Many of you have been posting comments to our item on the new shortened General Hospital opening title sequence that first aired on Monday’s episode.   Now today on Tuesday’s episode, a different array of characters and performers appear in the line-up with a different theme.  And as we explained, we are hearing there will several new cast configurations seen over the next several days.

The music bed theme we are hearing today sounds exactly like the opening sequence theme from GH’s primetime spinoff GH: Night Shift!  We think it’s part of the same music theme.

So how do you like this version’s music and the rotating cast?   Let us know after watching the video clip after the jump, if you are thumbs up or thumbs down on this one!

I like the music, but I would love if they brought back Autumn Breeze or Faces of the Heart..

I like the fact that they are changing the cast pictures up. It’s nice to not see Sonny, Jason, Carly and Sam in the beginning, but I do miss the GH music.

What are they trying to prove or change up with this? Aren’t they suppose to have “all contract” players in the opening? Where is Traci and Edward? Not sure I like this at all!!

I don’t mind the cast rotating. Fine idea. I believe “One Life” did that. But the “music” is bad, and the photos go by too fast.

I agree! Not a fan of the music and photos are way too fast.

Forgot to say they should bring back the Dave Koz music, or have him write something new. that was the best music GH ever had.

Why not spend a fraction of a second on the significant actors they brought back from the past and what about the temporary ones to lure viewers?

To be honest when I heard it today, all I thought about was an updated Anther World opening from 2005. I am glad that they have updated it and made it shorter but would rather have all cast included. I also like the fast paced there taking with the show and opening….maybe this might just work!!

I didn’t care for the music on Tuesday, but today’s (Wednesday), I thought sounded different or maybe I didn’t notice?! Ha! Ha!

In any event, SO glad that Jonathan Jackson is still in the opening credits. That speaks volumes!!

It either means he’s coming back(doubtful) or who ever is in charge of the opening credits doesn’t know who is in and who is out, and it doesn’t surprise me, on OLTL they had actors showing in the opening credits long after they were gone. It just makes them look like they don’t pay attention or care or lazy.

the first day it took me playing it several times to get used to it but then second third and fourth day have been horrible, basically they show the same actors in different order, and to top it off in two of those sequence they show Jonathan Jackson in the credits, and he’s gone!. Maybe to alot of people it isn’t a big deal, but I believe even small things make a difference, it shows that no one is paying attention and to add further insult, i heard the music director for the show was fired so that FV could… Read more »

Does anyone know when the Paul Glass background music/song selections will start to air..? Chaning the intro song is one thing, what is making me nervous is changing the background music, since I think RC Cates is so great. Has Paul Glass’s background music already begun to air? The last couple days for Robin have been outstanding.. is this Glass’s work? Or Cates? This is troubling to me, because if what I heard today and yesterday is Cates, then Valentini fired a true master. If it is Glass’s work already, I can breath a sigh of relief.. anyone know..?

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
