Personal Taste: Episode 9
by | April 30, 2010 | 104 Comments
The drama picks up some steam, gaining on the momentum of last week’s episodes.

by | April 29, 2010 | 111 Comments
If this series wasn’t called Cinderella’s Sister, it would be called “Stepmother’s Daughter,” because what really drives all the conflict, at the core, is these two and their warped relationship.
