General Hospital Flashback: Jonathan Jackson as Lucky Spencer

Jonathan Jackson returns as Lucky Spencer tomorrow, so in honor of his return I dug up some classic clips from YouTube. I started watching General Hospital in 1998, so many of these scenes and storylines are what helped to hook me on the show. After the jump, you'll find clips of Lucky finding out from Nicholas that Luke raped his mother, Lucky confronting Laura about the rape, Lucky visiting Tammy the hooker, Lucky and Elizabeth dealing with her rape, Lucky and Elizabeth promos and even one or two fan-made music montages. It is a trip down memory lane for GH fans who watched back then and hopefully will be helpful to newer viewers who have never watched Jonathan Jackson. Enjoy! READ MORE

General Hospital Spoilers!

Here’s the Scoop! 10.02.09

I dropped a few comments on things this AM. One being that Rachel Ames aka Audrey Webber is set to come out of retirement to help her granddaughter Elizabeth out of jam. Is the jam Helena created? Was that the big return? No, Audrey has been living off camera ever since Ames retired. It’s been RUMORED a few times that Audrey would be popping back into PC with some fans even campaigning for the character’s death. A little morbid IMO to campaign for a longtime character’s death but hey to each their own. An Audrey appearance, Jonathan Jackson’s return and an affair with her ex’s brother… looks like Elizabeth Webber is off the backburner. Thankfully she wasn’t there too long. I know, I know, my fan affiliation is showing but then again, I’ve never tried to hide it. READ MORE

Luke and Laura On EW.Com's List of Pop Culture's Best Lovers released a list of 26 True (Fictional) Lovers: Best Pop Culture Lovers. Among them are names like Rhett and Scarlett, Lancelot and Guinivere, Carrie and Big and...Luke and Laura. To borrow from Chandler Bing, could there be any more reasons for Brian Frons to get over his "Chicks over 40 ain't hot" crap and beg Genie Francis to return fulltime? Seriously, what more does the mainstream media have to do to drive home the point that this woman helped save the damn genre, put her face on Time magazine? I mean she's no Elisabeth Hasselbeck (but then who is?) but from what I hear she once helped cause a few people to watch General Hospital.

Francis on Lucci's Pay Cut: "They Want To Send a Message to All of Us"

Daytime legend Genie Francis spoke to TV's Matt Mitovich about reprising her role in the sequel to her hit Hallmark movie The Note, for The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love (airing this Sat. at 9 pm ET), and of course the subject of her signature role as General Hospital's Laura Spencer came up, as well as a rather frank discussion about the state of daytime as a whole. Here's what Francis had to say about the firings of her former Days leading man Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall, and her one-time AMC costar Susan Lucci's paycut being made public: READ MORE

Catching Up with Genie Francis

The sequel to Genie Francis' Hallmark Channel movie The Note, The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love premieres on Saturday, January 31. With the success of The Note, a second installment turns this into a franchise for Genie and a way to move on from her iconic role as Laura Spencer on General Hospital.  In a recent interview, Francis speaks about her time on General Hospital and the opening paragraph seems to insinuate that a return to Port Charles is not likely. 

Genie Francis figures the time has come for everyone to leave Laura Spencer behind and face the fact that the little teenager who captured the heart of America in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s is gone and is never coming back – but that a 46-year-old actress named Genie Francis is ready for her close up, Mr. DeMille.
