Me either, I use to like him then one day he showed up on General hospital, I hated his sick character, jason should have killed him after he saw his first finger painting, anyways I hope he is gone and he never, ever, comes back.

No. Gave up the satellite dish. And, even if I had not, it sounds too much like a tweens show like iCarly, Big Time Rush, or something else, just with drama. Not to mention I think James Franco (no disrespect) has done enough damage already. 😉

James Franco just wants to try eveything he can and I think he has an obsession with soap opera. Is that good or bad? We will never know. He’s a brilliant quirky actor!

I say it’s bad, He came to port charles and with abc’s blessing he helped to destroy it and I believe he is a very big part of general hospital going downhill in the ratings. Let him stick to movies and what ever else he is doing just don’t come back to general hospital.
