Any new info on Piz you can share?
Nope not yet, All I know is that they continue to grow close. And, after the initial kiss Liz avoids Patrick, but eventually starts to being around him again, after he tells her that he's sorry for putting her in that predictament. Epiphany will be one of the people that will notice how close they've got and she'll be warning Elizabeth away from Patrick.
ratings are still unfavorable and execs are running around like chickens trying to solve the problem continue to call in and support your couples, actors, actresses... things are not pretty at prospect
sweeney is looking into things at the moment.....
Couples safe:
Michaels return is like a storm he will be wreaking havoc and be full of anger at his loved ones.. look for it to cause problems for jason, carly, jax, sonny, and alot of pc
you can call me

I will support GH only if they make it right with the SCRUBS (Patrick and Robin). Leave Liz and Brad out of the Scrubs mix. If the so-call writers are going to keep this Brad on, get him another lady - steer him away from My Scrubs. Better yet take him off the soap. One other thing, I like Liz, but give Liz something else to do. She has 2 boys, let her take care of them, not Emma. Emma has a mother that needs help.

The writers insist on mixing important issues and sleaze.

They do not know that it is not necessary.
There was no need for the Brad stuff, the issue in itself is painful.

They are really good with the nonsense (killers walking around, mob kingpins have people walking in/out of his house undetected, etc), but serious topics they cannot handle.

when is the writers/guza/frons going to make this a famiy problem. it thought ppd was that. i know it starts with the woman. but everyone is involve. when are they going to have Patrick joining Robin in counseling. this storyline is so wrong.

you need to make the scrubs a happy, loving family.

not now have patrick falling for liz and kissing her.

i guess now they both will be cheaters. SO SO wrong and totally stupid and now it is sending a message to married people with the woman having an illness, let the husband cheat on his wife with their so call friend.

bad bad bad writing and i am tired of it and the show.

Why can't the writer for once make this storyline right? Enough of the lying/cheating that is the concept in all of GH and let Robin tell the truth to Patrick about Brad or Patrick be honest and confront Robin and tell her what he saw.Let Robin deal with the consequences and for Patrick to forgive her as a loving husband /father would do because he knows that her wife is very sick and needs help.The writer transformed Patrick from an arrogant jerk 3 years ago to a loving husband and father and to go back by cheating on his sick wife is totally wrong. Writer should stop this madness and let the family deal the illness as a whole and let both of them get the counselling they needed.If the writer will do this right then your viewers will go back and start tuning in. A new life,a new beginning,a fresh start for this family who had suffered enough .Peace and happiness is very important in life.

The writer/GH morally and ethically cross the line with the PPD storyline.They sensationalized a terrible illness and made it into a sleazy story hoping the viewers are not smart enough to recognized it.They are sending a wrong message to families who are suffering from this terrible illness .Why not get Patrick to see a professional therapist and discuss all his concerns instead of having a non professional friend who does not have a clue to PPD illness. This is a sign to a more complicated and sleazy storyline that the writer is heading into.For once make it right with your viewers and show some compassion to all the families who are going through with this terrible illness.

Patrick is emotionally a basket case right now and would the writer please get him some professional counsel,see a shrink and also take some meds instead of leaning on a friend which could make more damage .I think he needs to see a therapist now more so than Robin .With what he went through with the biotoxin crisis and dealing with his wife's illness can cause him to have a nervous breakdown.Both Patrick and Robin needs professional counselling not another person to lean on.

Istartung to think that maybe there won't be a full-on cheating between Patrick and Liz but the writers/ABC brass need to realize that most people watch a soap for some release. There is enough violence and pain going on in the real world!!
This is/was a couple that seemed real and we wanted them to make it TOGETHER; not that they would be happy sunny days all the time but we haven't had ANY in sooooo long.
Make it right and make them work before you lose every viewer. And without viewers there is no GH.

I keep reading call in and express your angst and anger at the PPD storyline. Do you mean on the GH hotline number?

I've already sent Guza and Frons letters.....almost monthly. It doesn't appear to be working.

Bring happiness back to scrubs. There are so many other stories these 2 doctors with a daughter could be doing....entertain us. Or, if you must do a PPD storyline - give us a break - tell the truth (not the whole Nancy Green cheat thing).

A woman with PPD (like I was) wouldn't have driven to a strange town - bought clothes (hell I didn't shower for a week) - and gone to the movies. You have no energy for any of that. You stay home and mope. PPD doesn't make you lie, cheat and act out like Robin is doing.

End this storyline QUICKLY - or, I will take a GH vacation for about one year.

The ratings are reflecting this horrific story arche....

Get it together.

Let's start a grass roots campaign - everyone opposed to the Scrubs storyline call in on Friday, 3/27 and leave the same message....BRING HAPPINESS BACK TO PATRICK AND ROBIN...WE WANT LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON....

Let's all call: 323-671-4583

Poor Patrick~
He saw Robin kissing another man and now he wants to bail....
How many times in the past did Robin have to watch him kiss, make out, take off with another women and break her heart...and she stayed true to him...but now in her time of need, he's already thinking and talking about bailing and cheating on her...
Isn't that the mature intelligent thing for him to do...
Atta boy don't deserve Robin or Emma....
Grow up and remember all the promises you made to Robin on your Wedding Day...
