GH: June 2019 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

It irks me that they created Willow when they had ample opportunity to use Carly Schroeder as Serena in the same kind of role (schoolteacher/ex-cultist).

There are way too many worthless newbies with no real ties.  This team even invented ties  with Kim and Oscar and then killed him off.

 

I do have to add that all the comments about a public employee’s insurance covering all their medical expenses for an injury or illness not related to their job are wrong.  You can have insurance and still have major medical bills.  Especially public employees, depending on their location.

 

The real issue is didn’t Drew hit her?  I know it was an accident, but his insurance or better yet, a lawsuit against the Quartermaines should cover her bills.  For that matter, why aren’t they paying anyway?

Drew offered to pay the outstanding Balance. Jordan & Curtis said No. Jordan said since Drew Owns a media Company, him paying her bills could be seen as a bribe

No there’s not room for both. This cast is bloated as hell. GH needs to trim the cast and stop recasting pointless characters. They should also swap out characters like Willow and Finn for historical GH characters like Lila Rae and Steven Lars. Par down the cast and use actual GH characters instead of random newbies.

 

I've been preaching this kind of thing for years. We need new blood but it always frustrates me when they cast characters who could very easily be other, legacy characters with actual ties. Not forced pets. It is indeed frustrating. It's why so many of us keep whining about Sarah Webber or Sarah Horton on DAYS (who they FINALLY cast, when they should have had Serena be Sarah ... but I digress ...).

 

Hayden could have still been a retcon but not as an "instead of Sarah lets make Hayden Liz's sister!" type of thing as it seems to be.

 

Why are we stuck with random hot cop every few years when Lucky should be on the show? Frank recasts his pets but not Dante (what was the story with Dominic leaving? Did Frank lowball him and drive him off? They showed no interest in writing for him, personally ... once the Valerie/Lulu/Dante thing was a dud on arrival, they lost any interest in Lulu and Dante)

Nina offered to pay as well but proud Curtis turned him down. Hopefully Jordan will get an infection as karma for their stupidity.

I think thats a little too far lol

I agree we use characters that have history but at the same time they do also need new characters but not at this pace

No, they also need characters that don't suck. 90% of these characters suck, John. We all know you liked Oscar, the worst teen this show has ever featured, but it's the truth. And the bills story is stupid and racist and should not exist.

They had no interest in Dante ever since Ron and Frank took over. Dominic finally quit out of boredom and exhaustion. A total waste.

 

Chase has no reason to be here either, cute or not. But I also can't necessarily fault them for not recasting Lucky again. Once you somehow get Jonathan Jackson back (and then, amazingly, lose him again, thanks to Guza/Frons) I think that's it. He is Lucky and he destroyed the recasts. It would take someone incredibly good for me to even begin to accept it now. I think Lucky should have more of a recurring presence, but Jonathan won't do that.

He was the worst young actor this show has featured, ever. It doesn't matter who he was related to by blood.

Spoiler

Supposedly Nina will start a fundraising drive to pay Jordan's medical bills

 

Anna needs to be saved. Drop Finn. Keep her & Robert Exes & bring David Hayward in from AMC. Finola & Vincent were great together. 

If I were Dom I wouldnt come back, given his crappy return & lame ass exit

I agree on David and Anna. And definitely agree on dropping Finn. Meh. Not my most hated of Frank's pets and not at the top to dump, but he's on the list ... (and besides the obvious: Frank wanted his pets on the show, it's so dumb they create Finn, obviously FOR Easton, instead of bringing back Steven Lars or Tom, both of whom could have had the same/similar story)

 

I also agree on Dominic. I guess they could still recast down the road.

Lousy Garren Stitt's  Oscar needs to stop appearing. His stupid grins seriously need to go.

 

When you look back at the 80s, TPTB wisely brought in fresh blood with connections to the major families. Case in point...

1980   Tracy Quartermaine exits.....Alexandria Q arrives in 1981...dies..1982 Eric, Edward's illegitimate son starts being mentioned   Crane Tolliver Lila's first husband comes totown.... .1983 enter Celia Q and Eric (Jimmy Lee). 1984 ...Lorena Sharpe....etc..

 

The Quartermaines were still relatively new at the time, but they rotated in new characters with connections that viewers cared about. As Drew's story (along with Kim and Oscar) dwindles, another Q should be arriving on the scene to keep the mix flowing.

 

A cast purge is necessary. They had large casts in the 80s, but characters were mostly well written and the stories were balanced.  Tossing out Franko, Julian, Nina, Finn, Wallow, Shiloh.,Harmony, Kim, Drew, Oscar,Valentin, Spinelli and Peter and bringing back a few characters with rich history is only the start of what needs to be done. ValenVarni's  need to pinch pennies yet waste money on overpaid actors like Howarth and Easton is the tip of the reasons they need to go......

Totally agree about rotating characters with ties to the canvas & Baddies of that day would be killed or jailed, not reeeeemed like GH seems to want to do with Shiloh

Easton should have never returned after Mcbain. Same with Howarth & Alderson

Dante is needed now & there are actors that can play the part well.

I like Willow and can't stand Sasha. LOVED CW so far. I do think MS and the actor who plays Curtis had great chemistry, so far not feeling it with him and Watros. I do think Watros and Ingo have chemistry too
