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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
