BC - Mon, 5/17/10

I've only seen 23 minutes of Monday's episode so far, but I still had a bunch of comments (as opposed to last week, which didn't inspire me to many comments at all). I've got some family stuff going on, but I can post this much right now.

I was really shocked that JAR didn't pick eBabe up and carry her out of BJ's. Of course, has been tired lately.

Ryan tells Madison that one of the reasons he was greatly relieved that Greenlee was not pregnant was that she can't -- he stopped, but we all know she can't carry a pregnancy to term because she has a hostile womb. He says he doesn't want to see her go through that again. SEE her go through it again? He wasn't THERE when she miscarried before because he was pretending he was DEAD at the time (because she informed him that she was pregnant).

eBabe MUST be drunk to think the way JAR was looking at her was with "dreamy eyes". Darting eyes, yes. Dreamy? No.

I thought it was interesting that it was brought to Ryan's attention that a con artist was preying on women at the slot machines. Ryan grouses about thinking he was done having to deal with men preying on women for the day and now he has to worry about men preying on women at his casino. Hello? If he didn't want to be around that sort of thing, then why did he buy the casino in the first place? Casinos have men trying to prey on women (and vice-versa) 24 hours a day! Actually, given Ryan's obsessive need to save women, maybe owning a casino IS the perfect job for him. Then HE can prey on--er--save women 24 hours a day.

Don't you just love how PV routinely keeps patients overnight for observation for just about EVERYTHING? Little Trevor has an ear infection. They give him an antibiotic for it and say they're keeping him overnight just to watch him. Oh PUH-LEASE! Have things changed that much since the early 1970s when my son was a baby, because ear infections are pretty routine for babies, and they'll let you know loud and clear when it's bad enough to hurt, so they usually get treated for them relatively early into the infection unless the parent is somehow able to ignore the constant crying and ear-tugging by the infant or unless something keeps them from getting quick medical attention. I don't know who provides health insurance for most of the PV citizens, but the HQ for it must be somewhere over the rainbow because that's the only explanation for such generous coverage. I don't mean to sound callous about babies and ear infections, BTW. It breaks your heart to see your baby in pain and know there's nothing you can do about it except try to soothe them until the meds kick in.

Now THAT would be a storyline for the times -- how about a couple who has angst because they have to decide between getting medical care or food? They DID let an off-camera patient die because he was uninsured and they couldn't find Angie to sign off on covering his surgery for an aortic aneurysm, though, so that's at least a NOD to the health care crisis.
