Sunday Surgery: General Hospital in 2010...bombs and broads.




Welcome to 2010! We had 2 more days off from GH last week. That's four in the last 2 weeks. Goodness. We saw the ratings slump yet again, and the whole Franco steamroller seems to be losing speed. What is coming up? Why get those damsels in distress asap! Not one, not two but THREE lovely ladies all tied up, waiting for Jason to save them. Lulu's tied to a bomb. Which, has been done before. "Sweet Sam" on the ship with crazy Jerry and Claudia on the roof with her father. Over kill? Not in the world of Guza! Just another day at the office. I guess he thinks our pulses quicken at the thought of a woman in peril. Bob, did you watch way too many movies in your childhood with women tied to the railroad tracks?

*sigh* Last year started out with toxic balls, Ethan and Rebecily. We know how that went. This year is a little more promising as at least we have a fresh face to look at and it MIGHT just MIGHT prompt a change in ol' St.Jasus. BTW, SOD reported that Guza actually told Franco if he didn't come back for another GH stint, he'd hire Johnny Depp to show him up. That's laughable in about 7,000 different ways.

The start of 2010 in a Nutshell: Conclusion of Franco story, Niz reveal, Dante reveal (probably Feb sweeps)... CarJax trouble, Lisa goes bat-crazy, Keifer the bully. We'll see Lucky implode in a few ways. Dante/Lulu create friction for families and Jason tries to sort out his murderous life. Michael gets a love interest which I believe will now be a  Ward ('member them?)-- not Billy Dee's daughter. Where IS Billy Dee? New Spoilers up later today.

BTW,  I watched a million Twilight Zones on SyFy during the marathon. Wowza. What writing. Minimal sets...great editing, creepy without resorting to any tricks. Loved it!





Alberta Wubs was at the Rose Bowl Parade this year! Here's a pic of her. She's still in CA, waiting to go to NYC for Bradford and Brandon's event.  Gwaddie and Ghubby have been taking great care of her. In 2010 she's going to have a lot of GH encounters!

What a great writeup! Still laughing! Oh plz...no more toxic balls! EVER Oh plz...no more FRANCO! EVER! I've got a Johnny Depp impersonator that could show up FRANCO! Come to think of - who couldn't??? LOL Great lead up to nothing. Hope this year is a whole lot better! :)

I'm just hoping they don't have Lucky revert to using drugs again. Maybe they want an excuse to get him out of the PCPD now that dante is on the scene.

Still laughing about the Johnny Debb line...lol and I'm thoroughly sick of Franco. Just hurry up and end it and DON'T bring him back for heaven's sakes.

I think Lucky is going to drink not drug...can't say 100% for sure

I think Lucky should go back dark for a bit. Who wouldn't after what's been done to him? Then Luke should have to face his own issues, then pick his son off the floor and help one of his children for once!

T minus 8 days until the end of Franco :D

Every year I watch that Twilight Zone marathon on New Year's - love it!!
Franco story is plain boring - can't be over soon enough. Love Dante and Lulu together - he is so damn cute.

i was talking to my mom, telling her about Micheal's potential love interest, and she says that the Wards are related to the Q's. so Micheal couldn't get involved with one of them. Justice was Edward's grandson, and he was a Ward...so incest anyone?

mosbp2003 said...

Justice was Edward's grandson, but there are other Wards that are not related. Keisha Ward dated both Jason and AJ.

none of the spoilers sound light hearted or fun.
if guza wants franco back I guess that means he won't be killed, just disappear?

i watched a few of the past weeks gh on soapnet today and i actually liked them. i liked JJ of course. he's so amazing and i liked Nik (whom i normally dont). I loved Spinelli and I am actually excited for Mac and Alexis. there is a lot of potential. i hope they dont screw it up.

( i still dont like ethan. they need to do away with him and fast)

Billy Dee Williams has been doing some hilarious bits for the Jimmy Kimmel Show -- commemorative plates for news events. The latest was the collection of Tiger's mistresses, including two blank plates for women who turn up in the future... hilarious!

jason has had plenty of opportunites to change.what could be more important than his forgotten son jake. if it is his love for sam, I will be done with GH for good.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, how weird would that be if his love for Sam would be more important than the love of his own son? I already think bad about Jason for that. This would bring it to a new low!!

I watched Twilight Zones non-stop, too. They were so well done. This is a New Year's ritual for me. Also watched nine episodes of True Blood this week since they were before I started watching - unbelievably good. GH is quite a letdown after all this good stuff. I see that Lucky turns to the bottle again after he finds out about Niz. Love him but he looks too young to drink. Thank goodness the Franco Fizzle is almost over.

Julie R said...

Thank Goodness Franco is almost over!! Just wanted to say that if the potential love interest for Michael is a Ward, are they going to have him in love with a family member? He actually is a Quartermaine and the Ward's are related to the Quartermaines through Edward, sounds like something they would do!!!!!

Leesy said...

As I remember, Edward and Lila had Alan, who fathered AJ, who fathered Michael...Edward and Mary Mae Ward had Bradley, who fathered Justice who fathered this new girl.(didn't they kill him off before he had children?) That would make both Michael and the new girl Edward's grandchildren. A tad close for romance it seems. Now if she's a niece or another distant relative, they would be too far apart for it to matter. I am presuming she will e related, but not a direct descendant.
