    Good morning

    The evil, scheming, elegant Helena is back. I'm not surprised she was able to turn the tables on Luke and Laura so quickly, the story would be over if they got all the answers they wanted and found Lulu. What was made clear for me, which i suspected, with that neck snapping action of Helena's at learning that Nicholas was shot, is that there is more than one villain involved in this story.
    This is JMO, but now that Luke is with Laura again, TG's age is really apparent and he is going to need more reinforcements to go up against the villains, he can't do it by wit alone. Here's hoping Dante gets Luke and Laura out of this jam.
    I like that Liz was open and honest with AJ about her involvement with Nicholas. Neither one is going into this relationship without knowing the worst of each other and is a great way to redeem both characters.
    It seems Frisco can't handle the truth, he is an absentee father. Mac didn't deserve the punch for speaking the truth, I guess they're even now. Felicia needs to make a decision already.
    I often think TPTB play a certain scene or story to get viewers talking, as they recently did with Emma and this story with Ellie not wanting children.
    This is a real issue that many face and won't back down on. As much as I don't like SpinEllie together, I'd rather they separate on a friendly note and move on to other people.

    OT

    Happy Easter. Have a great weekend everybody.

    Cynic- I don't so much think its that Spinelli's in that much of a hurry based on what he said to AJ. Its more about Ellie comment given she made it sounds like she doesn't want to have kids at all... but Spinelli could have mistook what she said.

    Marathon. Just wish they did not jump around on episodes anyone watching that did not see back then will be totally confused

    Have a good Easter everyone

    Watching the marathon...so sad what Luke has become. Once he was courageous, witty, loyal, tender, unselfish. Now he is bitter, caustic, sarcastic, narcissistic, no heart. Laura deserves more but not Scotty. He is still the same jerk and only sees Laura as the prize that got away. I miss the old Luke. Yes, he loves Lucky and Lulu in his own way but the new Luke drops them to take off for months at a time and they have no idea what he's up to. Now Lucky has abandoned his children to 'find himself'. His character deserved better. Still, this is so much fun going down memory lane.

    For the posters who were not watching GH in the 1990's one of the best and saddest episodes is when B.J. (Barbara Jean) dies and Maxie gets her heart. I definitely will be watching it later today at 5 pm central time.

    I, for one, am loving the SoapNet GH Marathon, especially seeing how Luke and Laura's relationship has evolved throughout their history. I thought it was interesting seeing the way Luke was portrayed when he first came on the scene, and before the turning point of Laura's rape. He was much more violent, temperamental, and impulsive back then, but later, as the great Tony Geary developed the character, Luke became more of a smooth operator, with a clever wit, and a definite edge. Even though he's not as quick, nor as nimble as he once was thirty years ago (and who among us is?), he still retains all those unique qualities today.

    In no particular order, we were able to see this legendary couple when they first met, as they tried to deny their initial attraction to each other, then their wedding to end all weddings, followed by their triumphant return to Port Charles after years on the run. Luke and Laura's odyssey, featuring them going over waterfalls, and literally crashing a wedding reception by jumping off a helicopter ladder into a swimming pool is still as exciting today as it was when I saw it the first time around.

    Then, we were allowed to eavesdrop while Luke and (mostly) Laura explained to Lucky where babies come from (although surprisingly, Liz's name never came up), and later Laura's poignant, and heartbreaking performance as she portrayed a woman shocked to learn how much she had missed upon seeing her children for the first time after waking up from a four year coma. It simply doesn't get any better than that.

    I was again stuck by how young Laura (17), and later Brenda (24) were when they debuted on GH. They were both stunningly beautiful, but I was also impressed by their acting chops so early in their careers. That's something that Nuke should take note of, and don't even get me started comparing Rafe's lack of thespian skills to those of a MUCH younger Lucky, as played by an 11-year old Jonathan Jackson. I'll just say there IS no comparison, and leave it at that.

    It's wonderful seeing some of my all-time faves like Lois and Ned again, and there were some other things that I had forgotten. At the time of Luke and Laura's wedding, Lila was still on her feet instead of in a wheelchair, and seeing Ruby again made me realize how much Luke depended on her for the kind of unconditional love and support he never got from his parents. It was also funny to see how mature women like Audrey were reduced to giggling schoolgirls in the presence of a twenty something Ricky Martin, sporting shoulder length hair, and slinging drinks behind Mac's bar. I had also forgotten that the uber evil Frank Smith was played by the same actor who played the lecherous, old has-been soap actor in the movie "Tootsie." I'll bet that was typecasting, because he was a TERRIBLE actor on GH, which is probably why I purged him from my memory. Fortunately, he was the exception to the rule. Leslie, Amy, Robert, Monica and Alan consistently turned in stellar work, even with some of the more outlandish storylines, like the infant AJ having “Bombay Syndrome,” a rare, but real life condition which made his blood type different from that of his parents. That only happens in three out of a million cases, but it was enough to prove that Alan was indeed AJ's biological father, much to Monica's relief. It was a real stretch, but it beats brain cramps and toxic balls, that's for sure.

    I was afraid that my fond memories of how great the show was back then were colored by what's commonly referred to as “good old days” syndrome – where everything from our youth seems better than anything we have today. I worried that perhaps I had built up the greatness of these shows in my mind to the point where they couldn't possibly still hold up after all this time, and live up to my expectations. I feared that I'd be disappointed seeing them again, but I'm very pleased to report that the Golden Age of GH was even BETTER than I had remembered, and the show deserves every bit of praise it's getting, and then some.

    What an embarrassment of riches General Hospital has in it's fabled history, and how wonderful it is to be able to revisit those times and see all those faces again. What a great show!

    I know this appears to be a Spencer adventure. Hypothetically what if is was one of Dantes enemies? I mean he is not perfect and prior to the pcpd he worked elsewhere. Was worth a thought.
