Hi, my name is Angel, I'm 31-years-old and I'm addicted to teen shows. (OK, really all TV, but it is especially embarrassing that I love these). Now can someone send me to that rockin' rehab where Kirsten on The O.C. is staying? Anyway, my current obsession is the ABC Family show Wildfire, and I think they are trying to kill me. I'm all for cliff-hanger endings, I've been patiently waiting all summer to find out what Luke said to Lorelai (please be "yes"), who is behind Veronica's door (please be Logan) and what the heck is in that hatch (please be something cool). However, now I'm left hanging, and in the worst way: It literally stopped in the middle of an important scene. Will Kris win her horse race and show up that nasty Tina? More importantly, will she get back together with that fun-lovin' Junior? And how will Dani cope with the news that she and Junior are only step sibs and that Daddy Dearest has been lying to her all along? Thank goodness this show got picked up for another season; the horse play and adolescent frolicking are just good clean (well sometimes a little dirty) fun. But was it really necessary to have voice-over guy announce that it we wouldn't have the answer until 2006? That is AGES away. I'm just relieved that I'll get the answers to all my other TV questions in the next couple of weeks. I hope that will keep my mind occupied.... As much as I love me some teen dramas, I just can't get hooked on Beautiful People. I've been trying to watch it every week, hoping for some improvement just because I love Daphne Zuniga, but I end up fast-forwarding every time I get bored. Some episodes are better than others, but there is something about it that is just not quite good enough to be a quality drama, and not quite campy enough to be a fun soap. On the plus side, that bartender guy is H-O-T, so there is a beautiful person on the show, and the annoying blue-screen issues have gotten slightly better. Even if that means that the "Hamptons" are really Southern California, at least it looks like something real.
