How do you follow up the 52nd anniversary episode of General Hospital?  By going live, of course!  In exciting news, the ABC episode is going old school when it airs two live episodes on May 15th and May 18th.  This harkens back not only to the days when soaps were live, but when One Life to Live had their live week several years ago, when anything can happen!

Executive producer Frank Valentini revealed to PEOPLE: “Taking such an iconic show as General Hospital live for two days is both exhilarating and risky. I am enormously proud of our cast, crew and staff for all their tireless dedication and hard work that will be leading up to this daytime television event. It’s live television and absolutely anything can happen, but that is what’s fun about this and we’re absolutely up to the challenge.”

Soaps in the old days were all live, until 1975 when every daytime drama began to tape the episodes and bank them ahead.  During the live GH episodes fan will be encouraged to join in on the GH live conversation by using #GHlive on Twitter.

What do you think about the news of GH Live? Who do you hope is in the episodes?

Very exciting stuff here. Good for GH and ABC. Very good for us in the audience.

Im hoping Monica, Felicia, Mac, and a few other invisibles but i wont hold by breath——look forward to the two ‘live’ episodes after viewing so many ‘dead’ ones…lol

Jeez, what ever happened to Monica Q? She’s been absent since Xmas and the Krampus episode. I just don’t get it.

Nice to see GH’s efforts to show respect for the history of the show and soap industry. They obviously love their audience and viewers. Too bad the other shows seem to have contempt for their viewers.

I wonder who will be in the live episodes. Probably Roger since he did it before on OLTL and he’s able to remember his lines and improvise. Laura always puts in a great performance and knows her lines. I don’t know if Ian will still be around then but he has a lot of theater experience.

The majority of GH actors came from the stage. Jane Elliott & Zeman may have done GH live. I want to see Maura West, Michael Easton, Spinelli, & Billy Miller. I’m afraid for Ryan Paevey & Kelly Monaco.

What about Michael and Sappy? My word, today’s scene with the two of them was absolutely excruciating! Watching paint dry would have been more entertaining! Whoever thought that putting these two clueless halfwits in a storyline together has mush for brains! Neither one is worth the time of day separately, but tolerating the both of them at once is beyond endurance…..all they did was trade perplexed looks whilst straining to spit out (remember?) their lines. Neither has the chops for live TV. (The Sapster doesn’t even have them for taped segments….) Ditto for that insufferable nuKiki and her moronic sidekick Morgan….their little high school revenge games remind me of a poor imitation of “Gossip Girl” takedowns sans the buzzing of IM’s, cool fashions and queenly presence of Blair Waldorf! (But having said that, I hope their scheme works, because I do so want Avery out of the arms of that psycho nurse and revenge bent “big brother!”)

I sincerely hope that Laura returns, Luke needs her and their love story is not over. Please!!!!

I think it would be GROSSLY unfair to the story of Tracy and Luke to pair Luke and Laura back again. They (Luke and Laura) have gone down in soap history..nothing can take away “their time.” But I think it’s been proven over and over again how very much Tracy and Luke love each other, how much of a stepmom Tracy’s been to Lulu and the bond they’ve formed…and the unbelievable lengths Tracy went to save her husband first from his polonium poisoning and currently from himself during this Fluke crisis. There would be no sense whatsoever for Luke to abandon Tracy.

Tracy’s love for Luke…and I believe Luke’s for Tracy, is as strong if not stronger than Luke and Laura’s. Luke and Laura are nostalgic, they’re classic, they’re a part of their youth and a part of the older viewer’s history…they remain a strong connection for the older generation viewer. But in actuality, if one can have two true loves, Tracy was Luke’s second chance. And she’s in his present.

Im the older generation and i did like Luke and Laura back in the day but ive moved on and rather see Luke and Tracy together…

Rebecca, especially after this story arc, I agree with you, but at the same time, I do think Laura should be on the show, and somehow in Luke’s orbit and living a life in Port Charles. There are just some characters who only make sense to live “at home”, and it’s just glaring to me and doesn’t make sense for her character to live so far away from two of her three children, and to miss all the goings-on in their lives… for what? More treatment for a catatonia that she’s been free of for something like 6 or 7 years now? I don’t even remember what cockamamie excuse was given for her blink-and-you-missed-it exit and the one-episode collapse of her marriage to Scotty, but it doesn’t justify her absence when Lulu’s been through so much with her child, husband and father, and Nikolas’s son has just been through a traumatic fire and scarring. Where would Laura legitimately be other than HOME?

I don’t personally want Laura back for Luke, but I want her back for the integrity of the Laura character and I think her presence would just naturally complicate the Luke/Tracy story, it wouldn’t have to end it or replace it. Besides, it would also help the idea that the Luke of old (that Laura loved) is still somewhat alive inside the current more jaded version.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I agree with you, too, davidevsnsmith. I think it would be great if she came back, but as we said, not to Luke. I’m not sure, though, where I see her fitting in at this point. I love the relationship between Tracy and Lulu, as well as Olivia and Lulu. I don’t see how they could explain her long absence…especially through so many crises. I would have liked her to have stayed with Scotty; he’s always loved her. That would have kept her in town, tie in to their history…and lol…put her in Franco’s orb, too. Who knows? Her maternal prowess might have worked its magic on him…might have made an interesting, touching story,,,

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

I too loved L&L. But, their love story is done. Thursday’s episode finally made a great case of why Tracy is good for Luke at this stage in his life. L&L will always have Beecher’s Corners, the Ice Princess island, & their two kids. But, other than their wedding, Port Charles was not a happy place for them. They were always better on the road.

Harry

I don’t want a Luke and Laura reunion but since this whole Luke reveal is predicated on figuring out exactly who Luke Spencer is and what motivates him, I think Laura should come back because she is an integral part of who he is now.
You cannot escape the past as it is enmeshed in the present. Laura is a very important part of his past.
That said, I don’t want them dusting off Laura just to be Luke’s prop only to put her back on the shelf again. Genie Frances has been treated shabbily and while she is too gracious and classy to admit it, I think it’s clear she has been hurt by it.
If she ever does come back the story needs to be about Laura, not Luke. It’s her story I am interested in, not Luke’s anymore. Her story is unfinished.
Laura, Genie Frances deserves better than to be treated like a planet which orbits around this sun called Luke. She certainly deserves a better romantic partner because frankly, I think she’s too good for him.

I would love to see Lucy running around (maybe in her underwear), on the live shows – would love to see the gang, too. Kevin, Scotty, Bobbie, Mac, Felicia. Some actors on the show like Lynn can definitely deliver a live presentation.

Live From Los Angeles its General Hospital, with your guest….. Genie Francis,Jonathan Jackson, Stehen Nichols, Vanesa Marcill…….hey is this during the nurses ball? because then, musical guess should be..Rick Springfileld, Jack Wagner, Ricky Martin, and John Stamos……

Oh boy, if Maurice Benard is going to try to act live I will have to watch this!

Josh

Me too, since Maurice is one of the best actors in daytime. So it will be a pleasure to watch him, Tony Geary, and all the other excellent actors on GH do their work in a live setting.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I’m not sure but I think jon boy was being sarcastic…

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

jonboy, I get you… And, of course, they’ll use their “marquee actor” for this experiment. In the minds of the GH powers that be, Benard is the franchise. Sadly, it’s been that way for close to 20 years. Surely, they know what a polarizing character Sonny is. And yet they stubbornly refuse to change course.

jonboy
jonboy

Not sarcastic, Rebecca, realistic. Don’t be surprised if Benard passes on embarrassing himself on live TV.

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…don’t get me wrong (or whatever), Brother…I absolutely agree with what you’re saying here. But, to me, it disturbingly goes deeper than that. My point: I think that Maurice Benard’s character of Sonny Corinthos is a FOUL AND EVEN MORE FRIGHTENING FRANCHISE!!!!! To me, THAT’S N-O-T ENTERTAINMENT!!!!! Nope. James…I (for one) look forward to the day when TPTB of GH FINALLY come to their senses and RETIRES ‘The Sonny Corinthos Franchise’…FOR GOOD!!!!!!!!!!

James…as always, PEACE to you, Brother!!!!!

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Jaybird369, thanks for the backup! I just hope to see it in my lifetime…

jaybird369

James…you’re welcome, bro!!!!! Something else: Dude…I will N-E-V-E-R get/understand the so-called appeal (or whatever) of GH’S Sonny…who is nothing but an arrogant, lying, selfish, smug and two-faced DIRTBAG/SCUMBAG!!!!! Bottom Line Here: I don’t find (and I will never find) Sonny’s so-called appeal to be romantic!!!!! Nope. To me, Sonny will ALWAYS BE BEYOND REPULSIVE!!!!!!! Beyond sad.

James…take care, Brother. Peace.

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Jay, you’re so right. I mentioned that Sonny is a polarizing character, but why this character has fans at all is a huge mystery to me. Your description of his character is completely accurate. Since day 1, I have disliked the character, and I have resented his constant frontburner status, to the detriment of other beloved vets/characters.

The actor would probably not do well in a live setting.

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…dude…the character of Sonny Corinthos L-I-V-E????? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! James…forgive me, bro…but I just had to laugh. And, Uh-Oh…here I go again…HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Anyway, the last thing that I wanna watch is SONNY LIVE!!!!! No Thank You. Don’t care. Next…

James…take care, Brother. Peace.

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…I forgot to tell you this earlier: Dude…your ‘marquee actor’ comment made me TOTALLY LMAO!!!!! A-n-d…I think that the description (or whatever) is totally accurate. Yep.

See ya’!!!!!

Maurice live would be rather like Seinfeld’s Kramer.
“These….um…..(mumble, mumble, mumble) pretzels……uh, uh, uh, (mumble, mumble, mumble) are making me….ahhhhhhh! (grabbing head) THIRSTY!”

k/kay

People you do know that Maurice is bi-polar in real life the fact he has had a career in acting is wonderful you might just want to cut the guy just a little bit of slack! Plus you will look far and wide to find a nicer individual in Daytime!

k/kay
k/kay

I may not be a fan of his character but he is probably one of the most sincere individuals you will ever meet. Be Kind ok!!!

LOL to you all! hahhaha…;)

Great, Harry! But you left off the ear touch.

jonboy
jonboy

I get that he’s bipolar. Does that give him a free pass on acting? No. Half the times he struggles he even remember the names of the characters and then looks like he’s frustrated and pissed off at himself. He might be a great person; he’s not a great actor.

k/kay
k/kay

@jonboy Never said he was a great actor but they are in short supply over there as far as I am concerned they have a lot of overacting. I figure he has a lot of company! I miss Stuart Damon/Alan and Monica what I would give to see a good old souse fight between those two!

Joe

Hopefully Luke, Tracy, Bobby, Scotty, Anna, Sonny, Carly, And Lucy at the very least.

Will the episodes be live for everyone,or just the markets that show GH at 3pm ET?

The Eastern time zone some affiliates air it at 2pm and others at 3pm so I would imagine the live broadcast will be the ones air it at 2pm EST.

Took more time to find John on youtube. Saw a short interview with him where he expressed wanting to be considered a good actor beyond his looks. Seemed a nice guy. But what a cautionary tale about how his life ended.

Rose
Rose

I guess I’m one of the few who doesn’t mind Ryan. His style is suited to the low-key, hard working, loyal cop he plays. And he’s not too bad to look at either. Can’t all be method-type actors.

Timmm
Timmm

I kid about him a lot but he is probably a good guy. The role was too big for him being green and all. He’ll be okay.

rebecca1

Oh, I agree, Rose! Love Ryan…think his natural delivery and his expressive (stunning) face, whether intentional or not, emanates sincerity.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

He reminds me of the late John Erik Hexum…slight resembalance, similiar voice and same acting style…i dont know if you recall that actor but he stared in Voyagers in the early 80s and on the short lived Cover Up with Jennifer O’neil—he accidentally killed himself with a stage prop gun i believe…google him and take a look at his pictures—i think he and Ryan do resemble each other!!!

CeeCee

One of the ew? Oh, LOL, Rose….every female fan LOVES Ryan. What’s there not to love?……my Zorro!

rebecca1

hey jimh! I never heard of John Erik Hexum…looked him up. Gorgeous guy…such a tragic accident…waste of a life. Shame… His mannerisms sort of remind me of Ryan, but I actually think he resembles a young John York. Mac was stunning in his “yute.” 😉

dmr

I think there are worse actors/actresses than Ryan Peavey. I think he’s grown into his role; but, I understand where you are coming from.. I would have said the same about Kristen Alderson-ugh.

Aden
Aden

Actually Kristen was just a young child 13 years ago when OLTL did their live shows and she was flawless in them. It is a shame that so many viewers can not separate bad writing and acting. Kiki was never a well thought out or planned character…but Kristen did her very best to give her some sort of a throughline. I am glad she left…and I am sure so is she. She is much better than the writing on GH allowed her to prove.

Karen Murpy

YEAH …AGREE TOTALLY… We wait months for the “truth” to finally be revealed and Obama ruins it all ! And the other networks (CBS, NBC, FOX and others DO NOT COVER Obama’s crap ! ) Air it on the evening news . And if one really wants to see Obama’s crap then turn to a CNN network. They cover that crap (Obama’s press conferences) !! Obama repeats everything he has said & tne “sums it all up” all over again about 3 more times. Then commentators like George Stephanopoulis rehashes Obama’s crap with 2 or 3 other commentators afterwards.

Harry

Well, to be fair, it’s not the president’s fault that the networks choose to air all of his press conferences. We could hire Dr Evil to interrupt one of the president’s press conferences to announce one of his dastardly plans in order to get even.

Timmm

It will be the start of sweeps so look for a “Live” story arc. Maybe Tony Geary’s goodbye? I will say this though, they have to showcase their strong players in these live episodes so it will be Sonny, Jake, Carly, Hayden, Luke, Tracy, Ned, Franco, Nina, Sam, Ric, Anna and maybe this will be Duke’s death?

Karen Murpy
Karen Murpy

YEAH, I will look forward to that VERY MUCH !! IF ONLY, we can keep President Obama from making his speeches. HE ALWAYS seems to interrupt G.H. (at 2 PM) to make all of his decisions, meetings and so forth !. He did that yesterday (Thursday) and it was at the high points of the show…like when Luke was talking about accidentally killing his mother & then killing his father and then Obama interrupts & just at the very end we see his sister, Patricia die! Her “daughter” Valerie discovers she’s not breathing Every time Obama has a news conference or anything…he ALWAYS seems to do so during G.H. I watch G.H. on ABC…none of the other networks (like NBC, CBS, FOX) air these speeches of his. ABC must be the ONLY ONE !! Then afterwards. George Stephanopoulis has to repeat everything with two or three other people (commentators) ! Will look FWD to May 15 & 16…Just keep Obama off the air !!!

Oh. so that is his nasty little secret. (HA-HA) !! They took OLTL off so now he usurps G.H. at every single opportunity !! He used to speak while The View was on but The View, these days, needs to be interrupted…The View is not what it used to be !

I hope if actors make mistakes, producers will let them improvise. I think it will be a success, the actors will practice their lines and scene untill the big day so it won’t be a problem and back in the days the shows were not recorded, they were presented live and some show were taped in front of the audience.

I don’t know…it’s interesting but it kinda breaks the fourth wall for me…

Satan

How can a Devil say this politely………

For live shows to work, the story line had better be centered around GH vets who were there before February 2012. Because a lot of the folks hired since then really don’t measure up in terms of pure acting ability.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.
