GH to air "classic" episodes

SBu and MB both sound like they are bullies on set, so I don't like that. They seem to get very jealous and vocal when someone might possibly be stealing their spotlight.  And all that Monavie juice shilling nonsense on Steve's part rubbed me the wrong way.  But, funny story, I met him years ago at a place I worked and he was super nice and really gorgeous in person.

 

I don't care for Jason much.  I liked when he first became Jason Morgan and had his romance with Robin, but I never thought Jason Morgan the Borg was a permanent thing.  Like why on earth did he just never get any of his old memories back?  I can't believe the original intention of that story was for Jason to just lose his memories and his Q side forever.

 

Todd was for sure the best OLTL characters to move to GH, but McBain was good with Sam.  Shame that all fell apart.

 

The only time I can remember Jason's hair being ridiculous is during the Black and White ball period where it was all long and greasy looking.

Monavie. Shivers. I do feel his leaving and coming back from Y&R has mellowed him so I can believe that.

 

Well, you got it...just not with SBu's Jason. ;)  I was such a Jason/Robin fan and loathed SJB Carly messing that up.

 

Even as a Liason fan (and I admit that I liked Greasy Black/White Ball Hair...don't shoot me), I saw more in common with McBain and Sam vs Jason and Sam outside of the opportunity to see Liz get back with him. Perhaps it is because ME and KM played one of my favorite couples. I loved Livvie and Caleb together...they fit perfectly once she went bad girl and I have fun memories (and live for the day it shows up on YT again with the original song Delirum's FLOWERS BECOME SCREEN) of the masquerade ball from the Naked Eyes arc on PC when they crossed past and had those other live flashbacks as they were dancing. shivers and just that timeless Vampire love vibe. Rumbling. lol. But I felt they had an easy chemistry and just fit better given the things going on in their lives.

loved when he returned after his first exit with this wavy hair over eyes thing that apparently a lot of fans hated at the time, but what do I know? lol. 

 

 

 

 

I also thought he looked great with his longer hair, but it wasn’t butch enough for mob Jason apparently.

 

Yes, it did kind of coincide with his marriage now that I think about it.  But still, look at Kelly.  Nobody is letting her not be in a bikini.  It’s just another example of a double standard.  Again, his clothes were not even fitted until he came back under Valentini.

 

The men on GH have fought so many romantic pairings it is ridiculous.  Steve did it, Tyler did it.  Tony (mostly not wanting to be paired with Laura again, but still).

 

Liz/Jason/Sam/Lucky could have been that generations Lesley/Rick/Monica/Alan.  But key performers (mostly Steve) have reportedly pushed back against it several times.

I lived for SJB's Carly whenever she called Robin 'St. Robin.' Like in the spat 2:20 in.

 

I mostly just miss the nuance SJB brought to the role....

Lol. She was so hood. There are times in this clip she reminds me of Drita from Mob Wives.

I liked them as rivals because Robin wasn’t the normal good girl trope on soaps, she had been through it and was tough, and SJB’s Carly had that vulnerability that made you root for her even when she was a nightmare to everyone else.

That's what I miss about Carly. LW's portrayal just makes her unbearable. Doesn't help that they've had her bring up Robin's HIV status to her face. Disgusting.

Today’s classic shows just how much the creative team at the time needed a change.  They finally got Vanessa back and subjected us to this.  With all this emotion on display, the show should not feel this lethargic.

 

I do think this is maybe the best speech about himself that Sonny has ever delivered in his entire run on the show.  The power he knows will always be there.  Even if he has to fight for it.  Because the love, even if he fights for it, won’t last or stay.  That’s why he will always choose power.

If this is the episode I'm thinking of, it's some of Maurice's last, best work and it's the reason I've said ever since that there is no point pairing Sonny with anyone unless the character chooses to fundamentally change. If he won't do it for Brenda, he'll do it for no one. It was an incredible scene.

It is probably MB's last, best work.  It was actually probably the best VM/MB scene in her return because it made sense for both characters and was well acted.  The fundamental issues in their relationship were still there even if the love still was as well.  The JaSam stuff is pretty silly compared to the emotion of Sonny and Brenda.  Also it had some good Jax stuff with him saying goodbye to little Morgan.

Not sure where to put this but this Maurice interview is interesting. He seems to shade some co-stars for not plugging his book and while he compliments DZ as an actor he also calls him insecure

If Mo ever starts telling people and fans to call him Sonny, then you know he’s done and it’s time for him to go

Sonny is a piece of Garbage that should've been killed off years ago...
