Oh yes...The Junior Mint. Those of you that are Seinfeld fans know just what I'm talking about. That moment when the Junior Mint floats down...down...down... into the operation! That's exactly how I feel right now--waiting for that dang Junior Mint to fall. Will it change GH forever for REAL this time? Will the patient survive? Be a sweet addition to the procedure? Kill it all together? What!!? Junior Mint anticipation is killing me!
If you haven't seen the Junior Mint bit on Seinfeld, go to You Tube and search. It's worth it.
GH this week--hit and miss. It's got that schitzo feel to it. Kate's big revelation seemed to be to be coming out of left field. And why the hell go to Chicago? Is she really seeing Mulva's husband? hee hee...or maybe going to the place Abby was killed? Chicago seems to be a Wolf-go to place. Ok--whatever. Watching Kate crying about "being Kate" eh? I didn't care. You get shot at your wedding to a mobster and then go back to him after he totally dumped you (in part) for the "true love of his life"?? You deserve to be messed up.
So! Johnny's reeling from his Daddy/Mama issues. I really wish his scenes with Tracy were longer. She knew the guy-- we even could have had some "The City" Flashbacks? Carly butting in is a twist I guess. I am feeling sometimes though she's being more of a "mom" to him than a potential lover. Brandon Barash continues to impress though. Smelling an Emmy! Loved the director's touches with the Johnny close ups. Nicely done.
The stripper thing better tie up like yesterday. I know it was supposed to be Ronnie in the first drafts, and hopefully they stick to that. The reason he attacked Dolores is because she doesn't believe the evidence. Which is stupid btw, because by attacking someone else, it totally makes it look like they haven't caught the guy. ANYWAY-- I'm hoping this is over soon!!
Speaking of over soon--PLEASE tell me that the Lady In White is going BYE BYE!! SEE YOU LATER! Plus, having her in White all the time (still) is driving me insane. Thank GOD Helena showed up Friday. Just slit her throat and get it over with. I really hope she's not Laura's "other" Daughter because that's too tidy. Plus, Genie's not there-- and neither is Tyler!! Parapet time. Poor Nathan Parsons, just when I was loving his easy charm on the screen, he's leaving. wah. You deserved better.
Diane and Alexis. Ok, the menopause thing is wearing thin but I do like my comedy. Why they played strip pool in the middle of a semi-crowded bar is beyond me. But hey-- it worked once, you know GH, TRY IT 40 more times lol! NLG is embracing it so I will too. Good to see Mac as well. Even if his hair did change length all week!
Olivia and Steve. I love Lisa LoCicero--I hate this stupid story. I hate Maggie, don't care about Nashville and think Olivia should just deck her and get it over with. Steve is a whimpy jerk and he needs to either get a personality or leave. There, I said it. Take the tanning bed with you.
Ewan. Bye. Don't like you either. Shirtless or not. And STOP with the stupid therapy techniques. (Wait until you see the dang thing he does with Cassandra next week lol)
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Hands down JMB and TG scene on the Haunted Star. Knocked it out of the park. Awesome dialog--great acting. When she cut her hand and he held it and said "did you hurt yourself baby"?? The look on her face?? perfection. The character of Lulu may grate on my nerves now and again but Julie just hits the mark every dang time.
NOT the SCENE of the WEEK: Cassandra and Ethan walking around like love birds. ugh. No Spark no nothing---and hey, introduce her to Luke or Lulu. Has he done that yet? Maybe he has and I missed it. I usually nap during their scenes.
Some intriguing news broke about Jack Wagner leaving BB and of course the speculation that maybe he'd be back to GH. I wonder if Kris would come back too--Flea and Frisco!! YEAH!! They'd have no clue who Maxie is! LOL. GH is going to be a reunion fest soon, and looking totally '80's style. The Fund Raiser is going BOOM in the ROOM and I'm hearing it's Faison. The mob and the police will work together against a common evil. Anders Hove won't be able to smoke anymore because Disney banned it. Heh..what will he do? Would they let him have those electronic ciggs? Hee hee.
Thank you for supporting the WUBS-- visiting sponsors helps so much! The days of GH are probably winding down now. We'll have to find something in common to dish about. Anna and Starr will hit the canvas soon (separately) and I'm excited for that. Should be an interesting month!!! Have a good week and go get yourself some...Junior Mints!!
