imagine my chagrin…
back in the day, I remember liking JLH on Party of Five. she seemed cute and spunky. and I remember being excited about Ghost Whisperer when it first came on (there weren’t any supernatural shows on at the time), but waaaay disappointed in the reality. she was wimpy. and annoying. and after the first few eps, I stopped watching.
and then last night I saw JLH on L&O:SVU where she totally and completely kicked ass in the acting department!
now I’m thinking it wasn’t JLH I didn’t like, but the character. d’oh! I guess Ghost Whisperer, and the lead character, just wasn’t enough of a show for me.
and that leads me to remind people that yes, character is so important. yes, you need a good story and good actors. yes, you need a decent production value. but if you don’t have the characters, if the characters don’t drive the story, if there’s nothing there for a good actor to grab hold of, then everything else falls.
at least in my not-so-humble opinion.
