Shirley's Opinions

By Shirley

10/9/06 - 10/13/06

This week on Passions.  What can I say about this week on Passions?  Oh, yeah.  GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK!!!!!!  I guess the writers have no idea just how badly I hate their stupid dream sequences, because they gave us the mother of all dream sequences this week, and I am not the least bit happy about it.  As a matter of fact, there are no words I can use in decent conversation to describe just how unhappy I am with this major blunder.

You all know what I'm talking about, I know you do, since I'll bet most of you were screaming at your TV just like me when Gwen woke up.  This has to be the worst use of dream footage in the history of this show, and that's saying a lot.  Oh, don't get me wrong, I had the feeling it was all just someone's dream from the moment Ethan turned and yelled at Gwen that she's a liar.  It just didn't seem like him, you, know?  He'd be more likely to look at her with his disappointed puppy dog eyes and ask how she could do such a horrible thing to him.  Yelling is not his style at all.

I guess it wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't something that I wanted to have happen so doggone badly for years.  The truth should have been brought out years and years ago, and yet it just continues as is, spinning in space, while we all sit out here and wish it weren't so.  How pathetic are we, by the way?  I wish we could just have a huge tuneout to show them just how much we hate what they are doing.  You know, just everyone who watches the show should find something else to do on Monday or something.  Maybe we could all drown them with e-mails explaining why we refuse to watch for that one day, hopefully forcing them to do what they should have done all those years ago and let Ethan find out the truth.

The rest of the week was mild, nothing major to complain about.  The usual Fancy stupidity, Theresa denial, Chad cheating, Chris lying, and Spike.... well, being Spike.  Nothing major, nothing great, just the same old stuff.... new week.   I enjoyed the intervention Paloma and Simone set up with Sam, Noah, and Kay, although I'm sure it will have no real, lasting effect on Jessica.... or else it will end up being just another dream sequence.  

The whole Fancy thing was stupid, just another way to get her half naked, with her bones poking out all over the place, and get Luis and her together in bed.  I tell you, it's sickening to have to watch these two trying to be sexy together, because it just doesn't work.  She and Noah - now, that worked.   Luis and Sheridan - we all know that worked.  But put those two together and you get pure "BLAH!"  I just keep wondering, too, how Fancy will be able to remain in the cadet program after her blatant disregard for the rules yet again.  The whole concept of this dillatent even being considered for police work is ridiculous, and they really need to ditch it quickly, along with the Fancy/Luis pairing.  These stories just don't pass the smell test.

Another couple that is about as exciting to watch as oatmeal boiling is Theresa and Jared.  Who on earth ever thought those two clicked?  I swear, watching them "making love" this week was almost torture.  I've seen more heat between to ice cubes than I saw with these two this week.  Honestly, when she began her loud moaning, which Ethan heard in the next room, I kept asking myself what the heck she was moaning about?  I even considered Jared might have rolled onto her arm, pinning it in a position that made her moan from pain, because there was absolutely nothing going on between those two that could possibly have generated that much enjoyment.  Well, come to think of it, after her love life with Alistair, I guess anything might be better for her.  But then, she and Ethan just showed what real chemistry is a couple weeks ago, so that can't be it.

When will we ever get to see exactly who Chad is knoddling with in that seedy motel?  If it turns out to be Valerie I am going to be the most disappointed person in town, because it will be another "take the easy way out" ending to a story that could be good, if handled correctly.  I don't care if it's a down low outting or just a hetero pairing that rocks our world, I just want something really good to come of it.  The whole thing makes no sense whatsoever in the first place, so the outcome had better be something worth the destruction of yet another super couple on this show.  Let him be with Pilar or something, just not Valerie!  That would be a real shock, and make it worth our while.

Spike needs to die.  Just as simple as that, he needs to die.  There is no reason for keeping him on the show, since he's disgusting and only makes me want to change the channel while he's on.  Alistair, for all his evilness, still had a fun side to him that kept us liking him just enough to make him a good character.  Spike has nothing going for him.  Nothing.  He's not even good-looking enough to make us want to see him no matter what he's doing.  They have simply left the creep no room to wriggle his way into our hearts, and he really needs to go.

Chris, on the other hand, can stick around a while longer.  Don't get me wrong, I don't want he and Sheridan to stay together, but if they keep him around to make trouble for Luis after he and Sher get back together, that's fine with me.  I think he's gorgeous, and there is a part of him that is lovable, so he'd be a great anti-hero to have around for a while.

I loved Tabitha's sweet talk with Kay this week.  She really did try to comfort her cohort, and even stroked her cheek like a loving aunt or Granny, whichever, and I loved seeing it.  We've known she has a heart in her witchy chest since Timmy was around, and now we got to see just how loving that heart really can be, even to someone other than her own little girl.  I just wish she would have kept her nose out of Kay and Fox's business and let Miguel go on about his way.  She could have had all her problems over and done with had she encouraged him to join up with Siren, yet she insisted on pushing him at Kay.  I really hated that, even tho I adore her.  

There wasn't a whole lot more to talk about this week.  It was another week where not much happened- well, in reality, that is - and nothing stood out about any of it.  The dream being the exception, of course.  I kind of liked Kay's "Wonderful Life" take-off, although I do wish they'd had her go see her family living without ever having had her, and also if Endora's tricks on the girlfriends-that-might-have-been for Fox and Miguel had been a bit more imaginative.  Ok, she messed their hair up and tore their clothes.... big whoop!  They could have done so much more with this, such as making them fat, or giving them pimples all over their faces, and that would have made it a better twist to the story.  But, such as it was, it added something fun to the show, and that's always a good thing.
