Dateline Port Charles: Resurrections

Recently the show has seen the resurrection of multiple people the other characters thought dead. Sonny is back, busting in the bedroom as his wife and best friend was about to have their honeymoon. Victor Cassadine is back, Valentine is his son. I kinda suspect Britt might be as well. Drew Cain is not dead, he just has a new ripped body. And, of course Peter has more lives than a satanic cat.

Sorry, I meant to say I think Britt will turn out to be Victor's daughter and Valentine's brother. Lisel said she wishes she could wave a wand and remove Faison from Britt's mind. This might just do it. It will mean she slept with and married her cousin, but they wouldn't be too closely related as Nic would be Britt's uncle's grandson. And the Cassadines are an old royal/noble family so it wouldn't be the first time family slept with family in that line.

Cameron certainly has been working out in the decade since AMC left the air.

He had a good body on AMC, but no where near as ripped as he does now.

And certainly looks more fit than Billy Miller ever did in the role.

Britt being Faison's daughter makes her more unique and gives her more of a story than just being another Cassadine. Also, since Maxie is raising a couple of Faison's grandchildren, they are going to need family ties as well.

by Anonymousreply 9October 22, 2021 12:17 AM

R9 She would still be connected to Maxie because Nathan would still be her brother, she would still have been raised as Faison's daughter, but this way she would NOT be related to Peter.

Thank you OP! You were so quick starting the new thread. I’m the one who asked for help over on the Henderson thread. Sorry I had to wait until after prime time to thank you probably. I was interested in the new restaurant set. Does this business have a name? I think it looks a lot like a repurposed Tan-O set. The placement of the bar, the entrance, the outdoor space where Lenny died are all the same. But of course, the addition of customers throws everything off. And yes R11 the new courtroom looks nice. Who’s paying for this?

by Anonymousreply 13October 22, 2021 2:21 AM

When they introduced the fancy restaurant set a few months ago, I think they mentioned the name of it as Beradino's. A homage to the actor who played Steve Hardy. The restaurant's logo looks like a signature, so it was likely his signature.

Dateline Port Charles: Papa Was a Rolling Stone

Color me crazy, chatons, but it's beginning to feel like Father's Day in October. All the wayward, long-lost fathers are suddenly coming out of the woodwork. First they pulled the Victor/Valentin rabbit out of a hat, then Curtis got himself a creepy new stalker-father (presumed) skulking around the Chuck, and now even perennially MIA Jeff Webber seems to have crawled out of the jungle and put the Swiss Army knife down long enough to remember he actually spawned a daughter, or two. And to top that off, rumor even has it that Ron Moss just blew through town to stake his paternal claim on that thing in the Corinthos kitchen!

Gravitas is certainly something Marcus Coloma is lacking.

I have a hard time believing he's even the father of an 18 year old, much less any kind of menace or threat to the real villains in town. He looks too young and scrawny to be believable as either a father or a menace.

There's a reason why Nikolas has had very few scenes opposite Valentin. James Patrick Stuart would overpower Marcus Coloma is a matter of seconds. Hell, if Valentin sneezed hard, it would blow NuNik away.

They must have seen dozens of actors for the Nik replacement. How did they arrive at him? But GH has a history of let's say "odd" replacements. Despite how practically iconic Sarah Joy Browne became as the original Carly, they scored pretty well with her replacements, (except once). But none of the Nik and Lucky replacements came close to the originals, and Colonna is one of the weakest ever.

Jax can take a hike. Peter is long past his expiration date. Mr. Sheffield only signed for six months so he could be a casualty after he bonds with Valentin.

Since it's Valentine's Day they'll have to kill off one half of a couple to make it extra sad. I submit Willow for consideration to continue the dick of death tradition.

I really like Mr. Sheffield, so far. I can't wait until he has some scenes with BLQ, since she reminds me very much of Fran Fine; her general look, the nasally New York accent, the dry, snarky comebacks. I could totally see the writers having a little fun with that one. Like, upon meeting his "granddaughter" Bailey for the first time, he acts dismissively toward Brook Lyn and she gets all "Hey, what do you think I am, the nanny?"

I'm all for bringing back the original actors whenever possible.

It's been 40 years since Richard Dean Anderson played Jeff. It would certainly break a record if he came back.

But the bigger question: is RDA camera ready. Photos in recent years have shown RDA obesely fat. In the one linked at r102, he's not as heavy as I have seen him. But he's still rather hefty. Has RDA lost enough weight to appear on camera now? If he comes back looking too fat, that will distract from his return. -- people will be talking more about his weight than his being back playing Jeff Weber.

I agree, James De Paiva would have been perfect in the role. Too bad he was wasted earlier.

Walt Wiley could be good too. Have always liked him. But would it come off as stunt casting since Rebecca Buddig played his daughter on AMC and now again on OLTL?

I was reminded over the weekend that Michelle Stafford originated the role of Nina. It was a weird reminder because Cynthia Watros so completely owns the role of Nina in my mind now, Stafford seems like an ancient, foggy memory.

Found myself trying to picture Stafford playing the Nixon Falls storyline and falling for "Mike." Try as I might, I just couldn't imagine Stafford pulling off that storyline believably. Stafford would have just steamrolled over the nuances that Watros captured so perfectly.

Hard to believe that Watros only started playing the part in June 2019. She has give some stellar performances. Frank was wise when he cast her in the part.

I chuckle every time Ava and Nina have scenes together as best friends.

I keep remembering how Nina held a pregnant Ava hostage, induced labor and then kidnapped the newborn baby (Avery) back in 2014.

Hard to imagine becoming best friends after that, but the writers somehow made both of them to forget the incident.

Stafford's problem was that she was brought on as a fuck you to Y&R. The character of Nina wasn't fleshed out. They had an actress without a character. It took them all this time to figure out who the character was.

R125 Same. Because there was no other reason for the network to suddenly decide no more rapists could be on canvas. And, I still say if Tony Geary came calling that rule would fly out the window.

Compare it to DAYS, they just had Devil possessed Marlana resurrect her grand-daughters rapist from the dead.

Also, Todd is a strange character to draw a line in the sand about. He is the one rapist who was never allowed to dismiss his crime. He was tortured by his actions. All his relationships were shaped by the rape. He was never fully redeemed.

I would have liked RH back as Todd. The problem was everytime Todd had a wedding, a funeral, or the flu, everyone would have said "where is Starr and Jack?".

I think the whole rapist GH thing was that Franco's rape or nonconsensual acts had never really been addressed. The effect of the rapes perpetrated by both OLTL's Todd and GH's Luke has been examined and addressed - the impact on their victims AND on them. But there was definitely with Franco a possibility that fans could come after that story in a MeToo way.

I think MS 's Nina was a cooky, clumsy kind of Phyllis that, while she worked well with the Franco character, it was no different than that iconic character she played over at Y&R. My problem is that MS always has to play this out of the box character instead of a nuanced one, which would've been more effective and which CW does really well. CW already showed the range of playing a spiralling out of control psycho whackjob Annie, so it was a good decision to play a more subdued Nina. I don't know how she would've played the psychotic faking being in a wheelchair then kidnapping pregnant Ava and cutting her baby out, though. That was really OTP

by Anonymousreply 134November 2, 2021 4:05 PM

RH's Todd wore his guilt on his face constantly via the scar. And yes, RH played that guilt in every scene.

TSJ did not have the scar on his face and never really played the guilt about the rape in his scenes. Even in the rapemance scenes with Marty.

RH's Franco never really paid for any of the crimes that James Franco's Franco did. They just wiped that all away with the brain tumor. Of all the characters they could have created for RH, it's stunning Ron chose to resurrect Franco for him.

The writing for Nikolas has been bad because the writers are uninspired by Coloma's portrayal.

When an actor gives a good performance, the writers get ideas about what else they want to see the actor do. Thus, good performances feed good writing. Case in point, Nicholas Chavez is inspiring the writers because they continually give Spencer challenging scenes.

Whereas lackluster performances inspire lackluster writing. Case in point, Marcus Coloma as Nikolas.

The bigger question remains, why has Frank allowed Coloma to continue in the role for TWO FULL YEARS now.

I was so stoked when they cast Robin Riker as Naomi Dreyfus (Liz's half-sister's mom) and they started to explore the history with Jeff Webber after he left Port Charles. So much story to tell. But what do we get instead? Crap as usual. This got morphed into some ridiculous story about a killer virus and that annoying doctor drug addict who used Victorian-era hypodermics. This show has been awful since HW Claire Labine left.

[quote] Has Larger Webber Chamberlain been away at the fat farm?

Many years ago, when Francis really got huge, the board at IMDB called her Larda. Cruel, but... bwaaaahaaaaahaaaa

She hasn't been her youthful, slender self in decades. That vicious queen who runs the show must have had it in for her because I remember several scenes in a short while where they had Laura devouring a candy bar in the scene. Oh dear. She was a regular at the GH vending machine in the main lobby.

By the way, I think her whole name would be Laura Williams Vining Webber Baldwin Spencer Cassadine Spencer Baldwin Spencer Collins. The woman is a walking law firm.

GH does have some hefty gals on the show these days. Gloria Monty and Wendy Riche would have never let that fly. I give them a pass because one gained weight to stay off drugs, the other is baby weight, and the other is post menopause weight. What can you do? Even Laura Wright looks thick.

There seems to be a double standard -- the men have to stay slim (and the young men have to remain muscular), while the women can be any weight. I think the producers are under pressure not to fat-shame their actresses.

by Anonymousreply 240November 5, 2021 8:06 PM

I imagine they killed off Alan because the EP at the time:

1. Hated veteran actors because of the cost and their age

2. Hated the Quartermaines and did all she could to dismantle them. Christ, she even made a drug-dealing, teen-raping mobster their moral better.

I don't think Stuart Damon's weight was an issue, although I will say that Brad Maule (Tony Jones) was also sidelined and he had gotten hefty as well.

Kimberly McCullough used to get fat-shamed all the time when she was on. Personally, I hated that snobby, supercilious prisspot Robin so I was glad to see her written off when she quit.

It is kind of funny to see that nearly all the slim, slender, in-shape men on GH seem to have a thing for chubby women. Maxie, Robin, Laura -- none of them ever had a problem finding a stud to bang them.

Many years ago (30?) I met Wally Kurth and Rena Sofer briefly in NYC. They were lovely people, by the way, and both were even more attractive in person than on TV. BUT... it was scary how skinny they both were. Keep in mind when you see people on TV who look normal weight, they are likely 10-20 lbs under. And God help anyone who looks underweight on TV. Chloe Lanier must be a walking skeleton. Also, people who look chubby on TV (Storms, Francis) are probably closer to normal everyday people in real life. I can't imagine the struggle and determination it must take to remain 10-20 lbs underweight for years and decades while appearing on TV. No surprise many actors "get fat" when they leave a show or retire.

BTW searching for the clip in R247 led me down a rabbit hole of classic GH clips. I'm watching Steve Hardy's death. I forgot Carly was already on then and the selfish cunt was like why couldn't he wait a day to die because it overshadowed her being admitted to the GH nursing program. Also, Rachel Ames very much was still capable. I think GH made a huge mistake in not using her more during her later years on the show.

This is what I don't understand about Esme. She is clearly zeroing in on Joss, but it's clear that Trina is the one she should have problems with which leads me to believe that Esme doesn't give two fucks about Spencer and he's just a penis, a bank account, and a means to and end for some reason or other.

She dislikes Joss, which is mystery #2, behind mystery #1 which is her connection to Ryan. I think she wants Joss and Cam to attempt to fuck, but will somehow interrupt it leaving Cam frustrated and his balls even bluer and blaming Joss.

With Trina on recurring now, I wonder if that is the reason she's been downplayed in the story or is there something else. Some many questions.

R273 Why did they do that? It was the perfect retread of a classic storyline. I love it when they revisit classic storylines. Plus, ever since Carly came to PC and broke up Bobbie and Tony, who was one of my favorite married couples, I've been waiting for her to get repaid.

As a kid I had three couples on GH that I thought were just perfect, in their own way, Bobbie and Tony, Monica and Alan, and Sean and Tiffany. With Lucy, I liked her with Kevin but I also loved her and Scotty, so I didn't have a preference.

And, of course, I loved Steve and Audrey and Edward and Lila, but I thought of them more as combined units, nothing would ever really separate them even death.

[quote] Nelle was originally Carly's kid.

This would have made far more sense and been a much better story. Nelle's reason for revenge never really did make sense... a half-sister she didn't know came one time for a visit to yell at her asshole dad? WTF?

I have no idea why they changed everything around. The groundwork was there... it was already established that teenaged Carly had an affair with the dad of her best friend, Charlotte. The child could have been taken from her (DCF, not put up for adoption) which is what drive Carly over the edge with her first plan against Bobbie who simply "abandoned" her to a Jacksonville orphanage.

This is kind of the problem I have with this show. So many great opportunities and yet 90% of the time they pick weirdest least-satisfying, least dramatic, least plausible route to take a story. I hope the writers are haunted by the ghost of Douglas Marland.
