Focusing On The Things That Keep Us Watching

“Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes You Don’t”…

Happy Hump Day, GHers!

I think you all know that no one wants General Hospital to survive more than I do – maybe as much as I do, but no one wants it to survive more. GH is like a a security blanket – a familiar thing that brings me back to the best of my yesteryears, something that I love to cuddle up with after a rough day, or even a good day. That being said – I am worried.

I am worried because as much as I want it to survive, IT’S killing me!

I guess it all boils down to the fact that…“Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes You Don’t”…

You all know that I got right behind the Konnie DID storyline because occasionally (rarely) they are done well, and of course, I wanted this time to be one of them. Also, I really just wanted to get behind GH in a big way, and I wanted to stay behind them.

And hey – every (very) small town can use a nut – at least for umbrella storyline.

But, honestly…Sometimes I just don’t feel like a nut.

That’s a problem. Why? It seems to me that (not so) slowly, but surely, there are nuts everywhere you look.

In fact, it seems to me that the inmates are literally running the asylum!

They are driving story – they are dominating story – they are swallowing story WHOLE! I struggle to think of a storyline that doesn’t involve one kind of nut or another!

I remember when I thought Anthony Z was as much crazy as I could stand at once. Boy, what I would give back to go back to those days.

Listen, I might be willing to take all of the crazies (in moderation), if we could just have some Love. Some Romance. Some Hot, Steamy, Soapy Drama! It is no wonder at all that GH comes in dead last in the ratings so often – it is the show with the least amount of the things I just mentioned! Don’t believe me? Check the recaps of the other soaps! There is at least one of the three ingredients missing on GH on those shows every single day!

It is not coincidence, GHers! 

I will never understand how those in charge can really believe – even for a second – that they are truly reeling in their target audience (women just like you and me) without any of the three things we look to for that brief escape from our real worlds. Unlike half the population in Port Charles, I am not delusional! I know that the chances of Jason and I rolling around naked are zilch – but damn it if Sam can’t enjoy it for me! (Hence the twitter name @IfNotMeThenSam)

It is also no wonder that telenovelas like the ones my grandmother watches pull in between a 4.8 and a 9.2 rating! Yes, you read that right – 9.2! But to be fair – on those soaps, everyone walks around showing (and shaking) what their mamas gave them, and there is love, and romance, and hot, steamy, soapy drama on DAILY!

GH has some of the most beautiful, fit people on TV! WHY IS EVERYONE WEARING SO MUCH CLOTHING! 

It’s enough to make me nutty!

When will these MEN finally understand that what THEY consider must-see TV just does not look anything like what WE consider to be must-see TV?

I can only hope that if every single viewer picks up their phone, sticks on a stamp, and types up an email, letting them know the three things we must have, that someone – somewhere will listen!

It can’t hurt, as we don’t yet know what GH’s future is. PLEASE use your voice to try and make a dent in the blockheads running our show into the ground.

And while you’re at it – let them know that as far as what’s onscreen now – “Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes You Just Don’t, Dammit!”

Demand that they bring back The Love In The Afternoon, before it’s too late!

Yes, I said DEMAND! 

What have we got to lose this far in?

Love you all,
Angelique

  2. OH BOY! When it affects YOU like it has, things are not so good. I have been so depressed lately reading stuff, to the point of avoiding it. And last night, with some new “scan” hitting the spoilers, I am downright ill………enough is enough! (wish I spoke Spanish. I would be watching the telanovas with your Grandmother—hmmm…guess I could just LOOK!- LOL!) Anyhow, Angelique, thank you for keeping us sane, and please continue your mission to help our soap and our couple to survive.We need you, and each other, more than ever! Much love..

    I’m totally feeling like a “Nut” these days watching GH and reading the Spoilers.. *Sighs* I want to stay positive, but its been really hard to do.
    I committed to ride this out with JaSam/GH and my fellow JaSammers a long time ago.
    And I plan to keep that commitment…
    I just hope its not going to be too painful of a ride. I hope I don’t end up in the Nut Farm when its all said and done….
    JaSam 4ever Fan!!

    Hi Jasammers,
    I was going to wait until tomorrow but i decided not to! Maybe the reason TPTB are going this way is that the only way to save GH is throw Sam and Jason to the wolves again! At least thats the way they may be thinking! I just do not know anymore! We have waited for this moment for so long and to have it turn into this its just sad! I thought we would get a s/l of Love between these two as they go through “our” pregnancy together!There are so many other ways that this should have played out! The end game may be what we are yearning for but at this moment it is so Painful its hard to watch! Didn’t we go through this once before? Where we barely recgonized our favorite couple! Their Love Story deserves so much beetter than this! They are doing things that is so not them especially Sam but Jason too! At least Jason acted like a an expecting Father today but…….Sam was on another mission of secrets! So not her! Liz just could not leave it at Sam was there at GH…….NO! They can flip Liz upside down and right side up its not changing how I feel about her not until she steps up to her own issues and stays out Jason and Sams relationship/marriage! But I guess TPTB are playing both sides of the fence,again! Thank You YT where I can visit better times!
