GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Detective Sexy Pants Save Maxie From Dunkleman?

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

What a headline, eh?  So, on ABC’s General Hospital it has become apparent that Levi Dunkleman (Zachary Garred) is not on the up and up!  And from the looks of it he is setting up Nathan (AKA Detective Sexy Pants) to take the fall, making it look as if he is the one who turned Levi into the immigration authorities causing him to be deported back to Australia!

After Maxie (Kirsten Storms) threw Nathan (Ryan Paevey) out of her apartment (where he has been living) and now is promising to go back to Australia with Levi, can the detective get Maxie to see the error of her ways?  That he is the good guy and not duplicitous Levi?  Can Nathan win her heart, when it is oh-so-apparent, that these two are drawn to each other?

In a preview for this week’s upcoming episodes of GH,  Nathan talks with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD trying to go over the evidence to prove that Levi is the one who called the authorities, but in the end Nathan feels like they don’t have any solid proof!

Watch the clip after the jump and then weigh-in!  Are you now rooting for Nathan and Maxie to get-together as one of the shows next favorite couples?  Do you hope they find a way to get Levi out of Port Charles for good?

I agree with all of you Levi is a jerk I knew He was trouble from the moment he entered gh What really made me angry was him fooling maxie pretending to be Australian. I hope he gets killed so Maxie can finally be happy with Nathan the way it should be. How can Maxie not love Nathan after all the wonderful things he has done lying to the judge so she can get custody of her daughter. That is true love. If I were Maxie I would want to be with Nathan because he is special man.

I cant stand levi he is got to be the most aggravating character ever with his prissy actions and stupid outfits. He could be a new love for brad lol. I dont know why he gets so much air time its caused me not to watch as much.also since they put so much foundation makeup on him why cant they give him some eyelashes. he could pass as a jody foster drag queen haha!

LOL

OK JimH

you win again… outright hysterical

Levi has grown on me… because he’s an enervating oddity
Maxie chose him… for some reason… Nathan is obvious… drool some

but… it’s a quirky threesome that, as posted below… if the writers have it in them… to explore… this new trio…. GO FOR IT

three actors… who are on par… not overdoing it… overloading… one another… just their… to be

heck… if for nothing else… it gives us, the audience a chance… to see Nathan ACT… and surprise surprise… he emotes with Levi

so what if he connects

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

first: Levi…not Levy! ahem…

I agree Patrick. I’m loving the three of them…I think the exchanges between Levi and Nathan are quite comical.

And yes, Nathan’s quirky…but I’m not sure yet if that is truly his personality or part of his plan. Either way, I think he’s playing the part well…and if they decide to keep him, maybe even redeem him…could be fun. I think he’s good-looking and as usual; guess I’m a softie for Aussies…

ahah seriously?
”super couples” are rare, very rare and few..
And it take a 10 year run or so to even be in the category of a ”super couple” and then it could be ify ..

So answer; No ..

Johnny
Guest
Johnny

Not at all really. Most supercouples from the past were named that after a year or two….think back to the 80’s when the term was coined. Almost every couple on DAYS had supercouple status between 1984-1988. Another World had several. Santa Barbara had several and it wasn’t even on the air for 10 years. All it takes is writers who will go full tilt doing some super writing for couples and making the audience care. Alas…romance is all too rare on soaps these days. Most couples on GH today make me want to gag….Sonny and anyone…Carly and Franco…Julian and Alexis…etc.

This guy can never be part of a super couple because he just can’t act. The fact that he is referred to as “Sexy Pants” just amplifies the point that he is just there to be looked at. And it’s nothing personal and I really don’t want to be mean. From the interview I saw with him, RP seems like a very nice guy, but he is in over his head and as a viewer I expect to see quality acting on a show like GH.

For a guy that came to the show with very little acting experience, and has been given a lot of scenes right off the bat, I think Ryan Paevey has done a pretty good job overall. He’s not great by any means, but there’s definitely something there to work with. I mean, obviously, we know the main reason he was brought to the show. He has abs you can grate cheese on, which I think they must be contractually obligated to show at least 3 times per week, lol. When he first showed up, I wanted not to like him,… Read more »

Kristin Storms deserves better. She could ignite chemistry with a Chia Pet and clearly makes RP rise to the occasion (no word play intended).
As far as Levi is concerned, I feel sorry for the actor because clearly he is a walking plot device. You’re supposed to detest him and the more you do so, the better Robocop looks and hence, you will be rooting for Maxie and Robocop.

@GH50….While I can understand your views on RP’s shortcomings in the acting department, I honestly have seen a subtle improvement in his abilities. It really seems to depend upon with whom he is involved in his scenes. He does a better job with some characters than others….yes, he was extremely green when he started, but I do believe he is slowly but surely adjusting to the demands of the show, and I say this as one of those rare females who is not completely blinded by his looks. Yes, I can admit he is a handsome guy, but far from… Read more »

To have a supercouple the most important thing is two have two talented actors..Kristen is great but Ryan is nice to look at but he is like a pill..HARD to swallow..Sorry these two characters never will be a supercouple…Bring Johnny back and pair him with Maxie..That can be a super hot couple!!

Levi needs to go! Naxie/Mathan all the way! Nathan needs Dante’s help because he is too in love with Max(love that he calls her that) to gather the necessary evidence. The Immig guy was paid bt Levi, the call to Immig was probably only a few seconds, and they need to grab Levi’s phone to show he called the judge!!!

Maxi has been written dumbdown like Tracy…she most likely will elope with Levi(i think Levi is the son of Richard Simmons and that other clown that appeared for one episode on GH in the 1980s-Daffy Doodle, if any remember)…i want Levi and Rosalee to become a couple and depart for parts unknown…and please, in the meantime, keep Levi’s shirt on…im sick of gagging…lol

oh, it surprised me to no end… to see him in all his glory boxer briefs

What in the name of Sam Hill did Morgan do to deserve either Gross-alie or Sappy? I know he is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but good gravy the poor guy can certainly do better than either one of those she-meeeees. They are like the flip sides of the same coin (Evil/Evil and Goody/Goody…) and neither is good enough for Morgan! Better to put him back with Kiki….at least they have things in common and some basic chemistry!!!!

Never mind the shirt– tell him to keep his pants on– if I see him in his briefs one more time, with nothing left to the imagination, if you know what I mean, I might not just gag but lose my lunch— some men look really sexy in their underwear, but not this guy.

Poor guy. Anyone with the name ”Dunkleman” has to get some pity.. gotta love the humor in that name.
Anyways– of course Nathan will save Maxie and he then be her hero ..

I just hope they won’t be a couple..
couples are doomed for tragedy after the first kiss and worse of all are BORING.

It was pretty obvious Levi wasn’t on the up and up from Day 1. The character was clearly designed to annoy from the start in order to push Nathan and Maxie together. The problem for me is Maxie has been so dumbed down as a character and Nathan so undeveloped that I really can’t feel much spark from either of them as a couple. They’re OK…not in your face annoying like Levi but not particularly compelling either. They need to cut their losses with Levi sooner rather than later. The original plan seems to have been that he was actually… Read more »

@KM-Your first paragraph sums up my overrall view of this pairing. They are little more than “OK” and they are far from “compelling”, especially when this headwritter obviously telegraphed his intensions from the moment RP’s Nathan arrived at KiSt’s Maxie’s door as she was leaving for her “Eat, Pray, Whatever Else She Was Doing Tour”/maternity leave. Realistically, if RC really understood Maxie, she’d be running rings around both Nathan and Levi and would have already figured out Levi’s scam. As it is, she appears to be another stereotypical bubble head blonde when previously she’s been one of the sharpest knives… Read more »

Maxie met Levi at a very vunerable. Point in her in her life, she was unsure of herself trying to be a better person and extremly insecure. Levi swooped in and said he had all the new age answers and made her feel better. Its an abusive relationship

Maxi may not have been the smartest character on GH, but she certainly was never this dumb. It was so obvious who told the judge Nathan lied. I don’t even enjoy watching her anymore and she used to be one of my favorite characters. At this point I think Nathan is too good for her.

What a completely wasted opportunity!! The show had the perfect chance to tell a classic love triangle that could have had fans divided right down the middle. The guy who plays Levi is charismatic and quirky and can be funny. He could have played a really nice entertaining character but instead he is obnoxious, rude, emotionally abusive and just a moron. They are trying so hard to push and prop the cop that they are working overtime to make us hate Levi. I don’t get the show at all these days. What kind of a cop would hand over his… Read more »

Johhny, your points are spot on. The fact is that these writers really only know how to write black and white, good vs evil and do so to force you in one direction. Same happened with Britt and Sabrina. When they try to add a little gray and blur the lines, like with Dr.O, it comes off as totally schizo and not believable. The other problem is the constant dumbing down of characters to move along their thin/ dumb plots. Maxie is now a moron and your point about Nathan handing over the phone is well taken, but with these… Read more »

Quite some time’s past since these posts but I have to mention AJ vs. Alice. I was thinking the same thing…or a tad different. I can understand the love and concern for Alice; she’s been part of the Q’s forever. So it makes sense. But what I TOTALLY agree with and am beyond annoyed with is how little care was given when AJ was dying. Who showed up to visit him? Where were the tears for him?

First of all…I’ll repeat what I’ve said on other posts. I don’t think the actor portraying Levi is bad; matter of fact I think he’s good because he’s soooooo beyond annoying. I think he could be quite the looker himself; love his hair, his accent and I think he’s got a great body. Matter of fact…if he was cast as a good guy…or in a beach flick…he would be quite cute. As for Detective Sexy Pants…hahhahaha…he has to be one of THE most gorgeous men to ever grace the screen; daytime or otherwise. And I’ve said this before too but… Read more »

Levi has always been sketchy, and I think it speaks to Zachery Garred’s acting abilities that he’s made us hate the character so much. But yeah, Levi has to go, pronto!

Apparently I’m in the minority but I do like Maxi and Nathan and I think there is a lot of potential for them to mend each other.

That’s an intriguing theory, Harold! Never thought about the German translation for Levi’s surname….I merely thought it was for comic relief, as it had such a dorky connotation!!!! However, I still think if “Dunkelman” is linked to anyone it will be Jerry Jacks. But at this point, I really don’t much care anymore. This character is turning out to be such a dud that I am beginning to wonder if one day he will just up and disappear and we will never know who he really was. Wouldn’t surprise me!

My biggest complaint with Maxie is that she has totally abandoned her considerable fashion cred just to appease that Dork from Down Under!!!! KS always looked so phenomenal in her extensive wardrobe—even while extremely pregnant—so to have her return in those mumsy frocks and drab eco-garb was just such a disappointment. She needs an intervention…a “Come to Manolos Moment” to regain her “Maximista Fashionista” mojo. After that, her normal personality and mental capabilities will return as well….as she realizes that her most fabulous accessory is none other than the TopCop, Nathan, by her side!!!!

If they are going to keep Levi for anything other than as a recipient of viewer ire, then they really need to get him involved in a story with more substance than this silly immigration problem. Levi’s reveal to Maxie yesterday of why he cannot return to Australia was weak as water. Facing a prison sentence? Please. I wasn’t born yesterday and neither were the rest of the viewers.

I for one love Nathan! It’s true the actor had some things to learn but I think he’s coming along I have the most problems with Maxie. I agree with most people. She is not being smart about anything lately and it irritates me because she’s usually pretty smart. I get she’s vulnerable but geeze. I think the actor that plays leving needs the most work. As we know now she will snap out of it.

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Soap fans know these actors very well.  Kanan, Brown, Hennesy and Rogers have all, or are presently appearing, on General Hospital.  B&B fans recognize Torkilden, Horsford, Moss, and Schofield along with Kanan from their work on the CBS Daytime drama.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.

You can check out the full Studio City cast interview below.  Then let us know, have you checked out the series? What have been your favorite moments and performances in it? Let us know in the comment section.

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
