Oh, Sweeps Stunts, How I Hate You.
It's that time again when, in its quest to provide us with quality entertainment, General Hospital brings out the big guns. By "big guns", I mean "the exact same stories they have done before". And by "provide us with quality entertainment", I mean "try their best to goad the few remaining viewers into quitting".
Yes, it's sweeps time, which means that , in the grand tradition of GH sweeps, we are in for the following:
- A story unfolding backwards
Clumsy attempts at integrating the mob and non-mob portions of the canvas for the event that we will never forget
Plots directly lifted from successful primetime shows
A dead Quartermaine or two
I was all set to be annoyed by how repetitive and lame this latest sweeps stunt looks, but I have decided that, at the very least, it will be something to break up the monotony of seeing people have the EXACT SAME CONVERSATION every single day. Seriously, have Sonny and Claudia even had new dialogue in the last few weeks or is it literally just the same script over and over? If I have to put up with CGI in order to hear about something else besides docks, Zaccharas and trampy daughters, so be it.
