General Hospital: A
What?! A positive column you say? Unbelieveable! Carolyn doesnít do
positive. Sheís the queen of negativity. Right? Wrong. Iím miss happy;
happy to be alive; happy to be watching General Hospital and mostly, happy
for SoapNet! Iím most thankful for SoapNet because Iíve been so busy this
week Iíve barely had time to watch General Hospital. But what I did get to
watch was good. Real good!
Iím so excited at the thought of Carly and Sonny breaking up. Itís not
that Iím a total anti-Sonny and Carly fan, because I did like them for a
long, long time. Itís more that Carly needs to grow some of those
Ďkahunasí she once had back and start standing up for herself. And to do
that, she needs to be without Sonny. Besides, good soap operas are based
on relationships coming and going. There are few couples that ever truly
stay together. Luke and Laura divorced, so it can happen to anyone.
I like that theyíre taking Carly into the direction of her husbands mortal
enemy. What a play on drama. That, my friends, is good soap opera. I like
that she is conflicted and confused and doesnít know fantasy from reality.
Sheís lost in a world of what if, surrounded by fluffy clouds of dreams so
seemingly real she canít see any truth. Upon seeing her Ďhusbandí she
shows us angst and trepidation and when we see her with Lorenzo, she
lights up. Thatís good soap opera. I even like that the relationship she
had with Jason is lost to her and whatís better than a woman so confused
and disoriented sheís not sure she loves the children she gave birth to?
Love it! L O V E Love it!
I like that Sonnyís taken off the drab suits and is now wearing something
that makes him look hot. As much of a jerk that he is, I still think heís
attractive. Now if we could get Jason in something other than a tee shirt,
life might get even better!
I like that Zander is finally saying ďscrew youĒ to Emily. Itís about
time. I think itís great that Liz, in an action that, lets admit it here
folks, all woman want to do at times...sleep with someone else when the
man you love has hurt you unforgivably. Way to screw it all up Liz! Thatís
great soap opera. Now sheís going to be pregnant! What promise that
brings! Iím so excited to see how Zander, the infamous child-man, handles
that responsibility and what it does for the Em-Liz relationship, not to
mention the Liz-Ric relationship. And hopefully, if weíre lucky, that is,
weíll get a taste of Lucky feeling what he missed out on due to Hells
Iím excited to see that Courtney might take a turn on the dark side and
become interested in someone other than Jason. Brian isnít as odd as I
thought. Iím still not sure what it is about his face, but it is getting a
bit better looking. Any man in a uniform is a turn on to me though, so Iím
a bit biased.
Okay, Iím not interested in Jax and Sam and I donít like either character,
but at least weíve got Tracy back ad sheís got the cards and that will be
a whole lot of fun! And Luke and Skye? Gosh, I sure hope they donít make
them related. That would totally bum me out because theyíve got great
chemistry and the opportunities for them are limitless. When she fell on
top of him by the water, I was almost standing up and screaming ďGO FOR IT
LUKE! KISS HER!Ē Then I remembered they might be related and that made me
feel yucky. So letís just home the related idea goes away.
Friday, when Dillon (the next Jonathan Jackson, in my eyes) introduced
Tracy to Georgie and she said ďIs she pregnant?Ē I about peeíd in my
pants. Love Tracy! Welcome back! I love Dillon, I love Georgie and
bringing Tracy into the mix will add loads of laughter. Iím excited to see
his Thanksgiving special. I recently read an interview about him in either
SID or SOD and heís a trip. He said he was shy, but personally I canít
even begin to imagine that. And he said he didnít have a girlfriend but I
personally saw him leaving the hotel with a cute girl in his car...maybe
heís already given her his walking papers.
Sage. Sage. Sage. Iím a bit confused about the sudden switch, to an actor
weíve already had on screen in the past few weeks, but hey, weíll see what
happens. To think that a young girl can walk around a court house carrying
a gun in these times is a bit odd to me, but then again, Iím supposed to
suspend reality here at 3pm. Iím interested in seeing whatís going to
happen. Iím interested to see what Lorenzo is going to do with this little
girl. And whomever comes back into his life...which may be Sophia, adding
even more drama to the soap!
Okay, okay, even though Iím really liking General Hospital right now, I do
have a big problem with some of it. Please, somebody do something to
Lorenzoís hair! Itís HORRIBLE!
Have a great week. Enjoy General Hospital! I sure am!
