It’s summer time, and for the men of General Hospital that means it’s time to go … shirtless!

And in this new promo from ABC, looks like things will heat up from the male GH cast line-up including: Ryan Paevey (Nathan), Ryan Carnes (Lucas), William deVry, (Julian), Dominic Zamprogna (Dante), Sean Blakemore (Shawn), Chad Duell (Michael), Bryan Craig (Morgan), Maurice Benard (Sonny), Michael Easton (Silas), Roger Howarth (Franco), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas), and Jason Thompson (Patrick)!

So we throw the question to the GH viewing audience, who makes your temperature rise of the guys and the characters in Port Charles?  Watch the promo after the jump and then weigh-in!

    Silas. And he would have looked much better without Sam in that scene. Dante and Nathan also look great.

    It’s hard to believe there are so many gorgeous people on GH. Nathan, Silas, Patrick are my favorites but I love them all. Always something to look forward to 5 days a week!!

    How about hot storylines that sizzle instead of fizzle?

    Agreed. I think this is the kind of promo you do when your advertising people look at the stories you’re telling and realize there’s nothing in them to promote. . . .

    I think so too…

    JR replied

    AGREED. So sad that is all they think GH has to offer but in fact, it’s true. The soap has become a cliche of itself.

    GH50 replied

    GH has really turned into pure schlock. You can have attractive people and shirtless guys, but when that becomes your selling point it speaks volumes about the quality of your product and what you feel you have to do to get attention.

    I continue to watch GH and find some entertaining moments but if i do miss an episode i dont bother to watch it later on demand like i used to…GH stagnates…it just repeats itself and hardly moves forward-Lucas, Brad and Felix switch beds every other week and Sonny and Julian make threats to each other and have mob wars every few months but nothing really happens except someone gets shot and their up and about by the following week, Scott, Lucy and Bobbi(the latter rarely shown with her family) are hardly ever shown enough for me to even care about them and their daytimes worse love triangle ever!…Rafe develops an edge and starts to become interesting but is killed off which i feel was a mistake…i could go on but im positive you know what i mean…ive gotten spoiled by Britians Coronation Street…it has a big cast and few story mistakes and disappointments but that is easily overlooked by its character driven stories that move…character who are poor to working middle class…who look like everyday people with real flaws dealing with realistic everyday problems we can all relate to and still be entertaining escapism!!!

    GH50 replied

    I’ve only watched about three episodes in the last two weeks and just have no desire to catch up. Tuned in today and all the Nina stuff was just such a waste of time. MS just acting nutty in a way that is getting more and more difficult to watch and listening to her just recap everything to this point that had already been shown on screen in detail was also a waste. The dialogue was so forced and unnatural.

    I just don’t know how GH gets better unless some new writers and producers are added to supervise, streamline and come up with some better ideas. We are far enough into this regime to see that they just can’t handle this size cast and are not able to integrate the stories and characters to give us the type of balance and continuity that other’s have and that we are used to.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    If i read correctly the current cast has over 50 contract and recurring characters…far too many…some disapear for so long i forget they are still part of the show and no longer care about them…i say to balance the show and give it continuity they need to cut the cast by at least a dozen characters…also they need to bring the Qs more front and center…if Wally Kurth stays i say pair Ned with Olivia(im not a fan of hers but…) and make them the next Alan and Monica and make Tracy and Monica the next Edward and Lila…so far the ones id dump are Nina, Rosalee, Kiki, Levi, Brad, Felix, Sabrina, Franco, T.J.,…just to name a few and im still debating on others and if they should go or stay…Rafe shouldve stayed and paired with Molly…they shouldve went on a Luke and Laura type adventure as they try to learn who is responsible for bringing the heroin to PC…jmo!!!

    harry replied

    I cannot really add to what Jim and GH50 say except Nina wasn’t at all what I expected. The day AJ died, we had to watch Silas cry and wax poetic about his sweet Nina. He’d tell tales of sweet and innocent Nina describing how angelic she looked in her private school uniform complete with knee socks and saddle shoes. I was picturing some sweet dimpled girl ( a Jenny Gardener prototype) and instead we get Endora, Samantha Stephens mother, siwrling around using her wheelchair like a broom. I fully expect to hear Nina call Silas “Derwood.”
    Dr. Bombay, please come right away.

    Shay replied

    Amen, Harry….There truly was a huge disconnect between the preconceived notion of a kind, gentle and ethereal (Nina) creature that we were repeatedly given to expect and the actual mega whacked-out, witch-on-wheels wild woman version that burst onto the scene. That is one of the main problems with this bomb of a character….the other is that a Phyll-ina hybrid was not what most of us desired either. Overall, the verdict appears to be just another epic fail courtesy of Cartini…..their track record with newbies is atrocious!!!!

    harry replied

    It always cracks me up when someone says,”Speak for yourself” when the person they are addressing never used words like we or us.
    Ans Shay? I am also growing wearing of seeing the great abyss that is Alexis’s cleavage. I think they should put Geraldo Rivera on the case–maybe Al Capone is hiding in there.

    Shay replied

    And while they are at it, could someone please spring for a few modest tops for Alexis? I’m surprised she doesn’t catch a chest cold what with her constant cleavage flashing cries for attention.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    @Harry….Thank you once again! And on that subject, it would be interesting to know exactly WHO does enjoy that pathetic non-stop peep show that Alexis feels compelled to offer up each time she “graces” our tv screens. Are there that many immature pre-teen boys or dirty old men that actually receive a thrill from her middle-aged flashes of immodesty? Anyone???? P.S. Al Capone could do so much better! Maybe Lord Lucan?

    Julian, Nikolas, and Sonny. Love Alexis and Julian. I like Nik best with Britt. Sonny-has heat with most women! Please, not a Michael, Kiki, Morgan “love” triangle. Ugh. No chemistry. No heat. No spark. I fast forward during Kiki’s scenes.

    They overdo the shirtless. Too much of it ruins the appeal for me. Plus any guy that spends that much time in a gym to look they way they look is just a little too into himself for my tastes. I like guys who comes by abs more naturally…with a little mystery…who looks good in a tee shirt to an open collared jacket. Goodness, I can’t believe I just said all that.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    I agree with you, Rose! The shirtless stuff is TOTALLY overdone. This girl goes crazy for a “sharp-dressed man!”

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Me thinks Ron C. writes these shirtless scenes to fullfill his own fantasies…maybe if he had a dream about me shirtless that nightmare might just put an end to it…lol

    Shay replied

    @jimh…..The entire show now appears to be created for Ron C.’s wish fulfillment and amusement. That’s the problem….it would seem that the millions of viewers and their stated desires and interests are being totally left out of the equation.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    You’re right Shay…Ron writes for himself and not the fans…i loved his outstanding work in his final year at OLTL…and i did like him at GH in the beginning but now my feelings are mixed…he has good ideas and the ratings are still up…that the good part but what ends up on screen looks like it was heavily edited…like some movies ive seen where they cut out too much that the movie doesnt make too much sense…you know what im saying…sorry my writing skills arent there…i used to write a lot better years ago but as i explained to some before continued medical problems intefer and i often do not get my thoughts written as well as i think them…its why i forget and add things later…but i still have a sense of humor…lol

    Shay replied

    @jimh…..I also enjoyed some of Ron’s outre’ touches at the beginning of his tenure at GH…there were some magnificently creative twists and flourishes that honored and respected the show’s rich history. But that was then, and this is now….it currently seems as if the Port Charles canvas has become nothing more than his personal chess board….it is no longer fun or logical, just one predictable move after another! There is no continuity, character development or gripping stories, just the same old, same old. I am holding out that the Cassadine/Jason/Robin arc may bring back the excitement, but I am not holding my breath. In the meantime, it is one mediocre moment after another with such subpar players as Nina, Gross-alie, Levi, Mickey D., Jordan, Felix, and the kiddie troupe. I’m completely bored! As for your contributions to this website, they are always lively and imaginative, and your memory seems just fine! You have made numerous references that have caused me to do a search, the latest being “Strange Paradise!” I had never heard of that show, so it was quite an education reading up on it. Just keep on doing your thing, jimh!!!!! P.S. I watched OLTL years ago, and as such viewed the final few ABC episodes that aired for nostalgia’s sake. Quite frankly, I was appalled at what I witnessed….the destruction of the venerable Buchanan clan was such a precipitous fall from when Asa was the JR of the North and his family ruled like royalty….in the end they were behaving like the most common of the common. Other than the Todd and Blair tryst, nothing even seemed very soapy to me….

    Most of them are very hot…wouldn’t turn any away if we were just basing it on looks.

    Using character’s names:

    Nathan is stunning.

    Silas (always John for me) is my type. He was looking way too skinny and drawn his first months on GH…he looks to me like he’s gained some weight back and I think he looks great. Like that lean, sinewy look.

    Lucas, Dante, Patrick, Morgan…all great looking guys.

    And then there’s Scott. LOL. I like him. Though he’s gained weight…I think he’s a nice-looking guy…

    None of them…..seriously. Although I like Roger and Michael as actors just fine, I really don’t think that any of the men on GH’s current roster compare to the truly handsome devils that populated the soap operas of the ’80′s and ’90′s….it was just a bumper crop of immense male gorgeousness back then. Too many to mention, but Preacher Emerson (Charles Flohe/Grant) was a particular favorite!!!!! If anyone else agrees, let’s start naming names and comparing notes!!!!!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Preacher and Jody(Lori M.) were a favorite couple of mind on Edge Of Night…so were Logan and Winter(Lori C.), Mike and Nancy, Raven and Sky, Miles and Nicole, and Grand matriarch Geraldine with whoever she was paired with or by herself…loved Edge Of Night!!!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    forgot April and Draper, Steve and Debra, loved them all!!!

    Shay replied

    Oh yes, jimh….I enjoyed the dashing Larkin Malloy as Sky Whitney, too, but Preacher was the one that really caught my fancy. I actually began watching “Edge” right before he arrived on the scene, and it was such a strange coincidence, because Mr. Emerson was a dead ringer—-not just physically, but right down to the expressions and mannerisms—-for a loved and lost beau who had recently moved away with his family, and it was all I could do to wait to race home after school each day to see CF on my tv screen…and weep! Oh well, there are worse ways to mend a heartbreak!!!! P.S. Also loved the late Elaine Stritch as the hilarious Mrs. DeGroot….she was a laugh riot.

    And I wish the men would stop waxing their chests. Men are supposed to have a little hair on their chest.
    I swear, Alexis has more hair on her chest than Julian does.
