General Hospital: What's in a Name??


How many times can they keep switching up the Balkan story? Geesh...he and Suzy haven't seen each other for HOW many years but they are married? It's just stupid. I still say it just goes to show you how the writing changes and nothing is planned out--Suzanne is staying with Brenda in Paris-- and yet he's trying to kidnap her. Ah..forget it. One of my big bug a boos with GH is that they can't twist or surprise anymore because the stories just keep getting rewritten on a whim.  Great stories are planned out and the pieces weave together at the end!! Suzanne's real name is Stephanie? Why? ugh. I think Suzy calls "Theo" Theo even when they are alone-- but I've never thought that was his name. They've never said his real name. Today Suzanne says he IS Theo--but when he first came to town he was on the phone and said he "Assumed the identity" of Theo Hoffman to get Diane to hire him. Didn't he? Am I just on crack? What!?
I'm so confused. 
Balkan's "accent"...when he was Theo--he used his "pseudo-British" accent..then when he was The Balkan he used a Brooklyn one...now he's with Suzanne and doesn't have to use  a fake one ans talks like  "Theo" did. Why did he ever use that fake one??!


GET THIS!! You know, "Jules"...Theo's butler on  GH??  His real life daughter (Francesca Cistone is going to play the new Emma!! Find out about it on SID. Even though reports said she was being aged, it looks like the new girlie is only a bit older than the ones now. I wonder if he'll be the new "Spinelli" if Bradford leaves for his new show?? Although the media nets show him getting stabbed, he can have a twin??  Hahaaa. 

                                               After the Edward Carnival Accident....

Here's the Video preview of Jake's upcoming story.  It's pretty powerful. Jason's even watching the operation ---oy. Watching JJ and TG is just :sob: .... Jake's been unlucky since he was born! Geesh. I hope Cam didn't leave the door open. He's the Willie Oleson of GH! LOL..troublemaker.


GENERAL HOSPITAL TODAY: 
Why can't they balance airtime out?? WTF. Lante's on again, at the PCPD chewing the fat, doing nothing-- they've been on for days. Why not show some other characters? Where's Mac? Ugh. Pisses me off.  I do think Kate needs to be on too--Lulu should get out of the PCPD and into Crimson. Remember Crimson??




Suzanne's going to go to the cave with the rest of them-- Spinelli should have put on a mining hat! ahahhaa... Brenda got injected with some lovely toxins. Bo-toxins?? She screamed loud enough...geesh. Scared my doggie. Brenda is Sleeping Beauty. Or as someone said on Twitter: Snow White with the dwarfs looking for her! LOL


Lisa and Johnny...just ewwww. I think I've seen Lisa's lavender and black bra enough, thank you. Couch sex, no one has a bed.


Kristina flashback to the wedding. Awww.  How obvious is it that Maya is never on anymore???  I know the girl has a new show but either recast or have her leave. Hell, Maya DOES  walk into Kelly's! WOW.. call me shocked.
They made Lexi look older today...her makeup was perfect.




BTW, SID tweeted that the guy that plays "Charlie" might be out at #OLTL which would make sense. He bugs me anyway.

Lisa leaves her bra on during sex? I guess Johnny is not a boob man.

Carrie said...

Based on the first paragraph alone I don't know how you watch GH. The TG/JJ scene doesn't look powerful.

Didn't watch the promo clip yet. Was Becky even in it?

Mayan were ADORABLE today! Glad to see Maya's face.

Andrea said...

The video was all about Jason. No shock there. Jason was told to give his kid up? Um, I don't think so. At the beginning maybe, but he was the one to make the decisions after Michael got shot and Jake got kidnapped. The promo video pretty much shows Liz was the reason that Jason didn't get to raise his kid...Stupid promo to go with stupid writing.
I would love to see Jake live and this is how Jason finally claims his kid. Instead we will get to see all of poor, poor Jason's angst and probably hardly any of Lucky's. Even though Lucky is Jakes father in every way but one.

Oh geeze, SHOOT ME! If this is going to be all about Jason "the perfect dad never given a chance... ruined by selfish Liz" you can count me the fuck OUT!

I CANNOT STAND General Hospital! What has happened???

Anonymous said...

Can we focus on Liz the distraught, guilt ridden mother, instead of Jason the deadbeat hero who is just hot off being the center of a near-ending story? My God...

kdmask said...

Carrie, you didn't like the JJ/TG scene??

Anonymous said...

Oh my, I sure hope this isn;t going to make Liz look like the bad one, AGAIN. Should we send them the U tube video of thwe courtroom scene where Jason sternly told Liz to stay away from him and keep Jake away too as it was too dangerous? And please don't make this accident Liz's fault for not watching him.

As for Maya, I could care less. get rid of her, no sparks IMO with Ethan.

All i have to say about today's show is THANK GOD THEY DID NOT SHOW THE LISA/JOHNNY SHOWER/SEX SCENE!!!!

Mrs. B said...

I agree, no Ethan & Maya on my screen either. It almost teases their fans, anyway. Lisa & johnny don't do much for me but Johnny is so hot I'll suffer through it ; )

This whole Jake situation is making me ill. I can only suggest anyone and everyone disgusted start making noise, therefore you may be able to save this kids life. At the very least have a helena/franco swoop in after giving him a drug to appear dead.

Agreed. Or how about the hotel scene where Liz wanted Jason to take control, make the decision, claim Jake, and insist on them becoming a family.. stop leaving it solely up to her.

As Jason replied, "You're the mother, I respect whatever your decision is".

Anonymous said...

Ugh! I hate the fact that the writers are 'killing' Jake (seems so random and stupid) and I hate the position they've put Liz in her past story lines... "I want Jason... I want Lucky... no, wait, Nikolas... I see Lucky falling for that fake Irish girl, so I better fall back in love with him, that's my final answer. Shoot, Brooke likes Nik so I better use who I think is his child to lure him back... hmmm, I wonder if Sonny's dad is out of rehab yet, I don't think he's seeing anybody."

Frisco said...

Forgot to mention Kristina is SCARY when it comes to Ethan. She is a Lisa in the making.

Trixie said...

I think that we all should start a writing campaign to GH about how HORRIBLE the writing is and that Guza needs to GO!!!

We love the actors. We love the show. But, we all hate the WRITING!!!!!

GET UNITED!!!!!

Dori said...

I would just like to point out that there is absolutely NO ONE that is forcing ANY of us to watch GH!! You can like the show or not. You can hate the writers, bitch about Jason, call Liz a Lizzard...whatever; but in the end the same truth holds: If you don't like the show then DON'T watch it!!! Simple as that!

Anonymous said...

I think all of us here, at one point or another, loved the show. The writing is particularly upsetting because many of us know how good the show can be. Rather than just not watching, I think the more productive thing IS to speak up and voice constructive criticism about it and about Guza. (Ex. The whole Sam-Brenda swap plot had so many holes in it, I could drive that delivery truck through it.)

It's also maddening because in the real world, bad job performance = pink slip, but Guza is allowed to go on his merry way, writing more inane stories that make no sense.

On a positive note, I enjoyed Matt and Maxie today, and the first Kristina/Ethan scene. Both duos are adorable and the actors have great chem. They're the only duos that really make me smile. Naturally, they're rarely on! :(

Mabby was great for me too for awhile, but they are still having the same conversation ad nauseum and I have lost patience with it.

Kristina looked gorgeous today.

Andrea said...

Dori, if we all quit watching GH because we are tired if it, GH would be off the air. Some of us have been fans for 15 years and just want it to get better. I personally can't help watching it because I pray that the writing will get better. After Jake dies, I will be leaving because I have finally given up, but I may still come on here and rant and that is because I just want to. You will have to get over it.
We have our opinions, so if you don't like our ranting about what is going on, go elsewhere...

Mamaspat Ole said...

I think everyone who has watched GH for a long time just keep watching waiting,hopeing,waiting,watching its not getting any better from what yall are saying.Me personally I'm not watching it anymore.But the need of dropping the F bomb in here is not needed I say a** to not offend anyone.All we can do is pray for a miracle or stop watching as I have.

Anonymous said...

Dori, these days I just think people watch out of old habit and sordid loyalty to the genre, or in particular GH. Also, many continue to watch out of hopes that "It'll get better.."

I complain and rant not out of sport or because I actively harp on the negative, but there's just sooo many holes, unfairness, lack of cohesion, etc. that I HAVE to voice! While I know it's probably not productive, I feel better once it's off my chest.

Anonymous said...

Kristina is eventually going to get her man, probably when she least expects it. Anyone can see that coming down the street. lol

Anonymous said...

If Franco pulls off faking cute lil Jake's death, I will see every movie James Franco ever makes from here on out and never complain about his drop in storylines on GH ever again lol

Anonymous said...

I think that would be a great way to do this, have Franco fake Jake's death!

AntJoan said...

Karen, I don't remember Theo saying he was assuming Theo Hoffman's identity, and I pretty much watch and listen to every moment of GH. I think he always was meant to be Theo Hoffman, that's why Suzanne (or whatever HER name is) calls him that.

Love4dogs said...

I agree about the Theo accent. I thought the British-ish accent was the "fake" one.

Anonymous said...

from the preview , jake's death will be all about jason. do any other characters matter. liz has been the only constant in this boy's life but it won't matter only st. jasus. as far as lucky goes he is always crying about something. I prefer GV as lucky.

mosbp2003 said...

Dori, many of those that comment here are long time GH fans who know what the show once was and continue to watch in the hopes that someday it can return to what it used to be. They do not want it canceled, but love the show and want it to improve. They come here to write and vent for what has been and what could be. If you cannot handle that, than this may not be the place for you to be. I have been watching GH since Bobbie Spencer was dating Noah Drake, and I have determined that I have had enough and with Jake's death, I will be done. I barely watch anymore anyway. Based on recent comments, I deleted the last two episodes off my dvr last nigt without watching. Even though I won't be watching anymore, I will continue to come here, to read the posts, to comment, to commiserate with other fans and to hope that things will improve...

Carrie said...

Karen I mean DOES look power! Typo mostly because I was trying to refrain from complaining about the Jason centricness of the commercial! The Tony/JJ stuff looks great!

LindaV said...

I luv Matt and Maxie - they are a much more entertaining couple than Lante. We should see them more. I though VMG did an excellent job yesterday. Whoever told her to play Brenda so weak and fragile for so long really almost ruined the character, but she is a good actress. Dread the Jake debacle but for those of us who really watch for the spectacular acting it should be somewhat rewarding.

Anonymous said...

So can someone tell me how Sonny got to Brenda and past Suzanne and Theo when there was only one way in?

kdmask said...

Ok on the Theo identity..I could have sworn that Diane said she checked him out with the NY people and then Theo was on the phone saying stuff about it. Oh well!!
I still say the story is all over the place! LOL
