This Is Us- is a good one.
It is different and that is a good thing.
I’ll be binge-watching through the upcoming 3 years.

It will be interesting to see it holds its steam.

((in like a lion out like a lamb)) ?? time will tell.
So far, it rocks!

I drifted away after 2 seasons. Just lost interest in the characters repeating the same lines and making the same silly decisions. But, having said that, I know what it’s like when you’re hooked on a series so a hearty congratulations to the actors and three cheers for all the fans.

I love the show. Oh good I get to see Justin Hartley for three more years.I hope he does some more comedies. Loved him in Bad Mom’s Christmas, he is one heck of a sexy and talented man.There have been times when the show has made me cry. I love Kevin.Who wouldn’t?I can feel his pain.Yes there are even times when he has made me cry. I can also relate to the depression story.It can be bad at times.Love Chrissy Metz too.

Story story story. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us care. And do not stay to long at the fair! Hopefully NBC/writers are writing with an ending in mind…it will be more of an impact knowing there is a road map. Beginning, middle,and an end. Keep us wanting more and loving the show as it ends the 6th season.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
