I didn't think so.
Ok, let's get our gear on and go to work! I'm having a Bloody Mary this morning. I'm going to need it.
GH has been great on one thing--one liners, funny moments, props, wigs and some pop culture mentions. For that, I salute the writers. Bottoms UP!
|Well, at least she found out the story of the BLT|
The "Heahter's BLT Trauma" story was nice, RM did a good job acting it. But again, stuck in the middle of a weird kidnapping story that has no end. I'm still not sure why Heather hasn't killed Carly yet. I mean, she says she plans to..so?? Why wait?
|Spanky and Alfalfa|
The Luke reveal was a goodie. He could have been old Laura in the rocking chair. Remember that!? Nicely written scene-- the girl with the magazine, Kiki getting in and the BLT chomping orderly. Perfection. See, I DO like individual scenes and parts of dialog, it's the "big picture" of production I'm having a prob with.
There was a bizarre insert of the Jr. Mints, which if you blinked you missed it. Even the scenes within shows are chopped up. They were on the first few minutes, then not seen again until almost the end. I forgot they were even on!!
Anna still doesn't know about Sabrina and I really wish she and Robin had been together when Robert left. You could tell they were taped totally separate. Robin and Anna haven't been in the same room since Christmas.
OMG..then there's LUCY! WTF! Her story is absolutely the most boring thing ever. First of all, you have to be a long time fan of GH to understand the dynamics of those 3. They haven't been on long enough this stint to even get into their individual characters. Lucy gets hot for Scotty, sleeps with him, gets all guilty, breaths heavy, goes and hides somewhere when someone shows up. That's it. I guess the spa isn't any kind of a story anymore, why bother, right? Again, it's a little side story that's plugged in here and there. I guess with Maxie gone, I should be happy Felicia is even ON, right? It's very telling though that Flea and Mac have no house and 99% of their scenes are in Floating Jake's. Don't get me wrong, you know I love the vets but when they are used as fluffy inconsistent filler? I get a little angry.
|Well, he did make an "Appearance"!!|
Oh, wait..he wasn't even ON this week (again). When we last saw him he was ..remembering the elevator and...
and.. I suppose we'll find out when it's the next time to insert some of his scenes at random intervals.
Silas is arrested--because some shady pharmacist came in from Syracuse and said Silas filled a prescription? Why didn't Sam and he yell out: OMG the TWIN!!?? and..isn't this a NYC thing? OH whatevvvvver. And the other thing that really bugged me? (I can suspend disbelief on some of the above) SAM totally flipping out over the WILL. Silas was married to the woman. Um, don't you usually leave your stuff to your spouse??? Why is that a shock? That scene was double strange.
Oh, Lante got back together. snooze
Lucas. Glad you're back. You were back 2 seconds, talked to Bobbie for 4 minutes, went to get her a BLT...and had slept with Brad. Talked to his sister, found out about Julian, and yet, why don't I feel he's been on a lot? Because he's RANDOMLY shoved in there. Was he even on this week? I can't remember. Lucas coming to town should have had a nice arc that went over several days. Not choppy little scenes here and there.
Are Helena and Stavvy alive? Hmmmm.
|Pretty yes..but... needs inflection|
but..dare I say?
TOO MANY CHARACTERS in the canvas?? Yep.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Robert saying goodbye to Emma and telling her to take care of her parents!! Awww. Runner up was Robert saying goodbye to Anna. These two have such history and are such great friends, I love their scenes --always.
PROP(s) OF THE WEEK: The Ribs!! Those ribs! Those poor, poor ribs...never eaten. wah..and I see a Rib Bib right there too!
RUNNER UP: Laptops and WikiPedia
FACE OF THE WEEK: Duke, losing it about not being a "man" unless he 'saves' Anna from Julian. By beating him up. Not actually killing him, mind you but..beating him up. But maybe he'll kill him later. Not sure.
SCENE OF ANOTHER NOTE: Tracy goes into the PCPD in her sable coat to ask for help finding Luke..and she brings in the racoon Net!! ahahaa. LOVE. Maybe she thought it was evidence?
I had a friend text me during the show Friday to say: WTF is going on? LOL (this was during the kids in the stables scene). Sometimes I feel the same. GH can be a ton of fun on a moment's basis. Taken as a whole though? They have to stop chopping things up so much and finish/streamline stories to keep my interest. Who cares who killed Connie now or if AJ is going to go to drink? Baby Ben? I don't care if he stays with Britt or not. In fact, Wyndemere is so fun, I kinda think I want him growing up there and not the tiny fan-loft!!
I've said this for years and people don't like it, but I sort of wish soaps were 30 min long again. With that amount of time, they pop and move really quickly. Just an idea. I also wonder what they are going to put in place of Katie. Maybe that GMA show they tried this summer?
Well, have a good Sunday. We are thawing out a bit. My cold is a cough and I'm hoping it's done for good soon. See you Monday!
