NOPE. Back to Bensonhurst we go... moping all the way. Here's my wish:
Sonny is a diagnosed manic-depressive. Let's explore HOW to help people like him -- not send him back into the dark abyss of a childhood that frankly, has been way, way overdone. We've heard more about Sonny's past life than all the other characters on GH combined. Stick ball, getting jealous of Kate in the car with "Tommy" (insert Italian last name), him getting left at the corner. Pasta nights... Olivia lovin'... yada yada. He's claustrophobic.. he's bipolar. He's a criminal that's had enough "soul mates" to fill a large minivan.
Why would Kate have a Star Tatt?
The first time "SKate" was done it was a bit fresh because we hadn't heard eons of tales about 'the hood' since Lois left town. I remember the two of them hold up in some room during the Black and White Ball talking non-stop for HOURS about "the good Ol' Days". *sigh* Please spare us MORE of this.
Olivia came on, swillin' beer at the old Bensonhurst haunt, supported "Connie" but only half-heatedly because she was marring a mob man...one she didn't even tell she was PG with her kid because he was such a gangster. NOW however, Olivia can go to Kate (absent for months) and beg her to help Sonny. All I could flash to was Olivia feeding Sonny pasta sauce from the pot while Dante looked on, seething. Remember?? --when Olivia was suddenly Sonny's soulmate and mama to his kid? YEP.
My painful CHILDHOOD MUST be EXPLORED to it's FULLEST!
The past Sonny dramaz was Guza, this stuff coming is all Wolf. Will it be any different now?? People have shunned Sonny in the past...his family has been gravely hurt in the past...he's been at the bottom in the past --will this make any damn difference this time?? Will Kate FINALLY be THE ONE to change him and not get 'hurt' (physical or mental) in the process?? 2 to 1 that she or someone close to her will get maimed, threatened or bombed in the next mob show-down. Can't wait :eyeroll:
I would like to see Sonny NOT HAVE a woman "save" him for the next... let's say 5 months. Get him stabilized, meds-- sort out that damn childhood then maybe think about some tail.
This also brings us to NuKate...verdict yet?? I didn't see Friday's show so can't say other than she delivers the lines much like Megan (I think she watched tapes) and really, really needs a new hairstyle.
It needs a little fava bean sauce...
Scene of the Week: although Anthony is turning cartoonish, the scene that popped into my head while thinking about this past week was him eating tongue in front of Tracy. Inspired. Tongue. Heh.
NOT The Scene of the Week: Anything having to do with that idiotic "kidnapping" of Liz and Maxie. Good gravy, it was like Cartoon Network exploded with stupidness on my screen.
PS. From Daytime Confidential: General Hospital was ABC’s least watched soap for the week. Which has been happenin' a LOT lately, eh?
See who won last week's Soapy Death Match on the WUBS NET!! Vote in this week's THREE WAY!
GOOD BYE to All My Children, in it's last week's run on Network TV. Forgive me if I wax poetic during this time because it is one of my childhood memories! I've been reading about the CyberSoap venture and hope our shows turn out exciting, fresh and maybe a little tweaked.
