RATE GH for the Summer!
So, although we have a bit to go on August, the "summer" Session that soaps know is traditionally over because many are going back to school.
Let's RATE it! Here's the scale:
1- tuned out
2- watched now and again but didn't miss it
3--average; it was ok but didn't rush to watch
4--pretty good most of the time but not as exciting as I'd hoped for
5--Excellent. Couldn't wait to see what happened!!
Feel free to critique the show, tell us what you liked and didn't. I'm giving it a 3; meaning just average. I think the Lila's camp was a cute idea, Alices' heart story could have been a good one if she'd been on more than once a year and Nina entertained me with her psycho nature. I still found the stories very choppy, no real consistency with them and way too many 'vet pop-ups' with no substance. I'm glad Ned is back. Fluke being gone is a real downer because I want that story over. Rafe's involvement in the whole crash came out of left-field and just when Molly was getting a decent drama going, she's no where to be found again. Julexis was hot-hot hot-- as was Shawn and Jordan. Not hot? Levi and Maxie. Oh how I wish this story had never happened! If he never was on the show it wouldn't have been a loss.
I am very surprised there wasn't more of a major story with Kiki, Michael, Morgan. Rosalie should have been more in the picture if they wanted those two together.
Yesterday was the epitome of this summer: Shawn says to Jordan: How long has it been since we were in the gallery? 14 days?
Yep. That's how long.
Frozen Jason story? Eh...poorly executed, imo. Three days of Robin and Paddy stuck in a tiny room going round and round? Victor prancing in like a cartoon? The Egg-Pod? Ok, yeah, no thanks. I like camp as much as the next person but something was just 'off' with this.
Highlights for me included Deliah's stint on the show (way too short though), the inside jokes the writers made, Josslyn and Flea and Mac. Lowlights: CarSon redux and Levi's shennanigans.
I'm sure I haven't included it all--this is off the top of my head. That sometimes indicates what was important and what was not in my mind!!
So, what say you Wubbers? Entertained or Nah?
