|This is what happens when you Google: Super Bowl Soap!|
I personally think the show is a bit of a mess right now--and yes, I'm enjoying it. However, when I think about the actual "direction and story" I want to throw my hands up. No rhyme, reason or synergy lately. With the looming actor and or cast changes coming because of the legal Prospect Park shenigans, we can only expect more jumbles.
I was also very sick the beginning of the week so perhaps some of my confusion is flu-induced. Who knows.
I need a Bloody Mary... extra on the Mary. Get on your SCRUBBIES!! It's SUPER SURGERY SUNDAY!! OH BOY!
I'm going to start off with the BLOATING of the PC jail/Ferncliff. Everyone in town have or will have pending charges. Johnny...Xtina...Todd, Lucy and Heather. Connie... Tracy's going to get hooked by the feds. Then McBain winds up in the pokey.
WTF. Come on!! Too much. Way too much. One or maybe two "court related" things is my max. Diane and Alexis are going to be busy!
ELQ: I like it..I liked the AJ Anxiety attack--and it was very believable. Especially after his fight with Sonny. Speaking of -- loved Connie sticking to him. I'm sorry but Sonny's "trying to seduce to get daughter's charges dropped" act was gross. Inappropriate. This ConSon dance has gone on far too long. It's just getting tiresome. I'm liking the "crazy Cawnie" stuff in the news room and having her print The Sun is ok...but the Sonny crud? STOP IT.
Brit got her just desserts..and yet, I felt mildly giddy when she bumped hard into Nurse Betty and threw her papers all over the floor. I still can't get into Paddy/Betty. Now we have a Dr.Niles in the making. Whatever, Whatever..Whatever.
Should I even start?
Well...I'm going to start with Kevin because that at LEAST is the good part of this whole story. I am SO GLAD Kevin's in town. I love he and Lucy. They have magic. What has it been 10 years? They are still so "there". Alison coming back-- was a nice touch (if they are going anywhere with "Rafe") but she DIED ON THE 2nd day she was in town!! Or First..or whatever. Thing is... if you didn't watch PC, you had to try to figure out the entire story based on John and Livvy's...er.. I mean SAM's Wiki of the story. Lucy tried to explain it but that was painful even for me, someone that knew Port Charles. I can't imagine if you are watching GH now..getting used to McBain from OLTL only to find out he's a ringer for some OTHER guy on ANOTHER soap. Oh, and he was a vampire.
That aside, the kid Rafe was pretty good, which given the latest casting choices, made me happy. Just get different hair cuts on people, would ya? Michael, AJ--this kid all have that same SBurton Rooster-do.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Oh be still my heart. What a beautifully written scene. I was a little choked up. Ok, a LOT of choked up. This is couple is greatness. They stepped right back into "Doc" and Lucy in a heartbeat.
RUNNER UP: Brit turns around and sees Patrick Right. Be--hind. HER!!! WHOOPS.
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: I just found Sonny taking advantage of Connie (a woman he's confessed to not even liking) by trying to turn her ON enough to drop the charges against Xtina stupid. Way to use a mentally unstable woman, dimples boy.
PROP OF THE WEEK: No, it's not going to that hokey silver arrow thing-- it's going to the Chutes and Ladders game at Ferncliff!!
UNLIKELY DUO: Call me crazy but I kinda liked this scheme. The "Scully" connection between the two was well used and brought a bit of emotion out in Tracy. I liked Tracy's plan--just throw the company to the wolves. Connie even tried to talk her out of it. I found myself enjoying their time together. Huh. Go figure.
This week we learned:
1. A silver arrow should save Rafe/Alison from the "guy who's going to kill them" unless..er, they get killed with it themselves.
2. Caleb loves to eat.
3. Monica visits ELQ...but not the hospital
4. The Orbs of Doom survived Xtina's bat
5. AJ has panic attacks that make his hair stick up on end
6. Ellie is still boring
7. Tracy hangs out in Kelly's
8. Ned can't write a text or an email
9. Duke wants to crunch numbers for AJ based on his years owning a club, laundering money and being a prisoner
10. Even WITH a job, Michael still manages to do nothing.
11. Ferncliff and the jail is pretty dang full.
12. The ducks are mighty hungry in the cold frozen recesses of winter in PC
REMINDER: even though ABC didn't promo it too much FRISCO is back Monday!!
