Snarky, ass-toot discussion and analysis of what's left of daytime TV, some primetime, and a little dose of reality!
Jasper Jacks is the one that was married to Carly , his first name is Jasper not Jacks Jacks (lol)Jerry is his brother
So damned good to hear from you guys again. I think you have plenty of listeners who hang on your every word. A lot of ur fans have migrated to FB lately, so I see lots of posts on Jordan's FB.Loved Dante and Lulu this week. I thought I was the only one who noticed her splotchy arms. I had read TPTB were going to test her out with Patrick. Hate that idea. Really want to see Lulu/Dante have some happiness and a cute baby.Ashley, you are right on about Starr. She has no chem w/Michael, she hasn't had chem w/anyone, on OLTL or GH. Her character feels false, unlike McBain and Todd. They fit in seamlessly.Gasp, Ashley you called Jessica Pare (Mad Men) a horse face? Sacrilege!Again, wonderful freakin' pod cast, LOVE U Guys!
Ok, I *kind of* like the horsey faced Jessica Pare on Mad Men. She is beautiful, yes, but when she smiles? Neigh!!!!! Mr. Ed wants his profile pic back! Plus she is freakin' boring. I want Don to do something crazy, like sniff glue or have sex with an 80-year old prostitute who is really a man. you know, like the good ol' days.
BTW - Didn't I say Jasper Jacks? :) Guess not!
Ashley, am not able to open the links....did anyone offer any advice about getting it on itunes?
Love love love your podcasts . Best out there .
Good Evening! :-)Lately, I have been keeping up with the second season of “Suits” on USA network. Today, (Sunday) I have seen several episodes of season 1 on CLOO. Do any of you watch this show? If you do, what is the deal with Harvey, Donna and the can opener? Is the audience in on this? Or, have the writers left it up in the air, so far? brtedip.s. For whatever reason, I've been up early enough, lately, to catch the morning repeats of "classic" GH & OLTL...Currently, "Bo" and "Rex" are back in 1968 (in honor of what was the show's 40th anniversary) I miss seeing Robert S. Woods, as my favorite OLTL character.As far as current GH goes, loved Dante's reaction to the news of fatherhood--Excellent!How do all of you about the actress playing "Kristina"? IMHO, I realize this is probably her first major paying gig, and I wish her well. But, she comes off kind of like a cookie, taken out of the oven too soon; she's not quite ready, yet.Maybe, if one of her fellow actors took her under his/her wing, like I understand was the case with Steve Burton mentoring Chad Duel, in the very begining, that might help....
OMG anyone watching Breaking Bad? Walter White has lost all humanity, unbelievable. I love the fact that his life is tanking and he's still trying to be a drug king pin. No conscience, unlike Jesse. Gonna be sorry to see this show go.GH so good right now. I wasn't thrilled w/bringing back Jerry Jacks, but since the SL is being revealed, I am enjoying every second of it.Ashley you are so right about the stupid intense conversations between Liz/Jason/Sam. I think the reason I can't stand Jason is he has no friggin sense of humor, every second w/him is this tortured soul searching bullshit. Ick, no one wants a guy like that. Lighten up for pete's sake.
Brtedi, I agree about Kristina. Trying to like her, but not sure she has the chops. Little Molly acted circles around her last week. Loving Molly and her bf. Also hoping for a Sean/Alexis duo.
Indeed, AZgal, the young lady who plays "Molly" is wonderful, in the role. As an audience, we're probably lucky GH kept her, when they 'let go'the first sorased "Morgan"--who apparently got fired when he did the 'unspeakable'thing of auditioning for a tv pilot, while still w/GH.
Just dropping in to say hi.:DKudos guys, for keeping the show going all this time. I wish I had been that dedicated to listening.
Funny that I came back to hear a show almost 2 hours long that took Ashley several attempts to end. Wasn't I briefly famous for complaining that the show was too long, 4 or 5 years ago? <3A few thoughts on the the debate over my beloved Starr. I don't think she's as good on GH as she was on OLTL; it's a different show with a different mood. OLTL was campy where GH is dark and brooding. Kristen A. is great at acting sad/miserable, but lousy at being angry. She needed to be angry (at Sonny) to fit into the GH storyline, and I wasn't buying it. The fact that they ruined her happy ending from OLTL didn't help either. (Why bring her on at all, really? So that Todd had someone to be around?) Putting her with Michael was inevitable from the first second...I think they needed to half-ass putting them together, otherwise, Starr would have had nothing to do in Port Charles for too long.Ultimately, though, I think the reason Starr is on this show is simply because Ron C. can't help himself. He was there as a scriptwriter when she started on OLTL, and watched her grow up...he probably thinks of her as a daughter. So, he was more than a little biased about who should come over to GH.In other news, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I'm enjoying the Bill Bell soaps right now. It's probably because I only started watching this year and have no clue what history was ruined. Say what you will about Maria Arena Bell, but at least she kept the Y&R vets front and center. JFP will certainly ruin this... oh well, I could certainly find other things to do with the time if the show starts to suck even more.Finally, on a personal note...sorry, Jordan, that business is so slow for you. If I lived in New York I'd look you up - Lord knows I'm out of shape.
holy cow, WMD, how ya doing dude! I agree w/you about Starr. Too front and center on GH, too fast. I can see how that would be off putting to GH fans. I am loving YR right now. Loving Phyllis and Kevin. B&B can't get into. WTF did Scott Clifton do to his hair?! Also enjoying DOOL. None of the soaps are perfect but for the most part, they are a great diversion from the trials of RL, which is why I watch.
WMBDB!! (As Jordan Hudson likes to say.) How the hell are you! Love the ass-toot commentary, even if we had to wait six years for it! ;)As far as GH? I AM NOT AMUSED! (My partner JH would wholeheartedly disagree.) I SO WISH we were able to do weekly podcasts. The shows are fulled with little Julie Hanan Craputhers gifts every day. So sad.Of note - Trey has hairy arms and a flabby body.Sam can work up a boatload o' tears for her dead baby, but Mom gets barely a concerned look on her deathbed? (And yes, the actress that plays Molly TORE IT UP in those scenes.)Poor Josslyn - (the actress) her acting teacher must have had the day off when they shot those scenes of her "dying." Oy.Dr. Keenan? I'd like to see an "act-off" between him and Josslyn. Bet I know who'd win.Starr would get a big, FAT F from Jordan's acting teacher! That whole "staring off into the distance to try and cry" thing? Not great, darlin'. You got another person in the scene with you. Maybe you should pay attention to 'em.That p*ssy Johhny Zaccara - the actor and the character? Oy. Schmacting his way through those "poor, poor Josslyn" scenes-I felt a little bile in my throat every time he (tried to) work up a tear. I think he has the same acting teacher as Kristen Aldersson.The prayer for Alexis and Josslyn led by Sean? I love Sean, but that fat bastard Johnny Zaccarra praying? Wiuth Starr and Michael? Over a fake kid actor? Really?Poor Nancy Lee Grahn. The first day in that hospital bed, she actually looked dead. I had to check the fake monitor to make sure her heart was still beating.) With her hot new boyfriend looking on? Pobrecita. She must have tipped the hair and makeup people pretty handsomely for that "natural" makeup she got when she woke up the next day. Jerry Jacks. Oy. In know I have no history with the show, and when I see him on my screen twirling his mustache, I'm glad. Must we, Ron? I know you like "camp," but Libidozone was a loser and always will be. Saving graces? Patrick, Patrick and more Patrick. Loved Lulu and Dante's "we're preggers" stuff. Still love Tracy Quartermaine, and in "strong like" with Luke and Anna. Thoughts people? Am I alone? Shadow?
Hey y'all love your pod/blog and try never to miss one. Robert woods and Jessica Leccia will be filming a new web series this weekend that I can't wait for. Check it out at wwwthegrovetheseries.com. I believe Hillary B Smith is directing it.
I'm about 4 or 5 episodes behind on GH right now...but I really hope that Ron C. doesn't mentally equate Mitch Laurence and Jerry Jacks. Mitch was true evil, and could act it. Jerry is just another moustache-twirling soap villain, a la Robert Gardner under Chuck Pratthole. (I've loved the "moustache-twirling villain" metaphor ever since I heard it on the PVP!)Having camp on GH would be good if it were a campy show. It's not. That's where the other stories are working better.Oh yeah...please tell me this has been resolved since last Friday, but...WHERE THE F*CK IS MONICA?!?
I don't know anything about how to load files to iTunes but I can tell you that I was able to download your podcast to my computer where it has been saved to my iTunes as an album and I have been able to sync it to my iPod. It's a workaround for your listeners but I can imagine how frustrating it must be for you.I am excited to listen!!
As soon as I get my newer equipment, which could be any day now, I fully look forward to downloading pvp podcasts--again. :-)
While the big story itself was a dud, the day-to-day episodes have been good. And as much as I like Kristen Alderson, she's MUCH better at comedy than heavy drama.Still haven't listened to the podcast, because I didn't know there was a new episode! Eff you, iTunes!!!
I had to post this somewhere... during 9/26's GH, I found myself throwing pretzels at my TV screen.ELIZABETH WOULD NOT DO THIS!!! What are you smoking, Ron?! It's a rather unwelcome twist in a rather tiresome plot.My only regret is that my pretzels did not hit Elizabeth dead-on. I cannot even throw across a 12' room onto a 52" screen. lol....
I missed your podcasts! I need to catch up on GH cause I've been on and off watching but I love listening to you guys. Jordan I'm sorry about the tough time you've been having and Ashley I'm sorry but I almost cried at you describing your vacay from hell. Hope to hear more from you guys-dancingelf88
Hello friends! I'll say this - whoever sponsors the new 'All My Children', I'm buying the shit out of whatever they're selling. Possibly a tad embarrassing for me because I'm a dude, but I'll deal with it. Douches for everyone!? I'm trying to write more again. Busy year! I tweet in spurts. You know what I mean. I've been posting highlights of the Prospect Park deal on our FB page & tweeting. I'll write more as details become available after I wake up. Be well! Happiest of New Years!
I agree about Jessica Pare. Mostly attractive with her mouth closed. Like she's bobbing for crab apples every time her lips part. When she's half naked in Don'a apartment it's like "Hey, baby...". Then there's a closeup and I think of Mr. Ed. Did they have head gear in the 60s? Zou bisou!
Kristen Alderson is the Ryan Lavery of #GH. I FF every time she's on the screen. Kristina is the Randi of #GH. You guys are so polite. She's terrible. More bland than the way Ashley's talks impersonating Greenlee. How could a mobster be threaded by little Starr or have a daughter so sawdust bland? I'm not crazy about the OTT Jack's Faison Duke stuff. I don't have much history with GH so I don't carry much sentimental attachment or preconceived notions about anybody. What I love is the Pine Valleyesque stuff with Monica and Tracy. Loved Heather. Spinellie and Ellie almost make the whole show for me. Longtime fans think Spixie are destiny. I'm totally rooting for Spin-Ellie though. Having said that I haves loves the terrific Spixie dialogue. This Maxie is crazy good. I love Anna, but she needs a new guy. Luke? Ick. Duke? Creeps me out. I cant shake his AMC stint. Anna is gold though. Carly I like. Sonny I get. Johnny? I don't know. He's a hideous character but he amuses me. Patrick, Brit and Sabrina are good but they should tone down the Ugly Betty bullshit. It's like she's Clark Kent. Take off the glasses and obviously gorgeous. Felix is no Epiphany. Adore Olivia but enough wih he ESP. LiZ has nothing to do. Kind of don't get all the hoopla about her. Stephen Lars? They should keep him around the hospital. Put it this way. Historically I've never been able to sit they 10 minutes of GH. I started watching to stay close to you guys and stick it to ABC. Now I really enjoy it for the most part. It's clever. Good dialogue. Smart with stuff like Dante and Lulu. Not too keystone in court and medical procedure. I think it's been a valiant team effort and remarkable compromise for ABC fans. They won me alone with the occasional nods to pine Valley. Proof is this: I watch it every day.
And I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed that goiter around Robin's neck! In her defense she's been in a drug induced coma for a year so maybe she's just retaining fluid. Kind of like a cankle.
Happy New Year All!Will AMC and OLTL really be back? Prospect Park is promising http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/07/one-life-to-live-online-all-my-children_n_2425613.html?ir=TV Will this bring Ashley and Jordan back to us? I sure hope so.
The good news just keeps rolling in: Genie Francis is returning to GH! http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/01/08/genie-francis-returns-general-hospital/
damn, havent been here in ages. I loved the podcast, you guys dom't miss a beat, you were both ON and you two have this chemistry that is irresistible and charming.
OK Shadow, I do agree w/you about Starr Manning and her equine features. She ain't great but she's nowhere as bad as Ryass. He was nails on a chalkboard, she is less so. I do FF thru a lot of her scenes w/Michael, they are not a compelling couple. Hope Jordan doesn't read this!
Every time I saw her during Christmss I thought of that song 'Dominick The Christmad Donkey". Her Haw.
Prospect Park made a deal with WGA! Huge! http://m.deadline.com/2013/01/prospect-park-closes-deal-with-wga-clearing-way-for-production-on-amc-oltl/
Marlene McPherson. Uh..Okay..Let's see who gets the position of Co-Headwriter. Tie loop on finger to remind self Agnes is consulting. #AMC
