Because I am very ego-centric, I am choosing to believe that the show heard my complaints and decided to turn things around this week. I admit, Monday was practically a perfect episode. It seemed to go on forever (in a good way!) and I don’t remember the last time this show gave me butterflies. Kuddos!
My co-blogger covered most of my praise (Sam and McBain 4-EVA!), but my favorite part was probably Todd’s reaction to Carly and Johnny making out, mostly because it mirrors my own so well:
TODD: *gagging noise* Sorry, I threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Heh. Despite his history, and his current actions… and myself, I kind of, sort of love him.
The rest of the week, although not as stellar, didn’t consist much of Sonny, so I would give it an overall positive evaluation.
Although the cops couldn’t seem to take the time to search the mysterious abandoned cabin that Luke has been stashed in, they do seem 110% more effective with Anna at the helm. Despite the convoluted mess that Anthony Zacharra’s death has become, she is onto Johnny and I have hopes that eventually I won’t have to see him walking around town trying to “redeem” himself in idiotic ways. Oh, Johnny. The fact that I used to love you makes me hate you a million times more for the asshole you’ve become.
On the not so happy-making side of town: we are still getting the extreme enjoyment of hearing Jason feel sorry for himself. Jeez, he just can’t understand why not supporting his wife through her rape and pregnancy and then coming to her after the baby has “died” and saying he wanted to be part of her life and then running around town moping about her not forgiving him with the snap of his fingers wouldn’t get them back together. Make me swoon, people!
But you know what is making me swoon? Patrick “I’m moody and brooding” Drake. (Let me console you with my lady parts, Patrick! Sorry, too revealing?) Ahem. Like T, I too am not keen on more drug addiction stories, but at least it gets him out of the house and gives him more angsty material. So I will be satisfied for now.
Also in the positive column: Starr and Michael and TJ and Molly. Let’s hear it for romance on a soap opera! Go figure! There have been times when Starr and Michael have made me squirm a bit, but in both of these cases, the direction has been focusing a lot on hand touches and side glances and that is my wheel house. Non-verbal romance FTW! They are both so cute and adorable that it melts my cold, cold heart. I actually look forward to seeing more of them. What in the world is happening to me?
