The Guide to Weekend TV: Sundance's Appropriate Adult, A Bag of Bones, and More!

First, weighing in on two cable movies, one of which thoroughly chilled me and another that left me cold.

Lifetime Delivers a Memorable Daughter

In classic page-turner fashion, The Memory Keeper's Daughter opens on a dark and snowy night, with a fateful childbirth, the implications of which resonate over the next 20 years of secrets and lies, joys and sorrows. Lifetime chose well in adapting Kim Edwards' best-seller, which tells the best kind of what-would-you-do yarn. If the TV-movie is more labored and less affecting than the emotionally taut novel, it's ultimately satisfying and is just the sort of high-end tearjerker Lifetime should continue making. The story's irresistible hook comes early, as Dr. David Henry (Dermot Mulroney) is forced by weather and fate to deliver his own wife's baby, a "perfect" son. But there's a surprise twin: a girl with Down syndrome — this being 1964, he calls her a "mongoloid" — and he's so appalled he orders his adoring nurse, Caroline (Emily Watson), to whisk her to an asylum, telling wife Norah (Gretchen Mol) that Baby Phoebe died. This lie haunts and threa read more

Casting News: Gretchen Mol Births Daughter, and More

Gretchen Mol (3:10 to Yuma) rounds out the cast of Lifetime's adaptation of Kim Edwards' The Memory Keeper's Daughter, playing a woman who gives birth to twins, one of which has Down syndrome and is secretly raised by another woman. Dermot Mulroney and Emily Watson also star.... Get that sweet image of a bicycle flying against the moon out of your head. Henry Thomas has been cast as a thug who goes into the witness protection program and ultimately becomes a NYPD patrolman in Under, an A&E drama pilot directed by Charles S. Dutton. read more

Casting News: Dermot Mulroney Delivers, and More

Per Variety, Lifetime has tapped Dermot Mulroney and Emily Watson to star in a TV-movie adaptation of the best-selling Kim Edwards novel The Memory Keeper's Daughter (shop Amazon). Set in 1964, the story concerns a doctor who delivers twin babies, but to spare the mother heartache, lies that the one born with Down syndrome didn't survive. Secretly, his nurse raises the child on her own.... Brendan Fehr (Roswell) and Kenneth Choi have joined the ABC Family drama pilot Samurai Girl, the Reporter reports. read more

Love, love, loved the verbal ...

Question: Love, love, loved the verbal ass kicking Emily gave Logan's mom on last Tuesday's Gilmore Girls. It just proves once again the brilliance behind that show.

Answer: I knew you guys were going to eat that up. And not to take anything away from Kelly Bishop's sublime delivery, but major props must go out to Dan Palladino for scripting the classic smack-down. In case you missed any of it, I'm posting the entire monologue here. Feel free to commit it to memory and then recite it to the raging bitch in your life:

EMILY: Ah, yes. Well, let me tell you this, Shira — we are just as good as you. You don't think Rory is good enough for your son? As if we don't know Logan's reputation? We do. But he is welcome in our home anytime, and you should extend read more
