Not much for you today. I’m just getting back up to speed on things including reloading my computer after its unfortunate melt-down. It’s pretty much a new machine since they had to replace almost everything. So it’s basically been rebuilt. It’s running smoother than it has in ages. I’m just in the process of getting all my programs reinstalled that I need in order to cap, clip and edit. I’m hoping to have all Tamara’s GENERAL HOSPITAL work up hopefully by Sunday. Given Monday is Christmas I’ve got most of my shopping done and only a few gifts to wrap, so I’m hoping to work on clips and such Saturday, Keep an eye out. As for this post, I have thanks to a good friend Jasper who has a wonderful tribute site to the late actor Anton Yelchin, I have four stills from Tamara’s telefilm STALKED BY MY EX where she played the part of Chloe. I wasn’t able to catch it, but I’m hoping to soon. If I’m not online before Monday, here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Remember if you’re going to be driving either take a taxi or use a designated driver.



This is a reminder to let you know that Tamara’s Lifetime movie STALKED BY MY EX is airing this Friday 15 December, 2017 at 8:00 PM on any Lifetime channel. I’m not sure if it’s online but please make sure you find it. Tamara looks like she’s going to be amazing in it.



Here are today’s clip and screencaps from Tamara’s episode. I gotta admit I’m still having a hard time buying her as Kim when all the time I see her I want her so much to be Carly. My main issue with this is that she should be playing Carly. I am also having a hard time deciding on whether to write an opinion/commentary piece on why I feel this is so wrong. The reason for the conflict is whether I might offend some of Tamara’s fans for what I might say. Or if I might offend Tamara for what I would have to say. So this is my conundrum. I know for the last few bits I’ve been saying I’ll have something more to say on it, but I’m truly torn as to whether to state my peace or let it go. Comments welcome.



Sorry for the delay but I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and was very tired when I got home. I had to clip up the episode twice because the quality of the first clip wasn’t what I want for the site. The second one is so much better. Hope you agree. I’m preparing a commentary I hope to post sometime later tonight or tomorrow. I have some more things to say on this episode and things in “general”.



Early bird catches the worm? Told you I’d have the clip and caps up early. Don’t I always deliver? Don’t answer that. So when do we finally call Tamara’s character Carly? She adopted the infamous Carly Hand-on-Hip stance today. All the while I was watching I was still thinking of her as Carly. Seeing her with Rebecca Herbst as Liz I’m still reminded very much of The Panic Room from 2003. I’m also wondering if and when Tamara’s story finally picks up. Within two weeks of her original premiere as Carly from 2001, she was in the thick of things. Here we are six appearances in, about two weeks in and we’ve pretty much gotten nothing. Tamara has not disappointed but this story line sure is going nowhere. And I still see Tamara as Carly.



Here finally is Tamara’s episode for today. Sorry it took me so long to get up, but I had dinner to get for my partner and I had a bit of an issue in ripping the clip. So Carly became a doctor! Too bad they didn’t do this back in 2005 when Tamara was making her decision to leave the show. Perhaps she might have been convinced to stay so we’d have a good Carly instead of a regressed soccer mom. Tamara was really rocking that ponytail today. Loved it to pieces. Reminds me of a scene from 2004 where Tamara was wearing a similar ponytail in some scenes with Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos). I have an issue, though with Dr. Kim’s being the one to do the ultrasound on Maxie (Kirsten Storms). I don’t know about anyone else but at a teaching hospital it’s the technicians who usually do the imaging of patients. Rarely if ever does the specialist do the actual history and work. When I went to an OBGYN I never saw her. I had the resident do my endometrial biopsy and botch it so bad I had cramps for at least two or three days after. She didn’t do it well so I had to finally have my family doctor do it. In the whole appointment with the OBGYN specialist I never saw the actual doctor. So again not sure why Dr. Kim was doing the testing. Ah well…… It’s a soap opera.

Here finally is Thursday’s episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL. Sorry it took me so long to get it up but my on demand service was giving me hassles when I was trying to record and I didn’t get a good rendering when I clipped it up so I had to go back and re-clip and render. So I’m going to say it again, if anything Thursday’s episode again showed why Tamara’s return is wrong. Why? All during that scene with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) when they were introducing themselves, I was yelling at the screen, “PANIC ROOM PANIC ROOM PANIC ROOM!” I’m so tired of seeing on message boards that Laura Wright is somehow some sacred cow. When Frank Valentini knew he had Tamara, he should have done the political chess game it would have taken to bring her back as Carly. To me Tamara has seniority because she came before Wright. Wright is not playing Carly, she’s playing some other character and it’s ridiculous to even think she’s not. I’ve tried to be as conciliatory as I can to Wright’s fans, but I can’t anymore and I’m tired of having to keep “the peace” and being politically correct. There just comes a time when common sense has to prevail and logic rule. Soap operas are solidly trying to keep relevant. Part of that relevancy is unless there is a really good reason to bring a former actor back, then have a good reason for it. So far I’ve not seen any reason for Tamara to be back as this Kim. Don’t get me wrong I love the name. That is my partner’s name and I love her dearly, however, “Kim” hasn’t done anything that remotely looks promising. Or as Joel said in one of his comments here, “Loving how incredible Tamara has been in the role of Kim Nero; it’s a new role for her, being a doctor, so it’s refreshing to see her in a role such as Kim! Hoping to see her developed more as the weeks and months go on!” I mean all he has to say is that “she’s a doctor” and “it’s an incredible role”. I love my girl hence this site, but it’s been four episodes and there’s nothing awesome about this character or even a hint of where this story is going. Again having her interact with people she acted with before is only compounding the issue of using that history of Tamara as Carly especially with the reveal that Steve Burton is indeed Jason Morgan, I’m thinking of the flashback they could have used when Jason came back to Port Charles back in 2002 to compound that history between Carly, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason. I’m thinking of that scene where Carly sees Jason at the Penthouse and jumps into his arms. I’m also still having the feeling this character is short-term. Sarah Brown lasted for almost two years as Claudia Zacharra and from the looks of “Kim’s” squirrelly behaviour, I don’t see the character lasting long. We as Tamara’s fans who would love to see her return to being Carly, let your voice be heard. In the poll I ran here on the site 66% of the respondents said they wanted her as Carly. Most of the message boards and comment sections I’ve read want Wright gone. That should mean something. It used to.
