THE BABY SWITCH, ALL MY CHILDREN/ONE LIFE TO LIVE
In daytime, what makes a secret compelling is how much its revelation will affect a show's community - and by that measure, the scribes of the future will have a tough time topping the labyrinthine double-show doozy that was "AMC's Bess is Really Miranda/OLTL's Ace is Really the Son of AMC's Babe and JR."
While we brayed at how long it took the secret(s) to wend toward full disclosure, in truth the saga of who was concealing the infants' identities and why (an ever-growing list with an impressive array of justifications) - and bravura performances from both casts - more than maintained our interest. We complained because we cared - especially about AMC's Bianca getting her baby back. No matter how large the story grew in scope, its focus remained laser-sharp, building to that moment. And if it proves to be worth the wait, consider AMC a lock for 2005's "Best Payoff."
