Yes, I'm back, and I hope you
all missed me. I want to apologize for my unexpected hiatus,
but my four-year-old daughter had contracted scarlet fever
last month, and ever since then, I have been battling the
virus and other sicknesses between my six-year-old, my
five-year-old, and my 21-month- old. Then my back went out 2
times for a week each time. Many of you have e-mailed me
wondering where I was, and when you found out, you were ALL so
wonderful and caring, and it made me love my job so much more.
Now to reward you, I have returned to deliver one hell of a
review. There's much to talk about, folks, so fasten your
seatbelts, and let's get to Llanview and Port Charles bashing.
I begin with General Hospital.
I don't know about you, but
Jax, Sonny, Brenda AND Jason are getting on my d**ned
(BIG shout out to my Mansion
Members, you all know what I'm talking about! Toni,
Sues..extra special shout out to you!!)
Jax, that brawny, blond,
Never have I seen such a
pathetic character with such a lack of morals as I've seen in
this impostor! Come on, ladies, hear me out. Here is a man,
who married Skye. He promised to love honor and cherish her.
He promised her that all of the tragedies that she'd suffered
in her lifetime would come to an end in his arms.
He assured her that she was his
love, his soul, his heart. Then..along comes the resurrected
Tattoo Princess, and his undying love is suddenly controlled
by a light switch. BRENDA now gets his undying love, his soul,
his protection, and Skye is the enemy.
Back when I first called Brenda
a rat, I received some flack for those of you who felt that
Ms. Barrett was a victim of Alcazar's deceit, and she needed
to be given a break. I was told that I was an unfeeling
monster, to paraphrase, for not sympathizing with the former
mob mistress' mental anguish she suffered
when she believed she was dying for so many years.
I did. I listened to your
points of view, I changed my perspective angle, and although I
still smelled a rat, I kept an open mind. And what happened?
SHE WENT AFTER JAX AND RUBBED
SKYE'S NOSE IN IT!!
Should she still be considered
the poor victim? EH? She broke up Skye's marriage, flashing
that, that, that...AGGRAVATING tattooed hiny in Jax's face
every chance she got. THEN....she tried to play the noble
person and "let" Jax go..MARRIES JASON, while
heading right back into the Save me, Sonny- Save me, Jax game.
She was a weasel from the
beginning! The sniveling little man- stealer!
And don't let me get started on
these GH men! Jason, although Sonny's chess pawn, had always
had an original code of honor. Although his line of work
wasn't anything to brag to your parents about, he kind of
stood in a class by himself. He was once a character that we
Now, I have added a crossbow to
my collection for him, too! He gave up on Robin..ok, Kimberly
McCullough left the show. But what happened to his undying
love for Liz, hm? And now, he's in love with Courtney. Is this
the thing that is going to prove to him that his sacrifice of
life for Sonny will NOT be returned???
I'm through with this sick
town, folks. Let's take a drive over to Llanview.
Jessica has FINALLY, FINALLY
sat down to eat that plate of Crow that has been piling up
since the day she attacked Natalie. While I must say that I
will miss Erin Torpey, and by no means is my character-bashing
directed at her, Gary Tomlin did a butcher job on Jessica.
Jen Rappaport...HA HA HA
She got what she deserved! She
was a twit from Day One, and she lost EVERYTHING as a result!
I got all warm and fuzzy when she confessed to Sam, but it
wasn't because I was impressed in any way by her so-called
redemption. She had done everything in her power to get what
she wanted, and she had no regard for who she destroyed in the
process. She was even willing to ruin the life of a child just
because she got her feelings hurt.
On the flipside of that..
Way to go, Al! Way to go, Roxy!
If there was ever a time to
praise someone's redemption, these two characters presented it
in the past thirty days. I personally nominated Nathaniel
Marsten for his performance in the episode entitled: "The
Day Al Told Jen to Buzz the Hell Off!"
His performance was
outstanding! He showed nothing but class, and his
character has been classy ever
since. My second most favorite moment was when he handed Viki
the airline tickets to meet her Jessica at the airport.
WOO-HOO! Kudos to you, writers!
The wrestling match with Mitch
Lawrence was definitely one for the box office! She connected
with a maternal instinct she didn't even know she had! You go,
girl! Kick the Devil's A$$!!
Poor, strong baby!
I am a little annoyed with the
writers for a few reasons. Number one, they have had Viki
begging for Jessica's approval, while they take Natalie for
granted. YES, Viki has proven and openly expressed her love
for Natalie, but is it me, or does Viki seem to automatically
assume that Natalie can handle EVERYTHING herself?
Yes, Nat is strong, but damn!
The girl has had to be strong all of her life unassisted.
Isn't it about time that SOMEONE put her first and STAY by her
side until ONE of her crises is over??
I mean, here she is, MARRIED to
the Devil's advocate. A monster clearly reputed for his
preying of women. He is after Jess, sure, but we all know that
he's Jessica's FATHER, so he won't be trying to rape her!
Jeez, Natalie needs the 24-hour protection, and she WANTS to
stay with Viki, so why the hell is Viki traipsing around after
snotty Jessica, only to be rejected when they meet?
Natalie and Cristian are in
PHYSICAL danger, Jessica is safe. Yes, emotional anguish is
just as bad, but she won't DIE from it!
Writers, WAKE UP! End this
storyline already! Stop trying to score points with long,
torturing plots, and get CREATIVE! Bringing Roscoe Borne back
was ingenious, now USE him without ticking us off!
Until next week, folks, you can
rally with me or bring your throwing tomatoes for me at:
