Aren't They Just... Adorable?
I'm gonna come out and say it. I love this show. Love it. Total fangirl, or fangurl, or whatever they call it. Wednesday? Are you kidding me? I cried, I laughed, I... it's not fair. If Todd and Tea hadn't been on that episode, I'd say they should submit it for an Emmy. Or, like, entrance into Heaven.
I couldn't possibly care less about Markko and his father, but somehow I loved them. Bo and David? Father and son? I'm dying here. And I cannot say enough about Eddie Alderson and what a tremendous actor he's turned out to be -- he can hold his own with Hilary Smith, Robert Woods, and Tuc Watkins. That is no small thing. They put on an acting master class on a regular basis. And we only had the Morascos one or two days this week.
Also, how cute was this:
I have this new plan. It's clear that Jared's days are numbered, and I think Scott Clifton is the most mis-used actor on this show, so... Natalie and Schuyler? Schutalie? He would up Melissa Archer's game, and he needs to stay far away from the only storyline he's in.
Okay, so let's get down to business. Todd and Tea were on Wednesday's episode. And Thursday's. And Friday's. This is going to drive me to drink (I say, pretending I need an excuse).
Todd and Tea are not cute. I cannot fathom what the writers want us to feel watching these wretched people be sweet with each other. I don't hate them. I like Tea in bitchy-lawyer mode, I like Todd in tortured-soul mode. We all know what her secret is. It's tedious. Also tedious is this idea that Blair is pathetic or desperate, or that Tea is the love of Todd's life -- she's too smart for that.
Having Viki be her BFF is a pretty big clue that we, as viewers, are supposed to think she's just terrific. Tea's not terrific. Neither is Todd. I think I almost puked when Marty just had to take a picture of her son all dressed up... for her two-time rapist's wedding. Really? "Oh, my little boy's all grown up!" And what was all that with Starr talking about how Todd "chose" Tea? He didn't. Blair left him. She was not available to him for the choosing. God bless Kassie DePaiva, one of the most underappreciated actresses alive, because she can sell anything. Anything. She deserves better. Because I've watched soaps before, I know that Ross will take Dorian's money and romance Blair, but ultimately fall for her anyway, and there will be an explosive scene during sweeps month where Blair finds out that he was paid.
On the bright side, the child of two rapists (look in the back):Cameron Webber from GH to hang out with Sam Manning.
Are we supposed to worry about Todd and Tea? I can't tell. I want to consult some folks in Port Charles and see if they can run over and off them. Eliminate them. "Take care of" them.
Todd could not wear a button-down shirt to his wedding?
WHAT WILL HAPPEN? Do we care? How AWFUL will it be when they find out their marriage isn't legal... that'll show 'em. Or (and this is just speculation, but it's hard to not see it coming) when we find out that Todd and Tea have a kid together? Boy, Todd will be... mad? I hate these people. And I really do not want to.
So, I know there's something else I should address as a Serial Drama guest blogger, and that is one Mr. Terrell Tilford (Dr. Greg Evans).
