What is it going to have to take to get you to air new episodes of Criminal Minds and NCIS? Do I have to bake you cookies? Make you hot chocolate? I have to wait until next week you say? You're mean...

In other news, I heard that the powers that be over on General Hospital killed off Leyla. I'm guessing this was done to fulfill the commercial's promise that someone would die, but really? This death was so missable, it was a big who cares. At the same time I'm angered because I feel as if we barely got to know Leyla, like she just stepped onto the canvas. They used her to make Robin jealous, to hang out with Spinelli and then that was it. How lame. She had more potential then Nadine. As a longtime fan of comics, I get why they killed her though. Killing off characters and/or raping them is the new thing, its in, because they'd rather of shock value than a damn good story. But, if you're going to send a character to the chopping block, then you'd better make sure it a good choice. Because character deaths have more meaning if its a character the audience has invested in, that has had development and/or storylines that the audience has connected with. Remember when they killed off Superman and everyone shat in their pants? How about Captain America? Or more recently Batman (of which I am still mourning)

When Emily died it was tragic and it broke an era; no more four musketeers. When her father died it was heart breaking; I still miss Alan . No one will give as much care over Leyla. Poor choice. Though as a fan I'm glad it wasn't someone I cared more about. Send Spinelli, Carly or Sam to the chopping block and watch my head spin around and pea soup fly out, why don't you. Leyla lacked the screen time and the storylines to make her death anything more than a damn-that-sucks moment. Yes, you're supposed to chase your characters up trees and throw rocks at them, as it were, but make the chasing the and the rocks count, GH. Don't make me drop you, like I did AMC. *glares*

Oh, and DAYS, what's with firing Patch and Kayla? Are you going to start pawning furniture too, to the pay the bills? Just warn me first...
