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?
