Sunday Surgery: Sliding Doors




I wish I had something to report. ANYTHING!! Like even an update on something small but alas, that's a big NOPE. 

We thought taping would being this week for the show and it may still. I haven't seen anything from any actors about going back and the powers that be have been quiet. I would think if they were going back, there would be some grand-band announcements going on. 



This means...what? Not sure. There will be more reruns of near-term shows going on so that's no fun. I will never understand why they don't crack open the vault for old shows. REMEMBER HOW POPULAR THE LUKE AND LAURA ON THE RUN time was?? I mean, people would flock to relive that. Youngsters would be dragged into the fray with their moms or grams yelling; NOW THERE'S A SOAP! 

Even the Laura and Scotty love story was great. Laura also murdered someone--SHOW IT! Show Alan bringing the roof down on Rick! OR... Duke and Anna days. Asian Quarter. ANYTHING! People would love to relive the olden days an even newbies might tune in to see GH in it's glory. SPEND THE MONEY!! Now would be a great time to celebrate the shows past. 



Here are some ideas for a week's worth of shows: 

Robin and Stone's last days 
Felicia and Frisco meet
End of the Ice Princess saga
Laura comes back after being on Cassadine Island 
Anna tells Robert about Robin 
Brownstone/Earthquake 
Alan/Monica/Leslie/Rick triangle 
Lucy marries Alan 
Laura kills David 
The Ward Family 
1993 Laura/Luke/Lucky Return 
Luke's Club Clips (with the acts that were on) 
If you have to have Sonny--do the click boom with Lily 
The invention of Pic-a-Lila and Qs living at Kelly's. 
Grant Putnam --Satan the Dog 
CASEY THE ALIEN! OMG.. too fun! 

I CAN GO ON AND ON! what would you like to see?? During these times, actors would come on to set the scene and talk about their memories. But, who am I?? I know it costs money but dang, you could really get the buzz going. 




Here's hoping you and yours are still healthy, your state is slowly reopening and things feel a tad more "normal"??  Our cases are still going down but they closed bars that don't sell food because of some fools in NYC that pack them and spill onto the streets. Doesn't help the craft breweries up here!!

  1. The Young and the restless is going to show the pilot tomorrow!!!! I can't wait! :) What do we GH fans get? Bupkis!! :( You have a great list there Karen! They should show them!!!! Does anybody remember in the 80's right before soaps came on, there was a guy who was asking trivia questions about soaps? Like for GH and OLTL and AMC? That was so much fun!!!! Oh why did they stop it!? :( I remember being at my best friend's house and guessing the trivia question!!

  2. I'd like to see any of those choices. From the beginning I thought they could use this time to show the stories that would draw in new viewers and delight the rest of us. All the jumping around was a big turn off. Not a soap but being an avid Jeopardy! watcher they have opened their vault and will show the earliest shows. They want to keep us interested.
    I am happy that at least our SS is still happening...thank you karen. And thanks sonya for bringing up the old memories.
    It doesn't look good in CA. I saw a video of 2 guys trying to hand out free masks in Huntington Beach and they were almost assaulted. Not one person was wearing one. We will have to learn to live with this virus. Or die from it. Sad.
    I hope everyone is safe and can stay cool in this dreadful heat.

      Oh you're welcome! :) I wasn't really sure if anybody was really that interested.

  5. I would add the Maxie/BJ story and when Brenda and Sonny met...so many good story lines they could show, I don't understand why they don't when Y&R is going back to the first episodes.

  6. I think they aren't playing old shows so people won't remember how good the show was and how bad it is now. I'm watching old storylines on YouTube, stone and robin, somny and brenda, liz and lucky, bj heart. I forgot how good the show could really be!

  7. Well here is an update about GH.

    https://www.generalhospitalblog.com/2020/07/19/general-hospital-news-inside-source-shoots-down-hope-for-tomorrows-film-production-restart/

    "The roller coaster continues as the latest General Hospital spoilers and news have just revealed from an inside source that the July 20th restart date is no longer valid.

    In a reply to a GH fan on Twitter, William DeVry (Julian Jerome) revealed the office at Prospect Studios may open tomorrow, July 20th, however there will not be any shooting taking place as previously reported. This news has come after many reports which have been contradictory to each announcement before it. It’s a sensitive situation since COVID-19 has been unpredictable with random spikes in cases, to then slow down, and back again, and so on. Erring on the side of caution, Government officials have decided now is not the right time to restart film production.

    GH fans and actors alike are becoming restless and anxious to get back to the grind and enjoying new episodes of General Hospital."

    Well good to hear it. I just want people safe!!

    1. Thanks for the update Sonya! Miss your recaps but I totally understand why. I haven't watched GH in a week now. :(

      Karen, thanks for the SS, always welcome and always a good read!

  8. "Julie H says, Thanks for the update Sonya!"

    You're welcome!!! :)

    "Miss your recaps but I totally understand why. I haven't watched GH in a week now. :("

    You mean the episodes from April and May they are showing? Yeah I won't.. I haven't watched GH in awhile either, except the first scene everyday to see if they are really showing what they said they are going to show. I have been putting up past episodes from the 70's and 80's on the HAPPY Birthday To Haley Pullos post. :)

    1. Yes, April and May. It's still on my dvr and I do the same thing you do...check the first scenes. Great minds and all! :)

      I'll have to check out the 70's posts. I started watching in the fall of 1979, my first year of college. Instead of studying! Lol!
