When it comes to General Hospital, every fan has their own opinion – and Soap Hub is no different. For five days, we sat and watched the good, the bad, and everything in between, and now we offer you a handy review, and a cheeky critique, of the GH week that was.
General Hospital: A Critic’s Week In Review
It would really behoove General Hospital to stop including Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) in any and all ‘Sante’ scenes — his presence only serves to remind viewers that Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) is not only sleeping with a man with whom she shares a half-brother, but with a man she very nearly gave a half-brother to, lest anyone forget that she was pregnant with Sonny’s spawn.
It would also help if the soap raised Victor Cassadine’s (Charles Shaughnessy) villain profile a smidge because so far, he’s been presented as nothing short of ineffectual. Also, wasn’t Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) once a scheming sexpot who wouldn’t have had a bit of trouble besting and betraying Victor? I seem to recall her engineering a not-guilty verdict for a serial killer that she was sweet on and manipulating her way into Tony Jones’s bed and the Quartermaine family. Who is this flighty, ineffectual woman they’re pretending is Lucy?
Do you know what else would help improve General Hospital? If Dan and Christ/Chris and Dan would stop starting and then dropping storylines that they may or may not pick up somewhere further down the line.
The revisiting of the plot point that was Stella Henry’s (Vernee Watson) secret relation in Port Charles (which we all know to be Trina Robinson) is but one of the many examples I could offer.
Further GH Musings
* I find it very hard to believe that neither Cameron Webber (William Lipton) nor Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) was present for Spencer Cassadine’s (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) transfer to Pentonville.
* Nail-Head. Nina to Willow: Get off your damn high horse. I am sorry that Nelle did these horrible things to you, I am. But it has made you so self-righteous that you can’t acknowledge anyone else’s pain but your own.”
