This week I'm saying almost the entire show was filler--with some lighter notes here and there. Turkish prisons, Swiss clinics-- people on the phone, plugs almost pulled... zexy shower suds.
Anna was back on after 15 days of being MIA.
But real moving forward stuff? Nah...that came from behind the scenes! Genie's coming! Jon Lindstrom!! Prospect Park's really going to move the other soaps online --and soon!! Steve Burton goes to The Young and the Restless!! We found out the Nurses Ball will start to ramp during sweeps and go until April 1st, the date of GH's 50th anniversary. Many others will show up for the celebration! woot! Things are looking up people!!
Hey, today calls for cinnamon donuts and some nice coffee..it's going to be a relaxing surgery, we'll let the other guys take over.
|Yes, gruesome make up but my hair? Fabulous.|
Ellie was told she's not going to walk (probably) -- and then we didn't see her. BUT! We did get to see a lot of Trey. Along with Xtina (bleck). And I'm sorry but the "connection" between he and Connie fell so flat I couldn't stand it. The writing was all over the place for those two. They never interacted enough before the accident to make me care now. And when they DID interact, she was basically telling him she should have aborted him. Ergo, don't really care about her desperate eyebrow acting when it came time to pull the plug. Then there was Xtina. (I refuse to call her Kristina). The WEAK link in this story bar none. Wow. Just really painful.
You could see THIS coming a mile away. Reminds me of a 1000 plots. How long will she be paralyzed for? How long will guilt keep Spin with her? What about the Spixie baby? *sigh*
Given the fact I don't really care about Ellie, it's not high on my importance list at the moment.
Sam and McBam...Kelly did a good crying job. Ironically, the "Jason is really dead" scene came on the same day that Burton announced on the Talk he was joining the Young and the Restless. Nice synergy there. I don't want a recast-- and I hope they let the character go into the Q crypt for good.
Oh, and what else is coming? AJ..making out with Connie and possibly Carly (She must get HAMMERED!!). Interesting. Maybe. Can't tell yet.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Ok, nothing riveting this week, but I did like Lucy's bubble dress and Tracy ordering the rib platter. It was also nice to see Mac and Lucy interacting and talking about old times.
RUNNER UP: Carly and Todd... I really liked their jail house scene. AND LOOK AT LW's hair. wowza
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: ANYTHING with Xtina and Trey-- it was so bad that any scene the was supposed to be angst was just sad.
SOUND EFFECT OF THE WEEK: Cawnie "whistling" in the pokey. Or as she called it, the "hoosegow".
UBER BAD HAIR DAY: Um. what IS THIS?! Even Liz is like "hell, girl..get some static spray"!
Take the time and read Frank's interview about what's coming on GH, he really dishes the goods. Go to TV Guide.
Great tweet from Kirstie Alley on Friday night:
Praise to all the Soap Stars out there who have to memorized 40 pages of dialogue each day!!!! Lawd Lawd Lawd
