Has anyone watched General Hospital: Night Shift, season two yet?
I haven’t mainly because I absolutely HATED season one…..absolutely hated it for various reasons. Click here to read my blog that I wrote last year about season one.
But, I must say, that the recaps for the first two episodes sounded interesting….and entertaining.
Let’s not forget, Antonio Sabato Jr. reprises his GH role from long ago as Jagger Cates.
(Yes, you can stop reading long enough to wipe the drool off your chin.)
As episode three is about to air tonight 11 p.m. EST on SOAPnet, I will absolutely have to tune in.
Why, you ask?
Because the legendary Tristan Rogers, aka Robert Scorpio, makes his debut tonight on Night Shift….and I must confess I’m excited.
Excited because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love Robert Scorpio, the Super Sexy, Super Charming, Super Spy from the Luke and Laura days on General Hospital.
And, yeah, Tristan Rogers is still super sexy at 62.

How do I know this, you ask?

Because I’ve been face-to-face with him twice in the past two years.

And he’s totally charming…much like the character he plays.
I met him November 2006 at Super Soap Weekend, when I was thrilled to pull his fast pass and meet him up close and personal.
The following April, he came to the Palm Beach International Film Festival for a debut of his short film “Opportunity Knocks.”
I interviewed him and wrote a story – as part of my real job – as a reporter for the “Palm Beach Daily News.”
You know how some men look better as they age?
He’s one of those.
In a blog he posted on his MySpace page, Tristan asks his fans to give NS2 a chance and says it’s much different than season one.
He says his character is as “kick ass” as ever. But he doesn’t say anything about what’s going to happen during Scorpio’s reemergence in Port Charles.
According to TV Guide, Robert Scorpio comes to General Hospital with “a major health issue that’ll have him grappling with his mortality.”
I’m looking forward to the interaction between Robert and his daughter, Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough), which should be interesting in light of the fact that Robin is now pregnant.
At any rate, I’m tuning in tonight and I think you should too.
After all, it’s a two-fer.
Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Tristan Rogers.
Throw in Jason Thompson as Dr. Patrick Drake and you’ve got a hat trick.
How can you go wrong with those three on your screen?

    Hi Michele,
    I have been watching and I just think this season has been awful! They are trying too hard to make it more Grey’s Anatomy and less GH. If you are a die hard GH fan, you probably will hate it. We can only pray that the writers will get with the program and stop showing the stupid interns that I personally don’t have any interest in. Also, why the heck did they change Dr. Leo? Where is Lainey and Kelly? They need some help writing STAT…or this mike likely be the last season anyone will be working the Nightshift.

    Hi Lola,
    I did watch and I really wasn’t interested in all the new young interns.
    The only interesting parts were with Robert Scorpio and his interaction with Robin and Patrick.
    I also liked the Jagger/Robin scenes.
    But the rest was just boring.
