Buzz... spoiler
Gone, Baby, Gone

Robin's PPD storyline continues to generate controversy among GH fans, but KMc insists that everything depicted so far is based on reality. "TV is always extremely exaggerated - especially soap opera - but it's true to the extreme McCullough assures. "There are all types of cases of postpartum. You can have it all the way from very mild to very extreme; it just depends on the person. I have two really good friends who have had it. The strangest thing about postpartum is literally not wanting to hold your baby; not wanting to be close to your baby; not wanting your baby to exist, basically. That's very real."
Sneak Peeks spoiler
Robin attends therapy, but balks at following advice, and turns to Sonny.
Next week: Patrick fears for Robin's life
There's a CarJax article spoiler
But it's like 14 different ways of LW saying Carly thinks Michael moving his finger is a sign he's trying to come back to her. It's a sign. That's a sign. It means something. There's a sign.
Patrick thinks it's a reflex, the surgeon Jax flew in thinks it's a reflex.
But everyone backs Carly 100%, Sonny trusts her instincts, Jax is all yay Carly, whatever you want Carly, Jason is... muted, he just doesn't want her to get her hopes up, yadda yadda.
The surgeon tells her that out of 10 patients who have had the experimental surgery, 2 of them actually died. She says is what Michael doing now, living?
She doesn't know what to do, risk his life to give him a life or keep him the way he is. She asks Michael what she should do and says... wait for it... "give me a sign!"

Friday, March 27:
Patrick vents about Robin to Sonny.

You guys have already been told what happens. Patrick tries to kiss Liz while Robin is away in treatment. Liz tells him no but still hangs around and helps with Emma. Robin comes back and is jealous of Liz's place in their lives. Patrick is not supportive of her jealousy and that is the new tension.

3 surprise love scenes for May Sweeps
Carly/Patrick - Patrick and Carly turn to each other after Carly learns Jax knew about Claudia and after Robin continues to push Patrick away

If I was a Scrubs fan, I wouldn't be concerned about Liz.
Just sayin....
Thanks! Do you think Scrubs will have to worry about any third party?
Scrubs are their own worst enemy. That's all I will say.

So I still don't get this whole garbage we are being fed about the scrubs story. Carly?? Liz?? Don't care which one he cheats with it's still wrong.
As someone else stated this couple has only been married for 3 months!! And, unlike most couples on soaps their relationship has been a long one 3-plus years. With so much that could have been written to prevent the "boring couple" (that the soap world thinks has to occur because happy and couple don't exist in their heads!). It is really disheartening and depressing to watch the slow process of destroying this couple. (That's right I said depressing note to TIIC depressing is not a positive "I want to go buy new clothes and make-up and pick up strange men but not touch my newlywed husband" state of mind!)
The actors are doing a great job with the crap that is being written for them. And I would guess even they remember more of this couple's history than the writers do. A couple who would talk everything to death now can't talk at all. A couple who knew each others hot buttons and what to avoid are surprised when the other is upset when one of those is pushed (did Patrick really think Robin would be cool with him talking to Carly???)
I genuinely like watching JT and KMc act TOGETHER but I find I prefer to watch old clips and relive the history than watch this stuff play out!!
The fix better happen soon and the damage better not be irreversible or I am done with GH!!

Does anyone else literally feel sick after reading this stuff?

I know of one popular scrubs site shutting down because of the disgust!

Does anyone know if the heads at ABC know about sites like these and pay attention, or is this someplace we get to blow off steam and it really goes nowhere?

I guess GH and the writer do not care that the ratings is going down the toilet.Well guess what ?as a viewer I do not care too! They might as well close the shop if they think that I will go back tuning in while they destroy the only good thing that they have with the Scrubs.Good luck to the writer and GH management, there's always the unemployment office that they can apply.

Please let scrubs be happy! NO Patrick/Liz or Patrick/Carly.

Anonymous,  March 27, 2009 at 12:45 PM  

I have officially stopped watching...I don't want my last memories of Patrick and Robin being this b...shit they are forcing down our throats.

I hope GH fails....and Frons/Guza are held accountable.

I will rewatch the many taped episodes I have of NS2 and the weddings...to my delight. In my mind I will imagine Patrick and Robin lived happily ever after....

The Scrubs Hub March 27, 2009 at 12:59 PM  

I don't claim to have any inside track to the studio, however Soapnet is aware of this site, it's one of the few fansites they're linked to. I also sent off an email today to Mr Frons on what is turning me off as a viewer, and essentially this site (with a link) if they start moving into a serious direction toward the 3rd party anvils they're dropping .

One would hope that after the recent ratings drop that they'd at least take our feedback seriously and repair the one story that was working in their favor...contract negotiations or not.

I totally hate what I just read on the SCRUB HUB. If they(writers - FRONS/GUZA) let Patrick have an affair with Carly/Liz, I am done with this show. The writers act like that don't hear or read what the Fans are saying. I know any script can be rewritten in a matter of seconds. This is so disgusting and I will start to watch GH and the Scrubs like I'm use to seeing them. Fighting and getting alone. Not this CRAP I am seeing now

It looks like know end to this PPD B...Sh... How much more do they think the fans are going to take.

MAKE THE SCRUBS HAPPY FOR THE FANS AND DO IT VERY QUICKLY AND OR YOU WILL SEE THIS SHOW FAIL AND I HOPE THAT YOU KNOW HOW IT FEEL TO BE ON THE UMEMPLOYMENT LINE.

GOOD-BYE bad writers, who don't actually like the SCRUBS.

I TAKE MY HATS OFF THE JASON/KIMBERLY FOR VERY GOOD ACTING ON WHAT THEY HAVE BEFORE THEM.

ONE MORE THING, if they can't renew the Scrubs contract as a couple, don't do it at all. Don't pair them with anyone else. If you do, I still will not be watching your show. Look at your latest rating, going down hill very, very, very, fast.

Will Gh and the writer please put an end to this nightmare! The lying,secrets,cheating,deception and all the ugly things going on right now in the writer's plan.The Robin that the viewers know lives by the book,honest,resilient and truthful.Let Robin bring it all out in the open and tell Patrick the truth.The day she went to the Haunted Star,the diner incident with Emma and the truth about Brad .Let Patrick and Robin discuss and deal with this as a husband and wife .I know this does not happen in the writer's world/mind but it does happen with your regular viewers life.So for once think about your viewers because without your viewers there will be NO General Hospital.

Now we have to see posted that Carly and Patrick will make love. Writers you are so Disgusting with this show. Like I said, when the writers get thru Patrick will become a MAN WHORE and all the women on the show will be SLUTS. Instead of the writers, making it so Patrick helps Robin, she has to witness him with LIZ. When is it going to be about Patrick actually helping Robin, instead of making her feel guilty of everything. Get everyone out of the middle especially Liz/Carly/Jason/and the Carpenter. Have Patrick go to therapy with Robin. Isn't this storyling about how PPD affects the women and her family. Not every Tom, Dick and Harry you can throw in the mix.

Writers, when is this over-PPD and the SCRUBs get some LOVE SCENES and some HAPPY FAMILY scenes. Or you are just the COLD-BLOODED when making this happen for the FANS.

I SO HOPE YOU ARE READING ALL THE FANS COMMENTS REGARDING THE SCRUBS FROM ALL WEBSITE AND ARE TAKING WHAT WE SAYS VERY VERY SERIOUSLY. I AM SO SICK TO MY STOMACH AND TIRED OF READING ABOUT THIS THING. THIS SHOW HAS NO HAPPY COUPLE. THE SCRUBS WERE THE ONLY ONE AND YOU ARE DESTROYING THEM. I AM FED UP. IF NOT, BYE BYE GH AND ALL THE FANS.

LAST KIMBERLY AND PATRICK ARE DOING A GREAT JOB AT ACTING. KEEP THEM AS A COUPLE FOR A VERY LONG LONG TIME - THAT MEANS MANY YEARS TO COME.
