Sunday Surgery: The Pride and The Promenade




You're no Romeo..

This week's GH was another reminder of just how HUGE this cast is and how the stories are all over. 
BUT! The bizarre Thursday show gave me a ray of light so I won't be all doom-gloom.

It's that time of year when we must have some BBQ!! With corn bread--New England Style. 


Not even sure where to start this week. I guess I'll go for my least fave story first and get it out of the way:




Cassadine Island. Oh, what a great thing this could have been. First of all it should have happened at the reading of THE WILL. Remember what I wanted Helena to say at the end of the tape? I wrote it here in the blog:  "I've left you all something to deal with...and here he is". Valentin walks in looking scary and nasty. She left everything to him. 

But, you know, GH. 



I need to point out the fact that Val separated these two from the group. Derp. Why? I don't get it. Sam is a DAMN CASSADINE! Ergo, you'd think she'd be included in all this? Huh? 



Holy HELL IT'S A FREAKING BORE!!! Valentin is making me snooze! Ava and he just flirting on and on after Nikolas was shot. No one heard that?? I mean, he was shot and fell out of a window. There was nothing urgent, exciting or anything about that aftermath. Nope. In fact, they had him shot and falling out then skipped the story for 2 days. LOL great momentum huh? 



Laura did a good job losing it when she found out about Nikolas. But--wait, did they find the body? Because she thought he was dead after falling from the balcony and didn't cry that much. I don't know, struck me as weird.  Kevin. Shot. I guess Hell's curse is just mowing people down. 



Lulu finds bones in the tunnels. I bet it will have an identifier on it like a necklace or ring. But who's to say if it's really IS that person? Didn't Helena tell Laura she'd find someone she loved and lost? Probs "Lucky" until they decide to have him back. 



Hammy Finn: Now that Sonny's helping, I'm back to I DON'T care! Does Sonny have to be in EVERY-thing? I think about 2 Sundays ago I was happy he wasn't in Ham's story. And now here he is, flying him off to get his meds.  It's like Sonny wanders around town and just pops into everyone's story. It's kind of getting to be funny. Where's Sonny?! Oh! At the cafe! Oh! The hotel! At the hospital! Metro!! Wait--is that him behind the vending machine? Pffffft. 



Oh, by the way, Griffin is all up in Hammy's business isn't he? GEESH-- like have a crush much??!! Griff also says to him that "he's a Priest so you can tell me anything". For not being a Priest anymore, he's sure bringing out the holy water when he wants to! 



Julian gets an ear-full from Lucas. Then Olivia. Yeah, she's still on the show. Who's yelled at him since he's been in the hospital? Anna, Alexis-- Sonny, those two.   Everyone has come in to tell ol' Jules how they can't wait to 'see him in court'. Ergo, will he ever actually GET to court? 



Parker and Krissy: Parker is kind of wishy washy.  She's also a lot older than Kristina, which isn't bad per-se...but I would have liked to have seen a young love story. Why? Not sure. 
OMG Sonny seeing them kiss in the hall was WORTH my Friday watching. LOVED his swaying reaction. Like he was stunned a bit! :giggle: 



Morgan and Kiki: All I know is my eyes were burned out by their soft-porn fest. Gross. (it was the purple panties that did it)  Carly just about told Kiki if she broke up with Morgan it would be her fault if he relapses. Then, Morgan basically freaks out because she didn't want to sleep with him and she did it to please him.  Which was also gross.

Dillon and Darby: DARBYYY. I mean, Darby? Huh? okay. Whatever. Did we even see them hook up? Or did they just wake up in bed? I must have missed something. 



More please. This was good stuff and I wish there was more. NLG was great again this week and served Jules with divorce papers. Julian had some heart "event" and couldn't make it to the courtroom to be arraigned.  We find out later he's doing it to himself.  



Carly and the Kidney: Some girl tried to scam Carly by saying she was Joss' donor. She was a fake out. Carly still gave her some money anyway because she felt sorry for her. That's where that story is for now. Jax will be on soon. I'm hoping it will get better? 



Thursday's Bizarro Show:  It was just a wonderful miss-match of all sorts of crazy things! LOL Franco and Pops--eating! Lucy! Hey! Hayden's Mama gave Heather money! AND..get this! Jeff Webber is Hayden's Daddy! Now, she I thought Ol' Naomi would be Liz' Mama--so I was kind of like...wow. Nice. 





RIC SHOWED UP! Dapper Gray-Silver Fox RIC! Where you been!!? He gave Liz what for regarding Jason and how she treated him after his ruse. Basically said she was a hypocrite. Now, this should have come when the whole story was happening, not months later but at least we got it. I have no clue why RH isn't used more. He's so good. 



Also on Thursday: Joe. Or Jarlos as I call him. Wow, great job by JVP-- he was so convincing as another person! I seriously had to look twice. I mean he LOOKS like Carlos but the mannerisms were so different. Plus his trim :) He's a pediatric doctor. Fancy that! Maybe he'll shake up the Amish a bit. 



SCENE OF THE WEEK: Genie doing her soapie diva best yelling at Valetin. Of course she got Kevin shot but...it looks like a shoulder wound.  I am thankful they used NON-waterproof mascara. Laura, just like the old days with her black-tracks running down her face! 



PROP OF THE WEEK: Best thing?? Alexis is NOT PREGNANT. Thank you.  

RUNNER UP: 'Dem Bones. Too dark to get a photo. But you saw them. Borrowed from Disney's Pirate set. 



FACE OF THE WEEK: You'll shoot your eye out! 



PERSONAL GIGGLE OF THE WEEK: Morgan in his "Cafe" Baseball shirt. LOL  and you know Bryan Craig hates wearing that thing! 



WUBS PICK for the "look" of Valentin Cassadine. THIS right up there. Put the Cassadine crest in the center of his forehead. Now, there's an evil bad lookin' dude!  (yes, I know who that is up there, but you know...for comparison sake...)
So here we are. 45,000 stories going on. Hell, I mean newbie getting up to speed Claudette wasn't even on. Not that I'm complaining but it's just so choppy and crazy.  Like the insert Thursday show. Notice that Hayden's mother is all of a sudden around again? And not for nothing but it might had been fun if Hay and Tray had gone a'mulin' for Hammy. The whole Nikolas "dies" again cracked me up. Off the balcony? What was that all about? I know, stall tactic for TC signing his contract.  Then there's the newbie kid Athena coming--and "Pat" the chick from the Fluke story. 
Good lord, couldn't cram in any more but the do Blanche, they do. 

OH! Wubby Hubby and I binged Stranger Things and LOVED it!! First of all, most all the props are familiar. Winona Ryder is awesome. Very good show and it goes fast.  Still trying to finish Bloodline. Slow-mover that one.

"You're no Romeo.."

That's for sure!!! Dumb and dumber are so NOT!


"It's that time of year when we must have some BBQ!! With corn bread--New England Style."

Oh oh. Is your family still visiting? :) So much foooooood! :)

"Parker is kind of wishy washy."

She sure is! ICK!

"Parker and Darby: DARBYYY. I mean, Darby? Huh? okay. Whatever. Did we even see them hook up? Or did they just wake up in bed? I must have missed something."

You mean Dillon. :) And yeah that was the episode where we missed the last 5 minutes because of, oh shoot I don't remember. A shooting I think.. But I read that after DarDar says she hates the drama, that Dillon kisses her and then they go into her room and have sex.

"RIC SHOWED UP! Dapper Gray-Silver Fox RIC!"

He looks so sexy with the gray!!!!! :)

"Also on Thursday: Joe. Or Jarlos as I call him"

I love the name Jarlos!!!! I will call him that too!!! :)

"Ava and he just flirting on and on after Nikolas was shot."

That scene with them was HOT! :) Especially when she bit his chin!! :) I will call them Valva. :)

"SCENE OF THE WEEK: Genie doing her soapie diva best yelling at Valetin. Of course she got Kevin shot but...it looks like a shoulder wound. I am thankful they used NON-waterproof mascara. Laura, just like the old days with her black-tracks running down her face!"

Perfect scene of the week!!!! Always love old school mascera! :)

"PERSONAL GIGGLE OF THE WEEK: Morgan in his "Cafe" Baseball shirt. LOL and you know Bryan Craig hates wearing that thing!"

How do we know that he hates it? :) I actually like the shirt. :) Who is that a picture of with all the tattoos?

kdmask said...

Ben Kingsley.
Bryan Craig looked MISERABLE in that shirt.
I swear "Dillon" looks like he'd be named "Parker" to me LOL
I do like the smoosh name Valva but hell I hate that story

AntJoan said...

I still am trying to understand how Griff is a priest AND a dr.? Let's see, he left the priesthood after he was shot for having an affair, THEN decided to go to med school, which takes about 10 years, THEN became a successful dr.? So, on his "leave of absence" from being a priest, he became a dr.? THAT IS SOME LEAVE OF ABSENCE! Add up how long all of that would take (including training for priesthood, being a priest, etc.) and he would have to be AT LEAST 40 . . .

I also think that Kevin was shot in the shoulder, so he should survive :)

I thought that Kiwi's matching purple bra and panties would be the prop of the week!! Can we at least give them an honorable mention?

Isn't that coffee place the same set that was used last summer for another cafe?

"kdmask said... Ben Kingsley."

OH! Really?!? WOW! :)

"I swear "Dillon" looks like he'd be named "Parker" to me LOL"

ROFL! Yeah you are right!!!!

"I do like the smoosh name Valva but hell I hate that story"

Yeah the story was boring, but then it got better! VC started using his gun, and Genie Frances had an awesome performance!!!!!

Wonderful SS! Couldn't agree more. These writers aren't capable of sustaining any suspense. We go from Nik falling out the window to the excitement of Kiki and Morgan and the Sonny show.

Valva, hilarious!

Di said...

Thatnks for another great Surgery.

kd said....No one heard that?? I mean, he was shot and fell out of a window.

I know. And it happened right after the people downstairs said they needed a diversion. It would have been perfect. Instead we get them waking up the next morning and saying they had trouble sleeping because they were wondering what that shot was. It was ridiculous.

kd said....Where's Sonny?! Oh! At the cafe! Oh! The hotel! At the hospital! Metro!! Wait--is that him behind the vending machine? Pffffft.

hahaha Does Port Charles have a Sonnyman Go ap? hahahahahaha

I agree about the Morga/Kiki scenes too. She's definitely being coerced into that relationship. And I finally started to like her character when she was with Dillon too. She was young and happy. Now she's just a blowup doll for Morgan.

kd said... Dapper Gray-Silver Fox RIC! Where you been!!?

Definitely sex on a stick. lol I hardly recognized him with the grey hair. It really suits him.

kd said...Wow, great job by JVP-- he was so convincing as another person! I seriously had to look twice. I mean he LOOKS like Carlos but the mannerisms were so different.

That is how you play a new character. He was amazing. And instantly likeable. AND A DOCTOR! Go José!!

PROP OF THE WEEK: Best thing?? Alexis is NOT PREGNANT. Thank you.

I gave a great big THANK YOU for that too.

As for Genie Frances, well she's Genie Frances. 'Nuff said. Use her writers, milk that talent. She's the stuff daytime emmys were created for.

Karen: I agree the lesbian love story is forced and a pale shadow of what AMC did 15 years ago.

FYI: did an interview with Matt Riedy (Dr. Mays). Talks 3-4 x of GH and mentions ageism on women actors.

I continue to not watch GH. I read your blog to stay "in the know". Unfortunately, the show is way too "busy" for me. Too many characters, too many story lines, and too many of those stories related to crime. However, I knew you'd love Stranger Things. Bloodline is not for everyone, but the acting is tremendous, and the slow build up reaches a crescendo. I love the show. I love Rectify too. Again, not for everyone.

"Michelle Latta said...Valva, hilarious!"

ROFL! :)

"Di says hahaha Does Port Charles have a Sonnyman Go ap? hahahahahaha"

It must have!!! Hahahaha!

kdmask said...

Joan, I blocked out that bra/panty set LOL but you're right

nance24 said...

I have to admit I fast forwarded that whole Kiki/Morgan love fest. I'd rather play Where's Waldo than Where's Sonny any day. As long as paint and wall stay out of my sight they can stay locked in that room forever.

Why did I first read "Sonnyman" like the bogeyman who lurks behind every corner...and then I read "Go" and realized nope...
