With Frons & JFP FINALLY gone, I imagine we’ll be seeing some changes on GH (hopefully for the better).
What are some changes you think will happen or some you would like to happen?
My number #1 thing is that I’d like to see happen is the return of some of the characters/actors that Guza and Frons pushed out like Bobbie, Scott, Mac, Felicia, Holly, Robert, Anna, Lucy, Kevin. They did really will with this sort of thing on OLTL, and I think it could really help give the show a little bit of a boost. Aren’t most of them still suppose to be hanging around Port Charles? Looking around online and at old episode descriptions, I see that Lucy & Kevin are apparently living in Paris (when the hell did this happen? I must have missed that day lol), Robert and Anna are somewhere together (I must have missed that day too), and that Felicia is suppose to be in Texas taking care of her dying grandmother (seriously? Mariah has been dying since I was like 7). I guess the rest of them are still suppose to be arond. Maybe somebody who has watched more frequently than me in the past few years could fill me in (Boidiva? east/west? Im looking at both of you!).
My number #2 would be to get Monica in a story that doesn’t revolve around effing Jason and Sam, and also get Alexis, Edward, Tracy, and Luke into good stories (are those really the only “older” people on the show still??).
My last wish/suggestion is for them to bring on some people to people to interact with the Lulu & Maxie age group, the Michael & Kristina age group, and the Morgan/Molly age group. Lulu and Maxie desperately need some people (other than Dante & Spinelli) to interact with, and Michael, Kristina, Molly, & Morgan need some non relatives to interact and have story with. Right off the top of my head, I know there’s Lucas Jones, Brook Lynn, Dillon, Lucy’s kids (Serena and that other little girl), Tom Hardy Jr. (who would be Elizabeth & Steve’s cousin), and, going a little pre-Guza, Sean & Tiffany’s kid- any of these people would fall into those age groups, none of them are related to Sonny, most of them are pretty much blank slates, and would provide a little bit of history to the show.December 4, 2011 at 6:17 pm #420644
My first hope is that they end the Franco non-sense. I would like to see them name Monica chief of staff and have her interact with the various doctors and what not and will give her plenty of story outside the hospital as well. I would like to see them commit to Alexis and Mac as a couple. I would also like to see Elizabeth and Matt together because I like their chemistry. Recast Kristina with a slightly older looking actress and pair her off with Johnny.December 5, 2011 at 5:31 pm #420646
They need to do what DAYS did and then go from there is my short answer. I can’t get too excited/hopeful in terms of wishful storytelling, b/c the show is not long for this world.
But like I mentioned in a previous thread as a wishful storytelling, if Robin is going to die usher back in the Nurses Ball for a final time. That could be used as the jumping off event like DAYS did w/the Horton Square or like what Ron and Frank did w/Asa’s death.December 10, 2011 at 6:25 pm #420647
From what I recall, Lucy and Kevin moved to Paris off-screen sometimes after “Port Charles” ended. I don’t recall if it was mentioned on-screen or not.
Honestly, the first character I want brought back into things is Bobbie. The fact that she just vanished makes no sense to me. She was head-nurse for YEARS and then all of a sudden she’s gone and Epiphany is head nurse? WTF! Even stragner is that Bobbie would be seen at the hospital, in the background but have no dialouge and she’d be taking orders from Epiphany! Like, HELLO, Bobbie has been head nurse for over 20 years! I’d love to see Bobbie back on canvas interacting with Luke and Lulu to start. Perhaps talking some sense into Carly (Carly has needed her mother’s advice for YEARS now).
Next, it would be wonderful to see Felicia return to town, and interact with Mac and Maxie. I think a Felicia/Mac/Alexis triangle is in order now. Mac and Alexis have only been thrown together because Phelps refused to allow veterans on-screen, but they could turn into a viable couple if given an incentive. And what better than Felicia returning and being interested in him to juice things up?
While it would be nice for Robert and Anna to return, I see no need for them w/out Robin on-screen. Unless they return and she becomes police commishonier; perhaps Mac is fired after years of being unable to squash crime in P.C. and Anna gets the job. Maybe, Robert follows her to town and falls in love with Bobbie? Perhaps, Luke and Robert start a feud because Luke thinks Robert isn’t worthy of Bobbie?
Lucy and Kevin returning would ROCK! Lucy and Tracey could re-ignite their bitter rivarly, and perhaps, Lucy, Alexis and Diane could get into hilarious trouble together?
Scott Baldwin would be a welcomed return ONLY IF he is written as a three-dimensonal character again, and not as a cartoon villian like he was during his most recent stint at GH.
Also, the show needs more romance and heart. The show has lacked a soul for the better half of the last decade and a half. Ron and Frank need to revitalize PC and bring some of the soul, heart and social conscience back to the series. They need to revitalize GH like they did with OLTL in 2005…
