Now that Tina and Viki are finally in scenes together, is anyone enjoying Tina's return a little more? What do you think could be done to make it better?
Quote:Now that Tina and Viki are finally in scenes together, is anyone enjoying Tina's return a little more? What do you think could be done to make it better? I'll be honest--I can't watch OLTL anymore. Between the train wreck of Todd and Marty and Tess with a bomb I'm spent. I would watch from my healing bed, but all the stories are just stinky.
To tell you the truth, I haven't been impressed.I wasn't watching the show when Andrea Evans was playing Tina in the past. The only Tina I have ever seen is Krista Tesreau's version because that's who was playing Tina on some Todd and Blair tapes I've got from the mid 90s. I actually loved KT's Tina, especially in scenes with Todd.I was willing to give AE's Tina a chance because I'd heard a lot of good things about her. But I haven't been able to warm up to her. At first I thought it was because of the Mendorra storyline and once she got back to Llanfair and her family she would be more tolerable. But if anything she's more annoying than before.I don't know...maybe she's just not my kind of character.
I adore AE and unfortunately her return was just badly written, I do however think that having her in scenes with Viki and the Buch's is the way to go and certainly more enjoyable.
As far as the scenes now, I have not watched OLTL in 3 weeks, I refuse to watch until the disgusting mess of a character they call Tess is gone. According to spoilers that should be after next week, until then, I will just have to continue catching my Jared and Natalie scenes on their fansites and the Viki and charlie scenes too. Now that I know Andrea, had scenes with Viki I will have to look those up on youtube too, it sucks that an amazing actress like Andrea came back and first got stuck with the Mendora garbage and then got stuck playing Tess' punching bag that must be hell.
Kicking her whole return off with the Mendorra disaster definitely didn't do her any favors!
I agree that AE return was bungled. To center her emotions on Sarah - a boring character if there ever was one - did her no favors. It was just poor timing to coincide her return with Erika Slezak's vacation. I they had worked together the whole time, we would be having different discussions.AE is IS Tina. KT was OK, but she did not have the campiness that is part of the character. Tina always thought she was larger than life, and that is what made the campiness fun, IMHO.
Also, wasn't there an actress that played Tina between Andrea & Krista. I could swear there was...I remember her being a gymnast or something. I think her name was Mindy or something. I think that was the Tina that brought David Vickers to town (bless her heart).
well i used to watch ae when she was tina and shewas one of my favorite characters she was always getting into troublebut it looks like they brought her back but her storyline is not strong enough the old tina would have gave tess a run for her money she would have stood up to her and fight and winso i am a little disapointed to say the least
