Sunday Surgery: General Hospital Round-Up: Brutal
Happy Birthday to Kelly Monaco today, she's 34! I'm sure a big Vegas party is in store for her. Interesting, but I think Sam's birthday on GH is also in May.
Main point of this week? I was laying in bed thinking about the show (sad, but true) and realized that not one, but TWO teens have been beaten in the past few months. We had the Kristina/Keifer story line with all it's graphic beating going on and now we are 'treated' to Michael getting more of the same in jail. We may not see him getting raped, but it will be implied...he will at the very least be traumatized. I was also thinking how abruptly the whole Keifer story ended--we never saw Krissy in any kind of therapy, Alexis has all be evaportated and Warren got a big talking to from Prince Nik. Where's the Mom? Two scenes with her were cut, I do know that. Do you like your soaps with so much brutality? When I think about all the crap that's happened under Guza it boggles the mind: Carly tied up and terrorized by Ric, Jax in the ship tied up and raped, Carly shot in the head while PG...Michael shot in the head...Kate shot on her wedding day...multiple explosions with people dying..it goes on and on. Yes, the show is heavy into the mobular scene but the problem is it rarely tempers itself with any joy. Stories are always dropped, characters brought on to languish in back burner hell and things simply dropped never to be heard of again. It's so sad that my fave part of the show is evil Helena because in it's own charming way, it's the funniest part of the episodes!
So, now we'll be watching two shows...one set in Guza's "OZ" and the other going on in Port Charles. We'll have the Brooke Lyn saga --which I'm wondering if she'll see her Grandma Tracy at all considering she's in a dungeon! Maxie and Matt chem test (dusting off poor Dr. Matt), Claire running around trying to undo what she did and also looking to have her 'clock cleaned'. Scrubs people aren't going to be happy because useless LISA is actually going to temp Patrick. (AS if...!! ) :throwing up hands: WHATEVER...then there's our FRANCO--who's said by the mags/press release to terrorize the hospital. Meaning another HUGE 'event' to push everything else back into obscurity.
Bringing me to SCOOPS. I am going to be VERY modest with them because I honestly don't know what's staying and what's going now with the summer arcs. Hell, they've cut a lot from it NOW (Tracy/Helena Keifer's Mom/Carly)--who knows what they'll do once the supah stah shows up!
Ingo R is on vacation for 2 weeks...maybe Jax will take Morgan on a boating adventure.
For as goofy and sometimes just plain weird OLTL's musical was at LEAST it was joyful, showcased it's cast and did something different. Just sayin'
On a more fun note, James Franco was caught texting in Class..and I want you to know he was texting none other than THE WUBQUEEN, getting pointers on his performance art for GH. Heh.
Do you follow me on TWITTER? Because it's too fun. Over 6500 followers get live updates on GH and other ABC soaps, news and rumors as they happen!! Look me up @wubsnet
Have a great SUNDAY!! Tell me YOUR SUMMER WISH below!! Mine is that Helena Marries Edward Q and takes over ELQ !! Come on, you know it would be awesome! She'd be Luke's Mother in Law!! (Not to mention Tracy's step-mom). We'd have a big gothic wedding...complete with doves and ravens. Feta and feasting...a ball and some intrigue!! I so need to write for this show. Damn
