    Ha! The show that took away my OL is gone! Glad GH is still around.

    I am not an avid GH watcher, I watched OL, but have tuned into the show several times now. Even if I didn't watch GH, I would be so for it staying on the air! We do not need another "make your lives better by listening to me" show. Glad at least one bit of escapism is still around in this reality/cheap to make tv world.

    Re: General Hospital

    So Jason and Franco were twins and Sam's baby is really Franco's? Please tell me that doesn't mean James Franco is coming back. Blech. If Sam suffers over it, I don't mind. She's such a little victim. I want her away from Jason. If they aren't going to reunite him with Elizabeth, then splitting him and Sam up would still be okay with me. I don't necessarily want Sam to be paired with John either, because that would mean splitting up him and Natalie and I always like them together. GH should hire Melissa Archer and give Nat a job at the PCPD. It would make more sense than Lulu working there!

    Although I still hate the Kate/Connie storyline, I like that it's tied to Sonny, because I don't like him either! The scenes with her "trapped" in the mirror were cringe-worthy. They're exactly why people make fun of soaps and what people who don't watch soaps think they're like all the time.

    I am enjoying Starr and Michael together. They've got good chemistry and the characters have a lot more in common than Starr probably wants to believe (hello, arrogant criminal dads....and needy mothers who hop from man to man!). I'm also still liking Carly and Johnny together and, while I was never a huge fan of Heather Webber, I like that they're bringing some GH history into the show. I watched back when Jason was born. Funny that he's now almost my age!

    So did SoapNet disappear from anyone else's cable lineup? I went to watch something yesterday and it was gone. Their website is still up, so I don't think they've gone under. When I tried to go to that channel, there was no channel there, so it's not like they changed the programming format or something. I'm really annoyed! They just started airing episodes of Veronica Mars!

    Re: General Hospital

    I am just so sad that I can't get into the GH storylines for about the past 6 months. As the other soaps were ending I was enjoying the reunions and completed stories. Now it seems that the GH writers are using the old stand bys of Sonny on trial, split personality (worst performance in history), Franco lives to torment Jason yet again, and Johnny hooking up with another older woman! Get creative!! Johnny has soooo much sex appeal, why can't they provide him with a romantic interest that is young and hot too? The sister/mommy complex is over for me. There aren't any couples interesting couples right now.

    Sorry for the rant! With the other soaps off the air I'm feeling a bit desperate to love my GH!

    I have to say I enjoy Connie more than Kate....maybe it's Kate's wishy washy personality I don't like--so uptight. She did a good job as Kate coming to in Johnny's bed today though. Those were some bang up scenes, with everyone's response being what you'd expect in "real" life. And while Connie had to blackmail Johnny into bed really, for her scheme to succeed they didn't need to actually have sex, just look like they had. So Johnny is a "bad guy" here.

    I agree that Starr and Michael seem to have great chemistry. It's also been nice to see Michael smile instead of constantly projecting angst...as when he was trying to talk to Jason about what a great dad he'd be (and planting the seed that he could even be a great dad to Franco's baby although he didn't know it).

    I am getting a little weirded out by all the references to Sam's "connection" to John--once or twice was a nice salute to long time multiple soap watchers who've seen them before, but now they seem to want us to take it seriously. Do we know who Sam's dad is? Could she be some secret byblow from his past?
