Clean Up Day



LUCAS HAS NO FACIAL HAIR!! 

Julian is sad about the estrangement from Lucas. He deletes Kim's number from his phone. Brooklyn comes in and orders a Black Russian. I love her already. She just fits into a daytime show--the acting is perfect. 
Brad comes in later. Threatens him with "telling Sonny" lol yada yada.. things happen. Julian throws everyone out of the bar. 

Lucas tells Brad he cut off all ties with Jules. Brad looks scared. Jules says he doesn't care about Julian anymore at all.  Dr. O runs into Julian in the hall. He tells her he knows Brad was blackmailed by her to change the DNA results and it's not COOL. She says that Brad's a liar and he'll find that out sooner or later on his own. OMGOMOGOD!! THEN-- Dr. O says to Lucas "I will be forced to tell you about your husband and Wiley's real father"##!!!!! 
Brad interrupts them OF COURSE!! 
Lucas knows something is up tho and says to Brad "There's always another lie, Tell me about Wiley's father"!!! 

Liz lets Finn know she knows about Violet and that Anna's home. Finn then goes to see Anna. They get labs back and realize it is Thallium poisoning. They give her Prissan Blue dye which is a cure to flush it out of her system. They are trying to figure out where she could have gotten it. She tells them she eats out most of the time. Dun Dun dunnnnnnnn

Alexis can't figure out how she got rat-poisoned. Finn says it COULD be that..TJ's right but Thallium has been banned for years. They talk about the restaurants she's eaten at. SHe said she'd think Helena was doing it but she's dead. 

Bench trial-- Spin, Jason and Diane are there. The Fed guy hasn't shown up yet for it.  Too bad--he comes in late.  Looks like the white-haired guy from Mad Men but he's not him. HE says Shiloh was a wonderful person who saved so many lives. Sam deserves to be punished.  They do the witness testimonies. BO--RANG. Rehash of the boat fight--jason's fights with Shank..Jason's arrest record.
All you need to know is the judge was going to read the verdict and it was the end of the show. 

Image

Franco is going to DUMP KIM!! He wants the procedure. She's like ..we can stay here!! He says if he doesn't get it, he's no better than the man that did it to Franco in the first place. She cried. He goes and talks to Liz at GH ...nothing was said today yet.

PREVIEW: Oh, Hayden is going to move into Kim's place!! 

Podcast Number Nine

Coming down Chicago Line (anyone remember that song?!) 






That's right, "Character Growth" is the title of this newest podcast and you can hear me gush over the show if you so choose. I AM the Pollyanna of the group, that's for sure. 

Check here OUR TAKE MEDIA and listen there or  on iTunes, Google or Spodify. I think on Sundays I will ask for your rating of GH from 1-10 and include the "Wubs Blog Bunch" on the show. 

Have a good day. GH will be on today, but probably not Tues-Thursday due to the hearings. I will have a few posts up to ponder however, and may have some up if the episodes are available on Hulu.

Sunday Surgery: Redemption




Image
What I live for on soaps

What a week.. between my loving the show and the interruptions, it was wacky!! Redemption: Hayden to Finn... Valentin to Anna... Sonny to Ava... Jason to DrewCo.. and a little bit of Lulu and Val too. 

GOODNESS!! 
The show flowed again this week, scenes were a bit longer and we even got a little action on the docks. Dialog was the best I've heard in a long time and it was consistently good. 

So, a feast is in order!! Grab whatever you can (I'm having a bagel and cream cheese for carb strength.

A Little Bit of This..

So I watched yesterday's show and I guess part of GH was on today. I got in at 2:35. Next week is sure going to mess with everything!! We'll be seeing holiday stuff deep in January!! 
NOTE: Today's show started late. ABC said you can see it on ABC.com in it's entirety. East Coast 3pm people will see it in full as will Central and West Coast times. 

I LOOOOOOOOVED YESTERDAY'S SHOW!! It was amazing. Ava and Sonny? Finn and Violet? damn! 

Image

TODAY'S SHOW: 

Cam and Sonny. Sonny yells at Cam about drinking...driving..being an idiot. Reads him the riot act.  Nice scene with Sonny and Liz when she picks up Cameron. They leave with some of Sonny's homemade sauce. 

Hayden and Liz. Hayden tells Liz that Finn told Violet he was her daddy and it was "magical". Then Anna came home (sad horn lol) . Liz tells Hayden not to hurt Finn again, he had a hard time getting over her. Hayden says that she's not going to come between he and Anna.

Alexis and Neil--waiting for her test results.  TJ figures out it might be rat poison.

Kim and Jules. Shes' trying to blame Julian for her trying to rape Drew.  She tells him he never was "her Charlie and he's just the man he always was"... says goodbye. 

Franco and Jason look at the water.... Franco realizes his body is Franco's. LOL ..welp! Okay then! 

Anna and Finn..she says that she's sorry she found out the way she did..but it's not his fault. She says you'll make a "wonderful father" ..and "Hayden knows it too" BOOM.

Jason goes to GH to check on Monica....they hug awww..

Kim goes to the empty apartment and waits for "Drew" ... he comes to the door and looks serious. 

OK, look for SUNDAY Surgery. I'll catch up on all the episodes and have my thoughts. I think that the week was pretty good but interruptions will suck the life out of any show. 

Have a good Friday!

So, that GH Thing...


Image

Wednesday's show will air today.  Canada got it yesterday and I know that Finn tells Violet he's her Daddy and it was pretty cute. Robert also sees Anna. 

Today is my day off from GH so I will catch it on Hulu-- and then it's off again Friday. Just when the show is getting really good and I'm enjoying tweeting again..BOOM!!

On the Days story--- I'm hearing from people in the 'industry" that it's really not a huge deal and it's to save some money and the show WAS "picked up" again. They tape so far in advance-- and this way they can offer actors something at the time of taping. I'm not going to pretend to know what's happening, that's for sure. The writer, producer/actors are on twitter saying calm down, TMZ is sounding the funeral bells and fans are left scratching their heads. 

It's almost the holiday season...maybe order the Port Charles Travel Guide from Amazon or Maurice's new book for a fave GH fan or yourself?? I really wish GH would step it up on the merch front. I could use a fun hoodie or something. 


See ya on the flip side!

WANT FRIES WITH THAT!!? 

Monday, November 11, 2019

OH NO...Here comes the SNOW


Well, we were predicted a foot and now it's sure snowing like that will likely be the case. Dang it. It's TOO SOON! We were lax at getting in the deck stuff too and our table is covered. LOL.  I'm just not ready. Tillie's even hunkered down! 


We will have a podcast to put up soon. We had fun doing it and it ran long because we were excited about the show!! YES! I said Excited! As soon as that's up, I'll let you know. 

TODAY'S SHOW WAS AWESOME. :) 

So, Finn is at Anna's..they show her roses, bulldog and Union Jack. He's eating a sandwich and the doorbell rings. Is it ANNA? NOPE....womp womp, it's Hayden with Violet. Dang.  I mean, I just wanted it to be Anna!! I guess in the preview she comes home and sees Hay and Finn on the couch!! UT OH. 

Laura had Valentin and Nina hauled down to the PCPD for questioning on the disappearance of Cassandra. Valentin is like WHY ME?? Laura said she was his first phone call from jail.  Valentin turns it around and demands to know HOW she escaped. 

Lulu notices Charlotte is gone. They freak out.
Cassie is on the docks with Charlotte's phone. She turns off the tracking device. 


Lulu calls PCPD and tells Jordan, that she probably just wandered off. Then the police come, show pics of Cassandra. Brad thinks he remembers seeing her there. Lulu freaks out when they show her the photo. 

On the docks Cassandra tells Charlotte she is going to use her Daddy's love for her to get him right where she wants him. 

Lucas tells Julian to buzz off and he was a jerk when he told him he was gay and even though he's less 'homophobic now" he's still a liar!! Julian says he did stage the affair but he's going to tell him WHY. He said Brad did "shady stuff" but he knew Lucas wouldn't believe him if he told. Lucas tells him he's done. BYE Julian says What if I tell you something that will make you understand??
Phone rings..It's Brad telling Lucas about Charlotte/.

Jax is really pissed at Nikolas about breaking out Cassandra from jail "She's a REAL CRIMINAL" lol.. then Jason comes over. OMG Stupid Nikolas rented the van with JAX'S COMPANY CREDIT CARD!! ahahaahahaa. Jason says he didn't think Jax had anything to do with the escape-- but that his card was stolen OR did JERRY HELP?? Perfect use, because Jason would think that!! Jax is like NOPE. Jason goes to leave and sees muddy footprints! Who's are these? 
Nikolas is just fking up ALL OVAH! lol He must have hit his head HARD going down that cliff lol. 
Jax says it's the construction worker's mud. Jason says he can tell he's holding back and they've not always been on the same side but he help him, no questions asked. 

Dr. O finds Brad in Kelly's..asks him what he's done to cover his tracks with the DNA tests.  He said he had to because Lucas was suspicious. 

Ok, a TON happens during this show and I didn't get it all in. WATCH IT. Great movement today and just a lot going on!! 

END: 
Cassandra calls Valentin, Nina bitches at Lulu, creating a diversion so Valentin can talk to Cassandra. She asks for stuff...he said he would do it. 

OMGOMGOOGOGOD!!!!!!!!!!! Charlotte kicks Cassie and tries to escape. Cassandra says "I know how to hurt little girls" and GUESS WHO STEPS OUT TO SAVE HER?? UNHAND THAT GIRL!!
it's ANNA FREAKING DEVANE!!!!!!!!!!!!! GAH!! :clapping: 

Brook Lynn Comes Back To Port Charles!



Amanda Setton --Nu Brook Lynn Ashton 


SO... lookie here-- BROOK LYNN IS BACK, KIDS!! We are getting a Q in the house!! Interesting, no?? 
Check out TV Line for the whole skivvy, but I'll give you a little background: 



Adrianne Leon--Most remembered for playing Brook Lynn 


Brook Lynn Ashton is the daughter of Lois and Ned. She was feisty and could belt out a tune with the best of them. She aired first  in 2004.  Leon also wrote songs for the show behind the scenes and performed them as well.  She was on until 2006, then reprised the role in 2010-11.  I really liked Adrianne in the role. She got an Emmy nod for best younger actress as well. She is currently a chef and doesn't act anymore according to Source Ryan which is why she may have been recast. 

Things to know: She dated Diego Alkazar
                             She was Maxie's Roomie at PCU
                             Left Port Charles to go live with Lois to get her music career on track

Fun Fact: Ned and Lois named her Brook Lynn a place special to them. At the time it was quite the unusual name. 

The actress taking over the role is 33 in real life (I think Brook Lynn would be late 20's early 30's) and has been on OLTL and The Mindy Project. Good actress and she must be able to sing? I hope this gets Ned and Olivia on more. You know she's around to cause trouble--Brook Lynn wasn't a wallflower!! Now, get that Q household on more. We do have a ton of characters on this show but Brook is a "legacy" character and I think will add some good stuff to the canvas. 

What say you? You ready for another Q/Ashton? Who do you think she'll be paired with? I'd go for Krissy or Chase if Willow finds her way to Michael. (She's Michael's cousin so they won't go there, I don't think!!) See you at 2!

Sunday Surgery: The Dead Tell No Tales



Image

When GH gets it right--it GETS IT RIGHT!! OMG I loved this so much. I also was struck at the fact that Ava is in Shadybrook for thinking she saw a dead man... who's really alive and Lucas is walking around talking to a dead man that's really dead! (That's how my mind works, folks!) 

I was going to skip the blog this week because I missed most of last week but I thought it would be a cop-out so here I am! This week seemed to be pure Dan and Chris and I was actually engaged when I was watching. Seems like a whole lot of people are on together again and the stories are picking up. 

Grab a juice and sit on down!

I'M BAAAACK!!

I whipped through yesterday's show...

I love how they were out picking up trash..Even Cassandra, huge fugitive federal inmate (LOL)--and Curtis is all like "Girrrrrrrrrrrrrl"!!! Can I talk to Sam McCall? The guard is just like UP!!
I see Nina is trying to confess to Nathan at the gravesite... we know she's just fakin' all this.  What's she going to do anyway? Kill him with kindness? Just throw him off the parapet?? 

Wiley is adorbs. 


NELLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEE!!!!!!!! I am loving this unexpected development. I love Tad too, even if he is ALL SOUTHAN.... We know Shank is her "dead hubby". 

Image

Jax has GIANT SUCCULENTS!! The moss must be jelly!! 

SHOVEL IN THE FACE!! NICE MOVE! LOL --Sam was like: DERP!! 


Image


TODAY'S SHOW: 

Jax in Shadybrook visiting Ava.  Maura's skin is flawless. He tells her it's his fault she had so many online trolls...and that caused her to be anxious. (not that Nikolas is alive). She says she's blurred the lines between the living and the dead-- and she's being haunted. She tells him about double crossing Spencer because she wanted her face fixed. 
Jax still isn't telling her. 
Ava thinks he's just there to get the portrait. She lets him have it. GOD I love Maura! 

Nikolas is driving Cassie in the van. He said that her actions have dissoved their partnership. She ends up running out of the van-- Stupid Nik didn't lock the door lol. That's dumb. 

Jason is the FIRST person in the park after the guard got hit? LMAO??!! Chase comes in after Jason calls 911. They tell him that Cassandra did this.  Chase does give Jason shit about being in the park where Sam was doing work. He said they talked earlier at the jail and she said she'd be out there. 

Willow talks to Brad in Kelly's. She see he's upset. She says he's a good friend to her and she can help him. (if she only knew lol). He doesn't say much.. 

Lucas is in the graveyard. TONY IS BACK TODAY!! I miss Brad Maule. He's a ghost helping Lucas through his stuff. They talk about his childhood. He recons the whole Brad story.  Tony talks about being a dad and also BJ's death. Awwww. Great scenes. Too bad Guza killed him off in the great purge.
Bobbie calls Lucas and tells him Julian is looking for him. Tony leaves. 

Beautiful scene with Jackie Z and Brad Maule in the hospital. GAH!! I teared up so hard!! 

CASSANDRA takes Charlotte! Tells her to 'save Nina' and don't scream. Monday, they look for her.

Million Dollar Smile

So, for this day-- my 3rd day out of GH I have to be at the dentist. Which, got me thinking about smiles. 
Dimpled Smile of Sonny
Coy Smile of Ava....
Cute smile of Avery. 

Who's your fave soap smile of all time?? There are so many to choose from because I think it's a pre-order thing that when daytime actors audition they put on a WIDE SMILE!! The one that instantly sprang to mind is surprising to me because he's not been on the show in forever. But boy, I did enjoy his smile when he was on!!


He's so my "type too'!!! I do miss ol' Ethan Lovett-- he who championed Krissy when Keifet was abusing her. I'm glad Nathan Parsons move on but I did like the character. 



Almost forgot the ladies!! Who's my fave? Angie from AMC. Loved her when I was a teen. Her dimples lit up the room. She still has them! 


 What say you? Who's your fave teeth-showing start?? Leave us a comment below...

First Impressions.





So, NuNik isn't bothering me!! I liked the flashbacks and how Hayden and Jax came to be in the whole mess. I personally wish Nikolas would just kill Valentin and throw him off the parapet, but I'm mean. 
Liked Laura talking to Sonny about Ava. Inspired. Especially given Laura's history of mental illness.
Julian has a new set! He's out of flannel!! He's SO ZEXY threatening Brad!!! :clapping:
I did NOT like Nikolas throwing Ava under the bus. 
The DNA testing thing...geesh Louise. Now we have to wait for Curtis to find out about the samples being tainted. 
Nina's biting her tongue
Maxie's birthday was mentioned! Yeah!  with Peter ...boo....
LOVE Dr. O...but wished she was in costume. I'm not complaining tho.

I'M NOT HERE AGAIN TODAY-- getting my hair done. Then tomorrow I have a dentist appointment and I'm not here Thursday!! I will try to watch at night and give my impressions the next day however. Thank you for your patience.

Welcome to Monday


BLAST FROM THE PAST! 


I said yesterday I'm out most of the week with STUFF to DO!! Here is last night's podcast to keep you company. It's Our Take Media's GH Episode 7  . We gab about the teens, NuNik and everything that happened last week on GH. It's always interesting to see what others have to say when you have a different opinion.
And you KNOW you're right!! LOL 
Keep in mind I'm the one without the accent!!! 


As for the cover that I threw up there, I was going through old Google albums and this came up. I have NO memory of this!! Carly and Johnny?? Ummmm. Ok...I know I was around during that time but dang. I remember OLTL people coming over. Why don't I remember Carly and Johnny?  I was a huge JoLivia fan ..I do remember that. What other pairings happened that are lost in the fog?  Maxie and Franco had zex when he first came to town. (
as James Franco that is) -- Dante and Valerie... and in the 70's and 80's everyone was just cross-bed hopping! 

Anyway--have a good one. I'll hopefully see you on Wed. If I watch on Hulu I may throw up an opinion or two.

Sunday Surgery: Chug It

You should have gotten a White Claw


So, here we are!! Reliving our youth!! So many things to unpack this week..it was crazy!! I felt like GH blew their entire 'extras' budget for the year!! Sets were full!! People were moving around!! Masks came off! Kids were throwing up! Drama in the House! 

Grab anything but whiskey and coke.. that ish is not good for you!!

Fatigue Friday

Image
Dr O should have been the Bird Lady 

Ok, so..sorry-- I'm not doing great today. Combo of having a class full of 3 year olds freaking out yesterday, the wind/cold here messing with my sinus' and fatigue. I'm not gonna make GH

I did see yesterday's show and have a few thoughts:

Thank goodness they let the teens do teen stuff like drinking. 

FRIEND ZONE for Cam--and Trina from Joss and Dev..so hey, those 2 should get together. 

TWO parties? What the hello extra-budget! People were all over the place.

Cassandra and Sam. I was like USE THE KNIFE lol. 

What else. Um.... OH the MASK in the room! Turns out it's Nikolas (see below post for info). He hasn't acted yet, I'm here to see how he does. I DO think he's young looking but he sure does have that "Cassadine" LEWOOK...  (Rich Lux Voice) 

So, use this space for today's highlights. I have a busy weekend and I HOPE I can get the Surgery Done, even if it's an outline.
