Very disappointed in the powers that b @ GH. The ratings momentum around the 50th was blown, BADLY, sorry GH fans we were misled.

  1. I've been a fan of Rebecca Herbst almost from the time she came on the show back in the late 90's. She is the main reason I watch GH these days. It's been horrendous for some years now. Can barely stomach the show. I feel for you Jack Wagner. And, I agree with your take on the show and how it misrepresents many of the characters. An injustice has been done to you.

  2. In one hand he's right, because there was very little point in bringing Frisco back only to have him leave like a heel again.

    For Frisco & Felicia fans, this was not true to form. They were never Luke & Laura. F&F were sillier, more easy going and the WSB was really the problem. After Frisco left in the 90's during Maxie's heart transplant story, the demolition of Frisco's character began. He was written as a dead beat dad after the fact, but if you watched during Maxie's original birth he was thrilled and loved Felicia to no end.

    I do get her choosing Mac based on how they wrote Frisco into such a bad corner, but during the 50th was a chance for Frisco's redemption. And how much have we seen of Felicia and Mac since? They've barely been on, so would it have mattered if Felicia run off in the sunset with Frisco one more time? That's the kind of romance that soap fans want...we want the fantasy, not the reality!

    Now I will say that JW probably burned his bridge with the current GH regime by Twitting this rant, but I doubt he cares. It's unfortunate that Jack & Kristina's personal history probably played a part in why he chose not to stay on the show this time and why it took so long for him to come back in the 1st place. We can't blame it all on the TPTB.

    At least F&F fans will always have the 80's to remember them by!

  3. Despite whatever the personal relationship between the Wagners had on GH not keeping Jack around, the way they wrote Frisco was so far out of character.
    Frisco was a real prick towards Mac Scorpio. He came off as callous and selfish. In the past, he and Mac had a good rapport. Perhaps all those years in the WSB turned Frisco into a mere shell of his former self.
    I agree that they could have told a better story as to why he'd been gone all these years.

  4. Im tired of producers who just prop their friends and pretend to give history credence when in fact propping their buddies is really all they do

  5. I'm not sure why Jack Wagner is coming off as the bad guy in all of this. I, for one, applaud any actor who will stand up for the integrity of his character. Frisco was a noble hero and it was lazy writing over the years to tear down that character into nothing more than a selfish, uncaring, deadbeat dad.

    I just don't understand why past characters have to brought back and their legacies tarnished, by the current regime or the prior one. The return of Rick Webber years ago is another prime example.

    I really wanted to see Frisco back in Port Charles and was really hyped for it. However, looking back now, I wish Jack had never agreed to return. There was so much more they could've done with him, but that would never happen because they are not interested in writing for any of our old favorites. They didn't even want him for any longer than it took to get him into town, reconnect with Maxie, get humiliated by Felicia and then leave Maxie once again.

    I haven't been able to watch GH since - they lost me as a viewer for the first time in 30 years.

    1. I agree----Frisco and Felicia were my all time favorite couple on GH. The way Frisco was portrayed during the 50th anniversary was rediculous.F&F had the greatest love story ever on any soap opera. Very disapponted the way it all ended. Felicia and Mac are about as boring as any couple could be. Big mistake GH on having Frisco leave alone.

  6. Well they could still turn this around . Frisco could have left because Felicia still wants him to be happy working with WSB and just said what she needed to say . Maybe She still loves him and is just going to marry Mac because she don't want Frisco to choose . After all she was with him and helping him until Georgie was killed .The stoyline still could be saved ---we still have hope

  7. Really, if you are really a GH fan, then you know Frisco was a dead beat dad. He didn't come back when his daughter died. To be honest I can't remember if he came back when Maxie had her heart transplant. So what, he had a 180 turn around. Frisco want what he wanted when he wanted. He was played exactly as his character should have been. He left when he couldn't get what he wanted. Bringing old characters back is a gamble, sometimes they are welcomed and sometimes they aren't...but his character wasn't any different than it was when he left...so he needs to get over himself.

  8. General Hospital is in no way the show it was in the 80's. I give it a try every few years and am consistently disappointed. Frisco coming back charged me up to start watching again!! Frisco and Felicia were and are my favorite soap couple in the history of soaps. Needless to say I was thrilled they got together in real life and heartbroken when the split up. I understand it must have been very difficult to write for actors/characters in a situation like this, however, I believe it can be done. The writers destroyed this couple and Frisco's character. Frisco was NEVER this callous, uncaring father/husband he was written to be this last return. Watch youtube clips from the 80's and 90's. He loved his wife and child sincerely. There is even a clip from the early 90's where he tells Felicia he wants more kids with her. I don't know who these current writers are but this soap, which was once my favorite, with these two characters (Frisco and Felicia) that I loved to a point of obsession, is now a waste of ABC's air time. Maybe someday a writer like Gloria Monty will come in and fix everything and make it the show it was in the 90's. I would start watching again as would many fans. I guess one can hope!!!

  9. So am I wrong or wasn't one of the points of bringing back these GH alumni characters to lure back the alumni audience?? Destroying the character of Frisco Jones and insulting Frisco and Felicia's legacy is the way these bonehead writers do this?? Seriously?? This show is a total joke!! It used to be so good and now it is pure crap. No wonder sitcoms go off the air after a while, if they stayed on too long they would start to suck!! Case in point, General Hospital!!

  10. Kudos to Jack Wagner for expressing his opinion. The writing over the years destroyed the character and the most recent return certainly did little to redeem him. Not sure why the writers could turn Robert Scorpio and Anna Devane into caring but ever absent parents to Robin, but not Frisco. Totally agree that any rating momentum is being lost. A storyline involving Robert coming out of his coma and the search for Robin could include so many of the past and current characters. I would love to see Robert, Anna, Duke, and Frisco working together. Also, it would give the GH alumni characters an opportunity to interact with Patrick, Subrina, Mac, Felicia, Brit, Spinelli and Maxie. This storyline would be far more interesting than what is currently on GH.

  11. Unless you go back and watch Frisco and Felicia from the beginning you guys wont get it . Frisco did everything to please Felicia and every adventure was about keeping her safe -She wanted him home 24-7 They will always be in love -Felicia only told Frisco that Mac was in her heart -Fact is She loves Frisco still does !The writers cant take that away from the real 80s Fans -Its only a soap!lol---BUT the real question all Frisco and Felicia Fans would like it know --WILL THEY EVER GET BACK TOGATHER IN REAL LIFE???
    They loved hard and still say ---They Love each other and have a great relation ship .

  12. Frisco has been written as a dead beat Dad for quite some time. He never showed up at Georgie's funeral so why would Jack Wagner expect TPTB to write Frisco as totally changed. To do that they would have to keep the character on the show for quite a while and show that he has changed. I think the storyline was written exactly as it should have been. If Jack Wagner wanted the character to be redeemed then he should have made an agreement to stay on the show for a while and have some input on the storyline.
