  1. When Soaps Write Couples Outside the Box Pt. 3: Julexis and other pairings

    [B]What romance, aren't they supposed to be knitting in rockers and playing shuffleboard?[/B]






    The solution raised by some for freeing Julian from gasp being paired with a character played by an older woman is to pair him up with newbie Jordan played by an actress who's 16 years younger. My god, if some viewers are up in arms about a 10 years difference in age between actors you think one that's 16 years would make them absolutely livid.

    [SIZE=4][B]Double Standard #2 Julian and Alexis[/B][/SIZE]




    Meet Julian and Alexis or Julexis as they are known including on Twitter where that hashtag trended for the first time on Sept. 4, 2013.

  5. Caught in the Crossroads

    I have to admit I've been pretty slack at watching General Hospital this month. Most of that is because life and work's been very busy but part of it is because my attention span's wandered. I'm just not a great television watcher. I didn't grow up in front of the television as a child and never really gravitated to it as a teen or an adult.
