GH keeps adding to their already bloated cast.

dmr
dmr

I’ve commented on that very often. They need to slim the newbies from the cast.

Dylan

I wish GH would take a recent cue from DAYS. For months, DAYS has been hiring top tier, Emmy winning talent from other shows and trying to integrate them into the cast and for a long time, it wasn’t working at all. Especially in the case of Vincent Irizarry, as Victor’s never mentioned brother Deimos. Nothing about the story, including the repeatedly mentioned 30 year timeline. Victor was already well established in Salem 30 years ago, not off battling his brother for the affections of some woman we never heard of. I had NO interest in another family war story, as we have seen enough of that with the DiMera’s.

Then, after a few weeks of lapsed and sporadic viewing, I tuned in, and DAYS was on FIRE!!! Not because of Vincent Irizarry or Deimos, but because of the story he created for the VETS we know and love!! It roped in all the Salem heavyweights…Victor, Maggie, Kate, Nicole, Roman, and then in a shocker, Chloe was returned and revealed to have a past with Deimos.

New characters can ONLY succeed insofar as they are tied to existing characters. DAYS has created one hell of an umbrella storyline that has utilized a lot of actual history we have witnessed on the show…including Victor and Nicole’s marriage, Maggie’s paralysis, Kate and Nicole’s acrimonious past, etc. This story can have repurcussions for years!! It has to be about the vets, not about Deimos. We do n’t care about Deimos…we just care how he impacts the characters we do know and love. The writing was sophisticated and literate especially when Victor went to Kate…and I love that haunting, somewhat eerie musical score they are using.

GH is FAR too top heavy with name stars and newbies…none of which have ANYTHING whatsoever to do with our show General Hospital. It is always widely reported that Frank is a whiz at keeping the show under budget, but I just dont see how. They could easily let go of 10-15 superfluous, pointless characters, and that would for sure keep the show under budget. Then maybe we would see vets and sets instead of pets!

Celia

I agree that the stories presently dealing with the adults you have mentioned, Dylan, give me hope. The writing has been fluid and interesting. And, yes!! Deimos et al are necessary means/foils, if you will, to uphold the story at hand in order to create drama and to catapult said story to a culminating climax. I do find it sad, though, since Vincent’s acting is ” la creme de la creme”. So, will he soon be history? Too bad!!
I especially applaud Billy Flynn: the realism of his pain; his anguish seeing his wife in such devastating circumstances, truly got to me…..it was a treat watching him in action.
Nonetheless, Ciara and teen-cohorts make no sense to me. The seams to their stories are gaping open, losing substance in each scene. Time to sew them up.
The situations and predicaments in which these ‘kids’ find themselves are not sellable. I understand life happens, yes, even to youth….but, all the time? There is not one happy young person on this show. No fun, happy-go-lucky, ordinary stuff…ever. What a life! LOL.

Vincent Irizarry was Dr. David Hayward on AMC and married to Anna. I’d love to see him on GH.

And cue the inevitable,we don’t need another new character on GH comments.

Lucky?

AJ

HA! That was my first thought. Whether true or not, I watch the show. I can’t control if they add characters or not, so why bother getting riled up. Why not sit back an try to enjoy the stories they’re producing.

brian

I could not agree with you more A.J. , makes me wonder what people will do if ABC cancels GH…then everybody will be crying foul instead “bloated cast”

Let’s just be happy we still have a show.

Elizabeth

Honestly, I think at this point if the show were cancelled, I would have mixed feelings about it. There would certainly be an element of thanks for having been put out of my misery.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Good actor but come on…utilize the actors you have…GH is like the Titanic…too many passengers(cast) and not enough lifeboats(story involvement for all)…deep sigh!!!

Soaphound
Soaphound

You’re right, of course. But what’s beginning to really irk me is that the powers that be MUST know by now that a lot of fans are fed up with all these newbies and yet, nearly every other week, we hear of yet another one. Guess that tells us how much our opinions matter.

Donna
Donna

Anna’s Tinder match!

Celia
Celia

Yes, Donna!!! That sounds believable. But, why does he look so scraggly and disheveled?

(Aside) : I love the new Nik. And, I especially like him with Ava…hint, hint, writers.

Timmm
Timmm

Probably linked to the kidney story.

Could be a match for Anna? She could fall for him and Robert swoop in this October and save her from FAISON’s SON! [I just think Faison has other kids out there]

Thank you Cee Cee, I love the “TEMP” Nick! He is very handsome AND can act!

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
I love new Nik, as well. Rarely do we disagree, Timmmy. Fate is a funny thing. I hope to meet you in another life. Do you believe in re-encarnation? LOL.

Brian

Maybe he’s part of Hayden’s family.

Kevin O.

I don’t know this guy and I am sure he will do well, but… don’t you think they should be shedding some characters before they go adding more?

He was on All My Children as Palmer Cortlandt son, Will Cortlandt.

Palmer’s nephew.

NO MORE NEW CHARACTERS! Write for the people you already have like Laura and Kevin, Brad and Lucas, Mac and Felicia. Finish stories in a timely manner rather than dragging them out forever. Just STOP adding people you can’t write for in a compelling a way that hold out attention. I am beyond frustrated with the addition of new characters when beloved characters get forgotten .

su0000

he might be a short stay.. just a moment player.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Does that matter? It’s just more pollution in an already overstressed cast. There is NO need for him, or any of the other new, out of work soap stars of past.

AJ
AJ

Mac & Felicia? Who are they? I kid. There’ll be stories for Laura. She’s on contract. If Kevin becomes a love interest, he’ll be around. Hopefully Brad & Lucas will get a real story, but Mac & Felicia? They’re done. Yes, Felicia was just on the other day, but they couldn’t even be in the audience for the Nurses Ball when Robin was there? They may live in Port Charles but so does Audrey Hardy. They’ll show up from time to time. If Maxie gets married, sure. If she has a baby, sure. To help Anna, maybe. But for a real story. Nope. And don’t get me wrong, I like them. I’m a longtime viewer, but it’s just the reality…

Celia
Celia

Realistically expressed, AJ. I agree.
There must be a million and one reasons why certain vets appear and disappear. We cannot always get what we want.
However, all these loose ends do not endear some of us to all storylines.
I am happy to see more of Laura and Spencer. I adore their relationship….Kevin is an added bonus.
Also, the fact that Spencer is being so stoic, over his father’s disappearance, leads me to believe he knows Nik is not dead. I would assume Nikolas had a ‘talk’ with his son before his exit.

Timmm
Timmm

A man who lives in reality! i FEEL THE SAME WITH Laura AND i GET ATTACKED, SHE WAS EVERYTHING with Luke AND NOT SO MUCH WITHOUT HIM. i WOULD LOVE FOR HER AND Kevin TO HIT IT OFF AND HAVE A BIG STORY BUT YOU SEE HOW WEAK IT IS ALREADY! Luke JUST FIT INTO EVERYONES LIVES IN PC AND HE HAD HIS OWN BIG STORIES FOR 37 ON AND OFF YEARS! LAURA STRUGGLES.

Kevin O.

I agree with you. It is so stupid of them to add anymore people. Like get rid of Jordan first. She needs to go.

Celia

Yup, Pam. Not a very efficient chief….or whatever her title is. Personal feelings should not come into play during a murder investigation or anything else, for that matter. So amateurishly excecuted.

Worst commissioner EVER!

Exactly. The onslaught of new characters are never fully developed or written well-which leads to the viewers not being invested in the new character or storyline.

Melissa
Melissa

And the pacing is so off because they are juggling so many people. No sooner are we introduced to Hayden’s mother than she disappears for days. Would have loved to have seen a romantic honeymoon scene between Lucas and Brad, given what a shabby wedding they were given. But they just disappeared. We never did learn why Rosalie and Brad married in the first place. I really want GH to get their stories under control, for them to have a clear beginning, middle and end, and then segue into another story. That’s how the rhythm of soap stories works and keep us interested in multiple storylines.

nancy dillingham

Great, fun scenes with Laura, Kevin, and Spencer–Genie can do SO much with a look, a raised eyebrow, a droll “face pull.” And Jon is no slouch, either. They are so confortable together–like they have been working in tandem for a long time. More of them, please. A little sanity, a little levity greatly appreciated. And Genie looked fantastic again today (Fri.).

Timmm

I agree, Frank is turning this into HIS imagination of GH! I dont mind new characters, you need them, BUT have them be connected to people WE want to see!

Allen saint james

I remember enjoyimg his amc work if not his storylines. He has the greatest soap spirk. New characters have to be brought in to move story and if it goes ok and the character is compelling I don’t mind.

Ces

Seriously!!! Another damn castmember???? Brad & Lucas didn’t even get a reception becsuse GH has 70 more characters to write for….. Wth???

Connie

I’m sure it’s just a short term thing. Sometimes they need to add someone to finish up a storyline.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

It has been a short term thing over and over again for the last what, five years?

Enough already. It’s like Valentini doesn’t know how to do anything other than hire former actors from other soaps. You know the old saying…. if all you have is a hammer, everything you see looks like a nail.

Limited vision, mediocre business skills, zero creativity.
And yet, he stays in his job, day in and day out.

pat

I am glad he is coming to GH.I liked him on AMC!

How about finishing or just explaining Finn’s story. The character is not compelling enough to drag this storyline on. Is he or isn’t he a drug addict. Keep it dragging and I won’t even care! So why did they even bring Michael Easton back? Gotta wonder.

AJ
AJ

Soaps move slow. That’s how they work. Compared to the 90s and earlier they are much faster paced now, but still slow.

Melissa
Melissa

Agreed they are faster than when we watched two decades ago. But every story advanced at least a little every week, and we didn’t have to wait days and even weeks to see a story thread picked up again.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

I’m with you–not warming up to the character at all–writers are “stingy” with their writing of this character–too bad.

Patrick
Patrick

Finn “hasn’t” really warmed up to any one… per se

1. Where’s Roxie
2. Dr. Leisl is at least… giving Finn rise to the occasion
3. his forced bff w/Carly

????

I don’t get that he sought out Hayden… to return that “check”

so yeah ….

what is Finn going to be

he’d better not diss Monica for too much longer

argh! I can’t stand that “Carly” story is front and center… and she’ll be all commando soon enough

Timmm

Good point. Look how long they drug out Fluke and Sleepy Miller’s “Jake!” We didnt / dont care anymore!

Question;
why do they not hire overweight average looking women or men ??
yah know- the real deal average guy ..

I would like a real guys ..

There is not one ‘Nathan’ in my neighborhood or work nor in my area..

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

su…thats what i like about British soaps like Coronation Street….they are all average looking people and no botox…some men have red hair and freckles…you can even have a boil on your butt on their shows-lol

Nu AMY is a normal looking girl.

Look…as wonderful as James Patrick Stuart is as an actor, GH needs to STOP adding new characters to the ALREADY BLOATED canvas!!!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!

Loved him on AMC. However, I agree that GH does not need to add anymore new characters. So many favorites are never on. I hardly watch anymore.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I hear you, Louisa. Lately, my finger seems welded to FAST FORWARD during GH, especially when any of the following are on: Jordan (is she a joke as Commissioner or what), Andre, Valerie, Lulu & Dante (I don’t mind them separately, but together? No thank you), Bad Franco (liked him better nicer). And characters I used to like (Julian, Nathan–he STILL looks like he’s always ready to punch Spinelli again, for no reason– Sabrina) have been ruined for me.

Timmm

FF with a capital F!

New stories sometimes need new characters or the show gets stale. We can’t watch the same 10 characters every single week as they do on Y&R.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I agree, I just think too many at once, or in a 2 -3 month span, are a mistake. When you bring on a new, really dynamic actor/character, there needs to some “getting to know you” time. Griffin and Finn were good enough actors to keep me compelled for quite a while, whereas Andre, Valerie, and Nurse Amy wore out their welcome pretty quickly with me.

Patrick
Patrick

agree

Wednesday ep: on the “plane” going to London?

Trent Dawson, Tyler Christopher, Maura West

HOW GREAT IS THIS ?

I sat their marveling….. YES

YIKE – go their GH

I was wondering… if

Maura West and Tyler Christopher had ever had scenes together?

would Ava and Nicholas paths ever cross ?

as a star crossed lovers… I thought the heat was palpable !!!!

add in Trent Dawson… I THANK THE SOAP GODS

As the World Turns… will forever be… the best of the best

TD’ Henry w/ Colleen Zenk… MADE the LAST years of Oakdale

I swear we were seeing Maura West just savoring these new interactions… ACTING

bring it on GH : Huxley, Ava, and Nicholas

this is what fans clamor for… GOOD ACTORS

it just stinks tho… that Nicholas is written this way… all because of … too much too soon… Hayden… their relationship has gone south

I am hoping beyond

that either Laura w/Helena good intentions… will bequeath more money and power… to both Laura and Nicholas…

let’s see Ava out of Sonny and Carly orbit… I say theirs potential for HEAT w/Nicholas… AVA ! do the right thing… and help the man out

which may be a moot point… as just who is Huxley working for…

I say GH is going way too far… in hiring and adding in and around Hayden… a new mother… and now as it’s intimated… that Huxley may be working for and with Hayden ? is her new father orbiting … just saying… the spark is gone from Hayden and Nicholas… so why bother ?

I hope not… enough of these silly games… about money

It’s not out of the question… that Trent Dawson could steal the show

Patrick
Patrick

“…AVA ! do the right thing… and help the man out ”

ok – ok

I forget… Ava does not want to do any thing to jeopardize her life with Avery

right?

just saying… I thought I saw a renewed sparkle of vim and vigor

w/ Maura “Ava”

I so want the show to move … w/o so much … Carly / Sonny / Jason / Sam

dang it… TC’ Nicholas … as the resident “baddie” LOOKED w/beard ! hum

Celia
Celia

You did see vim and vigor vibrate through Ava, Patrick. We must see through the same set of lenses. LOL.
I attribute this newfound “joie de vivre” to Nik’s company. These two clicked. Love it!!

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Give me Genie Francis EVERY DAY. Never tire of watching her. She really anchors a show–and GH is sorely in need of that anchor–BUT they are moving the story line along at a PAINFUL snail’s pace. Wonder why–with Genie legion of fans wanting so much more.

Ces
Ces

True ….. But now we have like 80 to choose from and the writers ate leaving stories dangling for weeks/months at a time.

Ces
Ces

*are*

Scott
Scott

Maybe he will be a new character brought in to “wipe” out the bloated cast…..at first, he’s in for Carly’s kid’s kidney story, then people start turning up dead….Nina, Morgan, Sam, Jordan, Andre, Julian, Sabrina……then Christina, Molly, TJ and Felix and Brad get taken hostage by him……turns out the character was in prison with Micheal and became infatuated with him, so he donated his kidney to save Josslyn, then he kills people that are in Micheal’s orbit…..of course, Jason and Sonny will save Micheal but not before TJ and Brad are killed….in a crazy cat and mouse game, with Alexis and Dianne, it will turn out that this new character will be Dianne’s long lost love child with Raymond Berlin….thus making him related to Rachel and Liz Webber…..who also get held hostage….so pretty much the whole town is killed, cast is trimmed….new stories breach out….some twist of fate that Sonny, Jason and Julian all get shot and put in comas indefinitely………

Patrick
Patrick

standing ovation to your last sentence

I wouldn’t have a problem… and

per your 2nd to last

“new stories breach out…. “

Soaphound
Soaphound

Scott: how can we get you a job writing for GH? Any story that wipes out so many sore thumbs has my vote, and a back story for Diane, too? I’m in heaven. One favor, though. Please spare Jason and Morgan. I promise you’ll like them better under your story possibilities! And I need SOME eye candy. Nathan “DUDLEY DO-RIGHT” just isn’t enough for me.

Aria
Aria

I have to agree with my fellow commentators above, and I’m surprise nobody from the show is paying attention, time and time agian this is one of the shows top complaints yet they keep adding new characters and leaving stories with current characters just hanging. It’s sad, I remember when GH announced around the same time that both finola Hughes n genie Francis had renewed their contracts with the show and yet only finola has had a storyline n airtime ( thnk goodness) but poor genie Francis is barely on, we can’t blame tony Geary anymore because he’s gone so what gives.?

Ces
Ces

So agree with you! Geez, Lucas & Brad probably wont be seen again for 3 more months; just in time to adopt a baby. Oh wait, that’s Dante & Lulu’s quest for life ….. Still!

Letemeatc8ke

The world is a stage – and apparently that stage is on the set of GH.

Celia
Celia

Oh, gosh!! Who knows anymore, what with all these new portrayals of anyone or everyone. Is he a good guy?
Same goes for Huxley who seems to have kidnapped Nik and Ava. Too coincidental for Helena/Cassadines to be behind it? Or Ray? Does he know Nik has the diamonds and wants them back? If Nik is not an imposter, that is.
I thought I heard Mrs. Berlin say the family had real estate practically all over the globe and then some.
I wish I cared enough to speculate to whom Stuart’s character is linked.

Timmm
Timmm

I hope Hux is Spinelli’s dad!

Celia

Yup! Imagine what they could create with their fruitful brains, while stirring their cauldron.
I think Spinelli is a witch (warlock?), my Timmmy. Ha!

Drake

New characters are also essential to the future of a show. Laura, Bobbie, Scottie etc.. are legendary characters played by terrific actors but a show doesn’t stay on the air for 50 years without adding new characters. I’m sure diehard fans were not happy with the additions of Carly, Sonny and Brenda in the 90s but overtime they began to represent a new era for GH. That new era is why GH is still standing while several others have long gone. Give the newbies a chance people.

su0000
su0000

Hi Drake
I like new characters.. they are something new and different to watch.
I have tired of the same ol’ faces day after day after decades .. lol
New is good .

Mary SF
Mary SF

Here’s a thought– instead of filling an established soap with new characters until the show becomes unrecognizable, why don’t they just create a new soap based on the new characters instead of hijacking the established show– I get writers get royalties for the characters they create, but honestly when the air time is taken up more by new characters than the characters the show started with, you might as well rename the show to reflect that truth.

Scott H
Scott H

I’m hoping the View will get cancelled soon, since the show is such a trainwreck…maybe ABC will be smart and create a new 30 minute or two 30 minute soaps……use the money they are dishing out for the lackluster Joy, Whoopi and Raven and get a decent show with a good crew and good actors and writers…..get some new blood in to write the show….stop recycling the old “has been” writers and get some new blood and technology….i’m sure they could draw viewers in some how…..be creative….

Ces
Ces

All I can say is Another damn cast member???? Seriously? GH can barely tell all the stories they have and they add more? This isn’t the AMC/OLTL/GH show, this is GH! Ridiculous to keep hiring every unemployed soap actor out there. Trim the fat!

Sigrid :)

I loved him on All My Children, so I’m excited to see that he’s joining GH!! He’s a great actor!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Courtesy/ABC

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
