It's FRIDAY Soapy Beeatches!!

 We made it!! We lived through Sam's hearing loss, no one changing clothes almost all week-- weird timelines, Sonny angst, Bat Caves!! we deserve a good cocktail! 

OLTL was weird today.

General Hospital: Nelson Branco's Suds Report says that Ingo has been dropped. The real deal is that Ingo said via Twitter that his airtime has dropped! Nelson also didn't say IR is going on recurring, Sonya Eddy is. So, when you read that, don't get confused! Actually, by the time you read this, it should be fixed.

Also, is Vanessa leaving soon? Seems she said her time was "almost done" at GH in an Access Hollywood interview. Now, we know she's slated to stay through summer--beyond that, I think it's the ol' contract dance. Just sayin' 

TODAY'S SHOW: Did I miss where that guy said he'd help Brenda? They must have assumed we'd just figure he said yes?? He shows up at the Metro and doesn't tell Sonny only because that thug was watching him.

Yes! They had Sam hear white noise...nice. Now I can not be mad at them. LOL. Ears are my biz. BIG scene with Liz/Sam talking about Jake and how cute he is and how he looks like Jason. Uh... so they talk to him NOW?! LOL

Theo is manhandling Suzanne. Why would Theo hire such a dork like that butler guy? Come on.  Maybe it's his nephew. He had to or his sister Marge (above) would be mad. LOL

I would LOVE love love Michael to want to be a cop! ahahahaa. But NO have him want the mob which is so predictable.

Sonny "Jax went all Law and order on me"..heh..and he didn't throw that stupid glass like in the promos. Wahh, my fave part.

not liking the interest in jake ...spells doom in gh sad!

bumchickabowbow said...

Ugh. I still can't believe the writers had Liz forgive Sam for the past. I'd be damned if I would be showing Sam pics of my baby and chatting with her...anyhoo.

I'm very sad that (yet another) Quartermaine heir is going to be killed-off. Little Jake is so adorable...suckage.

x 2. Not realistic good mom behavior.

Andrea said...

I just wrote into ABC and showed my disgust about the upcoming Jake storyline.

kdmask said...

NO ONE liked the Large Marge fun?!

AntJoan said...

Karen, of course we did, we love everything that you do!!

On another note, I wondered why the barware wasn't a'flyin', now I know that they edited it out.

Another 2 notes: I thought that VM has a 2-year contract? Also, I am SO SAD that focusing on poor baby Jake means certain doom . . .

Watchintele said...

Didn't you get the memo, bumchickabowbow and Wanda Woman?

It's normal behaviour to forgive the woman that watched your child be kidnapped and had men threaten you and your children at gunpoint!!

That's as normal behaviour as it is for Jason to forgive these grievances because they are nowhere near inexusable as telling the truth about the paternity of a child to his real father.

So be damned reality, and lets change characters from what has defined them as a character since their inception/introduction to the show. Lets chalk it up to the character evolving/growing and showing more depth as a character, as long as Sam McCall is forgiven.

Btw, viewers, you too must forget all that has happened because that's the way we (TPTB - Frons) want it. So too bad for you! We don't care that you've all been loyal viewers. Get with the program, or just wait 'til we run this show to the ground as you all have been already witnessing for the past decade.

Lets be realistic here, Sam is Frons' pet. And, what Frons' wants he gets. Except getting rid of RH! In your face, dude!! IN YOUR FACE!!!

Maybe, that should tell the brass above Frons, that he is not in touch with viewers and what they want to see.
Time for you to go, and please LET the door hit you on the way out!!

DLM829 said...

Yes, I too thought VMG signed a two year contract?

Anonymous said...

Let's just hope something is rewritten and Jake doesn't die... just injured. Because my old heart can't take that adorable mini-Jason being offed. And oh geeze, poor Liz. Girl can't catch a break for the life of her. Let me guess, she has a mental breakdown? It's at least justifiable...

My thing is, why even give Liz Jason's son if you're going to kill him off in the first place? If he never existed, we wouldn't have to go through yet another senseless death, and feel pissed that (on purpose or not) this paves a way for this glorified Jasam baby.

Anonymous said...

How just HOW is GH ahead of OLTL sounds really fishy to me GH sucks most days and OLTL is so good the storylines move and keep ur interest.I just don t get it!!Is someone being payed off?Side note if they kill that child I`m gone enough is enough,thats my final straw.Nan

Anonymous said...

I'm with you Nan and all the rest of you as well. Would have rathered Jake just be Lucky's. He's the one who has loved him and been hands on (off screen mostly, of course, lol) And while I'm at it why bring JJ back the one with the weak at your knees chemistry with Becky if they barely have had 5 scenes together since the reveal of the Niz affair? Does anyone like the irish lass?

Anonymous said...

I too will not watch if Jake dies. No reason for this. Accidents can happen but miracle hospital has to come through for someone other than Jason, carly, sonny, sam, or dante

Anonymous said...

sorry but I happen to know many people who love Lucky and siobhan but don't worry, liz always gets everything she wants no matter how many times she lies, cheats and goes behind someone's back so you'll have your lovely jj-rh reunion soon. i just hope she doesn't go for ethan right after that and gets pregnant again... i'm surprised she still hasn't been with Luke or Lulu, for that matter. Liz and Liz fans always win, don't ever doubt about that.

1) The entire week of Feb. 28 to Mar. 4.
2) Sam McCall in all of her venues. Even the mob enforcer deserves better than this piece of fluff.
3) Carly and her machinations. She still hasn't been called to task for her interfering.
4) Sonny on another yet ineffective rampage. All bluster and no results.
5) Theo Hoffman, the Balkan, who is suddenly ready to take his wife's head off in his attempt to resurrect his brat of a son.
6) Liz and her babies by different fathers, none of whom she was married to.
7) Lisa's continued attempts to shove Terrell into Robin Scorpio's life. BORING. Apparently the only virtue Lisa has is persistence. How much longer is this silly storyline going to continue?

I am sure I could make the list longer, but why bother. Nothing is happening on GH. The "development" of plots on the show take forever. Viewers are long since bored with the conflict long before it is resolved. Repetitious dialog does not heighten the tension or develop characters or plot. Would somebody in charge please get a clue.

bumchickabowbow said...

...and Karen, Large Marge ruled!

I'm just grouchy about the impending tragedy.

kdmask said...

I thought it was 18 months. (Contract for VM)

Rhonda said...

Last Anon: Really? I have to ask, ARE YOU HIGH? Liz fans get what they want? Most of us wanted Liason, but a L&L2 reunion was a close 2nd. If you haven't noticed, we got neither. We loved Liz's bff friendship with Emily, but we lost that too. We loved Liz's scenes with Gram, but haven't had those in literally years. Liz sleeping with Nik disgusted every single one of us. And breaking Lucky's heart was just too much to bare esp with JJ in the role. let's not forget, it's the writers' choice to make Liz have 3 kids by 3 different men. Ala Carly, Alexis, and many others. Now to have her lose her child it's just wrong. And so are you, BTW.

@anonymous #6

You're kidding, right? LIZ get everything she wants? LOL. Far from the truth. If that was the case, she would have Jason, their son, and her kids living under one roof, with having to have nothing to worrying about but what's her next painting. Instead, she's a struggling, hardworking single mother of three, who doesn't get nor have Jason, Lucky, or Nikolas. Not to mention her son about to be taken away from her. I find it funny though that you blame Liz for everything, and call her out on her cheating, when LUCKY was the one who started this chain of destruction. Do you not remember him cheating on Liz for months w/ Maxi, and partaking in drugs, which led Liz into the arms of her hurt, long friend/ex of 7 years (in '06)? So commenter, PLEASE get real. If it's anyone that gets what they want, it's Sam. She's been whitewashed, almost totally absolved of her crimes against Liz's son, able to get unforgivable minded Jason back after putting his son in danger, and may have her miracle baby w/ Jason, all while Liz and Jake got the shaft because of "danger", having to watch ex and daddy be madly in love w/ someone who endangered their child. So spare, me PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

Don't worry guys, I'm sure Liz will get back with Lucky soon, especially now that JJ is back and especially now that she has been rehired.

Anonymous said...

Oh come on, Lucky was a drug addict when he cheated on Liz, and maxie was the one providing him with painkillers, whereas she was absolutely healthy and fine, she is the who decided to go after jason and she was always like stalking him pretending to be a good friend. She was even there when poor baby Lila died!

Rhonda said...

"Pretending" to be a good friend? Wow. They have been friends for over a decade. But ok. Oh and BTW, she's a nurse which is why she was in the hospital. unreal!

Oh and let me guess, it was ok for Sam to hire people to threaten innocent children, watch a baby get kidnapped, and sleep with her mothers husband? It was pretty much her fault that jason slept with Liz.

Anonymous said...

Sam is so slutty and Liz is so good. This is what enrages people.

Pia said...

I don;t know that liz is good, but some of the comments anon was making was a little sickening. Wow. I guess this blog never ceases to amaze me, the hate is so visible.

Anonymous said...

Who cares Lucky was addicted to painkillers! Point is, he was completely coherent in what he was doing. He wasn't raped, or screwed unconsciously. No matter his condition, it happened, and it spurred on that night of Liason. You make it seem like Liz has been pining for Jason, just waiting for any excuse to "seduce" him. WRONG! Liz's dependence on Jason through Lucky's drug addiction was nothing out of character and something that has been done for years before Sam ever came to town. Liz leaned on Jason through Lucky's death, and Jason leaned on Liz after giving up Michael. It was natural for Liz to confide in Jason, nothing was new under the sun, and if it wasn't for Sam and Lucky hurting the people who cared for them, Jason and Liz wouldn't have gave into complicated, frustrated love for one another.

Looks like a Liason vs. Jasam war is brewing... started by a Jasam fan as usual. I just don't get. Why you guys have to be so offensive about a pairing that are no more and their fans is baffling to me. You Jasam fans are getting everything you want and have TPTB on your side, so why feel so threatened over Liz? If anything were to be a sign of TPTB's dislike for the character Liz and Liason, I would think the killing off of their child and only connection (being that they're not allowed in one another's orbit)would be damning evidence.

To think Liz has some sort of powers of persuasion is crazy, because if so, she surely needs to sharpen up on her abilities. The girl is alone, spent a whole year guilt-ridden, and berated by the Spencers (deserving or not), raising 3 BOYS single-handedly, with a demanding nursing job, while all of the other men in her life are "merrily, blissfully in love". If she's not feeling useless, worthless, depressed, stressed, etc., then she must not be human. GIVE LIZ A BREAK, SHEESH!

Viki said...

I have to agree with the others who opposed to the former Anon’s ridiculous claims that Liz and Liz fans actually get what we want. That so, huh? What show are YOU watching exactly? Are we talking about the same Liz who’s alone while the father of her children are off gallivanting with other women? Are we talking about the same Liz who barely gets screen time? Are we talking about the same Liz who gets crappy storylines, if ANY? Are we talking about the same Liz who was almost gone from our screens just a few months ago, as her portrayer was wrongly fired? Are we talking about the same Liz who barely gets lines when she’s even IN a scene? CLEARLY, we’re not watching the same GH or Elizabeth Webber unfold on our screens if you honestly think for one second that she ACTUALLY gets what she wants onscreen. Add in the fact that they might kill off Jake and she just might go crazy, oh yeah, her life’s a real peach, I’ll say. GMAFB. It’s one thing not to like the character, but to say she gets everything she wants is more than beyond ridiculous and untrue.

And STALKING Jason? We’re talking the same Jason who willingly slept with her that night and beyond, right? The same Jason who had always been there for her, right? The same Jason who said time and time again that he loved her, right? The same Jason who had remained her friend for years and years until TPTB decided that having them in the same room with one another didn’t suit the top brass PronZ, who CLEARLY is in love with JaSam. Uh, right, okay. He really thought she was stalking him through all of that. What a blind fool he was.
