    Oh, what a great picture of JJ… now if the GH writers would write a story that would make him smile like that I would be so much more interested in what’s going on with Lucky Spencer.

    Hmmm. I only see one episode after the 1990’s which is when Lucky was a very likable character. TIIC did way TOO much damage to Lucky after the role was taken over by JY and GV. JJ’s version of Lucky cries way too much now that he’s back in the role.

    I love Jonathan Jackson, and for me, he is the ONLY Lucky!! I feel that I have grown up with him, LITERALLY, since we are only three months apart in age. I wasn’t actively watching GH back in the 90s during his heyday, but I have seen ALL of his Emmy wins on YouTube.

    I also happen to think he’s pretty damned cute!!

    But remember to bring your tissues, folks. There’s bound to be a lot of crying involved!!! :D

    I love Jonathan Jackson. :) And yeah, for me he’s the only Lucky too. But this character needs to be written in a better way. JJ deserves so much better than the crap they’ve giving him over the last months.

    I’ll always love JJ. The ’93 and ’96 episodes feel like yesterday for me, too. But they do need to rehab his character a bit. Thinking bout these old episodes (and how he used to be), is all the more reason why.

    What a great idea for us viewers who are sickened by GH right now. The Wendy Riche produced episodes have infinitely more heart and soul than anything we’ve seen in a decade. And I can’t wait to relive the heightened Claire Labine dialogue from the Frank Smith episode. Fun!!!

    I love soap’s always so nice to go back and watch the good episodes.
    Although I am not a Lucky fan not with JJ anywho…

    I am guessing though since JJ is now back I would imagine all the episodes there playing would be JJ…plus the dates are around original JJ time.
    Kinda funny to see all the episode are the 90’s except for Jake’s death…which we could do without seeing again.

    I really look forward to the 1996 one…seeing my cute Tyler again!
    I miss Nikolas although i’m liking him on the lying game.
