Port Charles in the Time of Corona

As production gears up to cautiously resume, how would we like to see the issue of the COVID-19 pandemic approached? Work it into the storylines in such a way that reflects life as we currently know it, or keep Port Chuck as a sort of fantasy island unto itself, away from the strife and madness of the real world?

GH returns to taping today with new episodes set to air on 8/3.

That is a quick turn around but according to their press release they set on a few new episodes before the lock down.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 407/22/2020

After the episodes they sat on air, they will need to break up Nina and Jax.

No way will those two actors be able to convincingly work together after their little twitter exchange during the early lock down.

They had zero chemistry before that, it would take Oscar worthy acting to hide their disdain at this point.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 507/22/2020

Wise that they sat on a few episodes when they closed out of new episodes for the coronavirus hiatus. Smart to go out on a cliffhanger of the trial rather than have all that resolved.

Although at this point, its been so long since I've seen a new episode, I really don't care what happens to those characters. Wonder how many other viewers feel the same way and don't return. The return ratings will be telling.

Show will really need to amp up the excitement of the storytelling to get some viewers back now that we're all out of the habit of watching.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 607/22/2020

I forgot already, what was the trial about?

^ Dopey baby Wiley's custody, with the battle of the fake marriages, Michael and Willow vs. Nelle and Julian.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 807/22/2020

Well they need to get Micheal to show dong

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 907/22/2020

They need to just give the kid to wolves, already.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 1007/22/2020

Hi. Sorry. Dropping in haven't watched in a while. Regarding the fake marriages... Isn't Julian about 30 years older than those other people?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 1107/22/2020

Indeed he is but they have nothing else for WDV to do so...

The other soaps can probably get away with not addressing the current situation, but for a soap largely staged in a hospital, they'll likely need to address the new reality in some ways, maybe background wearing masks in the hospital

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 1707/23/2020

Yeah but the hospital is only used for random meetups. There are hardly any extras in the back like it used to be. They don’t even have the teens volunteering there anymore.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 1807/23/2020

I could totally see them creating some other type of epidemic as a way to be able to tap into the general concept and show characters masking, distancing, etc., especially in the hospital scenes. From the production point of view, it's probably better to stay away from the specifics of COVID-19, since information on that changes so rapidly that they might end up sending wrong messages with obsolete info.

Since Dr. Hamilton Finn is an infectious disease specialist, this could be right in his wheelhouse. Hell, maybe we'd even get an extra-special appearance by our dear, beloved Roxy as the comfort animal ambassador to the children's ward.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 1907/23/2020

They really should go with an epidemic story line and bring in notorious Dr. David Hayward to assist Dr. Finn.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2007/23/2020

[quote]They really should go with an epidemic story line and bring in notorious Dr. David Hayward to assist Dr. Finn.

Ooh, tension! So when Hayden comes back to reclaim her place with Violet, and, by extension, Finn, David will be there to pick up the pieces with Anna. So many possibilities.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2107/23/2020

I don't understand why they didn't bring in David Hayward years ago. He's the connection to AMC they should have utilized long ago, like they did the OLTL people.

David H cold have been working for Helena for all these years!

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2207/23/2020

About the only thing that could get me to give the borefest that is current GH another shot is if they brought David Hayward on. His character would be great on the show, for all the reasons listed above.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2307/23/2020

Lahsa fever could come back. Paging Anne Logan!

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2407/23/2020

An epidemic story would be a great excuse to kill off the deadweight since they refuse to do a much needed time jump.

Doing an infectious disease story makes perfect sense until you realize they'd pick one of the Corinthos family as the victim. We'd get days of the Corinthos family ringing their hands & moaning while the hospital staff were relegated to being no more than extras.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2707/23/2020

I think GH should do a virus sl that mirrors what we are going through. Play it up for dramas! Have characters be isolated. And for sure kill off half of this shows dead weight. Let’s give the doctors and nurses on this show something to do...

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2807/24/2020

Since PC is in NYS they should show the medical staff not having enough PPE the way it was in March - first half of May. They should be very realistic about it and not do stupid plot devices. I'd say let some medical staff die as what really happened in NYS but there are so few actors as medical staff these days I don't know who they could kill off. Too bad Sonny and Carly aren't medical staff. Bobby of course is but I wouldn't want to see her killed off or Monica as we need our vets.

I want a bigger story for Finn. I'm one of those who like him and I have liked him since he was a vampire on PC.

P.S. I love it that our beloved Roxy is being such a good citizen. Then again what else would you expect from our girl and the real star of the show.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 2907/24/2020

R25 maybe they looked at Days "time jump" and how it in the end didn't really work out the way they had hoped and decided against doing it and also not to have Days fans accuse them of "copying" Days " unique and never before seen twist"lol.

r31 Desperate Housewives did a 5 year time junp in season 5. It’s hardly unique.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 3307/24/2020

What happened between Nina and Jax on twitter? I follow DeVry (so hot!) and Alexis on insta and they are very vocal about mask wearing and believing the experts. Anti Trump and vocally liberal. DeVry will go off on Trump lovers who tell him to "stick to acting".

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 3407/24/2020

^^^^

CW made a very pointed tweet about how it was abhorrent to be profiting off of the pandemic. That seemed to be in response to Ingo posting that he & his wife were selling designer masks.

Also, shitty considering his initial tweets about the COVID not being real.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 3507/24/2020

It's official. New GH episodes start airing on Aug. 3.

GH just got back into the studio this week, so that will be a quick turn around -- two weeks from taping to air date.

Given the distinct possibility that LA could go back on lockdown any day now due to skyrocketing numbers, I wonder how wise it resume airing new episodes so quickly.

Speaking of DOOL, several actors have recently announced that they're not going back to the show. Any chance some of them land at GH?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 3807/24/2020

R38 I hope not, unless GH cleans house. The GH cast is too bloated as it is.

GV is footloose and fancy free. *Paging Lucky Spencer*

Did he leave on good terms or was there drama?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4007/24/2020

Seems like he was pushed out. TG was never a fan and wanted JJ back in the role.

Now with TG gone and JJ seeming like he never wants to come back, it could be time for Lucky to make a return

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4107/24/2020

Well Nina needs to end of with Valentine anyway. Jax is just a distraction IMHO. Jax is not really a likable character and seems like a boring lover.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4207/24/2020

I really hope they do include Covid and mask wearing in the storylines. I would like to see the anxiety and uncertainty played out in a drama.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4307/24/2020

What was Jax’s storyline before shutdown? I don’t remember him being around much.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4407/25/2020

He and Nina were hooking up. I think thats about it.

Do we think FV will pursue Kristian Alfonso?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4607/29/2020

She would be expensive, no? What character would she be good for?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4707/29/2020

^^Dr. Sarah Webber?

Although FV likes to create new useless characters rather than capitalize on history.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4807/29/2020

They'd be better off spending the money on RB for a Hayden return. She fills the void as Liz' sister now, and her return would drive story on several fronts, impacting Finn, Anna, Nikolas, Ava and others.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 4907/29/2020

I suppose it would be too much to ask for all three Webber sisters to be on canvas...

I recommend dumping Peter, Sam and Jax to free up some cash. I don't know how much a Sasha and or a Dev makes but every little bit helps towards a Budig salary.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5007/29/2020

I like KA but isn't she about a decade too old to be Sarah? And I agree Budig is worth the money.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5107/29/2020

It wouldn't surprise me if we see a bunch of new characters created to fulfill diversity requirements. Pt. Chuck currently has a well fleshed-out extended black family, plus assorted other characters like Epiphany, Felix, Brick, Andrea, but they are definitely lacking in the Latin and Asian department.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5207/29/2020

I don’t think Budig is worth the money at all. Hayden is so pointless. Send Finn away with her and free up even more cash. They’re both useless.

If anything, Liz Hendrickson should’ve been Sarah but the character has never worked.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5307/29/2020

Budig is a goddess! She is worth all the money they can throw at her.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5407/29/2020

I meant Tamara Braun not Liz Hendrickson.

I still stand by my opinion on Budig. lol.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5507/29/2020

I would love to have Budig back on GH. I have no desire to ever see TB or EH again.

Budig has chem with everyone: Easton, Herbst, Turner, nuNik, Ingo.

Tamara used to be good back when she played Carly but she was awful as Kim. Just a total drain. EH is a good actress but her character has zero connections to anyone on the show.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5607/30/2020

Budig is great! Bring her back! Time to lose Monaco.

As for Sarah Weber Let’s get an age appropriate actress to play the role. Allison Sweeney? Gina Tognoni?

Maybe unpopular but it’s time for Laura Wright to go and for Tamara to be brought back as the real Carly! They gave Michael Easton how many tries...

And if JJ won’t come back as Lucky let’s get Greg Vaughan back. His Lucky comes across as a grown ass man and viable Leading character!!!

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5707/30/2020

By now the kid who plays Finn's daughter is probably as tall as he is.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5807/30/2020

Gina T., Rebecca B. and Becky H. would make a great sister trio.

Also and it can't be repeated enough *Paging Dr. David Hayward*.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 5907/30/2020

Wright has never been Carly but Monaco should’ve been gone YEARS ago. They should have killed her off during the Sam/Sonny baby story. Her case is the most baffling to me. She can’t act AND she’s clearly miserable. Why is she still around? Who does she have dirt on?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6007/30/2020

KA is in an age range where they already have NLG, Cunthia Watros and Snaggletooth.

She could be fun as a short term character but yes, she's 10-15 years too old for Sarah.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6107/30/2020

Forget TB taking over as Carly. TB has lost whatever chops she had when she played Carly. I would love to have Gina T. as a Carly. She pulled off a miracle on YR. She made me care about & root for Phyllis. I detest MS' version. Gina might make me like Carly but I love Gina too much to have her have to suffer with being paired with Mo.

I would just be happy with RB back as Hayden. Sarah can stay gone & for pity's sake so can Lucky.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6207/30/2020

I hope Lucky stays gone forever. He’s been a miserable character since the revisit of Laura’s rape back in the 90s. I’ve never understood the fascination.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6307/30/2020

R63 yes, I haven't understood the appeal. They all but ruined Jackson in the role for me, and frankly Young and Vaughan were so NOT Lucky that they could have been playing any Joe off the street.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6407/30/2020

Well then how about KA as Liz's mother who ghosted her circa the Clinton Administration?

Not that we NEED KA or anyone new but just based on FV's history of collecting soapless soap actors with name recognition.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6507/30/2020

I’m all for Liz finally having a mother - and Becky Herbst finally getting meaty material on the show - but they need to clean house before adding anyone else to the cast. But I’m also a jaded Liz fan. I thought Becky would finally get her moment with the return of Liz’s rapist a few years back and we see how that went.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6607/30/2020

KA would actually work agewise as Liz's mother. And if she was a brittle bitch it would explain her lengthy absence in Liz's life.

Or maybe KA could be Liz's stepmother, explaining why Jeff Webber has been away so long.

Someone here had the suggestion of Robert Newman as a Jeff Webber recast and Colleen Zenk as his wife and I thought that was a great one, Colleen even looks like Becky (or rather vice versa).

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6707/30/2020

there is no way KA would be Liz's mom where she would have 3 grandchildren and quite possibly could be a great grandma if Cameron knocks someone up... Wasn't she super upset about becoming a grandma on DOOL

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6807/30/2020

If that bitch wants to pay her mortgage she better be ready to play Sophia in a GG reboot if needed.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 6907/30/2020

R67

Liz's mom was a brittle bitch to her. We heard of that early on when Liz was new to GH. Her mom was loving & supportive or Sarah but cold & critical of Liz. Her parents sent Sarah safely to Audrey's home to live but dumped Liz at a next door neighbor's in Colorado.

They have had no connection since. They never returned for her rape, her blindness, her dead son, etc...

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 7007/30/2020

I actually like LW as Carly, but only when she isn't actually around Sonny. The few times she is outside of Sonny's orbit, she is fine.

R89 Personally, I don't hate the new credits, after they slowed them down. I haven't liked any opening credits since they did away with the old ambulance pulling into GH. The last few ones, before this one were too dark.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 9407/31/2020

They should have updated the old ambulance one.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 10108/01/2020

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11208/02/2020

R112

If Billy/Kelly banged it definitely was a brief nothing serious thing. He has had a longterm girlfriend going back to before he came to GH.

I have no idea if Billy would have signed a new contract but I know for a fact GH did not offer him one.

A Brenda return?

Offsite Link
by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11408/02/2020

If VM is returning that means Peter is getting redeemed for the 20th time and will be paired with Carly.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11508/02/2020

Ugh. Could that be the big surprise in the first few minutes of the new show they hinted at?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11608/02/2020

How are they going to do the Nurses' Ball with Covid?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11708/02/2020

Probably with a lot of clever editing and camera tricks. Like showing the audience members from behind, so you can't see that they're wearing a mask and more solo numbers.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11808/02/2020

Maybe the big surprise is that Dante is back?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 11908/02/2020

I think VM is just trolling. And I wouldn’t say Dante is a big surprise. DZ has been begging for his job back for some time and they’ve mentioned Dante quite a lot. But whatever.

The audience for the NB already looks bare as hell. This is going to look even worse. And will there just be solos on stage? Just skip a year. They’re horrible anyway.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12008/02/2020

Why don't they use the Nurses Ball this year to help those destroyed by the Covid Virus as well as AIDS. They could talk about helping the unemployed and those who have no one to care for them at home or who can't afford masks and gloves and such or do a story about the hospital not having enough PPE to be safe. I think it would be a real waste and a shame not to use the show to do some good.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12108/02/2020

I also think the show should mention voting and registering to vote and show the young people saying how they can't wait until they turn 18 because voting is the most important thing a person can do. I wish the show could throw in a few digs at TraitorTrump but I know they can't do that unless they find a very clever way to get it in and then those actors for the traitor on the show like the POS who plays Jax can go fuck themselves if they don't like it.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12208/02/2020

Is Ingo wearing a mask?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12308/02/2020

R122 Talking about voting is fine, but the show should NOT take a position on any candidate. Their audience is already too small, they don't need to piss off anyone that might be watching. Also, I'm quite tired of everything being political. Some of us like having an escape, from everything, if only for an hour a day.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12408/02/2020

Is Covid even going to exist in the GH universe?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12508/02/2020

It would be interesting if they reference it but I doubt it.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12608/03/2020

So Sonny and Jason can find the vaccine and cure all of PC? No thanks.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12708/03/2020

I wonder how long TPTB have had their eye on Lindsey Hartley as a possible replacement...seems too easy that they were able to just slide Lindsey right in at a moment's notice without their having been prior consideration...

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12808/03/2020

Agreed R128. And I’m not exactly sure about specific protocol but wouldn’t she have to isolate for a certain time before reporting to set, get tested, etc. Doesn’t seem like they can just call her up and have her report the next day after Kelly was sent home. I think there’s more to the story.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 12908/03/2020

The recast actor would go through the same testing procedure that they all do on the show now. Take a test a day before you work. If you pass, you can show up on set.

The show needs to keep an ongoing list of possible short term replacements for all the leads. This is real life. Accidents can happen at any time and especially now if one of them fails a virus test.

They brought in a Maxie replacement for a couple of days during a crucial time just after Maxie had given birth

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13008/03/2020

That was the surprise? We already knew that.

So now they are chem testing Brook Lyn with Valentin? They just can't seem to find a match for this girl.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13108/03/2020

Amanda Setton is out temporarily as Brook Lynn due to pregnancy. They're going to get a temp recast.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13208/03/2020

Well, that was a terrible episode.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13308/03/2020

Well that explains Brook Lyn's wardrobe from day one.

They should bring in Chrishell Stause to fill in for Amanda and make GH a Justin Hartley's ex-wives reunion show.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13408/03/2020

If they're really going to resurrect her singing career, they need to get an actress who can sing. AS is OK as your generic sassy, troublemaker type, but I'm not sure she's right for the Brook Lyn role. She comes off like a petty, high school-age mean girl.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13508/03/2020

If they keep AS in the role they need to pair her with an older man, such as Valentin or Julian. She was best on OLTL when she was paired with Clint.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13608/03/2020

Do you think some of it was filmed before the shutdown, like the opening kiss? And I don’t think Dante was supposed to be back earlier, I think that cake about later so was inserted into this episode that would have been different in the spring.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13708/03/2020

GH kept a few episodes filmed before lockdown to air now. Except for the Dante scenes, the rest was pre-lockdown

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13808/03/2020

Why did Dante's room seem like a jail cell? I thought he's supposed to be in psych rehab.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 13908/03/2020

R139 it will probably be revealed that Cyrus is secretly holding Dante at that location though I could be wrong.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14008/03/2020

Chad’s GF just got fired from B&B. How long until she’s Christina Baldwin?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14108/03/2020

r141

I doubt it, someone wrote on another thread a very good writing about why we don't see legacy characters like Christina, Sarah et al... does anyone remember the thread or the gist

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14208/03/2020

She gets Chad's humungous cock, so don't feel too sorry for her.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14308/03/2020

Kelly was tossed off the GH set because she wasn't wearing a mask; however, she tested negative for COVID.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14408/03/2020

I'm surprised she didn't just reach down and pull off her panties to put on her face.

Oh, wait, she probably doesn't wear any.

But mommy said she was having breathing problems because she’s claustrophobic.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14808/03/2020

Rick Hearst revealed in a Locker Room interview that GH approached him about playing AJ in 1997. That would correspond with Sean Kanan being fired. So, it would seem that when he turned it down, they went to Billy Warlock

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 14908/03/2020

Can we keep awake Lindsey, please?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15008/04/2020

OK, something doesn't track- If today's ep is one of those which were produced prior to shutdown, why is Kelly's substitute already there? This tells me her leave clearly is NOT COVID-related as previously reported.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15108/04/2020

I wonder if the Sam/Alexis scenes were edited in? But I also think there has to be more to the story. HAS to be. And can we PLEASE keep her? I don’t particularly love the character but damn it was great not having the whisper mumbling thing. LH even resembles NLG. This could work. They’d be idiots to keep Monaco on.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15208/04/2020

I think some scenes were recorded after the shutdown and edited in. Remember before the shutdown they were stretching the episodes with flashbacks. I assume the new scenes took the place of the flashbacks. It is smart because it gave them some breathing room to get production ramped back up.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15308/04/2020

GH needs to have a in show contest on who can slap Carly the hardest

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15408/04/2020

Carly and Jason just need to fuck already.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15508/04/2020

"Carly and Jason just need to fuck already."

Sonny and Jason just need to fuck already -- Do you see how I fixed that for you?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15608/04/2020

R156 Fuck that. I don't want to see the midget mobster fucking anyone, male, female, trans, etc. Jason, at least still has a nice bod.

R152 I agree they need to sign Lindsay Hartley, immediately. It was amazing to see Sam played by someone who is actually awake.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15708/04/2020

I didn't care for her at all. Not only does she not look remotely related to that family, she seemed to be overcompensating by making her performance a little too OTT. It's like they read all the fan criticisms of KM and said "Do the opposite of that."

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15808/04/2020

NLG and LH resemble one another a lot more than NLG and KM.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 15908/04/2020

My rendition of Nurse Audrey March (Hardy) will be slapping the shit out of Carly on your screen very very soon.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16008/04/2020

Hearst still looks good.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16108/05/2020

Sorry Shearoun - Slapping scenes are now not allowed due to new regulations.

However, we do have a new storyline coming up where the Webber family worries that they can only Zoom to see nuAudrey due to the crisis in her nursing home.

Would your real life home care worker be available for background work?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16208/05/2020

Evidently, KM's mother has found Datalounge at R158

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16308/05/2020

What was all that business about Alexis' wrist? Did something happen IRL and they are covering for it or is this gonna be a storyline? (Carpal Tunnel leads to oxy dependency!)

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16408/05/2020

I think a hand injury is what started Alan's addiction and downward spiral. Oh, the heady days of living on skid row with a hooker for a best friend and protector. If they do something like that with Alexis, they're gonna have to bring back Coleman and the Bucket of Blood.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16508/05/2020

They cut the scene of Alexis falling. Not sure why.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16608/05/2020

I hate Sonny but those were great scenes with him and Liz today. I wish they’d use Herbst more.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16708/05/2020

Not sure what it was but Michael looked hotter today. I really want his dick of death.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16808/05/2020

It was his longer, darker hair. He looked like a grown-up for once.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 16908/05/2020

I agree with r140, I suspect Cyrus will somehow be involved with holding Dante captive. I also wonder how long GH will be able to keep someone of Jeff Kober's caliber.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17008/06/2020

Is Dante in a mental institution?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17108/06/2020

Just before the scene opened, they did an outside shot of the building with the caption "WSB Facility in Geneva, Switzerland" so I doubt Cyrus has any involvement. Wouldn't surprised me if he zeroed in on Dante after he returns, though, because he is going to be weak and vulnerable. The fact that he's Sonny's son would make it even more enticing.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17208/06/2020

I love Jeff Kober's portrayal of Cyrus. He has this wonderfully wry expression in his eyes when Cyrus pretends to be this law-abiding businessman but is in fact, laughing at how he's getting anyway with everything.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17308/06/2020

Brando and Cyrus in cahoots?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17408/06/2020

Yuk, another gross temporary recast! I like Dante's new doctor, though.

Is Cyrus' new place supposed to be Ava's old apartment? Because I don't remember her ever having that ugly fireplace.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17508/06/2020

KSt looks HORRIBLE. JFC. Who let her on camera like that. Her roots were black then it went to platinum then spots of pink.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 17708/06/2020

I understand that salon visits were probably restricted during that period, but she could have picked up a package of touch up dye at any drug store. It's not like she had some complex, multi-tonal color job, in fact it looked pretty flat and cheap. A darker shade of blonde might have blended out those roots better.

Bold & Beautiful seems to be adhering to strict six foot social distancing for its actors.

General Hospital not so much. While some scenes have the actors six feet or more apart, other scenes are clearly less than six. Some even like two feet.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 186Last Friday at 4:13 PM

I’ve noticed that too. They’ve been in each other’s faces, LW touched MB and then wiped tears from her eyes... the scene where Liz is done talking to Sonny and Carly thanks her, Herbst was practically scaling the wall trying to stand back. lol. Plus the NB coming up and the Ava party next week. They’ve even had more extras than they normally do.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 187Last Friday at 4:22 PM

^^^^

There are 2 COVID compliance officers on GH at all times. If you read the Union/CDC guidelines they do not have to be 6 feet apart. They are allowed to tape scenes where they touch as long as it's done quickly & they put masks on once they finish. Soaps are 1 take so being quick isn't an issue.

If GH was breaking any guideline the COVID officer would contact the appropriate person & the actor/crew would contact their union rep. B&B is impossible to watch with their awkward blocking & kissing of blow up dolls.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 188Last Friday at 4:23 PM

Ava's party next Friday is rumored to be when the Nina/Nelle reveal takes place.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 189Last Friday at 4:25 PM

B&B was the very first show to go back. The episodes we're seeing were some of the very first filmed. The social distancing is some scenes is awkward and some actors seem to feel nervous about doing some scenes. And yes, the kissing scenes are very awkward. And there are scenes where the characters clearly would give each other a hug upon seeing one another, but they don't and that's glaringly obvious.

GH is benefiting from going back almost a month after B&B did. They're learning from B&B's mistakes, seeing ways to make the show flow a bit better with these COVID guidelines. Plus the actors seem more comfortable in doing scenes together.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 190Last Friday at 4:40 PM

So, you're saying that each episode is comprised of some scenes that were produced pre-covid and others that were made after? Interesting.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 191Last Friday at 5:18 PM

r191

I think so but that should run out soon

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 192Last Friday at 5:21 PM

R192

What we are seeing on GH now was taped after they returned from hiatus. GH sat on 2 episodes that were taped pre-COVID and they aired Monday & Tuesday.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 193Last Friday at 6:04 PM

That's quick turn around, cast, crew and production must be working very long hours.

Are they doing their own hair and makeup?

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 194Last Friday at 6:07 PM

Not one character even bothers to say OMG, we should really call Monica and let her know her son is in the Hospital that she runs, in very serious condition.

Everybody in town knows. Peter even knew and wanted Lulu to write a story! “Oh, I’m too close to this to report on it.” What? So stupid.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 196Last Friday at 8:08 PM

Peter knew because he was there when the call came through. They called everyone else, Sam, Carly, Sonny, etc. but no one called Monica. It was especially stupid considering Sam and Jason aren't currently married. Therefore, before Carly proved she had his power of attorney, his next-of-kin responsible for giving permission to operate would have been Monica not Sam.

by Elm St. Market, shelves stripped bare of Charmin and Lysolreply 201Last Saturday at 5:13 AM

Not everything that aired on Tuesday's episode was taped back in March before the shutdown. Any of the scenes with Lindsey Hartley was obviously filmed in the past few weeks.
