Shirley's Opinions

By Shirley

4/17/06 - 4/21/06

The last two weeks on the show have been somewhat interesting, somewhat boring, and somewhat confusing, at least to me.  I think the Vendetta story could be very interesting, but they just seem to be taking their sweet time getting into it.  I know, they're setting up the way everyone is going to get to Rome, but it sure seems to be taking a whole lot of time.

I still haven't a clue as to why Paloma and Simone think they can solve the Mystery of the Missing Paintings, when experts over the centuries haven't been able to.  I guess it's as good a way as any to get the two of them back onscreen so I shouldn't be so picky about it, but it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  Par for the course, I know.  At least now we know how they will be able to afford the trip, since they conveniently found a stash of money in the documents storage room under The Book Cafe, tho.

Fancy is there for a fashion story, Noah and Maya are there at the orders of the mystery woman, Lena, and the FBI, and apparently Luis is going to find Marty.  I imagine both Chris and Sheridan will be there, too, of course.  Now, there is a story that really has me confused.  Have I lost all sense of reality as to what went on with her and Chris, or has she resorted to revisionist memory to explain her liaison with him?

See, here's the way I remember it:  Luis went off to find Marty, while Sheridan stayed at home, cursing the memory of him and all he stood for.  She met Maureen and James right before the earthquake and tsunami hit, and ended up caring for James after Maureen died from it.  Then she met Chris when he fought her over custody of his son, and they started acting like The Cleavers at the B&B, all within the space of a week or two, their time.  

Luis would call, she'd refuse to even talk to him if he didn't have Marty with him, and she grew closer and  closer to Chris.  Then Luis supposedly died.  Now, she went to his funeral and then that evening went to bed with Chris after spending the day professing her true, undying love for him.  And all the while she was whining about having lost Luis, which I found extremely irritating, if you remember.  

After a while, she and Chris decided to go to Hawaii after learning that's where Marty probably was, and they got married.  The next day they found Luis.  

Now, that's how I remember it.  However, when Sheridan was telling Luis why she was with Chris, she said he had died, then James and Chris came into her life, and finally she fell in love and married him.  Now, how is that for revisionist history?  I tell you, that was the slickest piece of changing the facts I've seen in a long time, how about you?  The point here is that the writers really need to try to remember what they've written before, and stop thinking that we're so stupid we will have forgotten it, too.  It's truly insulting.

Another bone of contention for me is the return of Miguel.  Now, I don't mind that he's back, I just hate like heck that he's decided to go after Kay, who's finally happy with someone else.  It's just not right.  It's like, "Ok, I can't find Charity, who I really love, but Kay's still here and I know I can get her, so why not?"  Why not????  Because she's in love with Fox and has the chance to be really, really happy for once.  Come on, we all know when (if) Charity comes back he'll drop Kay like a hot potato, ripping her heart out again.  It's just not right.

I still don't care about Noah and Fancy, but I love seeing Gianni.  I remember him from Days, although I'm sorry to say I can't remember the actor's name, and I love seeing him again.  He's a hotty.  Yes, he's older now, but he's still good looking, and that accent!  My, oh my!  Yes, I'm really loving having him back on screen, and if I have to suffer through more Noah/Fancy angst, so be it.

Theresa lost out with Ethan yet again, but the fight between her and Gwen was kind of fun.  I really wish she'd bashed Gwen in the face a few times, but she did get the chance to ram the truth down her throat again, and that's always fun to watch.  I just don't understand why Gwen refuses to admit what she (and we) all know to be true:  she's second best in Ethan's heart.  Now, what woman worth a dime would allow herself to be treated that way?  Oh, yeah, a really, really desperate-to-win-at-all-costs woman.  Well, all I can say is, she deserves everything that's happening to her if she doesn't have the self-respect to drop the fool and move on to someone who deserves her.  He certainly doesn't.

I hope I haven't forgotten something really important to the show, but that's about all I have to say for now.  Nothing is jumping out at me right now, so I guess this is all for this week.  I would like to say that I find it fun that a "mermaid" rescued Miguel when he was knocked off the boat.  I know it will be Endora's doing,  and I can only say that whatever it takes to get his mind off Kay so she can move on with her marriage to Fox is fine with me.
