With protocols in place during the coronavirus pandemic, ABC’s General Hospital last week returned to taping all-new episodes at their studios in Los Angeles.

It has always been about safety face for the cast, crew and more that make Port Charles a place that millions of viewers have come to love over five and a half decades.

On Monday night, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) shared on her Twitter account her thoughts on her first day back to work and to filming on the set, and to let all of her fans know it all is looking A-OK.

Nancy expressed: “1st day back. The uncompromising detail & apparent hard work of all involved have my deepest respect. I felt safe, protected & more importantly that my being there was safe for others. Organizing this took epic care & I applaud all involved @GeneralHospital @Disney @ABCNetwork”

General Hospital follows The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless who now have all gone back to taping new shows, as well,  (DAYS is targeting a September 1st return, but has episodes through mid-October banked).’

In addition, GH will begin airing new episodes next week on Monday ,August 3rd; which has come as wonderful news to fans of the series who have been watching encore presentations over the last several months,

So, happy to hear from Nancy on GH’s safe return for cast and crew?  Comment below.

This is good news! Now that all of the daytime drama’s are back to work (DOOL starts taping again in September), they are not the only show’s that have gone back to taping and airing new episodes. So has ‘Restaurant Impossible’ that stars Chef Robert Irvine on the Food Network. That show starts airing new episodes on Thursday night this week. Very much looking forward to that!

I don’t watch the cooking shows very often, but it seems to me that those would be the easiest thing to produce even in a pandemic. The chef usually works alone, and odds are they all have a decent kitchen in their homes, so it would be just as easy to film from there.

I am sure everyone will be fine unless you have underlying health issues you will survive it is not a death sentence everyone I know who has contacted it have survived the mass hysteria is nuts let’s move on take the precautions and let’s get living again ! Never have I seen such fear and it’s nuts I can’t stand the media they should be ashamed of themselves

k/Kay…And I’m sure your comment is great solace to all of the mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, husbands and wives who have lost a loved one of the 150,000+ deaths by today’s count…the highest in the world. If anyone is nuts it’s those who have never taken this seriously since day one and even now do not show the decency or leadership to protect their fellow citizens let alone themselves.

150,000 people have died. The man occupying the White House said 15 people would get the Coronavirus and then it would magically disappear. He suggested people inject themselves with disinfectant to kill the virus. He pushed the views of a doctor that says the government is using Alien DNA to treat Coronavirus patients, and that Ovarian Cancer is caused by women having sex in their dreams with witches and demons. Someone should be ashamed of themselves, and it’s not the media.

For the record, I’ve asked around the office, and none of the demons here have any idea what that crazy “doctor” is babbling about.

“Everyone I know who has contacted it have survived.” That is the most self-centered American (or human) viewpoint I know. “Just because it hasn’t affected me or my circle, it’s not worth worrying about.” The world is so much bigger than each person’s little corner of it. Be GRATEFUL that your friends/family have survived. PRAY and BE COMPASSIONATE toward the many people unknown to you who have suffered a terrible loss. And DO WHAT YOU CAN to make sure that you can continue to say everyone you know has survived. Peace.

So KKK, according to you, it’s ok for people who have underlying health issues to die? What the hell is wrong with you? It is not an innocent opinion. It is hate speech. The world has enough hate. We don’t need it here too.

Herman Cain went to the Tulsa Nuremberg rally in late June and bragged about how he and most others there weren’t wearing masks, and how it was all a hoax. By July 3 he was in the hospital. Herman Cain got out of the hospital today. He’s currently in my office, filling out Hell’s standard 666 page immigration forms. He got that fresh hot Covid 19 death pizza delivered in 30 days or less. Now Louie Gohmert (dumbest mortal in the US congress) might be looking at a similar fate. And those are just the names you know. There is… Read more »

JESUS take the wheel and your social media accounts. There are long lasting health issues due to contracting the coronavirus. It’s not the common cold you can just shrug off. And even to much of that takes it till whether you know it or not. All illness takes a lasting toll on the body. This one more than others. I just can’t.

Get over yourselves You sure have no problem with people burning and destroying businesses t hat are operated by black lives that are making a living ! Do you have any idea how many lives you have destroyed ??? I bet not because it’s not In your narrative ! I have heard enough but no I will not ever post here again

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
