Jack Wagner Relates His Disappointment On General Hospital 50 Comeback As Frisco!

Courtesy/ABC

Jack Wagner who came and went as Frisco Jones in a blink in an eye during General Hospital’s 50th anniversary celebration and storylines, where many long time favorites returned, took to Twitter very late last night/early this morning to voice his displeasure at the way his comeback went down.

The GH 50 return focused on Frisco trying to woo back Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and being reunited with his daughter, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) only to have him venture off and and exit Port Charles … yet again!

Wagner related to his fans:  “Very disappointed in the powers that b @ GH. The ratings momentum around the 50th was blown, BADLY, sorry GH fans we were misled.  The way Frisco was written out was wrong n out of character, I could have f**kin screamed n should have but didn’t want 2 make waves.  Shame on me.  It’s my fault, I should have had some sack n stood up 4 the character n his history but was a total pussy.  I apologize GH n Frisco fans my bad. I also think so much reality TV is bullshit! A lot of the people r wasted most of the time. Sad the networks sell this shit message 2 kids. BTW I checked w God b4 I chose 2 FINALLY speak my truth about a couple things, He said “It’s about time”. TY God 4 having my back!! Sleep well tweets, I know I will…lv”

OK General Hospital fans, what do you think about Jack’s sentiments? Do you agree that Frisco’s return was botched? Do you feel Jack got a raw deal? What do you think about what he voiced via his tweets? Weigh-in!

When I was growing up, Frisco and Felicia were my favorite supercouple on General Hospital, only to be followed by Sonny and Brenda in the 90’s. I really liked how Frisco was written this time around, his comedic bantering with Mac. I was saddened to see him leave again. I love him and Kristina on-screen together. Brings back good memories from when I was younger.

I think Jack Wagner spoke the truth that a lot of people are too polite or nervous to voice. GH did not do Frisco judgment. They had the character making a stand for his daughter, only to turn around and leave town when he was romantically rejected. This really makes Frisco look cruel. Disappointing. Who can blame Jack for voicing his disgust?

I SO agree with Jack, I’m so bitter over the way my all-time favorite couple was treated, I haven’t watched GH since! Frisco should have left on a hopeful note, with a tender scene between him & Felicia, didn’t have to reconcile, but they needed to leave the fans some HOPE! And all the trust he’d built up with Maxie was blown. Felicia shoots him down, so he’s gone. Making Maxie (and US) think Felicia is the only reason he was there. HOW could Carlivati, a self-professed “long-time fan”, do Frisco like that? I do not blame Jack Wagner one… Read more »

Brava, Jack! All F&F fans knew that something about the way the tide turned at the Nurse’s ball did not pass the sniff test. The ending was harsh and didn’t just not redeem Frisco, it doubled down on the gross mischaracterization over the years. I, for one, am sick of hearing how much Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini “love” vets when I see their half-assed attempts to placate the old guard. Jack’s return, in particular, was a debacle. It didn’t seem that It was going to be, but they definitely baited and switched. Why bring back a character to have… Read more »

Salimah, you and your F&Fer’s need to quit bashing JJY on twitter. I don’t know the man personally, but neither do you. I am starting to notice animosity towards KW also. I don’t know the woman personally, but neither do you. At the same time you and yours lavishly praise Mr. Wagner for fighting his demons saying what a wonderful person he is. Maybe he is a wonderful person. I don’t know him personally, but just remember neither do you.

Your reply isn’t directed to the actual contents of my comment on this article and it [your reply] carries with it an oddly, but specifically personal tone. The first thing I’d offer/suggest is that referring to “me and my F&F’ers” assumes a lot. I have never bashed John J York (JJY is your familiar-sounding shorthand for the actor you’ve confirmed you don’t know, yes?) on twitter or anywhere else. I am not responsible for, nor do I police what anyone else says about him–be they self-described “F&Fers” (we don’t use an apostrophe because it’s plural, not possessive) or not. Your… Read more »

I disagree and find the timing rather odd. I’m coming at this as a newer fan, that wasn’t watching when he was originally on. But to me, the only part about this return that I didn’t like was the abrupt exit. It confused me after he finally took a stand against Britt for Maxie and then left because Felicia declined his marriage proposal. I thought maybe Frisco would turn over a new leaf and be there for his daughter even after he left town, but no… If Jack was disappointed in the way his character was written, why didn’t he… Read more »

Sorry, but Jack is wrong about Frisco being written out of character. I loved Frisco and Felicia in the mid 80s, but like it or not Frisco left his wife to pursue his dreams in the WSB. He was presumed dead, Felicia moved on to Colton, Frisco returned with promises to be a good husband this time. He last about a year, maybe two, and was off on another mission leaving Felicia to raise Maxie this time. On his final return to the show in the 90s, Felicia tracked him down to tell him she was pregnant, and he admitted… Read more »

well Jane, Jack Wagner wanted out of the show, so that’s why Frisco joined the WSB. There was never a man more devoted to his wife than Frisco was to Felicia – until the actor wanted to leave. THEN Frisco joined the WSB, they had to write him out somehow. That’s the problem, they didn’t want to recast Jack Wagner. So they let him come back for short little stays and every time he left the WSB was to blame. It makes me mad, because that is not the Frisco&Felicia I fell in love with. They were uber popular &… Read more »

No matter where the character and actor are on this list you speak of, when you bring a beloved vet back in order to get his/her fans to watch the show, it’s generally a good idea to write them well… it’s not like he hasn’t returned and is asking for fixing, he DID return and they made things worse. Even if they weren’t going to keep him on, they could have been kinder to the character, and the FANS.

I agree Jane with what you are saying I just think they should have left him off the canvas what was the point of his coming back? They used fans to reel you back in and then it was back to the three OLTL people that they keep forcing down everybody’s throat. Like I said in the post below they are not at OLTL anymore please move on RC &FV!

He left in 1995 for the final time, because the fans were sick of his short stints and not wanting to stay longer. Felicia needed to move on. Mac was there and raised Georgie and Maxie. Even Felicia never stayed around. Both were lousy parents. Mac did a great job overall. Surprised that Georgie and Maxie never changed there last name to Scorpio. Frisco came back and insisted he changed, but he didnt. Robert and Anna have done this as well.

Apuffs

Complete missed opportunity. All you say is true MK, but fans would have loved a contrite Frisco coming back to MAXIE not Felicia and begging for a relationship with her. Frisco could have changed and regretted his choices and made peace with a a messed up Maxie.

Bingo Jane. I loved Frisco And Felicia. His exit was badly written. I cringed while watching it, but I have a life outside of the make believe soap world and I don’t dwell on it. I’ll be labeled as not being a true Frisco & Felicia fan because I agree. So be it. According to some F&F fans no one else compares to them if your opinion differs even slightly from theirs. They also think they “know” Jack Wagner. In my opinion there is only one person who knows him the best and that would be his ex wife. She… Read more »

Really enjoyed seeing Jack Wagoner back as Frisco. Was so sorry to see him exit in such a sad way, I was looking forward to more of him, but yet again the writers are not listening to their fans. I think you have a mole among your writers. Someone is certainly trying to sabotage General Hospital and it’s probably the same person or people that got All My Children and One Life to Live cancelled. I’m glad Jack voiced his disappointment and think many of the other characters would love to say something but would surely be out of a… Read more »

I think Jack said it perfectly. It was botched and given the momentum from the Nurse’s Ball, they could have launched some terrific storylines. Instead they focused on the 3 OLTL actors and how to integrate them into GH as “new” characters again. This show has be hijacked by this effort and the whole Franco storyline. Don’t get me wrong, I love the 3 very talented actors and know they faced tough day ahead in new roles, but this is where Frank and Ron chose to go and it backfired. There were times I thought Laura was gone as she… Read more »

Jack told the truth and I’ve never been so proud to call myself his fan – dating back to his first day on GH. I only wish the rest of the GH cast – VETS – not the influx of newbies and OLTL pawns – would speak out. The bait and switch to get GH fans to watch only to have the newbies and the OLTL 3 that contract breaching Craptini turned the whole show upside down for shoved down the audience’s throat is disgusting.

Steve Burton’s decision to leave had to do with his family but in my personal opinion, his interviews came across to me that he was not very happy with the direction of his character. JaSam lovers including myself were screwed over and other twists were hyped up as a ploy. They baited the OLTL fans with their characters only to destroy the integrity of the… Read more »

Based on the time of the night/morning he posted the message, and the tone, which is uncharacteristic of Jack Wagner, I wonder if he didn’t maybe have several adult beverages under his belt when he wrote that, lol.

Agree with Jack 100%! I thought Ron & Co would fix the wrong of how Frisco was treated as a deadbeat dad in the past. So much storyline potential with Maxie. (I would love a F&F reunion but I understand the real life sensitivity of that situation.) Nope, they’d rather glorify a psycho serial killer nowadays. Frisco is the only one Maxie told about the baby. Even Felicia doesn’t know. Why bother keeping Mac & Felicia on to appear once every couple of months and then have a ridiculous wedding with purported guest Richard Simmons?! Puhlease. GH lured me back… Read more »

Jack was a guest, nothing more or less..
He is pissed he was not bowed to.
He was written to leave again as is his normal , leaving..

The story was not about him, but about Maxie..
I think Jack was crying in his beer last night/t that he wasn’t asked to stay on GH.

Being he was not staying on he was written to go bye bye in a way to affect Maxie..
I thought all went well ..

self-pity never looks good on a man 🙂

I loved Frisco & Felicia in the day and Frisco returning was one reason I watched GH 50th anniversary month. He left abruptly and as much as I like Mac, the chemistry between Frisco & Felecia was never utilized. Yes, I know they are real life ex’s, but both were in agreement that they would work together so why not go for it. They could have gone their separate ways but with some good love scenes and emotion. I also agree – for them to have Frisco & Maxie work on their relationship to make Frisco out to be a… Read more »

Of course he did, I was a real Frisco/Felica fan, I even named my daughter after her. However, the come back was a big disappointment. They the actors were a disappointment.

I was one of many who was doing cartwheels from February – May as GH brought back a slew of veterans that fans have been clamoring for. We were all so giddy with excitement, we didn‘t even care about the quality of the writing. Now, looking back, and seeing the shocking, garbled mess that the show is just a few months later, it is time to look back on our collective euphoria and see that most of thvets return storylines dishonoured history, destroyed characters and couples, and generally fizzled. Frisco and Mac were made out to look high school posers… Read more »

Shouldn’t have even brought them back at all if that’s what they were gonna do. I was expecting a Luke&Laura adventure story, that’s what was promised, but NO.. we got, like you said, a bad Saturday morning cartoon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad Carlivati brought these actors back, I love them, I just wish he’d spend as much time on storylines for them as he does… Read more »

I think the truth is that RC cannot write. I don’t know what he does for FV such that he keeps his job, but it can’t be writing. As someone else said here, his second grade writing style and all the stupid twists and turns all indicate that he can’t do anything else. Shallow camp yes. Drama, romance, nuance, integration, sophistication – can’t touch it with a ten foot pole.

The return was not only a hideous disservice to the character and his fans, but most of the story did not support either Felicia’s ultimate choice OR the way Frisco chose to leave town. There was little indication that Felicia wanted to choose Mac — the only character I’ve ever seen get thrown under a bus and still get the “girl” — and every indication that Frisco really did have an interest in Maxie’s life and feelings. GH *could* have had the WSB call Frisco to help save the kidnapped Lulu, refuse, and then have Maxie *ask* him to go… Read more »

I like that Jack spoke out about how Frisco was written during his return. Being a huge Frisco and Felicia fan I was not happy with the outcome. I’m upset about the way the show is treating all of it’s veterans who have returned, but they are so focused on former OLTL actors. This is why I have stopped watching GH. I know this is not going to change anything but at least I’m not the only one that has noticed. I wish he would have done this when it happened, maybe there would have been a different outcome..

I also love how Jack takes responsibility for not speaking up to TPTB re: his character. He is truly writing a forgiveness letter here to his fans that follow him. That is what this is all about.

Frisco was a scumbag, deadbeat dad so his departure from PC was really no surprise. TPTB need to bring him back to take care of Maxie
when her time comes to deliver Little Miss Spinelli. Of course considering that Jack & Kristina are divorced no one with a brain
thought there would be a Frisco/Felicia reunion.

I am so happy that he finally spoke up for his fans. As a Frisco fan back in the day and now, they did a horrible job and used him to gain ratings for the 50th Anniversary. I believe if he knew what was in store for the character, he would have NEVER came back. He knows what an iconic character Frisco was to the show and his career. Don’t fault the man for moving on and furthering his career back in the day. The writers wrote around it the best they could, but it was Guza who tarnished Frisco… Read more »

I agree with you Mary…why say something now when he couldve said something right after leaving the show?

So he left…TPTB might have asked him back in the future but i doubt it now.

I felt Frisco was written well… I love that he tried to woo Felicia and she was right to turn him down for Mac (unless Jack Wagner was wanting a contract?). I felt like they left it at a good spot for him to return at any point. Also, there has been mention of the character by Anna and Luke as being helpful (off screen) and also by Britt, Maxie, and Felicia. I find his language and choice of words to be tacky and distasteful. Not sure what sparked this negative tirade by him but I hope he pulls it… Read more »

I didn’t think it was out of character… Frisco left and wasn’t heard from for d all of Georgie’s life and then some. So for Frisco to come and get sortof involved and then leave abruptly, I felt it was normal…

but someone just mentioned him the other day on GH, so I figured there would always be a chance he would come back again… like when Maxie has her baby. Be nice if he’d come back and bust the Britch and her momma and bring back Robin.

don’t burn your bridges yet, Jack!

I think Frisco’s return was definitely botched – at very least if he and Felicia didn’t reunite he SHOULD be here for Maxie.
Given that he knows the truth about the baby he should be supporting Maxie when it all blows up.
But it’s over with – Frisco has come and gone…better to focus on the next venture Jack.

Frisco wasn’t the only character written out of character since the new regime joined. Can we stop a moment and consider the farce of the Robert stories, or reactions to his coma, or the shell that is now Anna Devane, or Jax’s last comeback? There is no attention to the history, relationships and character development that made GH unique and must see for decades. The crap on now with Kiki and Franco is just embarrassing.

I will also add that the current regime really disappointed a lot of fans, including myself, with the handling of the 50th anniversary. They brought back all these vets and then either wasted them or did more damage to character history than we already suffered under years of the Guza era. His handling of Frisco’s return is a prime example of that. While I always loved Mac and Felicia, you couldn’t touch the chemistry and real love connection between Frisco and Felicia by comparison. The current regime should have honored the supercouple of Frisco and Felicia and wrote the story… Read more »

PP has no obligation to Jack, none..
PP owes Jack noting..
They asked him if he would like to return for the 50th, Jack agreed..
Jack is an actor who was paid for acting, his job.

Why Jack expected to be treated with love and have the story written the way he would want it, is not in the job description..

Jack was a guest appearance, that is all he was.

Jack is looking for attention and bit of pity…

First I must say I began watching Gh as a tween only because of a frisco and Felicia! They were magical, funny, chemistry was amazing and iconic because we are talking about these characters, especially Frisco almost 30 years later. I did watch Gh because Felicia, Sean and Anna were beloved characters. I even grew to enjoy Mac and Felicia if we couldn’t have Frisco. Once Gh went off the deep end writing Felicia into a corner of an unauthentic resemblance of the original Character, I was done ! I truly tuned into Gh went vets came back like KW!… Read more »

You thought the mutual goodbye between Luke and Laura was something to behold? The vast majority that I know and reactions on the message boards thought it stunk to high heaven. Having the most iconic couple ever created on television end their almost 30 year relationship by comparing it to an old sweatshirt that didn’t fit? I agree, what they did to Frisco was worse. But I wouldn’t hold up the LnL goodbye as the threshold to meet!

Nan

My intent was to convey that if tptb were not goi g to not have these couples together to at least write Frisco and Felicia off with some mutual respect. No, by no means do I think l&l was great but just why bring a frisco back to actually have F&f leave on a sour note? Not even a hug goodbye? wish the other well?Why have JW do so much promotional shows for Gh 50 for that embarrassing ending? I rather they used other Gh actors then make it look like Frisco return was going to be more rewarding.

Pretty much everyone that writes abt gh online has the same thoughts as wagner does abt gh. But people are going to have opinions whenever an actor’s really vocal abt his unflattering opinions on any tv show he’s acted on. But he’ll probably get attacked for talking abt religion. That’s definitely frowned upon amongst hollywood’s tolerant crowd.

The millions that love all about GH do not go line and bitch whine and complain abut it.. We are content happy fans..

The habitual complainers are the cry babies who watch every day and then say they hate or dont like GH, and still they watch every day and complain every day..
A Psychiatrist could write a book on them LOL ((there is a name for those types lol

I loved Frisco and Felicia back in the day!!! I like JW!!! I love GH!!! I am trying so hard to not be upset with RC & FV and support the best soap and the best cast and crew!!! I was so disappointed that JW/Frisco did not get more time with Maxie and Felicia and Anna and many others. The scenes between Frisco and Maxie were truly exceptional and I wanted soooooooooooooooooooo much more!!! I loved seeing the legendary characters come back and yet it was just a taste and not much more which was very frustrating! I have been… Read more »

I just finished Monday’s episode and I don’t usually say or think this… but… what the F**K!!! Excuse me but… holding Danny up and almost dropping him and shooting a faux Elizabeth and the happy notion of Franco jumping to his death which of course is not real… major disappointment… except that the story is making a move down the road! Excuse me but what… are you thinking here?!!! I would really love to wake up tomorrow and hear that this current Franco storyline was a figment of my imagination or just a really bad dream!!! I really feel sorry… Read more »

Actually it was Franco confronting himself.. which is essential to his story.
His tumor added hallucinations..
Franco hates himself and didn’t want his crazy physo bloodline to continue on in Danny and create another him/Franco. or Jason ”killers”.
It was well done and very much what a person in his condition would be like..

Anybody in high school or collage who had Psychology class ”got it” .. lol 🙂

Thanks su0000! I guess it takes one beautiful mind to know another. I actually have a degree in psychology… and after processing what I saw… I came to the conclusion that they were playing the schizophrenia story to the heightened level. We did not have any storyline prep for this and usually with this type of story you have a character that is not evil incarnate to go through this and certainly not without more warning than one minute he has a seizure and the next he has a brain tumor and the next he may have severe schizophrenic episodes.… Read more »

Disagree. Frisco fans have been very vocal, including calling and writing to TPTB and getting letters published in the soap mags.

I was talking about here on this message board…i mostly read positive comments about the 50th and vets return, and very little negative.

I was refering to this message board…months ago i didnt read many negative comments here about the shows 50th or the vets return(most were meant to be brief including J.W.) Most comments were positive…now suddenly there is more than before on this message board and i find that strange…as for tweeters…i havent looked there or in a soap mag in over a year…my comments were about what ive read here and not in mags or on twiter ect.

Just b/c folks weren’t writing on THIS message board, doesn’t mean they weren’t expressing it. There are tons of message boards out there–and many people have been disappointed for a year now. See the reactions to the Jax-Brenda return, the handling of Robert, the use of Frisco, the front and center of Todd/Star/McBain — and now Franco/Kiki/Silas. The thing is I know there are folks out there that are supporting TPTB, but folks shouldn’t just discard the negative feedback. There is A LOT. Not b/c people are “whining” — there are things (pace, story lines, use of characters) that fans… Read more »

Geez- he must’ve been drinkin a few before tweetin. Back in the day, JW was hot. Now, not so much. While it was great to see him briefly, he just didn’t have chemistry with any of the other characters/actors on the show. His ex- Kristina Wagner looks AWESOME- and it was great to see on screen again. It’s a shame that he felt the need to burn his bridges- I’m sure the GH execs wont’ be asking him back any time soon.

Please see my reply to Salimah. Do not act like you know him like know one else does just because you follow him on twitter.

Sorry, that should read “like no one else.” I do know the difference between “know” and “no.”

There is something deeper going on here. I hope his loved ones intervene and get him the help he needs. I read that he had past anger issues as well as the alcohol problems. I think it is real concerning, though not uncommon, for someone with these issues to pop off like this. He seems to be struggling even in recovery. He even tweeted a couple months ago that people should calm down before making heated phone calls or e-mails, yet he does something like this. Emotional struggles for sure. Hope he someday finds peace.

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.
