This year brought a NuJordan and a NuTrina ...many temp recasts, some old faces and places (Ireland). For the most part I really enjoyed GH this year. Could the scenes as a whole been longer? Yes. Editing and continuity tighter? For sure but all and all pretty damn good. Vets, Ice Princess... and all the rest. Kristina Wagner is back on contract!! Emma Samms visited! Old School GH is back! :clapping:
HUGE Thank you to Dave and Sonya who keep this blog going even when I'm down and out. Thank you to all the faithful readers and people who comment!!
Thank you to the writers, cast, crew and everyone at GH!! Here's to a great 2023
Best Blog : General Hospital Wub TubReplyDelete

Thank you for Most Overused Word: Wiley. My thought for years.ReplyDelete

My added categories:ReplyDelete
Best Couple: Brooklynn and Chase

Best On Screen Chemistry: Maura West and Marcus Coloma (Ava and Nikolas)
Worst On Screen Chemistry: Chad Duell & Katelyn MacMullen (Michael and Willow)
Most Disgusting Scene: Nikolas and Esme Sex (which somehow "outranked" Sam & Ric's and Dillon & Lulu's sex scenes, as Nikolas and Esme NEARLY made me puke!)
Most unnecessary addition: Cody

Most underutilized Actress: Kelly Thiebald
Most overly complicated storyline: Anna investigating Victor
Best Storyline: Hook Killer

Most Disappointing Storyline: Liz and her memories
Forgotten GH Character: Sam (anyone else surprised that Kelly Monaco hasn't left the show?)
Forgotten Storyline of the Year: Trina is Curtis's daughter
Biggest Eye Roller of the year: Peter's underwhelming "death". Healthy man falls 5 feet and "dies". And Anna goes and checks on him off-screen. Yep, he isn't dead.
These are SOO good too!Delete
perfect list! mw & mc's Nava is fire, brook/chase have tons of charm, Dom's given nothing yet Dom's 100% committed to every screen moment (love him!); Sam missing from Nik & Cassadine stories drives me crazy, and I thought Trina already knew she was Curtis daughter and literally don't give a fig anymore about itDelete
I think GH WAS better this year because of the vets who were finally used! (More Diane please..)ReplyDelete
The annoying and drawn-out storylines like Liz, Willow, Michael, Drew, Carly, etc. are kinda like the soaky cole slaw that comes with an amazing dinner - the dinner is so good, I can accept the coleslaw......
having said that, though, we gotta move some of these stories along --- SURELY it's not during FEBRUARY sweeps when the audience finds out who is the hook person.....
Agree with almost all of these. I'd swap the Ice Princess story with Everything Esme. The Ice Princess story was told in bits and chunks with no momentum. Avery Kristen Pohl is underrated and her character drove story for the first half of the year. The tower story has been a bit of a miss mostly because it hamstrings the character from doing what she does best and that is mixing it up with everyone else.ReplyDelete
Had to laugh at the most overused word: Wiley. Long time GH viewers will remember "Steven Lars" was uttered practically every 5 minutes in the late 70s.
I would add most ruined character: Gladys. She was an absolute annoying hoot and pain in the ass when first introduced...and then suddenly she got "glamorized" and she's even on good terms with Sonny, who initially couldn't stomach to be in the same room with her.
Most missed character: Yes, the sudden loss of Phyllis is kind of maddening...but I would add two others - Molly and Jackie Templeton. The latter won't be a popular choice. Kim Delaney was brought on with such fanfare and then the story went nowhere. There was a missed opportunity for Jackie to cross paths with Holly - there was no love lost between those two.
Worst returning character and story: Jeff Webber and the whole Reiko story. After all these years longtime viewers have waited to see this character again and wonder why he'd been missing and had no contact with his daughter, Liz...this was the best they could do???
Most wasted character: Laura. The show did such a great job last year with the story centered around her connection with Cyrus. But she's too much in a supporting role this year and she deserves to be front and center driving a story. I hope the show will rectify this as we head into the 60th anniversary.
Andre Maddox gets best hair award! Given by General Hospital Snark...a funny FB page that some of you would love, some would not.ReplyDelete
