‘General Hospital’ at 60: What Happened in the Very First Episode

Two long-running, hospital-set soaps — ABC’s General Hospital and NBC’s The Doctors — debuted on the same day on April 1, 1963. The Doctors ran for nearly 20 years, but General Hospital has lasted three times as long — and counting! ABC is honoring the show with a primetime special, General Hospital: 60 Years of Stars and Storytelling, but the General Hospital that started that day in 1963 is very different from the show fans see today.

Gay men sound off on the need to confront transphobia among other gay men

Hang out on Reddit long enough, and you’ll eventually see transphobic attitudes show up—explicitly and implicitly—in queer communities on the platform. And social media is, of course, a microcosm of a society which some think LGB equality is an acceptable substitute for LGBT equality. One Reddit user recently shed light on transphobia in the gay male population, saying that although he loves being gay and trans, his interactions with cis gay men “[have], by and large, been less than ideal.”

Robotic Acting? 10 Stars Who Went Android on Television

Alexander Skarsgård is taking a turn for the mechanical with his latest TV role, having signed on to executive produce and star in Murderbot as “a self-hacking security android who is horrified by human emotion yet drawn to its vulnerable ‘clients.'" And like some of the actors here, Skarsgård might find that it’s not always easy playing an android on screen. Here are other TV stars with synthetic entries on their filmographies…

‘The Powerpuff Girls’ Turns 25, and the Franchise Is Still Going Strong

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup zoomed onto TV screens 25 years ago, as Cartoon Network’s The Powerpuff Girls debuted on November 18, 1998. These days, the Powerpuff Girls live on only in reruns and streaming libraries. But with new comic books and even a new TV show in the pipeline, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup will be back with new stories faster than you can say “Fuzzy Lumpkins.”

The Tennessee Titans Were Once the Houston Oilers — Why Did They Change Names?

You NFL fans out there might have tried adjusting your television sets on Oct. 29, 2023, as the Tennessee Titans wore uniforms in the colors of their predecessors, the Houston Oilers, in a nod to the team’s beginnings. So, why did the Oilers change their name anyway? As football historians know, the Oilers switched cities and got a new nickname following a falling-out between the late team owner Bud Adams and the city of Houston. Here’s how it all went down…

See ‘Life on Our Planet’ With These Stunning Nature Docuseries (VIDEO)

For a show titled Life on Our Planet, the new docuseries debuting on Netflix on October 25 certainly dwells on death a lot. The filmmakers focus on five extinction events in Earth’s tumultuous history, using Hollywood-level visual effects to depict those cataclysms. And the show is just the latest in a long line of big-budget nature docuseries. Here are others that bring the whole planet into your living room.

Remembering ‘Port Charles,’ 20 Years After the ‘General Hospital’ Spinoff’s End

At the end of the 20th century, broadcast networks were still giving the green light to daytime dramas, including Port Charles, a half-hour spinoff of ABC’s long-running hit General Hospital. The series, created by Wendy Riche, lasted only six years — GH has already run ten times as long — but it had made a lasting impression with soap fans by the time it ended two decades ago.

It’s not even autumn, but the pumpkin spice gays are out, proud & on the prowl

Put away your reusable iced coffee straw and pick up that reusable hot coffee cozy: It’s officially Pumpkin Spice Season. Of course, it’s well documented that pumpkin spice products are quite literally popping with gay consumers—pumpkin spice poppers were a thing back in 2019. In fact, pumpkin spice lattes are so gay that some straight men feel insecure even ordering them, as Vice reported in 2017. (Sending them our thoughts and prayers.)
