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!!

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
