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!
