    So Mad!!! I Loved the old Michael. I wish they wouldn’t change him. And while I am on the subject of changing characters I know the new Lucky is the Original Lucky but I miss the one we had before tall and gorgeous!

  12. From Karen

    I wish they would change michael back. I don’t even want to watch it with the new michael (Chad Duell. We want back Drew Garrett. They did this with Carley, ( They found Laura Wright which was the greatest).

    A guy was driving when a policeman pulled him over. He rolled down his window and said to the officer, “Is there a problem, Officer?” “No problem at all. I just observed your safe driving and am pleased to award you a $5,000 Safe Driver Award. Congratulations. What do you think you’re going to do with the money?” He thought for a minute and said, “Well, I guess I’ll go get that drivers’ license.” The lady sitting in the passenger seat said to the policeman, “Oh, don’t pay attention to him – he’s a smartass when he’s drunk and stoned.” The guy from the back seat said, “I TOLD you guys we wouldn’t get far in a stolen car!” At that moment, there was a knock from the trunk and a muffled voice said, “Are we over the border yet?”

    What happen to Drew? as Michael C.as he was so good, just as I get used to a new Michael you change actors again!!! Bring back Drew. As for Christina she need to grow up as I am sick of her crying I fast forward all scenes with her in it, I have watch GH for over 40 years!!!

  17. From Ann Stalls

    I want Drew back. I can’t see this Chad being Michael. He is just not good at all. Sorry but GH made a big mistake by firing Drew. This is not cutting it with a 30 year fan.

  18. From jean miller

    ITS DREW FOR ME OR NO GENERAL HOSPITAL FOR ME! IM YOUNG IM THE SHOWS FUTURE AND WERE LEAVING OVER THIS. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

  19. From Karen M.

    Bring Back Drew Garrett he is the only actor that can play Michael, Chad can’t Bring Back Drew…

  20. From jean miller

    ITS DREW FOR ME OR NO GENERAL HOSPITAL FOR ME. IM YOUNG IM THE SHOWS FUTURE AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE WALKING OVER THIS. GOOD LUCK

  21. From malissia

    Chadd Duell is not fit for the part of michael, drew owes that part! None of us expected to like him, looking at this blonde kid in a coma but drew plays that part to a T! And to replace him while he’s the center of a major storyline? Just boneheaded! Bring Drew back!!

  22. From Sarah

    Chad can act? Are you deaf and blind? If you are, then Chad’s acting is for you! GH should definitely fire the casting director who thought this kid was a good actor. Drew Garrett has been the only Michael who was able to carry the role so far. I watched GH for 28 years and I no longer watch due to this recast.

  23. From Jennifer

    I really don’t like the new Michael. The whole reveal about him killing Claudia was completely ruined by changing the actors at this pivotal time in the s/l. Chad does not have any chemistry with the other actors on the show.

  24. From northjrzgrl

    Chad can NOT act!!!!! We want Drew Garrett back!!!! He IS Micheal !!!!! So much for sweeps!!!!

  25. From Jessie

    Please, please, please bring back Drew Garrett as Michael!!! Chad can’t pull off Michael at all! Drew has portrayed Michael better then anyone, please bring him back!!!

  26. From amber

    Not diggen the NuMichael. Drew had a fire about him that he needs when Carly is his mom.Aj was a screw up and Sonny for a father figure I feel Drew did more than his best to play Michael. People only remeber him being upset which is not true there are many emotional scenes that kid did well. I hope he gets his Emmy “ABC can suck it”

  27. From Linda

    Im sitting here watching a recording from when Michael confessed to killing Claudia. I really don’t know what so many here are upset about; I think that Chad is doing an EXCELLENT job.

  28. From SavagePriscilla

    Every one remembers that today’s life seems to be not very cheap, nevertheless people require cash for various stuff and not every person earns big sums cash. Thus to receive some business loans or just student loan should be good solution.
