I have been watching General Hospital since I was like 12 about to turn 13. I have watched the adventures of Luke & Laura, Robert & Holly, and Frisco & Felicia. I have watched so many great storylines and the writing has been excellent. However, over the past 10 years my General Hospital has gone down hill and the writing, the newer characters lack any substance to them in my opinion. I have it on right now and I can never seem to get into it like I once was. Sure, people outgrow their soaps as they get older, and I thought that I would never get tired of my show when I was younger. It looks like I have hit that point in ditching it and moving on until they change the writing team and bring back the charcters that made my soap number 1 in the ratings from 1980-1987. Since then it's lingered in at around 2, but over the past 5 years they rank anywhere from 3-7. Something has to give with my soap, and I feel that these current writers have done my show an injustice with their weak writing and the 5 to 6 actors they have on everyday. Most of the storyline are rehashed and recycled to some degree with the same charcters over the past 12 years. A change is very much needed! Okay, after writing this I know i'll be razed a little, but hey, if it's all in good fun I have no problem with this. lol Who else watches General Hospital and feels the same as I do?

It takes big brass nuts to make that admission, until work conflicted with TV predating VCR's I watched All My Children.....

Every so often if i'm home i'll watch All My Children, and GH. I don't get into it as much as i did when i was in high school. The show's i try not to miss are on during primetime. CSI, Grey's Anatomy, Las Vegas, Cold Case, are a few. I don't think there is anything wrong with a man watching soaps, it's just rare to see one admit it!

Gee, there's just to much sex and violence on those shows for me: give me Mr. Rodgers any day.

I love General Hospital!! But I'm like you, the plot lines are so weak. I mean how many times is Helena going to be reserected? Give me a break!! I've gotten to the point where I go to soap opera digest online and read the recap because it's not worth an hour of my day anymore to watch. It's really disapointing.

I was so upset when they brought Laura back for only a few weeks. She's like one of my all time favorites and I just can't understand how bringing her out for a few weeks and then putting her back in catatonia state is good story.

Yeah, The writers really need to be fired. They have really messed up our show witht he weak writing and bringing back old favorites to only stick around for a limited run. This is by far the worst I have seen this show be the way it is!

They need to bring back Heather and Scotty to cause some trouble. What ever happened to Rick & Leslie? Jeff? I haven't seen the show in well over 20 years. Sounds like I haven't missed anything...especially an hour out of my day.

Heather was one of those that had come back about 3 years ago, and then the weak sroryline dried up. Scott Baldwin is due back on the show after the first of the year some time after being away for about two years. Luke Spencer is off on his regular adventures until the actor comes back from vacation again. lol Robert Scorpio has been brought back about 3-4 months ago, and he's been reduced to backburner which is a HUGE mistake. he hasn't been on for close to 3 weeks now. This show is such a sorry ass show anymore!

Ok I have a confession to make Straddle. I at one time was addicted to GH. It all started innocently enough when I was laid up at home for a couple of months recovering from a motorcycle accident. The only thing on the tube it seemed like was soaps and I started to watch GH. It was amazing how I was drawn to it and needed it like a fix. That was years ago and I don't know much about the story line or plots anymore, but just wanted to post serious for a change.

Didn't we have this discussion once before?

I watched GH when I was in high school...when the Cassidines tried to freeze Port Charles and Scorpio saved the day. Ah...those were the days!

Ya know....I've never watched a soap in my life....Just doesn't catch my interest....just seems so predictable and fake.....but that's only my opinion....You rock on with GH!!!
