Well, Josh always brings his A game. It was great and the portion with Katelyn was sweet. Loved seeing the smoke coming out of “Shiloh’s” ears. LOL!

he so cute and I just love him and willow together. Love the performance, not cheesy like some tend to be, so hopefully the count for cheesy will be low this year.

^^^^ “…the count for cheesy will be low this year”

Laugh out loud – getting the giggle

that Harrison Chase IS a show unto himself. it’s too bad that this “run” may have outlasted it’s true intent

other than to showstop their best… it’s so funny how we see very little of the blowhard build that Frank Valentini “dullard” troupe dare to care about the Nurses’ Ball.

Sonny / Carly / Jason /Sam / Finn / Michael / Peter / Franco

even in the last 4-5 years ^^^ his pets do very little. are we resting their acting chops?!?! oh my god.. getting the giggles . Jeez!

I’ll take some SHARP Chedder

I’m hoping for a full disclosure on Dr. Neil Byrne… come on.. tell me he doesn’t have any resemblance to Alec Baldwin AND as Tuc Watkins father

FUN’ny Post.

Josh did a great job. Ryan Peavey could never hold a candle to this mans talent! Willow, she is cute. Why cut your hair sweetie? But anyway, nice sneak peek.

Josh did quite well. His performance was entering.
but- the song, bad choice LOL

The British rock band Coldplay is OK
but-
the American- Chainsmokers ‘electronic’ music is annoyingly Yuck-
I would never download the song, not if free LOL

{{ can’t hold the bad choice of that song against Josh, not his fault the song is quite somber LOL
Something upbeat and toe-tappy happy would have been good.

Ugh. I’m really trying with our American soaps. Maybe it’s having watched the same stories play out year after year over the course of many shows come and gone. To be fair I’ve been watching since the late 60’s. Now with britbox and hollyoaks on Hulu, I’m loathe to watch. Thanks to YouTube TV I’m glossing over episodes from July-December 2018 after trying and failing to engage with the first half of the year 2018. Right now DAYS has my full attention with Marlena’s wedding but I’m not sure how long that’ll last and when the show drops off again. Oh well. I read lots of comments here and it’s quite discouraging and makes up my mind to just not bother with the others. I’m not going to waste time slugging through recaps and fast forwarding 3 soaps hours at a time. Our daytime needs a Renaissance. TPTB want them gone. I can’t.

Good song choice. Looking forward to the Nurse’s Ball. Not looking forward to more Shiloh, Monotone Sam, or The Parking Lot FLOP! “Paxie”=ZERO chemistry. I haven’t watched this week. My face would freeze cringing at PLP.

I couldn’t find another site to start my bitching, so this will have to do. Am watching the first day on the red carpet, and of course the whole thing is being ruined for me, with the spotlight being on Nina and all of her stupid ridiculous antics. Reminds me of a freshly caught fish, left to just flounder around. I just wish someone would put her out of her misery! Can’t even enjoy the guests because of her eye rolling, and utter lack of professionalism. Why have they let her ruin something that most of us were looking forward to?

Nina is a bit awkward. The character never seemed to take-off. & The Nina and Willow “dynamic” is SO stupid.

Thanks for your reply. Nina ” a bit awkward?” Don’t get me started, again! Sorry, I can’t stand her anyway, but she was way worse than Lucy Coe’s antics. Seeing as how Lucy was off, trying to seduce Kevin, she couldn’t do her usual shtick, and we got stuck with Nina.

Adorable! He didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed his moves more than the song itself. but what I loved more than anything was the smoke coming out of Shiloh’s rotten ears, even in the video. Can’t wait to see it on TV.

Congrats to GH! You have found great talent in Josh Swickard! But Willow needs to lose the teacher hair and let it flow. Those two can be a new super couple. Shiloh is shallow…

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
