Curtis is totally wasted with Jorden, as a couple, they could bore the hair off of a statue.

Finn and Anna suck– fluttering Anna and lovesick Finn are quite empty.
Finn and Alexis were/are way more vibrant and interesting.

Poor Michael no matter who they put him with he is always ehhh.

Valentin is a wussy.. the Devil Incarnate is a lovesick puppy and he brings whimpy shame to the Cassidines.

Franco has lost his sharp edge being paired with mama Liz.

and- Griff, every time he’s upset with Ava his face looks like he’s painfully constipated.

Sam and Jason are a fail, nuff said.

GH needs to dump its stale boring couples and start over, with new ideas, new writers.
Bottom line; GH couples are gawdawful terrible.

(whew! that felt good! ahaaa! let er rip! 🙂

The only ‘villain’, the bad guy that GH can churn out is Nelle well that’s really sad and another ehhh.

Yeah, Jimmy….SuzieQ does have a way with words….LOL.
But, tonight, I am in such a good mood, I can even kiss Carly, Sonny and Peter.
I was in Elmont, Ny ( Belmont Park) today….my gorgeous hose, Justify, won!!!!!!! Muscle and sinew… He won the Triple Crown, y’all!!!!!!
I thought I’d die….lost my voice screaming like a mad-woman…..he won by two lengths!! Imagine that!!!!!!!.
My beautiful winner!! ,…..3-year old colt –best show ever!!

HaHaHaHa….there’s my Jimmy coming back with one of his “too funny” retorts!!!!! Good one, J.❤️

Shay

So then, CeeCee, are you one of the actual investors in Justify, or do you mean you simply bet on the winning horse??? Just wondering…oh, and I replied to your last comment on the Wes and Laura thread….please do check it out!

Celia
Celia

LOL, Shay….no, I am not a betting person, nor am I an investor, albeit members of my family are.
I just love horses with a passion. I love watching the fluidity of their every move—as I said; muscle and sinew—-beautiful!! Perfection!! Other than a panther, I don’t think there are species so proudly gorgeous…..the neck; the tilt of the head—stuff of poetry, if I were a poet, LOL.
Justify caught my eye since the day he became visible to the public.
I have always had my own horse—love riding….mainly quarter horses…the freedom is exhilarating, Shay, and the sensation is fresh and new each and every time.
I know it sounds ‘fairytailish’, but you do become one with your ride if the love and passion is there. Euphoric…
I lack words describing my personal feeling.
I will now check out the Wes/Laura thread…HaHa.
Ciao, bella.

Shay

I only asked because I grew up with a classmate whose family was into horse breeding, especially for racing purposes…they had a huge farm and her mother expended a great deal of effort to get us all interested in the equine lifestyle….lots of horseback riding activities, although I never caught the bug myself. Later, I had college friends who were into jumping and dressage events….again, not my thing, but I do understand the passion to which you allude…I’ve heard it all before. Happy riding, mia amica!

P.S. Meant to type “equestrian lifestyle!” Have to quit responding when I’m half-asleep!

^^^ Sonny and Carly pic. I am so – sick – of looking at their “mug” shots.. along w/Frank Valentini… this trio have forever ruined, General Hospital. they have no depth, no meaning, and lack character. Is Michael dead ? oy… good camera photoshop… YOUR dimpled one is not looking THAT good

SUNSHINE : IS there any thing SEXIER than Julian and Kim. NO unless Drew gets in the pic. nothing SEXIER

OK … ITS CHASE !

i’d like to see Frank Valentini : Shelley : Chris : tag in Jean… and see these 4 dullard hanging on the cross

they STINK… after all the Nurses’ ballin’. after the last place SINK. this is brass tacks time. cajones

Thank you Patrick. Drew and Chase are the only guys on GH who get my pulse racing.

There are a lot of angry fans out there after viewing this. The Julexis fans aren’t happy. Where’s Ava? And Finn & Anna? Even Griffin is missing.

The Triangle of Passivity isn’t shown.

GH needs to develop their younger crowd. We need an older Cam hanging with Joss. We need Molly & TJ shown with Kiki & Chase.

I don’t dare head to Twitter to see the gazillions of complaints about them adding Wes Ramsey and Michelle Stafford to the main promo pic along with Sonny & Carly. I can’t remember if Finola has been in it before but good for them if they added her (although I expect she’s on very little this summer so it’s false advertising) and Wally (who I hope has story but I expect he doesn’t.) And the song: sunshine, good vibes, good times, LOL fans will have a field day with that one–as IF GH has even one ounce of fun or lightness in it these days.

The promo has been liked by less than 5% of the people who’ve seen it. Not a good sign

Did you see the 3 or 4 promo photos of Mr. and Mrs. Wright? Why? They aren’t a couple on the show. This is just ridiculous. Plus, he is in the group photo, next to his mama bear. Most of the people on social media dislike the actor and the character, and TPTB continue to give him story and on-air coverage, oh, and the summer promo feature.

JMER

No. I seriously try NOT to read the GH soap news on Twitter. It’s such a downer. I just come here and sometimes just scan the headlines to see if things are getting better. BUT I do follow a ton of soap fans on Twitter (we tweet Classic GH and watch it together) so I did have a pic of Wes & Laura landing on my TL that looked like a promo but a fan tweeted it out so I assumed it was a joke. Guess it’s not so funny anymore. I have absolutely nothing against the actor. I just don’t like story and his character which I’m sure is the case with most. However, when they flaunt how he was hired and his relationship with Laura, they’ve got to know it fans the flames for many people. I just get nauseated and completely tune out the news (I tuned out the show long ago.) I mean most Anna fans are paying attention only in hopes that they won’t damage her anymore and maybe reverse it at some point–and she is taking off for her summer break soon so anything that’s going to happen will happen right now.

Parking Lot Peter will soon be known as the Henrik Maneuver—now we have to endure yet another redemption storyline.

Now if GH would only change their boring opening credits to something more along the lines of this promo…even if it reminds me of AMC’s opening.

Pretty sure they won’t, because people would complain it’s too close to the openings for All My Children, etc.

Reminded me of AMC’s opening too.

The only moments i like on the show is Nelle and Dr. Lisel…Anna is used to prop poopy Peter The Scenery Eater…my doctor advise me to avoid the sun…maybe he means GH where its way to Sonny…watching Jason is like looking at a store manniquin(spelling)…already sick of Chase…he is now the only cop in town…i could go on but why bother…anyway, i rarely watch this show anymore!!!!

Celia
Celia

As usual, I agree, Jimmy….except for Chase. I understand how you would be tired of him….I get it. He is kept in the back burner….however, with Daddy in town, things will be stirred up, affording Chase’ s story to impact us, unexpectedly, with something outrageously spicy.
What about; Chase is really Finn’s son? Not his brother?
Imagine that, Jimmy!! LOL. It could happen.

Well, what it looks like is they have NO idea what stories they are going to “Write” for the upcoming summer. This summer, we want sun, not rain! Here is my breakdown:

Sun: Drew, Oscar and Kim. I totally forget Tamara was Carly. I really enjoy Kim.

Sun: Mike. He should try Dr. Maddox’s experimental procedure. He has nothing to lose. Lay
off the Croton BS!

Sun: Anna, Robert, Emma and Robin.

Sun: Julian, Lucas and Brad. Let the guys bond!

Sun: Chase and NuMaxie!

Rain: Valentin, Nina, Amy, Finn, Jordan, T.J., Molly and PETER! [7 out of 8 are Frank’s creations!]

PS: Could we go ONE summer day not hearing Morgan’s name and Epiphany bullying a cop?

Celia

I like it, T….but, Nina stays. LOL.
I had mentioned Maxie and Chase as a couple, too.
Morgan, Morgan, Morgan, Morgan!! HaHa.❤️

Not too thrilled….looking forward to seeing Carly stew in prison. I only wish Sonny would go with her.
The courtroom setting was over the top for me……too staged, albeit, Nelle is killing it.
Carly vs. Nelle and vice versa….if looks could kill, guys!! Yet, I must admit the complete and utter riveting performace of both, was impeccable…..loved Elizabeth as the DA, as well…..is she assistant DA?
I found Ava’s scene, as a witness for the prosecution, kind of lame, not credible……surprisingly enough, her over -acting, bolstering Nelle’s fake defenseless demeanor, was a negative—she should not have tried so hard….Less is more.
I agree with su0000….Nelle is magnifique!!
I wanted to point out that, I get the feeling Michael has something up his sleeve. Does he question Nelle’s truth? ….or lack thereof? Is he pretending? Does he believe his mother? Is he giving Nelle a false sense of security before he pounces? Have I underestimated Michael as a dud? LOL.

I’m loving GH these days. So many different twists and turns and storylines. I TVo it every day so I can go back and look at different scenes just to make sure I don’t miss anything. Love these people.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Michael Fairman Season Premiere With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.
