Wow all these episodes bring back memories. Liz and Lucky (the aftermath of Liz”s rape still breaks me after all these yrs.) Rebecca and Johnthan acted brillantly. If I’m not mistaken (I think Becky got an Emmy nomination and Johnthan won an Emmy). Right Michael ?

I totally forgot this was gonna be on. I started watching in 1995, so I wanted to see some of the earlier episodes from before then, but I guess I missed them. What a great collection of episodes were picked. From the “Clink Boom” episode where Lily dies as Brenda and Jax are getting married, Bobbie finding Carly in bed with Tony, Sonny leaving Brenda at the altar, the Port Charles Hotel Fire, the train wreck, the Metro Court hostage crisis, right up to the Edward memorial episode from last year, that was one of the biggest tear jerkers ever.… Read more »

Some of my friends are sad they can’t watch because SoapNet is only shown on the higher HD subscription ..
Oprah was only on the higher HD superscription and then her network went down to the lower ones also, and she got way more viewers being shown on all the levels.

I would settle for it being on demand…they should have an on demand channel where you can get complete episodes of any avaible show ever made from the 1950s to the present…i wouldnt mind an extra fee for that!

they would have to develop something more like utube to handle so many shows and episodes but i still wish there was a way, since there is so much i miss that is better than whats offered today.

They really missed a huge opportunity! They could have a special GH YouTube site for the anniversayry with all kinds of fun additional stuff. They could have also done something really cool on Hulu where they had a special GH anniverasry site and they could have advertisers put commercials on the site that could be commercials from the last 50 years or had an advertiser that advertised with them let’s say in the 1960’s play commercials for their products spanning the 1960’s through now or just from that era. It could have been a great opportunity for the advertser and… Read more »

Been loving this line-up!!
I’ve watched this show since 1978 and remember so many of these fabulous scenes
so it’s been a super treat to relive them again.
Between BJ dying and Stone dying …. it was a serious hanky day yesterday!
Luke & Laura…. really, can anyone beat them as the best couple in the universe?? Frisco & Felicia .. Victor Cassadine!!! Lovin’ this!! Thank you GH for awesome memories. Happy 50th Anniversary!!

After rewatching some of the old storylines its hard to pick a favorite…most were that good. I like Alexis with Ned but he was better paired Lois. Now i wish Shaun was with Connie while Sonny is with Kate with both men not realizing they are dating the same woman around the same time! A split personailty storyline could be cleverly written that way. Also after the nurses ball why cant we have another ball…the Cassidines Bacchanalia ball that would bring all the Cassidines together and all of Port Charles’ former villians? (Kinda like the nurses ball combined with OLTLs… Read more »

This has been such a trip! Watching the episodes from the lat 70’s and 80’s I’m brought back to my early teens coming back from school and having that hour with my mother and my aunt. I remember them beginning the meal as the show played, predictions of what would happen next and as it ended looking forward to the next day. I realize now that I was looking forward the spending time with these women as much as the watching the episode. As I watch his GH marathon today , I thank Soapnet for the memories it has brought… Read more »

Sunday features my second least favorite era, next to everything of the JFP/Guza era (THE WORST!!!), with the exception of Lucky/Liz and arrival of the FABULOUS Sarah Brown as Carly. Friday and Saturday were quite good, however. Got to see Blackie, Frisco/Felicia, Holly/Robert, Luke/Laura, BJ heart transplant (most moving of all GH storylines), Stone’s death (second most moving). HOWEVER, WHERE WERE DUKE AND ANNA???? Where was Robin’s meeting with Robert? The arrival of evil, scarred Anna? Grant and Celia?? Those were key GH moments that were totally ignored. And last, WHY NO STEVE AND AUDREY!!!!!! Loved seeing the excellent first… Read more »

I heard some of those older episodes were erased or missing…i hope not it would be nice if we could see them again.

Actually a lot of those early episodes HAVE survived, for example, the episode where Steve first proposes to Audrey. In fact, I believe MOST of those episodes have survived and many can be accessed on YouTube. It is just, I would assume, that SoapNet thinks NO ONE cares. Sometime in the late 90s (I think), ABC had a series of afternoon specials during which really old crucial episodes were shown. Reba McIntyre hosted the Steve and Audrey proposal episode and showed the vault where all the old tapes were kept. This is more a reflection of the lack of historical… Read more »

I would love to see any of those episodes from the 60s if around like you say. The 50 episode marathon shouldve have shown ten episodes from each decade it was on from the 1960s to the present.

There some great scenes from 1968 and 1975 on youtube. I had only read the history for I saw those eps. From 1977-79, they forgot the David Hamilton story.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

Now comes word from Lauren to ABC7 in Los Angeles, that her husband is still breathing, but is in hospice care in their home.  She admitted that based on some health issues that happened overnight, she inferred that Tony had passed away when she informed people close to her and the family.
