Just another example of how over exposed she has become.. Too much exposure can be bad for an actor, people see too much of you and they get sick of you.. It's already happened for many w/ this character. I think Ari is very talented but like everyone else, she has become over exposed.
You know, I think the overexposed actress is Ali Sweeney. The whole witness protection storyline was completely unnecessary, and yet we were subjected to her non-acting ability day in and day out. How much whining, ugly crying, and hystrionics can one take from a character??? At least Ari Zucker was interesting to watch and made some really stupid storyline twists compelling. I hated the Nicole character the entire time she was on the show the first time around, and since Ari's return last April, she's made Nicole so much fun to watch. If anyone is overexposed and needs to give us viewers a rest it's AS --- oh, and MB too -- she's not only overkill but she's an even worse actress than Ali.
I have to agree with this. For someone who works two jobs and was supposedly on a maternity leave, she certainly had her share of airtime. And really, I'm honestly noting that, when Sami had all that exposure for the past couple of years, including the time, what was it, 2007-2008, there were people complaining about that, but it seems to me, MORE people, including folks who were pretty ardent Sami fans at one time. I honestly think the reasoning is several fold. Even though Nicole's personality seems to be changing, Ari is adjusting to the change. Sami was pretty much relegated to glitter, crying status with little change. I don't think the acting is on the same level. I'm sure some will claim I'm bashing Allison, and well, you know, I call it as a I see it. Allison just can't be as multi-dimensional as Ari is currently. Ari used to be a so-so actress. She took pains to improve herself, and it shows. Yeah, she's on a hell of a lot. The difference is, I think to a lot of us, it doesn't SEEM like she's on a lot because it's not painful. For whatever reason, for some, it is painful. That's fine. They're entitled to their opinion.
That being said, I'm not crazy about the path they're leading Nicole down. But, I can see both Nicole AND Sami doing these actions. Again, it seems to me that Sami is the new Marlena/Belle, and Nicole is the new Sami, maybe along with Melanie. Whether it's right or not, Tomlin's gonna do what Tomlin's gonna do. And as long as the ratings reflect improvement, what we say won't mean squat.
Not that I'm complainin'. I happen to enjoy Ari immensely.
