Thanks A Lot
Few and far between nowadays are the social-issues storylines at which soaps once excelled. So we applaud GH for tackling sexual harassment in the workplace via Kiki and Dr. Bensch. The fact that the tale managed to be ripped from the headlines without sounding like an
ABC AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL shows that soaps are still a powerful medium.
You know that saying “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”? It doesn’t apply here. We knew the treasure that GH had in veteran leading lady Genie Francis before her character dropped out of the mayoral race and headed off to Europe for months. So, as you’d expect, we were beside ourselves with gratitude this fall when the Emmy winner brought Laura home.
“Do you swear to tell the whole truth and… Dr. Bensch, would you kindlyre-dress me with your eyes?” Laura returned dressed to kill. Which was not a good idea, with Ryan running around loose at the time!
