My 12 year old daughter enjoys the show Seventh Heaven. On occasion I have watched portions of it, and it strikes me as a relatively benign show.
But my goodness! I question whether the entire cast combined could act their way out of a wet paper bag. The only member of the cast who seems to have any acting ability is the guy who plays the younger minister. The others appear completely wooden and insincere. As painful as the young twin automatons are to watch, I’m not sure they are the worst members of the cast. The main characters such as the preacher and his wife, and the bit players such as the black cop, all seem similarly afflicted.
Am I being unfair in my characterization?
What is it that makes bad acting so obvious?
Are there any other shows out there with comparably bad acting?
