NOTE: YES, THIS Blog is up early due to the holiday tomorrow...I shall be donning my bonnet and eating Jelly Beans!!
Woo. What a wild week, eh?? The Hoover news knocked us all into gear...then Oprah brought us back down to Earth by "gently" reminding us, it's all about the money, honey.
There are rallies scheduled for Tuesday the 26th...petitions to sign, groups to join. Some people are angry--some people are active, some people are coming to grips with what looks like the reality of it all. I do love the notion we are making noise--it's just hard to keep it up when even the actors shout it down.
I've written two of my fave blogs this week: 5 Stages of Soapy Grief and So, How Crazy ARE Soap Fans?? They say it all. I've put up Addresses to write to for both sponsors and studio heads. Joined in discussions, brainstorming ideas and letter writing hoopla. There are other things coming next week to help with the efforts as well.
How are you feeling about all of this? I'm pretty sad and tired lately. It makes it double hard that GH is just so badly written right now I can't see anything worth praising it for. I know Tony Geary's performance for the "intervention" will be fab the 28th-- I get that, but when it's over, then what?? May Sweeps will be about: "The Real Lucian", "Mabby Murder" and "Krissy is Drugged". Uh, nothing that makes my heart stir. You know I'm loving OLTL, so it is hard to watch that show rock, and the ratings finally rise up, only to know it's going to be canceled.
I did have a brilliant idea earlier in the week, I really want HBO or Showtime to pick up OLTL and show some naked Ford Brother action. Hee hee. Do you realize that AMC only has 5 more months to air and OLTL 8?? Wow.
I do want to mention a few things about GH (how could I not, right?!). First of all, who knew Crazy Lisa would STILL be around by this time?? What the hell? I mean, keep her for Johnny and to have another doc on staff but to still mess with Scrubs ?? zzzzz. Drugging Krissy? Come on. Makes me wonder how many times we'll see ol' Terrell around. heh. I also have to laugh about the whole "Where's Maya" stuff going on. Johnny said she "stayed in Vegas". Geesh, don't spend too much on that story exit. Carly is driving me insane. Please, just Shut up for one day. Her pushing Sam's womb was pretty funny. And rather odd, given their history. Siobhan? Well, I guess the INS is being kind with it's extensions. Liz and the Aiden reveal? zzzzz another snoozer, although I am happy Maxie and she are talking. Poor Jax-- sorry but this Shawn thing is just inserted very awkwardly and makes little sense. I guess it gives more time to put Jax in the path of Brenda, right??
Mabner..Mabby--Michael and Abby and the murder NO ONE cares about. This story is so bad, so boring and so utterly stupid I can't even remark on it. The scenes in the PCPD have been done to death. Then, we'll get Michael "confessing" to save Abby. :eyeroll: One saving grace? Anthony Z is back, talking to plants like they are his dead daughter: SCORE!!
Please don't get all in my face for criticizing GH right now, when I should be on the bandwagon. GH is safe for at least a year, and if the writing is crummy, I'm going to say so. I'm a big cheerleader for the show but also an unforgiving critic. GH in my book, is wasting it's last legs in mindless stories that hold little interest.
Hope you have a wonderful Easter if you so celebrate-- find lots of eggs and chocolate bunnies. I was thinking about poor Morgan, you think he's still at camp or what!? LOL NOTE: People told me he was at Sonny's Birthday Party, which I missed. Whoops. Bad day to miss GH--when more than 2 people were in the room!!
