First off, no one is named Thursday. Who would do that to a child?
I tried to find some photos of people with drinks in their hand from Mac's Outback. I wanted to go old school and find something like that. Instead, as I was doing a search, this lovely, exquisite woman appeared and how could I resist?
Anna Lee was a gem. I am sure some of you know that she was one of the nuns in the Sound of Music movie. So respected and loved.
This brings me to my Question of the Day.
There really isnt a patriarch or matriarch on the show anymore. And by that I mean a senior member of the family that presides over the shenanigans of the group. I always loved David Lewis' diabolical side. He was as sweet as could be with Lila and put her on a pedestal and then behind the board room doors he was conniving and underhanded. John Ingle had a different take on the character. He was less business man and more family. But still, he was Edward Q. Both of them nailed the roles in different ways.
Most soaps have had a matriarch/patriarch on their show at one time. I remember on Loving there was the Aldans, Cabot and Isabella. And of course on Dallas we had Jock and Ellie Ewing.
In the comments, please mention your favorite patriarch/matriarch (either one or both) and what soap they were from. And do you think anyone on GH qualifies for that title now?
Based on sonya’s recap, I was compelled to watch yesterdays show. It was pretty good. Of course, I have issues so I am going to try to channel my inner Karen and make a few comments and observations.
My father died of dementia in 2014. There was a day close to the end where he told me and my brother that he was ready to go. GH doesnt always get it right, but they did with this storyline. And Max just nails it. Why can’t all their stories be this good?
Are we referring to the woman with Jason as “FakeJan”? If not, then could we? Those of you “of a certain age” will understand the reference.
I think ELQ stocks is a tired storyline. It has been done many times, and frankly, it does not work without Tracy. And where is Monica? (I know… COVID. I get it) I am intrigued tho. This will give Wally some more screen time and hopefully also Lynn. I hope this segways into something bigger with better storylines. Will this have a direct effect on the Nurse’s Ball?
NuBrooke looks a lot like Idina Menzel. Is it just me? Anyone else?
The makeup on Ingo is so wrong on many levels.
Is Nina still searching for her daughter? Oh, move on already.
Gee…. you think Nelle is going to kidnap Wiley? You think? You should see the shocked look on my face.
Man, I hope Mike has a twin brother.
Tad was fired. I am sure he wont be gone for long. He’s a fan favorite, no matter what soap he is on.
Carly was reserved. I have to say, I really like her when she is like that and not acting over the top.
Jason was… human.
Wednesday was a good show. Very soapy. Karen would have liked it if she wasn’t sitting on a beach somewhere. I’m glad I watched.
But now it is on to Thursday. You’ll be happy to know it is my last day filling in for Karen. Talk about Thursday’s show and welcome Karen back from her mini-vacation tomorrow.
