MOST BORING COUPLE


DAVID RAMPAL & MELANIE CORTLANDT, ALL MY CHILDREN
Gooey. Sticky. Dated. If you fell in love in the 1950s, this story might have appealed to you. But guess what? It's 1990, and people don't act like David and Melanie anymore. Maybe the script writers at ALL MY CHILDREN who fell in love in the 1950s think they do. The audience was "treated" to soda shop courtship -- endless walks, hand-holding, soulful gazing into each other's eyes -- and very little content. Not that everyone has to be deep, but the audience needs more. Especially if AMC expects us to sit through it for an entire summer. David and Melanie only became interesting when AMC broke them up.
