I am so disappointed in the direction this show has taken. I started watching GH again when the OLTL characters came on. That has been a complete disaster creating new characters for the wonderful actors. I tried to watch OLTL on line, which is a complete fail in my opinion.
If any of the decision makers care enough to read these comments, they will see that NO, sex does not always sell. There are some of us with morals and find the sexed up shows very trashy and disgusting. I know you have nothing to do with OLTL now. However, I refused to watch when the blouses got much lower on Vicki and Dorian (gross), and skirts shorter on the others, for the online version. Lack of trashiness is not what forced AMC and OLTL off the air.
Please see a few of the following examples. Not to mention the stupid continued storyline's such as Heather, Faison and now Britt's mom. Really? And Robin, in and out with a current ridiculous reason to bow out again.
1. Molly and TJ ready for sex? This actress is underage in real life. This should be considered sexual exploitation of a minor.
2. The gay spit and sex scenes. And don't throw out that 'I'm ***phobic' or 'prejudiced' I think it is disgusting. These shows are on in public arenas such as doctor's offices, etc. Completely embarrassing to witness this disgusting act in front of children and seniors. That's what happened to me. They thought it was pornography.
Also, I'm not trying to be rude. However, I think the hair cuts of the male actors have been terrible. Most of the actors on GH are good looking until they get one of the signature out dated hair cut that looks like a bowl cut. Sorry, it is not attractive. There is much more but I have had enough focus on this smut. After 35 years for me, it is my final goodbye. Since many of the great characters have left on their own. Its time for me to do the same.
I am very disappointed in the direction they have taken GH! They are putting down conservatives right and left and making us look bad for having a difference of opinion on traditional marriage and relationships. It will always be un-natural to watch same sexes kissing each other and then adding disgusting comments like ;I hope you changed the sheets" man commenting on another mans date with his man. You have sunk to an all time low and not worthy of my viewing. That is my right which I am taking. I question your need to force your view... or is it your intention to brain wash or shame others into believing your twisted distorted view of relationships is actually ok? We all will answer someday for the kind of influence we had on others. I hope you are comfortable with that and also with losing many, many viewers!
I've been watching GH for 30 years - I even hung in there when the writing was so stupid that I couldn't believe I was wasting my time. I, however, absolutely refuse to sit through this nauseating gay story line. So far, whenever these guys are on, I switch the channel. I am not going to watch guys in bed together, let alone watch them kiss. If GH decides to continues to go in that direction, I'll just have to accept the fact that it's time for me to move on. Leaving GH might not be such a bad idea - in addition to the "boys," there isn't an interesting plot in the whole show. Why did they bring Kimberly back and give her boring writing? Maybe it's time for "Robin" to leave town for good. Don't even get me started on this ridiculous Heather story! The writers must think the GH viewers are so dumb that they can have Heather dig herself out of a grave, write a message with enough of her blood to supply the blood bank, drag Carly all over town and even get Luke tied up in the mental hospital (lets not forget with a blond wig) and we will watch with bated breath! Oh, I even walked away from falling off a high rise building! Now that I think about it, GH is sinking fast! Hope someone from GH reads the fans' reviews.
Ok, enough is enough! It was bad enough extending GH to the gay community, but REALLY!!!! Do we now HAVE to show to men in bed with one another and swapping spit. I'm so disgusted by this that I will probably quit watching GH. I'm sick and tired of having a small portion of the population directing what we see and don't see on TV. This has just gone too far! There are enough gay shows on TV that can't we just leave some shows for the "NORMAL" people in this population????? Also happening on my other favorite show "REVENGE"! I really don't want to see this and there are alot of people who do. DIRECTORS!!!!!! GET WITH EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE THIS ON TV. If that's how people want to live their lives, so be it, but we the American Public don't want to see it.
By far the worst actor I have ever seen in my life. I was so happy when Franco Stabbed her and I thought she was finally gone for good. Then she came back and it almost made me stop watching the show. All the does is wear those stupid trench coats and ugly A S S sunglasses and threatens over and over again that she is going to kill Carly. Do your show a favor and get rid of Heather Webber AKA Robin Mattson for good.
Please please please get rid of Heather Webber!!!!!!! Seriously enough is enough of her. Also, is anyone else disappointed that Robin is back? She is just an annoying character and she and Patrick no longer have that same chemistry. She isn't likeable anymore, and she gives off an air of being better than everyone, not just in the show, but in her interviews. Move on Kimberly, the show was fine without you.
Have not been happy with stories for some time. Some have been good but too much reliance on nostalgia and the over the top Heather Webber stories have been annoying me for some time. Can't even eat a BLT anymore thakns to these stupid stories! They will send GH the way of the soap graveyard soon and it is too bad as it has been the only one I have stuck with in all the years of viewing.
Taken it too far, too bored, not bothering anymore and the ratings should show not alone in this soon. The better actors Roger Howarth especially, hope to see on something worthy of your talent soon.
Add this to the recent decision for to restrict viewership online access to cable subscribers for up to one week delay and not bothering with these fools any longer. really??? a psycho running the hospital that was in jail??? had not watched in two weeks and tuned in today to catch this stupidity. Turned off the tube and went for a lovely walk in fog! BYE
HOW IN THE HECK ARE YOU ALL GOING TO LET A PSYCHOPATH OUT OF JAIL, AND BE HEAD OF THE HOSPITAL. HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR MINDS. YOU ALL HAVE DONE SOME DUMB STUFF WITH THIS PICTURE BUT THIS HAS GONE WAY OVER THE EDGE. AND ANOTHER THING HOW IN THE HECK DOES A CRAZY PERSON CONSTANTLY GET OUT OF THE NUT HOUSE AND NO ONE IS LOOKING FOR HER (HEATHER WEBER) WE KNOW THIS IS A JUST SOAP OPERA BUT DO YOU ALL REALLY HAVE TO TRY TO INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE. STUPID, STUPID OH YES DID I MENTION THIS IS STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's weird that you take one character out of the picture and the whole show falls apart because the show hasn't hasn't been the same since Jason some storylines keep on being remade except with different characters example,Britt's baby is actually Dante & Lulu's and she's hiding it from them because she doesn't want to give it up and believes Nik won't want to be with her after knowing the truth which is like Maxie wanting carrying a baby that she was going to carry for them when it was really her's & Spinelli's only to hide it from them because she thought she'd lose they're doing the whole Patrick happy with his woman only to find out the woman he was with before her is now pregnant except he's with Robin again and it's Sabrina who is pregnant along with the fact that she could actually be pregnant with his kid unlike when Britt made him think he was the need to come up with new storylines instead of repacking old ones with different characters involved and I hope they keep Robin along with one day bring Jason not,just end it since it's been on even before I was born and they can't come up with something new.
~ soap history 101, LoL, when ABC's General Hospital paid homage to the old Agnes Nixon half-hour ABC soap opera, Loving recently by featuring the Alden mansion that Jerry Jacks was hiding out in and with the mention of Loving's fictional town name, Corinth the newbies had no clue, LoL, and now when I YouTube search > general hospital sneak peek for 10/28/13
The show is no good without Jason Morgan. And I am not talking about a recast it needs to be Steve Burton. I hate all the dead people coming back as well but that is the ONE AND ONLY person that needs to remain on the show. Do what you have to do and bring him back :) PLEASE!
What's going on with the casting on GH these days? Bringing back Anna was the best, but things just
went down hill since then. The OLTL people just don't fit. They didn't do well as their OLTL characters,
and giving them completely new identities is worse. Todd Manning was OK, but Franco is terrible. I don't see why the actress that played Starr Manning would be so popular. She over acts all the time. Same with the new character she's playing. Obnoxious, unnatural. "Suddenly" she is all "good" after turning Morgan to gambling? I still don't know if she wanted to scam him at first. And her mom, can't stand her either. I understand wanting to be loyal your team. But if they didn't do well, making them someone else (after such a short time is not going to help! Please, spare us the pain! And the new girl Taylor. The character is terrible but at least the previous actress was good. The one new just forces me to push the "ff" button on my DVR. The only thing I have to look forward to now is Robin coming back.
James Franco and the original writers who created the character Robert Frank, the Sociopath serial killer trying to make a connection with his hit man twin brother he never knew did an awesome job. The fact that Jason is a hit man and their real father and mother, Alan and Susan were both sinister at times made it an interesting idea. Not to mention their psychopathic cousin Heather selling Franco off. Ending it with "if you kill me you'll never know the truth" worked quite well. Franco told him in the beginning to finish it he would have to kill him. Now all that creativity has literally been flushed with the overused brain tumor story line. In addition Roger Howarth while good at other roles such as Todd Manning and Paul Ryan, does not fit this role at all. As if this isn't torture enough we have to endure yet another baby debacle . Well as this is just a show for entertainment I wish the show the best of luck but I will no longer be entertained.
I am so sick of Olivia and Morgan! Their whiney, shrill voices have me on edge! I now tape GH and fast forward over their scenes, so I don't have to hear their voices. Please do something with them before I completely stop watching. I am enjoying some of the other plots.
GH is making another great turn around. I have watched for almost 30 years. I wish and hope this current turn around lasts.
I am sad to see Connie go. I did not like her at first. What an amazing talent. She was fantastic and believable furring the breakdowns. There was so much room for failure and cheese with that story line but she was probably the only one who could have made that work.
My beef right now is the casting of Lulu. The new Lulu had some major shoes to fill but she has had plenty of time to prove herself. I give her a D grade to be nice lol. She is lacking the fire and does not even have a glimmer of talent. I think the straw that broke the back for me today. Watching her with Luke and lack of connection. Her awful fake dry emotional conversation with Nicholas the fake awful cry and again lack of connection with him. It's just so forced. Her chemistry with all of them is just not there.
Everything is so exciting again but she just a biz kill for me. Today possible goodbye to Luke, conversation terrible fake cry to Nick, lack of chemistry with the rest if the actors is just disappointing.
I have been watching General Hospital faithfully since I was a little girl. I cannot believe that the show has turned out to be a flop after all of the hard work that the previous writers have written before. I was upset how they wrote the story line of Robin and brought her back and then gone again. Then the way that they wrote Jason's story line was even more difficult to bear but then they bring in the OLTL characters. Franco cannot play Jason there is only one Jason and that is played by Steve Burton who I totally LOVE! NOONE ELSE can play Jason! I am disappointed thoroughly and I hope the writers realize that they are losing their faithful fans with these hideous story lines. They most certainly will not get a daytime Emmy Award this year.
I have watched GH since the beginning and cannot believe the direction it has taken during the last year. I think it all began when the writers brought the "3 Musketeers" - McBain, Starr and Todd - to Port Charles. I do like Roger Howarth who plays Todd - but on OLTL - not "Franco" on GH. Roger is a fine actor and deserves a better character than that of "Franco". I loved the REAL FRANCO - JAMES E FRANCO - when he played Robert Frank and feel he played the part to perfection - but Jason killed him and it was NOT necessary to bring this character back on GH - particularly played by someone else. Our regular GH actors are not getting the time on the soap that they deserve - it is becoming "Landview" instead of "Port Charles". Let's put the "Three Musketeers" back in Landview where they belong - and give our real GH actors a chance to have more storylines, love and mob fights!!!!!! If GH continues in this direction - down - I fear it will be gone from TV .... and sooner than you think.... and sooner than I like!!!!
I have watched GH for over 40 years and this never happened 3 actors the same with different names ... I'm sorry I understand the names were license to OLTL should of started with new names , but now it's to late .... McBain, and now the twin brother, a Doctor. Again, no mention of McBain, it's the slayer? He's freaky looking now, and what's up with that ponytail? Seriously? Why did they bring these 3 back? As of today, they add NOTHING to the show at all. They were great as original characters, now, it's just plain stupid. All awhile, we have several other actors/actress' that well, fell off the charts completely. stories open make this a Great soap again ???
I do not like what they did with the OLTL characters I cannot stand Todd playing Franco its just unbeleivable! Make it go away!!!! Bring back Todd, Starr and McBain as the characters they were meant to be not these half baked wanna bees! The writers are ruining GH. I ahve recorded and watched GH for years and I'm ready to throw the towel in. And enough of the teen .
I've been a fan of GH for over ten years and now it's time to let it go. To bring back Todd and Starr as new characters and expect the viewing public to accept them is demeaning! If you want to put this show in the toilet, I'll gladly flush it and change the channel!
I have seriously considered starting a blog called "Bad Bad General Hospital" and each day writing what was wrong with the show that day but I realized I don't have enough hours in the day. Have you ever seen such a weak first time romp in the hay as with Patrick and Sabrina who has to take kissing lessons think I am rooting for the Britch and that's really anyone else think the Britch took one of Lulu & Dante's frozen embryos??
All My Children, One Life To Live, General Hospital (extremely possible)
General Hospital has had some extremely dumb stories, and they just get worse.
I was sick to my stomach after Maxi had a miscarriage and then went home from the hospital to crawl in to be with Spinelli. Apparently they have no females writing. Anyone who has had a miscarriage knows how bloody things are after a miscarriage. Talk about gross. Then you make Maxi pregnant with Spinelli`s baby!!!!
John the Cop ex FBI, Steven the Vampire? now a doctor?
Star now KiKi?
Todd now Franko? I`myself am getting sick to death of soaps bringing people back to life. Do any of you have an original bone in your body?
Why not ask your fans what`s going on in their lives? You had a great idea by using Maxi as a surrogate. Why not get in touch with some surrogates, and show the troubles and struggles with carrying another person`s baby?
When Sam finally excepted Jason``s death don`t you think a memorial service should have taken place ?
The guy was on the show for 21 years and you do nothing? I actually was going to stop watching the show at that point, and now I think I should have.
Are you setting yourself up for failure?
Maybe that`s why the guy who played Jason left, he got a look at the upcoming scripts!
I`m positive you must be loosing fan`s daily. I sure as hell will stop watching it unless you start getting your writters to write something people want to watch.
I`ve got a great idea, why not put real troubles. Hell I could give you tons of lititure on the mess of my separation alone. There`s stalking, abuse, leagal fee`s for no reason, rigging our home so he could get in, and taking every set of locks taken off every time I changed the locks. Now that`s original.
I can honestly say, through all the deaths in my past NO ONE CAME BACK FROM THE DEAD!
Get your act together, or you will be number three!
