13 April 5th, 2015 GH True Port Charles Story: Luke Spencer … Video Recap Of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Of The Iconic Character!


Last week, viewers were witness to the long held secret of the Spencer family that only Patricia Spencer (Dee Wallace) and Luke (Anthony Geary) had known, only Luke repressed the memories of the fateful night when he murdered his father and accidentally killed his mother!  After GH fans finally understood what caused Luke to be “Fluke”, the process begins for him to heal.

As a tribute to the twists and turns of the most iconic of all soap opera characters, General Hospital put together a video retrospective done as a riff on E!’s True Hollywood Story, on the life and times of Luke Spencer going all the way back to his childhood beginnings through today.

From his life with Laura (Genie Francis) and life on the run, to his alcoholism and running over little Jake, to the feud with the Cassadines, to his psychotic breakdown and the Fluke story, it’s all contained within this four minute plus video.

    Most all his stories have been good…especially from the late 70s to early 80s…

    The most coveted rating is; the 18-49 demographic..
    soaps are written primarily for those numbers..
    Most were not even born yet; 70′s and early 80′s..
    so they don’t care about the good old days LOL :)

    GH rocks!!
    the 52nd was more than great !!! watched it twice ..

    Su—sorry but you are wrong…i have a neice in that demo who does care about each characters history and i know others here like CeeCee who is always happy to learn something about the show’s history…plus MF asked our favorite Luke storyline and did not say from the last five years…had you not missed the soaps at their best you would be singing a different tune but unfortunately you werent there so there is no way you can honestly compare the 70s to the 80s to soaps today! But im glad you are part of soaps today and enjoy GH…soaps futures depend on your age group to keep the genre alive…and im glad i came from the generation who made this happen for you!!!…always love your enthusiam for GH!!!

    Just check youtube comments for that demographic for clips dating backing to this era – Luke and Laura especially – that delight in the good ole days…myself included.

    su0000 replied

    You are right, Jimh
    I have talked with others who have no idea who Luke and Laura were etc..
    I only know because reading about it/them, but millions do not come to the soap boards, just us very special fans do lol :)

    I hope ALL the soaps never die; just like rock & roll !!

    CeeCee replied

    You go, Jimh. You rock! Not only do I absorb everything you write, but I love hearing about the soaps’ history and especially the lavish stories both my grrandmothers relate to me.
    Then again jimh, I am an old soul at heart…LOL.

    Pretty good synopsis of so many years. Annoying, though i have no use for the Cassadines, that Stavros’s name kept being pronounces Starvros or something like that.


  4. Timmm says:

    What a resume! The legendary Anthony Geary!


  5. Erick says:

    “Stravos” Cassadine? Lol


    E.J. DiMera replied

    LOL. EXACTLY! For a proper tribute, dude (narrator), get your FACTS straight! It’s Stavros dork, not Stravos. I was appalled when the narrator first said the name wrong. That’s very insulting to we long time fans of over 30 years!

    My favorite storyline is the favorite of TG and Genie Francis: Luke and Laura on the run, with rapid-fire dialogue a la Frank Capra and “It Happened One Night.” (See Genie Francis and TG talk about this in their interviews for the American Academy of Television.) Watch on Youtube. It was, as they say, the 2 characters “against the world,” a “Romeo and Juliet” takeoff, taking with them an audience that felt they were there. That’s drama!


  7. k/kay says:

    My favorite they have not filmed yet! Luke’s exit never to be seen or heard about again! Just kidding ! I could not help myself the devil made me say that! Probably in all seriousness would be Luke & Laura’s 15th wedding anniversary and they were down in the Catacombs dancing because everyone thought they were estranged! Sorry I’m a sucker for romance!
