Two Bridesheads Are Better Than One

Maybe you caught last night's fresh episode of ''Gilmore Girls.'' If you did, you probably liked the ep title — Bridesmaids Revisited.

Of course, ASP's staff paid tribute to Evelyn Waugh's 1945 novel, "Brideshead Revisited." I haven't read it yet, but I suppose I should. "Time Magazine" listed the book in its list of all-time 100 best English-language novels from 1923-2005. The novel was adapted into an 11 ep British miniseries back in 1981 and the story was being adapted for the big screen, but I haven't heard much news about it lately.

While we wait for the next adaptation, we'll do TV GuideSked Revisited. The following eps all honored Waugh's most famous work:
  • Riviera Revisited (''Danger,'' 1/19/1954)
  • Shore Patrol Revisited (''Hennesey,'' 5/8/1961)
  • Deaths-Head Revisited (''The Twilight Zone,'' 11/10/1961)
  • Sleeping Beauty Revisited (''The Farmer's Daughter,'' 10/11/1965)
  • The Nelsons Revisited (''The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet,'' 10/20/1965)
  • Murder Revisited (''Mannix,'' 3/7/1970)
  • Hartford Revisited (''Karen,'' 3/6/1975)
  • The Wild Wild West Revisited (1979) (''The Wild Wild West,'' 5/9/1979)
  • Rizzendough Revisited (''Coach,'' 1/7/1992)
  • Bridesmaid Revisited (''Going to Extremes,'' 1/27/1993)
  • Bridesface Revisited (''The Naked Truth,'' 10/20/1997)
  • McBride's Head Revisited (''Melrose Place,'' 4/12/1999)
  • Louise Revisited (''Sports Night,'' 10/26/1999)
  • Bridesmaid Revisited (''Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place,'' 1/5/2000)
  • Capeside Revisited (a.k.a. About a Girl) (''Dawson's Creek,'' 10/24/2001)
  • Bridesmaids Revisited (''Gilmore Girls,'' 2/28/2006)
