You guys will never believe
this but GH has finally done it. This is big breaking news and I know
you all will be shocked. I have left General Hospital. Thatís right
kiddies, I am taking a break from this show. We have all been
frustrated. Then I watched Ric turn on Alexis, learned Reese was not
only an Agent, but also a child psychologist and a lawyer, found out
Maxie was recast and the straw that broke this camelís back was a
Felicia Scorpio-Jones recast. I heard this early yesterday morning
and I snapped. How can someone else besides Kristina Wagner be
Felicia? This isnít even actor loyalty, were that the case I would
have left with Brenda. The reports I saw claim Kristina walked when
her request to be put back on contract was refused. I donít blame
her.. I realized I could not watch a show that has absolutely no
respect for what the fans want. TIIC puts forth any storyline that we
hate. If we hate it it, it will happen. If we love a character, they
will die or runaway, but if we hate them they will become front
burner. It isnít that TPTB are stupid it is just a slap in the face.
The bottom line is they DO NOT CARE. Why should they? They just won
an Emmy. They look at me and say fuck you and I, for one can no
longer be a part of. No one talks to me that way.
I went home for lunch
yesterday and I reset my VCR and I recorded One Life to Live. I went
home last night (Monday) and I watched and I enjoyed. This is not my
first foray in Llanview so some of the characters I already knew.
Other characters were brand new. What I noticed first though was that
the women were not being degraded at every turn. They were
respected. Jessica, Nora, Vicky, Evangeline, no man ran around
yelling at them or smacking them or belittling them. Yeah so what?
Noraís current husband is having an affair ďgaspĒ with another man.
This stuff is juicy. (Donít blame me if I am a little off, I am still
learning what is going on. I apologize in advance if I get anything
I felt like that childhood
show ďRomper Room.Ē I saw Vicki and Bo, and Nora and RJ. It was like
visiting old friends. Bo has a son now and his son was actually
respectful. Both Bo and Nora actually talked to Matthew (the son)
instead of talking at him or about him like he was not even there.
Nora and RJ are still
friends. That shocked me because I recall they had a very rocky past
and I still have to figure out why Antonio and RJ are fighting for
custody of the same child, but Iíll get there.
On first take, I believe Bree
Williamson portrays a decent Jessica. I was prepared to see her and
only think of Erin, but after being away so long I found her
believable. I am actually looking forward to seeing where she is at
and learn more about her alter ego, Tess.
I heard rumors that Carlo
Hesser and Alex Olanov will be returning and if memory serves me right
that always spells fun and hijinx.
Michael Easton was a sexy
vampire on Port Charles and he is still sexy as a cop. The man is not
traditionally good looking, but in my opinion he oozes sex appeal.
Hey, he isnít for everyone but I sure enjoyed him on my screen, paired
up with Bo. And that brings me to the police department. It didnít
look corrupt. I could be way off but it actually looked like they
were going to do some good. John and Bo and hottie Rex were all
working towards a common goal and the guy they were after might
actually be guilty. What a change.
I didnít hit the fast forward
button. I am watching something through virgin eyes and it is fun. I
have some hot guys to look at which is always a plus and I think this
may just become a good relationship.
I cannot wait to see Dorian
and David as I remember Davidís first time around. I want to check
out the new face of Todd and Iíll even be nice to Blair for a little
while. Things are fun when they are new and fresh. Iíll be back with
more. I recommend everyone try this because a fresh perspective is
extremely refreshing to a frustrated mind.
