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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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..… Read more »

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
