A Guilty Pleasure

I am about to come clean with a guilty pleasure. I admitted a few months ago that I like to watch TV programs. Well one of my guilty pleasures is a soap opera. GASP!!! I started watching General Hospital in my early middle school years and have continued to watch off and on through the years. I am now 43. So you can probably do the math and assume that I have watch about 20 years of GH. I was such a big fan in middle school that my mother let me stay home from school to watch the wedding of Luke and Laura. I think back on the fact that I was watching when I was in 6th grade and I would certainly not let my 6th grader watch any soap opera. Some of my favorite characters over the years were Brenda, Sonny, Lucky and Elizabeth. Jonathan Jackson, the original actor to play Lucky came back last October and I started watching again. Sonny has been in the pits of evil and evil doing for a few years now and I kept thinking to myself you know Brenda needs to come back and set him straight. Well low and behold the higher ups listened and today Vanessa Marcil is back as Brenda for the first time in 7 years and will be on GH for the next year. Let me tell you that I am one happy camper. Okay after saying all this please don't think lowly of me.

oooh - Jonathan Jackson is back? I did not know that. I watched GH for years! I got hooked in college, and was a devoted fan for a long time. I saw some commercials that Brenda Marcil was coming back...I'm tempted to check back into the show.

I don't think lowly of you! I watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey, for heaven's sake!

Ooo, scandalous! :) I watch The Bachelor and Bachelorette so...

I can't remember the last time I watched a soap opera, but I did really love Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives in Highschool.

LOL!!!! I love it! I'm a night time TV watcher and never got into soaps because I was never home to watch them probably. Enjoy and I won't tell Mikey the secret, but he used to watch them too in the frat house in college!

It's so nice to find someone another GH lover! Ironically I began watching when I was in junior high as well. I can't say I watch much these days (time issue) but I will say that I enjoy watching a clip or two online when I can. It's amazing how you can miss so much and then pick right back up with the characters and catch up so easily! General Hospital has always been one of my favorite shows. I have always been drawn into the characters in it.
