  1. I always loved Stefan- both with Laura and without. It was a huge mistake to lose him I think. Katherine was another story. Like Vee said, I don’t think she ever worked past the original story with Scott and Lucy. She was amusing with the Quartermaines and when she was in the middle of the Ned and Lois, but it was a mistake I think to move her away from that side of the canvas. I think worked best as a foil for the Quartermaines or when she would aggravate Lucy, Felicia, Mac, and characters like that. If they hadn’t been so insistent on her and Stefan, I think they maybe could have used her on Port Charles, especially in the early years. She would have been good there as a thorn in Lucy’s side while trying to get back in Scott’s good graces but alas. It was completely insulting though that Frank Valentini thought he could have Stefan on recurring and just use him once a month. While that works for people like Scott and Bobbie, I don’t think that you can use Stefan like that. With the Hardy discussion, GH more than any other show has so many good characters just languishing offscreen. They just see so many of these very viable characters as either radioactive, only allowed onscreen when someone dies, or just best offscreen. They could make people like Sarah, Tommy, Dillon, Tom, etc work but they chose not to. It’s completely baffling. Instead we get Willow, Dev, and an invented character for Roger Howarth. Also, I have started a GH episode vault. I’ll still post the 80s to 2000s episodes on YouTube, but I’m also going to also upload them to this vault, along with pre-80s stuff I don’t really feel like sharing on YouTube. I have all the full years of GH from the mid-80s to mid-2000s and they’ll all go here and to YouTube. The vault will also have the other ABC soaps, AW, Passions, and the UK and Australian soaps. If anybody wants to contribute, just let me know. I’ll post the link to the vault today or tomorrow Hands down one of GH's worst stories. I mean really with all that.
  2. I have about 30 episodes from between around 1975 to 1977. All in pretty bad condition so I'm not sure they're really worth posting without trying to really clean them up. The ones pre-Quartermaine and Spencer families are pretty bad. It does seem like the show was just trying anything to get a character off the ground. It's jarring to see Lesley, Jessie Steve, and Audrey and a cast of long forgotten characters lol. You can definitely see why they ran with people like Laura, Alan, Monica, Bobbie, Luke and Tracy once they realised they had something there.
  3. She didn't want to work without a vaccine apparently. Anyway, basically all the vets are involved in this except for like two. No idea why they didn't list everybody in the article. I think it'll be a nice tribute.
  4. The issue has always been that he never should have been Franco in the first place. I don't care what kind of chemistry he had with people. It was absurd from day one, and it got even worse when they tried to hand wave away everything he had done. I'll admit he was great with Becky chemistry wise but they never should have gone there. There were literally 7 or 8 different characters they could have had Roger play, but they insisted on him playing. Even all these years later, they did the right thing by finally getting rid of him. Roger should have just been Tom Hardy or some new Quartermaine from the jump. As for Todd, Vee is right. It's impossible to have a character like that on the show right now and as a leading man. It was problematic back then too. However, at the end of the day, Todd raped Marty (and was going to rape her again), assaulted Luna, punched Tea, tormented and stalked Nora, and did all kinds of heinous stuff to Blair. It's all on YouTube. You just can't have someone with that kind of history as a leading mean now. It would never fly. And no, no one is pleased with the parade of Michael Easton characters either.
  5. Perhaps in the US, but I just on the telly that William and Kate have a 75% approval rating. Even among my friends who dislike the royals (both in Australia and South Africa), William and Kate are liked. This is definitely a case where the internet gives off a different impression than real life tbh. Yes, this. In the UK, this will really only have an impact on younger generations. Everyone else already made their mind up a long time ago on how they felt.
  6. Yes, one of the main takeaways I'm seeing here in Australia is that heaps and heaps of people think the whole interview is rude. I'm not taking a side, but its definitely playing one way in the US and differently in other parts of the world. I have a lot of friends who don’t normally care about the royals but are saying they think Meghan and Harry are being "impolite". Nobody cares about Charles or Camilla really, but William and Kate are still very popular. There is definitely some anti-American feelings seeping into this as well.
  7. It is in a lot of ways. As I guess one of the few (maybe the only one?) posting here who technically lives under the monarchy, all I'm going to add to this conversation is that a lot people here and in our press seem to be on the royals' side this time. I'm surprised tbh with the support I'm seeing, not so much from the more traditional side, but also from people who normally don’t care for the monarchy. I'd say its about half and half and that surprises me. I think this will ultimately only end up being damaging in the US. I think a lot people in the rest of the world will see it as being rude or impolite, especially towards the Queen and the family (and that's even people that maybe are on Meghan and Harry's side).
  8. These were the first two I thought of when it came to being overdramatic lol. I feel like both the actresses and the show knew when to tone down the theatrics however and it was played for laughs. Lucy got completely overdramatic in the vampire years of Port Charles though. Like what are either of them going for here lol. Awful. Between him turning into the vampire and the loud af breathing and her rubbing his head while yelling/comforting him, it's too [!@#$%^&*] much. I can't find the scene now, but when Marty shoved Natalie off the roof on OLTL. Completely absurd and OTT. That Brenda clip....whew LOL.
  9. So sad. I loved him and Tiffany on GH as a kid. Neither of these were great, but sadly, a lot of that was probably due to the fact that everyone that really knew Lee and Gail are marginilised or gone from the show. There just wasn't a lot to work with (that doesn't excuse how half arsed it was though with flashbacks and story beats). At least this time, they have Anna, Monica, Robert, Laura, and Mac as fairly active characters. Felicia and Bobbie are around. There's also Tracy, Lucy, Scott, and Kevin. There's actually enough people around to shore up a decent tribute episode or two if they want to.
  10. AMC- Trevor, Natalie, Edmund. Trevor in the freezer is still especially egregious to me. What was the purpose of that? AW- Frankie, Ryan. Both go without saying However GH totally owns this topic. AJ, Alan, Georgie, Emily, Tony, and I'd even throw people like Stefan and Rick in there too. Emily and Georgie were shortsighted. AJ was just a waste both times. Alan was completely cruel and unnecessary. I get why they killed Tony but it's sad it ever came to that point. Killing off Stefan and Rick both were ridiculous stories that I could have done without, especially since both characters could have been used over the years..
  11. I've started a vault for GH episodes and I'll do the other ABC soaps, Another World, and some Australia/UK/South Africa soaps too. You'll be able to stream and download the episodes, just like the Y&R one. I'll post the link to the vault once I have some actual stuff in.

     

    I'll still post the US soap episodes on youtube too for as long as that lasts.

  12. It wasn't from ABC, at least for me. It was because some episode had three Chris Isaak songs playing in the background and I got it with a music copyright thing. I never had an issue with episodes. I'm just going to start another channel and I'll look into the archive.org thing but it might be US only.
