    Spoilers and Speculation: Clink Boom and Cheese Fondue

    Kelly Monaco showed that, if you just stick around long enough and have your backstory changed enough times, you too can be a major star on GH.

    Stars In Other Roles: Doppelgangers!

    I thought that too, although in all fairness he was given a lot more to work with writing-wise. And he was simply "better than how he was playing Morgan", not OMG-blow-your-socks-off-A-Star-Is-Born! terrific. He's still got a long way to go to develop as an actor. I enjoyed GRAND HOTEL as well, it was soapy, frothy, and fun. Gave me a real "classic DYNASTY" vibe. I'm intrigued enough to keep watching.

    GH In The News: The PC Press Club

    JT made it quite clear that he disliked the two pairings that were written for him when Robin was off canvas, then abruptly announced he was leaving for Y&R. Those bridges lit up the night sky. If FV somehow decides he just has to have JT back in the cast (despite ample evidence that, without KMc around to carry his sorry ass, he is incapable of acting), he should bring him back as Patrick's brother Matt. Matt could be recently paroled from prison and back in town looking to see if he can reignite the spark between himself and Maxie. Also, rumor has it that Gina Tognoni is campaigning hard for FV to bring JT back as Patrick with herself as recast Robin. This idea is so utterly horrible I'm willing to bet that FV is seriously considering it.

    GH In The News: The PC Press Club

    The big question is where JT will go after he gets bounced from Y&R. There's no place for him at GH any more, not to mention he burned his bridges here. ( Although I could see FV taking him back, if only to make him crawl.)

    Spoilers and Speculation: Clink Boom and Cheese Fondue

    I seem to vaguely recall that Lucy was a psychic at one point, I'm guessing Joss goes to her to set up a seance to commune with Oscar's spirit or some such thing.

    American Princess

    For some reason this show is reminding me quite a bit of SLINGS AND ARROWS. I'm definitely going to be giving it a look.

    And good thing too, because it is basically thankless.

    Well, not surpisingly, the Change.org petition is going nuts.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    I found this article interesting. TV History tells us that Game of Thrones will end one of six ways.

    Emilia Clarke has taken to social media to bid farewell to Daenerys Targaryen and it is just unbelievably sweet:

    CNBC did an article about the fan anger at GAME OF THRONES and how the franchise could suffer for it:

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    This, they will muddle through the way every publicly held corporation muddles through when it doesn't deliver a promised return on investment - a bunch of people will get fired (hopefully just the CEOs who greenlit the money-losing thing that happened) and the company will start cutting back on expenses, by, say, cutting the budgets of or shelving certain guaranteed-to-be-wildly-expensive prequels. Also, I need to take a walk of shame* on the foreign marketing thing - I misinterpreted the Deadline article about D&D shopping a global overall deal. Shows you what happens when you only read the headline and just skim the article! * - Although it will probably be harder on you then me, because you really don't want to see me naked! ;) I found a CNBC article article discussing this topic, I will take it to the Media thread if any are interested in reading it. It also robs the actors of crucial tools they need to do their jobs correctly.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Last I heard, negotiations for airing rights for Season 8 had barely started. I'm not saying the 170 countries won't buy the show, but I can see the asking price being negotiated down. Also, HBO doesn't make as much money off of international sales as it does subscriptions because the middlemen in international sales have to take their cut, middlemen who have their own bottom lines to protect and who will adjust their offers based on how much they perceive that the value of GAME OF THRONES has deteriorated. Look, I'm just saying there are other things to keep your eye on to ascertain whether or not the fan fury at GoT is real or just an internet-fueled delusion. One of them is subscription cancellations. The other is if the international licensing sales turn out to be less than expected. Another is the quarterly financial reports - did they get adjusted down, or do they stay the same? (The ultimate sign that a production decimated a company's bottom line is if they have to take a write-down). It's patently obvious that GoT made HBO a lot of money. But it also cost them a lot of money (GAME OF THRONES is the most expensive TV series ever made). They expected to make that back through subscriptions, international sales, DVD sales, licensing, etc. They have other series they are developing that they were planning on using profits from GoT to finance. So keeping an eye on what happens to subscriptions, keeping in eye on how the international sales go, keeping an eye an quarterly financials and all those other things is a good way to gauge whether the anger over GoT is just a few internet loudmouths or a genuine expression of massive fan anger.
