MOST IMPROVED SHOW|
ALL MY CHILDREN
With wan pairings like Maggie and Henry and clunker "plots" like the search for America's sexiest man, AMC slogged through most of 2003. The show became more watchable when Head Writer Megan McTavish returned, but it was clear that the messes she inherited would take some time to clean up. Her efforts paid off in 2004. Not every story worked, but there were far more hits than misses - and given the sorry state that AMC was in last year, that's a batting average to be proud of. These days, the show feels...well, like itself again: rich in history, rich in family, rich in emotion. A stellar cast of well-used vets (David Canary's Adam! Michael E. Knight's Tad!) and zestful newbies (Bobbie Eakes's Krystal! Leven Rambin's Lily!) completes the picture, making today's Pine Valley a consistently pleasurable place to visit. McTavish and company's mission wasn't easy - they just made it look that way.
