The carnival has brought out the extreme in the GH cast. Actors who generally act well are so over the top they make me want to gag. Maybe it’s because they have no relateable emotions to draw upon. Or maybe it’s not the acting, but the extreme reactions to a small car crash.
But I”m not saying it hasn’t been entertaining. Top unintentionally hilarious moments from today’s episode include:
- A car going about 15 miles an hour mowing down the entire town outside GH
I can’t believe they made us watch this entire montage again. Still, it proved to be even more funny this time with people watching the car drive full on into them without moving. This is one hell of a car. It rammed down two grown men and didn’t stop until it smashed into a ride, and of course killed sinister Andrea Floyd.
- Jason’s long walk of man pain
I know the cinematographers thought this would be artsy. But instead it looked like Jason was walking around aimlessly, while everyone else around him were loosing their effing mind. Maybe he was so upset because he just remembered that Jake existed.
- An over the top demonstration of a person getting electrocuted by touching one of the rides
If you saw this scene, it speaks for itself.
- A rescue worker telling Claudia that the ride disintegrated when the car crashed into the ride
Man, Edward really did have one bad ass sedan. It seems like someone was using their SAT study guide when they wrote today’s episode. The use of this word to describe what happened to that carnival ride is as melodramatic as the rest of the episode.
So I have to admit, being teased by Patrick and Robin’s talk of the fun they had in the locker room that we didn’t get to see coupled with the fact that it was obvious that Johnny was going to be bleeding by the end of these shenanigans has made me pretty cranky.
So maybe this has been the suspenseful, action packed event they were going for and I just missed the mark. Somehow I doubt it.
