Heading Towards Sweeps
By Destiny P.
September 15, 2007

There are some days worth tuning into and other days you just fast-forward through it all. Apparently there is a new bad guy on the horizon as if the arrival of Trevor Lansing isn’t enough. We have as always a bad guy lurking in the shadows waiting to take down Sonny who is the all-powerful mobster. I suppose the writers are running out of ideas. I mean let's face it, every sweeps must involve Sonny, Jason, and Carly. I mean God forbid if it should just involve some of the other characters.

So Guza and company are bringing in some fancy names to try and lure in viewers. He is also promising the return of Noah/Anna/Robert. We’ll see how that goes since he does a good job at ruining various characters. So now we have our big baddie Zacchara or whatever his name is due to air around sweep time. We have a big rumor of Sonny and Ric’s mother heading to town and being played by Bea Arthur of Golden Girls fame.

Everyone seems to be preparing for the new baddie so they are all running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Sonny and Jason are preparing for battle. Carly and Jax are fretting over the safety of her boys. Trevor is in town causing trouble and apparently feeding the baddie all kinds of info while also trying to cause trouble for his ex-lover Kate who happens to be hooked on Sonny right now. Let's face it, every woman becomes dependant on Sonny, even those who first appear to be strong. Talk about a slap in the face to women. Jerry is back to acting all menacing especially with Sam who he is trying to force into seducing Trevor. I would really like an explanation on why Jerry is so dark and twisted this time around. I mean I love! Love! Sebastian Roché  who is portraying him and love the fact that Jerry is such an interesting character, but come on now. What’s his story and when am I going to get my Jerry/Alexis pairing. Right now he seems to be torturing Sam and at the same time eyeing her up, which nauseates me.

Nikolas has morphed into a psycho himself. They are saying it's because of Jerry and the poison storyline, but come on, let's face it. Nikolas is a Cassadine whose relatives, with the exception of Alexis, were all evil psychos. It must be in the Cassadine blood or something, because Sam seems to be well on her way to turning into an evil psycho as well. Alexis luckily has avoided this so-called curse but has no choice of being around those two.

Scrubs have ended their relationship for now, and I say good riddance. Robin wants to settle down and have a baby and who can blame her. She is what like 30 now and has been living with a terrible disease for many years now. Of course, she wants to settle down but Patrick is the complete opposite. Lately he has been acting like a major jerk, since the new little nurse Leyla arrived. Leyla seems to be just as cocky as he is and isn’t afraid of hitting on someone else’s boyfriend. I disliked the character the moment she stepped on screen. Now Patrick is flirting with her out in the open and humiliating Robin right in front of her. In my opinion, Robin had every right to be angry at finding those two sitting in the apartment looking cozy. If I had caught my boyfriend with some other girl acting all cozy and then he proceeds to humiliate me in front of her, I would have kicked his butt and ripped that chick’s hair out by the roots. Robin was smart to walk away, and if she is really smart, she will keep on walking and not look back.

Lucky is tempted by Sam who, of course. has started dressing like a hooker in an attempt to seduce a couple different guys. First she wants Lucky as a means of revenge against Liz, then she wants Trevor as a means of protecting her loved ones and getting Jerry off her back, but then again I think she wouldn’t mind having Jerry too. Talk about wanting it all.

Spinelli is still hung up on Lulu, and I am wondering why? She is a whiny brat who has ripped the poor guy's heart to shreds, and he still slobbers over her. Poor Georgie has made it obvious that she likes Spinelli, and I say open your eyes, boy. Go for the girl who won’t break your heart.

The whole Cooper/Maxie/Logan/Lulu crap just bores the crap out of me. Fast Forward

The whole Liz and who does she really loves also bores me.

The Quartermaines rallying around Lulu is a disgrace, and I am wondering why she is so special. Of course, asking that question also brings up my other unanswered question of why Carly is so special and has everyone wanting to protect her.

I can only hope the show gets a bit more interesting during sweeps as I hear a rumor, and I hope its right, that Genie Francis is coming back and lets hope for good. If they are smart, they will keep her on the canvas. Maybe it will save this sinking ship, since the writers appear to be desperate.

Until next time.
