I didn't know our criticisms about a DVD cover boiled down to a Haley vs Brooke argument. LOL
Your repeated criticisms about Brooke did that.
don't kid yourself about Brooke's screen time being long over due
You misunderstand. Throughout the show, Brooke's storylines have been less intensive and of less focus than others. Sure, she's had screentime, but until the time jump, much of it was superficial, IMO. It was screentime that made me love her character, but didn't give her much to do. They progressed her character and gave her depth, but as for stuff to actually to do...not much.
Those important moments in life - a marriage, having children - were all given to Haley and Nathan (twice over) and Lucas and Peyton before they were ever given to Brooke. Even a dramatic event like being hospitalised didn't happen to Brooke until Season 8.
So yes, it was a big season for Brooke storyline wise (although screentime was quite evenly split) but that's only because she's had to wait. Because in Season 3 it was Haley and Nathan's marriage, in Seasopn Four it was Haley and Nathan's child. In Season Five it was Lucas and Linsday's wedding. In Season 6 it was Lucas and Peyton's wedding and Lucas and Peyton's pregnancy. So now it was Brooke's turn.
That's what is getting me so annoyed with people complaining about Brooke getting so much screentime this season. And so this was one throwaway comment by you, but my annoyance isn't JUST aimed at you. Brooke and her fans have had to wait EIGHT seasons for this. And when they finally get it, people who maybe dislike Brooke or prefer Naley get bitchy.
And I am not surprised they are monopolising on Brooke. Sophia is probably the only cast member to actually promote the show.
