Yes I will check it out. “The Stafford Project” was really good. Hopefully this will hold up. It cannot be any worse than NINA CLAY!

Timm–what is going on with that? I go back to watching GH on a regular basis in order to watch Laura’s grand return and suddenly I am being force fed Clay.
I feel like Charlie Brown trick or treating and instead of getting Laura, I get a bag of rocks (NIna).

Thats funny Harry. I would have let Tracy and Luke’s party alone and had a messenger drop Luke a telegram letting him know he needs to leave right away and meet up with her. Its a life and death matter.[ Have Genie start the adventure herself.] Luke could let Tracy down in private and not in front of their guests! In other words, Genie’ first day entrance was horrible! As for Nina, I love Michelle and Roger together but again, the writing is horrible. Why split her and Franco up. They were so juicy together walking on the edge of the law. Nina and Ric are horrible together. I’m sure its because of Madeline being back and remarkably serving VERY little time! Harry, if you every break the law make sure to mention your friends in Port Charles. You’ll be released and home before dinner!

Nina Clay??? Michelle is phenomenonal…love the quirkiness of Nina…she is a great comedian love her. You have to step back and remember so much of her character is because she lost 20 yrs and she is basically finding her way through all of lives changes. Plus her and Roger have such chemistry ❤️

I’m with you Jake from NJ, I like Michelle Stafford as Nina. I really loved her antics when she first started and was “bound” to that wheelchair, her and Rosalie were great together, it was nice to see them reunited in a scene recently over the ELQ shares. Though, as much as I love Roger, too, sometimes, I find Nina & Franco scenes to be too quirky. I’m glad Nina had scenes with Silas this past week at the Floating Rib, I loved the balance between Silas and Nina, and I think Michelle Stafford and Michael Easton just have an undeniable chemistry. There’s something there, and I’m so hoping the show will re-explore that relationship. 20 years in a coma, there’s probably more to that story, with Madeline… anything is possible. I do like when Michelle and Roger work together, but I find that it’s becoming too much with their characters, sometimes.
And, I really loved Nina and Silas scenes!!!
Michelle & Michael made me wanting to see more of Nina & Silas, I can’t say that about Nina and Franco.

Well Jake, you do make a good point about her trying to find her way after 20 years.

What happened to the “wildly successful” The Stafford Project?

I watched a couple of episodes of it. They were “okay” but way too short.

I like Stafford very much and am glad to read that she appears to be in demand. However, I find the use of the phrase “wildly successful” to describe her prior web series to be strange and possibly not accurate. If it was so successful, why is she not making more episodes of it instead of this new venture. Also, if so successful, why hasn’t there been any mention of it by her (or this site) in quite a while?

I appreciate the effort that goes into this website and value the news that I read here. However, there frequently are instances an article gives me the impression that the website is not always giving a completely impartial view of the soap genre but, rather, is almost a public relations site for what is being discussed. The use of “wildly successful” is an example of this.

She is great as Nina Clay, ans i agree with the comments above about Nina and Silas. They seem to be sparkeling now!! He is so cool-like that it balances out the high energy vibe that Nina sends. I would be curious to see what would a Sonny and Nina fling be like?! Hmm i wonder if they would dare go there…I secretly am hoping that they try Sonny and Hayden when she wakes up.

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.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
