Mafiosi-watchers are treated to a mob wife's view of the infamous Bonanno crime family in the comparatively nonviolent but absorbing "Love, Honor & Obey: The Last Mafia Marriage" (Sunday and Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CBS, Channels 2 and 8).

"I heard the bullets going over my head," recalls Salvatore "Bill" Bonanno. "... If they knew what they were doing, I wouldn't be here."
