I Do Not Remember This
Because if I did, this would've been discussed already. Long, long ago. A lot. I mean, did I know this back then? I did not. Because I would remember this.
I know I would remember that. I remember finding this man attractive, but in a "he's so haunted and such a fascinating character played by this actor who's brought so many layers to someone who's ostensibly just a bastard, so isn't that kind of sexy" sort of way. But not in this sort of way. I mean I think I get it. Present day One Life to Live is heavy on the hot-bodied men (generally with little-to-nothing to back that up in the substance department) and we see a lot more abs than we ever did back then. More importantly, Roger Howarth's Todd was never paraded as a sex symbol (even though he became one to the actor's own -- and many of our -- ambivalence) because a tremendous amount of his characterization was solely based on how incredibly repressed and, let's face it, fucked up he was about anything sex-related, both because of his own childhood and because of the heinous ways in which he'd used sex for violent means himself. So it was never about how hot he looked out of a shirt, though he may very well have. But, as I said, I DO NOT REMEMBER THIS. Because... I WOULD REMEMBER THAT.
And I'll wrap this up with four minor, unrelated thoughts:
1. I love Echo as a bad guy with attachments. "I know a thing or two... about a thing or two." She's such a dreadful person but not in an Eli/Mitch/Spencer sort of way. She's just that nasty, nasty woman who makes the least ethical choice at every turn and is such a necessity on soaps.
2. Oh my stars, someone call Blair. Send her an email. Bring her a candygram. Her son killed a lady. He's been arrested. Can she be in her story now, please?
3. Matthew woke up and talked!!
4. Why does Porn Guy Rick need Deanna in his skin flick so badly that he'll blackmail her for it? Unemployment is through the roof right now; he might want to turn on the news. I'm sure he could find someone who would do something crazy like take the job. (Also: WHO CARES.)
