All That Junk Inside That Trunk

First of all, I need to tell everyone that after the punny title for this post popped into my head, I felt compelled to listen to the Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps,” and I honestly have no idea how we, as a society, allowed that to be a thing.

Now onto the show, which is slightly more refined than that song.

The writing for Serena has to be an inside joke, right? She could not give fewer fucks about hanging out with Eric or Melanie if it doesn’t get her closer to that statue. Eric telling her he didn’t want to go to lunch if they were going to have to talk about the statue was amazing. What is in this damn thing?! I’m crossing my fingers that it isn’t a flash drive containing some important/ridiculous information, or it’s just going to extend this whole thing for months longer once Ciara or Marlena or whoever else gets their paws on said flash drive.

Also, what’s up with Father of the Year Millennium Daniel letting his toddler bop around the house with a statue? I know the writers have a tenuous grasp on the things that fascinate children (Exhibit A: Ciara becoming obsessed with envelopes), but shouldn’t someone be concerned that this little mute child is going to break the statue and injure himself?

    Marlena with a flash drive again? That would be fun. She was so kooky about that other flash drive, and then the time when she treid to use that recording device to record her conversation with Chyka.. I wish we had more scenes of her huffing and puffing. Hopefully this means that once Serena gets the statue, she can just leave town immediately since she obviously doesn’t even care about Eric (so much for that “love story”, eek!).

    In other news, Parker actually spoke today! He said “Daddy did you bring my toy?” I don’t think I’ve ever heard him speak before!

    • mykleraus Says:

      I will never, ever get tired of Marlena huffing and puffing and being all overwhelmed. Dee Hall goes SO over-the-top. It’s wonderful.

      There was one random episode where Parker was speaking a lot, a while back, and it was really cute. He clearly is usually too embarrassed to be on-camera (I would be if I were on this show, too, kid!).

  2. underyourwing Says:

    i think that’s enough said out of the kid for the rest of time….

  3. Andie Says:

    “Drop Dead Fred” hurry up and wrap up this insipid s/l and send Serena the Sea Cow off to another continent quick! As far as Parker, he is played by twins; one twin is fairly responsive and boisterous, the other looks quirkier and ignores everyone. I think Wednesday’s episode was the first time Parker has spoken in a complete sentence–pretty sad bc he’s almost 6.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Oh, duh. Of course it’s twins. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it (because I’m dumb). There is DEFINITELY one who does not ever want to look at the other actors or say any lines.

      • Andie Says:

        Nah your not dumb, I only remember the utilization of twins for infants/young kids from watching Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen on Full House. I suppose it’s so they can get around child labor laws and kids getting ornery/tired.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I think they tend to do it with little ones on this show — Johnny was twins, and the dopey little Will with the big ears as a toddler was twins, and I know Arianna is, too.

      • underyourwing Says:

        at least these guys were not as annoying as that baby they got from ”babies for sale cheap” when Chloe has whose ever baby…..that baby drove me nuts because he was SO fascinated with all the lights and wires and shit above the actors all he ever did was look UP…..it was just SO LAME. they really need to do way way better getting kind and babies….WAY. and in closing
        may i say goo goo gaa gaa wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Ahahahaha! Was that baby Parker?

      • underyourwing Says:

        YES!!! Peeping Parker shows you where MY head is at lately… i can’t keep all this shit straight….like that Dan dude who sometimes posts……. i faint half way thru his specific detailed to the nth degree of the 50 years of every person and every episode of DOOL………i don’t know how he does it….guess it’s a hobby?

      • mykleraus Says:

        Oh, I appreciate that stuff! I have the same OCD brain for the details of this show. I wish my mind cared enough to hang onto more meaningful info…

      • underyourwing Says:

        i can barely hang onto my personal life meaningful info much less DOOLS…..then again I either have very little….or too much….
        OCD is not our friend……..xo

    • Dylan Says:

      Serena the Sea Cow LOL. What is with that woman? I guess we are just led to assume that she is some secret spy, working for this “Navidad” woman with the creepy voice and semi-vampire-like face. I just have NO idea where they are trying to go with this “story”!

  4. fluffysmom Says:

    Maybe this storyline was instrumental in the head writer changes. Why am I supposed to care if Serena switches the statues? I only care if it means a swift end to this dumb storyline. How long until Parker breaks the statue?

    • mykleraus Says:

      I have to think that it was. With the 1-2-3 flops of Tammy Sue, Paige, and now Serena, I’m not surprised Tomlin & Whitesell were let go. They’ve not done well with launching their own stuff since Kristen, Nick, and Sami cleared out.

      • Andie Says:

        Amen to that. 😃 There seems to be a complete change of the guard with exception of KC. Lisa De Cazotte was let go just last week who was at the helm or AP of three ships as they sunk in the ’90s and ’00s respectively: Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, and Passions. I’m trying to be optimistic about future s/l and new/returning chatacters because after all, it can’t get much worse and convoluted.


  5. Keep in mind, the producers have to find twins for babies/ young children. Often those kids don’t want to be there. Back in the days when the show had rehearsals, the babies/kids would have time to get comfortable with their adult counterparts. But now, they are forced on set, with no rehearsal, and often in a very high-paced stressed situations. It’s harder on the actors to shoot this way, and much harder on the younger children who don’t really understand what is happening.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Good point. It has to be really disorienting for those kids.

      • underyourwing Says:

        the so called producers need to be checked big time, if they kids do not wanna be there bigger check for their stupid parents..

        ..at the least its not like the mickey and judy days where speed and downers were given to underagers to keep their tiny asses working napping working napping wash rinse repeat…..

        i am with WC Fields tho : ‘I like children. If they’re properly cooked.’

      • mykleraus Says:

        It’s so tough with the child actors, because sometimes they THINK they want to do it, but it’s the parents pulling the strings. You can tell kids like the girl who plays Ciara and the twins who played Johnny are natural performers and love hamming it up, though.

      • underyourwing Says:

        oh yes Sierra…..the lil Diva….if the show lasts any story line with her will be explosive……i wanna smack her but you just wait…..the shit will fly and she will be the one hurling it. !

      • mykleraus Says:

        I really want them to let this Ciara grow up on the show. She’s hilarious. She’ll be the next Sami!

      • underyourwing Says:

        she is way too talented for them to replace her…….then again how old is she? 8? 9? we need her to be like 16,17 !

      • mykleraus Says:

        She’s probably like 9-10, I’d guess, yeah. She’d be a perfect character to age up (and give Hope more to do), but you know they’d turn her into some vapid scheming slut and lose all the fun of the current portrayal.
