Watching GH today, I was struck by how beautiful and together and amazing Maxie is. The luminous Kirsten Storms really embodies this character now; she’s taken Maxie from impulsive teenager to sardonic young woman. I think it’s high time she played more of a role on the show, and not just as a talk-to or as Spinelli’s… Read More GH: Have you met Miss Jones?
I have this habit of making up characters’ back story or motivation in my head, and then watching their shows with that filter in place. I can’t help it. It sticks. A great example of viewers who have done this in the past would be X-Files Mulder/Scully ‘shippers who speculated that the duo canoodled in… Read More Canon fodder: back story and missing scenes

“Is it bad that I assume everyone gets killed on GH?” I asked my Twitter followers today. So, with major apologies to Edward Gorey and his famous Gashlycrumb Tinies, I simply cannot resist a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the show’s death toll in recent years. A is for AJ, who caught so much flack B stands… Read More Soap Opera Weekly: Blogging With Mala
Okay, GH, ya got me. Cue the obligatory asthmatic wheezing and choked sobs — all because of Stone and Robin! I let Lucky’s Grand Irish Adventure (now with added Dante and Lulu!) wash right past me with only a passing thought to how badly I want to set Siobhan’s hat on fire. I shrugged off… Read More Soap Opera Weekly: Blogging With Mala
