GH: New GH Discussion

Posted by Chad Hutton on March 20, 2010 at 3:47 PM

I am excited about the impending addition of Matt Borlenghi! He's got a big fanbase from his AMC days in the early 1990's thats stuck with GH knowing he's coming or started watching GH knowing he's coming. I fall under category # 1 having watched since 1993. So if GH does not bring him on as Valentin Cassadine they'll lose a lot of viewers! Valentin will be the first original character created for GH since Spinelli & Epiphany the character of Franco was not very "original" he reminded me of crazy Ryan Chamberlain & Damian Smith that type of baddie is cartoonish. With the addition of a new Cassadine hell bent on revenge against fellow Cassadine's plus Spencer's this will be a huge story for GH returning it to the storytelling it's famous for? When, Stephen Nichols came on as Stephan in 1996 bringing Tyler Christopher's - Nikolas plus Constance Towers as Helena # 2 with him ratings soared! Instead they chose to go with the Franco BS plus do a recast that was not needed because Greg had brought Lucky into his own & had made the role his own. GH whet our appetites last fall by showing Helena doing something she never does is be afraid be very afraid. This story could save GH & get fans back who would rather see Cassadine VS Spencer instead of Sonny VS whomever he is @ war with @ the moment. So, GH give us a V! Also why is GH bringing Skye & Brooke Lynn back when there is characters already on the canvas thats got the backburner blues? Only Valentin can save GH it would also give fans sick of  Jason & Sonny being front & center all the time a break!
