I agree. I am ready for real Luke & Tracy to deal with the fallout.

I’m with you, Lew S.! I absolutely love Tony Geary; but, I like him best when Luke is scheming, battling with the Q’s, and I always love his scenes with Laura Wright-as his niece “Caroline.” I’m not interested in “nuts” type storylines; I want to see friendships, hosptial romances, relationships, and somewhat believable drama. I don’t believe in or buy into Ron’s villains-they are too unbelievable, too cartonnish-not scary, at all. (Now, Ryan Chamberlain was frightening)!
What I do love is seeing the Quartermaine’s-even if in small doses. I have such fond memories of watching the Q’s battle and scheme in the Quartermaine living room. I hope that Jake remembers his past as Jason Quartermaine. I am liking Billy Miller. I think he is very talented. While resurrecting Jason, I hope that the writers resurrect the Quartermaines.

They have had plenty of time to write an incredible story for tonyG…. that’s what he wanted to begin with, also the reason he almost left last year…. I hope it will be twist after twist….

And I am with you, dmr. I too want to see that somewhat believable drama again in Port Charles. Son Ron C if you are reading this… maybe give us some balance?

I agree. And it is just me but does Jane Elliot seem to be screaming all her lines lately? I never bought them as a couple either.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Yeah, Jane screaming is just too much. Particularly when one compares it with the little falsetto voice she used all the time when she first played Tracy. In any event, if the Fluke story just turns into complete camp I think a lot more viewers will simply give up.

Ces
Ces

Oh, I’m so glad to hear that someone else agrees with me!! The Fluke story isn’t much fun when Tony Geary is out on leave. This whole story is pretty lame. I think Tony needs a new love interest and Tracy can scream elsewhere. Oh yes, she did speak much softer back in the day, didn’t she? I do recall!

Andrew

I kinda loved this storyline when it started but it’s kind of lost momentum. No one’s fault, it must have been challenging to maintain when you don’t know when your star will return. And the show has done a good job of filling in. But I’m ready for it to end and if anyone can juice it back up in what is hopefully the last chapter of the 2 year “kingpin of Port Charles” story, it’s Geary.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

If only more fans were as understanding as you. IIRC, Geary & the writers thought his recovery would be the same length as his previous breaks. So, they wrote him a story that could build to that point and include many PC characters. They’ve dealt very well with his unexpectedly prolonged absence IMO.

Nick D.

Very excited for this – love this story and they’ve done a good job of keeping it going while Geary has been off. Glad Tony’s feeling well enough to work – he has been missed.

It is a Damn shame that this show changed so much because the writers has dragged the stories out so bad it sucks .Today Ned was in a fist fight, when did Sonny kill Aj? Franco,all of it is terrible.The Best Actors in the world with the worst writers 🙁

k/kay

Oh geeze can we write a storyline so TG can get another emmy? Please put us all out of our misery go home to Amerstdam and stay! So overrated!

Elite Advisors

I am not sure how long you have been watching this show, but this actor is one of the most talented actors in daytime…if not the most talented. While ovr the years I have not always “liked” his character or his choices, certainly there is no question of his talent and ability.

Actors get bored and they get stale… he said he was tired of playing backburner with the same story over and over for decades! He deserves an opportunity to sink his teeth into a meaty story…. the man has EARNED it.

Lets just hope the writers are up to the task….would LOVE to see Robert back with Luke playing like they did in the 80’s ….with Tristens contract in question with the new writers, maybe he will be free to come back to GH!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Yes, GH needs Robert and so does Anna…let Lucy have her Duck…i mean Duke…lol

LOL, k/kay. AG may not be the most dynamic actor on GH these days…but he’s still one of the last remnants of its past. Nice to have some continuity…if only he’d revert back to his mischievous, snarky but lovable Luke…joined by some ol’ pals like Scorpio and Sean Donnelly. Sigh…you can’t go back home…. 😉

k/kay

Hey nothing against Geary just worn out of him winning an emmy every time he is nominated. I can think of at least three times when he did not have the best reel and even soap columnists who want to be honest would agree. Not everybody drinks the TG kool-aid that would be like me standing on a cliff and jumping just because the majority said jump.

Dan
Dan

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, although k/kay, unless you’re on the panel that votes for the Emmys, how are you aware of what the best nomination reels are in a given year? The soap media used to publish a written synopsis of the Emmy reels, but only in the past two years have we the fans actually gotten a chance to see the reels.

There may have been a year or two where TG won the award based on his name, but in my opinion, he was very deserving in the vast majority of the years that he won.

And unlike some other actors on other shows, he doesn’t submit his name for the Emmys every year whether he does quality work or not. The last time he won was in 2012, and in 2013 and 2014, he didn’t submit his name for consideration. To me, if an actor does good work, he or she deserves recognition, regardless of how many times they’ve won.

I respect him even more for having the class to step aside and let others have a chance on the years when he didn’t do Emmy quality work.

Looking forward to seeing Tony Geary back and raising hell on GH again, as only he can. Very intrigued to see what they have up their sleeve for the Fluke story, now that Jerry Jacks is back on the scene, and in cahoots with Helena Cassadine.

The show has been on fire the past few weeks. Michelle Stafford has been knocking it out of the park every day as Nina, loved her scenes with Donna Mills, the scenes with Franco and Heather at the prison were a riot, you have the Ava baby drama, all the planning for the big Halloween wedding. It’s setting up some major stuff for November sweeps!

I really am excited for the Fluke/Luke story to get ”revved;; up!!
It’s good how they kept the story on hold yet alive for so very long waiting for Tony to recover from his operation etc..
Tony is the best of talents, and it was worth the wait for him to return!!

Welcome back, Tony!!!

The Luke/Fluke story has been stuck in neutral for months. At least they can now shift it into another gear and get it moving.

Glad he is better…hope now the show will finally reveal who fluke is…to RC: the show is already a little ‘nuts’ and so are some of us fans waiting for the unmasking of Fluke…lol

He looks great and I hope that November and sweeps =daily drama with a resolution to the Fluke story line and a recast of James/Nathan. {Sorry, had to get that plug in!]

Jimmy

RE: recasting Nathan – YES! Thank you! Ryan Paevey is like a block of wood, he has gotten slightly better since he first came on the show but I would MUCH prefer another actor in the role, especially one that has to go up against the likes of Liesl, Madeline and Nina.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, Jimmy…you are breaking my poor heart! LOL. We have yet to see what Nathan has to offer as he takes his stance, lance in hand and runs these formidable women through….he will show his magnificence….!!!!! ….I thought I’d add a little drama there…LOL.

If he was acting with TJ he would be fine but those three actress’s you mentioned just blow him out of the water!

I love Ryan Peavey/Nathan. I known his acting needs work, but he seems like he has worked hard to improve his craft. I agree that he seems so sincere. It is endearing.

Patrick

I was sold on the wooden “nature” of said actor…. till I read @Becca and MB assessment… and it’s true

he does have a sincere quality in the eye

I too, think he’s “burgeoning” : ready

LOL

Ok… he’s easy on the eye(s)

i will say tho… as much as I think Nathan and Maxie are the nuCOUPLE and “dream” team…. a part of me thinks Kirsten deserves a better partner… as she’s so solid… without even trying…. how enigmatic can she get

it’s a lucky thing… Nathan is paired with the likes of Dr. O, madeleine, Nina… and Maxie to boot

heck… even I pause for his presence

Ugh…I know, I know, this is the beloved Luke, and I will get bashed…..I will take that chance. I recoiled each time he appeared…..I detest both Luke and Fluke….I shudder…yuck. I ask, why is he so popular with those rheumy, flat eyes? The sun ‘don’t’ shine in those orbs.

soapbaby
soapbaby

I couldn’t agree with you more! Luke Spence has been a waste of character for over over a decade save Genie Francis’ return as Laura in ’06. The character should be”put out to pasture.” Also, Tracy is no longer great when with Luke. Tracy is viable, fun and attractive but the Fluke s/l depends on her being beyond dumb and desperate. Now, Tracy is trading ELQ for Luke? After months of being duped and actually believing that Kiki Jerome (eww) was making sexual advances toward Luke?! (Double eww.) Jane Elliott and the audience deserves better! I wish Joe hadn’t been killed off after being made a rapist_ Joe and Tracy had great chemistry.

I think Tony Geary is a terribly overrated actor and has at least 3 undeserved Emmys (not that Emmys mean much…the great Beverlee McKinsey never received one at all.)

Timmm
Timmm

What has happened to the CeeCee I know and love! How dare you! Just kidding, it is your opinion. Sometimes fans get upset when he leaves for long periods of time. He earned it. He is old and is semi retired. This time it was his health or I think the Fluke story would have already wrapped. He has never been a heart throb and even he with his frizzy hair from the 70’s and 80’s admitted he could never have won the heart of the young and pretty Genie Francis in real life. I like Luke because he is connected to so many characters and he can really act. Him and Jonathan Jackson were pure magic together. Having said all this, I watch soaps for the stories and in those stories I hope that actors can act and make me believe what is written. Would you rather have an old bag of bones who can act his way into any Emmy conversation or have an actor with abs of steel and a magical smile such as James/Nathan who shouldnt even be acting in a high school play!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I think, Timmm, it is because I only know Mr, Geary as Fluke. I did not know him as Luke. Therefore , I have preconceived ideas. He is just creepy to me. It has nothing to do with his age.
I love John Aniston as Victor, for example. It’s just the Fluke character, I guess.
Perhaps as Luke springs back into his ‘real’ character , I may warm up to him….Lol….love you too, Timmm. Later.

CeeCee…girlfriend, you are not alone here…I am in full agreement with you about Luke/Fluke!!!!! H-o-n-e-y…I T-O-T-A-L-L-Y got over The Luke Mania YEARS AGO!!!!! And, besides, I’ve always been more of a Scott Baldwin fan than a Luke Spencer fan (lol). And…now…this Luke/Fluke stuff is for the birds!!!!! No Thank You. BTW, your ‘The sun ‘don’t’ shine in those orbs’ comment made me LMAO…GOOD ONE!!!!! And true.

Take care, CeeCee.

A-C-E-S!!!!!

CeeCee, you know that I feel this way about another actor on the show, ha-
Tony is considered daytime royalty, most-likely from the Luke and Laura fans. I wasn’t born yet to watch much of Luke and Laura. I’ve watched a little on YouTube. I’m a fickle Luke fan, myself. Love it when he is in scenes with Tracy-always comedic. Love how he bickers with his niece “Caroline” over most anything. I did not like a few years back-that he was thought of as an alcoholic that ran down Jake. Around that time, he looked worse for wear. The material was too dark. I can’t say that I completely disagree with your opinion. When Laura returned in Winter 2013-the magic was no longer there with this duo, IMO. Of course, it’s what, 30+ years later.

All you you great fans that have become my ‘soap friends’ have an advantage over me. I started watching GH when Kiki was Starr and she had just lost her baby. I wanted to hold on to OLTL and I followed John McBain, Starr and Todd to their new home of Port Charles.
I wish I were older than I am so that I could reminisce along with all of you. I enjoy reading all the comments every single one of you makes…I thank you !

I I recoiled at times too .. I love it!!!
For Tony to give us those eyes, ohh those eyes! is great talent..
I love Tony as Fuke and most of all Tony loves his Fluke character thats why he perfected the dude, it is fun for him, go figure..
I missed Fluke he has an eye way of creeping me and I like that LOL ..
I can’t wait for Fluke to be back on my screen.. He is like the cherry on top!
Tony is spectacular!!

I know, Su…he is a great actor, I can’t deny that……still has scary, obsidian eyes, though…I am watching EXTRA right now…GH is presently discussed and many of the actors are on…especially mouthwatering Ryan and William.
It seems that GH is the front runner right now. Carlivati warns us to buckle up…we’re in for the ride of our lives. Really? All I want for Halloween is for Carly and Sonny to get theirs….LOL….Later

geez! CeeCee : Nice Press, on GH

“…we’re in for the ride of our lives. ” “Really”

in hindsight… for all the clamoring of ones favorite soap…. I have to give prop to a poster who said…. best actors with aimless writing; he/she was referring to GH.. whilst I press DAYS

it’s all cyclical…. and it’s coming on to a sweeps month… so have at it

I adamantly soapbox… I still feast

LOL … Later

I agree that this story has been stretched to its limits. But I also understand that Mr. Geary’s health problems prolonged things. What are you going to do? You can’t blame anyone for that; you just have to be patient. I trust that when things get rolling again, the story will be very exciting. GH has such a wonderful way of playing beats, making us wait, picking it back up and then hitting it out of the park. I’m looking forward to seeing Mr. Geary return.

Nick D.

Love the way Ron plays the beats. You always know such and such story will pick back up and climax but in the meantime there’s other interesting stuff going on the front burner.

It is awesome how RC and team kept the Fluke story alive, waiting for Tony’s surgery and his recovery to continue on with the Anthony Geary/Fluke story, there are none better than the great Tony, well worth the wait.. ..
I’m excited for this story to continue!!!

Patrick
Patrick

“… I trust that when things get rolling again, the story will be very exciting. ”

this last story arc… for AG’ Luke and Fluke

clearly, was the one story I acknowledged AG character… so… I’m still looking forward to how this plays out

inasmuch as, we the audience, are asked to shelve and distend our belief in serial recipe…. ie: think Mob, espionage, corporate takeover…. out of my realm

I just wish for once that AG character Luke.. would deal with a relationship…. fans clamor for Laura… but that’s in the past… I absolutely, LOVED Luke with Skye…. that was the one burgeoning relationship.. that I, at last… accepted … Luke… that was a dream team recipe… that I’d feast

Tracy and Luke.. the actors… are at the top echelon of criterion of audience

the quips and spar at times run it’s course.. but they spool more goodies to let on how abundant they dig

MBmomof3

Meh. Glad he’s feeling better so he can wrap up this story and retire on a high note. I’ve been over Luke for years.

Patrick
Patrick

honestly… press be damned

It’s crossed my mind that this is AG’ Luke swan song

and it’s GOOD…. from where we all last left off

I cried… ???? over Luke ?

the grandson he’s never seen
his daughter gave birth
wanting Tracy to know… it’s not him
the living inside himself… not able

his immediate family…. he’s spitfire

he doesn’t care what all of Port Charles thinks… he want’s that close knit back

so… I’m with…. I think he’ll retire on a high note

janet

Personally I have shut the show off. off my tv and off my dvr. Luke is done stick a fork in him. Sonny, yuck! Stick three forks in him .here we go again. drag out he shot AJ in cold blood beginning for his life for nothing , nothing except for the fact that AJ won’t roll over he kept fighting for his son and this time he was winning. Now the end for me. Sonny will get away with another murder , he will be exonerated and someone else did it.. What about the fact he is plotting to kill two more people ? TIIC of this show are just re-roning the garbage. Luke is not Luke the mob rules Snarley is ???I don’t know, and the worse thing they make Sonny who can hardly mumble and remember his wo5rds and make a talented actor and make him a serial killer with a tumor? I can’t , I just can’t. I don’t and I won’t

CeeCee
CeeCee

Your reply, Janet? Well, it is PERFECT. Why couldn’t I say it like that?…stick a fork or three, but who’s counting…love it…so funny.

Patrick
Patrick

the thing that surprised me… was Ava telling Morgan and Kiki that Sonny shot AJ

where do they go from this?

how will Ava be exonerated for killing Connie

I just have to put out their… how much Maura West, Carly brings to the show… and how I’m just not that caught up in Sonny and Carly, and MIchael, and Kiki…. ’nuff on that

I don’t know how the GH writers will deal this

I just know… that Ava is a much more viable commodity to the GH canvas than Sonny

they can send Carly and Sonny off in to the sunset for all I mean

but… I thnk they’ll relegate Sonny and Carly to supporting and filler….

it’s time to move Franco… to Nina

phonda

How has the story been dragged on too long? Its cool to see a character being held hostage , in captivity etc for longer than a few days and not have them rescued immediately. Im anticipating Luke getting himself together and kicking major butt as he has always. I think the story really about to go into overdrive.

Jimmy
Jimmy

It’s been pretty rough having Tony off canvas because it’s forced the storyline to drag out, but recently it’s gotten very intriguing! Now that Jerry Jacks is in on it and working with Helena, this looks to be a very interesting November sweeps story. I’m really happy Tony is back and feeling well, and I’m really looking forward to the conclusion of this story, and to see who Fluke really is.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.
