194 August 14th, 2014 Should Lucas, Brad & Felix Have A Three-Way On General Hospital?

Courtesy/ABC

Lots of chatter about a menage a trois on yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, and lots of chatter on social media, too!  Fans of the show reacted strongly one way, or the other, to the story plotpoint that has Lucas (Ryan Carnes), Brad (Parry Shen), and Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) entertaining the notion of having a three-way together.

The actual seed of this was  sexual-exploit was planted on a recent episode of the ABC soap opera when Lucas, after watching Brad and Felix bicker over him, told the guys that they, “both could have him!”

Now Brad is thinking a three-way might just help win Lucas for himself, Lucas told Carly (Laura Wright) he doesn’t have to commit to anyone and wants to have some fun, and Felix is trying to loosen up and make the situation palpable for him, after having a conversation about it with none other than Franco (Roger Howarth)!

So, what do you think?  Should the guys have a three-way?  Will it be a mistake?  Do you think some clarify will come out of it for all of them?  Were you offended or disturbed by the plot point in some way?   Share your comments below!

    The children on GH can be cute and funny at times but not this storyline…Ive been entertained by gay storylines on other soaps past and present but this possible Lucas/Felix/Brad threesome is just a filler and drags the show…a pointless plotline that goes nowhere but down…a Lucas and Brad pairing could be interesting but not with Felix is one of many characters who have over stayed there welcome…sorry but its like the writer doesnt really know what to do with these three…and the same goes for Scotty, Bobbi and Lucy and their equally boring loveless triangle!!! imo…like it or not!!!

    I am also done with Scotty, Bobbie and Lucy. I have to say yesterday it peaked my interest the idea of the 3 having a love affair. I can see some nice twist.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Yeah Jen…i can see some twists all right…sarcasm!!!

    Harry replied

    I agree, Jim (and you too, Jen). If GH is going to embrace a gay storyline, they need to do it utilizing the three r’s–1. Realism 2. Respect and 3. Romance. This is stereotyping at its worst and incredibly patronizing and insulting.
    One would think RC, who is openly gay, would be able to come up with a quality storyline.

    Shay replied

    Exactly, jimh! This storyline has a complete yuck factor …..just as does the Bobbie, Scotty and Lucy triangle!!!l! It has all the juvenile elements of naughty little children planning some sort of taboo, clandestine rendezvous in the basement, unbeknownst to their parents!!!! The only remotely amusing thing about this entire scenario was when Franco spoke of his own three-way experience back in the day in NYC….he mentioned some chicks called “Ally” and was it “Jocelyn?”…couldn’t quite make out the second name, but he mentioned a redhead. Those of course, were characters from the “The City” played by Laura Wright and Lisa LoCicero…anyone else catch it? Now, THAT’s what makes a soap special…those unexpected small touches that show some care and attention have been put into the writing! P.S. I am especially disappointed in Lucas….given how he was once portrayed as a sensitive and caring individual, his latest incarnation as a nonchalant, slacking “dude” has been most disconcerting. As for the other two, I have immensely warmed up to Brad since they dropped his pervy predator act and made him more human and humorous, particularly with Britt and Dr. O., but I totally agree with you about Felix….he has worn out whatever small welcome he ever had, and I would not be sorry to see him go permanently!!!!

    This entire story is an embarrassment and ABC should really be ashamed to put it on the air. There really seems to be no one minding the store. This show is desperate for attention. It can’t attract an audience with quality storytelling and writing, because they don’t have the talent, so they stoop lower and lower to try and generate buzz on social media. If the head writer can’t sit at his desk and tweet crude lines and fight with people, it seems his life has no purpose.

    I don’t mind the introduction of a three-way into a story line. I don’t find that edgy or pushing the envelope considering what we have seen on TV and even soaps over the years. But I do have issues with this particular story.

    First, as with every other story on this show, the writing is awful. Wednesday’s show that had multiple people all talking about a potential gay three-way was uncomfortable, awkward and boring. And as a side note, the introduction of Franco into the mix, and with his shirt of f(something I could do without) was hysterical. Not because Howarth is so entertaining, because he is absolutely not, but because it just reiterates that they have no idea what to do with this awful mess that is Franco and now they have him sputtering around show, almost as if he’s photo bombing scenes that he has no business being in.

    Thursday’s show was just as awkward. the three men standing in the hospital trying to pick a place for their activities. The dialogue and acting were so amateurish, it was what you would expect to see on Cinemax at 2am.

    What is really offensive to me is the portrayal of the three gay men on the show. They are all stereotyped in the most unflattering terms. Not one or even two of them, but all three. I’m not opposed to a gay man being portrayed in an unfavorable light on a show. Straight men and women are and everyone is fair game. If you don’t have people with issues, you don’t have a soap. But all three?

    Lucas and Brad are two randy and promiscuous guys and Felix is a snarky, judgmental know it all who is mainly the BFF of Sabrina whose life he tries to run and who gives her fashion advice. When we see these guys together, someone is usually shirtless or in a towel, someone is drooling and they are talking about nonsense and the dialogue is atrocious, uncomfortable and at a point that I feel bad for the actors in the scenes. And of course all three are into the Golden Girls and mention it every time they are together. It is all so juvenile, low brow and so poorly executed. Just embarrassing.

    Timmm replied

    Your right Jim, this is filler. I dont care if there are gay characters but give them a story line. Have Julian introduce his son to an art dealer he knows from Manhattan and bring him into the picture. Someone mysterious. GIVE LUCAS A STORY LINE! If you told someone who was gay who didnt watch GH, there were three gay characters on the show and you should watch. They would tune out in 5 minutes! Come on RANK, write something real for these guys. What about Brad and his connection with the Asian Quarter? Felix is just fluff for when ” I Dream of Sabrina” returns!

    davidevansmith replied

    AMC on Hulu MENTIONED a threeway as a plot point from a homophobic teenager who was making a homophobic slur against Miranda because she has a lesbian mother. It wasn’t conceived of as a legitimate storyline, nor was it the cause of AMC (or OLTL’s) second cancellation.

    Anyone that “may like” don’t have good taste like you? That’s a rather bold and argumentative statement that puts any large group or variety of people in one narrow, negative category.

    The revived DALLAS ended their mid-season on a cliffhanger involving an out-of-left-field 3way between John Ross and his wife and mistress.

    I applaud GH for tackling the topic. It’s still pretty much taboo in television and movies alike. They presented three diverse reasons the parties involved might get involved, their hesitations, interests, and misgivings, and also presented diverse reactions from outsiders. Franco alluded to having a 3way in “The City” with a girl named Ally (a character Laura Wright played on THE CITY) and a redhead whose name he didn’t remember (the redhead on THE CITY was Jocelyn Brown, played by Lisa Lo Cicero, GH’s Olivia, and likely didn’t mention the name since Carly’s daughter is also named Josslyn). Overall, the topic of the 3way was implied to be for the more free-spirited characters on the show, open-minded and upfront/blunt. Carly, who had her wild days, said it wasn’t for her, but she also didn’t shame her brother for being interested in the idea, or imply he didn’t have good taste. She just asked that it not happen at her house, which I’d understand with a young child living there, ANY kind of sexual experimentation could create a lot of questions a child isn’t ready to ask or hear the answers to.

    But point of fact: Threeways happen in real life. I’m impressed GH wants to be the one to at least call that out. It shows that they are progressive, bold, fearless, and modern to just ACKNOWLEDGE it. It hasn’t happened yet, and it may not, but all they did was bring it up as a discussion point, which is hardly worth condemnation. If they wanted to tackle a long-term threeway relationship, or open marriage, or any other progressive expressions of love and romantic interest, I’d applaud them too, but realistically, this is a baby step, probably just to stir the pot.

    The three characters involved remained in-character in their viewpoints on the topic. Brad, open to it out of desperation for Lucas. Felix, hesitant but wanting to expand his boundaries and start making bigger choices with his own life. And Lucas, a bit greedy and selfish, not wanting to get serious with either of them, but to have his cake and eat it too.

    Whole episode blew my mind, in the best way possible, that these characters could discuss an adult topic like mostly mature adults. It was organic. And I don’t think it was in bad taste at all.

    Shay replied

    I’m with you, jimh! This is just another unnecessary example of GH pushing the envelope into more and more tasteless territory, along with the crypt sex and the regularly used off-color sexual innuendo that is becoming quite commonplace on this show. It is inappropriate for network programming, particularly daytime when minors could be more apt to stumble upon it ….that’s why cable was created in the first place, to offer this material to those who crave it.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I said attempted when i met mentioned…also AMC did a groundbreaking contriversal storyline about sex trafficing…the sex trafficing was draggy…my point is that certain ‘groundbreaking’ stories like these dont always work and did not bring in high ratings for AMC…

    Well said, davidevansmith. Soap operas are supposed to represent the times we live in and let their characters discuss issues and feelings. This worked on both those levels.

    GH50 replied

    @davidevansmith, I commend you. Your description of the story is ten times more intelligent and sophisticated than what is actually on the screen. The story is horrible, the writing and directing amateurish and the acting awkward and stilted.

    Yes, Dallas ended with an “out of left field” three-way. The story for those characters is not about a three-way. They are engaged in a complex, well written and finely acted story. I wouldn’t compare a quality show like Dallas to the amateurish mess that is GH.

    Reply

    davidevansmith replied

    LOL… thank you? I guess?

    Obviously we all have opinions, that’s the point of this thread, message boards, and frankly the internet. Respect for those opinions is what I was questioning with some prior blanket statements made here.

    We all invest in different characters, and to different degrees. Anyone NOT invested in the gay storyline and characters on GH will not give it the thought, consideration and analysis that I might, as I am invested in the gay characters. But to then take the topic and say anyone interested in the plot point doesn’t have good taste like the person who is making the comment is pretty much saying your OPINION is both right and more important than another’s. Which is simply not true. But it does go part and parcel with the obligatory threat to stop watching the show altogether if this was to continue or the TALK of a 3way actually came to fruition. A statement like that is made all the time when viewers don’t like something they see or expect that something is going a way they don’t want it to. But it does seem contradictory when the argument is also made that the triangle in question is weak because it has no impact on the rest of the show (like the comparison has been made to Bobbie/Scott/Lucy). If it has no impact on the rest of the show, why quit the show?

    On DAYS you had two young gays who decided to get married and raise a baby together, in their early 20s. On GH, you have three gays who are all young and exploring themselves and want different things, and are considering a threesome. All shows can’t tell the same story. The characters aren’t the same. Their wants aren’t the same. And if I’m pressed to look around at real life and ask what’s more realistic? I actually think GH is more reflective of what gay men in their 20s are talking about and doing, than what’s going on over at DAYS. I don’t use my opinions to call either story disgusting, or garbage, or pigeon hole a fan base or call them tasteless. Everyone has DIFFERENT tastes, doesn’t mean they don’t HAVE taste.

    I brought up DALLAS because it is a recent tangible example of three STRAIGHT characters who are young and just grazed the topic (before a convenient twist of a seizure interrupted the proceedings), and everyone who wants to slam GH for taking on the TOPIC of a 3way (as nothing has actually been shown yet) with three gay characters will also in the same breath say they don’t want it on TV whether it be about straight people or gays. GH actually put more thought, discussion, and exposition about it on the screen, from the involved parties AND their friends, and DALLAS actually DID come out of left field and there was no discussion at all. So “well written” is another example of personal opinion. I know more of what the GH characters are going through in their minds and hearts because GH actually told us. DALLAS didn’t do that. But I don’t recall the same fervor about the DALLAS cliffhanger, a thread on this site unto itself about the 3way topic alone (since they were possibly the first to explore it on a network serial drama), or 89 replies (at current count) going back and forth about whether it’s morally acceptable to DISCUSS on TV. I don’t recall that happening over the straight 3way on DALLAS. And those characters were actually all half-naked in bed together and kissing and touching. These gays on GH just talked about the idea with their BFFs. And people are threatening to tune out for good. But they also have nothing against gays.

    I just feel like if you don’t like it, say it. Fine. If you don’t want to see it, tune out. If you don’t like thinking about gay guys having a 3way, own it. But I take issue with the moral judgment on anyone who IS open to seeing where the story goes, moral judgment on whether those people have taste, and calling it garbage, when there are plenty of people in the world who will live and let live. At this point in the conversation, there’s no point of introducing the NOTION that a 3way actually could be romantic (cause who defines romance? Or what is sexy? Or what desirability looks or feels like? Or whether one person can satisfy one person completely?), or that a 3way relationship can exist or be successful in real life, that might just take people over the edge.

    Patrick replied

    moral judgment : a decree spouted first… is

    bringing out of the closet… whats real… from the start LIVES

    I am proud of the onward upward and consensual attitude

    Harry replied

    Dave, I see no moral judgement here. Ron throws things in there in such a way as to make fans say,”Yes–I am all for gay storylines!” Or, “Yay! They’re bringing back the vets.” Then there is no follow through, and if anyone says,’I don’t want to see that,” they are considered borderline prudish or worst yet, homophobic. No one wants to be that stick in the mud person.
    However, if they are going to go there, why not first establish a romance for Lucas. Find him a viable romantic partner and then establish a relationship. I don’t think you understand this is stereotyping at its worst. The only objections I see here are people who want good character driven storylines for all of the characters, be them gay or straight. Maybe I am a hopeless romantic, maybe I remember Tony telling Lucas on his deathbed to find someone who will respect and love him. I want better for Lucas–I don’t want him to be involved in the gay man’s version of Amy Vinning (Felix) and more than I want him to be involved with that mouth breathing creep (Brad) and the idea of him simultaneously being involved with both is rather sickening to me. And I assure you, I am neither a prude or a homophobe.

    davidevansmith replied

    @Harry

    The moral judgment I’m talking about is those who are deeming a 3way disgusting, calling anyone who is open to it “tasteless” in comparison to themselves who oppose it. That’s disrespectful of other viewers and going out of one’s way to attack other VIEWERS, not the show’s choices.

    I am a homosexual and I don’t disagree with you about ultimately wanting better for Lucas in the long run. I wrote fiction that made Lucas gay YEARS before GH brought him out of the closet themselves. But I don’t think he needs to be in a happy committed monogamous relationship right now. I LIKE that he’s young and wants to have fun, meet people, hook up, not settle down at this point in his life. It’s more real to me than DAYS having two early 20s gays get married and raise a baby together. I can’t relate to that. I’m 31, and I’m hoping to be at a place like that within the next 9 years. But I certainly wasn’t ready at 22 (when I graduated college) and certainly not if I just came out of the closet the year before (like Will Horton).

    Do I think this 3some stuff CAN perpetuate stereotypes about gays being about sex and emphasizing sex over love and all that? Yes, I do think it can perpetuate a stereotype. But at the same time, I don’t want my soaps and stories to all be formulaic, predictable, pollyanna and interchangeable. I think a television writer has more of an obligation to ME to write a realistic story about diverse gay characters than an obligation to write a story that paints the entire gay community in the most positive light possible. As a gay man, I don’t want any writer to whitewash gays, we’re all human and have flaws and make mistakes like anyone. I want Lucas to stumble and be a bit of a mess, and experiment and try things and find out what works for him and what doesn’t. That’s more of a journey to me. That’s going to tell me MORE about who he is than if he “met cute” with a boy and they held hands and shared pie at Kelly’s and got married and adopted a kid together. There’s a place for all that too, but it doesn’t need to be right now, not in the first year where we are still learning, along with Lucas, who Lucas is. He’s been off-canvas since he came out in… 2006?

    There are gay players out there who enjoy 3ways, who don’t want to settle down, who want to be more of the predator than the prey. Queer as Folk explored this with the Brian Kinney character. Felix discovered Friday that the 3way just wasn’t him, and he’s going to hold out for that romance and commitment. Good for him. But if you don’t like Felix because he gives you shades of Amy Vining (and I LOVED Amy Vining, rest in peace Shell Kepler), then you might be disappointed that HIS viewpoint isn’t being lived through Lucas, the character you’re more attached to because of nostalgia. I remember before Lucas even returned that Bobbie was visiting town and someone (Lulu, I believe) asked about him, and Bobbie wished he would just settle down and find love. And here, all this time later, he’s still not ready to do that. It’s part of his journey. Maybe he’ll be with Brad for a while, and realize Brad is only able to offer sex and Lucas will start to yearn for more substance and commitment and then turn to Felix or someone new. But he has to get there in his own time.

    What I’m seeing on-screen are two extremes and one character that could go either way. Felix is the conservative, relationship-minded gay. Brad is the shallow, depraved, manipulative, morally-challenged gay. Lucas is in the middle, and could go towards the dark or the light. I imagine the fact that he had Bobbie and Tony raising him, and now has Julian to influence him, that light vs. dark will become more apparent in his relationships to his parents and family and friends.

    But I’m grateful for the variety of perspectives we’re exploring and it’s more layered this way. It’s going to take a longer time to explore the story and develop the characters. It IS character driven, you just don’t agree with the characterizations. I would take this ANY day over the shortcut to happiness it sounds like you’re looking for. It sounds like your version of Lucas would be a lot more vanilla than the complex version I’m seeing and enjoying. This Lucas is a bit more of a rogue, and what I would expect from a Spencer man. And also now a Jerome heir. He’s not an angel.

    So I appreciate that you’re concerned about gay stereotypes, but I want to see all types of gays on TV. And if Lucas is more of that “gray area” character, that’s a hell of a lot more entertaining for me to watch as he develops over time.

    Harry replied

    David, I cannot compete with your copious prose, but I think I understand what you are saying here.
    Did you watch HBO’s Six Feet Under? The best couple on that series was David and Keith. They had chemistry, they had conflict–they loved and respected each other. But David got bored and initiated a three way with a stranger. The end result was that David realized that Keith was the only man for him and he learned something from it. The important thing to note here is that these two had established a relationship first. We viewers were involved in all of their domestic issues and viewers, be they gay or straight related to this couple. Someone might say,”Yes, but Harry, you idiot, Six Feet Under was not a soap opera.” To which I would protest, ‘But it is a soap opera. Any drama with ongoing dramas to be continued are basically belongs in the soap opera genre.’
    General Hospital’s writing was once on par with good quality drama writing. I complain because I know it can do better. I have seen it do better. What I am seeing flash before my disgusted eyes is not good storytelling–it’s just not.

    davidevansmith replied

    Harry I did watch Six Feet Under, possibly my favorite series of all time. I would also consider it a soap opera, as it was serialized storytelling.

    Difference for me is, as I remember it, they went through a hell of a lot of David’s craziness as he was coming to terms with his sexuality before being branded an open, out couple. Fights, drug use, sex with others, all sorts of things. It’s been years since I watched the series, though. But I remember all first season he was stealing moments with Keith while still hiding his sexual orientation from his family, who all pretty much knew anyway, LOL.

    Yes, once they settled into their relationship, then there was the itch to explore, and I remember the threeway (with “that veiny guy”, as they called him), and yeah, I’d consider that good storytelling.

    I would consider GH’s too, and that’s where we will agree to disagree. Lucas/Brad won’t follow the same linear path, and while Lucas is out, he still openly admits he has a lot to figure out about himself before wanting to settle down and for me that’s okay.

    After Friday, this whole hubbub about the threesome pretty much resolved itself, as Felix backed out, Lucas admitted he had chosen Brad, and they two hopped into bed together. So maybe they’re going to start dating, who knows? But I guess my takeaway from this was that I’m glad GH even approached the subject of a gay threeway, on daytime TV, in 2014. Cause it’s real, and it happens, and there’s room to acknowledge that in my opinion, without it being the destruction of gay representation in the media. I just wish more people would be open to the journey before throwing up their hands and claiming the sky is falling.

    Give Lucas a real and viable romantic partner and viewers will be cheering him all the way.

It is just one of the many reasons I cannot stand this guy. (His iron-clad association with Sappy is another…..) I am more charitable when it comes to Brad because he makes me laugh…especially when he is in cahoots with Britt!

    @jmh All I see with these three is no substance to their characters most of the time they are shirtless. I see them as what they are just a after thought for RC. My biggest concern yesterday was Liz/RH I am beginning to get very concerned with her weight loss am I the only one who has noticed? Not bashing the actress I adore her just awfully thin.

    sonniorsolita replied

    Um, the best part about these characters is that they are not trapped in so-called “gay storylines.” Brad is a schemer who teamed up with Britt for the baby swap. His sexuality was irrelevant to that plot and his character. Felix is a good friend to Sabrina, a hard worker, a genuine nice guy who just happens to be gay. Lucas… well, I think he’s just eye-candy, to be honest. Young people of all orientations think about three-ways in their wild years. This isn’t a gay story as much as a young-and-crazy story. And Coronation Street had one of the campest stereotypically gay characters ever, for those who worry about that sort of thing, lol.

    I agree…

    Lucas is eye candy for these two : (Felix and Brad ) to explore their psychosis and current contribution to their lot in life

    Not interested in three ways, gay or straight. Not interested in key characters promoting it. Not impressed Ron and writers feel they have to go with this kind of innuendo, sex or not, to tantalize a storyline. However my instincts are that Ron and writers are using three way as a teaser, and the Lucas is going to set up something entirely different than sex. Interesting comment any writer in show but could learn from…after Lauren Bacall died and they showed clips from some of her movies, it was noted she always had her clothes on. And I might add, she was/is still sexier than all of these other young actresses seeing how much skin they can show off. Same might be said for Bogart.

    Good twist on a triangle. What will be really interesting is if it develops into a three way relationship. Plenty of good drama potential there. It’s thinking outside the box which is refreshing. I don’t think it’s a big deal – it’s not like they’re the main characters or something.

    In addition to my response to jimh, while I wouldn’t be opposed to them exploring what emotional impact a 3way has on the parties involved, today I got the impression that it would resolve itself by Milo coming out of the closet to Felix and Felix ultimately coming down on the more conservative side and backing out of the 3way.

    Could Milo have been struggling with his sexuality? He said it wasn’t a girl, and Sonny assumed he meant a woman. His ringtone on his phone was rather “circuit party”- sounding kind of music. Milo was concerned about his Father’s antiquated opinions. And once Sonny took the pizza off Milo’s hands to deliver to Carly, Milo made a beeline for Felix at the hospital to make a confession to him. Do they dare make Magic Milo gay?! GH hasn’t done a coming out story since Lucas back in… 2004? Ten years later, with three out-and-proud gay characters on the scene, maybe they want to explore a character who is adjusting to his truth from day one?

    One more thing…like the Scotty/Bobbi/Lucy triangle the Lucas/Brad/Felix just stays in one place and doesnt connect to other stories…just a pointless filler to drag those other stories and thats the main problem i have here…if there was a connecting point to the other stories other than Brad talking to Britt about his love life and Lucy going on about hers to anyone who cares to listen to her…then maybe i wouldnt object to it as much…both triangles straight and gay add nothing to the show and will not increase ratings…boring stuff more likely will hurt the show…however, if it turns out about Milo ect. the way you think it might that is somewhat better than if it goes the way some of us thought it would…i could be wrong but i thought perhaps Milo might ask Felix about Sabrina…ill wait and see…best to let things play out first!!!

    sounds like a crazy scene from a game of twister.

    as far as the storyline goes, I don’t think it will be as exciting as Lucas thinks; don’t think Brad will get closer to Lucas; and don’t think Felix will feel comfortable… he may just be a one man guy.

    It makes it insulting to the gay community bc everyone knows that gay men are running the show(Frank and Ron). How is this suppose to add romance or drama to the show?? And being gay myself, they certainly won’t show any scenes of the actual act bc it’s still DAYTIME tv…..even if this were a straight storyline, i’d be voicing this opinion. and Lucas looks like a horndog for being the one to suggest it. Just kind fills that cliche that gay men can’t have real romance, that we just hop into bed with each other. Which is true in a lot of cases, but not all. :(

    For starters, this is not your grandmother’s soap opera!!!

    I was entertaining the idea of a threesome for these characters for quite some time. It seems to be a natural progression. Let’s face it: Threesomes happen in the real world, with all possible combinations. And for anyone who has ventured into that territory—and count me among them—they can be fun but also filled with drama. Sometimes it opens up a can of worms whereby jealousy and resentment surface. So, if the writers approach this as more than a throwaway 1-week storyline, and actually mine the conflict that lies therein, it could be well worth it. Sure, many viewers don’t want to hear about (let alone see) 2 or more men in bed together. If, however, they care about the characters, then they will be intrigued by the journey.

    Just turn the dial to DOOL; the gay couple on there are kissing and groping all the time, and the whole town (of Salem) just seems to love them. For me they are too bland and too goody-two-shoes. The gay guys on GH are more realistic. BTW, for my money, Brad is the most interesting of these characters: he’s flawed, he’s devious, but his heart’s in the right place.

    Talking about it and doing it are two different entities. Felix is the last one to the dance, after talking with Milo. I think Milo’s simple and honest approach will have an effect on Felix, and he will be thinking, “What was I thinking?”.
    But no, I don’t think that the end-game is Felix and Milo. I know that Milo was nuancing with Sonny about it not being a girl (Sonny assumed “woman”). And that Milo was worried about his father’s 1960′s ideas and ideals.
    Thinking of the sixties, I think of “West Side Story”, a fight between gangs of Caucasian vs. Puerto Rican….so there is Sabrina…
    And coming in second in my opinion is Caucasian vs. Black. That would be Epiphany.
    Either would make an epic s/l!

    Thankfully, the winner was Bachelorette#2, Epiphany!!! I don’t think I could have stomached another major Sappy production…..first we had the Ugly Betty ripoff, then the “Cinderbrina” fantasy. Having to witness a song and dance extravaganza of “Sa-bree-nah…I just met a girl named Sa-bree-nah!” would have simply been waaaaaay toooooooooooo much!!!!! : p

    I find this storyline a little pandering at times. I’m also insulted by it at times, too. What? There aren’t more than three gay men in Port Charles? Lucas is supposed to be an intelligent doctor, Felix is supposed to be an intelligent nurse, and Brad is supposed to be…?Well, he has to have some intelligence if he was able to secure a job in the hospital lab. This storyline has potential, but so far it is being played at such a high level that a lot of content is missing, making it kind of joke. I’ve had friends who were in three-way relationship for years, so it can and does happen. But it’s a bit of a shocker to see this reality hit my soap. So, I’ll watch and hope they do this justice.

    Why do you want to take the one gay storyline and turn it into a cliche for all the religious right wing bigots to point at? Can’t your gay characters, who are wonderful, just fall in love with each other one at a time? You guys are falling right into the stereotype that gay men can’t have and don’t want loving relationships. You should know better. By the way, Felix can do better than both these fools! Give him a real boyfriend! Thanks.

    I find all the pearl clutching (by straights and gays) hilarious.

    Apparently no one minds the rapes, the robberies, the murders, the deaths… but have three characters (who have all already dated each other) even contemplate jumping into bed and people are all outraged. So a three way storyline isn’t appropriate for kids- but (for example) Sonny killing AJ is? Or FauxLuke selling cocaine is?

    As a gay man who has been out for nearly 30 years and works in the LGBT community, let me tell you a big secret – three ways happen all the time (yes even in committed relationships) and there are a lot of ‘trouples” (three people in a “couple”). Look up Polyamory, please. and here’s another big secret – it’s not just the gays. It’s true.

    I don’t think Ron or ABC gives a crap if they portray the gay community true to life. They certainly don’t portray straight people that way, why do you expect the gays to be some special exception? Personally, I love that the gays on GH aren’t these weird unearthly characters who have no flaws and are practically perfect in every way (does not reflect reality and is not very interesting to watch as daytime drama).

    Kids are around murder and violence everyday…and see it…the herione storyline showed a tragic outcome in Rafes death and the dangers of drug use especially with youth…kids are being harmed by both violence and drugs everyday…they are a part of it…sex is an adult situation and not for children…they will be adults soon enough as it is…my problem is that this storyline about a threesome(which probably wont play out) is just a filler story as is the straight triangle of Scott/ Bobbi/Lucy…both storylines are pointless and adds nothing to the show…its isolated with no connections to other story which drags those others stories and stagnates the show…

    Reply

    davidevansmith replied

    But those connections need to BE built. Lucas has implications across the canvas to other characters, particularly Carly, Julian, and Sam. Those relationships are still being defined. Lucas is the most relevant because of his long history. The story hasn’t been TOLD yet, so how do you know if it WILL affect any other story if you tune out and change the channel at first mention of the plot point you don’t like? It’s not a justification that it doesn’t affect anything else if you aren’t waiting to see if it will. LOL.

    I love this story and the twist of having Milo be B-sexual actually moves us away from the three way, it was a tease to set Felix and Milo up as the safe, slow moving family friendly gay couple opposite Brad and Lucas, wild and sex-crazed gay couple. I love what GH is doing with there gay couples and I love that they have outside friends and relationships that keep them 3D and not just “gay characters”. Bravo to Ron and Frank over at GH. For a gay fan who has watched this and 6 other soaps over the last 25 years this is the best use of gay characters I have seen in the media, we usually just get one, who is in some turmoil about who they are, here we get well development ones who are as different as the real world. Love it.

    I will say Felix was the first so, I feel like the rest were brought on the show to support him, so he should be at the center of this story and it starting to all center on Lucas.

    The best gay characters are on Britains Coronation Street…if you dont get the show in your area check out youtube and check out Coronation Streets Todd, Marcus(currently left series) Sean, Sophie, and Maddie…maybe you’d like them or maybe you wont but these gay and straight characters deal with realistic everday issues and is far the best of any soap currently airing here!!!

    Amen. These characters aren’t just posterboys for “safe” asexual characters that middle America can be comfortable around. They are real characters who are not all goody-goody. They have flaws — Brad’s, um, ethically challenged. Lucas is full of himself (Who wouldn’t be when you’re that young and good looking?), Felix gets hurt too easily. They are flesh-and-blood people with friends and enemies. Thank God they aren’t saints or role models or conflicted and self-loathing. They know who they are and are tripped up only by their own insecurities and shortcomings — just like in real life. Love ‘em.

    GH is what it is , it has bad guys that shoot guns and kill people, and also a lot of humor and weird stuff …. I’m lovin it !! :)

    And there is no way daytime or network tv will allow nudity..
    IF and when their is sex, we do not see it …

    What these writers are doing, perhaps unknowingly, is to actually reinforce Society’s overview of negative stereotypical behavior patterns.

    Sadly, soaps are not what they used to be. I love them and will watch them until the day I die. However, they are becoming less and less relevant. Ron and Frank rolled in on a white horse and saved GH. Ratings are not bad at all. Katie is history. That shows people still care about their soaps. My point is, I can remember a time when if daytime had on three gay guys looking to have a threeway, it would have been national news. Sadly, its not. Soaps are not as relevant AND the shock value of your sexuality is no longer shocking. In the nineties soaps competed with OJ. 2014, its the Kardashians, Lohans, and Beibers. Its tough to grab anyones attention for any long period of time anymore. I will embrace GH no matter what is written, who stays or goes, and who is the executive producer. I will enjoy it until they bring the curtain down.

    I would like to post about my deep disappointment in the development with Felix in the 8/15 episode. From the posts I read here (and other soap opera message boards) I gather that Felix is not very popular. I like Felix but completely understand why he would be disliked by many. 1.) he’s been woefully underdeveloped and 2.) deeply attached to Sabrina who is shallow and propped-up. When introduced, Felix was fun and funny. The character was lively and joyful. The past year Felix has been written as unhappy, miserable, desperate and morose. Sadly, Friday’s episode exemplified how pathetically written Felix is. I felt that Felix was the “butt of the joke” of Milo confessing his sudden and significant crush on…Epiphany! Seriously?! In the scenes of Milo’s confession, Felix (superbly performed by Marc Anthony Samuel) vacillated from confusion, hope and despair in one scene. It was crushing. I’m glad Felix wasn’t broken by the development and hope for the return of the fun and bold Felix I loved but I am not confident in the writers to abilities.

    I felt embarrassed for Felix but also angry that the Lucas would be so callous and cruel as to invite Felix and Brad into a “threesome” if Brad was the one he wanted to be with. He knew that when making the arrangement!!! I had no problem with the proposal of a threesome but I do have a problem that Lucas is written as a cad and Brad a buffoon while Felix is left out in the cold. As underdeveloped as Felix is, he’s more developed than Lucas and Brad! I also think Marc Anthony Samuel is the superior talent of the trio (Ryan Carnes is hot as hell but not a compelling actor and Perry Shen is just not very good.) Why is a show called “General Hospital” unwilling to write quality story for nurse, Liz and Felix? If they are not on the periphery of poorly written “triangles” they are relegated to propping up Sabrina Santiago (whenever she’s onscreen.)

    Me, too! All of these people declaring they’ve stopped watching GH because of all the TALK about a 3way have no backbone. I could clearly see that it was going to be all talk, & no action, & enjoyed the resolution on Friday. Brad & Lucas actually talked about their issues in a mature manner, & Felix ended up being the picture of romanticism for ALL orientations without looking like a fool. He came out as the one to admire in the situation.

    and anyone who actually believed there would be a threesome I gotta have a laugh at them duh haa..
    It was more than obvious RC was teasing us and it was nothing more than a humorous moment..
    (( common sense fails some — )

    a threesome on daytime tv c’mon really! some actually took it seriously ahhaa! .. yah..

    I am happy to see some gay characters on GH. I find Lucas and Brad to be pretty steamy together. Honestly, that reaction was a first for me. Anyway, I hope those two get together for a while.

    As for discussion of 3-ways, OMG let’s break out the cool towels for foreheads of the near-fainting viewers. It never seemed like a real possibility that Lucas, Brad and Felix would follow through, but more like an idea that was thrown out there, then went too far even though none of them really wanted to do it. And I think that’s very realistic.

    As far as the horror of children hearing the phrase 3-way, if they know what that means, perhaps the focus on daytime tv is misdirected.

    Some of my gay friends are super-adventurous anything goes kind of guys and some would probably have to be tipsy to do it with the lights on. Just like my straight friends. So I’m not seeing any stereotypes there. Now when Felix and Brad were first introduced and acting smarmy and unprofessional, sexually harassing patients, that was offensive.
