  1. Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Anna never "banged Casey the Space Alien's earth twin." I mean, *I* thought he was cute, and I wouldn't have minded if Anna and Shep Casey has hooked up. But they didn't. Nor did she hook up with the actual alien himself. It was just Duke and Robert during her first stint on GH.

    I’m just disappointed this show isn’t going directly to “Kiki goes to HR.” Rather than make this a long, drawn out ordeal, show it like how it should be dealt with. How it would be dealt with in today’s age. The show shouldn’t be sending the message that a sexual harassment victim should legitimately be afraid of reporting completely inappropriate conduct. They should not be telling a story of a young woman NOT knowing when a line has been crossed, when it has been crossed as blatantly as it has here. They should not be telling a story of a young woman not reporting for fear of retaliation. No hospital — at least no hospital that doesn’t want a discrimination administrative complaint — is going to find against Kiki. Either her claim will be substantiated, or it won’t. If it isn’t, they’ll separate Dr. Letch from Kiki. If this is the third, fourth, fifth time Dr. Letch has been reported, it’ll be time for a big ol’ sit down. No alleged accuser is going to get railroaded. No alleged victim should be in fear of losing their job, etc. Report it. Have safeguards put in place. Bing, bam, done.

    Why do Liz and Franco sleep in the same bed as Lulu and Dante? I mean, right? Are the two couples down on their luck, and sharing an apartment — one couple lives there in the day and other the night? Or is the show’s budget just that cheap?

    As far as a 6-year-old Emma could have traveled when she wandered away from Kelly's that one time. I think they were putting up barriers 10 miles outside the city for that.

    Wait, Homey say what about someone — who isn’t 14 (or 21 and in arrested development) — reading The Fountainhead?!!!!! This? Explains SO much. Just when I thought my opinion of LW couldn’t get any lower.

    Sure, put up the picture of Tristan and Maurice. That'll get me titillated. Because I didn't cut school back in 1988 to see who would get to Anna first, Robert or Duke (the answer was Robert). Because I didn't tape gravelly reception that semester in 1991 just so I could at least hear what was happening with Anna and Robert. Because I didn't root -- for years -- and religiously watch this d@mn show just to see Anna and Robert. Nope. None of that happened. Idiots. Catering to their own freakin' egos. And not having one scintilla of understanding as to what their 18-162-yr old (sorry, but daytime shows skew older, no matter how much TPTB salivate over the potential younger viewers) mainly female audience wants. So not here for the boys' club. So not here for Robert to be in Sonny's orbit. So not here for the crumbs. Catch ya on the flip side, RXS.

    I’m catching up on Hulu, so I’m a bit behind. At least x-ray the darn thing. Did this storyline already end? Shhh, don’t spoil it for me. ;)

    Crap, to leave up or edit with a n/m? I’ll just say that I don’t think LW is malevolent. Or mean-spirited. But she has a toddler’s sense of self and others. And that’s not to say she’s simple minded. She’s not. No brainiac, either, but not dumb as a door post dumb. But she has absolutely no sense that the world does not revolve around her. And not in a grandiose way but in a sincere “what? You’re not interested in what happened to me during spring break of 1992? That’s not riveting to you?” There are a couple types of people whom we all sit next to on planes. There’s me, who’d prefer to pretend that you don’t exist and I’d prefer it if you’d pretend that I don’t exist, either. Then there are the people who chat you up. And of those, there are two subgroups. There’s subgroup A, where they ask you questions about yourself and engage in a back and forth. And there’s subgroup B, who seizes on this opportunity, and they truly believe, they are bringing entertainment to your world by talking about themselves wholly and completely. Because if they are the most fascinating person to themselves, they can’t conceive why you wouldn’t think they are the most fascinating person on the planet as well.

    I had literally blocked that out, thank you very much. I'm torn with watching. On the one hand, Anna and Faison. On the other ... what's this about Laura's boyfriend playing Anna's son? Insert Clue "flames. flames on the side of my head" gif. You know, someone message or tweet me when they: 1) re-cast Laura's panties paramour; and 2) reveal that it's actually Tanker Baby(TM) after all.
  13. I’m more concerned that Lulu is only 4 feet tall. Seriously. Look at that scale. Oh, before the public would instantly call out bad photoshopping.

    It’s so going to fucking be Anna. Because that’s how my life goes, fanbase-wise. Actually, this is how it’s going to go: The plan right now is that it’ll be tanker baby (aka the baby Robert and Anna had conceived prior to her January of 1992 kidnapping by Faison. Robert, Anna, and Faison all blew up on a tanker, supposedly. But no bodies recovered. We hardcore RNA fans believe that Anna was pregnant at the time of the tanker explosion. Hence, tanker baby). So, the plan right now is that it’ll be Tanker Baby in the end. But, we’re forced to go through a whole bunch of plot twists beforehand. The planned reveals will occur as follows: 1) Faison says kid is Anna’s. 2) Anna will be convinced she willingly slept with Faison. 3) Faison will go along with that. And then, FINAL REVEAL 4) Faison has been deluding Anna (and perhaps himself), and it’s really tanker baby (aka Robert’s, after all). Except, part 4 of the plan will never be executed. So, we’ll be stuck with a hurried, last minute rewrite where the baby, after all, is in fact Anna’s and Faison’s. Until it become Dr. O’s and Faison’s. Because this show refuses to give me anything good.

    Oh Genie, never quit. I mean never quit quitting all the time and throwing off storylines. And then coming back. And then quitting. Consistency is a viture, after all. I’m still miffed at how this show went from grade A+ entertainment, medium be damned, to middling less-than-average soap opera in a matter of, literally, episodes. I’m telling you, this show was near perfection in 1996. Guza — yes, that Guza — had set up a wonderfully interwoven, complex and compelling umbrella story that included close to 80% of the cast. It was SO good. Truly must see tv. And a large part of that was Genie’s performance. She, and everyone else, was bringing their A game. Even Maurice! And then Genie got pregnant and wanted an immediate break. And it was right at the same time Guza left due to Sunset Beach being picked up. And while Guza said he left a detailed outline as to how the storyline would play out, the showrunners instantly scrapped all of it and played wack-a-mole with Genie’s time schedule. And I’m parity queen, so I get that Tony had his outs and that Genie should have been entitled to them, too. But Tony would give them months’ notice so that they could work it out. Genie was more like “ummmmm, so how about 3 weeks in December, and then I want another month off for the holidays, and how about 73 minutes the third week of January. But I have to be done by 2:45. And then I’ll be back May-ish. Maybe. Toodles!” And the show in 1997 was unrecognizable dreck. YMMV. But really, it was.
