|WHO ordered the pizza? You know I hate Anchovies!!|
Any-Hoo, hello there. General Hospital? Yeah, that's why I'm here. Something is up, I swear because this show is just NOT doing it. Is there going to be a regime change soon? Was their budget for editing and level-headedness suddenly slashed in half? There's been some shift--and I can't quite put my finger on when it exactly happened but geesh.
Someone do something. And quick.
What do we have this Sunday? I did buy a giant watermelon from BJ's yesterday. I love watermelon :) It has rained here so hard--I can't even tell you. My Trombone Shorty fun at the Jazz Fest was ruined last night. BOO. Hope you are dry and happy.
|You had ONE Job, Luke...ONE job!|
TG seemed so--so.. underwhelmed. Genie tried. Then it just went to hell. Sorry, but it did. In a pot. She didn't tell us where Lucky is (Gaffaw) ... Luke didn't DO IT because he passed out (oh the hilarity)!! And Friday, LnL are with Guns drawn on Dillon and Lulu. Holly has one when she comes on.
I just can't even.
|MY FIRST FACE..|
|MY SECOND FACE...|
After the Fluke thing, when he's in the hospital, they discover irreversible cancer (Ava's story never happened in my dream so shut it). HE's the one that does the "death with dignity" story. It's all done at the hospital. Would even give dull Silas a part. His past comes to pay some last respects and he fights to die the way he wants. Monica's there...Dr. O is against it. Hell, have a whole debate on it. If you read the NYT piece about self-directed death, there are more 'legal' ways to do it, but it takes ordering drugs across seas and not getting caught. He could have had Robert smuggle some in. Or how about Helena? Coming through for him, helping him die. Sort of an ironic twist. She'd be all "here's your poison but now I suddenly don't want you to truly go".....
Anyway, point IS...the story could have been SO SO much more. Laura could have come back to help, she and Tracy bonding. Lucky and Ethan back to say goodbye (can you imagine how Lucky would have cried??!) It would have been a great last performance for Geary.
But...nope. GH again. With the pseudo-camp or whatever this is supposed to be. Not one person I know likes it or even talks about it much. More people were talking about Donna Mills and Ric kissing than they were Luke.
|Oh .... YOU MAD???|
IT's the Law.
|It's really crazy..it just grows.........IN MY PANTS!!|
|But..But..I can't THINK!! Make me pasta so I can think!!|
Dillon and Lulu.. in one room!!!
Valerie and Dante kiss after beer and commiseration!!!
Audience is like: "saw that coming for weeks on end"...
And, look...I'm all for couples and conflicts but this is just -well... boring. Plus the fact that it's so far far out of everything Dante has ever done it's laughable. A kiss over beers and Rocco's crib.
BTW, that kid sleeps..A LOT.
ELQ. Lucy is voting with Nik. Ok, that did surprise me. So, kudos there.
Sabrina and Michael. I know some of you like them, but I swear they are like Amish to me. Not that there's anything wrong with the Amish...but it's like one of those Amish romance novels you read. (yes, I've read some). I feel like Sabrina is going to sit down soon and make her wedding quilt for the hope chest. BTW, all of a sudden she's all like 'Ok, just give a baby to a mob-man"? Where the hell did that come from? Some people are thinking that Morgan will end up being the "real' Dad in all of this. Rotating ladies, rotating babies.
Donna Mills and Ric. At least she got her almonds from the Mini-Bar. This has taken an interesting turn I suppose, so..I might be into it. The problem is..we know Nina and Ric don't sleep together. The way Nina acts you can't even really tell if she likes him let alone 'loves him'. The story is odd. If Nina would have kinda 'fallen' for him over time, it may have worked.
What else is happening? Erm...oh Denise. Going to bother Silas at the ER because she's all upset about the baby. She can't be happy she's out, and might see her other daughter. Nope. She's just all pissed off. (I think it's that ugly wig she has to wear but..??) Franco and she at the Metro were the bright spot for me! All gum and lipstick. heh..Plus Morgan's pasty face looking at the two of them.
Why Carly didn't spot her as a phony is beyond me. She knew instantly about Hayden but thinks this is Ava? Or, maybe she doesn't care ? Of course she'd care. :handsintheair:
And then there's Sonny. F'kin SONNY. He kills AJ. In front of our faces. We think: finally! FINALLY gonna pay. Oh how stupid we were. Stupid little viewers. Because now? Well, now, Sonny has Carly, he's off the charges, he back as head of his mobular coffee company, Mikey shows up with Avery and..what else? Oh yeah, he gets TJ!!! Got nothin' else to do? Is he still going to PCPU? (get it? PCPU? lol) Will Sonny have a studybuddy lined up for him? You know, he's in Michael's old room. With the Africa books... and a nice sturdy bed to hold the next coma patient that may happen to be living there. Maybe he'll be Avery's manny.
Even though it was a dull, weird and not great week, I DID actually have three (count them THREE) Scenes of the week. Two of which were soapy drama all the way and carried out by someone that has been phoning in a bit lately.
Well, he woke up.
SCENE ONE: Sam and Nikolas talk in the metro about his new found Princely "Charm" and take over of ELQ. I sometimes get a bit sad watching these awesome exchanges and think: WHY has it taken so long for these two to get back together? You totally forget they are family half the time. Anyway, thanks for this. Kelly and Tyler were both on point.
SCENE TWO: Nikolas is LIT UP like a firecracker on Rosie. He was fierce! Loved. And BTW, no one gives a crap what Rosie's secret is. Too long, and she was off the canvas for forever. Like I said, unless she's a mermaid, forget it.
SCENE THREE: Because...I LOVE Maura and Roger. And I loved the gum-switch and the lipstick. Only time I laughed all week.
FACES OF THE WEEK: Paddy and Liz see Sam and Jake just laughin' it up. I mean, REALLY laughin' it up. Then they all go eat dinner together. Awkward.
I Mean, come on---- look a that face. Glowing.
PROP OF THE WEEK: "Power of Attorney"...which led to the Kissing of Donna Mills. (I shall write a book called that someday!)
I also loved the Green Elephant lamp at Sabby's place but couldn't find a photo!
So... end of the blog here. I'll say it again. Something is up. I can feel it. Don't know just what but the 'gel' of the show is way way off. The Luke Finale? Hollow. While I do appreciate some of the show-- and yes, ALL the actors, the rotating nature of the cast is really starting to affect everything. Julian's not even in this Ava junk. Brad and Lucas shelved (which was a great start of a story) until whenever. The Nikolas thing is great and thank you for putting Lucy in it. Still....a bit weird, and frankly a bit dull.
AND FOR THE LOVE OF everything, either tell us that LC is sick and doesn't want to work or something!! Monica's absence is just deafening.
and so is Josslyn's.
Ok, tee hee..not so much but dang I miss her sass every once and awhile. You know me...I needs the SASS!
