|PUFFS Plus, Extra Large Box, Please!|
This blog shall be dedicated mostly to the SCRUBS goodbye this week. Why? It was in my opinion, the perfect synchronicity of these 7 things:
Long time viewing
Few Recasts of Principal Characters
Soapy Goodness with all the FEELS.
I'm having a big old donut fest to celebrate all that is Scrubs. It's sweet ooey goodness will match my happiness.
*Note: I did NOT win the Powerball. In fact, I got ZERO numbers correct. Ergo, I'm not on a drinking spree and can publish this blog.
You are Welcome.
Rarely if ever do you see someone grow up on soaps, especially from 5 years on. On the ABC soaps I've watched I can think of only two that I saw grow from that age on--Kirsten Alderson and Kim McCullough. They are both gone now and dang, it's sad. Getting to know someone and watch them mold a character is amazing. I really wish Brooklyn could have stayed right on GH for years and years but I suspect even if JP and KM stayed, she'd be ready to move on sometime soon as well.
I'll say no more now but just show photos. Note: I thought Robin's dress was perfect!
AND If that wasn't enough..
We got the flashback goin! Full on! And because it was Kim and Jason since day one of Scrubs, we could see them in all their glory.
One Elephant in the room was Carly and Robin's 'talk'. I know she's leaving but this was so over the top it was just ridiculous. Carly telling Robin thank you for Jason and the fact that when Robin was at GH she told her 'one day you'll realize how important this is" was cool. The not so cool part? Robin telling Carly how great she's been for Jason and Sonny. Huh? GOOD FOR? Um...up for a giant debate (and there was one on Twitter! lol). Carly was one of the 2 recasts at that wedding (I am not counting Maxie so don't @ me on that) and I so wish Sarah Brown was still there just for this scene. I've accepted Laura's Carly but Sarah and Kim had the best enemy vibe going back in the day. Missed it.
So, all in all I loved the send off. Let's be honest; they could have just had Patrick and Emma leave town. Thank you for not doing that!
Who gets Scrubs house??! I'd say Lante if they weren't imploded all over the map.
By the way, in other news:
Dante thinks it was Dillon who slept with Lulu. She actually didn't sleep with Johnny either...
Laura gave out more advice to Tracy, Liz and Nikolas.
Nina and Franco made awesome love...
Jordan is dating Dr. Maddox
Crimson went "Green"...
Valerie may flunk out of the Police Academy
Robo-Jake may have saw the Travelocity Gnome on the front lawn and Liz called the cops.
These guys were on. (A Scott Sickles Day is always a good day, btw)
Sabrina had cramps but not the baby...
Jake drew Franco an Amityville Horror House portfolio
Tracy told Hayden she knows "who she really is"...and made it sound like she'd been to PC before, that she made the 'papers' and had ties to Nikolas. All I can think of is Rebecca --Emily's naughty twin that was on in 2009. However, you know we will not know for awhile (Feb sweeps??) because, well...GH.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Grandma gives little Emma a plane ticket. Hopefully ensuring us that she'll visit for Easter break.
RUNNER UP: When Franco told Nina how much he wanted her when she was all shy and didn't want to have sex. It was so well written and RoHo's face said it all. Awwww.
PROP OF THE WEEK: That glorious family bad sweater portrait. I personally love how clueless Julian is. And look at Olivia's Face!! LiLo and Nancy seem to love this stuff. Maybe they'll be Lucy and Ethel.
FACE OF THE WEEK: This was Sam listening to Spinelli. Cracked me up.
Bittersweet week. 2016 on GH starts with a goodbye of epic character proportions. It almost felt like the show was ending! I have to admit there's not a lot for me at the moment since I don't care about any of the stories much. Hayden's real identity may be good but I don't want the frustration of waiting for it. Ha. Right.
Thanks for indulging my look back at the send off and wedding. It meant a lot!
We'll see how many times I make it to do a live post this coming week. Sometimes, I surprise myself!
Have a good one. I see a Polar VORTEX is coming. (Love that Vortex word!)
