Oooh, they all look gorgeous! Kristian and Crystal are stunning.

However, that is one cheap ass promo.

The guy doing the voiceover sounds half asleep and the last shot of Bo/Hope/Carly made me laugh, LoL. It looked like Peter, Kristian and Crystal were sitting there bored to tears waiting for direction and the camera just happened to be rolling as they lounged around.

That announcer guy sounds like when you have a computer read a sentence. "This. Is. Good. Stuff."

It's not as exciting as I hoped it would be but I'll take it. I think the reason Crystal was so hyped about it was because it had probably been a very long time since she was featured in a promo this way. Most of the GL promos are just clips from the show.

I usually try to be positive, and everyone looked fantastic, but that was a disappointment for a RETURN promo.

I know Carly was only on the show for three years, but she was a big part of a storyline that caused ALOT of the viewers that are still here today to tune in, and it gave the show many more years on the air, since things weren't that great beforehand. I am one who likes big returns like this to be suspenseful, and I DEFINITELY think that the promo itself should've been suspenseful...slowly showing shots of Carly(and actually talking in a suspenseful tone) until finally, at the end of the promo, veering up to show her face.

Instead, this promo was like "Oooh....Bo's ex is back! YAY!"

While I don't think the promo is bad at all, it definitely could've been better. Like daysfan said, it would've been better had they showed clips from Carly's previous time in Salem so that fans could see her interacting with the people in Salem rather than just standing behind Bo and Hope, leaving anyone who started watching the show after 1993 to wonder, "Who the hell is that?"

They could have done much better imo. ITA with Drew and DaysFan about them showing clips for the people who didn't watch. I'm excited about her return but that promo made me yawn!

Ummm, I would have much rather seen clips from her actual RETURN (you know, what this is supposed to be promoting). But that's just me.

I agree. For a return this big, that promo should've been much bolder.

LoL @ this post at DC: "That's not a promo. It's a video camera at a photo shoot with the worst voice-over I've ever heard."

They all look beautiful! :wub: However, they all look bored silly! :sleep: For all the hype this was given, what a waste of three great actors time! I know several firms that could have done a much better job that would probably cost a heck of alot less than what they paid to shoot this thing! Love the cute little kiss between Peter & Kristian! :makeout: They are just too cute! :wub: JMO

I agree that they could have had old clips of Bo and Carly....but I'm glad that theyre showing the clips on TV. I have seen the recent clip of "this week" on DAYS in the mornings.
