This morning Soap Opera Digest broke the news that General Hosptial’s head scribe Bob Guza was on his way out at the number one ABC sudser, but now comes word from SOD that according to a GH spokesperson, Guza is NOT out and leaving the show.  ABC Soaps In Depth also learned through mutliple sources that Guza is not exiting the series. 

Many fans have been unhappy with the writing of General Hospital in recent years. So, could the powers-that-be been considering pulling the plug on Guza and starting fresh with a new leader?  We will keep you posted on this developing story.

Well, after this tragic and senseless story that is playing out right now with Jason and Elizabeth’s son, Jake, I won’t be shedding a tear with this GH decision.

I hope this is true because it would be one down and two to go!! I believe that Guza was forced to do some things because of Mr. Frons. Instead of stories flowing like they should, he was forced to write for characters that most of the viewers would rather not watch. Look at the ratings for the last couple of years. People left because of what I believe to be agenda dictated stories. Until agenda is forbidden at GH, it won’t matter whom is writing the stories.

I don’t for one second believe it was Guza with this Jake storyline. AMC sucks majorly, OLTL’s the only good one. Guza only affects GH. What the network SHOULD do is fire Frons.

My problem with Guza is he seems to have forgotten the issues of continuity and consistancy between character’s history and storyline. Right now., the characters and storylines are messed up and inconsistant. If the storylines are more consistant and complete, long time viewers may return.

I find it interesting that GH promotes its gotta watch moments, but then the actual script is so awful. Yesterday’s episode was nothing more than lead ins to moments that were not even filmed and we got told about later. And today, while I was involved with what was happening, I felt like the writer’s completely dropped the ball on what are gut wrenching storylines. I am super grateful that GH has such an extraordinary cast. For God’s sake! Use this magnificent cast and let everyone know that daytime serials are not dead.

Ok, now comes word Carly wants Sam to give Jason a son! Who did not see this one coming? So we have criminals having a baby, if you are not in Jason & Sonnys world you do not matter to this writing staff, after the scenes of Jakes death next week I will permantly dropped it from my DVR. Trying to force a pairing like Jason and Sam on us is too much why kill a child to do it. Liz an Jason had not shared a scene in how long?

Guza should have been gone long ago. The “Jake” story is the last straw for me, I can no longer watch this mess.

Killing off another Quartermaine and the potential for great storytelling for years ahead was very short sighted by the writers and PTB. In a year or so, Jake could have been aged enough to be a handful for Jason/Lucky and Liz and bound the Spencers, Webers and Quartermaines. The appeal of soaps is the families. GH has always had a mob or spy story, that makes it exciting. I’ve been a faithful viewer since day one. Killing off Jake has killed off my desire to continue to watch. Out of the blue Josyln has kidney cancer? Forget about it.

So, I started watching GH again 2 years ago, after dropping it when they started putting Jason and Elizabeth together. I could not stand those two! I have been really enjoying it. I can’t wait everyday to go home get my stuff done so I can climb in bed and watch GH!! I like the pace and although some of the storylines seem to be a retool of older plots I’m still really enjoying it! I can’t be the only one!!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
