    General Hospital has the most vivid sensational characters, of all the soaps!!
    It is a spellbinding on the edge soap yet has fun humorous stuff injected in for balance!!
    I know General Hospital will take it all the way for our Halloween good time!!

    Can hardly wait for Roger Howarth/Franco’s Halloween wedding!!
    It’s gonna rock!!!

    (when the soaps are not taken overly serious as if they are real and personal, they can be fun, really fun!! …
    Especially General Hospital, always a good time on the cliffs edge dangling suspense!! !!!

    I completely agree! Will never understand the criticism that GH is not “realistic” enough. Hello? It’s a tv show! Not even “reality” shows are realistic. They are scripted. Pro wrestling – scripted. And, when have soaps ever been “realistic?” I guess those critics only want dour, depressing sagas where everyone is drinking, having affairs & popping prescription drugs to deal with it all. I’d MUCH rather watch GH’s twisted, black humor any day! When you have a mobster like Sonny who has ruled the town, it makes sense to do GET SHORTY eventually.

    Lately, we are seeing the real Roger Howarth; playing Franco far more delicious than he has since GH changed his character over from Todd. Looking forward to his Halloween surprise for Carly who deserves everything that is coming to her!

    Actually, ces…I’ve been saying this for a while not..but we’re seeing the reall “Todd.” His personality is really emerging very close to Todd’s and I’m thinking this is the way Ron gets away with keeping Roger in his beloved role while staying within the legal boundaries. Either way I agree. Roger is baaaaaaaack!

    rebecca1 replied

    should read a while “now”…and real (not reall)

    Ces replied

    You’re right Rebecca. I saw “Todd” in those scenes with Heather on Friday, not Franco. GH knows that turning Roger into Franco was dumb but their hands were tied if they wanted to keep Roger on the show. It sucks, because Todd & Carly used to have chemistry and then poof, PP came in and they lost it along the way. I’m really hoping Franco & Nina hook up together after all this is said & done. Love the stuff Roger is doing now ;)
    Super tired of Carly needing to protect Michael all the time — it’s like “Cut the apron strings already!”

    su0000, I think something is going on with Franco off-screen. 1st I thought there were 2 of him (hear me out..lol), but now I wonder if he has a split personality..

    Thursday when Franco & Michael were in the conferences room at GH his hair was combed down straight and dry (no product). He said he had an appointment & left. A bit later he shows up at Ferncliff to see mom. He had the same clothes on, added a jacket and some kind of hair oil. His hair was slicked back like John Travolta in Grease. Heather said “What did you do to your hair? I don’t like it” & he replied it was a new look. After he left there he went to Metro Court to see Carly. It’s still the same day, same clothes. He walks in with yet ANOTHER hairstyle. He had the same clothes on. but now his hair looks shorter, and it was dry, but shiny like it has product on it. The bangs looked different & it even looked like he had highlights.

    So either GH has the worst editors ever (I forgot what the actual people who are in charge of the editing and continuity) or something else is going on with that greased back hair. Hmm??

    As a tribute to the Godfather…i want Sonny to find a horse’s head in his bed…or Carlys…or Carly finds Sonnys in hers…works both ways for me…lol

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    To honor Michelles big performance: Attack Of The 50ft Nina on the Halloween episode! Nina is touched by an alien on a long dark deserted road…within days she grows into a giant and goes on a rampage searching for Silas and Sam who briefly reunited and are having drinks at Ryans Bar in New York…Nina pulls off the roof and a beam falls on Sam crushing her to death! Nina reaches down and picks up Silas and carries him off only both are electricuited to death when giant Nina attempts to cross electrical lines…of course its just a fantasy episode and part of a dream Silas is having…lol

    I like the a Sonny’s head part, jimh…LOL

    dmr replied

    I remember “Play Misty for Me-” a great movie! It used to be shown on television a lot when I was younger! I am really enjoying Nina Clay. Love Nina’s interactions with her mother and Rosalie. She’s hurt, sensitive, and vulnerable mixed with crazy, deceitful, and diabolical. With all of the talk about how close she was to her father-I am wondering if she was abused by him-which caused her to go crazy. It sounds like Franco will be showing quite the video at his wedding to Carly-much like what happened on Days at Brady and Kristen’s wedding. I just hope that Michael gets a new couch! HA!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Did you have to remind me about the couch…lol…i bet if they took it out to burn it, the Sonny/Carly fumes would spread all over PC causing instant death to whom ever inhales it…lol…PMFM is one of my favorite thrillers of all time!!!

    dmr replied

    I know jimh-the couch-haha! Perhaps this storyline will make Michael a tad bit interesting. I have always been a fan of Sonny’s, but not lately-and Shawn as his “enforcer” is ridiculous. Waste of air-time-Shawn trying to pin Franco’s near-death on Maxie, etc.-when you know that was never going to happen. Sonny repeating the same lines about how Carly is making a mistake, how she doesn’t love Franco, how she belongs with Sonny, etc., etc.-just plain dumb and boring. I’ve lost count at how many women Sonny has said belonged with him. Anyhoo, I do like Franco-just not in this storyline. I enjoy his friendship with Nina and I think his scenes with Heather are funny. Roger Howarth is very talented and I think his talents could be put to better use-rather than rehashing the brain tumor “made him do it,” the video that “proved” that the brain tumor made him do it, etc. Anyhoo, I’m getting off track! Halloween should be fun in PC!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I agree with everything youve said about Sonny, Shawn, Franco, Nina, Heather, and Micheal…and i look forward to the Halloween episode…sounds like its going to be good!!!

    The last scene with Franco and Heather is an absolutely lip-smacking, delicious and frightening satirical feast. I’m sure they both had a lot of fun C U T T I N G it !!!!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Franco with Heather or Franco with Nina…Franco works best with these two characters and vice versa…imo…GH still has some flaws but lately the cast seems somewhat better balanced in recent weeks and the storylines are improving lately that now if my overgrown toenails need a trim they’ll just have to wait for the weekend…lol

    I agree; Franco’s best scenes and most enjoyable scenes are with his mother, Heather and his friend, Nina.

    Faison dressing up as Beetlejuice last year was the best. The great Anders Hove took the ball and ran with it. I always love seeing what costumes they come up with for the various characters. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us this year.

    Dan, you just brought those images to life…still laughing…Faison as Beetlejuice was so a propos…so a la Faison…LOL.

    That was very funny-when he opened the door and Lesley Webber fainted. I love Faison and Dr. O’s scenes together, too.

    And “Dr. O.” trussed-up in that dirndl as a frisky fraulein really completed the picture!

    I was glad to see Heather; I want Franco and Heather to confront Sonny and Shawn. I hope Franco becomes more combatant with Sonny. Just because he ‘s a mobster, the writers like to make other characters afraid of him. That’s how they wrote A. J.’s character.

    Well, it’s quite obvious Franco’s from today’s episode. wedding gift to his bride will be a video of herself and a Sonny in bed…brought to us in technicolor …Boo, surprise, y’ll.

    Sounds a little like Days when they did the Kristen/Eric video at Kristen and Bradys wedding…

    You’re right…crossed my mind too. I think the preview ,today, tried to throw us off, though. Didn’t Franco say to Carly that he knew what was going on between her and Sonny? Of course, it’ll be something completely different from what we’re thinking.
