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????

Jimh

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

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”).

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

Jamesj75

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! 🙂

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.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

DAYTIME CARES Live Event Set Featuring Soap Favorites In Virtual Variety Show

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
