    Wait, what just happened? They just left her unattended on the floor, playing possum. Come on! There has to be SOME element of reality here.
    Count your blessings!

    I haven't watched GH since the return of Brenduh. I really can't stand Jax(Candyboy he works my last nerve with his attitude of superiority.

    Argh. When the previews said Spinelli would wake up with a new personality, I was hoping it would be a less annoying one.

    Re: General Hospital

    GH is really outdoing itself right now --- in a bad way. The episodes are just stupid and ridiculous and pretty much boring. Right now there's barely a story line that's worth watching. Spinelli, ughhhhhh, I have no words except GO AWAY! Lulu has become so tedious with her obsession to save Luke -- and Luke has become a total characature of his former self. Anthony --- enough already with the pseudo-charming/crazy routine! The fake ELQ set --- so tacky and 1950s looking. Carly -- get over yourself!

    I don't know --- maybe it's just a phase and the storylines will improve but right now I'm just so grateful that I'm TIVOing the episodes so that I can fast-forward through all the garbage.

    Re: General Hospital

    This Spinelli storyline is cringe-worthy. When will it end? I can't even watch much of Spin when he's "normal," but this is even worse. I was actually rooting for Anthony to shoot him today. I'm sure Bradford Anderson is a very nice guy, but he's not a good actor. These last few weeks have felt like a high school play.

    Hopefully, we're almost to the end of the Bob Guza-written episodes. I'm more than ready to see Garin Wolf's vision of PC. Since he wrote for Night Shift and has been with GH for a long time, I'm going to remain optimistic.

    As to the highlighted, I totally disagree. I think the guy has done two totally opposite diverse roles & done both of them well enough to make you dislike them both. I think he is really good.

    Re: General Hospital

    I think there's more skill in subtlety. Both versions of Spinelli are over-the-top caricatures. I could barely stomach the character when he first started and he's only gotten more annoying, IMO.

    Re: General Hospital

    I thought this interview with Garrin Wolf was pretty encouraging. I only hope he gets the chance to save the show before Frons decides to cancel it: General Hospital's New Head Writer Garin Wolf Looks to the Future - Today's News: Our Take | TVGuide.com

    No real spoilers, BTW. He speaks in broad strokes and doesn't give much of anything away.
