The Great Fluke Debate
I have been thinking about what some of you said about TG playing "Fluke" and that he's actually liking it and I'm wrong.
BUT..I just don't see it! LOL.. The character to me is so boring. No life--nothing. Why not give him SOMETHING? When "Duke" was "Faison" at least IB played the subtle differences-- and his masked character was interesting to watch.
This wooden character is.. just lifeless. I get it's not supposed to be Luke..but if you're PLAYING
Luke to convince other's you ARE Luke--why act the TOTAL opposite? And why, save Ned does NO one really notice, other then to cock their head once and awhile and go: huh. Weird. The Kiki angle? What is THAT about? WHY would whomever this is perv out over her to the point that he'd jeopardize himself?
I get the feeling Tony doesn't like the story--or really hated Luke so much he's just acting like this to make this character SO unappealing it's his FU to the fans. Maybe he's happy as hell. I can't tell--and therein lies the problem.
The story has been a let down and I was one that thought it would be awesome when it first started. I do think they needed to give more clues to what was really going on. Is he Victor? Bill? Some other drug cartel guy from the past? Was Luke really a huge Mob Boss on the side when he'd leave Port Charles for his "vacations"?? The time in Miscavage just took his personality away?
The problem is that the story is so choppy..then hurried..then left alone..then hurried I don't care. I mean, I don't care to the point that it doesn't even matter who gets shot today. Julian having his family as sitting ducks is beyond stupid.
I do agree when this all started it was great to watch and I did think that Tony was liking it. Now? Zzzzzzzzz sleep inducing.
So..predict who gets plugged today. Lucas? He's not been on in ages and all of a sudden shows up hitting on Felix. Sam? She's so happy right now..time for a bullet wound. Alexis? Will her boobalage save her? Is the hitman a good shot? We know how that goes. LOL.
Poor Rafe. Too bad he wasn't there--he would have been a good one to get it.
PS. I figure that giant drug exchange had to happen about 8pm at night-- on Pier 54. Pfft.
