    @Ray El Don’t believe for one minute that either Helena or Stavros are truly dead. Port Chuck is a great place to live—-you never die! Ugh, Connie/Kate is back. Haven’t we had enough of her?

  • jonboyelk

    @Robert Dude, the girl hasn’t spoken five words and already you don’t like her? Give the actress a chance. She’s got some big shoes to fill but she was pretty decent on Y&R.

  • PatF

    She actually was fantastic on Y and R as Abby. We’d take her back in a second.

  • Mike

    I don’t know I didn’t care for her on Y&R but loved her on GL. In fact I thought she was great on GL as Lizzie, but then I saw her play Abby and she just seemed one note. It was as if she was bringing nothing new to Abby and just playing Abby the same way she played Lizzie.

    Plus I always felt she was way too old for Lizzie.

    But I know she had her fans.

  • Mike

    Oops, I felt she was too old for Abby….not Lizzie.

  • PatF

    The (new) one today though actually looks OLDER than Marcy…

    Sigh…

  • David

    Too early to tell on the new Lulu. I will wait to see how she does over the next few weeks in the role. Going to be hard to get used to since Julie Berman was in the role for so long.

  • David

    No GH in Boston today. We got all news coverage. Yesterday was preempted but the ABC affiliate actually moved GH to their sub channel ME TV. Today there was a graphic saying the regular programming moved to ME TV but it was not. I understand the need to cover this but when they keep glorifying this tragedy and showing video of the explosion hundreds of timers per day(that is not an exaggeration) it gets ridiculous. Not to mention reporting information that is not verified and turns out to be false. Wonder how the preemptions here in Boston will effect the ratings if at all.

    GH SHOULD OF LEFT LULU OFF THE SHOW FOR A WHILE IT NOT EASY SEEING SOMEONE ELSE COME RIGHT IN TO PLAY THE ROLL.LULU IS AN IMPORTANT CHRACTHER TO GH TO JUST BRING SOMEONE IN WITH IN TWO WEEKS. THATS SOMETHING ALL MY CHILDREN AND ONELIFE TO LIVE WOULD DO. GRANTED LULU ISNT LUKE LAURA OR BOBBI .BUT STILL TO SOON FOR A RECAST GH DID THAT WITH CARLY WHEN TAMRA BROWN LEFT GH BROUGHT A NEW CARLY ALLMOST RIGHT AWAY AND IT DIDNT WORK . NOW IM NOT SAYING THIS NEW ACTRESS WONT DO A GOOD JOB WHO KNOW SHE MAY BLOW THE SOCKS OFF OF ALL OF US . I GUESS WE WILL SEE. I STILL WANT TO SEE MORE BOBBI HEATHER FELICA LUCY AND ALL THE VETS THATS WHAT THE SHOW IS ABOUT AGAIN LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY.
