Stuck on You: GH

I guess it must be time for a soap opera makeover. Lulu walked into the hospital on Thursday seeking help after she glued her hand to her head. Having introduced such a random scene can only mean one of two things, either Julie Marie Berman is getting a haircut and the writers wanted to find a way of acknowledging that, or Lulu is about to be involved in a love triangle with Matt and Dante. I mention the love triangle theory because as Lulu was waiting for someone to help pry her hand away from her hair Dante arrived and continued to make flirtatious advances. Resisting, Lulu told him she had plans with Matt who was ultimately the one to come up with a way of getting her hand separated from her hair.

Personally I think the idea of a Matt and Lulu pairing is inspired. I really cannot say that I like the idea of her and Dante. They do not have enough chemistry. Moreover Lulu needs someone who is not involved in Sonny's world for a while. I got tired of all the angst that was Lulu and Johnny. It would be refreshing and a nice change of pace to see her with someone who is the polar opposite of her ex-boyfriends. It is also about time that GH gave Matt a love interest. His mild flirtation with Maxie is clearly going nowhere at the moment and he has been on this show long enough to finally be paired up with someone.

  1. I totally agree about Matt and LuLu - I never would have thought about them as a couple, but I am now thinking it could work. I *do* like Dante though (although I will like it better when he is all out of being Dominic) but am still not sure about their pairing either. It's too soon to tell how they're going to play the romantic pairings, but only showing them randomly every couple of weeks is not enough!! How are we supposed to get invested if we don't see them too much. Sigh.

    Great blog!

  2. Hi Entertamy! Thanks for the post and for the compliment. I will also be relieved once this whole Dante/Dominic thing gets resolved. I think it has played out about as long as it can. I do love the Dante character though so I am hoping he sticks around for a while. And what great casting! He looks just like a younger version of Sonny! And you are right showing potential couples together for a few minutes every so often makes it difficult to root for any of them. That is one reason I can't get behind a Dante/Lulu pairing. I know the writing seems to be heading in that direction, but at this point it just feels too forced.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
