Exhausted by another week of the show currently masquerading as General Hospital? Want to be reminded of how seriously, staggeringly, immeasurably better this show used to be? Read on.
(I know what you're thinking -- Dude, you're just now getting around to recapping the SOAPNet Christmas marathon? The answer is yes. You have my permission to be disappointed in me, or amazed by my slackerdom. As my penance, I've provided extra screencaps. Plus this post will be almost entirely free of bitchiness. Except about Miranda. And Tom. And maybe some hairstyling and fashion issues. There is a limit to how nice I can be, even when trying to curry favor. Sorry.)
It’s Jax and Brenda’s first Christmas together! (That “Eeeeeee!” you hear is Mallory, at the mere mention of Jax and Brenda.) Jax brought Brenda a whole box full of Christmas decorations from Australia, which he bursts into his penthouse with, forcing her to scurry and hide something (presumably his gift). Brenda hadn’t gotten a tree because she wasn’t sure Jax would be back in time, but of course he would, because he’s dreamy. So they’re off to get a tree. Jax jokes that he’s going to cut down one in Edward Quartermaine’s yard. Ooooh, the Jax/Q family rivalry! Remember when there were rivalries on this show that didn’t involve hitmen and “coffee importing”? Sigh.
Query: Why did I find Ingo (and Jax) so damned hot when he had outfits and a haircut like this?
The draw of an Australian accent is a remarkable thing. It is truly a wonder how I managed to maintain my Mel Gibson hate for so many years (long before he publicly became an epic ass, I mean).
