What did you think of the new mysteries?

 

Ruby Herring

Mystery 101


 

 

@ Daisy I think I posted somewhere, but who knows where... For me, Ruby was all right, nothing special... Lame dialog, mediocre acting, the usual bland casting for the most part, but not flat out bad either... I didn't watch 101, not a fan of either of them, especially Polaha or whatever his name is...

The guy playing Ruby's dad looks too young for the part. I looked it up and he's only 19 years older than the girl who plays Ruby.

 

I laughed when Ruby's mom stood up from the table and told the detective that Ruby could use some help with the treat bags. Seriously?

 

Wasn't too thrilled with either one of them, but I'll keep watching. Maybe the next shows will be better -- and the acting will have improved. lol

@ Daisy, a bit of trivia, IRL he is (or was for a number of years) her stepdad.

19 is young, but plenty of young men have become dads at that age. And yes, he is Taylor’s stepdad in real life. (He encouraged her to audition for Summerland.)

He still is her stepdad.  I saw them on Home & Family together.  I thought he looked too young to be her father, too.

Shawn Christian, Ruby's dad, has been a soap staple for years... A real hunk, in his prime, and still not bad looking... I thought he was one of the bright spots (and better actors) on this one... Frankly, would be good to see more of him and less of some of the others...I thought the mom looked and seemed too old for the dad... Go figure

@stevieb  I think Shawn Christian is really nice looking, too, and a good actor.  I just thought he looked awfully young to be her father.  It didn't bother me though.  I agree that the mom looked too old for the dad.

@NickNack Agree with you, especially juxtaposed against the 'mom', he seemed positively youthful... Before the roles were clear, I was sort of hoping he would be a friend of the family or something rather than her father...

Right? She looked more like his mom. Not a good match.

Smiley Very Happy Agree... If they plan to keep the family in episodes down the road, they should consider recasting mom...
