Hello again, my Lovelies!
*smooches all around*
You know, I really do try to keep my GH ranting down to a minimum - really, I DO! Sometimes they just make it so hard for me to resist though!! And, it would appear, I am not the only one who feels the need to rant. The incomparable Ms. Reign of Terror over at Soaps.com let off with (what I believe is) an
the other day and has given me permission to share it with you, my
lovely, loyal readers. I must say, I couldn't have put it any better
myself, so here it is, from Reign's own mouth...um... fingers...:
The State of GH, according to Reign:
First off, I am not a fan of Leyla or Robin. BUT THANK GOODNESS
those 2 finally came to their senses!!!!!!
***Ok, now onto Sam...
CC: Seriously... How much lower are
they going to allow Sam to sink? She has whined (in the past) about
having no one to talk to and no one to turn to for support... Hello?!
You have a mother who desperately WANTS to be there for you. Like
Reign said, you have two beautiful little sisters who would LOVE to
have their big-sister's attention. It might even be GOOD for you to
spend time with THOSE children - get some perspective. Maybe come to
the sudden realization that one ought NOT to use children as a means
of revenge. Also, as pretty as Lucky and Sam are together, the two of
them would be horrible as a couple. They bring out the absolute worst
tendencies in one another, both are needy and waaay to insecure to
ever be capable of giving what the other needs.
CC: Hold your ground, Katie! Don't
give in to the power of the dimples; it will be your undoing! And,
may I add? Go one step further... GET AS FAR AWAY FROM SONNY AS YOU
CAN!!! Failing that? You're going to have to sacrifice control over
your own life. I admire the spunk and grit, but you really don't have
a CLUE about what it is you're getting into by being in Sonny's orbit;
not to mention his bed. He's right - you WILL be a target. You will
not be safe; living as you had previously done before falling under
his spell again. You are a smart business woman, but you are
completely clueless about what it means to live in the mobular world.
So... either give up Sonny completely, or give up the control you've
always had over your own daily life. Sad as it is? You really can't
have both. I know you hate Carly, but you really should heed her
advice (however caustic it may be). She really does know what it's
like to lose yourself in Sonny and suffer the consequences of living
in his world.
CC: Amen and pass the salt!
Although, I think she was on the cusp of just letting the rest of the
world know the Jake-truth, since so many already know. She's admitted
that she really DOES want to be with Jason - to both him and Lucky -
but dayum... the realities of life in mobular world just keeps
smacking her (and Jason) in the face... *sigh* Still, it's high time
for her to kick Lucky in the... Lucky Charms... and send him packing.
Time for her to either bite the bullet and BE with Jason, or else
declare her complete and total independence and raise those little
chrubs all by her onesie.
CC: I'm with Reign on this! It is WAAAAY past time for Jason (and Sonny, too) to get out of the mob. WAAAY past time for Guza to stop glamorizing the mob, too! Yes, I know the realities of how hard it is to walk away from mobular world, but come ON! This is a soap, folks! Unbelievable things happen ALL THE TIME in soapworld!! With a little imagination and creativity, I'm sure TPTB could come up with some way to get Jason and Sonny out of the mob for good! They don't have to be in the mob to be front and center. Jason doesn't have to be a hitman to be the town hero. Sonny doesn't have to be the Godfather to be a rich, powerful man. It can be done! Seriously!
Ok, now I'm feeling better.
Again I say unto thee, Reign of Terror... BRAVO!!!! (You RAWK!) I know *I* felt better after reading that! And, might I add, I don't think we use the term "keester" nearly enough. We should change that! Moving onto other things now...
GEORGIE: Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! Why, why, WHY are they killing her off? Talk about wasted potential! Lindze Leatherman is a fabulous little actress and they have been wasting her for quite some time now. She can do meaty, she can do funny, she can do most anything, so why aren't they holding onto her?!
COOPER: Seems like they plan on wasting all the potential with this guy, too. I don't get it. Why are they throwing away such potential?
MONICA: ZOMG!!! Monica was rocking her scenes, wasn't she? She may have been off the mark in blaming Jason, but based on the little info she had, it's so easy to understand WHY she would blame him. Also, she was DEAD BANG ON in everything she said to Sonny when she was ripping him a new one. Even Sonny couldn't deny it. That said? I really hope they don't go through with the rumors about her supporting LUCKY in the upcoming custody battle.
LULU: *eyeroll* You know, I really love that they've made Carly and Lulu close. For far too long TPTB neglected the Spencer aspect of Carly's persona. Having Carly step up and be the motherish figure in Lulu's life was a good move, BUT... it is NOT necessary to turn Lulu into a perfect clone of her. We have all we can handle with one Carly, we do not need another. We DO however, need a Lulu - who is her own person. A perfect little blend of Luke and Laura, not a chip off of Carly's block. Fix it. kthanxbye.
MICHAEL, THE MOB KINGPIN IN TRAINING: *shudder* Please... get this boy some help. NOW! And, note to TPTB? It's not cute, it's not funny, it's not RIGHT to see little Michael calling for mobular retribution on whomever killed Letitia and Emily. It's not right that Michael even knows about stuff like that. Truly. Stop this... now!
BOBBIE, MIKE, EDWARD, LESLIE: We can't get enough of these people. Use them more please.
DR. LEO JULIAN: More, more, MORE please? Yeah, he's young, he's cocky and self-assured, but dayum if he isn't downright level-headed about the important stuff! LOVED it when he was telling Patrick to grow up! HEEEEE!
Where's Alan? I think Tracy could use him right about now. I know *I* sure miss his ghostly presence.
Love that we got another girl's night out, but where the frell are Diane and Kate? They would have been a wonderful addition to that scene at Jake's! I'm still calling for a girls night out with Kate, Diane, Alexis and Tracy. THAT? Would be BIG fun! Speaking of Diane... it's been far too long since we've even seen her! WE WANT DIANE BACK!!!!
I'll leave you all on that note, my lovelies. The bar is open and the drinks are on me! Until next time...
