So the other day (I might have mentioned it), I had a pedicure. It was wonderful. Except for the ticklish part, it’s the best! I was relaxing, eyes half closed, when into my consciousness seeped the television. It was two evil witches scolding another witch for being too nice. Seems the nicer witch had a young child. (Now, I have to say, these women were not of child-bearing years. So am I to surmise that witches have babies at a much, and I mean much, older age?)
Anyway, the nice witch was named…are you sitting? Tabitha. Seriously. What creativity! And her daughter? Endora. I’m not lying. Though it might be the other way around. The kid might be Tabitha. But who cares really?
This soap opera has an entire thread about witches. Does anyone else think that is bizarre?
I had never heard of Passions before. Have you? It’s on network TV. Not that being on network means it’s any good, mind you. But seriously.
I used to watch General Hospital. Religiously. I remember Demi Moore as the reporter. The wedding of Laura and Luke. Stavros. Crisis after crisis. Affair after affair. I don’t know why I was drawn back in, day after day.
Recently, I saw GH on while I was at the gym or someplace. OMG. Monica. What the heck happened to Monica? She looked just awful – she clearly has had a lot of work done. Not in a good way, either. But I digress.
So GH was silly and out there and unrealistic in many ways. But this Passions takes it to another level.
I’m going to have to ask my media buyer friend what kind of ratings that show gets. Because I can’t believe many people would waste their time on that when there is plenty of better (notice I didn’t say good) crap on air all the time. And besides, now that there’s a Food Network, who needs anything else?
