In case you missed yesterday’s Knots Landing 35th reunion on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family, there were some very fun segments that any Knots afficanado will love!

For starters, hosts Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare welcomed the audience at home to the show with a salute to the opening theme , and its unmistakable cul-de-sac. with a special opening for this episode! (You can see it after the jump)

Later when series stars:  Michele Lee (Ex-Karen), Donna Mills (Ex-Abby), Joan Van Ark (Ex-Val), Ted Shackelford (Ex-Gary) and Kevin Dobson (Ex-Mac) sat down to reminisce, they got a very big surprise when none other than Alec Baldwin joined then via Skpye! “Knots” fans know that Alec played Valene’s brother, preacher Joshua Rush, for 40 episodes.  The show aired on CBS from 1979 to 1993.

Baldwin recalled, “I remember (cinematographer) Hugh Gagnier saying that the show takes 3 hours to shoot and it was 9 hours of makeup and mirrors!”  To which the ladies all chimed in as the phrase “mirrors down” was often uttered from the set, since the gals of “Knots” would primp so much before each scene.   Joan and Alec payed homage to their late on-screen mother, Julie Harris who played Lillimae Clements on the series and more in this cute segment.

Watch the fun opening to the Knots Landing 35th anniversary reunion, and the clip with Alec Baldwin crashing the “Knots” party in the best of ways!

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
