Whither HBO?

As we Tweeted this morning, it has come to our attention that "Shit My Dad Says" is being turned into a sitcom over at CBS with William Shatner as the infamous foul-mouthed patriarch. You can read all about it here. We follow Justin (shitmydadsays) on Twitter. He's truly funny. In a crude, profanity filled way. Not sure how they'll adjust for that on prime time television.

But the most perplexing question is -- Why hasn't HBO (or any other network) contacted us about creating a show from the brilliance of Pratt Falls? Seriously! Aren't we worthy? Wouldn't you like to see the adventures of Ellen & Portia brought to you weekly in HD? Isn't it sad that nobody has tried to make us famous yet? Except, of course, for those insanely smart Canadians at TV Guide CA who nominated us for an award.

Ah well. Nobody ever said life was fair. Just ask Eden Riegel.

Happy Anniversary Bianca & Reese!

My how time flies when your favorite soap opera couple is maligned and mistreated! It was just one year ago that the ultimate Pratt Fail took place in Pine Valley. We are not going to recount the horrors of that event here. Let us just reiterate the fact that REESE WAS DRUNK. Drunk, people. Porcelain Ready Drunk. Or, as Jimmy Buffett would say: knee-crawlin', slip-slidin', reggy-youngin', commode-huggin' drunk. Which you would have to be to kiss Zach. (Sorry Kendall, just our opinion.)

Ok, now that that's taken care of.... Let's reminisce about how gorgeous Bianca and Reese's wedding was and forget the rest of the crap that preceded and followed it (and was inter-cut within it). GrrrrArrgghhh.

But, oh the pretty!

Awards Season is Here & We're Nominated

Well, color us surprised! We've been nominated for an award. Can you believe it? We can't. And yet it's true! Those sweet, insightful folks over at TV GUIDE CA have deemed us worthy. We're so humbled, we're so honored, we're so shocked.

We think it's quite hysterical that we're nominated along side Imaginary Bitches & Venice! Oh the irony.... And we're pretty sure there's as much of a chance of us winning that award as there is for a hummingbird to fly to the planet Mars with the Washington Monument tied to its tail.

Diary Of A Single Mom
Michael Fairman’s Guiding Light Daytime Emmy Award Tribute (four-minute version)

Portia's Top 10 Bianca & Reese Moments * #1 *

#1 "A sacred act. One that is blessed by all who witness it."


Again with the GrrrrArrgghh

Has Pratt been hired by Google Video? That might be one explanation for why the videos are available, then unavailable, then available, then not. It's a wee bit annoying, isn't it? We apologize for the inconvenience.

Portia's Top 10 Bianca & Reese Moments #3 & #2

Re-watching all these clips from last year has made me so sad. Angry and sad. There's so much potential for this couple! I could go on and on and rant for days about the injustice done to the show by Pratt's butchering of the characters and -- . No. No, I shall not descend into the morass of evilness that is Pratt's legacy. I shall instead be the Gal at the Crossroads Looking with Hope and High Vision to The Choosing of a New and Better Future. Let us all pray that the new AMC head writers convince TPTB that the show needs Bianca and Reese, because without them, Pine Valley has no heart or soul.

#3 The hug heard 'round the world.

We all knew Bianca and Reese were going to ride off into the sunset together. But who knew they would set a land speed record for quickest reconciliation in the history of soaps? Are these not the two people who got into trouble for --as Eden so aptly put it in our interview -- "not knowing a lick about each other before having a baby together" ? Wouldn't it have made more sense if -- Oops, almost did it again. Trying to insert logic into a world that had none. This moment was filmed post Pratt's hatchet job on Eden. I always kind of saw it as Eden coming back to rescue Tamara and save her from the Pirate-Shirted Menace. Either way -- whether you view it as Bianca and Reese's much deserved, albeit super-speedy, reconciliation, or Eden and Tamara's au revoir to AMC, the emotion was genuine and there was buckets full of it.

#2 I would rather dance.

I don't need to explain the appeal of this to anyone, do I? The dancing? The eye sex? More than the massage and "Get me out of these clothes" - it was this moment that made my panties fly off. And I haven't seen my Straight Card since.

To be continued....
