    S12.E19: The Inspiration Deprivation

    I've never been to a taping, but it does seem that on more than one occasion Simon has had Johnny on the verge of breaking character with unplanned laughter.

    Props to both comments. A lot of the younger viewers probably don't remember Laura as the ORIGINAL bad-ass, ride-or-die girl. As many times as Luke threatened to kill Helena, Laura was the one to actually do the deed (until Hells came back one last time before Nikolas finally pulled the old bat's plug). We actually do need to see Laura do some Mayoral stuff though. In the brief glimpses we've seem so far she's actually appeared to be quite capable.

    It really doesn't need to be any more complicated than that in a modern, industrialized society, IMHO. I'm glad that GH has decided to tackle the health care affordability issue. However, as another poster pointed out, it really doesn't make sense with Jordan, a Police Commissioner with I'm guessing a high five-figure or low six-figure salary.

    Getting To Genoa You : Y&R Daily Chat

    Yeah that made me a little uneasy too. And then you have Rey and Sharon. Just sayin.'

    I have never heard that phrase before and will find an excuse to use it once weekly for the rest of my life. 🙂

    S04.E17: All About Eve (2018.03.31)

    I've said it before and now it's truer than ever: Kara's secret ID is a joke. Think about all the "non-super friends" who must know her true identity. Kat Grant is a friend, no threat there. But Lex knows (and by association Eve must know as well). Russian Supergirl knows. Lillian Luthor knows. Manchester Black plucked the Fortress of Solitude's location from J'onn's mind, you know it didn't stop there. He likely knew Kara and Clark's real ID - if so, did he tell the rest of the Elite? The Snake Lady certainly seemed to know. The crazy guy that worshiped Kryptonians (is he still alive?) knows. Even if you pull out the now-deceased Manchester and make the bold assumption that the rest of the Elite doesn't know, that's still a small village of people, folks. Having said that, possibly the best episode of the series, absenting the "young Alex and Kara" one. Even the small story flaws (which are not going away) were tolerable with enough suspension of belief.

    I'm a man so the "good looking guy" thing escapes me. I saw the actor on a Hallmark romance movie awhile back and thought, "he's SO not a romantic lead." Different strokes, I guess. Plus, Valentine is the lamest Cassadine ever. None of Stefan's intellect or charm. None of Stavros' single-minded, malevolent obsession. Damn, even Alexis is more intimidating. I look forward to his character leaving the canvass soon as well, although it probably won't happen.

    S04.E15: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    I'm usually more of an Alex-in-jeans guy, but I'll agree with you both. Melissa is a cutie, but Alex has that killer hour-glass figure going on.

    S04.E15: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    I'm fairly certain now that Manchester was/is the DCU's iteration of a mutant. In his first appearance there was a slight hint that he was a low-level telekinetic. Kinda sad to see Manchester go. Interesting character with charisma and a lot of potential. His agenda got really muddy, though. To me there was no way of telling what his long game actually was, it never really made sense. In a way Manchester was SG's most formidable foe, he deserved to hang around a while longer IMO. One thing that really bugs is how the writers are time-releasing his backstory. Brainy's one line about Mon-El being dismissive of him was delivered with subtle intensity; you can tell that he's still holding a grudge. I'm hoping we get a Brainy stand-alone episode soon. Well two seasons ago Superman did say J'onn was the most powerful being on the planet. Makes sense because he has so many impressive powers (invisibility, shape shifting, and intangibility) that Kara and Kal-El don't have. He just fails to use them effectively. I'm really curious as to what the staff does, don't remember him having one in the comics, but then I stopped reading DC books 20 years ago.

    S04.E14: Stand And Deliver

    I've resigned myself to the reality that the writers are just screwing with us as far as Kara's secret ID is concerned. Yep, that makes a whole lot of sense. I wonder what kind of powers James will have. The maddening thing about SG is that its always so close to being a good superhero show, but the showrunners are never able to close the deal. I have a good friend that gave up on SG about three episodes into this season. I told her the key is to accept that this is as good as the show's ever going to be.

    Actually, I was wondering why Laura felt the need to be on the bridge, with Jason, for the presumed "kill shot." Not a good look for the new Mayor to be involved in a murder, even Ryan's. Aaargh..St. Jasus...so interesting that the one time he really, seriously needs to off someone, he can't get it done. And I don't buy that it was because Ava was in the way. JaBorg is supposed to be an expert marksman. Plus, if he had shot Ava by mistake, Sonny and Carly would have turned cartwheels.

    I know Laura's been through a lot lately, but why would she, as the Mayor of Port Charles, tag along on Jason's (botched) hit? If JaBorg had killed Ryan and Laura had to testify on the stand, would she have perjured herself to protect St. Jasus? Sloppy writing that undermined an otherwise decent (if overly long) S/L.

    S04.E14: Stand And Deliver

    Yeah, I kinda wondered that myself. And regardless to whether or not Kara has a family "claim" to the Fortress, bad things always seem to happen there when she's involved. Kinda reminds me of the rowdy cousins who always broke my models when I was younger. And how did Manchester even know about the Fortress? Or how to get there? No need to apologize. That dress was talking, Eve never looked more attractive. "Miss Tess-MACHER" indeed. Just wish they'd stop nerfing him. Every time he uses his telepathy, he can always "feel" his target, but can never find them. At least we got to see his native Martian form. The f/x costs related to that can't be that high, can they? I'm calling it now - Lena will have to administer the Super Soldier Serum to James in order to save his life. James will once again be one of Kara's "Super Friends" (ugh), and he and Lena will get back together. Second episode in a row we've gotten a Kara "hands on hips" reference. One of the writers appears to have a fetish, heh.

    We get so few persons of color on this show, why does this one have to be so...shady? Why is she shady? She wanted to give Oscar and Joss private time and came up with an excuse--which she quickly let Cam in on. And then they watched Mary Poppins. Seems perfectly fine to me. Granted, I've only been half-watching this train wreck of a soap, but whenever I see Trina (and she's not on that much), there's always some kind of duplicity. Like misleading parents as to their whereabouts. And didn't she also use phony ID to get the motel rooms? Just saying.
