By the way, did you like Blake's acting today? Did he impress you at last? Not wanting to derail the topic again, but I am really interested to know your take on today's episode. If you want, make the comments at the daily episode thread.
Just to answer this question, since I promised I would in another thread...no, I didn't see anything impressive about Blake Berris' acting in Wednesday's episode (or Thursday's episode, for that matter). He was just doing the dumb "dazed, confused, and stammering" routine at the beginning of the episode that he had previously done at Arianna's christening, and I didn't believe for a second that Nick was being sincere in those scenes. Then he was doing the campy thing later in the episode that he's been doing for months.
Beyond that, I'm just finding this whole Pity Party Tour 2014 thing ridiculously pathetic. I might
be able to muster an ounce of sympathy for Nick if any of his whiny complaints were the least bit true, but they're not. No one trusts or likes Nick because he's actively giving them plenty of reasons not
to trust or like him. It's not like he's turned into a modern-day Jack or anything.
Oh, and I hate that the writers are still trying to sell that complete and utter bullshit
about Will originally being willing and eager to give up his parental rights to Arianna just so that he could be with Sonny. It's not true, it's never been true, and it will never be true. :soapbox:
