Ahh come on guys it’s Christmas time— what happen to peace on earth and good will toward men— couldn’t we have saved the mob wars until the new year. LOL.

Better yet, the GH fans were collectively very upset back in the day when Guza treid to copy The Sopranos. Fans welcomed Ron and Frank because they were going to leave the poor man’s Sopranos behind and get back to the heart of GH.
Now we are back to square one. And as bad as Guza could be, at least he finished the storyboard once the action started accelerating. Ron will leave a plot line right at the story’s peak, and come back to it in a few weeks. The man does not know how to multi task which is why so many say his story telling skills are choppy at best. Sometimes he hits it out of the ball park which makes it all the more appalling when he gets it so wrong.

GH has always brought action to the soap world. Luke and laura vs. cassidines. anna, robert,frisco, shawn constant wsb action. Holly was part of a crime family. Seriously guys thats why GH has stayed 50 years because it offers something for everyone. As long as it doesnt get stuck on one theme it will continue to please a broad audience and we’ll get to keep our soap.

But we already saw this again and again with Guza–only Guza did it better and trust me, I am no fan of the man’s.
Who thought this idiotic idea was a good one? It’s like they are trying to ruin GH and doing a damn good job of it.

Harry

Well there goes the “at-least-Ron is better than Bob Guza” defense. Between this and the firing of MM as Adam, I guess my soap watching days are coming to a close.

I think that was an absolutely action-packed, behind-the-scenes powerhouse of a clip!

With that said I’ve been wondering lately if I really appreciate “getting to know” the actors via Twitter, Facebook and interviews. I’m beginning to wonder if I really want to go behind-the-scenes…or if I’d rather just get so immersed ini the stories….the fictional world…that I don’t know what the actors are really like or how they shot a scene.

Yes, we have the ability to suspend our disbelief…but I also wonder if maybe it was better “back in the day” .. when actors had more of an air of mystery…

Well it’s the best of both worlds isn’t it.For the people who love the behind the scenes info and actor interviews,it’s great.For the people who like to stick to just the story,just don’t click on the links.
Everyone makes out.

A mob war shoot out on GH? What a novel idea!!! And so appropriately timed…right before Christmas. I think Jill Farren Phelps has been wearing a Frank Valentini mask and Bob Guza has been wearing a Ron Carlivati mask. How else to explain the mob rise?

Johnny
Johnny

I don’t know…I have never ever heard even one single fan of any soap clamor for MORE senseless violence…MORE shoot outs…MORE mob wars, MORE blood stains…more death. I just don’t get it. Back in the day we would have had Dr. Steve Hardy rounding up the kids for the Christmas story at this time. This is what we get instead. We had a decade plus of this crap already. Its not excitong…its now new…its not different…it is same old same old where this show is concerned.

Mob stories have been on tv soaps since the 1950s and especially on Edge Of Night(where it was better suited and entertaining) but its a little too much on GH…id be ok with t it wasnt so front and center and Shawn acting so desperate to kill Carlos…i have a feeling T.J. is going to get caught in the middle and shot…with all the violence in the news lately these tv shows need to cut back on violent storylines especially GH…Heathers stabbing i found a bit disturbing…where is the romance? ive watched soaps since the 1960s…there were more romantic moments and less violence…soaps can have some violence in their stories because some plots call for it but they dont have to be so graphic like GHs stabbing of Heather! Sonny and the Jeromes couldve simply been scheming business rivals instead of blood thirsty mob rivals…and like you i do miss Steve reading Christmas stories to the kids…we need more warm moments like that…i agree with you, Johnny!

Plus, Sonny has kept Carlos tied up for a long time…if Carlos hasnt had any potty breaks by now he is going to be in serious need of clean underwear…lol

I didn’t watch GH back in the days when it was mob wars all the time, but as a “newer” viewer (since ABC killed OLTL) I think the show has a good balance. Sonny is supposed to be this big-time crime lord. You just can’t neuter the guy and expect him to remain away from some mob action. GH isn’t bullets and guns every day of the week. We also get a lot of hospital action, love and intrigue. Are people maybe a little trigger happy with their own fears that GH will revert back to the guns without the roses days? I think they have to give Sonny his mob action stories in order to show the big threat that the Jerome family is to him and the rest of Port Charles. These characters are extremely interesting and the actors are brilliant. I totally support GH remaining focused on the hospital and romance vs. mob wars, but there has to be a balance or a transition to calmer times. From what I’ve read and seen, it seems like it was guns all the time to none and now the guns are back. Hopefully, this storyline will help transition Sonny into another story area where he can still be a force to be reckoned with without emasculating him. And I’m going to stop now, my thoughts are becoming too rambled. Via GH!

I love the Jeromes! Love Derek! Love Ava! Not a fan of Carlos or nuMorgan. Always love Sonny. His scenes with Spencer boxing last week were adorable and fun to watch. Love Maurice Benard. Miss Sonny and Brenda. Love, love, love them. Favorite supercouple of all time!

The clip is good,I must say….
But when is Julian gonna act like he’s a father and grandfather….

And Sonny well, don’t get me started oh him (oh boy!!!)

I wish all these resources were devoted to better writing, relationship development, character development. Most soap devotees are attracted to relationships and drama and some great seasonal vibes, not mob shoot-outs at Christmas. Who cares whether they are shot in some warehouse somewhere. Nix the boxing set while you are at it.

If you’re going to resurrect location shooting, why not take a happy couple, say Sam and Dr Clay, and send them to an exotic locale? Cliched? Of course, but better than mob wars.

GH is full of variety, something for everyone..
Many fans like the mob..

Some people like to watch Mary Poppins and some like to watch Breaking Bad..
I am happy to have prime time action and excitement~~!

and- Bob Guza could never do it like FV and RC, they will rock it !!

GH has many awesome stories, many.. some we cry, some are HOT, some mysterious, some are campy, some have humor, some have great love, and some are action filled 🙂 I like them all..

I am happy to see the action!!
FV and RC will do it well..

The cameramen/crew was huge!!!
producing scenes like prime-time was also exciting to watch all the professional work that was done to give us the upcoming scenes..

It felt akward…imo…when Julian was talking about his ‘facial surgery’ in front of Luke and especially Bobbi…but Jackie Z was looking good today!

rebecca1
rebecca1

agree. I think either her face fell back into place (somewhat) or her makeup should get an award of its own.

Shay
Shay

I vote on the side of makeup….someone took “Patrick’s” expert advice on the time-honored art of contouring!!!! Although there is only so much maquillage can do….what I simply do not understand about these women who ply their faces with such copious amounts of filler is that they could accomplish the same “pufferfishface” effect with a simple combination of carbs and sodium….the results look the same. Not flattering…at all.

Shay
Shay

Only if you define “good” as having cheeks twice their normal size….mercy! Sorry jimh, but sadly, JZ looked wince-inducing…truly not being mean, but she is very hard to watch, and cannot even speak properly due to all the face and lip injections she has had! The distraction totally ruined the mood that she and brother Luke were trying to evoke….someone needs to stage a plastic surgery intervention on her!

k/kay
k/kay

Shay I have to say I get such a kick out of your posts your sarcasm knows no bounds and I truly mean that as a compliment.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I still see some improvement…not 100%…but she looks a lot better than in previous episodes…change of subject: it was exciting to see our favorite mutter back! But it doesnt look like im getting my Santa Faison…lol

Shay
Shay

@k/kay….Thank you and I sincerely mean that, although sometimes I think that people take my honest musings for intentional sarcasm, and they truly are not intended that way! If they amuse, then I’m flattered and glad, but I generally do not aim to offend! On the other hand, there are occasions when the sarcastic quips are purely on purpose….mainly on one certain topic, and I know you know what I’m talking about, k/kay!!!! That being said, you come up with some pretty priceless observations yourselfl!!!!! Always enjoy your posts….. ; )

Shay
Shay

Oh yes, jimh, it was “wundervoll” to see our mad, malicious mutta, the delightfully deviant Dr. O again!….that loony lady may be down but she is certainly not out….just as conniving as ever! Rooting for her to triumph once again, and hoping that “Schatzi” can spring her for Christmas!!!! As for “Santa Faison,” I’m afraid that your holiday soap wishlist is going to be incomplete where he is concerned, as it seems he just may be colder than the “North Pole!” (Though I am not completely convinced he is really gone for good….) But as long as Liesl Obrecht remains in the Port Charles picture, then I will have a blissful yule and Happy New Year….wishing you the same!!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Happy holidays to you too…

Shay
Shay

P.S. The reason it is so disconcerting to watch JZ is that her cheeks look so over-inflated and heavy that I fear if she leans her head too far to the left or right she will tip over from the sheer imbalance….either that, or her neck will snap! And again, I am being completely serious….even if this remark does come off as flip and facetious! Whoever committed that grossly incompetent crime against her face should be sued for malpractice….I just pray for her sake the damage isn’t permanent!

I’m sorry but I am really disappointed in this storyline and I really don’t care how realistic they tried to make it. It’s Christmas time and we get mob wars and violence. I wanted to see a baby reunited with his parents on Christmas Day and the reading of the Christmas story by a Q ( maybe AJ) at General Hospital.

I get that some fans like the mob storylines and the violence but this is not the season for it.

Bah humbug!

Here’s hoping that Sonny, Sean, etc., die in a blaze of glory. Can’t stand Sonny for many reasons, including his brutality toward Carlos and AJ.

that was fun! thanks for sharing Michael! I love those behind the scenes deals. I have an old VHS tape of All My Children behind the scenes, it’s interesting (and now historical!) even if it wasn’t “my” soap of choice.

Passions Alum Brook Kerr Joins The Cast Of General Hospital

Casting news today has that none other than former Passions star, Brooke Kerr (Ex-Whitney Russell-Harris Crane) is set to debut in a new role on General Hospital.

According to EW.com, look for Kerr to make her first Port Charles appearance on the upcoming Thursday, March 5th installment.

Kerr will be playing a doctor, not much else is being shared as to what kind and who she may be involved with on the ABC daytime drama series.

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

Photo: ABC

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
