After I got over SB leaving the role...I loved Tams Carly...I like Laura Wright but she's not Carly for me.

That clip makes me wanna cry...GH was still worth watching back then except for an interloper here and there... Crying

I guess the scriptwriter must not have heard the memo that Sam wasn't conceived as a Brenda Bot?

TB was indeed the best Carly ever. No shade to LW, but this was the height of my love for this character. God, this was 5 years ago. If GH could at least get as good now as it was then, I would be set.

The Sam fans will be in here with their delsuions in 5,4,3,2...

Can we get a Kelly Monaco tag on this. At least if she is going to get slammed she should get the clicks.

Oh and I would rather be a Brenda look-a-like (VM being one of the prettiest women ever on daytime) than to be the Easy Bake Oven of PC>

Best quote of the day -

"But thats you. I am Elizabeth Webber, self-righteous paragon of virtue with feet of clay." Elizabeth Webber to Patrick Drake

Well for once, I actually agree with Hosabeth.

I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking that Tamara Braun was the best Carly ever on GH--with all due respect to Sarah Brown and Laura Wright, neither of them managed to capture Carly's propensity for scheming and her talent for getting herself in over her head quite like TB.

Nobody is slamming Kelly, just the character of Sam. I love them both, but I don't turn a blind eye to the fact that Sam is the most popular Brenda Bot to come along. The character has done some heinous things, so I'm not going to put her up on a pedastal just because I like the actress and character.

PS-She's a hell of a lot better when she's not with Jason...

You would rather the man you are with only be with you because he thinks you look like the woman he really loves more than be able to have children? Huh? To each their own?

By the way, Jamey isn't slamming Kelly. He is settling whether Sam was a Brenda replacement. She was.

I can see where I created confusion. I wasnt saying he is slamming Kelly. Articles get tagged with who they are about. Seems to me that this thread is at least as much about Sam as it is Carly, so if TB is tagged, then so to should Kelly. That at least if Sam is going to get trashed, Kelly should get the clicks.

And I love Carly, but if we are going to by everything that she says as being spot on, lets not forget the things she has said about Hosabeth..

Like this great clip

Why bring Elizabeth into this? The Sam fans always wanna bash Liz when their girl gets slammed. As you saw today, Liz knows what she is. Sam is the same person who thought that tricking men into marrying her for money was going to help her disabled brother instead of getting a real job.

Elizabeth married men because she loved them, not to make a quick buck. Sam hasn't once admitted to being the slut that she is...

Jamey is making the case that Sam is a brenda bot because Carly says she is. I love Carly. I have been a huge fan of all 3 major version. But Carly likes to talk smack and not all of it is true, and one of her favorite tell it like it is targets is Lizard. If Sam is a brenda bot because Carly says she is, then you best not watch the clip and hear what she calls Lizard.

Just saying. If Carly's word is gospel, its gospel.

Carly-Tams was my hands down favorite Carly. Her version actually made me like the character and I always hated Carly. Carly-LW is an interesting character, but she's just not Carly to me.

Sarah Brown's Carly was a character you just loved to hate. I always thought Tamara's version softened Carly a little, but I still liked her portrayal. Minus Jennifer Bransford, GH has casted the character very well because it's hard for me to imagine anyone besides Laura Wright in the role.

Enough with the Sam vs. Elizabeth fights already. I'm tired of these threads. I'm sure we can have this debate go on forever, but both sides need to calm down.

No, actually I am making the case, becaue the writers obviously were going in that route. Despite all the protests that Sam wasn't conceived as a Brenda Bot, it's kind of a mute point when they wrote it into the dialogue don't you think? Kelly was already a hit on PC, but even then I remember ABC execs and soap critics making comparisons to VM and Brenda in the press. Do you seriously think her near-strking resemblance to VM wasn't even a factor when they brought her on to General Hospital??? I mean, as far as "conspiracy theories" this is pretty head on. It's not like I'm saying the govt. engineered the sniffles so that Kleenex could make a killing. In my opinion, this clip proves it. The writers have spoken through Carly.

I like Laura Wright, but I would send her down the river to Pharoah's daughter in a New York Minute if it meant getting my Tamara back.

I agree with you Jamey, I don't see why its such a terrible thing to admit that they brought Sam on to be the meat in a Sonny/Jax Sandwich. A lot of times TPTB try to recapture magic by doing the same storyline again. Vanessa left so they figured because KM looked like her that it would be great like before, but they are 2 different actresses and it failed. Jax/Sam and Sonny/Sam both had no chemistry and tptb were scrambling so they decided to throw her in Jasons orbit.

Not just JaxSam and SonnySam, JASAM is a direct result of Brenda's storyline! Except for the baby in Sam's "not so easy bake" oven, the storyline that placed Sam in Jason's life was near identical to Brenda's last big storyline, where she and Jason bonded after he was forced to take care of her to keep Carly happy. SAME EXACT STORYLINE. Greatest love story ever told me thinks not...

----------------------------------------------------
I actually forgot about that, it really was the same as the Jason/Brenda story now that I think about it. It actually started off identical except for the Sonny/Sam baby.
I would love it if TB came back as Carly, but only as Carly not some other character. Claudia and Rebecca are bad enough.

UM WHY DOES THIS MATTER. THIS WAS 5 or more years ago she still on the show has many fans for her own character not because of somebody who isn't. AND lastly this thing with you talk about with Jason. Sam and Jason had there own magic thanks to Steve and Kelly from there chem. and the talent. They did a amazing job with there s/l.

So you keep saying this biut what happened to tis Jason and Brenad s/l nothing they didn't get together nothing happened so how do you know they were going to get togeher. You have no proof of it going down that road so whats the deal. And it's no the same exact s/l because um one happened the other didn't and JaSam gained a big following which many ppl loved so WHATS THE PROBLEM.

Um no thts wrong but if you feel that way we can say the same about Liz too. When she does something oh it's not as bad as what Carly,Maxie or anybody eles has did but she is wrong her damn self. And why do we need to defend Sam on this point becasue she has done nothing wrong. This is just more nit picking at one chacter for no reason.

Thanks again Jamey.

I for one was always a SB fan and because I was devout I never took to Tamara, though I do commend her as an actress not until Laura came into the did I start caring about Carly again. As for Brenda Bot issue, I mean really how can any think that wasn't the issue with bringing KeMo on board. Once VM left they led Sam down the same path as Brenda.

I for one think Brenda and Jason could and would have been awesome, and I was happy when Sam was pawned off on Jason because she filled my Brenda need, and yes they had good chem, not so much now.

MrSam - I think it was obvious where the writers were taking Brenda/Jason I mean they got married it was only a matter of time before they were more. So they gave Kemo her s/l, and matched it almost note for note..with preganancy instead of marriage

I also must confess that this is getting out of hand with the need to always go after Liz when a Sam issue is brought up.

I like TB's Carly for some reasons and LW's Carly for others. For example, I liked TB's Carly with Sonny (Not as much as I liked Brenda with Sonny, but that's a different story.) But I like LW's Carly with Jax. Regarding Sam, I think us Jasam lovers should stop trying to get under the skin of all the Liarson fans in cyber space. We should know you are all a little irritated that our supercouple is finally back and you now have to accept yet another LL2 reunion.

The only Carly was Sarah Brown. I've always hated the character of Carly but I loved hating Sarah Brown's version more. The direction they took that character is all kinds of wrong.

The reason they always bash Liz is because Sam has never really had any competition. For the years of JaSam they kept everyone out of Jason's orbit and even when they brought Robin back Sam had no competition until Liz and she freaked out and had a meltdown.

Think about it who threatened Sam for Jason's heart during their romantic years. No man even wanted Sam.

Sarah Brown was to Carly, what Robin Strasser was to Rachel Davis on AW. She created a great "love to hate" bitch. But just like Victoria Wyndham to the heights of popularity by transforming Rachel into a scrappy-yet-beloved heroine, Tams did the same with Carly. Brown's Carly was amazing for the purpose she served. She was a great villainess, but Tam made her an unforgettable tragic heroine. That's the Carly I adored. Laura has traits of all three, but she's so 'bull in a China shop" that it tends to be a bit overwhelming. Especially with Sarah back matching her snarl for snarl.
