General Hospital To Feature Storyline With U.S. Veteran In Upcoming Episodes As Part of ABC's "Home For The Holidays" Campaign!

General Hospital will take part in ABC’s Home for Holidays campaign kicking off today.  On GH, look for the soap to incorporate a storyline featuring a U.S. Veteran in its upcoming episodes!

But this initiative from ABC is far reaching throughout all of its programming as the holidays near.  ABC Primetime Series will feature veterans in cameo roles and/or as part of storylines in upcoming episodes of Modern Family, and Last Man Standing ,and The Neighbors is offering a veteran the opportunity to shadow one of their directors while Daytime’s The View and The Chew will lend their support through various themed episodes throughout the holiday season.  ABC News is joining the initiative across all of their programming throughout November and December.

As part of ABC’s annual Home for the Holidays campaign and in support of Disney’s company – wide “Heroes Work Here” initiative, which served as the foundation for a recent Veteran’s hiring event at Walt Disney World featuring a keynote address by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, ABC will honor our military veterans with several new elements this year by premiering five short films written, directed, and produced by U.S. Veterans highlighting the creative work from our military servicemen and women.

Five talented U.S. Veterans with aspirations to work in the entertainment industry were selected to create digital short films which will be thematically centered around U.S. Veterans coming home this holiday season.  As part of the initiative, these five U.S. Veteran storytellers and their short films will be mentored throughout the creative process by experienced creative teams from some of ABC’s most   successful series. The five short films will begin to debut on ABC.com today!

In addition, Grammy award winning group, Lady Antebellum will record a cover of Kenny Loggins “Celebrate Me Home” which will be the official anthem of ABC’s Home for the Holidays.

So, how will GH work a U.S Veteran into their storylines?  What do you think of ABC’s Home for the Holidays campaign?

I feel that any attempt by this show to do any type of public service is in poor taste at best and completely ludicrous at worst. This is a show that features a war veteran who now is a murderer for hire. Not because he has to…he wants to. He enjoys it…he needs it. He threatens to shove a man’s hand into a deep fryer and does it with a look of glee on his face. This is a show that glorifies violence of all kinds. The “heroes” on this show are thugs, mobsters and murderers. This is similar to when ABC marketed a Todd the Rapist Doll. Does anyone in charge watch these shows??

So true… and the Todd the Rapist Doll is quite a collectors item now.

This us where people in good mental separate the fiction from reality, the Vet being honored, given a day to act to dream, is reality 🙂

What is being done is for vets who want to be in the entertainment industry to work have a chance others can only dream of having…
A great opportunity for them.

Sabrina has a heart of gold, have her come upon a Vet, down on HER luck and help her find work at GH.

Huh….didn’t YR just have two episodes revolving around our vets. GH seems like they are playing catch up?

robert

Didn’t Y&R just do that. It sound like they are copying CBS daytime.

Mary SF

These things take time to plan so it is doubtful they copied them. It might have been CBS who caught wind of what ABC/D was planning months ago and they made sure they got a mini version out before ABC’s could air— who knows. Also, I am not American, but hasn’t this been a pet cause of the first lady for a while, perhaps she or her people contacted studios asking them to do something during November holiday season and both CBS and ABC took up the call. Whatever happened I think in this case even someone copied another no should mind.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
