AMC: New Chandler Maid Cast

Let me guess: she got the job because she is a former Disney channel actress.

This sounds like a redux the Colby/Sean/Sydney (Winifred's niece) thing from 2006. The difference will be that McTavish immediately saw that that material was not going over well and took steps to rectify it by minimizing Sydney's role, and focusing on Colby and Sean's issues with their families. That turned it around.

D&D, in contrast, will forge ahead with their instant-triangle regardless of reaction because they seem to have absolutely no idea what is and what is not working. (Or they just don't care.)

Any other writer would have made at least some effort to make Asher even remotely interesting by now. They seem to have no idea that there is a problem there.

Any other writer would have moved Caleb into another mix of characters by now and given up on the Erica pairing. It's been almost a year and Donna Swajeski is still, in the most SOW, raving about how great Caleb and Caleb/Erica are and how excited the fans must be that Caleb is going to stand firm and fight for Erica and that he isn't going anywhere.

David Canary is leaving? No problem, we've just cast some guy around the same age. Instant patriarch! Problem solved.

Susan Lucci is going to be gone all summer? That's okay, we'll fill the void by using Brittany Allen more because Marissa is equally enthralling.

I'm a bit older than Colby, but since I'm jobless, it's been suggested I look into being a maid. So yeah, I guess they come young.

Eh, I think she's just another character who will be gone by summer. I'm not going to sweat it to much.

    • I think we're nearer the tipping point where SCOTUS will have to finally be overhauled, tbh. It will take time but it's rattled the general public.
    • Was she up for the part Julia Stiles got, I wonder? Dexter's equally crazy mate? I'd assume so. Claudia and Johnny were weirdly intimate together from the jump (and again, I felt it suited the very gothic characters) so I'm not sure I fully agree with that complaint, though I can understand not wanting it to be made more textual. I've seen too many women like Sarah Brown dismissed as crazy or irrational over the years only to be vindicated through the passage of time. So I'm sure Sarah has a lot of very valid and true complaints about her ordeals with her ex, some of her work at GH, etc. But I'm not sure what she wanted Jackie or others to do, or about what instance specifically.
    • I've seen several people suggest this is to save face for some terrible rulings to come. I don't doubt it, although I don't want to take for granted that we're near the tipping point where SCOTUS will have enough Alito types that they won't even give these crumbs. I wonder if Roberts, always so anxious and angst-ridden about public perception of the Court, finally feels foolish for boasting about the end of racism when he struck down most of the VRA. 
    • Per what I can recollect (as it was late and honestly some fans really are tone deaf when talking to her), it went like this: SJB was up for auditioning for a role on Dexter, and Guza heard about what the character was and over a weekend completely came up with the idea of Claudia wanting to do "inappropriate" things with Johnny, and this upset her. So she went to Frons and talked about her previous experiences at ABC, et al, and they refused to change the storyline, so she decided to leave. This, on top of what Scott McKinsey did, is what soured her experience as Claudia, despite wanting to be there in that role. As for Nancy Lee Grahn & Vanessa Marcil, she's upset neither spoke out in support of her, but she also understands why some (like Grahn) cannot because they have their own families to support and think about. She also mentioned how she and Jacklyn Zeman fell out 20 years ago because she asked Zeman to support her and her claims, and Zeman declined. But that Zeman reached out a bit ago and she chose to forgive and just embrace Zeman, despite still wanting an apology for what went wrong.
    • I'd forgotten about that. That makes a lot of sense.  Sorry for not tagging you. Hard to remember a lot of the names.
