The Final and the Obligatory
I'm way too emotionally exhausted to even think about addressing yesterday's General Hospital so I'm going to the emotionally safe place: The Bold & the Beautiful. Briefly. (To be fair, I was watching GH and Robin before B&B even existed, so it would be harder for B&B to evoke the same emotional response. Especially since it's a show centered around the virginity of a 20-year-old [or whatever she's supposed to be], her idiot boyfriend, and his cheesy wife.)
Months back, I was still naively writing hopeful posts whenever they'd air an episode not revolving around Hope, Liam, and Steffy -- thinking the show was shifting and actually introducing new storylines and getting other characters into the mix. Well, I'm hardened now, dammit! Because of course when other characters show up with other issues, they're only there to serve the jettison of an actor. The last couple of days may have felt like a minuscule amount of balance has been added to the show, but luckily we're no longer optimistic and know full well it all just happened because Brandon Beemer and Lesley-Anne Down have been taken off contract. And thus, Owen and Jackie were reunited just as randomly as they were broken up. This time, instead of Jackie magnanimously passing Owen off to Bridget (and giving Owen no choice in the matter), Bridget magnanimously passed him back to Jackie.
There they are. "Jowen." And they'll tell you that, in case you didn't know.
Well, there it was. And now back to our regularly scheduled programming of a lot of people having the same conversations over and over again about Liam and Hope and Steffy. Omigods will Hope lose her virginity?! This is of national concern, y'all!
It occurred to me that those of you who only come here for the B&B posts may not yet know that we also have a Facebook page. "Like" us there if you're so inclined -- it's a fun place for pictures and announcements and just any everyday shorter reactions to soap episodes or soap news (which of course often includes much hand-wringing and incredulousness) that we might have or that you might have!
