If you caught me on Twitter after I finished up GH, you saw I promised to save my reaction for the blog. So here it is, Jake’s Hit and Run, Day One, what I liked, loved and would have done differently.
I readily admit that my thumb was on the fast forward button during certain scenes. Sorry Brenda (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) and Sonny (Maurice Benard), your honeymoon plans and stupid giggles mean nothing to me. A baby is about to be run down and I wasn’t one of those people who gushed over your nuptials. I also could care less about your baby, Brenda. I did catch the snippet that Suzanne stashed the kid away with a family she met through ASEC; snooze, yawn. Brenda’s child does not interest me if it’s only a means to VMG's probable exit.
Now that I got the crap out of the way, let’s break it down. Steve Burton, Jonathan Jackson, Rebecca Herbst, Laura Wright, Ingo Rademacher, Tony Geary and yes, Chad Duell, great job! Actors do their THING with their eyes and faces. Anyone can spit out some lines. Bow down to Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and those eyes. Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) is starting to give Mr. Burton a serious run for his money. Becky Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) shows true heartbreak like no other. Laura Wright (Carly Jacks) and Ingo Rademacher ‘s (Jax) scenes with Josslyn were fantastic and natural. Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) was fantastic and I would be remiss if I left out Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos III). Mr. Duell is definitely paying attention when playing with the big boys and learning.
While I'm sitting here chewing on my nails, waiting for Toups to post the full ratings for the week of Feb. 21 over at Soap Opera Network, I'll have to settle for an ABC press release for now. According to the Mouse House, General Hospital was the No. 1 program among women 18-49 for the week, tied with CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless at 1.3 in the most coveted demo. This was the first time GH was at the top of W18-49 since Oct. of 2008. Well, it took long enough, but it looks like the return of Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda) and/or the stunt casting of the worst Academy Awards host in history aka James Franco (Franco) finally paid off! For ABC's press release in full keep reading after the jump. READ MORE
