Oh, I know I did. But Days hasn't been able to make me feel like that on even a good week in at least 8 years.

GH is not way better then DAYS. It's not even close IMO.
IDK how regular viewers feel about GH because I'm not one. But I had to make myself not watch it last week. It's doing the kind of family stuff I love, and even as a non-regular viewer, I sobbed through half of Monday and Tuesday. It's doing the kinds of things I used to love on Days. Even when the stories themselves sucked, they'd throw in family scenes and reunions that I loved. It's actually a little depressing, though, because as I've watched it on GH, I've kind of realized that will never work on Days again. The families have been too disconnected for too long and IMO none of the families on Days are connected enough to really make scenes like that work anymore. It may not be working for GH either for people who have a longer history of the show, though. IDK.
You came in on a good week. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy GH and think it deserves the ratings, but it's often like two (or three) different shows. And like Days, their best weeks aren't a sign of overall quality. They have a large cast and some of the characters and stories are really hitting the mark and some...are not. And since the cast is so large and most of them are in stories, some stories disappear for weeks at a time. Which can be good for the show, or bad for the show [/Camila Banus]
