BEST USE OF HISTORY|
PC'S SCOTT CROSSES OVER, GENERAL HOSPITAL
GH has always excelled at mining its 37-year history. So, it was little surprise that when the powers-that-be decided to "borrow" Scott Baldwin from spin-off PORT CHARLES, it would be a huge it. To begin with, Scott - and his devilishly appealing portrayer, Kin Shriner - are already such an integral part of the GH canvas that the return of both required no transition. GH inserted Scott in the storyline from whence he came (the doings of Luke and Laura) by having him serve as the hilariously reluctant defense lawyer to thorn-in-the-side Luke and sympathetic supporter to ex-wife Laura - but hardly dwelled on the past. What we saw was the updated version of Scott's relationship with his lifelong compatriots; that not only has this character endured, he has flourished. Once again, viewers are reminded that Shriner's Scott is a part of GH history - and he still knows how to make his own.
