TODAY: General Hospital Marks Its 55th Anniversary With Special Episode!

While GH officially turns 55-years-young on Sunday April 1st, it is serving up its special anniversary today for fans of the ABC daytime drama series. General Hospital continues to be the longest running soap currently on television.

As for what’s on tap in today’s episode look for: walks down memory lane, nostalgia, a return from the one and only Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) and some more surprises, and a song from Ned (Wally Kurth),

The episode will not only honor the rich history of the show, but also will move current story forward, much of which centers around an event that Sonny (Maurice Benard) has planned for this father, Mike (Max Gail) in hopes of helping his dad, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, to recall some important memories.

How will all play out? Stay tuned.

Now in the comment section below, send your congratulations to the cast, crew, creatives, and behind the scenes personnel for this incredible accomplishment of five and a half decades of soapy entertainment on General Hospital.

Nothing Frank does honors the “rich history” of GH. he has decimated the show, kicked Vets to the curb, even am icon like Genie. Almost all the male leads are gone and replaced by Frank’s hires. Howarth, Easton, DeVry, James Patrick Stuart, Billy Miller, Matt Cohen, Wes Ramsey, now whoever this Chase guy is… I mean seriously, it’s a joke already.

It isn’t GH, hasn’t been since Frank took over. I won’t be watching the anniversary show as I rarely watch these days anyway.

So thankful to the cast and crew for all the hours of entertainment, enlightenment and joy they have brought into my life since I started watching several years ago!

Best wishes for continued success! Onward and upward!

I stopped at ‘much of which centers around an event that Sonny’. I just can’t with this show. The moral center of the show, the lead, is now a mobster who killed AJ Quartermaine. What happened to the show being about a hospital. Back in it’s glory days, GH, centered around the hospital. Even in the hey days of Luke and Robert and all of their crazy adventures, Steve Hardy and everyone that worked there, were still present, a lot. And also, the fact that Genie Francis was shoved out the door, still stings. I will not be watching this mess, that was one a daily appointment. But for those of you that want the Sonny and Carly hour, congratulations. At least I can say I was a fan when it had high ratings.

Congrats to GH–and keep on going. Hope the episode is something special, although a focus on Sonny is not encouraging. Lucy Coe and Ned Quartermaine are always fun.

I hope this episodes focuses on the history of the show and the characters who helped make the show great and keep it on air for all these years! Anna, Jason, Elizabeth, Scotty, Lucy, Bobbie, Monica and Ned should all be front and center! I am sick of Frank Valentini only using/catering to “his people”! Especially the overrated Kelly Monaco and all of Frank’s many, many, way too many new hires! This episode should be for the long time viewers – the ones Frank usually ignores! I hope today will be good! Under Frank’s tenure we see too many stories that fail to deliver! I really miss Wendy Riche! Congratulations and thank you to the cast and crew! Wish today’s show could include Genie Francis, Tony Geary, Anna Lee, John Ingle, David Lewis, Jack Wagner, Brad Maule, Stuart Damon, Norma Connolly, Tristan Rogers, Jackie Zeman, Tyler Christopher, Jonathan Jackson, Emma Samms, Vanessa Marcil, Ingo Rademacher, Rena Sofer, Sean Kanan, Amber Tamblyn, Sharon Wyatt, John Reilly, Rachel Ames, John Beradino, Emily McLaughlin, Peter Hansen, Susan Brown, Denise Alexander, Chris Robinson and so many others who helped make the show what it is! The fans remember all these talented actors and actresses; we appreciate them and the stories they told! I hope this episode honors all the ones that came before!

General Hospital

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
