Tuesday's Version of Shortened General Hospital Opening Sequence – Watch the Video!



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?

Great idea!!!

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 really like the variety but miss the gh theme…………..

Still thumbs down… but it does go by so quickly you can’t really get a feel for the music. Would like the GH music.

don’t like it

we need to know what happen to every one on OLTL and where is robin going. I liked the ne Todd better than this one

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.

SHORT AND SWEET I could care less about the opening and the music,days of our lives have been showing the same hour glass ,its the same one that I watched 40 years ago when I quit watching when they moved days of our lives at the same time one life to life was on, well i choose to stick with one life to live a decision to this day ,I never regretted,less music,more show time .

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 bring someone from OLTL, who in my opinion had one of the cheesiest opening. So MR. FV, why did you fire someone who was doing their job righ?

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..?

As far as intro goes… I wish they would as least have a version of what we know as the GH intro.. but like I said, what’s really troubling me is to change the backgrouond music, since it will def affect the entire mood/feel of the show… anyone know if Glass’s music has been airing..? I can’t seem to find it on Google….

More of the Story on ‘General Hospital’ Star Josh Kelly’s Latest Film Role in ‘The Workout’

We had previously shared that General Hospital’s Josh Kelly was taking three weeks away from his role of Cody Bell to a shoot a role in an upcoming movie entitled The Workout.

Josh originally revealed his role in the film during an episode of GH castmates, Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) podcast.

Now Deadline has filled in some of the blanks, and shared some intriguing intel on the premise of the film and its back-story.  The film stars Kelly along with Peter Jae, and UFC Fighter, Ashlee Evans-Smith. Other cast members include The Bay’s Kristos Andrews.

In The Workout, two army rangers set out to create a workout video, but their plans are abruptly halted when a mob hit interrupts their filming. Tragically, one of the rangers loses his wife in the attack, sending him on a relentless mission to take down the mob and anyone who stands in his way.

The film from James Cullen Bressack, almost did not get financed.  Apparently, ten days before his birthday, Bressack made a post on Instagram about the feature and production, casting, and financing came from the post … illustrating the power of social media. After the post gained traction, a producer provided financing and actors expressed interest in joining the project, leading to a quick production.

In a statement, Bressack shared, “As artists a painter paints, a musician makes music, a writer writes, but as filmmakers we have to ask permission to create. It’s time to change that narrative. This film spawned from a necessity to create. We create. We tell stories. We play pretend. I’m excited to take this journey. This is the truest form of collaboration and a community of friends coming together to make something fun. While our industry has had a rough time recently with strikes and a possible strike looming in the future, it’s nice to remind ourselves why we got into film to begin with. To have fun telling stories.”

No word yet on when The Workout will be released.

So, looking forward to seeing this collaborative effort featuring GH’s Josh Kelly? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Adam J. Harrington Weighs-in On John and Carly, and How it’s ‘Starting to Get Very Complicated”

On recent episodes of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) came to John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) rescue as he was beaten down in an assault. Carly put on her “nurses cap,” sort of speak, and got John to his hotel room and watched over to him, to make sure he didn’t lose consciousness.

GH fans also got their first glimpse of what may be a new romance for Carly, if she and John continue to bond.  If John and Carly were to have a relationship, it would certainly have a ripple effect with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Adam J. Harrington shared his view on the scenes and what might be next between the two. Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Harrington shared, “I thought it was written in a way where there’s an understanding and a respect between them both. I don’t think there was any moment where she was not aware that he’s an FBI agent, and there was no moment that he wasn’t aware of her history and relationship to other people in the town. I really liked it. I was really looking forward to shooting it with Laura and we had a really nice time shooting it.”

When Carly and John part ways, it seems there were some romantic sparks, as Harrington puts it, “Isn’t that interesting that sometimes with people, the one moment they actually show how they feel is when they know there’s an escape hatch. They know they’re about to walk away. So, it’s almost safe in that moment to do it. I thought that was really special about how (the writers) handled John and Carly. Even the music in that scene was beautifully done.”

Where is this all heading? Conflict! Internally and professionally, and as Adam explains, “Who Carly was to John on paper as just a tool to be used as bait is starting to get very complicated.”

What would you think of a John and Carly pairing? Would you prefer him with Anna, or neither of them? Let us know via the comment section and take our poll below.
