Yes, can someone give me a date for Julian getting run over & quickly explain the Charlotte/Lulu thing?? I'm confused... 

 

I think Julian was run over around Thanksgiving by a drunk-ass Alexis. It was actually pretty comical. Homegirl was falling down drunk. She's even resorted to dumping booze in her coffee. It's one of the few things I actually, yes, think they're doing OK with. Showing Alexis clearly has a problem with booze.

 

I'm still trying to figure out Charlotte/Lulu. I know Lulu had an embryo that I think the Cassadines had but it was like 3 years ago so Charlotte has been aged up. I guess Claudette was implanted with it and then came on and lied that Charlotte was her daughter with Nathan and then Griffin but it was neither. It's all one big [!@#$%^&*] mess.

I think the hit and run was the 11/23 episode

Thanks! I agree about Alexis. Not to feed the troll but her drinking works

 

That's what I thought re Lulu but wasn't sure because obviously the age of the child wouldn't add up. Sounds typical horrific convoluted GH of this era.

Whatever Jonny. I'm done addressing you. Stop quoting me or addressing me as well. I HAVE tried to include you, begging you to do more than say the same thing over and over again, and will gladly go and find those posts but you're refusal to do anything but rant about the same thing has led me to treat you the way that I do. And yes, I could have been nicer at times, but let's not pretend you aren't aware of what you do. And if you actually read my posts, you would know I've said you haven't done anything wrong. I mean, come on now. Don't play the victim.

 

I'm bored now. Moving on .... I can't believe I keep trying.

 

KMan, I hear you. I've asked Jonny over and over to expand on those repeated lines (such as "it's smart tv") but he ignores every request and won't do it. He just repeats the line and says GH brings him to tears. 

 

Anyone who criticizes GH -- the rest of us -- is told we just don't understand the great writing. It's maddening, and while I do understand posters putting Jonny on ignore, I also understand those who fire back.

 

And now Jonny is posting on the YR thread that he's bored with the show. When I think of the state of GH, I can't believe what I'm reading.

He is a troll. He maneuvers himself for maximum agitation. That's all.

 

He seems to have become the heartbeat of this board - everyone loves replying to him. I guess given that the only other posting going on is to talk about how awful all the soaps are (which they are, of course, I can't argue with that), it's a way for people to have fun.

Exactly. I know I'm not alone in this. It's tired. I've tried. It's time for all of us to move on and completely ignore it. He knows what he's doing.

Vee you have never been more then a horrible nasty person not just to me but others on this board. u are a complete bully and i have seen u bully other people. if u have me on ignore why even bother to comment on me or others. someone cant seem to stay away lol. oh Kman u sound like a martyr victim. your continued bashing of GH i find to be trolling the boards. i have asked u a million times not to disprect Jean with you calling her Pissy which is highly offensive. when i like everyone was raving about the Morgan episodes which every critic was raving about it people chose to bash me or the episodes. i love GH and Jean/Shelly and that is my right.

Not to mention it sort of continues Ron's "legacy" (cos this is EXACTLY the story he'd tell...). Obviously Valentini plays a huge part in that kind of "legacy."

Looks like someone could be returning ...

I hope it's true!  The era that the possible returning character came from was considered by critics not to be General Hospital's best, but, I think time has vindicated the headwriter during that period, because so much story from that era is now on GH's canvas over 20 years later.  I was in the minority of viewers who enjoyed the writing during that time.  I probably would have been that writer's cheerleader the same way a certain member here posts on the boards about the current writers for GH.

    • Hope you can add some more. My next contribution is Dear John on NBC. In the 1998/89 season it took Night Court's 9.30 pm Thurs slot following Cheers. Cheers was # 4 and Dear John a respectable #11. In it's 2nd season it kept the 9.30 pm slot till mid season when it was replaced by Grand. I believe NBC was under pressure from Carsey/Werner productions to place their new show in that plum slot (they supplied Cosby and A Different World) Dear John got moved to Wed 9.30 following Night Court. It finished #17 for the season but that average was bumped up from the Thurs showings. In 90/91 it retained the 9.30pm Wed slot but now followed a new show Fanelli Boys. Wed 9-10 Wk 1 1990/91 season ABC Doogie Howser #8 CBS Jake and the Fatman # 25 NBC fanelli Boys #42/Dear John # 52  Fanelli flopped and NBC moved Dear John to 9pm. By Jan 1990 Night Court was back to 9pm and Dear John was back to 9.30 before being shunted to 10.30 Saturday. It's overall ranking was #50 For it's final season it was given the 9pm Fri timeslot but was moved to 9.30 . It ranked #77. So it only worked with a strong lead in - timeslot hit.

Wheels NBC (R) 10.0/18   NBC showing the most mini series for the least return.  The Innocent and The Damned was a new title for Aspen. Maybe they thought people would be fooled into watching a rerun. The Wheels rerun was truncated due to dreadful ratings. Originally all 5 episodes were going to be shown, but after dire ratings for ep 1 and 2, they showed a summary of eps 3&4 before playing the final episode.
    • I agree. With that in mind, I think we've pinpointed a good amount of 1980s and 1990s time slot hits.
    • Bit hard to play that when Paul has been gone for years, but yes beforehand their connection was downplayed. With Paul isolated because of LLB's absence they could have easily played up a lonely Paul leaning on Lauren. Write in some issues that would cause friction b/w Lauren and Micheal and bingo! Paul and Lauren could be tempted. Yes that relationship should have remained stronger over the years.
    • To my way of thinking a show can only be classified as a timeslot hit if it is moved out of a timeslot it is rating well in, and doesn't perform as expected/hoped for in the new timeslot. That discounts a lot of shows that get moved at the end of their lifespan. I would put Hotel in that category along with other examples like Falcon Crest and Trapper John, which after several successful seasons were falling in the ratings and basically moved elsewhere to finish their runs. Had Hotel been moved in Season 3 and bombed then its status as a timeslot hit would be proven. Looking forward to your response!
