MOST BORING COUPLE|
HECTOR AND SAMANTHA, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
It didn't help that the death of Samantha's pooch kicked off (pun intended) this tedious tail, er, tale. Then we found out that all the grieving was really about her stillborn baby from a teenage pregnancy. Okay, that held some promise - until Sam ran into Hector, whom she hadn't seen since getting pregnant, and the potential for this couple was crushed by warp-speed pacing and heavy-handed backstory. (The short version: Hector had been nobly raising their not-dead daughter, Caitlin, now a teen). We just couldn't invest in Hector and Samantha's relationship. (A digitally composed snapshot of them as young lovers wasn't enough.) And their rushed reconciliation lacked authenticity. We don't know if they were victims of flawed plot execution, zippo chemistry or both, but at this point, who cares?
