I know it’s been out for awhile….
But I just had a chance to watch all six webisodes of the online ABC fantasy soap series “What If,” where they pair a character from one ABC soap in a chance meeting with a character from another soap…..
The thing about the episodes is that they are short, four-to-five minute clips, each, so that you can get a taste of the two characters interacting – and it leaves you wanting more!
They are well-written and well-acted.
It’s all just pure fun….
And let’s face it….who doesn’t like our soap characters having a little fun together???
Watch the intros to the series by the actors, who talk a little bit about what it was like working with each other.
I’d have to say my favorite is Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) meeting Tess Buchanan (Bree Williamson)…those two characters together made me smile and laugh the entire time!
In my opinion, Zamprogna and Williamson are so great in portraying their respective characters, so no surprise to me that they would be good together.
Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) meets Todd Manning (Trevor St. John)….this is also one of my favorites… I mean, what can you say when these two polar opposites collide….ya gotta love it!!
The ending is PRICELESS!!
I also loved the Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) meeting Erica Kane (Susan Lucci).
Those two vets worked off each other seemlessly – and Sonny and Erica together was the epitomy of soapiness!
Then there’s Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright) meets Ryan Lavery (Cameron Mathison)….Again, those two make it seem like they’ve been onscreen together forever.
And the chemistry between the two is electric!
But let’s face it…who wouldn’t have chem with either of them?
When Angie (Debbi Morgan) and Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams) meet Starr Manning (Kristin Alderson)….let’s just say the teenager hears TMI! So funny!
And when Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) meets Greenlee Smythe (Rebecca Budig), there’s a bit too much alcohol involved, if you catch my drift.
The “What If” series can be found at abc.com and soapnet.com.
I have to say that I’m really looking forward to the next four webisodes coming out….
We have Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) meeting Viki Buchanan Banks (Erika Slezak); Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) meeting Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier); Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) meeting Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) and John McBain (Michael Easton) meeting Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco).
Talk about some fireworks with those couples!
