How ridiculous can General Hospital get??
Now Sonny is not only teaming up with arch enemy Anthony Zacchara, but Anthony is going to insist on him marrying Claudia to seal the deal?
A. I can’t stand the mob wars to begin with and
B. The mob keeps dominating storylines and mob characters just keep being added.
Let’s see….
There’s Sonny and Jason, all the Zaccharas and now Karpov, the Russian mobster.
Where does it end?
Sonny and Anthony

I just can’t believe that writers are pitting Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason (Steve Burton) against each other and aligning Sonny with his mortal enemy, Zacchara.
It’s just stupid.
That would never happen.
But, even more than that, it’s boring and not at all the reason why I watch soaps.
I hate the whole mob thing.
The only thing mob-related that has been entertaining is the entrance of Vincent Pastore as Maxiumus Giambetti, father of Max and Milo.
Pastore has provided some laugh-out-loud scenes through Maximus’ interactions with characters Diane (Carolyn Hennesy), Carly (Laura Wright) and Claudia (Sarah Brown).
Other than that bright spot, it’s thumbs down for the mob storylines.
Then there’s that whole counterfeit drug storyline….How long has that s/l been dragging on?
Now with Jerry Jax (Sebastian Roche) framing Sam (Kelly Monaco) for the counterfeit drugs, I guess it’s going to drag on even longer.
Really not looking forward to seeing where that’s going.
All I can say is thank goodness that Tracy and Luke are back!

    Once again i COMPLETELY AGREE! It is really horrible how they are sending this show down the tubes for some of us. i find myself FF thru all of it..! But unfortunately Violence is a seller , and they have recruited and brainwashed enough younger ppl into believing that this is what a Soap should be, they are watching and supporting it. i am sad that Night Shift had to come to an end, I would rather that than GH.. Enough is enough already..

    Hi Kare-
    I agree 100 % about the boring mob stories. But I did laugh out loud several times during the Maximus/Max/Diane/Jason scenes. Too bad Max and Diane won’t be at Super Soap.

    Everyone in Port Charles is connected or has some connection to the Mob. It really is crazy if you think about it. I wont complain too much though because Jason is my favorite character on the show, though I wish they could really find a way for him and Elizabeth to have a real relationship. I really saw a ray of hope on Friday. They have got to keep Geenie Francis. They are doing themselves a disservice if they dont find a way to keep her on. The whole Luke, Laura, Scottie and Tracy dynamic has endless possibilities.

    I so agree that the mob storylines are so contrived…to have Sonny align himself with the very people who shot Kate and Michael is disgusting. Pretty soon we will probably watch Sonny get close to Claudia. Ugh! I had hoped that part of the story would be Kate seeing Sonny go dark like Brenda, Carly, and Emily had and actually be the one to get him back….but so far, that part has not happened. Instead I am sure it will be the instant son with no emotional connection who will be Sonny’s savior. I just hate the present writing on Gh with plot devices that make no sense.
