A Christmas Carol, is cool..
it’s never been left out of the Christmas line up.
Every Christmas ”Scrooge” appears, without fail.
but– Krampus, what about Krampus!! is cool also!
Michael Easton as Ebenezer Scrooge is right on..
None better to be chosen for the role.
GH having Easton as Scrooge; two thumbs up!!!

((((what would be awesome!! Krampus vs Scrooge!! lol

This should be fun. GH always does these special stand alone episodes very well. You can never go wrong with the Charles Dickens classic. My favorite versions were the TV movie where George C. Scott played Scrooge, and the animated Disney version “Mickey’s Christmas Carol”, a childhood favorite from growing up in the 80s that I still watch every holiday season to this day. Glad to see them give Michael Easton a feature episode. I saw Kathleen Gati and Eden McCoy raving about him as Scrooge on Twitter, so I’m really looking forward to this.

Looks good but shouldnt someone like Valentin been Scrooge…or even Sonny or Julian…using a villain would make more sense!!!

Valentin finds Windemere abandon and in ruins…Nicholas the ghost from Christmas Past…Nina the one he lost…Laura warning him he better change, showing him Lulu in an insane asylum after keeping her daughter from him…..Dr. Lisel as death showing Valentin his life in Hell…with Satan-Cassandra or

I’d be willing to show up and play myself to show old Val the Bastard what Hell is really like. And… based on rumors I’ve heard lately, he should also be visited by Dante as “The Ghost of Charlotte Ain’t Your Damn Kid and She Never Was”.

Looks fun and lushly done. Looking forward to seeing it.

This blasted impeachment better not interrupt my soaps that day or I’ll be looking to give the boot to more than just one person. Leave our soaps alone!

I think you can safely assume that ImOrangement proceedings will not be taking place next week. The one thing you can depend on Congress always doing is taking off as many Helliday vacation days as they can get away with.

Now having said that, I really wish a supposed “General Hospital” Xmas episode wasn’t centered on the OLTL interlopers.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
