So, is anyone watching the 50th anniversary marathon?

I think they've done a good job picking which episodes to show. They allow those who are late to the GH game to learn the back story on many of the characters. It's also fun to see the characters in the early years. Robin is so cute. And, my how the years haven't been good to many of them.

I watched a few of them, the only thing I didn't like was that they ended with a cliffhanger but the next episode wasn't the outcome of the previous one. Left me wanting more.

Yeah, I hear you there. I just watched to see the characters and get a little insight into their personality. If you want to see how the cliffhangers end, you need to watch ALL episodes from day 1. All 50 years worth.

The guy who plays Alan Q has been back as a ghost several times and always looks a little chubby. This time he's thin. Hope he isn't sick.

I liked the marathon but I would've hoped they out together a primer on the characters instead. Talking heads. Graphics. Video clips. Showing backstory of today's characters. They could dedicate one day a week or 15 minutes a day to that for however long it took and brought on new viewers or refreshes old ones.

You do realize that Alan Q. in this marathon is from years ago, right?

I knew this would happen. We're crossing timelines.

I actually haven't watched Tuesday's episode yet.

I don't need it.

I was talking about drawing new viewers in and making it a better celebration of the last 50 years. If Doctor Who can do it, GH can.

I actually thought he looked better than he has in years. Go look at the very early Alan and try to match him up to the bloated guy who raised Emily. Hard to do.

Now this past week was wild. I still think the writers are smokin' something.

And, if I may be so bold, Sabrina is looking good. What's going to happen when Robin finally shows up?

Now we need to get back to finding Lulu and Dante. It looks like Helena has been written off. Or has she?\

Really liked that Sam didn't want to dance.

Well, they say that sometimes looks can skip a generation.

So now we see the NEW Lulu. So, how long before she gets her memory back?

Speculation, spoilerized just for the hell of it.
Spoiler:
I think it will be Dr Britt that brings back Robin.

Also, is Stavros and Helena really gone? It seemed that Stavros was going to bring back his mother like she did with him. But, now that he's in the deep freeze, that looks unlikely. However, there's Britt's mother.

You'd think there would be a very precise way to put people in and out of the frozen state. And didn't the thermometer say -200 C or something ridiculously cold? Still, Stavros was frozen before and they revived him, so who knows?

I refuse to feel sorry for Britt-- I don't care how nasty her parents are.

Johnny Z showed up on last night's episode of "Bones" as a male stripper.
Forgot to mention that he was the killer.

So Conte shows up.
I have to say that there are large ears in PC.

I think Britt is faking it and is saying she'll get an abortion in order to put stress on Patrick.

How long before Lulu remembers?

'OLTL,' 'AMC' producer sues ABC for allegedly hindering relaunch

I will bet that the two web shows will die real fast. Let hope so, then we can have Toddy and Star back on GH. :roll eyes:

http://theclicker.today.com/_news/20...-relaunch?lite

You would think P Park would have made a deal with Netflex, instead of iTunes or the stupid Hula.

Michael got really drunk and woke up in Brenda's bed the next morning. That said, I don't think they really had sex. Michael was too drunk to remember and Brenda hasn't really said....so it's not clear.

I don't think they did. Everyone (including Michael) is assuming they did and Brenda isn't saying. I think for whatever reason she's letting everyone just assume they did.

Whew, I was hoping it was something like that. Just seemed too out of character for Brenda. Though letting eveyone think it happened just to tweak Carly is exactly something Brenda would do. Especially since it sounds like Carly walked in and just assumed that Brenda had seduced her baby boy.

I don't believe they had coverage of the Boston thing on all afternoon Friday. It was 9 p.m. when they found the guy--they had nothing new to say before that.

Is Brenda sticking around? It would be nice to have Todd back. Starr is optional. It would be hard to have her come back and explain why she treated Michael so bad. It was out of character for her.

Friday episode will be on Monday due to the Boston thing. You will not miss anything.

Just guessing here but I think what will happen is the Michael will get another phone call from Starr in LA and we will have Michael+Starr storyline in LA. Todd will return to fight will Connie over the publishing company.

I am sooo sorry that the safety of everyone in my home state was such an inconvenience to you.

If they had had 1 tiny bit of new information that we hadn't all heard already (yes, I have been paying attention, and I sympathize with those who were holed up in their homes) I would have been happy to hear it. They did not.

Speaking of the preemption, I noticed that my SP wasn't going to pick up this Monday's ep because it's really Friday's. I had to add it.

GH fans a new soap is about to begin....this from SoapZone

Prospect Park and Walt Disney Co./ABC haven’t been able to work out a mutually agreeable system of co-existence after months of haggling. The result is a lengthy, exacting, $25-million lawsuit, which was filed by Prospect Park against Disney/ABC at the L.A. Superior Court last Thursday for breach of contract. Prospect Park is asking for a jury trial.

The lawsuit verbiage goes so far as to accuse ABC of sabotage. “Regardless of how successful Prospect may be, the fact remains that ABC did not deliver what it promised, Prospect did not get what it paid for, and Prospect is now entitled to recover millions of dollars in damages for ABC’s egregious conduct,” read the suit.

The problem mainly came to a head when neither party could arrive at a consensus on what to do about several of OLTL’s licensed characters, on loan temporarily to GH for the cross-overs. According to Prospect Park’s lawsuit, ABC was supposed to give these characters back for the online OLTL launch. Everything came to a head, supposedly, when ABC planned to bring back Starr’s Kristen Alderson, Todd’s Roger Howarth, and John’s Michael Easton to GH starting May 10, reportedly as new characters. Not good enough for Prospect Park.

According to an April 18th Deadline report by Nellie Andreeva and Dominic Patten, ABC made returning to OLTL tougher for the cross-over actors by offering some of them long-term contracts (gainful employment). “The suit says that, despite having the characters on a temporary basis, ABC signed the actors playing them in long-term deals, making their return to OLTL difficult and ‘effectively removing any incentive for them to do so.’ (Howarth recently made a short-term deal with Prospect Park to do a stint on OLTL before returning to GH.)”

Furthermore, according to the lawsuit, Prospect Park was supposed to be consulted on how ABC wrote the borrowed OLTL characters based on their agreement. Alas, ABC “for over a year” did not honor that part of the agreement, the suit continued.

Apparently, ABC not only killed off OLTL’s Hope and Cole, but destroyed Tomas so completely on GH — hinting that he could be Lorenzo Alcazar in hiding — that it’d be tough for Prospect Park to revive him for fans, the suit alleges. And Tomas wasn’t even among the seven, borrowed, licensed OLTL characters in question.

If that weren’t bad enough, Prospect Park’s lawsuit claims ABC wouldn’t let go of OLTL and AMC URLs (onelifetolive.com and allmychildren.com) for use, also based on the licensing agreement. “These URLs are not only critical to establishing public awareness for the re-launch, but they are part of the rights paid for by Prospect. The lawsuit also claims that ABC recently threatened not to air ads for OLTL because they feature an actor who is now playing a new role on GH. Prospect Park claims that it made ‘repeated overtures’ to ABC to ‘resolve these issues amicably,’ which were rebuffed by the network.”

ABC reps would not comment on the lawsuit’s allegations.

So, because of all of this crap, say good-by to Todd, Star and John...

Starting May 10, three of the most popular OLTL actors will come back to GH but in different, new roles — to ostensibly accommodate Prospect Park’s licensing agreement with ABC. (We know how well that turned out.) The guesses are on as to who Michael Easton (John), Roger Howarth (Todd), and Kristen Alderson (Starr) will play next. At Daytime Dish (April 18), they’re saying Alderson will surface as Scotty’s daughter, Serena, and already filmed some scenes with Kin Shriner, where she feuds with him over marrying Laura… Easton’s going to be the twin of serial killer Steven Clay/Caleb Morley — or maybe Robert Scorpio’s long-lost son… and Howarth will be the long-lost son of Tony Cassadine and Alexandria Quartermaine, Alexander — or, if you believe another DD post, Franklyn (no wonder Heather had a soft spot for Todd).
