ABC’s Kit-o-magic

I posted the comments quoted below in responsible to this: “Serial Drama” blog. I thought I’d post it here for those who haven’t ventured over there yet. Glad to know I’m not alone in being bothered by the excessive make up used to ‘transform’ Not-Emly into Rebecca Shaw… HA!

What’s that about Remily’s make up? Don’t you know that it’s part of ABC daytime’s kit-o-magic? Smoky gray eyes turn NL’s Emily into Rebecca, thick black glasses turn OLTL’s Jessica/Tess into Bess, AMC’s Ryan removes his shirt and we’re not supposed to notice that he’s still an ***. ABC, character transformations… as superficial as the scripts.

I actually posted a blog commenting that paint drying was more interesting than watching most of GH. Now the Nik/Remily scenes. Freudian scriptwriting? Poor GH writers.

Is the last paragraph confusing to you? If so then you’ve probably spent more of your time watching something other than GH, like I have. There is a posted clip at SD of Remily and Prince Nikolas painting a room. Sweet irony… watching paint dry… <sigh> You just can’t make this stuff up!
To that I could add that:
1 – Eyeglasses make you ‘smart’ and even” geekier” if you wear them with tape patching the middle or sides.
2 – Scowling makes you ‘thoughtful’.

3- Black T-shirts, denim, and leather jackets make you

  • Hot
  • Mysterious
  • Dangerous
  • All of the above
4 – Hair slicked back makes you
  • Hot
  • Mysterious
  • Dangerous
  • All of the above
The list goes on and on! Oh sure, all soaps do it, but ABC takes prop-acting to a completely different level!
