    Jeffrey Carlson (ABC)
    AMC is known for being in the forefront of socially conscious storylines, and the introduction this week of Zarf (Jeffrey Carlson) as the transgender "international rock star" has people talking.

    Carlson is a stage actor who appeared as Marilyn Monroe in Broadway's ill-fated musical "Taboo" in Fore2004,and returned to Pine Valley this week after producers decided to reprise what was originally a one-off appearance last summer.

    According to a recent interview with Carlson, Zarf was born Freddie Luper in Indiana, ran away from home and became a superstar at the age of 19.

    Expect a number of dramatic and groundbreaking storylines as Zarf begin his journey transitioning from male to female. Carlson says that his character will definitely be seen dressed as a woman. Whether there will be a storyline on sexual reassignment surgery has yet to be decided.

    Zarf is the most obnoxious character AMC has yet introduced. He even makes Colby tolerable. Everyone I know who watches AMC fast forwards all Zarf scenes. It's a shame for two reasons. First of all this means we miss many Bianca scenes. But more important, this means that it will appear that a transgender storyline doesn't work when it is not the topic but the character. If AMC really wanted to do a transgender storyline they should have brought back a character connected with the show as a transgender... someone like Tim Dillon or Scott Chandler. Instead we get this story with the most obnoxious, unlikable character any soap has had in recent memory.

    I think Zarf could be the killer..but then again, the killer seems to be connected with Zach.

    Well there ya go, a tough start for Zarfette by majority opinion so far.
    Might a personality transplant be on the surgeon's To-Do list?

    I THINK THAT ZARF CAN BE OBNOXIOUS AT TIMES BUT HE DOES HAVE AN INTERESTING PERSONALITY. IT'S LIKE BIANCA SAID ON YESTURDAYS EPISODE HE HAS SOME THING TO HIDE AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES HIM SO APPEALING. I DONT THINK THAT HE IS THE ONE MURDERING THE WOMEN OF FUSION. I THINK THAT IT IS SOMEONE FROM ZACH'S PAST. BUT I THINK THAT WE SHOULD ALL GIVE ZARF'S CHARACTER A CHANCE I MEAN AFTER ALL I KNOW A FEW PEOPLE WHO DESPISED BABE'S CHARACTER AND NOW LOOK AT HER!!!

    Zarf is a great addition to the show. Someone different, exciting and refreshing.
