Making The Show
The hyper montage of cast photos and some guy's arm comes back again, this time accompanied by rockin' electric guitar power chords. No Sad Clarinets on MTV, folks! Catherine Hicks describes her awful character to us as an "at-home mom who's just good at it," and then proceeds to tell us all about how damn happy every single person in the Camden house is. This is accompanied by the following shots from the show: Annie rolling over in bed, rejecting her husband's advances; RevCam putting the twins at the table while Annie sits around; and some of her kids sitting on the stairs in order to spy on the other kids. If only my family were this happy.
Stephen Collins is next up, and he tells us that Eric is a minister at a "non-denominational Christian church." So I guess the answer to the big question on the forums about the denomination of the Camdens' church is that it isn't any denomination. Nice cop-out there, Brenda. Then Collins does a little sarcastic-sounding laugh thing that makes me think that, in real life, he thinks Eric sucks. Apparently Brenda would have none of this, because there's a sudden cut where she probably made them stop the tape so she could give Collins twenty bucks to let us all know the virtues of the Camden family. It's the best family ever, and Eric and Annie have a great marriage.
Barry Watson struggles to find something good to say about Matt, and the best he can do is tell us that Matt is "the nicest guy in the world." Then he laughs dorkily.
Oh, yuck, it's Jessica Biel. Her description of Mary has been cut, while she was in mid-sentence, about four or five times. She does not say anything about how she could kick Mary's ass in a fight like she said in Gear, sadly.
Beverley Mitchell talks about Lucy, making her sound as lame as she actually is.
David Gallagher is next, and he apparently has a short-term memory problem, as he describes Simon as someone who doesn't drink, even though we all saw Simon drinking like two weeks ago.
Mackenzie Rosman struggles valiantly to describe Ruthie as something other than a sociopath.
Adam LaVorgna tells us about Robbie and is that a shot of Robbie walking into the Camden house with Britney Spears? No, it's not Britney, it's International Pop Sensation Joy Enriquez -- but what an easy mistake to make! LaVorgna says nothing new or interesting about Robbie.
