I need an answer people! Is Ava's gallery girl a somewhat older V Ardanowski?

Why can't Sam be in a story where she's...I don't know, happy? And why can't FrankenTodd make like a shepherd and get the flock outta here?!

Yawn! I could care less about Franco or his relationship with that heinous Kiki. Who cares about her bio dad? All three OLTL characters are totally unnecessary.

Seriously?

First today with Alexis all of a sudden memory lapse when just a couple of weeks ago she implied to Anna she knew Sam's father and she told Ric she knew Sam's father. This show just keeps pissing me off. Just show Liz/Nik to make me feel better.

Alexis was dating a boy at a nearby boarding school when she became pregnant.

I stopped counting the number of time that OLTL changed Rexx Balsom's parentage from 2001 until the show went off the air in 2011.

I thought Alexis was raised on Cassadine island and never left until college or something??

I'm so sick of Franco, Silas and Kiki. Where the heck are Liz, Nik, Anna, Mac, Felicia, etc.? I swear, we get one day of veteran characters that matter to us and then 7 days of OLTL characters that are playing their second set of characters on a show that never needed them in the first place.

Excuse me while I go on a bit of a rant- --I can't stand Silas, Kiki, and Franco. There were dozens of characters full of connections and history they could've created why oh why! And Franco being the real Jason??? What does that even mean! Switched at birth who cares at that point what your real name was supposed to be? This isn't Jason 2.0 cause he has Ava memories. FYI Ava is the only redeemable light in this crazy dark tunnel of new characters. Was always a huge fan of Maura West and can't wait to see the cat fight showdown between her and Carly. When I started watching this show 15 years ago there was history and great families. There are strangers in the Q mansion, Morgan hasn't stopped whining long enough to say hello to his brother/cousins. this is all going downhill - rant over

Please tell me Sam's baby isn't going to be kidnapped again!!!! If they had to bring Franco back I was hoping they'd do it in a more normal way. Like have RH play a character like Paul Ryan and less like Todd but alas he's just Todd with highlights. I don't care about his obsession with Jason. I watched the show just after the jason accident and he was always such an important character. I miss him and not sure why the show doesn't understand that this isn't the way to fill the hole his character left

rissaw14 - Why be glad that the show is still on when it's becoming a totally different show? The name may be the same, but the characters I know and love are leaving or being shelved and the focus is on characters I don't care about and have no real connection to the show (I don't believe that Franco is really Jason's twin). If you love a show and new management comes in, changes the characters, changes the stories, changes the history of the characters and stories, and then just keeps the same name, it's not the same show. I'll "get over it" when they start writing this show like it's GH and not like it's a OLTL redo.

I completely disagree with almost ALL of these comments. Not only do I LOVE any character RH plays, but I love seeing Kristen Alderson as someone other than Starr! She seems more adult-like to me now. I also have always loved Michael Easton. I have watched GH off-and-on for the last 20 years or so (giving up on it often because of disliking the writing or storylines) and I have not stopped watching it once in the last 2-3 years! I CANNOT stand Ava or Maura West's portrayal of the character, I can't decide which I dislike more. Morgan is a dud in casting. He's cute, but that is about the extent of his appeal. I have never, and probably WILL never like(d) Elizabeth. Her character is too holier than thou for everything she has done in the past, and her personality leaves a lot to be desired. As far as focusing on the characters everybody "knows & loves", people apparently don't realize how many of those characters are getting older. They are less appealing to younger generations, and the younger generations are what will be watching this show from now into the next 20+ years hopefully. Every show needs to introduce new characters once in a while to gain more fans, as well as cover the losses of characters on the canvas. I really don't understand why everyone keeps expecting the show to stay the same day after day, year after year. That would be stale and not interesting to watch.

I'm afraid I can't bring myself to watch this show again until this Franco fiasco is done. It's an unwatchable nightmare.

I have stopped watching the show. I really can't stand Franco, or the daily insults to my (already limited) intelligence. So many other historical GH characters that could be on the show and Ron and Frank are force feeding us the worst GH characters since Jax' braindead girlfriend Miranda.

I like Ava Jerome, but that's about it. I really wish GH would just cut its losses and ditch Kiki, Silas, Franco...and...hell, I am going to say it

ITS TIME FOR OLIVIA TO GO! Olivia was just a bad Italian stereotype that Guza cooked up to introduce another spawn for Sonny. She has no purpose on the show. GH is getting rid of the wrong Falconeri woman IMO.

That's it, I am done ranting!

Alex Father names has a J in it and we saw the Jerome Gallery as a clue; I'm sure she will end up being a Jerome, whether Alexis lied or if she sees one of Ava's family pictures and recognizes him; but I think the biggest thing I see from this feed is that people seem to be focusing on 3 characters out of 20, There are still plenty of GH stories that have nothing to do with the lanview 3, Sonny, Luke, Laura, Scott, Lucy, Patrick, Britt, Nicholas, Felicia, Mac, Sabrina, Felix, Molly, TJ, Taylor, Tracy, Milo, Lulu, Dante, Maxie, Spinelli, Luke, "Robin", and I'm sure a few others have nothing to do with the Lanview 3, It's still General Hospital, but it's negative bitching that causes viewers that may want to tune in and see what is going on to tune out; based on all this ridiculous negativity, I wouldn't be shocked if ABC wasn't waiting for a reason to make the Chew 2 hours to save money and get rid of General Hospital all together or put out another useless Talk Show. It's sad that people only realize the importance of their favorite shows until they are facing cancellation. I have no faith that AMC and OLTL will survive past a 3rd season online or on OWN. Which means I still feel GH is all an ABC soap fan really has left. Sure there are things I don't like in certain story lines but if I decide to complain a little bit I do balance it out with the good thing that are happening on the show; not everyone will like every story line and any soap actor will tell you that a happy soap character is a boring back burner character; Mac and Felicia are happy; guess what no story line. We don't watch the show to see everyone smiling and happy and playing with their kids, its ok during Christmas or Thanksgiving but for the most part we want to see drama and that's what we are getting. Franco, Ava, Kiki, Michael, Morgan, Silas and Sam are bringing the drama. If no one says it in this feed let me be the one to stand out and say that I "LIKE" Franco, Kiki (And now) Silas. Keep the drama coming...

I thought that Alexis was lying to Sam too, but it does not make sense when her grandsons' life is at risk.

As for the OLTL trio, I can understand why they are front and center right now even if I do think the whole s/l is ridiculous. The whole point of the characters was for the ELQ power struggle. So far, that story has been scrapped in favor of this Franco crap. Liz and AJ/Nik have been backburner. No wonder Nik is having random conversations with Britt.

Monica is MIA, which astounds me considering her grandson is seriously ill and constantly in the hospital(which, btw you are the chief of staff, right??). Speaking of....how in the world is a sleeze like Brad able to try blackmailing Michael into going out with him? Why hasn't anyone called Cartini on this?

Anyway..I am so happy that GH is still on the air that even with all of the WTF stories, so whatever Smile

There are only 3 people from OLTL on GH right now and I cant see where the show has become a OLTL redo. I just dont see it. Like I said 2 years ago. A redo would be burning down the Q mansion and bringing in Llanfair and LaBoulaie.

OMG, love this post too. I've been saying from the beginning that no matter how LOVELY L Lo may be, one of the most limited, annoying characters on this show is Olivia, and the OLTL'ers are at the top of that list imo. Stopped watching a couple weeks ago, but love reading the boards. FYI, DOOL was FIYAH last Friday! Heck, even once lead actresses like Judi Evans -- and now a supporting player -- are hitting home runs every day compared the crap CarToony is serving up. I admire those who are hanging in there with GH b/c i definitely could not!

IOWA, thank you Smile and loving all your comments too! And so true what you and js3557 posted here.

@Phoenix Tremayne - People are concentrating on the three in this thread becausue it's headline and the promo attached to it is about Franco. As I said, when there ARE these other people and storylines going on, why must the promo be about THIS and promote Franco?

@brittnic4 - The notion that young people would only watch young people is ludicrous. Most 20-sth people I know who watch this soap love to see their Luke, Laura, Monica, Tracy and Robert the most. A good soap has always been multi-generational, with a place for all age groups. This isn't 90210.

I typically stay out of message board brouhahas, however the stuff some people are posting about the Llanview Three eating GH is ridiculous. Last I heard Prospect Park had Llanview and Pine Valley PA on lockdown. Haven't you heard, there is a soap opera equivalent to the Berlin Wall keeping the shows from mingling. The three actors/actresses (on trial) have never eaten GH, whether they were in their OLTL roles or their present incarnations. All three have always been paired with a long-term GH character/family.

I will be frank. I am not a fan of Franco/FrancQ, but RH is funny in the role. If RH was a different Q like Jimmy Lee Holt, I would be sitting pretty right now. However, this is not the case and we have to accept the current status quo. I really am enjoying Kiki, though I hope she turns out to be Silas' daughter. Silas has me intrigued thanks to Ava (Maura West).
