“I tuned in,” he said. And was kinda turned off.

As William deVry’s Twitter followers well know, he occasionally checks in on General Hospital, where he played Julian Jerome from 2013-20. He wasn’t impressed by the September 7’s twists of plot. “Nothing happened,” he said.

When a viewer suggested that the soap-hopper’s negative review was just sour grapes, because he’d been let go by the show, he responded, “Sour grapes? I was expecting [the] big Sonny reveal.

“Simmer down,” he continued. “If you are expecting the big Sonny reveal or Carly/Jason wedding, then nothing happened.”

In any case, deVry’s grapes are very sweet, thank you very much. “Life is too short for sour grapes BS on either side,” he said. “I’m happy where I’m at. They are happy. Win/win.

“Well-directed show, though,” he added. “I tuned in!”

The veteran of All My Children and The Bold and the Beautiful went on to share his theory about why shows don’t zip along like, in his estimation, they used to. “Honestly, I’ve said this before, and I know I’m right. Stories used to go faster because fan faves would work every day. Now?” he noted. “They can’t. Gotta stick to their [contractual] guarantee per week.

“So a storyline goes from six months to two years… three months to nine. It’s unfortunate,” he concluded. “A storyline has to fit into [the] salary-cap era.”
