Have you ever wanted to visit or talk to your favorite character? Not the actor or actress but the character they play.
Think about how often you yell at the tv about something. I can think of several favorite characters from books, movies, and tv. I have always like Gone With The Wind, I would love to talk to Scarlet O’Hara, not the movie Scarlet but the novel character. She was strong and feminine all at the same time. Truly a women ahead of her time.
I have seen some great movies but part of me would want to talk to Princess Leah and ask her what is up with that hair…I mean really now. There are so many great characters in so many great movies.
The other day I actually got stuck watching some daytime TV while getting my nails done. I have not watch a soap opera since…wow I can’t really remember it may have been when I was pregnant with Joey. The funny thing is the plots are still the same. Everyone is still sleeping with everyone else, they hate each other, they are suing each other, cat fights, you name it and it was there in the 20 minutes that I was stuck watching. Sometimes they make you want to reach into the tv and smack them.
What really amazes me about daytime tv is that the plot never changes only the characters. It doesn’t matter what channel you are on either. I would rather watch game shows. Speaking of game shows before the soap came on The Price is Right was on…now there was no Bob Barker but Drew Carey but the audience still looked like they were back in the day. The only difference was the host and the prizes were modern but even the audiences clothes looked like they were from the late 70’s.
I saw that a friend of a friend had posted a comment that daytime tv sucks your brain cells out and I can certainly see why.
