Remember that Passions ripoff of Wicked that I had pointed out to me yesterday?
Well, NBC actually keeps the shows up for streaming an entire week. Now you can have the dubious pleasure of suffering as I did.
The actress playing the older Esmerelda is Gloria Engel, who I saw as Mrs. Tottendale in The Drowsy Chaperone last year. You may also remember her as Georgette Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore show.
I will concede they made one clever injoke, but I'm not giving it away. The rest of it is just high-larious. Stephen Schwartz must've owed someone on this show's staff a big "I Won't Sue" favor.

I... the... that...
Ok, so, I don't have a television for anything more than playing Guitar Hero and watching VHS/DVDs. If something has been on actual broadcast television for less than, oh, ten years, I probably don't know what it is. (Unless it captures my friends' attention and they tell me about it; Whedon shows, Lost, House, etc.)
So goes for Passions. I just watched Part 1 of that episode, and I think I have to go stick my head in a bucket of bleach. Thank you for confirming why I don't pay for cable...
Only Part 1? No, no, you have to endure it all. You have to ride it out. It's not truly scarring until it's completed.
Thank you for confirming why I don't pay for cable...
Amen to that!!!

One of my teenaged clients was very upset last week that her mother was going to be home while this episode aired, and wouldn't let her watch it. Now I can tell her of the wonders of NBC.com!
