I decided today, in part of my ongoing quest to be a better, less judgmental, more serene person, that I am going to totally give Jamie Luner a chance to grow into the role of Liza without me making snide comments about how Marcy Walker is the REAL Liza, or how there must be something off about her because she's friends with Charles Pratt. I mean, the woman was on Melrose Place AND Just The Ten of Us AND all kinds of Lifetime movies. These things have brought so much joy to my life that I think it's only fair to actually give her a chance, and not in the half-hearted way I usually give people chances, but an actual, real chance. I mean, Cindy Lubbock alone gives her a fair amount of street cred as far as I'm concerned.
BUT--and there's always a but when it comes to All My Children--the show is making it almost impossible for me to go into this Liza recast without being completely jaded.
