The crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought
Yep... that's the definition. Not that anyone in that courtroom seemed to use it correctly! Maxie "Murdered Robin" (uh, no)..she "murdered" Lante's baby by chasing a dog (no). Same with Lulu. She didn't kill Logan on purpose (it was, technically "self-defense") and abortion is not murder under the law since it's legal and protected by the constitution. So-- all that posturing is really null and void.
Made for GREAT TV though, huh??!! WOOT!
Let's get ready to 'murder' this week's show-- get on those scrubs and maybe a mimosa!
Sometimes GH feels like 2-3 different shows. I know that can be the case with all soaps--especially with the rotating stories. GH however is REALLY feeling disjointed lately because of the actor rotation. Scotty and Lucy are on--then they aren't. TJ walks in during a voting scene, talks about mama and who knows when we'll hear it again. There's the entire Robin thing going on which swaps out from time to time with the custody battle and maybe Julian Jerome reveal. Taylor and Rafe evaporate. AJ is off because he 'taped too many scenes for his conract" (who the hell keeps count for that...because you sir, are fired! )
You can REALLY tell there's a hella block taping going on. NLG tweeted that after the scene with shirtless Derek and one other, she was off for 3 weeks. That's how they rotate.
Let's dish first a bit about the behind the scenes goings on. Twitter is such a good source of gossip! First John Stamos gets into the fray with headwriter Ron saying all they wanted him for was to "play drums" during the anniversary special. Ron fired back.. John fired back. :giggle: Goodness! Then Ron tweeted he had no clue Tristan was going back to Y&R and had one day to rewrite "February Sweeps". Um..okay. Didn't know you taped that far ahead but oh well. While the Tristan thing is interesting, it's double interesting Ron called him out on twitter. I'm really wondering if Robert will now die a slow and painful death--or maybe quick and easy. Juicy, ain't it?
The show this week was ok-- the custody battle was of course, the major focus along with Sonny's rant-o-rama at the Gallery. Derek is Julian! Gasps all around, especially from Sam and Alexis. He's going to hold his own bone marrow hostage so Sonny doesn't kill him. Hey, whatever works. If Sonny was REALLY ruthless, he'd give him propofol (drug of GH choice)...make him paralyzed, have his marrow harvested, then kill him. But, I think like an evil person that way.
Poor Alexis, drawn to her baby daddy that she had good drunken sex with in the back of the car. *sigh* Who can't relate to that!? She slaps him--and you know darn well what's probably coming in that area. Sam of course, is reeling to find out she's 1/2 Jerome and 1/4 Cassadine. Whoops. Bad combo there. With Jason's genes, you're going to have to watch baby Danny mighty closely!
The Brothers Corinthos. The Brothers Quartermaine redux. Michael the golden-boy. Morgan walks away when he's drowning. Kiki does that wicked funny jump to save him. Franco comes along at the right time--and Carly rewards him with sex. That certainly started an online firestorm. (Which Carly even acknowledged--lol) I love RH and LW together-- but her sleeping with psycho Franco? Even without his tumor? That's a stretch. I still think making Roger Franco was the wrong call...but hey, that's me.
Luke and Tracy were cooing over the baby--- which was sort of weird to see. The whole lab thing was also strange-- you'd think with all the money they have, they'd just get lab stuff to put into Wyndemere instead of taking the chance of having Robin parade around GH. By the way, they have a tiny lab staff, don't they? LOL. Brad leaves, and it's a free for all in there. I did hate the "Sabrina and Paddy wedding talk' while Robin was under the table. Yes, it's soapy--but it's also really REALLY stupid to think Robin couldn't tell Patrick (or Nik could tell him) and he'd keep it secret! Whatever. At least it's not as bad as Brenda's six month re-into while she was in Paris!!
Dr. Obrect is looking more and more like Anna ..lol. Why doesn't Faison just kill her? He doesn't love her, she's a pain in his ass--so? Why not?
This Happened. I like SoLivia but let's be honest, it's happening because Sonny's gone thru every lady in town--and the rest are dead.
On to the trial. First of all, I always enjoy Carolyn and Nancy together. That said, the 'content' of the trial was just ... more than weird. I and so wondering why Diane didn't bring in the social worker that denied Lulu and Dante adoption! Wouldn't that be telling? To scream murder at both of them for stuff that isn't murder?? Entertaining but--strange. Will Dante tell the truth? BTW, I'm saying it (because you know I'm honest)-- Dom just doesn't seem into things lately. Dante IS the most sane right now, along with Spinelli. They should get married and rasie ConGeorge.
Sabrina and the dresses? Um..NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Michael "drowns" LOL.. sorry but it was so funny. We all know Kiki did the frog jump to "save" him. And, of course, this led to CoDD sex.
FACE OF THE WEEK: I loved Dante's look when Lulu said she didn't tell him she wanted to fell the country. Ut. Oh.
PROP OF THE WEEK: You can barely see it, but the Salt Shaker takes it! I'd go with the gum, but without that salt shaker, we wouldn't have had the fingerprint impression!!
QUIP OF THE WEEK: Cesar
Faison: "If we hadn't had a daughter, we wouldn't have a problem." —
Dr. Obrecht: "I'll forward your complaint to your sperm."
HOW are you liking the show? It is better than it has been in years... but still uneven. And people seem REALLY mad about Todd and Carly. Errr. Franco I mean, ya...Franco. Anyway, have a good one! I have a birthday party today and tons of work to do for tomorrow. I have a new client that STARTS at 1pm now, so blogs may be running a bit late-meaning not posted right at 3.
