    I was watching Days back then. That put me over the edge & I quit watching for quite a while, until that writer left.
    It really was embarrasing for the viewers. Days became the laughingstock of the TV world. People I knew teased me about watching it because it was so stupid.

    Re: General Hospital

    Hey, hey, I called it---I'm guessing this is the daytime soap world's first gay triangle? I'm a little shocked at Lucas though....sounds like it was a hop into bed at first meeting type thing, and he seemed too mature to be into that, upset at his mom for keeping secrets and his dad's return from the dead or not. And, for someone as shallow as Brad has been... I think Lucas is cuter, even if a guy who actually lives in PC has more long term potential. And here I thought they'd be vying for Felix's affections, or Lucas', not Brad's!
    A lot of people seem to know Ohbrect.... And oops, Duke is in the soup with Anna, just as he's about to get shot. Maybe she will save him, then dump him. Too bad we all know that

    You know the storylines are getting boring when this thread keeps going down for lack of posts.

    Re: General Hospital

    Read an interview with the actor who plays Brad, who is straight, married, etc.... when he was hired and for the first while he didn't know Brad was gay and it took him a while to figure it out from the script. He said he'd tried out for gay parts before and didn't get them, that he'd tried to "act gay", and for this one, where he just acted like a guy, albeit a sleazy one, he got it. Live and learn!
    Speaking of Brad... some of you old timers, back when Robin was a child and was kidnapped by an Asian gang (because she had a doll with black pearls for eyes or something, but no one knew where the pearls were), is that the same gang that Brad was referring to....that his dad and grandfather were the head of? Small world, as I think Anna and Robert were instrumental in getting Robin back.

    Re: General Hospital

    I remember the kidnapping, but I don't remember a gang name. I just googled and all I could find was the mention of the Asian Quarter. Neighborhood or gang name, I don't know.

    Could be a connection there. We already know they're aren't any coincidences in Port Charles!

    Re: General Hospital

    I guess the Asian Quarter is gone (where all the hippies live now, or whatever Brad said), so presumably the gangs are, too--please, we don't need a 3rd gang popping up! I'm hoping that background for Brad was just a little nod to the older fans.

    ETA---I don't think GH slid down the page because it's gotten boring (I mean realistically they couldn't keep up the level of action of the Nurses' Ball forever!), but rather that a number of shows had a finale before the Olympics, so got more action. I also suspect things may be being set up for the Feb. sweeps.

    Does anyone think Silas's brother/Rafe's dad, is the one who prescribed the liquid antidepressant? Or is it just so obvious no one here is taking about it? Has the TJ thing just gone away??? SMH

    Re: General Hospital

    Oh, wow, never thought of that! Duh! Not sure why he'd want to kill off the wife...maybe thought he was doing his bro a favor, or maybe he thought it would hurt him, not clear on their relationship from the serial killer's point of view. Poor Rafe, it would be all over the papers again who his dad was...

    Re: General Hospital

    I don't think that storyline went over nearly as well as TPTB hoped.
    You notice that it hasn't even been mentioned since. Even when Silas first came on the scene, I believe there may have been a brief mention by Sam but nothing more. I'm not even sure about that. Just enough to set up the Uncle/Nephew relationship to keep Rafe on the show.(Darn!)

    I'm still watching & patiently waiting for February Sweeps, but I've been bored with it lately.
    The Silas/his wife storyline & the Nikolas/Britt/baby switch storylines are about all that interest me now. The Chief of Staff bit was a bit of a shocker surprise, but that's about all it was.

    Robert is leaving very soon.
    I hope they do something interesting with that.
