Now...this definition from Wikipedia describes perfectly last week's GH. Not only should Olivia and Steven succumbed o the condition, many of us viewers should have as well. Shivering and "mental confusion"!! THAT'S what was happening to me all week after the show!!
Good Lord, where do I start. How about the news of MVJ leaving the writing staff and another newbie coming aboard. Soon we'll have Maggie (NuDoc #1), Ewan (NuDoc #2) and "African American kid". There's a bunch of day players on during Lucky's Ireland trip--which should have started like, yesterday btw. Of course, we aren't seeing any of our beloved characters returning to the set as of yet. Well, something that looks like Siobhan will appear. Erin Chambers isn't done with GH after all.
Helena was on for 2.5 seconds to taunt Ethan. That was it. Ummmmmm, why? Why not have her on more? Doing REAL STUFF? Where's Edward been? Monica? Those new characters like "Asher"?? Where did that thread go? Where are the ELQ offices? :throwing up hands:
Ok, this week. How was the pacing for you? Johnny was on the floor--then not seen for 3 days, then shown Friday still in the same spot, reaching for his cell phone. That was it, they didn't show him again. AZ was on the dock, pulled out by Maxie, bleeding-- then shows up on the boat that's already launched out to sea. THEN he's gone again on Friday. Just gone.
Bringing Joss to Hawaii: Worst Decision of the Decade
The JaSam honeymoon is such a mess, I can't even begin to describe it. I suppose catching a glimpse of Franco wrapping up a baby in tissue paper should make us shudder. The simple fact that Carly dragged Joss across the country right into "Franco-Territory" is so stupid it's embarrassing.
Naked Guitar Guy
BUT! The worst part BY FAR was the "Party"for Matt on the boat which turned into a Sex Cruise. HAHAHAA. They go out for a few hours and we get: Scrubs Sex, Stevia sex and skinny dipping (in October no less). Everyone was acting like a 15 year old at a make-out party. Then, Steve, while drinking champagne actually says on Friday he has to get back to work soon. Uh... okayyyy. Don't want to be your patient, buddy. Lisa is of course, running around with a pocket full of syringes. What should have been a tense, exciting story became a comical bore.
More airtime than Alexis!
Sprinkled in the week was a weird Lulu/Sonny conversation where she drank Sonny's left over scotch at the end (ewww). SKate shennigans (with a bit of Deke angst throw in), I think some coffee bag hauling by Michael and then Mulva (Dolores) going off on Dante in the hospital. Wow. Luke crabbed around town and Ethan was dragging Laura behind him.
One thing a good story needs is consistency and flow. What we are seeing now is a bunch of stuff thrown together. Literally thrown. I think the scripts were on the floor and got shuffled all around. I kept waiting for something ANYTHING to grab my attention. *sigh* not to be. Not to be. There are two psychos running around and it was still as boring as hell!
BEFORE YOU YELL at me for being such a bitch about the show, I'm saying right now I'm not going to give GH a pass because it's the last soap standing. Wolf needs to bring it and bring it FAST. While I wasn't on board as much as others in the beginning of all this, at least there seemed to be more integration and a different direction. HA! Well. Geesh, that ended quick. GH is like the your hometown football team, you bitch when they suck for ages but you still love them to death. Unfortunately OUR team relies on the ratings which are still behind OLTL in most categories (rightfully so, that show rocks). I guess it's true that ABC wants to squash it no matter what.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Anything with Ethan in it. He seems like the only actor that is genuinely having fun anymore. He was a sparkle in the dull canvas. Kudos to Nathan Parsons for really growing in his role. Who'd a thunk he was the best Spencer Standing? (ie: No whining/no drinking/drugging).
NOT the SCENE OF THE WEEK: When Anthony shows up on the boat. A collective scream went up on twitter because it was so implausible it looked like a gaff. HOW the hell did he get there??
RUNNER UP: Row boat mess with RentAMaxie and Spin. Talk about filler chatter.
