I Must Confess My Guilt:

I just can’t keep this a secret anymore. It’s true. I am “The Fan.”

You know……THE “Fan!”

As in: “FAN” February!

Yes. That’s me. I am the “Fan.”

I just feel really bad about it now. I didn’t know things would turn out this way. So many people have been hurt. I’ve been so blind. I must repent and come clean with all of you about my terrible deed. I must reveal “the letter” that started it all.

Here it is, in it’s entirety. I have posted this at the Palace, the Ranch and the Cottage. I hope you all can forgive me.

Dear Mr. Guza,

I have read that ABC is doing “Fan February” and will be filming suggestions from fans. I think that’s just a great idea and wanted to offer some suggestions of my own.

First, I just love what you’ve done with GH. You’ve really cleaned it up. Before you showed up, there was so much time spent on family and romance and intertwining storylines. I’m glad you’ve eliminated those things. They are such a waste of time. Also, I had gotten so sick of seeing the majority of the cast. Luckily, I’m not subjected to them much at all now. Good work! I’m glad you’ve realized that your audience is mostly dim-witted and has a lot of trouble following more than 6 characters at a time. I mean, let’s face it: if “Friends” had just one more character, we’d be lost! I’m glad you realize that and have adjusted the show accordingly.

Also, I am so happy to hear that Brian Frons is pushing for “young love” on your show. That’s all I’m interested in and I’m in your prime demographic (18 to 34). All my friends who like “old geezer love” are over 40 and don’t watch the show much anymore anyway because they are committed to some of our fine, local “institutions.” Well, my female friends are, anyway. The old friends I have who are free to watch, and who have way more money to spend on the products your sponsors advertise than I do, just don’t really know what they should want to see. I think you and Jill Farren Phelps know better, Mr. Guza. Also, I appreciate that your show is catering to people in my age group, even though most of us are so damn broke we don’t have two pennies to rub together. It warms my heart.

Now, on to my suggestion for Fan February:

You may not know this, but I’m GH’s “Number One Fan.” I really am, so what I say really means a lot and should carry a lot of weight.

For Fan February, I want to see more Sonny. I just love Sonny. Sonny, Sonny, Sonny! I know he’s on 5 days a week now, but I sure would like to see him on my television even more than that. Also, characters that support him (Jason, Carly, Courtney), I want to see more of them, too. If you could come up with a Fan February episode that revolved around Sonny, I think it would be a big hit. I realize you might have to show some of the dreaded cast, but I hope you just hold it to a few minutes, total.

Also, I think this would be a really great opportunity for you to let fans know what you really think about them. Give them the gift of Sonny!

Anyway, that’s what I, GH’s “Number One Fan,” think you should do.

I love you Bob Guza!

JenJen, “The Fan”


Jason and Courtney rock! (Maybe you could do a special “Courtney’s Diary” episode some time, too! That would be so keen! Golly!)


Well, there you have it: my shameful letter that caused this fiasco. Oh, why, oh, why did I have to reveal that I’m THE “Number One Fan?”

Now, I just feel like Number Two.

I apologize, fellow fans, for leading Mr. Guza astray. It wasn’t until I actually saw the episode that I realized my folly:

I should have demanded an all Jason/Courtney “Episode Of Love” instead.

Please forgive me.

click and be happy!
