The NEW General Hospital Shorter Opening Title Sequence – Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital viewers were given a shortened opening title sequence and in this version it featured only existing characters on the canvas (because so many in the long opening sequence are no longer with the series).  There was a new selection of theme music featured that to us harkened back to one of the short openings back in the shows sister soap days, Port Charles!

When watching the opening, the cast moves by the screen very quickly, that you actually have to watch one or two times to see who made it into the mix. In addition, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) had tweeted that the opening sequence will change daily – we presume with different characters and actors being featured and perhaps different musical beds.

So take a look at the new opening after the jump and let us know your thoughts! We know how important show openings are to true soap fans!

miss longer theme…gave it a chance

Thanks to the mannings!!!

Thumbs up…I’m pretty sure we got 8 segments rather than 7 and therefore more show.

ITA anyhow I also am happy with the changes made so far. We need ratings to survive and I want GH to survive after 45 yrs of watching.

Carlton

I agree with you, Dawn. I also like the changes that former Head Writer of OLTL has done since he took over Robert Guza and Jill Phelps(Who I think did a PRETTY DAMN GOOD JOB as Head Writer and Executive Producer respectively before stepping down). He went to the biggest change in Soap Opera history by bringing 4 of the OUTSTANDING actors from One Life To Live to join(and heat things up) General Hospital. Now that tells you that GH isn’t going ANYWHERE!

That was really stupid!!! It didn’t even have any of the General Hospital music. My second favourite of all of the soap themes.

I like the opening. It really is not important to me in relationship to keeping GH on the air. If it is shortened by 1-2 minutes – that leaves more time for advertisement ($$) and story.

I don’t like the new sequence, especially the new music. I understand we have OLTLivers on the show now, but it is still General Hospital. This feels like a slap in my face. GH needs to keep it’s music. Just wrong on the part of ABC.

1MALLOYFAN
1MALLOYFAN

I agree about the music. The sequences seem so rushed but we know who everyone is so that is minor. But the theme is most important because it identifies with what GH is to us. “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”

Carol

Don’t see why you’re blaming THIS on OLTL’s cast. OLTL kept their full opening for the entire run, didn’t shorten it or change it at all. It has NOTHING to do with the few people that are migrating from OL.

Christy
Christy

hmmm, actually OLTL changed their opening many times…. every time another producer came around, or ABC was making changes. Many times, it was just an image of a sunset, flames, or sky or such. Later they did ones with moving images of streets, houses, a shot of a newsstand, then later with the actors faces, you can find these online if you’re curious. They changed the music too.

DCCowgirl4Eva
DCCowgirl4Eva

Read my post again. I am not BLAMING the OLTL cast at all, I said “… wrong on the part of ABC.” I miss my General Hospital theme and want it back.

Torrey

I agree Carol. I’m getting tired of the OLTL characters getting blamed for everything that long-time GH viewers aren’t happy with. This is a change to try and help save this show from cancellation. If nothing was being done, they would complain about that saying, “No one cares or is trying to save the show.” To blame actors for the change in an opening sequence is just stupid. Have never been a GH fan, but I have been watching to try and support the show, but if the long-time fans aren’t going to be appreciative of the OLTL fans or the characters that have joined to help preserve this institution…..then why the hell am I watching? Maybe if they were to feel the loss that all of the AMC & OLTL fans have felt, they would change their tune….

Jamie

I have to say that as of right now, I am not a fan
Of the new opening. If you are putting the Mannings
On the front burner they deserve to be in the opening
Sequence. Also, you omitted so many from it. Please go back
To the original music to. That is General Hospital.

1loveabcsoaps
1loveabcsoaps

4 out of 5 posted before mine…..say THUMBS DOWN, and I make 5.

Why fix it, if it ain’t broken? All they needed to do was take out cast member’s who are no longer on the show (and it’s a few of them) up to Kristina. After that, everything would of been just fine.

Please TAKE OUT OLD CAST, and GO BACK to the original format.

THUMBS DOWN!

Matt

I hope this is a work in progress. The whole opening sequence needs to be redone and making it whiplash fast doesn’t get past the bad video quality or cheesy local news anchor-style posing.

The faces go by so quickly!!!!!!!!! They don’t give you na chance to see the actors names that match up with the faces….It goes threw too fast for me.. I don’t like it at all !!!!!!!!!!!! At least when OLTL was on you could read the names with the face .. Different isn’t better!!!!!!!!!! Not in this case anyway…

WhitbyTerry

This felt like “make the opening cheap and simple”. I’d rather they created a CG version of the opening used in the 80s compared to this. The last opening was okay, Faces of the Heart was better.

Did anyone notice that GH went an extra 2 minutes?? So in reality, we are getting less opening credits, but more air time. I will take the air time.
Especially if the writing continues as it has.

Mitchell1660

That’s exactly right. Truncated opening means more story. Fine with me.

Debi

Ditto. Who cares about an opening?? Lets see such good story!! 🙂

Jon Jensen
Jon Jensen

Horrible. Faces of the Heart is General Hospital. This was disturbing and looked choppy, rushed, and unprofessional. I think that if they wanted something shorter, a well produced remake of the “Siren” opening from the 80’s would have been great. Also, why was the music bed different for the on air show compared to the SOAPnet version which aired at night?

Emily
Emily

I don’t like it either. I liked the jazzy, elevator type of music they had. It flowed.

Robin

Exactly!!!

Although I did not particularly care for the new music, I also don’t find it that important right now to complain about it. If the shortened sequence means more story and $$ from advertisers, then I’m all for it. I’m more concerned about GH improving storywise and hopefully staying on our tvs.

Thumbs DOWN!!! Especially if we do not get more show minutes to replace it.

Didn’t care for it. The music sounds like the news!!! I don’t mind it being shorter but I wish they would have kept the same theme music.

paul.lee@abc.com

He is the person behind the scenes puling for GH.

Please don’t write him and ask him or suggest how to write. Let him know how good the show is getting.
TPTB have shown us this past month they know what they are doing. Though the scenes are not all that (yet) , with bringing back castmates, its about to Rock N Roll on GH!
They don’t need our help in writing. Just our support.

dg

Debi I vehemently disagree. Brian Frons dictated story on all 3 ABC soaps for yrs and he thought he knew what he was doing and he destroyed all 3 shows. Ive been watching GH since 1969 and Im an expert in it’s history. I’m also a writer. As fans we have a write to comment on the quality of what is written for the show. After all it is written for us-the viewers.
If there are things we dont like we have a right to say so. Cartini have made many positive changers to the show-pacing,background music, etc. But they’ve also made mistakes as well. First up giving at least 2 OLTL actors contracts any only bringing back GH vets for short term cameos is a mistake. That’s not fare to longtime GH fans who miss their faves and dont watch OLTL.
The biggest mistake Cartini is making is bowing down to GH’s resident trinty-Maurice Bernard, Steve Burton and Kelly Monaco. The show is still the Sonny Corinthos hour. Robin Mattson is being brought back to prop up the lame Franco and Jason story. I love the OLTL actors and I admire Ron C’s writing style for the most part and his fast paced scripts.
But this is General Hospital not OLTL 2.0. And I’m sry but I dont believe that GH has to be propped up by OLTL stories and actors to survive. I could write stories that would increase GH’s ratings without borrowing any story lines from OLTL. Again as a former One Life viewer for many years I enjoy the cross over, but critically I still feel its neither fair to the GH viewers who didnt watch OLTL or necessary to save GH.

Debi
Debi

Wait..hold on here. I email GH at least once a week. Have been for years. I refuse to tell tptb how to write. Do you know how many emails, tweets, phone calls they get from people telling them what & how to write??
I am an expert on GH. I remember what worked in the past and what didn’t. Times have changed. Haven’t you noticed? Though the times have changed, the minds of the past didn’t change, thus making GH as well as OLTL unbelievable and silly to watch at times.
For entertainment, I watch present day stories. What I watch has to entertain me with good writing, producing, editing, & acting.
Ron & Frank understand this. So I can’t be alone with my thinking.
I was very sad Robert didn’t stay long enough for his daughters funeral!!
BAD BAD mistake. However the new writing staff wants to move on, and bring GH up to date, along with reminding new viewers and old viewers the greatness GH once was.
Am I tired of Sam? YES. Though I believe Mo is a great actor, the whole show revolves around him. Yep I am tired of that.
But I am not going to stop believing that the new people behind the scenes are going to do a better job at keeping this legend soap on air.

I really think, bringing 3 people from OLTL over is hardly turning GH into OLTL-2. Not by far. I happen to think Blair & Todd are assets to the show.
Starr-yea I can’t understsand why she was brought on.

This is my opinion of GH. You are certainly entitled to your opinion.
I don’t care if you are a writer or a cashier at the 7/11. We know what we like, and what entertains us. Different strokes……for different folks.
For now I say kudos to the scenes that were written yesterday with Edward. Looking at the mantel, naming everyone, giving a brief reminder of what GH was about was brilliant.

Here is to another 50 years of GH!

Mitchell1660
Mitchell1660

Starr (Kristen Alderson) was brought to GH because of her sterling acting skills as a young actress who grew up on OLTL. I started watching GH to see how the writers were going to handle Starr, Blair, Todd and McBain coming on board and they have handled it brilliantly. I’m going to stick with it and eventually catch on to the other storylines.

And, I agree with you, Debi. Write or email GH about your likes and dislikes. But telling them how to write…? I don’t think so.

Brian

Love it. Anything to keep the cost down.

Bonnie

Money commercials!! of course what ABC wants not the viewers. If it truly does rotate, that is fine, but bring the theme song back please!! if they are cutting this opening, then they should cut the openings of prime time shows!

Kim
Kim

I like it. The song is kind of ridiculous, but I’d rather less time for the credits since visually they’re so cheesy anyway. Way more interested in the episodes than the opening credits.

That said, it would have been cool if they used a bit of one of the older, very recognized pieces of music.

tricia

Thumbs down on the theme song, but I like the shorter intro. Did they lengthen the show or did it just seem that way? Since I DVR it, I noticed a different pattern of commercials but couldn’t tell if the actual show time was increased

aria

I like the one that included all the contract players, thats what made it unique unlike Y&R which only include part of the cast. Go back to the original and for that matter, also include a “special guest star” for the returning vets who are essentially not on contract but guest starting on the show, i think they deserve that feature like they did for James Franco.

Robyn
Robyn

Thumbs down. Where is the identifiable (read branding) theme song? Where are the Quartermaines?

Christy
Christy

you know that Dave Koz song isn’t the original music… I remember when they changed the opening from the ambulance and hospital images and that dang siren sounding music. It took a while to get used to the Dave Koz music, but I liked the change in images. Then just got used to the music, so we’ll probably get used to whatever they change it to now… and it’s really not the opening that is important, it’s the rest of the hour!

Pauretajt

Absolutely fantastic. Everything the Duo touch turns to gold. Salivating upon seeing my favorite Todd on screen again. The intensity of that man…

Avala

Thumbs in the middle? I didn’t like it yesterday, but I think it could be interesting if it changes everyday. My concern is that if it shows who’s going to be on that day in the opening, some people may change the channel because their faves aren’t on.

Christy
Christy

it’s impossible to put every character on the opening, and not fair to just have these 5-8 or so characters and never get to see others… and maybe the ones in the opening aren’t featured in a main story and the ones that are don’t get to be on the opening… i say give it a chance. I can’t see dumping a soap just cuz they change the opening.

Susan

Thumbs down.

They couldn’t get rid of Robin fast enough. They kept the other characters in the credits for a long time. When Robin died, It’s like she never existed.

cathy

ITA Susan! Just another insult to Robin a character that meant so much to MANY of us.

Susan
Susan

Cathy,

KMc and Robin were the only reason I stayed with GH for this long. Loved my Scorpio-Drake family scene. I’m highly upset that GH could’t wait to get rid of Robin so fast. GH has become unrecognizable and unbearable to watch without Robin.

I understand that KMc wanted to leave, but the storyline seems incomplete and too rushed.

I had such high hopes for FV & RC, now I just feel a huge sense of disappointment.

1loveabcsoaps

I want Starr gone, only visits from OLTL, no long term players. Only longterm I would like to see is Roxy over that the diner at GH. Everyone else, short stories. 6 weeks, to 3months. I would love the Story of the Two Todds to play out, thing is it just dawned on me , much of the cast of one life has to be present for it to be effective.

PS: What’s ITA?

Debi
Debi

It isn’t so much they couldn’t get rid of her fast enough, as the lack of storyline her death got.

cathy
cathy

It was a total insult as a viewer. Making Robin an aftermath in her own death. Who cares about Starr on OLTL, I don’t. This is GH and GH killed a legacy Robin and makes a mockery out of it.

Debi
Debi

Cathy, Robin isn’t dead. However, for now we are to believe she is.
How they played out her story was just plain sloppy.
Whoever heard of alarms going off in a hospital and nobody come running?
Skip to Luke/Holly/LIW. Then skip to Carly/Johnny. Never mind the night she died lasted 2 weeks.
Starr isn’t too blame. The writers were. Well, they are hopefully long gone.

MaryAnne

Thumbs DOWN on this one Michael !! I did not like it at ALL !! Opening for me lifts me up & makes me feel good as a dedicated fan. I was really disappointed how they changed it.

don’t like it. would not mind if the shorter begining gave us moreof gh to watch it is bad enough that their is so many commercials that u get just about 30 minutes of actual watch time of gh

Sadly, opening sequences are passe in television. I am OK with that but I would have appreciated strains of a familiar GH theme in the presentation.

I am liking the changes in the wind blowing through Port Charles these days, and I hope the result will be a return to the show we loved with strong focus on legacy families and the hospital of the title.

Lori

I LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! MORE SHOW! Now, would you rather better writing or a long opening sequence???? I for one would prefer the writing over the opening ANY day! I am absolutely in LOVE with our new writing staff and producing team that I haven’t missed an episode in almost a month! That’s saying volumes b/c the last few months that Wolf was on, I would miss some shows and it would not bother me, but you can TOTALLY tell the difference in the writing and it is paying off BIG TIME! KUDOS TO RON and his staff!! Looking forward to more of you in the years to come for a loooooong time! Change is abound and inevitable, we need to embrace it and be proud that we’re still Alive and well! 🙂 <3 However, I do miss KM already! And JT is doing marvelously! I can go on forever but I won't, lol!

I have watched GH since Luke and Laura were young. It was strange, but if it leads to more storyline that’s okay by me. Love seeing OLTL players on the show yesterday. Looks like it will be a real showdown between Sonny and Todd. Wondering how long they will keep this D.I.D. Kate thing going, hope not long it gets really stale.

Cindy Mason

GH’s theme was it’s signature. I LOATHE this new opening beyond comprehension. Whatever the reasoning behind it they could have done a nice spin on Autumn Breeze or Faces of the Heart. The new music literally sounds like a video game or cheap downloadable ring tone!!!! ARGH!!!!!! I almost couldn’t concentrate on the show yesterday because i just kept saying to myself, “Did they really do that to General Hospital?”

MWF

I have to say, as much as I love GH, especially over the past few weeks, I have to agree! It won’t stop me watching but it’s a real pity.

Can you say “budget saver”? Wonderful place to save money, without taking away anything from the actual show. Such a smart move, I’d rather a shortened opening that doesn’t matter then taking money away from the actual show. Smart thinking!

Kat

I understand that it was network mandated which makes sense they want more times for commercials. The music is weird though. Yesterday I found it jarring and it still sounds off to me this morning. If anyone thinks this is a OLTL thing, it’s NOT. You can go check all the OLTL openings for the past five years on youtube. This is an ABC thing. Also I heard on soapnet they used different music, the old night shift theme.

thumbs down, but question what happened to the original Maxie – heard she was off temporarily for Cancer Treatment. Jax gone for good?

I think Kristen Storms is gone for good and so is the character of Jax. They are going in another direction the previous writers kinda of ruined the character of Jax. The opening at least they updated and finally removed characters that were not there Y&R has not changed since 2001!!!!

Debi
Debi

I agree 100%. KS is done.
Unfortunately so is Jax.

cathy

The new opening is horrible. Just go back to the old one without using actors. If it wasn’t bad enough the new regime killed Robin with her death being an afterthough now they already removed her from opening when fans are having difficult time with Robin dying. Most wanted Robin to get her happy ending. Then new head writer already having Lucky’s ex Liz moving in and trying to take Robins place. Then Patrick can’t tell his daughter about her mother dying, he needed her help. Then yesterday Matt couldn’t see his brother because he was with Emma. Forgive me but what is she doing there in Robin house when Patrick wanted to be alone with Emma as the reason Matt can’t see his brother. I think the whole Robns death is an insult and joke. Where is Sonny he would be devastatred? One scene was it. Uncle Mac and Maxie back at work is laughable. Where is GH? This new head writer is as bad as Guza and Garin Wolf. I am not interested in OLTL nor should they be on GH. Robert considering suicide until he is told Ethan is his. OMG this is NOT GH. I guess soaps ALL soaps even GH are really dead. After this I feel GH should be dead.It lost its heart and all the soap vets can’t get it back. Those are just stunts.

RICKIE
RICKIE

Definitely thumbs down. I REALLY want to get on board with GH (I owe it to a medium that has entertained and enriched my life for several decades), but everything about this show is SO dark, bleak and violent. I tuned in yesterday to watch one intensely dark scene after another: Starr being told her child and boyfriend perished in a car explosion; Robert Scorpio teetering on a bridge contemplating suicide; and Kate spiraling into mental meltdown/split personality. (No offense to any of these actors, who all did remarkable jobs. I just wish these travesties were spaced out better to even out the show’s mood.)

The new credits reflect this new vision of GH… the “Places in the Heart” theme echoed the glory days of GH — tenderness, hope, assurance (characters were grouped in families or couples). This blunted music is the new GH — stark, depressing, harshly brisk, unrelentlessly dire. The show has NO humor and no lightness to offset its darkness (even the settings and lighting are dim). And the characters that usually lighten the mood — Edward, Epiphany, Diane — are underused.

Please, please, GH… let up! I desperately want this show to get on track… but the mood of the show is putting me off.

The old Maxie is ill and that is why they cannot just “bring her back”. I don’t understand how people haven’t heard this and/or don’t want to accept it. If someone was not filling jn the character would have been off for many months now.

1loveabcsoaps
1loveabcsoaps

Yes, and this current Maxi is doing just fine. That character isn’t the easier to pay because Kristin (the old Maxi) played it with ALLOT of zest and energy. And so Jill is doing just fine bringing that same tenacity to the table. Jill, you are doing JUST fine., Trust Me.

JEFF

Great new opening!! The old one made me crazy with that insipid sax work. If anyone noticed the original theme still plays on the end credits! So far very impressed with the shows new direction. Contrary to alot of people on here I enjoy Carly, Sonny and Jason, all great actors! I love the nuKate; she plays the Brooklyn part of her character much better than Megan Ward. She was way too waspy to believe she was from Bensonhurst.

Dan

I don’t mind the new opening, especially if we get more show out of it, like I believe we did yesterday. But I will say that the music is horrible. Someone said it earlier, it sounds like some cheesy jingle you’d hear on the 6:00 news.

boes
boes

The new opening is fine, all things considered. TPTB might be getting more commercials, but we are also getting MORE SHOW. And I’d rather have more scenes than a long opening. I always FF through it anyway.

IMO, the only insult to GH will be if the show gets cancelled after this regime does its best (and their best is GREAT), not the change in the opening or the loss of the last theme.

Debbie Harris
Debbie Harris

I don’t like the music in the new opening at all. Heard it might change daily. Hope they mean themusic will change and not just the actors who are on it. If it means that the show goes 2 minutes longer then that’s great! Just wish they would put better music with the intro, shorter or not.
Kudos to Ron and his writing staff for the better storylines already! Loving the old characters coming back and Way Loving the OLTL characters getting intermingled in!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
