    Why is GH so violent ?
    miss opinion...

    Gh has always been action packed , but all of this gunplay is getting out of hand . Seeing your favorite characters being held at gun point , shot and being blown up by bombs is getting tired and old . I know that the writers are working with a certain formula , but they can try to change it up every once in awhile . Even relationships on this show are turbulent and volatile . last year , both Jason and Sam were shot - Twice !!! , and that was within a six month time frame , when you have to start recycle storylines that frequently maybe its time to go in new direction . Violence isn't exciting , especially when it is used against characters you know from the start aren't going to die .

    I agree alittle to violent but it defnently blows all other soaps away.This is the number one soap for me.I think if it was not for the mob it might not be as good.

    It's all about sweeps.

    I love the old g.h.

    Luke and Laura, Robert and Anna.

    Those were the good old days.

    I am liking the whole explosion thing but not for anyone to die I think that was a good idea and hope it turns out to be a good story line.

    Unfortunatly it brings in vewers. Which ups rating and sells advertising. Its all about the bottom line. I personally cant stand all the gun play either and this whole story line is driving me nuts. They have only covered 3hrs, in 4 days and they keep replaying that explosion every day. Like we dont know its going to blow. But I keep watching cus I need to know whats going to happen next. But that was there plan of course, get you hooked wanting no needing to know whos hurt or dead in that building.

    I got sick of the explosion playing the last 4 days over and over.I think that was dumb.Finally now we can go on to see what happens

    that is why GH is a far cry from what it used to be...It pales to other shows...and the ratings reflect that.

    Tristan Rogers said it best when he said GH is not fooling the fans, and eventually even the fans that kid themselves with the belief GH is a great soap will feel raped...of their intelligence.
