  1. I am not a fan of constant headwriter changes in general. Just like under Mr. Carlivati, I think what the show needed/needs is a good story consultant, though I am not sure who a good candidate would be. To be fair, I think lately the writing has improved with Kate Hall's return and Lucky Gold now on board.
  2. Not a fan of the Chimera story line, but I will say I loved seeing Constance Towers again despite that. As of late, I am liking the hospital intrigue with Brad and Ava's attempt to get full custody of her daughter. So, i.e., I like the traditional soap material much more than the mystery/adventure stories, at least as written by Jean and Shelly. I did like the Olivia Jerome return a while back but other than that, I have found Jean and Shelly's mystery/adventure stories to be too "talky" for my tastes. No one can be good at everything, and I acknowledge that.
  3. I love Finola Hughes, and I also love Anna, but I know already that I do not like this story of a "double" running around. Storylines using a double have become a very tired soap cliche, almost as tired as the endless cups of coffee poured on soaps in their early days.
  4. It was great to see Constance Towers back yesterday as Helena. With Tony Geary's departure, I didn't think we'd see her again. Though she plays a cruel, murderous villain, there is no hiding the class and beauty of Ms. Towers.
  5. I have liked the material they have given Maura West as Ava lately. The story line with the pills and now, Ava's efforts to get custody of her daughter full-time is actually more conventional soap stuff--a mother going way overboard due to obsessive love for her children. I'd rather see this type of story than bombs, gun violence, or mystery stories that leave me disappointed. I have said repeatedly that Jean and Shelly are traditional P&G-style writers, and I do not have a problem with that at all. They should stick to the more traditional family-oriented storylines like they are giving MW right now and avoid the mystery stories. While good in other ways, they are generally lousy with mystery stories. I still have not completely forgiven them for that awful hospital serial killer fiasco.
  6. I don't think that Tracy's exit was all that bad. Who says that the guy Tracy locked eyes with was Luke? He could be anybody. I don't think there was any way they could have topped Jane's 1993 departure scenes. They had Lila in them, and the acting, writing, music--everything was flawless. I am going to see how things go with GH for a little while longer. I am contemplating giving up GH and following Mr. Carlivati to "Days" when his material starts to air.. :
  7. I am liking the Scotty/Ava scenes. I would like them to make Ava more of a fun-loving villain like Heather used to be in the 80s. I think that is the way they want to go. Scotty would then be the perfect partner for her. However, I think it would be more interesting if Scotty and Ava had some sort of common goal or project to scheme on together, rather than Scotty just making comedic comments like he does now, though, no one does it better than he does.
  8. I loved the episode, but, I thought some of the choice of actors was odd, too. I don't know if the scene still exists, probably not, but I vividly recall a scene where Tracy goaded Lee Baldwin into taking a drink at The Rib, witnessed by Jessie Brewer, who oddly, did not stop her, but did pass on what she saw to Gail later on. Gail ripped Tracy a new one right after Jessie told her what went down. I would have loved to see that again--so that way, this episode today would have showcased not only the award winning performances of our beloved Miss Jane, but the award winning performance of Peter Hansen as Lee, too.
  9. Line said by Jax on the 4/24/17 episode: "......Sonny is at the epicenter of everything, and it breaks my heart....." I do not hate MB, but it almost sounds like one of the script writers dug into the pile of letters from viewers marked "unhappy", because that line reminded me of so many of the complaints I've seen written here.
  10. Right now, the only story interesting to me is Ava and her panic over Morgan's pills. My list of things uninteresting is much longer. The mystery of Jake and the Scarecrow has not grabbed my interest. I do not care about Hayden, Finn, or his addiction. I absolutely hate how they have dumbed down and de-clawed Jordan. The whole mystery of Tracy's painting was boring, too, until she came home with it and there was all that Quartermaine banter. That was fantastic! I thought it would have been alot more interesting if the painting had disappeared for longer and was hidden somewhere in the house. The search within the mansion have been hilarious, but, then, what do I know ? I guess they had to hurry everything with Jane's imminent departure. I think she will be missed even more than most fans have thought.20171110851666820171110851666
  11. He looked good and it was nice to see him, but wow! What an otherwise ho-hum episode. YAWN!
  12. I enjoyed the Q's banter on the 4/17/17 episode. It was so much fun to watch, but at the same time, it made me sad, because I think that may have been the last time ever of watching scenes like that with JE on her way out. For how good the scenes were, I especially felt the loss of Stuart Damon as Alan on this particular episode, even after all this time that Alan has been gone.
  13. I wish I could find the interview about it, but, if I am remembering correctly, Mr. Carlivati mentioned that it was decided to change Franco's paternity in order to connect him with characters that were currently on the canvas (Scotty, Heather), rather than to those that were dead and gone (Alan Quartermaine, Susan Moore, etc.). I guess that would mean a character like Griffin would not have been created under Mr. Carlivati's pen. I agree with other posters here that making the character of Lee's death about Franco would be a disservice to everyone.
  14. To be honest, I don't think they had any plans to bring back Alex, but then, an ABC suit will read all the fan speculation and might order Jelly to make it fit. I have my doubts that this duo of headwriters has a story bible of any kind. All the evidence points to them starting up stories with no plans for the outcome. That explains why there are no great payoffs during sweep periods with them. I truly don't mean to trash Jelly. They have created some interesting characters and some of their ideas have been good, but I have said for a long time that they need a good story consultant to help them with formulating a story bible and how to follow through on it. I am probably in a minority that don't see the need to fire them. With help, they can succeed, I think.
  15. I pray that they do. Just to dedicate an episode to his memory would be more than fitting and proper. If I am not mistaken, he was the first actor from GH to win an Emmy. For his solid work, he brought the show prestige when the ratings were finally on the rise at the time. In retrospect, for all the drama that Lee was involved in, the writers of GH were remarkably slow in having Lee, a character established early on as an alcoholic, to start up drinking again.
