We all know what a wonderful job the writers are doing and have done.
However, I need to vent. I see two disturbing trends.
The first one, complained about in my 2012 review: Please find some other kinds of accidents to befall the citizens of Port Charles. Killer viruses, fires, and car accidents have been overdone. At this point, I ask myself why they don't just get some decent vaccines in there, invest in more fire extinguishers, and close the roads.
I know, what's left? We had a train wreck and a bus accident as well as various snowstorms.
I admit I don't have an answer but I don't have to: No one is paying me to write the show.
Here's another thing, a soap opera chestnut that on GH is starting to be very annoying. "I have something to tell you." "Okay, what?" "Well, what I have to tell you is --" Phone rings, doctor comes in with a deadly diagnosis, someone is so happy that you can't tell him or her the bad news.
Why do people take so long to say these things? Lately this technique seems constant, part of practically every story arc.
Common sense would say it is only going to be worse to tell the person later on, like five months later and you still don't look pregnant, you've gone back to your old girlfriend, or you've named your baby.
I say don't even bother trying. Decide to either not tell or work out a scheme of some kind, but this hesitation followed by a cell phone -- after five minutes of small talk and hesitation -- is driving me crazy.
My final note to the GH writers: You're better than this.
