For Your Emmy Consideration – Kyle Chandler & Connie Britton

It is a crime that Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton haven’t been showered with Emmys for their performances as Eric and Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights.

Their chemistry is Continue reading

For Your (International!) Emmy Consideration – Bread, Love and Dreams/Baker King, Kim Tak Goo

I laughed and I cried. I stood up to cheer and I wanted to throw something at the TV screen. I fell in love and I felt the heartbreak.

That’s the kind of emotional involvement one hopes for from any television series.
