:: Pretty Reliable::
AIG none at the time of this post
Tracee at SZ:
understanding that she's also the person he tells his suspicions too about Robin's accident or whatever the hell happens when she's hallucinating.
Instead of, you know, a professional shrink.
So now Liz will think Robin had an affair and think she tried to kill herself and only the two of them will be in on these little secrets.
Really, how very nice for them.
Um, I think I accidentally said something I shouldn't have
I thought this was out there and now I'm thinking it's not. :/
I knew the first part was out and I thought the second part
was, as well, but I just looked at the SB and it doesn't have that.
Oops.
--
Kimbrely was talking about the show setting up the rivalary betwen Robin and Liz. That's where she's had to remind that that Robin and Liz were friends. Then she was going on about remembering the history between the 2 characters and then going from there. She didn't think Riz should be as blatant, like "I hate you, no I hate you more"..like Robin is with Carly, because they are friends
Here's the part I hate...She said if Patrick and Liz do end up having an affair or whatever, she wouldn't treat Liz the same way she would treat Carly. It's a different dynamic between the woman.
She added it at the end She was talking about the set up of the rivalary and then she herself adding in the affair part.
---
I just knew that Patrick told Liz about thinking it wasn't an accident.

:: Could be Complete Fiction::
Daytime Dish/Backup Board (source and source):
3/25
Triangles for the following:
Robin/Patrick/Liz

Backstage is more interesting then the actual show
-Speaking of contracts, that's a touchy subject at GH studio's. Not all actors are being approached for contract negotiations. If you are wondering why JT & KMc are suddenly in the midst of an A-story, it's simply 4 words: "It is contract time". The show would like to keep them. Their increased airtime and frontburner status was the lure to keep them. The problem is KMc & JT are both being tight lipped about whether they will resign. Anyone saying they know, knows more then I do.
-One person very interested at Prospect regarding KMc's contract is BH. There is a reason Liz is suddenly all up in Scrubs grill. What it comes down to is if KMc stays, the show will not re-up BH. If KMc goes, they will re-up BH. Before anyone says it's this is KMc's fault, it's not. It's a budget matter. The show has to save some cash, and they have made the decision as to who they want to keep and who they want to go. BH, unlike JT & KMc, is not in contract negotitions yet even though her contract is up before both of them. But, the show realizes that a show called General *HOSPITAL* needs a doctor or nurse or two. So if KMc says adios, BH will be that "nurse".

TPTB are testing various fanbases. They are most interested in the reaction towards Jason/Robin and Jason/Sam. That is why there are scenes about the PPD and Micheal with the two women. If Jason/Robin get a more favorable response than Jason/Sam, then they will move Patrick/Liz on. That is why Patrick/Liz have been interacting so much.

Carly will turn to Patrick

scrubs is the only safe couple at the moment on general hospital.
just call me
'the smart one

There is a reason for all the editing going on and it isn't story driven; it is a result of someone not being able to do their job. If story seems to lack consistency there is a reason and it has nothing to do with ratings

3/26
Carly and Patrick will spend some " quality " time together .

Much of how the upcoming storylines are dependent on contract negotiations. Management wants to keep both Kimberly and Jason, however, they are preparing back-up scenarios in case negotiations do not go in the direction they want.
Contracts are not being negotiated together as a package but will be done at the same time.

I DOWN RIGHT HATE THAT THE WRITERS ARE TRYING TO PAIR UP PATRICK AND LIZ BECAUSE OF CONTRACT TALK.

IF ROBIN AND PATRICK ARE NOT A COUPLE DOWN THE LINE. I AM DONE WITH GENERAL HOSPITAL FOR GOOD.

I WILL TURN TO OTHER SOAPS ON ANOTHER STATION ALL TOGETHER.

THIS IS SO STUPID. THE NAME OF THE SHOW IS GENERAL HOSPITAL, WHERE THEIR ARE PLENTY OF DOCTORS AND NURSES.

I AM ALREADY SO CLOSE TO NOT WATCHING GH BECAUSE OF HOW THEY ARE PORTRAYING ROBIN WITH THE PPD AND NOW HOW PATRICK IS TREATING HER WITH THEIR (BOTH) SO-CALLED FRIEND LIZ.

THIS IS DOWNRIGHT DEGRADING WOMEN WHO WATCH THIS SHOW. THINK WE ARE SO STUPID THAT WE DON'T SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.

GUZA/FRONS IF YOU DON'T THINK THAT YOUR RATING WILL COMPLETELY DROP OFF THE CHART. DON'T LET ROBIN/PATRICK WITH EMMA AS A COUPLE AND FAMILY. THE FANS WILL NOT TAKE THE MESS YOU ARE DOING.

YOU CAN BET AND COUNT ON THAT.

I think you've hit on something BIG, anon.

GH has screwed themselves but good for not developing Patrick's backstory better these few years. JT and Patrick may be liked, but he's got no story, certainly no story with Liz, and would likely be relegated to the background like Jax.

GH would do better having him in a ton of scenes with Matt and Noah, they just won't win fans pushing another couple.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 7:59 AM  

Okay so now we're reading about a potential hook-up/affair with Carly?? Patrick is already having an emotional affair with Liz you shouldn't be discussing the intimate details of your marriage with someone else and sharing secrets about it! Even if Robin isn't telling about Brad (yet) remember Patrick has known about Dante since BEFORE they married;and he knew how Robin felt about paternity issues! There was also the line from Anna at the wedding about not keeping secrets or telling lies...Patrick forgets he started that first!
I think it is pretty obvious that the morons who write and produce this show don't have a clue as to how to keep a viewer interested and not disgusted!
I don't want my couple to be happy all the time and without drama but there has to be a balance.
JT and KMc share an on-screen chemistry that cannot be faked or equalled and to totally blow that out of the water is ridiculous.
This show needs to fix what's broken now and not worry about later because if they continue down this road the only thing that will happen later is...cancellation.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 8:14 AM  

you got that right ano. this show would be canceled. the writing is so screwed up. patrick has secrets from robin, but she a secret or better yet with the ppd would she remember some of the brad thing.

i fill jason and kimberly has a powerful realistic chemistry on the set and what i saw on the cruise. why would the dumb writers want to break that up, when it is keeping fans(especially women) watching this show.

also, all couples have problems/drama in real life and on the other soap i watch. but this mess the writers have made, it totally out of line.

they need to fix it now with the scrubs or just seat back and watch one of the best soaps on tv fall of the air.

WHETHER WATCH THE SCRUBS ON YOU TUBE WHEN THEY WERE FUN, LOVING AND GUESS WHAT FIGHTING.

NOT LIKE THE MESS THE WRITERS ARE HAVING THEM, ESPECIALLY ROBIN GO THRU. ALTHOUGH BOTH ACTORS, I LOVE TO WATCH.


RENEW THEIR CONTRACT AND KEEP THEM AS A PAIR WITH PROBLEM, OR YOU WILL LOSE ME AS A GH FAN, NO IF, AN, OR BUT ABOUT IT.......

I know that the writers of GH are misogynists, but I thought they would at least do this storyline with decency and dignity. Dream on, I know...
I hope not too many young ladies without children are watching this, because it may really scare them from having kids for fear of PPD. The meassage GH is planning to send is -
Want kids, have kids, get PPD, run to bars, husband will be angry at you and then your friends will snag your husband...

Great message...

I stopped watching this show after the biotoxin when they dragged the PPD storyline.I thought after Emma ended up in the tree and Robin admitted all the mistakes she made that she will get her treatment.The only thing that I watch now are the old You Tube clips and remember the good old years when GH had a different writer.Last night I saw GH 35th Anniversary Special about BJ's heart transplant,Monica's breast cancer and Robin's HIV story.Those are the stories that I missed from GH.The family dynamics/drama of Q's,Spencers,Scorpio's,Cassadine's,Hardy's.Now the stories are all dark and depressing esp.the horrible PPD storyline.Iam not sure that GH can fix this mess by testing all the characters and see which one will be able to attract fanbase .It will not work esp.if you have already a secure and dedicated fanbase like the Scrubs.Why break-up and ruined the only strong and powerful couple that you have with Robin/Patrick ? Why risk the show that's been with us for more than 45 years and throw this is all for what? Would the writer please give us some sense of hope and assurance that you still care about your viewers.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 11:37 AM  

Let me get this straight...NOW, JUT NOW they are worried about the fact that the "General Hospital" does not have many hospital staff left on the show?

WHO HAD THEM KILLED OFF!

If you have budgeting issues, why aren't the FBI, Winni, Claudia etc meeting their end?

SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE, I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING....

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 12:43 PM  

You are not missing anything. The writers are so stupid. They need to get rid of the cast mention in the previous ano. They wonder why this soap after 45years is going down the drain.

No Happy Scrubs Family....No ME...

I hope you are getting the message writers. If not, watch you show go down the DRAIN.

GH will not survive if the writer decided to break-up this couple.The only reason we use to watch this show was the chemistry and dynamics of Robin and Patrick's character and the amazing talent of both actors.Here in Vancouver ,BC we do not even tape it anymore because of the cruel and insensitive PPD storyline as most of my friends had suffered this terrible illness and was not even close to all of Robin's behavour.Iam just saying to GH and the writer that if one of the pair decided not to renew his/her contract you might as well write both of them off as either one of them pairing with another actor will not attract the show a new fanbase as you have now with the Scrubs.Some pairings are meant to be together until both decided to leave the show .Iam sure GH and the writer will find out when they split the couple and the show will never be able to recover.
The storyline about the Mob, guns ,cruel to children and downgrading of women does not deserve the viewers time and dedication.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 5:00 PM  

Spliting the Scrubs up and not renewing their contracts as a couples is will be the most stupidness things that the writers can ever do. The Scrubs is what is keeping alot of fans around.

Don't use get it Writers. We are tired of all the MOB scene and degrading women and this not what the title of the show is about.

Also, give Liz another storyline and leave her out of the Scrubs. Patrick and Robin both has family on the show. Let them turn to them. Emma has a Nanny, isn't that enough.

This storyline has been long enough. Let it end. Quick bringing other people into the mix.Let them all have another Sweep on their own.

Like Kimberly said on another blog, the not wanting her child, I think is enough storyline. Let the Scrubs have fights and drama, not breaking up. Or you will lose me as a watcher.

If the writer's plan is to have Patrick's character start an affair with any women in the show then that's the end for me.I have not watch it since the start of the PPD storyline and just waiting for this to end hoping there is a happy ending and I will tune in again.It's different when Patrick was single and hitting all the women in the show but now that he is married cheating is not in my dictionary and I cannot tolerate soap opera or in real life.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 6:49 PM  

This whole PPD storyline is frustrating me to no end. Patrick and Robin have been a favorite couple of mine since they first got together. But now, the writers are ruining them. I really don't see how they can be the sweet, sexy, fun-loving couple they used to be.

If the writers of GH want to have a PPD storyline, then fine. It's not bad to take up a cause every now and then. But the way they are writing it is horrible. They're making it seem like Robin is choosing to act and feel the way she is. Way to make PPD look like something you choose to have that just makes you "crazy." And I also hate the way Patrick is responding to it all. He is so freaking self-righteous. Like, all of a sudden, he's Mr. Perfect and Robin is just so horrible. He's been judging her from the beginning and it's horrible. And they've been making Liz and Maxie judge her to. I hate that. PPD isn't something to be judged negatively for.

And this weird Liz and Patrick thing needs to go. I have just recently been starting to like Liz's character, now that she's finally not with Jason. (Because, btw, I really prefer him with Sam). But anyways, they do not make a good couple. The writers are making Patrick so hypocritical and are trying to force a new couple that just can't work in my eyes.

Why is it that every time the show starts to get going really well, the writers have to completely ruin it?! I don't even watch the Patrick and Robin scenes anymore. I fast forward through them because I just can't stand it any longer. Don't make me quit watching the show altogether!

Did you see the ratings Frons and Guza?!

6th!! That's 6 out of 8 soaps! Bet that makes the advertisers jump for joy, of course in the normal world someone's ass would be canned.

When is something there at ABC going to wake up?? When it drops to #7? or does it have to drop to #8 before you realize that Guza doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

Anonymous,  March 26, 2009 at 9:17 PM  

I know someone call the ISA (or whatever the agency is called on GH) and get Anna and Robert home. Robin needs her parents. They don't take her garbage (remember Anna at her death bed.)

We need them to put Robin and Patrick back on course before someones actions have the consequences impossible to forgive...and Robin is getting pretty close....and if all I read is true...so is Patrick....

Are they adults, doctors, parents? Or are they children trying to do each other one best?

Kill the PPD storyline quickly....give the Scrubs some life. Give the soap some happiness. Watch the ratings soar...


And if Frons and Guba have been reading all this negative about Scrubs....I'm starting to think they want to sink GH on purpose....

a Very Disgruntled Fan...

That's what I also think...this is deliberate...
