There was the pope then there was the Boston thing. I think these airdates take that into account but I'm not sure. I guess he'll be back by Friday at least.

I must admit I cut back somewhat on watching while he was gone even though I like the rest of the cast.

Leslie Charleson's face looks more settled, but you can't escape the fact that the skin above her cleavage shows every one of her 68 years, especially when you consider she's gotten at least 40 years of SoCal sun exposure due to her time on GH. I think Laura Wright is headed down the same path, although I wish she'd fix her jacked-up teeth.

Contrast with Finola Hughes (53) and Nancy Lee Grahn (55), who are just trying to look like good-looking fifty-something women.

I've been watching last week's General Hospital. I haven't watched since Tamara Braun was Carly.

The writing sure has declined. Not necessarily plot, which may or may not be better (I've only watched a week) , but the dialogue is flat. Maybe it's the acting, though.

I started watching GH I the ate 90s when Sarah Brown and Nancy Lee Grahn were consistently on FIRE. The current cast is pretty lightweight. I HATE the new Carly.

by Anonymousreply 1205/04/2013

Keep watching, R12. They've got a huge cast of about 30 on contract and another 30 or so that recur pretty heavily, so you're bound to like some of them. As for dialogue, I think it depends on which one of the scriptwriters handles that day's episode - most of them are pretty decent and a couple are very good.

Rumours of Howarth's role are that he is playing opposite not only Heather and Sam, but also Kristan Alderson's new character as well (so much for the promise of new roles with new stories - lol). It's looking quite clear that Howarth is the "real" Franco (whom Betsy Franco was talking to in her last scene the other day); Alderson will be Lauren Franco; Maura West is Franco's ex-wife Ava Jerome, Lauren's mother; and Michael Easton's character will be involved with Ava.

[quote]Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson appeared on General Hospital from 2012-2013. Their characters of Todd Manning, John McBain and Starr Manning will return to One Life to Live and likely be recast with new actors with the current actors receiving new characters once they return to General Hospital. Prospect Park currently owns the rights to all One Life to Live characters; TV Guide reported that because ABC does not want to risk any further legal disputes with Prospect Park concerning the characters, the only way to avoid such disputes may be to have the former One Life to Live actors portray "characters that in no way resemble the current ones" in order to stay on General Hospital.[18] ABC recently announced that the actors would be returning to GH on May 10, 2013, but without naming the characters they will portray. He will also continue to portray Todd Manning on the online version of One Life to Live.

So I guess Alexander Quartermaine is the real son of Alan Q and Susan Moore aka the real Franco and not the son of Tony Cassadine and Alexandria Quartermaine. This gives AJ a new rival half-brother. They will no doubt fight over Carly.

It will be cool to see Leslie Charleson and Jane Elliot bite their teeth into this new development.

Btw, how are people reacting to Rylan's Lulu? I think she's doing fine. Smart to have Lulu going through this identity crises in order to give Rylan a chance to make the role her own.

R56, so who was Franco? Sorry, I'm not where you're at yet.

Lulu is terrible, but better than half the actress on the show. Probably about as good as Carly, who is also terrible, but probably gets a lot of residual love from the previous actresses.

You sound like you don't like the show very much R57. Relax.

"Magic Milo" is part of the GH family. His brother in real life also plays his brother on the show (Max). They've both played Sonny's bodyguards for years - occasionally they get storylines, sometimes they are more background. They are also Tyler Christopher's (Nikolas) cousins in real life.

Drew Cheetwood (Milo) was a trainer and nutritionist for the actors before he stepped into the role of Max's brother. He does not have pretensions of being an award-winning thespian but he's a sincere guy and the cast, crew, and fans love him. So what's your damage?

[quote] And not even cute.

Are you serious? Who on the show do you prefer?

I would ship a Felix/Milo romance-"Filo", of you will. But that would be to daring-a gay mobster/henchman and his male nurse bf! Can we get it done?

by Anonymousreply 6105/06/2013

Derk (Dirk? Dank?) Cheetwood is very attractive. But his presence, by virtue of his brother and their personal relationships with the cast and crew, and I think his possible involvement in the Monavie debacle, has always left a bad taste in my mouth. He can barely act, and he seems like part of the hangover from the reign of Steve.

I used to be charmed when RC would turn his attention to the supporting cast and give them larger roles. Now after a few years I'm far more wary. I think this setup is just going to leave Dante holding his dick after a short term reunion. He's being made overbearing and ineffectual already.

by Anonymousreply 6205/06/2013

Derk plays Max, R62. Do you mean Drew?

I like how Ron continues to the minor players from previous regimes in new and fun ways (Milo, Dianne Miller, etc.). It gives the show continuity. A lot of times new HWs come in and you never hear of these types of characters again.

One thing love about GH compared to my former show (Days) is the sheer # of characters that they feature at lease semi-regularly. It makes the show a lot more fun to watch.

Then you've gotten to see FV/RC showcase the entire canvas, not just Broody McMobster and his Morally-Upstanding Hitman.

I think I conditionally approve of the new Lulu, although I don't think she's as pretty or as talented as Julie Marie Berman. This is a good storyline for a recasting, and she's acquitting herself well, although clearly Magic Milo, as great as his body is, is no actor.

Also, I don't like having to pretend that everything happened with this chick, not JMB, like the photoshopped wedding photo and what I only assume was a recreation of the actual first meeting of Lulu and Dante.

I disagree, Voice, but I've loved Emme Rylan since Guiding Light. I've met her. Love her and think she's far more talented than Julie Berman.

No Lauren Franco today. So I guess GH is two days behind? I take it that today's was supposed to be a Friday cliffhanger (Luke and Spinelli showing up at two unseen women's doors; Sam hearing someone lurking in the chapel). This means Howarth is probably on Friday and Easton won't be on until next Tuesday ...?

I really can not believe GH is devoting so much of its airtime to Molly, Rafe and TJ. I can only imagine most viewers are bored to tears with the romantic trials of characters who have yet to sprout pubic hair? Who finds this kids interesting?

Geary and Francis did a great job with their "goodbye" scenes, but they really should have devoted a little more time to closing the door to this legendary chapter of the show. At least two episodes of some indepth soul searching would have been nice for long-time viewers who want to see them reunite and newer viewers who should be brought up to speed to the significance of these characters.

Luke and Spinelli took the Samantha Stephens express flight again.

Because RC and FV are petty and vindictive, R88.

FV overplayed his hand in contract negotiations with Burton, and Burton walked. I can't stand Burton, but FV was stupid and throwing his power around. Burton trumped his ace. The piece of information FV was missing, but that he should have realized, is that Burton knew all along he had a job at Y&R if he wanted it.

To keep taking potshots at Burton makes them look bad.

by Anonymousreply 8905/07/2013

That is so funny if that is true about Todd being the real Jason. RC and FV really have a hard on for Steve Burton. I don't like the fact that Ellie lied to Spinelli. This brings her down to the level of Maxie. Any guesses why the fraus hate Sabrina so much? There are endless complaints by the readers of Daytime Confidential about her. I really like the actress and I think she does a good job. She has great chemistry with Felix and Liz. I love the fact that she's on to Britt and getting up in her business.

by Anonymousreply 9005/07/2013

R89 FV knew full well that SB had a job with Jill - she is legendary with her FOJ (Friend of Jill) program.

Frank made Stave the best offer he could to balance his budget. He offered Steve the same thing the other big stars get these days: much higher-than-average pay and less episodes per week + more time off. That's the only way to pay these people anything close to what they're used to.

No doubt Steve got a similar deal at Y&R (he's on a lot now, but he'll be rested too) but by jumping ship, Steve gets to feel like it was a step up because he was wooed by Jill and so his pride is in tact. Win/win.

Steve ruled the roost over at GH for many years so it was a pissing contest and they both got what they wanted. They're both alphas and Steve in particular is very ambitious with all his money making projects so he doesn't have it in him to take a demotion. (Maurice is a different personality type - he knows he's got it pretty good and would rather adapt to reality try to learn a whole new routine).

Frank's got a career to think of too - he climbed his way straight from the bottom to the top and now the genre was resting on his shoulders. In that respect, caving to a star like Steve (holding the budget and the show hostage) isn't good for Frank's business so Frank wisely looks at the big picture and takes a calculated risk.

As for (possibly) plugging Roger into a Jason-related role. Why not? Roger's the "it" guy who all the focus groups love and really connects with the audience so they've got to make a splash with his new character and put him smack dab at the center of it all. I think it's brilliant. Steve's never coming back and if he does he comes back as his character who had already disowned the Quartermaines anyway.

RC and FV are businessmen who stand to make a lot of money if the show stays on the air. Ron might throw a wink, a nod, or some shade into the dialogue but if you think these guys are sitting up at night devising the entire plot of General Hoosptal around how to tell Steve Burton that he's a mean ol' jerk and they hate him - I think they'd get a good laugh out of that image.

Anyway, I can't wait to see how this plays out!

by Anonymousreply 9105/07/2013

R91, FV could have given Burton what he asked for. It wasn't money; in exchange for a pay cut, Burton wanted some of what TG has -- more time off.

It really was an alpha pissing contest, and there was no winner. As a longtime Y&R viewer, I feel like we're the ones who lost.

I think the GH team did the right thing regarding Big Steve's reign of mediocrity. But they are nothing if not petty at the daily level. I still remember them using David Vickers to take a potshot at Judith Light for rejecting a return for a lame-sounding story arc with the human test pattern we know as Terri Conn at the end of OLTL. And they've been using the relish wars to snipe at OLTL 2.0 in a really bitchy way.

That's the reality with any creative team though. They have their great boons and their weak points. Even Doug Marland gave us Carolyn Crawford. I think the new OLTL and AMC are a lot more sleek and streamlined, but I appreciate what RC and FV do in the old form. Until Britt, Sabrina, Milo (or until he starts to speak, that is) etcetera come onscreen...unfortunately it's an increasing number of characters and stories lately.

Possibly unpopular opinion. I think Emme Rylan has more chemistry with Dominic Zamprogna and more energy than Julie Marie Berman had anytime after her first year on GH.

The talent level among the younger actor on soaps has really dropped.

When I started GH the younger cast was pretty fucking awesome. Sarah Brown, Jonathan Jackson, Amber Tamblyn, and Rebecca Herbst. I remember when Sarah Webber joined the show. She was played by a cute but terrible actress named Jennifer Skye. She was in the same group as these other guys and it was painfully obvious how bad she was.

The new Lulu is no better than Jennifer Skye, but everyone around her is equally awful so it's justacceptabe I guess.

The kid at the end with Ava was Morgan Corinthos. They showed him in a picture with Sonny and Carly right before they revealed him.

Maura West blew me away today. What a breath of fresh air. The subtlety, the smouldering sexiness, the commanding presence - she was absolutely fab-fucking-ulous.

FV and RC are nuts to keep her only short term. She instantly clicked with Geary, and I would love to see her tangle with Finola Hughes. Get rid of the pre-pubescent newbies and keep West around as Port Charles' new hurricane! I would watch her anyday and everyday over Laura Wright.

Great episode today. Loved Luke "punking" Spinelli; and who knew Tyler Christopher and Jane Elliot would work so well together?

So who's watching Sam? RH or ME?

Well, then you didn't know her during her time at GL. EGO was her middle name.

Other than being brunettes I don't see any similarity between Morgan/Rafe and the Ford brothers. The Ford brothers looked like young men and had developed bodies. Rafe/Morgan look like virginal teens who have never lifted any weights.

Tyler looks fatter in the face than Sean Kanan. But he's clearly been working out with his cousin Drew. Wonder if he's back on the steroids?Back when he was (poorly) portraying the Nikolas lookalike Conner Bishop in 2004 or 2005, he was clearly juicing up. Seems to be enjoying showing off his fat-fit muscled up body as one poster above termed it.

Clearly also has been getting spray tanned regularly. Wonder if he and Eric Marsolf on Days go to the same place?

His hair issues go back for a long time. He had a guest spot on CSI in 2002 or so and had a massively receding hairline. So, not clear if he's gotten plugs or wearing a wig. There was a commercial on SoapNet for a fan gathering and Tyler was seen diving into the pool, so I tend to think he's got plugs.

The tattoo on his left arm is distracting if only because it covers so much of his deltoid.

r159 I have never been a fan of Steve Burton or the Jason character. But to rewrite history now and claim Jason isn't the actual son of Alan and Susan Moore would be a slap in the face to fans. I would be very opposed to it.

That would be such an insult to the show's legacy, on par with Guza's rewriting history to make Rick Webber a serial philanderer back in 2002 as a mere plot device to get Laura off the show.

Sure hope Ron has enough sense not to go there, especially if its just to tie Roger Howarth to the Qs. (although Roger would probably fit in nicely with the Q antics).

A good triangle is when you like all three characters and you like both combinations. This one's got all of that. Not easy to make me care about a teen triangle LOL but they set this one up great (all the TJ and Molly stuff over the last year, the Rafe stuff with his mom getting killed the day he was starving and Molly treated him to lunch, etc.)

And Epiphany,Lawd....just seems like a tired retread of the black mama consoling the poor troubled white folk. I do like her scenes with Patrick/Jason Thompson however...they should take a lesson from the British soaps- few years ago,Holby City had a heavyset black woman in the same type of role but she got the chance to really be integral to the storyline,not just an after thought. And the gay male nurse Felix...I dont think I have to go there...i saw a spark of an explosive storyline with Felix and Milo,and chance to really be competive and break some new ground but I know they would never go there!

There's nothing racial about any of this. How many times did Johnny Z punch somebody over a girl or has somebody else gotten jealous over something and acted badly? How does that make TJ a "black teen thug"? That's showing YOUR racism.

You people are looking WAY too hard for something to get your knickers in a twist. Why does Shawn work for Sonny? Military background. Why do Milo and Max? Why did Jason? How does that make Shawn's job all of the sudden "weird?" How does the fact that he's black make him "Sonny's whipping boy?" Damn you people are backwards.

by Anonymousreply 17805/11/2013

r175 has a point, but it's easy to read a little undercurrent of racism only because of the lack of black characters in all the predominantly white cast soaps. But I see what r175 is saying. Would we be happy if black characters showed no sign of anger, aggression, turmoil or insecurity? Just because TJ is jealous and violent over Rafe's intrusion in his relationship with Molly doesn't mean he is a political statement on the African-American. It just makes him human. Would it be different if Rafe was the one who hit TJ? If it is, there is something wrong with us if we think that is more acceptable.

I think the story is taking a twist on the expected state of things in which homeless Rafe is actually the victim of bullying from a middle-class kid, whereas conventional tradition would have the middle-class kid (whatever his skin color) to be above that kind of violent aggression and the homeless kid who was brought up in an unbalanced state of affairs to be the physical threat. We know that just because you were brought up middle class doesn't prevent anyone from being a bully/violent.

And to the poster who thinks Molly is too "plain" to be the object of two guys' affections, you obviously do not travel amongst the heterosexual set. I am always amazed by how hot straight guys prefer the simple plain mommy-in-a-making than the hot model-type. TJ and Rafe, both from unstable home backgrounds, are fighting for preferred safe domestic virgin, not fantasy wild-child whore.

Hannah: So what brings you to Port Charles? Family?

Matthew: Possibly. I've been here before but the older I get, the more I realize there are questions in my life that I'm lacking the answers to and the only place I'll seem to be able to get them is in Port Charles.

Hannah: Ah. Another person searching through life looking for answers?

Matthew: Well, I've suffered a lot of losses in my life and you know, I'd like to find some peace for once.

Hannah: I can relate.

Matthew: Oh, shoot. I've got to run. I've got an appointment with Dr. Quartermaine over at General Hospital.

Hannah: Oh, are you a doctor?

Matthew: I am. Maybe I'll see you around sometime...?

~~~~~ Regarding the script for Lucy's daughter Christina, it seems she is not happy being in Port Charles and resents having a mother with a reputation for being a kook.

Wow, I hate all of their characters already. Bovina is just insipid and annoying. There are actually attractive and talented actresses in Hwood who would kill for a shot at GH, and they give it to her twice! And they are starting the hate relationship with Michael from the start, but how can they have a romance with first cousins? That's rather twisted. And John and Todd just looks ridiculous.

by Anonymousreply 22105/14/2013

I'd usually say "let's wait and see where it's going", but I have to admit that the whole re-intro of these actors has been diappointing already. KA's "Kiki" is just f'in annoying, ME looks lacklustre and ridiculous (do we have to go through the Caleb/Stephen-lookalike fiasco again?!) and RH is nothing if not a walking anti-climax (always was to me).

The whole CHEW shenanigans is worthy of James Reilly's worst moments. Almost embarrassing. And what the hell is wrong with poisoning the CHEW's panel? They should all drop dead, the whole talentless lot of them.

I do like the chemistry between Duell and Bryan Craig. They act like brothers. I look forward to them developing a good relationship.

Sonny's airplane monologue (for what is a discussion with Shawn but a monologue) was enough to send me into the kitchen looking for a knife to slit my wrists. MB just sleepwalks through his scenes. But it was interesting to see someone from Port Charles actually flying to their destination. I guess no one told him about Samantha Stephens Airlines.

Tuesday's episode was probably the poorest one since Ron took the reigns as headwriter. Very insipid.

Reintroducing the Llanview Three in a single episode was a very bad decision. I thought they were going to do it one at a time over the course of a week.

So, between nuMorgan and the Llanview Three and all the new sets, I felt like I was watching a completely new show.

Not the least bit interested in any of these characters. Only thing intriguing is exactly who Roger is playing.

While I've never been critical of Kristen Alderson in the past, this new Kiki character really shows that as Starr, she was essentially playing herself. She already seems in over her head as Kiki. Perhaps she'll improve.

Greg vaughan rescued me from being the next victim( there were dozens of us locked up in the house) however every time i was about to get intimate with him I would turn into Becky hurst. Even in my dreams Lucky loves liz :( and nik just uses me for booty calls.( I should note it's tyler circa early 2000's so he was near his peak physically)

In the end the killers got set on fire and we escaped due to an especially hard kicked soccer Ball.

They still have to keep it in production and keep paying the license fee every year, R313 or it will revert back to ABC.

It's like a 15 year lease - if they don't pay, the landlord (ABC) can kick them out and take back the property.

Otherwise, if PP went bankrupt after one year and the shows were in limbo for the next 14 years, nobody would remember them by the time ABC could do anything with them. ABC would never make that deal - nobody would.

Bottom line: if PP can't stay in production and pay the yearly license fee, the rights go back to ABC.

They don't do that anymore, r318. My biggest complaint about the show is the 10 minute scenes chopped up into 5-second pieces. It does hurt the continuity and emotional build-up of a scene. But we are lviing in a Brave New Attentionless-Span World (you know what I mean).

Geary and Elliot sizzle together, but there is absolutely no sexual chemistry. Elliot is Geary's fag-hag, the woman who loves a homosexual and he can never reciprocate. Geary can never convince me he wants to fuck the brains out of Elliot, but, whether or not he likes it, he always gives that impression when he is with Francis (despite the tension between them or his own orientation in real-life). He even had that raw sexual vibe with Hughes (although she acted like she didn't want to fuck him).

Geary and Elliot are great as frenemies and their chemistry shines, but yesterday's scene put it all in a nutshell for me: Tracy would love to have been Luke's Laura but she never will be, and Luke just wants Tracy as a safety net/beard-type. It was very well done and beautifully introspective.

I wish they would stop trying to make Shawn and Alexis happen. It's just about booty call, folks. So just write it that and stop trying to make it into a love story.

I'm so over this Howarth stuff. Who the hell cares who he is.

Easton and Monaco have smokin' hot chemistry no matter who he plays. He never fails to wake her up and bring her back to life. I love how Silas Clay leans against doorways with smouldering fuck-me looks like John McBain did. Not much method going into that acting.

The Falconeri girls are fun. But it's hard to think they would ever let Peter Falk come between them.

RC's pacing is so bad. He drops stories for months and when he comes back to them the viewer has moved on. It's his biggest flaw

by Anonymousreply 33405/22/2013

r335 If you think Ron's pacing is bad, you should have watched Santa Barbara under the Dobsons.

Wild plots would reign for three-four days, then be dropped for months and then suddenly resurrected for three-four days, then dropped again.

Watching Santa Barbara often gave you whiplash.

But I agree, Ron's pacing has been off especially in the past few months. Between all the 50th anniversary hoopla and getting the Llanview Three off the show in March only to bring them back as new characters in May, the storytelling has been uneven.

Santa Barbara would also start stuff but never finish them.

Here's the other one, R360:

by Anonymousreply 36205/24/2013

r361, the difference is that Olivia was a clear-cut villain who was never painted as a tormented anti-heroine. She also never took the show over as the PTB's darling. And she didn't last more than a decade holding sway over the show as its one main focus.

Sonny represents the darkest chapter of General Hospital history in which a criminal and killer became the (anti)hero of the show; more than that, he became the show itself - we saw history fucked, morality thrown out the window, and crime glorified in all its depressing and darkest characteristics. Vets were run rickshaw over, characters we recognized were compromised to slavishly honor the almighty Sonny and his cohort Jason, and a show we once loved showed nothing but contempt for its long-time fans.

BIG difference between the Jeromes (all of whom died or were killed) and the Corinthoses.

Frank is smart in that he has a large percentage of the cast on recurring. That doesn't mean they don't get story It's a more flexible and leaner way to run the show now that the supply of name actors is far in excess of the # of shows.

John Aniston on Days has always been recurring - never signed a contract. On GH many of the vets are recurring. I hope Spinelli is on GH for a long time b/c I like him but story-wise it makes more sense to have him on recurring and just use him when needed.

So, all four members of the band Port Chuck are now gone?

Very interesting.

I always enjoyed Spinelli. Will be sorry to see him go. I know he wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed his quirky character and his unique usage of the English language.

But they began watering the character down as soon as Garin Wolf became headwriter. And it further deteriorated under Ron. they both took the fun quirks away from the character in an attempt to make him more mainstream -- no longer refering to himself in the third person, seldom using his nicknames for all the other characters, no longer mentioning his obsession with orange colored foods, etc.

Apparently, Guza was the only one who could do Spinelli justice, much like Doug Marland was the only one who could truly do the quirky, movie-fantasizing character of Nola on GL justice.

by Anonymousreply 38005/25/2013

I think any writer who creates a character has a special feel for said character. Spinelli's quirks were cute in short spurts, not for a full-time character, which is why he got so grating. Guza and RC sure have that in common - planting their favorites onscreen way too much until everyone gets sick of them.

Thanks, r385. I remember that Lucas came out as gay some years ago, but he did not have much story. Ben Hogestyn, stepson of Drake Hogestyn on Days, played Lucas during that time. Ben was a good actor- better than his stepfather- but as I said did not have much to do in his gay storyline. If Lucas is ever brought back the character could easily be rewritten as straight, since the gay storyline had no impact.

In her recent visit, Bobbie mentioned that Lucas was dating and still looking for Mr. Right (a statement that then seagued into a scene with Felix). There is every intention of bringing Lucas back, and RC will obviously keep the character gay.

Nice scene with Luke and Tracy, but I was quite disturbed by the outpouring of love Luke had for Tracy. "You're the Bonnie to my Clyde ..."???

Luke is a drunken loser who went from Savior of the World to a replica of his late deadbeat father who drank himself to death. What a catch! Luke was only confessing his love to Anna Devane a few months ago. He always comes back to old reliable, how romantic is that! Tracey finally got her smarts back. However, TG looked not too good today; either makeup or he is still battling his bad back issues. Glad he is offscreen for awhile.

The entire scene of RH/Franco/Not Franco/Jason/Who the Hell is he, was some of the worst writing I have ever seen. I expected bats to start flying around and a voiceover proclaiming "It was a dark and stormy night" RC needs to write for the Nikolodean Channel. He is just too juvenile.

It was the last moments of the show; the fallout tomorrow from his appearence will reveal all. It's called getting people to tune into tomorrow. Even right at the edge of the revelation, we are still left guessing.

Interesting they made a point of giving Monica today a scene in which she questioned why she wasn't invited to this party (while RH eavesdropped on her conversation with AJ). Why didn't they just have her interact with the guests? That would have been a nice thing to do for Monica - giving her a chance to play with Sonny and Carly, the two people she despises the most in Port Charles.

r448, recasts asks us to suspend reality all the time. It's up to the actors to make it as truthful as possible. Constance Towers looked nothing like Elizbaeth Taylor or even had Taylor's mystical Greek goddess quality in Taylor's original interpretation of Helena Cassadine, but we came to accept Towers' more campy soap-matriarch-gone-psycho portrayal through the years. What helped in this more domestic portrayal of Helena was that Taylor was never going to play the role again.

I'm not liking the Franco stuff at all. Convenient rewriting (Franco clears himself of all rapes), implausible potentials (Carly and Franco?!!!), glorification of yet another sociopathic personality (I'm getting tired of these type of characters).

Franco seemed to be a great choice for RH to play because RH could be paired with the same characters Todd was (Sam, Heather, Sonny, Carly), but it's all too much to swallow. We know Franco killed people. Are we to expect DVDs showing he didn't those too? And I amn absolutely HATING that we are revisiting Guza's material - on top of having to sit through yet another Jason lovefest.

KM is the only one surprising me with the Haunted Star scenes. She can really take charge of scenes when she wants to.

SK needs to lose a little weight - he looked a little out of breath with the physical scenes.

Meanwhile, we have to sit and listen to Lulu go through her sexual perverse tale of woe while listening to Michael's. Weird show. I have to question RC's sensibility. He seems to be as creepy-freaky as James Reilly was.

IA, VOTN, that RH is having a good time, but he is being paid quite handsomely to see to that I, a viewer, am having a good time and I'm not. RH is playing this just like Todd and clowning it up just like Todd. Nothing worse than a silly, comical villain. The ridiculous hair sure doesn't help make him come off as serious. I don't watch soaps to get a good chuckle.

I've watched RH since he began his soap career on Loving and I just don't know what happened to him but somehow between 1998 and 2000 to now he has lost his talent and ability to create a new character. Paul Ryan on ATWT wasn't acting like a clown but he wasn't all that different from Todd.

I would blame the writers but this is with writer, after writer, after writer. Do they all only see RH as capable of playing a clown or is that all RH is now capable of playing? I honestly don't know.

r501, what happened between early RH and later RH was the industry changed in the course of his career - writing became sloppier, stories more sensational, sociopaths and psychopaths became the stars of the shows. Camp set in to become the norm - soaps no longer took themselves seriously; no one was thinking of past or future, just present. Meanwhile, people who knew nothing about the industry inherited shows that took generations to build only to scrap the history for the 21st century and shove them into holes they didn't fit in order to facilitate superficial advertising demographics and Generation XYZ formulas. Budgets were cut, rehearsal times were diminished into almost nothing - the actor these shows needed to rely on were the ticking time bombs or the larger-than-life personalities who needed little time to exact a method but seemed off-the-wall, high velocity, cynical, improvisational, not willing to take it all so seriously. Before, these kinds of actors were the recurring, or the supporting, or the comic relief. Now, they are the stars.

Rachel and Carl's love story was great for sensational high melodrama, but it made absolutely no sense to me that she would have fallen in love with the man who tried to murder her and her beloved Mac.

I'm still thinking that this is not the real Franco. Jason was not one of the twins. has an interesting item in its Rumourville:

"Illusion is the name of the game.

If Howarth's character looks just like Franco (to everyone he meets), and perhaps leads everyone to believe he is Franco (and looking for redemption), but he is NOT Franco....what could that mean?

Was that an anvil when Monica and AJ were in the Q crypt, and Monica mentions that Jason had not used the Quartermaine name in a long time? Why did Howarth's character involve himself in the relish wars which involves the future of the Quartermaine family fortune?

Why did Franco and Roger Howarth's character appear identical, but neither look identical to Jason?"

RC is either very sensitive or completely tone deaf. Sometimes in the same episode. Case in point: He hears viewer complaints about Geary improvising drinking at Tracy's when it is the show's stance that Luke stopped drinking after mowing down Jake (since Lady Tony in his infinite wisdom has gone on record claiming Luke is not an alcoholic and doesn't have a problem) and writes a new story where half the cast nail Luke for his boozing and he delivers liver disease and may never be able to drink again.

At the same time Lucy is suddenly a tour guide taking tourists on a nickel journey to where her friend was brutally murdered. And Franco's crimes are washed away so Cartini can try re-pairing Roger and Laura Wright.

The best plan was for Roger to play Tony Cassadine and Alexandra Quartermain's son. That would have tied the two families.

But there are endless possibilities.

1. He could have been Edward's illegitimate son. Edward was presumed dead in the Carribbean for over a year in the late 80s. He could have sired a son during that time.

3. Susan Moore could have had triplets -- Jason, Franco and RH's character. Would have been totally in keeping for Heather to withhold that detail when she confessed to selling Franco to Betsy Frank.

3. He could be the son of Jimmy Lee Holt.

4. He could be the son of Justis Ward.

5. Alan sired another child during one of his many affairs. Perhaps Rhonda Wexler got pregnant and gave the baby up for adoption.

6. Tracy gave birth to another child while she was off the show. Perhaps Tracy went to Springfield and had an affair with Ross Marler. Or perhaps Tracy went to Salem and had an affair with Justin Kiriakis. Or perhaps Tracy went to Pine Valley and had an affair with Palmer Courtlandt.

The only one good thing about any of this is Maura West.

As for Ava and AJ, they did have good chemistry, something Y&R fans are aware of from Kanan and West's brief but unrealized flirtation over at Y&R. But (as what happens when the canvas is hugely overcrowded with characters and wonderful actors), AJ already has a whore to his Elizabethan virgin in Carly.

Franco was possessed by a yellow fear monster.

VoTN, the poster obviously meant a worse retcon in the history of soaps.

[quote] Commenters on Daytime Confidential fucking hate this storyline. The talentless, comma, splicing Jamey Giddens has not weighed in officially--or, you know, not any more than the 400 pounds he's always weighing in at.

I can hardly wait for Fat Jamey's next podcast. I live to hear his Flip-Wilson-doing-Geraldine mumble.

I know, I just thought it would be funny.

Okay, what about Erica Kane's abortion that became a fetus transplant?

by Anonymousreply 55506/01/2013

I think the abortion take-back is the winner, VOTN. It was a brave and groundbreaking story when it was told, retconned many years later by cowards who couldn't tell a good story if their lives depended on it.

Yes, Erica Kane's rewritten abortion was one of the worst; as was everything about the Rick Webber attic murder.

I forgot about Erica's abortion retcon. That was not only ridiculous but insulting to the writers at the time who wrote such a groundbreaking and controversial story.

Erica's unabortion should never of happen in the first place, but then they did not even mine its dramatic potential. Once Josh found out, they did not really explore any of the fall out, instead they put Josh in Babe's orbit and he mooned over her instead of having any significant scenes with Erica. They quickly brushed aside any complex dynamics between Erica and the Martins and instead used Jeff Martin as a quick way to break up Erica's marriage and rewriting Erica and Jeff's history. I believe Josh found out his Uncle Tad tortured and killed his adopted father, but went nowhere with it, because that would have taken time away from Babe. It really showed how much the writing had declined since Erica's last surprise child, Kendell showed up ten years earlier.

The unabortion story was an insult to the shows history and prior writers, and then not only was it an insult it was a rather boring and uninspired insult. They only wanted the shock value and ignored exploring the various Kane and Martin family dynamics. This story, Tad's burying Madden alive, and the canonization of Babe were kind of the last straws and finally pushed me to completely stop watching (the show was already declining, but it seemed to reach the point of no return at this time).

by Anonymousreply 56606/01/2013

r566 It also didn't help that the writers did nothing to define Josh Madden's character. Other than being Erica Kane's unabortion, they didn't give much thought to who Josh was.

First he was a TV producer, then he became a doctor. Later I think he was a lawyer. At some other point, I think they had him being an airline pilot. Then finally, he was some business genius who was doing Zack's books at the casino and stole money.

by Anonymousreply 56706/01/2013

While the unabortion was awful, the retconning of Erica's age was just as bad. By the end of the series Erica was the same age as Tad, Jesse and Angie.

r559, someone who feels the need to declare something boring is more than likely bored wih themselves.

If you were genuinely bored and not a boring person, you would just leave without making a remark.

Spoilers for this week:

Laura forms a new friendship with Lucy.

Duke is suspicious of Ava and her connection to the Jerome family.

Kevin doesn't want Lucy to know about Christina's numerous troubles. Christina might not want to listen to Lucy but she will listen to another Port Charles lady who gets through to her.

Sonny, Carly and Shawn conspire to take out Franco once and for all, but will it all go according to plan? You can be sure he won’t go down without a fight!

The custody battle for Rafe heats up this week, and Silas has a courtroom surprise for Sam that shows he means business! He also shares some dark suspicions that could turn Sam’s world upside down forever – but is he telling the truth? Outside the courtroom, the love triangle between Molly, Rafe and TJ is turned on its head when another interested party gets in the mix.

And do you think Britt is just going to stand blithely by while Patrick and Sabrina go out on their first date? Not a chance! She has some tricks up her sleeve that might make Patrick think twice about choosing Sabrina.

Meanwhile, Franco may have found an unlikely ally in the Quartermaine family, while his own family continues to spar as Ava and Kiki’s relationship further combusts. In other Kiki news, her love life also takes an unexpected turn this week – never a dull moment!

by Anonymousreply 57306/02/2013

Alejandro Jerome - the name RC tweeted about some weeks ago and everyone assumed it was RH's new character - is most probably the new mobster coming to town who will be Sam's father.

by Anonymousreply 57406/02/2013

The awful thing about the Franco stuff is you can feel the writers' intentions on the screen. That's a sign of bad writing. You should never be aware of the writer, but with Franco it's like "See! Franco isn't so bad! See!"

by Anonymousreply 57506/02/2013

I think that depends on your point of view, R576. Personally, I find the new evidence of "goodness" suspicious and still think he's doing a big mind fuck on everyone. I think that's the real point, to keep the viewer off-balance.

by Anonymousreply 57606/02/2013

R577 your point of view makes the most sense. The audience might still see evil Franco while he is publicly doing a mea culpa for past misdeeds. It is the only way to sell this and to make the character interesting. Reformed bad guys are always unbelievable not to mention dull.

Apparently GH is going to be mob central this summer and fall. Somewhere Bob Guza is laughing his ass off.

by Anonymousreply 57806/02/2013

Roger Howarth should never have stayed with GH, people just can't see past the two elephants in the room - Todd Manning and James Franco - I'm sorry but they can't. I wish Days had offered RH something. That show is in dire need of a great male actor. Why isn't Roger content to just stay on OLTL? Surely he doesn't need the money at this point in his career? He's a soap opera superstar.

But even soap superstars only make about 100-150k a year.

A newbie making about $1000 an episodes makes about 100-150k per year.

Typical pay for a vet can be between 500-750k per year. The superstars make well into the million(s).

Guza laughing his unemployed ass off? Who cares. He was the one who ruined the show to begin with. RC is continuing the destruction. Don't be surprised if the Balkan resurfaces from the undead.

R583 and R584 have outdated data.

There are only about 10 people still making the kind of money R584 mentions in daytime. And RH isn't one of them.

Eric Braeden at Y&R is one of the few remaining stars making that kind of bank. There's probably a few people in the 250K range: some high senority folks at Y&R, maybe Geary (he'd be the same as Braeden but takes five months off).

The next tier of 175-200K would probably include Dee Dee Halls, Maurice Benard, Katherine Kelly Lang, a few more Y&R folks.

Most daytime stars are making more in the 75K-150K range. Younger actors are probably making at the low end of those numbers.

[quote]He was the one who ruined the show to begin with.

GH started to fall apart in the late 70s when it ceased to be a hospital drama and became a vehicle for Tony Geary. It got worse throughout the 80s with the hair models who starred in GH's cheap and awful knockoff of The Avengers.

There were still a lot of hospital stories in the late 70s/early 80s. Steve, Audrey, Anne, Jeff, Rick, Lesley, Monica, Alan, Bobbie, Amy, Diana, Peter, Gail, Noah, Dan, Ruby, and Jesse were all based out of he hospital. And I'm probably missing some. There were stories both in and outside of the hospital, but I'd say about 75% of the characters were from the hospital. At least until around '83 or so...
