Catch Me, I'm Falling (Even Farther Behind)
Again, we offer our sincerest apologies for the Serial Drama radio silence lately--recent days have been all about recovering from Hurricane Sandy, who wiped out my power for days which left me very cold, very stressed out, very apt to put my makeup for work on completely crookedly, and very much fumbling to catch up on, oh, every single aspect of my life. I hope all of our Northeast readers are safe and sound and well on their way to regaining their pre-Sandy sanity.
After my power was restored and I cranked the heat up as high as it would go while embracing my hair dryer, I had myself a General Hospital marathon, because I wanted to at least know what was going on before diving back into the show this week. And, to be honest, I spent much of the blackout daydreaming about how epic it must be in Port Charles to have AJ back and how the show was firing on all cylinders the week before. All of those things were true and then some, and can we reflect for a minute on how strange it is to devour multiple episodes of General Hospital and NOT search wildly for the number for poison control?!
So imagine my disappointment when the bulk of today's episode was preempted in New York for another Mayor Bloomberg press conference. And then imagine my hand-flailing excitement when the last few minutes of the show aired and included AJ and Monica and ALAN and FLASHBACKS and OHMIGOD, it was a fantastic six minutes of television. Who knows what the rest of the episode could have contained?!
(No, seriously, do any of you know what happened for the majority of that hour? Consider this an open post to talk about today's show or anything from last week that you're dying to discuss. Regular posting will resume soon!)
