Remember when they announced that there would be a General Hospital spinoff and I was all, "Why do they need a spinoff? What the hell?"? And remember when they said that Robin and Patrick would be the centerpiece of this new show and I attempted to say something like "With a winning couple and talented leads at the forefront of this show, I am cautiously optimistic" but it came out more like "EEEEEEE! Scrubs! Jason Thompson! Kimberly McCullough! Stars! More screentime! Cupcakes and sparkles and kittens! EEEEEEEEEE!"
I should always trust my first instinct.
According to TV Guide, this is the cast of the show (not listed: Billy Dee Williams [?!?! --ed.]):
Steve Burton (Jason Morgan)• Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio)• Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake)• Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones)• Julie Marie Berman (Lulu Spencer)• Natalia Livingston (Emily Quartermaine)• Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Spencer)• Kent King (Lainey Winters)• Jason Gerhardt (Coop Barrett)• Josh Duhon (Logan Hayes)• Lindze Letherman (Georgie Jones)• Kiko Ellsworth (Stan Johnson)• Sonya Eddy (Epiphany Johnson)• Minae Noji (Kelly Lee)• Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli)• Adrian Alvarado (Cruz Rodriquez)• Derk Cheetwood (Max Giambetti)• Richard Gant (Russell Ford)• Wendy Braun (Ms. Sneed)
WHY THE HELL IS STEVE BURTON ON THIS SHOW? WHY?! TELL ME WHY!
I know that they are wading into unfamiliar territory with the whole newfangled hospital setting that they have going on here that doesn't exist on the mothership, so I can see why they'd want to cling onto something that they know and love but for the love of Courtney's snowglobe, there is no reason that a person should be on every single episode of a show that airs five days a week, 52 weeks a year and then appear on the spinoff of that show. No earthly reason. Unless this is all a ploy for ABC Daytime and the GH brass to drive me to an asylum. If it is, that's fine. I'm not offended. But don't take innocent people down in your attempt to drive me crazy! It's not right!
