    GH: December 2018 Discussion Thread

    Right? I remember the three of them shared a scene or two back around the time the Charles Street story was going on (I'm still bitter that canvas-wide story that had potential ended up going nowhere) and Kiki and TJ later had a nice scene in the hospital about her unjustly taking his spot in the medical program but that...was it. I did see nuTJ in the preview for her funeral though so I hope he and Molly are there. Still weird all around. I know Tequan's very limited availability was part of the reason they didn't do much with TJ and Molly as a couple the last few years, and I can't blame them for trying to hold on to Tequan as long as they could, but it really hurt the teen scene. Tequan doing 10 episodes a year the last few years resulted in Molly barely getting any screen time (plus the fact that they more or less made her redundant with the return of Kristina and also couldn't do as much with her after they started acting like Ric didn't exist) and resulted in TJ's handful of scenes being mosty with Curtis and Jordan. There just simply wasn't a good way to do a Molly, TJ and Kiki friendship any justice in 10 episodes over the course of a year. I'm glad we finally got to see Michael and Kristina's reactions to Kiki's death, among others. The initial reactions and pacing were such sh!t though and truly unforgiveable. Also, I distinctly remember Kristina ran into Kiki in the park maybe earlier this year and they acted like they were friends still in touch in #OffscreenGH but none of that came across in Kristina's reaction. She was just her brother's ex-girlfriend (not even sure which brother she was referring to LOL).

    No he basically just sucks Sonny's d**k like before. He's been here over a year and still isn't back with Sam. I think Kelly Monaco might have a personal issue with him and that's why their reunion has been delayed for so long. That or she simply preferred her character with Drew and to work with Billy and tried to fight for that for a long time. Or a combination of those factors, haha.

    No she's not well-received. I'm pretty sure at least 80% of the fans dislike or even hate her. Nina has never served a purpose and she's been on the show for 4.5 years. If people like her, it's because they like Michelle Stafford from her time on Y&R. That's about it. She had some nice scenes with Liz a few weeks ago where we got a bit of perspective about why chose her career path and how hard it is for her when patients don't make it. Naturally, this was all about Oscar, but it was nice. But yes, she has appeared in 7 episodes, about one a month on average. She doesn't really serve a purpose outside of trans visibility, which I respect in its own right, but GH should be less obvious about their political agenda and weave her into more stories if they want us to consider her an actual cast member. I agree that she's nothing special in the acting department but she's gotten better and is at least trying, which I can't say for all of the cast members, especially the veteran ones.

    Matt Cohen actually showed up for work in the scenes with Maurice Benard! He still doesn't hold a candle to Maura West or Jon Lindstrom though, not that he stood a chance.

    GENERAL HOSPITAL: November 2018 Episode Count

    It probably hasn't! A brief rundown of his episode totals since he returned in 2013: 2013: 20 2014: 15 2015: 2 (temp. recast also appeared in 1 episode as Kevin) 2016: 39 2017: 27 That's a total of 103 over the course of five years and now he'll be in 68+ in one year! Crazy stuff.

    GENERAL HOSPITAL: November 2018 Episode Count

    I agree with that wholeheartedly, but I do have to give them some props to make sure there is more visibility and exposure for the characters. I hope they can recast Jordan but I appreciate their attempt at investing in some substantial airtime for them. I said this in the GH November thread but this may be the first time two African American cast members have led the episode counts on GH in the entire show's history. Hell ,maybe on any soap.

    I didn't mind Kiki, especially when she was with Dillon. I also won't miss her much, though I'll miss Hayley Erin, as she's improved so much. But even I have to admit, they're totally butchered the execution of her death fallout. They're really gonna have every character outside of Ava and Griffin be completely nonplussed by her horrific murder? It's not like she died in an accident. They gave Franco and Elizabeth weak non-reactions (and Roger Howarth really butchered the tone of his IMO) and the rest of the cast is all *shrugs* "Oh well?" Michael finds out about her death off-screen? What is the point of a death of a beautiful, young main character if they aren't going to play the emotional beats and fallout? I can't tell if it's a fail in the writing, if the actors are such sh*t they're missing all the beats in the scripts, or a combination of both. Terrible stuff!

    Briana Nicole Henry led the episode counts this month and Donnell Turner was behind her by one episode. Is this the first time in GH history that two African American cast members have led the episode counts? I can't think of other cast members in years past who would have. I'm happy the day has finally come but I wish, like many have said, that the writing was there for Curtis and Jordan for me to be more invested.

    To be honest, I think it's a testament to how brilliant Maura is that anyone cares about Ava at all. Even though I detested her recent actions against Kiki and felt they weren't mother-ly in the slightest, I couldn't help but feel devastated for her after her performance. That's what a great actor does - makes you feel every possible conflicting emotion for their character and constantly keep you on the edge of your seat to see what they're going to do next, and Maura has all of that in spades.

    I've known this all along since Griffin debuted but today and yesterday's episodes are a painful confirmation of how limited Matt Cohen's acting skills are. He was terrible! Fake crying with no tears and the obnoxious confused face he always makes. Maura West, on the other hand, continues to prove there's nothing she can't do. She is always dangerously close to being over the top, and yet, makes every breath and word she utters feel realistic. I couldn't take my eyes off of her. Her scene today over Kiki's body bag was absolutely gut-wrenching and awfully painful to watch.

    It's on ABC.com https://abc.go.com/shows/general-hospital/episode-guide/2000-11/27-thursday-november-27-2000 It made me really sad to see Bobbie as the host of Thanksgiving, in the center with characters surrounding her the way it should be, but now Sonny and Carly are at the center and Bobbie's been reduced to their side prop.

    Days: November 2018 Discussion Thread ⌛🦃🎩 ❄ ⛄

    Doing some binge watching to catch up. Everything with Marlena, Hattie and the Halloween episode were fantastic. Mimi and Bonnie's return was halfway fun. The show in general feels light and fun in places, which is such a nice change from GH. Some of my negative thoughts: Why is T-Boz still around? Was she really that popular? Am I the only one who doesn't think she's a very strong actress and is relying on her sass to cover the holes in her acting? Did Valerie disappear as a result of Sheila still being a thing? Vanessa A. Williams has a certain charm that will be missed. I am about to catch heat for this. I can understand why people love #Cin so much, mostly due to desperation of there being no better options and the fact that they're both hot, but I am not overly feeling them. They're both competent actors but to call them some huge supercouple seems...premature... based on the scenes I've seen. Some of their "eye twinkle" stares seem very forced to me. What the f**k is growing on Tripp's face?! I haven't liked any version of adult Abby but I'm so happy Marci Miller is out the door. She is as dull as dishwater. I think I literally fell asleep during scenes with her and Tyler Christopher, who also looks pained to be here. And the worst offender is Billy Flynn. What the f**k happened to him? I remember him being half-decent years ago. He's obviously extremely disengaged from the show and the material. When does he leave? I'm legitimately shocked that Chad and Abby are still leading characters, let alone a leading couple. Gag me! I don't know Linsey Godfrey from a hole in the ground but she is a really poor fit for this cast. I think she's an Emmy winner but I don't like anything about her acting choices or the character of Sarah and desperately want her to go away already. Also, I was very depressed to see the actress who plays Claire is still deathly skinny all these months later. I'm very worried for her health.

    On one hand, I felt the concept was pretty funny and modern. Nancy had the best parts of the episode for sure. But the more I thought about it, the less sense it made. It should've been the Halloween episode. It was campy but not campy enough to be over the top hilarious so it ended up being pretty boring. I couldn't tell if those were supposed to be actual escape rooms with the town villains and serial killers or just done up for Jordan and Curtis' benefit. It also emphasized that the writers have no real sense of who Curtis and Jordan are and that neither of the characters have any meaningful history to speak of, separately or together, so their bachelor/ette parties relied on town villains neither of them ever interacted with. The concept was cute but the execution was just not good.

    Sadly, Antione Grant was on today in a very minor scene as a Metro Court employee.

    Fresh Prince Actress Joins GH

    Especially when Mike and Stella are plenty cute already and they easily could've "gone there" with them. Janet and Vernee played sister on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air right?
