He seemed to be struggling with remembering his lines. I had to fast forward through a lot of it. Log in to Reply katehhoward January 23, 2013 I agree this episode was painful to seat through. I found myself ff through most of the stories. Olivia and Connie was cute. The Spin and Ellie thing seems promising. Felicia, Mac, and Duke was classic. But the Sonny with Anna scenes felt so forced. It was like MB was out of his element. He could not carry it with a professional like Finola. I guess many of you were right he does phone it in a lot and when it is time to bring it he actually can not! I am very disappointed over this. Maurice could of also been nervous because Finola was telling him Steve is dead to GH and he needs to shape up or ship out as well…lol. Today would of been a good day to have the old cast together like a Bobby, Frisco, Shawn, Tiffany, Robert, Holly, and Georgie story day. Like instead of adding the young-ons story we should have days where stories develop around the classic characters. Goergie and Frisco should return to save Maxie from herself. Log in to Reply InnerBeauty January 23, 2013 I disagree about the scenes between Sonny and Anna. I thought it was nice that she felt comfortable enough to confide in him about her reluctance with Duke and in turn listened to him talk about his feelings for Kate/Connie. I think it is nice that the writers are trying to move his character away from mob drama and therefore it is important that he be able to relate to other characters in a different way and that is the feeling I got when watching today’s episode. I am a MB fan and I am pleased that he seems to be willing to give the new direction of his character a chance. I think I read somewhere before that he was interested in taking his character out of the mob element, or having that not be the sole focus of Sonny. I still miss Steve Burton and wish he could have stayed. It would have been nice to see his character do something else besides mob business all the time. Log in to Reply Jon January 23, 2013 Yesterday it became obvious to me that Maurice Benard has become dead weight on the post-Guza/Phelps GH. He struggled through his lines and flubbed one completely. I wouldn’t miss seeing Sonny in the least if he left PC for good. Log in to Reply Yoryla January 25, 2013 I don’t think the Anna/Sonny scenes were badly acted – but they were unnecessary. I mean, why? I do like that the show acknowledges the Robin connection they share, but in all honesty – Sonny is not the same man he was in 1995 when Stone died. He has come so far from that once likeable guy, that pulling “the old Robin card” ain’t gonna earn as many points with him as it once did. Of course, the scenes once again proved to show what a near-perfect actress Finola Hughes is. She was top notch and on point. Plus she also looked exceptionally beautiful today (please FH, don’t ever take the plastic surgery route like so many other have done!). This Luke supposedly now LOVING Anna is ri-di-cu-loooouuussss! I still hate how the Duke/Anna reunion was ruined/ tarnished. They all should now bleach their minds and take it from the top. Loved the Mac/Felicia scenes – KW was on point today and looked beautiful. I still have to say, no matter how much I dislike Britt as a person, for some reason, I like her as a professional. I find her totally believable as a doctor. Maxie/Spin/Ellie/Connie/Liv – FF Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
