Ugh. All the focus on Starr was one of the reasons I tuned out to OLTL.

She was one of the many reasons I tuned out too. I’m praying that her singing will only be an occasional blip on the show. Now if MamaBlair had sung, I would have enjoyed it!

She is one of the reasons I have tuned out of GH lately. Too much focus on newbies and not enough on our GH actors.

Why????????? I see nothing wrong with Starr…She grew up on OLTL……And I like her character..I think she is very sweet…..If you tuned out on OLTL because of Starr you missed a lot of good stories on OLTL…You missed all the other actors & actresses..By tuning out for just one character…David you missed out on OLTL by doing that….Each character gets a turn to be in the spotlight…They focus on each one of them….As I said each one gets their turn to be in the spotlight…

I DONOT LIKE STARR ON GH. SHE WAS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOST INTEREST IN GH, when the CHANGE and cross overs started. I kept the show on EVEN if I (was not )at home to support the show and the ratings, BUT I am not at home to see it, and have to view it on line. I just didn’t have the burning desire to tune in and see Starr, who was being giving a HELLAVA lot of air time. Personally, I didn’tcare for her on OLTL, but that was her show that she started on and was… Read more »

I can’t understand how one little girl can cause so many people to turn off general hospital, If I felt that way about One person on any show that I watched and stopped watching because of that person it would make no sense, because there are other people living in Port Charles. there have been several people on general hospital over the years that I can’t stand like franco, Lisa niles, all the mobsters, but I kept watching, So what is the problem? Is it because she is from One life to live? I like her I have no problem… Read more »

No Barb, and I’m just seeing this post. I don’t know HOW I looked over it in my inbox, lol. I have been asking for you. Are you ok? How’s your health? There have been some brewing issues that you haven’t been involved in on here, so I’m wondering, is everything ok, down in paradise there. Please Advise.
And to answer your question (above) No, I didn’t see the (thread-your wrote) or are you saying threat (not sure) about Erica Kane.

Unless you a Neilson ratings participant with a Neilson rating box, you don’t have to keep your TV on to support ratings. The only ones that count are the participants with boxes. Their data is then transmitted to Neilson. When they say that a show has 2 million viewers, it doesn’t mean that 2 million people are transmitting data to Neilson. It’s only a small number- like 25,000 who are transmitting data. Those 25,000 represents the over 100 million TV sets in the US. It sounds like it doesn’t make sense but it is scientfic. It’s like an IQ score.… Read more »

One of the reasons I believe they brought her on she and her brother were moving to California already and they were looking for a love interest for Michael. I am just glad they kept her as Starr and not brought her on as the new Kristina which had been rumored. I know a lot of people are upset about the crossovers I do not have a problem with that. Over at Y&R MAB has brought faces that were well known from other soaps and made new characters that is a lot more jarring to me. I think her and… Read more »

I love Kristen Alderson and I am pleased they brought her to GH. When OLTL was cancelled I was upset and missed Kristen being on screen. She’s a great actress so long as the writers give her a good storyline! I like some romance thrown in, I get SO sick of the mob storyline! It’ s a soap opera and the viewers I know want to see romance. Bye the way, I do not like the pairings of Molly and TJ or Taylor and Rafe. They should switch them around.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
