I wanted to comment on Becky Herbst- I am very angry as a fan that they let her go, and I also tune in for her and probably won’t be tuning back in, as far as the other 40 actors, some I do like some I do not, for me it is the stories. I am just not interested anymore, Becky/ Liz was like the last thread holding me on. So in essence you are right something is wrong and it is with the writing and whoever is making these bad decisions. If they want this show to succeed, they… Read more »

I got to tell you…I love Melissa Archer! She is such a sweetheart and a wonderful actress. I know Susan Haskell is a great actress too but I really think that Melissa deserves to get an emmy consideration this year. She has done fabulous work this past year, especially in her scenes with Susan and Michael.

Another fun podcast! Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Dillion! Loved the interviews with Melissa and Chad the most. It is always great to hear about the news and from your perspectives. GH is my favorite soap and yes… I am terribly saddened about Becky Herbst leaving, and there are issues with them writing out the core characters and older characters. However there are so many talented people on that show whith some stellar performances that I agree with Carolyn’s perspective. Becky will get on another show and will make that show very successful. Chad’s performances this week have been so fabulous… Read more »

Hey, Michael. This was another fun pod cast. I can always count on Carolyn to drop her subtle remarks and she is so sharp, plus talented in so many ways…her writing,etc. a very creative person. I thought your guests this month were just perfect. It was especially great to hear from A.Martinez,and to hear he will be back on B&B and as a doctor. I’m thinking maybe the Nick and Stephanie lung cancer story. Whatever it is he is welcome addition. Melissa is such a pretty girl and a terrific actress and I hope she gets an Emmy one day,… Read more »
