It’s a real shame that GH never knew how to use Carlos properly. JVP is a fantastic actor and could hold his own against heavy hitters like Maura West and Will DeVry, and he even showed his softer side in scenes with Sabrina. But they took Carlos down a reprehensible path and made him nothing more than a lackey for the Jeromes. When he killed Duke, there was no turning back for the character. And let’s not even talk about his twin, Joe, because that story was a colossal failure and a totally missed opportunity for the show. He and… Read more »

” I ” read threads… and sometimes back off… go in to chill mode wait things out.. to see fan recall. you are the reason why : “dynamo” YES ! this is the best response to Jeffrey Vincent Parise… I loved him from the get go GOD… out of the box.. I’m glad he has the last laugh… even tho.. should GH , right the wrong (s) with this show.. i’d save a place for Dr. Joe. he’s a magnetic person. from comedic to dramatic to skank to lovelorn… all the beats hit. whenever a character melds with the whole… Read more »

I said he was good–an actor that had the ability to demonstrate vulnerability; thus the audience could identify with him. Give him some good writing/good roles and he’ll become a “classic” also. LOL

Good for Parise! His talent is far too striking not to be displayed and enjoyed!

Yes, James, I agree. Jeffrey deserves this and so much more. Too bad GH decided to ‘ditch’ him….much prefer him to Sonny, Julian, and so msny others ehom I consider “head-scratchers”.
At least, Carlos never bored me. He was what he was, and never pretended to be anything else….
…….not like some others: Sonny, for instance. I was soooo taken aback today when Sonny dared to approach Monica, offering his help. He? AJ murderer??

Hi Celia: Thanks for the reply and further comments, Celia! I agree with you; I also always found Carlos enjoyable. The scene you mentioned of Sonny approaching Monica repulses me. Had I seen it, I might have thrown up or, at the very least, threw something at the TV. (There would have been “throwing” in one sense or another!) As I might have explained before, I gave up on GH in 2005 (started in 1969) but then came back from time to time, particularly if I heard of Laura’s return, 50th anniversary, etc. So I did get to see much… Read more »

Hey, James,
No need to apologize, my dear friend. Not to me. I feel the same way. You have not said anything untoward which I have not said, myself, before.
It just befuddles me as to why the Sonny character has to be “consecrated” with such fervor….non-stop. What’s the deal?

Thank you, my Dear Kindred Spirit, Celia! You’re absolutely right!

Awesome! This guy has so much talent and charisma! I’m happy for his new opportunity. Wishing him well, the show casting department found a real treasure in JVP.

what a delight to agree and it’s a big thing… you know… when the writing just has no flavor.. and i’m sensitive enough to wait things out. or rally onward to TPTB to take something from the fan (s) when all else fails.. it’s the performers that hold me. all these actors… decade after decade.. they swing through that studio lot. and , in this current time.. their are very few… help me on this… as far as newbies who take hold. I’ll go right back to the firing of Robert Palmer Watkins, ex-Dillon Quartermaine they never really wrote a… Read more »

I never understood why Carlos couldn’t be redeemed like Sonny or, to a lesser degree, Julian. JVP is a wonderful actor and we could have used Carlos’ wit and charisma.

Carlos should never be redeemed, then he’d no longer be Carlos.
Julian was redeemed and it destroyed the dominant Julian character..
Sonny was sni-redeemed and he was no longer Sonny he was lackluster fluffy.
Redeeming is not a good thing….
most bad characters are bad and good, highlight one side but no dumbass redeeming, that crap is lethal to most characters..

Carlos, I can let go

it’s that Dr. Joe.. that I didn’t get enough

his swag we only saw glimpse of

all the possibilities with JVP – kaput

At the risk of repeating myself, su (but I must), Julius was not redeemed (could never be); he was “redeemed” instead. You get my drift??
Bless your heart–once again!

Very happy for him but he was a real gem at GH. They wasted his talent. I loved his chops when he had to be in character.

Great show. Started watching it seasons ago but didn’t keep up…figured I would binge watch all the seasons I missed OnDemand. Unfortunately they’re not running the past seasons for free so it would be hundreds to catch up now. Maybe down the road they’ll free it up. I’m sure JVP will be fantastic! Successful show for him to land!

It is “Supernatural”…maybe he’ll be “Sheriff Carlos…”

Patrick

I think he’s going to be…. “sheriff ”

which really makes me that much more giddy for… when talent is let go so carelessly

you know.. that right back in your face loss… @Shelley and Frank.

it’s the same , for Michael Muhney… I hope he’s a regular cast member on “the Good Doctor” thank you ABC.. the camera SO LOVES HiM… so dont’all his fans

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
