GH In The News: The PC Press Club

I think he needs her as a female body to throw at someone - beyond that, no.

Okay, I know you said that Frank shouldn't be cut some slack but he did try to get rid of motherfucker de Vry! He tried!

the Dothraki the Julexis army the fans blocked him!

He did! Over and over again. At this point de Vry's many survivals just make me laugh. I can't believe he's still around. That's just good fun at this point though. That crazy fool feels like an old friend compared to the others.

If Frank gave a shit about keeping DZ he would've had real story years ago. He's been one of Frank and Ron's clueless male appendages who is not an outside star since 2012. FV wanted him to say he was there, maybe, but beyond that he could care less.

It would be more accurate to say he couldn't care less; because if he cared less, that means he cares a little, and like you stated, he doesn't give any fucks about anyone except his favorites. Hence, couldn't care less. 😉

I'm going to miss DZ.  He was horribly underutilized but was one of those actors who was able to spin complete crap into something resembling gold. I honestly don't understand these writers.  MB clearly checked out over a decade ago.  He plays every scene EXACTLY the same way and it isn't good but the whole show seems to be centered around him.  Then you have real talent on the show.  DT, BM, DZ, are all actors who have talent and range.  They can play a wonderful husband then turn around and be a badass.  They can convey emotion without ever saying a word.  So what's the solution?  Bury them in the background or have them as a light support character. You get some great legacy characters like Kevin, Laura, Anna, Mac, and Robert and the solution is to either completely change and butcher the character (that would be Anna) or refuse to use them. Instead, we double down on one character who mumbles and stutters or throws things for each line. And then we really push the character who stares and blinks a lot.  Or focus on a girl who rolls her eyes and speaks sarcastically.  Sonny, Jason, and Carly would be fine on this show, but they need to have them be the support and move the support characters to the forefront.  It's all so backwards.

I'm gonna quote @jsbt

 

And that was from before the show lost JE and GF.

And based on the mention of Morgan, before they even lost BC.

Not that that really matters, I'm just saying. ;)

tbh I think Dante and Maxie would be gross and bizarre. I couldn't get down with that.

 

Same. I know there are "guy falls for his girl's best friend" stories all the time in soaps (see: Johnny & Maxie, at the expense of Lulu), but this would feel like straight up incest* to me, for real. They've always felt like brother and sister to me. *shrug* 

*And not in the fun, Cassadine sense, either. ;)

LOL. I thought he was more Michael's age, in his mid-20s.

 Or maybe she's decided she has enough money so fuck it.

This is what I think. I hope so. I have no love for KMo, but anytime people ask where would she go I think "she doesn't have to go anywhere! To her scrooge mcduck tower to swim in her money!"

She could always do another burlesque show in Vegas. Or make the soap con rounds.

Doesn't she have a pretty solid fan base? I thought that was one of the reasons she was cast as Lulu in the first place. Regardless, the writing for her Lulu has been mediocre at best, and with DZ leaving, it's only going to nosedive further. If they don't recast Dante, write the family off. Lulu is pretty pointless as it is; without Dante, she has no reason to be around.

 "When I gave birth on the show, I literally cried," she confessed. "It felt like the end of something that had been such a beautiful experience. For nine months I'd walked around with a fake baby belly, so it felt real!"

Alrighty then.

If BM really does leave, I hope Kemo does follow him out.   I read an article about soap stars net worths a while ago, and she was up there.  I personally don't think her heart is in it anymore.  It comes across as if she doesn't want to be in an onscreen love affair with Steve, and I don't like that.  People will say, oh she should do her job that's what she gets paid for.  But these days, I don't go with that.  God only knows what goes on behind the scenes that I don't know about.  If she doesn't want the pairing, and BM leaves, she has that fu money so good for her.  I really don't know if this is all because of her and BM's personal relationship, and I don't even know what that relationship is, but I have seen them do long internet questions from fans things, and those two are very very tight.  Whatever the particulars, they adore each other, friendship or more, who knows or cares.  But she is not there anymore.  She doesn't want the Jasam pairing.

This is so sweet! A fan on Twitter shared a newspaper clipping about Frisco & Felicia's wedding in 1986--it looks like a real wedding announcement! And Kristina shared it, too!

As foolish as I think it was for FV to backburner Dante I do appreciate that if it weren't for him Dante wouldn't have interacted with vets that I wanted to see him with, like Laura and Robert and especially Anna.

I agree that Dante's material dried up years ago, but I'm not going to lament what should have been or wish for more. DZ had a great nine-year run. I find it hard to imagine another actor as this character he brought to life. When DZ had story, he rocked it. When he was just supporting, he was often the best thing in the scene. I loved his relationships with Aaron Refvem (the best of the Morgans), with both of the "grown" Michaels, with Lisa LoCicero's Olivia, with JMB's Lulu, with many others. He made me interested in a new retcon character who was plopped into Sonny's vortex of suck, and I liked Sonny no more in 2009 than I like him in 2018...maybe even less. But I even enjoyed many of Dante's scenes with Sonny. When he was "every-day Dante," I never complained. I would have needed every drug Nurse Mary Pat is forcing on Carly if they had worked some lesser actors as heavily as they worked him that one year.  

I hope his memories of working on General Hospital are mostly happy ones. If the show keeps chugging on and he ever wants to return, I'd happily welcome him back, but I really hope he lands something else that makes GH look like a long prelude. I see him as better for drama than comedy. It's a tough business, yes, but there's so much more TV out there now than there used to be: prestigious dramas on networks like FX and AMC, original programming from Netflix, etc. So I hope fortune smiles on him. Whatever happens, I thank him for doing such a great job with Dante.

Unless Kim McCullough comes back and says she is down for Jason/Robin and Steve agrees, the only thing that could break Jason and Sam is one of those two exiting again.

I honestly think Jason should end up alone. The writers are never going to allow him to love a woman or his own kids over Sonny/Carly/Michael, especially under SBu. So what's the point, really? And as has been evidenced by his return, Jason doesn't need a love interest, apparently a lot of people like that his character only literally kisses the asses of Sonny and Carly. They don't even need to see Jason actually kiss or long for a companion in a romantic way. How anti-soap, but here we are. 20 years later.

I also think the time to revisit Jason and Robin has passed by and that's partly unfortunate and a waste but also a blessing because I never needed to see Jason put Carly over Robin x 2. I always felt bad for Sam and Liz fans in that regard.

Yeah, Robin has lived a fulled life after her romantic relationship ended with Jason. She became a fabulous, famed doctor, fell in love with someone that she doesn't compare Jason to, and two beautiful children. Jason will always have a special place in her her heat as did Stone, but she is not the same young girl anymore.

Probably unfair of me but MB liking tweets about how DZ should have gotten more kind of makes me roll my eyes. Call me crazy but I just have a feeling he wasn't suggesting to Frank before this that Dante should get more story. At best it was probably like, "hey write more scenes for DZ and me." (Not that MB is obliged to request for more story for anyone . . . maybe MB is down on the writing in general right now.)
