Head? Meet Desk.





A GH reference. In the last episode. Half Wit. (With the amazing and genius and incomparable David John Matthews in a starring role......Life is schweeeeeeeet!)


Anyhoodle, House feigns brain cancer to get into a test study that copes with chronic pain. He fakes his labs and his alias is Luke N. Laura.

This, my GHers, is a reference to the famous Super Couple who, back in the 80s, hit the cover of Time Magazine. Luke Spencer and Laura (8,000,000 last names I couldn't even begin to remember but I think she went by Weber.

Le sigh.

I know it's been a dry spell here on the blog but I can't help that TIIC over at ABC Daytime wouldn't let FOX play in their sandbox.

A Credible GH Reference! Whee!

Finally! A credible GH reference on House! Wheeeeeee!

For those who have seen "Son of a Coma Guy", I'm sure you'll remember the scene in which Wilson goes to the casino to give House an alibi while nefarious activities take place in the hotel room.

Wilson's idea of the alibi is a good one...he makes an idiot of himself trying to pick up a woman at the Roulette wheel (who clearly did not want to be picked up) and then tells her his room number anyway. However, he pretends he can't remember it and yells at "House" who is playing slots some distance away. "House" yells back the number.

Thereby covering both Wilson and House for the time of.....oh, whatever it is that goes on in that hotel room.....if you don't know I'm not going to be the one to spoil you.

We come to find out that House has actually remained behind with Gabe up in the room. Wilson, cleverly, found a look-a-like, gave him the cane and yelled at him. It was dark enough and busy enough and far enough away that he actually quite resembled House.

Well, "Fake House" as he's called on IMDb, was played by Johnathan Strait who played a magician on General Hospital!

Whining is SO unbecoming.

I'm whining again.

Only because I'm really at a loss about what to do. GH has suddenly become quite good (with some glaring exceptions) but there have been utterly no House references and, as discussed to death, there have been no references the other direction, either.

First of all, the idjits at ABC daytime didn't see fit to give "House" the rights and second of all (at least for the next few days) we're in hiatus. It's been a sloooooooow GH/House summer.

I've just finished watching series one of Sandbaggers (Roy Marsden is so YOUNG! LOL And the quality is CRAP!).....great, great show, though. (I so saw what was going to happen to Laura a mile off....Burnside was much too happy.)

Just to quickly recap the important stuff on GH in the hopeful happenstance that we get a House/GH reference some day....Here goes.

Diego ("Alfredo" from Humpty Dumpty) and Lulu conspired to break Dillon and Georgie up. Lulu lied to Dillon and told him that Georgie and Diego had an affair. He believed her (?!) and slept with her...taking her virginity in the process. Lulu has now discovered she's pregnant and they are actually handling a discussion of abortion like adults. (?!) The Quartermaines won't permit it. Nikolas and Liz are noncommittal but supportive. Lucky is freaking out. (More on him in a second.) Actually, Nikolas had a great scene yesterday as he told Liz that he's kinda siding on Lulu's getting the abortion. He says he knows what it was like growing up unwanted and he would prefer that Lulu wait until she's prepared to be a parent.

The ensemble reactions and characterizations are actually kinda cool.

I do have two shallow fashion statements about Nikolas, though. Tyler Christopher? I love you, babe. I do. But, you have a nagging problem with mucus when you get emotional. Con the wardrobe/prop dudes into giving you a Princely monogrammed handkerchief. Second, for the past few episodes....while you look fab in that pink shirt....you've got to lose the sweat stains under the arms. a) That is unbecoming on a prince and b) that is unbecoming on anyone.

Lucky finally got busted for his Vicodin habit and is in NA trying to kick it. (Which is why he's freaking out about Lulu's "condition"....he's a little overwhelmed at the moment.)

Blessedly, we had a break from Jax (Ingo Rademacher was renegotiating his contract) and Carly (vacation?) Man, that was much needed.

They returned yesterday and I can't say I'm happy but I'll run with it.

Sonny is in therapy and is taking his meds. He's turning into a "nicer, kinder" Mob Boss. Right.

In a surprise twist, yesterday Dr. Lainey (I lurve it when Benard blows his line and calls her that) announced to Sonny that someone broke into her office and stole all of her notes on him. Yikes.

Jason and Sam might be getting back together. (I'm cool with that. She's a horribly flawed character and he's a hitman with a God complex but for some strange reason that works for me.)

Alexis (LOVE!) has stage two lung cancer and may die. She confided in Jason yesterday and he was just wonderful...so I think they are setting up a "Okay, you really are a good guy. You can date my daughter" moment.

C'est tout!

Man, it has been a quiet summer, hasn't it?!

Jade. It's a lovely shade of green.

Jeez, I'm so jaded by this show. I swear.

There were some House references this week that were such broad reaches that I don't even have the heart to blog about them. Lots of "dry swallowing Vicodin" by Lucky and some vague "He's a genius but a jerk" comments about Patrick Drake.

But, still.

I'm bummed that GH (while daytime is bitching about being on its last legs) couldn't pony up and give "House" (the number one hit on FOX since "24") some credit.......


No wonder ABC soaps are dying a sad death.

Wake up and smell the Prime Time, people.

You work WAY too hard not to.

Sam and Reek. I'm so disappointed.

There is even MORE nothing to report on GH than before. Aside from the fact that both Alexis and Jason see Sam (Jason's angsty lover) and her FATHER Ric (her mother, Alexis', husband) gettin' it on.

Oh Lord.

Seriously. My stars. Why am I watching this shite?

It's just vile.

Sunday, July 30, 2006

And so it goes...

There really is no news.

Emily sucks harder than ever. The actress is just embarassing and should go back to being a WalMart checkout girl where she was supposedly "discovered".

Good lord.

Other than Lucky dry swallowing Vicodin we're being treated to the unbelievably handsome Dr. Drake dealing with an AIDS crisis.

Keeps me happy and this way I don't have to watch the agonizing crap that's called grays anatomy. hork

Blogger? Won't you be kind?


I've had the hardest time with Blogger recently.

There really is nothing new on the GH front. We've been spinning our wheels with the WTD?John storyline and Sonny's weird descent into......I have no idea what.......weirdness.


I have NO Earthly idea what Benard is going for but....okay.....just kill Emily as soon as humanly possible, please. You have an excuse now. You're mentally ill. Just take her right out and claim insanity. I promise I'll back you up.

On Friday, we had Hydrocodone Addicted Lucky try and make a "bust" that Leez asked Jason to set up. It went horribly wrong (duh) but it was someone Jason wanted taken out anyway and he shot over the unsuspecting and unknowing Lucky's shoulder.

Gee. That should work out GREAT. [/sarcasm]

Just a quick catch up.

Emily still sucks like a Hoover. She's an idiot and I loathe her.To the point where, just yesterday, I said to Best Friend, aghast, "I think I like ~Leez~ more than her!?"

I was momentarily stunned by my revelation.


Natalia Livingston needs a breath coach. She needs a wardrobe person who doesn't hate her. And Emily needs a complete rewrite. She makes no sense whatsoever and Livingston can't pull it off.

Now, mind you, Leez has been completely rewritten and it seems to work for her character. She started out as the bitchy leather wearing skank until she was raped. We listened to her whine for two years and then she became the Angel of Port Charles. (Until there was a momentary pschysophrenic bit with Courtney falling in love with Jason. Leez felt that Jason was "hers"---wha?--and devolved into her old self for a minute or two.....but then back to Pollyanna she went.)

In the current plot, after much fiddling around, what we have now is that more and more people know about Baby John's true paternity. Carly, Jax, Maxie and Robin. Hmm. We see where that's headed.

Lulu and Diego are hell bent on breaking Georgie and Dillon up. Georgie and Dillon, oblivious to anything but their jealousy (not anticipating a conspiracy) are working on a divorce.

The main plot is a sad if not predictable one. Sam is recovering from brain surgery and Alexis wants her to move into their new house.....Skye's old set......as her daughter. Or, as Alexis says it, "Daw-der." hee I can't complain because the way she says it gives her such conviction that you've gotta stand up for Motherhood, Apple Pie and America.

Sam wants to go back to Jason but he's doing the martyr thing, "I'm just too dan-ger-ous!"Lots of tears ensue.

Everyone is turning in a great performance, though.

Meanwhile, Sonny is doing some weird version of BiPolar disease wherein he's alternating between manic highs and lows and some sort of inexplicable anger management problem.

That's it!

Oh, Dr. Drake is a frelling HOTTIE and is a cross between McDreamy (so I've been told) and Greg House. He and Robin ~finally~ got it on and it was truly romantic and hilarious at the same time. :-) Yay, sex!

Laurie's Embarrassment? NO!?

Your intrepid reporter ended up in a dark room with Hugh Laurie for a good 3 hours the other night...along with about 150 of his ~other~ best friends.

Go over to www.televisionwithoutpity.com or www.bravotv.com and figure it out.

The only reference to General Hospital came when Mr. Lipton, the interviewer, asked Mr. Laurie if House had any "daytime" obsessions. Laurie slid down in his chair, put his hand over his eyes, and giggled out a muffled, "Yes." [beat] "General Hospital." [beat] "He watches soaps."

Now. I take issue with that.

Soap opera actors are the hardest working guys in the business and for Laurie, who's always moaning about how hard he works on House.....to belittle the soaps that way.....just rankled.

But, that's quite okay, sir.

The rest of the interview was fascinating.

As my Montreal friends say, 'Ci beaucoup!

GH Ketchup and Two Reverse References to House

Quick GH catch up, anyone?

Maxie discovered the paper that says Nikolas is really Baby John's father. Rather than tell her crushee Nikolas, she decides to blackmail Jax. So far she's anonymous but she has enlisted Coleman's (~sigh, Coleman~) newest little partner in crime, Diego ("Alfredo" from the House episode "Humpty Dumpty") to do her dirty work.

Jax tells Carly that he wants to go straight to Nikolas and take away the strange blackmailer's power because he's tired of being Port Charles' easiest blackmail pushover. Carly puts the immediate ixnay on atthay idea.

Meanwhile, there is some Mission Impossible rip-off crap going on on Monkey Island but suffice to say it's bringing out some fun performances from Emmy winning Tony Geary as Luke (congrats!), the unbearably handsome Tristan Rogers as Scorpio and Emma Samms as Holly. Dillon and Lulu are there.....and there's some weird, squicky sex appeal going on between them but....whatever. Hopefully it will go away. Today, Tracy showed up to "save" Luke before he could race off with Holly to parts unknown with some serious, serious jewelry they found on the island. Hee.

Back in PC, Alexis has spirited Sam's comatose body away from the hospital and into an unknown location.

Seems that Jason authorized tricky surgery (performed by the GORGEOUS Dr. Patrick Drake) that was, in fact, not his decision to make and was illegal because Alexis had an injunction against him.

This show is seriously legally challenged.

However, in a shout out to "House", Alexis tried to stop the surgery by barging into the sterile operating theatre.

All that was missing was the spitting!

But the surgery was performed and Alexis was so mad she had everyone arrested and, while they were preoccupied dealing with that and her subsequent dropping o fthe charges, she spirited Sam away.

In other news, and as another shout out to "House", Lucky is convinced that the mysterious liaison between Dr. Patrick Drake and Lucky's devoted, hard working wife, Leeeeez.....is, in fact, an affair. His impression is not helped by the fact that he's dry swallowing Hydrocodone....a version of Vicodin. ;-)

That's all folks!

Oh, "Um"ily is an idiot and a Livingston needs serious acting lessons. Sonny is entering a fugue state, I think. Benard is trying to bring it but is failing so I'm not really sure what he's going for. And the pairing of these two is not only wrong on so many levels......IT SUCKS LIKE A HOOVER.

I cannot stand it and I hope Jason keeps as far away from them as he possibly can. I recommend Namibia. (That's a Laurie/House shout out, by the way. I had to say it.)
