129 July 23rd, 2013 Jack Wagner Relates His Disappointment On General Hospital 50 Comeback As Frisco!

Courtesy/ABC

Jack Wagner who came and went as Frisco Jones in a blink in an eye during General Hospital’s 50th anniversary celebration and storylines, where many long time favorites returned, took to Twitter very late last night/early this morning to voice his displeasure at the way his comeback went down.

The GH 50 return focused on Frisco trying to woo back Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and being reunited with his daughter, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) only to have him venture off and and exit Port Charles … yet again!

Wagner related to his fans:  “Very disappointed in the powers that b @ GH. The ratings momentum around the 50th was blown, BADLY, sorry GH fans we were misled.  The way Frisco was written out was wrong n out of character, I could have f**kin screamed n should have but didn’t want 2 make waves.  Shame on me.  It’s my fault, I should have had some sack n stood up 4 the character n his history but was a total pussy.  I apologize GH n Frisco fans my bad. I also think so much reality TV is bullshit! A lot of the people r wasted most of the time. Sad the networks sell this shit message 2 kids. BTW I checked w God b4 I chose 2 FINALLY speak my truth about a couple things, He said “It’s about time”. TY God 4 having my back!! Sleep well tweets, I know I will…lv”

OK General Hospital fans, what do you think about Jack’s sentiments? Do you agree that Frisco’s return was botched? Do you feel Jack got a raw deal? What do you think about what he voiced via his tweets? Weigh-in!

    When I was growing up, Frisco and Felicia were my favorite supercouple on General Hospital, only to be followed by Sonny and Brenda in the 90′s. I really liked how Frisco was written this time around, his comedic bantering with Mac. I was saddened to see him leave again. I love him and Kristina on-screen together. Brings back good memories from when I was younger.

    I think Jack Wagner spoke the truth that a lot of people are too polite or nervous to voice. GH did not do Frisco judgment. They had the character making a stand for his daughter, only to turn around and leave town when he was romantically rejected. This really makes Frisco look cruel. Disappointing. Who can blame Jack for voicing his disgust?

    I SO agree with Jack, I’m so bitter over the way my all-time favorite couple was treated, I haven’t watched GH since! Frisco should have left on a hopeful note, with a tender scene between him & Felicia, didn’t have to reconcile, but they needed to leave the fans some HOPE! And all the trust he’d built up with Maxie was blown. Felicia shoots him down, so he’s gone. Making Maxie (and US) think Felicia is the only reason he was there. HOW could Carlivati, a self-professed “long-time fan”, do Frisco like that? I do not blame Jack Wagner one bit, he is an actor, he’s playing a part. It’s up to the writer to be true to the characters, and Ron Carlivati failed MISERABLY in regards to Frisco Jones.

    Brava, Jack!

    All F&F fans knew that something about the way the tide turned at the Nurse’s ball did not pass the sniff test. The ending was harsh and didn’t just not redeem Frisco, it doubled down on the gross mischaracterization over the years.

    I, for one, am sick of hearing how much Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini “love” vets when I see their half-assed attempts to placate the old guard. Jack’s return, in particular, was a debacle. It didn’t seem that It was going to be, but they definitely baited and switched. Why bring back a character to have his exit end with him solidifying the against-character (offscreen happenings, all) that were put into place by other regimes?

    As for F&F, I don’t know that any of even the most diehard of us expected a reconciliation, but we expected and deserved respect. No, Ron and his sub scribes made sure to twist the knife there, too. “Man of my heart,” Felicia said in her rejection of Frisco? Yes, by all means, let’s take something elemental and that was a lynchpin of F&F’s story and spin it to be pro-mac. By all means.

    Characters who don’t even know him making jokes at his expense after the public (out of character) proposal? By all means. Have Maxie (who sided with Mac’s puppet show) tell Mac days later that he’s her real dad and always was. Let’s definitely have Frisco count himself out in front of the audience so they can say, “See. This is how he really is.”

    Finally, and perhaps most significantly (though it’s hard to make such distinctions when everything is so foul), Frank and Ron lying about Jack’s schedule being the reason they only had 10 episodes. Jack made it clear in SOD, SID, and just now on Twitter that he wanted to stay and was told by them, no.

    Mac and Felicia had more of substance to do with Jack’s Frisco back on the canvas and now that he’s gone they’re back to being incidental to everything, including the planning for their own farce of a wedding. Is the irony lost on Ron who used Jack to prop this milquetoast pairing that not even he is interested in enough to write for?

    Jack, I’m proud of you!

    Salimah, you and your F&Fer’s need to quit bashing JJY on twitter. I don’t know the man personally, but neither do you. I am starting to notice animosity towards KW also. I don’t know the woman personally, but neither do you. At the same time you and yours lavishly praise Mr. Wagner for fighting his demons saying what a wonderful person he is. Maybe he is a wonderful person. I don’t know him personally, but just remember neither do you.

    Your reply isn’t directed to the actual contents of my comment on this article and it [your reply] carries with it an oddly, but specifically personal tone.

    The first thing I’d offer/suggest is that referring to “me and my F&F’ers” assumes a lot. I have never bashed John J York (JJY is your familiar-sounding shorthand for the actor you’ve confirmed you don’t know, yes?) on twitter or anywhere else. I am not responsible for, nor do I police what anyone else says about him–be they self-described “F&Fers” (we don’t use an apostrophe because it’s plural, not possessive) or not.

    Your condescending admonishment to remember that I don’t know him, Kristina Wagner, or Jack Wagner is not needed. I don’t purport to know any of them. I never have.

    I do have strong opinions about the way Jack’s return as Frisco Jones, a character I do “know,” was handled. I’ve laid out those opinions above. It is irresponsible of you to drag an entire, and general group of people into a highly editorialized accusation. “I am starting to notice animosity towards KW also.” How, praytell, and what is your definition of animosity in this context? That’s a rhetorical question.

    I have plenty of dislike for this iteration of her character and Mr. York’s. Let me say that again. I have plenty of dislike for their *characters,* and it is in the context of their characters that I discussed them in my comments on this article.

  6. Rodd says:

    I disagree and find the timing rather odd. I’m coming at this as a newer fan, that wasn’t watching when he was originally on.
    But to me, the only part about this return that I didn’t like was the abrupt exit. It confused me after he finally took a stand against Britt for Maxie and then left because Felicia declined his marriage proposal. I thought maybe Frisco would turn over a new leaf and be there for his daughter even after he left town, but no…
    If Jack was disappointed in the way his character was written, why didn’t he say so while GH’s ratings were higher? Now that the show seems to be in a slump, his comments appear, to me, to be bitter words from one who’s jumping on the GH bashing wagon. JMHO.

    Sorry, but Jack is wrong about Frisco being written out of character. I loved Frisco and Felicia in the mid 80s, but like it or not Frisco left his wife to pursue his dreams in the WSB. He was presumed dead, Felicia moved on to Colton, Frisco returned with promises to be a good husband this time. He last about a year, maybe two, and was off on another mission leaving Felicia to raise Maxie this time. On his final return to the show in the 90s, Felicia tracked him down to tell him she was pregnant, and he admitted he didn’t want to be a husband and father, he wanted to stay with his life as a WSB agent. Nothing about his return negated his prior behavior at all. He was a craptastic dad and husband. The only one written out of character was Felicia who wasn’t having his nonsense this time.

    I’m sorry Jack wanted to stay longer and wasn’t allowed to but he left the show everytime a better opportunity presented itself in the 80s-90s. So, I’m not particularly interested in his sour grapes at this point. There’s a lot wrong with GH right now. There are many things that need to be changed, but SORRY, Frisco and Jack are at the bottom of the list of what needs to be fixed imo.

    maddiehayes replied

    well Jane, Jack Wagner wanted out of the show, so that’s why Frisco joined the WSB. There was never a man more devoted to his wife than Frisco was to Felicia – until the actor wanted to leave. THEN Frisco joined the WSB, they had to write him out somehow. That’s the problem, they didn’t want to recast Jack Wagner. So they let him come back for short little stays and every time he left the WSB was to blame. It makes me mad, because that is not the Frisco&Felicia I fell in love with. They were uber popular & uber romantic, and many of us would like to see Frisco redeemed, not brought back to be used as a punching bag one more time.

    No matter where the character and actor are on this list you speak of, when you bring a beloved vet back in order to get his/her fans to watch the show, it’s generally a good idea to write them well… it’s not like he hasn’t returned and is asking for fixing, he DID return and they made things worse. Even if they weren’t going to keep him on, they could have been kinder to the character, and the FANS.

Like I said in the post below they are not at OLTL anymore please move on RC &FV!

    He left in 1995 for the final time, because the fans were sick of his short stints and not wanting to stay longer. Felicia needed to move on. Mac was there and raised Georgie and Maxie. Even Felicia never stayed around. Both were lousy parents. Mac did a great job overall. Surprised that Georgie and Maxie never changed there last name to Scorpio. Frisco came back and insisted he changed, but he didnt. Robert and Anna have done this as well.

    Apuffs replied

    Complete missed opportunity. All you say is true MK, but fans would have loved a contrite Frisco coming back to MAXIE not Felicia and begging for a relationship with her. Frisco could have changed and regretted his choices and made peace with a a messed up Maxie.

    Jj replied

    Bingo Jane. I loved Frisco And Felicia. His exit was badly written. I cringed while watching it, but I have a life outside of the make believe soap world and I don’t dwell on it. I’ll be labeled as not being a true Frisco & Felicia fan because I agree. So be it. According to some F&F fans no one else compares to them if your opinion differs even slightly from theirs. They also think they “know” Jack Wagner. In my opinion there is only one person who knows him the best and that would be his ex wife. She probably saw him go through many trials and tribulations. She did it without the bs of social media. She lived it for crying out loud. I’m guessing the good, the bad, and the ugly. Is this side of him we see on twitter the real Jack? If it is then I think someone made a smart decision.

    Really enjoyed seeing Jack Wagoner back as Frisco. Was so sorry to see him exit in such a sad way, I was looking forward to more of him, but yet again the writers are not listening to their fans. I think you have a mole among your writers. Someone is certainly trying to sabotage General Hospital and it’s probably the same person or people that got All My Children and One Life to Live cancelled. I’m glad Jack voiced his disappointment and think many of the other characters would love to say something but would surely be out of a job.

    I think Jack said it perfectly. It was botched and given the momentum from the Nurse’s Ball, they could have launched some terrific storylines. Instead they focused on the 3 OLTL actors and how to integrate them into GH as “new” characters again. This show has be hijacked by this effort and the whole Franco storyline. Don’t get me wrong, I love the 3 very talented actors and know they faced tough day ahead in new roles, but this is where Frank and Ron chose to go and it backfired. There were times I thought Laura was gone as she wasn’t seen in weeks and then she was having lunch with Lucy and talking about a business deal. UGHHHHH

    Jack told the truth and I’ve never been so proud to call myself his fan – dating back to his first day on GH. I only wish the rest of the GH cast – VETS – not the influx of newbies and OLTL pawns – would speak out. The bait and switch to get GH fans to watch only to have the newbies and the OLTL 3 that contract breaching Craptini turned the whole show upside down for shoved down the audience’s throat is disgusting.

    These two hacks don’t give a damn about GH. They care they lost the show they really loved OLTL and that PP didn’t roll over when they breached a contract. They tell vets like Jack and Tristan Rogers they don’t have it in the budget for their return because they needed it to fight their pissing match with PP over RH, KA and ME. They change GH history at will. Bring back the DEAD ON SCREEN of who THEY like and pretend DECADES of story that they don’t like never happened. They write the VETS completely OOC – the 30 seconds they appear. They promised a Monica/Quartermaine story and then proceeded to have Toddo (like PP doesn’t know what they’re doing with RH’s ‘new’ character’ set up residence in MONICA’s house while she nor any Quartermaines are to be seen. Monica would NEVER okay the person responsible for her grandson’s RAPE to be let in the door let alone hole up in the livingroom with a contrived Jerome.

    Every GH story and character has been pretzeled to fit these 3 OLTL rejects that BOMBED the first time out back in the canvas as ‘new’ characters. The REAL GH stars that the GH audience want to see have been sidelined. What Jack is telling you is just ONE of the many wrongs done by these two to facilitate their OLTL revival wetdream. I really wish the rest of the vets would tell it as well or just walk en masse. See how much lower the ratings will drop.

    Oh and for every soap blogger out there that wrote Craptini were the second coming and ‘heroes/saviors’ of GH. Shame on YOU!! It’s a frickin travesty and you all need to mea culpa and speak out as well. Or you were never GH fans to begin with.

    God Bless Jack Wagner. You GO boy!!!

    I SOOOO AGREE. I watched MOSTLY ALL OF THE SOAPS ON ABC, LOVING, RYAN’S HOPE, GENERAL HOSPITAL, ALL MY CHILDREN AND ONE LIFE TO LIVE. And what they have done to GH is not good. Steve Burton’s decision to leave had to do with his family but in my personal opinion, his interviews came across to me that he was not very happy with the direction of his character. JaSam lovers including myself were screwed over and other twists were hyped up as a ploy. They baited the OLTL fans with their characters only to destroy the integrity of the characters and while I am happy that RH, KA and ME were able to move on once OLTL cancelled; they appear to be a bit shady. GH was restored and when PP tried to restore OLTL and AMC, TPTB kept their main leading men even though they really don’t need them. So I am glad that JW spoke up. JMO.

    Based on the time of the night/morning he posted the message, and the tone, which is uncharacteristic of Jack Wagner, I wonder if he didn’t maybe have several adult beverages under his belt when he wrote that, lol. Just a thought on my part.

    I’m not saying he doesn’t make some valid points, but I just think that was a weird time and place to make his feelings public. And if he had such a problem with how GH used him, why did he wait more than 3 months to say anything?

    I was glad to see the character of Frisco back on GH, but I definitely think there was a lot more they could have done. I just think with everything they had going on during the 50th Anniversary, and all the returns, they did the best they could to fit everyone in, and it would have been hard to satisfy everyone.

    Agree with Jack 100%! I thought Ron & Co would fix the wrong of how Frisco was treated as a deadbeat dad in the past. So much storyline potential with Maxie. (I would love a F&F reunion but I understand the real life sensitivity of that situation.) Nope, they’d rather glorify a psycho serial killer nowadays.

    Frisco is the only one Maxie told about the baby. Even Felicia doesn’t know. Why bother keeping Mac & Felicia on to appear once every couple of months and then have a ridiculous wedding with purported guest Richard Simmons?! Puhlease.

    GH lured me back in with promises of vets with the Nurse’s Ball and shortly thereafter it became OLTL Part 2 and I took it back off the DVR. I thought we’d have Anna, Duke, Robert, Frisco, etc. Nope. Bye GH!

    He was written to leave again as is his normal , leaving..

    The story was not about him, but about Maxie..
    I think Jack was crying in his beer last night/t that he wasn’t asked to stay on GH.

    Being he was not staying on he was written to go bye bye in a way to affect Maxie..
    I thought all went well ..

    I loved Frisco & Felicia in the day and Frisco returning was one reason I watched GH 50th anniversary month. He left abruptly and as much as I like Mac, the chemistry between Frisco & Felecia was never utilized. Yes, I know they are real life ex’s, but both were in agreement that they would work together so why not go for it. They could have gone their separate ways but with some good love scenes and emotion. I also agree – for them to have Frisco & Maxie work on their relationship to make Frisco out to be a dead beat dad was ridiculous and a let down. However, RC/FV are true to form, they did they same to John McBain – destroyed history and moral character. Good Luck to Jack Wagner in whatever you do, I’m a longtime fan and only wish you the best!

    I was one of many who was doing cartwheels from February – May as GH brought back a slew of veterans that fans have been clamoring for. We were all so giddy with excitement, we didn‘t even care about the quality of the writing. Now, looking back, and seeing the shocking, garbled mess that the show is just a few months later, it is time to look back on our collective euphoria and see that most of thvets return storylines dishonoured history, destroyed characters and couples, and generally fizzled. Frisco and Mac were made out to look high school posers fighting over a cheerleader. It cheapened all three characters. Brenda and Jax were ruined after we thought they would finally get their long awaited happy ending. Brenda was once and for all sacrificed on the altar of Sonny for no good reason. Laura and Scotty returned, and were quickly married and rarely seen afterwards, while Luke and Laura‘s genre defining epic love affair was compared to a tattered old sweatshirt and tossed aside. Bobbie came back for a blink and you miss it return. Lucy brought insanity and vampires back from a chapter that should have remained closed. Now she appears once in a blue moon, and is manic and hypercharged in EVERY scene. We got one episode with Alan and Emily, two characters the audience has beenbegging to have back on a full time basis. Stavros played like a bad Saturday morning cartoon. It was nice to see everyone, and kudos to the show for doing it, but I think we all got carried away with our lavish praise and accolades. The writing did NOT support or honour the show‘s legacy. Jack Wagner has a right to be mad. Then it was like they couldnt wait to get the vets off screen so they could roll out an entirely new vision of the show, one filled with newcomers, disturbing storylines, and senseless stories. I am not a fan of this incarnation of GH…obnoxious newbie nobodies, more sick children, more mob violence, teenagers tying each other up in sex bondage, a cavalier attitude towards rape, gay sexual predators, etc, etc. This show has SERIOUSLY lost its focus and its heart.

    you are so RIGHT! I was so livid over the treatment of Frisco, I almost forgot about all the OTHER classic characters & couples Carlivati trashed, even Luke&Laura! That Brenda&Jax thing was PATHETIC. Shouldn’t have even brought them back at all if that’s what they were gonna do. I was expecting a Luke&Laura adventure story, that’s what was promised, but NO.. we got, like you said, a bad Saturday morning cartoon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad Carlivati brought these actors back, I love them, I just wish he’d spend as much time on storylines for them as he does for his boring “pets”. Yes, I got BORED with GH, quit watching the day after the “OLTL 3″ returned with their new characters.

    I think the truth is that RC cannot write. I don’t know what he does for FV such that he keeps his job, but it can’t be writing. As someone else said here, his second grade writing style and all the stupid twists and turns all indicate that he can’t do anything else. Shallow camp yes. Drama, romance, nuance, integration, sophistication – can’t touch it with a ten foot pole.

  23. Michele says:

    The return was not only a hideous disservice to the character and his fans, but most of the story did not support either Felicia’s ultimate choice OR the way Frisco chose to leave town. There was little indication that Felicia wanted to choose Mac — the only character I’ve ever seen get thrown under a bus and still get the “girl” — and every indication that Frisco really did have an interest in Maxie’s life and feelings. GH *could* have had the WSB call Frisco to help save the kidnapped Lulu, refuse, and then have Maxie *ask* him to go to save her best friend. It did not have to end so abruptly and cruelly.

    I feel that these tweets taken out of the context of Jack’s TL may make him look bitter and that is clearly not the case for longtime readers of his tweets. You may want to amend your article with the following tweet added to give it some context, Michael. Jack has been nothing but a gentleman about returning to GH and doing what he was told to do. He is only stating what I’m sure other actors may feel and are not willing to come out and say. Especially the part about the way the momentum of the 50th was blown and fans were misled. That is the only new thing that was tweeted by him and it feels great to me as a fan that he’s willing to say it out loud on Twitter to an audience of thousands. Everything else he covered is already in the history books.

    I like that Jack spoke out about how Frisco was written during his return. Being a huge Frisco and Felicia fan I was not happy with the outcome. I’m upset about the way the show is treating all of it’s veterans who have returned, but they are so focused on former OLTL actors. This is why I have stopped watching GH. I know this is not going to change anything but at least I’m not the only one that has noticed. I wish he would have done this when it happened, maybe there would have been a different outcome..

    I also love how Jack takes responsibility for not speaking up to TPTB re: his character. He is truly writing a forgiveness letter here to his fans that follow him. That is what this is all about. The part about momentum being lost is very timely though and newsworthy. I just wish it wouldn’t be used as news fodder as it’s more personal than that to many of us.

    Frisco was a scumbag, deadbeat dad so his departure from PC was really no surprise. TPTB need to bring him back to take care of Maxie
    when her time comes to deliver Little Miss Spinelli. Of course considering that Jack & Kristina are divorced no one with a brain
    thought there would be a Frisco/Felicia reunion.

    I am so happy that he finally spoke up for his fans. As a Frisco fan back in the day and now, they did a horrible job and used him to gain ratings for the 50th Anniversary. I believe if he knew what was in store for the character, he would have NEVER came back. He knows what an iconic character Frisco was to the show and his career. Don’t fault the man for moving on and furthering his career back in the day. The writers wrote around it the best they could, but it was Guza who tarnished Frisco and it was Carlitini, who could have fixed it, but chose not to. If you watched him in the last scene with Maxie, you could tell he was not pleased. It was so evident. I also think Mac and Felicia are a joke.

    I agree with you Mary…why say something now when he couldve said something right after leaving the show? Plus more than half the comments complaing about his exit i dont recall reading when he left…so why now? No one really complain when he left. And why is he doing it now? Attention? Publicity? So he left…TPTB might have asked him back in the future but i doubt it now.

    I felt Frisco was written well… I love that he tried to woo Felicia and she was right to turn him down for Mac (unless Jack Wagner was wanting a contract?). I felt like they left it at a good spot for him to return at any point. Also, there has been mention of the character by Anna and Luke as being helpful (off screen) and also by Britt, Maxie, and Felicia.

    I find his language and choice of words to be tacky and distasteful. Not sure what sparked this negative tirade by him but I hope he pulls it together.

    I didn’t think it was out of character… Frisco left and wasn’t heard from for d all of Georgie’s life and then some. So for Frisco to come and get sortof involved and then leave abruptly, I felt it was normal…

    but someone just mentioned him the other day on GH, so I figured there would always be a chance he would come back again… like when Maxie has her baby. Be nice if he’d come back and bust the Britch and her momma and bring back Robin.

    don’t burn your bridges yet, Jack!

    I think Frisco’s return was definitely botched – at very least if he and Felicia didn’t reunite he SHOULD be here for Maxie.
    Given that he knows the truth about the baby he should be supporting Maxie when it all blows up.
    But it’s over with – Frisco has come and gone…better to focus on the next venture Jack.

    Frisco wasn’t the only character written out of character since the new regime joined. Can we stop a moment and consider the farce of the Robert stories, or reactions to his coma, or the shell that is now Anna Devane, or Jax’s last comeback? There is no attention to the history, relationships and character development that made GH unique and must see for decades. The crap on now with Kiki and Franco is just embarrassing. Most folks devoted to RC/FV won’t even listen to criticism –and reject it completely like it will just go away. Life long fans are tuning out in droves and ratings are down–and instead tweets are ignored, posts on message boards deleted. Finally an actor speaks out! I applaud Jack and I thank him for voicing what so many others are thinking/saying. Viewers are baited with the “return of the vets” who have been marginalized/mocked and written negatively, while newbies and “pet rocks” clog airtime. No thanks. I have YouTube fortunately that reminds me why I used to love GH so much….

    so true .. Carlivati claims to have been a fan of GH back in the day, but all he does is mock the characters with campy storylines like the Faison debacle. WHICH I wouldn’t mind so much if the RELATIONSHIPS were true to form. Anna abandoning Robert while he’s in a coma? Mac doesn’t even go to visit him? And Robert in a coma is laughable anyway, he was WAY too smart to turn his back on a woman with a hypodermic needle – oh yes, I too can go on and on with the stupidity. I have wanted the vets back, but not with Carlivati writing, he’s not capable of giving them the respect they deserve. Sri Rao needs to be contacted, he wrote for Night Shift 2, with real affection and love for the Scorpio family and their relationships with Luke, Mac and Sean&Tiffany Donely.

    I will also add that the current regime really disappointed a lot of fans, including myself, with the handling of the 50th anniversary. They brought back all these vets and then either wasted them or did more damage to character history than we already suffered under years of the Guza era. His handling of Frisco’s return is a prime example of that.

    While I always loved Mac and Felicia, you couldn’t touch the chemistry and real love connection between Frisco and Felicia by comparison. The current regime should have honored the supercouple of Frisco and Felicia and wrote the story accordingly. Instead, the writing for super couples and legendary characters was hit or miss and mostly miss. It’s clear to me that Ron and Frank haven’t watched GH consistently for decades – only parts of it and chose to rewrite history as they saw fit in their twisted vision. Not a smart way to win over a large chunk of GH fans at a time when soaps are in serious jeopardy and GH is clearly on borrowed time.

    First I must say I began watching Gh as a tween only because of a frisco and Felicia! They were magical, funny, chemistry was amazing and iconic because we are talking about these characters, especially Frisco almost 30 years later. I did watch Gh because Felicia, Sean and Anna were beloved characters. I even grew to enjoy Mac and Felicia if we couldn’t have Frisco. Once Gh went off the deep end writing Felicia into a corner of an unauthentic resemblance of the original Character, I was done ! I truly tuned into Gh went vets came back like KW! Then I started watching gh with Frisco’s return! Yes, I didn’t think the characters would reunite due to JW and KW divorce, however I never expected that absurd Nurses Ball disaster! The scenes between Frisco and Felicia were still magical !! Though the ending at nurses ball was painful and cringe worthy to watch! I asked tptb why could you not let these characters have a mutual goodbye in accordance to how you wrote Luke and Laura? Why have Frisconmake a public marriage proposal and Felicia uses ” mam of my heart” comment was so disrespectful to F&f and Gh fans. The funny thing is I never watched YouTube, but was catching gh episodes in evenings when I tuned back in. Wow, I discover classic Gh and tons of F&f videos and fans! Now I am watching Gh 1986 Frisco and Felicia! Yes, tbtp missed the boat in this and I hope they don’t take Jws public statement on KW and kill her character off! JW of you read this, please go look at you tube and all the comments that your fans have written about you and Kristina! You two truly created a legendary super couple and real fans have blocked your ridiculous as well as bizarre exit!

    You thought the mutual goodbye between Luke and Laura was something to behold? The vast majority that I know and reactions on the message boards thought it stunk to high heaven. Having the most iconic couple ever created on television end their almost 30 year relationship by comparing it to an old sweatshirt that didn’t fit? I agree, what they did to Frisco was worse. But I wouldn’t hold up the LnL goodbye as the threshold to meet!

    My intent was to convey that if tptb were not goi g to not have these couples together to at least write Frisco and Felicia off with some mutual respect. No, by no means do I think l&l was great but just why bring a frisco back to actually have F&f leave on a sour note? Not even a hug goodbye? wish the other well?Why have JW do so much promotional shows for Gh 50 for that embarrassing ending? I rather they used other Gh actors then make it look like Frisco return was going to be more rewarding.

    Pretty much everyone that writes abt gh online has the same thoughts as wagner does abt gh. But people are going to have opinions whenever an actor’s really vocal abt his unflattering opinions on any tv show he’s acted on. But he’ll probably get attacked for talking abt religion. That’s definitely frowned upon amongst hollywood’s tolerant crowd.

I was so disappointed that JW/Frisco did not get more time with Maxie and Felicia and Anna and many others. The scenes between Frisco and Maxie were truly exceptional and I wanted soooooooooooooooooooo much more!!! I loved seeing the legendary characters come back and yet it was just a taste and not much more which was very frustrating!

    I have been trying not to buy into the conspiracy theory that RC/FV want to tank GH. I want GH to be on for years… but I want it to be true to GH. The newbies that we just don’t care about… the annoying and icky characters… the Franco mess… the OLTL3 characters and small amounts of air time the greats are getting are all adding up to a bad recipe and it’s just so sad!!! I truly hope that RC and FV get a clue and move some of this crap along. I like RH but I can’t wait for his scenes as Franco or faux Jason to be over!!!

    I guess it takes one beautiful mind to know another. I actually have a degree in psychology… and after processing what I saw… I came to the conclusion that they were playing the schizophrenia story to the heightened level. We did not have any storyline prep for this and usually with this type of story you have a character that is not evil incarnate to go through this and certainly not without more warning than one minute he has a seizure and the next he has a brain tumor and the next he may have severe schizophrenic episodes. This level of illness would not come on that abruptly. I would have expected this kind of a storyline to build and be with a character that we cared about… so we could champion for him..This is hitting us like a mack truck and it’s the despicable Franco and at least James Franco was reasonably attractive to get caught up in. They have RH looking like a badly beaten up cartoon character and it’s just so painfully pathetic and so very unnecessary. I adore GH and want so badly to love it all but this is just too over the top and beyond.

    Just b/c folks weren’t writing on THIS message board, doesn’t mean they weren’t expressing it. There are tons of message boards out there–and many people have been disappointed for a year now. See the reactions to the Jax-Brenda return, the handling of Robert, the use of Frisco, the front and center of Todd/Star/McBain — and now Franco/Kiki/Silas. The thing is I know there are folks out there that are supporting TPTB, but folks shouldn’t just discard the negative feedback. There is A LOT. Not b/c people are “whining” — there are things (pace, story lines, use of characters) that fans are not enjoying. Instead of insulting dedicated viewers, perhaps folks should worry about whether there is something to what they are saying, if viewership will tank, etc.

    Better late than never for addressing this travesty, although I have repeatedly made passing mention of it in various previous postings on other subjects. The trashing of the Frisco character has been amongst the most egregious transgressions on GH this year!!!! Wagner’s return to the show was one of the brightest spots of spring, along with Rick Springfield’s performance at the Nurses’ Ball….both of these show vets provided more excitement and enjoyment in their all-too-brief appearances than all the other performers combined! Although it is my understanding that “Noah” does not wish for a more permanent role (unfortunately…) I have always found his brief pop-ups to be a very welcome treat, and with Jack it was that times a thousand!!! He really did seem to instantly become Frisco again, and he was flawlessly integrated into the existing storylines to justify his existence. There were so many great future possibilities for his character, including playing father to the troubled Maxie, being an ongoing thorn-in-the-side to Britt, helping out Anna with police business and serving as all-around resident PC hero to investigate the regular odd happenings courtesy of Jerry Jacks, the Cassadines, etc. He could definitely have been incorporated into the current Luke plot, and was even named in regard to that the other day, plus there are still the other outstanding mysteries surrounding Robin and Robert…someone needs to put two and two together in reference to that Swiss clinic mess!!!! As for not reuniting the man with “Felicia,” sooooo what???? I have never been a fan of that supercouple…always thought that Frisco belonged with a more sophisticated type of woman, someone like an Anna Devane!!! I cannot stand either Mac nor his annoying fiancee’…they have provided no positive contributions whatsoever, apart from BBQing that dumb doll!!! I say marry this boring pair and send them off for a loooong honeymoon…they won’t be missed. And there is problem solved for any viewer who thinks that Jones’ relocation to PC would be awkward in the presence of his former wife. He could still return for his grandchild’s birth and decide to stick around…he could also perhaps mirror real-life and examine his life choices, express his regrets and maybe even explore a struggle with alcoholism. Given what I have read of Jack’s tweets about his personal demons, he would probably be receptive to bringing his own experiences to the role. Just an idea….at any rate, it is not too late to remedy this sorry chapter of GH history. (And while we are on the subject, the treatment of Scorpio has been nearly as bad….please move toward a resolution to his comatose limbo….) Lastly, whatever transpires, best of wishes to Wagner….he will always be welcome back to PC or wherever) for his true fans.

Cartini has been a BIT kinder to him than were the hacks in charge when he returned in the virus storyline, but not by much! You should have guessed that Frisco, Bobbi, Noah, etc. were NOT part of Cartini’s long-term plans for the show, based on prior treatment of these legacy characters. I hope that Holly’s first words to Robert when he finally wakes up are “You haven’t missed much!”

Not hard at all. If Jack ever goes back they have to fix this by showing scenes not originally shown regarding the above mentioned threat and that he knew if he put felicia on the spot at the nurses ball she would say no and give him the proper cover to leave, even if it made people happy he was gone. And to Jack: You have been in this game a long time. You read the script, shame on you for not demanding a better exit. To longtime fans of yours you owe it to go back and shoot a few redeeming scenes to fix this for all your fans. Of course we would rather see a nice 2 year stint of frisco but if thats not possible then please go back and fix this…..

Jack only said what his fans have been saying since aril. i went on every social media i could find to vent my displeasure . i also called and wrote and of course no respond from any one in charge. i stop watching back on 4/813 and i am glad i did.

If you look at the asinine comments of the minions on twitter they wonder how the hell the actress could have agreed to say such an awful thing about Frisco, this FICTIONAL character, and on the actor’s birthday. Anyway, Didn’t she check the calender? Should she ring up Ron and say, “Well I can’t say this on Oct. 3rd, but I can do it on the 2nd or 4th, how does that sound?” Doesn’t she know how they loved f&f and how much that FICTIONAL CHARACTER meant to Jack Wagner and to them? Doesn’t she care? So the minions are attacking the actress now for saying the lines that are in the script. Did she mean any harm? Hell no! She was reading the words on the page. Leave her alone. Leave Ron Carlivati alone. Quit acting like twitter bullies and grow up.

    Of course they did. It’s a soap and the couple was hugely popular. I have been told one thing by my boss and then the complete opposite happens. Haven’t we all? Nature of the biz. Sure I could rip on my boss in private but never on twitter. I have often wondered if Mr. Wagner was overconfident that he was going to come in and the writers would do what he wanted. This may have worked for other regimes but apparently not for Frank V. I think Frank served him a piece of humble pie and Wagner did not like the taste of it.

    I don’t think he should of ever come back! He is a Jackass in real life for what he did to Kristina and to try and have some storyline that put him back with her was wrong. In my humble opinion he is an arrogant egotistical self centered narcissist who deserves what he gets. Glad to see he failed on Dancing with the Stars as well. Seems to be his life goal is to be nothing more than a cry baby and a “pussy”

    To all of you Jack/Frisco bashers. You don’t know Squat, you don’t get it, and I doubt you ever will. Your loss!

    That’s right, our loss. I could care less if he comes back to GH and I loved Frisco and Felicia. He made a complete fool of himself with his twitter comments plain and simple. Oh, and I did and still do “get it”. There are people out there who think that they are the select few experts on the subject of “F&F” and their real life portrayers. Laughable.

    I loved the Frisco/Felicia relationship back in the day. I stopped watching when he left the first time.I saw them on Oprah when they were about to have a baby. I was so broken hearted when I heard they divorced.They were such a beautiful couple on and off screen .I had hoped with his return they might reconcile for real.I’m a hopeless romantic I guess. The spark was there once and you never know.

    I would totally start watching General Hospital again if they brought back the Frisco and Felicia love story. I stopped watching it when Frisco was taken off the show the second time. I truly believe they would have a much stronger following if they brought back Frisco and Felicia. My mom was a Luke and Laura Lover. She would love to see those two back on. Please consider bringing back Frisco and Felicia.
