|GET OFF YOUR ASS...
I'm looking at GH in the rearview mirror again! I didn't watch Wed/Thursday's shows other than FF at a hectic pace. Friday was...meh. Even with the "possible" Ava reveal? It's so not exciting. Hey, when twitter is more entertaining than the show you know it's in trouble!
I have some cheesecake here left from last night. I'm stuffing my face with it!
|Me, trying to do the blog this week.
This week, I just didn't care. Summer is usually one of my fave soap times. I think things started going south awhile ago and the management affected the writing/editing and candance of this show. Call my crazy but that's my take. It's fractured.
Here I am:
I don't care about ONE THING on this show right now.
Don't care if Ava's identity is revealed to the 2 people that don't know it already
Don't care about TJ
Don't care about Morgan's supposed instant pop-up "bipolar" story
Maxie/Nathan are a bore.
Don't care if it comes out about Valerie.
Don't care who killed Silas
CarSon wedding? Saw it...four times before
Dillon's movie? Zzzzz
ELQ story? SNAIL PACE
Brad/Lucas Wedding: I did care until you messed it all up with nonsense
Jake/Jason: Fell asleep in April over this
Mob Shit? OVER It about 6 years ago.
What's a poor Wubber to do? I know new writers are coming. I think we are seeing some changes now. Maybe it's the flux of the show-- maybe it's because GH has way way too many things going on that get dangled then dropped. Or dangled and picked up every other week. Maddening.
GH is just too boring and has way too many characters for me to care about. Not sure what will happen, but if I'm not on the blog for a bit, this is why.
Let me get one thing straight though--the actors for the most part are on point. The dialog can be tricky and rich--they have lots to say in a little bit of time. The gems I get here and there are everything.
By the way, Rumor has it Vincent Irizarry (David on AMC) may be coming to the show. I tell you what...he's a fave of mine but nope. Too many people on the show already, imo. WAY too many. Genie's back in the fall too!
Glaring things this week:
Olivia being THE most hypocritical one of the bunch with Sonny/Avery. She GUSHED about him having his daughter back! Is Tickled Michael "came to his senses"...lah lah lah. At the exact same time she's trying to decide if she's going to let Julian live in the same town as their kid. Um...okay. Makes NO sense and I'm sick of the Sonny propping.
Sonny's in full "Don" mode now. Mentor to TJ, inviting Julian into "Casa Corinthos" next Monday. Shooting a guy just to show what a man he is. Getting married to the same woman for the 5th time. Yeah zzzzzzzzzz. Rumor is he gets shot. SNORE. SO what? It would be like him getting arrested again. Who cares?
The BiPolar Excuse: So, Sonny's a murderer because he's bipolar? No..he's a murderer who happens to have a bipolar condition. This crap about him killing AJ because of that is a mess. Now the hurried thing about Morgan maybe being bipolar too? He's acting like a paranoid jerk-off more like it. I haven't seen the manic-depressive things we should have seen for awhile now. Sabrina gave Michael a little lesson in the disease but...seriously? Hey, when you portray mental illness you'd better get it right, that's all I'm saying. Who doesn't want to smack Morgan's smug face up there?!
Nina and the Papers: She didn't sign them. End of story. She and Heidi continue to be a high point for me.
Ava and Her DNA: Scotty's got it. What's he going to do with it? The one thing I'm glad for here? Kin Shriner. He's awesome. Hey, there's that ugly shirt Kiki wears. See it? LOL
The Brad Wedding: So he married Rosie so they couldn't testify against each other. But neither one knew where the other was for almost 18 months. Okay...?? They were on Monday, then not again all week. Ergo...another story on perpetual hold. Dropping the aftermath of this (or at least having a scene where Brad and Ro chatted alone) is the exact reason why no one CARES! Where is your momentum?
Molly and TJ: When you have a character like Molly and she's on about 2x in 3 months, don't care.
Over Usage of A Zillon Flashbacks: What the hell? Friday had FOUR flashbacks in one episode. Flashbacks of the same week mostly. Time wasters. And the Hayden ones? OMG if I have to sit through her getting her memory back to remember who Jake/Jason is I'll scream.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Ok, do NOT FAINT but..I really loved the Maxie Valerie scene. Loved them looking at Carly's jewelry and laughing. It was very natural and a great build up to them becoming friends. (until Maxie finds out lol) We need so many more of these types of things. Maxie's outfit was just adorable as well.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Once again, Heidi. Best job on GH!
FACE OF THE WEEK: Julian...he just had one bummer of a week, didn't he?
And that's it... ! There's one interview you really should read and it's Michael Fairman and Billy Miller. Very good and has a lot of info but Mr. Miller keeps it classy. Here's the LINK
I hope your week of watching was better than mine. I know there are quite a few people that are liking the show at the moment. I'm happy. Seriously, glad that people are into it.
Have a great Sunday!!
