« I Need Some Synonyms For "Annoying" | Main | Our Column in the 3/3 Issue of Soap Opera Digest »

February 24, 2009

Oh, Silver Fox. Never Change!

I am cold, and I am tired, and I am cranky, and I have "Touch My Body" stuck in my head on endless repeat, which is bad enough, except that I don't know any of the words, and it's just a garbled mess (are there actual words to that song, or is it just Mariah Carey trilling gibberish?) in my head nonstop, so obviously, I am not in a good place right now and I don't have the heart to take on the piece of EPIC BABY AND BUTTERFLY INFUSED FAIL that was the ending of today's All My Children right now, although I will take it on eventually because crap of that magnitude needs to be publicly humiliated.

It is at times like these that I wish Adam Chandler were a real person so he could be a guest blogger and eviscerate it in that way he eviscerates things:

Adam: Amanda has no heart, half a brain, and schizophrenia in her DNA. And that's the woman you want to entrust with Babe's sweet, gentle, loving little boy?

It was way harsh, made even more so because it followed fond recollections of Babe and implying that Babe is somehow greater and more trustworthy than someone else is pretty much the worst insult in the world, but the man has a way with words, you have to give him that.

Comments

Quite honestly, throughout Adam's whole Amanda-bashing, I was kind of confused. I mean quite honestly, with everything he was saying he could have been talking about Babe!
You know, the REAL Babe, not the Mother Teresa everyone all of a sudden seems to think she is.

The Babe-propping on this show needs to stop. Preferably ASAP.

Actually, I suppose I should fix that to:

"...everyone all of a sudden seems to think she WAS," seeing as she's dead and all. (Though you'd never know it with the way they go on about her...)

Trilling Gibberish is Mariah Carey's Indian name right ? :-)

What would Reese's Indian name be?

Lesbian NOT, Gay for a Minute or Manipulative Bitch?

Or Babe's Indian name?

Evil that Stands with her Moron Mommy, Babynapping Saint?

Damn Kevin Costner for starting this.

I thought the comments made Adam seem delusional and suggested he knows nothing about his family. JR, Adam's golden boy, has half a brain. Hayley, Adam's beloved daughter, had such serious mental problems that she believed she was her own mother. And that's not even getting into the many heartless acts committed by JR, Skye, or Adam himself. It was a very cheap shot which didn't seem like Adam to me.

Well, Chad it wouldn't be much of a soap if your own family's shortcomings prevented you from bashing someone else. Also, I think Adam is fairly clear on his children's limiations, JR's utter unAdamness is the reason his Daddy has to protect him from another lying baby mama.

Oops, I meant Carl.

"Well, Chad it wouldn't be much of a soap if your own family's shortcomings prevented you from bashing someone else."

No, but they do make the person who does the bashing look like a hypocrite or someone who suffers from serious memory loss. The comments really annoyed me, they just felt like they were forced into his mouth. Especially the one about schizophrenia in her DNA. Adam had a daughter with that DNA. He never trashed Hayley as a crazy person, even when she showed far more mental strain than Amanda ever has.

I miss the RealAdam that hated Babe. But then I miss all the Realcharacters that hated Babe - with perfectly good reason...

"Adam had a daughter with that DNA. He never trashed Hayley as a crazy person, even when she showed far more mental strain than Amanda ever has."

Actually doesn't Hayley doesn't share the "schizophrenia" DNA with Amanda. Adam isn't the one with memory issues because is referring to Amanda's mother, the notorious and glorious Janet Green. Hayley and Amanda are related through Amanda's father, Hayley's uncle the very uncrazy Trevor Dillon, but the crazy all on the Green genes.

"Actually doesn't Hayley doesn't share the "schizophrenia" DNA with Amanda. Adam isn't the one with memory issues because is referring to Amanda's mother, the notorious and glorious Janet Green. "

Yes, I know that, the memory helped me out enough to remember the name of Amanda's mother. Thanks though. But since Arlene was Trevor's sister, I still think it's all part of the same DNA. Arlene also wasn't the sanest person herself.

It was just bad dialogue from someone who probably doesn't even know Adam has a daughter named Hayley.
