The nurses ball was started in 1994 by the great Claire Labine. Is this really the best they could do? 2014 & 2015? Moronic!

LOL… right ? ALL soaps saw an uptick.. in ratings bonanza… and they go with this? b rated stuff. plus overkill on Sonny.. w/ all Carly ?

plain out dud

I do have my own wish list… like @Dan post… for whatever reason.. @ABC chooses not to retell past serial. I never watched General Hospital.. when the most talked about story BJ Heart

that would be FANtastic

the disgruntled fans who watch online,
that will not see those episodes
uummm maybe a million people..
all the online watchers can not see any
of the Friday episodes either.

I’m with you, Jimh. The earliest Nurses’s Balls were the best! The last several years, boring. I want to see the Nurse’s Ball episode with Monica, Alan and Kevin as babies, singing in high chairs, (don’t remember which year that was), but, it was a memorable scene. If 2014 and 2015 are all they show, I can see fans not tuning in. I miss the good ole days of great GH storylines. It’s gotten a little better, more recently, but still not up to par. Also, is anyone else getting tired of these recent flashbacks about Michael, Chase, Willow, Sasha… Read more »

Through June 12 indicates 3 weeks of all Nurses Ball episodes. Would Frank dare show episodes before he became EP? So far all the Friday repeats have been shows he’s overseen. The ABC/People special on soaps would be a great impetus to rerun a week of preparation for Luke & Laura’s wedding. At the end of the last “fresh” episode on May 21, it would be interesting to have some sort of visual effect of Port Charles shutting down with a “To Be Continued…” graphic. Not sure if a show named after a medical institution can entirely ignore a worldwide… Read more »

I agree with you, Steve, about Frank showing anything before his time with GH. Don’t think it will happen. Newer fans would really enjoy the earlier Nurse’s Ball episodes in the 90s. They were definitely worth watching.

And, also agree about wrapping up the storylines and then showing brand new episodes.

Hope springs eternal!

Apologies if my reply was confusing. I’m talking about the flashbacks during the new Monday-Thursday episodes, NOT the Friday repeats.

They could always do a Jump as Days did, with the time away dealing with the pandemic, resulting in any lost lives of anyone they’d like to get rid of. What a good excuse to clean and weed out. some of the characters not wanted or needed anymore. I can think of a few, but Iam sure they are on contract, and wouldn’t be agreeable to just being dumped.

will everyone return and look the same if and when the show restarts filming…hope nina finds out Nelle is her daughter before shows run out…Micheal having to marry willow is a lame plot device…you dont have to marry someone to win a custody battle…and it could easily be proven Willow and Micheal werent a couple…stupid silly plotting…why not just hire he as a Nanny…No..now Willow will show her true colors…doing it for herself just to be near the baby-lame!!!

Michael, Could you perhaps explain or shed some light on why GH and ABC won’t air any past episodes from before 2014? I read on another site, and I don’t know how true this is, that it has to do with the fees they would have to pay to air those old episodes, royalties to the actors that appeared on those shows, royalties for the music rights, that sort of thing, which would make it cost prohibitive to air. Again, not sure if there is any truth to that. Or is it possible that Frank Valentini is making the choice… Read more »

I don’t have any direct knowledge but it might be something as simple as the archiving wasn’t very well done back in the day. Maybe Frank chooses shows from his tenure because he archived them a certain way and knows how to find them. Right now, if people aren’t working, maybe there’s no one available to search through the older episodes. Just some ideas! Stay safe, everybody.

Steve

Interesting idea, but all episodes since the show went to one-hour in 1978 are saved. And key storylines (I.e. L&L’s wedding, BJ’s death) can easily be traced to air dates.

Much to ABC’s credit, nearly every episode is still available on YouTube.

As for paying royalties… Recently, they re-aired the 3-Carly/AJ’s death episode. The large amount of non-contract performers in that episode would hardly be different than some pre-2012.

I think Satan (below) might have it right… they can’t accommodate the advertisements they are contractually obligated to provide if the shows were longer then. And they certainly aren’t going to pay someone to go and try to edit them down. It has to be easier to stick with shows at the current length.

Satan

Well, aside from my previous comments about Valentini’s ego not allowing anything to be seen from before 2012, there’s also something else that happened to the show once he and his pal Ron took over. The show got shorter. Visibly so. There was about 38 minutes of actual episode per hour prior to February 2012. It’s now down to barely 35 minutes…. and given the artificial editing that has taken place during the pandemic to stretch out the number of episodes in the can, even half of that is flashbacks. Some of them from the same damned episode!! And even… Read more »

Dan, your so on it, I to think its odd that GH which has a super rich history is limiting itself by only showing repeats of shows from FV time there. Is the royalties for those shows that much? ABC owns its soaps/ or GH, unlike CBS or NBC, and on top of that their own by Disney, how cheap is Disney if they are putting restrictions on what is allowed to air? I just think its a shame that again GH has limit itself to just 2012 to present time. So yeah, Michael, can you investigate for us?

Yes, it’s odd. Both Robert and Anna are waxing poetic about Holly so you expect a flashback from those days.

Steve
Guest

ABC would have to pay Emma Samms whenever they show any flashbacks of Holly.

Because Robert doesn’t have a set of his own, there’s not a logical place for a still photo (which costs zero) to appear. Anna wouldn’t have one, and Felicia wouldn’t keep one at The Floating Rib.

Davy

I was thinking the same thing! They couldn’t even show a photo of Holly? More recent viewers haven’t a clue who she is. How are they supposed to care?

Well I have been so bored with gh lately….the flashbacks are endless and serve no purpose other than to stretch the show out till the 21st. I won’t be wasting my time watching repeat nurses ball episodes. They were barely watchable the first time.

I wish GH would show the Nurse’s Balls in order from the beginning. Why the 2014 & 15? Let’s see Robin Scorpio and Jason Morgan. Let’s see Alan Q and original Emily sing.

To those who were rejoicing over the orange one’s victory back in 2016? I do not want to be the one who told you so, but damn it, I told you so. We could not have asked for a worst president to “lead” us through this pandemic. I knew he would be an unmitigated disaster but never in my wildest nightmares did I imagine he would be this horrific.

And let the backlash (and accolades) begin… Harry, of course, you are absolutely correct. Yet there have been countless instances since that victory (and even during the preceding campaign; e.g., “grab ’em by the p…y”; mocking a disabled reporter, etc.) that would constitute “I told you so” moments. Every time he opens his mouth (or tweets), he makes matters worse. No empathy. No concern for the dead and ill. No plan. No regard for science or scientists. No consistency. No class. No intellect. No competency. No attention to detail. No moral compass whatsoever. Only a laser focus on getting reelected… Read more »

Harry,et al,
I have never felt so alone, untaken care of by a president who is supposed to lead and protect us, not one that I feel we need protection from
My one little consolation is that he is having that long swab stuck up his nose every day, if he indeed is truthful about his daily testing.
Maybe it will pull that little pea brain out one of those times.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
