MISSION (ALMOST) IMPOSSIBLE
Good morning, Loved Ones.
Oh, if only you knew just how much you were loved!
I could barely get through watching Tuesday’s GH, much less wanting to talk about it! *yawn* But for you guys, anything. 🙂
Is it me, or are the same things being said over and over, day after day, by the same people? If I hear Heather say one more time that she is “going to call Samantha”, I may just need a stay at Ferncliff myself! That phrase is her new “Let’s grab a BLT!” and it’s driving me just as crazy! HEATHER! JUST CALL SAMANTHA ALREADY AND TELL HER, DAMMIT! Put us all out of our misery!
I have to say that I miss Bob Guza so much, that today, I caught myself doodling his name on my HOUSEHOLD BUDGET notebook. And yes, there were hearts all around his name, too! WHY? Because I just miss someone at the helm that knows and loves my GH as much as I do! I also miss stories actually having some kind of rhythm, where they would move along, and you could tune back in after a few days of being away and feel like you missed something. I tell you that I didn’t watch the whole week we were on vacation, and when I got back, it was as if not a day had gone by. I mean, it’s really now wonder – how often do we even see characters other than Todd and Heather? Where the hell is Anna? And did Monica start attending every convention in America again? Did she forget that she gave Jason sage advice about the baby Sam was carrying? Does she even know the baby was born? That it “died”?
I mean, really! This is just ridiculous! Meanwhile, we are getting more people on set to suck up precious time that could be going towards reestablishing the Quartermaines, or any other part of this show’s history! Just yesterday I reminded all of you that the purpose of Bella Mafia was to find The Beauty Of GH daily. Well, today, I had a moment of sheer panic while watching the show, and realized, “Oh, CRAP! I may have just set myself up for MISSION IMPOSSIBLE!” How can I continue to deliver on that promise I made when the writing continues to be like what it was today?
Thankfully, Alexis and Sam had a few nice moments of bonding and mutual love before Alexis collapsed, and I was able to downgrade the panic level to MISSION (ALMOST) IMPOSSIBLE. I was also able to deem those scenes The Beauty of GH for today.
But it shouldn’t be this hard all the time.
- Why am I trying so desperately to understand what the hell is going on between Jerry and Ewan? Someone spill the connection already, and for the love of all that is holy to GH’s survival, someone please just explain the vials and the danger they pose! Otherwise, Jerry should be stood in front of a firing squad for what he’s done to his niece, who is still on anti-rejection meds for the kidney transplant she received! Does anyone in that writing room have a morsel of decency? Do they not realize that just about everyone watching has been affected by the process of organ donation, and that watching Jerry act as though it’s nothing of consequence for Joss is disturbing?
- And while I am happy for the Lante fans, especially my favorite Lante fan in the world – a cutie pie from Boston, I find it so inexcusably insensitive to the many JaSam fans to have the show rub Lante rubbing up on their baby together on the same days that Jason and Sam, who’ve waited eight years to share a baby, are talking divorce and the (supposed) death of their own baby. It truly feels surreal that the writers would think it prudent to remind us all of what a massive mess they made on our show when they arrived! Why would you want to keep reminding us of how they could have had it play out for their Number One Couple on the news that they were expecting? I find that with every scene of Lante and their baby bonding, I rue the day Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini became household names for GHers. Ugh.
- Did Patrick get released? Has he seen Emma? And now that Joss is this big girl who is capable of sleepwalking into her yard in the middle of the night, will Emma be a tween needing to have a talk about the same drugs Patrick was abusing? I feel as though I never know what to expect when I turn GH on anymore, and while that’s great for a soap once in a while, it kinda takes the fun out if when it becomes the norm. There is certainly a comfort in knowing what to expect from our beloved daytime characters, at least some of the time.
If so, I am hoping that you will use your voice to keep communicating to TPTB about your feelings regarding our GH. Let them know what’s working for you, and *cough, cough* what most definitely is NOT.
I shall continue to provide you all with what I find to be The Beauty of GH as often as I can, but truly, the only consistent beauty I know of right now is all of you – trying to hang in there for our beloved soap.
I know, I know. It’s most definitely MISSION (ALMOST) IMPOSSIBLE.
Together, we shall persevere. (Right?)
If you see Bob Guza, or Charles Pratt, tell them I’m looking for them (desperately!)
