Ah... leave it to GH-- throw the baby out with the bathwater. As if fans are reeling enough from Tyler, Vanessa and Ingo's departure, we get a NuKate and now a Kristina recast. I am assuming NuKate happened because they didn't like Megan Ward's "look". We know it wasn't her acting. The newbie is years younger and blonde. Now, they are going to "change" Kristina so she "fits" better with Ethan and presumably, Johnny. I can only guess that this is going in the "mob" direction of Johnny using Krissy as a tool to get to Sonny, then probably falling in "real" love with her. Because, that story has never been done, right?
I've watched soaps since I was a kid-- and that's a LONG TIME. I've seen a million recasts over the years. Some good, some bad, some disastrous and yes, some great. Here's the thing: GH is on it's LAST LEGS. why they want to mess with anything like recasting a good actress and a fave is beyond me.
Let's see. Kristina is 19, just graduated HS and looking for a direction in life. She has the body of a model, and is very young looking sooooo, why not have her get into the big/bad world of fashion instead of going to college? Easy money vs Education? This could involve Crimson--and a whole slew of stories. Also, Michael is paired with an older woman as well. HE looks 19, she looks way older but THAT'S ok. Sure, Chad/Drew were switched but not for nothin, Michael doesn't look a day over 19, imo. Why not Re-Recast him? Abby looks about 33--why not recast the GUY?!! hmmm. Wonder why. Can't wait to see the 'body type' they get for the new Krissy.
The other reason I'm so upset is because the "Davis Girls" have really been on a roll since the whole Keifer story. I love Molly/Krissy/Sam with Alexis. They are a unit. We've seen them grow. Now? Doesn't matter. Doesn't matter Lexi got an emmy nod either. Talent doesn't seem to matter sheeze all to casting.
There are already Ethina fans out there that love this couple. There's a tiny minority saying Kristina looks too young. In reality, Lexi is 19 and Nathan is 23. That should be enough to shut people up, imo. I say DON'T PAIR HER WITH JOHNNY if that's the problem!! Freaking write something original!!
CASTING better bring it. And do a HELL OF A BETTER job than they have with "Dolores"!! (Good GOD--she's awful). I certainly won't hold anything against the new girl but she'd better knock my socks off. There's a NuDoc coming too--and don't forget the Gothic "Lady In White". I'm also hoping Kirsten Storms makes it back. GH isn't going to look anything like GH in a bit.
On to the usual Rotation of the week-- even though my heart isn't in it.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I'm going with Ethan and Lucky's talk about Wyndemere an cracking jokes about Helena. It was a natural, good feeling scene. Nathan Parsons contines to impress me with his ease in the role. It was one time Lucky wasn't crying his face off or on the floor looking for pills.
NOT SCENE OF THE WEEK: That Panic Room Sheeze. I get that Shawn is "hot" and he and Carly might "do it" but for them to be stuck that long, talking about nothing was really a bore.
PS: from Daytime Confidential:
On a positive note, Lexi went on to tweet she's booked a movie role opposite soap alums Eric Roberts and Vivica A. Fox. The flick is called So This Is Christmas and Roberts and Fox will portray her dad and stepmom
By the way, I'm probably going to be more of a bitch on this show this week, so beware. LOL The Blog may not be for the faint of heart.
