    Ignore me.. I had a few glasses of wine last night.

    I watched GH exactly ONE season with my mother when I was a kid, and it was the big Luke and Laura wedding season (and when they were being followed by that hit man). Other than that, I don't really know anything about the show.

    Rumors have it that GH may meet it end around June or July. Many of the long term actors who contract ran out early last year were put on part time, the remaining long term actors contract run out in June and were told they would only be renew on part time. The only actor who has a contract that will last to September is Steve Burton (Jason), but rumors has it he leaving along with the actor who play Robin, and the actor who play Sonny. So let see how many and who will die in the next few months.

    So who's next to leave?

    Robin's body was burned beyond recognition. Maybe she isn't dead.
    That was the conjecture on another site.

    I wonder if Maxie will realize that she caused the accident in the lab?

    I see a whole of angst happening in the next few days.

    Will Patrick relent and give Jason the protocol?
    I little bit of compassion by Sam toward Patrick before she asked about the protocol would have been nice.

    Well, they usually leave a loophole if a long time character wants to come back. And McCullough has been with the show since she was a child.

    It would have been more believable if she had just disappeared and stayed gone. But then we wouldn't have had the tearful goodbyes for sweeps week.

    This Maxie is an idiot. And not even that good looking. I hope that they eventually bring Storms back.

    I'm not sure that Storms would want to come back considering the mess the writers have put her character in.

    Maxie has always been a train wreck. It was just Storms was (IMO) likeable and cute. The new actress just isn't likeable, and while she is attractive, she isn't 'cute'. So the crap we would have taken as a reason to root for Maxie when it was Storms playing her, we now take as a reason to hate her (and the actress.)

    Not to mention, this NuMaxie is using a "girlie" voice that's at least two octaves above what Kirsten ever did. It annoys the hell outa me.

    Last Friday my tv went out and I missed GH--I may have missed thur. too--and today I thought I had the wrong show on. Am I supposed to know the people in the car? And then Helena had Luke tied up and said the blonde girl is her daughter? You can't say nothing ever happens on this show. It's going crazy......

    Apparently several of the denizens of the defunct OLTL will now descend on Port Chuck.

    If I'd wanted to watch OLTL, I'd have done it before it died.

    I guess it's a new jobs plan for former soap stars. :)

    I'm rather annoyed that they brought oltl to gh, there's plenty of cast members on gh who get little to no air time who deserve it more.

    If they kill off Cole, then I could see Starr and Michael getting together. I'd be ok with that. But if Blair and Todd and Dorian and whoever else, show up, then yeah, if I wanted to watch OLTL I would have watched OLTL.

    Wow! This week has been very intense. Four deaths in a week.
    Robin, Casandra/Irena, and Starr's daughter and boyfriend.

    Catching up with the OLTL characters is going to be tough.

    I'm wondering if Jason will become "old" Jason as was conjectured the first time around?

    I'm surprised they did kill off Cole and Starr's daughter. I really wasn't expecting that even though I mentioned that would clear the way for Starr and Michael. So did Sonny really shoot out the tire?

    All that time spent with introducing Irina and bang, Helena kills her? Today's ep was prempted here, so is there any chance Irina isn't really dead?

    And I was wondering the same thing about Jason. Wouldn't surprise me at all for him to wake up as Jason Quartermaine this time.

    They have set up a story line where Starr will be upset for her loss because Anthony told her that it was Sonny that shot out the tires. This will put a lot of trouble on Michael. I doubt it was Sonny.

    I'm upset that they didn't kill off Helena and Anthony this week.

    So they bring back Robert for just one show?

    I think it's time to re-title this show. Maybe call it Port Charles again as there isn't much going on with General Hospital anymore.

    I wonder why Holly looks so much older than Anna? Maybe she is--I guess she was on GH earlier. Nice to see them back, but does that mean we're on our last legs for sure? Is it canceled this summer for sure?

    Was today's episode a repeat? It didn't record.

    Ok, I quit watching OLtL about 20 years ago. I don't know these people or what their deal is and I DON'T CARE. Also, they are 3 of the most unattractive soap actors I've ever seen. Of all the cool people from AMC they could have brought in, why these guys?
