Trivia

After the cancellation of Port Charles several cast members transferred to General Hospital as new characters and this show's storylines were forgotten. Ten years later in 2013 General Hospital at last addressed this show when Lynn Herring's Lucy Coe mistook Kelly Monaco's Sam McCall for Livvie Locke and Michael Easton's John McBain for Easton's Port Charles Vampire King Caleb Morley (attempting to stake him in the heart with a wood chair leg). The show also reintroduced Erin Hershey Presley's Allison and answered the question of Alison's pregnancy which was left on a cliffhanger when Port Charles was cancelled. See more »

Underrated Soap
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe this show was not given enough of a chance by that idiot Frons. It should still be on the air and ABC should have programmed it between "One Life to Live" and "General Hospital" so it didn't have to compete with Y&R - this was the problem plaguing shows as far back as "Ryan's Hope" in the 11:30 time slot. While I really did enjoy the 1997-2000 "regular format", the arcs were a definite bold move in the right direction - very innovative and certainly nothing that was being done by any other show! I especially loved "Time in A Bottle", "Tainted Love", "Secrets", and "Surrender". Not such a fan of the one where Alison became a vampire bride, but they were coming back. The least they could have done was a finale!!! Thanks a lot Frons - you jerk!
