This week's episode was fairly ambitious in scope, attempting to tell stories in Fairytale Land both past and present, as well as chronicling Henry and Charming's Project Scorpion in Storybrooke.
On "Nashville," gender dynamics are in flux. The setting is a post-recession world where women have increasingly become the primary breadwinners, large numbers of men have stagnated professionally and who holds the power -- financial, emotional, sexual -- in relationships isn't predetermined.
As a result of this exercise, I've decided to abandon watching anything on the top networks.
The second episode of "Once Upon a Time" Season 2, had a lot more breathing room than the premiere, resulting in an hour that emphasized what the show does best: compelling backstory, fascinating character interplay, and a lot of secrets still to be revealed.
"Broken" was a gripping and competently plotted hour -- none of the scenes felt extraneous and although there was undoubtedly a lot of plot and set-up to get through in 42 minutes, the narrative certainly felt more liberated without the curse.
Jimmy Kimmel's opening statement honoring Philo T. Farnsworth as the creator of the American television at the 64th Emmy Awards was incorrect. It was in fact, General David Sarnoff, who created the American Television Industry as we know it today.
There's something dreadfully un-funny about talking comedy with seriously funny people, but Dan O'Shannon is a different breed of comedian.
Sophia Vergara hollers something encouraging at Julie Bowen from her seat. I love how she steals the show even when she's seated in the audience without a microphone.

The familiar piano intro filled the arena and a bunch of old guys started singing "Sister Christian." Not only did they sound like Night Ranger, they were Night Ranger. With a little Botox.
Showing reruns in primetime is far more lucrative than convention coverage. But if the three major networks want to avoid rightful challenges to the licenses of its stations, they should accept their mandated responsibility to serve the public interest and not just their bottom line.
Even if Barack Obama were born in Kenya (which I don't believe to be the case) the president still would have been a U.S. citizen at birth, because his mother was an American, a fact which nobody to this date denies.
I've been recapping this franchise for a long, long time. Not in recent memory have I been so eager to hit the fast forward button on my DVR to see what happens next.
Can Katie save the day, or is ABC's daytime lineup -- once the most robust at any network -- doomed to a future of mediocrity?
Here are the stars of a bunch of ABC staples just making things up about their shows' next season. It's all in an effort to create a beautiful world of misinformation and lies.
