I'm going with songs lately to describe Sam's falling into the void of the Webber Basement and staying there for days on end (real time, not soap time).
I really liked the Nico scenes this week, they kept me going. If you're not a fan, sorry but at least Roger and Michelle seem to relish and have fun with every scene they are in. They do not PHONE it! We got a hot new doctor and a decent Friday show.
Of course, GH still suffers from heavy heavy cast and drawn out stories but, that's what we signed up for, right!?
I really want some oatmeal today. Not sure why? Maybe the cold is returning to the area!
I have to address something before I get into the week's events. Yes, a new doctor is on. Yes, he's very very good-looking. He may have ties to Stone or someone else on canvas. That doesn't mean I'm off my "TOO DAMN MANY PEOPLE ON GH" tirade though! No sir! We've had 5 new people since November: Dr. Maddox, Curtis, Parker, recast Mayor and now Griffin. The stories are so spread out now it's hard to watch daily. SMDH. I do not understand. I think they may be casting Paul's daughter as well. A casting went out 2 weeks ago for a "well traveled 20 something"... so there's going to be that. :eyeroll:
Ok, on to the show.
Jake laid there all week, bruised up trying to tell everyone about Sam but.. interruptions galore. We didn't see the accident, just him being in the hospital. It's really weird they don't talk about how he got hit or who hit him, isn't it? Did they and I missed it??
Monica was on. For a nano-second. Guess I should be happy.
Day Two of the Sam laying on the floor starts. (remember she was there last Friday).
Cam got out of his box to visit in the hospital! Alas, poor Aiden didn't make the cut.
So, This happened. Nikolas and Hayden got married in Vegas. I do love Becky but I see no point to Hayden. She is a shadow of her spicy self from before the shooting and it's just ..well, dull. Some guy recognized her in the lobby, said "Hi Rachel"...she gave him money. Nikolas called her that after they made love. Yada Yada. Whatever. Usually I'm intrigued about who someone might be. Not this time.
Morgan couldn't perform ...and actually this story made sense. Many people end up not taking their medication because of sexual dysfunction side-effects and it's way more prevalent in the younger set. Who wants to lose the lust-bomb in their 20's?? I liked the way they played on this, and went there with Morgan. He threw his pills in the trash and went to start drinking.
The scrabble game I could have lived without-- and of course Kiki is involved-- so that's 2 strikes but, all in all, glad it was realistic. And although I appreciated this whole idea, Kiki and Morgan were on SO much, weren't they? That Scrabble scene lasted forever. They were at the Metro, Cafe...Kiki's apartment, Sonny's house. Running all over hell all week.
Parker and Kristina. I'm going to like this too--if they show it ON camera. So far, that's been all off camera. The Molly Krissy scene at the Pub was cute where she read the diary out loud. Molly of course thinks 'P' is a guy. Krissy isn't correcting her. Kristina is going to stay in Molly's dorm room for a bit. This could be cool-- IF they show it. You know, this is GH so??
So, Lante decided they were going to divorce and signed the papers. They both mope around..go to the Rib-- Dante sees Val with Curtis. Lulu leaves with Dillon. This story has dragged on so long; with both parties wanting to go back, or not go back-- Now I see Maxie and Nate want to play 'Matchmaker" with them. So-- here we go.
Day Three, we found a hoodie! Crawled all over but didn't try to get up the stairs.
SO, Scotty goes over to see Franco (yeah!!) brings food (double yeah!!) then leaves after 4 minutes because.....Nina wants sex!! Boo. No I love my Nico but couldn't Scotty have stayed around for a bit longer? Nope. He had to go talk to Laura about Helena's reading of the will. This was Wed. by the way. Then, nothin'.
The never ending baby Avery tug of war keeps on giving! Kiki has Avery, decides to leave her with Sonny while she goes on a date with Morgan. Which of course, she doesn't tell Ava about. Ava finds out though and marches over to claim her territory! Sonny makes threats, Carly realizes he knows something and might do something. Guns, Raj..territory... "my child"... Ava's gonna pay!
Laura was used this week to dispense advice to Nikolas and then Tracy. She never got called about Jake that I saw. She had to have been watching Rocco 24-7 because of the Lante stuff. We sure didn't see him anywhere! She hates Hayden. Tracy is happy Hayden has married Nikolas. At least for now.
Day Five!! We see ghost Jason "RUN to me Sam..RUN"
UGH. Curtis...anyone else but her, ok?
Dr. Griffin Monroe is here...Sonny and he bonded in the chapel. He had a medal that AIDS patients sometimes carry and said he lost someone to AIDS. Sonny talks about Stone, leading many people to think he's related to him somehow.
Day Six!! Space Heater Danger!!
NEW SET NOD: "Water Front" ... a little cafe that MoKi went to after ice skating.
SCENE OF THE WEEK and beyond: Oh Roger, you tore my heart out!! He was just brilliant in this scene with Michelle. They were discussing babies and he was like "No way my DNA is going anywhere"...so poignant. So heart-wrenching. Roger sold this. His eyes, his voice. WOW. Like I said, those two are magic and they never phone it in. THIS is why I watch soaps.
PROP OF THE WEEK: that hobby horse. Perfect for Liz' basement.
RUNNER UP: Old school, non-app or Facebook Scrabble.
FACE OF THE WEEK: It changed people, it changed!!
With so many people on the show, Dr. Maddox and the Jordan thing didn't move forward an inch. TJ wasn't on with Curtis. On and On it goes.
I know I sound like the same old crab week after week, but I really did enjoy parts of the show more and did think Friday's show was good. Weird "Cliffhanger" though, no? Jason staring into space 'huh...smoke detector".. derp.
Why do we get 2 fires in 2 months? Another basement explosion? There are things that are exciting and fun without the whole damsel in distress junk.
We also could have seen WAY more Flea, Mac, Robert and Anna. Why didn't Maddox go with Felicia and Mac to see them in Halifax? That's how you integrate people. Plus, they were on like a minute so that whole story isn't moving much either. We know Sabrina's not back until May..so?
I didn't mention Olivia's boob adventure because it moved at a snail's pace. Mayor wasn't on at all, Nina offered Olivia the cover of Crimson but it's not like we saw any Crimson now is it?
Another small item. Scotty moved all over the canvas on his day in PC. Why couldn't Tracy have stayed with Laura a bit longer and the 3 of them chat? Tracy would have been all over the Helena's Will thing!
*sigh* and the spoilers are moving in the mob direction again. Varni said on some interview that Julian "may not be" out of the mob. I can see Ava getting into trouble and him needing to help and.....
Lord Help Us.
To end this, I am leaving you with Sam still on the basement floor, Space Heater torched and smoke filling the room.
Where I left you last Friday, without the smoke.
