So many great memories! Looking forward to the 50th anniversary. I know Cartini will do it justice. Unlike other regimes, they have embraced the heart of GH, the show’s unique history. Who is Kelly Monaco hugging in the promo – Michael Easton?

They shoulve played Think Of Laura when Luke was kissing Anna giving Luke the feeling of being watched and feeling a little bit of guilt. I have a feeling that come April GH is going to recieve some of its biggest ratings for its 50th. Thanks Frank and Ron. And thanks Micheal too.

Now my only problems with GH is why does everyone hang down at the wharf where there has been several murders and other bad things have happened. A teenaged Molly shouldnt have taken Sams baby down there. Dont that town have a park? How did Rafe know exactly where Molly lived? I dont recall her giving him her address. If she did how can she be so trusting with someone she just met when he is a murder suspect.( i know he didnt do it) Also why did they take the stabbed cop all the way up to the tenth floor of the hospital? Is that where their emergency room is located? Ours is on the ground floor. No wonder the cop died. Also dont the hospital have security cameras? They would record things like Maxi snooping around that dead cop.

Watched the Luke realizing Laura was in his presence quite a few times. I love how Tony Geary chances his tone of voice when he is talking to Lulu, Lucky or Laura. Been the hugest fan of Genie Francis’ and Tony Geary’s work for… forever.. basically since I was a child. I so can’t wait to see them sharing scenes again…. the best acting team the small screen EVER had!! Bring it on Ron and Frank…. we are so past ready!!

Hard to believe that almost 2 years ago abc announced the cancellation of AMC & OLTL. They said “genre was dead”. Even Oprah’s “if there was money to be made” speech added insult to injury. Look where we are now thanks to a collaboration of Cartini and the fans. The genre is not dead it was simply MISHANDLED! Happy 50th GH! And welcome back OLTL & AMC!

One more thing, i think there is a logical explaination for the vampire story. I believe that Caleb, Lucy and Alison spent time together in a mental hospital outside PC where the ladies witnessed Caleb do bizzare things like him biting a staff worker he attacked and Caleb, having mental problems, convinced fellow mental patients Lucy and Alison, who were fans of Dark Shadows, that he really is a vampire. At least its what i like to think. Caleb might really be a vampire and i say,“So what?” Strange things have happened on GH that werent normal like the freezing of GH, and Robins childhood visit by a space alien.

When I saw the show last night and saw Anna & Luke kissing my head went spinning around and around and I threw up green pea soup. Please make it stop “No Chemistry it is as bad as Eric Braeden & Sharon Case if that is possible.

The one sad thing about Lauras return is knowing her sister Amy(the late Shell Keppler) isnt there to greet her. I would loved those scenes.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Can’t wait to see what they have put together. I’m very excited and I’m sure it will be worth the wait. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

OK Luke needs a gigantic piece of crow to eat. I remember him telling Tracy he only loved her never anyone else..That’s when Luke was DEAD TO ME! I am so happy to see Laura return and her kids need her. She mentioned she saw Lucky,and soon she will go see her grandchildren. Nothing like Grandchildren.
%) years, OK frankenRon don’t blow it now. No vampires. I know you are trying to bring in the teens, twillight comes to mind,but I am sick of it already. I love Lucy,and Kevin. I want John to stay. Love the actor. Like JaSam.. never cared for her before.
The show is entertaining, and goes fast. I am looking forward to the show every day..Almost. Not when Sonny and carley are on. I also don’t want to see Konnie become a Sonny loving kool aid drinker. She is fine the way she is.
Its really a shame the OLTLers have to leave, keep McBain,give him a new name,and send the other two home. No loss. No hate but no loss.
I really shouldn’t complain because the show is better,and a lot of people who left,me for example, are returning. The bloody parts who needs it ?

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

GH Head Writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor Reveal More Details On Michael E. Knight’s New Soap Role

When daytime favorite Michael E. Knight debuts on General Hospital on September 30th, he will not be coming to Port Charles as his former All My Children alter-ego Tad Martin; but instead will be playing a different character.

EW.com has first look photo of Knight in his new role and spoke directly to General Hospital co-head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor for the scoop on the ever-popular Knight’s return to ABC.  On GH. Michael will indeed play a new role.

According to the scribes: “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.

Because ABC now has the rights back in their possession to use the characters from One Life to Live and All My Children, Van Etten expressed: “We have conversations when we have these actors come back about whether it’s more useful or not to resurrect their characters. “=We’ll continue to have these as the opportunity arises.”

So, what do you think Michael E. Knight’s role will be based on these tidbits from the GH scribe? Share your theories via the comment section below.
