Because the producer who brought down the curtains on OLTL is now doing the same on “One Life to Live at General Hospital” and the cast of OLTL who still have contracts were put to work on what left of GH. The soap will likely die in June or July.

This came from SoapZone:

Ed Martin is a Huffington Post writer and friend to world-renowned soap columnist, formerly of Soap Opera Weekly’s “Critical Condition,” Marlena De Lacroix. In his March 2nd guest column, “General Hospital: Can This Show Be Saved?” Martin gave low grades to the OLTL regime taking over thus far (give or take two weeks). His big beefs are the way they rushed Robin’s explosive death as some afterthought, the continued showcase of the mob, and the senseless, exploitative death of yet another child (OLTL’s Hope). Martin is tired of the mob focus and would rather Sonny, Jason, and Carly be gone, that wretched Luke too. Here’s a brilliant excerpt:

>> The best suggestion here would be to eliminate the characters whose storylines have brought the show to its knees. Specifically, I’m talking about Sonny, Jason and mobster-hopping bitch-on-wheels Carly Jacks (Laura Wright). Carly might be interesting if Nurse Bobbie Spencer (Jacklyn Zeman) came back to town and held her daughter accountable for her atrocious behavior over the years, and I could deal with Jason if his brain problems of late resulted in the return of the mild-mannered Jason from the good old days. (How would that Jason deal with the memories of all the lives he took during the last 15 years?) But Sonny has got to go, preferably in a violent manner that would stir up every character on the canvas and send them reeling. Imagine the stories that could be told! I’d also like to see the miserable wretch that was once Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) go away and stay away. The utter destruction of this once uniquely captivating character has been terrible to watch. He’s beyond repair, and it’s best to simply send him on his way. >>

I agree with everything, too bad it will not happen.

This show cannot afford “actors”, but now use the iPad.

Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) had a guest role on Criminal Minds tonight.
So there is life after GH.

I would like to see Steve Burton (Jason) and Brandon Banash (?) (Johnny) in prime time.

Just when the show seems to pick up some pace, they drag out the Jason and Maxie stories. How long will it take for Maxie to explain how she killed Robin? And will Jason have a relapse now that he knows that Robin is dead? And will Sam now have a medical problem when she walks in on Carly?

Just saw Max on Wednesday' s Psych.

What do you all think of the Kate/Connie take? I am guessing she is the one who shot out the tires on Anthony's car.

I do like that Starr is on the show. I think that her and Michael will eventually end up bonding together over Cole/Hope and Abby's death. Plus both of their fathers are crime folks so to speak.

I am loving Johnny and Carly together.

I can't believe that Coleman let Luke buy/rename Jake's!

So what's with the background audio lately?

It almost drowns out the dialog.

And I also have to say WTF. Too many story arcs going on at the same time.

Since they seem to be focusing on that DVD that Franco sent to Sam & Jason, I think they are leading us toward Franco being the one that saved(?) Robin. But, I'm leaning toward Helena. Is Lisa really dead?

I'm wondering if Robin doesn't get her HIV meds that we may end up going through another round of her dying. How long before she's rescued?

Johnny can't shave because he's too busy chasing Kate/Connie and Carly.

I guess if one follows Soap Opera Rules 101, we shouldn't be that surprised Robin wasn't really dead. Is there ever a soap person that is burnt beyond recognition that is really dead? LOL

That said....I thought it had been widely reported that the actress was leaving? Has she changed her mind?

So, a lot has happened in the last week.

The important thing is that Jason and Franco are fraternal twins. And, now Sam is afraid that the baby might still be Franco's. I see another round of DNA tests being run, these will have to be a bit more extensive to determine the differences between fraternal twins. If they were identical twins, that would be another problem.

And, have I mentioned before that there are too many story arcs going on right now?

What the fu . . . ? Vampires and twins and psychos . . (Oh, my). What, there weren't enough drama queens already? And they have to bring in another one? Even if Ms Storms ever does come back, how is she gonna rehabilitate the whack job her character has become?

I thought the Llanview hillbillies were just in town for sweeps. Are they taking up residence now? That's got to piss off the GH regulars - less screen time for them = less money.

This show is rapidly turning into a giant pile of I-don't-give-a-crap-anymore.

BTW, I guessed that Robin would back - just not this soon.

I'm enjoying the show more recently than I have in a long time, with the exception of the Maxie crap, and that just cause I don't care for that actress in that role. I'm mostly FFing through that stuff.

Well, back in the day, (circa 1997) there was a GH spinoff called 'Port Charles'. Several regulars from GH transferred over. A few years in, the show went all Goth and there were angels, vampires and all sorts of evil doins'.

Kelly Monaco (Sam) was there as the sinister (and seductive) Livvie and Det. McBain (forget his real name), was a rock star/vampire. Livvie, at one point killed "McBain" with a stake through the heart.

That's what all the coy dialog between Sam and McBain was about at Robin's funeral.

Sam: "Don't I know you?"

McBain: "My wife lied to me. It was like . . a stake through the heart." (Sumpin' like that).

A call back to their previous lives together.

I vaguely remember Port Charles, but must have stopped watching before any of that happened.

I can't stand the Connie/Kate crap and it annoys me everytime she keeps taking her hair down.

I also don't give a crap about any of the OLTL characters.

Yeah, it got pretty silly after the change over, but still somewhat entertaining. I mainly watched because there were cute women in the cast.

I kept thinking they were going to come up with something in Sam's past to explain why she thought she knew him. Thanks for the explanation. I remember Kelly Monaco on PC, but not the other guy.

So now Sam is going to keep another secret from Jason? I guess they can't be happy for long so this is how TPTB handle it? Ugh.

I wasn't happy with the new actress playing Kate, but now that they've introduced Connie, I think she's doing a good job.

I don't think the 'old' Kate could have done this newest storyline.

How long are we going to have to suffer through Sam's situation?

As I've stated before, there are too many stories going on right now.
Of course, they are all tied together somehow.

This coming week could be interesting.

Will Kate revert to Connie in the courtroom? And admit that the gun is hers?
But, that doesn't mean anything as to who shot out the tires.

Is the kid Jason's or Franco's? They are trying to lean us toward Franco.

Can we please put Heather away?

When will Robin reappear? And thus free Maxie from killing her.
Of course, there is still the confession about Lisa.
