GH: December Discussion


Recommended Posts

I'd be happy to see the character and especially the actress return as well. I didn't watch yesterday's episode yet, but it sounds like it all adds up to that. "Oscar Jessup" ... going after Julian .... it writes itself. I'd love nothing more for it to end in Julian's demise. Payback's a bitch

Not to mention it sort of continues Ron's "legacy" (cos this is EXACTLY the story he'd tell...). Obviously Valentini plays a huge part in that kind of "legacy."

 

I wonder if Jean and Ron share ideas .... lol

 

Aren't they supposed to be friends?

Not to mention, it would give Finola Hughes great material, that is, if written correctly.

Lest we forget how Jillian's return didn't involve Finola but gave Mo plenty to do. I expect more of the same. Another back from the dead and this return is going to be better than the 57 other returns?  Sigh...

I share your apprehension.  However, my hope is that the current writers access the great scenes with that character and Anna, and also Lucy on YouTube.  There is no Sonny needed for this return, if the rumor is true.

I don't really think this would be for Sonny, of course they'll probably prove me wrong, but I agree with you that Jillian was all about Sonny. He's a little busy at the moment with Carly Junior. How long before Nelle's knocked up by Michael and telling Sonny he's the father?

I'd love to see Lucy involved. Let's hope they recognize she should be.

Just think of Liz's rapist being about everything but Liz. 

 

Jillian and Olivia back from the dead is lazy and hideous and I don't have to promise you that this will be trash because you already know that.

I offended some people when I suggested that Y&R needed either another black writer or a consultant. I'm going to have to double down on that and say that GH needs a consultant who will help them figure out how to write for women. I don't care that the writers are women, they don't know what they're doing.

 

They've lost perspective on how absolutely unacceptable and completely sexist some of these stories are. Pretend rapist and serial killer Franco as Liz's avenging angel?

LuLu baby crazy for years, violated by having her eggs stolen and carried to term without her consent.  Nina baby crazy to the point of kidnapping. Do they even get how insulting the "dangerous infertile woman" trope is to women who actually are infertile? No, they don't because they are clueless.  Carly going back to a man who has caused so much damage to her children. Really, she wants to raise Joss and Avery in that? Alexis stuck in a story with a man who tried to murder her? Are they seriously going to put them back together? I can't. In fact, I won't. Despite the fact that it's freezing outside and I'm knee deep in diapers, I'm taking a good long break from this drivel. It's not like GH offers any kind of escape at this point.

this post and completely spot on. It's offensive to see how women write other women, and I'm a dude. It's awful. Gotta pander to the "Julexis" fanbase. I guess her drunkenly running him over with her car is foreplay.

 

But look at Ron. A gay man can't even write for gay men. All he ever had them do is watch Knots Landing and Golden Girls. But at least they got some airtime I guess. It's now Lucas who? Brad got something last month. Felix got something with Sobby kicked the bucket. But nothing for any of them.

    • Hope you can add some more. My next contribution is Dear John on NBC. In the 1998/89 season it took Night Court's 9.30 pm Thurs slot following Cheers. Cheers was # 4 and Dear John a respectable #11. In it's 2nd season it kept the 9.30 pm slot till mid season when it was replaced by Grand. I believe NBC was under pressure from Carsey/Werner productions to place their new show in that plum slot (they supplied Cosby and A Different World) Dear John got moved to Wed 9.30 following Night Court. It finished #17 for the season but that average was bumped up from the Thurs showings. In 90/91 it retained the 9.30pm Wed slot but now followed a new show Fanelli Boys. Wed 9-10 Wk 1 1990/91 season ABC Doogie Howser #8 CBS Jake and the Fatman # 25 NBC fanelli Boys #42/Dear John # 52  Fanelli flopped and NBC moved Dear John to 9pm. By Jan 1990 Night Court was back to 9pm and Dear John was back to 9.30 before being shunted to 10.30 Saturday. It's overall ranking was #50 For it's final season it was given the 9pm Fri timeslot but was moved to 9.30 . It ranked #77. So it only worked with a strong lead in - timeslot hit.

Wheels NBC (R) 10.0/18   NBC showing the most mini series for the least return.  The Innocent and The Damned was a new title for Aspen. Maybe they thought people would be fooled into watching a rerun. The Wheels rerun was truncated due to dreadful ratings. Originally all 5 episodes were going to be shown, but after dire ratings for ep 1 and 2, they showed a summary of eps 3&4 before playing the final episode.
    • I agree. With that in mind, I think we've pinpointed a good amount of 1980s and 1990s time slot hits.
    • Bit hard to play that when Paul has been gone for years, but yes beforehand their connection was downplayed. With Paul isolated because of LLB's absence they could have easily played up a lonely Paul leaning on Lauren. Write in some issues that would cause friction b/w Lauren and Micheal and bingo! Paul and Lauren could be tempted. Yes that relationship should have remained stronger over the years.
    • To my way of thinking a show can only be classified as a timeslot hit if it is moved out of a timeslot it is rating well in, and doesn't perform as expected/hoped for in the new timeslot. That discounts a lot of shows that get moved at the end of their lifespan. I would put Hotel in that category along with other examples like Falcon Crest and Trapper John, which after several successful seasons were falling in the ratings and basically moved elsewhere to finish their runs. Had Hotel been moved in Season 3 and bombed then its status as a timeslot hit would be proven. Looking forward to your response!
