GH: February 2019 Discussion Thread

IMO it'd be karma if Ryan somehow caused Carly to miscarry this spawn of satan

 

Yeah I think it's FrankenVarni too a lot of the same issues are there that a lot of us blamed on Ron

Yeah, I agree.  We have witnessed just how much damage FrankenVarni can inflict on this show without Ron's help for years.  Valentini did Ron no favors when they worked together at GH.  No doubt about it. 

 

Does that mean I think Ron did a halfway decent job at GH?  HELL NO!  Carlivati devolved into full blown hackery for a full two years before he was fired.  The day he was let go from that job, it was like the feeling the warmth of the sun after a dark and ceaseless winter.  I'll never forget how relieved I was that day.  I'm glad he's found his knack at Days.  He belongs there.  

 

This Carson baby is going to become an utter fiasco before it's all said and done.  I'll just sit back and watch the shitshow unfold before me.  My neck is going to get sore from me shaking my head.

I definitely think the writers hands are more tied than folks probably realize. I know it's fun to always blame them, but Frank and Varni have their agendas, IMO. The problem with soaps is too many cooks in the damn kitchen. Ron certainly had his many many problems, but I see so many that still exist on GH that have gotten even worse after he left (the endless string of new hires and soap hoppers playing characters very few except the actors stans, care about and they're kept, re-signed and forced into pairings that don't work ...)

 

 

It's so [!@#$%^&*] horrible. I cannot believe the propping Franco and "Friz" are getting. It makes me nauseous, it really does. Makes me resent it 100x more than I already do. It's ludicrous they're being written like some great love that's being torn apart by lies. Sigh.

 

Ryan really needed to off a few more useless victims like Sasha and Willow, though I'd take the Britt clone anyday over Willow.

 

I feel like I posted this months ago, but maybe not, but I had been waiting for the Ryan story to become a Franco story. And here we are. They are SO [!@#$%^&*] predictable.

 

I wish more viewers saw through the blatant propping in the writing.

 

 

God no. Either being pregnant is horrible! lol. I'm so glad there's no teen pregnancy. It's overdone and never any good. I'm so over pregnancy stories anyway at this point. It's just endless babies when writers have no idea what to do with someone. It's sad. I think even Ron once admitted it gives them a beginning, middle and end and 9 months of story. It's easy (which is lazy writing).

 

I see so many outraged by "menopausal Carly" but she's likely in her 40s. It's not out of the realm of reality that she can indeed become pregnant. This isn't 1989. Instead of being outraged "menopausal Carly" is pregnant and treating it like she's dried up and incapable, people should be more outraged the writers have no clue what to do with her and saddled her with another baby (that's probably going to die and send her into Jax's arms, hopefully). She's not 50 or 60. It's also a soap ... and no, I do not want Carly pregnant in any way, shape or form, but even as a man, I'm sort of insulted at how many throw out the menopausal Carly thing. Twitter lost their damn minds over her supposed pregnancy and it was the most hilarious thing.

Some people are outraged when women are pregnant on soaps in general. I know about women having children in their 40s . I have  a cousin who had her first child when she was 43 (she had another when she was 45)  and a my sister-in-law was 44 when she had my niece. There's a theory that soaps prefer to having older parents having babies because it's easier to SORAS them.

I love how Kevin's super duper private room at Ferncliff has a window on the door that anyone can see through.

 

Michael's on tinder! LOL at him and Alexis's therapist having the same date.

 

I can't imagine telling a stabbing victim that she's remembering things wrong. Even if she is, lol. F-ck Nina.

I know I'm in the minority, but I actually liked RC's tenure on GH, though I can't say I liked every decision he made, such as making Obrecht Chief-of-Staff at the hospital, and especially, killing off Duke and AJ.  During RC's time on GH, the story was alot less predictable.

 

As for the Carson baby, let me pitch this story idea to the writers::  Sonny is angered by his wife's pregnancy news and alerts his right hand man, Jason, to find out who it was that did such a thing to his wife.  Finally, Sonny finds himself at the wrong end of a loaded gun, with Jason holding a gun on him, ready to pull the trigger.  "Oh damn, it was me!"  Sonny mutters.  CLICK, BOOM!

If  that means Sonny finally dies and exits the canvas, I'd have an orgasm where I sit.

Women really love to insult their own with this stuff, but really there is little difference between now, 1989 or 1789  when it comes to women in their 40's getting  pregnant naturally.  It has always been possible, although the odds are against you (I did it twice).  If you have not hit menopause, any doctor will tell you, you are taking a risk by not using contraception.

 

It's also kind of insulting to women when shows have them think they are pregnant, but it's menopause, unless the women is in actual early menopause.  As if women who are on the verge of menopause aren't experiencing symptoms and/or know they are nearing 50. I know that's soaps for you, but it's all the more eye roll worthy in a genre supposedly written for women.

No follow-up on Ryan stabbing Laura with a syringe?

 

LAME.

 

Should have known they were going to skip it today when they didn’t ruin the cliffhanger yesterday with the previews.

 

Maxie’s estrangement with Lulu is still baffling.

GH won a Writer's Guild award LMFAO

 

It's basically a battle between which is the least worst, I suppose, as all four have their massive, IMO, writing problems. It's still LOL though.

Good for her, but shame for GH. They've never ever had an interest in Serena, and it really irritates me, but maybe we were saved a terrible recast and Serena being offed by Jill Phelps ... and Frank cared more about Kiki, when Serena should have been in Kiki's place (except with better storylines and writing ...)

Well, I mean, I'm so tired of babies babies babies on soaps. It feels like endless pregnancies.

 

I'm not happy they made Carly pregnant (for now anyway ... I doubt she carries it to term; GH isn't subtle here) but I was just wishing the folks who were outraged (on the cesspool that is Twitter) were outraged over the fact that it's a stupid plot device and they clearly have no idea what to do with Carly but instead so many whined and whined that she was "menopausal" and all that. It's just bizarre sometimes, reading soap Twitter. Don't even get me started on the stans panting over Ben on DAYS. Lawd.

The difference in chemistry with Genie and Jon as Kevin versus Jon at Ryan is like night and day. not many actor's can pull that off. WOW Jon is truly amazing this story is the only thing I'm watching for
