Ciao il mio darlings!
My lovies, have you seen what Katrina is doing this month? Everyone who donates to Eye on Soaps' expense fund receives a raffle ticket for every $10 they donate ($50 = 5 tickets, $30 - 3 tickets, etc) and on October 8th, a drawing will be held from those tickets and the winner will receive an excellent book called Two-Faced, Confessions of a Soap Opera Make-up Artist! My readers are always so generous about kicking in every month to allow me to come to you each week and write my heart out but this time, there's something even more in it for you than my undying love and affection! Now's the time!!! I'm asking you to contribute to EOS for this month to keep us on the net and me on your computer monitor screen! If you love Sage as I so love you, then please kick a few bucks our way to do your part to keep us around! Know Sage, Know Peace; No Sage, No Peace.
This is the week that we need to get those
donations in! Mine has already been sent. I won't ask of you what I
don't do myself! You may contribute by credit card or your PayPal
account by clicking on the button below:
or you can click here for other options like checks, money orders, etc.
Eye on Soaps survives as a direct result of the talents of our wonderful writers here (and we currently have one of the best writing staffs in the history of the site!) and the support of our readers; people just like you who click here each day or week to see what's new for them to enjoy. If you have not contributed in a while, now's the time to do it.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled Sage...
(What? You didn't donate yet? *boot
to da butt, evah so gently*
I'm counting on you, Babes! Don't let Sage down!)
Since there is no AMC commentary by Sage unless tremendous sport is made of Ryan Lavery in some way, here is this week's offering.
Beyond how I amuse myself with this show, all I have to say in regard to it is:
OLTL SPOILER COMMENTARY
Oh girl, she gets on my nerves too. That mouth just gets all kinds of out of control, contorting and bitching and flailing about while her eyes never change is all pretty scary to me. I'm thinking, "Just shut...up...please...before you make an even bigger, fatter ass of yourself."
Is it from King Tut, who he also secretly lusts after and to whom he was married in another programmed life?
And may I just say that I LOVE the notion that Carlo was behind all of this. Christopher Thom's performances have just been perfection and have reminded me of how much I adore him. Although I know it's a temp return, I'm holding out for a more permanent presence. If only...
Ha!~ Cris' or John's?
I'll bet Jen is glad to hear that! She'd make a funky zombie.
um, for WHAT?
*blink*blink* Uh... OK. Anger Management Boy is back into full time parenting and only pummeling people on the side, I guess?
No doubt! I'm waiting for the sobbing, "YOU CAN'T TAKE MY DAUGHTER!" scene.
Damn. There went my "the only good thing about this..." line. I hoped A would give her the boot once he got his kiddo back.
Sadly, we're back to horseshoes and hand grenades. Evidently, she lives. >:<
Can we get a psychiatrist in there too? Did the surgeons who operated on AMC's Jonathan throw the brain tumor out the window and into Nora's ear or something?
Wow. She screamed herself to death. Diggin' it.
The operation was a success, but the patient died?
It's easy to apologize to comatose people, but when they are in public screaming at you until your hair blows back and your face melts, apologize seem a bit trite.
At least they show some form of realism.
How terrified were we all that Marcie would not write dumb preachy crap in her laptop any more? Let me count the frickin ways...
Little does she realize with whom she is dealing here.
You know, one problem OLTL has had for decades is that they drag out stories until no one really much cares any more. Let's just hear what the story is with Paige and Spencer and be done with it, already?
Oh yeah, bad Spencer for being testy about such things.
Well, admittedly, that's a real sticky mess.
But how long can you have the flu without someone thinking you're either pregnant or dying?
That should be one very interesting power play.
Once again, dragging out a story beyond the point of interest. It's a fine line, OLTL, a fine line.
Like he knows problems compared to the whole J/Tess thing.
or Margaret missing the boat after getting booted into the water?
and I'll bet it's not about the Lost Company of Melador!
And someone must truly start to wonder how he can be so sure.
Well, that comes cheap from what I've seen.
Because they don't seem to be very bright, really, when it comes down to it.
I just threw up in my mouth a little. I'll bet Duke did too when he was kissing Ginger.
I'm picturing a little barking, yappy dog here.
That's OK, Rex's shoulder is plenty warm.
Ha! More like "goose!"
GH SPOILER COMMENTARY
Here, I'll give Carly a hand with the strategic sickle placement process. I have an effigy of Emily that I've practiced killing about 5000 times.
It's an Emilysickle!
How dare he tell the truth that Frickin Lunatic Carly skewered Emily!
Well, it's about damned time.
God forbid she had to do that in her life.
The words "doing his job" come into my mind.
As long as he doesn't trip on his cape and fall on a sickle...
Cuffs... chains... six of one, half a dozen of the other...
"See, Carly, I promised I'd never, ever put you in Ferncliff... FERNCLIFF... this is ROSE LAWN... so technically, I'm not breaking a promise to you.
Manny should be the one avenging his parents for giving Javier the cool name and saddling him with "Manny."
Why am I picturing Bonzai, Shatzi and Ed from the Lion King here?
While "Glory, Glory, Hallelujah" plays in the background.
"Here, you're the muscle now. Go with God... I mean Sonny."
Unless he thinks they say "Mop" instead of "Mob." Meanwhile, he's back to his job of yanking AJ's crane around.
Well, not when you stay in the same town, dingbat."
Now THAT makes sense!
She should be better than ever if she's been there more than 4 minutes.
Because of course, it's all about HER.
Sucks to be the good guy when you're the bad guy, I guess.
Note to Javier, "Do NOT stop for Starbucks on the way to an execution."
One could say it's a whole continent away.
Always with the control issues... no guns, no mob, no Sonny... such a fuddy duddy.
And who can compete with Emily on a Stick?
I'll bet she has one hell of a time driving in the last nail when she pounds herself onto that cross.
And to anyone else who will listen EXCEPT the two potential fathers.
So did she tell them just to tell them since she has no interest in what they have to say?
Like either is in the mood for a party!
Especially when she can have two rich guys fighting over custody!
"No more babies for YOU, rich guy #1!"
And who wouldn't be? He hasn't left town for more than 5 minutes in 2 years but Luke blows out every few weeks!
Who wants a guy who has to wear a navigational unit to have a relationship?
They do just happen to find Mr. Spencer!
Because he is, by definition, the anti-hero's hero.
Next week, and beyond: October 12, cameras focus on the back of Kimberly McCullough’s Robin Scorpio, in Paris, France, a nurse greets the back as a doctor, final scene, fade to black… Robin celebrates her birthday solo, but manages to chat with her uncle Mac by phone before the call is cut short… Later this month, Sam locates Robin at a medical convention in New York City, and asks the good doctor to return to Port Charles for Jason, for Jason’s in big trouble medically, so Robin agrees… Courtney’s rebuff seems to work in Nikolas’ and Emily’s favor.
And there was peace, love and harmony throughout Port Charles.
Hope some makes it to you!
