I have noticed a recent pattern developing and I find it distressing - - more often than not, my commentary on General Hospital lately seems to be comprised mainly of lists of things that I do not understand. They are long lists.
From character destruction to story repetition to blatant Emmy-pandering, Port Charles is awash in the absurd and the only way that I can make order out of the chaos is to write it all down in comforting list-style format. Unfortunately, my lists are probably not all that exciting for anyone else to read. But heck, I figure that many of my readers are still watching General Hospital, so they must be pretty forgiving folk to begin with.
I apologize in advance, but I will be doing it again - -
First of all, is anyone else as confused as I am by a promo for General Hospital without Sonny, Jason, or Carly featured prominently? (Possible Spoiler Alert: It goes without saying that Jason will eventually be saving Robin from asphyxiating in her basement on his way home from pulling a toddler from a well and rescuing a kitten from a tree)
Second of all, I thought Lisa was simply "misunderstood" as was the dearly departed Claudia, what's up with Johnny's sudden change in thinking (besides writer laziness, I mean)?
Third of all, why does the unhinged jiltee always decide to make the jilter "pay" by kidnapping/maiming/offing the jilter's wife/fiancee/golden retriever, etc? Why doesn't she ever make him actually pay by kidnapping/maiming or offing him? I've always wondered.
Fourth of all, what ever happened to Terrell and the plan to seduce Robin away from Patrick, did Guza see a squirrel and get distracted?
Fifth of all, "the tables WILL BE TURNED" ABC promo man? What does that even mean in morally-inverted Port Charles, another two-week stint at Shady Brook?
Sixth of all, it seems a shame to write Lisa into a corner so soon after Anthony Zacchara returned to town, they could have been the next power-mad (emphasis on the Brazil-nut) couple to wreak havoc scheming together.
Alas, I fear that Robin and Patrick's spike in screentime will be short-lived. Oh well, I'll take what I can get on General Mobspital.
Anyone taking bets on how this one plays-out?
I'll put my money on the morgue.
It's been like six weeks since Jake was run-over by Luke, five weeks since Suzanne slit Theo's throat, and at least three weeks since Morticia Adams in a blonde wig blew Brandon's brains out, so you know that Guza's trigger-finger has got to be getting itchy . . .
