Starting this week on General Hospital, Lucky Spencer is taking over the life of an Irish Gangster that he happens to look identical to that has died in order to help Interpol do...I don't know. Something. Not even Interpol seemed to know wtf he was supposed to be doing.

Anyway. And it occured to me that that plotline sounded so very freaking familiar to me, and I could not figure out why. Until right this second. When I realised that it was the plot of a season of Due South.

Anyway, the idea of Lucky Spencer taking over the life of a deceased Irish Gangster Assassin (named Ronan O'Reily natch) is so ridiculously funny to me. Even if only for the fact that he already sounds like he stepped right out of the pages of a 1950s sitcom that occasionally veers into an episode of Mad Men. I mean, it's not like the show's going to make him suddenly use modern day swearing, so this The Balkan (!) guy that will probably turn out to be a missing Cassadine or Emily Quartermaine or something ridonkulous is going to have to contend with his "Irish Assassin" saying things like:

"Listen to me. Listen to me. You can't listen to me when you're yelling."

"Subtlety is, "That sweater looks pretty". When what you really mean is, "I love your mouth". Wtf, Lucky what're you, Don Draper? He was SEVENTEEN WHEN HE SAID THIS.

"I'll be there, wouldn't miss it. Nikolas and Elizabeth, I don't think they're gonna be able to make it, though, because they'll be too busy rutting like farm animals."

At least they got this right. This is, in fact, the face someone who has been asked to do this should have:
