That announcer sucks balls! Trying to be Billy Dee Williams? Just doesn't fit with the story. Carly ain't looking so good, but so happy to see Vivian. I don't see anything wrong with the hair. Isn't that how she left? Wasn't it bright red?


Rick - love your avi! OMG! Love me some Lafayette, hooka!

I might have to start watching daily, just for Vivian. The hat though... :wtf: It looks like a black peacock is squatting on her head :shame:

I really miss the announcer from the 90's. He was so good!



They should just stop having announcers for these promos. If they do that, we won't have to deal with the lame ass lines ("Don't ask about the hat") and we won't have to deal with the lame ass voice-over guy.

A better option might be for them to do like ATWT and simply splice together a series of scenes from the coming week as the promo. No announcer, no script, no chance to fuck it up. I'm all for it.

It's posted on youtube. Check out the first page of this thread. :smile:

The story and material looks great but the announcer and the writing suck. I told the producer on twitter that much as well. I keep advising her to go watch some old 15 second promos to see how it's done. Good thing the promos aren't seen much outside of the Internet because they are that bad. I mean, that hat line was awful. Just awful.

Um...that announcer has GOT to go!
Everyone involved in the making of these promos have got to go.
Yep, I wonder how long the woman on Twitter has been working with the promos. I wouldn't be suprised if it's just been a few months because the quality of the promos have gotten so much worse these last six months. And this voice over is even worse than the previous one.

These promos are poorly directed, bad voice overs, bad script, bad music, and to short. Short promos can be good but with everything else about them sucking it doesn't exactly make them better.

But to say at least one positive thing, I'm looking forward to see Vivian.
I really doubt doing the promos is her only work. She is probably some assistant or low level producer who has a zilion other responsibilities and the promos are done during lunch brake. They have a zero effect anyway, itīs just a tradition.
Of course it will have zero effect when you have that attitude and don't even try to make it good.

"And dont ask about the hat?" Wtf? Are they going for humour with that? The voice over sucks and his dialogue is really rubbish. otherwise the promo was fine.

So excited for Aunt Viv though :)

^I will admit it wasn't that bad but the announcer takes the life out of anything. With a better announcer, the line may have came off better.

Rick have you been watching the show lately?
I watched Thurday and Friday getting ready for Vivian's return and to see what was up with Carly.

I liked what I saw, the show is in a lot better shape than it was when I stopped watching way back.

Stephanie is even tolerable lol

The announcer is a MESS.

It even sounds like it might be a computer.
