was going to give in and spill the beans to her, even though
the nurse said she shouldn't be told. Poor Luis. It isn't his
fault. He just can't say "No" to his Mama. He's a
good boy, and when Mama says "Jump", he asks "How
high?", just like any good son would do. He tried to not tell
her. Really, he did. But Pilar is a smart lady, and she could
read the looks on his face as he ducked and dodged her questions. So
when she finally said he had to tell her what he was keeping from her, of
course he had to tell her. It's not his fault she went into a spaz
attack, is it? I tell you, I wasn't sure what she was doing.
First I thought it was a heart attack, but looking at her made me think it
was a stroke. Then they started talking about seizures, so at this
point I am totally unsure about what's up. Wouldn't it be a bummer if he
lost his brother and his mother on the same day? He finally gets
Sheridan back and then loses his mother and brother. Where's the
justice in that? I tell ya, these two just can't catch a break.
No happiness for these too, no siree Bob. But there is one other
thing that bothers me more than the loss of life and lack of happiness.
Why is a nurse treating her and not a doctor? I know Eve is at home
being outed by Aunt Irma, but aren't there other doctors there? I'm
not sure, but I'd say the Lopez-Fitzgerald's luck may be changing.
They have a really great case for medical malpractice on their hands.
Woody!! Get in here!!
Fox and Theresa. What is up with these two?
They get together, seem to be madly in love with each other, then Theresa
breaks up with him for some vague reason so he trots after Whitney again,
almost bagging her. Then Chad and Theresa show up and Fox leaves,
with Theresa hot on his trail. He runs out to the cliff over the
ocean and starts yelling at the top of his voice to God about why can't he
have Whitney, etc. Of course Theresa hears and wants to run away,
but instead of heading back to the inn, she tries to walk right in front
of where he's standing and ends up falling over the cliff. Fox
doesn't notice, of course, and goes back to the inn to find her.
When he learns she went looking for him, he realizes the scream he heard
was probably her so he goes to find her and ends up saving her life.
(Aah, my hero!) But, when they get back to the lodge, Theresa wants
to tell Chad and Whit what she heard. Why? The guy just saved
her life, why turn on him like that? Maybe it made sense to everyone
else, but I was at a total loss. Anyway, she didn't really do
it, but.....she will. Man, these writers need a crash course in
And then there's Aunt Irma. What is wrong with that
old bag? She claims she's in that home by mistake, but as I said
before, from what I can see she belongs there. Now Liz has managed
to get her out of the home and over to Eve's house, so she's now
screeching her vulgar names at Eve in the doorway of her home. What
on earth is up with her? Ok, she's not happy with Eve's past, but
she needs to get over it. I would think she and Liz were related,
not Eve. She acts more like Liz, she carries grudges forever, like
Liz. And she bugs the heck out of me, like Liz. I don't know
if she's going to tell TC about Eve or not, though. I just keep
feeling like she might backfire on Liz, find out Eve isn't the person she
used to be and stop short of ruining the life she's built for herself.
Now, it's not that I think that's what she should do, but it just seems
like that's what might happen. I guess we'll know by the next time
we get together on here. I hope so, anyway.
And I also hope that if what I think about Alistair - that
he is going to be killed soon - happens in a hurry. I am as tired of
him as I am of Liz and Aunt Irma. I still have a feeling that might
be the cliffhanger they leave us with before the Olympics. I sure
Well, I guess I'll talk to you again next week.
Let's hope there is more movement and less dumb plot twists this week.
I could sure go for that.
