There was less stupidity last week than the couple of weeks before that. Don't get me wrong, there was still lots of stupidity. There was just . . . less. By a little bit. And there were a couple of good fights, which were awesome. People arguing dramatically about ridiculous situations that will never happen in my regular life is one of the main reasons I love soaps. Well, it's one of the main reasons I used to love soaps. I think the love is gone now, replaced by a kind of melancholy tolerance. But "We mock soaps out of melancholy tolerance. And hate. But mostly melancholy tolerance." is a really shitty slogan and wouldn't fit on our banner.
Aaanyway, GH had a week of episodes that I suppose must be reviewed.
Is there a carefully orchestrated campaign to wear me down and make me feel sorry for Spinelli? First, Sonny -- great man and father that he is -- beat up Spinelli, a dorky man-child about half Sonny's age, without provocation.
You stay classy, Sonny Corinthos. (I adored Maxie telling Sonny off afterwards. Get on your with tiny, bitchy, slightly squeaky self!)
Then, Spinelli was all devastated that didn't have sex with Maxie,
which was sad. So I did start to pity him a bit.
But then I saw his hair and I crept back into the familiar warm embrace of total annoyance.
People, that is INSANE.
