|I can't go back to coach, Jerry!|
Yep..I feel like Elaine. Sitting in coach...hot, confused, surrounded by a ton of characters/stories I don't care about. I just want to get in to Production and eat what they are and maybe I'll "get it". Understand why it's always MORE of everything instead of finishing what we've got.
PS. The writers are the poor stewards trying to serve the food to the crabby passengers in coach, all the while being yelled at by the pilots of the plane.
Get out your Alka-Seltzer. I have a hangover.
My Brain. She needs a break.
Yes, I like a variety in my stories. Yes, a round-robin approach can be effective but I am finding I am losing interest in so much. Sabrina's baby? Don't care. Nina...certainly don't care. Donna Mills was on for a hot damn minute. Can't we get momentum going? Then, watch, she'll be on for 2months straight. Why did TJ's mother come back now? With all the other shit going on...you think we have time for this? Look at Lucy, Kevin and Scotty. I mean, please. By the time Kevin gets a clue..we'll be asleep. How about the Franco disappearance after MONTHS of on-air hogging and you've got the recipe for "I don't really give a F". Rafe is on..then he's off. Molly and TJ's on going "sex or naw" story--here and there, thrown in whenever. I also feel like Duke is a backyard character and Anna's just hanging around.
I missed 2 days this week and had to go back and watch on the DVR. No remorse not getting home in time to watch live, that's for sure.
MOM? Well, I'm betting Nina had this kid when she was a teen and Gram raised him as her own. Ala Jack Nickolson. Maxie's back soon. So Nathan will be at the Metro with her and everyone else that don't have a house on GH.
Then, of course, the party happened and the ramp-up to this story fizzled out for me. I'll have to get invested again when they decide to put it on.
Anyway, KUDOS to Chad Duell for his scenes. He done good.
Britt writes "The Letter"...soon to be Cam's artwork for Emma. Not sure how I wanted this all to play out, but--it lost it's sizzle for me. Just hurry it up already. I want Ben back with Lante and Nikolas to still love Britt--and marry her. Because that's how I roll--giant Cassa-wedding and the bride to be a bit damaged and have a seed of evil in her. Plus, Dr O running Wyndemere is delicious.
I still say Patrick should have brought Emma to the party. Liz and he would read the letter. He was in the Britt's baby mess from day one. It would have made so much sense. Ric? Not so much.
The party: Those fake candles still bug me. LOL. They are the flameless kind that aren't real. Ugh. NOT in my Wyndemere!! Glad they had extras and food around. It was pretty bright in there and the faux piano playing was kinda funny. Everyone looked Fabulous. I do wish Cassadines had some fun kooky help hanging around. I miss Alfred.
Lulu mooning over Ben? Ok..now he will be her's-- and? What? It's too bad Olivia didn't see Ben ice-fishing. LOL that would have been fun. Tracy and Lulu's talk was awesome. Emme and Jane were brilliant. Ben himself is adorable too--such a fun kid. Did you think it was weird no nanny was watching him? Especially with the history of baby-snatching that's gone on?
Sonny and Spencer were adorable. That kid is so New Jersey accented!..heh. Anyway, I liked it. Spencer is going to turn out to be just a rotten Cassadine thru and thru..you wait.
I wish Bobbie had been invited. She and Nikolas have a great history. Wyndemere seemed empty with no other Cassadines around. I guess Sam and Alexis represented a bit! Speaking of Alexis, she and Sonny were good with the 'spy on Julian/Ric' stuff. She adjusted her boobs and got right in there!!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I liked Lulu and Tracy's talk about Lulu's abortion. Tracy was so calming and just plain great. Lulu's guilt felt real. It's strange not to have Laura around yes, but these characters can still pull off a great Girl "Step Mama" scene.
PROP OF THE WEEK: That Origami trouble-maker.
RUNNER UP: Sonny letting us know he thinks Alexis was on the right track. You know, in case we missed that fact! LOL
GRANDEST SET RETURN!! The Parapet!! WOO HOO!!! I've been dying to see that set. Was it in cold storage? Did they recreate it? I think it's a bit different than I remember. It's also being used for it's original purpose: To threaten minions who do not keep their mouths shut!
So, there you have it. Last week, I was in First Class--this week coach. With the newbies that are coming on, it's just going to be even more crowded. Hope you are hangin' in there!! I also hope Luke turns out to be his "twin' Bill Eckert and not some mask. Please. PLEASE. NO MO' masks or plastic surgery!!
