Sabrina gets her own set.

 

Well, it's Felix's set too. But does that even really count as a set? It's basically four ugly brick walls, surrounding a couch. It looked a little like Liz's old art studio. 


Silas certainly has a wonderful bedside manner.  "Your baby has cancer" and walk away.

 

I love Danny and Sam, but Silas cracked my shit up in that moment. It was just so callous and detached, I couldn't help but laugh when he walked away.

But she looks more Michael and Morgan's age then TJ and Molly's

I think she looks okay next to TJ, but she definitely looks too old to be competing for guys against Molly, who still looks 13.

 

I thought Taylor was pretty and I'm interested in her character so far, but her voice was odd. Kind of mannish. Rafe is boring and the kid can't act, and Molly can fuck off. I really can't stand her. TJ is okay. I don't mind the teen scene so much, actually. Not the worst thing happening on GH at the moment, anyway.

 

It was so weird seeing Lulu stand shorter than Maxie, of all people. It totally changes their dynamic for me, for some reason. I like their chemistry.

 

Sam/Patrick do have chemistry but she is such a drip to me, and always has been. I'd rather they not go there. Maxie/Patrick also have chem, but they consider themselves family and I know she wouldn't do that to Robin. I want them to test Patrick and ER's Lulu.

 


Would love to see her be a bitch to Britt. God, I hate her.

Spoiler
I hate Britt, too...I can't fucking stand her, to be more precise, but this interests me. We have enough people hating Britt and rooting for Sabrina. I wanna see how this plays out.

When Diane was going on and on about Sam and Jason's records, I kept waiting for someone to bring up how many times she had represented Sonny and Jason. Did she ever defend Sam? I was like yeah lady and how much money have you made off Sonny and Jason? lol

Visiting family to day & I got pulled off the barge & watched the show with themm

ITA, that JT/Patrick had more chemistry with Maxie & Sam. TPTB continually choose to ignore it in favor if keeping him with the propped pwincess Sabrina.

The actress that plays Taylor has spunk & her voice is not a shrill whistle like Molly's, so I'll take it. She looks like a teen to me. TJ & Taylor had an ease about them today. Might have to check on them to see what type of chemistry they develop.

Of course Molly wants to be hurt that TJ got a date to the prom after she broke up with him & ask Rafe to go as her date in front of TJ. Same tropes different day.

Also the being out for school thing didn't bother me because depending where you live some kids have been out of school for up to 3 weeks while others will go thru the middle of June. It plays havoc on family vacations because those same kids who get out early have to go back the first of August, while the others don't go back to September which leaves hot as hell July for trips.

Did anyone else catch of Bam-Bam was in the 90th perecentile for height & weight?

My family cracked up with the names we've come up with for our beloved characters...Cancosore, KaKa, Cialis, Fire Marshal Bill. Good laughs all due to you alls brillance.

The funny thing is that actual teens are like that. At 16, some of them look like adults while some are still small and childlike. Of course, in Molly/HP's case, the rather high voice doesn't help. Plus, the way she's been acting about Rafe and TJ has been downright puerile, so there's that, too.

 

I get Taylor's carpe diem attitude, but she needs to get a clue as to what it means when a guy goes through an entire sundae (and that was a huge sundae) and talks about nothing but his girlfriend. He's just not ready to be into you.

That's not weird. Height makes a big difference sometimes in dynamics.



The girl who plays Taylor is pretty and seems quite good, and also, Sabrina's apartment is Olivia's apartment. Noooooooo, that probably means Liv will move into Sonny's soon, haha. I guess she's living in casa orange permanently now.

If RH came back as a reconfigured Mary Mae Ward, I could actually get with that. At least, that would be interesting. The question is, can Roger carry a tune? Because I would want to see him swan around the Haunted Star, doing a torch song or a blues number. Just once.

 

My guess about the school discrepancy thing is that Taylor goes to a private school and they got out earlier that TJ and Molly's public school.

 

I hope Taylor comments on the tacky "brick" walls in Felix's apartment. They look like they're made of paper-mache and spray paint. Probably because they are.

 

What I want to know is where Sabrina is getting the money for all those expensive looking down pillows. Is that what her babysitting money is going for?

 

Oh, I get it, now. She sleeps on them so her delicate princess skin won't feel the pea underneath.

 

Britt's bell was a bit over the top but she was funny. I'm glad she was giving Mary Suebrina grief as she was talking on the phone, complaining about her just ten feet away. Oh, keep it classy, Sabrina.

But those were floated before the OLTL3 had to be Kremlinized.

 

 

dubbel zout, this made me laugh and laugh, attempt to go back to work, and then laugh some more. I think the disappearing of the OLTL3 had a Soviet whiff, but this reinvented reinsertion has that special brand of sick to the point of silly and then back again what-the-fuckery of North Korea.  I expect Kim Jung Ron to soon demand to be addressed as Dear Writer by all his Twitter followers.

 

I only caught the last ten minutes of today so I can't really comment on the episode yet, but was I the only one who thought Sabrina's lipstick was hideously unflattering?  Maybe it was just my TV but it looked completely at odds with her skin tone.  She looked like a 30 year old third wife trying to fit in with her sugar daddy's friends' first wives.

Oh I felt like she was totally over-acting.  Is she from a Disney teen show, did I read that somewhere?  She was like all those teens on a teen show, and like all the teen girls I know that watch teen shows  and start to act like that too, not very natural.  And see looks too old.

My error - I ought to have said "none of the people in Port Charles" not "no one".  I specifically meant that it is jarring to watch the disconnect on TV with the people who view Jason as a saint and Franco as a demon - for example, in the recent Haunted Star party scene - and never seem to notice that their beloved missing son/husband/friend was every bit as much a killer as the guy they hate.  I wasn't talking about other posters at all. 

 

I think when Franco kidnapped and tried to kill several of them or their loved ones, made one believe she was raped, raped one of their sons, it's difficult for them to say, "He's just like Jason, why should we judge him?" because Jason never did any of that to them. 

 

Even then, they are clumsily trying to redeem Franco, so I'm sure he will be just as good as Jason in no time at all.

 

So Silas will be our version of Dr. House?

 

He's what House would have been if Eeyore had been cast instead of Hugh Laurie. 

 

I wish I was more surprised that RC decided having men as douchebags was the perfect way to make them viewer favorites. The bias isn't very subtle - we're already supposed to love Silas and see Sam as in the wrong, presumably since she has lady parts.

All Rafe really has to do is point out to the judge that he spent most of his life on the streets with Alison, and can very easily take care of himself.  If the judge orders Rafe to go live with Cialis Silas, Rafe could probably sue to become an emancipated minor.

Yes, dogstar85, you're correct that Alexis stood up for the justice system and said that basically everyone, including scum like Manny, are entitled to a defense.  But she was clearly unhappy about ALL of it, including how it affected Sam, but since since Sam couldn't see past her own nose, none of that mattered. She and Jason acted like Alexis enjoyed defending Manny.  I hate that leech. As for Diane, I like to think that she's always hated Diane and this is how her hate manifests itself.  Especially since 90% of their alleged friendship is Diane dumping on Alexis.  Ugh. NLG, please leave GH.

Maxie is the latest to ass lick Sabrina (she would NEVER like her. No way!).
 

 

I'm handwaving it that Maxie feels guilty for what she did to Sabrina during the Britch's brief period of hijinks.

 

 

When did Patrick specialize in pediatrics? Hee.
 

 

Well, he did tell Sam to contact Danny's pediatrician...But at least it gave Patrick a break from Sabrina and Britt.

 

 

My guess about the school discrepancy thing is that Taylor goes to a private school and they got out earlier that TJ and Molly's public school.

 

Does Felix's family live out of state? They mentioned Felix was gone for a bit to pick her up and it had been a long journey. Because I went to a private Catholic school here in New York and in high school, I did not get out any earlier than public schools due to the Regent exams.

 

Sam wasn't lying to Danny, Silas. She was repeating what the doctor who examined Danny told her. But Silas is probably going to be right even though diagnosing cancer is not that easy.

I was thinking of the kind of private school that wouldn't have its students taking Regents exams.

 

I'm unclear about where the bulk of Felix's family is because I know he's mentioned a little niece a few times who is apparently close enough for him to borrow dolls from on Emma's behalf.

 

I don't hate Taylor after only five minutes, but I'm not real enthused about the expanding teen set. I'd rather they write meatier storylines -- or, in the case of some characters, storylines in the first place -- for the cast they already have. This isn't the days where teens watch more soaps during the summer because they're off from school. Anyone can watch whenever they want. Brave new world and all that.

Well, that rash did look like petechiae, and with swollen lymph nodes in a baby is cancer unless otherwise excluded. I can fanwank that much- I just don't understand how he can blurt out cancer and then leave. Talk about crappy bedside manner, unless he's just suppose to be this cold and awkward. How am I suppose to root for these two?

Makes me wonder if Dr. Silas has Aspy's or if maybe he has a child that died from cancer.  I can't decide if he left the room because he was being cold and abrupt or if he left the room, because he was upset.  Or maybe he's just an ass?  In which case he will become Dr. SilASS to me. And I'm ready for that wimpy ponytail to be gone.  Maxie needs to whisk him away for a little make-over.

 

Teen Scene storyline is pretty pathetic. Having a hard time to care about any of them.

Wow. Really? A small rash like that and swollen lymph nodes could be cancer? Sheesh.

 

That just goes to show that not having kids was the best decision I ever made in my adult life. I would have just slapped some ointment on that rash and called it a day. I think I have too much of a falling-down-in-the-dirt-won't-kill-you attitude. Except until it does. 

 

I don't know how you parents do it. I'd be a wreck, 24 hours a day.

 

Silas doesn't seem to process emotions all too well or all too quickly. Maybe they're trying to make him a version of "stone cold" since the stoic, silent type is what Sam seems to go for (read: Jason). But, it's not working or they're writing it the wrong way or something. I do think there's some kind of irony in there somewhere since Jason Q was going to be a doctor.

 

Maybe Silas, rather than Franco, is really Jason in disguise!

 

Kidding. No, seriously, universe. I'm kidding! Do not do that.

 

I wouldn't mind the ponytail if it really were one, but it's too short. It's really more like a hamster tail. I mean, good grief, paging Dr. Clay: 1989 called and they want that look back.

I actually could see that (losing a child to cancer) being his back story.  It could explain why he became so forceful about getting custody of Rafe - he might feel like a second chance at fatherhood.  And it would also explain how he's been acting since spotting the rash on Danny.

And this makes no sense. Kristina, after she found out how she got into Yale, dropped out/quit/whatever.  Wouldn't she have to, reapply? She was no longer a student at Yale when she left the show. She was a college dropout.

Worse than being a drop out didn't she just up and leave in the middle of the first semester?

In all honesty, I think you're giving the writers far too much credit. I think it boils down to this:  The writers intend for Sam and Silas to be a couple, because Ron wants to capitalize on Easton's and Monaco's history on Port Charles. But they can't just be a couple; they need conflict. So Silas is a jerk. There'll be no personality disorder. No 'that was too much for me to handle' admission about a dead child. It was conflict.  See, they hate each other. Next, they'll kiss. Then they'll hate each other. Then they'll kiss again. Rinse. Repeat. Period.

 

It's just like Sam and McBain's first kiss on July 4th.  There's no reason those two characters should have or would have kissed at that point, if the writers were thinking about who the characters were and what they would do. The writers wanted the characters to kiss because they are walking plot points and the plot demanded they kiss. So, even though McBain is a good guy and has a girlfriend, he kisses Sam. And even though Sam is depressed about the recent loss of her child and still has a deep love for Jason, she kisses McBain. And no sharing of a single bottle of beer by two people weakens their inhibitions to the point where they act on an attraction, especially one that doesn't even seem to be there yet.  YMMV.

 

The only good thing about losing McBain and getting Silas -- we no longer have to hear about some lame-ass "connection" between Sam and John. God, that was some of the worst forced writing I have ever witnessed.

 

I'm done figuring out nuances and characterizations. There are none. Every single character is nothing more than a walking plot point. Except for Roger Howarth's character. He's Ron's muse and voice on the show. Roger's character can stand in a room, toss insults and unfunny jokes, and his audience will stand there listening to him, just like Ron imagines himself holding court with us, the viewers.
