An Interesting Alternative: GH

If you follow my blog regularly, or have followed it in the past, you know I'm not much on couple shipping, as people are calling it these days. I don't get caught up in the drama of the fan wars and I don't dare take sides. I've had something on my mind for a while now though, and I can't stay silent any longer. It's about the sad state of GH's pairings. 






Love triangles are a soap staple, but I cannot for the life of me understand why the writers of this particular show think a triangle between Britt, Patrick, and Sabrina is at all interesting, much less something that needs to be played out front and center. If there were anything remotely complex about Britt and Sabrina, that would be one thing. It would also help if everyone didn't know Robin was alive, because really why would we root for anyone other than Patrick's wife and Emma's mother? I will say this though, I was happy to see Sabrina finally put Britt in her place today. Sure she'll probably be put on bed pan duty for life, but it was nice to see one of GH's new characters show a little spark, something that has eluded them in almost every scene. 




Still, that's not enough to make this saga interesting. It's a back-burner storyline at best. I do have an interesting alternative though, if GH wants to pursue a story involving a love triangle. I think GH should do a triangle that involves Liz, AJ, and Carly. These characters have an intense history with one another and we have seen the chemistry AJ has with both women. 






I think this would be really exciting to watch; and let's face it, Rebecca Herbst desperately needs a storyline. And no, writers, putting her in a scene with the Giambetti brothers and her co-workers doesn't count! She essentially had the job of an extra yesterday. I know some people thought those scenes were great, but I found them to be incredibly mundane and a complete waste of time. I would much rather the writers invest time in developing interesting stories...and characters, than to subject us to these random stunts.

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.

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.
