Not sure what...but something. I mean, don't get me wrong, the show has vast improvements from what it was. The dialog is witty and actors seem "refreshed" There are maddening moments where I still think the pacing or editing or both are just "off". I need Jamie Lee Curtis to help.
Case in point: Maggie's death. Now, the lead up was terrific soap fodder--Heather mixing leathal tea in front of her face, she drinks it and gets sleepy. Then. She. Falls. OVER. Not "slumps"...doesn't have trouble breathing...just FALLS OVER. BOOM.
And...that was how long ago? I can hear Steven Larzzzz now coming home:
"Geeze Mom what's that smell"??
Heather: (spraying fabreeze) What Smell? Oh, that? I cooked cabbage yesterday!
Steven: And what about this big stain on the couch?
Heather: Couch what Couch??! Well, um... funny story but Olivia and I had a water balloon fight and...
You get the picture. Where IS Maggie? Why leave it that long? Kinda takes the suspense right out of the whole thing.
Speaking of LONG --Lulu was gone forever before we saw her. I actually forgot for a bit she was even gone.
Interesting that Franco took both LULU and Sam...and here they are again, bound and gagged. *sigh* I don't know about you, but I'm sick of the damsel in distress crap. At least she's not sitting on a bomb right now.
Weider than hell: courtroom pleading-- I mean that judge was such a weenie. Who lets all that happen? LOL.. We all watch Law and Order. It's just so off and so outrageous you have to say: come on, that would NEVER happen! Everyone and Spinelli just interrupted whenever they wanted.
Felicia came on..then disappeared again. It would have made sense to have her featured more. Not to mention Mac. I guess they'll have scenes soon, but for the love of everything, speed it up, will ya?
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I'm going with Sam and Carly's "Girlfriend Moment". It was nice and unexpected and well, I liked it.
YOU SPIN ME RIGHT ROUND BABY: Um, did Liz and Olivia run in circles at the hospital for a day and 1/2 trying to figure out the Connie angle? Come on-- it took forever and made them look so stupid. Time Waster. Time Waster. And Ewan was so fun "Connnnnnnnie...Connie"....
NOT THE SCENE OF THE CENTURY: Sam begging Jason to basically love the baby--and stick by her and Jason being a complete selfish IDIOT. I wrote enough about THAT situation this week, I don't think you need me to do it again. HATE the writing for Jason. ugh. Just hate it.
I am hearing more and more McBam are bro/sis and it makes me so sad. Wahhh. Maybe Ron will change his mind when he sees the rave reviews for them. Personally, Jason is done for me when it comes to Sam and the baby. If it IS his baby after all ...and he all of a sudden comes around he can just piss off. You are either IN or you're OUT. They can't seriously think that if Jason is ok with this we are going to be FINE with his compassion. Like I said before, you don't leave your pregnant wife who's found out she was raped by a madman!! Ok, technically Sam walked out --but Jason forced that hand. Poor Jason--needed time to get 'used to the idea"-- cry me a river. I really loathe how this story is being written.
Oh and I haven't even mentioned the big "Matt Bombshell" about Lisa Niles because I STILL DON'T CARE. That's another story that should have just been dropped. Let the dead steward lady take the rap, we wouldn't bat an eyelash.
That's it. GH this week was well. In need of a little Miralax. Or maybe it was just me. Tea's a comin' and she always makes me smile!
Hope you enjoyed the SUPER MOON last night! It was glorious here and I danced --a lot!!
