|Um..um..I'm a bit kerfluffled!
So, take all this with a grain of salt. Maybe it was the illness ...but this week was VERY up and down for me. (literally) I laughed so hard I cried on Tuesday, and then by Friday I was snoozin' again.
Strap on your face masks, I don't want to pass this on, and get ready to scrub in!
Well-- There was Luke, who has saved the world many times (including once where it was going to freeze) failing to watch his back when he had Heather in his sights! How Carly didn't make a peep when those hulks moved in, I don't have a clue.
By the way--how in the HELL did Heather get her out to Spoon Island? Don't get me wrong, I loved the hijinks with the kiddies as much as the next gal, but geesh!! There's ONE launch out there. And if she didn't use that, er..didn't anyone see her? Let's not mention the ice this time of year. Because you know I never, ever mention that (lol)
Whatever. Both Luke and Carly are out on vacation so, we don't even have to think for awhile.
THE DR O reveal!! Splendid!! Superb!! AwesomeSauce!! You know I was pushing for it. This is one of my actual tweets from December:
since this is a SOAP...let's agree to forget Dr. O's really bad stuff and let her be on staff at
#GH. Diplomatic Immunity? #KeepDrO
So..there you go MY FAULT! LOL I tweeted it A LOT. :) #KeepDrO ... and my wish was granted! I loved the reveal. I love that they are keeping her. I do think the Cassadines probably bought GH and that's part of the reason. I don't care. I love KG and am so happy she's back. This seems to split fans right down the middle. You either embrace it, or hate it.
Isn't it weird how I can complain about Heather and Carly getting to Spoon Island in the middle of winter but can suspend disbelief over this??! I don't get it myself other than I've watched TV so long I live for weird things to happen. Dr. O is bone-crushingly nasty and will make an awesome COS to mess with everyone. The Heather/Carly story is just sloppy, imo. And boring. Did I say boring?
Yeah. I said it. I hate when people are tied up for days on end, not being able to scream/yell when they could. Not being able to pee. Ho hum. And Heather stopped being fun after her hand and shot out of that grave!
Liz was thrown in a few scenes this week I noticed. Tell me again why she and Patrick weren't "the love story" when Robin was away? Would fit so much better and would dovetail nicely into all of this. Liz could have been Betty--and the results would have been much more glorious.
Franco hid out in a closet, a TINY little closet..waiting for Starr to gasp and breathe heavy and try to get rid of Michael. I loved that little closet. Like a hobbit house. Hee hee.
Lucas wastes NO TIME!! I didn't see that coming--at all. I also liked the bar scene with some of Brad's back story. Asian Quarter!!! yeah!! I'm not going to write about it all right now. Just know it was a story when Robin was like 8 and the goods were hidden in her doll. LOL
So, when is someone going to mention Stephen/Caleb--or is this guy being paid off? You know I don't care one way or another. Just let the Coma Woman wake up and let it go. Silas is in the hoose-gow. (that's a Gramma word) and Todd will be there shortly. More Todd/McBain banter on the way! Copper McHunk-a-Hottie still needs some loosening up, btw. I don't believe anyone (let alone McSilas) would give a damn about being 'strong armed' by him.
Moronigan and the Mobular Misfits. Don't care. Still don't care. Julian gets beat up by 3 guys. Whatever. Ho HUM Morgan gets his eyebrows all up in a knot.. and Ava pouts. Tell me again where this is going? I see the Jr. Mints are going to be on again next week. Please at LEAST make one of them a damn meth addict or a cutter or-- get Rafe some fangs. Maybe Ric's coming back will give Molly something to do other than stand there and go "Oh, Tee-Jay"!!
Again this week Anna isn't in Robin's block-taping orbit. So disappointing. Why can't we have both stories going at once? At least tell her about Betty being PG. Robert's last day is the 30th, so get ready for that.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: "Does she have Bieber Fever"?? Asks Robert... Love the whole thing!! THEN, Anna walks in!! Ok, so she was all police mode but still.. Damn I wish Robin was sitting there too. Just because I'm mushy like that.
PROP of the WEEK: Not sure it's a PROP (ok, it's not but I'm picking so shut up!) ..but I think the FOG gets a nod this time. It was unexpected and gave the pier an eerie look. Made me think of vampires. Oh, did I say that!?
FACES OF THE WEEK: This doesn't capture the TRUE GRANDER of their faces at seeing Dr O but having Monica and Silas be stunned at the same time, same room---with Robin, Paddy and Britt? YES!! More please.
SO, one of my GH groups I talk with on FB (old pals from wayyyy back) are fed up with the show and many aren't watching. Which is surprising given the uptick in ratings. When Robert then Robin leaves? Wow, don't even know. I really enjoy most days--but as a story that is cohesive and flowing? Still having trouble with the choppy factor. I feel like it's a bunch of balloon, floating away in all different directions and I just want to hold tight, bunch them up and ground them for awhile.
Hey, there's always DONNA MILLS to look forward to.
I'm in and out this week when it comes to watching at 2. I know I'm out tomorrow-so I'll set up a blog for you, then write when I can. Have a good one. We are due for another Polar Craptastic Vortex. High is like minus TWO on Tuesday. wah. My cold will never end, Gus will lead me to my death in the snow drifts and I'll never find out what has happened to Carly.
