Wait – isn’t Brytni Sarpy also coming back as Valerie? I say that Kristina will return without Parker (which is good) and will explore her prior flirtation with Valerie.

This is exactly what I was thinking, too. Both come back at separate times, but they both pursue something within time.

With Dante gone and the search ongoing for a new Jordan, Valerie might be fulfilling some PCPD duties, as Chase can’t do it all.

Chase hasnt done anything yet!

One can hope. I thought they were a better pairing than Krissy and a woman old enough to be her mother. Even if they were only pretending to be a couple.

Well, in the tradition of Sonny & Carly and Dante & Lulu, I think another Corinthos/Spencer pairing is a Most Unholy idea!

Debbie

I hope she get to stay longer then 5 minutes, every time they bring back, they put on the back burner instead writing a good story line for her. Chase would be a good match.

Hope Parker is left behind.!!!

Very glad Lexi is back but I wish Ashley Jones would come with her as Parker. It could happen down the road/

And I thought GH couldn’t get any more boring. Apparently I was wrong. Bad acting does win out. Every daytime actor has gotten an Emmy so it’s not a big deal any more.

That’s not true. I don’t think Kristin Storms has won an Emmy and we all love her.

I am proud to include myself as one of the many Pristina fans who have emailed, tweeted, and all out shouted loud and proud that we want Ashley Jones and Lexi Ainsworth on the air, online, and on-screen at General Hospital. These are 2 amazing actresses with too compelling a story to tell from a closet in Oregon. For over 50 years, soap operas have been a source of entertainment and enlightenment especially in regards to real life issues; medical/mental problems, political climates, sexuality, corporate avenues, etc. Now we have the LGBTQ community up in arms for the same amount of coverage and exposure as we’ve expected from many male/female power couples in the past and present. To the powers that be Frank Valentini and Nathan Varni, you’ve made a small gesture in saving whatever faces you have. Care to try your luck and make another one; bring back Ashley Jones WITH Lexi Ainsworth on the air, online, & on-screen at General Hospital.
These 9 months have been hell for a lot of passionate people because of the lack of respect for the soap opera vets, and the countless FV and NV pets/newbies crammed down our throats, and I’d like to think that time has ran out of Frank Valentini and Nathan Varni. But for right now, I’ll take a small victory and finish by saying, ‘My name is Tom Beavin and I am a soap fan.’

Tom, I was not going to respond to this particular Michael Fairman’s blog until I read your thoughtful,insightful and well written response. However, here is my problem with the Parker/Kristina story line. We didn’t see these two fall in love, we didn’t see Kristina crushing on Parker in the college classroom. If we saw it develop and flourish, then maybe, just maybe, we’d be supporting Kristina all the way. But what GH is doing as of late is pushing the PC story plot point ahead of character development. For instance, we meet a beautiful woman named Terry who is a transgender and before we meet her, we are privy to a rapid Sparks Note introduction to her delivered to us by Lizzy, who knew Terry in middle school. We aren’t allowed to get to know Terry before we know that she is in transition. Today, GH had a whole segment devoted to the Me Too movement. Do not get me wrong—I am all for the Me Too movement but using it as a plot device came off as preachy and boring. In fact, I fast forwarded through the whole thing. What I am trying to say is if the writers are going to tackle a PC topic, they must do so in such a way as to put the character first, and this particular plot device later. How to do it? Check out Bianca coming out to her mother Erica on AMC. Or Cindy, telling Stuart, the love of her life, that she has AIDS, To deliver effective story telling which incorporates PC issues of the say, the viewers MUST first care about the characters involved. Otherwise, it will not work.

harry..well said…its why im tuning out once Nelle;s story ends…the late Agnes Nixon would had written the Me2 thing as someting to remember and think about…GH is in a terrible state…too much focus on Parking Lot Peter…

Hopefully they will do exactly that with Valerie and Kristina

Harry, I agree with you re character development.

Beautifully expressed, Harry…..I, especially, love your comparisons to my other favorite soap (AMC), now defunct.

Nothing gets developed anymore Harry! Frank just pushes a social issue to try and get press and then he doesnt follow up on it. However, they did a nice service with the Kiki movement. The words were good and the scenes were shoot with some imagination. Where was Liz?

Holding onto Franco’s leash. I wonder if the poor man gets to go to the restroom alone? At least he was willing to help Jason get Carly away from Dr. Frankenstein, without Liz’s permission. Am not a Carly fan, but no one should have to be subject to what he was doing to her. I was surprised Nurse Ratched didn’t push for a lobotomy, she hates Carly that much.

Harry

Thanks everybody! And now I am opening my umbrella. Why, you might ask? Because I am about to say something which is politically incorrect, and and I want shield myself from the incoming rotten tomatoes. Ava talking about her Me Too movement had me laughing. Because with Ava you just know she was on the other side of the Me Too movement. In fact, while Ava was delivering her Me too memories you just gotta know that simultaneously somewhere in America there is a group of men who worked in an art gallery talking about their own Me Too moment. And the star of their Me Too moment? Yes, you got it-Ava Jerome.

Shay
Shay

No tomatoes here, Harry, rotten….or otherwise!!! You have ably nailed the very essence of that voracious predator of male flesh, Ava Jerome! Just as you aptly called the prior situation, which I also attempted to applaud, echo and expound upon given your previously well-put thoughts. However, my honest critique apparently was deemed not acceptable, even though my view of the storyline and the return of the particular character was strikingly similar to most here and was far more about the who, than the what. Ditto for CeeCee’s “aura” remarks…which were spot on!!!!

Timmm
Timmm

The ME TOO movement gets watered down by weak history. Take Les Moonves, 20 years ago he said something that was unacceptable TODAY and all the Libs want his ass! BULLSHIT! Did he drug someone? Rape them? Kill them? NO! Why cause trouble in this mans life? Albeit, a fabulous one, he does have a wife and kids, leave him be!

I’ve never liked Kristina and couldn’t care less if she comes back. You wanna bring someone back, start with Genie Francis.

Agreed

Violet Lemm

Can’t stand that snippy, snotty Kristina, and hope she leaves Mama Morgan in Oregon. I also didn’t like Valerie before, so guess I’ll be liking her a lot less, when she hooks up with Krissy.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Thanks, Violet. I was beginning to feel very lonely in my dislike of Valerie. I didn’t click with her since day one and the affair with Dante certainly didn’t help endear her to me. Instead of her, how about bringing Brandon Barash back as sexy bad boy Johnny Zacchara. Make him a nice guy now if they have to…it’s working for Julian. Cheers!

Violet Lemm

Soaphound, they can bring Johnny back any way, shape or form. Love that guy?

That’s pretty much it….in a nutshell!

I thought I was the only one who didn’t care for this character-she’s the female Morgan, a petulant, spoiled brat. NO. THANK. YOU.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh dmr, what is it about Sonny’s biological kids..All are self-centered, all are impatient narcissists…where do you think they get it? At least Bryan Craig was a sexy,talented actor whom I occasionally miss. But I don’t miss the character.

Violet Lemm

There is an old country song that fits these Corinthos kids, which includes Molly, called, Its Hard To Be Humble When You’re Perfect In Every Way.

True but better than snobby Molly!

I also want Genie back! Guess she is still smarting about the many times they have shafted her.

Celia

Genie was mentioned today, Soaphound. That’s a good sign, right? I hope so…..Miss that beautiful face a smile!!

Timmm
Timmm

If I were Genie, I would not return UNLESS they offered her a contract! Enough of this back and forth bull crap!

Celia
Celia

Yeah, T…..that’s exactly what needs to be done. Poor Genie probably feels in limbo—-neither here nor there.

Harry
Harry

Well, hmmm…. I was thinking that maybe Lulu gets in contact with her mother only to discover that Kevin did not visit her in Paris as he claimed. We saw a man in a straight jacket through the bleary, blurry perspective of a overly medicated Carly, who bore a strong semblance to Kevin…or Ryan. Who was that man in a straight jacket?

Shay

AMEN!!!!!!

Gerry

No big deal, I hate her character lol.

Celia

I really can’t pin-point the reasoning, Gerry, but I didn’t likevKristina either. I thought dhe had a very negative aura.
I liked the previous portrayer so much!! I don’t remember her name, but she was on when I started watching GH.
She had flair, and a well-defined personality

Jimh

Not interested in her character-she is as boring as Morgan

All I can say is thank you soap gods! Best news I’ve heard out of GH in a long time!

I hope Parker comes back to because I would rather see Valerie with a hot guy.

Valerie and Chase would make one gorgeous couple!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
