Questions/Speculation Swirl Around Guza's Leaving GH
You all know just where I stand with the writing under Guza. I think the show has been gutted since 2002-- and all under his watch.
First and foremost, his contract was up. That means they didn't want to pay to pick him up again. That fuels speculation that GH's days are numbered. Save money at the end. AMC had it happen as well.
May sweeps have been dismil. I can't even believe they let this languish. Why? Wouldn't Guza want to go out on a high note?? It's almost as if he knew before the end it was finished and just got lazy. I've have been saying that for MONTHS now. Lazy, repetitive writing, coupled with shoddy editing and terrible continuity. Wolf has a HUGE job ahead. Even if GH is going to be cancelled, tying up loose ends will be a chore.
Is Vanessa Marcil Staying?? Will Franco come back? What about all the newbies hired? What about the stagnant growth of almost every character?? We've lost a lot on this show. Not to mention Genie Francis going to Y&R.
After the celebration of Guza's outster is over, we do have to start wondering where this is going. Tune in, write letters and hope this show can turn around and deliver ratings.
My wishes (and I know you all have your own list!!)
1. more than 2-3 people in a scene
2. Core characters get equal airtime
3. MOVEMENT on canvas
4. INTEGRATION of characters
5. Less Mob More Hospital
6. Honoring History
7. Interesting stories I want to watch
That's about it...you?? What do you want?? Will you tune back in? BTW, I would think that the real changes will be noticed in maybe a month?? I'm sure they've known this for a bit. What's already in the works?? Hmmm, at least we have something to think about now!!
