TV Source Podcast EP 13: GH Reaction – Buddy Hijinx, Schemers, Triangles & Couple Controversy

The source crew is back with another soap edition of the TV Source Podcast! We had two week’s worth of topics to get through, leading to a supersize taping. Rather than force you to listen to HOURS (and there were hours) of footage, our producer broke it down into two parts and left some on the cutting room floor. We’ve brought the sass, humor and heated discussions in this taping to share with all of you!In part one of this episode, we’re talking all things General Hospital. A new career path for Lulu has our team excited, even if it seemed to come out of left field; Nelle is pregnant (shocker), but is she long for the world? The meat of the two Jasons story is beginning to take shape with Sam being torn between two men, we discuss her options and Franco and Elizabeth’s engagement.

The rundown for the episode taped December 17th, 2017:

Hosts: Ashley, Coryon, Johnathon and Ryan

  • Lulu and Maxie finally have some fun with stink bombs and breaking and entering – and it’s entertaining! It’s nice seeing Lulu have fun and new job seems to be leading to a meatier story for her with discovery of rigged election ballots.
  • Nelle reveals she’s scamming for two after being exposed. Do we buy anything she’s selling? Why hasn’t anyone offed her yet? Ryan makes a shocking admission, but Johnathon takes things a bit too far. Ashley and Coryon are having NONE of it.
  • With the truth out, Sam is torn between two brothers. Though she’s doing her best to reaffirm her love for an insecure Drew, but is she being too cold to Jason? Some say so. Our hosts debate Sam’s actions, and her central role as the show’s heroine. Coryon wants more “Carly” in Kim, and he and Ashley criticize the GH for adding an unnecessary element to an already good storyline with Kim and Oscar.
  • The backlash for Elizabeth and Franco’s relationship grows louder on social media, but Ryan comes to their defense. Is Franco the worst person for Elizabeth? Our hosts debate that question and lay out their reasons yay or nay.

Episode Run-time: 51 minutes
