Let SCRUBS Get it On sign now

To Whom it May Concern:

Love in the Afternoon. lovely concept, no? One that millions of soap fans grew accustomed to, back in the day when soaps were rocking Daytime, bringing in ratings networks could be proud of. We hear all the time about how the genre is failing, and while no one really knows either way whats happening to soaps (Are they coming or going? Its all speculation.), there are indeed glaring examples of why that might be true. Why fans are losing interest. Perhaps the concept that once drew fans in has been lost. Well, at least on one soap in particular: General Hospital, aka General Mobspital.

Yes, some romance still remains. But its a shame when its taken a secondary role to that of violence, which is always present on this particular Daytime drama. The leading characters are either mobsters or are involved with mobsters in some way. People are dying left and right. And as sad as all of that is, it wouldnt even be as bad if there was actual balance at the backbone, the heart of the operation. So many people tape and fast forward through segment after segment, just to avoid what the show has become: a ghost of its former self. Why you might ask? Because women (the majority of your audience) dont want to see people getting shot and then getting away with it! Or children taking hits for their Mob King daddies only to be put in comas for the rest of their lives. Its not entertaining. Its predictable. Its cold, dark and dreary. Soaps arent supposed to be all about love and happiness, but it shouldnt be an afterthought either.

Which brings us to our main point of this letter: what happened to all the love scenes? The full, three to five minute long scenes that celebrated the very couples that make up the show, make viewers tune in? Especially for one couple in particular: Patrick and Robin Drake!

Patrick and Robin have been together (more or less) since December 2005. Their first (and only) love scene was their first time on May 29, 2006. It is now January 2009 and weve yet to get another love scene for this couple. A fade to black here and there? Sure. But that was back in the summer of 2008 - on Night Shift 2. What about GH? These are two young, beautiful people. Sexy, with smoking hot chemistry that most other couples cant and wont ever touch, because its so rare! So, what gives? Whats it going to take? Do they need to look good? Check. Do they need to be in love? Check. Do they need to be newlyweds? Check.

May 2009 will mark three years since their only love scene! On a soap opera! Something is just not right with that. Carly and Jax have been together just as long as Patrick and Robin and have had at least three love scenes, not counting fade to blacks. Its really quite sad and enough is enough. Now we have Robins PPD thats going to make her not want to be intimate with Patrick, her new husband, who she probably hasnt been with since October of last year (we wouldnt know, because the show doesnt even acknowledge that they have a sex life anymore). Theres no telling when the next opportunity will present itself, but we hope its worth the wait.

Patrick and Robin have been through so much together over the past three years. Theyve had their no strings sex phase (which even then amounted to the one and only love scene), they broke up and got back together., fell in love and admitted it to one another (with no love scene or implied love scene after being together almost an entire year), broke up and got back together some more, Robin got pregnant (again, just a kiss, no love scene or implied love scene), they got engaged (after a long struggle), had a baby and got married and NONE OF THOSE THINGS warranted a love scene? Its craziness. It makes no sense at all. Zero. Its time for another one. Or two. Or three.

Its a bit ironic that out of all the things out there, were formulating this petition for a love scene for a couple on a soap opera, but its happening. What else can we do? We just want to be heard. Soap fans like us want romance and love and intimate scenes between our favorite couples that all but set our television screens on fire because thats the appeal. What draws us in. Finding it, getting it back and keeping it is what in turn will keep us glued to our seats at the appropriate hour, every weekday. Bring back the romance! The sexiness! At least for Patrick and Robin Drake!!! After all, they are the best of the best, the most wonderfully spectacular couple out there today! Who wouldnt want to see them in a love scene on a regular basis? Theyre hot! Its really quite simple.
