As usual, on Sunday I try to round up all the goodies and fun stuff about GH that are out there! Friday started off the ROCK The cruise with Soap Stars. The Scrubs Hub reports that Jason Thompson was on board lookin “fine”… I’m sure we’ll get more dish when the cruise is over.
I’m going to talk about the EXTRAS today. You know, the little things that make soaps so fun. How about people? Big Alice seems to be one of the few left. She’s on maybe once a month? Milo and Max have been shoved to the background again. Mercedes is supposedly Emma’s nanny soon. I personally hope the extras get more airtime. That’s how Diane started–and look how much she adds to the canvas! Another one I miss? Remember Marty? The always suffering under Carly Metro Court desk clerk, Marty. He’s played by Andrew Lee. I hear he’s part of the budget cuts. I guess Olivia is our “Metro Link” now. Sorry…get rid of some of the “special huge effects” and give us our PEOPLE back! I remember Penny the waitress from Kelly’s…she filled in for Liz all the time. I tell you what, you never know where your next gem is hiding unless you have some extras to tie the canvas together. (Elton anyone?) BTW, Kasey and other WUBBERS love Tony Daly as Brad. Likeable and cute!
How can you help? WRITE IN people….fanmail is huge! Address: General Hospital @ ABC Studios 4151 Prospect Ave Hollywood, CA 90027. Save the “Martys” and “Big Alices” out there. We need them!
I was fascinated by Winnie’s messenger bag with the skull the other day. I thought it was a fun touch. Being the prop geek that I am, I did some snooping and it’s actually from the Disney line from Pirates!
Speaking of PROPS….let’s talk about the BUBBLE LAMP, shall we? As you’ll notice, there’s a clear bubble lamp that follows people all over the states and PC. First it’s in Carly and Jax’s house, then all the way in LA at the “hotel” and someone sharp spotted it at the Metro Court’s Honeymoon Suite!! It may also hover at Scrubs house too. It DOES get more airtime than Monica or Edward, that’s for dang sure. Keep an eye out for it.
As for the ratings, ASHP commented:
I believe the reason why GH went up slightly this week is because of the
Sonny/Carly/Michael promo. The highest rated day was the Sonny & Carly hug day
at Michael’s bedside. You can say what you want about Sonny & Carly, but they
do effect ratings and usually in a good way. GH rose slightly this week, but
it’s better then where it was heading the week before.
Could be..who knows. We’ll see Michael move soon..a hand. A foot. We’ll probably also see his face pop up now that he’s cast. We’ll be spending WAY more time at his “long term care” facility.
Oh! one more tidbit: The Daytime Emmys are now scheduled for September. Interesting. They’ve moved because no network wanted them! Heh. Let’s see if they can get their act together, move them back to May or June and find a home.
Have a great Sunday. Thanks for reading and thanks for commenting! I’ll try to get some new scoops up later, but there aren’t a lot of goodies out there.
