Seems GH has had a little life breathed into it! With the ratings gaining a lot of steam, I'm sure TPTB are riding high. Can they sustain those numbers? I'm doubtful, but that's me...cynical and not hopeful when it comes to this regime. Especially for what's coming next.
We're going back there. Back in time to when a little kid gave her heart to another little kid. Done beautifully at the time, with beloved GH characters. This too will be with beloved GH characters but can it be done as well? Hmmmm. Perhaps. There will be a tight production on it, focusing on a single story. GH does those very well. People are happy that Becky is staying. We'll be getting great Liason, L&L2 and Jasam scenes. Can't hit many more fan bases than that. How do you feel about it all? Great TV or too painful to watch? Some are upset that the last tie to Liason may be severed. Some think it might jump start something between the couple. Others see it as a sacrifice to a higher storyline. I as always, have to wait to see how it's written. Much like the wedding, it was all in the writing for me. Meaning, when it came down to it, GH failed again to hold my interest.
The wedding fizzled fairly soon after the reveal -- the "reception" was largely a joke, save some improv from NLG, Tony and Lisa LoCicero. You know my feelings on the shoddy editing sequences and time lines. The aftermath? Sam going deaf for 1 day? LOL. Oh well-- it's over and now Brenda's wandering around the woods, ready to be captured by Theo. We'll see the butler stabbed just as he's telling Sonny about his lady-love. Then the find, the neurotoxins setting in, yada yada. This week will be about finding Brenda...Michael's mobular fixation---- the set up for Lucky/Sibohan wedding and the Jake/Joss tragedy.
Back to baby Jake. I'm puzzled about the choice for this-- I wonder if Cam is just too big to give a kidney...because hello--- Cam is not connected to any bio father on canvas. I love Cameron though, he is the cutest kid in daytime. Not that we see him anymore...but I guess that's not the point. How about Spencer? Heck, that kids so invisible I can't even remember what age he is anymore (he's been SORA'd...and De-Sora'd so many times, who can keep track). If they wanted a riveting story, have it be a Cam/Spencer transplat or something. I don't know. This just seems so wrong. It also strikes me that with CarJax in the place they are, what is this all about for them? Sigh. Like I said, we'll have to see how it plays out.
In the meantime, give me more DAVIS GIRLS!! How fun were they??! I really want Sam to go to the Lake House and "recoop" with the family. We so need more of that. Maybe Alexis and Jax will get together now that Carly's tossed him out.
Fave Scene of the week: Davis girls giggle on Sam's hospital bed!!
Things I want to see go: Get rid of Brooke. Just do it already...she was brought in for the dropped Dante "revenge" thing and she's just kinda floated around. Nikolas should have been with Liz, bonding big time with Aiden so when the baby DNA comes in we CARE. Having him fall for the chick he's 'paying' to "accompany" him to "Events" we never see is zzzzzzzzzzz. Beyond belief boring. Next up, Lisa IS DONE. She's SO DONE it's painful. Again, they are starting/stopping this whole story, they bring in Terrell ... it's just a mess. Tony Geary's leaving again so there goes the Spanky fun. Lucky's marrying Oyrish--and I know there are a lot of Lush fans out there but...esh. Another boring story. The only rumor that's really intriguing me is that Abby may be connected to the Balkan. I can't see it happening because Mabby seem to be Guza's uber-couple right now. We shall see.
Interesting NOTE: GH is going to do two redux stories within one month of each other (Lily clickboom and BJ's heart). Good use of history or lazy writing? You decide.
Hope your week was a good one. Did you watch Charlie Sheen's Ustream last night? Good God, it so showed the need for writers!! LOL... Genius in that he made money, really really lame on the delivery.
