No, this isn’t this week’s installment of Fun in the Afternoon. Sorry.
Here’s the thing: watching old General Hospital clips on YouTube is like opening a bag of potato chips — you swear you’re just going to grab one, but then suddenly it’s three hours later and you’re staring at an empty bag, wiping crumbs off your chin and feeling a little sick.
Er, not that that’s ever happened to me.
Anyway, the point is it doesn’t matter if I know exactly which clip I’m looking for. Somehow, I always end up clicking on another one, and another one…and then, oh look! There’s a link to the entire Sonny and Brenda Canada adventure! Or all 26 parts of Jagger, Karen, and Jason shipwrecked on the island! And the next thing I know, it’s two o’clock in the morning and I haven’t even started writing the post yet.
All of which is to say the next installment will come next week and be posted biweekly thereafter, so as to leave a little more time for YouTube binges on our part.
I could go on a long rant about the way present day Luke’s retconned disdain for fatherhood, family, fidelity, and his first born son is complete and utter bullshit, but I think I’ll just let the clips above speak more eloquently than I ever could.
Suck it, Guza.
