The Spencer house was long abandon and then blown up…but now its back in perfect condition and the childhood home of Margeuax and her momma Jeanette????????

That set gets reused a lot. I’m fine with that as Frank needs to save on the budget somewhere.

So many scenes take place in the MetroCourt restaurant or Charle’s Pub to save money. They did spend $ to build Laura and Kevin a condo set and Alexis finally meets clients in an office set instead of her home.

We’ll probably see the Q foyer/stairs again as we approach Thanksgiving.

The Sonny centric episode might have been the first time we saw someone actually eat at Mazzolo’s.

Some sets like Metro i dont mind…if Margeaux’s family just rented the place id be fine but its made like she grew up there…cant be…the place was abandon…if it is suppose to still be the Spensers they did a find job with repairs after the explosion-most homes get demolished…they could had at least altered it somewhat but then it is a soap where they reuse actors in other roles too-lol

Pedo Jim lived in that house too. It’s getting a lot of use…. but whomever owns the house seems to only rent it to some very disreputable people.

Presumably Luke still owns the house. If he’s renting to people like that, does that mean he’s regressed into the “Fluke” personality, where ever he is. And would that mean Tracy dumped him again?

They recycle a lot of sets; Anna’s house is the old Chandler mansion from All My Chandler, and Laura’s home is loosely based on Erica Kane and Ava Jermoe’s old penthouses.

The oldest recycled set is Elizabeth’s current house. The kitchen section is new, but the staggered stairs date back to the Webber/Jones/Scorpio house

My favorite episode is when there is no Carly and Sonny….strange the writers can dream up endless stories for them but not Dante, Laura and other characters…well, maybe the can always write for Nina as well!!!!….why cant Laura hire a lookalike Nicholas to haunt Valentin????

haunt Valentin like a Christmas Carol type story…Laura could be the ghost to take him on the journey!!!

We’re on the same page, Jimh. Now, if only the scripts were on that same page…

if the show was on the same page as us it would be brilliant

You know it, Jimh! 🙂

Who would play lookalike Nikolas? It’s rumored that Nikolas returns in the near future (supposedly a new recast, but one with soap experience). Likely part of JPS exit story

No thanks. Sonny and Brenda (90’s version), yes, please! Watching the “What If” episode. I noticed during the opening credits that Willow, Cameron, and Oscar are included (contract players). The show is doomed. (Although, I think the actor that plays Cameron is talented, not interested in the “teen scene”).

They’ve been there for quite some time.

I haven’t watched in ages..

The opening got updated last month, a few weeks after nuJordan debuted, and some other cast changes took place.

The Sonny and Carly Collection? I’ll hurry up and not watch that immediately.

Why is this necessary? With Christmas coming up, I expect to attend a few parties playing the White Elephant Christmas exchange (Michael Scott from The Office called it “Yankee Swamp”). I could see this as the gift everyone would be fighting to get rid of. I mean, who would want this?

Another GH promotion that has ZERO interest for me (and countless other viewers). Anything to do with the character of Sonny is a complete turn off (as in abhorrent, and as in turning off the TV). I will say, however, that both Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun are great actresses. Hey! I ended on an upbeat note!

I loved Tamara Braun as Carly. She had great chemistry with Maurice, unlike the current coupling who are a snooze-fest!

Thanks for the backup, AVP! I’m so with you on the “snooze-fest.” zzzzzzzzzzzzz

it’s truly a funny time… to bear witness to just what exactly is Frank VAlentini wringing out ? that Laura Wright and Maurice Benard are still relevant ? it’s beyond any thing @GH can do. FIRE Shelly and Chris… @ABC/Disney.. FIRE Frank Valentini. this direction of Port Charles has truly bottomed out… ie: the last ratings thread… for the 8th straight WEEK… get it People… @GH has plateaued .. hit the skids on the 18-49 prized demographic… yeah, that’s the stronghold of Women.

why would they hang on ? for ; Sonny / Michael / Jason / Finn / Franco / Peter ??? they have no stimuli.. they add nothing.. because they have no real connect to any one on the canvas. with no personality trait to keep them

outside of looking @. I can’t even get in to Carly and Sam worth. blah

OK. SAW on Soap central…. I WANT THIS… IS Hayden returning ? BECAUSE .. this is Shelly and Chris opportune time to FREE UP ANNA. GIVE US BACK Finola Hughes. that way… Finn and Hayden can leave Port Charles or go back burner and never be missed. ANNA must BE FREE

Frank Valentini: you are either having the last laugh… at the audience expense.. or taking pleasure in caricaturing this once loved show. when you are on record of having the lowest ratings 8 weeks onward. your featured pets are not bringing in the 18-49 desired demographic…. I hope TPTB take note

Thanks for your reply, Patrick. Again, you are preaching to the choir with me! And this “once loved show” was once loved — by me. Now I feel like an ex-spouse after a messy divorce. If only TPTB would listen to us, listen to their ratings, listen to reason! 🙂

James…the last sentence in your post made me laugh…lol. Thanks.

Have a good one, dude.

Love to pieces… Sarah Joy Browne ; Tamara Braun

The old episodes remind me of how much I liked Tamara Braun as Carly. I thought she gave Carly her sensitivity. Tamara had such heat with Maurice.-IMO
Unfortunately, Tamara as Kim Nero is a boring dud!

I’ve been watching a few of the older episodes. Billy Warlock was an awful recast as AJ Quartermaine. He made AJ so unlikeable, along with the writing and character assassination.

Anne Heche in Her Final TV Performance to Air on ‘All Rise’

It is hard to believe that now one year later, television fans will see the final performance of Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World).  The talented actress passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash back on August 5th, 2022.

Heche was officially declared ‘brain dead’ on August 12th, when her reps shared that Anne was “peacefully taken off life support.”  Before she passed, Anne taped what would be her final TV acting appearance in her recurring role on the legal drama, All Rise.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

In story, Corrine has had a fraught professional relationship with Judge Lola Carmichael played by Simone Missick.  For her final appearance, Heche’s Corrine shows up as part of a trial case.

All Rise dedicated the episode to Heche. As the hour comes to its conclusion, they express: “In Memory of Anne Heche, Our Friend and Wonderful Artist. You Are Missed.”

After this, Heche will star posthumously in the independent movie feature Wildfire: The Legend of the Cherokee Ghost Horse, slated for release in November.

Will you be watching Anne’s final television performance on All Rise? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first, check out a teaser for the episode which also features former Y&R star, Wilson Bethel who stars on the legal drama as Mark Callan.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.
