  1. S05.E10: Girls on the Side

    IKR? It made absolutely no sense (other than as a plot advancement device). Caitlin and Josh are friends, and I think she's trying to get him and Liza back together? I kind of enjoyed his shared distaste for Caitlin and her prof boyfriend.

    Are the eps being preempted or are they reruns?

    I had to laugh that Carly said Elizabeth looked at Cameron as a reflection of herself, as if Carly sees her children as separate individuals who live their own lives. "Sometimes I go in the wrong room because I like to snoop." I don't think Carly has ever said anything as honest as that. In the Ava vs. Lauren fight, I'm Team No One. Neither has the upper hand here. LOL at Sonny's "Mike's room" sign. He couldn't have printed it out in Comic Sans? Ugh, Kristina's back. I don't care what's going on with her.

    Scott has been a buffoon for a long, long time. He's always been something of a blusterer, but KS has really leaned into that.

    What is Frank supposed to say? "Wes Ramsey's performance was very acceptable, especially in those repetitive cabin scenes." This is no different from saying everyone is getting a big story come fall. It's same dumb spinning.

    Tony Geary helped put GH on the map. (The lack of credit that GF—or any of the women—gets is gross, and a separate issue.) MB/Sonny? Not so much. Sonny evolved into the male lead, but a lot of that was by default because of TG's increasing absences. TG changed how soaps are seen. MB didn't do that at all.

    Sneaking around at first was because they were in the bubble, and I was okay with that. But now it's gross that Charles wants to keep things under wraps because it might affect a business deal. If a relationship has to stay secret, there's something wrong.

    His spinning is so lame. He loves all the actors, it's sad when they leave, big stories on the horizon for everyone. Zzz. He says that every time.

    I'm all for Ava being angry at Griffin and Lauren for sleeping together, but a little historical perspective wouldn't be amiss. Also, trying to torpedo Griffin's career isn't going to serve Ava well in future relationships. Who wants to get involved with someone who's going to go scorched earth if things go south? What?! Oh. HELL. NO. Thank God I no longer watch because, with crap like this, I would have stroked out in rage repeatedly by now. Unfortunately, Monica did apologize. Carly's magnanimous response? "If you're big enough to apologize, I'm big enough to accept." Carly is thinking of herself as a peacemaker with Monica, because if Nelle taught her anything, it's holding a grudge can "poison you from the inside." It's so ludicrous to watch Carly think she's on the high ground here. In the list of people Michael has lost, he was allowed to mention AJ—first!—so small bright spot.

    I know. What if Diana hadn't brought an Italian dish, would Enzo's mom still have ragged on her? It's so stupid. I don't like how Enzo's mom was the worst kind of stereotype, either. Next time: Martha Plimpton! I love her, and her character was great.

    Which is a corollary to a current relationship needing to be the only worthwhile relationship someone has ever had. Soaps are supposed to be all about history! You shouldn't have to trash it to make the present-day stories work. Gah. Yes, poor Gentle Farmer SERIAL KILLER Franco being yelled at by a teenager. FFS. This fakakta show.
  13. S02.E10 We'll Always Have Paris

    She doesn't. Kat and Sutton contributed miles so that Jane could get to Paris. Not that money is dealt with all that realistically to begin with, but it's been pretty well established that Kat is the only one with any sort of financial cushion, i.e., her parents can bail her out if necessary.
  14. Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Money is very plot-pointy, especially where Elizabeth is concerned, but I'm not sure we're supposed to take it literally that she doesn't have enough to support her kids. I thought it was more about teaching the value of wanting something and having to work to pay for it. As she said, that's the way their family operates. It doesn't have to mean they don't actually have the money. If she handed the kids everything they wanted, they'd be...Spencer, and one of him is already one too many. Mileage will vary on this, I know.

    I also liked how Elizabeth told Cam that he had a number of perfectly serviceable earbuds, and he whined, "They're from 2015! It's so embarrassing!" That was very realistic. Frankly, I think those Apple wireless buds look ridiculous, but I'm not a 15-year-old. Joss's "IRL sucks" reply to Cam was alternately hilarious and exasperating. It was typical teen, again, but to come from her was a bit much. I wish the teens had a better, more interesting story. Why can't they be messing around on a computer and accidentally hack into some top secret plans for someone to take over Port Charles? Or they start their own business or something? This "love" triangle is deeply stupid and even more deeply boring. All three of them are so bland.
