This message has been brought to you by… ‘Peapack Street’… like Sesame Street, only less entertaining. W-T-F! I’ve gotta say, I’ve held out hope for GL like so many other viewers. I’ve waited, and waited, and waited. ‘It HAS to get better’, I thought, ‘it can’t get any worse’. HA! You can never say those words out loud. You can’t even THINK them! The gods of daytime will hear your challenge and realize that you have no idea how capable they are of making things gut-wrenchingly worse (OH! Another ‘G’ word)!
Grady’s attempt at seducing Vanessa made my skin crawl. The man has already escaped prosecution after killing Tammy. Now he’s kidnapped, bound and gagged Lizzie, and is off trying to seduce Vanessa. What is it with mature women and GL’s writers? They made fools of that pack of jackals following Alan the Prophet around Springfield – Alan’s true believers, who were funding his lifestyle and paying his attorney’s fees. Now Grady is making a practice of following women around town offering his services <GROAN! <- Yes, another ‘G’ word.
The one decent moment in the past two weeks, in my perspective, was the Cooper family coming together for the ‘last time’ in Harley’s house. The scene was touching, but also sad because Gus AND Harley are gone.
I wish the writers would recast the character and bring her back. I loved BE in the role, but I’d accept a GOOD recast.Nothing feels the same about this show any more. There’s one one scene I look at and think, ‘AH! Classic GL’. Not one. It’s not just because of Gus and Harley (I liked, not loved, them as a couple).
It’s everything. The look, the scenes, the characters feel different. Something is missing with this show and I don’t know if the current PTB have the ability to help us get it back.
Luckily, I still have Days of Our Lives. I will ignore the Sami-EJ situation, pretend they’re not even on the show, as I continue watching Days make it’s way back to the show it use to be.
Abe Carver as Mayor? LOVE that. I hope it really does happen. This character has been an integral part of the show for years and the writers have had little for the man to do other than fend off Stefano Dimera in order to stop him from reclaiming a perennially psychologically frail and emotionally deceptive Lexie. I think DAYS is certainly on the right track by having Abe and Lexie work out their relationship. (View the YouTube clip below of Abe catching Lexie in the act with yet ANOTHER man – his adult son with another woman being the man she most recently cheated with, last.
Daytime writers are so use to splitting couples up and having them move on to new relationships that it’s hardly worth becoming emotionally invested in any couple, as a viewer. With Abe working toward a position of power in Salem, how long will it be before the Dimeras find a way to draw Abe in? Lexie can only fight off her father for so long, and then Stefano is back to his old tricks, making her a pawn in yet another of his doomed-to-fail plans.
