"Springtime for Hitler"...
Think about it. GH is actually the George Costanza's "opposite" of The Producers. In that film, they were putting on a show that was almost guaranteed to be a hit but wanted a flop so it closed. On the show, they are putting on a hit but want it to be a hit so it stays...but we know it will probably close. That's the WACKY BUSINESS OF HOLLYWEIRD! YEPPER!. GH is getting watchable again and I'm happy. I have been for about 2 weeks. Things started shifting and morphing into something I didn't want to fall asleep during.
So, dear Wubbers, Read On to see the magic that is unfolding at our little studio:
We fans deserve so much. We deserve a history and vets and good ol' SOAP STUFF!! WE do! Guza took all that from us. We had a shell of a soap with hardly any core families left. Having Anna walk in made me melt. I just know this time it may be done right and I'm giddy! GIDDY I tell you!! Just humor me ok-- just humor the Wubqueen. She needs it.
So, the Robin story is becoming interesting. On OLTL I even liked the unpopular stories/deaths because the TELLING OF THE TALE was excellent. Not having her linger on the bed with AIDS is ironic yet a great touch, imo.The possibility of an older specter haunting the Scorpios? Brilliant. The fact I get to have some great '80's vets in the mix? Delicious!!
SCENE of the WEEK: I had a toss up between this and Anna's homecoming. I have to say that Brandon B's performance as the drunken Johnny at the Gala was spot-on. What followed: Sonny's selfish "Claudia's Johnny's Mama" Speech was brilliant as well.
LOOK AT THAT EXTRA waiter in the back!! LOL.
NOT the SCENE OF THE WEEK: OMG..please the WHITE WOMAN OF WYNDEMERE---SIT down. You are so OVER!! The lights were ON at the mansion though..we could even see a picture in the back! I guess Luke is in the tunnels being dragged along by Hells. That's the OLD GH talking. I'm expecting Luke to turn up in a Muldavian prison, writing on the walls.
|Franco Baby Mystery!|
The Jason-baby mystery is so intriguing because of the implication on history! Heather coming back-- and the past being used. IF ONLY Alan was alive!! Next daddy mystery to be solved? Please make it Sam's!! (and if he turns out to be David Hayward? Swoooon!!)
My only complaint is that they could have had Anna go Sonny's Gala-- I know Robin was working in the lab but they could have moved it a bit and had her there as well. Anna could hug everyone she knows at the gala. Oh, wait..yeah-- Guza messed most of that up too!! We'll just have to wait and see if things pick up when Robin dies. Since the cast was gutted there may be not a lot of history repeating. (Insert Propeller Head's song here)
IF Shawn starts serving Ruby's Chili I'll know my old GH has arrived!!
And look, I'm no Pollyanna on this. I know GH is doomed--I'm happy it's not doomed to go out with me hating it. I'm glad that maybe JUST MAYBE it will start to pick up the ratings and at the very least make ABC look like the idiots they are. They already do with the Revo**Tions shitteous ratings compared to OLTL. At least we have a sliver of something going. A platform to stand on and not one that's defending a terrible show. Am I expecting Carlitini miracles? Yep. I am. Sue me.
