Now, let's see. What would be something over the top, dramatic and just plain kookie on soaps?! CONJOINED TWINS! Hey, a girl came dream, right?!
The theme is TWINS: Jason and Franco (paternal) and Connie and Kate (mental). Also my TWIN headache with this show lately. Sit back, relax and join Chang and Eng for this week's Sunday Surgery. (don't forget to scrub up!)
Oh, such high hopes I had for this show. The first month I was in heaven with the new writing and direction. There was so much more movement, story weaving and excitement I couldn't stand it! Now? Eh. It's way WAY better than it was--but lately it's not making my eyes sparkle.
I'll start with what DOES make me happy. HEATHER! Yep...very scene she's in is just fun and unexpected. Her snark, her fun looks and her "wub" of Steven Lars is just priceless. No matter where she is, you know it will be interesting. Jason's face talking to her? ahh!! With Ewan? Well, I even liked that scene.
Anna and John were good, mainly because Finola is just awesome. We know that. Hell, she even got John to go visit Natalie!! WOW. Too bad we can't see it.
Lulu and Luke...Luke was back to his old self--none of that sad-sack weird guy I didn't know.. Liked he and Lulu brainstorming about Ronnie. Guza and Wolf acted like he was never on the right side of the law. Um, yah he sure was. He totally helped WSB out all the time.
ON To "The Other"
Johnny and Starr-- I like the idea of a connection. I think I like the music angle. I think. Jury's out on this. Just don't show her "Jail Bait" video. I would like to see Porno Rick show up at some point. Maybe at Vaughn's!?
ConKate-- DAMN. I just can't. The mirror sheeze was bad-- (the way her dress fit was even worse). The fact that Sonny's so STUPID he can't see it is maddening. Wake up! The whole town knows she's talking in some weird fake accent-- everyone BUT YOU!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: How the hell can't I pick the ConKate Cake Murder? It was everything a soapy camp is made of. The cake is so ugly too. Love the finger-lick and Cray-Cray eyes the end. OTT Acting and the Music? Priceless!
BIG RUNNER UP: Epiphany and Patrick. LOVE this friendship. This is what Cartini can do with characters. Patrick was just despondent. Kudos to Jason Thompson. Loved Ephiphany's line "I'll give you a day to fall apart, then it's back to work".
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: The MIRROR scene. OH my Gosh..so much wrong with this. Just hated it-- plus I was totally distracted by ConKate's ill-fitting suit. When you notice stuff like that, the 'intensity" of the action just isn't there! Her pounding was hilarious. (Not to mention the lipstick)
RUNNER UP: For totally different reasons--the JaSam scene where Sam tells Jason about the baby and DNA test. Who wrote this? I'm so tired of women begging for mercy even after they are the ones that have been violated. IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT SAM! One could argue about the whole "secret" DNA test but come on--- was I supposed to feel badly for JASON?! Because if I was, I sure as hell didn't. I wanted to bash his face in for the most part! Now, Kelly and Steve acted the HEY out of the material. I'm not faulting them for that at all. This is all crappy writing, imo.
So, are you feeling the need to turn in daily? I still am-- things like Heather throwing the milkshake and the cake murder keep me watching. Other things? Like I said, not making me tingle. I am into the McBam (Sam, McBain) story because they are just so damn sexy together. Even if it's an "underground unholy" thing? I'm there!!
