Problem with GH it is dominated by the Jason show…it started out interesting but soon fizzled-wish Brit stayed for good-i did see some chemistry between here and Jason…weddings on soaps often generated interest and increase viewership back in the day but Laura’s and Kevin’s upcoming wedding or eloping whatever is as interesting as a visit to the dentist office…and why cant homes actually look like real homes…and some of these sets look like showrooms for IKEA!!!……..Days is more interesting but where is The Horton Home…why arent there any office scenes like the top rated CBS soaps have that involve more… Read more »

Is it possible Brit was brought back for that stint just to test the waters before the writers think about bringing her back permanently? I know that’s been done before so it would be more than ok if the Britch did come back to town. I was very happy the moment she was seen.

Steve

It seems they brought Kelly T back because they didn’t want to pay for Anders Hove to fly over for a few episodes. I like Brit, but Faison is unlike any other soap villain.

Similarly, when the Franco memory part was the focus, we got Betsy instead of Heather.

Shay
Guest

Absolutely, James! Britt’s comeback has been one of the best features of the “Q a Deux” storyline, and the previewed scene with her “Mutter Dearest” in tomorrow’s episode looks to be a real highlight of the holiday season! Like you, I truly hope that we shall see “The Britch” return to Port Charles on a more permanent basis, complete with a future visit from her comically-deranged paternal figure, Faison!

I’m looking forward to Laura and Kevin’s wedding. The Jason story has monopolized the show and list my interest. Problem is they have characters, couples and stories that disappear for weeks at a time.

And I think the story of the twin Jasons is just too “far out” –and is without humor or lightness, say, for example, the “freezing of Port Charles” which was really far out but had the strong writing, characters, love story, and “bromance” of Robert and Luke (the real Luke 🙂 )and the humor to carry it off. And, while I’m at it, I’d like to say something about the Alexis and Julian “story”: I think it is in extemely bad taste to get them together again in this cultural revolution, specifically, re the abuse of women. Bad stufff!!!

Ho, ho, ho, Jimmy! The Horton home should be prominent this week. It will definitely be seen Thursday with the annual Horton Ornament Ceremony, which will have at least two new inductees, one of which will be Eli, the first African American Horton family member!

But first, don’t miss the previous episode centering around JJ! His spirit is broken. He’s as fragile as his family’s Christmas ornaments!

Sorry to hear you are not well.

Soaps need good characters to CARE about. That is #1 and always will be for this genre. The characters need good stories and good actors. Days has all 3. For some reason, Ron knows who are boring and keeps them because they are beloved but doesn’t shove them all the time. Hard to explain but there are beloved soap characters who are played by so/so actors but the audience relates. Hope that makes sense. Y&R/B&B have an audience that was watching them back in the day and so far are staying. So, even though they do not interest me, they… Read more »

Last time I checked, Days was still available on Hulu, though depending on your time zone, you might not see it until the next day after it airs. GH is on Hulu as well….. but if you are a cord-cutter (or watch your network TV by antenna) then ABC doesn’t think you have any right to see it until 8 days later. That might be tolerable for a show that airs one episode a week, but for a daily series…. no way in HELL. On the other horn, if you watch ALL your TV shows on a time delayed basis,… Read more »

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: GH’s biggest mistake with the Jason return was focusing solely on that. With lapsed viewers tuning in to see how they resurrected the character, the show should’ve positioned other stories to retain viewer interest once Jason was home. Unfortunately, GH seems to think that Sonny/Carly/Jason/Sam is all anyone wants to watch. I am still baffled how a show with Genie Francis, Finola Hughes, Maura West, and Rebecca Herbst doesn’t put them in strong, frontburner storylines. Mal Young’s Y&R is a complete snooze for me now. The “one episode equals one day”… Read more »

I’m with you. I was so bored with GH for the last 2-3 years, but the last two months I am interested again. No more FF on the DVR through entire episodes. Loving the return of the Quartermaines to prominence (including Jason/Drew, Kim/Oscar, Ned, etc.).

Ok, this is only my opinion. I currently watch only Days of Our lives – since around 2013 or so, because I wanted a Soap to follow (silly though they can be at times) and I missed ALL MY CHILDREN and One Life to Live. If General Hospital wants to gains viewers – START ADDING characters from Pine Valley and Landview to the landscape. ABC-TV now owns the rights to these characters, and while it would be great to see a new inception of either both shows or a combination of shows (I am referring to AMC and OLTL) I… Read more »

Andrew Hass
Guest

I agree that GH could bring on characters from AMC and OLTL.For example GH could bring on David Hayward(Vincent Irizarry) because he’s Anna’s ex-husband and he’s also a doctor that could be hired at the hospital.So the character of David could have both a personal/romantic and professional reason to be on GH.Or GH could bring back Skye because she was on all 3 soaps and she has a history with the Quartermaines.

NO! If you yearn for OLTL or AMC, combine those two shows, leave GH alone!

GH’s big mistake was trying to bring Steve Burton back as Jason Morgan. SB has aged to much to play Jason. The character Jason is supposed to be 36, SB looks to be 50. Also the twin story is just stupid, totally unbelievable. Again….too much age difference between SB & Billy Miller. And the writers constantly rewriting history is a insult to the fans. I am a long time viewer, I cannot stand to watch it anymore, it’s total garbage now. They have finally destroyed the show trying to cater to one actor

Steve
Guest
Steve

This week they established Jason as 42. Monica told Kim the accident with AJ happened in 1995 when Jason was 20. Burton is obviously older than Miller, but they can use the flimsy plastic surgery excuse to explain the difference.

One could argue that the twin storyline has freed Miller from a character he never quite embraced. The last few weeks have featured some of his best acting.

Andrew Hass
Guest
Andrew Hass

Plus i think Billy Miller might enjoy playing Drew more than playing Jason because in a way Drew is a open book since we don’t know much about his past.

Celia

I brough up that exact age “issue” at the onset, Jackie….but, some of our fellow posters reasoned that the age discrepancy was due to Drew’s plastic surgery. Made him younger, don’t you know?!?! LOL. I was so into the story at first….now, the fervor is sort of dissipating. How much longer must I watch Sam tear-stained face in every scene? It hurts to watch. But, my gripe with this show is never changing: Sonny and Carly. The other day, as Carly was giving another one of her so wise, inane motherly speech ( pardon the oxymoron) to Michael, she said… Read more »

Steve Burton IS Jason Morgan. They’re not trying to make him appear younger; if he had never left the show would you have said they need to replace him, he looks too old? Too old for what? I think it’s interesting how people will accept that “Drew” has a completely different face…any soap characters have completely different faces because they had “plastic surgery” in the story…and we just accept, “voila! completely new face!” But we know that all plastic surgery does is lift, tuck, fill…maybe lift a brow change a nose…by point is there’s a lot more incredulous things we… Read more »

GH is getting closer to B&B but will never catch Y&R. DAYS is climbing, look out GH!

Y&R: I like the JT angle. I find it VERY hard that Victor lets his soon Reed walk around looking like a 70’s porn star. Cut your hair boy!

GH: Sorry, I dont want to hurt the kid who plays Oscar’s feelings but this story is too much for him to handle. It needs to be recasted. When you have his mother, Drew and Sam involved, you have to snap and click and this kid is too boring and unsure with his lines.

Bye Felicia. Soap are known to tackle social issues. This storyline isn’t political at all, JJ made a mistake and he feels badly for it – if you’d stick around to see how it plays out you would see its a human issue. It would be political issue if they were talking about the 45th but alas they’re not.

Sigh…hi, dear Harry. You KNOW I disagree when it comes to Franco! He is no longer a sociopath, he is no longer dangerous and he is no longer a threat to anyone. I can completely understand why he doesn’t want Jason around Jake. Franco and Jake have gotten very close; it’s Franco who helped him initially through art therapy. It was Franco who took the time to find out what was bothering Jake; it’s because of Franco that they found out that Helena had programmed Jake…and that Jake was traumatized. Jake has loved Franco for a while now. They’ve bonded.… Read more »

Satan
Guest

The Nielsen ratings system counts US viewers watching on US networks, so there’s probably a separate ratings system in Canada. Your viewing might help City to decide to keep it on the air up there in the Great White North, however. Because, if a Devil recalls correctly, GH used to air on the CTV network up there, and they bailed out, for some reason. Would hate to see City do the same thing.

Days airs on the Global network up there, right?

I can’t wait to watch Days first except for Fridays if I can hold out to Monday and avoid the weekend cliffhangers.
