Well, we got confirmation that after a year of bungled "Comeback" Vanny is leaving GH. I don't know what makes me the most mad--the time, the money or the total lack of vision from Guza for a decent story for all of this. I'm blaming Guza 900% for writing that crap, he's headwriter. Even IF the "higher ups" help direct how a show goes, I surely doubt they came up with Brenda being in Rome forever with her "fiance" and thugs tracking her down. I remember an interview Guza gave with SID trying to explain the need for a 'backstory' for Brenda after all her time gone. Yeah...we needed a backstory, just not a STUPID one that took eons to tell.
Robin Christopher was brought back...remember that? As soon as we found out VM was coming, all of a sudden all Skye did was stand around. Then, she was gone. Kinda like when Emma Samms came back and didn't make it out of the Haunted Star. Claire was a casualty too--not that I was a huge Claire fan but having her in a story, then evaporate was another waste of my damn time.
The ratings went even MORE south after one of GH's most popular actresses came back. What does that say about anything? Hell, Guza should have left LAST year if this was the outcome. (ok, about six years ago if you're really counting. LOL)
I say that..and now comes the awful realization that no matter what we do, GH is probably going to be history sometime in 2012. I've heard too much lately and even I, a fighter is just throwing up the hands. Garin Wolf can't save the show, unless he totally retools it. I hear that John Ingle and Leslie C are taping so MAYBE there's hope for some Q interaction. Will it last more than a few days? I sure hope so.
Becky's out when the Aidan reveal comes-- not her fault but a letdown none the less. Kristina and Ethan are going to end up doing the same exact scene Luke and Laura did and many others while they are in the Dominican Republic. I have to say, I can't wait to see Alexis and Sonny together though. THAT will be fun.
This week's glimmers of hope: Dorky yet fun Maxie/Krissy dress up scene. Tracy and Lulu. Mac was on and got to arrest the right person!! WOOT! Of course there was way too much Jax/Carly harping-- JaSam sitting on that dang couch and Mabby crap to last me a lifetime. Isn't it funny this is all about her killing some guy that we didn't even care about?
More glimmers: Leslie and John (Monica and Edward) both taped last week!! Connie Towers will be back doing her evil Helena. There is hope. HOPE. I hope there's hope!
Oh, fun thing: Steve Burton tweeted he was getting fitted for a suit, sending JaSam fans all a TWITTER with the spec the wedding was coming!
One Life to Live was a bit of a letdown this week after all the Todd build up. When will writers learn we want people back LIKE NOW...not sitting in a room somewhere (or in Rome) for days? There was the Matthew trauma though... can't wait until this week.
We said goodbye to Oprah. Her last show made me feel like I was in church a bit. Ok, a LOT. LOL. I liked her hooplah shows more-- all the acts and glitter. Of course her leaving makes me think about that 4pm time slot. Our local affiliate hasn't decided yet--Dr Oz or local news?? Of course, everyone is waiting to see if Couric goes to 4pm or ...gulp 3.
The Casey Anthony trial is unlike anything I've ever seen. I read a LOT of True Crime (Ann Rule and I even wrote to each other for a time)--and am really an obsessive pill about I.D. TV and all that jazz. One shocker after another. Heartbreaking. I personally think Casey put Caylee to "sleep" using chloroform and then she die. Casey then spent forever covering it up, moving her body and the like. Years of lies caught up with her. Her parents wanted to believe her so badly that she didn't do it--and now? They have to concede. That pool story?? Good Lord. Watching the trial btw, makes all soaps look tame!!
Scene of the Week: Anthony Z tied to the chair in duct tape, wanting his nose scratched.
GH actor tweets:@Lisalocicerogh to @Reevesforreal: here's the plan: you guys get sparkly platform booties & matching bellbottom jumpsuits & Port Chuck becomes Prince cover band
@billywarlock (AJ Q) They all made the fatal mistake of abandoning core characters. Although, CBS didn't do that and the 2 shows they have are still strong. note: About GH's demise and ABC Soaps in general
@Stuart-Damon: Happiness is not in our circumstances, but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire.
@LESLIECHARELSON (monica) tweeted a LOT about Guza leaving: (she chatted with Steve Burton)
**Monica and Jason have had so many missed opportunities under Guza over the years.
**But with new writers at the helm, we're hoping we can recover some of the rich history and get the relationship back on track.
Robin Strasser from OLTL is the one to follow, btw...she goes on rampages that are pretty funny. LOL @robinstrasser
