    After a couple of dry years, Ethan finally got some. Not impressed with the WIW storyline though.

    I have never watched One Life to Live, so I cannot comment on the characters moving to GH, but I will say that I am sick and tired of the constant promotion of ABC shows during the breaks, either commercial or between programs. I can understand if the advertisers are not buying spots, but do we have to have constant plugs for everything from the local news, to the talk shows, the cooking shows and the fantasy series, such as Once upon a time. The other day we had nearly seven minutes of commercials and plugs between 3 minutes each side of GH. Enough is enough.

    Wonder if Franco left some DVD's for Sam and Jason? Or if his body will ever be discovered? I doubt that, just in case James Franco decides he wants to return. And if anyone will investigate the fire? Naw.....

    OLTL : rumors. Don't know if this is considered a spoiler,because nothing is fact as of yet but ,on the other hand it hasn't happen yet so, read at your own risk!

    I read this morning that 4 to 6 people from OLTL are joining GH instead of the 2-4 originally planned.
    That Alcazar will return as Tomas.
    That John McBain will join the crew as a regular while some of the others will just be on until a few s/l's are finished.
    That they are testing John McBain with Sam. ( I had hoped they'd pair him with Liz as he is Jason like, sexy, quiet, interesting, without the hired killer stuff.
    But how can he come on without Natalie and their son?
    That's what I find confusing, if they are going to continue their s/l's from OLTL or just their characters in a new town.
    I read also that they may try to combine the two shows to keep both fans bases happy.
    My concern is that we aren't going to see our regulars as often as we'd like. Either that or s/l's will take on a faster pace .
    Guess we have to wait and see.
    Everything is suppose to go down the first couple weeks of Feb. New writers, new cast members , and basically a new show.

    Good Morning.

    Rans- I was thinking the same thing about Franco. Will they discover his body? Will Ronnie and the PCPD investigate the fire and Jason’s possible involvement? Also why was that toy monkey going in the final fire scene? I don’t remember it being on during the showdown.

    ***OFF TOPIC***

    Too cold to run with our running group this morning (16 degrees) so when our neighbors came over to watch the twins, I made waffles instead. We had nice visit, read the newspapers, and now getting ready to make pizza dough. Hubby is playing with the twins….not sure what their playing. it appears to involve running, several balls and my handbag. I think we need to take them outside for an outing. Hope everyone has a happy and fun Saturday.

    poodles: I doubt Jason would wind up a toy after he killed someone and lit the place on fire. GOOD CATCH!

    All this OLTL stuff has me worried. I think GH is about to turn into a totally different show.
    I now read that RH (Liz) just welcomed "Jessica" to the cast. (by twitter) How many does that make ?

    You are half way home, baby wise! This pregnancy is going fast! Will you let us know too what you are having? (hope so!)

    My "baby" and girlfriend had planned on being in Buffalo for the long weekend when some lady rear ended him, breaking his tail lights, so he didn't come.

    I never watched OLTL, so I’m not familiar with who is who. I would hate for the overall essence of GH to change. I like the mob and the hospital. How I see it, the OLTL ship has sailed and their grabbing a lifeboat the USSGH.

    ****OFF TOPIC*****
    Ran’s, I’m sorry about your sons accident and not being able to make it home. People need to pay attention when their driving. Will they be able to come home next weekend?

    We should find out on Monday on what we’re having. I will be happy to share the news with my cyber friends though- I think I already know who and what SHE is. This pregnancy is very different being a singleton. At this point with the twins I was already in maternity clothes experiencing what I considered major weight gain, etc. This time around has been a lot easier after that initial bout with morning sickness and what I called narcolepsy. LOL. I’m now just beginning to think about maternity clothes and will probably do some shopping on Monday. I have already retired the red Skinny jeans and replaced them with some pull on jeggings. Have a great weekend.

    Poodles – The toy monkey was always representative of Franco and I believe burning it was used as a dramatic device to symbolize the fact that Franco is truly dead and gone forever. No one had to turn it on. That could be explained by the fire, which could’ve melted the connections in the on/off switch to the point where they made contact.

    As for OLTL, I think that show is set in someplace called Llanview, right? Is that supposed to be in New York? What are they going to do, burn the town down and put everybody on a bus that breaks down in Port Charles so everybody just settles there? I feel bad for the fans of that show that it was cancelled, but I don’t want further dilute our already bloated cast with an influx of refugees coming to PC that will take air time away from the characters on GH, unless it’s Sonny, Dante, Lulu, or Dr. Steve of course. They’ve just introduced two new people, Bigfoot and Snow White who will take the place of the departed Lucky and Robin, numerically speaking, plus Maggie (a Lisa clone), and Delores the chick cop. I don’t think Jax is sticking around for very long this time either. Thankfully, they’ve finally gotten rid of a useless character that was never actually on the show by killing off Franco, but he soaked up a lot of air time with everybody just talking about him and taking steps to protect themselves from him. I am not optimistic that this will be a smooth, seamless transition. I’d say it seems more like they’re trying to cram a bunch of people into a phone booth, except that there aren’t any phone booths anymore. This will not sit well with GH fans like me, who have no connection or interest in the characters from another soap, and it probably won’t satisfy the OLTL fans either. If TPTB wanted to keep them happy then they should've never cancelled that show. I hope they don't ruin another one trying to make it up to them.

    The monkey was a WIND UP toy. The fact that it wasn't still, but "alive" and moving, still making noise, may mean it's not dead and either is Franco.

    Land View is in PA.

    And there were more then 8 people in the town and on the show. So no, it;s not the whole town, just some of the key characters.
    I guess Sam and John McBain were a very popular couple on a spin off show called Port Charles so they plan on testing that again.

    But, I too have very mixed feelings about this mix of shows.
    I guess they will probably get rid of the whole Cassandra, Ethan and maybe Ewen s/l. It's not popular and going no where.

    Luke is very rarely on, Kristina will be replaced by "Star". Mac maybe by John McBain,
    Every day more and more characters are tweeting that that are heading to Port Charles.
    OLTL did have a big fan base, about as many posters as we do and Im sad to say, the writing is on the wall.

    I just came over for a visit from the AMC board (Yes it still exists - we have over 3600 posts since September 23rd and averaging about 900+ per month)..I just have a couple of things to say....Sorry to the OLTL fans for YOUR loss too.
    To the GH fans....I know some of you don't really want the OLTL characters to come on over because it may dilute your own story lines. I only have this to say - be happy that you have a SOAP to "blog" about....because as I stated on the AMC BOARD - " KATIE COURIC" is probably salivating over the GH time slot as this is being posted.......

    *******************OFF TOPIC************(We don't have that designation on AMC anymore)

    MAMAJJ....Will be watching the NINERS - SAINTS game....I will be posting on the AMC board between SAINTS touchdowns so it may be quite often.....

    Ransomha – If it’s a wind up monkey (I never saw the key, but I’ll take your word for it) it could’ve been wound up beforehand and the catch released due to the heat of the fire, but that’s just splitting hairs on a scene that was obviously symbolic of Franco himself going down in flames, at least for now, and hopefully for good. Of course that’s open to interpretation. Maybe it was symbolic of how badly Franco’s “Planet of the Apes” movie crashed and burned at the box office.

    As far as these new people coming over from OLTL, that’s the whole point! I don’t want to see some stranger I don’t know or have any connection to taking Mac’s place, or Kristina being replaced by anybody other than Kristina, and Luke is an iconic legacy character played by a great actor who remains one of the most interesting characters on the show whenever he’s on. If they want to dump Ewan and Cassandra after such a short time, I’d be okay with that, but I doubt if that’s going to happen. If they want to replace Ronnie or Lucky with a good cop from Llanview that’d be fine too, because it would make sense. I’m not against adding a few new characters from a cancelled show in a logical manner, but I’m just skeptical that the sheer number of newbies will overwhelm any writing staff trying to fit them in seamlessly to an already over-crowded lineup.

    If this IS going to be the last year for General Hospital, there’s a lot to be resolved with the original cast before they ride off into the sunset, and I’ve also heard the rumors that there will be a number of former favorite GH characters returning to the show as well. I don’t want the show to spend what remaining time it has trying to work in a whole bunch of new characters in addition to bringing back some old ones. It’s going to get really crowded in the Chuckles if all that comes to pass. One would think there’s got to be a better solution.
