‘The Good Wife’: Real Gangsters

Who is the biggest gangster on “The Good Wife?” Is it Will (Josh Charles), who is determined to turn Lockhart-Gardner into a nationwide legal empire? Is it the message board poster in this week’s case who proclaims himself “gangsta”? Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary stole numerous Lockhart-Gardner clients, which gives them some street cred. In this […]

Deep Soap: ‘Days of Our Lives’ Greg Vaughn & Arianne Zucker on Their Characters’ Taboo Relationship

The Catholic church should send “Days of Our Lives” a gift basket. Handsome, ethical, kind Father Eric (Greg Vaughn) has been the best advertisement for the church in ages. While Nicole (Arianne Zucker) fell in love with him, he remained focused on his vocation, unaware that Kristen (Eileen Davidson) drugged and sexually assaulted him. The truth […]

‘Revenge’: You Can’t Keep A Good Mistress Down

Last week, Emily (Emily VanCamp) made sure that Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) knew she had an ex-husband. On this week’s episode of “Revenge,” “Secrecy,” we got the rather anticlimactic payoff. Fortunately, the surprise comeback more than made up for it, as did Nolan and Aiden becoming roomies. Read on for a wedding shower, a hand- me-down sex apartment, […]

Deep Soap: ‘Days of Our Lives’ James Scott & Alison Sweeney on an ‘Ejami’ Wedding

Even by soap couple standards, “Days of Our Lives” couple Sami and E.J. — EJami to their fans — have been through a lot. Over the years, they have shot each other, had their baby swapped with someone else’s, and a faux marriage to satisfy the terms of a long-standing vendetta between their families. Every […]

‘Scandal’: Everything You Thought You Knew About Mellie Was Wrong

It’s easy to hate Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young). She’s the mean-spirited Stepford First Lady who is the major personal obstacle in Olivia and Fitz’s relationship. This week’s episode of “Scandal,” “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie,” upended the audience’s perception of the character by revealing the horrible sacrifices that she made to get where she is. Also, in […]
