AKA: TAMARA OBSCURA, THE OMNIBUS EDITIONFirst off, I really need to apologize for not getting these up yesterday. I went Christmas shopping and also took some personal time for myself. I also was able to obtain some new additions to the press section for you. So please understand. What to say about today. I am thrilled with the calibre of acting Tamara is getting to do. Finally, we got some gravitas to Reese’s character. I was beginning to think this was another one of those Dena Higley situations where the head writer was only interested in Tamara’s character only when it meant something to one of the what could be called ‘main’ characters. Frank Runyeon was just incredible. I really got the feeling of that loss on both Reese and Forrest’s sides, though naturally I side with Reese. Once again Tamara got me crying. What is it about that women that when she brings on the waterworks, my emotional barometer goes up? I also thought her scenes with Eden as Bianca were in proper, though I’m not going to want to ‘be there’ when the shoe drops about what she knew about Kendall’s (Alicia Minshew) condition. Though in my opinion, that should fall solely on Zach (Thorsten Kaye). He’s the one who’s sworn Reese to secrecy. Of course, this is my opinion only.

My apologies for not having these up earlier. For some reason, Murphy’s Law hit me with a vengence today. I had problems with my computer and with website’s host and couldn’t log in to either my file manager, nor my FTP program to upload the screencaps to the server. Then mundo trouble with getting the episode clipped up. I forgot a whole section and had to go back and reclip. So, that’s my case. As for today, I loved the scenes with Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Miranda (Haley Evans) today. If I haven’t said it before, I adore little Haley. She has such a presence to her and knows how to do her stuff. To say I’m impressed, woutd be cutting Haley short. Ii was really glad that Reese told Zach (Thorsten Kaye) she was tired of lying to Bianca. Thank you Chuck Pratt for finally giving us Reese’s side of this and her not wanting to hurt Bianca. While I understand Zach’s not wanting to hurt Bianca and Erica (Susan Lucci), lying to them about Kendall’s (Alicia Minshew) condition won’t help. But hey as Eric Braeden (Victor Newman; Y&R) once told me when I wrote to him, it’s a soap…nothing stays the same long. Ain’t that the truth.Head’s up for tomorrow: Frank Runyeon comes to town as Forrest Williams, Reese’s father. I can hardly wait to see Tamara and Frank as father and daughter.

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I decided to add a comment feature to the homepage updates. I really hope you like it. It’ll be the best way I can find out what you like or don’t like about the site in real time. I’m really jazzed about this because it’s new for me and TAMARA OBSCURA. Please feel free to leave a comment, a good casserole recipe, or just a smiley.On to today’s show. I really love the maturity at which Tamara’s playing Reese. She’s a complex character dealing with so much at once and Tamara’s ability to move through those complexities within the character is to say the least, a lesson in what acting is all about. Her scenes with Zach (Thorsten Kaye) in the cabin shows Reese really is agonizing over the secret he’s asked her to keep from Bianca. We truly see Reese’s conflict. I’m really looking forward to Tamara’s scenes with Frank Runyeon as Reese’s father, Forrest Williams. And we just know that the secret about Kendall is coming out soon. As usual, the video clip is up at OBSCURE MEDIA. And prior homepage can be found here: Prior Updates.
