I find it even more interesting that the GH writers directly take s/l ideas from the biggest MB/Sonny hater board ever: soapcentral.com! If you go there you’ll see that the same discussions on verbal abuse & etc…thus his likely hood to actually beat a woman were held weeks ago. :rolleyes: The posters frequently complain that their ideas were taken without due credit! Interesting that the mods for the SC board help those same posters target MB/Sonny fans, fans of all of his pairings (including Sexis) & even have them banned. I have the emails to prove it! Again, clearly GH never appeases haters when it comes to Luke, Jason or now even Johnny! I have long agreed that the reeee-writing for Sonny’s character has crossed the line, but now it’s to a point of being way beyond racially stereotypical or offensive!

I am please to see that the voting has elevated his status to #1 in terms of his acting! However, I feel that GH is working to appease the glass ceiling by not choosing to write well for MB, an actor who has contributed so much to soaps, and now Alexis! This is just a continuation of the industry’s disingenuous agreement with diversity! Clearly MB wouldn’t have been invited to read for a doctor, lawyer, husband/father or even cop on the show! So MB took what little they offered him & made the s/l so successful that they were able to use it to add/prop additional characters! The other actors (including T. Geary) credit MB with being the center or magnet for the show! So why then is the character of a…. veteran….award-winning actor being written so poorly in stark contrast to even the newcomers on this show? The later is familiar story with most successful minority artists/actors! It is no surprise that the wishes of Sonny or Alexis fans are the least considered by Abc/Disney or that we are the only groups asked to lower our expectations! In terms of diversity: a character that is written poorly is as much a step backward as the exclusion of diversity.

Thank you Michael for Dom and Julie’s interview. Dom is the best thing that’s happened to GH. He is truly an amazingly talented actor. I hope he wins an Emmy next year. He deserves it! He and Julie bring out the best in each other. Their chemistry is off the charts. I love my Lante. They’re the best couple on the show!

I couldn’t agree more. Dominic is a fantastic addition to a high profile Soap Opera and he has brought the right amount of drama, emotional turmoil, sexiness and humbleness to the show. I have never been more hooked to any TV character as I am with Dominic. I hope he is around for a long time and that Dom & Julie remain the steadfast couple I feel they should be!

Bravo GH writers and directors!!! Finally, a character with soul! Dante, played by Dominic Z. is a brilliant stroke of casting and writing. His chemistry with Lulu harkens back to the magic of Luke of Laura. What is most compelling about these two is that they are relatable, real. Uh-huh. We viewers finally can watch soap actors who we can relate to. Their on-screen circumstances are believable (for the most part). Lulu has a job that’s believable, so does Dante. She has inner turmoil that’s believable, having had a teen pregnancy. He is the son of a single mom…lots of good fodder that keeps them relevant. I hope that GH writers don’t mess up the magic now. The beauty of DAnte and Lulu is that they are more real than many Soap characters and their circumstances are ones we can identify with. Keep us watching by keeoping the plot realistic. Trash the Brooke Ashton interference. It’s an unnecessary layer that gets in the way.

These encore presentations will be called “Flashback Fridays,” and each episode will feature an introduction from a  General Hospital cast member.

To kick things off, this Friday, the series will air a repeat of last year’s 56th-anniversary episode, with an  intro by Laura Wright. GH fans will recall that episode centered around the reading of the late Gail Baldwin’s will.

According to The Wrap:  :At the time of the production break, the ABC soap had enough episodes pre-taped to carry originals into May.”

Tomorrow on April 1st, will also mark GH’s 57th anniversary.

So what do you think of the plan to stretch out original episodes bu adding in one encore a week; until GH can get back to producing more episodes? Comment below?

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH's Dr. Britt Westbourne

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?
