General Hospital is a good time.. it is fun behind the screen and on it..
The actors of GH have a good time, I always felt that to be true..
The actors do not take it seriously, as is obvious, but yet there are fans who take GH way way way too seriously.. I never understood why some fans can’t have fun with it also ..
Nancy’s show will be watched by me 😉

It has nothing to do with “fans who take GH way way way too seriously”. Believe it or not GH is not every soap viewer’s cup of tea. If you like your soap stories campy, silly, sometimes dumb, but almost always entertaining then GH has plenty of them. I’m glad you enjoy that. I do sometimes. But some of us enjoy and prefer more realism in our soaps built around families and the various conflicts between them. We find that entertaining and a good time. Different strokes for different folks.

Nancy is very good at hosting. She needs to drop the comedians right now! They are not funny and overly annoying. Nancy has a sense of humor and can hold her own and doesnt need comic relief. It was great to see Sebastian on her show and I would have enjoyed her interviewing him and doing some behind the scenes stuff. The other two women stepped on his words and it was unwatchable!

OK : it is what it is

ep 1. was the funniest w/Jason Thompson. he looks so good… that’s out of the way. the crying on cue was funny… and the torso shots….. LOL…. liked JT humor about it all

ep 2. I loved the sax music playing while NLG and intern were making out

ep 3. I wasn’t watching GH when Alexis and Jerry Jax were an item… I would have LOVED this…. Alexis is a bona fide frigidaire…. Jerry Jax would be just the man to keep her busy

YOU KNOW : they showed one of the first scenes , in which these two first shared…. when she started on the show…. IE: the sexy shower scenes with Britta and Patrick proof positive that she is beautiful… the look in his eyes and body language response Britta has so many avenues layers and drive for the canvas as a whole i’ll throw this out their… the reason Nathan is floundering…. there are no scenes with Nina, Britta, Madeline, and nary to none with Leisl. to carry him…. oye! he’s drool to look at…. are Nathan and Maxie strongholding the… Read more »

Bullseye, Patrick. Is this what we will look at, day in day out? Bedroom scenes between Nathan and Maxi….they act like two thieves in the night, which I don’t mind, but they are as bland as polenta. I love looking at Nathan’s buff bod, just do not let all his posturing (investigating if there was any tampering involved with the election) be only to impress Maxi. Less action in bed and more in helping Anna. Also, how does Nikolas change his stroke mid-stream? Hmmmm. Is he also under Medusa’s (the Gorgoneion, Hellenic corpse) spell? So many new twists. I wish… Read more »

I don’t know, Patrick. As I’ve said previously I love Ryan Paevy…and I do find him believable in the role. He’s come a long way from his stilted delivery. As for he and Maxi, I do think they’ll eventually get them out of the bedroom but at this point I think it’s realistic…they’re new to each other, they waited a long time to be together…and I enjoy seeing the first throngs of infatuation and lust. I think they’re adorable together. I think as soon as they “simmer down” lol…Detective West will probably be involved in helping Anna unravel the corruption… Read more »

Nathan and Maxie, are no where near the bottom of the barrel think: Daniel and Nicole (Days) : ugh.. and double ugh… on snore Daniel… it least it’s not with triple ugh Jennifer… dang ! Michael and Kiki : LOL…. wow! and this is a real live couple the worst with absolutely no story : Abbs and Ben, DOOL. shes faster outa the golden circle take leave of her senses…. dullsville honorable mention : any one with Alexis p.s. : yeah, it’s the throngs of infatuation and lust. shoutout : where is Nina and Franco? shoutout: what on earth is… Read more »

I so agree, Patrick, with your description of all the couples you have mentioned. Daniel and Nicole are a real couple also….so, I do see the spark…not fully because I suspect they cannot display being in the throes of passion…LOL, it’s daytime. Ben and Abbi are really in outer space. There’s too much sexuality, and then there’s not enough. In this case, there’s not enough. Ugh, poor Ben….stuck with a rubber doll. Nathan is gorgeous, but he lacks sensuality…he simply is not sexy. I hate myself for saying it, I really do because I love him…but it is not happening… Read more »

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
