|Alberta Wub with THE Magic Milo!!!|
Oh settle in. Today's Surgery is a long one...think brain operation with some organ transplant thrown in. I just have to bitch a bit. And I'm WAY interested in what you're thinking about all this as well. Let's scoop that toomah out!!
And PS..all of you at the Fan Club Weekend in LA.. I hate you just a 'lil bit!! LMAO
The bridge. How can I do Sunday Surgery this week without mentioning THE BRIDGE. I'm sorry, but it was a giant flop. Everyone knows I'm a huge Cartini fan and loved Ron's writing on OLTL. This summer on GH however, has just been off in so many ways. This last stunt took the cake.
First of all, casting RH as "Franco" to then "reset Jason" is just too convoluted and in your face EVERY DAMN DAY that I just got sick of it. RH seemed to be having fun playing Franco at first--then it just got sloppy. The whole "Jason/Franco Yin-Yang crap talk" was almost exactly what they said in the stairwell of the MOCA. But hey, it had some legit to it because Jason was really JASON. He wasn't "Jason" being played by "Franco" being played by "TODD" (and let's face it, there was a whole lotta Todd in that Franco). So, having the "Twins" come together was just basically weird in my world.
|What the HELL just happened?|
I understand they are breaking apart Jason and Franco by using a medical tumor and some trauma. I get it. This is so that "Franco" can emerge a fresh new butterfly and spread his wings over Port Charles.
My next point is why did Starr and Todd come back as they did? Lauren is NOT really a Quartermaine--and they are NOT father and daughter, which is the whole point I thought. So, that whole thing goes out the window. They certainly didn't give Kiki and Franco any "bonding time" so when she finds out he's NOT her Dad, it can't be that big of a deal. She can go screw Michael and that will be that.
|She's gonna owe the Q's a whole lotta scotch!|
Anna and Duke--I know they'll get more front-burner when the whole Robin story gets going again. I'm sure Luke will be looking for Jerry and it will all come to a head. Why leave them OFF all this time? Having them on once every 2 weeks is driving me nuts. Ditto Flea and Mac---hello PLAN THAT WEDDING. Maxie's PG and fighting with herself over the baby. GET THEM INVOLVED. Good Lord. Just do it. I guess I should say a thank you for having Leslie and Monica on. Yes, that was brilliant. A tiny nugget I can take away and savor. Why do we get 77 hours of AVA drinking scotch when we could have had more Lucy, Monica...Laura, Scotty yada yada?? Maybe have Scotty and Laura look for a house and decide to open a Brownstone type place. Do more with Deception. Did Milo disappear? Milo who was on DAILY with Lulu and is now totally MIA? I still say this show is 10 days on, 10 days off of story rotation.
Well, Michael Got Some. And then, Felix talked him into trying to get BRAD... LOL. I did like Felix --the story is weird but whatever. Penny was a great name, btw. A nod to Big Bang and Penny the Kelly's waitress (she filled in for Liz when Liz never wanted to work)
Good things: Felix getting Brad to almost be human. Michael's 'gay' shirt.... The Q's business and meeting. Tracy finding out Alice was the flipper. Oh ALICEeeee. you got some explainin' to do!!
Moronigan proposing to Kiki was a bit of hilarity. Sam wearing the same outfit all week. (which is basically yoga outfit and black bra!)
|I swear he was here-- a day ago or so...|
and of course....
SCENE OF THE WEEK: No..not Morgon proposing to Kiki. It was Tracy and AJ busting on them. "What, you're like 10"...and "I'll get the juice boxes" ...OHH yes, it was fun and I laughed and laughed.
Suprise SCENE OF THE WEEK Evil Dr. O is back..and gave me the goose bumpins! Wasn't expecting it and I really LOVED it!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: AFRICA BOOK! From Jason himself to little Danny-pie. Those of you that are old enough remember him reading that giant thing to Michael.
RUNNER UP: awesome headline!! And I guess The Sun is out of business?
EPIC FACE: Diane finding out Franco has a brain tumor and being ELATED!!
So, Roger is off doing his Californication stint and Franco is in a COMA--so, there you go. We'll be Franco FREE (except for the mentions) for awhile. Thank you!! How are you liking this summer?? GH has times of greatness and I know it's 100x better than it used to be. I just really need more consistency.
