GH is doing fine.  I like Nurses Ball week.  Days deserves these ratings.  There's been no leadership from the producers at all after Griffith joined.  The entire executive production staff should be fired.  But it's too late. The show will not be around after 9/2017.  So sad.   YR: maybe Prattastrophe is finally settling in.  Not one story is interesting right now.  All are predictable or dull as paint drying.  Show needs a major overhaul.   Every month the story pivots around another car/cycle accident. Now we have Billy's bike accident; last month was Sage. When was Neil's?  There were others in between.  Pratt/Thomson are recycling their own plots within the same year.  Worse than Latham/Bell/Jelly.

Jean and Shelly have earned a renewel. Their GH is so strong and solid. Days omg what happened? YR is slipping starting to believe Jill's time might be up now. She has had a four year run which is good. It's time for a new exec producer.

The character mix is a bit better. It's less all over the place, but it's still crap :( but it has turned a bit, I agree.

Thank you. And yes, they are on the same level. Jelly have not earned a renewal. It's more watchable trash, but still trash none-the-less. I've given up addressing the obvious because said person just wants a reaction and knows they'll get one every time.

    • I agree. And as I said above, most of the interim stuff worked. Especially the Ryan saga with Felicia and Mac.
    • Didn't he also have a terrible relationship with Potter? Really terrible? I know Potter was long gone by then but it probably wasn't a happy memory for him.
    • I think Riche sets a tone almost immediately for the type of show she wanted "General Hospital" to be. Even if the stories weren't always the strongest, the stories were rooted in human emotion. No matter who was writing in those early years, the characters seem to connected and invested in the world around them. There are stakes. I think even in some of the weaker stories, there is something to find of value. Actions had impact and often ripples across the canvas. Romance was also back. Characters relationships were central to the drama. There is a feeling of community in Port Charles. All of this was in place by the time that Labine and team arrive and run with it.   Part of me thinks that it was for the best that Robert and Anna left when they did. It forced Riche to shift the show away from the action and adventure stories that had been the show's staple and required the humanity to be returned. Bringing the hospital back to the forefront was very smart. Characters who were ignored were given material of substance. I do think Riche leaned into her TV movie background and, at times, the stories may not have seemed like soap opera stories. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.  Personally, any episode from 1992-1993 is stronger than the material I've seen in 1990-1991.  @DeliaIrisFan I looked at the summaries again. Bill inherited land from Fred Eckert which he used to get into business with Harlan Barrett. My apologies. 
    • As rough as the Riche transition was, I personally enjoyed Ryan/Felicia/Mac, the younger set, and Scotty/Lucy/Dom more than anything during Monty’s second run.  And I was a fan of Anna/Robert being paired and Faison. But Riche got in a groove and it just got better with Labine.
