I Can't Stop Watching This Super-Intense Mexican Soap Opera Clip

This clip from the telenovela María la del Barrio is four minutes of extreme hysteria in which a teenage girl in a wheelchair gets kissed on the cheek, setting a woman off on a violent, murderous rampage.

The All My Children Finale Was Crap.

Today we bid adieu to the town of Pine Valley, and as someone who grew up with and continued to watch the series in throughout adulthood, I must admit that I'm a little sad.

A Preview Of Bloody James Franco On General Hospital Set

Here's a kind-of gruesome photo of an upcoming scene from General Hospital that has James Franco back in the role of Robert "Franco" Frank. The scene: Franco on the ground with blood everywhere around him, Jason Morgan with a gun in his hand, serious faces. The gun may or may not have belonged to Jason.

Susan Lucci Gives Poorly Timed "Erica Kane Makeovers"

The Gods of Daytime Syndication must have been laughing yesterday when a pre-taped segment on the Nate Berkus Show giving makeovers to the All My Children-obsessed aired just hours after news of the show's cancellation broke. » 4/15/11 1:35pm 4/15/11 1:35pm
