New HuffPo Article on GH


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I agree with all those critics and bloggers and tweeters and comment-posters that GHin the hands of Valentini and Carlivati is the best that it has been since the Wendy Riche and Claire Labine period, in that it once again feels as if it has been put together by people who understand the genre and its audience.

Oh dear....

Though I am one of the few (if not lone) non-hater of Cartini on this board, I certainly wouldn't go as far as to proclaim them to be the best since Labine/Riche. Sure, they're better than the suck that was Guza/JFP (anyone with a brain can be better than those hacks), but let's not get ahead of ourselves here....

It kind of cracks me up, because Guza was so very highly praised for most of his run as GH headwriter. Now it's all written off. I never liked his work, but I can't say "Cartini" are any better. Unless Claire Labine wrote story after story about how hot it is for a mentally ill woman to be raped, they are not comparable.

Its funny how the press sucked up to the greatness of Guza for years and now he's worse.

But in all fairness, I don't see anything glowing in this writeup which is odd because in one sentence he talks about FV and RC and the new Riche Labine but goes on to criticize almost everything they've done.

In all fairness I don't think many really hated them until the press went overboard and on liners started proclaiming them as next generation saviors. I have actually liked some of what RC has done, the Kish story was decent but the things he seems to be praised for seem to me some of the most repulsive cliched soap story lines.

The guy who wrote the article is a little over the top...Carlivati has turned the show around in 25 episodes or less, and I'm sure given the chance, the show will look much different in a year. It will never be what it was. I was just re-watching the Susan Moore murder clips on youtube from March 1983 and under Anne Howard Bailey the show was on fire. All the vets, the newbies could mostly act. But they had budget and the writers were allowed to create real stories that played out over months. These writers are doing the bidding of corporate execs with a a shoe string budget. We all knew Robin was alive; the only surprise was that they revealed it on a Monday and so soon. We all know Hope is alive but Cole won't be. A viewer has to play along. I too wish Sonny was written out, but Carlivati has created a great dilemna for Sonny and the rivalry with Todd is inspired especially for fans of both shows.

Glad to see someone finally be honest about the state of GH - there seems to be a "can't say anything bad about it ever cause its the last ABC show" mentality and things like this need to be said about the show - especially the killing of the kid in order to fulfill some sort of Cartini wet dream of having Todd's kid and Sonny's kid hook up.

The Carly assessment is right on point, and if I didn't know any better, I'd swear they copied me. Cartini believe they are writing some diva/vixen when Carly is really mentally unstable. The clowns just said "screw that this woman has children and that Wolf had gotten her past this foolish behavior, if we were straight, we'd want a woman like Carly". At least that's what I'm getting out of this heinous junvenile writing!

    • Insulin amendments to the bill: (compiled from various tweets and articles) Senate voted on Kennedy's amendment – he said he will "re-implement a rule Biden repealed to make insulin available at community health care centers."  Would pay for it by redirecting money away from Obamacare. Murray said Rs should support the insulin price cap instead. (This Kennedy amendment was essentially a bid to show Republican support for addressing the cost of insulin, though Democrats opposed it as insufficient. It came right before Republicans were expected to strip out the Democratic-authored insulin proposal in the bill for violating Senate rules on budget reconciliation.) Kennedy amendment did not pass. Republicans challenged the $35 cap on insulin prices for the private marketplace, as a violation of the strict budget rules governing passage of this bill.  The $35 cap on insulin prices for private insurers is officially out of the bill.  Seven Republicans voted with Democrats to keep the cap for private insurers in the bill, 57-43, insulin price cap for private market is stricken from the bill  (needed 60 to survive). 7 Rs voted to keep it in the bill: Cassidy, Collins, Hawley, Hyde Smith, Kennedy, Murkowski, & Sullivan The cap on price of insulin for those on Medicare is still in the bill. That part was ruled to comply with reconciliation rules. Summary: The $35.00 cap on insulin for private insurers was stricken from the bill. The $35.00 cap on insulin for Medicare patients remains in the bill. Senate Finance chair @RonWyden gives out this statement: “Republicans have just gone on the record in favor of expensive insulin. After years of tough talk about taking on insulin makers, Republicans have once against wilted in the face of heat from Big Pharma”.
    • He looks good. When was this? He doesn't have a bad voice. I'm glad he quit Dynasty over the fact that Steven wasn't gay enough.
    • And all were gone not long after Moonves became fully ascendant at CBS. (Though I'm not counting The Nanny.) Yes, Moonves was looking for success. He also had a clear focus on undoing a female-centric image at the network. i'm not going to rehash the entire discussion many of us had about CBS history while I'm recovering from COVID, lol. You can look it up yourself in that thread. It's not hard to search those names in there.
    • The hair definitely 'elevates' this to Big Fat Gypsy Wedding levels. Tiara? You are too modest. It's a motherfucking steelworks up in that birds nest. We knew it would be blingy. We knew it would be Baroque. Teresa lives to overshadow other people. This event is probably the biggest thing northern New Jersey has seen in a LONG time. But the whole thing also looks like it might be a lot of fun to attend? And she definitely understands the assignment in terms of leaking a few insane pics and inviting all these RHs who are going to leak too. This is wonderful marketing for the next season of NJ plus the wedding special.  I wonder if the special will show if Ramona was uninvited, and why Dina refused to attend.
