HOT AGAIN
GENERAL HOSPITAL


There's nothing like the threat of an ax to help get your priorities , straight.. After the depressing demise of AMC & OLTL it seemed like General Hospital, the network's last remaining soap, was also headed for doom. But a creative reboot has led to a major spike in ratings, and this venerable sudser-which turns 50 in April-is once again kicking ass. Credit the old guard, baby! GH's veteran cast, led by the divine, eternally hip Anthony Geary, and Jane Elliot, has been reenergized with such 80's and 90's favorites as Ian Buchanan, Finola Hughes & Robin Mattson-all of them pure gold.

By mining its rich past, GH is staking out a fabulous future.

The show has been great lately. It's a nice mix of comedy, intrigue, and romance. Great classic soap storytelling.

The show is not that great & I'll never understand all the praise for that pompous hack Ron Carlivati. I'll never support a writer who berates & looks down upon the actual fans of the show he writes. And in public, on Twitter no less. I'll also never support a writer who glamorizes rape and makes a joke out of constantly.

Him & his writing are pathetic, overrated trash and I'd gladly take Guza's influence back on GH over his, in a heartbeat.

Well, I'm not exactly sure how Carlivati "glamorizes rape," or looks down on fans. From what I've seen, Carlivati is all about the fans. Giving the majority of them what they ask for, and have been asking for for years. If anything, I think Carlivati is one of the only writers that caters to soap fans, or at least tries to.

I am loving the show right now. Especially the return of AJ and Anna being on the frontburner.

Excited for what's to come with some of the current stories and the Nurses Ball.

I could do without Kate/Connie though.

I have some issues with Ron C's writing but I will never want Guza :flipoff: back. NEVER.

That mob loving overrated hack, the same hack that destroyed the Quartermaine's one by one and anyone who wasn't named Carly, Sonny, Jason or Sam got thrown under the bus.

Same here I'll never wish Guza back.

I have my issues with RC's writing in some aspects(the mockery he makes of DID), and how douchy he is on twitter, but overall he's doing what writers should be doing, giving fans what they want so they tune in, not giving them a reason to not want to watch

I doubt it's intentional. The show has a lot going on and I think A) her storyline at the time died when Jason 'died' and B) she's now just lost in the shuffle with everything going on

I agree, but even that storyline "for" Liz wasn't one of her own. She was used as a side object for Jasam and their baby s/l. I want her to have a s/l of her own which hasn't happened since Jake's death.

She hasn't had a serious romantic partner since Lucky either. Ewen had potential IMO... I knew right off the bat that Liason wasn't a go, just angst for Jasam :rolleyes: ... So annoying :soapbox: She's better than that.

I didn't like Ewen. He was creepy, IMO. I wouldn't mind if Rick returned and he and Elizabeth got back together. Although Rick was shady, he loved her, and
he opened himself up to her totally.
