Tristan Rogers' twitter: Robert's has no other elements in his family
Tracee at SZ:
Beware, there are some folks with some shady ass agendas seemingly targeting Scrubs fans at the moment. But they're really becoming incredibly obnoxious and ridiculous. My best advice would be to hunker down and just ignore all that outside chatter.

anything on my scrubbies?
I dont have to tell you that they have major angst coming their way. But that doesnt mean Patrick and Robin dont come through for each when it counts.
I'd keep an eye on Kimberly. Everyone assumes if anything JT would fly the coop first, but it may be Kimberly and JT is prepping for the hole she'd leave s/l wise.
~I'll Let You Know
Does Robin get raped by Brad?
No rape s/l in Robin's future.
~I'll Let You Know
Can you please give me some info on what's upcoming for Jason?
Jason, Jason, Jason. He's everywhere. He's helping Robin out--in a really big way--
~I'll Let You Know
Are they going back to JnR or at least testing them?
I can answer this one definitively. No. With that, I have to run.
~I'll Let You Know.

Robin tells Lainey all about Brad and confesses she's not as upset as she should be

RE: Response to PPD story
Letters for KMc are almost always positive. She is loved, and her fans don't seem to mind any of the tragedy filled stories that she is given, but letters to the writers have been ugly, fans don't want Robin destroyed. But KMc doesn't get ugly letters. Not sure why, personally I think it's because many of her letters are from fans who watched her as a little girl, and as most letters are from women, I think they feel very maternal towards her. But that is my own perception.
RE: if Jt and Kmc are happy with the way it's been written?
I don't know about JT, sorry but he's not too vocal about the show. I don't know if you guys are aware but he's really big into hockey and that is what his conversations have been focused on for the last month. I don't know if KMc is unhappy, but I do know she did a lot of research on her own, and had her own ideas about how her portrayal should go and SHE WAS SHOT DOWN.
RE: any word on whether JT and/or Kmc will leave come the fall?
No but many think KMc is staying an additional year, but nothing concrete is known about either att.

Coming up
Much to Patrick's dismay, Robin decides she needs time away from Patrick, Emma and their homelife.

OK. So are they going to say that she doesn't have PPD now? You said she doesn't want this life so it isn't PPD?
No, she has PPD but that's not all it is either. Part of her realization is that marriage and family aren't everything she thought it would be and it's not the life that she wants.
So? You think she plans to keep this from Patrick for good? No. She knows she has to tell him but she keeps putting it off.
Just pointing out that when you were making up spoilers you forgot that little tidbit.

Great. Wonderful, I'll leave you with this--why do you think the show has Patrick confiding in Liz about Robin cheating on him yet not confronting Robin about Brad? You think it's just a coincidence? Do you think they made Liz Patrick's confidant for shits and giggles? Also, FYI, Robin doesn't tell Patrick at all about Brad in April.
The misunderstandings continue between them as Robin also goes behind Patrick's back to help Sonny with Michael and Patrick thinks the secret is something else, as in Robin continues to see Brad behind his back. End of April, as in beginning of sweeps, kicks off with Robin with Michael when he wakes up as Patrick is getting his revenge for the months of secrets and lies.

The reason the spoilers have the wording that Patrick mistakenly thinks he sees something is for a reason.
Robin is almost forced into having sex. It rattles her. She feels she asked for it and could have blown her marriage.
She feels so guilty for leaving Emma and running off and dating/kissing another man, that it all gets to her and she tells all to her therapist.
The April 3rd date is here attempting to take her life.

FYI - Kimberly backed out of Broadway Cares for Jason. He had his vacation planned to leave Tuesday evening. She was not getting back from NY until then.
They needed to film the second week of April before he left and production closed for a week.
They asked her and she obliged.
Doesn't sound like JT and KMc aren't getting along to me - now does it.

Hey Disney friend- good luck on your new job.
Can you share anything further about the viewer response to the show as well as those in charge's concern about falling ratings. Is Guza involved trying to salvage storylines and create some interest in the show, or is it being done by others?

I used to hear about the meetings, I know there have been a couple in the last week alone. The three 1.9's were a real shock for people. The only thing that was salvageable was the high ratings from the snow storm that hit the country the week before. There were people singing "Let it Snow, Let it Snow" in the building Friday morning. It was funny but really sad too.
Viewer calls and letter have been negative for the most part. Except for the "couple fangroups" most of the general audience don't like the direction of the show at all. They seem particularly resentful about the supposed Hospital story not being about the Hospital staff at all, and just another Jason and Sonny story.
The PPD story isn't getting positive response, though fans love that KMc is getting a lead story, they just hate what's out there it seems from calls and letters.
Why does it feel like GH and ABC is trying to destroy the foundation of Robin and Patrick? Will they survive this latest storyline destruction since it seems like Guza is punishing Robin for wanting a child?
They aren't being destroyed as far as I've heard. KMc likes all the angsty tortuous stories. I think everything is going to hinge on if the actors stay or go. I think its hilarious that you guys think that JT or KMc have asked for other pairings, because that hasn't happened at all. Even more funny that BH asked to be paired with JT. You guys have to meet the actors and you'd know how far fetched that is.

Becky is pretty desparate to secure a new story and her eyes are set on JT. She is hoping that Kim will leave or that even if she stays she can use the uncertainty to get a new story or even a pairing. There is some stuff coming up with toxic waste that Scrub fans are going to hate, Becky is pressing through the media and a friend on the writing staff to get it prolonged and made worse. I do not think she will get her way this time though. Jason is dead set against it so he wont be asking for her and Frons likes Scrubs and wants them to continue.
But be prepared for a lot of Jarob and toxic waste pimping in the media over the next couple months. Also dont be surprised if some of SD's old friends and trusted insiders reappear with "toxic waste is endgame" speel.
Its bogus, but what is on screen soon will suggest it. Hang on tight and let TPTB hear you. Frons and Guza still want Scrubs and Jasam so let them know you support it. Dont fall for the baiters who are looking for buzz for dark void and toxic waste.

Actors Who Are Safe:
Kimberly McCullough
Jason Thompson
Kirsten Storms
Actors Recently Bumped to Recurring:
John J. York
Actors Being Looked at For Recurring:
Jason Cook
Actors Whose Characters Will Be Phased Out Before Fall (according to budgetary deadlines):
Jason Cook
John J. York
I do believe that fan response can save Ingo, Sarah, Brandon and Julie. Everything else on this list is pretty much a done deal. This has nothing to with the writers and execs feelings about any actor or character. It has to do with which characters they feel they can develop story for at this time.
As for fan response, what has been reported here seems more geared at making this board happy than anything resembling the truth.
Scrubs - Mixed response but more negative than anticipated.
~ how it is ~

Fan Response
Scrubs continue to lead
Jason and Kim continue to get good individual support along with BA and KS

robin tells patrick she does not love him or emma

I can't stomach this show any longer. There are so many rumors floating around. None of this are positive. I am a dire heart Scrubs fans and not liking any of this.

They have Patrick having an Affair with Liz. I hate that. They have Robin having unprotected sex wit MATT and he dies. They have the SCRUBs NOT EVER getting back together.



Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 8:55 AM  

Whatever happened to the Robin who KNEW that Patrick would show up at the "first" wedding? What have you done to Robin?? What have you done to all of Robin's friends? What have you done to Robin's family? What have you done to Scrubs??

This is the shortest any "loving" couple was married. Did they have a day of happiness? Did they have a day of Love in the Afternoon?

There is so much "stress" in the world today - economy, war, poverty..

I don't need to watch Robin and Patrick "stressing" and this irresponsible depiction of PPD.

The "news and info" that you are portraying....can ultimately be harmful to someone who watches a hospital show and may be experiencing PPD. For the second time (first time - the RAPE of Laura by Luke) GH is being totally unresponsible and potentially harmful.

Get your act together.

This fan who is starting to "miss" everyday (even when DVR'd) as my interest is wanning.

GUZA how low can you go. You must HATE the SCRUBS being Happy very Bad. You know what someone is Paying your salary for the piece of JUNK you are writing. YOU need to go. Get a grip on your writing. Don't you know that mostly women watch DAYTIME Soaps and don't want to see the GARBAGE you are writing. WOMEN like Happiness, Loving, and Caring for a little while. NOT CHEATING AND LYING like you have the SCRUBs doing.

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 9:03 AM  

The fan who posted the comment about the DVR - I have stopped. As a Working Married Woman, watching GH was my quiet time until my Husband come home. Now NO MORE DVR. I use to Love watching 90 percent of the characters, espcially the SCRUBS. It is now Worth my time and Energy. GUZA is giving someone with PPD in real life and who is suffering this show bad publicity and for someone who already had it.

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 9:35 AM  

Wow, me too. I told my husband he didn't need to record for me anymore. The writers don't seem to regard women as anything more than liars, cheats or just idiots. So they ahd to make sure that Robin fits into those categaories. Look at all the women in the show and you will see what I am talking about.

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 11:02 AM  

I would rather have seen Robin LEAVE GH then endure what we are seeing now - they should have killed her off when she had Emma and the blood disorder (DIC). We could have watched a nice funeral and then allowed JT to "act" through the grief. Instead, we get garbage. Guza - why not have Robin raped, robbed and killed or better yet, loose her memory or go into a coma - leaving Patrick to start over and find Love in the Afternoon as a single father.

This plot will bring back viewers and pull up GH ratings - if we don't all just abandon the GH ship.

I don't get how the writers can be this deliberatly off base.

Robin is a legacy character who is strong ,smart ,HIV+ but lives a clean and healthy life and is the only female character in GH that can relate to all women in real life except now .Trashing the character by the writers does not help all women who works so hard to have a happy and healthy family with a successful career.It's about time to write trashy storyline about all the male characters in GH or replace the male writer with a female writer who can relate to women of all ages and ethnics.This is the end of GH show legacy that started with true and compelling stories 45years ago and now spiralling out of control because of writers who do not care about the viewers opinion and would rather let the show go down in history as the worst soap opera we ever had.

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 3:01 PM  

I so agree. I have been watching Robin since she was little - thru NO Parents, HIV, SHOT, and WANTING A BABY MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

GUZA just let the SCRUBs be happy. The only happy moment I have scene in the last 3 MONTHS was their wedding, which lasted until IDO.




Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 3:15 PM  

Making the SCRUBS not together at the end of this SWeep is a Disaster. I am hearing that Robin will continue to have an affair with this Brad guy and Patrick will hooks up with either LIZ or Carly.

I hope you are reading this. How did you become writers for a show that is mostly watched by Women.

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 4:47 PM  

If the rumors/deadly gossip going around with Robin's coming up storyline is true it is toxic, unforgiven and irresponsible for the writers as everyone knows that this character is HIV+.The message that GH and writer is sending to all HIV+ sufferers is without a doubt heartless ,degrading and cannot be tolerated.Message to TPTB:if you have any decency left put an end to this out of control toxic rumors!!

Anonymous,  March 16, 2009 at 9:48 PM  

You can't have it all....

Robin is on a regiment of pills for HIV - though dormant...

Excessive drinking and HIV cocktail does not go together.

She either wants to live - or not; and, the Robin we all know and love would know she needed help - and wouldn't deny it. She is the bearer of truth. She was the one who told the AJ that Michael was his - not Jason's. She told Jax that John was his.

She is the one who faces the can't have it all ways.
