Laura's "Spirit" and I did watch GH Today!



Here's a photo for you of Laura's Christmas Angel...bet she woudn't be TOO HAPPY with NIZ right now! LOL There's also another one that's a bit bigger on the site of Scrubs being all Holiday Happy!! BTW, Diane and Max will be visiting Alexis on Christmas!!

I did get to see GH today. Boy, can the Franco thing move any slower? zzzzzzz.
Of course I loved DOMaLu today.
Didn't like the Luke/Nik fight. I do like how Lucky talks to him... I so love JJ and TG together. Great dialog today. And I so see JJ saying it. Nothing against GV but this seems rooted in history. xxoo!

I asked peeps on Twitter to give the Franco story a grade. Got about 5 F's...3 A's... a bunch of B's...and a whole lotta C's. One nailed it "Incomplete" and one said "Unacceptable"...I say it started out as a solid B-- and then slid to a C because it's so freekin' SLOW! TYPICAL GH.

Do I care about Dr. Lisa? nooooooooooooooooooo.

I am going to like the Patrick--Steven Lars thing.

HEY! Even though the Kate Coleman thing was a total NINE commerical I loved it!


So, YOUR turn, give the Franco story a Grade! I'll add em all up later!

I give Franco A+
I love it ..........
And I love how it affect Jason he is not Stonecold anymore .... he is doubting himself and for me it is interesting to see how it will go on..

I love Kate and Coleman kiss i want more of them

skeebob said...

The first three episodes Franco was on were solid B's, & maybe the one where he intereacted with Luke and Sonny was an A-. Ever since, it's been hovering at C level, and sliding more each day.

If Franco would have full-mouth kissed Jason the other day, it would have shot up to A+. But that's just me.

Liz said...

skeebob, i agree with your assessment. A Frason (Fason? too much like Faison) kiss would have totally shot that episode to an A+. It would have really thrown Jason for a loop, and I would have loved to see how he would have dealt with it. He could have done us all a favor and killed him then and there!

I give this storyline (unfinished as it is) a C+. It isn't as bad as the Claudia crap (which i felt could have been really good if it was written better), which I would give a solid A for performance and an F-squared for writing. However, it wasn't as good as the Carnival and its fallout, which was around a B+.

Despite, giving letter grades, I think there should be a line at which there is no getting worse for GH (something below an F), and I was thinking that it could be represented by either the poison spheres or the Black and White Ball. This would represent a point so low that the storyline cannot come back from it. (This is similar to the Smartbitch (smartbitchestrashybooks.com) Cassie Edwards line (which was in place pre-Cassiegate).

Leesy said...

I've been expecting it (the kiss)skeebob...haven't you? Whoa, talk about your fixation...I've tried to pay attention, but the slowness of the plot progression is just putting me to sleep and they haven't said anything new in days!

Wow... what a way to promote a movie.... *rotflmao* Never thought I'd ever see a commercial for a movie in General Hospital. That STILL doesn't make me wanna see the movie tho. :P

Mamaspat said...

Loved Kate and Coleman the rest crap well maybe Luke fighting with Saint Nik was good.

cj said...

I give franco a big fat D. I agree that in the beginning I was amused and a little interested... but had I known it was oging to ruin Spixie (and Maxie gave in in what? 5 minutes?) I would have never been on board for this actor to join the GH team.

Gabby said...

The Franco stuff is stupid I give it a F. Even though he made me laugh yesterday when he was talking to Spin.Lisa is still horrid, the character and the actress *shrugs* I heard Sonny is going to flirt with her on the 28th it's going to be highlarious.The Luke and Nik fight today was the funniest s*** ever. Luke and Lucky scenes made me cry a little bit TG and JJ did great.I'm loving Maxie and Lulu my two girls. Hopefully Dante and Lucky will form a friendship.Kate and Coleman are hot I wish they would've close the show today instead of boring Jasam.

Anonymous said...

I'd give it a B. I like that Jason is actually doing some deep acting, instead of one liners.
Funny, I've noticed my husband and I talk through all the other story lines lately and when Franco comes on we stop and watch the TV. I think we are curious who he is, but I have a feeling it will be anti-climatic and he will be nobody that has any connection to anyone.
We were hoping it was a twin, AJ, or if he was young, AJ's son. We are going way out there.

Frank Strovel III said...

I give it an "A" for effort and a solid "B" overall.

I'll take a dragged-out Franco story over toxic balls ANYDAY.

jen said...

I have to say an F for the Franco storyline. I agree that Coleman & Kate are a hoot and Jaslut is a bore. I knew she'd be back running in spike heals foolowing him around like a puppy (mut) dog and sitting on his couch. DULL. Same with Liz & Nik, DULL. Love JJ back but lets hope they give him something really juicy. I say he rebounds with someone and gets her PG. That would give Liz a taste of her own meds. Maybe Maxie... That's about the only one he isn't related to in his age group. Maybe they can turn to each other after Spin dumps her and Lucky finds out the truth whenever the hell that will be. I want them to explore the Kristina/Ethan thing too. Love them! Love Jolivia also but they are ruining them too.

Lord I don't get how anyone can give the Franco stuff an A or a B.
Is there such thing as an F-?

kdmask said...

SKeeBOB...YOU GOT IT! :)

People are all over on this...A's to F's..

I give it an F

GH80 said...

Ok well I give the Franco s/l so far a C-...it did start out kinda interesting but than it went down from there. Yeah, his total gushing over Jason was just disgusting in away/IMO anyway. I almost did think he was gonna walk up & kiss him or kiss his feet at least....yeah, Guza writes himself in some corner again as usual...I'm not really feeling much for any couples right now. I like Jax & Carly but we all know when the full truth comes out about Dante & all he was gonna do to help him get Sonny she'll can him...which is sad cause Jax really is the best she's ever had....I also can't stand Sonny....ugh....I've been watching GH for so long now...when MB/Sonny first came on he was great....but its the same old sh** anymore...same old s/l that Guza writes...its a total joke really. Yet were suppose to buy it hook /line & sinker....whatever....after having the best & have been the best (meaning GH/past yrs/storylines/actors/actress etc)...when you get junk like we have been getting through the yrs with Guza....it makes ya sad.....not saying I don't like some stuff....but still we all know what 'it' can be & the fact that it isn't is what makes me sad......anyway....so sorry for the ramblings.....

Anonymous said...

I give the Franco Story an A+ I'm really enjoying it, it could speed up a bit, Great acting done by both James Franco and Steve Burton..

bc07 said...

Why is Guza writing it like Laura is still in a catatonic state or worse, dead? Her spirit? C'mon!

I wonder if they'll use a song off Genie's Christmas album in the episode.

The Franco story gets a "D" from me for the writing, an "F" for the execution and the set design, and a "C" for the acting. I love James Franco but this is beneath him.

Anonymous said...

I give this Franco storyline a B-
There where times when it won me over, and times where I just changed the channel because I wasn't interested anymore.

While I'm not excited about GH these days, my theory is, "if you don't like the show, then don't watch it." The complaining is getting old, as are the stupid nicknames. Please stop.

Andrea said...

Anonymous. Our complaining is as boring as your complaining about our complaining and nicknames. If you don't like it get off the site.
I'm not a fan of the nicknames either, but I ignore it, not worry about it.
Haven't seen the show this week yet. Won't be able to watch this week until Monday. I'm hoping everyone enjoys the rest of the week, or I have a feeling I will be deleting some shows instead of watching them.

Grade: Z as in Zzzzzzz.....
Sorry to any Franco fans, but he just doesn't do it for me. (The actor or his acting.) I do enjoy seeing Jason showing another emotion besides his usual stare. He is so nice to look at though, I don't care if he didn't talk at all! LOL!

Anonymous said...

As for the comment about Sam, ICAM! Boring. I never realized that she dresses in the same colors as Jason. If boobies aren't out, they are shown through a sheer black top. Where do they get her clothes? (Not a bash on the actress, she is pretty and I am sure that she can act if given good material.)

Not sure what to make of Coleman and Kate. I kinda liked it, but it is unrealistic. She is a snob. Snobs can change though!

AntJoan said...

I give the Franco story a D. No more, please!! Just end it, other stories are dropped, why not this one? (I know, I know, it's taped already, so we'll have to suffer through it.)

Couldn't BELIEVE the Nine promo on a soap! What's the connection?

Dr. Lisa, OMG, PLEASE recast her already!! Poor Robin, having to trade lines with Ms. Charlie's Angels piece of wood--no depth to her at all!!

J said...

I give the storyline a B- so far but James Franco an A. I have loved watching him and seeing what he's doing with the material they are giving him.

I was never really a "fan" of his before, but this stint on GH is making me one.

Anonymous said...

How much longer is the Franco storyline suppose to be on? Wasn't his stay on GH suppose to be 2 months. I can't remember when he started? Anyone know?

Mrs. B said...

I give Franco an F, just never became interested. Sounds like I may be in the minority. What Happened? Our show was getting better an now it stinks once again.

Anonymous said...

Franco story is an F. Too spaced out, it doesn't make sense and honestly, for Guza to write such a stupid story and be praised for it is crazy. Yes, Franco is good looking, sure he is a good actor... But, this story doesn't match what should be written for him. Why does every character have to be obsessed with Jason? It's stupid and just Guza's lust for the character is insane.

mosbp2003 said...

I give the Franco storyline a D+. It started out really intriguing with the room and the music, but as soon as James Franco finally appeared on scene it all just went downhill from there. At this point I FF through all of it.

ITA, the show was getting better and now it sucks again. And if anonymous does not like my complaining, too bad!

I can't remember who it was that said Lisa reminded her of Molly, but I have to say that yesterday, with her hair pulled back in that awful style, she completely reminded me of Molly too! Maybe it was because you could see so much of her face. Molly is adorable, but it is not so attractive on a grown woman!

I also loved the Luke and Lucky scene yesterday. I still miss GV as Lucky, but having JJ back is finally growing on me.

Chris said...

I like the idea behind the story...but I don't consider James Franco a huge star...only movies I can think of with him are Spiderman 1 & 3 and Flyboys.

I could've played the part..and so could anybody else, which is the part.. it was a character with no history. At least when Elizabeth Taylor first played Helena, we knew who the Casadines were.

I think a better choice for the part would've been somebody that is known on daytime like Michael T. Weiss or Tom Eplin.

GH needs an antagonist for Luke and Tracy, how about bringing in Charles Keating and or Victoria Windham.

But James Franco does not make me want to watch GH...Tony Geary, Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes and John York do.

Stephanie said...

I give Franco an A because he is just so darn sexy!

Anonymous said...

What Franco story? Just seems like a waste of airtime to me. More Lulu/Dante - less Jason/Sam/Franco.

Anonymous said...

Funny someone mentioned waiting for Franco to kiss Jason. I was thinking the same thing the other day. I was waiting for one of them to say "I'm not gay, not that there's anything wrong with that."

Julie R said...

Franco s/l definitely an F. The actor can only perform what they write and he has done an A on that aspect. Coleman and Kate --- HOT and it makes you want more. GH is best when it is about the Q's ANYBODY but Sonny and Jason. I cannot even make myself watch Nik any longer.

Jamie said...

HATE the franco stuff, but that is becuase I know hate Jason. He is a big hypocrite and I can mo longer be a fan. How sad. Anyway, I give the story an F since its so slow and not bringing in ANYONE new!

Billo said...

Haven't commented in a while but will give my two "cents" that Franco sucks! Big F from Big Bill
