Why is it so important to make sure the three stars from One Life To Live have a job on General Hospital? Apparently they came to the show because their show got canceled and a job on General Hospital kept them busy. Their One Life To Live characters fit in well in Port Charles and we grew to accept them- vampires and all.
However, they were forced to leave. It wasn’t too heartbreaking as they’d only been part of General Hospital for a short time. Some characters have been part of the soap for years but they get released and we do miss them. Sometimes they come back! And we are happy to see them most of the time.
Starr, John and Todd came back too. But as totally different characters. Their weird stories seem to just rob the regular characters of screen time.
Kiki looks just like Starr and I can’t believe Michael doesn’t see this as they were so much in love. This makes Michael seem really stupid. I don’t think Starr would’ve fell in love with somebody so stupid.
John…he just looks silly. He looks like he’s wondering why he’s present in Port Charles with such a weak storyline and such a tiny ponytail. I cant’s see the original John ever having his hair in a stubby ponytail. It’s not a very good disguise. I don’t think it will take too long for Sam to fall in love with him as she certainly sees he looks just like John.
And then we have Todd. Blond Todd- totally different than the other Todd! So different he might actually be Jason! Or Franco! His Todd character was such a strong character it’s hard to separate him from this clone. I’m sure Carly would see the resemblance to Todd and if not, Todd’s distinctive voice would certainly tip her off.
It’s beginning to seem like the Starr/John/Todd show instead of the soap I know and love. Maybe they shouldn’t have come back all at the same time. Yes I know they need a job but General Hospital has always been about more than that. Theres many beloved actors whom have been let go who may have needed a job too.
Yes, everything will come together in the end and they’ll be a reason to have these three foisted upon us but the way they have all been brought back is too much to believe. I wasn’t totally satisfied with the end of the vampire segment as I expected it to make more sense then it did. But with vampires maybe one can’t expect much. And I’m not sure that is really all over now either. Not the way Lucy spazzes out when she sees John/Silas/Vampire. I would think her many talents could be better utilized away from the vampire line.
There are many tales I’d like to see finished instead of spending so much time with the OLTL castoffs. None of their stories were ended when they left which is understandable but it’s too much to see all of them back now as if they never were in Port Charles. They do not slowly reappear to help us get used to their new characters but BAM! They are front and center with new story lines while many of the regulars are left in the shadows.
