Sadly it won’t help with Frons running the s/l’s!! Probably Sweeney also not sure if Phelps is a huge KeMo fan. Give us back GH!!!

Hiring David Kreizman should be #2 on the top ten list that your show will be cancelled.

Both of his previous shows have been cancelled. Not a good thing for GH. At least he is not the head writer. What is going on with the soap world?

In my opinion, this is one of the MAJOR things that is wrong with daytime television….the different shows recycle these hack-job writers. Bad writers hopping from one show to the next, does not help out the soap genre. How about you search for some fresh new talent? Instead hiring someone who has put the last two shows he’s worked on in the ground. The problem with daytime is not the actors, directors, various crew members……it’s the writers. If you don’t have interesting stories to tell, you won’t attract the audiences.

Were I so lucky! I cannot imagine if I failed at my job successively that I would have yet another opportunity to do the same work. My comment may not be totally fair, but this writer seems to have a reputation for not delivering the goods. The evidence is low ratings, the inability to create strong stories to reverse that trend (or at least please the fans of the particular shows or genre as a whole) and ultimately, the cancelled programs. This is disappointing news for GENERAL HOSPITAL fans and for those who anticipate a return to Port Charles glory… Read more »

This is the ‘take’ on most boards.
Sad.
Like GH isn’t in a terrible way enough right now.

So disapointed with the ‘New GH’ right now.
Not only the same storylines recylcing, I see changes in our favorite characters personality.
What is with that??

What is with the ‘holes’ in all these story’s??
This show will never make it past 9/2012 at this rate. Will PP even want it??

Kreizman is a good writer. Networks failing GL, ATWT, and AMC were out of his control. He wrote some magical episodes like the Irna Phillips episode on GL. Jonathan and Tammy were probably the last soap supercouple. His tenure on ATWT was fairly well regarded — he introduced Reid Oliver, who quickly became more popular than Noah as a boyfriend fro Luke. AMC under Kreizman/Swajeski was fine, just a little boring. The Castillos were interesting additions and the core characters all acted true to character.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
