PS.  Ratings for GH are at an all time low.  I am not surprised that jumping in last year you didnt much care for the show. I am hearing at different sites that some major changes may be on the way. In fact, Darcy over at soapscope.net has started a letter writing campaign to appeal to ABC to basically put the hospital back in GH (less sonny centric story telling, full use of the cast etc.)

found this in another thread in this Forum ...

Lauren, I so understand it ... I dropped the show from my viewing schedule around that time ... I too miss the Hospital! :wink:

I've seen a couple of sites with a spoiler that there will be an upcoming storyline with Bobbie being fired from the hospital -- durant suing over alleged mistakes during his operation. More air time for Jackie Zeman is always a step in the right direction and I liked her scenes with Carly and Tony this week a lot.

There was a rumor this past week that Guza and Pratt, the head writers, may be reigned in a bit due to the low ratings. The rumor went as far as to have them quitting in disgust. While I am starting to believe that was a bit of wishful thing from the folks over at datalounge, I do believe we will see some changes.

Well, it sure needs re-tooling ... or maybe that's the problem ... stop re-tooling and go back to the magic of the Luke / Laura / Scorpio days ... or am I just living in the past again? :oops:

I think there may have been drinking problems with one of the key persons back in that age and that may be why they havent brought him back. I understand Tony Geary has advocated this particular person's return for the longest time.

That rumour is fact and was widely reported in mainstream media ... but they would have to wipe away a lot of the plots as a dream to resurrect those days now ... JMHO.

Come on -- Anna is already back from the dead as is Faison-- not much of a stretch to bring back Robert too! No bodies = not dead in the land of soaps!

They are my all time favorite soap couple. I remember the night that he called her frumpy looking, so she put on a little nightie and showed up at his house. She got him all worked up, tied him up with her stockings to a post and left him there -- ALL NIGHT.

Now THATS good soap :D

I think Finola Hughes left AMC because she wanted to go back to the West Coast and she has the What Not to Wear show so she didnt need the work. The right contracts could get her and tristan to resign.

Yup I am soooooooooooo stuck in the past ... I want the good ole days ... I remember the Luke/Laura wedding and being glued to the set ... fond memories! That storyline gave Daytime continuing stories their due and proper attention ...

I am worried it was all squandered, but I keep hoping! :wink:

I have to say that I agree on so many things that I just thought it prudent to say my own thing...

As far as Laura - WTF? That story line made no sense to get rid of her. They tried to cover up a bad move and did it shamefully. This woman has made it her life to venture the marble in different personalities that she couldn't develop one permanently when so traumatized? Whatever...

The new Carly SUCKS! Yeah, I said it. She is so f'g horrible I have no words left to describe it except explicitives. I don't even watch her crap story lines anymore and I loved the original Carly b/c she had some crappy stuff but you paid attention b/c she portrayed the character well.

The new Edward Quartermaine SUCKS! No way he should've been cast b/c he looks like he should be Alan's brother.

The new Felicia - somewhat acceptable but only b/c she portrays a small part of what Felicia used to be. You don't take dynamic characters and make them mediocre.

I can't believe they brought a new Maxie to have her go through losing her heart again. But then this is the same show that had us travelling to the center of the earth is some time warp for a precious jewel that controlled families. Pffft...I stopped watching then too...

Anyway...I watch it b/c I started a new generation w/my daughters...so...we keep trying to hope for the ole days...

Jason assures Michael that his therapist won't reveal how A.J. died. Nikolas explains to a grateful Courtney how he came to her rescue after she lost control of her car during the storm. Though Elizabeth wonders aloud if his marriage proposal was prompted by the surrogacy arrangement with Jax, Lucky reminds the love of his life how he's hoped for years that they would someday become husband and wife. Murphy instructs Jenna to lure Jesse and Maxie out of the cabin. Ric and Alexis discuss names for their new baby. Nikolas and Courtney return to the Alcazar mansion just as Lucky and Elizabeth happily announce their engagement. As the couple accepts congratulations from the rest of the party guests, Jax quietly tells Courtney there may be legal complications if Elizabeth weds before giving birth to their child. Alexis confides to Ric her hope that she'll be a much better mother the second time around.

Though Sonny offers to go for help for Alexis, Lorenzo insists on heading out into the hurricane to find medical assistance. After breaking open a bottle of champagne out in the barn, Courtney and Nikolas continue to share confidences.

Jesse brings Maxie back to the hospital to face the irate chief of police. Ric hesitantly suggests to Alexis that they forge ahead with their relationship instead of going through with the divorce. Jax wanders out to the barn to look for his bride and finds her holding Nikolas' head in her lap. Elizabeth proposes to Lucky. Carly has a flash of memory about Charlotte as Reese leans over her.

Ignoring Jesse's warnings, Maxie does some snooping through Murphy's personnel file and remains unrepentant even after her father catches her red-handed. Though Reese encourages him to accept a plea bargain on Michael's behalf, Sonny feels certain Durant will pursue a full court press against the boy once he's in custody. Meanwhile, in the tunnels on Spoon Island, Sam and Jason debate the consequences of taking Michael on the lam. Skeptical about the charges she's leveled against Murphy, Lucky gently reminds Maxie how she's made some bad mistakes in the past. Stalling for time, Sonny agrees to deliver Michael to Durant in exchange for full amnesty for Jason and Sam. At Windemere, Emily delivers an entirely different message to her brother. Maxie refuses to take no for an answer from Jesse, who rewards her stubbornness with a kiss. Carly asks Sonny to take her to Michael one last time before they have to say goodbye.

Emily and Nikolas continue to grow further apart. Though Sonny insists he only kept her out of the loop to protect her from prosecution, Reese suspects she still hasn't heard the whole story. Jax reminds Courtney that she will always be their baby's mother. Back at the precinct house, Mac berates both Jesse and Lucky for putting Maxie in jeopardy. John brings Emily in for questioning about her fugitive nephew. Later, Nikolas is hurt to learn that his wife called Sonny for help instead of turning to him.

GH SUPERCOUPLE SPLITS

Sadly, life is imitating soaps for General Hospital stars Tyler Christopher and Natalia Livingston, whose love is on the rocks both in real life and in reel life. To refresh your memory, Tyler and Natalia were playfully "outed" as a couple during Walt Willey's faux talk show at last November's ABC Super Soap Weekend in Orlando, Fla. A setside spy now confirms to TVGuide.com that their approximately nine-month relationship has reached its conclusion for reasons I'm far too gentlemanly to pry into. (Translation: Um, I actually don't know.)

Fans figured Tyler and Natalia were in Splitsville when the twosome separately attended GH's annual fan-club weekend last month in Southern California. Livingston, a recent Daytime Emmy winner, was also conspicuously absent from her BF's personal fan gathering. (Back when Tyler was dating Vanessa Marcil
