OK, Michele. This could be war. Sonny-and-Jason, GH-mob-style war, if you get my drift. You have fired the first shot, so I have no choice but to retaliate.
Well, not really, but you have inspired me to share my list of the 10 things I love about General Hospital.
1. Jason and Elizabeth. Hands-down, my favorite story. Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst are amazing together. I have waited many long, painful, Courtney- and Sam-filled years to see the hitman with the heart of gold and the good-girl nurse with the fiery streak finally get it right and realize they belong together.
2. Trevor. I love that he is not only a professional threat to Sonny but he’s also a personal threat. He gets to Port Charles’ dimpled mob boss in a way that no one else ever has. Trevor makes Sonny feel like a little boy again and it scares him … and it’s fascinating to watch.
3. Sam and Maxie. I like having female characters I love to hate. Carly can’t carry that torch all on her own. Sam and Maxie are more interesting than they have been in years, and I get a kick out of the fact that they are best buds. There are enough “good girls” on the GH canvas, so I welcome some characters who lean a little more toward the “bad.” It makes the show more balanced and watchable.
4. Max and Milo and Diane and Epiphany. Love, love, love these side characters and the humor they add to the show.
5. Speaking of humor, I’m actually enjoying Alan’s ghost. Although I would prefer to have him as a living character, it’s such a trip watching him haunt Tracy. And the Quartermaine insult fests are always welcome.
6. Georgie and Spinelli. Let’s all say it together: Awwwwww. How much sweeter can a potential couple be?
7. Lulu and Logan. I know, I know. He’s a scheming, immature, sometimes-jerk who can’t keep
his pants zipped, but I really like him with Lulu. Plus, if he turns out to be Scotty’s son? It’s just too good a story to pass up.
8. Patrick and Robin. Thank you, GH, for shaking this couple up. Yes, I love them together. Yes, Kimberly McCullough and Jason Thompson have wonderful chemistry. But if all they continued to do was argue about furniture or their latest patient consultation … well, as my 5-year-old son would say, “BOR-ing.” Couples need these lows so we can clamor for and appreciate the highs. Scrubs was due for some real drama.
9. Jason and Robin. I enjoyed their recent conversation at the coffee house because I like when GH actually remembers that two characters have a history together. I was a big J&R fan, and although I don’t think a romance would work between them now, I like to see that they are still connected.
10. Emily and Sonny. The fact that these two are no longer together is reason enough to rejoice.
