|But Auntie Helena came to me in my dreams and TOLD me to say those things, Papa!!|
Geesh, another week I enjoyed!! Even while sick, I managed to get into the show and not be too crabby. I'm liking the Aiden story a lot and it really turned things around for me. Couple that with Ryan and Ava and WIN!! We also had a 'fantasy' show on Monday which centered on Sonny. I'll have a few things to say about that but I wrote most of it when I posted after watching. SONNY DAY
This blog is more of a analysis than anything else. I haven't done one like this in awhile. I had more time to think this week because I was home sick. Sorry-- you may have to just endure and indulge me for a bit!!
Since I've had a cold, let's have chicken soup. Nothing does it up like good old noodles and broth. Sasha will soon find out HER soup isn't so great though!
GETTING RIGHT TO THE POINT:
These stories need fixing and or abandonment:
Sonny's DA Obsession
The Zip Drive
That's just my two cents. Oscar's cancer is failing because unfortunately, I don't care about him. Just don't care. I'm loving Cam and Joss-- when she finds out about Oscar I can only hope she's already moved on to Cam and goes through the motions. What would have been way better is the whole Cult story, focusing on Krissy. Valerie has to come and intervene. There's potential there.
Sonny's DA Damsel in Distress? I'm not liking this story because it makes the woman look weak and frail (again)-- and makes Sonny the lord and master over her emotions. Couple that with Carly jealousy and hell, we've been here SO MANY TIMES it hurts. Just seeing Margot answer that door sans make up, looking all innocent and Sonny being all menacing. ugh
JaSam..what is this?? I get the need to "wait" when Steve first came back but--come on! It's like Sam, Drew and Jason have become celibate since this whole mind-fiasco!! The whole "Pumpkin Donuts and Parade"-- nope. You either need to get them hot and heavy asap or drop the whole thing.
Memory Stick--Ditto whatever the hell Drew is doing. He's not even going to Curtis' wedding so-- whatevvvsszz..that flash drive is going to corrode before they even get to it!
These stories need to gain speed and remain on the front burner:
Ryan's Devious Plotting/Murders
Possible Cult Connection
On to the best parts ot GH!!
CAREER DAY!! What a fun special showcase. Loved it. LOVED Franco telling Finn that the classroom was all the way at the other end of the building !!
Aiden's Story: Brings in so many pieces. Liz and Laura... Scott and Franco.. Lulu, Val and Nina plus the whole school aspect. I really like all of it so far. Even the school meetings got better with age.
Willow--who I call Winnie because I think her voice could be a bit...more "assertive" grew on me after those parent meetings. I didn't like the Friz one as much as I did the Nina/Val/Lulu-- probably because Nina was such a pill!
Sorry, it was hilarious to watch Valentin and Lulu stare open mouthed as she was defending Charlotte!! Michelle owned those scenes too. Later on twitter she wrote that it was hard for her because she didn't want to be "that parent"!! LOL.. even actors have trouble when they have to say things that they don't believe in. Anyway, I am delighted it's Charlotte being such a brat. Why? Bratty kids are wonderful on soaps. She's a Cassadine, it's in her DNA ...AND... the actress can pull it off. I love all the "Bad Seed" mentions because she sure has the makings for it. Couple that with Aiden's sweet nature and face and it's a great combo. When Lulu talked to Liz at GH and they didn't figure out who was bullying who --that was also great. Lulu's going to have a heart attack when she finds out it's her nephew that Char has been dragging!
Ryan, Ryan, Ryan. Ava, Ava, Ava...*sigh* a match made in.. well.. the "underworld". This part lets both JL and MW shine. Just them being together in a room is chilling--and thrilling. She's feeding off his praise and he's feeding off her..well... darkest impulses. What more could you want? Giving her those pills and having her act so fast to drug Sasha was brilliant. She didn't think twice. That's why her character is so awesome. You just know that side lurks below the surface. I'm not sure how this will play out? We know she sends Sasha to sleep and somehow gets Griffin up there--then what? Hmmm... See? the best part for me is wanting to see how it unfolds. That's good soap.
I'm in FULL SUPPORT of a K-9 on the show!!! This is perfection. I'm not sure if I like Willow with Chase Ford or Michael but-- the dog is winning.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: RoHo, a kid this age...gold.
WUBS FAVE SCENE OF THE WEEK: RoHo; Kin... gold.
FACE OF THE WEEK: There were a lot to choose from but I took this one as one of the best. Career Day was a big hit for me! "I NEED PROPS"??
PROP ONE OF THE WEEK: Giant Pumpkin: Michael brought in the most giant pumpkin ever--too bad PETER didn't bring it in!! LOL. Get It?? Maybe JaSam can grow some pumpkins to make donuts for next year.
PROP OF THE CENTURY: Oh well, there's a great PROP if I ever saw one!! You know they put that up JUST FOR THE WUBSY!
UM...??? OF THE WEEK: Ummm? No photo? That's the first thing I thought of!! Not even one of the box car?
WEIRD OF THE WEEK: The Sonny Fantasy Show!! Was a good change of pace for me if only to see the actors do something different. Sonny in a puffy coat, flannel shirt and jeans?? HAHAHAA... worth it.
NEXT WEEK: JaSam watch the parade and eat...PUMPKIN DONUTS!! Don't get all excited!
This seems like a very long blog because this week had a lot going on. I know I'm snarkier and more fun when I'm NOT happy with the show but can't have that all the time! LOL. I hope this week is better for me than last in the health department. GH will be new Monday-Wed. No new shows. Thursday will be a re-air of Sonny and Carly's first Thanksgiving in 2000 and Friday is football.
Is Charlotte a good seed or a bad seed? Let's ask ELQ!! ahahahaa.
