Congratulations to GH. This Jason(s) story has been really good so far. They deserve to see that bump!

Days is the most improved soap at the moment…GH is somewhat better and i am tuning in more to both…glad Days is on Demand as i have too many medical appointments during the day !!!…i watch Y&R sometimes and enjoy that too!!!…just never could connect to Bold…

On Days it would had made more sense had Sami used Sonny and Will’s daughter Arianna to help jar Will’s memory instead of Will’s ‘killer’ Ben-i wouldnt want Ben anywhere near me!!!

Celia
Guest

I guess, Jimmy. You do have a point. But, after thinking about it, Will needs to relive the traumatic, horrifying experience to jar his memory. Ben is the only one who can do that.
So, maybe that’s why Ben is key to open those memories. But, Will and Ben can’t be alone together, LOL.

Amen, Fanny! This is all down to “The Burton Effect,” plain and simple! Not only did Steve’s return itself bring in more viewers, but the pivot back to other legacy players and storylines via his character has also had a huge impact upon the increasing ratings/satisfaction with GH. But that’s not to say that there’s no room left for far more improvement….Too many failed newbie characters of the past few years still remain in Port Charles and the moment they appear onscreen it’s back to square one all over again—no matter how much unsuccessful propping and shoehorning happens to try… Read more »

@Fanny….I do think that Jessica Tuck’s Cassandra has the potential to be a superb antagonist in the traditional soap opera sense, especially if she turns out to be Helena’s daughter…..I really hope that in her quest for Valentin she will end up being the instrument of evil that rids Port Charles of Nina once and for all!

Fanny

@Shay…Can you imagine, yet another one of Helena’s offsprings…
a wrecking ball let loose on Port Charles. JT’s Cassandra could
pull it off.
P.S. Timmm’s right.. Chet’s got to go, maybe Amy can pack 4 both
of them and escort out of our orbit.

Oh, Fanny….I LOVE the idea of Cassandra being Helena’s progeny and carrying on her with her mission of destruction in Port Charles…provided the “Ice Queen’s” so-called demise is indeed a sad fact. (And I’m sincerely hoping it is not and that she is merely hibernating in some form of Cassadine-induced limbo for the duration…) Having said that, I actually like “Chet the Vet,” sans his overbearing sis, that is! It looks like maybe he is going to be on his best behavior from here on out, so perhaps we will find more appealing qualities to his character in the near… Read more »

GH ratings have always improved with vets. They first showed a real and sustained improvement in Fall of 2012 when AJ came back, then the rescue of Duke that included Robert, the 50th anniversary, Robin’s return and now Steve Burton. It isn’t just about the one actor or character but all the connections and history. That’s what soaps have to offer and it’s time GH gets it straight. All the new actors and new characters just don’t cut it. Steve Burton is a GH icon. Jason Morgan is an iconic GH character with tons of connections across the canvas, even… Read more »

Yes, vets and key legacy characters are important to a show’s success, but new characters – when tied to core families – can work properly. And good actors can keep viewers intrigued with newer characters (as much horrible things that Ava has done, Maura West is quite often captivating to watch.) There needs to be a good balance. As a long time viewer, I’m happy to see Monica or Scotty once or twice a week, regardless of story. It’s when we get 4 days of Nina or Franco in one week and Mac and Felicia once a month that the… Read more »

@Steve….It’s been pure heaven watching Monica front and center during the return of Steve Burton to the GH canvas….Her re-emerging presence really brings back the feeling this soap used to evoke, especially with the inclusion of all those vintage clips! (We need more such reminders of how relevant the remaining legacy characters are to modern day Port Charles….) Of course, that bliss quickly fades whenever the show swings back to the unwelcome antics of Nina, Nurse Amy, Jordan, Aunt Stella and yes, even the pigheaded, Julian-obsessed Alexis who has learned zilch from her previous amorous catastrophes. Talk about redundant! As… Read more »

Stunning post, Steve. As you know, I don’t know much about GH history….but, logic plays a big part in penning a story. I, as anyone else, love the vets, yes. But, a soap is a living, ever-changing, pulsating story …..and, as such, new characters are vitally important when introducing fresh blood and fresh plotlines. Change is necessary ….part of nature. A story should cater to one and all, regardless of age. As far as the two Jasons, I am beginning to get fidgety….impatient? Yeah, that’s moi. I trust TPTB to use timely discretion; pardon the pun.

I don’t think it really matters if Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) is really Drew who was switched 20 years ago. He would STILL be the Jason Morgan/Quartermaine that we watched all those years… a rose by any other name is still a rose. It’s a technicality. If Billy Miller’s Jason was the Jason before his car accident with AJ…well…it would make sense that he wasn’t as keen on the business as Burton’s Jason and is different than the Jason Carly, Sonny and Sam knew. Billy Miller original Jason Q before car accident…before he became Jason Morgan, before he got involved… Read more »

Thanks, Fanny. LOL…but I do think it would make a difference if Steve was playing both roles. A lot of fans are more interested in “Steve Burton” being Jason…then which “twin” is actually Jason.

Satan
Guest

It doesn’t make sense because Jason had a piece of AJ’s dashboard surgically removed from his brain in early 2012. It would not have been there if he had not been in that accident with his drunken brother. It’s actually a better story for Billy Miller & his fans if he’s a completely new character who has to find out what happened to him between the time Frodd threw him down the stairs as a child, and when Robin thawed him out in the Crichton Clark lab in 2014. As for Steve playing both roles, he probably will be, to… Read more »

The story of Jason Morgan is that he is Jason Quartermaine. He was injured in an accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused amnesia and altered his personality. He then shunned his family who wanted him to be the person he was, who he could not remember being and he took up with the town mob boss and became his enforcer. The child of privilege, the golden boy was now a mobster who could not remember his previous life and his family and it tore them up.

AJQ There is no set rule in soaps. Saying that if Billy Miller’s Jason is the real Jason would ruin everything would obviously ruin it for you, andd I’m sure many others. For me? And I bet others, it wouldn’t ruin a thing. I expect twists and turns in soaps. And saying if we change which twin is the real Jason then all the characters would have been duped…yeah….it does! Isn’t that the point?.” But that doesn’t mean their emotions weren’t real at the time, every single reaction etc was real for the friend/son/husband they thought he was. It’s like… Read more »

One could argue that those tuning back in (especially in the 18-49 demo) know only of Steve Burton from the days when it was the Sonny/Carly/Jason show and Jason had little interaction with the Q’s. I will agree that the character of Jason is unlike any in daytime history. That said, it allows for storylines that haven’t been tried before. To lure Steve Burton back, they had to sell him a story that would intrigue him. If he is indeed both Jason Quartermaine and Morgan, end of story and he’s back to being Sonny’s right hand. Whoever turns out is… Read more »

I commented on this in another thread and agree this would just kill the story and character of Jason Morgan. rebecca 1, no the point isn’t for characters to be duped. This twist and turn stuff seems like nonsense to me and thinking you were in love with someone and thinking someone was actually a completely different person is nothing a like. As stated above and very well, that Jason Morgan is Jason Q was the story. Change that and you do ruin everything. It is ridiculous.

It seems that his return started good writing which has been absent for quite a while. There is some top of the line acting on GH and these stars were holding the show from being axed w/o good writing! I hope the writing continues to improve for everyone and NOT just for one person.

Boy, these soaps are skewing older and older all the time. The 4 long-running daytime soaps cancelled since 2009 all got better demographic numbers than these toward the end. IMO, these shows must find some way to evolve with fresher, more realistic storytelling circa 2017 and maybe with some kind of different production model (not 5x/ week, 52 weeks/yr) if they’re going to have any real hope of connecting with and holding younger generations into the next decade. To be #1 among 4 current soaps with those numbers is anything but an accomplishment. GH is simply the best of the… Read more »

The high ratings numbers will never come back as viewing options increase. Primetime Network TV has declined in higher percentages over the last 10 years than daytime. A review of the production model is a good idea, as long as the DAYS version doesn’t become standard. A 5-month window from tape to air date doesn’t allow for adjustment to storylines that aren’t working. As ratings have gone down, so have budgets — and the shows have made adjustments. Perhaps the future is all recurring characters or short term contracts. Regardless, GH should be commended for upping their game the past… Read more »

Great story, powerful performances by all, perfect recipe for ratings to soar. This is what soap drama is all about, when you get a story line that is so epic that it makes you have to tune it everyday. This was missing from my GH screen for awhile but lately all characters and actors on canvas are bringing their A-Game, my only complaint is that I miss Rebecca Budig and wish Hayden didn’t leave Port Charles, hoping she will someday return. Keep up the good work GH, you have made me one happy soap fan!

Steve
Guest

The only way Budig probably returns would be temporarily to help usher Easton out if he chooses not to renew his contract. I’m on the fence with Finn and Anna, which is actually better than a month ago when I was not a fan. Hughes usually brings out the best in her screen partners.

the Jason story is driving viewers back to GH,Days has improved but it may be hard to bring viewers back that left during previous regimes. the two cbs soaps are the two worst soaps at the moment.

Shelly could have been a good balancer with Ron as well. But Fanny is right, ratings were diving with Fluke, Denise Demuccio and other lackluster storylines. Add to that his childish treatment of Sean Kanan and his fate was sealed.

Some intriguing casting news has former Days of our Lives star, Christopher Sean (Ex-Paul Narita) being part of 12 casting additions to the upcoming third season of Netflix’s drama, You.

Kiki is played by former Good Trouble star, Shannon Chan-Kent.  According to the breakdown from Deadline, “Kiki is a devoted member of Sherry’s cliquish “mean girl” friend group. She is a wife, mother and life coach who enjoys a life of entitlement, frequenting mid-day fitness classes and enjoying lengthy gossip sessions at the local cafe.”

Days Of Our Lives

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.
