I figure if the showrunners aren't going to put any effort into moving storylines forward, I'm not obligated to pretend to care about the little bit of that that actually happened this week. Plus, there were pretty dresses! And other than shiny objects and cute boys, pretty dresses are like the most distracting things ever. Which is something the powers that be at GH should learn, because maybe some prettier dresses would divert attention from the fact that their writing makes absolutely no sense and that they're destroying the good things they had left.
I know what you're thinking: How hard is it to do something better than General Hospital these days? But traditionally, possibly the only show on television with worse fashion than Days has been Cops, so the fact that it is currently outperforming GH in this arena is actually quite stunning. Seriously, there were several years in the 80s and 90s when every female character on DOOL wore polyester outfits and suntan pantyhouse and flesh-colored Naturalizer pumps every day -- and that includes the teenagers. Plus I'm pretty sure as recently as a year ago there was a epidemic of Mom jeans. Anyway, things on the fashion front are looking good in Salem! Which is good, since the show is otherwise regressing into seven-week long conversations and chemistry-less couples.
