So, here I am all mouthy on my last podcast yelling: "GET YA FRIENDS TO WATCH THIS SHOW" -- and then this week happened.
I'm going to try to do my best and not be TOO "NELLE NEGATIVE" but..you know.
Gonna be hard, people. If you want a glowing review, please read my previous two-three week blogs. If you don't, sit on down.
I'm having cracked crab because, that's what I feel like.
NOTE: Although this went up at 8am, I got up at the 'real' time of 7am to get it out there early lol.

I had the best 2 weeks in a long time and was expecting...something at least moderately entertaining. I know it can't be all on 100 all the time. I get it. But--come on can you at least try? I think the aftermath of situations can be just as challenging if not more so than the whole time leading up. I'm saying a ball was dropped a bit here.
MOURNING OF THE WEEK: Monday was... Monday. We had Taggert wakin' up...people come in to see him, then welp. He's dead. I'm still not buying it because it was such a ..non-event. He's on...he ignites the show and--he's DEAD? And I didn't get to see him die? IT WAS OFF SCREEN?
HELL NO. Plus, Sonny the sketchy "I've been dead a million times and can do it again" Corinthos was in talking to him so anything's on. Reactions were also mixed. He hadn't been back long enough to get into people's heads and hearts. Trina brought the emotion. Cam brought the goods. Jordan? Welllll..then there's Jordan.
LET DOWN OF THE WEEK: Ok Jordan YOU SAID YOU WERE RESIGNING...and you don't? Girl..you are messing up every scene you are in. If it were up to me, you'd be dead on the docks. There I said it. Thought I'd see some improvement over these months and months but I'm done. The scenes with Liz and Franco? SO weak. With Molly? Unbearable. Speaking of...
SUPERCALAFRAGALISTIC-EXPE-ALLA-DOCIOUS DUH OF THE WEEK: Still goes to.. JORDAN! She raked them in didn't she? How'd you like that talk with Molly? Two kids get kidnapped in your town due to Cyrus and.. all you have is: Well, I got some texts from him. Gee, WHIZ. :eyeroll:
WEEPING WILLOW OF THE WEEK: OMG. Wiley. What are we gonna do with WHY--LEEE. I was thinking about that kid and everyone being all "Well, what's he going to think?... everything is changing"!! Meanwhile, Violet who's way older is coping with her mom bailing, living with a man she basically just met who moved out of the only home she really knew in Port Charles. So pick and choose. I'm already sick of Michael being tired taking care of a kid 24-7 with a house full of staff and of Willow not deciding if she can 'be in his life'. You're NOT that important right now. Sorry, but ya not. We have Chase and Sasha trying to be all "Team Up" while pushing Michael and Willow together. Bye.
I WILL MURDER YOUR ASS OF THE WEEK: Fkin' PETER. Way too much airtime for this dude who has taken up WAY to much of my time.
SET UP OF THE WEEK: SO, Anna suddenly thinks Dr. O set all this up. If she set all this up would she be dumb enough to leave that trail? Um, NO. They are making Anna so desperate to want Peter to be changed she's lost her damn mind. Lesil's in jail, Maxie is believing it and here's hoping Robert is coming to string that boy up by the you know whats.
OUR ONLY HOPE OF THE WEEK: Spinelli who might just be on to Peter's ish. Let him be the Luke Skywalker of our Darth Peter. Amen.
UNDER-WOW'D OF THE WEEK: Yeah.. I got nothin.
HONEY, I'M HOME OF THE WEEK: Meet Dr. Portia, mama of Trina. She was off on a medical conference in Vancouver and wasn't here when the mobular went down. She's not happy Ava's all nicey to Trina however, since she knows Ava's connections. She and Liz seem to know each other and chat about her divorce from Taggert and their moving to PC to get away from his "dangerous life". Good actress, she fit right in and I like her. Even IF she was mean to my Ava!!
JUSTICE SYSTEM FAIL OF THE WEEK: And yet, I was happy! If only to shut Carly up!! Nelle is off. I love how the judge was all "ok, charges dropped" with nary an explanation. WHOOPS PCPD Lost that Passport!! (No one took a digital of the evidence? Um.. okay) WHOOPS Willow's word against a chick that's been in jail for the last year. But! You know I'm team Nelle so yeah, I was happy she was out. Happy too that Valentin is the one doing all of this. I think I'll be backing him to crush Michael. Anyone else think Nelle might be killed? I'm hoping against hope but it would make for a murder-mystery for the ages.
MY ONE JOY OF THE WEEK: Cameron! What! Talking about ... Zander? Holy Moly. That's what I've been asking for --and ASKING FOR. Now have him to Google what happened to him at the end of his life. Oh man, that will change a boy. Yep. I'm here for it too.
RUNNER UP: I'll have scones and tea, please!
Taggert died on the operating table.
Jordan protests working with Sonny and Co
TJ might be missing but according to Jordan, might be just off enjoying a burrito.
Nelle's charges of assault got dropped. No word on her parole being violated
Valentin got her one better by stealing the passports from the PCPD
Anna believes Dr. O is the one behind all the crap Peter really is doing
Violet loves to skate and eat scones
Julian threatened Brook's producer on the docks.
Nina and Jax... kanoodling in the office
Maxie feels unappreciated at work
Trina's Mom, Dr. Portia is introduced. She doesn't like Ava hanging around her daughter
Alexis and Neil share a NYC night ...just by chance
Cameron talks about his bio dad, Zander, who he doesn't know went out in "death by cop"
Ava brought chocolate chip cookies.
Brook Lynn was told by her producer he wants her ELQ shares.
That's it! The show just let me down this week in so many ways. When Taggert died (and I don't think he really did) it was just ... meh. The Wiley thing should be about Lucas and not so much about Michael and Willow at this juncture. OR at least balance it out. The set up of Willow and Michael is slapping us in the face. I'm thinking with Britt back, Sasha's going to be out. She'll go to Italy and that will be that. They look way too much alike to be around and let's face it, Britt is a WAYYYY more interesting character. Get this Peter ish over with. I never understood if we were supposed to "like" him and root for him or just plain hate his ass. This character hasn't really worked since day one for me. We shall see what next week brings but please let it flow and be something I really want to see. (Because it IS all about me!!) LOL
Have a good one.
