Storyline

During the original show up through the 1970s, the show primarily covered Dr. Steve Hardy (John Beradino) and his friend, Nurse Jessie Brewer (Emily McLaughlin). Late in the 1970s, the show was doing badly in the ratings, so a new executive producer, Gloria Monty, decided to move the show's focus away from the hospital and onto material more relevant to a younger audience than the stereotypical "bored housewife", thus bringing in Luke and Laura, (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) and eventually having them marry in a stereotypical fantasy wedding that would not be matched until the real-life marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

Trivia

Towards 2005 and the beginning of 2006, the virus storyline brought back a herd of immensely popular characters. Rick Springfield had previously returned as Dr. Noah Drake and stayed throughout the beginning. Brad Maule returned as Dr. Tony Jones, and asked the writers to kill off his character. The presumed dead Robert Scorpio returned, bringing in additional viewers and Tristan Rogers has decided to return ornament at the end of March 06, Emma Samms returned as Holly Scorpio, also presumed dead, who held the virus cure for ransom. Bringing back old characters and actors has been such a hit for "General Hospital", they have decided to bring back John Ingle's version of Edward Quartermaine, try to get a storyline for Constance Towers' legendary Helena Cassadine, and plan in the future to bring back Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) to reunite with Anthony Geary's Luke Spencer.

Great soap opera
22 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

General Hospital is a long running soap opera that had wonderful leadership with Gloria Monty and Wendy Riche and amazing writers like Claire Labine. Also great performances by John Beradino,Rachel Ames, Tony Geary,Genie Francis,Tristan Rogers,Finola Hughes,Kimberly Mccullough,Vanessa Marcil,Alicia Leigh Willis and Billy Warlock.

Tristan Rogers and Finola Hughes were incredible as Robert and Anna in the 80s and 90s where GH was filled with action,adventure and romance.

The highlight of the 1990s included storylines of the family. BJ Jones's death, Monica Quartermaine fighting breast cancer, Stone and Robin's love story and their AIDS storyline. Plus the amazing chemistry and connection that made Sonny&Brenda soulmates.

GH hit a rough patch in 2000-2001 with many backstage changes but it is improving in 2002. One of the most promising current storylines is the AJ Quartermaine and Courtney Matthews relationship. Billy Warlock and Alicia Leigh Willis have phenomenal chemistry that makes watching in 2002 a must.
