I'm just saying, Velveeta does the trick
I'm just sitting here thinking there's a Polar Vortex coming next week--and JaSam were in the river water for like--ever. LOL Grilled Cheese and Sex just fixed that right up!! Maybe I should try a magical grilled cheese for my romantic life. *wink*
Let's get to it. I'm just having coffee and some--grilled cheese!
I'm dividing this week's stories up into 4 parts--going worst to best --
But First.......let me take a selfie!
CALAMITY IN THE CATACOMBS: When I first heard about this, I thought: WELP!! Here we go...maybe the kids get lost.. finally have some hot lust. Spooky Catacombs...winter-- wandering around under Port Charles. Maybe finding Faison's Brain!!? Anyway--what a nothing burger with a side of hilarity. (and not in the good way). Should I even go over the whole Ladder Fiasco? Good Gravy-- 4 adults and none of them could figure out how to get 2 kids out of there safely?! Not only that, Jason fell through the floor! Sam runs and grabs her scuba gear (guess she has that tank at the ready) and goes and finds Jason floating in the non-frozen river.
SCUBA SEX : And there it is. Why did we have the weird catacomb drama? So Sam could basically go 'back in time' and save Jason like she failed to do years ago. That all led to a fire, some sweatpants for Jason and making da love. All I can say is I hope JaSam fans enjoyed it all. I still say they should have had some unabashed sex ages ago but-- :handsintheair:
BAKING BROs: My second favorite story this week was of course, little Aiden and his passion for baking. I'm glad they found a hobby for Aiden that involves Franco eating. You know I'm all for that. Jake helps out and finally lets Liz and Franco know that Aiden's being called "Gayden" on Switch. Now, there was a LOTTA discussion about the whole "boys don't get bullied for baking now a days" and while I think this is true, I also can see how this story evolved. Aiden isn't involved in sports and yes, that is a cause for some bullying, especially by boys that age. God forbid you suck at gym. With so many kids on traveling teams all over the place, those that don't play organized sports are often left out. That said, I can see how the 'whole' of Aiden was ripe for bullying and it morphed into this. I loved the talk Liz had with Jake-- Hudson is such a good actor. He just "gets it". Liz and Aiden were gold as well. Franco had that look of anger, horror and disgust when he saw "Gayden" on the iPad--perfect from RoHo. Nicely done and I am glad to see more family scenes.
BEST STORY OF THE WEEK:
RYAN'S BAD AIM: In a heart pounding show on Monday, Ryan went in and caught Lulu researching all about his murders. It was a great show-- Jon L brought it in spades. Cool, calm and killing! He misses and when he goes for Lulu a second time he collapses. WHAT?! Yep. Lulu flees and makes it downstairs.
In a twisty-twist, Ryan loses his sight just like Anna did. Ava's there for him and unknowingly, takes his bloody shoes home. Then comes the FAnna questioning and the realization from Robert that Kevin did have an involvement with the same "Cabot' guy Anna did. (Don't ask me who he is exactly but he was in the DVX). Hell, Robert's back so this earns an A+ from me. Plus, Ryan's back in Lulu's room so there's still hope she's in a coma a bit longer.
OTHER THINGS THAT HAPPENED: Caption Version
OMG...it's.Michael... HIDE THE BABY!
I can't just hide the baby, Brad.. I mean he's not a sack of potatoes..
Well, put a lampshade on him then! Throw him behind the bar! Anything!
Oh my GOD, I told you, they are UNDER THE CITY....
Drew, this isn't Batman..
I'm telling you, it IS Batman and I feel like the Penguin sometimes.
SCENES OF THE WEEK: Sonny's quiet realization that it's time for Mike to go, Liz' telling Jake "we'll just have to love him through it' when it comes to Aiden.
FACE OF THE WEEK: There it is... Franco's rage, horror, angst and upset over seeing "Gayden" on the Switch game. Damn, see, that's what I live for on soaps. Moments like this.
NEW SET OF THE WEEK: "Rice Square"... which they should have named something cool. Rice? Huh?
PROP OF THE WEEK: iPad .. a big message started a bigger conversation
I give this week a solid B-- even that comical "rescue stuff" because it was pretty campy and I did laugh a lot. We had a blast on Twitter with it...can't ask much more of a TV Show. The whole "WHEN WILL JASAM HAVE SEX" is over. OV-ER. Phew, thanks. Now let's move on.
I don't really bother with EMMY PreNoms---I never have. I'll list the nominations when they come out. Hit that link for Daytime Confidential's list! By the way, if you're into podcasts, they have a good one.
That's it! Hope you have a good Sunday and see you next week.
