I have to be honest, my cable went out the week of Labor Day and so I missed that entire week, now that I have my cable back I found myself not even wanting to watch the show! I have no idea what is going on and I think I don't care. This has been the longest I have ever gone without watching the show, with the exception of the OJ trial all those years ago. LOL!
Just watched on You Tube, couldn't wait to get home! I have mixed feelings, not about today's show, but I guess I have to accept that Lacy are over! And today is the last time they will ever be together.
But for me, the absolute best was when Tracy and Luke came back from Vegas married in 2005 and they had to tell the Q's. I remember Wally biting the inside of his cheek so hard I thought it would bleed. And Jane was bent over with her had covering her mouth trying not to loose it, even Leslie was trying her hardest not to laugh.
According to Entertainment Weekly's website today was Tony's last day of shooting. There is a 15 second clip of his farewell and I guess he did cry a bit despite his best effort not to. Unfortunately, I cannot paste the link on my work computer because of a firewall, but you can check it out.
I have a bunch of different feeling about last week, but I think the thing I am most mad at is the writers! I feel like this is just lazy writing and the fake sense of urgency to help Lucky and not tell anyone and pretend to be back together is what makes non-soap fans laugh at the genre and people like myself actual soap fans wonder why we still watch. It's as if the writers just blocked out the storyline like.....
Laura comes back
interrupts Lacy engagement
tells Luke what's wrong
Luke breaks engagement
can't tell anyone
pretends to get back together
go helps Lucky
But instead of this happening over a period time it all happened in one episode. And I have a feeling this is what Tony meant about having to "let Luke go" and do what they write because he is playing it so wooden and uncaring like hurting Tracy was nothing. It feels like he is reading a teleprompter and don't get me started on Genie, she is so NOT a good actor; when in the room with JE and TG she sticks out like a sore thumb.
I do like this new Dillon and I agree with ILTQ when he told Laura to walk out I was cheering him on! Tracy needs someone completely on her side and he came back just in time.
**There is a spoiler out there that says Bobbie gets in Laura's face about what went down at the engagement party, I hope this happens because someone needs to get in her face and tell her whats what!
Ok, I know it has been like a million years since I have posted here, but I have lingered on and off while at work.
I don't really have much too add about Tony leaving the show, but I am glad for him. As someone who works in the retirement planning business, I can say that if you have the means to retire and live the rest of your years happily then by all means do it!! For some it is not an option or they have the drive to work and retirement is not something they want to do. But seeing Tony on my television yesterday I have to admit, he looked tired, thin and way too pale for someone who lives in SoCal. After all that he has been through in the past few years it's time.
I admit I am going to miss my LuNacy very much. I hope they can keep Jane in a good story for as long as she wants to work on GH.
