    LOL

    I am so happy for Eric Martsolf… He has stepped up – manned up – been up

    since his character mixed with Eileen Davidson’ Kristen… and hasn’t let up….

    I love his character…. and so many do….

    it’s a treat to watch him

    What a delight to watch him SHOW, so much character

    I’m 50/50 with you.

    IA Patrick and Robin deserve to have a real date. So far GH has played it like Robin just popped out for groceries rather than an emotional reunion with a love Patrick though was lost forever. This was probably the last chance to correct that.

    On a point cupid’s arrow–point it toward Sabrina and Carlos. Let’s see…guy that’s willing to stand behind you thru anything or a tepid guy who’s just settling for a mommy figure for his daughter. Tough choice. Not.

    Cancel date–I agree with Franco and Carly there. There’s just no way to make the character of Franco happen with anyone. Way too much baggage that can’t just be erased because he had a brain tumor so none of his despicable deeds were really his fault. Yeah, there’s forgiving but forgetting is a whole different thing.

    Deserves to be alone– I was going to go with the awful precocious kiddie triangle and obnoxious little Prince Spencer in particular but I think Liz just edged them out.

    So I guess Love In The Afternoon is pretty much over even for Valentine’s Day then?

    I adore Spencer! Precociously, pretentiously adorable!

    I actually agreed with you up until the kiddle triangle began….I was always taken with little Spencer’s awesomely appointed attire and impeccable manners….he was the cutest little gentleman. I still love him with Britt and the other adults….but when he is involved with the obnoxious Emma and cloying Cameron, then I am so over him. That completely ludicrous chupacabra farce had me moaning at the screen….especially since I knew that it was going to be just another “Cartini-contrived” device to draw Robin’s daughter back into Soppy’s orbit….saw that one coming a mile away!

    GHs Monica could use a little lovin too…GH shouldve kept Robert Scorpia and paired him with Monica…Monica falls in love with him but he is using her to make Anna, who is dating Duke a little jealous…then after Monica realizes this, she dumps Robert just as he begins to have real feelings for her!!!

    rebecca1 replied

    oh Jim….LOL…I could NEVER see Scorpio with Monica…Maybe back in “her” day…but now? No…I see her with a more typical older guy…not a devlish bloke like Scorpio. Now maybe if Holly came back…that’d be a rivalry!

    Shay replied

    Sorry, jimh, but I’m with rebecca1on this one. Monica is better suited to a distinguished, more erudite gentleman….like a Victor Cassadine, although I am hoping that he’s gonna be Dr. O’s best beau here soon…about time that lusty lady shook her Faison obsession and started to live a little!!!! LOL…What would really be cool is if they found a guy that both Monica and Tracy coveted and the Quartermaine mansion would become ground zero for a love battle royale between those bitter in-laws….and NO, I don’t mean the lame likes of Luke Spencer!!!!

    Character that deserves to be alone: Y&R’s Victor Newman (boy, does he!)

    Character that needs to be stuck by Cupid’s arrow: Y&R’s Jill Abbott Fenmore (by someone like Larry Wartman or Ji Min Kim again, PLEASE!!)

    Couple who deserve a date: Pam and Charlie on B&B. Come on, they’re so cute together and it would be both touching and funny to watch them going out on a REAL date for a change!

    Character who should stop accepting Valentines: B&B’s Brooke. If she gets any more, she’ll explode (or my head will!!).

    Couple who should cancel their Valentine’s plan: Well, there are quite a few, really, but if someone could stop Cane and Lily from their CONSTANT Valentine’s mush, I will be a very happy Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, Earth Day, Halloween, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and all the other holidays rolled into one person, because I can’t TAKE the two of them being all mushy all the time! For crying out loud, FIGHT once in a while and stay mad at each other for a couple weeks. Be realistic!! AUGH!!

    wolfy (who hopes you all have a nice Valentine’s Day. mwah!)

    Definitely the character that deserves to be alone is Felix of GH….he is a nosy, nasty little man who thinks it’s his job to interfere in everyone’s business to the detriment of returning Brad’s undeserved attentions…..I know, Mr. Cooper began as a creep extraordinaire, but he now seems to be redeemable, and he is much more preferable with Lucas. As for the couple that needs to be stuck by Cupid’s bow, that would be Dr. O. and Victor…cannot wait to see them paired up…a real fire and ice kind of couple! The duo that deserves a date is Patrick and Robin…they should have at least another sweet moment before she leaves, although I don’t know that “Cartini” is even going to give the audience that much respect. As for the ones that should cancel their Valentine’s plans, I would absolutely go with Molly and TJ….they are boring and tedious together and need to be written out. As for whom should get no hearts….Alexis. Tired of her persistent panting over Julian….it’s so undignified and ridiculous. That woman really can pick ‘em….just another disaster waiting to happen….once again.

    Molly and T.J. are the boringest(is that a word…lol) teen couple ive ever watched in my 50 years as a soap viewer!!!

    So true, jimh! In general, there is simply not enough romance in soap couplings anymore, no matter the age group….but these two are the worst of the worst. Of course, I don’t know who would work with Molly! She seemed like she would have made a better pairing with Rafe at the beginning, as they had more in common like a love of lit and their family ties, but now “Cartini” has decided to turn Eddie Munster into a stalking teen psycho, so that idea has gone by the wayside. Given Alexis’s history of teen pregnancy and unsatisfying, shallow relationships, you would think that she would be a bit more vigilant and motherly with her daughters in warning of risky boyfriends and behaviors, but no! I just hope that they don’t go there with Molly and TJ….particularly since we already have one ridiculous unwed babymama storyline with which to contend.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Replying to you about Monica…you and Rebecca are right…her and Scorpio wouldnt work…its just so many of us keep saying Liz needs a storyline but then i thought what about poor Monica…at least they show and use Liz a lot but Monica is rarely ever seen that one almost forgets she is even there…when Donna Mills joins the show im hoping she is Ninas momma and that Ninas father(hoping for Ron Raines or Jerry ver Dorn) also shows up and is an old flame of Monicas and this causes a triangle between the three! Donna M. and Leslie C. both appeared on Love Is A Many Splendon Thing as sisters and were involved in a triangle there with a character played by David Birney(Leslie and David dated in real life at the time) and it would be great to see them working in scenes together!!! It would be something if David B. could join the show but i dont know how Leslie C. would feel about that…maybe he’s retired anyway, havent seen him in anything for years but it would really be something if they could get him as Donna Mills onscreen husband and all three were working together again over 40 years later!!!

    It’s true that Liz needs a storyline, but not as an interfering shrew! I have been quite disappointed with her latest plot developments, and I truly hope she soon gets a real romance of her own, so she no longer is merely a prop, pep squad or private eye for other characters…most especially “you know who!” That being said, I am constantly amazed at your encyclopedic knowledge of the most obscure soap info, jimh! I know they say that the concept of history only begins from the day one was born, but you have so many memories of programs that most of us have only read about, if even! It really is quite marvelous….particularly since so many primetime stars had their humble beginnings on the “soapies” of the ’50′s/’60′s/70′s and ’80′s….the latter being the decade with which I am most nostalgic and cognizant! At any rate, I am not much of a Birney fan, but that is a cool idea to incorporate him into a Mills/Monica arc….I do hope those two actresses get to share a GH scene together at the very least!
