General Hospital

GH's Dominic Zamprogna's Power Performance of the Week!

© JPI Studios

On yesterday’s fantastic episode of General Hospital, where parents and their children are reunited after the tragic and serious General Hospital Ski Trip bus accident, it was Dominic Zamprogna as Dante Falconeri who delivered another nuanced and stirring performance with his mix of trying to hold himself together while being fearful of the loss of his mother, Olivia, who is still in critical condition following surgery from her internal injuries suffered in the bus accident.

The episode was also filled with little nuggets especially from Steve Burton (Jason) getting to spend a few moments with his son, Jake ( thanks to Liz), Chad Duell (Michael) for playing the understated hero, and Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) for his monlogue about fatherhood to Siobhan.

But in the end, it was Zamprogna’s scene while at Olivia’s bedside that made many reach for the hankies!  And so,  On-Air On-Soaps names Dominic this week’s Power Performance of the Week. You can watch the entire episode at ABC.com or view our Video of the Day on the MF Soaps Homepage of Dominic’s scenes.

The Jan 5, 2011 episode is one of the best episodes in a long time! While Dante’s scenes were wonderful as were others, the scenes with Jason and Jake and Sam and Elizabeth were the best! Dante’s performance was emotionally powerful but so was Jason’s. The emotion in Jason’s face, eyes and finally smiles was so very powerful and more subtle and deeper. They all did an amazing job with this episode! Want more!

I really could not agree more. The actor, Dominic Zamprogna, is amazing. I literally cryed along with him. The pain and fear he showed for his mother was so heartwarming and, for me, it stole the whole show. There is nothing more beautiful than the relationship between mother and child and Dominic (Dante) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) show it perfectly on screen, perfection. He’s one amazing actor and General Hospital is lucky to have him on board.

I think DZ is the only actor on the show that will be nominated for a EMMY because he is that good but also because he is the only actor that the writers care about and really write for.

I just love Dominic, and I started even crying the thought that Olivia could die. I can almost relate to Dante’s worry, because one time I was worried about my mother when she had to go to work and the roads were horrible. After an hour my mother still had not gotten to work yet, and I was scared that something bad happened to her. In my relief my mother finally made it. I think that Dominic deserves an emmy because of his good acting. I started crying when Dominic did at his mother’s bedside. I’m glad though that Olivia pulled through. Dominic makes Dante seem so real and he is the best actor in ABC daytime. I love you Dominic.

I love Dominic and he makes Dante so real. I don’t understand whey he did not get an emmy nomination, but he should of. Dominic plays his part so well, and I cried as well when he was crying at his mother’s bedside. The fact that Dante was so heartbroken at the thought his mother could die made me sad. Dominic is the best actor in ABC Daytime and I simply love him.

I do like Dominic’s acting as well. I don’t know if he is my favorite actor though, because I still like Steve Burton. I did feel for Dante when the thought of his mother could die. It broke my heart. I think that my two favorite actors in daytime are Steve Burton and Dominic Zamprogna. It is hard to tell though, if I think that Dominic deserved an emmy. It depends on the votes, and he may deserve one. Maybe he will get one next year.

I like Dominic too, and I think that he is the best actor on the show. I do not usually like short guys, but he is something else. I love him with Lulu and I hope that they stick together. Lante is my favorite couple on the show. I loved it when Dante stuck by his mother, knowing that she could die. The tears he showed touched my heart, and he is the best guy on the show.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Is Named Police Commissioner In Port Charles; But They Say It’s Temporary

In a cool move, the powers-that-be at ABC’s General Hospital, had Laura (Genie Francis), the now mayor of Port Charles, name none other than former commish, Mac Scorpio (John J, York) as interim police commissioner while Jordan (Brian Nicole Henry) recovers from her kidney transplant and needs some time to recover from her medical ordeal.

Now while the show is making sure in story it is stated that Mac is the temporary person in charge of the PCPD, for many longtime fans of the series, they remember fondly when Mac held down the position for years.

In the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, York said on the surprise story turn: “I was thrilled when Frank Valentini (EP, GH) told me!” He added that he was advised there was great story coming up, and added, “That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to see what is going on.  However long it lasts, I’ll take whatever I can get and I’m really looking forward to being back in there.  There is a whole nee squad. a whole new group of people. I don’t even know who these cops are anymore!”

Shortly after being named commissioner on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Mac is already getting wind of some criminal activities and things that seem way off; from Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) new assignment with The Intruder, to his brother Robert (Tristan Rogers), being pushed out of the WSB and forced to retire, and much more.   Can Mac get the police department to solve some crimes ..> for once?

So, what do you think of John J. York getting to be back in action at the PCPD? Do you hope somehow the story turns and remains in the position even after Jordan is well, or are you hoping Jordan can get back into the swing of things fast and return to her job?
