The Best and Worst of 2003
Since it's the official last week of 2003, we
decided to do a Best and Worst of 2003. We hope you all like
Gwen: Her acting has really improved since she's
come back to the role. Her miscarriage really brought out
the best in her acting ability.
Julian: Ben Masters proved that he can play
a good or bad character. He makes Julian multi-dimensional.
Gwen's miscarriage: We loved that
story. It really brought out the best in Gwen. We felt
sorry for her when she lost Sarah. Despite the fights she
had with Theresa, she handled herself like a lady. She
reacted the way most people would have. She also didn't go
crazy like Sheridan. Another good thing about this story is
it made us two-sided. We kept bouncing back and forth over
who was to blame for the miscarriage. It was also one of the
stories that showed movement.
Tabitha's pregnancy: She was the only one to
have a healthy baby. Of course her baby is half-human, but
she still survived.
Simone learns the truth: It was about time
Simone found out about Chad and Whitney. She was kept in the
dark for far too long. This also gave Simone a story
independent from Kay's story.
Gwen's miscarriage: This story was the best
tearjerker. It was really sad. We practically felt
Gwen's pain when she broke down and cried over Sarah's death.
Alistair is Charlie: This had to be the most
shocking moment in Passions history. It was not foreshadowed
at all that he was really Charlie. The writers were very
good to keep that spoiler under wraps.
Ivy walking: This was a long time
coming. It seemed as if Ivy was going to be in her
wheelchair forever. It's not realistic because we all know
that unfortunately, other people who are confined to a wheelchair
will not be that successful in walking that fast, but since Ivy
can walk in real-life, it was good to see her walking again.
Eve and Julian: They are the best non-couple
on the show. They got the chance to get closer this year.
They even had some stolen moments with each other. Eve
really brought out the best in Julian this year. He is
always there to listen to Eve's problems. He also sacrificed
himself to protect her. He even risked his life to save her
from falling out of a plane. That's more than we can say
about TC lately.
Gwen's fight with Theresa: We loved when
Gwen kicked Theresa's butt in the hospital. Even though the
fight was one-sided, it was still worth watching.
Jessica: She is the worst actress on the
show in our opinion. We know she just got on the sow a
little while ago, but this girl can't act. We hope in 2004,
she gets better. It's possible because we didn't really like
the way Gwen acted when she first got on the show, and look at her
John: Talk about needing acting
lessons. He could definitely benefit from acting
lessons. In most (if not all) of his scenes, people run
circles around him.
Jessica: She is the worst recast on the
Sheridan's kidnapping: This story was so
insufferable. It has to be the worst storyline in our
opinion. It lasted way too long in our opinion. All of
the near-misses were annoying. Sheridan could have been
saved countless times by Luis as well as herself. When we think of
how many times Luis was in Beth's house and didn't see Sheridan,
it was enough to make us scream. Then there was
Sheridan. Every time she tried to save herself, she kept
passing out. There were two things that disturbed us most
about this story. The first was Sheridan being attacked
while she was pregnant. The second was it brought out the
stupidity in Luis.
Beth: She had to have to worst pregnancy on
the show. She was carrying a bad of sugar and no one
(besides Gwen) noticed that she was faking her pregnancy.
Her sack of sugar ripped at the doctor's office and no one figured
out what she was doing.
Chad has a wife: This had to be the worst
reveal on Passions. This was out of character for
Chad. He was someone who believed in honesty (well he used
to), so for him not to tell Whitney about LaToya didn't make
sense. He also acted as if it was no big deal that he was
married to her. He treated LaToya as if she meant nothing to
Sheridan and Luis's useless connection:
Their so-called connection to each other didn't help Luis find
Sheridan any faster. He was in the same house where Sheridan
was kidnapped and he didn't feel it.
The real Dr. Culver's addition to the Shuis
story: His addition to the story was pointless because he
didn't do anything to push the story. He was supposed to prove
that Beth wasn't pregnant, but he didn't. She was worried for
nothing as usual.
David's illness: This was such an obvious
plot device because there was no mention of his illness before he
and Grace went away together. This was just a way for Sam to
catch them together. It didn't make sense that Grace didn't
call a doctor to help David when he was cold. She took it
upon herself to take her clothes off to give body heat. Of
course Sam was going to catch like that.
The "Hot" LA story: This story was
a huge disappointment. The writers made a big deal about this
story, but in our opinion, it was lackluster. It started out
okay because it was a break away from the Shuis/Beth/Antonio
story, but it ended up being a waste. It was supposed to be
a way to start a triangle between Whitney/Chad/Fox, but it ended
up being about Theresa/Ethan/Gwen. Chad and Whitney's story
was so forced with the introduction of Puff Dog and LaToya.
They only thing to come out of it was Chad and Whitney breaking
Antonio learns the truth: We were so excited
about him learning the truth, but it was such a letdown. We
wanted Sheridan or Luis to actually tell Antonio the truth.
We don't like how he had to overhear it. Also, Sheridan and
Luis didn't reunite after Antonio learned the truth.
Alistair being Charlie: Even though this is
listed under the Best of 2003, it was the most preposterous
story. It has too many plot holes. First, Alistair's
body completely changed while he was Charlie. Second, if
Alistair was Charlie, why was he willing to give the baby back to
Sheridan when he thought Beth betrayed him? Third, why did he
fantasize about being with Beth dressed as Charlie? Fourth,
why was he worried about Charlie getting busted when all he had to
do was take the mask off?
Luis and Miguel being fathers: Besides
Alistair, they are the worst fathers in Harmony. They barely
acknowledged their children unless they were sick. They were
both more concerned about Sheridan and Charity respectively.
Grace choosing David: This was the worst
choice. She was willing to abandon the man that she's been
with for over 20 years for a man that she barely knows. This
is the same woman who practically begged Sam to make their
marriage work when he saw her with David.
TC: His character was assassinated this
year. He kept picking numerous fights with Eve, Chad, and
Julian. You would never know that he loved Eve from the way
he treated her. He was constantly blaming her when Whitney
went to LA. He has also been falling for Liz's plans to
Edna: She was the most useless
character. She had plenty of opportunities to sell Beth out
and tell the truth, but she didn't. She lectured Beth about
telling the truth. She should have known that wasn't going to do
any good. It doesn't do any good for her to know the truth
if she's not going to say anything.
Sheridan turning crazy: She is definitely
the victim of the year. Something's always happening.
Now everyone is convinced that she is crazy. The ironic thing is,
she's telling the truth about "Beth" and Luis's
baby. He really is her baby.
