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 Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
