Another site says Dr. O and Madeline are sisters. Nathan is actually Dr. O's son, she gave him to Madeline to raise.
Same site says Britt gets drunk and goes home with Nathan. If the rumour above is true that makes her and Nathan brother and sister.
Incest. Is GH really going there?!

Carrie said...

Can't blame you. GH has been on the downward trend. :/

I agree with Carrie. I haven't watched in 2 months. I keep up to date here, but that's it.

Therese said...

I appreciate your comments. I have only been watching for two years but do enjoy the show. I agree that there are too many characters to really keep track of everyone. I am hoping for a good week!

Karen,

Remember last year when you tried this trick about retiring and I spearheaded (maybe not me...) a campaign to get you to stick with your site and GH? Well, not this time.

This show is bad. It has deteriorated so bad that I cannot blame you for taking a break from this drek. Even though it is probably STILL snowing in Buffalo (does it ever stop?) I hope you find the free time to go for a walk in the park with your husband. See the flowers blooming. Study a foreign language. Relax.

I watch out of habit now. Normally in the background. I rarely post anymore because there is nothing really worth posting about. And when there is, it's just complaining about the same ol' same ol' anyway.

Do what you have to. This time, I dont blame you one bit!

:)

The whole AJ was the last straw. I am so sick of the disregard for fans, previous writers, history and plan ole loyalty and good story telling.

Karen,
There is one bit of what you call soapy goodness. It comes near the beginning when Sam demands that Nathan arrest Madeleine. Watch that far (only a few minutes). You'll have the line of the week.

AntJoan said...

Karen, OH NOOOOO, DON'T LEAVE US!! Everyone is being so gracious about this, but I AM BEING SELFISH!! WE NEED YOU!!

Again, no warning, just a giant, unhappy surprise!! Well, I will be waiting patiently for your return, which I hope will be sooner rather than later.

Like many here, I have watched for decades and feel like GH is a part of my life--the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope that some of us will continue to post, though I'm not sure how to do it for any particular day if you don't post.

Anyone else plan to stick around?

Kelly's: Fake Luke wins the line of the day!

Fake Luke: Art is it! Damn you can suck the joy out of a doughnut.

ROFL! And hey how did he know the promise Luke gave Tracy? About giving her the whole thing!

Hotel room: Wow!!!! So Madaline tried to kill Nina's unborn baby?!!?!?! Who's the father? McSilas?!!?!!

Police station: Geez Dante, Lulu, and Britch are talking way too much! Blah blah blah! And no Lulu! You aren't going anywhere! You walked in on Britch talking to her mother! So you stay at the police station!

Liz's home: Too much talking there too!! Blah blah blah. Oh finally Britch shows up!

The hospital: Wow! So McSilas and Ava thought the other one tried to murder Nina. Oh oh is this the end of Ava and Morgan? :(

Ava's art gallery: Ric and Julian YUM! :) Oh there is Alexis. :) Hey Julian does have a point about Alexis and Shawn. :) OH JULEXIS SEX!!!! WOOT WOOT! :)

Can't say I blame you. Outside of a few quite brilliant and enjoyable scenes, this show continues stagger about drunkenly like Luke on a bender. I still contend that there has been very little gameplan in place after the 50th anniversary and that the loss of the OLTL threesome shocked Cartini into a catatonic state like Heather getting shock treatment. This is killing me because there are pieces there to really make this show go like gangbusters again (like it was before the 50th), but right now it is really floundering. Lets hope they get their crap together soon or I think they are going to start losing the audience and goodwill they had brought back.

I think many of us are "on a break"...I will continue to read Twitter recaps, check in here and occasionally tune in if I feel it's an especially good show. But honestly, it's hard to care about a show that doesn't seem to care about longtime fans, show history, or quality storytelling. They take us for granted...as if we're sheep blindly following where ever they lead. Here's hoping that Cartini gets visited by the Ghosts of GH past, present, and future for some guidance! Until then...take it easy Karen! I hope you keep posting on Twitter! :)

I'm going to hang with it until I see where the hell this Luke story is leading. Any rewrites of history or masks and I'll be really done.

AntJoan said...

I still think that Ava may be behind everything w/Nina. She goes to see Silas, tips off Madeleine about the hotel room, and then looks all innocent. I thought Madeleine looked genuinely surprised, and it looked like she wasn't trying to kill Nakamura, but maybe thought she was doing something else, something maybe Ava told her to do . . .

But then, this all seems to be about Nina's unborn child, another curve thrown into this story, so is it Nathan/James? And Nina took the drugs to abort? Still makes no sense. . . .

Mr. Shmekel said...

I gave up months ago. I think that the writers and the producers are on a mission to sink the show. There is no other explanation. GH is unwatchable. I kept up by checking WUBS but I just cannot stand the show anymore. There are no characters that I care about. The last straw was the botched Robin return. Why bother if she wasn't going to stay? And the crossover of the OLTL actors as new characters was another fiasco. And why kill up the Qs, one by one? Why should I have a sense of loyalty with GH when GH is unrecognizable?

AbsoluteLunatic said...

What? But the ratings are doing well so it must mean the show is great right? How can people take a break when we're finally getting into the Nina story?

kdmask said...

GUYS I'm not retiring, I'm keeping the spoilers going, I'm just not watching this week--I may catch up for Sunday, not sure. I was turning so nasty/negative I think I just needed to break away for a bit!

Sandi said...

I'm with you! Let's go get a cup of coffee!

Pat..... Sun..... said...

I don't find the show to be bad at all.... certain things are annoying, and bothering to bring Robin and AJ back for no reason was a waste... but over all, I still love the show..

Now I am thinking that the baby Nina was carrying did not die and it will show up in the future, maybe very soon... it would be about 20. They've mentioned at least a thousand times that Nina went into the coma 20 years ago....Must be a reason for them to keep repeating the length of time.

Glad you are just taking a break, Karen. Even though I disagree about the turn GH is taking, I love your blogging... You always put such interesting ideas out there. Especially Sunday Surgery. Love that and look forward to it every week.

I had to ffwd. through Lulu/Dante/Britt scenes. Lulu is the stupidest, most annoying character now (and actress) and Dante is a close second. I was really amazed that he thought of getting backup at Liz's house. Liz and Nik look much better together than he did with Britt. Loved Julexis! Donna Mills needs to stop doing her own makeup - looked ok back then but not now. Other than these picky, shallow comments, I though it was okay.
