Sunday Surgery: Balkan Reveal Leaves Fans Lethargic
It happened. FINALLY! Were you surprised? Not if you read this blog or the wubs net or any other site on the net . LOL. I think it was pretty well known that Daniel B was hired to play the part. With his bald head, round glasses and "accent" he's straight out of a Bond film. GH did do a good job of trying to keep the lid on. Vanessa Marcil said she was "blown away" by the identity. I personally think she was going by her script which had Jerry as the Balkan...half the cast probably didn't even know for sure. Now that we know he's the baddie, I can see a lot of air going out of GH's sails in the next few weeks. Sure, they have the bus crash coming. It looks great in the promo, doesn't it?? Let's hope it's that exciting when we watch it. That's what our show does best, these "events". I just wish it could carry over on a consistent basis.
Things that are still hanging-- where did Lady Jane go? Why only use her for one scene? Where's Sam been-- after all, Jerry's last obsession was with her and no one even seemed to care where she might be when he was running around town. While I'm glad all the kids will be on this bus trip, it's so sad they are hardly ever seen at other times. Trot them out for a catastrophic thing...then put them back in the storage closet. Maybe Jason will remember he has Jake? Gee, there you go. Brooke Lyn and Nikolas might intrigue me--if they were on more than 1x a month. And contract for her to be his "companion"?? Tyler Christopher has to be dying thinking Nikolas would have to pay for someone to accompany him! There are plenty of debs to choose from in the circuit I'm sure that would LOVE to go out with a prince!
Monica's absence is a huge hole. Jason will take Michael to see Edward--but Monica is gone. She's also not around for the bus crash OR the Luke/Tracy wedding!! Monica=the NuAudrey. MIA.
They are bringing on another new Doc...pediatrician Tyrell... and a wedding planner, Carol. Great, more newbies in an already crowded canvas. Where has Suzanne been? I tell you what, she'd better be revealed to be Theo's "ex" and Alex's Mom or her existence is wasted. I was thinking we lived through how many months of Brenda in Rome-- with Monty, for what? Zzzzzzzzzz. More characters thrown in not related to anyone: Abby...Siobhan...Claire...Suzanne...yada yada.
Lethargy is the word for today. Lazy writing--Lazy Fans...Lazy, Lazy. S&Bers did get their night o' love --and a new house. Soon they'll get a proposal--things look good on that end. The Genie Francis rumor is coming up again. Maybe she'll return to cause angst for the newlyweds?
Since I'm here every week I'm going to give the Golden Scalpel to the performer I think gave 110% this past week for Sunday Surgery. This week's GS goes to: Sebastian Roche who classes up the joint no matter what he has to say. I only wish he and Connie Towers (Helena) could share many scenes, and I'd be in heaven!!
A few new Spoilers are as of this morning, mainly about the BUS CRASH and upcoming trial-- Have a great one! Also: GH Is in repeats (Metro Court) Thurs/Friday this week.
