Proving history can be entertaining and successfully taken to series (albeit one we wish hadn't been rushed along quite to the degree it was), The Astronaut Wives Club hit all the marks.

Brendan Donovan became a man and got married on Ray Donovan. It wasn't without its complications, but there was a rehearsal dinner, a full church wedding with Catholic mass and a reception with beautiful dancing for the lucky couple.
