So was Michael Corinthos (played by Chad Duell) raped in prison on General Hospital? Presumably,  evil inmate Carter (Joshua Wingate), has been beating him up and sexually abusing him.  TV Guide Magazine tried to get some new info from GH head writer, Bob Guza, since no one at the network, GH, or connected with the show,  is actually saying that Michael was raped, which is now amounting to viewers making up their own minds up about Michael’s prison life.  So what do you think?  To help you along,  here are a few key excerpts with Guza!

Guza on the veil of secrecy of if Michael was raped: “I have never confirmed that he was and I’m not about to. Our focus right now is on the horrific experience of an 18- or 19-year-old who is thrown into a terrible situation like this. I just didn’t want to make the story more specific at this point. However, that’s not to say that I won’t be getting very specific in three or four or five months down the line. This situation is going to rear its ugly head in a big way and Michael is going to have to deal with it. This is a story that needs to be parceled out.”

Guza on how long Michael will really stay in the slammer and what could be the fallout: “We will get him out of there in a very interesting way and relatively quickly. And then this thing [that happened to him] will fester and much, much more will be revealed.”

I don’t even care anymore. Guza seems to be serving up leftovers almost every day. I’ve heard some of the dialogue so many time. I ran a Website for 8 years about GH. I wrote Intenet articles about GH and also wrote a satirical series “Annie’s Apples” about GH. My husband once said he thought GH and I should pick out some new draperies for the sunroom. My disillusionment really started before Michael was sent to prison. I was sorry to see Drew Garrett leave, but I do think Chad Duell is doing a brilliant job as Michael. Brook’s return… Read more »

I think that Michael was raped and that he will be HIV positive. I came up with this scenario because there has been so much discussion about Stone. Michael being HIV positive will prompt Robin to be even more a part of Sonny’s life, thus creating further conflict for her and Patrick. Sonny will be overwhelmed with guilt and Carly…well let’s just say, while the storyline would be heartbreaking, the performances will all be Emmy worthy. But of course, this is speculation on my part.

Well, it seems from the way he is behaving, Michael probably was raped, as repulsive as that is. So the question is, can Jason be there for him at all times and what would Jason do to protect Michael? Because, Jason will probably have to stay in prison once Michael gets out. So where is the justice for that sacrifice Jason made? I will be anxious to see how this is all resolved……

Rape is an ugly and disgusting act whether it is done to a female or male. It is a reality and I respect them for opening this topic up for discussion, since it is rarely discussed. Liz was raped as a teen and so was Laura. What makes this topic untouchable, the fact that it happens to a man? It may give men who have gone through this the strength to tell someone.

I am leaning toward the rape, but I am not happy with the idea that day time television exploring it. Not, because of the issue that it is a reality but like everything else on television. It’s too much, because what televison does that is not going to be reality is make it seem as if everything is going to eventually seem as if its okay and they are not going to explore all alternatives of what could lead to that poor young mans reality. I think they should have left that alone.

The storyline between the Michael and Carter character was very gripping, and very well acted. I would say there was a homosexual subtext, as nothing was stated explicitly. However, I think it posited the homosexual Carter as seductive/subversive while the heterosexual Michael was painted as white. Is there some sexual ideology at work here? There should be more of these storylines, as they use diverse characters.

I notice that the ‘Carter’ character was later ‘killed off’ for his sexual transgression, which lent it some dubious morality.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. 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. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
