: I'll answer everyone like this so i don't clutter the thread with too many quotes of my original post.
Thank you for your detailed repsonses. I do remember the Anna crossover.
Interesting rumor about the victor storyline being wrapped up so soon. I guess i can see it both ways, if they want to extend the GH/OLTL joint effort they could keep it a mystery or they could wrap it up and give OLTLers the first sign of closure.
I understand the feel of the invasion, foe me it was a welcome reprise, we finally got Todd back and then no more OLTL
And then for them to end the show on a cliff hanger (just like AMC) it's just cruel, so for me i was hoping this would just bring the OLTL fans a little closure. I had also hoped that the extra ratings/interest from OLT fans might help extend GH life span. I heard it had gotten extended for an undetermined amount of time, so maybe in the end it will be a good addition to the show.
I did watch the show originally but i think over the years i phased GH out, so coming back i knew who many of the characters were, and then i started off watching just the scenes with OLTLers but eventually became interested in other PCers, so i hope GH fans can take comfort in the fact that the 'invasion" created new GH fans.
LEVIC - yes Ft = Fulltime, i was kinda getting the impression that he was gaining a fan base in GH fans and so i can see him being offered a FT position on the show, instead of recurring, like Blair currently is.
Secretly i'd kinda love an integrated two town show, but i know that would never happen and i would hate to anger the GH fans even more as most have been very accommodating to the OLTLers. But a life long ABC soap addict can dream ....
My more realistic wishlist is to bring Blair and Natalie to PC on a more permanent role, just to flush out John and Todd's families so they have more people to play off of and i'm ok with saying goodbye to the rest of lanview.
I hope GH get's an extended life then what most assume, i hope that the additions breathe new life into GH and give it the extra ratings to use as leverage to keep it going beyond next year.
Yes, you're right, i remember a crossover with Sky as well.
The Victor/Robin thing remains a mystery to me, it just seems too coincidental that they are both lying in some bed in a secret location while their families think they are both dead. it seems too easy not to tie these stories together.
As for Jasam, i like them a lot. I don't like Jason attacking John all the time and i'm glad he will feel some regret this upcoming week. But I think they are adorable together from what i've seen and i hope they both get a happy ending with the safe return of their baby and we don't have to wait too long for it to be revealed that it's Jason's baby. You ever notice when spoilers say "it will be revealed" that doesn't mean the characters find out, it means the audience does and then we have to wait another couple months for it to play out for the character to discover the truth. That's my fear about the same/John sibling story. I knew they were siblings the moment he mentioned his sister and they talked about their strange "connection" Which was the first week i started watching. So as an inpatient person, it's been a bit torturous knowing how these soaps play these storylines out forever.
I've read a lot of angst about the Liz and Jason stuff, but i really believe it's nothing except maybe an arc created to create more anxiety in the minds of the Jasam fans. But out of all the GH story lines i've enjoyed the Jasam ones the most.
Thanks everyone for being so welcoming and answering my post in depth.
