Emmy Week Flashback: When Lucky Spencer Wasn't a Dim Bulb
As longtime General Hospital viewers know, the talented Jonathan Jackson won three (!) Daytime Emmys in the Younger Actor category for his portrayal of Lucky Spencer. I like Greg Vaughn quite a bit (he is way hot) and enjoy his portrayal of Lucky (he is way hot), but I do miss the days when you didn't have to worry that Lucky might walk into a room and not be able to decipher how to get back out. I know that's about the writing and not the performance, but unfortunately now I associate the dumbing-down of the character with the recast(s). (Things might be picking up in that department, though; I thoroughly enjoyed Lucky calling Spinelli out on his creepy obsession with baby Jake yesterday. Also, Greg Vaughn is way hot.)
Anyway, here are some great clips from back when it was evident Lucky was Luke and Laura's kid: Flashback that includes some of his first scenes on the show, meeting Ruby. Lucky meets Emily. Not long after that; Lucky's dog Foster gets hit by a car. Liz and Lucky's first kiss. JJ and Tony Geary's final scenes together before The Fire.
Much like many of you, I am totally rooting for the other Luke 'n' Laura offspring to win on Friday. Julie Marie Berman is great, even if a lot of the writing for her of late has been pretty shrill and about as subtle as . . . well about as subtle as the GH writers know how to be. By which I mean not at all subtle, not even a little.
