    Question I had this week that I have off and on: If St. Sonny of Port Charles doesn’t run drugs, or weapons, and I’m guessing not white slavery, then what is so “illegal” about his “mob” business? He doesn’t run a strip club anymore and we never hear about the prostitution crisis in Port Charles so I doubt it’s that. Usually organized crime is committing some sort of you know CRIME. Instead it’s just this wishy washy nonsense designed to keep the character likeable.

    O.K., random thoughts time about the guy in the wheelchair: at first I was thinking Jason, then I was thinking Nickolas, and then i thought: the plastic surgeon has made Nickolas look like Jason! Of course the problem is that Steve Burton IS Jason, not Billy J Miller, and Tyler Christopher IS Nickolas (although I really liked Nick Stabile in the role last year). However TPTB at GH don’t care about logic or their audience so this is mere speculation on my part, and pointless speculation as well! (;

    I am actually a bit intrigued by Burton’s return because there are several different possibilities: Jason could wake up from his coma and instead of Billy J Miller it would be Steve Burton (but I haven’t heard anything about Miller leaving the show); he could be the man in the wheelchair at the clinic with Ava – who could very well be Nikolas Cassadine, perhaps the plastic surgery was done to make him look like Jason?; he could be Jason’s twin and connected to Franco’s storyline (this would make sense: one twin went to the Quartermaine’s and the other went with Franco. Susan Moore and Heather might have had secrets that are being revealed at this time, re-writing GH history).

    Well, we will know likely tomorrow…

    Meanwhile, the show continues to be mostly awful but very well acted all the same…

    Maura West and Steve Burton have good chemistry they should bring on Cady McClain!

    Recently I have had several long, challenging visits to the dentist. My dentist has a television monitor right in front of the patient chair. Each visit has coincided with the airing of a GH episode. So I have seen bits and pieces of the show while being assaulted with drills and other menacing dental tools. Oh, the symbolism of it all.

    I was saddened and disappointed to learn the ratings went up due to Steve Burton’s dull dull dull return ): The show is so dull right now it is excruciating to watch and I have noticed that I get bored after a few minutes, turn off my set and go and do other things. I do like Griffin and Ava but that is it. Silly stories, a love for all the wrong characters, and Bobbie mentioning Lucas and Brad, who have been MIA forever (sigh). The show is so boring!

    And who else things Oscar’s bio-dad will turn out to be Sonny? yuck!

    Chris van Etten’s work as co-HW recently started airing and I have to say there is a marked improvement. The show still isn’t good but it’s at least watchable again. There is still far too much focus on Sonny, Jason, Carly and Sam. But Maura West is a joy to watch and the Griffin pairing is working so far. Finola Hughes gets a good amount of airtime but the material is so poor that she doesn’t really get anything to sink her teeth into. And same goes for Nancy Lee Grahn & Michelle Stafford. It’s a shame to waste three of daytime’s finest like that.

    Freeman, I think it’s Drew/Jason 2.0. I have barely watched the last couple weeks because like stated above this show is wasting it’s good talent in favor of insane, contrived nonsense.  I don’t care about Nelle and Michael, I don’t care for the Sonny show. Valentin seems to be fizzling out and this show just seems to have no real direction to it. It’s just alternately boring and irritating.

    Wes Ramsey is joining GH. I was a big fan of his during his tenure on Guiding Light in the early 2000s. He also appeared on Days, although that was short-term. GH is notorious for hiring actors from other soaps and writing them into a corner, so my expectations are low. Tamara Braun is also joining GH and, as much as I admire her as an actress, I find it difficult to muster any excitement as she will evidently play yet another character who props Jason rather than playing a a doctor or nurse.

    What role did Wes Ramsey play on Guiding Light?

    I have finally stopped watching GH ): I love so many of the actors but the stories drive me up the wall ):

    Wes played Sam Spencer, Olivia’s brother. He was involved with Marah when the character was played by Laura Bell Bundy. He was full-time for two or three years, but like many in daytime, his talented was ultimately squandered.

    Tamara Braun returning to GH as a new character is both kind of interesting and a little bizarre. I guess it’s really not that big of a deal anymore than actors return to shows in new roles, even when the previous role was as big as Carly and played for as long as Braun played her. It is funny, though, that this is the second time Braun is returning to one of the four remaining soaps playing a new character. She did the same on DAYS, sandwiching an unsuccessful stint as Nicole’s sister Taylor (picking up the role from Natalia Livingston, and through no fault of really either actress, that whole thing was pretty terrible) between her runs as Ava Vitali.

    It is a shame they’re not doing something better than getting her involved with the Jason story.

    I find it really depressing that GH’s ratings have been going up up up with the return of one of the dullest characters ever – Jason the borg Morgan (or is that jason the bore?). Even if he turns out to be the twin I really don’t care. I only liked him on GH before they turned him into Sonny’s right-hand man, before the accident, particularly when he was involved with Robin. The only thing I would enjoy would be if he were to become Jason Quartermaine again, but they have eliminated almost all the Q’s and there are almost none left on the canvas.

    I really hate love addict Alexis, still pining for her co-dependent sick love object Julian. Alexis used to be such a strong fierce intelligent woman (sigh). I love NLG but move on from Julian already!

    The only story i have enjoyed lately is the romance between Ava and Griffin.

    What has been going on with NLG’s voice the last few days? Is it on strike?
