TO Hell and Back

Well, it's 9/11 and every year I'm reminded that GH was off the air for weeks due to all the coverage-- rightly so, of course. At the time, I didn't think I'd ever watch "normal tv" again. The story of the hour when everything changed was "The End Game"--Cassadine-Spencer feud. The ending was changed because of the climate of the times and it felt for awhile anyway, that the anchor of GH was just blowing in the wind. It was also when I was first on the net, in the AOL folders and no one could believe what was happening. There wasn't any Twitter-- or Facebook, we only had these boards to talk on. Soap Zone was up so there was a lot of discussion there. Big Brother 2 was going, and a few places were chat rooms for that show. Just scary times. 

Heroes All....

TODAY'S SHOW:  

Rocco's birthday. He and Charlotte are on. Olivia comes over with Italian food.  Dante is worried that Valentin will take her away.

Lulu sees Ava sign Val's paper..wants to know what it is.  UGH we are going to do this Charlotte crap even MORE?? Lulu lays into Ava. Ava lies about what they were talking about. She says a tapestry is being sold to him for Wyndemere. 

Carson is at GH-- Sonny says the 5 Families are so happy he's still in the mob! It's a good "Balance of Power"!   They are talking about moving in together but Sonny's worried about security. 




Sam WON'T MOVE FROM JASON'S BEDSID
E damn it!! Jason--of whom we don't see his face. I think Miller was doing his contract at this point.  She finally goes when Grffin says he needs to be alone with him to do an eval.  Sam gets all pissy with Carly about Jason's condition. She seems to think Carly knows more than she does? HUH?
Griffin comes out and says the longer Jason is unresponsive, the more likely he wont' recover. He suggests long term facility. Sam freaks out. She's mad at everyone. She lashes out at Carly and Liz.


Sonny takes Griffin to the Metro to ask him "spiritual questions"..."Why was Jason punished and not me"? 

Kiki brings over the poster for Franco's art show. (Title: TO Hell and Back)  He's going to go see Heather though. He is all upset that Jason isn't waking up. "We are connected" he says. 
When Franco goes to see Heather, she won't see him.  He gives the guard the photo to show her an the BLT he brought. She still refuses to see him. 

Ava tells Kiki she's going to a spa. 


OMG. this is just like PULLING TEETH today..wow. zzzzzzzzzzzz

I worked morning shift that day and so was driving and was oblivious to what had happened. We had a small tv in the pharmacy for a wk. Just so sad. Dang I forgot about Soapzone, but do remember how they scrapped the storyline. Tv was so different. Laughing felt so bad....

WTH? Why is Sam lashing out at Liz and Carly. Jason chose this life.
On another note, I've been watching DAYS and have to say I'm getting into it. Glad Nicole got her baby back and that the Hattie storyline is over. Now if only that other woman gets caught.

Billy Miller is going to be on 3 episodes of Ray Donovan on showtime. I think this is when he was filming them.

Hate Sam,she needs to shut her piehole. Sure Liz knows how she feels, like when Lucky died. Just want to slap her.

screamingeagle said...

Michelle if Liz would stand up for herself and remind Sam that she isn't the only one in the world who has gone through this( Lucky's death),maybe Sam would shut up and stop feeling sorry for herself. This could be part of Helena's curse.

I just started watching, but it is really annoying me that Ava cannot find a plastic surgeon without Valentin. She has tons of money and connections, you can go online and find a good plastic surgeon. Even if they supposedly couldn't do as good a job as Valentin's, I'm sure they could make her a lot better than she is. Of course this is GH, this is fantasy, and on the show Ava already said she looked for drs. "and no one could do anything for me." This is so ridiculous . . .

I hope helena's curse kills off sam. a character I would not miss. always woe is me.

david said...

Wasnt Grant Putnum a plastic surgeon? Or was he just good at detecting fake scars on people's faces?

Michelle Latta said...

Thank you, I totally feel the same.

Why in the world would Sam think Sonny and Carly knew more about Jason's condition than she does? They aren't even family members. Why does Franco always talk to himself? Charlotte and Rocco are so cute.

AMC GH said...

Oh I so agree! I've been sick of her for years. No offense to Kelly Monaco but they have just written the character off the charts

AMC GH said...

Does the fact that Charlotte says papa at least 30 times every time she's on drive anybody else crazy or is it just me? I would ship it to pay money to change his name to daddy! Papa Papa Papa! oh UGG

This was supposed to get posted last night on the SS page, but apparently it timed out on me, and never got posted. (my internet connection was VERY screwy last night, all around. And didn't even think to wait and make sure it went through after hitting "publish") And since it probably wouldn't even be read now, if I just put it there again, so I moved it to here.

Anyways - Great SS this week Karen. I LOVE your picture captions, they remind me of what SiD does in both versions of the magazine, each week!

Below here is what I meant to post yesterday, when I was explaining my take on the return of Burton, and why, when OldSchoolGHFan asked

OldSchoolGHFan said...

Re: Burton...Anyone that's had a long time association with GH, I have a degree of likeability for because I have followed it for almost 4 decades now and to some degree the cast is like family to me. My problem is the writing for the character of Jason and how lame and predictable he became after his career as a lame ass hitman began. Now, this dual Jason crap looks like more stupidity. It's a shame because Miller and Burton (both Daytime Emmy winners) can act their asses off when they are given interesting stuff...To bad I don't think we're going to see any of that anytime soon.

** Having watched GH since the late 70s, I liked him quite a bit when he was still Jason Q, and still for a bit after the accident. (When Nik was shot at Luke's club, and watching Jason still reacting as if she was still working to become a doctor, for intance) Though, the longer SB was playing Jason M, to me, it felt more and more as if his acting range/abilities just lessened, to me. His stint on Y&R recently, really brought that to the light for me. (I've been watching Y&R since the very early 80s, BTW) Even though the character he was playing was completely the opposite of Jason, SB was still so "stiff" and didn't show much emotion at all, except for a bit on anger and the like every so often. I was quite happy when he left, so I'm definitely not looking forward to him back on GH.

** That's usually what I want to do with her, everytime Sam opens her mouth. But, even taking that into consideration, she was really bad today. Yeah we know she's freaking out over Jason being shot. But when Carly becomes the voice of reason, it proves even moreso that Sam is WAY out of line.

** Yeah, this is my biggest issue with the whole storyline. Especially when GH is supposed to be regarded as one of the best hospitals around. It's totally absurd. And the longer it goes on, it just becomes more and more so.

** She's been this way since she first showed up on PC. I've never liked the character at all. Though she's definitely gotten even worse over time. I'm at the point now, where she really no longer has any redeeming qualities whatsoever. And really does need to just go away.

Di said...

That's exactly how I feel too. She should take her imaginary children and leave.

Michelle Latta said...

Agreed

Michelle Latta said...

Man I miss those good ol' days of GH. The writing was sooo much better.

** You're definitely not alone there. At least a LOT of the stuff from the late 70s onward has been uploaded to YT, which I am VERY grateful for. Unfortunately the video quality can vary a LOT.
