Agree! Accents sound phony and are just annoying. Rama needs to go! I have watched OLTL for years but can see why they are struggling! They better get a better story line or they are history. Sad!!

I agree with Steve about Vimal’s wife. I don’t even know her name and i’ve been watching daily for months now. But she is a bad actress and her accent gets on my nerves as well. Let’s hope this new girl is not as bad!

yes that accent i hope it’s fake and not real

Having an accent does not make someone’s voice “silly” or “annoying”. It is called being different. Rama is an interesting character, she has just been written terribly. It is not Shenaz’s fault. She is an accomplished actress in her own right. Vimal is also an interesting character. Either way, neither get much story. I am sure that Vimal’s sister will get about 5 minutes a week of airtime. That is why these characters can never be developed. There is a strong possibility that OLTL needs to boost it’s cast up so thtat there are enough players for the switch to The Online Network. It appears that The Patels may be more prominent online than on our tv sets. I for one am happy about that. So much better than yet another bottle blonde that is the norm on certain other soaps. White people are actually only about 50% of the population of the United States, but you would never know it from watching television. I can also guarantee that a Phiadelphia suburb like Llanview is supposed to be, would not look as white as OLTL does. Not only would there be some Indians living there, but there would be more Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, Homosexuals, Atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, etc. The lack of diversity is one of the reasons that soap opera ratings have declined drastically over the years. 50% of population does not see themselves reflected on tv. So I think if you can spare the 5 minutes a week for the actress with the “silly” voice, you may find that she will become an internet phenomena and help OLTL become a success.

Hey Todd, I agree with you. OLTL does try to provide diversity, more than B&B, GH and DAYS. B&B takes place in Los Angeles, where there are many Latinos, African Americans and homosexuals, but you wouldn’t know it watching the show. Salem, where DOOL takes place only has one two hispanics and two african americans and the same goes for GH (Epiphany & Shawn). The world is made of many colors and we all want to see ourselves represented on screen. Maybe that is why cable and internet programs are succeeding, while the networks are failing.

I hope when OLTL moves to online, they hire good actors and fire their current director, because the actors tend to over- act at times (the newer actors).

Shenaz Treasurywala’s accent is REAL and I personally find it very very sexy. She’s also the only reason I even bothered to watch this soap opera nonsense.

Llanview has been home to a diverse populace …..
I like the Patel family I hope they stick around for the transition to online.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired.

Matt Cohen Exits General Hospital

Dr. Griffin Munro, the former priest, is departing General Hospital as actor Matt Cohen made the decision to wrap his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

Cohen told TV Insider on his decision, “I did three years at the show. It was a great time and I had great fun playing the character, but I’m a guy who gets uncomfortable when he gets comfortable. I need to give Griffin a little rest right now. I talked to Frank (Valentini, executive producer). We’re leaving it very open-ended.”

The actor is now also focusing on directing and his first short film Mama Bear has been getting a solid response at film festivals

As to if he would return to his role as Griffin ever again, Matt teased: “Maybe I’ll pop into GH every once in a while? That’ll be up to Frank and the writers as to what we do.”

Matt came on to General Hospital back in 2016 and viewers learned that he was the son of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and was put in the orbit and became dear friend of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Duke’s true love.  Later, Griffin became romantically involved with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and then her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Look for Cohen to exit this Friday on the March 22nd episode of GH.

So, sad to know Matt is leaving GH? Share your thoughts via the comment section below
