    LMAO, 50 years of love in the afternoon!! Well thank god for those 50 years, because Gh sure doesn’t have anymore love in the afternoon. All they have now is forced contrived pairings, Carly and Todd probably shared maybe 5 major scenes and they are in love!!! Sam and John have a forced “connnection” brought on by vampires and people call this love? After the last 9 yrs with jason and the love story that was built slowly and one of the best written love stories, IMO, and then bam, shes all into Johns business which makes no sense to the characters history, but hey as long as Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco share scenes who cares!! Anna and Luke?? Luke loves Anna in what 2 days. These new writers know nothing about love in the afternoon. They said it themselves, not couple stays happy.. God forbid. Patrick and Sabrina?? thats like watching Patrick a grown man go after a school aged kid. And Liz and Aj, ok maybe, but can they build the story first! Its a joke! Sonny and Kate or Connnie or whatever personality they want to throw in there. its like watching a freakin ping pong game with those 2… Show sucks anymore and ABC allowed these people to take over and ruin it. I know there are some out there that think its great and wonderful and the best its been since the 80’s but honestly, there are a lot that dont think so and If I had to guess based on the ratings, its the later.

      Jasam were critically panned, especially with Franco, took up tone of air time, and couldn’t get past 2.0 on there wedding the worst written fungus is gone, praise god, and rating have been great for the show. Bring on McBam so along as they keep cutting the time hogs air time.

  • Linda

    Not that good. Way too many photos and stories of Sonny and Luke & Laura. Hardly any photos and stories of Leslie Charleson (Monica) and Stuart Damon (Alan) who were on the show FOREVER. No highlights of their Emmy nominated storylines re breast cancer and drug addiction. Lousy issue.
