“All My Children” and “One Life to Live” are back, and they are really, really good. As corny as it sounds, I, and everyone else who loves these shows, has regained a part of our lives that we thought was lost forever. I anticipated that I would be thrilled to finally get some resolution to […]
How do you sum up fifty years in an hour?
