Oh what a week. The ups, the downs, the announcements--the sheer upset and joy watching a well written show ride off into the sunset in such a great way. That, coupled with starting my new job just about pushed me into heart palpitations. In one way, I loved it. It was like the old days when I'd literally run from the bus to my house to catch the last 15min of OLTL before GH started. I couldn't wait to watch then, and I couldn't wait to watch this whole week. The writers didn't let me down!
Ok, enough waxing poetic about OLTL. This blog is about the other end of the spectrum... the reason for a bypass surgery: GH.
Franco's dead. Well, we think he is. I say have Jason drive a wooden stake through his heart, cut off his head and stuff his mouth with garlic. That's the way you know a vampire is really dead in Stephen King's "Salem's Lot" . I thought it was hilarious how Jason kept shooting him then yelled 'WHAT'? In his face like Franco would suddenly be able to answer with a mouth full of blood. Now we shall never know the "secret". Of course I think the secret is he is really Jason's twin "Freida" who was doing a dramatic art project prancing around as a male. That's how much this drawn out boring villian story has been. You know, tense stories need to be told in a relatively short period of time to keep them, well....tense.
Do I even have to talk about Steve and Olivia and what's her name? Lisa? NO....that's not it. Oh, yeah, Maggie. Scott Reeve's hyperventilation during his scenes with her drove me nuts. Olivia should have gone in and smacked Maggie right off the bat instead of heading to Sonny's. Whatever. That whole "Nashville" thing is wearing thin. "We went through something that bound us together forever" -- well, unless you tell us what it is REAL SOON Maggie, we'll be beyond caring.
Carly. OMG, I bet boots Laura Wright read her script and did a double take. Then set it down, shook her head and headed for the wine cellar. (she's got a giant one) It's just all kinds of wrong to have a Mom go prostitute herself out to "save her son" from the local mobular Jr. boss. Hell, you have all kinds of money, bribery works a lot better in that world. You have no idea how much I want Michael to walk into that warehouse and be buried in bags of coffee up to his neck.
Oh, Luke came back. To help Carly out. Pause. Let that sink in. HE came back to HELP Carly out. No words.
Sonny got shot Friday...do you think he'll LIVE??!! I'm so scared!! NOT. *sigh*
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Robin asks...no begs Liz to take over her life when she leaves because she thinks she'll die of AIDS. Nevermind she's not sure how long that may take or that Patrick might not appreciate the gesture or that Robin Scorpio would never actually utter those words; there it was. It rang hollow and smacked of stupid-writing. Yes, I said it. Stupid-writing. (Say it like one word: Stupid-writing!)
FUNNY of the WEEK: Carly's sweater. Reminded me of a certain part of an uncircumsized anatomy.
Monday is going to be sad. I'm home because of MLK day and OLTL will be gone and that Revulsion show will air right after The Spew. :Sobbing: Not only that, the only soap I'll be able to talk about is GH!! In the coming weeks I will introduce the OLTL people that are coming over so those that have no idea at least have some back-story. Have a great Sunday!
