    This show has been a hot mess lately but man Kristin Storms and Michelle Stafford have been killing it. It’s a shame they couldn’t get Donna Mills in also. The funeral was perfectly done.

    Nobody has posted since Feb. 12th! I watched a bit this past week and while I enjoyed much of the acting I didn’t care for the stories they were enacting. Kirsten Storms has been doing career best work lately and I also really enjoy the actor who plays Peter, the problem is the storytelling, the writing simply isn’t there and they have too many characters in strange stories that just don’t work for them. I know others have pariased Max Gail’s Mike but I miss Ron Hale in the role too much; I also prefer the Alzheimer’s story on Y&R. I wish they would do a major rehaul of this show, eliminate the mobsters and bring it back to the hospital…

    This show has been dragging us through some really snoozy stories when it’s not making its characters absolutely brainless.  There’s no real romance on the front burner, no stories that feel like they have any real consequences, nothing. The acting elevates the material here and there but that’s about it.

    Did I read correctly that Susan Lucci will be reprising her role as Erica Kane on GH?

    Is the Patty McCormack who is portraying Monica during Leslie Charleson’s injury related absence the same actress who played Rhoda in The Bad Seed as a child? She also replaced Kathryn Hays as Kim way back in 1975-76 briefly…

    GH is such a mess right now!

    What would Erica Kane do in Port Charles? They have mentioned Llanview and Erica Kane the last few episodes so I’m guessing we can expect more crossovers. Nora’s crossover was pretty useless especially since there are no shortage of lawyers already in PC (Alexis, Diane, Ric, Scott) and it was completely out of character for Nora to be defending psychos and creeps like Valentin Cassadine and Olivia Jerome. Hopefully future crossovers will be more fun and in character.

    What’s more, how the hell would they be able to afford her?

    Apparently it’s true – Susan Lucci will be reprising Erica Kane for a short stint on GH.

    Freeman, where are you seeing that confirmed? It hasn’t been posted as anything more than a rumor though it gained traction after Maxie referenced her in a Crimson call on Monday.

    A visit from Erica Kane or other ABC alumni characters might make me tune in. Sounds like fun!

    I wish it was Dorian (Robin Strasser) but o.k.,only can’t Brooke (Julia Barr) come along for the visit? (;

    Although I no longer watch GH on a daily basis, I tuned in for a few days to watch the Nurse’s Ball. And I have to say, it was the best one in years.

    The entertainment was outstanding. The opening number was excellent, with a shout-out to Epiphany! Mike and Sonny’s duet was both charming and touching. Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me” was excellent. And I also enjoyed the songs I did not know, such as the ones performed by Valentin and Oscar and Joss. The closing number by the nurses was great too.

    As I watched the opening number, it ran through my head that it was like the dance of the recurring characters, a fact that I find rather unfortunate. But great entertainment nevertheless.

    I did not care much for the stories playing out between musical numbers, but I was impressed with the veracity of Kirsten Storms’s performance during Maxie’s childbirth scenes.

    And of course always great to enjoy Lucy Coe as emcee!

    I have been having a hard time getting through whole episodes of GH lately ): I enjoy Maxie and Peter but not much else.

    Elizabeth Hendrickson debuted as the new DA prosecuting Carly. She was fine but the role seems pretty useless. They could have had Scott or Ric as the DA and have Hendrickson play Liz’s sister Dr. Sarah Webber who could potentially be paired with Griffin, Finn, Chase, Maddox, Michael or Drew.

    I’m excited to see where this new Alexis story could go. It’s been a long time since Alexis has been involved in a Cassadine story in any meaningful way. Valentin hinting that he knows even more secrets about her childhood than the many, many ones she’s already blocked out sounds intriguing.

    I couldn’t care less about Sonny, Jason & Carly trying to prove her innocence. And they’re still not writing Nelle correctly. They’ve finally decided to make her a full-on bad girl but there’s absolutely nothing fun about her schemes. That character should be love to hate and someone the audience wants to see more and more. She’s barely aired since she was admitted to the hospital and I’d be perfectly fine never seeing her again. They can just never mention her again and pretend she never existed and I wouldn’t mind at all.

    I hate that they’re writing James DePaiva as a creep but Hayley Erin’s been solid in the story. And she looked stunning at the Nurses’ Ball.

    Wes Ramsey and James Patrick Stuart need to not share scenes together anymore. They bring out the absolute worst in each other’s acting.

    Michelle Stafford’s quietly been killing it all year. I’d love to see her earn her first Emmy nomination for playing Nina this year.

    It was nice to see Kathleen Gati again. We’ll be getting Anna/Obrecht scenes today which are always fun.

    Anna Devane hasn’t been written as a badass since Ron Carlivati left and I’m gonna need that to change. I’m so sick of her being written as a weepy victim. I need her to get her backbone back.

    Some things I’m enjoying:

    Alexis finally trying to get her head on straight regarding her horrible relationship patterns.

    Liesl and Nina and Peter in the cabin. Crazy psycho Liesl is beyond my favorite iteration of her. Plus I love the actresses’ chemistry. It almost makes it worth this horrible Henrik/Peter story.

    Speaking of which…Robin to Anna “It’s like I don’t know who you are.” Preach grrrl, preach.

    I decided to watch today’s episode and boy do they not make it easy to watch this show and enjoy it ): The only scenes I really enjoyed were the over-the-top ones between Olbrecht and Peter. I simply can’t stand Sonny and I resent that Max Gail is playing Mike when I would so much prefer to see Ron Hale in the role. I always feel uncomfortable when Maxie and Lulu are on the outs ):

    The only other things I enjoyed is that the location of the hard drive is in the “lost and found” box at the Metro Court! (:

    Because I haven’t been watching the show all that frequently I didn’t understand what Stella was muttering about as she entered the elevator.
