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.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
