Have a Difference of Opinion! Now THATíS a Shocker!
quiet sure has its advantages. I havenít read one interestingly spiteful
thing about me anywhere lately. Or maybe itís there and simply went
over my head? Aw, who gives a flying leap. Whatís more important is that
when Iím quiet, the others at EOS stand up, take control of the Ďfloorí
and speak like theyíve never spoken before. Okay, yeah, thatís a bit over
the top; they stand up and speak all the time. I just wrote that purely
for effect. It didnít work, but tough. Iím leaving it anyway because Iím
tired of backspacing on this darn paragraph already!
What Iím trying
to say isÖ you have done well without my typically negative GH columns
because everyone else has done a fine job of providing that commentary.
Except Kathy, who wasnít necessarily her
be-all-live-all-and-encourage-all-Positive, recently, but she
certainly wasnít the winner of the negativity award this past week or so.
Iím thinkingí that went to Ms. Sherry for her dazzling column of angst
toward GH!!! A good column it was. And most of the time I find myself
agreeing, usually whole-heartedly, with Sherry. But alas, not this time.
enjoying GH these days. What I get to see of it, that is. This is the
first time in a long, long time (since Carly Ďdiedí, if my memory is
correct) that Iíve actually missed it and thought, ďGee, I sure wish I
could tape this darn show because I want to see whatís happening.Ē Yeah, I
have SoapNet but itís on at 10 PM every night and Iím asleep by then!
Want to know
what I like about GH? Huh, even if you donít, Iím going to tell you. Maybe
it will change your mind if youíre on the other sideÖmaybe it wonít but it
doesnít matter. Itís my opinion and thatís why I get to write this column!
Hereís my list
Jax and Courtney:
Was it Dayna that mentioned the teeth on that woman? Whoever it was is
right. Does she get her teeth bleached daily? They pop out of the screen
and blind me when she smiles! Pearly whites aside, I enjoy the banter, I
enjoy the chemistry and itís nice to see Courtney not following Jason
and ass-kicking her days away. As for Jax, someone Iíve truly despised,
I like that heís not angry and bitter and that heís back to being
somewhat flirtatious and charming again. Is it another take on a similar
story? Sure. But we have to remember this is a soap and there are only
so many storylines to be had. Sure, I talk a good talk and I brag that
if I were writing the soaps theyíd be new and fresh, but the truth is,
probably not. You can only do so much with what youíve got.
Jason and Sam:
No, Iíve not necessarily fallen for the ĎSam is really a good personí
thing but itís better than seeing her dressed in black, boobs hangingí
out, 24/7! Sheís developing a personality and I can finally see that she
is a person instead of a Brenda wannabe dropped into out TVís to make us
remember the past. I saw absolutely no reason for the relationship
between Sam and SonnyÖit happened too fast and her personality changed
too drastically for it to be even remotely real. It was pushed on me and
fake and the chemistry wasnít there. It wasnít there with Jax either.
(Notice how those ďthe next super coupleĒ commercials disappeared almost
immediately?) BUTÖwith that being said, Sam and Jason have comical
chemistry and real, genuine chemistry and Iím enjoying them. Anyone that
can make Jason have an expression works for me. Yeah, Iíd like to see
him with Carly but thatís just not going to happen so Iíll take Sam for
the time being. Iíve given up on Liz and thatís okay since sheís been
re-introduced as the new AmyÖeven making her a nurse to help with the
concept. So itís Jason and Sam for me. Wouldnít it be funny if little
Lila turned out to be a true Quartermaine after all? Now that would be a
good storyline! Lotís of back story and lots of reason for the break up
of the main super couple on GH since Luke and Laura! (Yes, Iím talking
about Sonny and Jason!)
I love this woman. She speaks class when she walks in a room. When Frons
(or was it Guza, I canít remember.) said she was matronly I about peeíd
my pants. The woman has sex appeal written all over her. She is a
fashion statement and I wish Iíd not colored my hair this horrible brown
color because in looking at some pics, it was the same color as hers and
Iíve always loved her hair (except during the Colton days because then
it was just fugly!) Okay, so her storyline is kind of silly but itís
fun and light hearted and it gives a reason for her to be on the show,
along with all those missing Quartermaines and the ever-wonderful Alice!
More Felicia is a good thing. Now, throw her back in the sack with Mac
(that was NOT meant to rhyme, honest!) and take the guyís shirt off
(terrible fire scars and all, Iím sure!!! NOT!) and THEN WEíVE GOT A
GREAT STORY! ďreunited and it feels so good! Reunited and itís
understood!ÖĒ I love those two and hope we see more of them in the
No Sonny and Carly:
Need I say more?
Carly looking for her
I cracked up when she went to the hospital and in the middle of the
floor asked Bobbie to help her find her dad. Didnít pull her aside,
didnít take her some place private. Simply a total Carly move; itís all
about her and thatís whatís important. And the look on her face when
Bobby told her to drop it? Carly acted as though she would but her face
said otherwise. Normally Iím not a huge TB fan. I like her and I think
she does well as the character, but after all the screen time of all the
same characters, it gets old. But when she interacts with other members
of the cast I enjoy it and Iím glad to see it! When Bobby turns out to
be a liar, I wonder how her daughter will react? Remember, only Carly
can lie, no one else is allowed.
Ric and Alexis:
NG made a comment at her event that when she shuts up, she works more.
Iíd like to know what she did to shut up so I can educate my kids on it.
Theyíve been little chatterboxes since school started and frankly, itís
wearing me out. OH, wait. Wrong subject. Ric and Alexis are charming,
funny and a joy to watch. I wonder if the Ďrumorsí of them falling in
love will pan out? It would be interesting to see Alexis with someone
that gives her strength, like Ric seems to. I wonder if age will ever
play into this? We know Alexis isnít the youngest gal on the show but to
me, she seems a bit older than Ric. HmmÖjust a thought. I really like
the idea of Ric adopting Kristina, but wonder if thatís something Alexis
would do because itís a bit risky for her personality.
No more comments necessary.
Coleman is back:
No more comments necessary.
Luke and Skye are
No more comments necessary.
Heather is almost
Sheís only on a 6 month contract so Iím watching the calendar closely.
Itís not that I donít like the character, I just think itís all a bit
Nikolas and Emily are
I like them. I donít care what you say. Yeah, theyíre the Ďfairytaleí
couple but I like them. I like Tyler Christopher, even when he snots up
my tv. And I like Natalia Livingstonís Emily. I dare to say this, but I
like her better than Amber Tamblynís. Okay, shoot me now. Send me the
nasty emails, do whatever you have to, but I stand by my comment. I like
her. I like that she is glamorous, self-righteous and holds herself
above all. I like that she stands by her man and does whateverís
necessary to be with him. I like the romance and the commitment of their
relationship. And I certainly like looking at Tyler Christopher. Believe
me, all great acting aside, that man deserves the flipping emmy for his
unbelievable ability to make his nose all snotty during an emotional
scene. Not one other soap actor can cry like him! All joking aside, sure
the story is kind of corny, but the two are doing an excellent job and I
really like their acting. I think they do well with what theyíre given
and I just plain like them.
What a bummer that sheís leaving. Ok so they ďwonít confirm her exitĒ
but we know itís going to happen. At first she bugged the heck out of
me, but lately Iíve enjoyed her. Sheís funny and crazy and if they could
find a way to redeem her then I think sheís be a great addition to the
show. Go figure. They always get rid of the good ones.
Faith and Justus:
I must have missed how incredibly gorgeous this guy is until recently. I
like his charm and I like his ability to stand up for what is important
to him. And I like that heís a part of Faith being nice. I like Faith
nice or mean (except when she knocked off her grandmother. That was
plain heartless). I see a good couple here and if they take Faith into a
more, shall we say, friendly direction, this should be even more fun to
Did I mention thereís
not been a lot of Sonny on lately?
Alcazar isnít pining
away for Carly anymore:
So heís into the ever-annoying Lois. Beats the Carly deal. No, I donít
like Lois. I didnít when she was played by Rena Sofer and I still donít.
Itís not the actor, itís the character. But sheís much better to watch
with Alcazar than Carly. Only because we all know that Carly will never
end up with anyone but Sonny so whatís the point?
Okay, now letís
talk about a few other things.
everyone is pretty unhappy with this murder-mystery deal. I am too. Itís
silly, but it brings on characters I miss. Besides, itís just a means to
an end, only for the sake of grabbing onto those NBC viewers. Which
reminds meÖtoday I heard an ad for a show, not Passions, I donít think,
but one on that network (I donít know anything about the other networks so
I donít know what channel itís on). The ad talked about a woman getting
married and being impregnated by her Ĺ brother. That, in my opinion, is
taking things way too far. Itís just sick and wrong. I wouldnít watch
anything like that so if they think that ad is going to gain viewers, Iíve
got to think theyíre dead wrong.
I apologize if
this isnít really a column. Itís more of a generalized thought session
typed out on my computer. Iíve been busy moving, unpacking, organizing,
working, working out and getting my kids homework done. But I couldnít
help but pass up the chance to say that basically Iím enjoying GH and
having fun with some of the storylines!
Have a great
