GH: Is GENERAL HOSPITAL Out Of Control? And Should Twitter Impact Your Enjoyment Of A Show?

GENERAL HOSPITAL has done many things right since executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati took over the reins of the show in early 2012. It can certainly be argued that they saved this long time daytime drama from cancellation. The show was dreary and boring and they quickly revitalized it.

Robin (Kimberly McCullough), slated to die for "real", was saved. Popular actors Finola Hughes, Lynn Herring, Robin Mattson, Kin Shriner, Kristina Wagner, and Tyler Christopher, among others, returned. The events leading up to the 2013 Nurses Ball were magical. I truly believe that Mr. Carlivati is a fan of the show and is trying hard to respect its history. He understands that fans want to see their favorite characters from the past.

DAYS: Is It Time For Daniel & Jennifer To Call It Quits For Good?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES is doing so many things well right now. I have already gone on record saying how lovely the WilSon Wedding was. Salem feels like a town that I want to visit. Every character on the show is connected to each other in some way. Their use of history has never been better.

In a recent scene, Julie (the divine Susan Seaforth Hayes) let Sami (Alison Sweeney) have it for not giving "poor Nick" a second chance, considering all of the times the Hortons and Bradys have forgiven Sami. This takes even on more meaning, because how supportive Julie was of Sami, during the Sami & Lucas days.

Hope (Kristian Alfonso) is front and center again and working incredibly well with Daniel Cosgrove as Aidan.

Fireworks will explode when Sami finally finds out about EJ's affair with Abby.

However, there is something that still isn't working for me. That would be Daniel and Jennifer.

"Today in Soap Opera History" is a collection of the most memorable, interesting and influential events in the history of scripted, serialized programs. From birthdays and anniversaries to scandals and controversies, every day this column celebrates the soap opera in American culture.

On this date in...

1966: The character of Katherine Corning aired for the final time on ANOTHER WORLD. Katherine, Missy Palmer's mother, was played by Ann Sheridan, who died after a battle with cancer nine months later at age 51.

1968: On DARK SHADOWS, Dr. Eric Lang (Addison Powell) told Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) that he could have the physical appearance of Jeff Clark (Roger Davis) and be cured of the curse.

Edna Doré Dead at 92

Character actor Edna Doré has died at age 92. She was best known for playing battle-axe Mo Butcher, mother of Mike Reid's character, Frank Butcher, in the BBC's long-running soap EASTENDERS.

In addition to appearing in EASTENEDERS between 1988 and 1990, Doré starred as a woman suffering from Alzheimer's disease in Mike Leigh's 1988 film High Hopes. Her performance earned her the award for Best Supporting Performance at the 1989 European Film Awards. At the ceremony in Paris, she was called to the stage as "Edna Door". As she left clutching her prize she muttered (all too audibly): "You'd think that at least in Paris they'd pronounce my bloody name right."
