Robson Green has a name that evokes something found in a Crayola 64 box and eyes that, his name notwithstanding, are piercingly blue enough to evoke comparisons to Paul Newman. But Green is much more than just "GGTW" -- God's gift to women -- he's one of the busiest actors in British TV today. And if his isn't yet a household name over here, several of his series and TV movies have captured the attention of Anglophiles on PBS and BBC America.

"Masterpiece Theatre" meets "General Hospital" Sunday. The venerable PBS flagship series is hitting the skids big time with six bloated hours of what is being euphemistically titled "smart, funny, original entertainment." Code: Soap opera. Britspeak doesn't give it any more credibility. Well, fine. Nothing wrong with a snort of fun. No one has insisted that "Masterpiece Theatre" be forever stuffy while steeping itself in Anglophilia.

When we last saw passionate lovers Owen and Anna at the conclusion of "Reckless," "Masterpiece Theatre's" surprisingly contemporary romance in three chapters, the couple had thrown caution to the wind and run off together, much to the chagrin of Anna's jealous, but terribly unfaithful, husband Richard. "Reckless, the Sequel," which premieres on PBS Sunday night, picks up the thread of that passion, which fortunately burns as hot as ever.
