I wholeheartedly agree. What I took away from the Alison ending is that this is how head writer Ron Carlivati sees himself. Is Alison Ron’s alter ego. ?? Notice the author on the script? I agree, he and Frank knew they had nine months and they squandered it by tacking a few days on the end of what they had already planed instead of starting over and creating a fitting ending. Everyone knew PP was ify at best. The Ericka segments were wonderful, the show show should have ended there. The prison break is more typical late-summer fare and TSJ/Alison should have been resolved in time for Christmas. Ron and Frank had plenty of time to wrap things up, but the chose not to. I really don’t get why so many folks seem to like them. Maybe they have a big family.;-) Needless to say, I won’t be watching what they do to GH.

I hear that once John McBain arrests Sonny and Jason, he hooks up with Sam, why Sam?!!! John and Natalie had just reconciled at the last episode of OLTL, he should be going to PC with Natalie and Liam, now wouldn’t that make more sense?! I prefer Jolie, and not Sam, ugggghhhh, another one of carlivati’s brilliant ideas!

Keith, I agree about RC, he actually does focus on himself when he writes, instead of focusing on OLTL’s past history, no imagination and certainly no creativity, sorry RC, I can’t give you any credit, cause you just haven’t got any!!!!

I am still GRIEVING for the loss of the best soap on television, and the idiocy of the CEO’s who decided to cancel it. Instead, if money was an issue, they could have made it into a 1/2 hour show instead. That would have cut the actors’ salaries in half, right? I hope the channel goes bankrupt. They deserve it.

Don’t care what happens on GH won’t be watching. ABC cancelled OLTL why would you watch GH? The actress who plays Sam doesn’t measure up to OLTL characters. Bring back OLTL to 1/2 hour show. Nobody wants to watch the mob show

That matchup ran its course as Caleb/Livvie on Port Charles. John has a family, and that’s where it needs to develop.
