SO, another Tumor Grows in Port Charles. Must be something in the air. Is it pressing on his frontal lobe? You know it is! Patrick has to operate. Well, first he has to show CARLY the tumor because, well she IS a doctor.
Anyhoo, the hell with HIPAA !! Get your scrubs on and lets wash up for a giant soapy surgery.
Let's get to the FRONKEY in the room. Or in the brain. There's Todd...who became Franco, having a seizure and thinking he's Jason.
Follow that? Good, because now the Tumor comes in. See, it's all due to this pesky mass pressing on his frontal lobe. Awww. Why did Franco go mad and spray paint Port Charles? Tumor. Pretend-rape Sam? Tumor. Put Lulu on a bomb-chair? Terrorize Jason? Tumor, Tumor, Tumor.
So, time to get that pesky thing eradicated and I guess we'll find out just who TODD, FRANCO, JASON will become.
I could bitch all week on this, but why bother? If it gets the story moving along, just DO it. Whatever. Now we know Silas is Kiki's dad-- which was one of the reasons why I at first accepted the Franco persona for Todd. That way, he and "Starr" would still be daddy/daughter. But, no, we have to twist it. I guess it's pretty funny if you think about the hate Todd and McBain had for each other on OLTL.
Anyway, this week I started to get a bit of an inkling of how people felt when the OLTL three came on. If I'm tired of it, can't imagine what people who don't deal with them well are thinking NOW. The three are really dominating the show. Everything else seems to be filler. This latest Tumor stuff? I guess more of a showcase for RH. When he came down in Jason's leathers, well, I just laughed. You know Cartini are having their way with Burton. heh. I love Roger but move along. Just move along.
Less Tumor time, more Laura/Scott/Lucy/Tracy Leslie Monica time. And, oh yeah, FELICIA is supposed to be planning a wedding. Um, MORE PLEASE!!
Spinelli going to the gallery was a bit weird, wasn't it? I guess it was to push the Silas story forward but it was like...huh? He never really got any info, just goofed around in a suit trying to make up a story.
Lamaze Classes were pretty fun. And come on, that outfit of Brits? Worth the price of admission. I am really liking the possibility of Nik and Britt because I think she'll make a FINE Cassadine!
LET DOWN OF THE WEEK: Wah..wah. Now, the acting was awesome. We got that. But the build up? Mag covers? Tweets from the GH gang? It was all bullshit. Yeah, we found out he had dreamy hair, rode a motorcycle and they met at a bar but it still leaves us with ziltch. I get that we want this story that's lagged on FOREVER to give us some more drama time but bait and switch? Crappy thing to do, imo. It was like "ha ha... you STILL don't know who Sam's daddy is"!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Oh, MONICA and LESLEY !! Squee!! They were so good and the dialog was heaven. References to AJ's birth and Monica's million affairs.. Lesley's age. Monica calling Lesley "Lester' which is her nickname in real life.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Ouija board. It actually spoke to us and gave us some information! Every J is a suspect of being Sam's daddy now.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Not so much LULU's but dang, LOOK AT MAXIE'S face! She's totally Nellie OLSEN in there!!
So, what do you think of this summer's GH so far? I am liking the baby shuffle stuff. The Lamaze class was good--Brad's blackmailing is scheming and soapy. Michael and Kiki would be more interesting but to me, it's not paced right. I do feel like stories are being woven, I just feel like they are uneven and choppy as well. This Janco Franco Tranco stuff needs to go-too much. And NONE of the fun wacky Franco stuff we are used to.
More Michael AJ
More Monica ..and now Leslie
More Wedding Planning
More Real Creepy Baby Clues (about Britt and Dr. O) this could be a goth mystery but it's getting lost in the shuffle.
Shut Carly up for 2 minutes
Give Tranco a vacation
Give Silas some sort of personality
Give Laura somewhere to land besides Kelly's
Make Connie go nuts
Um, Duke and Anna...'member them?
