|02:17 pm - NOTHING EVER HAPPENS IN OZ|
Oh dear god.
NBC's Passions is putting on a Fake Wicked. I mean, they've got these musical numbers up. There's a girl in greenface. And a blonde girl in white. On stage. In a Fake Magical Boarding School. Singing Fake Stephen Schwartz Songs. I don't know why. Their names, according to the close-captioning, are Esmerelda and Tabitha. Singing a cross between "Popular" and "What Is This Feeling?"
It looks like it was directed by Corky St. Clair. I'm not fucking kidding. This is so hilariously bad, I've got tears from all the laughing.
And I'm so gonna give a kidney punch to the person who alerted it to me on IM.
EDIT: SAMPLE DIALOGUE TIME!!
Esmerelda: Oh, you're so jealous, you're turning -- ! Oh, wait. You already turned green.
And they just did an "It's not easy being green" joke. I'ma crying here.
EDIT EDIT: They just ran out of green makeup, so Tabitha turned Caucasian "by magic." And now they're doing a musical number called "Fly Away."

Is this Passions the soap opera? That's insane.

Passions is still on??? I thought it was cancelled! Hopefully, it'll show up on YouTube soon.

Esmerelda and Tabitha, eh? There a Darrin up there with them?
No, but Tabitha's daughter was named Endora.
This leads inevitably to the question -- why on Earth are you watching Passions?
I am reading Wicked right now, and I'm almost through it. I want to see the show afterwards, but I have this feeling there's going to be a lot of differences between the book and the show.
The answer to your first question lies in the eventual target of my kidney punch. :D
And, uh, yeah. There's quiiite a few differences between the book and the show. But they're teeny small plot points; you won't miss em.
(also I have been known to lie from time to time about book-vs-show things)
I have heard of the magic that is Passions, but sadly I have not been able to see it ever.
