I hated the so-called 45th anniversary montage. That was how they paid tribute to a soap with such rich history, such unique characters. THAT? One would think nothing happened before 1994 or that viewers didn't love couples like Duke/Anna, Robert/Holly, Steve/Audrey, Scott/Lucy, Mac/Felicia, Frisco/Felicia, Tony/Bobbie & Rick/Lesley, Alan/Monica. We had one, ONE scene of the man who was the rock of General Hospital(no not Luke), Steve Hardy. What about Lucy, Dominique, Duke, Anna, Robert, Holly? What about Amy VIning, & Jessie Brewer? Sean & Tiffany's wedding? The Aztec adventure with Frisco & Felicia? What about Tony's propsal to Bobbie? or Ryan Chamberlain, Cesar Faison, Grant Putnam, Helena Cassadine? 45 YEARS and that was the best they could come up with? Special effects & Mobsters r us . . . and they wonder why ratings stink?
I know it's not just GH that does it. Good Lord, they got rid of Martha Byrne on ATWT just last week! I don't understand how soaps expect to survive when they continually show no respect to history. But heh, it's just my opinion.
