"Laguna Beach" was a major disappointment this week.
I'm really confused by Alex M. She seems like she's about to start laughing every time she's on camera — even during emotional scenes like when she's angry or having boyfriend problems. Her friend Taylor actually confronted her about it when Alex was half-smiling as she talked about "how furious" she was at Jessica. ("Yeah, you seem real furious," Taylor mocked)
I can't decide if the show is completely scripted and she's just a bad actress, or if she's just a real kid who gets embarrassed going through things with a camera crew standing two feet away. Either way, it's kind of ruining the drama for me, hence why her "showdown" with Jessica didn't really have the pizzazz I was counting on.
Not to fret: Next week looks great as Kristin goes up to San Francisco to visit Stephen, only to break his heart once more.
