the week ending February 23, 2001
I’m not known for
brevity but this week’s commentary is short (for me) because I still haven’t
watched last Monday and Tuesday. I
was far more interested in the meltdown happening on OLTL than anything on GH
and it’s now Wednesday morning as a write this introductory paragraph and I
have yet to watch last weeks PC to see if Lucy is pregnant or not.
It’s all going to have to wait a little longer too because I’ve got a
shiny new computer with lots of new gadgets that is occupying my mind right now.
But enough about me….
The board meeting stole
scene of the week, however edited it
was. All of my Cassadines and a few
Quartermaines in one room – I was in dysfunctional family heaven.
Helena was as entertaining as usual insulting Stefan and Alexis all the
while wearing a devilish grin. Watch
your back Gia. Helena has
already been upgraded from Queen to Empress just for threatening Gia, if she
actually offs her (or Chloe) I’ll upgrade her to Goddess!
Poor Nik doesn’t know what kind of monster he’s just unleashed on Gia
and I’m not referring to li’l Nik!
Speaking of the frog
(because he’s certainly no prince these days), just because he got his cods
thumped, now Gia is the best choice for FOD?
It wasn’t too long ago he was quite enamored with little brother’s
girlfriend. His tirade to Laura
about picking Liz was inappropriate even if she is his mother.
He no longer has a job with Deception and I don’t believe Laura asked
for his opinion.
My new favorite wannabe
couple, Laura and Scotty, catching Fluke making out like teenagers was
uncomfortable at best. The only
thing that could have made it more unpleasant is if Mac had been there also.
Of course, it would have been twice as entertaining for me.
Scott called it though “welcher, home-wrecker, exhibitionist”.
Man, I’ve missed Scott.
Lucky and Maxie talking
about their parents “dating” was bizarre.
The term “dating” when applied to Luke seems wrong.
I can’t really see Luke picking up Flea, making small talk with the
girls, and returning her home at a decent hour.
Aside from the 1000 other reasons why this alleged relationship is
doomed, that is the reason it will never last.
Luke hasn’t even seen his daughter since returning to Port Charles,
he’ll never make appropriate step-father material and there is a small (very
small, infinitesimal even) part of me that still believes Flea will do what is
best for her children in the long run.
Zander & Emily
playing matchmaker was pre-empted on ABC. Peter
Jennings returned in the role of annoyingly condescending news anchor with bad hair and introduced a
new character into my daytime programming….Dubya who almost looked like a deer
caught in the headlights during that press conference but he wasn’t that
alert. Zander scored a fraction of a point for telling Alexis to
call Ned but he stepped way back into negative numbers for offering his $.02
that Ned was a fool for leaving her. For
the first time in a long time I was proud of Alexis when she told Zander to stay
out of her personal business, then I realized that she’s the one who invited
Zander INTO her personal business by moving him into her penthouse.
I always love Ned’s conversations with Emily and this was no exception.
Again, for the first time in a long time I was proud of Emily for
thinking of Ned instead of whining about Zander.
Nexis….owie, owie, ow, ow ouch! I
guess I’m going to have to stop calling them Nexis as they are no longer a
unified entity. That was difficult
to watch, the pain, the anguish…I loved every second (all 3 of them) of it. My heart flittered for a minute when Alexis asked him to
stay. Just as quickly as Ned shot her down I remembered that if Zander needed
his nose wiped or Sonny needed somebody to count coffee beans Alexis would have
tromped all over MyNed’s heart again to run to the aid of the town thugs.
On a positive note she did quit working long enough to go see the show
and she did want Ned there with her so maybe she’s coming around a bit.
This is me hoping, wishing and praying!
I must point out that all of the ritualistic breakup gestures have not
been completed yet. Alexis was
still wearing the ring, Ned didn’t leave his key and there was no sappy music
montage remembering the good times.
THOUGHTS AND SHALLOW OBSERVATIONS
Chloe was no where in
sight last week. YESSSS!
Praise be to SoapNet
without which I would not have been able to see Zander and Emily playing
matchmaker because the networks care not about daytime viewers and will
interrupt a soap for any reason. That
is the best damn $5.00 I spend every month!
Shouldn’t Emily have
her hair tied back or be wearing a cap while working at Kelly’s?
Also, she should lose the felonious boyfriend appendage.
He’s costing her tips.
Stefan’s latest hair
choice is making him look like Danny Zuko.
skills rival those of her mentor as do her temper tantrums.
She knew the deal going in and despite all of her blatant sucking up
Laura still chose Liz. I’m not feeling sorry for her now. Those are the breaks. Deal.
Jason. I don’t really have
a dog in that fight. I just plain don’t care who wins; however, I do think that
Lucky needs to watch Jacob Young’s anger management commercial. (tehehe!)
I’d be more interested if they were clay-mation (which is about the
“acting” speed of both anyway) and they met up on Celebrity Death Match.
Thank you for calling Sonny the coward that he is!
No matter the reasoning, sending someone else to do your dirty work is
cowardly. No wonder he never whacks anybody. In retrospect just before Sonny pulled that stunt last time
is the last time I had any use for Sonny.
You know you love her, suck it up, act like a man and - - go get her
