OR The person who DOESN'T WANT TO remember!!! Ergo, sit right back and you'll get a treat this week. I'm breaking the rules. Got your scrubbies?
BTW: The ONLY day I'm taking about this week is the day that is the one day I remember...and that is TUESDAY. The heck with the rest of the week.
Tuesday is one of the reasons I still watch GH. Just great writing. Tuesday is also a "Stand Alone" show. If you watch Wed, Thurs and Friday, not much that happened on Tuesday even appears the rest of the week.
It was detached.
Hung out by itself.
Which, btw, GH is doing more and more, but hell...I'm not here to complain, I'm here to gush about that one perfect day!!
Long Lost Loves: Ah, they returned in abundance on Tuesday. We FINALLY got our Felicia/Frisco talk. (yes, a week late but hey..._) How hard was this to do for Kristina and Jack? Geesh... with their history? I would have been dying. Anyway, great dialog and acting. Wagner tweeted those scenes were difficult.
Do you play it safe? Stay with the good guy, the guy that's been there, that loves you and you know won't jerk you around? Or...do you turn around and face that passionate past that made your toes curl?
Then you have to know this: because time moved on would it even be the same?
SCENE OF THE WEEK. Two middle-agers, trying to sort out the past from their reality. Can you go back? Can you ever feel the same way? Probably only on soaps. Anna's anguish was so real. Kudos again to FH for just bringing it.
I also really enjoyed Mac and Lulu. Like I said in blog already, nice mix up of characters. I like it when residents actually just talk about stuff. Lulu's a good one to talk to Mac about the absent father/mother thing. She should know! Plus, I'm more and more impressed with JMB as time goes by. She really does great work on a daily basis no matter what she's given to do.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Did you catch it? Perhaps I'm reading more into this than I should but the use of "AStreetcar Named Desire" was brilliant. Love, Lust... longings..illusions, the faded past. Boom there it is--This episode in a nutshell.
Which also brings us to the "new love" part of the show. Stable, Molly, usually the good girl. Do you hide the dangerous prison escapee under your bed? Go fix a sandwich for him and grab some orange soda? Sure you do-- this is a soap and danger-boys rule. And let's face it, at that age they do in real life too.
We finally found out who Lucky saw in the graveyard in Ireland..although why he didn't tell his sister in all this time is beyond me! LOL.. who cares! Lucky and Laura had a mini-reunion at some PUB in Ireland. Has a nice ring to it!
FAN-GIRL NOD TO THE PAST: ah, Starr gushing over Laura!! "I knew the whole story, Luke and Laura"!! Great scene.
PS. I also thought Johnny giving Starr his 1/2 of the biz was a great idea. Who better to run a bar than a 21 year old that hasn't had a real job a day in her life and LULU...who..well, I guess could have learned from Osmosis!
Yes, Tuesday was a grand show. If I had my way, it would have been followed up by an Anna/Duke convo...the MAXIE Frisco stuff they've shoved under the table and a Luke and Laura run in. Three days after this and: nothing. Sort of chops up the momentum. At least we see some of this again next week. Laura goes to Liz'... Scotty shows up-- Frisco talks to Maxie. Yes, GH is like watching 2 or 3 different shows. At least there's greatness in the barrel.
