Stating the Obvious: GH

Wednesday's General Hospital was like a breath of fresh air to me. Kristina's conversation with Sonny served as a reminder that she is the one true victim in this storyline. It also allowed viewers to see that her attempts to forget what happened to her is clouding her judgement. And it was nice to see that she is still making an effort at keeping Ethan out of trouble because it makes her seem less villainous . As long as GH keeps showing more moments like these I might eventually be able to buy into the fact that she blamed Ethan thinking she could protect him, while appeasing Kiefer in order to protect herself.









Perhaps the portion of this episode that pleased me the most was Carly figuring out that Kiefer is to blame for Kristina's attack. Obviously she will have to prove that now, which will give GH an opportunity to throw her into scenes with Bradley Cole, (hello Guiding Light fans) but it was such a relief to hear someone finally suspect Kiefer. I was beginning to think that no one remembered anything they had seen or heard about him. I think Carly should go to Sonny with her suspicions because she might actually be the only person who can get through to him. One would think he would have learned something from his experiences with Claudia and Dante, but how quickly he forgets.









I was surprised that Lulu brought up Luke's past to Ethan. I had actually forgotten that he didn't know all about the saga that is Luke and Laura, but if Luke is going to factor into a storyline about violence against women, the rape needs to be addressed. And I liked that Lulu recognized it for the violent act that it was.

  1. I have to say that I enjoyed yesterday's episode more than I have been, but there is still a great deal of room for improvement.

    Oh yeah there are definitely more things they could be improving on right now and I hope they do.

  3. Paula,

    When I was watching Friday's show leave it to Soap Opera Digest for blowing the plot by revealing what's in their next issue. With all due respect, it probably wasn't their fault. Geez....it was right before the end of the show when Alexis gets that "Aha!" moment in time.

  4. Hi Peggy!

    I think the GH promos have been revealing too much too. The last one that aired showed Kiefer's lifeless body on the ground. I didn't need to know that he dies. I would have rather been surprised. The level of interest in soaps might actually increase if the viewers were allowed to be surprised every now and then. If you can see everything that happens in a 16 second promo, no wonder soap ratings are so low. Viewers are essentially given a choice - see what happens in just a few seconds or watch 10 episodes for the same outcome.

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!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

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.
