« Maybe They Use Soap, or Go to the Opera? | Main | Disturbia »

July 23, 2007

That'll Teach Me

May I be gauche, and quote myself?  Particularly if it's to make me look foolish?  Great, thanks.

Factual accuracy aside, during these scenes, Maurice Bernard was almost...hot.  I don't know, you guys.  Maybe I'm accidentally on Viagra.  However, if Kate and Sonny hook up while she's all stoned on whatever phony drug she's on that doesn't actually exist, all my Sonny hate will be back in full force. I will give the writers the benefit of the doubt and assume they won't do something that skeevy.  (Yeah, I don't know what's gotten into me, either.)

Sigh.  When will I learn?

They had the decency to miraculously "sober" Kate up from the "Viagra" she was on, but still, skeevy.

Oh, and SoapNet/ABC, thanks ever so much for telling me what was going to happen in the episode in an email that arrived before the show aired. 


There are a few people who try to stay spoiler-free, although I really should start reading them so that I know when to skip this mess of a show altogether.  (And they didn't even limit themselves to one day -- the Jason thing I assume is tomorrow, although really he could be under attack from gunmen on any day.)

But really . . . "gives in to the passion"?  "makes love" (do not EVEN get me started on this, my most hated phrase in all of soapdom)?  Skeevy. 

And I knew from the start that Kate would end up hooking up with Sonny, but they couldn't have dragged it out a bit longer?  You know, like they do on soap operas?

Oh show, why do you suck so?

P.S.  The only slight silver lining is that since they apparently didn't have sex back when they dated as teenagers, they can't have a secret kid.  Thank GOD.


Oooh, you just know that now that you've said it, it will happen. If it's put out there in the soap-iverse, it will materialize within a mere month or so. There probably is a kid and someone was under some type of influence or had hypothermia or whatever, and can't remember "making love" to the father/mother of their baby. I was too horified with my casual viewing today to sit through the entire post-coital conversation (Ah! My eyes! My eyes), but I've watched enough soap to know that anything can be rewritten and spun at any point in time to accomodate the plot.

Aside from that, I'm too pissed about the Brenda recast to watch GH with any emotional attachment. It's purely for the superficiality of watching the hotness of JT, GV, JD and JG.

"P.S. The only slight silver lining is that since they apparently didn't have sex back when they dated as teenagers, they can't have a secret kid. Thank GOD."

or did they??

(i kid)

Oh! But I so wanted Spinnelli to be their secret kid!!! How awesome would it be to know Sonny is being annoyed by Spin EVERY DAY for the rest of his life? This is as close to just desserts we'll ever get as GH fans who hate Sonny.

I have to agree with kitzie - Sonny is touted as being such a GREAT father, it would be a nice change of pace to see him have to interact with Spinnelli (whom he obviously loathes, although I think that stems more from his jealousy that Jason genuinely cares about Spin).

However, I am glad that Kate Howard is not his mother as that would tie her to Sonny forever and I'm still hoping that she will be able to untangle herself from Sonny's universe before she gets sacrificed at the alter of all things good and Mob-esque. I know, I live in a dream world - you'd think I'd know better by now.
