If you had told me in early 2012 that one year later I would once again be relishing GH the way I did in the '70s and '80s, and for much of the '90s, I might have suggested that you were in need of a long rest.
General Hospital will mark its 50th anniversary in April -- a milestone that it almost fell short of making. How wonderful that it is doing so as the best drama on daytime television.
I began watching GH in 1978, shortly after fearless executive producer Gloria Monty had been brought on board to save the show from seemingly certain cancellation. Thirty-five years later GH is once again on life support -- and, once again, it may very well be terminated in a few months.
