GH: November 2018 Discussion Thread

Also agree with everyone that the kid playing Oscar never should've been given a big lead story on the story. What were they thinking?

 

He's a white twink under 25. That's all Frank Valentini needs to put him on four days a week and pretend he's got Starr and Cole Mark III. He is obsessed with that demo even when the young actors are not capable.

 

I feel bad for Donnell Turner, who came on claiming he wanted to be "the black Luke Spencer." He's talented and incredibly charismatic but no black male is going to get that kind of star exposure on GH.

For real. Like spare me Griffin's heartbreak over this girl who was barely more than his f-ck buddy for 5 minutes. He was banging her mom a few months ago. The Griffin/Kiki pairing was a joke.

 

PREACH!

 

No lies here ... lol

All true.

 

I'm surprised he's on as much as he is (I love him, and I'm glad they use him, but you're correct). And as I predicted, the new Jordan would be on far more (or at least it feels like it).

Tamara should have been Elizabeth's sister Sarah.  Sarah lives in California, so it could have worked and shored up the Webbers.

ITA!

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.

Yeah. Two tokens have rarely felt more omnipresent. The writers don’t really care much about them in spite of their big “wedding” and the Stella drama. They want the pat on the back for diversity while Curtis and Jordan support the (white) characters they actually want us to invest in.

Garren Stitt , Eden McCoy & William Lipton are all 15 yrs old. I like that GH hired actual teen actors to play teens

 

It doesn't matter when none of them are capable of carrying their material. I find the kid playing Cameron okay but I don't watch much and I hear he's not so great. He should not be carrying story.

 

The girl playing Joss was hired as a temp and stayed only because she was white, blonde and cheap. She can't carry massive story and Joss shouldn't. Garren Stitt is beyond awful.

This show has never given two fúcks about either character. It's Brian and Claudia. If they did, Curtis would not have been relegated to Jordan or vice versa. But I've never liked Jordan, though I did like Vinessa Antoine.
