I’m hoping Sam stays with Jason, that her baby lives and doesn’t get switched, I would love for John and sam to be brother and sister. that tea has twins, and finds out victor is alive, for Blair, little sam (recast), Jack(also recast) and Viki come to PC and Blair gets back together with Todd, and stays with him this time, it’s about time that GH has a few couples who stay together like in the old days. the mob stories need to become back burnered.

I agree Sharon. GH stop trying to fabricate a connection between Sam and John. There is a reason why John and Natalie were popular on OLTL so bring Nat and Liam over to GH! Along a Nat and Jason pairing would serve John right for cheating with Sam.

I heard that Jack and Kristen had a very bad divorce, and that Jack refuses to work with her.

Looks intense. I am glad to know Tea can’t stand the sight of Todd–I can’t either. If Jason doesn’t want McBain around Sam, maybe Jason should have treated her better. Ratings for GH can only improve.

Seriously, I can’t get over how terribly Jason is treating sam, Cant wait to see tea let Todd have it, Hopefully Victor is close by, May is going to be interesting for the characters of Port charles. Isn’t general hospital so good again, With the help of our One life to live cross overs.

Yay!! Tea!!!
So glad Carly is being Carly. -Totally vicious once she’s been messed with. True to form!
Not sure about the Sam/Jason/McBain thing yet but I definitely think Jason is acting like an ass. I’m not digging him at all right now. Where is Natalie? John is not a cheat!
Poor Kate.

GH has been THIS GOOD IN YEARS! I stopped watching a long time ago when it became the same tired retold mafia show. THe characters were boring,the stories were boring and it simply sucked. Since it has been in the hands of Ron and Frank it has become MUST SEE TV! LOVE IT!! And Kudos to the actress playing Kate/Connie. She is FANTASTIC! Megan Ward was not cast well…TOO stale white bread but this woman ROCKS! And John makes Sam interesting again! KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK and I’ll never miss a day again:)

I agree John makes Sam interesting, she was never interesting before. I think she should turn out to be his presumed dead little sister as that would explain their connection while paying fidelity to Natalie and John’s romance.

I agree Joe! I find myself looking forward to GH every day when up until just recently I only watched it to support our soaps. I genuinely look forward to it now. There has been a gradual turnaround-due to Ron & Frank & it is paying off. Loving it (still miss OLTL though, miss it bad)

Don’t want a McBain/Sam pairing or triangle. McBain loves Natalie & Liam. OLTL fans deserve their happy ending!

Emily
Guest

I’m w/u MBmomof3!!! I’m not getting the Jolie and Jasam dynamic. 1 day McBain seems like a devoted husband (that’s where they suedo left it, Natalie married a cop) and dad (w/the calls and trip back). Then another day there’s similar lines and plot points John and Natalie had, but using Sam in Nat’s place. I remember the John, Evang and Nat triangle–least they were all single and on the canvas. It was a good triangle, both women were good prospects. But this…It’s all frustrating. I’m a JOLIE fan so I know couples break up, etc…. But do something about… Read more »

Emily
Guest

John and Nat’s fanbase combine the names and came up w/”JOLIE”. A short cut name for the couple. I had to get familiar w/some of the soap board terms. They’ve been referenced Jolie for a while now, as far as i know.

Yeah, it all seems so contrived–let’s show case what ME can do w/his words, gestures, etc.. no matter if i makes sense or not. So what if Sam is preggers and about to drop any day, let’s recycle the popular Jolie hightlighted stories. No 1 will notice……

Looks great!!! Love that Tea is coming to PC!!! Wish TSJ as Victor would be coming too! This is looking great and the ratings should go up! McBain can be related to Sam. I can’t wait to see Carly and Tea together would loke to see them be mixed up together and eventualy become friends. Not as excited about RH coming back still wish it were TSJ coming on the GH canvas. Still want Kate/Connie to get committed and out of PC… just not liking that storyline. Can’t wait to see what else they throw at MB he handles it… Read more »

Words cannot say how excited I am to see Tea and Todd returning. I miss OLTL more than any show I have ever watched on television. Thanks to the fantastic writers and Frank Valentini for bring Llanview to Port Charles. Next is going to be TSJ to finalize the OLTL storyline. All I can hope is that they stay on the show for good. Then they need to bring Vicki to help Kate. This is getting so good I can’t stand it. Thanks Ron and Frank, I have happiness again.

I look forward to that caterwauling shrew Tea to leave–why on earth would Ron bring back that obnoxious shrieking bitch when the fans detest her? I look forward to Blair coming back as well as Todd. I am enjoying John McBain on GH as he is making both Sonny and Jason look silly and small.

Think you’re in the minority when you say “fans detest her”. Besides you, who are you referring to? Kinda don’t think Ron & Frank would bring back a character that the fans hate, they’re better businessmen than that!

Gosh, what did Tea ever do to you? She has always been a favorite-actress AND character. You are MOST definitely in the minority here. I love Blair too but she has certainly had her moments, as has Carly! Every girl on the soaps is shrieking & obnoxious once in a while, ha!

I just know I could have done without the character of Starr coming over I am telling you and I hate being mean but her scenes are like nails going down a chalkboard. Her facial expressions everything for me personally I just mute the sound button or FF. A suggestion take acting classes please!! I felt the whole scenes with the gun and Sonny was cheesy. Just make it stop I hate she is getting so much air time and now with Tea and Todd coming to town that is all we will see. Concerning John McBain he even said… Read more »

And John belongs with Natalie.. They are soul mates & they have a baby boy together…Never liked Christian w./ Natalie….Natalie & john alway’s had that special connection… From day one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know where they found the baby who played Liam, but he looks so much like ME. The casting of John, Nat and then Liam, was through the roof!! The baby even connected so well w/ME, so comfortable w/each other. It was funny during the whole paternity thing at the time. I’m sitt’n there and thinking huh, not John’s, looks just like him:)

Michael Easton made a few comments about he and Melissa Archer taking so long to get back together in an interview with Michael Logan! Yes I did like OLTL but no I was never a big fan of Starr and I feel she is a weak actress everyone has their favorites she just was never one of mine.

So depressing that people in 2012 are praising a show like GH, where a man slept with a mentally ill woman; where an alleged rape victim has to worry about upsetting her HUSBAND; where weak, fragile, delicate wimmens cry and pray to be saved by their big, strong boyfriends; where mental illness is played for entertainment value and comedy; where mobsters still swallow up every single day and women fawn over them.

You people are setting back the women’s movement at least 40 years. And it really is very sad.

I wish Ken Corday had the insight/balls to hire Frank/Ron before GH did.They are the best producer, writer team since Paul Rauch and Harding Lemay during “Another World’s” Golden years. I can’t stop watching GH since they took over! Instead of DVRing GH and forcing myself to watch it (or skipping it altogether)- I can;t wait to see what the writers have come up with next. Days, however, is in BIG trouble. I don’t understand why Corday, who owns his own show and does not have the same production limitations as other producers, can be so shortsighted.

I am so sick and tired of people wanting Frisco and Felicia. That was from a long time ago and frankly Felicia is a terrible actress. Move forward people stop begging for the past to return. I love the show now but it was horrible before Frank and Ron took over. I wake up every day and can’t wait to see GH. That is a sign of a great show. To me it is the best show ABC has on the air. By the way, Felicia has not aged well, just saying. I want her to go away with Mac… Read more »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

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.

Photo: ABC

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.

Photo: ABC

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.

Photo: ABC

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.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
