    I’ll be the first one to say it….

    There’s no Genie Francis in that cheesy ad. Isn’t she supposed to be back for the summer?

    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!!
        I’m ready for the Grand Slam in November.

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

        • Shay

          June 11, 2018 at 5:45 am

          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

            June 11, 2018 at 6:20 pm

            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.

            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!

          • Shay

            June 12, 2018 at 2:32 am

            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.

    • Lucy D

      June 5, 2018 at 5:18 pm

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

    • dmr

      June 6, 2018 at 7:32 am

      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

        June 6, 2018 at 12:18 pm

        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.

    • Scott (ATWT Fan)

      June 6, 2018 at 5:41 am

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

    • dmr

      June 6, 2018 at 7:29 am

      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

      June 8, 2018 at 12:53 pm

      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

      June 7, 2018 at 8:50 pm

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

      “The Moron” has taken over the show-in death!

    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… 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.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
