    I for one can’t wait. On April 1, the official Anniversary, it is also my birthday. So.. I took the day off from work, and will be watching and toasting both events. The only sad part.. Mom won’t be here to share it with.

    YES, YES, YES, cannot wait for all of it! I am l loving the way they are sliding characters from the past back & weaving them seamlessly into currents stories! Just love every minute every day. So thankful to still have my shows. I am excited to get up every day & watch. I watch every show currently on the air & can’t wait for OLTL to get back on, if I can find the time I’ll try to get back into AMC. It is HARD to keep up with all the shows now that I do not have my trusty tv/vcr player at my new job, BOO HOO! I really scramble on the weekend to catch up but I manage. LOVE THE SOAPS.

    The on air show was great today. I loved that Sabrina finally confessed her crush to Patrick and that Epiphany put Patrick in his place.

    Kelly Monaco is the perfect person to be feature on 20/20 GH’s 50!!! Not only is she talented, beautiful, she is well known. She’s a great legend and I hope to see more of her on daytime TV.

    With all this publicity ABC has been getting 4 GHs 50th, theyd be a fool to cancel the show knowing all the attention its given them. But you never know with these networks. Hopefully after the nurses ball ect. the ratings will still be there and the show will eventually be extended past 2014. The biggest suspense will see what happens next after the nurses ball and vets return is over. That will be the real test if FV and RC can keep our interest up. Theyve done an amazing job so far and im hoping that’ll continue as well as my show.

    I’ve been thinking about that too… there doesn’t seem to be too much story on the show that doesn’t involve an exiting OLTL cast member or a GH veteran that will be walking out the door. I don’t mind, I love the show and trust RC as head writer… but agree that there’s an element of suspense for when the party’s over. However, at the end of the day, I think the last time I was this invested in GH was back in the mid90s back during Luke/Laura’s original return, the Ward family, etc.

    Does anyone remember Daffy Doodle on GH? Back in the 1980s Laura went missing for some time. Then on a cliffhanger episode we were about to see her return but that was delayed by one episode because some insane writer decided to tease us by doing a short story arc invovling this clown named Daffy Doodle featured in the entire 1 hour. We aggravated fans had to wait the next day to see Luke reunite with Laura. Now im thinking how cool that would be if it happened again. On April 1st is GHs long awaited 50th anniversary. What if we tuned in and instead find the entire episode devoted to the return of Daffy Doodle? And we had to wait the next episode to see the shows 50th? Would you think this a clever nod to the shows past, and a funny APRIL FOOLS DAYS joke, or would you be so irate you’d want to stone the producer and writer for clowning around? LOL!

    Never happen.. but I wouldn’t put it past someone to preempt half the hour by a news story about a stolen bicycle… other than the Pope and Sandy, I don’t really see why ‘big news’ always seems to happen during this show rather than, say, Katie or the Chew or something. Now it would be funny if said ‘news interruption’ was a part of the story especially if it was a car chase covered by the Port Charles media … it’d be a clever nod to the whole OJ thing that gets blamed time and time again for being the wrecking ball to daytime.

    I know that it would never happen…it was my way of kinda spoofing how some of us our wondering what vets are coming back, and how the writer brings the vets back then we have to wait and see them for another few episodes. Thanks 4 the reply.

    APRIL FOOLS…there will be no GH 50th anniversary celebration on April 1. On that day ABC will interupt the entire episode that to announce the return of Brian Frons who will be in charge once again of daytime programing and is replacing GH with a new talk show hosted by JFP. LOL

    It would be a disaster and dont i know it. Im just having a little fun for a change after reading so much negative stuff.

    I hate OLTL and will not watch. I no longer watch GH when The Mannings are on it.

    Oh, Suzanne! I will not cry for thee…ill still still be wacthing OLTL with a laptop on my knee. (Not making fun of your decision …its your choice. But hate is a very strong word. I know we cant like everything but isnt there one thing you did like about the show? And dont say when it got cancelled! lol

    Suzanne replied

    YES..the incredible actress Susan Haskell, Robin Strasser and Trevor St. John…all of wom RC canned.

    jim replied

    You picked some of my favorites. But i dont feel RC is total blame for them being canned as you put it but i did hear Susan wasnt too pleased by the way her character was written and i didnt like that too much myself but RC still did a great with the rest of the show in my book. Makes me wonder if Robin wouldve rejoined PP reboot if RC remained the headwriter if he was really responsible for her departure. Also if he was responsible for Trevor being axed, it seems Trevor didnt care otherwise he wouldnt have return to film that last scene with RC still there. But you never know with these people. Thanks 4 the reply. Wish you well. Jim.

    Looking forwaard to GH’s 50th!! Sorry got tired real quick when GH ruined John McBain & Todd Manning characters from OLTL. GH fans may like them but I don’t like them as well as when they were on OLTL so after the nurses ball I’ll say good bye.
    Looking forward tho to Rick Springfield, Frisco & Felicia and where is Demi Moore?

    gh is really old for ageist hollywood standards. gh is 50 and yet it still lacks a lot of racial diversity. That’s reflective of tolerant hollywood’s thinking towards racial diversity. Majority of these soaps can’t grasp that and they are dwindling. Thank goodness for a racially diverse soap like scandal. Low rated abc soap revenge has cast yet another white leading char for a triangle w/ emily and daniel. abc’s lone daytime soap gh lacks African american and especially Asian american chars. You’d think abc would have more racial diversity on their soaps considering how scandal’s 18-49 demo is triumphing against all its competition. But of course not bec that would mean more racial minorities on their soaps. That’s typical of tolerant hollywood.
