I love that BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL's Ridge and Brooke traipsed down to the city clerk's office to obtain a marriage license.

There was a reason this week's MAD MEN was called "Fathers and Sons": because it was all about 'em. The episode opened with Horace, the son of wealthy shipping magnate, eager to blow his inheritance on a bid to popularize jai alai. The fact that many of you don't even know what that is (let alone how it's spelled) indicates what a pipe dream that was. But we're looking at it with 40 years of hindsight. I almost laughed out loud when Horace demanded to show jai alai on all three networks at the same time.The '60s really were an idealistic time, eh?

It's a Wonderful Life — well, at least it seems that way on GUIDING LIGHT, lately. I was reminded of that Frank Capra classic because today's episode was so heavy on feelings of despair and then redemption.

Now that's hot! Bravo, Denis Leary and Peter Tolan! I was shocked and awed by the spectacular fifth-season finale to RESCUE ME, which featured a truly harrowing cliffhanger.

The good news about the Daytime Emmys was that the show moved at an entertaining clip. The bad news was the lack of actual clips.

The first-season finale of ROYAL PAINS was a microcosm of the series as a whole — and a lot like HankMed itself: appealing, but not nearly as clever as it thinks it is.

I am distressed to see GUIDING LIGHT devoting so much of what little time it has left to shoehorn Cyrus not only into storylines, but families.

I have to admit I did not see the shocking end of the MAKE IT OR BREAK IT season finale coming! The-powers-that-be apparently took the show's title literally, because Payson broke her back when she fell from the uneven bars.

This week I realized how much I missed MAD MEN thanks to a tiny little scene that most people probably sailed right past. Don and Betty were having a conversation in their bedroom. Suddenly the kids started making a ruckus.

Well, we finally know why GENERAL HOSPITAL's Kate was sneaking page layouts out of the Crimson offices. No, wait. Make that, we know what Kate was doing with the materials — showing editorial content to Giselle before publication — but not why she was taking page layouts.
