General Hospital has the most vivid sensational characters, of all the soaps!!
It is a spellbinding on the edge soap yet has fun humorous stuff injected in for balance!!
I know General Hospital will take it all the way for our Halloween good time!!

Can hardly wait for Roger Howarth/Franco’s Halloween wedding!!
It’s gonna rock!!!

(when the soaps are not taken overly serious as if they are real and personal, they can be fun, really fun!! …
Especially General Hospital, always a good time on the cliffs edge dangling suspense!! !!!

I completely agree! Will never understand the criticism that GH is not “realistic” enough. Hello? It’s a tv show! Not even “reality” shows are realistic. They are scripted. Pro wrestling – scripted. And, when have soaps ever been “realistic?” I guess those critics only want dour, depressing sagas where everyone is drinking, having affairs & popping prescription drugs to deal with it all. I’d MUCH rather watch GH’s twisted, black humor any day! When you have a mobster like Sonny who has ruled the town, it makes sense to do GET SHORTY eventually.

Lately, we are seeing the real Roger Howarth; playing Franco far more delicious than he has since GH changed his character over from Todd. Looking forward to his Halloween surprise for Carly who deserves everything that is coming to her!

Actually, ces…I’ve been saying this for a while not..but we’re seeing the reall “Todd.” His personality is really emerging very close to Todd’s and I’m thinking this is the way Ron gets away with keeping Roger in his beloved role while staying within the legal boundaries. Either way I agree. Roger is baaaaaaaack!

should read a while “now”…and real (not reall)

You’re right Rebecca. I saw “Todd” in those scenes with Heather on Friday, not Franco. GH knows that turning Roger into Franco was dumb but their hands were tied if they wanted to keep Roger on the show. It sucks, because Todd & Carly used to have chemistry and then poof, PP came in and they lost it along the way. I’m really hoping Franco & Nina hook up together after all this is said & done. Love the stuff Roger is doing now 😉
Super tired of Carly needing to protect Michael all the time — it’s like “Cut the apron strings already!”

su0000, I think something is going on with Franco off-screen. 1st I thought there were 2 of him (hear me out..lol), but now I wonder if he has a split personality..

Thursday when Franco & Michael were in the conferences room at GH his hair was combed down straight and dry (no product). He said he had an appointment & left. A bit later he shows up at Ferncliff to see mom. He had the same clothes on, added a jacket and some kind of hair oil. His hair was slicked back like John Travolta in Grease. Heather said “What did you do to your hair? I don’t like it” & he replied it was a new look. After he left there he went to Metro Court to see Carly. It’s still the same day, same clothes. He walks in with yet ANOTHER hairstyle. He had the same clothes on. but now his hair looks shorter, and it was dry, but shiny like it has product on it. The bangs looked different & it even looked like he had highlights.

So either GH has the worst editors ever (I forgot what the actual people who are in charge of the editing and continuity) or something else is going on with that greased back hair. Hmm??

Cant wait for ‘THE BRIDE OF FRANCOSTEIN’ episode…lol…this episode wouldve been a great time for Helene to pay a spooky visit to Jason in the hospital…Nina asking Silas to ‘Play Misty For Me'(with Donna Mills in that scene: she played in the movie with that title about a crazy woman-Jessica Walter- obsessed with Clint Eastwoods character and went all Ninalike crazy, though the much of the storyline is a different)…Faison suprising Liesal only its Victor in a mask…Lulu having a Rosemarys Baby nightmare as she is carrying Stravos’s child and all the Cassidines are there worhshiping the Devil(Stravos) as Lulu gives birth…Carlys Psycho encounter with Franco ‘Bates’ crazy mother Heather and the return of Patrick and Sabrina as a couple…now thats SCARY!…BOO!!…HAPPY HALLOOWEEN…lmao!!!

LAUGH OUT LOUD, jimh…enjoyed your read…one thing…All possible scenarios…only on GH.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

As a tribute to the Godfather…i want Sonny to find a horse’s head in his bed…or Carlys…or Carly finds Sonnys in hers…works both ways for me…lol

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

To honor Michelles big performance: Attack Of The 50ft Nina on the Halloween episode! Nina is touched by an alien on a long dark deserted road…within days she grows into a giant and goes on a rampage searching for Silas and Sam who briefly reunited and are having drinks at Ryans Bar in New York…Nina pulls off the roof and a beam falls on Sam crushing her to death! Nina reaches down and picks up Silas and carries him off only both are electricuited to death when giant Nina attempts to cross electrical lines…of course its just a fantasy episode and part of a dream Silas is having…lol

I like the a Sonny’s head part, jimh…LOL

I remember “Play Misty for Me-” a great movie! It used to be shown on television a lot when I was younger! I am really enjoying Nina Clay. Love Nina’s interactions with her mother and Rosalie. She’s hurt, sensitive, and vulnerable mixed with crazy, deceitful, and diabolical. With all of the talk about how close she was to her father-I am wondering if she was abused by him-which caused her to go crazy. It sounds like Franco will be showing quite the video at his wedding to Carly-much like what happened on Days at Brady and Kristen’s wedding. I just hope that Michael gets a new couch! HA!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Did you have to remind me about the couch…lol…i bet if they took it out to burn it, the Sonny/Carly fumes would spread all over PC causing instant death to whom ever inhales it…lol…PMFM is one of my favorite thrillers of all time!!!

I know jimh-the couch-haha! Perhaps this storyline will make Michael a tad bit interesting. I have always been a fan of Sonny’s, but not lately-and Shawn as his “enforcer” is ridiculous. Waste of air-time-Shawn trying to pin Franco’s near-death on Maxie, etc.-when you know that was never going to happen. Sonny repeating the same lines about how Carly is making a mistake, how she doesn’t love Franco, how she belongs with Sonny, etc., etc.-just plain dumb and boring. I’ve lost count at how many women Sonny has said belonged with him. Anyhoo, I do like Franco-just not in this storyline. I enjoy his friendship with Nina and I think his scenes with Heather are funny. Roger Howarth is very talented and I think his talents could be put to better use-rather than rehashing the brain tumor “made him do it,” the video that “proved” that the brain tumor made him do it, etc. Anyhoo, I’m getting off track! Halloween should be fun in PC!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I agree with everything youve said about Sonny, Shawn, Franco, Nina, Heather, and Micheal…and i look forward to the Halloween episode…sounds like its going to be good!!!

The last scene with Franco and Heather is an absolutely lip-smacking, delicious and frightening satirical feast. I’m sure they both had a lot of fun C U T T I N G it !!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Franco with Heather or Franco with Nina…Franco works best with these two characters and vice versa…imo…GH still has some flaws but lately the cast seems somewhat better balanced in recent weeks and the storylines are improving lately that now if my overgrown toenails need a trim they’ll just have to wait for the weekend…lol

I agree; Franco’s best scenes and most enjoyable scenes are with his mother, Heather and his friend, Nina.

I JUST LOVED IT, CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT ALL ON GH. I’LL COMMENT MORE AFTER I SEE IT, AND THAT I CAN KEEP MY EYES OPEN AND MY SCREAMS NOT SO LOUD. BE BACK THAN, AND MAY EVERYONE THAT IS A FAN OF THE BEST GH, A HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

Faison dressing up as Beetlejuice last year was the best. The great Anders Hove took the ball and ran with it. I always love seeing what costumes they come up with for the various characters. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us this year.

That was very funny-when he opened the door and Lesley Webber fainted. I love Faison and Dr. O’s scenes together, too.

And “Dr. O.” trussed-up in that dirndl as a frisky fraulein really completed the picture!

I was glad to see Heather; I want Franco and Heather to confront Sonny and Shawn. I hope Franco becomes more combatant with Sonny. Just because he ‘s a mobster, the writers like to make other characters afraid of him. That’s how they wrote A. J.’s character.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, it’s quite obvious Franco’s from today’s episode. wedding gift to his bride will be a video of herself and a Sonny in bed…brought to us in technicolor …Boo, surprise, y’ll.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Sounds a little like Days when they did the Kristen/Eric video at Kristen and Bradys wedding…

CeeCee
CeeCee

You’re right…crossed my mind too. I think the preview ,today, tried to throw us off, though. Didn’t Franco say to Carly that he knew what was going on between her and Sonny? Of course, it’ll be something completely different from what we’re thinking.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
