My mom used to watch General Hospital a long time ago, in the Luke and Laura days. I started watching because of her, and their stories are threads of my own personal tapestry. The stories have changed, as have the characters, and I haven’t always liked the direction the showrunners have taken, but I will say this – General Hospital is a staple in daytime television, and will hopefully remain one for many years to come. The 50th Anniversary of the show is taking place this week, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying how wonderful it’s been seeing all the old characters back on the show. I’ve gotten teary an embarrassing amount of times. But I think the writers are doing a great job of honoring the show’s past while keeping their stories current. Well done.
Here’s a mash-up of the opening credits from the first years up until now. I have to say, my favorite was the Faces of the Heart opening by Dave Koz. If you’re a GH fan, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
