|WE GOT MASKS GALORE!|
All I can think of is GH is on some kind of a 'self-awareness' tour at the moment. Strands of things blow in the wind and the 'fillers' have all the substance of runny clam chowder. We sure got the Super Steve this week, didn't we? So many close ups of his big muscles and straining forehead. *sigh*
Thank goodness they put these two in the middle of the Man Landers "Caper". Maxie decides that five Man Landers will scramble up the press and keep the mystery. It also helps Nathan from exposing himself as the blogger. Spinelli ruined it--hilarity ensued. If you missed it, don't worry, the best part is right up there.
Gee, Nathan, do you think the writers just use us for our sex scenes?
I dunno. Do they? Well, maybe...
Did you wash your feet for this scene?
No, did you?
So..Mom told me I don't have a brother. The guy was a real boy though, and a twin. Drew.
Wait, you drew the guy? I thought you painted him.
Come on, Dad..keep up--his NAME is DREW.
Well...and? What are you going to do about it?
I dunno. Maybe talk to Coma Jason?
Why don't you tell Elizabeth?
Why would I do that? I'm finally secret-free. I need to screw up something.
Yeah...I'm awake. What now? Do I have to emote because I'm done with the emoting. Plus, I hate purple. Get me out of this purple shirt.
Hmmmm, that's funny. You've never hated purple before... it's so NOT Jason like..
Huh... you're right. So NOT Jason-like. Even Carly notices the Not Like Jason-Like he is.
MEANWHILE IN "RUSSIA"....
Uh, what are you looking at?
Oh...well...nothing but... I can't help but stare at your...
What? My what?
Um... Mask, that's it! Mask!!
(JasonBurton to himself: Come on, just smell my feet...do it..do it.. smell them then I can escape after you pass out!!)
I'm finally out of my mask and I have to wear this on my face for HOW LONG???!!
MEANWHILE, IN "MONACO" ......
So you want me to explain this story to the viewers? Well, I'm here in "Monaco" with you to talk to this Cassandra lady. I met her, then went to talk to her off camera at her house. All because... well... uh.. what did you say about that, Anna? Oh, a diamond. Or Valentin. Or something. Wake me up before we go back to Port Charles, will ya?
AND FINALLY....in an "UNKNOWN STAIRWELL"
SO, let's see...the parking lot was on the left...and my dressing room was on the right and.. man, they've changed this place around.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Both Griffin and Finn seem to be MIA from the hospital. Not that it matters but you'd think since Griffin was consulting on JasonMiller's case, we would be concerned when he woke up but...NOPE.
The Anna Finn story is painful. So very very painful. Not only is it dull, it's such a waste of these 2 talents. Yes, they are charming, yes they are adorable together but they are literally sitting on a "Monaco" cafe set talking about nothing for days. The great Jessica Tuck is hired and after meeting her once, they decide to have Finn's appointment at her apartment OFF CAMERA. I will never understand this. Nope.
Nelle's past with her Kayak Killing is coming to bite her. Zach's sister talked to Carly then went to Nell's to bitch. Too bad this story (like the last story we had for Nelle) NEVER actually happened on GH. Ergo, interest level? About a 2.0.
Monica was on this week. A point for GH.
The Tale of the 2 Jasons:
So-- Susan was running from Alan because she thought the Qs were going to take her baby. She goes to Heather who already knows Betsy because she's giving Franco to her. Susan finds out she's having (surprise!) twins and she decides she can't fight for both babies when it comes to a custody case. Heather convinces Betsy to take in the "Other Twin" and he's named Andrew (Drew for short). Betsy tells Franco that tragically, Drew died shortly after that photo was taken.
My take is that Jason Miller is Drew and Jason Burton is the Q Jason.
THE MOST SIZZLE MOMENT: WHOO HA!! Did you catch the Java interaction? DAMN!! Burton said thank you to Ava and -- welp. Gulp. She sure has about 90x more chem with this masked guy than priestly Griffin! I can see it now: Jason Burton falls for Ava, Sonny has a meltdown but Carly still invites them to dinner parties!! Yes. Please.
Kristina went to Parker and told her she's dropping out of grad school. (yes, I guess she got her BA degree somewhere off camera). Why? Grades suck and she's going to run Perks for Daddy. Oh, and...that way they can date since she's not a student anymore!! ;eyeroll: I am hoping that Krissy is a savvy mobular wanna be who (like Claws on TNT) ends up money laundering for her father and runs a "pain clinic" on the side. I can even cast Roller if you want me to. Valerie can be the PCPD that tries to get her out. Then they run to the Ozarks..and..Oh wait, totally different show. I wrote a little Fan Fic of my own for Krissy: VISSY Part One . Take a gander!
Nelle, the Kayak Killer got a visit from Zach's sister, Sharon. Sharon was in PC talking to Carly about Nelle's wicked ways. Since this entire story happened OFF CAMERA, I DON'T CARE. Nelle and Michael need to just go make Milk commercials in LA. Bye.
Sam tried to set up Alexis with Dr. Bensch. *sigh* If he had a smidgen of Max Holden in him, it may be fun. As of now? Um..Nope.
That's it! GH is still editing the crap out of every scene so that the nuances and beats are missed. There's also way too many people on here to count--and I just remembered not only is Julian coming back, Laura is as well! Geesh! Totally forgot about her. Speaking of forgetting--remember when Ned made some deal without Michael's knowledge and turned to Olivia with a twinkle in his eye and said "I think we solved our problems"?? You don't? Well, it happened and then-- THEY AREN'T ON THE SHOW anymore. When will they be back? You guess is as good as mine.
**Aunt Stella? Great actress--and??? What?? Couldn't she have been a Nurse? Or...run Kelly's....or how about a hospital admin since Hayden was fired? Hmmmm...
**Molly and TJ. Young couple. Something GH desperately needs. Where are they?
**The missing Cam and Aiden are so laughable now, they need to take a Judy from Family Matters or Bobby from AMC. OR do the right thing and SORA Cameron to at least Josslyn's age. Who doesn't want to see bad boy Cam seduce Carly's Joss? GOLD in them there hills, people!! This is probably one of the best ideas I've had in months so... CARPE DIEM!
Ok! Well, did you enjoy the Will and Grace show? I needed it badly. Just felt like old times. I need Seinfeld back too. When JLD is done with Veep, get it going. Two of my fave shows are coming this month: Good Behavior (TNT) and Riverdale (CW).
The Man in the High Castle (Amazon) is so awesome. It's even got some fluid time shifts going! BUT!! Guess who is in it and doing one hell of a job? Our own Jerry Jacks!! Sebastian Roche plays a Nazi and is just superb. His accent is on point.
What are you watching?? We are going to start "The Wire" and I think Shameless is out with it's new season as well.
We so rarely watch network TV that is was hard to sit through the commercials during This is Us! Should be on one of the platforms, shouldn't it??
Well, you got a bit of Pop Wub with all the TV dish. Have a good Sunday. Thoughts to all in Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands and points in between.
