  1. Guess I picked a good time to part way with my cable -- not that there aren't many other ways to catch up - but it appears that the regime is satisfied with highlighting Sonny and Jason (and Carly and Sam) who are truly despicable violent felons. How do the TPTB expect folks - who go out and try to earn a living and/or raise a family - relate to people whose chosen career is to prey on people who are down on their luck is beyond me. This soap opera bears little resemblance to the soap opera called General Hospital that I started watching in the '70s. I thought that there was a recent positive change afoot - but bringing back thug Jason just cemented their intentions. It's especially exasperating because there are enough solid actors on the show - amongst a bloated cast - that getting rid of the Corinthos family - wouldn't give the soap much pause.
  2. If you aren't outraged . . .you aren't paying attention.
  3. She's still in high school but what are Brooklyn's and Sam's excuses? Can't stand any of those three. They generate NO energy. Both the actresses and the writers have generated no excitement as to why the audience should waste its time with any of these three characters. Speaking of waste, did they really waste Jane Elliot's visit to raise some interest in Brooklyn? Just after Julian got rid of having to deal with Brad (after being stuck in the boring Oscar story) who was in a constant state of panic for 18 months, he is going to get stuck with babysitting another subpar character, bratty Brooklyn. Poor WdV. Then there's another yawner -- Michael - who today announces that he is going to abide by the law right now because he is currently on the right side of the law. Huh? {{{Bowl of Moss}}}
  4. I am going to enjoy Ava and Elizabeth in scenes together. Meanwhile, Welcome back - big bowl of moss (that acts as a much needed piece of catnip during Carly/Sonny kitchen scenes)!
  5. For this fan, it appears that we have arrived at the junction where we recently are going backwards led by some of the more powerful/persuasive folks behind the scenes that are calling the shots - who are only in their jobs because they owe some type of loyalty to either maurice bernhard or to whomever has been supporting him. Sonny was able to hide behind Luke (and Robert). It is a soap opera called 'General Hospital' that spends its resources and five decades of good will on glorifying really despicable characters (e.g., Corinthos family) that have no saving grace (like doing something positive in employment - e.g., doctors, nurses, cops). Pointing my finger straight at the person who rehired back SBu to reprise the role of Jason the enforcer and got rid of Billy Miller. Sam and Jason's fans don't seem to be helping the ratings much. Might as well stick a fork in this soap opera if they don't get rid of the Corinthos family. ETA: It's not like I don't watching a good villain (waves to Maura West), but at least provide a villain that is either good looking or can act - preferably both.
  6. Stunning how the execution of the jailhouse/warehouse scenes were superior than that of the reveal of Jonah. SHUT UP CARLY. So now the audience is supposed to be OK with Sonny and Jason because stopping merely one shipment trumps a daytime shooting in a bar in Brooklyn and the near-fatal shooting of a mayor of their home turf? It's past time that Sonny and Carly (and Jason and Sam) go on vacation (preferably a cruise).
  7. The character seems to be continually portrayed as the victim who never does anything wrong and gathers tons of pity. His propping of Sonny and his entourage (yesterday he propped up Spinelli 🤮) just makes me wish for his demise (not for bad things to happen to people/things around him).
  8. The bus will be less painful (and much quieter) than what's coming his way from Carly.
  9. Ok show got it. Relocation to Portland because of Julian.
  10. That painting in Sonny's office looks like it depicts the contents of someone who got sick at both ends. Puts me in the proper mood to watch MB and SBu's scenes.
  11. I will be rooting* for a guy that has kept Jason off my screen for five years and is repulsed by Spinelli/Sam/Jason. *'rooting' in the sense that I have the capability of rooting for any human that commits violence for convenience or better standing.
  12. I did appreciate how one of the writers in yesterday's episode, via Ned, inferred that ELQ is not currently a publicly traded company by not mentioning stockholders. There's no way with that Michael Corinthos Quartermaine's relationship with Sonny would be viewed as anything but a material risk by an independent auditor during a required audit of a publicly traded company that could be not overcome with any additional safeguards. It's just so absurd (and sad) that Michael doesn't even use the Quartermaine name and remains the head of the Quartermaine biz. Sonny and Jason wake up each morning and spend their days intimidating (at best) people for a living. As someone who started (re) watching in 2012, I just can't fathom how far this show has gotten from its roots. This week while the good mother Sam was lecturing a surgeon/doctor (just coming off of the graveyard shift SAVING lives at the hospital) how one of the world's top law enforcement officers was just the same as her murderous thug of a husband was beyond the pale. This mob stuff is such a waste of resources and a self-inflicted ratings killer. The Mayor of Port Charles was SHOT but the previews seems to be more concerned about adding cast (Spinelli) and Jason/Sonny's standing in the mob world. More cognitive dissonance from a soap opera called General Hospital.
  13. Yeah. Just watched the episode on abc.om. Laura (of Laura and Luke fame) received around five minutes of screentime despite just having emergency surgery and near death. Yet it was the almighty violent and vile Corinthos family received the most attention - caring not a whit about anything except themselves. Wasn't Luke Sonny's friend? How come Sonny didn't ask about Laura? (rhetorical question there). Sonny threatened another woman. It really doesn't matter if an episode is missed. Until the stain of the Corinthos family is removed, it will be the 'Same old. Same old'.
  14. So the episode is not on ABC demand in my area and was lied to again as ABC was airing an infomertial at 2:30-3:30 am as was promised by a local affiliate. ☹️ Making me think twice about keeping cable.
  15. In viewing areas that had the Senate on instead of GH, there was a scroll that the episode would be available on demand later BUT it would also screen on from 2:30-3:30 AM.
