Not into them at all.
No build-up to their relationship,
much less a marriage! So nothing
invested.
But are they cute? Sure.

I am not against this pairing—just wished they took a bit more time to launched it, like they did when Traci developed a thing for the “pool boy” Brad— he just gradually wormed his way into the family— But I get soaps today either rushed through elements that should be slower and go a snail pace on elements that should be faster. Everyone needs a serious refresher course on proper pacing— but other than the rushed romance— this is your typical rich girl marries the boy from the wrong side of the tracks—- this will no doubt be one of many marriages to come for Summer– if the show lasted that long. Don’t hate it, but don’t love it— its just okay.

The Y&R writers have got to be kidding with this pairing — the wedding took longer than their entire on-screen “courtship.”

I think Austin is in Fenmore’s spot if he were around more.

I like this pairing. I was watching Y&R and trying to figure out what is not working. Some of it is the writing but a lot of the problem is chemistry. There has been so many changes in actors that the chemistry has been lost. The perfect example to me is Dylan and Avery. They say the words but the body movements and expressions are not working. There is just no chemistry there. Chemistry is starting to form between Jack and Kelly. Jill and Tristan (can’t remember his screen name) are really cute together. Austin and Summer are working for me. The new Billy is struggling a little trying to figure out his character. I hope the flow of actors in and out slows down soon.

How about the SIXTH thing I learned, who cares! They are being shoved down our throats because its summertime and we need teen stories! TEENS DONT WATCH SOAPS ANYMORE!

Two talented young actors with good chemistry. Y&R will screw up their characters as they have just about everyone on the show.

Summer is a prime example of hormone-induced stupidity. Estrogen is doing a Niagra Falls on her. Someone needs to put the brakes on this independent little drama queen and do it soon. Isn’t it about time for Phyllis to wake up and give her daughter something to think about?

I like this couple, as far as it being rushed , well I think that is the point. I think she will come to regret her decision about rushing into this.

Summer and Austin are a downer..
They are not hio and sex, they are not entertaining, they don’t do anything but bore me..

I don’t like them at all. Ever since we lost Michael Muhney as Adam I push mute when she comes on. Even before all the drama she is not paired well for Nick & Phyllis’s daughter. She can’t act and always looks like she’s pouting. Boring as hell !

Ellen DeGeneres Signs On To Continue Her Talk Show For Three More Years

After rumors were swirling that Ellen DeGeneres was considering moving on from her highly successful daytime talk show after 16 years, all of that was kiboshed, when earlier this week on Tuesday, Ellen announced herself that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would continue on for three more years through 2022.  DeGeneres inked a new deal to stay put.

In her video announcement to her studio and at-home audience, she expressed: “From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.”

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”
