General Hospital's FLUKE Makes THE SOUP: "You Don't Deserve My Donuts!"

Courtesy/E!

Courtesy/E!

Fluke aka the fake Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) has given Joel McHale and E’s The Soup some material on last night’s episode!

General Hospital is no stranger to The Soup, where often times the satirical series has some fun at some of the antics of GH’s characters or their storylines! Here was the set-up:  Joel showed a GH clip of Fluke telling Tracy (Jane Elliot): “You can suck the joy out of a donut!” and that was juxtaposed with a clip of Fluke coming on to Kiki (Kristen Alderson) where he says to her, “What you need is a dose of Dr. Sugar!  What you need is a real man!”  While he is all over her, Kiki kicks him in the nuts to which Fluke angrily replies, “You don’t deserve my donuts!”

Watch the clip from The Soup after the jump! Did you think taken out of context it was funny?  What do you think of Fluke now?  Let us know!

I luv this Luke, it is relief from the same ‘ol..
I bet Tony and cast are laughing their azz off back stage and having fun with it..

Some soap fans are extremely serious while the actors are having fun/are not all that serious about it all ….

When you can’t have fun watching a soap then one should tune out and read a book ..
It is entertainment, cry, laugh, wonder, sigh, but enjoy..
Anyways, I find humor in Fluke!! Tony is knocking it outta the park..
((he needed a break from Luke to come alive once again ..

ITA! It’s time Tony got some material to be a bad ass! He is doing great just like the pro he is because this character makes my skin crawl! Bravo Tony!

It’s one thing to have fun it’s another thing to become a joke. I think GH’s ratings would be better if they concentrated on producing a quality daytime drama rather than doing camp and schtick to get a mention on a cable show that has a very small audience. Whatever they are going for, maybe it’s to attract younger viewers, it won’t work. There are too many better options on broadcast, cable and online for people. My guess is that most young women, who might even enjoy camp, are probably repulsed by seeing a young girl have to kick a… Read more »

Not really a good thing when you are made fun of on The Soup.

Love him or loathe him, FLuke is rapidly wearing out his welcome in Port Charles with his odious escapades. I only hope the wizened priapic predator’s jig will soon be up, and we discover the true identity of this impersonating miscreant….particularly for Kiki’s sake! I’m no great fan of KA’s character, but Puke’s increasingly pervy advances upon her person are really a discomfort to watch. It’s a shame that the girl can’t confide her tribulations with this freak to Mama Ava. She would do far more than knee his “donuts”….probably permanently alter them with her trusty pistol!

Well said, su0000, I agree 100%!

I’m getting a kick out of Fluke. Tony Geary had been hanging around with nothing to do on the show lately, so this is giving him something fun and different to play, and he’s taking the ball and running with it. I’m really enjoying the storyline, and I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes next.

Nobody is enjoying this deviant departure from the Luke we all know more than AG…that is highly apparent. He’s having the time of his life playing the creepy, sex-crazed curmudgeon to the hilt. No doubt the more salacious aspects of the character were his idea, too. But enough is enough…..

Fluke is wearing a mask! It was obvious today. Im now not so sure this is Bill Eckert but rather Jerry Jacks. Jerry would come on to Brit,Kiki,Liz etc. Jerry is evil (although he has a heart and i personnaly love him) hmmm i love that this storyline has me guessing!

Plus before Jerry left the last time the show did touch upon a connection that he had with Julian because he helped Jerry escape.Plus Jerry knows he can’t step in Port Charles as himself or he’ll be arrested on the spot.So it makes sense that he would have to impersonate someone else to move around Port Charles freely.Plus i think Anthony Geary is enjoying himself because he may know he’s not playing the real Luke and knows the fans will forgive Luke later when they learn the truth.

I think it would be incredibly boring and anticlimatic if it turns out be Jax.
The fans are really unhappy with this storyline–Fluke has sucked the joy out of doughnuts and Luke would never had done such a thing.

I would be shocked if it were Jerry; he’s never been seen as a womanizer let alone a rapist. Doesn’t “feel” like Jerry to me at all…

On another note, it is completely unfathomable to me that Tracy, Lulu, Sonny and anyone who knows Luke would believe that he’s in his right mind or the same person. I’m stretching my willingness to believe…but I’m just about at the limit before I pop!

As for doughnuts…it’s sooooo not time to make them!

Not to mention that if this were Jerry, when he encountered Samantha at the art gallery he would not have referred to her as “Sammy” but “Sweet Sam”…..you know he would not have been able to help himself! The fact that FLuke seems so oblivious to a lot of the locals and their respective “nicknames” makes me suspect this is not someone who knows Port Charles all that well.

Jerry Jacks was never an aggressive grabby woman type and wouldn’t go after Kikki in that manner..
Whomever it is would need to have Fluke’s personality, and he is far from charming or gentlemanly ….
no way is he JJ or Faison etc ..

Maybe it is Luke!! with a chemically induced brain change, or possessed, or overtaken by an Alien.. yup, could be Luke..

I hope it’s not Jerry, because while Jerry would “flirt” with all the women you speak of, he would not, nor did he ever force himself on anyone.

When Luke was first acting strange, i was the first to ask if he was Jerry Jacks and i still believe this is who he really is…what the show needs to do now is show Luke in scenes with Bobbi and im pretty sure Bobbi will be the first to figure this is not her brother and Luke/Jerry will kidnap her!!!…imo!!!

Meanwhile, i dont like how they dumbdowned Tracy by making her blinded by love…Tracy new for a long time Luke hasnt been himself and should realize there is a possibility of him coming on to Kiki instead of viceversa…i mean why wouldnt Tracy wonder after all this time would Kiki suddenly show interest in Luke? Tracy is smarter than that and should know something still isnt right about Luke and that perhaps he couldve hit on Kiki…and didnt Nik or someone overhear what he said about Britts arse and why wasnt Tracy told about it?

Another GH problem for me is the return of Maxi…instead of hanging in her apartment with that goofy Lego or whatever his name is, she should have been in scenes with Mac and Felicia welcoming her back home!!!

i dont recall bill, or jerry (wish are the two most guess characters impersonating luke) ever being pervs, womanizers, maybe, but whoever this luke is, i think its gross, the story is playing out to long, we need a reveal, or at least see the real luke being held somewhere. and whats with Morgan acting like Luke is some stranger? doesn’t he know they are related? its just so annoying seeing how this story is being played out oh and by the way, morgan needs a hair cut, a shave and thats including his back, he looks like a teenage… Read more »

Spot on about Morgan’s current grooming habits, or rather, lack thereof. It makes me wonder if there has been a memo circulated that encouraged the male cast members to join the “Stubble and Beard Brigade.” So many (including Morgan, Nathan, Lucas, Franco, Julian, and particularly Patrick-yuck!) have recently adopted the more hirsute look and that is not a good thing. As if Car-LOS!, the slovenly hitman, didn’t provide enough of that “razorless rebel” vibe….

I didn’t find it funny in or out of context. The writing is just painfully juvenile. Calling it sophomoric would be overly generous. RC and his team lack the deft touch to mix comedy and drama in a way that’s relatable. I don’t get how RC doesn’t get that The Soup is about singling out the worst of the worst of TV rather than praising their cleverness. They’re laughing at Ron (and soap fans in general ) rather than laughing WITH us . Don’t see that as good PR and feel kind of sheepish for watching at all. Making “The… Read more »

soap drama is real life it is campy..
Dont take soaps so seriously, they are fiction..
if you can’t have fun, laugh at the silly or humor , and enjoy it, tune out..
dont punish yourself by watching it.. 🙂

and- soap fans have been laughed at and joked about and made fun of from day one..
and when we see how some of the soap fans act, think about it, we are laughable ….
NO gener acts like soap fans, we have a reputation, ya know..

GH shows up on Soup every now and then. When Britch threw Emma’s doll on the grill it made it to Talk Soup. Its a good thing. There are three other soaps I never see on that show. It could be that its poking fun at GH but I see it as a way to attract new viewers who are intrigued by outlandish behavior, as well.

B&B has been on there for a while. Mainly when Ridge knocked Rick off the roof of the Forrester building and yelled, “Riiiiiiick!!”

Ronn Moss and Kyle Lowder, who played Ridge and Rick at the time, have both been on “The Soup” with Joel a couple times for B&B. It was hilarious.

As much as I dislike Faux Luke; that line was hysterical. I laughed out loud while at the gym watching it. Love seeing little Spencer interact with Faux Luke. That little guy can really deliver whether in scenes with other child actors or powerhouse greats like Maurice, Tony, and Tyler. Two things I can’t stand about this storyline-Tracy looking like an idiot and more useless Kiki-such a waste of precious air-time!

Dear God, not another mask. I hope it’s Bill back from the dead and the real Luke is just tied up somewhere in Miscavige waiting to be rescued.

I think Jerry took the real Luke to formulate another dose of anti-polonium serum from his antibodies….when Spencer was initially imprisoned in Miscavage, they were drawing his blood when he was taken from the room at regular intervals (as Scotty mentioned.) However, in the end, it was probably just easier to bring the mountain (Luke) to Mohammed (Jerry) so when FLuke the imposter was ready to replace the original, they shipped off the genuine article to Mr. Jacks’ latest hideaway.

Since I don’t watch GH or Days, I learn a lot about them from McHale’s “The Soup.” I loved the relish fiasco that went on for a while. I have no idea what it was about, but OMG, if it was half as funny on the air as it was on “The Soup,” it must have been good viewing! I also love that McHale has had several of the stars on the show from B&B, including Ronn Moss and Kyle Lowder, who played Ridge and Rick Forrester a couple years ago. When Ridge knocked Rick off the Forrester Creations rooftop,… Read more »

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

Courtesy/ABC

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

Courtesy/ABC

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
