Titan has had how many CEOs over the past year, and not one of them saw fit to fix this horrible Seinfeld-looking logo for Titan TV?
And under whose watch did Titan hire the MS Paint-loving design team from TruVista magazine?
While I’m on the subject of the ever-changing regimes at Titan: I can’t help but think about the poor H.R. department there, as well as the people who have to do Kate and everyone else’s taxes. Where do you even begin?! Those H.R. folks must have paperwork coming out of their ears. And Kate alone must have 50 W-2s for the past year.
This Tate kidnapping story isn’t exactly good, but the trappings of it are far more entertaining to me — and more in-line with the kind of show I enjoy watching — than most of what we’ve had in the past year. Suddenly, we have Victor and Maggie, Paul and John, and Shawn and Belle rolled into a story that centers on Brady and Theresa. I’ve had just about enough of Maggie’s hysterical caterwauling about Summer, but this all feels much more Higley/TomSell in execution than Griffith. I genuinely love how they’re using Shawn and Belle, the sight of whom was causing me to break out in hives as recently as three weeks ago. This version of Belle feels so much truer to who the character should be, and this is some long-overdue interaction between Shawn and another of his cousins.
And I’ll take 100 Tate kidnapping stories over that execrable Wednesday episode centering on Rafe. I’m all for breaking form with these singularly focused standalone episodes, but this one offered absolutely no information and felt like it was as long as the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. Rafe feels guilty that he landed Hope at death’s door? Um, how about the fact that this entire thing has happened because a) she shot a man in cold blood and roped Rafe into assisting with the cover-up and b) she thought it was a good idea to pursue a romance with the shady, unstable man whose son raped her daughter? Ugh. I hated it so much that I’m not even going to bother going back to grab screenshots, but if you missed it, trust me: you’re lucky and I’m jealous.
