At first, when I saw the more mature Brenda, I was encouraged by her return even though I knew it would lead to the 9 millionth reunion of the been there, done that Brenda & Sonny. Guza & company managed to ruin that for me, but not in the way you'd expect. I knew Sonny & Spinelli would be gaga over her & even Max & Milo. But, even Dante has a romantic past with her & is apparently still under her spell, proving like father, like son. Who didn't see that coming? (Yawn). As usual, GH has to overdo it, telling the audience you MUST love Brenda. Look at how she affects every man in Port Charles. She MUST be the most beautiful woman you've ever seen or your eyes aren't working.
Uh...Nooo. I see just fine, thank you. Yes, VM-G is a beautiful woman, but I know it'll shock Guza & co. to know that everyone's interpretation of beautiful is different. I guarantee there are viewers out there who look at her & see ugly. Probably not alot of them, but they're out there. I personally don't think she's any more beautiful than any other woman on the show. As a matter of fact, I think Sam is much better looking. Maybe not as interesting a character as Brenda, but she is gorgeous. Again, everyone's interpretation of beauty is different.
The writers missed the boat on something else. By making every female on the show feel like yesterday's oatmeal because all the men are stupified by Brenda's great luminescence, they're also alienating fans who've only started watching in the years since Brenda left & have built attachments to the female characters they're used to seeing. It's especially annoying to see these women, who have men dripping off of them like water after a shower, feeling so insecure & behaving badly because of it.
I really thought the 13 year old boys who've been writing for the show all summer would've stopped once they went back to school. I do hope the adults will take over soon & start writing something that people from high school on up can enjoy as well.
