10 February 23rd, 2010 General Hospital’s new opening sequence revealed!

Today in celebration of the series 12,000 episode General Hospital will reveal its brand new opening sequence. It had been since August 2004 that a revised show open has been produced. For years, fans complained that the old sequence showed many “dead” characters and was so outdated. GH’s YouTube Channel gave viewers a sneak peek before today’s airshow, and here it is below. So what do you think of this new opening?  Is it a good revision or a bad one?  Not working for you, or do you love it?  Let us know!

    I’m all for any daytime drama’s opening credits that include the name of the performer who plays the role. OK OLTL & AMC, its time to follow GH’s (& Y&R’s) example and update your opening credits also.

    I love it! Mark, BB also showcases the actors’ names too. AMC and OLTL need to follow suit. DAYS will probably never go that far, that hourglass is the show’s star, lol.

    I’m really disappointed with the new opening and would have gladly accepted 2 more years of the old one for a better one.
    Forget the fact that the order continues to show what GH really cares about since that has been a given since at least the last opening.
    -The editing is weird.
    -Half the cast…I’ll just say their best looks were NOT captured, which is a shame because it’s a good looking cast.
    -There is no continuity…some of the cast has REALLY close up face shots while the rest, for the most part, lucked out with more of a zoomed OUT profile.
    -The CGI backgrounds are a nice attempt, but IMO fail, especially when many of them don’t make any sense at all.
    The whole thing looks like it was just thrown together, and the only real plus is the added name/character name, which might as well have just been added to the old opening.

    I agree Nelson Aspen a serous cheesy disappointment. Can’t believe I waited this long for that lame attempt. Whoopee they added character/actor names and updated pics. Some of the backgrounds make zero sense example Michael and Kristina and Spinelli.

    Sometimes I forget how seriously creatively bankrupt GH has become. Nice job Jill Farren Phelps and Brian Frons you reminded me.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the new opening. I think it really moves too fast because if you didn’t know the actors you have to really read fast to catch their names and the role they play. I do like the scenic views in the backround such as it is. But, they are trying to put too much in a short span of time. I did not see some of the actors that are prominent on the show and wonder how they determine who gets to be in the opening. What about Scott Reeves?……..

    To piggy-backon what Christina said, did anyone notice how loooong the shots of Sonny, Jason, Carly and Sam where, while I could hardly get a look at Kristina and Michael. Oh, and did I miss Morgan? And Yes, where is Scott Reeves?

    Doe, if you want to see an opening that goes by too fast, watch BB tomorrow. They just recently added a bunch of their newer contract players to the opening and it goes by like blinking an eye. It’s almost funny… compared to that one, this is a sedate, leisurely pace.
