THE AZTEC TREASURE, GENERAL HOSPITAL
Remember the famous Abbott and Costello baseball routine: "Who's on first, What's on second, I don't know's on third?" It was totally confusing, just like the Aztec Treasure storyline on GENERAL HOSPITAL.
Not only were we forced to play "Treasure, treasure, who's got the treasure," but we were never quite sure for whom to root. Instead of flavor-of-the-month, it became villain-of-the-month: Anna is bad/no, Anna is good; Grant is good/no bad/no good. Yikes! The story was further complicated by the intrusion of junior G-men Frisco and Felicia who, incredibly, joined Robert's team as equal partners. Let's get real here.
This saga took so long to unfold that by the time it was finished, we said "Who cares?" Too much Aztec treasure is spelled B-O-R-I-N-G.
