General Hospital’s 50th Anniversary April 1st!

It’s here! Tomorrow is the day the iconic, American soap opera, General Hospital turns 50! GH first aired on April 1st, 1963. Just about a year ago, the fate of the entire soap opera genre was hanging by a thread. Skeptics and loyal fans alike were uncertain of the fate of this beloved American tradition. In such a short time, General Hospital has proven it is possible to overcome what was the end of a dying genre. As we have seen, the genre isn’t dead. It has just begun.

After the cancellation of ABC’s All My Children and One Life to Live, fans immediately protested and banded together to get their show back on the air. It was obviously a mistake to take these two shows off the air but soon after there was talk of reviving the shows for online viewing. General Hospital was ABC’s last standing soap and the executives and actors knew that they had to do everything they could to keep this show alive. And they did. In one year, we have seen an amazing turn around, complete fan devotion, and dedication from all that are involved in the production of the show. Women and men of all ages have given General Hospital a place in their home. Even when the time slot changed to 2Pm Eastern after decades of airing at 3 PM, fans still remained loyal. I am sure we can accredit a portion of that to the wonderful technology that is DVR.

This is such an exciting time for General Hospital and it’s devoted fans. As a GH fan myself, I want to congratulate everyone who is a part of this amazing production. I also want to thank them for making me fall in love with this show as a young girl. General Hospital has created a bond between myself, my Mother, sister, and friends that I will be able to cherish forever. My Mom passed her love for GH on to me and I in turn am passing it on to my little girl.

Please make sure to tune in tomorrow and all this week as General Hospital celebrates it’s fantastic 50th anniversary and the legendary Nurses Ball. We look forward to the coming surprises they have in store for all of us!

Sonny and Connie Make Love

Sonny and Connie spent Valentine’s Day together. Connie finally heard the words she has been hoping to hear out of Sonny. “I want you,” is what he said to her before they kissed and made their way to a private room at The Haunted Star. Sonny has a lot to deal with when it comes to Connie. She loves him, she hates him, she tries to sabotage him, she supports him. Despite everything Connie has done, Sonny reassures her that he is by her side when she expresses her fear. Connie tells him this is the happiest she has been in her whole life. This makes us wonder how long the bliss between Sonny and Connie can last. Previews mention the return of Kate very soon. Will this be the end of Connie?

Lulu Receives the Original Ice Princess

Lulu received a mysterious gift. When she opened it, she and Dante thought it was strange and brushed it off as a joke. When Dante and Lulu ran into her parents, Luke and Laura, Lulu showed them the “black rock,.” or as Lulu referred to it as a “burnt cake pop.” Both had shocked looks on their faces and asked Lulu where she got that from. Dante and Lulu admitted that they didn’t know where it came from. Is this the new beginning of Helena’s reign of terror? The Cassadines were responsible for this little rock way back long ago when it almost froze the world. Will history repeat itself or will things be even worse this time around? With the Ice Princess resurfacing, this could also mean that more Cassadines will be resurfacing as well. Helena’s true motive will eventually be revealed.
