It bothered by Carmen Matthews' constant frantic inhales after almost all of her lines throughout her episodes.


im not bothered by it, never noticed really...Carmen is one of my favourite CBSRMT stars! Also love Mercedes McCambridge, Patricia Elliott and especially Terri Keane!!


It is particularly noticeable in 'The Resident'


The cat "meows" were so horribly done in 'The Resident' that I wouldn't have noticed anything else that was annoying about what the other actors were doing, lol! Also, the dialogue was so terrible that I didn't notice their mannerisms because I was so busy thinking about that when I wasn't thinking about the horrible "meowing". This would have to have been the top worst CBSRMT episode ever, (along with any other episode where a human is trying to "meow" or "talk" like a cat).


I couldn't agree more!!! 😊

I listened to Carmen in Wishes Can Be Fatal last night. I did not hear it. I will listen to her in Mirror, Mirror tonight. I think I remember her voice grating on me there about that "cursed mirror!"
