    Re: General Hospital

    I wasn't around for the Brenda/Sonny bit, but was totally unimpressed with her this go-round. She just seemed b*tchy from the beginning, & not likeable at all.
    One thing that made me laugh is that they referred to her as a "supermodel". Since when are supermodels short? They all seem like they're 6' to me. Same with Erica on AMC & Gabrielle on Desperate Housewives. All 3 are quite short & would never make it in high fashion modelling. I guess on TV they can take these liberties if a woman is attractive, but come on! Never-Would-Happen.

    As to Stavros, he was also before my viewing time. The only thing I knew about him was that he was somehow Nikolas's father. So I googled the character & read up on him. Quite the story. Apparently he's been "killed" numerous times, the last time he fell down some kind of deep pit, I think pushed by Luke, maniacally laughing all the way.
    He seems like a good replacement villian for Helena.

I'm not clear if Michael knows what (didn't?) happen though---he's acting like he blacked out a bit. On the other hand he's saying Mom, she didn't hurt me....
    Otherwise, even though he is no biological relation to Sonny it's just too irredeamable. I doubt Marcil will ever be on the show again for long stretches, but they like having her be able to pop in and out to disrupt things. If she's alienated everyone then she's no use.
    I was hoping that we'd get some explanation of the phone call from Starr, but not yet....

    Stavros is back? Someone remind me...was he last seen in a deep freeze or something?
    Yeah, I got that same vibe. I hope it's true. I don't really want to despise Brenda that much.

    Re: General Hospital

    I hate Brenda and always have. I can see it now once Sonny finds out she will cry golden tears and she will be called all the things he used to call Carly when mad at her. Brenda is too much of a wimp so she will slither off to the hole she slithered out of and wait for the next time Jax comes a calling. Ping and then Pong as usual. I so wish Carly had that bat she held off the five families with that time,lol!

    I didn't used to hate Brenda. It's just that she hasn't matured AT ALL since she started on this show as a teenager. Carly can be frustrating, but at least she's turned into some semblance of a grown-up.

    Please God, never let me meet a grown up like Carly! She is despicable, everything is all about Carly. I don't think anything happened between Brenda & Michael, I think she is just using it to get under Carly's skin. And it's working.

I liked him as Stavros.
    I too was/am a HUGE Robert Kelker-Kelly fan! I loved him when he came to Days of Our Lives as a temporary 'replacement' for Bo, and then again as a 'replacement' Stavros on GH. It would be so terrific to have him back on GH on a permanent on/off relationship. If we have to have a Cassadine baddie pop in from time to time on GH, THIS is the Cassadine I want!

    Speaking of Days of Our Lives and GH having actors going back and forth between them - there's been lots of them. In addition to RKK, for example the actors who played Ned Ashton, Edward Quartermaine, and Katherine Bell (a while back), just to name a few others. And now, to add to the list, it looks like Jen Lilly (recent GH replacement Maxi) has been cast on Days.

    I loved him all the way back to when he was on Another World!

    I just read a TVGuide article that was talking about him coming back. Said he will be around for a little while, but not long term - that the Spencer/Cassadine feud needed a new spin, so this was their idea. The article talked about how they will keep the feud back and who else might show up. I haven't watched GH regularly, so I'll put the rest in spoilers and others can say whether it is really a spoiler:

    Click to see Spoiler:
    They mentioned bringing Victor Cassadine back at some point in the future (I guess played by Thaao Penghlis (isn't he the same guy that played Tony DiMera?). In addition, their was specific talk about Sam's father and who that is. In light of the larger interview, it appears that her father will also be a Cassadine? Is that pretty much accepted at this point?
