I like that Y and R continually updates their opening yet keeps it classic while giving the actors credit. GH has done a disservice to actors and characters by having them whizz past in an abbreviated 12 second intro. And Days Of Our Lives totally needs a new opening. The opening sequence of a show should be somewhat indicative of the tone of the show and Days opening is dated, old fashioned and not relevant. They can keep the theme but jazz it up to be uptempo and contemporary. They can keep the hourglass…but as the sands begin to fall…that… Read more »

It seems that only the women are given props in their opening credits: diamonds for Melody Thomas Scott, candles for Christel Khalil, champagne flutes for Eileen Davidson, roses for Melissa Ordway, and whatever that was for Mishal Morgan.

Agggghhhhhh!!!!! Too similar to Bold and the Beautiful. And I don’t really like that they ended it with “the mystery woman”.

Is that Michelle Stafford in the dressing gown? The mystery woman you mention seems to have the same body type as Stafford and she walks like her too.

A few characters such as Daniel Goddard could be eliminated from the list. He is a lousy actor, just can’t see him in a romantic role with a woman.

Tomas Torquemada

He’s definitely grown on me. But like so many characters, he literally has no story or a story so tiny it’s meaningless. (Ashley did nothing these last three years, Abby is down to nothing, ditto Noah, Jill finally has a story after an Ashley-length time in the wilderness, anyone remember Kevin….)

kind of blah…same ol same ol….like the storylines right now…..i’m trying really hard to make it through an entire episode without fastforwarding, but find it so difficult. I know I told myself to give it six months to see what Sally could do with the show…but it is sooooo boring right now….not one sl keeps me interested….i’ve even started watching Days again, which has slowly improved and awaiting the head writing of Ron Carlivati…..do something soon, like bring Sheila Carter back and have her wipe out the entire town…..or even Daisy and Ryder…..something, please!!!!!!!!

you know maria arena bell was the best writer for that show , it had action with big story arcs that kept you entertained . viewers want these type of stories with that pace and rhythm nowadays . i loved when ashley was gaslighted by adam , when diane was killed , the ricky williams story , sharon skye the volcano and sharon on the run , harmony ( debbie morgan ) and genevieve ( genie francis ) , love the patty and emily identity thing especially when emily ended up in the psychiatric hospital instead of patty , fans… Read more »

Lol. Um…sorry to say…you are definitely in the minority on loving Maria Arena’s work. I will give her some props though. I loved some of her early work! Bringing back Patty finally….with an amazing actress and imaginative writing was soap brilliance. Except for killing Colleen….I loved every part of the Patty saga. And she finally brought back Nina’s long ago son. Many of her plots started out promising but then devolved into crap! By the time she was gone, the show was a complete mess. And to all the viewers who complain the show is now “boring”….you need to keep… Read more »

It’s just a different opening .

Like it overall, but yeah, it was way past time to get rid of the walking mystery woman (Michelle S). Puzzled as to why they kept that element, doesn’t really go with the new look.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Latest Project In Development At Hulu

If former All My Chldren stars, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Hayley and Mateo) are not busy enough with a morning talk show, television roles and producing projects, here comes word of yet another from them.

Now the lovebirds latest entry into a limited series from their Milojo Production entity is in development at Hulu.  Based on Siliva Moreno-Garcia’s best-selling horror thriller novel Mexican Gothic, Milojo acquired the rights to develop the fiction fantasy book for television in a competitive situation, according to Deadline,

In story in the novel, Mexican Gothic follows Noemí Taboada, a young socialite who travels to the Mexican countryside and the mountains of Hidalgo in hopes of rescuing her cousin, who has recently married into a reclusive mining family, after receiving a frantic letter in the mail. Noemí seeks to unveil the family’s violent and menacing secrets, but her confidence is quickly threatened and there may be no escaping the walls of her strange, new home.

“We feel like we hit the literary jackpot, and cannot wait to bring Silvia’s gorgeous writing to life, together with Hulu,” Ripa shared on the news.  While Moreno-Garcia added, “I am excited to see the novel come to life and to meet the talented, diverse crew and cast members that will take us on this journey.”

So what do you think of Kelly and Mark’s latest acquisition turned soon in to a limited series? Comment below.

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.
