Picks and Pans Review: Soap Milestone

>Two decades in real time is an infinity of tragedy, love, betrayal and perfidy in soap time. On Jan. 5 (1 P.M. ET), All My Children celebrates 20 years on the air with a special retrospective in which the show's five charter cast members (Ray MacDonnell, Frances Heflin, Mary Fickett, Ruth Warrick and Susan Lucci) shatter convention and TV's fourth wall by talking directly to the audience. Clips will bring back all the great romantic couples over the years: Phil/Tara, Chuck/Tara, Brooke/Tom, Nina/ Cliff, Jenny/Greg, Jesse/Angie, etc. Of course, no stroll down Pine Valley's memory lane would be complete without lots and lots of Erica (Lucci) and her inexhaustibly manipulative wiles. Congrats, All My Children. Many happy and heartbreaking returns.
