General Hospital's new opening sequence revealed!

Today in celebration of the series 12,000 episode General Hospital will reveal its brand new opening sequence. It had been since August 2004 that a revised show open has been produced. For years, fans complained that the old sequence showed many “dead” characters and was so outdated. GH’s YouTube Channel gave viewers a sneak peek before today’s airshow, and here it is below. So what do you think of this new opening?  Is it a good revision or a bad one?  Not working for you, or do you love it?  Let us know!

I’m all for any daytime drama’s opening credits that include the name of the performer who plays the role. OK OLTL & AMC, its time to follow GH’s (& Y&R’s) example and update your opening credits also.

I love it! Mark, BB also showcases the actors’ names too. AMC and OLTL need to follow suit. DAYS will probably never go that far, that hourglass is the show’s star, lol.

I’m really disappointed with the new opening and would have gladly accepted 2 more years of the old one for a better one.
Forget the fact that the order continues to show what GH really cares about since that has been a given since at least the last opening.
-The editing is weird.
-Half the cast…I’ll just say their best looks were NOT captured, which is a shame because it’s a good looking cast.
-There is no continuity…some of the cast has REALLY close up face shots while the rest, for the most part, lucked out with more of a zoomed OUT profile.
-The CGI backgrounds are a nice attempt, but IMO fail, especially when many of them don’t make any sense at all.
The whole thing looks like it was just thrown together, and the only real plus is the added name/character name, which might as well have just been added to the old opening.

I agree Nelson Aspen a serous cheesy disappointment. Can’t believe I waited this long for that lame attempt. Whoopee they added character/actor names and updated pics. Some of the backgrounds make zero sense example Michael and Kristina and Spinelli.

Sometimes I forget how seriously creatively bankrupt GH has become. Nice job Jill Farren Phelps and Brian Frons you reminded me.

I’m not sure how I feel about the new opening. I think it really moves too fast because if you didn’t know the actors you have to really read fast to catch their names and the role they play. I do like the scenic views in the backround such as it is. But, they are trying to put too much in a short span of time. I did not see some of the actors that are prominent on the show and wonder how they determine who gets to be in the opening. What about Scott Reeves?……..

To piggy-backon what Christina said, did anyone notice how loooong the shots of Sonny, Jason, Carly and Sam where, while I could hardly get a look at Kristina and Michael. Oh, and did I miss Morgan? And Yes, where is Scott Reeves?

Doe, if you want to see an opening that goes by too fast, watch BB tomorrow. They just recently added a bunch of their newer contract players to the opening and it goes by like blinking an eye. It’s almost funny… compared to that one, this is a sedate, leisurely pace.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
