Oh, so much to talk about with this little gem of an interview, dear readers. So much. So much that is...utterly confusing and nonsensical. But this is General Hospital and this is a day that ends with "-day," so I guess that is about right.
[GH] is bringing back Skye Quartermaine, the lusciously wicked divorcee played by Robin Christopher
We adore Robin Christopher, but the writing for Skye was consistently terrible (as was the wardrobing), she suffered from Invisible Quartermaine disease more often than not, and main tie to the canvas -- her father -- is dead, so the fact that this is the character the GH writers have decided to bring back is a bit puzzling.
(I greyed-out the portion that makes me most uncomfortable.)
It's hard to write GH without the Qs? So his job has been exceedingly difficult for the last decade or so? Or perhaps he should have been more specific: "It's hard to write GH without killing off at least one Q per sweeps period, so I'm going to start bringing back ones I previously treated as particularly useless so that when I ruin and/or slaughter them, I get less flack from the fans, or at the very least don't have to figure out a way to bring them back as ghosts or talking tumors six months later."
“Every time we drift away from the family, even though we’ve diluted them a bit over the years, it just feels wrong. So we’re looking to build them up again.”
Are we having another penultimate cosmic guffaw moment? "Diluted them a bit"?! Is that what you call the twisted game of "Kill, Write Off, Marginalize" that you've been kicking ass at since Clinton was president, you egomaniacal, myopic dolt? And if it feels wrong, you know what you can do? STOP DOING IT. This is where having a sense of shame comes in handy. Shame needs to make a comeback.
And I will believe Bob Guza is dedicated to building up the Quartermaines just as soon as I become convinced that Lindsay Lohan is really committed to her sobriety and skincare.
