Supra Im just glad GW is bringing him back to fix some of this..I dont think its quite as bad as the sam character assassination but its up there. Kelly wanted the same outs as the other leads had in their contracts and tptb didnt want to give them. She fought for them and won but they punished her for asking with the writing. Im not sure how or why guza was pissed off at Ingo, but I have to imagine given the writing he was.
Liz used to be in the mob s/l without any problems then suddenly "danger, danger, danger" was thrown at the fans every time she and Jason said "boo" to each other. What a load of horse poop. Anyway, Liz needs a hot new man with some laughter, love and fun and no more freaking WTD s/l!
Well, if TPTB told all of the actors no on various pairing if there was no chemistry or s/l then I could deal with that. GV and RH should have been given new pairings instead of constantly going back to LnL2 and that Niz s/l was just gross..IMO
liason4real - But being in the mob is dangerous and that is something we can't ignore. Look at how Sonny, Jason and Carly broke their neck off to try and protect Michael and look at him. I don't want that for Liz with guards for her and Lucky's kids, she can find love with a doctor or business man anyone but a mobbie at this point. And if Johnny and Liz were dating and he said he could protect her, he would be lying b/c anyone a mob member loves is fair game.
I also read about your discussion about JJ supposedly not wanting L&L2. When TC came back to play Nikolas Guza gave him anything he wanted s/l wise until he was bored with the character of Nikolas. It's playing favorites and it isn't fair but we don't know 100% for sure if JJ didn't want L&L2, but we do know from his mouth that he does love working with BH, TC & TG.
EV...Yep, I read that JJ likes working with RH, TC & TG. Anyway, I hated that Liz was no longer allowed in the mob s/l.
I also hate that they've written the Marine Shawn the way they have. It's insulting. The same applies to OLTL for their treatment of Navy Seal Brody. Apparently you can only be a war HERO on AMC.
Faison and SupraMom-totally agree with your views on Shawn. I hope they keep him around and Garin Wolf can write some good material for him.
liason4real - Yeah we all get frustrated at one point with the writing.
What does everyone think of TB coming back as Kate? I love TB and her chemistry with MB. My only concern is her truly pulling off Kate in regards to high fashion and the arrogant air she needs to have about her. We know she has the bitch part down. LOL
I can honestly say I liked Tamara Braun when she was a part of GH as Carly. She seemed to have a "sweetness" that I didn't see in Sarah Joy Browns' characterization-not a criticism-it was just a different take from what I'd gotten used to.
As for her coming on as Kate-I adored Megan Ward in the role. She had,(for my taste), a beautiful blend of business toughness and a surprising vulnerability. I think Tamara will have to "find" her way into the part. I'm totally willing to give her time to work her way in-I just pray the writing doesn't mess up what is, in my opinion, a much needed piece of the GH canvas. Kate's been in the storage cabinet too long.
Swan--Cosign your post. I agree with everything you said. No disrespect to LW, but TB's portrayal of Carly appealed to me in a different way. I can't wait to see her back on GH.
Thanks, Tealita! I enjoy reading your posts here on the DC website.
Oh my gosh. I just read Ravenbeauty's dish and it looks like Ted King (Alcazar), as well as Ric will return. I love me some Ric Lansing and I have been waiting on this news for a while. Per Ravenbeauty; Look for Ric to return when Alexis needs his help the most.
There were also a couple of other spoilers, but right now I am just focused on this.
Jasam--OMG, is right! I saw the same updates. I wonder if Ric will have anything to do with finding Morgan and Molly. Maybe it has something to do with Sam. I dunno, but what ever it is, it has to be good. I love RH. He's a great actor, and damn good-looking. There's also a twitter rumor out there about a JMB recast, and Wubs has MB and AG out in the fall. GH is on fire right now, and I'm loving every minute or it.
Yes, I am excited as well for the prospects of old favorites coming back. But no. Is it seriously possible that MB is out in the fall? I wonder if this is his choice? If not, I don't think this will bode well for GH fans. MB has a HUGE following, and I for one am a big fan. GH is not GH without Sonny. TG, I can understand a bit as he is nearing the time to retire. So, JMB really wants out. Well apparently they are punishing her in the process with this awful bordella storyline. I just saw on GH Happenings there was a casting call sent out for a female contract role. Why do I have a feeling that this is a recast attempt? Hopefully I am wrong. The women is said to be in her 30's and a bit eccentric, striking and beautiful, earthy but ethereal. She is an enigma: capable of moments of genuine tenderness, and instant rages.
Also, if MB is out, will there still be a need for a Kate recast? I keep hearing that it is still TB. I would think they would lean more towards her for a possible Sonny/Kate pairing since they had good chemistry before when she played Carly.
Just so many changes. It is a bit exciting and scary at the same time because you don't want your favorites to leave.
Since quite a few of the characters are going back to Bensonhurst this summer, once Brenda leaves, how great would it be to have Louis back? It would be hard to get Ned since he is on Days of Our Lives. But nothing screams Bensonhurst like crazy, long finger nail wearing Louis!
MY Sonny love started to die when he gave AJ the meathook treatment, but I still liked his romantic pairings until the end of Skate. Sonny was really cruel to Claudia, and I get annoyed by him hanging onto Carly, in his own way. But I FLOVED his chemistry with TB. Yeah, Wubs does have MB out. Even though I don't love the character RIGHT NOW, MB is a fabulous actor, and I could easily love him again with a little retooling. Various Twitter conversations had him as wanting to stay until the end. Any and all Qs they bring back are fine with me. The only one I've heard from more than one source that sounds believable is Dillon. I think it would be fun for he and Michael to mix it up at ELQ, and I wonder how it would effect Lulu, if at all. My ultimate comeback would still be AJ, but that sounds like a pipe dream. I also want to know who Sam's father is.
I am still a bit thrown that the Kate recast did not go to TB. I don't even know what to make of that. It seems GH has another casting call for a doctor in his 30's, and a 19 year old only daughter of a mob boss. If they recast Lexi (Kristina), I will be pissed. I am on the Ethina train, and the only way the couple works for me is Lexi and Nathan. As I have said before, I am pretty new to watching GH. Is it possible the role is for Skye and Alcazar's daughter? I know they are both coming back to the show. I don't know when she was born, so that may be too far fetched.
Hopefully we can still resume this board. I know there used to be spoilers posted on the GH tab a long while ago. Not sure why there has not been a thread in a long time.
Went on the website for RavenBeauty where she posted a GH audition script involving Lulu and a Dr./Physciatrist character. Maybe some conflict for Lulu and Dante-I love them together but they need to be challenged.
GH spoilers are a bit of a mess right now. I love Ravenbeauty, but for the most comprehensive breakdowns, I personally like GH Happenings. The spoilers were updated again, and according to Shirley, rumors point to The Woman In White as being part of a Spencer-Cassadine-Davis story. Sounds very intriguing****As far as Ewen Keenan, MD goes, I like him for Liz, already.****I can't tell if Gina Soleita (the name GH Shirley has for the 19 yo mob daughter from Ny) is a recast for Kristina or not; but I hope not. I love Lexi & Ethina****So far it looks like 3 cars will be involved in a big crash. Two of the most often pairs are: Sonny/Olivia and Jason and Carly. People on twitter are speculating about any number of combinations of characters involved in this crash, including Lucky and Matt (he comes to Lucky's rescue when he's injured during the upcomming drug story...???). Fans are speculating that Jason will be in a coma, and they are wondering if he goes back to his Q personality. If there was anything confirmed about that one on any quality spoiler sites, then I missed it. Maybe he sees Alan? Anyway, the Jasam wedding is scheduled for 9/23/11, so he can't lose his memory completely.****Overall, I think that there is a lot of wishful thinking on Twitter due to the changes planned by GW. http://www.generalhospitalhappenings.com/gh-spoilers.php
Thanks Tealita for the link. I've gone on that site but can't seem to get that far in-it's the "not a computer geek" syndrome that I'm afflicted with...
I have started a new forum listed as GH- Spoilers. I know that JAQ had begun this forum a long while ago, so not much editing could be done. I have began posting spoilers in that thread. Hope to see you guys over there.
