WARNING: Do not read the next page if you are going to ask me "why do you bother" or any other foolishness. This is my OPINION of GH. And right now, it's not pretty.
Am I hallucinating...or is that Acid Groove Green?
And Jordan?! WHY WHY WHY---?? Shaun and TJ are hardly EVER on, so why should I care about her?
Glad Maxie is back. Do I have hopes she'll get a decent story? Um, no. Don't get me started Levi. You know he'll be 'shockingly related to people on canvas" and take an age to get that reveal going.
Yes, I still love my show. Hell, I made my schedule this school year so I start early and finish in time to get home to watch live. But I'm just so turned off by this round-round storytelling. I know the "Old Days' are dead and gone but soaps are about core families, stories with beginning/middle and some resolution and not ALL about shock and villains and people with masks or doppelgangers, kidnappings and shootings. Sure, that can be in there but the focus? Hey, when you focus more on the baddies that killed a man point blank and then trashed his memory instead of the killing and implications to say--Monica, well, you lost me. You need BOTH sides. Nothing infuriated me more than to have Tracy having lunch with Luke and not even knowing about AJ's death--2 days after it happened on screen. Block taping does this. It also traps characters within tiny universes of themselves.
Franco and Carly? Who do they ever see but each other? I think Franco talked to Scott one day. Long ago. Morgan is stuck in Ava parking-lot hell and Anna hasn't been out of the PCPD in a month. Why wasn't she part of the raid on Obrect? Since she knows how dangerous she is? Why didn't she get the WSB on the phone when it happened? "Hey, one of your 'people' just went bat-shit again"?
I think Duke is back to counting coffee beans for Sonny. How's Lucas working out? Glad Bobbie made it on one time. Did TJ and Molly have sex? And please, just get rid of Rafe. You're not going to use him so just cut the ties. Scott/Lucy/Kevin/Mac/Felicia--I don't even know what to say about this situation. I got nothin'/
I was so hoping this Nina thing would be over. OOOOOOOO-verrrrrrr. Now we have Donna Mills and Dr. O and Nathan and Britt. Victor left and basically evaporates but!! he's coming back again. Okay. Whatever. Helena will be back as well and a new girlie Cassadine as well. Another newbie!
The most painful scene was watching Nathan and Donna West and her "confession" WOW.. just. WOW. Terrible. I do want to take a moment to say it's really stupid about the whole 20 year in a coma, trying to get Silas for the crime NOW--and the fact that Madeline actually did it to try to induce an abortion. @@ When I look back at how the whole thing unfolded, it makes no sense. at all.
The dialog writing is still pretty brilliant. The moments are wonderful..but in isolation. It's all lost in the revolving on/off of actors and the editing, imo.
Shocking reveal: O and Donna are sisters..and there's supposedly another Lante baby floating around out there. This damn baby saga is NEVER ending. NEVER.
The Nurses Ball is coming ..I'll watch that. I'm sure Sonny's angst or story will be all up in that business too.
Hey, AJ's funeral is the week AFTER Easter. Guess there's no rush on that, huh? He has to haunt Sonny first. @@
Yep, I'm crabby. Yep, the show is still not doing anything for me. It's too disjointed and way too all over the place to give me a 'story' I can sink my time into. I don't have a face or prop or scene because I didn't watch enough to choose.
Not sure what I'm doing next week. I'll probably tune in/out like I did this one. Michael's coming BACK on screen after a week off. Anna's still stuck at the PCPD and Patrick/Sabrina crawl out of storage for some baby-bonding scenes.
And so it goes.
