A Critic’s Review Of General Hospital: More Amusing, Awkward & Hijinks, Please

The author’s opinions on GH are his and his alone. They’re suitably scathing, fairly humorous, and normally bang on target.

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: The Critic’s POV

Not all of General Hospital’s stories are created equally. While I’m not in the least bit interested in watching Nina (Cynthia Watros) being set up for yet another inevitable [and wholly predictable] fall, or recast Kristina carry a baby for recast Molly, or Gladys’s (Bonnie Burroughs) rapid descent into indefensible territory, or whatever it is that’s going on with the estranged Ashfords, I WILL take any development on the “Mac Is Cody’s Daddy” front and I’m cautiously looking forward to the hijinks that Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring) are sure to get up to in Pine Valley. [Here’s hoping that Walt Willey’s Jackson Montgomery won’t be the only former All My Children character to put in a cameo.]

It’s also fun to speculate who’s the most likely to catch a bullet come Monday. Since Anna (Finola Hughes) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) are the most obvious of targets, I think it’s safe to call them…well…safe. I’m casting my vote for Curtis (Donnell Turner).

I’d also like to put in a request for more amusing, awkward, and amusing awkward dinner dates with Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton), Finn (Michael Easton), Gregory (Gregory Harrison), Chase (Josh Swickard), and “Auntie Tracy” (Jane Elliot). Pretty please?!

Further GH Musings

* Best Line Of Dialogue: Brook Lynn: “Why God? Why? What have I done to deserve this? Actually, on second thought, God, don’t answer that.”

* The continued propping up of Carly (Laura Wright) by characters who would normally be doing anything but [looking at you Sam!] has got to stop. I get that Ms. Spencer is a favorite of Chris and Dan/Dan and Chris [perhaps even their greatest muse] but I’d appreciate them not being so blatant about it.
