ALL: So Tired of 1 or 2 Characters dominating?


Recommended Posts

Why do Writers have these silly obsession over 1 or 2 characters. Look over at General Hospital, the Show is almost nothing then just Jason and the whole stupid Mob wars. I stopped watching GH because so tired of Jason and Sonny Show and when they are caught or something, they are only rewarded with a slap on the wrist. Take Jason on trail for an instant, he is a cold blooded killer and i know he was the one to kill Alcazar(i dont know if he is dead because i haven't watched GH like since september 1st and Jason yet again was not guilty again. Hey i do love Jason Morgan but come on, it is pretty sad that Steve Burton takes up almost the entire show, hey steve burton is a great actor but come on give him a break.

The problem for GH is that they need more balance and not just focus around certain characters for months for example Jason/Elizabeth/Sam/Lucky/Sonny/Carly/Jerry Jacks. I quit watching GH because the show is nothing but the Mob and so tired of it. TELL ME WHEN THEIR IS MORE BALANCE AND THAT THE MOB SHOW IS DONE, then i will come back to watch.

another thing that all the storys on GH is a turn off. God i hate the whole Jason/Elizabeth fighting their feelings thing. Whats this is like the 400 times we been through this lol.

Days Of Our Lives

Now over at Days Of Our Lives, the show is nothing but Sami and EJ. But hey lately days has gotten better balance and from the spoilers for the next month or 2, we will cont the balance and we get more Deidre Hall. Hey i love Allison Sweeney and James Scott, they are amazing actor/actress but Sheffer has some sick obsession with them that is not heathly lol. Days can be the best soap on television if we get better balance. The last 3 episodes amazing balance, writing, directing, acting and i hope days keeps it up. Sheffer needs to give Ali and James a day off for once, they are always on. I don't mind the young adults on, their story is alot better now then Touch The Sky, its alot more realistic but keep them to 2-3 days per week.

I understand that the writers have their favorites but with Hogan Sheffer, he plays too much favorites in Sami and EJ. Heck i got my favorites too in Chelsea and Stephanie and if i was writer, i would focus on them alot but i won't over do it what sheffer is doing. Also i thought about this, have Sami on alot isn't that bad, well if u compare Sami's airtime to Jason's airtime on GH, it is like half of airtime. Ali was in 134 episodes this year so far and Steve Burton was in 174 episodes, the show is like nothing then just Jason.

I think Days is alot better and the best soap on television right now. Too bad nbc or the fans cant see that, Days right now do have balance between the vets and the younger set. Their acting, directing and writing has been awesome.

Yea Shelley and Darin was on alot in september but i think Sheffer is setting up their relationship story and i am happy about that. I love Stephanie and Max.

POINT IS THAT A SHOW CAN'T DO WELL WITH JUST 1 CHARACTER DOMINATING LIKE SAMI BRADY ON DAYS AND JASON MORGAN ON GH.

WRITERS, HOW HARD IS IT TO GIVE US BALANCE.

I'd say GH is more Lulu and Carly than Jason but yeah, he's a hugely featured character too. <_<

yea well lately its alot of Carly too, i caught yesterdays episode and i watched that Lulu and her father luke was fighting because luke doesnt like Logan. HAHAHAHA, can i say i know where GH took that from, from days with steve and stephanie.

I have this thing on my computer where I get webclips from this message board and it doesn't tell me who posts but I can also tell when someone has created another thread on another topic that we discuss every month in the episode counts.

Well I agree with you stephanie....I find alot of the soaps recycle the same storylines with the same people. For a while I thought they could change the name of ATWT to Gwen and Will's neverending drama! But finally they are giving us a little break from that storyline. I'm just curious about something....almost afraid to mention it....but I'm almost afraid to start threads sometimes because it seems some people really rag on people for their threads or opinions. I thought this was a message board where we all kind of aired our thoughts and love or hate of our fave soaps and couples? Sometimes its scary to even post!!

Well on All my Children is happening with Zach and Kendall and I"m so tired so them. It's so patheic that a show with some of the most talented people on it make us watch these two characters everyday. I want to see more Palmer,Adam, Tad, Marion, Erica, Colby, Sean,Julia, Josh and Opal Not the Zach and Kendall Hour.

You and me both....thats why I stick to the GH boards primarily...plus the primetime stuff like GG. Much more friendlier crowd.

Anyways balance is good but I admit that I do have favorites and that their are some characters that I could care less about on certain soaps yet seem to be obsessions for other people.

I think that many times, people get annoyed with people who have been banned, yet continue to come back as if nothing ever happened. With so many members on the board, it's hard for the admins and mod to keep track, so some people slip through the cracks. The members catch right on though, and in their annoyance, I think at times they take it out on those people.

For the most part, we're not a bad bunch. We like to discuss a lot of different things, but there are people who can't respect others opinions and those who post only to annoy others. If you ever have a problem, just PM me and I'll try to handle it for ya :D

If you dislike GH, or any other show for that matter, do something about it.

Yeah! Send them a "rockin'" script, because postal workers will forever be employed. And make sure that you place that "rockin'" script of yours in the same class as Michele Val -- BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

I'm sorry. I couldn't hold a straight face any longer.

    • I watched that season last year and this is what made it dawn on me that he was the actor.   The four above all still look  Please register in order to view this content.    
    • It is shocking me to no end that the Monet's mother who read her daughter for filth every other episode is the same self-confessed Daddy's girl captain of the 74 black woman lead on EAST NEW YORK which I am currently binging.   The versatility.   
    • Yeah, I was so surprised that he was Hilary Duff's love interest (and that he had aged pretty well) on YOUNGER last week. I kept looking at his eyes going, they look so familiar. And then...Oooo?
    • Considering the cast used to get called back to film filler scenes it wouldn't surprise me if that would've been done to beef it up - plus I could imagine that they did a lot of creative re-cutting of episodes in the past, so scenes from those episodes that are 40+ minutes might've been used in earlier episodes.
