Today is the day that the multi-talented Alison Sweeney’s directorial debut on General Hospital will be seen by the viewers of the ABC soap opera!  Sweeney ( who is still currently airing on DAYS in front of the camera as Sami) directed scenes in this Friday’s episode ofGH!

And in a new feature about her time in Port Charles behind the lens in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, she reveals she will be back for more!

Alison commented: “I’m looking forward to my next opportunity. Frank (Valenini) invited me back.  I’m very excited to come back again. It’s a very different schedule coming in once every two months to direct.

It’s fun for me and exactly what I want, the opportunity to do something different, something great, on a way less committed time schedule.”  Sweeney also revealed to SOD she is in talks to also direct at Days of our Lives.

Meanwhile yesterday, General Hospital’s head writer Ron Carlivati sent out a tweet to the fans of the series which stated, “Fair warning: Tomorrow’s episode of General Hospital is going to be EPIC. #GH

Excited to watch Alison’s directorial debut?  What do you think will go happen on today’s GH that could be “epic”?  Comment below!

Epic…if anything exciting happens that’ll be EPIC…does Nathan and Dante rescue Maxi and Lulu…that could have some excitement or do we waite for Fluke’s October return if A.G. returns at all…my interest in GH and Days isnt there like it was and im going to try to continue to watch and support both at least until Days 50th next year…so if things at both shows dont improve by the end of 2015 i will be done with these two shows once and for all…they do help take my mind off my personal health issues but when both shows start to… Read more »

Well, the Lucas/Brad/Felix triangle played out a little better today than the Scott/Bobbi/Lucy triangle…however, its still a filler plot that dragged out Levi plotline…and yes its a soap and i know it does play as if in real time…Milo and Ephinany could add much humor to the show as a couple if done right but they’ll probably be yet another filler plot and rarely seen like Max and Diane!…PLOT PREDICTION: Now that Nina knows Sonny plans to snuff out Ava, me thinks Nina will try to kill Ava herself and frame Sonny but Nina mistakes a blonde Carly for Ava… Read more »

jimh(leave it to beaver), I’m sorry to read of your health problems. As a lifelong soapfan myself, I totally get what you’re saying. But, selfishly, I hope you don’t give up on the soaps because I would really miss your witty, insightful posts.

Sending good thoughts your way for healthy, soap-filled days ahead. Peace.

I am not giving up just yet…i just felt the last few days of soap watching just wasnt too great i.m.o., and was disappointed in some storylines that i had higher expectations for…plus some filler plots that just drags out other stories can be annoying but im trying not to let that bug me…i do not and i repeat do not mention my current health issues for any kind of sympathy like some other commenters think i do…i occasionally mention it because sometimes it intefers with my writing and causes some memory lapses…so sometimes i make mistakes…also watching soaps have… Read more »

Anyone who reads GH blogs on this site knows you’re not interested because lately all your comments have been complaints. A lot of negative comments but yet you seem to tune in every day. Maybe you should just keep quite for awhile and your attitude and outlook towards the show will change. Try to look for the positive man instead of critiquing the hell out of it.

Harry
Guest
Harry

But see, Michael? Jim usually is the one trying to think of something positive to say about GH. The very fact that he is complaining should mean something to you. Telling him to keep quiet for the sake of collective perception sounds rather desperate. Not only that, it seems that you might think that Jim has the power to sway other viewers with his opinion. In other words, you gave him an off handed compliment. It also makes me wonder who the heck you are.

I’d like to know why anyone posting on this site thinks it is appropriate to personally attack another poster. This forum is for opinions and discussion. If you all love the show so much than write about that. But it’s hard to isn’t it? So what you do is attack someone who intelligently points out the shows flaws. I post on this site and I can’t remember the last time I had something positive to say. And it makes perfect sense that I can’t, because I find the writing and production to be of extremely poor quality through and through,… Read more »

Michael, Lisa and David–OH my! It might interest you three (thought I suspect that you may be one person) to know that Jim is one of the most optimistic GH fans. Sure, he complains from time to time but that only serves to show that he is a bit of a realist. In fact, Jim has often, in his good natured and witty way, come along to jolt me out of my own negative thinking when it comes to GH. You attacking one of the biggest GH supporters in such a nasty way is really unwarranted. Thank you GH50 for… Read more »

I never attacked anyone. Sayint let the door hit you on the way out last time I checked was not a personal attack. The point is GH50 and jimh you both should have quit watching a long time. You hate the show so much yet all you do is complain about it. As I have said before though if you didn’t watch you wouldn’t be able to come on here and complain. ABC is very happy with GH as well its producer/writer. That won’t be changing. Yet people like you continue to watch and complain for over 2 years now.… Read more »

GH50, my issue with you isn’t what you post, because you certainly have the right to post your opinions, just like anyone else. I would never question or doubt that. My issue is that you come off with this attitude like you think your opinions are the gospel passed down from the Lord Almighty himself. Speaking for myself, you rub me the wrong way with the way you condescendingly talk down to people that don’t share the same views as you, like you’re somehow smarter than everyone else in the room.

Dan, I couldn’t even get through reading your whole post and if you happen to think that is condescending than so be it this time. The reason for that is because you are absolutely off base. I post about the show. They are obviously my opinions. If they sound like the gospel to you it might be because there is so much truth to them. If they anger you or anyone else, it could be that you are more than just a fan of the show. I am critical of the show, not other posters. I rarely, if ever, engage… Read more »

First off to Harry I only post as me. The moderators of this site I am sure can verify that. I don’t think anyone was attacking anyone. The point that I saw everyone making is there is a constant theme of jimh and even GH50 of constantly complaining about GH. My simple point was why watch. It has become so bad but yet for over a year at least Ive seen nothing but complaints from jimh. My opinion is he shouldn’t watch. If people disagree witht that its their right to do so. But it is also my right to… Read more »

Good Lord, David! I looked up the word loquacious in the dictionary and it read, ‘See David.” Really, brevity is the soul of wit.

However, I will say this–you are just plain wrong when you claim that commentators start to blindly engage in insulting behavior when another commentator says something positive about GH. That is simply not true. In fact, it is the other way around– the folks who have dared find fault with… Read more »

I lit a candle and said a prayer for you today at mass—it sounds like you are dealing with a lot in your life right now and I know from experience how overwhelming it can be at times. I too had my bouts with depression, so I completely understand how depression alters perceptions– saps energy and makes dealing with everyday life seem like such an effort, so if you throw in a real crisis such health issues etc, then it is really easy to start drowning in that sea of darkness depression can throw over our lives. So I hope… Read more »

Love AS – but if RC thinks something is epic that probably means I won’t like it.

HMMM “EPIC!!!” as a writer I would think Ron Carlivati would be able to use the appropriate word to describe an episode.. It was a good episode today.. but in no way I would call it “epic”.. I do like the spoilers and the teasing, but I will definitely think again before I get conned into his tweeting games… Not COOL RON!!!

I can’t be certain, but I know there where I live a couple of weeks ago GH was interrupted so I think the shows out of sync with what they were originally filmed to be on– will wait to see if Monday’s show, which would have been Fridays, to see what they might be referring to.

Keep in mind due to a preemption a couple weeks ago they are still running a day behind so the episode that aired on Friday was actually a Thursday episode.

Regarding RC’s tweet, Friday’s episode could be described as entertaining, but I wouldn’t say it was “EPIC” by any stretch of the imagination. IMO, Thursday’s episode was more exciting and ended with GH’s cliffhanger for the week.

I thought the episode was fun – with multiple teases between characters & winking at the histories of Sonny & the Cassadines. But, “epic” – no. I laughed & smiled a lot, especially when Carly called out Sonny using his dimples; when Britt nailed the Cassadine history of “keeping it in the family” (& Nikolas had to admit truth); & when Felix did his impressions of Milo & Epiphany. But, I wasn’t holding my breath as I sat on the edge of my seat. In American culture, the most “epic” daytime soap episodes are probably Luke & Laura’s wedding, Reva… Read more »

LOL, didn’t consider the episode epic at all. Maybe there was a preemption that caused the episodes to run off schedule, like maybe he meant Monday’s episode? That said, I do enjoy Franco/Nina, I enjoyed Lucas/Brad (played like a very real interaction, despite the talk of Brad’s role in the baby stealing, etc.), but I don’t care for the Sonny/Carly retread, or Epiphany/Milo. I don’t see Epiphany/Milo going anywhere worthwhile. Great that Epiphany will get laid, great that Milo is actually on screen, but it was played for so many laughs (with the Felix misunderstanding) but it wasn’t really funny.… Read more »

Wow, your comment was epically long, lol , but guess what I agree with everything you said.

* not a fan of Sam and Jason or Sam being describe as the love of his life I’m more of a Liz and Jason pairing especially if billy miller takes over the role they would be hot together, an although I stRted liking Liz with Nikolai they r taking to long with that n I’m beginning to find prince nick boring and sometime full of himself.

Also Aria if there is a slight chance that Jason does return and paired with Liz, maybe the seemed to be forgotten Ric Lansing(i know he is in witness protection but is he or isnt he gone from the show for good…will he return…i thought he would for Molly after the car accident or when her home got bombed) will reenter the picture and complicate the situation…just a thought!!!

I like the idea of Milo and Epiphany . I don’t believe that it’s being played for fun. That’s an insult to both characters; however, I will say that I hope the characters are given a serious romance. Also, I never liked the mob dominance at GH; especially, when Sonny was allowed to torment A.J. and take his son. I stopped watching GH for about 3 years because of that ; the writers gave the Qs no power on the show. RC did the same thing when Sonny was allowed to point a gun at AJ as he cowered and… Read more »

While I think the idea of Milo and Epiphany is cute…I have a feeling we won’t be seeing much of either one on the show. Both have been relegated to occasional appearances, so if they even remain on the show…and don’t ride off into the sunset ala Spinelli and Ellie…I suspect much of their budding romance will be off screen. And talk about diversified taste! From Lulu to Epiphany…Milo certainly doesn’t have a type!

Shay

Tell me about it!!! Although I don’t necessarily buy into Milo’s sudden “epiphany” regarding Nurse Johnson, I’ll admit it certainly was a “thinking outside the box” idea. I do applaud the notion of this “take-charge” nurse finally receiving some well-deserved male attention! But what’s next? Morgan courting Alice?….It would be nice to see Ms. Gunderson be the next lady to nab a boyfriend! (And far better for Sonny’s boy than hanging out with that repulsive “Grossalie!”)

I HATE “Grossaliie!” I do however think she’s a good actress. But I truly detest her character; have no desire to see her with Morgan…whom I love…and I’m wondering if she’s going to wind up being someone’s child too! She seems to have it out for Silas…why? Morgan and Alice? Shudders…but funny! I’m afraid our dear Alice is doomed to be celibate…unless they fix her up with the now invisible Alfred. Wait, is Alfred still Nic’s guy?

Roger does revenge and vulnerability very well, and I think he’s getting to use that talent in this more recently evolved personality. Yeah Nina’s insane, but not without reason.

@Shay…LOL! Progress will be made when you start softening your attitude toward Sabrina. If Carly can like Franco, and Michael and Morgan can get past their rivalry and betrayal, if Sam and Elizabeth can put aside their Jason issues…if Mac could finally come to like our dearly departed Spinelli…it is up to you dear soap bud to open up your soapy heart to the lovely, goodhearted nurse. Then, and only then, will you find room enough in your ticker to vehemently despise another too good to be true (but is) soapstress.

Hah! Sorry, so NOT gonna happen, rebecca1!!!! To be completely honest, I have never “vehemently despised” another “soapstress” like the one currently the topic of our discussion. I’ve had some who were minor (even major ) annoyances and a few who were quite disliked, but I’ve not before experienced such an immense and complete antipathy toward a character as I have with this one. It was instinctual, not premeditated…just a natural, instantaneous reaction, so I rolled with it.
