this week is what the writers are doing to our favorite characters. I
have never seen a soap so intent on character assassination where their most
beloved characters are concerned, and it's really bugging me. I guess
knowing that the show is being cancelled in favor of !!!!!!!!YET ANOTHER
HOUR OF THE TODAY SHOW!!!!!! might explain it, but still, it's a rotten
thing to do to those of us who've stuck with the show all these years.
Now, I have
to get something off my chest before I go any further, so here goes.
Four hours of Today? They really think that's going to boost
viewership? Are they out of their everloving minds? It was bad
enough when they stuck the third hour on, filling it with the most useless,
boring drivel known to mankind, but now they want to give us another one?
WHY?!?!?!?!? It makes no sense to me, but then, very little this
network does makes sense any more. Any wonder it's lost it's first
place standing? I don't know about your local station, but mine gives
us paid commercials most of the daytime hours, with local news at noon and
then Days, Passions, and Dr. Phil to fill up the rest, so why can't they get
rid of one of those hours instead of Passions? I'm so sick of the
whole thing I could scream!
to the subject of this opinion piece. Why have the writers turned
Sheridan, Fox, and Kay into unrecognizable caricatures of themselves?
We know they've dumbed down Ethan for years now, turned Gwen into a weak
sister of her original self, and made Theresa into an even bigger idiot than
she started out being, but to turn these people into some kind of evil
monsters is unforgivable. And they're blaming it on Tabitha's original
curse! Scraping the bottom of the barrel, are we, guys?
curse was on the people of Harmony, making them unable to be happy in love,
not on the Cranes to turn them into monsters whenever their hearts were
broken, so when did that change? It didn't. Now, however, we're
supposed to believe that it was ever thus, even tho none of the Cranes ever
exhibited such a reaction before, except Alistair, if we're to believe that.
Now we have Fox, the Prince Charming of Daytime Land, turning into a lying,
scheming monster who'll do or say anything to keep the woman he loves.
Where was all this evil when he lost Whitney, I'd like to know? Wasn't
his heart broken then? It makes no sense, I tell you.
Sheridan....what the heck has come over her? She was our Crown
Princess, Queen of the Fairytales and Ruler of Our Hearts, and now she's
evil personified? No, that simply doesn't cut it. I mean, if she
was going to be evil, wouldn't it have been when Luis was with Beth, or when
she lost Marty, or one of the myriad times when Luis "died"?
They wait until she's supposedly happily married to Chris, when she no
longer wants anything to do with Luis, to make her become infected by the
curse? Why? And what the heck, is she Fancy's rapist or what?
How would that work, I'd like to know? And just what was she doing to
Luis yesterday that involved a knockout shot, a condom, and some moaning and
daydreaming of Fancy on Luis' part? That's just sick!
course, has reverted back to his evil self, thanks to Eve's turnabout on TC,
and that's ruined him, too. I loved him as the good Julian, and having
him back to this horrible, vengeful, evil scum is heartbreaking. The
good guy is still in there, we get glimpses of him occasionally, but it's
the evil one that's taken over and I can't stand it. If he was going
to turn evil, why wasn't it the first time he broke up with Eve? From
what they've told us of their back story he was already a chip off Daddy's
block when they were together, there was no sudden turn to the Dark Side
back then. Why is it happening now?
Kay....could she be any more of a slut now? How many times has she
jumped from Fox's bed to Miguel's and back again? And now she marries
Fox, spends part of her wedding night with him, then spends the rest of it
making love to Miguel on the beach! I tell you, she's lost every bit
of good sense she ever had. And don't try to tell me it's Fox's fault,
since it all started with her letting Miguel sweet talk her into his bed in
the first place. She's disgusting, that's all I know, and no amount of
turning Fox evil will change that. And just how stupid is she to dump
Fox, who loves her and only wants to do the best for her and her daughter,
for the guy who couldn't have cared less about her or their daughter until
he saw she was doing very well with Fox? Stupid, that's all it is.
I've been a
Kay backer since the show began, because I understood what made her
desperate enough to do the stupid, hurtful things she did, but no more.
This is just disgusting, and I can't for the life of me find a good reason
for her doing what she's doing. Yes, she had amnesia for a while (or
did she?) and Miguel took advantage of that by raping her while he was
supposed to be helping her, but once she got her memory back she should have
realized what he'd done and kicked him completely out of her life.
Nope, she turned on Fox and tore his heart out, shredded it, and force-fed
it back to him instead. Way to go, Kay. And way to mess up a
I guess it
could be the writer's way of making us so sick of these people that we won't
mind when the show goes off the air, and maybe that's right, but it isn't
the right way to go about it. They need to be ending all the mysteries
they've fed us over the years instead. As for how they'll end the
show, instead of having the curse broken and everyone finally happy with
their true loves, the only way they can explain all this carnage and end the
show on a happy note is to have someone wake up from a horrible nightmare
and find everything the way it should be. I just wish we, the viewers,
could wake up from the nightmare the writers have made of this show, and do
it soon. It's making me sick, that's all I know.
