A Case of the Mondays?
Maybe it's indeed a case of the Mondays, but I had so little patience for One Life to Live today that I could barely formulate thoughts or criticisms and only mustered up a series of pressing questions.
Did they change the font of the credits? Is Inez wearing a semi-cute outfit? Is it appropriate to propose to your new girlfriend in front of your parents, twelve seconds after you've introduced them? And do we get pouty with our mother when she thinks we're moving a little fast by marrying someone we met two weeks ago? When one is trying to seduce someone else, does one refer to them by the nickname "Chuckles" -- is this seductive? So, Charlie kind of sucks right now, doesn't he? Isn't it ridiculous to get offended when you've incredibly rudely put someone on the spot by proposing to them a few weeks after meeting them, in public, and they turn you down? Why does Joey have to be such a chump when we, the audience, so desperately cling to his refreshing presence in the face of Fords' Life to Live? How awesome is John Wesley Shipp for pronouncing "Rappaport" with a silent "t" at the end, and also for so relishing the lunacy that is the way his role is written? How idiotic are we supposed to believe Bo is for thinking Nora would text him such a thorough and personal potentially-marriage-ending message?
Okay, seriously, why are they writing Joey as if he has lost his damn mind? When did Robin Strasser get so darn cute? How amazing is Queen Victoria, pronouncing "premature" with a short "e" sound? Who does that? Why is Marty talking to a picture of Cole as if he's dead and not just chilling out somewhere waiting for visiting hours and, most likely, beating the crap out of someone in a senseless rage? Did someone actually refer to Inez as an "evil genius" -- I mean genius? Evil? That makes her two words more interesting than the two I'd use (Blandy McBlanderson), so are we in store for a treat, or just poor misunderstood Inez, behaving badly solely to rescue her GROWN sons?
Why don't they offer a naptime in the middle of One Life to Live? Is there some way we can get a daily rest hour established? Didn't Aubrey turn down Joey's proposal, so maybe he can stop yelling at his parents? Did the way Eddie ran his hand across Nora's face make anyone else's arm hair stand on end? Yikes! And seriously? Bo would accuse Nora, by text, of acting like their teenager? Why did Marty re-wrap the "gift" for John with a white ribbon again? On what planet would Bo believe that Nora would text him that he should sleep with Inez? How many times can I show incredulity that there's a whole storyline about Bo and Nora based on texting? Was there any chance Joey wouldn't be holding the engagement ring out just in time for Kelly to see it and misinterpret? As adorable as Dorian is, was her wig a little on the mullet side of things today?
And finally: what? They're back to showing scenes from the next episode? I'm not insane, right? (Okay, that's debatable, so I just mean in relation to this one particular topic.) They just started this today, right?
Does anyone have any answers? What questions do you have?
Is Destiny out?
