I got into soaps gradually as I watch noon news when my kids were babies...so first Ryan's Hope, then AMC, then OLTL, then GH, until I was spending 3.5 hours watching TV.... oh yes, also Edge of Night..yikes, back in the late 70's. So I was relatively late to GH compared to RH and AMC.
Anyway, to today's episode...What the heck??, they are really making Johnny unredeemable....he shot out the tires, convinced Connie to tell Sonny it was her and that she'd set Sonny up, so Sonny wouldn't forgive Kate (yeah, right), shot his grand/father first in a struggle and then to death in cold blood... On the plus side he feels terrible, especially about the death of the child, and is trying to make it up to Starr somehow...
So I'm guessing Johnny, and his grand/father (who--the actor that is-- I loved back in the day as a sort of scruffy undercover cop--he looks nearly the same now) are being written out. So Tracey is free of that marriage--sort of---will she have to wait 7 years to declare him dead if Johnny hides the body? will she think Luke did it?
If I didn't think Roger Horvath tends not to commit to long contracts as Todd I'd think the writers are responding to the chemistry between Todd and Carly.
Wow PWS :wow!! I haven't had a chance to watch the last two epi's yet, so I was wondering how they were going to resolve the whole "Connie or Johnny" thing. I'm definitely gonna make time to watch M-W's epi's tonight :)! I really like the pacing of the show since Valentini took over. There are stories that are not being rushed but played out more slowly...Sam/Jason/John and "the baby", Starr/Micheal....but then there are other arcs that are moving really quickly and keep you tuning in. Used to be there were times when I couldn't get around to watching the show during the week, and have no time on the weekend, so I'd just delete the entire week and read a synopsis of what I missed. But recently, I haven't skipped a single episode because there's stuff going on every day. I will be so disappointed if they cancel now that GH is finally getting back on track!!
:lol Well, having written what I did, I'm watching now and Johnny goes to move the body and Anthony's eyes pop open and he gasps! Johnny emptied a gun into him practically. Either they were blanks or he is a terrible shot--not worthy to be a crime lord! :)
Or he's hallucinating....???
Maybe Anthony just wears a Kevlar jumpsuit 24/7. He does have a lot of enemies! :lol
I've been watching this show since I was a kid. My babysitter watched it, so it was on after school. I remember right when Laura first came to town, before Luke. I vividly remember Laura and Scotty's honeymoon in Mexico. I had such a crush on him! I remember Diana and Jeff and Alan and Lesley.....I remember arranging my summer around Luke and Laura on the island. They showed L&L on MWF, I think, so we all got out of the pool from 2-3 on those days to watch!
I'm trying not to think too much about this new talk show nonsense. I'm going to try to enjoy the show while it's on. Since SoapNet is gone from my cable line-up, I'm not able to see all the episodes. I know they're on Hulu, but I never get around to watching them there.
ok, Maxi's prison "make-over"??? silly stuff...
