GREAT another new freakin character! WHY? AND its a new character connected to another NEWER character! You might as well just send Mac, Felicia, Monica, Tracy and Bobbi to the glue factory! What a waste! I wish those actors would go and work on another soap so I could enjoy them. Curtis, GIVE ME A BREAK!

I hear you, Timmm! Know what REALLY frosts me? The opening to the show and how there are now so many truly irrelevant characters featured….it used to be that most of those highlighted were true “stars”—if not downright icons—of GH or at least closely related to one of the major core families of Port Charles! In the past, to rate in the opening was not only an honor, but a real achievement….now it’s just an exercise in presenting the banal and mundane! Talk about cringeworthy!

Shay, I rarely watch the opening anymore but I do remember on Y&R, the A team usually got the MWF openings and then the supporting cast would get T&T openings. And that was fine because Y&R supporting cast was Paul, Lauren, Michael, ect. Today on GH, the have a solid A cast loaded with talent but the supporting actors either suck or are stuck with bad characters.

Your last sentence says it all, Timmm! No further embellishment required….

Not much to look forward too after the Jason reveal except him finding out Liz keeping his true identity a secret…the newbie is shady-no secret there and im not too much into Hayden…where are the heroes of this show-they seemed to go out with the phone booth…it seems there needs to be a new shady character just to move the plot…just do it with the characters you have…some improvement in GH writing but not too much-the show still feels messy….a lot of room for improvement…not giving up yet.

Hayden was seen today with shawn, i rather he come back for good, but i’m intrigue.

Most likely this is the ‘I might know someone’ Shaun recommended Hayden
call for assistance…in retrieving the bullet from the garage where she was shot.
No one knows him, so he can’t be connected to Hayden in any way….

I have no insider knowledge of this, but there HAS to be some truth to the persistent story that writers get paid royalties for every new character they create. Otherwise, why would Ron Carlivati have completely gutted the show and flooded it with newbies? And why attach a new character to a new character, Hayden, whom we know nothing about, other than that she is a horny, greedy, opportunistic sociopath?

They do get money for characters they create.

Here, here, Dylan! “Newbie Fever” is a true pox on the community of Port Charles…I wish Robin could come up with a cure for this persistent condition that so ails the GH canvas!!

Good looking guy—he’ll pair off well with Hayden—and probably a number of other cast members too.

Good grief. Enough with the hashtags.

I’m not on twitter but just wondering is it really necessary to put # in front of every word in your tweet? Seems excessive to me but #what the hell do I know #LOL

Don’t recall him on Days or Y&R so lets hope his stint on GH is more memorable.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
