And I'm loving the Ned/Tracy/Olivia/Alexis from yesterday and today. Every beat is being played so well.

It’s certainly much better played than most of the affair reveals we’ve seen lately on daytime. It actually involved the families, which is classic soap. Still there’s something rather thin about it, as I was never that invested in Ned/Olivia.

They needed to be on contract. You can't really invest in any character or their storylines if they're on only a few times a month. I felt the same way about Molly and TJ.

Exactly. 100 percent agree.

That was my issue with the Lucas/Brad/Wiley storyline!  Hard to be invested in something that is so sporadic.

 

I love seeing the recurring cast, but they should not be the main part of umbrella storylines.  Without Nelle and Lucas that story had no emotional tie or jeopardy, and they were both not core cast members.  So stupid.

Playing catch-up and on 1/12 and...

 

...WOW. They really have Sonny with no memory? Really? I don't know if I'm shocked that happened or the fact that NONE of his ex ladies (perferably Brenda) didn't stumble on him first.

 

However...this story has possibilities. Example Ava vs Carly over Avery. I could be down for that. If they kept Sonny away for say...three months...(or just end of February Sweeps). And build to it. It could be crazy.

 

I could also be down for a TJ vs Brando rivalry...or TJ/Molly/Brando/Sasha quad of some type. I would want TJ with Molly and Brando with Sasha but some messy situation. 

 

Uh...I know you all have said Chase...well the actor...is good, but regularly watching...I'm seeing why. There's something about how he's acting that draws me in. It could be that I am sucker for when characters have a hint of lovelorn...and JS is giving it and I see it. So I am kinda rooting for him. Sorry, Michael. 

 

Then again, I can say the same for recast TJ. He's been doing good the last few weeks. I'm seeing him less like a recast.

The show is definitely much better without Sonny and Julian. I wish Sonny would stay dead but we'd never be that lucky.

 

Jason and REAL Carly taking over could be great. Too bad it's Soccer Mom Carly. No offense to Laura Wright, who's great. Jason and Carly should also be hitting the sheets over their grief. Just sayin'.

 

I liked the unraveling of Curtis and Jordan. FakeJordan is growing on me. I wouldn't mind her jumping for a ride on Taggert. And I feel like lots could be explored with Curtis and Portia. It's also time for Jordan to lose her job ...

 

Agreed on Molly and TJ being severely underutilized. 

 

Genie Francis is carrying this SHOW. Whoever wrote the script for Friday's episode was enjoying Laura / Lesley / Cyrus. The lines were great. I was dying. It's SO nice seeing Denise Alexander back as Lesley. I wish she had been used more over the last decade but at least they always seem to find a way to utilize her. Just wish it were more often.

 

I was also lol'ing during Britt and Obrecht's reunion. "Did you get bangs?" ... "call the WSB, they have a 1-800-number and everything!" LMAO

 

I lol'd when Ryan smirked as he was wheeled into the elevator. Ryan, don't go .... I HAVE A LIST!

 

And with the canvas the way it is ... now's a good time to bring back Brenda for an amnesiac Sonny and bring on Spencer for angst in the teen crowd and Ava/Nikolas, Laura/Lesley/Cyrus ... it all writes itself, really.

 

Also paging Lucky Spencer ...

In the old soap days, Sonny would have amnesia and end up with a new love interest once all of this is done.  Ava would somehow discover his new life and keep it to herself.  And Jason and Carly would absolutely end up falling in bed while he is gone.  And in true soap tradition, his new lady would be the complete opposite of Carly or Brenda.  Maggie or Hope on the farm type.  And it would lead to years of story and possibly actual growth with Sonny.  Or at least another real chance for him to claim he wants power above everything else.

 

If he’s going to be there, I want to see him doing something different for a change.

Yeah, I know what I just said. re: Brenda.

 

But you know what? I like your idea better.

Aha!

 

I suspected that black nurse would be connected to someone!!! So Nina might find out the truth after all.

I suppose it’s good that, during this amnesia story, GH is acknowledging Sonny’s bipolar disorder by showing him in his manic state while off his meds. I just wonder where it’s going to lead.

I'm finding this Sonny. Just as annoying as regular Sonny. I'm glad his bipolar disorder. Isn't being overlooked. It's nice too see GH. Using Bobbie a bit. Jackie Zeman's mug doesn't look too frozen. You would think MEK and KD scenes would be good. But MEK really bad Southern accent. And his lack of effort. Makes the scenes suck.

TB is definitely the definitive TJ now. I always felt that he was a better actor than the other one.

For me, it helps that I'm watching regularly versus haphazardly. lol.

 

And they are showing him more which is a bonus.

 

And okay, kinda cute.

Some thoughts ...

 

I enjoyed the use of Tracy this go around. This is how you make it worth an actor's time to come out of 'retirement' and play. (Jess Walton deserves the same at Y&R but Griffith sucks)

 

Sonny's amnesia has potential but it's clear his large episode guarantee is a hindrance. How many days can you show Phyllis and Lenny angsting over him? Lord it's already played out.

 

I like Phyllis and Lenny and appreciate they tied Phyllis in to this, which also crosses into Carly/Nina/Jax and the Nelle secret. Speaking of that, Nina/Jax is ready to implode and that should be fun.

 

This is how Carly should be written. Well, somewhat. At least she's plotting and scheming and driving story. I LOVE they included Bobbie. FINALLY. I want more of this. It's really all I ask. Just use the vets well; they don't have to be leads. I like they remembered Bobbie's history with Wyndemere and living there. I notice more and more history usage/mentions and I'm here for it. Use it when it's relevant. That's also all I ask.

 

I literally yawned during the Michael and Willow flashbacks. Really GH. You think this couple has any chemistry? They do not. I know it's subjective but they are literally as boring as paint drying (which is ironic one of their 'sexy' scenes was painting; I swear it was done on purpose). Gawd. Something has to shake up Michael/Willow/Sasha because it's just not working. Sasha works on her own but the actress is still a bit green. Yet I still find her vastly more interesting than who they want to push: Willow. Yet the actress playing Willow has kinda won me over. It's weird. They need to do better here.

 

Tad and Jenny were finally reunited in Port Charles. LOL. It was nice to see them together. MEK really has started to take care of himself again and it's so nice to see. I was honestly worried about him towards the end of AMC (which, sadly was a decade at this point). I like they're infusing humor into Martin and Valentin more and more. The actors do it well and it works. Valentin is kinda growing on me and it's thanks to MEK and Martin. Weird. 

 

I enjoyed the Ned/Olivia/Alexis fall-out. Lisa LoCicero is great and I love they're using her more post-covid shutdown. It's noticeable and appreciated, at least by me. Using Tracy to "drive" the story as well helped tremendously.

 

Steve Burton perks up around Rebecca Herbst, just saying. I'm so sick of Liz being used to prop Franco and Howarth's scenery chewing is beyond old. PLEASE put us out of our misery here.

 

The show isn't perfect but I do see a ... shift, maybe, and it *almost* feels like Frank is letting Dan and Chris write and that they remembered it's a soap opera. There's lots of potential, IMHO. Let's see how it goes ...

 

And I like Bellow as TJ. He's grown on me. Tequan is the better actor (and I'm beyond thrilled Tequan and Vinessa are having success outside of daytime, they were STARS and GH failed to use them well) but TB is good when given the material. Molly and TJ aren't used nearly enough. I always get encouraged when they have a few episodes but they aren't on contract so ... sigh.

 

And honestly, why didn't they just cast Johnny Wactor as Lucky?

Agreed.

 

Things have gotten better. But it seems like they often make the wrong decisions story-wise. The wrong things get dragged out for too long (Peter), and the right things get wrapped up too quickly (Ava/Nik/Liz/Franco). I'm hoping they just all go out for everybody during February sweeps.

MEK has lost weight. He looks better than he did most of the last fifteen years.

Agreed, it's still a mixed bag and I'm reserving some hope lol because it could quickly get derailed.

 

Can we keep TempJordan?
