Shirley's Opinion #86
11/22 - 11/26/04
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did,
except for missing our show. It seems like the people of Harmony, at
least the Lopez-Fitzgeralds, really did have the Thanksgiving from
Hell, though. I never cease to be amazed at the things Tabitha comes
up with, and now that Endora is helping her, it's even more wild.
I can't think of a worse idea than having all the
Lopez-Fitzgeralds together at one table. Pilar is depressed and
angry, Luis is angry and petulant, Paloma is petulant and mouthy, and
Martin is simply beyond belief. Katherine is there with him, and
besides the gall of that woman to stay knowing Pilar and Luis would be
there, she is really self-centered and whiny. Sheridan is trying to
support the man she supposedly loves, but can't quite stop trying to
defend the woman who has torn his life apart, even though that woman is a
complete stranger to her. Beth, of course, is....well, Beth at her
most evil. And who would have thought that Kay would be the one with
the most level head of them all? Amazing, I tell you.
Endora was an absolute darling this week, laughing,
jabbering, and giggling all over the place. It's hard to see her as
an evil witch-ling, isn't it? She did a great job with the
decorations, once she got the hang of it, and when she conjured up the
Pilgrims and Indians who wanted to burn her mother at the stake, well that
was something else. Luckily, she managed to get rid of them, but
then came up with the ugliest turkey Thanksgiving piņata imaginable.
And then she comes up with not one but four roasted turkeys along with a
bunch of live ones! Very funny. Especially when she zapped one
with a growth spell and it just kept growing and growing and growing.
That's what you get when you put a baby in charge, I guess.
Once the guests got there, it wasn't three minutes until
the fighting started, with Luis and Martin rolling all over the floor,
breaking things and knocking the furniture over. Everyone was
appalled, of course, except Pilar, who took the opportunity to go after
Katherine. Of course, that gave Paloma the chance to twist the knife
she had stuck in her mother's heart earlier again by defending her dad's
mistress to her own mother. Somebody needs to slap that girls mouth
shut, don't you think? I know, violence is a no-no, but no child has
the right to talk to any adult that way, let alone their own parent.
Anyway, the fights went on and on and all anyone did was scream and say
"Stop that!". I can't believe no one stepped in and pulled
them apart. Anyway, it was Kay who set them straight, and a whistle
from Sheridan that got their attention. Then Tabitha laid it on
thick about having Thanksgiving for the children. Sigh! Such a
great sentiment, but...so fake! And then, when Simone noticed the
Turkey piņata was leaking something red, like blood, they all gathered
around the doorway to look and ended up drenched in red sticky stuff when
the piņata exploded. Gross!! That should have been a clue
that the day wasn't going to get much better, but Tabitha figured out it
was cranberry sauce and told them she had ordered it off the Internet and
it was supposed to have been full of candy. Not the best reasoning
in the world, but they bought it, of course, and the meal began. Of
course, having that huge turkey running in and out of the room did little
to whet the appetite, but they seemed to manage to eat everything anyway.
And then Beth started her manipulations, trying to find out what it is
about Katherine that causes Sheridan to want to back her up so badly.
All in all, a very weird Thanksgiving dinner, in my opinion. I
wonder what they will do for an encore?
Meanwhile, Eve found out her daughter is having her son's
baby. Poor Fox, he is so sure he's the father, and he really wants
it to be true. Ivy just had to keep at it, didn't she? So, it
was OK for her to pretend Ethan was Julian's child all those years, but
God forbid anyone do it to the son she never gave a hoot about until now.
I am still waiting for all her little secrets to come out. I really
hope it's soon, because I hate that Sam is falling for such a no good,
lying, witch like her. He needs to find out what she has done and
kick her to the curb. Fast! I don't care if Grace comes back
or not, although it would be interesting to see how they react to each
other after all that's gone on, but I just don't want Sam taken in by Ivy
any longer. And the same goes for Liz, although I get the feeling TC
is so happy to have a warm body in bed that he won't care what she's done
or how big a skank she is. As long as he's getting what he wants, I
don't think he'd care. I felt so bad for Eve when she tried so hard
to get him to re-think the divorce and he just kept falling for Liz's
prodding. He really did come off as being a brainless twit, in my
opinion, because he simply refuses to see the truth, even when Eve flashed
it right under his nose. Not only did he completely ignore it, he
then took Liz out on the town and then home to his bed! What a
dunce! Now, he deserves what he gets, and Liz is his just desserts.
The thought of them together still turns my stomach, but he does deserve
So, does anyone know where Jessica is living now? I
mean, Fox has said several times that she hasn't been at home for a while,
so where is she staying? In her Mark bag? Not that I miss her
commercials, but it just seems strange that she isn't at home now that
Charity and Kay are both gone. It just doesn't make sense.
There I go again, wanting this show to make sense. I guess I'll
Is Rebecca getting on anyone else's nerves even more than
usual? I simply can't stand the woman. Oh, she can be
funny, but mostly she's just gross and evil. OK, so she is right,
Theresa does have designs on Ethan, but heck, it takes a schemer to know one,
right? Like she has room to talk, I say. Anyway, she caused Gwen
and finally Ethan to ignore Theresa's cramping and leave her alone in the
foyer! Ethan? I swear, that man is so stupid now it's not
funny. He simply allowed Gwen to pull him out of the foyer as if he
were a two year old. Meanwhile, Theresa tries to get to the phone to call
911 and faints dead away. They finally decide she really does need
to get to the hospital, but Rebecca just keeps up her nagging there.
That's another one that needs to have her mouth slapped shut - again.
Pilar, where are you when we need you, woman? But as I said, Theresa
is determined to get Ethan back and I have to tell you, protestations
aside, he seems to be just as eager to be with her. See, that's what
makes me angry. Why can't he just be a man and tell Gwen he really
loves Theresa, he made a mistake by marrying her in the first place, he's
only caused her pain by doing that, and he wants to end it now?
How hard could that be? Even if she has fits and wants alimony,
at least he'd be free to be with the woman he really loves and he wouldn't
be living a lie. It would be more honest and he wouldn't just
keep hurting Gwen all the time. I don't know, maybe I'm just too
black and white in things like this, but I simply believe honesty is the
best policy. Just look at Eve and the way her life has turned out
because of her lies. Tell the truth and live with the fallout.
Your life will turn out better in the long run if that's the way you live
OK, that's all for this week. I guess the world
finds out Whitney is pregnant with Chad's baby next week, and Beth
will probably find out somehow that Mrs. Wheeler is Sheridan's mother, so
I expect it will be a really wild one. I'll be back when it's
over to let you know how I see it.
