2/14 - 2/18
This is the first week since this show started that I had
to stop and try to remember what happened before I could sit down and
write this. Honestly, there was just nothing noteworthy, or at least
very little. Maybe it's a senior moment, but I don't think so.
I think this was simply one of the most boring weeks this show has ever
put out. I have a feeling the show is
going to be so bland and boring they figured they needed to get us ready
for the let down. All I know is, except for a couple of exceptions,
nothing that happened this week is worth mentioning, so this might be my
shortest column ever. I would like to apologize up front for that,
and I thought I should explain why it happened. So, with the
understanding that I haven't had much to work with, here goes.
One bright spot was having Sheridan realize once and for
all that Marty is her son. Now, I say that knowing that her resolve
lasted all of -oh - maybe 15 minutes, but it was great while it lasted,
wasn't it? I, like many of you, have wondered for quite a while how
no one could look at the boy and not see he is hers. I mean, whoever
is in charge of casting did a wonderful job when they picked that little
guy. He looks like Sheridan and he looks like Luis, depending on how
you see him and who he's with, but in no way does he look like Beth.
Anyway, if it weren't for the elf taking the Santa pictures who saw the
resemblance clearly, no one would ever have noticed, and that's just not
possible. But, anyway, Sheridan finally saw it and claimed him as
hers as the week opened, and Beth was in a dither because of it.
Edna seemed thrilled, yet once again said nothing. I am so tired of
that. She really needs to speak up at some point. But, leave
it to formerly studly hero Luis to blow that out of the water. He
refuses to see the resemblance and adamantly sticks to the "He's
Beth's, not yours" line. The problem this week was Sheridan's
reaction to that. Now, if I had a child that I knew was mine and he
was in someone else's care, you had best believe I would have a DNA
test done even if I had to bring in my own Q-Tip and swab his mouth with
it on the sly. Even if they said I faked it, they would have to do
their own test to prove it and the truth would be known. Does anyone
remember the lady in New York or wherever who told her baby had died but
then she went to a birthday party for a little girl and realized she was
her "dead" daughter? She raised a stink until tests were
done and she was proved right, so that's what I think Sheridan needs to
do, but that's not what happened. She let Luis talk her out of it!!
Someone please tell me where the real Sheridan Crane went! OK, maybe
she lost all her backbone when she was blown off the boat and ended
up with Antonio. I know she acted like a docile little puppy with
him, following ten steps behind when he walked, almost, and doing whatever
she was told to do by him. Now she's letting Luis lead her around by
the nose, and it's just not right. I want the old, feisty,
sure-of-herself woman she used to be back, and I mean right now! I
am tired of this milque-toast waif, sluffing around with her head bowed,
yes-siring and no-siring Luis as if he is her master or something.
Raise a ruckus, for goodness sake. Demand a DNA test and don't back
down. Slap the snot out of Beth and tell her to back off, then take
the boy and go to the DNA lab, straight to the DNA lab, do not pass GO,
etc. I would, come what may. I know, at the end of the week
she admitted to Marty that she still knows she's his mother but that does
nothing to help prove it's true. She simply needs to take him and
get him tested. Oh, I guess I could be getting too harsh with all
this, but, darn it, this whole story bugs me and it should have been over
months ago. And the worst part of it is that, when he convinced her
she was wrong, she used the lamest reasoning I've ever heard, and it made
me want to throw up. "Luis loves me so I have to believe
him." Can you imagine? Good Lord, woman, grow some
gumption, get a spine, and tell the fool he's a chauvinistic pig!
How dare he dismiss her feelings so cavalierly, as if she couldn't
possibly be right. He doesn't even do the smart thing and have the
DNA done to show her she's wrong, once and for all, he just demands she
forget her feelings and stop bothering poor Beth. And then he goes
to Beth and discusses Sheridan's "problems" with her!! OK,
now I'm getting upset here, I know, but how disrespectful can this dolt be
to the woman he supposedly loves? I never thought I'd see the day
when Luis would make me sick, but that day has come, and I really wish he
would fall over one of the cliffs around that town and disappear forever.
At least his mother finally stood up to him this week and told him she's
his mother and is quite capable of making her own decisions. Yahooo!!
You go, girl. This guy has gone from being a woman's dream man to a
full-fledged nightmare, and all the muscles, cute smiles, and gorgeous
eyes in the world can't camouflage that. I think Sheridan needs to
move on, find a real man, and forget about Luis. Let him have Beth
and all that comes with that. It's all he deserves.
Another thing I liked this week was the Eve/Whitney
reunion. I was so happy to see Whitney finally turn to her mother.
I just wish she would listen to her and do what she should. I don't
much like the starving routine, either. First of all, the baby will
take what it needs from her body, doing her more harm than good, and
secondly, how a mother could want to do that to her child is beyond me.
If she doesn't want to have it, she needs to get an abortion and get it
over with quickly. By starving it, she is causing it too much pain
and it's actually torture, in my opinion. But for her to decide she
can't get an abortion and then start doing her best to lose it anyway
makes no sense. Where's the difference? How can she really
think killing her baby this way is preferable to aborting it?
Absolutely unbelievable, in my opinion, and I just don't see why the
writers are doing this. Usually a woman's reason for not aborting is
so the baby will live, so either she is really a superficial witch who
simply doesn't like the word and wouldn't do it for that reason, or she is
totally stupid. Either way, this part of the story is just dumb.
The only good thing about it is that it's bringing the girl and her mother
closer together, and I think it would be great if they let Liz become
aware of that and start machinating to get them apart and Whitney catches
on. She could finally see what Liz is really all about and become an
ally for her mother. That would be great, in my opinion, and carry
the story to a new level.
Well, that's about it as far as storylines I liked this
week, or ones I can remember, anyway. The rest is all Katherine
making a huge sacrifice for Martin and Sheridan, Rebecca helping Gwen get
away, Alistair seeming to be a half-way decent guy, yet we know he has a
devious reason for helping Katherine, Theresa over-acting, over-reaching,
over-bearing, and over-the-top again, and whatever else went on. I
simply don't remember. I did think Fox being the understanding,
loving father was cute, but you know it's only happening so when the
bottom falls out from under him he has further to fall, and that kind of
tempers my enjoyment of it. But, he was cute at it, wasn't he?
I'm still trying to get a grasp on Valerie. I know
she came on as a good person, out to help Chad, but I just can't help
thinking she is a plant, put there by Alistair to cause problems for him.
I don't know how, unless it's to make him fail at the business, but I just
keep expecting her to get together with the old man and even end up in his
bed. I don't know why, probably just my suspicious mind, but just
keep your eyes open, just in case.
OK, that's about it for now. As I said, I simply
can't remember what else happened this week. It's just not that
