Well, welcome to our re-org.
You know I'm a champion of the greatest soap I see right now on TV: OLTL. You also know I love the writing of Ron C. To have him come over WITH the same EP that did that soap? :THUD: I can't quite wrap my head around it. Guza, JFP, Frons and Co. had a hold on GH for so long it's not fathomable what could happen. ANYTHING can happen. ANYTHING.
Ah, that so intrigues me!! There's been a boys-town attitude at the show forever. Women are shrews, abused and shoved into stupid situations daily. Yes, OLTL has their share of strippers, gold diggers and victims but they somehow have a brain and great character. I can only hope it translates to GH. Don't let FV's statement fool you, he doesn't want to alienate the fans of GH by suggesting huge changes now. They'll work with the frame and then tweek. I'm also not a fool, to save GH it's going to take a giant act of mother nature. Period-- with Couric coming? We can only hope one of the newer shows in the daytime fails.
There is also going be endless speculation on who's staying and going. Will any OLTL characters be brought over (or actors)?? Wishlists will be all over. I'm sure I'll have mine-- but my biggest wish? That GH gets back to constant, fluid, great STORYTELLING. Everything else? Window decoration. We know there are awesome actors at the ready. Let's get cooking on some great stuff.
The new team is officially coming in January, meaning by Feb sweeps we'll see the big changes. In the meantime, there are going to be a lot of anxious actors on the set of GH. Old favorites might not be getting the 78,000 hours of airtime as they have in the past. On OLTL the character integration is phenomenal. There's going to be a lot of budget cutting and fat-trimming as well. It's almost like we'll be watching and waiting for 2 whole months knowing it all could be changed or gone.
FRONS is out!! . In a span of 7 months Guza, Jill and now Frons have left the ABC daytime canvas. Why it didn't happen a couple of years ago is beyond me. We know the damage that's been done. I don't even think GH is slated to be on a lot of fall schedules. Then again, if a miracle happens and it gets ratings rivaling Y&R?? Who knows... we could all hunt down the Nielson boxers and force them to watch.
SCENES OF THE WEEK: I had to go with two...Robin on the bridge and Monica's freak out with Pat, Steve then Luke. Kim was stellar and Leslie was back in her bitchy Monica days. Ah, it was glorious to watch.
NOT the SCENE OF THE WEEK: ugh.. Carly blabbering her mouth off to Shawn about..well, absolutely nothing.
The whole SKate in the hotel, out of the hotel..in the hotel stuff was boring too. I loved how they left and then came back to talk about it-- we never saw ANY of it!! LOL.. Tomorrow Sonny will be inside his House O'Pain!! We know Maurice will be great, but revisiting this so far along when it's been done, done, done and without Mike Corbin? Oy.
In the Future: Looks Like LuLu and Dante are getting hitched the week of Dec. 19th with Olivia and Sonny looking on. Awwww. Think Luke will make it? Anyone from Lulu's side? Ethan is going to get trapped in Wyndemere. Liz will be wandering around Shadybrook. Franco should get shot by Jason.
Have a good one! I am hoping this week is a bit calmer on the soapie front. I could use the rest!
