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.

When One Life to Live was canceled in 2012, the rights were licensed to the production company Prospect Park to continue the series as an on-line show, but financial and legal issues forced them to suspend their plans to continue the series. Former One Life to Live executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati took over the respective duties on General Hospital. Roger Howarth carried over his One Life role of Todd Manning, Kristen Alderson carried over her role of Star Manning, and Micheal Easton his role of John McBain, Easton also reprized his role from the GH spin-off Port Charles of Caleb Morley/Stephen Clay. When Prospect Park resolved their issues and revived One Life to Live a year later this led to a legal dispute over the use of the characters. The two sides were unable to come to an arrangement and the rights to the characters were lost while the actors remained under contract with the ABC/General Hospital. New roles were then created for them; Micheal Easton became Dr.Silas Clay, the brother of Stephen/Caleb, Kristen Alderson, became Lauren "Kiki" Jerome, Dr.Clays' daughter and Roger Howarth took over the role of Frank "Franco" Quartermain, previously played by James Franco.

My daughter would kill me for being here. She's right. You're dangerous. And I could end up getting killed in the crossfire.
At the very least, I'll probably end up with a broken heart. But, I can't seem to stop myself. Because I want something with you.
Look, if you're frightened, you should run. You should listen to your instincts.

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.
