There isn’t any reason to have a vampire storyline on General Hospital! It might be thought to bring the vampire lovers on board but I really doubt that would happen and they would leave when the vampires leave.
Having grew up with General Hospital I was happy to see the show getting back to basics and some of the older stars being brought back. Lucy Coe is fun to watch and can get into lot of trouble just being Lucy. but I don’t see why she is to be involved with vampires. Yes, I know it’s because of the Port Charles show that was on for awhile. I didn’t watch it. And I do not want to watch it now.
If General Hospital is trying to reinvent itself it is sure to fail. The ones whom watch General Hospital are true diehard fans but if the show gets any more ridiculous, it will lose a lot of viewers. In the past I could hardly bear the thought of no more General Hospital. Now, not so much. Friends have said they are going to start watching it again having not watched for years. I’m embarrassed to encourage them. I love the soap but I feel it is committing suicide by the unbelievable story lines.
I don’t want to watch science fiction. I don’t want to watch fantasy fiction. I just want a good believable love story with all the anguish and pitfalls. Shocking plots might keep viewers tuning in but lately I’ve been feeling like tuning out.
This doesn’t mean all the old stars should come back. Unless there is a really good reason for it. And for now, it looks to be the nurses ball. I’ve real General Hospital is on the mend again but I don’t think it’s because of vampires.
I hesitate to disparage the soap as I truly do love it but sometimes it’s like a naughty youngster who needs shaking up. It seems the stories for the most part are either fantasy or a comedy. It is a waste of talent, old and new.
Maybe the time of the grand old soap is over. Maybe the days of the lovelorn and desperate are not interesting anymore. But people of all ages believe in love. We like it to mirror our own life only be better! I am one of many who has never seen a vampire. Good old flesh and blood is just fine!
