SO, I hear General Hospital Today was one BIG FAIL??

Holy Crap... I go on twitter and people are BUGGIN' over today's show..one person said it was the worst show in the HISTORY OF GH!! LMAO. Then, a ton of people agreed!!! ahahahaa.


Horrible, Karen. Jason insults and death threats, calling for TPTB collective firing, GH idiocy, all across the board! lol @ComplainnShade


Whoever made the decision at GH not to show Jake's memorial sux. #GH @MizVikke

@WubsNet You only missed the worst show ever. Read the #GH timeline. Ridiculous. Someone said it perfectly- we got the "hi-lights reel"  @matchboxGinny

@WubsNet Today's Memorial was like GH kicked us while we were down. @lavenderewe

SO YOU TELL me what you thought??! I forgot to DVR it, even though I knew I"d be gone. DUH. I'll have to catch it online.

Don't waste your time. they couldn't even focus the show on Jake. they had to throw Brenda's birthday in...so dumb!

Lame and choppy...Liz was in her pj's, goes upstairs to get dressed to go to the memorial, then Lulu's at Crimson with Dante crying AFTER the memorial...ummm. Suckage.

Yeah. Not even worth it. I went to youtube to catch the episode and saw that they didn't even show the memorial. Not only do they have the audacity to kill off probably the one person who is related to every core family on the show, but they don't even have the respect to show a funeral for him.

I quit watching a full episode months ago. Now, I'm done. Not even Patrick and Robin being back together can entice me to watch the Sonny/Jason/Carly/Brenda show.

I don't know, but I think reading the angry Twitter feed was much more entertaining than the show itself.

just what I thought, killing off JAKE, was for a jasam baby. horrible writing. do they think a jasam baby will replace JAKE?

Sooooooo bad. I could not believe they did not show anything from the memorial for Jake. Why did they kill him off? Brenda's birthday; so random. Abby/Michael; who cares? Continuity has always been an issues with GH as of late, but this whole Jake dying/Joss living in 24 hours to a memorial the next day is beyond the worst. Shawn in/Jax out. I have been watching since 1976 and I am so disappointed in what they are doing this our show. I'm sure they will do nothing to commemorate the 48th anniversary either. Awful.

I don't agree. I think you should watch it. Some scenes were pretty good. Jason's scenes were very good and all the other actors were great.
I personally didn't like Mabby scenes (boring!!) and S/B (unnecessary).

Today was a Scary Mary Sue Price day so I'm not surprised it sucked today.

I said last week that I wouldn't be surprised if they just had the characters talk about the memorial after the fact than actually show the memorial...it is Guza's MO. When was the last funeral actually shown on GH? It would cost too much money to have that many cast members in the same scene- especially so soon after the wedding reception with no staff members...Guza has to save money for click,booms and stunt guest appearances and short term returns...

just got an email that genie francis is joining Y&R as cane's mom. GHs lost is Y&Rs gain. the great thing is that her child's father is played by the one & only robert scorpio. she'll give jill a run for her money.

My disappointment in the writing of GH hit an all time low today. As a 30yr+ viewer I feel so cheated. This is NOT my soap. My soap used to write interesting, well-connected, intriguing, thought-provoking, sometimes really funny, quirky, "can't wait to watch and watch again" storylines. It's been going down hill for years, but now with Jake's death storyline being so poorly written, directed, edited (but always well acted)...it makes it easy to walk away from my favorite soap. Although, I will keep holding out hope that the writers are just "playing with us" and this was all a dream Carly had or that Franco kidnapped legacy character, long-time storyline potential baby Jake..but we know the writers aren't that smart...right?

Kayla said...

No actual memorial...yet we get all these Abby/Michael scenes, as well as Lisa/Kristina.. and Lulu talking about how she couldn't believe her dad wasn't there? What the HELL??? GMAB GH writers today's show was just shameful :(

I watched this show from the very beginning. Of course that puts me out of the demo they look toward, but their shortsightedness fails to see I control their demo by having children who watch because I watch. Not much longer will we watch. Today I watched a hit man tell Luke he had to live with what he did to Jake. A hit man told Luke he had to live with an accident. GMAB! Does Jason live with his killings? Why yes he does and Carly and Sam cheer his murderous ways.
First- Jason on your longest day you can't out think, out play, out hero or out cool Luke.
Second- Jason you are a murderer. You kill people. Sit down and shut up. Reading to Joss and talking about Africa doesn't make you less a murderer. And it doesn't make you more of a father to Jake. You won't be a father to a replacement child.
I use to love Jason. When he was a baby and Susan was killed. When he began living with Monica and Alan and Monica grew to love him. During his teen years and even after he became Jason Morgan I thought I saw a spark of goodness left in him with Robin and Elizabeth. I was wrong.
I hate to think I'm going to leave GH but most likely I will and with GH I'll also be leaving ABC. I will cancel the Disney trip and go to Universal. I wrote to tell them this and I'm writing here-two first for me.

They had a real memorial for Emily.

Guza actually thinks this is the way to tell the story of a dead four year old? Why hasn't this man been fired yet? If he thinks for one second this is comparable to the Maxie/BJ story, he should not only be fired but be excommunicated from the entertainment industry for the rest of his life. I can not believe they didn't even show the memorial. the pace of this story, the holes and now this? Wow.

It's another slap in liason fans faces. I did not watch online for a weeks and don't watch on tv.

Andrea said...

No Elizabeth with Lucky or Jason? STUPID! On the day of Jakes memorial, Lucky should be the one at Liz's house, not Nikolas.
Good to see Carly going to the memorial for Jake, and her and Jax finally talking to Liz. It was played very awkwardly. Not sure if that was how it was supposed to be played... I'm hoping that Carly and Liz get more scenes together after this.
I thought Sam comforting Jason was better than when she tried to comfort him when Jake first died, but can't she wear something a little less reveiling to a memorial? I'm not a prude, but I know better than to pick an outfit that shows such cleavage!
The birthday scenes were stupid, as were the scenes between Abby and Michael.
No showing of the memorial was the worst of all. Well, that and Jason deciding not to go. Or maybe Jason threatening Luke, knowing what he has done in the past. Or maybe Michael giving the play by play of the memorial. Or maybe having Liz look at a paternity test on the day of her other son's memorial, or maybe showing Jason with Josslyn, (showing us again that Carly and her family are always Jason's first priority).

Gary said...

Well, I finally did it...unleased a Twitter tirade on Michele Val Jean...and I couldn't be more proud. To not even show Jake's memorial is -- pardon the pun -- the nail in the coffin. It was, in a perverse way, hilarious. Of COURSE that's what they'd do to avoid having the VETS come in for ONE goddamn day! Ugh, this show is so, so, so, SO awful now, it's not even funny. Heads should be rolling at ABC.

After reading all your comments I find it amusing that TPTB think GH is the best show of their daytime 3. They want to cancel or combine OLTL and AMC but leave GH intact because it is so good. TPTB need get their heads out of the sand and wake up. As long as Guza is writing this slop, it will never change. We should bombard ABC with letters and demand his ouster.

Adora said...

lmao, Frank~ I totally agree with you. More and more lately I've noticed that reading fan outrage is becoming the best part of the show. It's so wrong an sad, but it really is more amusing than the show at times. Especially since the comments are generally undeniably correct~ *^^;*

Suzy said...

The show was horrible. Cannot believe that they didn't show Jake's funeral. I bet they didn't show it so they didn't have to bring on some of the old vets. Jax barely having any air time with Carly and Joss is extremely disappointing. Ugh - and Jason reading Joss a book and talking about Africa (ugh!). It should be Jax sitting with her!!!

I really think now that Jake is alive. I bet he walked out the front door b/c Franco or someone was there and called him outside (hence the unmarked vehicle that drove during that time). Franco already kidnapped Aidan, so maybe he found out Jake is Jason's and took him.

General Hospital is really disappointing lately.

GARY You did!!? Do I follow you on twitter?? I MUST SEE THAT!

It used to be they would have funerals just for the eomtions since that's what soaps are made of. When they thought TB's Carly was dead, for example.

Anonymous said...

Watch yesterday's epi for Jason's scenes and when Jax & Carly go to visit Liz AFTER the memorial fast forward through the rest of the crap. I am so sick of Michael and Abby I could scream! And the fact that we where screwed out of a memorial for Jake, when this was a chance to have real drama, not just violence for the sake of having violence just breaks my heart. Written well the story line of Jake's death and the fallout COULD HAVE made GH a contender for best soap for the season.
