Nathan Parsons

"The People vs. Tony Geary"

The Luke and Ethan paternity story on General Hospital has dealt a blow to many General Hospital fan's love for Luke Spencer and Anthony Geary. Now the once solid Luke Spencer fan base has broken into several smaller camps. Some still love anything and everything Luke Spencer. Others still like Luke, but hate Ethan and this storyline. Still others have lost all love for Luke, because of of this storyline. Meanwhile some fans only like Ethan and don't like Luke. Mallory at Serial Drama wrote an interesting piece that summarizes how many fans feel and I would encourage you to check it out. 

I liked life so much better when I operated under the assumption that everything bad about General Hospital was solely the fault of Bob Guza, and that the lack of rioting by the cast was just an example of their professionalism. When a certain daytime icon began being destroyed in a systematic faction and became history-denouncing and unlikable, my first reaction was, "For the love of Xenu, Guza, will you stop at nothing in your quest to be terrible?"

Except it turns out that while Bob Guza ruins most things, he doesn't ruin everything and cannot be fully blamed for the curious case of Luke Spencer, since Luke's portrayer is the story's biggest cheerleader and has taken to the streets (or, more accurately, the soap mags, but the image of Tony Geary roaming the streets proselytizing about Luke's story arc is the only amusing part of this debacle) to chastise viewers who are unhappy with the way Luke has been written.


General Hospital Spoilers!

Here’s the Scoop! 05.06.09

Nursing a Cinco de Mayo hangover? Be warned that this may make you nauseous. According to a report in this week’s TVGuide, Holly comes to town to tell Luke he is the father. Say it isn’t so! There is much more story potential if Robert Scorpio is the pops. Interesting tid bit… Nathan Parsons (Ethan) read for the role of Dante but didn’t fit the part because he is Australian despite most fans thinking his accent is a fake. TPTB - or TIIC as I like to call them - were so taken with Parsons, they created the role of Ethan for him. They should have stopped at him not being right for the role of Dante. CAUTION: Another interview with Emma Samms had her playing coy about Ethan’s paternity.

Speaking of yet another Corinthos child… lord there are way too many of them. Dante is still being cast according to sources. The original plan was to have Dante already in town when Michael woke up but the casting wasn’t going as planned. Do we really need more of Sonny’s offspring? Jason can’t be around the one child he has but Sonny has them literally coming out of the woodwork. READ MORE

Mirror, Mirror on The Wall, Who's The Greatest Hair Model of Them All?

TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco has released his list of Soap's Worst Actors. No surprise, The Bold and the Beautiful— or Passions 2009 as I like to call it— leads the pack with three folicle strutters making the cut.

General Hospital Spoilers!

Here’s the Scoop! 03.05.09

We’re going to make today a Q & A day. Tomorrow will be an off day unless my new internet is hooked up early enough to blog. Ask away and I’ll answer what I can.

So Luke loves the Cassadines and he always calls for a resurgence of all things Cassadine and to most that means their evil ways. Nikolas is always seen as the good Cassadine and I’m still trying to figure out what kind of Cassadine Alexis is supposed to be. They seem to forget that Sam is a Cassadine which sucks for the Sam fans but is ok by me. Apparently a RUMOR is out there that the ultimate Cassadine is returning. Helena! This RUMOR say Constance Towers MAY be returning in April. Why the return? I’m not sure but ever since Natalia Livingston returned as Rebecca and not as fan favorite Emily Quartermaine fans have been clamoring for Rebecca Shaw to really be Emily and have said Helena should be involved in the fake death. Word of Caution… the Helena RUMORS supposedly are coming from SID and while it’s a great mag sometimes their RUMORS are more miscommunication than actual facts. READ MORE

Tristan Rogers Blogs About Rumors

RUMORS are my game and it's a RUMOR-filled world for me, so when Luke sent me a link to Tristan Rogers' (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital, Night Shift) blog titled "Rumor of a Rumor" obviously my interests were piqued. Tristan has some good points when it comes to RUMORS in general, but it's the General Hospital RUMORS over who Ethan Lovett (Nathan Parsons) really is that had Tristan clicking away on his keyboard.

There’s a story/rumor circulating on GH right now that I have been
aware of because it was brought to my attention courtesy of you folk
who post on my site. And under most circumstances I would have left it
at that. However, as this one crossed the desk of my manager, and my
manager is generally “out to lunch” when it comes to things like this
that alone qualified it for some attention.

I am referring to the storyline/rumor on GH concerning
Ethan/Holly/Robert baby/child/whatever. From my position I have no READ MORE
