Good grief they seem to be bringing back every actor ever on this show, if they are still alive!

No matter what Carlivati says in the interview, I hope he cleans up the absolute mess a previous regime made of Rick Weber. That was a disgrace. I don't even mind another back from the dead situation after AJ. And I hope Rick doesn't turn up as a ghost visiting Monica. It's too bad that bringing Alan back would be pushing it. Damned hacks left a lot of damage to repair in their wake.

I'm not even a longtime GH fan, and I can still appreciate all Carlivati is trying to do. Especially with this move. I wasn't watching at the time of Rick Webber's murder, but I know many longtime fans were opposed to the decision. Carlivati "fixing" that proves how much of a fan of soap operas he is. I just love this man, and his collaboration with Valentini.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I only started watching GH a little over a year ago, and I'm thrilled by all the old faces that have been and continue to be showing up. IMO, most (if not all) of these characters are the ones that should have been around all this time in the first place.

Well I've been watching GH forever, since back to the Steve Hardy and Audrey and Jessie days when I was little watching with my Mom and I am loving every minute of them bringing back these vets. They are honoring 50 years of GH and what better way to honor it then with blasts from the pasts like this. Keep them coming is all I have to say!

Who is this "we" you speak of?

I don't have a problem with who they are bringing back. I've never really seen Rick Webber on the show since I never watched regularly until I started doing so last year. I tried watching off and on during the years most of the characters you mentioned were on and just couldn't do it. I didn't get to see the last time they brought this Rick back but I remember reading about it in SOD.

I think I understood the gist of your post in that your unhappy with everyone they've brought back and are bringing back.

Also, going into the past and working current stories into past ones has been done on soaps for forever. Sometimes it will be done with people you like and sometimes it won't but as long as soaps last it will always happen.

The show was a ratings powerhouse when many of these characters were front and center. ABC has been promoting the anniversary with a tie in book which is a book featured in a storyline as well as the PEOPLE MAGAZINE special GH anniversary issue . I have no illusions that this will bring back millions of viewers. There could though be a significant number of lapsed audience members who might be curious to see their old favorites.

I have watched GH on and off since the early 90's. There are some of the coming back characters I don't know particularly but am willing to give a chance. What I like what RC/FV are doing this that they are making it work for the overall story. So many times we hear about characters coming back to shows. Then when they show up it makes no sense or they just sit there and do nothing.

Sean and Tiffany and Lois need to be the next names we hear returning for the 50th.

not many have problems with these characters returning and anyone who would argue otherwise needs to look at ratings and demos, they've gone up with vets front and center, unlike when the unholy trinity was dominating

I watched GH almost from the beginning and have just started watching again. Love having the vets return even if only for short stints.

Would be shocked if Lois happened. Rena Sofer just tweeted a couple weeks ago that she doesn't think she could work with Wally Kurth anymore and its something she would have to think about. Silly as hell to me. But Ned is way way way more important than Lois. I would love to see Lois and Brenda once again and obviously Ned and Lois, but Lois without Ned is a useless character.

bring back Lesli Kay as Lois.

If Kristina can work with Jack, I think Rena could likely work with Wally and who says they'd even have scenes together
