New to the forums:
My biggest problem w/ GH is that the writing is so lazy the actors are uninspired. You can see it on their faces. All the acting styles have become similar. You can swap Maurice and Steve playing Sonny and Jason, and still get the same impact.
What really saddens me is that Guza and team don't hear the fans. With Karpov on the scene...open wide...another mob story is being shoved down our throat. An old writers addage is to write what you know. Bob Guza does not know the mob. His mob stories have been a mess from the getgo. It is now just recycling tired mess after mess.
What REALLY bothers me is the useless killing of core/legacy characters. Yes, people die. Yes people are murdered. That's life. But, the killing of Alan & Emily to further advance mob-related story was just a waste.
But, there are way to rectify this: the writers just have to look in the past at the characters, and the answer is there!
If it wasn't for Laura Wright, I wouln't even TIVO GH. I can watch a whole week in about 15 minutes.
